Being controlled by negativity

QUESTION: Masters, from a 3rd dimensional earthly perspective, it appears that the balance of positive/negative energy is tipping rapidly towards an excess of negative. There are increasing levels of control over people and restrictions on freedoms of choice. We are bombarded with drugs, foods, toxins and pollutants that cause severe illness, and prevented from choosing more beneficial options. Our children are having their ideas “reframed” by the use of mind altering techniques in schools, the arts and media. What are the most effective ways to protect our children from this; and, from the Master’s perspective, is there any indication that sufficient numbers of people will wake up to what is being done, in time to tip the balance back toward the positive and thwart these attempts on our freedom? ~Melanie, UK

ANSWER: Planet Earth is an equal balance of positive and negative energies. In some parts of the globe there are gatherings of more positive than negative, and the reverse in other areas. How much of the negativity influences you depends on how much you allow to come into your life.

Environmental factors—physical, mental, and emotional—can be monitored and methods devised to avoid them or to counteract their effect on you and on your children. It is a very time-consuming job to monitor everything that comes into your life, but the benefit is dealing only with what you see as positive. It is possible to monitor consumption of food from natural, uncontaminated sources; to make sure that children’s media exposure is not brainwashing them; and to provide materials that enlighten rather than alter thinking. A first step is to restrict the amount of time children watch television and play video games.

People’s way of life is based upon their belief system. If you feel you have no way to avoid these negative things, you will never be able to clear them from your life. If you understand that freedom of choice in this situation involves making the decision to go along with the rest of society or to choose to separate yourself from the “norms” of society, it is much easier.

There are pockets of enlightened souls mostly in positive energy living all over the United Kingdom. When you start to change the way you see your possibilities, you will notice other people functioning in the same fashion. Create your own gathering of positive souls. Shun the negative groups of people who want to suck you in to their negativity to make it stronger. You have freedom; you need to accept it and stop sabotaging your efforts by thinking you don’t have any choices.
