Newby awareness

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, I have recently become aware of the spiritual world from two friends who say we are connected in a spiritual way. They told me that I ‘was not human’ and was actually a spirit or possibly a ‘gray’ (I think that’s the spelling).  I feel I already knew there was something beyond the weird experiences of human life, and have always been interested in horoscopes and trying to find out what I was in a past life (if I have been on Earth before) just to have that little belief of something which is so magnificent and powerful. I feel like I need to know my purpose and lessons here on Earth and would just like some basic knowledge about the spiritual world. I’ve also recently got a pendant so I can communicate with the spirits and them replying with yes or no. I’m just so confused and interested! ~Emily, England

ANSWER: Welcome to the beginnings of consciousness. All human beings have an energetic essence within them that comes from a piece of Source and is called a soul. All souls are connected in the energy of that essence (often referred to as the Oneness). It is not completely contained within the physical shell you refer to as a body. The non-physical aspects may be called “spirit.”

“Gray” is a term that humans have given to certain species of souls experiencing a physical existence not on Earth (i.e., aliens). The term refers to their skin coloration. You are not currently a gray, nor are you primarily in spirit form.

You have been on Earth a number of times and have also chosen to live on other planets. Your Earth lives have been many and varied. Your purpose, as with all souls going through a physical life, is to learn as much about your true essence as you can and then assimilate your awesome powers into your present life. The lessons you have picked can be recognized by the things that you fear or the things that generate doubts in your mind. Each of these has an understanding into which you need to delve.

Your interest in horoscopes and pendants or pendulums can give you some guidance to see characteristics that may have been overlooked. Start spending more time letting your feelings give you your answers instead of relying on your thinking or the advice of others.

During this beautiful awakening period you will be forming new belief systems—the rules you accept as guidelines for your life. You have the freedom to choose those beliefs you wish to follow. Don’t let others tell you what to believe or how to live your life. Always ask yourself, “What do I feel is the best thing for me?” Don’t accept anything blindly. This is the spiritual journey.

Take a look at the archives of our answers to people. You will find a ton of information that will appear to be written for you—and it’s all free!

Plan for ascension?

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, I constantly hear that we create our reality which is true. What confuses me is people say to plan and create for what you want when you ascend. I don’t know what I want. Nothing appeals to me that I have knowledge of in this reality and I don’t know what is in my new reality. Is there something wrong with me? I feel like I’ve missed something. ~Barbara, US

ANSWER: You haven’t missed anything except good advice from someone who knew what they were talking about. Everyone does create their own reality, but creating your reality has nothing whatsoever to do with ascension. Currently you are incarnate in a human body. It is subject to the third-dimensional reality, which is controlled by the ego whose tool is judgment. Enlightenment is shedding the need to use judgment, and merely observing and participating in the flow of the universe.

Ascension is entering into enlightenment, or returning Home from the physical body into a universe of unconditional love. To talk of needing to create a reality at that time is to say that what is at Home must be changed into something you judge to be more to your liking. Unconditional love is a hard existence to beat.

If your ascension is one of physically transitioning out of your body, it is true that you first experience the things you believe you should, which can be illusory. However, all souls eventually “see the light” and return Home. (Read all the after-life stories related by the souls who spoke in the book How I Died, and what I did next.)

As in the above case, reality is also an illusion. Your illusion may be complex: full of people, continuing lessons, and restrictions; or simple: sharing your past experiences with others in an arena of unconditional love. Live your life fully by learning the lessons that are still affecting you. Rid yourself of all fears and judgments. Embrace the unconditional love that resides in your soul. Open yourself to feeling all things around you. Become a part of the universal energy flow and you won’t miss anything!

Peaceful marriage wanted

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, I am currently going through a very difficult time in my relationship with my husband. I am at a loss as to what to do. I have 2 children aged 18 and 15, so whatever decision that I take will impact them. I wish to have a peaceful relationship with my husband but don’t understand why each time we seem to be in conflicts. Please Masters, tell me what I should do? ~Sheila, Singapore

ANSWER: Your husband is using conflict as an easy means of distancing himself from you. Your children are already being affected by the situation between their parents because they feel the discord in the atmosphere. They are constantly being bombarded by decisions as to whose side to take in the battles.

As in all marital problems, the children feel that they are somehow responsible for the difficulties their parents are experiencing. They feel if they had better grades, caused less trouble, helped out more at home, hadn’t responded in such and such a manner, then the world would be more peaceful. They question why you allow this warfare to continue.

Your husband has no concern for what is happening. He wants out of any responsibility for the family. He is moving on and it is time for you to decide if it would be better if you did as well.

You fear change, yet you are miserable in your current situation. Any decision you make will allow you to learn more about yourself. You must respect yourself and accept you do not deserve to be treated in this fashion. Make any decision based on your feelings; the children will understand when they examine all the facts.
