Looking back

February 14th, 2017

QUESTION: Masters having been in my emotionally abusive marriage for 12 years, your previous guidance suggested that my husband was confused with his own life and that I should run not walk away if he could not commit and honor me. Being afraid to leave through low esteem and children I continued to put up with an unhealthy relationship, wanting to leave but always having an excuse. He chose to leave before Christmas and I hit rock bottom. Have I failed in a lesson to gain courage and strength and to love myself enough to leave him when I knew I should have? ~Debbie, United Kingdom

ANSWER: This is an example of what we have said many times: the universe brings to you what you need to experience. Out of fear you did not take yourself out of an untenable situation, which would have helped you grow faster, so the action was taken out of your hands by your husband leaving you. The rock bottom you hit is called the dark night of the soul, where everything you believed in is yanked away and you have to start all over again.

You may see this as a failure, but it is really just an alternative way of accomplishing what needed to be done. When you chose to deal with your lessons of self-worth and self-confidence, instead of self-love, they kept you firmly planted in the marriage. Your higher self and the universe saw you needed a push to get moving and accept the reality of your husband’s betrayal, so they “encouraged” him to move on.

Once you are at the bottom you have nowhere to go but up. You can create the type of world you desire. And don’t think it has to be alone because it does not have to be. What you do need to decide is whether you need additional time dealing with the type of abuse your husband gave you, or whether you understand you do not have anything else to learn from it and that it is time to move on.

There are no right or wrong answers to the way a soul learns their lessons. It can be by their action or through the circumstances that throw them into a chaos they have to survive. Don’t let your mind, prompted by society’s view, convince you that you immediately have to jump back into a relationship. From now on, do only what “feels” right to you.

Human twins

QUESTION: Masters, I’d like to know more about twins in general, and my relationship with my twin now. I have a slight clue about why I have chosen to be a twin in this life, but I’d like some confirmation about that. Are we one soul in two bodies and thus ultimate mirrors to each other? ~Anna, Finland

Answer: When souls decide to come to Earth, they think of all the circumstances from which they desire to learn. They choose their sex, their race, their parents, the environment, and occasionally a twin soul to give them immediate additional input. A contract is entered into between two separate souls that they will share the same womb, at the same time, and use being a part of a multiple birth to enhance their lives.

Twins may have identical intentions for the life, or they may have agreed to be the instigator for contrasting experiences. That way they live one side of an event but also are able to observe the opposite, which their twin is playing out – thus obtaining twice the learning from one situation. One twin may be dominant or they may share decision making.

Twinship is the ultimate experience in sharing, never being alone even when you desire it, always having support and/or criticism at hand, and a platform for the quest for individuality to identify who you truly are as a single person. While you understand each other so well from constant contact, you do get the opportunity to see both sides of an issue.

You and your twin have both been incarnate on many occasions, but this is the first time as a twin. You wished to experience dealing with self-confidence, self-love, and self-worth while living in an aquarium with a matching, but contrasting, picture of yourself. Always being considered as a pair, and not a single, weighs in on how each of these characteristics appear to you.

While being a part of something, you are on your spiritual journey alone. You have freedom of choice whether to consider things as they relate only to you or as they affect the two of you. Twinship is always an interesting choice for a human life.

Balancing body and soul

February 14th, 2017

QUESTION: Masters. I would like to know how to awaken my soul, my cosmic consciousness, because I feel a great wall between my present life, with all the responsibilities, commitments and my true spiritual reality, my true freedom. Sometimes I get confused, divided and feel that there is no definitive way that can completely change my life since from my point of view about everything, even my senses and perceptions about the spiritual world. My relationships with people are usually good, although with my girlfriend is hard, by her way to be, no talking, always hiding your feelings, fighting when she wants to do it. With everything that I exposed, what would be the right to do? What way to follow, concealing that realities? ~Costasant, Brazil

ANSWER: You are a spiritual soul, a nonjudgmental, unconditionally loving essence, who chose to come into the third-dimensional duality where everything is rated, graded, and judged, completely controlled by an ego mind. To unite with your spiritual self, you have to give up the ego and embrace the love. Forego judgment, flee the negative energies, and become a witness for the lessons of others.

Your girlfriend is an example of someone totally involved in existing within her ego. She is constantly fighting all the negative energies around her. She fashions her behavior on the society around her that embraces judgmental negativity. Her vibration (enlightenment) has not even begun, and in her presence, you feel a pulling down into the turmoil of the negative physical world.

It may be difficult to shed all semblances of ego when you are in the human world, but it is a choice that can be made. Since unity with your spiritual self will never be attained in the presence of negativity, upon which the ego thrives, it is imperative to take all negative energies around you, identify them, and seek the positive, loving alternative.

The wall you feel is the negative energy that bars you from positivity. Freeing yourself from third-dimensional negativity allows you to float into the positive cosmic consciousness, joining in the unconditional love. That is the pathway you seek. The choice is yours. It requires work because you first have to recognize the beliefs you have been living by that embrace negative ideals, and then turn toward only positive thoughts and actions.
