FAQs

ADVICE AND ADVISORS

Will someone please tell me what to do? You are in charge of your life and you are facing a life lesson your soul set up for you to solve. Your higher mind feeds you a stream of good ideas. Be alert, and when you feel one is right for you, do it, however small it is. That will put you on the right path.

How can I change my husband/wife? You are both in charge of your own life. There is no reason why you should not try to influence the way your spouse lives but he/she has the freedom to choose not to listen to you. In the end you need to recognize that if you do not like what is happening, you have the option to leave.

How can I get a good job/money? You need to build up your self-esteem by following the good ideas your higher mind gives you, by freeing yourself from past problems, and by living in the present. The more you love yourself, the better are your chances to work. Remember not to sabotage what you are creating by entertaining negative thoughts about the possibilities.

How can I help my children? Parents have the job of helping their children to understand the world they live in, and to develop a strong sense of self. Parents are not in charge of their children’s lives—children are, and they may choose not to accept help offered them on occasion.

Who are in our council of advisors? A group of spirit guides who help souls decide what lessons they wish to experience, and who help them make the best use of the lessons they have learned. They are selected in mutual agreement with your soul.

Who and what are the Ascended Masters? They are souls who, having incarnated and completed all their lessons, have come into full enlightenment of their true nature. They no longer need to return to Earth for additional learning. They may choose to teach and mentor other souls in human form. (“Master” is a word meaning teacher.)

SPIRIT GUIDES

Do I have spirit guides and how do I contact them? All humans have guides. They are nonphysical souls who make themselves available to help incarnate souls use their freedom of choice. In general, contact with your guides is made during meditation when consciousness has been allowed to ebb.

What do spirit guides do? They answer your questions and give you an idea of the current energies that may affect your plans for the future. They do not predict your future and will never tell you what to do.

How should I meditate? There are many ways, e.g., concentrating on your breathing, on the rhythm of your quiet walking, or on the flame of a candle. All these methods will allow you to turn off your conscious mind so your higher mind will be more available to you.

How can I develop psychic abilities? You must start with a clear goal: to be a healer, to practice Reiki, to make contact with the departed, and so on. All people have some psychic ability if they allow it. You must open yourself up consciously to opportunities that will help you reach your goal. Then practice, practice, practice until it becomes second nature to you.

How can I understand and deal with sleep paralysis? This situation may arise when consciousness is coming back into a sleeping body after it has traveled during the rest cycle. Just relax and let feeling return, and have a conscious awareness of your human body.

Are dreams real? Dreams may be any one of a number of things, e.g., a continuation of the experiences you were having in an out-of-body trip during rest, or a re-enactment of something you have read about or seen.

What do the numbers 1111 mean? Your guides frequently deliver messages to you through digital clocks, billboards, advertisements, etc. Concentric or identical numbers generally mean yes or an affirmative response, while chaotic number sequences are negative. 1111 is further an indication of something new occurring in your life. It is the twin pillars (11-11) of a doorway or an opening into a different experience.

THE JOURNEY OF THE SOUL

Are heaven and hell real places? They are states of mind, experienced on Earth and in the fourth dimension, that need duality to exist in the form of positive and negative energy. They do not exist in the fifth dimension (Home).

What is judgment? A state of mind existing only in Earth’s physical third dimension. Because of the duality and polarity of the planet, everything has an opposite. Human beings grade all other people by an impression of where they feel the others exist on a personal, ethical, or religious scale of “good” and “bad.”

What is a life review? The experience undertaken by a soul when it returns Home after an incarnation, where its council and guides help it to discover the wisdom within the knowledge it gained during that particular incarnation.

What is karma? Am I hindered by karma? Karma relates to the effects of an action taken by human beings. Many people use it to explain away what they consider bad experiences that happen to them. This is inaccurate in its application to human experience. The accurate view is solely the energetic effect of the action taken.

What are discarnates, ghosts, and poltergeists? (1) Discarnate: A soul who clings to the physical because it wants to continue with its past life. This soul/body image remains connected to Earth and contacts or haunts those who remain, until it chooses to return Home. (2) Ghost: A soul who is a discarnate, or even one who has returned Home but wishes to be seen by humans, and can make itself visible. (3) Poltergeist: A soul who uses energy to make physical things move.

What are the akashic records?  An energetic library containing a record of all the knowledge and wisdom that has been gained through the experiences that souls have had on planet Earth. Each soul has its own record of what has transpired throughout each of its incarnations, and all these records are in the library.

Are there really angels and archangels? “Angel” is a human term for a celestial being who, after being separated from Source, acts as a guide to those on Earth, but may or may not at some later time choose to experience a physical shell. “Archangel” is a human term for a celestial being who is very advanced and experienced as a guide and whose soul has never incarnated.

What is enlightenment, or spiritual ascension? Enlightenment occurs when an incarnate soul comes to full awareness of its immortality and recalls all the implications of its essence: who it is and what it can do. Ascension is the process by which the soul becomes totally aware of its essence and can access all the wisdom that exists everywhere. (This is not a movement of a physical body into a higher dimension; that never takes place. It is only the soul who ascends.)

What is wisdom? Awareness of the facts and principles of spiritual life gained during an incarnation, with understanding of how to apply them when living again on Earth.

BELIEF AND ACTION

What is incarnation? It is process by which souls who have gone to planet Earth take on a physical body. The soul is energetically present at conception. It takes its place within the body of the fetus usually just before delivery, rarely just after conception, and never after birth.

What are belief systems? Thoughts and actions, initially received and copied from parents, religion, and society, that structure a person’s behavior. After gaining awareness of itself, a soul may rewrite or adapt these received beliefs to comply with its own understanding of reality.

What is meant by ego? A function of the physical conscious mind that employs judgment and measures how people perceive themselves. It enables the soul to operate in society in order to learn lessons and gain wisdom. It is the compilation of human belief systems deemed necessary for a person to exist in a physical body.

Is freedom of choice a law? It is a universal law that says all souls have the ultimate right to decide exactly what they are going to do while incarnate. It extends to all aspects of living, from the choice of biological parents, to the lessons they will learn, and the manner and time of their physical death. How restrictive is free will? Where a soul has made a decision to do something, it may feel restricted by that decision but still is always free to make another decision.

What is my destiny and my purpose in life?  As a fragment of the eternal Source, your soul is free to choose its path; there is no specific destiny given to you by the Creator. We come down to planet Earth with the purpose of experiencing negative energy, as we have planned beforehand, in order to find ourselves and know more fully the loving nature of our beautiful soul.

What is transition? The soul’s move from life in the body to life at Home. Physical death.

What is reincarnation? The process the soul uses to experience more lessons to obtain wisdom. After completing one incarnation, the soul returns Home to assess its experiences and to determine what else it wishes to learn. It then reincarnates by entering into a new physical body in order to have further experiences.

Can I talk to my deceased relatives? Once a soul has transitioned back Home it will hear anything you say to it. Whether or not you can hear the soul has to do with practice and your belief in your ability.

THE UNIVERSE

What is Source? The point of origin of all that is known by human beings, and of all that exists. It is the energy of unconditional love, the highest vibrational energy anywhere, and is found in everything. No human or animal body can live without some connection to Source. Source makes no judgments and does not reward or punish souls.

What are souls? Individualized pieces of energy split off by and from Source, in order to have unique experiences outside the perfect. They are all particles of Source, so each and every soul is also Source. All souls are equal regardless of the human shell they have chosen to inhabit.

Where and what is Home? Not a physical place but an energetic dimension of unconditional love and of conscious connection with Source. It is where each soul works with its guides and council. Every soul who is not incarnate, on Earth or elsewhere, is consciously within the dimension of Home.

What is meant by dimension? A waveband or stratum of vibrational energy. Planet Earth is at the third dimension, which is physical in nature. Home, which is completely nonphysical, is at the fifth and higher dimensions. The fourth dimension is an interface between Earth and Home and is a mix of physical and nonphysical energies.

What is our Essence? The reality of who you are: an eternal part of the “God-Force,” a phrase sometimes used as meaning “all souls” and described as unconditional love.

What is the difference between God and Source? God is believed to be separate from humans and, as judge, decides whether we have lived good or bad lives and if we should be rewarded or punished for them. Source energy of unconditional love is shared by souls in the reality of the nonphysical world. There is no judgment made by Source on the illusion of human lives lived by souls in the physical world.

Do animals have souls? A very small percentage of animals have souls. Only 1% to 2% of all souls chooses to have an experience as an animal; most choose only lives as people. Animals without souls have a spark of divine energy that animates them—the same energy that enlivens other living thing, such as plants.

LIFE LESSONS

What are life lessons? The various pre-planned experiences, generally negative in nature, that a soul has while incarnate that allow it to gain wisdom.

How can I tell what my lessons are? You will recognize them because of your negative reaction: fear, doubt, or anger at what is happening to you. You will feel challenged, but sometimes you may be unsure of the nature of that challenge.

Why do bad things happen to me all the time? Because your soul freely chose, before you incarnated, to be made to tackle difficult, dangerous, depressing, or other experiences of a negative kind. This is to help you to learn all about your wonderful nature, so in fact the “bad” things are not as bad as they seem.

Why am I depressed and unable to be happy? This is a good example of a life lesson. Your job is to find how your soul is seeking to overcome the depression in a loving, positive way. The reason for the depression, if it is not chemical, is also a life lesson.

I have a fear; where does it come from? Fear is the ultimate in negative feelings: it is the opposite of the love that is the essence of your soul. It comes from the negativity that is balanced equally with positive energy on planet Earth. Fear and doubts are alarm notices for a life lesson that needs to be discovered and worked on.

How can I help myself? Help comes in a steady stream of positive feelings you pick up intuitively. Following the most positive sets you on the right path. Avoid negative thinking, making judgments, and following your ego’s message about what society says is right or wrong. Look for the love within so you may love yourself for the journey you are on.

Have I completed my lessons? Possibly. Your soul chose a set of lessons. When you sense that they are completed, you may choose to complete variations of the original, just rest and enjoy, or enter into a period of service in which you help others having the same experiences you have just completed.

 SOUL MATES

What are soul mates? Other souls who came into being at the same moment as or immediately before or after you did. This group of souls usually numbers 144. Generally these are the souls with whom you choose to make your most important contracts prior to incarnation.

When will my twin flame appear? Your twin is the very last soul from whom you were separated when your individualization from Source occurred. Twins have a close, loving relationship that is not profitable to revive while incarnate because it’s so distracting. As a result it is very rare indeed for twins ever to meet on Earth. Popular belief that your twin flame is your ideal mate is incorrect.

What are soul contracts? Voluntary agreements that souls make with other souls while at Home to ensure that they will have the proper Earth situation to help them experience the physical lessons they desire.

What is an incarnate? A soul who has gone to planet Earth and is now in a physical body.

What is our higher self? That portion of the incarnate soul that may be accessed to gain information that is usually in the person’s unconsciousness.

What is our shell? The living physical structure inhabited by a soul.
