Question: In many cultures in the Western nations in the past there was a phenomenon where there were marriages between close relatives, e.g. brothers marrying sisters or cousins etc. Would the ascended masters comment on it?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Kazakhstan in 2018
This phenomenon is simply an expression of the fact that there is a tendency for karmic groups to form. Where groups – family groups have karma with each other. If they are not willing to resolve it then they can become more and more tightly enmeshed with each other. This is what then gives rise to this phenomenon of marriages with close relatives.
It is also what can lead to the sexual abuse of children by parents and other unhealthy phenomena in the family. So the rise of it in Islamic Culture is certainly something to make calls on if you live in such a culture. It is really just another example of how people sometimes need to take things to the extreme before they find some greater balance. You will realise that one of the ways to help people in such karmic groups progress is when they marry someone from another family that isn’t from the same karmic group. Therefore they get another perspective on life.
By allowing this inter-marriage of close relatives you reinforce the very tight family or tight karmic group and make it more difficult for people to escape.
