Question: I have experienced in my life and I know also other spiritually inclined people also experience that we don’t have many relationships in our lives if any at all. Could the masters comment about this? Personal love relationships or any relationships at all. (Kim for clarification asked did he mean no relationships at all)
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Holland in 2018
As they say my beloved, old habits die hard. Many of those who are spiritual people today have of course been spiritual people for lifetimes. If you go back in time what do you often see the spiritual people did? Well, they withdrew from society and would either go into a cave in the Himalayas, some mystery school or some monastery. So you see actually many spiritual people who have spent lifetimes in seclusion or in very silent, quiet, controlled environments where they didn’t have to deal with the issues that come up when you live a more active life.
Many of you have chosen to come into embodiment in this lifetime but you are carrying with you this old tendency to – in a sense want to be in an environment where you feel comfortable. You feel you have things under control; you feel there are certain of the challenges in the world that you don’t need to deal with. You can carry this with you to the point where you become more introvert and you have a tendency to isolate yourselves. I am not saying that in all cases there is anything necessarily wrong with it or that you shouldn’t be doing it. For some people this can be the right thing to do at least for a period of time until you have come to some inner resolution.
You need to be very careful and use these tools and teachings to tune in to your divine plan and see if it is actually part of your own choosing that you should have more interactions with other people. Obviously the danger of isolating yourself is that your mind can become a closed system because you do not get feedback from outside yourself that can give you a certain frame of reference.
You need to recognize here that even a person who has a high level of Christ discernment and attunement with its I AM presence, can still benefit from interacting with other people. If for no other reason than – that part of expressing your Christhood is to help other people. How can you do this if you don’t have a feeling for where they are at in consciousness? In other words if part of your divine plan (as it is for most of you) is to demonstrate Christhood and bring forth ideas that can help other people shift out of their consciousness. How can you really do this if you are not in tune with where people are at in consciousness?
That’s why you need to be willing to look at: am I isolating myself in order to avoid something? In that case you have the tools to look at “what is it in my birth trauma that caused me to decide that since there were other people who hurt me, I don’t want to deal with other people” and then overcome that trauma. In other words I’m saying you need to come to a point where the reason you are not having many relationships is not a mechanism of avoidance, of running away from confrontation because you have overcome the wounds in your psychology that made you feel you needed to run away.
When you have done that, then you can see, is it part of my divine plan that I continue to live fairly isolated or is it part of my plan that I go out and have more interactions with other people. In other words I want you to come to a point where you know personally what that means for you and whether you should continue living a sort of solitary life or whether it is time for you to interact more with others.
