Angelic Answers On Relationship

In the darkest of time, Jessica caught a glimpse of a light being, seemingly approaching her.

J(Jessica): Who or what are you?

AM : I have been assigned many names as I play many roles. But commonly, I have been addressed as Archangel Michael.

J: You mean THE Archangel Michael from the heavenly realms?

AM : (Smiles) Yes, and you are from there too.

J: Are you implying that I am an angel too?

AM : No, but your soul came from the same Source. And I am your guide.

J: Really? But I have never prayed to you. To be honest, I am not even sure angels exist.

AM: Dear one, I have seen you crying and asking for answers lately. You have been deeply hurt in a relationship, yes?

J: (Sobs) I just recently broke up with my boyfriend. It really hurts . I don’t know how I can move on in life anymore. We used to do everything together…but now…I am back to once I was before…alone. All I ever wanted was someone to share my life with.

AM: The longing for love and companion is most understandable. Humans have left the astral plane to be in this dense, physical world. On the Other Side, Love is ever prevalent but it isn’t felt here at all times and so …you miss Home dearly.

J: Why do we do this? Why would we even consider the notion of leaving a better place, if what you say is true? Are we paying for our sins or something like that?

AM: What you humans do is most honourable. You seek growth and you yearn to expand your consciousness. And you know that if you choose to remain in your non-physical form as a soul, you would not have the opportunity to learn from the many lessons a human incarnation offers.

J: Well, what lessons am I supposed to learn?! Surely it can’t be about losing someone I used to love?

AM: You chose a great challenge to understand the deeper meaning of Love and Acceptance. Before you broke up, you had many heated arguments, yes?

J: Yes, we did…and sometimes over trivial issues. (Sighs) Looking back, I don’t even know why we had to go through that… but please elaborate on what you just mentioned.

AM: As you succinctly admitted, you argued even over trivial matters in your relationship. This gives you a clue to the cause of your breakup. If you truly loved him for who he is, those arguments could have been avoided. You felt hurt, because he didn’t meet your expectations, yes?

J: Well…sort of..but isn’t my boyfriend supposed to accommodate me and respect my opinions? I gave him so much.. is it wrong to expect something from him?

AM: When I spoke of Love, I am referring to the Unconditional Love that places no demands on the other. In other words, the other party isn’t made to feel compelled to reciprocate. On Earth, you had a benevolent soul called Mother Teresa. Did she ask for anything in return when she helped all those people in her lifetime? Obviously the answer is “No” for her actions were rooted in Love and compassion.

J : Well does that mean it gives my ex the right to behave selfishly like he did?

AM: Dear One, I am not implying that he has no lessons to learn. But just because he too failed to understand the meaning of Unconditional Love, it doesn’t mean that you should also give up on him. That is what acceptance is all about.

J: Are you saying that I need to compromise and get back to him?

AM: That would be entirely left to your choosing, for I merely play the role as a guide. It is not my function to dictate human actions as I only provide insights, which you sought in your silent moments of grief. To explain further, you and your boyfriend set this intended relationship prior to your birth so that both could learn this common lesson. Nevertheless, the outcome of this plan, which certain people describe as ‘soul contract’ is subject to the effort of the parties involved.

J: Does this mean that we both failed in this lesson?

AM: It could have worked out better but from our perspective , nothing is ever a total failure for the experiences that you had did teach you something. All experiences are honoured and treasured.

J: I really don’t understand why there has to be so much suffering in life. My parents divorced when I was just a child. I felt so abandoned then. Now I am reliving that loss again. Is it really true about how Buddha taught that life is about suffering?

AM: Just to be clear, Buddha was one of those wise souls who came to enlighten the human race but he never preached that life has to be about suffering. Instead, he taught people ways to liberate themselves IF they were suffering. He advocated the need to control the mind and the practice of detachment. Thus, if you had detached any expectation from your ex, you most likely would not have ‘suffered’ as severely as you did.

J: That’s easier said than done…

AM: And why do you think we angels honour you human souls? You are all courageous souls who are willing to endure separation to experience such intense tests. Give yourself a pat on your back, dear one and don’t be too harsh on yourself.

J : I will try… but since we are on the topic of Buddha’s teaching, is reincarnation real? Do we have past lives?

AM: In human linear thinking, the answer would be “Yes”. However, from our standpoint time is not similar to yours as past, present and future co-exist simultaneously. Why do you ask?

J : Well, it’s because a friend of mine hinted that my bad luck in relationships could be due to karmic issues. I don’t know what to make of it as I am more of an atheist.

AM: Since you brought up the subject, there is an unresolved issue that is running through the theme of your previous and present life i.e. abandonment. In your past life, you deserted your family to seek for other self-fulfilling reasons, which I shall not elaborate. Suffice to say, your present parent’s divorce gave you the opportunity to reflect upon what you have once inflicted upon others. Hence, many of your spiritual teachers have surmised that life is fair and just. From our perspective, we concur …as there are really no victims in life but just students sitting for very challenging tests.

J: Wow, that’s so profound and so much to take in. But what if this conversation that we are having isn’t real?

AM: Well, if you have found some consolation and clarity with these answers, would it really matter?

J : Hmm…I guess not…I do feel more peaceful now.

AM : Then this conversation would have served its purpose.. be it your imagination or otherwise.
