Why no contact from beyond?

QUESTION: Masters, my mother was an accomplished astrologer, psychic, all around very spiritual person. She taught classes on Astrology, Dream Research, Reincarnation study, did Hypnosis for Past Life Regression and studied Eckankar. I have heard St Michael call to me as a child. She spoke to him regularly. We were raised Catholic. She believed she was living dual physical lives. She passed away suddenly 19 years ago at age 47. She has never manifested herself or contacted myself or either of my two siblings. This makes me question all my faith and beliefs. If anyone would try to reach me, she would. I barely even dream of her. ~Kelly, USA

ANSWER: Each soul is on its own journey. When one is on Earth and gets so involved in dozens of belief systems, and then tries to integrate them into a single lifestyle, she may feel she is living dual—or even triple or quadruple—lives. It is even more confusing when the chosen lifestyle is so different from the religious belief system that the individual practices.

Not all souls choose to maintain contact with those left behind unless it is part of a contract entered into before all the parties came into being. Part of your lessons include going through the various doubts you find yourself enmeshed in at this time. You must first ask: Why do you feel you need her to manifest? Is this the only thing that will make you accept your belief systems? How do you feel about your beliefs? Take each one and examine it. Keep it only if it resonates with who you are at this time.

The only way that your mother’s soul could come through to you is if you stopped trying so hard for her to be there. It is easiest for her to come to you when you are  in a meditative state and your mind is completely clear. It is extremely difficult for a soul to manifest a physical countenance; it therefore rarely happens.

It is not unusual for you to stop dreaming of a person who has been gone for 19 years. Relax into a life of working on your own spirituality, which will allow you to rid yourself of heavy, negative, Earthy energy. Work on loving yourself and bringing universal, unconditional energy as the default condition of your life. You will be reaching toward your mother and contact will be easier.
