Meeting indifference

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, I am planning to move to another country to spend time in an ashram, leaving behind a man I care for deeply. He on the other hand appears indifferent. Will my moving help change the situation I find myself in regarding him? Are we meant to be together eventually?  ~Birgit, UK

ANSWER: You are fully upon your spiritual journey. The time in the ashram will let you further disconnect from the third-dimensional ego-based society and enter into the energy of self. Attachments that have kept you stuck will no longer have a hold upon you. Use the time wisely to “feel” the unconditional love that is within your heart and a part of your essential being.

The gentleman you are leaving behind is not on a path of spiritual growth. He is very content to live in the world and be entwined in its dramas. He could never be happy within an ashram because he would not give up his identity to be just one of a group. Who he is in his own eyes, and what people think of him, is the most important thing in the world to him. You are entering divergent pathways.

When you first met this gentleman he was more open to all the possibilities in the universe but he has become closed to change. He was a marker along the way for you to evaluate yourself. You have complete freedom of choice to decide if you would ever seek to try to get a union to work, but you have no specific contract with him to learn anything more from or with him.

Six steps for growth

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, I am feeling stuck! I have done so much work on myself and still I feel as if I can’t get past my hurdles. I have learned hypnotherapy, energy work, nutrition, meditation, emotional clearing—and still I struggle to feel whole, healthy, and well. What do I need to do to finally get it?  ~Michelle, USA

ANSWER: You have been filling up your tool belt to get to work on yourself. You have, however, forgotten to take the tools out of their storage area in order to use them to journey forward. What you see as hurdles are the lessons which you selected to complete in this lifetime. The training that you have taken gives you the means of recognizing, working on, and gaining the knowledge of these lessons, but thinking you can stop there is a common but incorrect belief. Just taking the courses to get the information is insufficient.

To use the qualities of the energy work you have studied for your soul’s growth, you have to apply a formula. Step one is to identify the desired knowledge (lesson) that is creating your hurdle. Step two is to see which of your tools will enable you to work through that particular situation. Step three is doing the work. Step four is completing the lesson. Step five is spending the time to understand why you had chosen to undertake that lesson and what you actually learned about yourself from that experience. And step six is turning that knowledge into wisdom so that you need never choose to do the lesson again.

Empathic complications

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

QUESTION: Masters, I am confused as to whether I am a natural-born empath or not…I remain confused due to the over-working of my analytical mind. I am on the brink of becoming a doctor, and I would like to know what I can do to help myself and the patients I will be dealing with in the future. How can I, as a doctor, help my patients medically and empathically without compromising myself? I suspect my abilities have caused me difficulties in the past coping with certain things. I was also told indirectly, by a psychic, that I need to be careful who I interact with due to my being like a ‘sponge’ that soaks up whatever energies are around me. The remark made no sense to me until recently. It was recommended that I take salt baths as frequently as possible. Are my energies very imbalanced? Please help, and guide me.   ~NPK,  Malaysia

ANSWER: All souls have the ability to reach out and feel the energy around them. If the person they are sensing is in other than a balanced condition, they may feel unbalanced as well. You are dedicating your life to reaching out and helping others. Having a sense of what is bothering a person that they may be unaware of is a great asset. You can sense the unspoken. This is non-physical and all of your training has focused only on the physical. Of course, you are having trouble differentiating the signals you are receiving.

How do you see acknowledging the non-physical as being a compromise of your life as a doctor? If you were the only sighted physician in your practice, would relying upon your sight compromise the work you are doing with your non-sighted associates? It would rather be a great boon to the practice. You wouldn’t have to tell them step by step why you are doing what you perceive that they cannot. You merely have to follow the needs you sense in the patient.

The problems you sensed in the past came mostly from your conscious mind wanting an explanation for what you were doing which did not result from prior conscious knowledge. If it works, is it necessary to know why it works? Can you explain electricity and how it lights a bulb? If you don’t understand all the aspects of the lamp are you going to remain in the dark?

What you have heard about being a sponge is true. When you totally open yourself to everything that is in a room, you will absorb all unless you filter and/or block it from entering you. This may be done using your intention. When you approach a situation, say something to the universe such as “I wish to feel this energy only so that I may help this patient. I do not need to feel the anxiety of his family. I do not want either to become a part of me.”

Whether you use your abilities is up to you. You have total freedom of choice. The decision to use or to block all is completely up to you. Nothing is right or wrong and you can change your mind at any time you wish. You will be a fantastic physician.
