Drugs and family

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, I have a question which I think is becoming a common problem around the world. My son has a drug habit which resulted in him becoming detached from reality, and to cut a long story short, he has recently been admitted to a mental health hospital due to a psychotic episode and depression. I have tried to pray and send Reiki to him regularly but wonder whether I am helping or stopping his soul’s progression. I do wonder whether the effect of drug taking has weakened his auric field and allowed attachments to affect his behaviour. Although I feel that I do all I can to support him, I feel his antipathy towards me particularly rather than anyone else. Can you help? ~Wendy, UK

ANSWER: It is very unfortunate that a mother cannot help her children, in the same way she could when they were infants, as they start making their own choices. Souls all over the world are turning to drugs for a number of reasons, mostly having to do with running away from everyday life.

Your son found life to be painful when he was placed in a position of responsibility. In a mood of rebellion he also sought new experiences which he knew would not be sanctioned by his family or others. Under the influence of drugs his inhibitions dissolved and he allowed himself to venture wherever things looked soothing or adventurous.

Another aspect of drug intoxication is being able to reach into your subconscious mind. This permits access to your higher self containing information of your deepest anxieties created by your life lessons. Drug euphoria also opens the doorway to communication with non-physical beings—what usually gets diagnosed as schizophrenia or psychosis. The subject cannot tell what is physically real and what is not.

You correctly deduced that the protective auric field is disturbed; that, plus an invitation to anything that wants to come in, creates a platform for attachments. Once the person is virtually incapacitated via medication, these attachments generally detach and look for someplace more active.

Your Reiki will never interfere with a soul’s journey. The universal life force energy is intelligent and goes where it is needed. In this case it is reinforcing your son’s reasons for his behavior and helping him to break through his understanding of his actions. He isn’t completely ready yet, but it will be very helpful when he is ready.

“Freaking” the family

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, as I journey to a self of a higher level of awareness, how do I protect my family from the fear of me changing? Recently my daughter shared with me that she is scared of me changing and is “freaked” out by my new interests in the spiritual world. I worry that my husband will change his views of me too and his concerns about what I talk about to my children. Should I keep all of my journey to myself or can I share this with my family? Thank you for helping me understand how to protect the ones I love.  ~Catharine, Singapore

ANSWER: Society prepares everyone to anticipate that the whole world will function in a pre-determined fashion. As your daughter grew up you shared your beliefs with her, and now, to her dismay, you are changing your beliefs! What this is doing is rocking the foundation of the rules she has come to live by, and it is very scary for her.

Your husband thinks this is just a fad that will wear off and you will return to the person he married. It now becomes a freedom of choice issue whether you live your life for yourself or for those members of your family and friends who are upset about your choices. You may see this as protecting the ones you love, but it is really depriving them of the opportunity to make their own choices.

If you continue to follow the feelings that began your journey, you are honoring yourself. If you revert to your old beliefs or limit them by what others say, you are in fact saying they are more important than you are. You would be giving control over your decisions to those who have no idea how you feel or what resonates within you. Neither choice is more right or wrong than the other. It is a matter of following your internal feelings and not the external world.

Most humans fear change regardless of how small or insignificant it may be. They want certainty in their life, but if you don’t change you don’t evolve. The speed of evolution is left up to the individual.

Neanderthals = Lemurians?

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, are the Neanderthals the Lemurians we read about in metaphysical circles? If not, how sentient were the Neanderthals? What path were they on? How did their different brain shape affect their consciousness? How did they die out, and why? ~Margaret, USA

ANSWER: No, the Lemurians were a group of highly evolved creatures who had the ability to communicate with their minds and create whatever they chose to manifest. Unfortunately, part of the group decided they wished to play around with “cold fusion,” with explosive results. They broke up and sank their continent of Mu into the ocean. The westernmost edge is what is now known as the Hawaiian Islands, and the easternmost part is on the continental United States in the vicinity of Mt. Shasta, California.

Just before the catastrophe, a group of Lemurians migrated to the old volcanic tunnels within Mt. Shasta and other parts of California reaching toward the sea. They formed a series of cave dwellings which are called Telos. They are in a slightly different vibration, so humans rarely see any of them.

Neanderthals were a stage of progression in the evolution of today’s homo sapiens. Sentience is the ability to be responsive to, or conscious of, sense impressions. We sometimes call it being “aware.” Some people declare that a sentient being must be able to be empathetic to the plight of other beings.

The Neanderthals were progressing through this phase of growth. The shape of their brain had little impact on the development of this ability. The pre-frontal lobes held the “group knowledge” or instincts that the earlier man had worked through. The higher functions were being processed in other regions of the brain that previously had not been used. A combination of evolution and the periodic weather cycles caused the extinction of the Neanderthals.

Mankind is going through another evolution as we speak, with opening what you call psychic pathways. To that end, you are redeveloping the skills of the Lemurian and Atlantean races. The size of your skull is deceptive because currently you are using such a small percentage of your brain. The changes occurring will activate a larger section of the brain and re-establish mind communication.
