QUESTION: Masters, I have been working as a healer (reiki) and I also give messages to clients through tarot and from meditations I do with angels and guides. I have used my abilities for the good of others. Yet, I have come across many who see it as work of the devil and have condemned what I do as evil and have cited that the Bible is against this work. This has had a very negative impact on me. I know I am being of service but am struggling. Any thoughts on this? ~Karen, USA
ANSWER: There are two parts of your life. The first is the activities in which you interact with the energies of the spiritual world, and the second derives from the authority and power you assign to what other people say. All souls have freedom of choice. Their lives are regulated by the belief systems they accept using these choices.
The information to develop these beliefs comes from what ideas, thoughts, and societal and religious rules and regulations you choose to include in your personal belief package. Humans exist in a duality of negative and positive choices, and what you choose to accept is up to you.
The negative world is controlled by the ego, which has to judge everything. People are not happy unless they can tell you if they are better than, wealthier than, or greater than someone else. Many laws and rules are written to direct humans to act in a certain way so that their thoughts and actions may be controlled to conform to the beliefs the writers desire. You choose what you want your life to be ruled by.
The positive world has no judgment; it is filled with unconditional love in which people choose to be happy, making their own decisions and allowing their feelings to determine what resonates with them. You have to be able to identify with your internal feelings to be true to yourself. If you accept what others say – maybe because it has always been interpreted thusly – you are saying those people know better what is part of your path than you do.
At one time the sun was believed to rotate around the Earth and the planet was believed to be flat. Though people were tortured and murdered unless they accepted these beliefs, science has since proven that both “facts” are false. Things can have an impact on you only if you accept them to be true in your reality. Nothing is right or wrong in your journey. But always ask yourself: How do I feel about these beliefs?
Remember: the nonphysical, spiritual world is composed only of unconditional love.
