Life choices

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, my husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost 4 years. My husband has been diagnosed with severe male infertility and our only hope is very expensive fertility treatment, according to the doctors. I also really battle to lose weight which is stopping us from having the treatment. Did we choose not to have children in this life? Can my husband be healed? In a past-life regression, I recalled my child being stolen from me; could this be causing a block? Why is it so difficult for me to lose weight which stops me from living my best life? ~Debbie, South Africa

ANSWER: Your situation is all about the life lessons the two of you chose for your time together. Your husband wanted to experience the trials of feeling “less than a man” because of his fertility problems. In the world, masculinity is often determined by procreation abilities. This affects what you think about yourself and what others think about you as well. It is society’s judgment and has nothing to do with a man’s productivity or self-worth, and definitely nothing to do with the magnificence of his soul. The situation does force people to determine how they evaluate their existence—or, if they are spiritual, how they can find the unconditional love inside that makes them feel complete.

Your lessons center on your self-image notions. Is my weight preventing me from being something that I choose to be? Why am I not able to lose? Is it a lack of discipline? Or do I not love myself enough to be able to produce results? You have hidden behind your weight in the past to run away from unpleasant situations, and now that you don’t need it, you are not sure how to proceed. One way would be with hypnotherapy or self-hypnosis.

Your past-life regression showed you a life in which a child was stolen from you. This brings up the feelings of being taken advantage of, betrayed, and cheated out of something rightfully yours. That energy did carry into this life—but not the energy of having no children.

It is possible for each of you to resolve the issues, which could then permit conception. Examine all your motives and experiences surrounding this and see if the expense and heartache for something that may not be accomplished is worthwhile. You would both make terrific parents. There are a lot of children out there who need good homes. What would you think of putting all that “possible” energy into a sure thing and starting to be parents sooner rather than later or never?

What if everyone knew?

QUESTION: Masters, if there were finally a global acceptance and understanding of the truth of the spirit world, life lessons, reincarnation and energy that your teachings and so many wise spiritual people are gradually bringing about in this time of spiritual revolution, and if unconditional love was taught to children by parents and in a values-based school curriculum and we all finally had open access to all the answers as to ‘Why’ and had balance of right-brained spiritual living as much as left-brained rational power, how could any person grow up with the illusion of fear, isolation and unlove which is conducive to developing the negative characteristics or destructive behaviours or feelings of hate or jealousy, etc, required if they came to learn from negative experiences? In a world of harmony, if negativity is essential, how is ‘heaven-on-earth’ favourable to us souls? Is the human race unable to grow through joy and love? ~Max, UK

ANSWER: Wow, did you even take a breath between the beginning and end of this intensely driven question? We feel your desire and drive to rid the world of the problems that society fights constantly. But those altercations between good and evil are what allow you to see love and joy. In the first part of your question you are describing what it is like at Home: All is perfect, all is unconditional love, and you know all the answers.

So, you ask, what is wrong with that? The answer: You can’t learn anything because you know it all. So you might just as well stay Home without a human body that allows you to have emotions and those wonderful physical sensations. Earth was created with all its problems and negativity so that humanity could have the opportunity to try to understand about judgment, based on your left-brained rational power, and to make your own choices. If the soul knows everything, granted it will have no fear, or any other negativity, but it also will have nothing to choose between—therefore no reason to come down to Earth’s duality.

Your concluding sentences speak of harmony and negativity, which reminds us of someone trying to keep a fire burning in the middle of a downpour with no shelter available. They are mutually exclusive. Heaven on Earth, joy and love, and even negativity—all are ways to learn the different lessons you may have chosen for your lifetime.

Most spiritual teachers are way-show-ers. They provide pieces to assist you with the jigsaw puzzle you call life. They may give you pieces you don’t need because you are not working on that lesson, or they may only provide the border, allowing you to figure out the rest.

Constant stimulation

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, I would like to know why I have so much muscular pain in my body (arms, legs and shoulders). I cannot seem to relax or find a comfortable position in bed. I have trouble sleeping. It seems that my body has too much electricity or energy. Why is that? My legs are the worst, always muscle tension and constant pain. I’ve tried many types of healings but nothing seems to work. Could you please help advise me what I must do to feel better in my body? I cannot continue with this pain. ~Johan, Netherlands

ANSWER: A human body is, first and foremost, an interconnected series of electrical impulses. One reason for choosing the type of bodies that humans have is the presence of these sensors. Feelings of pain and discomfort enable the soul to experience many of the Earth lessons they came to learn. These nerves also respond to any stimulation that hits them. This may be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.

Your emotional state currently is in upheaval. You are in denial of matters affecting you. Rather than admit you are not in control, you shy away from difficulties; not wanting to face adversity, you give in and let others make decisions for you. You then secretly detest what you think you are being forced to allow. You are unable to see all of this.

You need to take the time to get as quiet as you can and reach out for the fears that are in control. Take each and ask why it is there. Once you have admitted to a fear, you are able to deal with it by resolving your feelings concerning it, and move on without having it cling.

The electricity or energy that causes your spasms is being generated by these hidden fears within your life. The pain is from the constant stimulation to the nerve endings. End the cause—end the pain and involuntary movement. The pain and movement is the unconscious’ way to get your attention to deal with these issues.
