Question: What is the Masters’ view of communicating with deceased relatives or ancestors?
Answer from the Ascended Master Master More through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Albuquerque (USA) in 2018.
If you go back to the 1800s, there was a phenomenon of spiritism or spiritualistic mediums, where many, many people engaged in these séances, sitting around the table in a dim-lit room and calling for the deceased ancestors of the people in the room to come forth and speak or give some kind of sign.
This movement was, to some degree sponsored or at least initiated by the ascended masters. It is another example of how we have said that we have to work with people at the level of the collective consciousness. We have to give people something that they are open to, that they can grasp and then hoping that it can help them raise their consciousness so that now they can leave this behind and find something higher.
We are naturally not sponsoring this today – we are not encouraging our students to engage in this activity. Today the phenomenon has sort of taken on a life of its own where there are some people who are seeking to make use of it to enrich themselves or even ensnare people or tie people to them and in many cases, this simply no longer works. It isn’t the spirits or their departed souls of people’s loved ones that are coming through in these séances. It is actually impostors from the emotional realm, in many cases, who are seeking to get people to release emotional energy that they can then absorb.
You will see that, as Mother Mary said about the channeling phenomenon, that the phenomenon in the 1800s of so many people seeking to communicate with beings in a realm beyond the material did have an effect on raising the collective consciousness and it set the stage for at least some people being able to accept that there were ascended masters in a higher realm, that could also communicate through a medium or messenger.
