Gathering of energies

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, when I was 3 or 4 years old, I started to speak to the spirits who were around me. My parents were so freaked out about what they called my increasingly darkening character they had someone block me from contacting the spirit world. Is the negative energy that I could not handle when I was young the reason why I am so bitter and judgmental? Or is it because I feel very strongly and am sensitive to energies? Or because I have a very old soul or perhaps even an angel soul and can’t stand the way people choose to live when they’re here? I feel very strongly that I came here to experience life again to enjoy things. Is this the case?      ~Delano, Netherlands

ANSWER: You first began to talk to friends on the Other Side as a child. Their energy drew negative discarnate energies into the conversation. You were unable to distinguish between the two types of energy. It was more fun to interact with the more apparently physical souls who, in your case, were the negative forces that remained behind, developing your darkening character. Your parents, out of their concern, had these negative energies blocked from influencing you. However, this has no direct connection with your current daily issues.

Bitterness, negative judgment, intolerance—none of these is an attribute of an old soul. A pure soul watches the foibles of the physical world, learns from them, and does not have a visceral reaction to the dark energies. You, like all incarnate beings, came to Earth to experience life in all its possibilities. These include learning what is in balance and what needs to be balanced—but only within yourself.

One of your major lessons in this lifetime is to learn about third-dimensional energies and their appearance of seeming to be in the higher dimensions. Duality, your own negative and positive, exists only within the third dimension. To raise your vibration out of conflict you need to be able to see situations as things to evaluate and not to judge. You can only make decisions for yourself. You cannot influence the actions of others. It takes time away from your journey to be concerned about the lives of others. Go inside and see why you are feeling these strong emotions. They are signposts of lessons you have not completed.

Knowing your truth

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, I find these times quite confusing and depressing as it seems hard to find and feel that you are being told the truth. Many claim to tell the truth and to possess an authority to deliver the truth. My question is simple: is there life after death, and if so, am I where I should be and achieving what I should be doing at this time?               ~Stephen, UK

ANSWER: We would like first to comment on what is the “truth”. The truth varies with the individual and may change from time to time even within each person. The truth is a combination of what you see, hear, feel, need, and accept. Initially, you are set up for your truth by parents, teachers, and all whom you see as authority figures. They provide the truths, or belief systems, by which you lead your life. Then, when you finally realize you have total freedom of choice as to what you accept into your life, you choose your own truth independent of outside influence.

To reach your truth and to feel comfortable with it you should take all of the information which feels right to you, spend some time with it, and then adopt that which completely resonates with you. Do not feel bad if, at some point in the future, the truth you have accepted suddenly no longer serves you. Thank the energies and send them on their way, while you find a concept that now resonates within you.

The universal truth is that the soul never ceases its existence. It is immortal and chooses to have varied experiences which it accomplishes by coming to Earth in a number of scenarios. Within each life it encases itself in a physical form which allows it to interact with other souls similarly attired. When the soul finishes a particular experience it returns Home to its completely energetic state to plan for its next adventure in physicality and learning.

Each one of these roles begins with a birth and ends with a death, but these only affect the body that has been adopted, not the soul itself. When you are engaged in one of these lives, you are always exactly where you have chosen to be when you are there. As long as the soul is aware of its surroundings, and not running away from them, it is achieving the knowledge it incarnated to experience.

Am I crazy?

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, I’m not sure what is going on with me. All my relationships are going downhill, whether with family or with intimates. I’m told that a lot of things, or almost everything, is my fault. But, in my heart, I don’t feel that I am wrong. They say I live in a different reality, that I’m crazy, and always have to be the one to listen to every one of them, but I am never heard! Do I live in a different reality? Am I really wrong? If I am, what can I do to right my wrongs?             ~Amanda, USA

ANSWER: Are you living in a different reality from family and friends? Yes. Is that wrong? Depends upon your perspective. To you, you are who you choose to be. The ones who tell you that you are crazy are the same people who want you to accept their vision of life blindly without questioning its application to yourself, and to “just do it.” Is it your “fault” that you will not cave in to their desires? Well, yes, it is. In your choice to honor yourself and your feelings, you have created a chasm between yourself and the school of think-alike fish who are your family and friends. They see your life as wrong because you will not join their group without questioning their direction.

Does this make you wrong? Absolutely not. Following your innermost directions is part of your journey of life. Your journey is distinct from that of everyone with whom you have come in contact in this life so far. You have wasted your time in trying to get them to listen to you and understand your decisions for your life. They are not ready to be where you are.

Even intimate situations you have entered have involved those most like your family because you thought that was what society is all about. Divorce yourself from the need to be accepted by them, which you have confused with their loving you, and venture forth. There are people out there who relish being with those who know enough about themselves to choose to be different from the throng.

Your first step is to get comfortable with yourself. Understand your wants and desires, and then go looking for them. Don’t let the ideas of others influence your life. Stop thinking in terms of things being either right or wrong. Start evaluating whether you choose to be doing what you are doing and being who you really are.
