What is a normal life?

Tuesday, January 29th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters it has been many years and I’m still stuck. I wondered why people are able to go through the normal way of life. Find a guy get married and start a family? I can’t imagine nor accept this way of life. While I’d like to lead a different life by throwing the towels going somewhere on my own, I realize I have no courage. If so, I should follow the crowd in the way of life. What good am I? ~Happy, Singapore

ANSWER: What is normal? Since every soul chooses their own path, how can there be a normal? The term is used by judgmental society to rate and grade citizens and encourage them to comply with what society thinks is the way things should be. On the spiritual journey, there is no right or wrong and there is no normal.

A soul may wish to experience a life where they are only concerned with learning who they are and what powers and abilities they possess as a piece of Source. That doesn’t require that they even acknowledge anyone else sharing the planet with them, and they may never need to interact with others.

Families are the way society propagates. People are taught that reproducing themselves is normal because society would cease to exist if no one had children. But if everyone participated in that model, then no soul could learn about homosexuality, transgender love, or abandonment and loneliness. These are all valid life lessons and are outside what society would say is normal.

Following the crowd is saying that they know more about why you came to Earth than you do. How is that possible? Did they plan your soul’s journey for you? I don’t think so. Do what feels like something you can learn from. Explore the possibilities. You can do anything if you have faith that you can.

Stop being so negative. Decide what you would really like to accomplish. Spend some time figuring out the way to do it, and then take one step at a time toward the goal. Everything is a choice, so if you think you can’t do something, you never will be able to do it. Allow yourself to love yourself enough to bring your dreams to fruition.

Why all the negative people?

QUESTION: Masters I want to know why I am finding living in this world very difficult? I can’t come across positive people – every single person in the family and outside the family is rejecting me and most of them are bullying me and I am finding it hard to live. Why is this happening to me even though I have done no wrong to them? ~Humaira, UK

ANSWER: Another person cannot hurt you unless you allow them to do so. What people say to you cannot affect you unless you give credence to their words. You must accept that they know what they are talking about for it to have an impact. To be bullied, you must believe others are better, more knowledgable, or stronger than you. All souls come from the same Source and are made of the same material; some have just chosen to test that fact in differing ways.

Negativity attracts negativity, so examine your own feelings. You thrive in a negative environment because that is what you believe you deserve. You don’t see yourself as loveable and don’t return love to others. That creates a negative atmosphere, which draws more negativity into it. Right now you don’t accept that there are positive, loving people anywhere near you.

Start meditating and placing yourself into a safe space where no one else can enter without your permission. Within that space, invite your guides and ask them to help you protect yourself from any negative energy being directed toward you. Have them help you feel the unconditional loving energy of the universe. Then practice filling and surrounding the area with it and letting the positive love energy draw more positivity to you.

Start envisioning that same unconditional love being directed to the people with whom you come in contact. Supply the intention to them that they too might wish to live in positive love.

Do not engage in any arguments with others, because that is the way people pull your positive self away and replace it with negative hatred. Everyone creates their own reality. What do you want? Start shaping a world of positivity.

Finding peace

Tuesday, January 29th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters I have tried my best to learn everyday good and be good. I have made mistakes. My parents have had their own journey and had a lot of negativity. Talking, discussing, is rare without anger. And asking for anything has not been something they are ok with at all. I had started standing up for myself but that only made things worse. Recently I did not and accepted whatever was said quietly. I attempted this because someone said they would ensure things did not get out of hand if I kept quiet and listened. They did not really take care or could not and I feel terrible and hurt. Not only upset with my parents but very let down by the person who I trusted but who just accepted horrible things being said to me. How do I change / what do I do, to find peace? ~Lr, India

ANSWER: To find peace you have to work on the life lessons that are causing all this: finding self-confidence and self-love, releasing guilt, and having faith in yourself and your decisions. Your parents are fearful that you will recognize that they are lost and not in control of their lives. They need to feel powerful, and they accomplish that by manipulating you and putting you down so they can feel superior.

Your would-be “savior” is also fearful of life and wanted to curry favor with your parents by offering you up as a sacrificial lamb, thinking everyone would learn from the experience. They truly believed in communication as the way to straighten out difficulties but had no idea how really horrible your situation had become.

Now the next step for you is to analyze why the things said to you had such an impact. Do you believe what was said was factual? You know in your heart that it was not, so why did it affect you so strongly? That had to do with your belief that you are causing some of the problems by your prior actions, that you have not been “good.”

This is ridiculous. You are believing that the demands of your parents are what make a good child. Rubbish. A lot of what they want has nothing to do with fulfilling your obligation as a good child. You frequently know exactly what makes sense in any situation, but when your parents say no, you acquiesce to their way of thinking. It’s time to start having confidence in your feelings.

Know what resonates with your soul. Develop more self-love for all the hard work you have put in during this life. Congratulate yourself for choosing such difficult lessons and moving through them. Don’t let anyone tell you what you should think or do. Have faith in the way you think things should be handled, and then carry them out.
