I don’t believe in myself

Monday, June 30th, 2008

Q: Masters, I am having trouble settling into a job. Right now I live in LA and am doing some modeling and acting, which is my passion. In between jobs I support myself by catering, bar tending, and waiting tables. While visiting New York I found a steady stream of catering jobs and the money was very good. My question is: I talked to my Los Angeles agent and he says I haven’t gotten a lot of work lately because my book is disorganized and out of date. He can give me the needed contacts to start getting work, and even has some contacts in New York if I move there. What should I do?

A: First you have to be honest with yourself. You have all these dreams of being a top model and actor but you don’t believe that you are good enough. You have let your sample book die because you would have to see who you really are at this moment—a scared, uncertain little boy.

In the past it was more important for you to have fun. You drank to excess and bounced from party to party, believing that you were going to make contacts and not have to do any leg work yourself. Recently you stepped out of the party scene because it was getting you nowhere. Now you have to decide where you truly want to go.

If you move to New York you will have your financial needs met easily by all the catering work. You believe that you can get in your modeling interviews during the day, but you must remember that you will be starting from scratch. Once you get into the cycle of work/money with catering it will be very difficult for you to step out again. This is not right or wrong, but it will take you a lot longer to make the connections needed for an acting/modeling career. But it will provide a sense of financial security.

Staying in Los Angeles, where you have modeled and acted in commercials on a limited basis, gives you a door to the profession that is already open. Your first step is to establish a marketable view of yourself quickly through your book. Work with your agent, knowing that you are now ready to put the partying aside and will really be serious. You already have contacts to make money in restaurants and bars until you are discovered.

The most important issue is having faith in yourself and your ability to use your good looks to make a living in your chosen profession. The choice is yours, east or west, depending on how fast you want to grow based upon how much confidence you have in yourself and your abilities.

Haunting memories

A: Masters, all my life I have had a fear of men. This has prevented me from establishing any meaningful relationships. Whenever I start to get close to someone, I get this feeling that they are trying to kill me. I don’t trust anyone, particularly men. Lately every time this has happened I have seen the face of my father on the person. What is happening to me?

Q: When you were growing up, the eldest of four children, you were always put in charge. This began when you were six; naturally the responsibility that was given to you was beyond what you could handle. Every accident that happened to your siblings (and they were an uncontrolled, inquisitive lot who got into everything) was blamed on you—and you suffered the consequences. Your parents were so busy with their work that they really were overwhelmed by their youngsters. A number of times out of anger your father beat you for allowing the others to get into trouble and interrupting his work.

With a tremendous temper, and very little education that would allow for a better-paying position, your father struck out at you in frustration. Your desire was to take care of your brothers and sister but you didn’t have the experience to even take care of yourself. Since it was your father who did all the disciplining, the male figure now represents fear and punishment to you. In your immature mind, there were several times when you thought your father was going to kill or was in the process of killing you during his rages. Anytime a man gets close to you, instead of sensing an impending embrace, you sense a stranglehold and actually start physically choking.

The fact that you now see your father’s face in these situations indicates that you are ready to remember and resolve the old fears that have controlled you all these years.

When you are meditating, or in a quiet place, go back to your childhood. Call your father’s Higher Self to come and talk to you. Ask him why he reacted the way he did. Tell him the way you felt about his actions and the long-lasting effect they have had upon you. Recognize your fear for what it is, a memory and only a memory. It can no longer affect you.

Lastly, forgive yourself for not having the strength to confront the issue before now. This was a life lesson in strength and being controlled by another. It is time to move on and mark it “lesson completed.”

Messages from Home

Dear Fellow souls, we are pleased to announce that our human voices, Toni and Peter, have done it again and have put our words together in a new book! Its title is “Talking with Twentieth Century Women”, and it is the second book in our series “Dialogues with Masters of the Spirit World”.

In this book of lovely interviews with 21 famous women, such as Mother Teresa, Ella Fitzgerald, Selena, Marilyn Monroe, Anne Frank, and Amelia Earhart, each discusses why she chose the lessons that she experienced during that particular incarnation, and some of the difficulties she had with those lessons. Some of the women even talk a little about how this life is part of a series of incarnations for their soul.

Each soul incarnates to learn lessons so they might gain the wisdom of the knowledge learned within a duality-based society. In other words, in a place where there are always choices the soul has absolute freedom of choice concerning each incident.

Are you just a little bit curious what it feels like to be murdered? Have Sharon Tate tell you. Find out if Jane Addams thinks praying for peace is a mistake, or if Marie Curie thinks that cell phone radiation is dangerous. Find out the amazing musical experience shared by Marian Anderson, Maria Callas, and Ella Fitzgerald. This is just a small sampling of the wisdom from Home which is now being made available for you.

Love, light, and laughter.

The Masters of the Spirit World
