Question: When praying for intercession for someone else, to what extent can the masters help that person? How does a person’s free will come into play when they are unaware that demonic forces are being exerted upon them? In other words, how are our loved ones cut free from disincarnates, entities, and demons when we pray for their healing?
Answer by Ascended Master Astrea, July 18, 2015 through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during a conference in Los Angeles.
Free will is the ultimate guide to anything that happens on earth. You cannot make a call that will work against the free will of your loved ones. Now, you need to be very careful when making calls that you do not project onto your loved ones something that violates their free will. It is not, of course, that we of the ascended masters will do something that violates the free will of the people you pray for, but it is possible that you can, by having an intent of making them change their lives, project energy upon them that will burden them and make karma for yourself.
It is, of course, perfectly true that, when a person is possessed by entities or demons, that person no longer has free will, cannot make free-will choices. What you can do is make the calls to me or to other masters to bind and cut free the person – to bind the entities and the demons and cut free the person – and that will give the person an interval of time in which to exercise free will.
However, you need to be aware that in many cases when people are in certain difficult situations, for example an addiction, they are not willing to make their own choices, so even though they are cut free for a brief moment, they will not use the opportunity to make better choices. They will just attract another entity or demon. This is what Jesus demonstrated when he drove out the demons from a man and said that you can drive out one, but it just attracts seven more, worse than the first one. Because nature – and, by the way, also the astral plane – abhors a vacuum.
What can you do with loved ones? Well, you can make the calls, and you should make the calls. But then you need to be absolutely respectful of their free will. I know this can be difficult with people you care about, but this is a necessary ingredient on the path of overcoming the control games of anti-love. It can be, as was said by Archangel Michael, LINK extremely complex what people have to go through in order to awaken to a higher level of consciousness. You may look at a person and say: “Well, what they’re going through, what they’re suffering now, could not possibly be beneficial to their spiritual growth.” And you would, in many cases, be right that going into an addiction is not beneficial to their spiritual growth at the moment.
It may, on the other hand, be that the person needs to experience that situation, in order, as was said by Mother Mary, LINK to know what people who are in that state go through and then to demonstrate how to transcend it and thereafter be able to help others. It may also be that your loved one gets trapped in the addiction and cannot break free of it in this lifetime because he or she is not willing to make the decisions and take responsibility for growing.
I fully understand that it can be very difficult to look at this. But this is again where, when you step up to a higher form of love and a total acceptance of the outplaying of free will, you can look at this and say: “I have done whatever I can for this person,” which involves giving calls and decrees, but also in other ways trying to assist the person. But when you feel you have done what you can, you may need to surrender, to let go.
You may even need to decide that you do not want that person in your life anymore because it is not constructive to your own path. But you want to be careful about making that decision. You want to examine yourself and examine if you have an attachment to changing the person, or if you have a wound that the other person’s behavior is triggering so that you want to change the other person to avoid dealing with your own wound. In that case, you need to step up and be willing to look at your own psychology, for even though it may alleviate the tension to walk away from the other person, this will not help you grow.
So again, delicate issues. There are no black-and-white answers or solutions, but there is, as Mother Mary so graciously said, the opportunity to ask for Divine direction, for help, for guidance, to use your intuition, to tune in. And there is the opportunity always to ask yourself: “Am I responding from a state of love rather than fear or a wound?”
