Guides and freedom of choice

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

QUESTION: Masters, is it true that during our sleep state a soul can meet with their soul’s support team and discuss whether to end their life on earth (if they have done and learned most of what they came here to do)? Was that the case with my daughter? Had she completed her work here on earth? Secondly, are the higher selves of those who love and support the soul here on Earth (as well as guides and angels) also involved in the decision-making in the astral so that they too can give their perspective on the choice to leave or stay? Was my higher self-involved in the discussions regarding my daughter’s decision to end her life? Did my higher self-object to her wanting to end her life in these discussions or did it agree? Is it true that if the soul hasn’t finished its work here on earth, it is sent back? ~Luci, Australia

ANSWER: A soul has the ability to meet with its guides at any time. That is easily done during the body’s sleep cycle because while the physical body needs rest, the soul does not. There are no restrictions, rules and regulations, or set purposes for these meetings other than the soul seeking advice from its friends. Discussing whether or not to return Home can happen at any point, whether or not the soul has completed the desired amount of things it came to Earth to perform.

Each soul has total freedom of choice in the decisions relative to its human existence. It may get opinions from other souls, but the decision is completely up to the individual soul. It rarely consults with the higher self of its current incarnated family since each soul’s journey is a solo affair. In spiritual situations there is no right or wrong and no judgment. The soul alone determines what it seeks to experience. No one besides the soul has any input in the decision-making process.

Your higher self was not consulted about any of the possible choices available to the soul of your daughter during the time she was incarnated on Earth as your daughter. Discussions and planning did take place before incarnation as to what your daughter’s soul sought for this life. It also included deliberations concerning what other souls who would be around during her lifetime wished to experience. You were a part of those.

A soul is the only one who decides if and when it will return to a body – no one else decides or decrees that it will be, as you say, “sent back.”

Sharing unconditional love

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

QUESTION: Masters there is a point of light within your soul(s) that shines out to all. When you amplify this light with conscious prayer what is the effect on humanity’s spiritual growth? ~Samuel, UK

ANSWER: Every soul is a piece of Source consisting of unconditional love. The soul  chooses how much of this love or light it wishes to absorb in the physical and how much it will show or project to others. This energy shines forth from those who have rid themselves of negativity and embraced positive judgment and ego-free lives. For each iota of negative thoughts and actions that remain, the light is dimmed and has to fight to be seen and/or felt.

In society, where negativity is the default setting for souls having a physical experience since that is how all life lessons are presented to them, one must work on a recognition of their true core of light before it can be made apparent to anyone else. Merely acknowledging that you are light and love is worthless until you clear the way for it to emerge.

When you concentrate on becoming this light, with your intention, it can blast through the darkness and materialize to those who accept that it exists and are not totally covered in negative darkness themselves. A soul arising from the third-dimensional muck will feel the light before it is ever visible to them. It will be felt as love being projected into their lives. They have the ability to absorb the positive energy and use it to clear some of their own negativity so that they may recognize the potential in reinforcing their own essence.

Each soul must make its own decisions and choices regarding its spiritual growth. While sending massive amounts of unconditional love into society may assist a small minority of people to accept that their journey is being directed by their decisions, it will have little effect upon the masses. No one can cause others to do anything they do not want to do. Providing love will not force people to give up their ego judgment unless they are ready.

Trying to dictate friendship

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

QUESTION: Masters, I am grateful for answering my question, you gave me a very helpful insight to accept the situation and move forward. You mentioned that I am lonely because I never made the effort to replace my childhood friends with adult friends. I feel that I have been doing this for the last two years. I go places, meet people and invite them to my home in a genuine desire to make friends. Many times, I also buy gifts to please them. I try to keep in touch but they seem never to make the time to have a coffee or chat with me. They are unavailable to me and eventually we lose contact. Why do these relationships not blossom? Is there something wrong with the way I approach them? Sometimes I feel they like me at first, but do not want to go beyond. Is it a life lesson for me? ~Melissa, Brazil

ANSWER: You are treating these people as if they are dolls or puppets you are using to fill in your life in the manner you desire. The gifts you purchase are bribes to get them to love you because you do not think you alone are good enough for them to like. You come on extremely strongly, almost forcing yourself on them, which has the effect of scaring them off – the opposite of what you intend.

You must first examine how you feel about yourself. Why do you think you are not good enough for others to want to spend time with you? Why do you try so hard to get others to like you? If you are being true to yourself, and not just trying to win over a stranger, they will see and accept what you project. If it is to their liking, they will take the initiative to remain in contact with you.

You do not share any common interests with these people and have done nothing to find some. You must find a reason for people to want to be with you, to have something to talk about, and share ideas. This may be books, a craft (knitting, painting, singing), an organization (religious, social, philanthropic) or some subject from a class that interests both of you. People need a reason to spend time with you besides your desire that they do so.
