Organized Religions

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, I have read in several posts that you do not espouse any Earth religions. Why is that? Do you believe that humans should worship Creator? Is there a proper way to do so? What do you make of atrocities committed in the name of religion? Is one religion closer than the others to The Truth? ~Alissa, USA

ANSWER: We do not espouse a particular religion because each set of creeds on which the practices are based tell a soul what to do by imposing belief systems upon them. Part of the journey of your soul to Planet Earth is to realize you have total freedom of choice to make all those decisions for yourself. When you choose to follow a dictated form of regulations, or way of life, you give all your power up to that religion to tell you what to do and how to think about things, and you never learn to take responsibility for your actions.

The religions are also based on judgment: “Do what we say and you will be rewarded; disobey and you will be punished.” This concept is understood and works well in the duality of Earth, but does not exist once the soul leaves the physical body and returns Home where there is no negativity to provide the punishment, and all is unconditional love, which may be equated with reward.

To worship is to venerate or pay homage to one whom you believe to be better, higher, or more powerful than you. Some do so because they think it will curry favor and therefore guarantee a reward. All souls are pieces of the Creator or Source and thus have the same qualities. So venerate yourself for the magnificent essence of which you are composed, and all the rest of the universe to which you are connected.

People use all kinds of reasons for the horrible things they inflict on others. If a religion has a brainwashed, fanatical following, the leaders may interpret the tenets of the faith to support whatever they want to see accomplished. Whole ruling classes have done this to the less fortunate throughout your planet’s history. We do not judge. We know everything that happens is part of ongoing life lessons for souls. All the other souls as a group evaluate what they observe and decide if it is something they wish to experience in a future life.

If you feel comfortable only when part of a group, find a “religion” that teaches you who you really are, that honors each individual as a piece of Source and helps you become aware of your powers. Seek out those who say: “How does that make you feel? Does it resonate deep inside of you?”

Body changes, image, and hormones

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, my wife has had a tough time with work for years; her face has never seemed to fit and her co-workers are mean to her. She’s had gastric problems since having our 1st child and has had a lot of sick leave. She is pregnant again and has had more sick leave. She feels like she is being picked on in an effort to make her leave and can’t face going back to work. She feels she is being victimized but doesn’t know whether to just leave or take the matter further. She is very stressed and crying a lot. I’m worried about the effect of this on her and our unborn child. Can you offer any advice on how to handle this situation? ~Phil, Wales

ANSWER: Your wife chose an intertwined series of life lessons. To accomplish all the elements she wished to deal with during her life, she has her physical appearance, physiological changes due to stress upon her body, psychological self-image issues, and the complication of hormonal changes due to pregnancies.

Hormonal changes that arise with the fetus have a large impact on your wife’s emotions, making her extremely sensitive to others. When she picks up on a negative vibe, her fear intensifies it; then her detractors sense her distress and go after it, causing more fear. It becomes a vicious circle. Have your wife learn to defuse fear with thoughts of the love she has for you and the children.

Humans are sensitive to the energy emitted by others. If people feel weak, victimized, or unworthy of respect, their work mates can be like sharks and see them as prey to be harried—or worse, eaten. Have her change her negative feelings   into a positive loving energy, and the workers will start to mimic that.

The gastric distress is the result of internal pressures from stretching during the first pregnancy. Exercise to reposition the intestines and stomach, and energy healing to help the organs and nerve-flow back into position, will relieve this problem. But wait until after the new baby arrives. Total relaxation will also be needed to accomplish this realignment.

Work with your wife on her self-image issues. She is first and foremost a beautiful soul. The body she chose was intended to allow her to learn that the outer shell is nothing more than a covering for the magnificent essence inside. One lesson she programmed was deciding whether to put her energy for living into the outside or the inside.

Are we Polish different?

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

QUESTION: Masters, I lived for 5 years abroad. Originally I am from Poland. When I went living abroad I opened my mind and ears, and realized that we’re not that much liked almost anywhere in the world. It is not only with Polish people, but I think we are laughed at and disrespected almost the most. I was just wondering is it because, as per my observation, we don’t like each other as Polish people? Or is it because we are in general a poor country? And why does it make me feel worse to be Polish abroad? ~Malgorzata, Poland

ANSWER: All of the experiences you have faced are shared by nationalities when they venture into the land of another. No one likes the idea of “foreigners” coming into their backyard and taking their jobs, their opportunities, and their benefits, to which they claim a right. When you travel somewhere, you are not totally familiar with the customs, colloquialisms, and native language. This allows the natives to make fun of your mistakes, misunderstandings, and misadventures. It is done to all travelers, not just the Polish.

The way you have observed and interpreted all of this is filtered through how you feel about yourself. When you are raised with low self-esteem, a common occurrence in poor countries, you have a deeper sense of being less than others and readily submit to their criticism. You can be affected by what you believe others are saying and thinking only if you give them the power to decide those issues concerning your life.

If you have true love for yourself, it doesn’t matter what anyone says about you because you know you are a fantastic soul. No one can ever hurt you with words unless you accept in your heart that the hurtful things they say are true. Each soul creates its own reality—its own belief system outlining its desired characteristics. If you find someone who does not believe what you know about yourself, do not allow that person to gain entrance to your reality or life. Observe what is said and believed, and then, just like something you read that doesn’t make sense to you, delete all reference to it from your memory. Restore your own feelings as the default setting. Take control of your own life.
