Who does the planning?

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

QUESTION: Masters, I am confused about “who” does the “pre-birth” planning. Some say it is the “us” that is aware of itself as SOURCE, while others say it is the “us” that is just non-physical, but not aware of “us” as Source. Recently, I read some Seth Material, where Seth described an entity that overcompensated in his pre-birth planning, resulting in difficult life lessons for the incarnated personality that “need not have been” (I understood that to mean “unnecessary”). In another book, Jeshua, a channeled entity, describes the “soul”, that does the pre-birth planning, as a mix of love and non-love, and that the pre-birth planning is to create a lifetime to “scrub” away the non-love from the soul. This seems contradictory to the idea that perfect “Source” versions of us are doing the pre-birth planning. Who is doing the planning, and how can these “planners” be flawed, resulting in “overcompensation”? ~B. Singapore

Answer: The confusion with the various materials you have read is that there is no common description or understanding of what the different words universally mean. When people talk about the soul, do they mean the spirit, the piece that came from Source, or the unconscious aspect of the human being? Or do they mean all of the above? Channels can only speak the words they have in their vocabulary; they cannot use terms from another language unless their body has been taken over by another soul.

The sources you have quoted also come from different periods and locations where terminology varies slightly. We will answer your question defining our words as we go along. The piece broken off from Source is what we refer to as the soul. When it is nonphysical, it may also be called the spirit or reflection of the soul from when it inhabited the body. When the soul is nonphysical and at Home in unconditional love, it has no aspects of negativity or non-love. Once the soul re-enters unconditional love, it is totally aware of its essence of Source energy.

Who makes the plans? The Source-aware soul, which fully understands life lessons and freedom of choice, lays out its desired life. Although each soul is advised by its own council of advisors, they do not make any decisions for the soul. Just as you humans sometimes eat more than your body needs or can stand because your eyes are bigger than your stomach, souls may overestimate the number of lessons they can complete in a single lifetime.

The whole purpose of the planning is to experience situations the soul has never encountered before. Since souls are not aware of the extent of difficulty they may face, it is possible to overfill their plates. This is one of the reasons people may commit suicide – they get overwhelmed by their plans. It is not wrong; it is just another lesson.

Repeating the past

QUESTION: Masters, I have been divorced for almost 14 years. Second marriage of seven cohabiting and 16 years married, have one daughter, helped him throughout medical Interventional Cardiologist education and fellowships (with specialty in “mind playing games”). This is the sixth time going to “Contempt of Court for non and under payment of support obligation” and countless other times for related issues. I’m in late 60’s and financially depend on it. We had many lives together with him being envious, jealousy and resentful of our daughter and me, we took this lifetime the task to help him into spiritual progression. I am exhausted for going to courts. Will this be the last time? Will this be his turning point or are we doomed this whole lifetime with this suffering? ~Jane, USA

ANSWER: You have had a history of being the giver and letting others make all the decisions for you. Your ex sees you as easy to manipulate and does not expect you to stick up for yourself. He also is aware of the anxiety he generates by his actions and finds it to be fun.

Even though he is respected in his profession, he is a naïve, spoiled little boy when it comes to dealing with you and his daughter. You are correct that this is a series of interactions that have lasted many lifetimes. He is still fighting to “win” over you and the obligations that have been imposed on him. He is perfectly capable of fulfilling the Court’s dictates, but he would rather cause you angst. The Court is getting fed up with his antics and is about to come down on him with a threat of jail time if he doesn’t stop playing around.

Nothing is going to make him see the spiritual growth behind this battle. He sees everything through his ego. He has the possibility of seeing it as a life lesson, but that would remove his manipulation. He still perceives you as the one getting things for nothing and is jealous of the “ease” with which he feels you are able to accomplish things. He realizes he would not have made it through school and various residencies without your help, and that makes him resentful that he couldn’t do it alone.

Just keep bringing him back to his responsibility and some day he may step back and see what a jerk he has been – but don’t hold your breath.

Learning to love and accept self

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

QUESTION: Masters, 15 years ago I left my husband and my children’s father because he was a very manipulative person. He thought he knew what was best for me and unconsciously I put ties on myself. I suffered from severe psoriasis and was eventually also seriously ill. At the hospital, I had a spiritual experience: I was filled with light and love and a voice who told me to divorce my husband. This light loved me no matter what I did. At the same time I got deeply in love with another man who helped me with my divorce. We lived together for 12 years. I loved him unconditionally even though he cheated on me. Four years ago, he left me and married another woman. I still grieve and have a feeling of spiritual connection to him. Why is that and why can’t I move on and be happy? ~IA, Norway

ANSWER: Your major life lesson has been to analyze what love is about and how different people experience it and what they see as “love.” To your husband, love meant you would do exactly what he wanted you to do and nothing else. At first you accepted his definition and were enslaved to the relationship. This took all of your power and energy, which made you ill.

When you realized that love had none of these characteristics, you divorced him and moved on. You still had no idea what love was, so you interpreted the compassion of your lover as love. You accepted that he did not offer unconditional love because he spread himself around to others, but it was definitely better than what you had with your husband. When he left you, it was for personal financial reasons and how he could benefit from a marriage to his other woman.

The experience you had in the hospital – the light, the voice, and the feeling of love – was a connection to your soul, your higher self, your nonphysical unconscious. It is always with you; you just need to choose to go back inside and bring it out.

You can’t let go of the spiritual connection you feel you have with the one who walked away because it felt so good. But it was not him – it was you! You only believed it was him because he happened to be there when you first connected with it. Create a life where you are the center of your universe, where you bring out your love. Then you can do whatever you want and can have the love you seek.
