QUESTION: Masters thank you for your advice and information about the dark entity I have been dealing with. I now seem to have more control over the situation. You have said that souls have free will and after death, some, like those I grapple with, choose the dark and remain attached to earth disturbing human beings like me. Does this mean that there are an ever-accumulating number of dark souls/entities? If souls have been incarnating on earth for a billion years and every year some choose not to go to the light, we could have an ever-increasing number of them. Are these dark entities/souls ever required to leave? Or can they, and do they, stay attached to earth forever if they will it so? How many do we have here at this time? ~Christina, USA
ANSWER: Souls always have free will before, during, and after experiences on Earth and elsewhere. Since all have an essence of unconditional love, regardless of whether their current conscious mind is seeking negative or positive energy, there is perpetually a residual sense that unconditional love is where they belong.
Souls never lose the assistance of their guides, even when they choose to stay in negativity. The guides are there to “hint” at what they are missing. When they tire of their negative ways, they start drifting toward what has consistently resonated within them: the essence of their soul.
Souls who stay in a discarnate, negative state after the body ceases to function remain for totally human reasons such as revenge, a sense they can now get what they have always desired, etc. What they come to learn is that they do not have the same interactive abilities without a body that they had with one. For instance, they cannot punch out the bully they have always feared and despised.
When they realize the frustration of not being able to accomplish what they stayed for, they frequently seek other means of feeling good. This is when the guides come in and show them glimpses of what it is like back Home so that they long to be a part of the whole again. They still are not required to leave, but most do.
There is a continuously fluctuating level of discarnates. The positive/negative balance on the planet is fifty-fifty, so the more who stick around using negativity, the less negativity is available for incarnate souls to learn their life lessons. Right now, the number of souls working on lessons far exceeds the minimal number of souls who are over-staying their plans.
