Signs of lessons

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

QUESTION: Masters please will you elaborate on, “Every fear and doubt that arises in one’s life is a neon sign that a lesson lies underneath. Go looking for these signposts; start questioning how you feel about each and what it is that makes you feel that way. When you reach back into the onset of these feelings, you will see causes that you can ‘work’ to understand and then release from ever affecting you again.” Further clarification, please, ~Pauli, United Kingdom

ANSWER: Souls come into a physical body on planet Earth, which is the only place that negativity resides, in order to exercise their freedom of choice as a means of understanding what life lessons are all about. Everyone enters the duality to learn if they can recognize their essential abilities and strengths.

This is done by facing the things they have chosen – such as hatred, betrayal, guilt, self-deprecation, etc. – and then making the decision that they don’t need these things in their life, so they choose to release that energy and move into love. Once the lesson is acknowledged and understood, it disappears from that existence.

At first the soul is totally in the dark as to the fact that they have choices concerning their life. They think they are stuck with “their lot in life” and can’t do anything about it. These tasks they put in front of themselves, from which they seek to learn, come into their awareness because they create a sense of fear or doubt by their presence.

To speed up the process of understanding why you came to Earth, follow the origin of your fears and doubts to take you to the reason a certain lesson has appeared in your life. Concentrate on the fear and ask your inner self why it is there. Your unconscious will bring into your conscious mind the reason for that fear.

Generally it will have to do with experiences you have had in that lifetime where you didn’t understand why things were happening and assigned blame to yourself for the unhappy circumstances. Sometimes it is allowing someone else to convince you that you were not worthy of making your own decisions.

Accepting that all souls are the same – none being any better or more informed than any other – and that you must take responsibility for your own decisions if you are to become enlightened, you “learn the lesson” and can move on without its affecting you anymore. You have thereby released the negative hold that action had upon you.

Why am I afraid?

QUESTION: Masters, all my life I have secretly been afraid….Hard to explain but I feel you will understand with your insight …Is this something I brought with me or was it caused by an incident when I was 13 Is it something I was to overcome in this incarnation… ~Charles, Canada

ANSWER: Take a look at the previous answer to get an idea of how a soul sets itself up to learn lessons. Fear, being afraid, is one of those signposts that you are staring at a chosen life lesson. This gives you the opportunity to address the underlying task, learn why you chose it, and release the fear it projects.

You lined up a series of challenges you wanted to experience while here. Some of them you programmed by the environment and characteristics you chose – such as your sex, location, family, family traits, and people who would have an influence on your life (teachers, preachers, and society in general).

In addition, you also made contracts with other souls to interact with you to create an atmosphere that would present individual situations for you to analyze and try to understand, and from which to learn. The incident when you were 13 was one such agreement.

Everything that happens to a soul having a human experience is for the purpose of learning who you are as a soul and what powers and abilities being a piece of Source allows you to manifest. Once you accept that this is so, you will be able to use this knowledge to understand that everything in your life occurs merely for the purpose of education.

Life lessons always come to the person in a negative setting, which generates fear, so that the soul has to work to understand how to overcome the negative and turn the situation into a positive. That is the definition of learning a life lesson. The result of understanding the lesson is a release of the fear surrounding the event, personal characteristic, or emotional disturbance.

Dealing with ego judgment

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

QUESTION: Masters, there is something I have struggled with throughout my relationship with my partner and I do not know what to believe. He stirs up my insecurities and fears. I would like to know whether there is any truth to those fears, or is it a false perception? I appreciate any clarity or assistance for this situation, and what I or we can do to finally heal? ~Holly, USA

ANSWER: You must understand that all your thoughts are the result of lessons you wanted to work on in this lifetime. First off, you wished to experience being controlled by another through the actions of psychological and emotional abuse. You wished to see how long it would take you to honor yourself by stepping up to the plate and acknowledging (a) what you were allowing to happen and (b) that you are an equal with your partner and have a say in your own life.

Lessons of yours include dealing with lack of self-confidence, lack of self-worth, and feelings of guilt for whatever happens to you because you accept blame for everything, even what you did not initiate. From the beginning of this relationship, you deferred to him on everything because you wanted him to love you and thought that he was so much stronger and could direct and protect you.

Your fear is real because these lessons are all glaring at you through the guise of your mate. When you think that he is correct in the statements he makes, even when not in agreement with his assessment, you give him power over you to make you feel as you do. Giving him that power creates an insecurity in your mind about what is right for you.

He is not doing this to be malicious. He thinks that, because you do not confront his actions, you are in agreement with his evaluations.  Nothing is right or wrong on a spiritual journey. All journeys are for the purpose of learning, so you can let things stay as they are or evaluate each interaction between you and see if it feels good to you. If it does not resonate within you, then ask yourself what is wrong and how you can change the energy.

You have freedom of choice and the decisions are up to you. Step back and look at your situation dispassionately; without the emotions, things will be much clearer. Then make a plan for removing the insecurities, emotions, and fears from your life.
