Fulfilling one’s life purpose

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

QUESTION: Masters, I know my life purpose is to help and teach others about spirituality and the afterlife especially loss and grief. I want to write books and start a website to put the wheels into motion so to speak but I don’t feel right charging people for my services, I want to help them for free but I struggle financially in general. I know fulfilling my life purpose is essential and will enable me to go home again where I may be reunited with my loved ones. How can I fulfill my life purpose, still afford to live and pay the bills without taking from those who are struggling to get by like myself? ~Sara, New Zealand

ANSWER: Your true purpose, as is true with every soul who chooses to enter into the duality of Earth, is to learn the lessons you pre-selected and realize who you are as a soul and what that means to your human body. Once you know the powers and abilities that come with being a piece of Source energy, you can then choose to assist others.

First and foremost, your purpose is to help yourself, not others. You cannot help others unless you love and understand yourself. You have experienced loss and grief but have not dealt with their repercussions in your life. Writing or journaling will help you work through these lessons and bring wisdom about the subject. You must understand in order to assist others to also understand.

Aspects of what you desire to do, such as grief counseling, are accepted fields of work, and income is expected for the group leaders. Part of your concern comes from not knowing exactly what services you will be able to provide for others because you are confused and searching for direction.

You have these thoughts because you think you must perform some service to be rewarded with seeing your loved ones again. All souls may return to unconditional love and the presence of their soulmates when they leave their bodies merely by wishing it. There are no entrance requirements; no prior service is needed.

Look into types of counseling or life coaching courses that will earn you a certification accepted by many insurance companies. The money will then be coming from benefits and not the pockets of needy people.

Continue to work on your fears and doubts because they are the lessons you have not completed. When you have defined your path, start a website to draw people to you.

Stepping into the unknown

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

QUESTION: Masters, for 6 years I have had an on/off relationship and he ended it again. We are never very mean to each other and we both are good people, so it hurts me a lot that he left me, when I was ready to make a family. When I was with him I started to drink to feel good and not insecure. I understand that is not a sign of a healthy relationship. Why do I still want to be with him? And I feel like we should have family together. I am not happy with him or without. Where do I get the courage to reach for my own dreams and live my own life? Will I ever find a man who I’d love and who would love me? Many have asked me out but I have no interest. ~Emilia91, Finland

ANSWER: You do not like to assume the responsibility of making decisions about long-term living. You have an idea that you would like to have a family, but you have not found a person who is of the same mind and intention. You sense this man is toxic to you, and that was what drove you to drink – to hide from the realities of the situation. When you have to go into a bottle to flee unhappiness, you are in the wrong place.

You are insecure in all major decisions and look to others to tell you what to do. It is time to grow up and acknowledge that you cannot move forward unless you choose and take that first step. You want to be with him because he makes decisions. His presence has created a comfort zone for you where you know exactly what he will do, even if it is not to your liking.

Why would you want to have a family in this environment? What kind of energy would you be placing those poor children in? Would you have been able to thrive in such chaos?

You fear the unknown because you have no control over it and do not know what is going to happen. You need to accept that you are a piece of Source and have the ability to create and bring to yourself what you desire to experience. You lack self-confidence and think you deserve everything that has happened to you. Get it through your mind that that is not so.

Visualize the type of man you could see yourself creating a family with. Believe that you are worthy of him. Send an invitation out to the universe to have him come to you – and then, most importantly, when he asks you out, go! You must do the work to reap the rewards.

What stops hypnosis?

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

QUESTION: Masters, why are some people not hypnotizable even though they want to be? What could be done to help such people to increase their chance of having a regression experience? ~Anonymous UK

ANSWER: Hypnosis is nothing more than a guided meditation with subjects who are able to shut off their thinking, interfering, conscious mind to follow down a path as directed. While people will always say they want to be hypnotized, they unconsciously fear giving up what they perceive as control of their life. Some of this comes from having watched stage hypnotists where subjects are made to bark like dogs or act like apes.

Most of the time when subjects presents themselves to the hypnotist, they claim it is for one purpose; then, when going through pre-talk, it is discovered they need to resolve some other issue before they can proceed as requested. Strong willed, controlling individuals find it very difficult to get out of their own heads. They need to be in control and, unconsciously, cannot relax and let another control their thinking.

To assist such people to prepare for a hypnotic procedure, such as a past-life regression, the practitioner must inspire confidence and trust. During several meetings before the procedure, the practitioner should relax the clients with music, meditation, and then pleasant visualizations of places with which they are familiar and in which they feel safe.

Be sure the clients have not consumed caffeine or mood-altering drugs prior to any session. Even an overdose of nicotine from chain smoking will interfere.

Begin any session with taking clients to their safe place and then, proceeding back in time, innocuously asking about changes in their place. If they are peaceful and relaxed, begin to take them to a place in the past where they can learn something useful about their current life. Once they have had a comfortable experience in their past, they will be able to easily return.
