Moving Out of Fear

I have had two fears. One was swimming, which I managed to conquer partly by going into water, moving away from the sides of the pool, putting my head under water, and taking my feet off the bottom. I did not swim, but I got to it as near as possible that I could. My other fear is driving in the USA. Don’t get me wrong, I am a good driver in Australia, but in the USA everything is the other way around. So, of course, it has not been an easy change to make after driving on the left side of the road for so long, to start driving on the right.

Alan, after 20 hours of flying, can get off a plane in Australia and then drive a car there as if he has always driven on the left side of the road! I have used a variety of excuses to explain why I do not drive in the USA. One is, of course, spiritual development and being “away with the fairies” most of the time. Another was the obvious, as driving here is so different to that in Australia. In addition, I found the book of driving regulations here hard to learn. So, what has been happening is that Alan drives me where I need to go, and my friend, Jean does the same for me, too.

However, Maitreya told me I still had a fear of driving, and if I did not conquer it, I would come back for another round of existence. I was not pleased with that statement one bit! The more I thought about it, the more I could see my fear, and as another one of my friends told me: “You cannot talk about fear, and teach about letting go of fear, if you do not let go of your own!” My reaction was, I am afraid, “Bother!” and other even stronger words to that effect. However, I never did anything about it, and when Alan talked about buying a new car, I would not contribute to the conversation, but very carefully changing the conversation so that the subject was avoided. Well, I have drawn that fear into my energy.

In our garage is a car which Alan has bought for me. I now am resident in the USA, having got my green card (it is actually a white card) last week, and Alan said it was time for me to learn to drive. How can one have such fear? I pride myself on helping people with fear, and I have such success doing so, but when it comes to my own, it is a different story. So I have to walk my talk! With trepidation I have agreed to have lessons from a proper driving school. However, before I do that, I have to do a written test. I can feel the Self already!! But I am now a lot more educated in the ways of the Self than I used to be, and I also now have the Higher Self a lot stronger than it was.

I know I am going to be fine, and look forward to the day I go shopping on my own. I will keep you informed of my progress over the next month or so. It is going to be quite an adventure; the learning never ends!

Public Work

For many years, people had told me I was going to be very public. When I was in Australia and New Zealand in 1995, I did become very public, so I thought that was what they meant. After that time, although I still continued to do radio work, I seemed to blend into the background of doing readings, teaching etc., but leading a very quiet existence. I thought my days of public work were well and truly over, but then again in 2000, Maitreya told me I would become very public in the future. He did not say when, just “in the future.” Meanwhile, life meandered on for a number of years as I just did teaching, and I almost resigned myself to the fact I had seen the last of the public work I was supposed to do. Nevertheless, time and again, Maitreya continued to tell me I was going to be public in the future. I should have known better!

In August last year, a contract was made to do a radio show in Seattle. So Alan and I began to do a monthly interview on the airwaves, then it became a weekly show, and now, of course, we do the show three times a week. I never ever thought I would be living in the USA, never mind being on radio and being with my husband, Alan. In 1995, I had come to the USA and felt strongly I wanted to stay here, but it was not to be. I could not stay longer than I did, which in the end turned out to be one year. During that time, I learned a lot about the USA, including its politics and way of life. I came back to the USA each year, sometimes twice a year to see my students and friends I had made, never realizing that one day I would marry and come to live here! People are amazed when I tell them I had no idea I was going to live in the USA, never mind marrying an American.

Now, I am doing what Maitreya said I would do, public work on the airwaves in Seattle. I was also surprised to find that our show is very popular, and as one listener wrote to me, “I wait every day you are on air for your show.” I think back to the years of hard work, and the learning which at times seemed so hard to deal with. I remember being told in 1992 by a very good clairvoyant, whom I had consulted regarding my first marriage, “You are going to be a very spiritual woman once you have done your development.” Thinking then to myself, “But I have already done my development.” Little did I know I had just then finished pre-school training! The battle with my Self was horrendous, and although I have come to understand the Self and what it is capable of doing, I feel now I have gained control over it. I also realize until I had gone through further training, I could not go with Maitreya to the public path he intends for us to take.

When we are on air, Alan and I have fun – do we have fun! It is the best thing either of us has ever done, but more than anything, it is Maitreya’s energy which creates the success! Without his energy, it would be just another radio show. His energy and the energy of other members of the Brotherhood enable Alan and I to run a very successful show, and to be able to uplift and entertain many souls who listen in daily. Yet even a year ago, I was questioning whether I had done the right thing in being with Alan and leaving Australia. My Self then was in the last throes of the battle with the Higher Self and I seemed to be losing the battle! I could not tell anyone how difficult 2004/5 was for me. My whole world was turned upside down. Looking back now I wonder how I survived? Alan said it was my stubborn Higher Self that refused to give in, and I must agree with him because what else was there that could have helped me?

I wonder how many of you had been told in readings you were going to do things, but nothing actually happened? Have you thought that your fear, doubt, low self-esteem, insecurity etc., might be the cause that prevented the prophecies from coming through? If you are told you are destined for higher things, let it happen, do not have fear! Think about me and my path, and how hard it was for me. Tell yourself; “If Margaret can do it, so can I.” The Brotherhood desperately need us to help them in their work, so what if it means you have to go public in carrying out their work? Think of it this way: you are doing the Masters’ work, and it is the work that is important, not the lower Self.

I never thought it would happen to me again, for I had resigned myself to a quiet life, almost a semi-retired one. What a selfish belief! I realize now that there is a lot of work for us all to do. I used to think it was a big job for so few to do. How dare my Self suggests that to me! With the web site and now with the radio show, we are doing so much to educate people, and what a thrill it is to do that! Let go of your fear and let your destiny happen. The more there are of us, the more we can do to help the Brotherhood. Just think of that.

Our World

Message from Maitreya:

It is interesting how humanity views us in the spiritual realms. A large majority of people who are on a spiritual search see us as ethereal beings in white robes with sandals and looking a lot like the way Jesus is commonly shown in many of the pictures on the Earth plane. We are not like that at all. We look very much like you do, and we have many colors to our skin. There are even some souls you would not recognize because they have not lived on the Earth plane, but in other dimensions. We do not wear your clothes, but neither do we wear robes. It is difficult for me to describe the apparel we wear, but needless to say, it suits our existence in our world.

Margaret once asked me what it was like in our world, and I told her: “It is like a big corporation without ego” for that is how it is for us. In our world, every soul is connected to the Ultimate Being, whom many of you know as God. We know all that is and we cannot lie to each other, so lying is not a part of our world. When we lie, our energy reveals it. Some do try this when they first come home again, but are soon found out, and it can be embarrassing to be found out. So once it has been tried, it is never repeated. We also have the most amazing sense of humor, and we laugh a great deal at social gatherings. We are certainly not holy individuals in prayer all of the time.

Your world is an illusion, and as such, when you come home again, many of you will find it hard to adjust because you have this image of us that gets shattered very easily. Whatever your conception of our world and us, I can assure you, you will not see that once you come back. It takes some of you much spiritual time – if you can call it that – to adjust once again to our world, which is your true home.

There is actually no time in our world. There is also no night nor day. However, if you wish to experience this, it can be created, because every thing in our world, including all our needs, is created by thought. This can be a difficult thing for many of you who come home, because you have to learn to control your thoughts. We are a happy community in our world. But there are areas known to many of you as the grey areas where souls, who cannot forgive themselves for what they have done in their previous incarnation, find themselves. To help those souls, we have specially trained people from the spiritual realms who go to the grey areas and assist them with their healing, so that they can eventually return to our world once again.

More than anything, we know a great deal about your world and, surprisingly, about the Internet, as you call it. We can use computers through our channels. We actually create many of the electronic devices you use in your world, and we do this by providing ideas and intuition to those who work in these areas. Margaret’s husband, Alan was one such person, whom we channeled information to, and who used this information very successfully to create his own business.

There is nothing in your world we do not know about. You, on the other hand, have to wait until you come home to see our world again. Why is this? It is because if you saw our world, you would not want to be on the Earth plane, as simple as that. Try not to have pre-conceived ideas of what we look like and how we live – I can assure you, it will be wrong!


Coming Back

Message from Maitreya:

Many souls have said to me, “Master, I have had three husbands. Which one will I be with in the spiritual world when I finally pass over?” This is a very important question that may frighten many souls, who think people return home to the same partner they have shared their life with in this incarnation.

Only a few Earth days ago from writing this newsletter, Coretta Scott King came home to the spiritual realms after 78 years on the Earth plane. She was the wife of Martin Luther King, who came home to us after the incarnation that ended in April 1968 of Earth time. When his wife died, many people said she had returned to heaven to be with her husband. However, little did they know, after coming home to us, Martin Luther King immediately elected to return to the Earth plane to finish the work he should have completed in that life, and once again as a black man. He is now a 36-year old man living once again in the USA. He never met his wife from the last incarnation. She will not be with him now that she has returned home. She, like he was, is a soul who came to the Earth plane to learn lessons.

It is NOT whom you are with that is important, but the lessons you have to learn. Yes, you can stay with one partner for the whole of your life, but when you return home, you return home alone. All of your relationships, husbands, even enemies, are no longer in our world. They are just fellow souls who enabled you to learn what was necessary in your life, nothing more!

In his lifetime, Martin Luther King was a man who was hounded by authority and investigated beyond what was normal. In his current incarnation, the man concerned has a fear of government authorities, a fear of communications, and even of the telephone, for his soul remembers the persecution so well. He has returned to the Earth plane to once again do spiritual work, but his fear now is such that he hides himself away. It is hoped that he will eventually overcome his fear and resume his spiritual work. He is not married yet in this incarnation.

Even when you return home, you may not be on the same dimension as your friend, partner or husband. If you have raised your vibration higher than that of your significant other, then you will go where they cannot go, to a higher dimension. Many souls fear not being with their partner in our world once they return home. They do not realize the more they fear it, the more they will bring that occurrence into their lives, so that when they return home, their thinking on the Earth plane has created an even worse situation in our world.

Let go of the need to own a partner, for that is what it is when you fear separation in the spiritual world. Why do you have the fear? Are you afraid of being alone? What is at the cause of your fear? In our world, you can have such a beautiful time with the ones you have loved. Know that you will be reunited in our world with those you have loved and lost, even those who have been your enemies will be your friends once more.

What of Coretta Scott King? Will she return to the Earth plane and meet the man who was once her husband? No, she has finished her Earthly existence and she will now stay in our world. When the man who was her former husband returns, she will rejoice and they will celebrate perhaps, but she will not be with him for the rest of eternity. This is the way of the spiritual world; nobody owns anyone else, and all are free to do as they wish. The Higher Self in all souls knows and understands this.
