Expectations and trying to duplicate others

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

QUESTION: Masters, even after reading so many books, talking to so many spiritual people, attending many workshops on different spiritual subjects and trying hard to meditate, (in which I never succeeded), I am still the same person, full of anger, negativity and without a sense of purpose in this life. I even tried to take a PLR session, which I think failed as I could not be regressed to any past life. Is my interest in spirituality any way connected to any of my past lives or I am not yet eligible to pursue the path of spirituality? ~PMS, India

ANSWER: All the reading and studying that you mention will only allow you to see what has worked for other people. There is no guarantee that it will assist you or be appropriate for you at all. You have a resistance to letting go; you need to feel you are in control at all times. This keeps you from getting into a meditative, mindless state, and from allowing your unconscious to take over during hypnosis, thereby  preventing a connection to your past lives.

The spiritual path is one of letting go of the ego judgment that controls society and merely evaluating what is occurring around you. Anger means that you disagree with what someone has said, believe you have not been treated fairly by others, or are mad at yourself for your lack of accomplishments. All of these things have to do with life lessons.

Your purpose for coming to Earth is to find out who you are (a soul) and learn the powers and abilities that that knowledge brings with it. This is a spiritual path, so if you examine this, you are pursuing spirituality.

The first step in awareness is learning what is negative and what is positive. Negativity is tied to the ego, and positivity is where unconditional spiritual love can be found. Examining how you feel and react to events will tell you how you are doing in becoming a spiritual being. If you feel anger and do nothing about it, you are not spiritual at all. If when you sense the anger you go into the feeling and find out what it is connected to and then deal with the cause, you are moving along the spiritual path.

Whenever you find yourself entering into a judgment, replace that opinion with an evaluation of the necessity of that action within your life. Love yourself for being able to make the choice of going from anger into love. Once you begin consciously making positive choices, you will be able to go into a mindless state with no judgment, which most call meditation.

Organized religion and spiritual abilities

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

QUESTION: Masters, I’ve been struggling a bit with so called spiritual gifts and religion. I feel like those engrossed in organized religion are forcefully breaking contact with me, and at times blaming me for not being strictly religious. But they are interested in learning things from my small psychic ability? This is somewhat contradicting at times. How can I use this in the future to help others? Should I continue to try and block this ability? It can be a bit scary sometimes. ~Erika, US

ANSWER: Belief systems adopted by a person in order to bring control to their lives frequently arise from religious affiliations. Organized religions are established to get devotees to accept everything they are told and also to try to convert others to those beliefs. When you think for yourself and believe only what resonates with you, many label you as heretic, dangerous, and evil. Their hierarchy tells them to avoid you because you believe and talk about things that threaten the foundation of their organization.

Since you don’t “toe the line” of their belief system, church members are told to stay away from you almost as if you were contagious. To an extent, you are infectious because you may get them to question their beliefs and loosen the hold their group has on them.

What you do with your ability is up to you. You are very intuitive and can sense energy. There is really nothing to fear if you are open and just allow it to happen. You do “know” things that are unapparent to others simply because you have “tapped in” to the universal energy stream.

To the religions, these feelings and answers come from “out there,” and they consider that to be evil. Does it feel evil to you? Ask your guides to ensure that you communicate only with beings of the light who come for the highest and greatest good.

While your associates feel safe adhering to the tenets of their religion, they are curious about knowledge coming from spirits. There are so many television shows and movies lately that talk about psychics, past-life regressions, and reincarnation that their curiosity overcomes the admonitions of their religions. Disclose what feels comfortable to you.

Sharing your experiences will allow all these skeptics and those brainwashed by their religions to sample a substitute and give them an alternative to where they stand at this time. Sharing your beliefs also reinforces them within you so they feel more a part of who you are.


Relying on “proof”

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

QUESTION: Masters some things can only be proved by contradiction, by assuming a negative and following it through until one realizes the contradiction and rejects the negative in favor of the positive. Other things can be proved constructively by building positive upon positive. But to what extent is proof necessary? It seems impossible for me to get a girlfriend. I am always trying to prove either why I can’t get a girlfriend so I can do the opposite, or why a girl should want to go out with me so I can build constructively. Neither approach ever seems to work. Anything is possible and anything can be proved if one simply believes, but to live such a way is to live as God and I am a mere mortal. Can you manifest a girlfriend for me? ~George, UK

ANSWER: You are doing so much over-analyzing that you are sabotaging all your efforts to create an energy that will attract a woman to you. When you spend time proving why you can’t get a girlfriend, you are sending that information out to the universe; the result is that the cosmos believes that is exactly how you want your life to be – without a companion. It uses your own words and deeds as a template to create your existence.

When you “decide” why someone would want to be with you, you then project an image of a creation that is not really you; it is theoretical. You create what you think they desire, even if it goes against your way of life and who you are.

Why do you have to prove something or the absence of it? You are backing away from reality and saying scientific experimentation will cause your girlfriend to do something just because you have proven it can be done. Haven’t you experienced that no one can cause others to do anything unless they decide for themselves that they want to do it?

To paraphrase your conclusion, anything is possible if you have faith in yourself and believe you can bring it to fruition. Who says that you do not have godlike powers? You are a soul who came into being by having broken off from Source, so you have the same powers and abilities Source possesses. Your essence is magnificent, all-powerful, all-creative, and unconditionally loving. All you have to do is accept who you truly are.
