Metaphysical beings

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, a psychic once told me that I was “a metaphysical being.” What does that mean in relation to me and my experiences in the past, present, and future?  ~Michelle, USA

ANSWER: All incarnate souls encased in physical bodies are metaphysical beings because they are much more than just the physical body that is visible. The soul is an eternal energetic piece of the whole universe. It has chosen to have an individual experience in an attempt to obtain an understanding of certain physical and emotional sensations. The soul calls these life-lessons and plans for them before it enters the body.

Only souls who have entered upon a mission of discovery as to their true nature, or what you call the process of enlightenment, begin to see their metaphysical nature. Their past can then be accessed to bring forth knowledge that will assist in this lifetime to speed up this particular journey.

Then the present becomes more vibrant in that you are totally aware of everything that is happening around you, and not just what you are focused on accomplishing. This allows you to gain additional knowledge about human life and experiences from the situations of others. The future opens up as you complete the lessons you sought to learn, and you can begin to help others to understand who they are, which increases your wisdom of self.

Psychic practices

Question: Masters, does Chinese fortune telling, such as i-ching, face-features analysis, palm analysis, bazi analysis, and poker-card reading, provide accurate insights into our future? Can most practitioners be trusted?    ~Marilyn, Singapore

ANSWER: All of the various practices that you have mentioned, in the hands of an experienced practitioner, can give an insight into the way that the energy is flowing around a particular person or event. They can give you an historical perspective of how you, with your particular background, in that specific setting, have had your life play out. That is true for the moment of the reading, until you or other people involved in your life exercise freedom of choice to change the way you or they had planned to act.

Since each person is unique, and experiences life with a different set of souls from those portrayed in history, the actual events can only give you a propensity for something to occur, but not a certainty. What you are obtaining is an indication of the direction of the energy flow around you. Does it not always help to be able to see which way the current is flowing so that you may take advantage of it and expend less energy to get somewhere?

Practitioners are as varied as the leaves on a tree—each has a different shape, no two are the same. There is no way to say that the readers you have been exposed to are all open enough to sense and report the intricate energy streams they use within their crafts. It is for you to open yourself to their energy. See if they feel open to you; test to make sure they are not inputting their particular prejudices. How does what they are saying feel to you inside? If you resonate with the reading it is accurate for you, but don’t let your desires for an outcome color the way you interpret the results.

Poisoning thoughts

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, is it possible for a living person to send thoughts into the mind of another living person with the intent to change the receiving person’s way of thinking or influence decisions? I have a feeling this has been done to me by a woman who feels threatened by my energy.    ~Angela, Australia

ANSWER: How much of your time do you spend wishing that something would occur or be true? You are sending thoughts out to those around you and trying to influence the flow of the energy coming to you. Some souls have a very strong, forceful flow of intention moving out from them. This is like a person who has a strong voice that may be heard over a great distance.

It is always possible for people to attempt to influence you. Every day, friends tell you what they think about the way you are doing something. Some try through intimidation to get you to accept their ideas. Media constantly implants thoughts in your head about products to purchase which they say you cannot live without.

Regardless of where the thoughts come from—a well-meaning friend, a marketing company, or this woman who seeks to destroy your energy—what happens is up to you. In each of these cases the effort to shape you must stand up to your freedom of choice to make it a part of your consciousness.

All these influences become part of your belief system. If you accept blindly what is inside your head, implanted from the outside, you are saying that those ideals should control your actions. If, instead, you question everything that you do unconsciously to see if it is really what you want to do, then you are controlling yourself. No one can control you without your permission. That does not stop someone from trying. Just deflect their shouting and make your own decisions.
