QUESTION: Masters when my sister was a child, she said she used to have visions which scared her (monsters and so on). I’ve always thought it was only her imagination. Now she is 23 years old and doctors say she has depression. Is there any relationship between her visions and depression? ~Benedito, Brazil

ANSWER: All souls who are having a human experience have the ability to connect with the entire universe, both the physical and the nonphysical. While you enter the Earth with an amnesia concerning who you are and where you have come from, it is initially held in place by society’s belief systems, which are reinforced to you by all those around you.

Everyone told your sister that what she was perceiving was only in her imagination and not possibly real. This was the foundation for her constantly questioning what she was seeing and feeling. What she was doing was being open to the nonphysical aspect of the universe and “seeing” the forms other souls took while having experiences of their own.

Many people who are diagnosed with mental diseases are in fact “seeing” into the other dimensions of existence. They are confused and frightened because they are being told that what they are seeing does not exist, since it is invisible to those treating them.

“Depression” means that the person does not have a solid “impression” of who they are and how they should behave within accepted societal standards, so they separate themselves from a world that is making demands with which they are unable to comply. They don’t know how to describe to others what they perceive, since the others refuse to try to exit their belief system and enter the world of possibility.

The visions your sister experienced are a reality to her but not to others. She exists in an in-between world of the third-dimension physical bodies and a dimension of energetic spirits. You can call it a very spiritual place, but it will never be accepted by those firmly entrenched in the third-dimensional plane.

Each soul creates its own reality by the beliefs they make their own. Even if something exists in the physical world and is right in front of you, you have the ability to refuse its existence and enter into your reality. Talk to your sister about her world in order to understand her a little better.
