Completing life lessons

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Hello, fellow souls! We wish to talk today about completing contracts that you entered the Earth plane to fulfill. You may have looked upon these as life patterns or even as aberrations along life’s pathway. 

In fact, these are your life lessons. You made arrangements with some of your friends in soul form to help you experience various challenges. You may have wished to feel what betrayal, abandonment, upheaval, or a sense of loss is like. You didn’t always determine the exact manner in which the lessons would be played out, but just the end result.

Betrayal may be a broken promise to a child, a cheating husband, or false accusations from a close colleague. Abandonment may be your partner or parent’s walking out on you, or the death of a close family member or friend. Being in the midst of a devastating natural event, or being uprooted as a child by your parents to move to another location may be your expression of upheaval. You can experience a sense of loss from the death of a parent, child, or pet, or in the loss of your employment. Each of these examples affords you the desired life lesson.

What do you do once the event is completed? That’s the other side of the equation. These experiences are called “life lessons” because you came to Earth to learn from them. In each of these scenarios if you fight the emotions and feelings that come during the experience, you do not allow yourself to learn. You must embrace the energy of the experience so that you have an imprint of its power—then you will not need any further examples of that lesson. If you do not embrace the sensation, you do not make a record of the feeling, and therefore you must go through the experience again until you allow yourself to feel.

Embrace each day and every experience with love, light, and laughter.

The Masters of the Spirit World

Letting go of pets

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

Masters, my cat is very old and I think that she is in pain. I know that she cannot see or hear much because she scratches me when I disturb her. She means so much to me I can’t let her go. What do you suggest?

Just like a young child, pets don’t understand what is happening to them. You must consider the quality of life that she is living at this time. Pets start out like any child needing you to care for them and make all the decisions for them. Children mature and become independent. Domesticated animals do not.

Animals age at a much faster rate than humans, so as you spend time together the pet becomes the age of your grandparents, while you may still think of it as your child. You are now holding on to her for your own sake. She is in a state of confusion, feeling cut off from the world because of failing sight and sound. In nature she would go off into the woods and await the inevitable in some safe little den.

Honor the time you have spent together and let her move out of her debilitated, restricted body with dignity. She will thank you and honor what you have given up for her comfort.

Mp3 player influence

Friday, January 18th, 2008

Masters, all I hear from my kids is that they must have an iPod or other mp3 player. I am worried about the influence it will have upon them, and what I should tell them. I am concerned that it will interfere with their homework. What should I do?

We understand your concern as a parent for the education and sociability of your child. Remember, an mp3 player does not come pre-loaded with propaganda. This is one of the easiest ways to monitor what your child listens to. Stipulate that you will monitor the playlist on their device periodically.  

While there is the potential problem that children will cut themselves off from their peers and just listen to their headsets, many great benefits can come from their players. It makes most children part of a group in which they can discuss and share their music.  Many children use background music to filter outside interference that prevents concentration, thus improving their study habits and grades.   

Your middle child has agitation problems. Soft, relaxing music will allow him to become centered and quiet. He will have it with him at all times and it is better for him than medication. Your daughter wants to study the effects of a deep meditative state. Help her load meditative pieces on to her unit and the trips on the bus to and from school will allow her new insight.

Mp3 players are tools that can be used for many productive activities and not just recreational noise.  Your children just wish to tune in using modern technology.

Note: The Masters’ remark about medication is in general terms and is not a diagnosis or medical treatment option. If you have concern about the emotional or mental health of yourself or your child, please consult a licensed medical professional.  The Staff
