Q: Masters, I remember these fabulous dreams I used to have when I was a child. I was able to float out of my body and go anywhere that I wanted to go. I didn’t have to be in a deep sleep, I could also do it while day dreaming —what seems now to be like meditation. What allowed me to do this? Was I actually out of my body or just dreaming? Why have I not been able to do this now that I want to experience it again?

A: You were in fact traveling outside of your body. When you were young you didn’t have a belief system that told you it was impossible. You still had some of the memories from when you were at Home. You knew, at your soul level, how to transport yourself wherever you wished to be. You also yearned for the sensation of total freedom and being able to fly.

As you got older (at least in Earth terms), you forgot the marvelous sensations and possibilities. Society’s belief, which says that human bodies are solid masses that cannot divide and separate, took control. You no longer believed that you could fly, so you didn’t.

Now you are opening yourself up to all eventualities, putting aside what was programmed into you, and attempting to rewrite what feels right to you, but you still haven’t returned to that childlike stage. That state of unlimited possibilities exists in faith—the faith that children have that what they feel is what they can do. Return to that unconditional faith in your inner feelings, your soul, and you will be able to fly.

Life lessons

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Dear fellow souls, we wish to discuss with you something we hear from your planet so often: the phrase “Why did I choose to come and experience this horrific life lesson?” This is frequently accompanied by despair and a sense of hopelessness.

Let’s review the basics of human existence. When the soul is at Home in its purest form, it resides in total unconditional love just like the Source from which it broke off. In order to appreciate the magnificence of self, the soul may choose to come down to planet Earth into a duality where every emotion and experience has an exact opposite. Exposure to the opposite of unconditional love can awaken an appreciation of what has been lost.

To provide an example, let’s just say that you live in a land where it is hot and sunny every day. You think this is marvelous but admit that it is a bit boring to have the same monotonous weather day after day. One day you move to the South Pole with its sub-zero temperatures, winds that threaten to remove your coat, and blowing ice that obscures the sun. Then you really know what you have lost! So had you not chosen to go and experience something different on Earth, you would never fully realize the perfection of Home.

Before entering into a human shell and coming to Earth to live out a lesson, you observe all the possible things that are less than perfect. Without trying each one, though, it is just like reading something in a book but never having firsthand experience of it.

For instance, marathons fascinate you; you can read all about them and watch them, yet never take part. Do you know what it is like to run a marathon? No! Until you have done the training, run the miles, felt the exertion and exhaustion, it is merely a concept. Train for, and run a marathon and you gain the wisdom of the experience.

Human life is the only way for your soul to gain the wisdom of the knowledge that has come to you. Experience the occurrence so that you may evaluate it to know whether you want to experience it again. That is a life lesson.

Love, light, and laughter.

The Masters of the Spirit World

Dealing with life

Monday, May 19th, 2008

Q: Masters, whenever I feel the least amount of stress I find myself getting involved in some mindless activity. Sometimes it involves a paper-and-pencil activity like Sudoku or crossword puzzles; other times it is a form of computer game; sometimes I even find myself spending hours in front of a television screen with a video game, blowing up things. It is almost as if I can’t help myself once I get started. Can you tell me why I feel such compulsion? What can I do about it?

A: You relate stress with being out of control. When you sense that you have no control of the things around you, you reach out to take control of something, and anything will do. Since you have success with the things that you dive into, such as these games, you retreat to them to be the Man—in control, in charge, not to be messed with!

Part of the reason you need this affirmation of self-importance is to prove to yourself that you are somebody. From an early age you have been told that you will never amount to anything or become anyone important. When you win at a game you are proving the world wrong.

A secondary benefit you derive from the violent games is a sense of getting even for all the injustices done to you. If you acted this way in public you would end up in jail or worse, but on the screen you can retaliate with murder and mayhem without repercussions. You are running away from life’s responsibilities into a fantasy world where you can write the rules while hiding from your feelings.

You can cease this non-productive use of your time by confronting the reason for your feeling of stress and dealing with it at the moment it strikes. Instead of instantly jumping into a fantasy activity, stop and ask yourself exactly what you’re sensing. If it is anger, guilt, worthlessness, or abandonment, go inside yourself to see why the feeling arose. Then decide whether or not you believe it to be valid. If not, discard the thought and get on with your life. If you feel that it is justified, choose to change so it is no longer part of your reality.
