The Norwegian Tragedy

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, can you tell us something about the young man who on Friday 22 July 2011 blew a bomb in Oslo and then went on to kill nearly 80 young people in a coldblooded shooting spree? What is the spiritual background for this horrific event? ~Lisbeth, Norway

ANSWER: Every soul in a human body on planet Earth is there to learn. Some are engaged in solitary lessons that are internalized struggles not really affecting anyone around them, and then there are those who have made contracts to impact large masses of people—even the entire planet. Your world is in turmoil at this time with conflicts dotting the surface like a measles virus. The response from many has been to arm themselves and hide behind fear and anger, and to strike out at anyone not thinking the same as they do.

Norway is a country whose response to violence is different from the majority in your world. They don’t stand on the corner and shout for revenge or barricade the nation behind armed guards—they respond with openness and love. They seek to understand what can be done to help the victims and to prevent a recurrence. Tolerance and discussions replace fist fights and accusations. Politicians are approachable and truly listen to what the populace has to say.

This terrorist was not from the outside but was home grown. He simmered his bigoted beliefs internally for years, creating his manifesto of malevolence and putting together a stage for its unveiling. He attacked the government, which he thought sterile, and the youth labor party, which welcomed all into its ranks so long as their intention was for the good and growth of the country regardless of race or place of origin. He wanted all to see their attitude of inclusion as a dilution of Norwegian supremacy. Breivik wanted to ignite Norway against anyone who was not full-blown Norwegian, Christian, or elitist. He has not succeeded.

Have you heard of a plan like this in the past? This was the way that the Nazis first incited the people to develop the “über” race. In another age this ploy worked. In another country this might have worked even now, but Norwegians are not lemmings. They are open and giving. Just as they have resisted being drawn into the European Union because they wish to direct their own destiny, they are responding to this tragedy in their own way.

Through this manmade disaster, each incarnate soul that became aware of the carnage has blended this energy into its life’s journey. Those whose contracts made a personal connection to the deaths have played out lessons of betrayal, abandonment, guilt, loneliness, sorrow, lack of control, and unconditional love. Norwegians as a community have joined together as a family with the purpose of feeling the strength they possess as a people. The outside world has been shown a different way to react and process outrageous acts without succumbing to violence or retribution.

The events of Friday 22 July 2011 are a training exercise for the planet. How do people wish to use what they have seen to better understand their own mission here in this life? They have now been exposed to a “loving” way of dealing with a catastrophe. Will they use this as a new model, or will they revert to violence as usual? Will they see that the bigotry of trying to impose their beliefs on others is impossible? Will they become tolerant and respect the pathways others have chosen? Only time will tell.

Take a moment to thank the souls who chose to participate in this exercise so that you might have the full force and effect of this outrage. They have done you a great service to show something not thinkable until experienced. It was part of their chosen lessons, so they thank you as well. Spend some time with the energy of this event and see how it resonates with you. Run through the possible responses from the various points of view, and you will see that you have been party to a graduate course in humanity and life lessons.

The duality balance

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, if Earth holds a balance of positive and negative energy for souls to learn about themselves, how is this balance maintained when negative energy is released to the light? ~David, UK

ANSWER: Earth is a balanced duality of positive and negative energy. The balance does not exist in souls at all times since it would prevent them from learning anything. They must be able to feel the negativity of a lesson and then make the choice that will free them of that negativity, allowing them to learn what the lesson is about.

As some souls are nearing the end of their lessons, more souls are just beginning theirs. Some souls gather up positive energy and some gather in negativity. At the conclusion of a negative lesson, when souls disperse the negativity they now understand, that energy is free to go to another place where it can be used.

Releasing negative energy “into the light” doesn’t change it into positive energy; it merely removes the influence of the negativity from the souls who no longer desire to have it around. These persons become lighter, since negative energy is heavier or more physical, and the light shields the souls from any further effects of the negativity. Negative energy does not become positive energy.

Sometimes the energy that has been released hangs around those who haven’t totally comprehended the lesson and may need a little touch up to fully accept the instruction. Until they enter back into the conditions for learning, they are unaware that the negativity has not departed for elsewhere.

Of all the positive and negative energy on your planet, not all is attached to physical bodies at any one time. Different proportions, as needed by the souls, are attached and the rest is off stage, ready to be called into service as needed.
