Making Soul-Links With Another–Inspired by Mother Teresa

Making Soul-Links With Another–Inspired by Mother Teresa

There are soul links between people for which prayer is the link itself. Read this remarkable story of a soul link between every sister in Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity and a disabled and suffering person, which began with Mother Teresa and Jacqueline de Decker, a Belgian nurse, and ultimately involved thousands of people:

For two years, prior to meeting Mother Teresa in Calcutta, de Decker had lived alone and worked among the poor in Madras, trying to relieve suffering. During the same two years, Teresa had sought permission to found a new order that would serve the poorest of the poor. The two women met and de Decker joined Teresa’s project but soon became severely ill with a spinal problem and had to return to Belgium. Distraught, she wrote to Mother Teresa saying farewell.

Here is what happened next, resulting from Mother Teresa’s response to her letter, quoting from Beyond Love, by Dominque Lapierre:

“In the spaces of a few lines, Mother Teresa outlined for her a unique project: the creation of an association that would weave across land and ocean, the links of a mystical communion between those who suffer in their bodies and need to be active, and those who are active and need the prayers of others in order to be so. ‘Today I am going to propose something to you that will fill you with joy,’ Teresa wrote to her Belgian friend. ‘Will you become my twin Sister and a true Missionary of Charity, being in body in Belgium but in soul in India? By becoming spiritually linked to our efforts, through the offering of your suffering and your prayers you will share in our work in the slums.’”

Thus was born the Link for the Sick and Suffering Coworkers of Mother Theresa. The first links were formed between twenty-seven severely handicapped and incurably sick people and the first twenty-seven sisters who had gone with Mother Teresa to serve the poorest of the poor in the Calcutta slums. Thirty-five years later, the Link involved thousands of people.

the article says.

Oh, No!!!

Jesus and the master's of the far East are not the only ones who can take on other people's karma. If you feel too deep a sympathy for someone else and get soul linked to them, you can have some of their karma!

If it wasn't for karma, they wouldn't be in that mess in the first place. What goes around comes around is true. We just dont' want to recognize that it's karma when we get flattened.

Protect yourselves in the white light of God that never fails or whatever you use to protect yourself and your chakras. You wouldn't be here if you didn't have enough karma of your own. Or if you had not assumed other's karma to be heavy tenough to come to Earth and "help".

If you're one of those who came back and assumed karma to "help" you've got enough of it. You don't need any more.,

Protect yourselves.

Dang it. I care!!!

There's a lot of techniques out there that can even snare in a "master".

There are articles on the internet about telepathy and lots of things that can get your soul's tendrils ensnared.

I am amazed at the number of pastors and church leaders who are getting into these magick endangerments. And they don't have any idea what they're doing to themselves or to the other person.

Actually witches, who believe any harm you do deliberately comes back to you, I think it's 7 times, actually those witches of positive magick are safer than Christians who don't have any idea what they're doing. And Christians are getting it off the internet.

Getting your soul energy connected with others can be down right dangerous.

I suffered through it, for 2 years, I did.

It took me that long to get free of a virtual haunting.

And I had, before that, done several successful
exorcisms. I was no toddling infant.

It's dangerous.

Especially if you're doing telepathy or out of body you better be careful who you get linked with, not all people who can "do it" are good.

It's also a great way to pull in spooks who are bored in the astral and just want some fun at your expense.

I knew better, but I got netted anyway.

There, I've cautioned you,

Go get hurt if you must.

Very inspiring... collective consciousness works in strange ways. Prayer is a powerful means of inter- linking with like minds, among friends and strangers. Indeed, souls can be united, and this allows the flow of positive energy.
