QUESTION: Masters, I´m 34 and still living with my mom. I`ve been wanting to live in my own house for years but never felt confidence that it was the right moment (is there such a thing?) and I was afraid to not being able to support myself, as my mother has always told me so. I left my job for a more satisfying and joyful career (I´m a full time holistic therapist now) and want to move to another city to my own home. Am I abandoning my mom? Or being impulsive? Also I can´t figure out where, which city? Should I move right now or wait some months for financial safety. Will I have financial safety? ~Fernanda, Brazil

ANSWER: You are always where you need to be when you are there. The “need” is generally to learn a lesson that you have been avoiding or ignoring. You are changing some of the beliefs by which you have structured your life. You’re on what might be called a self-empowerment journey. Your mother has been your restraining strap. She has convinced you that you need to stick around because you are unable to take care of yourself; what she really wants is for you to stick around and take care of her.

Anyone who has spent as much time as you have thinking about and creating a new career and new destination is not being the least bit impulsive. You are still in fear-of-change mode because you have been told you can’t take care of yourself or make a living. The truth is that you can do anything you believe you can – anything you don’t prevent yourself from doing.

Your mother will be fine. She will act as though you are abandoning her so that you do not leave her. She likes to control you and will continue if you let her. The choice is yours. It is time she started taking complete care of herself. There is nothing that will prevent her from doing so.

Let your intuition tell you where and when to relocate. If you remain around there, your mother will find a way to ensnare you. To establish a steady clientele you need to be where the demand for your services exists and where you are available for people to return for more treatments. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to move.

Study the need for your work in cities that appeal to you. Reach out to those you know who are in the field and get some opinions; then meditate on the subject and see what feels right.

Lies and forgiving yourself

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

QUESTION: Masters, I discovered 4 months ago my partner, despite a reconciliation based on assurances of honesty, has betrayed me a second time. I recognize my responsibility in choosing to return to him and believe he was different, but I’m having a hard time releasing the pain and struggling to understand why he would go to such lengths to deceive causing us both real stress. I realize my role is to let go, but I find it hard not to wonder if there will be a karmic rebalance or if he was meant to be a life partner that I have lost? I don’t want to judge but his choice to lie caused us both such pain and he returns to a marriage, which begs why? I know I chose this but I could do with some help to understand why he did this for years a second time? ~Louisa, UK

ANSWER:  How many times do you need to allow yourself to be duped? How many times will you see that your wishing, wanting, and hoping will not make it so?  Accept the situation for what it is. You really wanted to be able to believe him and not have all the time you invested in the relationship go for naught.

The pain you are feeling is more from your disappointment in your decision to trust him. He is incapable of feeling remorse or sensing the depth of your pain. In his life everything is about him and what he desires. It is time to forgive yourself and see this as a life lesson you chose in order to understand that you can be responsible only for your own actions.

It is time to stop living in the past and to begin a new life from this day forward. Accept that each of you is working on your own life lessons. Forgive yourself for being such a trusting, good-hearted person. Accept that his path is egotistical and self-serving. He doesn’t know any better. His judgment is all about his wants; he has very little, if any, pain from his choices – just a little inconvenience. Make the choice to create a wonder world for yourself.

Life lessons are usually short-term situations you pass through and then go on to something else. Unless you cling to this experience, in a while it will just be a thing of the past. There are other romantic potentials out there. Don’t judge what either of you did. There is no such thing as karmic rebalance; each of you uses experiences to gain wisdom, and that is all.

Didn’t listen to guides

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

QUESTION: Masters, I was guided by my spirit guides, however I did not follow them as I was influenced by negative energies. It has affected my life and my family members as well. I wasn’t doing spiritual practice at that time, hence couldn’t remember at the right time. My mind was completely clouded with negative energies. What should I do now, as I have gone quite against what was told to me. What I was told to avoid. My destiny has completely changed due to the negative energies affecting my life. Will GOD forgive me for all the mistakes I have made? What should I do to go on the right path now? Also, would like to know does a soul die if the soul does not follow the righteous path? ~LVM, India

ANSWER: You have all the answers to create a solution for future movement and understanding. Use the knowledge you have. You are aware that negativity defeats any good aspects of growth, so start from there. Even if those around you spend all their time in negativity, you don’t have to do the same.

Start the new part of your life by acknowledging when you are in negativity, sending it packing, and resetting your life into positive, unconditional love. If you sense fear or doubt, you are in negativity. If you feel euphoric or blissful, you are in positive love. Be aware of how you feel all the time and you may direct your life as the guides had advised you.

Life contains no mistakes that God or anyone else needs to forgive. Life lessons are trials that allow you to see what works well in your life and you wish to continue doing. Negativity just shows you things you do not have to repeat, but they are not mistakes. People only truly learn from the instances that do not work out for them.

Before coming to Earth you decide things you would like to try. You do not set up a single path you do not want to deviate from. Some of the negativity experiences are on your path so you may learn. There is no righteous path. Souls never die; they just go into another body and begin something new.
