One master for another

Masters I was born in to an atheist family. I converted to Islam when I was 15 some 13 years ago. I have always been very strong in my beliefs. This December my father passed away of cancer. The moment he took his last breath and passed I felt I lost my faith and had a very strong urge to go and see a medium something which is forbidden in Islam. She told me I had strong powers and could do what she did but I block it out and that I have many spirits around me? I am confused in what I believe now and am wondering if I’m on the right path? I’m due to see another medium next week for more guidance. ~Jen, England

ANSWER: You have always possessed a need to be told what to do. It is very easy to adopt complete sets of regulations handed over by another and not take any responsibility for the rules by which you pattern your life. Islam provides a very beautiful way to live. It completely covers every action in your life, how you behave, how you talk, how you think, what you wear, but mostly what you believe.

As a teenager you sought these controls since nothing had provided them and you felt you existed in a void. The religion alone does not explain why bad things happen to good people, so with your father’s passing, you felt it failed you. Recently you had heard about mediums and thought they could: one, tell you what to do, and two, contact your father for advice.

All souls have the ability to communicate through the dimensions with the souls in the nonphysical realm. They must accept they have the ability to connect or it will never happen. You have had many incarnations and learned much. In this life, you have not accepted your innate powers and abilities. Relaxation is the starting point.

Depending on other people for guidance is one way to proceed. There is another. Learn to make the contact yourself and seek that advice from friends and guides on the Other Side. Once you establish a connection, know they will never tell you what to do – they will only advise you of the possibilities. The time to be directed is gone. This is the period when you have to step up and make your own decisions. Accept responsibility for those decisions utilizing your freedom of choice and what “feels” right for you. What resonates as you push away the negativity and seek out the positive is your path.
