Messages from The Masters Chap 7 to the End

I am going to be honest, I finished this book and have started Dr Brian Weiss’s second book Only Love Is Real. But I will stay on track before I get too ahead of myself …even though- for me personally, Only Love Is Real is capturing me more than “Messages”…..oh its gooood!

From chapter 7 on is all about love. The importance of love and how to manifest it, nurture it and put it first in our lives and the benefits of doing so. It also talks about how the lack of love in the world and what it is doing to us on a daily and global level. Ive heard people say before that we humans are destroying the planet with our hate and war and just plain lack of human kindness. According to Dr Weiss if we replace our fear, hate and anger with simple acts of love and compassion that the energy around us as a whole will get better. It really does start with a simple decision. In return we would receive so much. We could be feeding our souls the empowerment that we feel we sometimes lack and the support of our great universe. I know for me, when I take the time to acknowledge those around me with love and just simple human kindness I cannot but feel good. I little smile or an opening of a door goes a very long way. And lets not forget about what we would be showing our children. We as parents are their biggest influence. So what would you rather teach your kids? Not to smile at a stranger or hold a door for them or to be angry and slam the door in the face of human kindness whether its to themselves or to others?
There is one more thing that I have to talk about before closing the chapter on this book and that is the uncovering of our “soul circles” or “spiritual families” that is described in this book through the examples of Dr Weiss’s clients while in hypnosis.

These to me are the best parts of the book. Although I learn so much throughout this book the excerpts from his sessions with clients are the “bread and butter” to me as a hypnotist as well as a person who has a huge interest in this whole topic. Dr Weiss gives excerpts throughout his whole book of these sessions and again to me, they are beyond interesting. His clients find that there are people that they recognize from their current lives but in past lives they are completely different. The belief is that we have the “spiritual families” or “soul circles” in which people reoccur in our lives, in different lifetimes but the question is why?? It simply goes back to learning our lessons. After our souls have rested and we are ready to return to earth and do more work, we “chart” our life. We decide, with the help of our spirit guides, what lessons we will learn and who we will learn them with. Sometimes there are feelings that resonate with this person because our souls recognize each other while or earthly bodies do not. While in hypnosis you are able to see the person and recognize who they are to you in all lifetimes but even more-so you are able to see the lesson that is to be learned and why. This clarity is almost beyond describing because it’s almost an instant understanding of something that is usually so hard to go through as a human being. While in hypnosis, whether you speak to your Masters or your spirit guides, whether you address topics in this life or those past, there is so much to be learned and really benefitted from. We can get a glimpse into what our soul is up to and even more-so, get a greater understanding of our lives not just as a human, but as a being as well.

Messages From the Masters 4-5-6

This book is truly amazing and is packed with such great tools and lessons about life. From The Masters, Dr Weiss states that our main source of learning is through our relationships with people in our lives. So to refer back to my earlier blog “Something to ponder” Dr Weiss states that we do plan our lives prior to coming down to earth and what lessons we will learn and who we will learn them with. And I find myself asking again, “What if??” For me, if this is true, and I happen to believe that it is, then when I look at the hard times in my life or relationships that I struggled with they all seem like gifts. With this gratitude comes an openness and offers something very positive to a place that is seen by many as so negative. It seems that the hard times in our lives really are meant to be worked through and when looking at these times as opportunities and envisioning the end result as a positive one only good can come from it. Really, it’s all in your perspective. Depends on what you choose.

Which brings me to my next lesson …choosing how long we want to be angry. (What did she say???) According to Dr Weiss “Love is constant; anger is transient”. He also states that anger, hate and all negativity is a learned trait. So what we should do is look at that anger and realize that if it normally would take us say maybe a day to get over something….why not shorten it to ½ a day. And if you can foresee that, why not make it a few hours … and so on. If we relearn almost how not to be angry, and therefore lessening our time of anger, there is more room to be positive and loving and the things that used to make you angry will not anymore! Quite a concept huh? This is not a one day process but it takes only 1 day to start it and to reap the benefits. Again- What if??? What would your life be like if you removed your anger? Anger is really judgment and the desire to control. When someone doesn’t act or live up to our standards, with our judgment, we get angry. So what if you picked 1 person that you feel a steady stream of anger towards, we all have this person and you look at what you are judging them for. This is not an easy thing for most people to do.  Normally folks don’t like to look at what they might be doing wrong for some reason it’s just too upsetting. Rather than allowing themselves to learn and grow in this area would be so beneficial- otherwise- the anger and disappointment will reside continually.

These are only a few of the key points that stood out for me in these 3 chapters-its really hard for me to pick out just a few because there’s so much useful information. There is one last thing that I will leave you with that Dr Weiss stated. I think it’s very powerful.
“Forgiveness is not forgetting. It’s understanding.”  I think that the key point in this is what exactly we are understanding. Maybe it has something to do with what you need to forgive, but even more so, it’s understanding the lesson for you in the situation at hand. The higher lesson for your true self to be able to evolve. Maybe it’s the pathway to emotional growth and freedom!

Messages From The Masters

Recently I have found myself getting more involved in the past life phenomenon. This is full circle for me because it is the original reason that I had become a Hypnotist in the first place. But it seemed to go on the back burner while I concentrated on hypnotherapy. I suppose that this order was crucial to my learning, and of corse no accident. That being said, I have loaded myself up on great books on the subject of past lives and who better to start with than Dr Brian Weiss! Known mostly for his work with “Catherine” in “Many Lives Many Masters” , Dr Weiss and Catherine not only learn about the effects that past lives have on our present lives- Catherine also received messages from her Masters. She learned immeasurable lessons about (her) life and why we all go through the things we go through.

I am now 3 chapters into “Messages From The Masters” and have decided to share my journey with you because the information in too amazing to pass up. This book is not just one big story but rather a compilation of many amazing experiences and lessons that are brought to Dr Weiss through his clients while in hypnosis.
I will do my best to share some of the highlights and lessons that are in this book as I read it and promise not to make it too long to read ….

So to bring you up to speed…. Who are “The Masters” anyway?

According to Dr Weiss and his findings, The Masters are “highly evolved souls not in physical form”.  While in Hypnosis a client (Catherine included) can remember everything that they experienced-however- The Masters are channeled which is a completely different source. In channeling, The Masters use a physical body to relay important messages about our lives. Most of their messages revolve around love and what it can do to empower us. According to The Masters “Love is the fulcrum of balance in our lives”. It possesses positive feelings, thoughts and actions and negates any negativity and is a true ultimate healer. Quite a concept huh?

So if you would like to read along with me- great! If not, check in on my blog and see what amazing things unfold in this book and the others to come!
