You were created so that you may have choice. Each one of you can take many paths. You are born with a plan, a map you could say perhaps. That map/plan is your astrology chart. That plan can take you into many possible routes or directions. You make the choice.
Only when you become enlightened and choose to fulfill your spiritual destiny do things change. When you are on the path of normal life (without much spiritual development) your choices do not cause too much harm to yourself, although they are important. However, when you choose to fulfill your spiritual destiny, then we in Spirit come in to help you. It is then that the choices you make become more important. It is usually at this time that souls choose not to go forward.
Spiritual development is one of the hardest things to do. Each soul chooses how it will learn its lessons. Some choose to suffer humiliation, some to lose those close to them. Others choose a life that will become difficult for them. Each soul makes its own choices. We just bring other souls into your life to help you learn.
Often this is connected to karma. Other souls are programmed to do exactly what is needed for you to learn. For instance, many years ago my channel had to learn lessons of ego, and her friend – who is also intuitive – told her that she would go to America “to read famous people and film stars.” This was bait to her ego to get her to go because, in past incarnations, she had been only interested in the fame and fortune. This was designed to test her to see if she would take the bait again. She took the bait. Things were designed in America to see if she would take the same path. Doors closed to her and her ego was shredded to pieces. She was tempted by those with money and position, but in this incarnation they could not touch her – she did not take the old path. She passed her test. When she passed we gave her the key to her future, the key to work with us in Spirit. Had she been tempted and gone with these offers, she would have still done much good, but she would not have connected with us, the Masters. She made the choice. It was then (after this experience) and only then that we gave her instructions for the Maitreya website.
Those who are your enemies on this earth plane are often your best friends in other dimensions. They come to the earth plane to help you to grow. Your choices decide your future. Each one of you will be tested to see your worthiness to work with us. This has to be done. You make the choice before you are born. The more emotional energy you give to situations, the more you stop your spiritual growth. It is often difficult to make the right choice because the Self says one thing and the Higher Self another. Yet, when one lets go and separates from the situation, then the way is shown which choice to make. Often this means letting go of people you love or the things you own. Yet the more you let go, the more you grow.
Yes, it is painful but remember: the illusion is that these people and situations are real. They are not. They are only created for you to learn. Your present husband/wife/partner will not be your husband in the world of Spirit. He/she will just be another soul. In another incarnation that person could be your son, father, or friend. When you raise your vibration you see beyond the illusion. You see life as it really is, an illusion. The choices you make decide whether you grow in spirit or not.
