Exposing the lessons

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters I’ve learned that my negative energy drives my experiences and have been working on shifting it and trying to grasp what it means to be a piece of Source energy by connecting with a wise guide. Feeling stuck recently doing this work, after making positive changes, I discovered GUILT, related to unwittingly hurting innocents (I even have dreams and past life memories of hurting children because of shame/ guilt/ pride.) In this life, I was given too much responsibility for siblings, and feel I abandoned them. My inability to give them what I promised but could not deliver damaged our relationships and maybe even their lives. I’m afraid I’m doing the same to my son, who is often oppositional. Failure and guilt hold me back from expanding my sense of self and pursuing studies and work I want to do, and I can’t see how to learn from them. ~Christina, USA

ANSWER: Positive energy drives things as well. Negative energy is the one that drives society and you are very conscious of things around you, so you have focused on the negative. It is also the way lessons are learned – to choose positive over negative.

You are pinpointing several of your life lessons. They basically deal with your self-concept of responsibility, with guilt being the result of perceived failure in both how you feel about what you perceive you had agreed to do and what you were able to accomplish due to human restrictions.

First remember that all souls are where they incarnated for the experiences that particular environment is able to provide. Each soul is on their own path and is not dependent upon any other – even those sharing the same experiences. So, your siblings chose to be here to experience what they have chosen as lessons. You were placed in the situation of responsibility because you chose to work through the emotions you are now dealing with. No one would have been presented with these factors except through choice.

The guilt you are now feeling arises from a misguided belief that you had a responsibility to them, which is not correct. You created an obligation because of a need to make their life better than yours. That was not why you came; it was to see what you could do with your lot in life. You have done this type of lesson in the past and have never accepted that your life is for yourself and not others.

The way your siblings and son feel about you is a reflection of how you think about yourself. They are all looking at things from their selfish perspective, which is one of their lessons, and seeing it mirrored in you because you blame yourself for their not being able to complete their chosen lessons. Each soul has only itself to bring into awareness. When you accept yourself by understanding why you came, you will be able to move forward.

Creating reality

QUESTION: Masters – Please help – I am just so sad all the time. Instead of improving my attitudes and abilities, I feel I am regressing. I am worried about my son who, like me, seems unmotivated and generally unhealthy. I am fearful of so many things. I’ve had a terrible chronic condition for almost half my life and now I feel like I’ve been ‘beaten up by life’. I want so much to get better and to care about myself again. I want to not be so scared. Most of all, I want to feel alive and pain free. Your advice would be sincerely appreciated. ~Darlene, Canada

ANSWER: The choice of mood you reside in is completely up to you. Living in negativity will never allow you the opportunity to see happiness. Fear is an indication of life lessons that you chose to experience but have not yet dealt with. You have started to fear that the fear is growing, and it is, because you are feeding it with negative intentions and acceptance.

Only you can care about yourself, but not while you label yourself as defective, unhealthy, and unmotivated. Who else is around to motivate you? No one unless you turn all your power over to someone and then do exactly as they say. But that leaves you a thoughtless slave who can’t learn anything.

To change your life, you must accept and believe that you can change your life. You won’t be able to do it all at once because you have too many belief systems telling you negative things about yourself. You have to look at each one, decide what you want and can do about it, and then do it. Thinking, dreaming, analyzing won’t do any good unless you take the initiative to move forward.

Start with your biggest fears. Take a look at what they really represent. Ask yourself how you think about those fears and why you think what you do. You will find the answers all have to do with a rut you sank into and don’t have the energy to climb out. Well, just put one foot in front of the other and move ahead. You must begin moving your body so that your systems will come back on line.

Your son is mimicking what he is seeing you do. Following your example, he will sink deeper than you can even imagine unless he sees you reversing your life. Work for both you and him.

QUESTION: Masters I am thinking about a man I worked with all of the time- I’m having conversations with him in my head; I have a huge crush on him although realistically I don’t know him even as a friend. I’ve had these obsessive crushes before. I’m married and I don’t act on the crushes; they feel very one sided but take up so much of my energy and thoughts. I would love some insight into freeing myself. ~Carly, Australia

ANSWER: You are a romantic and bored out of your mind. Your family life is not providing enough diversity and excitement, so you create your own fantasy world. If it were not this man, it would be some other. Part of this stems from your feeling that you would like to have more of a say in relationships, but you do not speak up with your husband. He is unaware of your desperate unhappiness.

There is nothing wrong with what you are doing, exactly, except that you are wasting time that you could be using for some other endeavor. These fantasies are giving you a vacation from what you see as your humdrum life. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your dreams could be played out? Have you considered getting involved in the local theater group where you could reinvent yourself with each new role? How about a community center full of various activities?

You also need to examine your marriage and whether it is the right place for you to be right now. Often, after a while, people who were perfect for each other when they married are no longer compatible and just hold a place for each other. When was the last time to two of you sat down and shared dreams and desires for your future?

Evaluation time is here if you want to reestablish control over your life. The choices are yours. You can continue to dream or you can take action.
