Everyone has only one life

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, could you please explain to me about my past lives? If there is only ONE life how we can have so many past lives? My yoga teacher said that we only have this life. Then what am I experiencing during my past-life regression sessions?     ~Simona, Singapore

ANSWER: Within some belief systems there is a confusion concerning the number of lifetimes that a soul may experience. There is a segment of the human population that believes the only physical existence that a soul has is the very one it is undergoing at the time the question is asked. Most of these are followers of an organized religion that is based upon a system of reward and punishment—the end result of a life being a glorious ascension into heaven or an ignominious descent into hell.

Another segment follows a belief system where the soul enters a series of lives dictated by the bad karma it earns in one lifetime and must work off in others. This continues until a state of enlightenment has been reached, at which time the soul may return Home. Some feel there are a certain number of lives, rather like the proverbial nine lives of the cat, which they must endure before they can return Home.

Each soul does have only one life—a life in which it takes on human form over and over again to try many different types of experiences. The number of experiences—“lives” as human beings call them—is completely a matter of choice for each soul. It may choose to have a hundred or only twenty-five; it depends on how many Earth life-lessons it wants to complete. There are absolutely no requirements.

You have chosen to experience many varied lifestyles and lessons. This lifetime is all about using clarity to see the core issue of your lessons. You are also dealing with accepting your true essence and the magnificence that accompanies it. All of this you are doing by going inside and sensing the spark within. At the present, yoga is a major tool for you.

Connecting with the beyond

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, I believe that I could develop my ability to communicate with the spirit world as my deceased father sometimes talks to me unexpectedly. Do you think this is something I should do?             ~Phil, UK

ANSWER: You already are a channel; you are just having problems with your tuning. Your father has been around you for quite some time. He talks to you constantly but you are tuned in only part of the time. This is not necessarily a bad thing. You don’t want the radio blasting at you when you are engaged in other matters.

Connecting with the beyond takes the ability to be able to pick up the various vibrations emanating from the other side. Souls in different states of acclimation to Home have different wavelengths when they seek to connect. The receiver, or channel, must be tuned to that vibration in order to hear. This is the reason that a receiver may be able to communicate with certain souls and not with others.

Although it is possible for souls to get your attention when you are concentrating on other matters, generally you must be in an open, unoccupied state of being for them to make firm contact. A perfect receiving state can be achieved while  meditating, or while engaging in a repetitive motion which takes no thought.  These  states free your mind for other things, such as picking up vibrations from beyond.

Spending time talking to, helping, or receiving information from the other side is a freedom of choice issue. How do you feel about doing this? Do you feel you have the time to dedicate to this task? Does it create any fears or doubts in your mind? And if it does, do you feel this is something from which you may learn? The choice is yours!

Why single status?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, I always wonder whether or not my continuing state of being single is something that I have chosen in order to be available to someone at a certain time, or if it is something I could really change. I am torn between feeling as though there is a destined love relationship somewhere in my future and also wondering if I perhaps chose to remain single for a different reason. It does not seem to be in my control, though I admit that ultimately it must be! I have wonderful and loving friends but am often confused by the lack of romantic relationships in my life, and I appreciate any kind of insight you could give.                 ~Louisa, USA

ANSWER: This lifetime is all about the discovery of the various aspects of love. You are a very giving individual who can easily identify with others and their relationships. You see a romantic relationship as the ultimate expression of love when it really is not. It is possible to truly love another in a relationship only to the degree and extent that you are able to love yourself.

You were brought up believing that it was not right to be self-loving as that was selfish. You were taught to direct all your love outwardly. For this reason you do not know how to love yourself. Because you do not love yourself, any potential partner picks up an energy around you that says, “I don’t love myself.” Their response is, “If she doesn’t love herself there must be something wrong with her, so I’ll look for someone else.”

As you already know, you can change the pathway you are currently following using your freedom of choice. While this single status is one of your life-lessons, all you have to do is recognize it, work on a solution, and you will then experience the next step—a romantic relationship.

In a quiet state ask yourself what it is you do not like about yourself. Also find what you are hiding from. What is it you will not face? All these “ghosts” are scaring away romance. Banish the ghosts and welcome the gentlemen.
