Dealing with sensitivities and awareness

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

QUESTION: Masters, during my spiritual process I have started to feel energy in different ways. I can feel what other people are thinking; what kind of energy they are sending, what they feel; and their emotional blockages. I don’t know how to handle this kind of information. Most people don’t understand what they think is energy and that someone can read it. Some people are very negative and send negative energy for others. How can I handle this? I can’t carry every problem. How can I be connecting in unconditional love and at the same time I can feel people suffering? Could you please help me in my situation? ~Niina, Finland

ANSWER: You are what is known as a sensitive empathic individual. This is something that you hone during your lifetime depending on the amount of time you put into working within energy. This is a pattern of behavior you have developed over several incarnations, primarily to be able to assist others to understand who and what they are and to work through their life lessons.

Trying to get others to know what energy is, and that theirs can be “read” by another, is outside the comprehension of most people unless they have done spiritual work into the essence of the soul. But they do not have to understand the principles in order to be helped by one capable of using energy.

You exist within a duality, so it stands to reason that you would be surrounded by negativity as well as positive loving energy. With your sensitivity, it is possible to block the negativity from having any impact upon you by using your intention to do so.

No one can help another unless they are willing to be helped, so don’t feel you have to be vested in the outcome of your work. Do your utmost and let the client decide where they want the results to lead.

Part of your spiritual path is to remove yourself from ego judgment so that you may step back and not be affected by the suffering of other people. You are witnessing the lessons they have chosen. Send them love that they might find the direction they need to progress through the work they chose. Stay in your unconditional love and share the feeling with them that they will desire to work toward that end.

Helping someone else with lessons

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

QUESTION: Masters, would you please advise me how best to help my youngest daughter. She has had type one diabetes since age 7 and struggles with anxiety and panic attacks. Apparently type ones are more prone to mental health issues. She has always been a very nervous child and had a very traumatic delivery into this world. I don’t want her to always have to struggle but to be, as far as possible, a “normal” teenager. ~Caroline, Ireland

ANSWER: As hard as it may be to accept, your daughter chose the lessons she is living. Trauma and discomfort highlight her emotions. You saw this from the way she struggled even through her birth. She is sensitive, but she is also very strong when she wants to be.

It is important not to over-react to her difficulties because she senses the anxiety of those around her and believes she has to add their fears on top of her own. There is no such thing as “normal.” You create your own reality, and if you think something should occur in a certain way, anything but that is considered abnormal.

Everyone is different and approaches life in their unique way. Your daughter sees the fear those around her express, and for that reason she feels she should respond in kind. Encouraging her to find things at which she can excel will alter the “broken” title she has attached to herself.

She will find music to be very soothing. Expressing herself in any of the arts will bring her into the mainstream educational system. Through her natural talent she will gather a group around her who have similar interests. She does not have to be a cheerleader or a sportsperson to succeed in life.

Right now, she is her own worst critic because she tries to compare herself to her classmates. Let her understand that she is special and doesn’t have to follow the boring path that everyone else has chosen.

Relationship indecision

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

QUESTION: Masters, I’ve been dating my girlfriend for couple of years now and even though I love her as my best friend, I’ve become to realize that she is not necessarily the one I would like to marry. I have lost the passion and this pattern has happened before. I’m wondering whether I should look inside myself to maybe discover some childhood wounds that need healing, and once healed would help me become certain about my current girlfriend, or if I should just move on and approach the next relationship with more intention and certainty of what I actually want from a relationship & spouse. This is really difficult for me as there’s a lot of internal conflict. I would greatly appreciate your reflections. ~Chris, USA

ANSWER: As each soul goes through their experiences within a human body, they are ever evolving in understanding and awareness while they work through their chosen lessons. One of yours is to experience and learn to deal with various aspects of relationships and romantic love. Not all relationships, even between a male and a female, will develop into romantic love. As you say, this girlfriend is cherished as a best friend and not a potential mate.

She is not sure what the relationship is supposed to be, but believes in romantic fantasies of forever after. It is important that you create a communication that emphasizes your lack of investment in this pairing as a permanent one – that it has come to be viewed by you as a comforting, best-friend matchup.

Your loss of passion in the relationship stems from the fact that neither one of you was completely honest with the other about your desires and intentions when you began dating. Through the intervening period you have discovered that some of the initial impressions were far from what exists. You were each trying to get the union to match the expectations with which you entered into it.

Your experiences are not the result of childhood traumas but rather merely the lessons you chose. You do need to define exactly what you envision as a perfect relationship before you are going to be able to achieve one. You have freedom of choice to re-evaluate your current situation or move on to something else that you can spend more time and truthfulness developing.

The internal conflict you have results from your expectations conflicting with the facts of your situation. You create the reality you live in. Take some time and manipulate it to your standards and desires. Go into anything new with total openness and truthfulness. Don’t anticipate what you think your partner wishes to hear.
