Another Answer from The Ancient Ones

This is an archive of answers from The Ancient Ones, channeled by Stacey Stephens, given to questions submitted by our subscribers from 2019-2020. 

Is the soul an expression of divinity? Is the soul pure or does the soul have a purpose or need for fulfillment?2021-11-18T23:07:48-08:00

Yes, the Soul is an expression of Divinity. And, it comes to Earth to assist in its growth toward purity. Within each human is a Soul Blueprint to assist in the achievement of this purpose. When a Soul can align with its vehicle – ego-mind and body subconscious – it creates the necessary circuit within the entirety of the Being, becoming its truest expression as a human. That is, its Soul Self. We aim to assist all who are interested.

Who am I becoming 10,000 years from now – how can I accept the invitation to receive from the ancient ones? I am ready to heal the world; I seek guidance to shed my veil and fully receive the invocation.2019-11-02T15:16:29-07:00

Your enthusiasm is enlivening. Our wish for you is that you remember who you are. We know you as the Angelic Being that you truly are. Sometimes, even Angels forget themselves during their incarnation here on Earth.

Your invitation for us to assist you is all we need to help you uncover your reason for returning to this Earth plane. And, we can bring you even closer to your goal with a few Channeled Vibrational Healing Intensives.

There is a lot of current information that we have shared through our Channel, Stacey. We recommend that you read everything on the Soul Self Living website. This very act will help you to dissolve the veil of this ego-mind world.

I’m struggling with my separated husband right now. We are trying to get back together but we just don’t agree on so many things, it is so hard, we have an 8 year old daughter and we disagree on how we bring her up amongst so many other things, but I think this is the one that’s driving us apart. Have you any parenting guides for parents with different views?2019-10-31T15:46:00-07:00

Yes, our parental guidelines are simple: Love, patience and acceptance.

Remember that “love covers a multitude of sins.” And, “love is patient.” Also, acceptance of another’s view, even when you disagree, shows respect for them.

Can you step back far enough to untwist from the “power struggle” that you have co-created together from your arguments? This tension wreaks havoc in any relationship. The very act of trying to change another’s opinion, or way of being, is a sign that self-righteousness is in play here. This is not a loving behavior that invites cooperation.

Instead, are you willing to release your judgements against your husband and allow him to choose for himself how he personally wishes to treat his daughter? With that said, are you able to stand firm in your own resolve to bring up your child in the best way you know how?

Whether you stay together, or live separate lives, the raising of your child is of utmost importance. What do you want her to learn from you?

Children are resilient, especially when they feel loved and accepted. Can you teach her to be loving towards others, accepting of other people’s differing views, while making up her own mind as to what is right for her? This will help her to mature more gracefully.

Are you willing to be patient with the whole process? Communicating your desires in a loving way can help ease tensions. Patience is wisdom in action. Acceptance shows respect for another. And, love fills in the gaps.

What is the best method for me to use to strengthen my body after surgery?2019-10-20T09:37:53-07:00

We would say the best methods would be as NATURAL as possible.

Juicing fresh produce, especially kale, will assist you on every level.

Utilizing Nature’s pain reliever, sleep aid and meditation booster – cannabis can help create a more soothing experience for recovery.

And, most importantly, we would recommend MEDITATION to assist you to clear out the intruding forces obtained during the operation and to help complete the grieving stage set up by the trauma of the surgery.

Acupuncture can help speed the recovery time.

And, of course, a Vibrational Healing Intensive with us can help you get back into your body and back on your feet, physically, energetically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Remember to keep your spirits up with positive, uplifting reading material, music, videos, etc.

Joy acts like an elixir for the body, so surround yourself with those who bring you such wonderful healing energy.

Prayer, conversations with God, and positive intention can give you a strength that hastens the healing process.

These are just a few of the many natural healing aids that can make your recovery a more pleasant experience.

How should I respond to a former colleague who is now reaching out to me months after ignoring my request to meet?2019-09-09T15:38:11-07:00

Original question: “What does this mean in the universe or how should I respond in this situation… I reach out to a professional work colleague through social media to connect/meet for coffee or lunch, and they do not respond. Soon thereafter, an event occurred where we no longer work together anymore. I eventually withdraw my request through the social media network. Life goes on. Several months later, the same now former work colleague now reaches out to me via social media to connect/meet for coffee or lunch.

Is it an opportunity for me to meet with them and forgive any unresolved issues for me, for them, for both of us? I want to focus on highest and best of intentions. I am unsure why this has happened and now it has happened twice in the past few days! Perhaps I am overthinking it. My tendency is to connect with them, but I am unresolved about them declining to connect when I had reached out initially.”

Answer: “Life has become so fast paced that many opportunities are lost or fall through the cracks. Sometimes life seems like a race to get it all done. In this hurried world of mankind, people may find it difficult to take a break long enough to get together with friends, colleagues or even family members.

There can be so many reasons why a person doesn’t get back to you. They may have never seen your request. A family member may be ill. Stress may have caused forgetfulness. Whatever the reason, can you give them a chance to make it up to you?

What does the Universe have in store for the two of you? Meeting up would help to answer that question.” ~ The Ancient Ones

In the totality of life on Earth thus far, how are we (humans) doing as a species?2019-09-09T13:54:22-07:00

We could say that you are excelling in many ways due to technology. Information is available to the masses. People can be brought together from around the globe to communicate their ideas, so that decisions can be made to benefit all of life.

And, we could also declare that you are falling behind in many ways due to technology. A lot of inventions that have been implemented to date have caused great harm to the health and well-being of humanity and all other life on Earth.

When you, as a species, choose to combine the natural laws of the Universe with technology you will master harmony with all.

There have been numerous attempts to do this from spirit-guided individuals throughout the ages. But greed still has too strong a hold on the purse strings of those in authority.

The time is coming when masses of people will awaken to their Soul’s inner guidance. This will be the answer that will inspire people to care more deeply for Earth’s needs. Seek to know your truth, your Soul’s wisdom. And, shower your love to all.

My greatest worry is that people now tend to get mixed up with sex and gender. And many young people medicate themselves with cross-sex hormones in order to look like the opposite sex. I’m not sure if they understand that we all contain both feminine and masculine qualities, and that the best is to find balance. It’s very worrying that young people become addicted to hormone injections at a very young age due to this gender-confusion. What do you think about this?2020-01-23T10:54:34-08:00

We hear your concern for the well-being of our youth. It is fascinating how through the eons of time people have gravitated towards self-altering procedures to change their appearance and reformulate their image. Because it is up to each individual to choose for themselves how to live their lives, there will most likely be these kinds of practices for all eternity.

With that said, we hope that in time people will come to understand that individuality is more of an expression from within. When a person can truly accept their body, male or female, and express themselves freely, they will no longer feel the need to make these physical alterations. We watch and observe.

Judgment from others tends to create exaggerated demonstrations from those seeking freedom of expression, until acceptance or tolerance has been attained. Once this occurs people tend to mellow and behave in a more balanced way. And, as people age, they tend to find their own rhythm, no longer needing the approval of their peers and others.

Phases come and go. What is popular now will fall by the wayside as something else takes its place. The key is to choose wisely for oneself.

Eventually, people naturally come to accept themselves. When they do, their quest for world-approval turns into a celebration of self-approval. How this comes about changes with the times. The big picture here is the attainment of SELF-APPROVAL.

We see people relaxing their judgmental ways in order to allow our youth to accept their own individual expression. When people are free to love themselves and others as they choose, peace ensues, and then balance can be achieved.

How can I remain nonjudgmental towards bullies?2020-01-23T10:42:23-08:00

We suggest you see beyond the veil of this ego-mind world and pierce into the spiritual realm where they too are Souls, like you. Try viewing them as their natural spiritual self, who may possibly be stuck behind their ego’s dominance, or crushed within their ego’s hatred, or blocked by their ego’s emotional pain, or pushed back by their ego’s fear of failure, or detached by their ego’s misperceptions of superiority, competition, separation, etc.

Can you find within yourself the fellow-feeling for these dear Souls who have been compromised by their own ego-minds which have temporarily taken control? They, themselves, have lost their Soul’s direction and are therefore operating without this wise guidance.

Bullying is a form of ego-bravado. Harmful acts are not desirable, and yet, a person’s ego may choose to do strange things based upon what they believe.

Those of us in Spirit do not judge people because we know there is nothing to judge. No one, including us, is superior to another. In the totality of God, there are no acts too great or too horrible. Everything is forgivable and forgiven, eventually. This is the great thing about karma and reincarnation. But, why wait to forgive another who has upset you?

Free yourself now.

Why are babies born with defects? Is it because of the toxic environment that we have created here on Earth? Or, is it because of their past life issues needing to be worked through?2019-08-11T08:55:05-07:00

The answer varies from infant to infant. Some powerful Souls do bring with them issues they wish to overcome. These, however, are less frequent.

Most defects are produced from the toxicity in the environment. Man-made chemicals of all kinds have permeated the air, water and soil, causing issues all over the planet. People need to bring the Earth back into wellness before they bring about their own extinction.

Because of years of pollution, genetic defects are on the rise. These defects mutate from parent to child causing multiple new issues. Again, this planet needs to be cleaned up from the ignorant harmful actions of humans.

One of the greatest threats to humanity is the use of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and the like. People are not designed to live on chemicals. And yet, these invasive drugs have become common place even among our youth.

Another issue that needs to be addressed is the mindset of the parents, especially that of the mother-to-be. During pregnancy, while a baby develops in the womb, it is affected by EVERYTHING that the mother encounters. Stressful situations, angry outbursts from others, jealousy and envy from those less fortunate, the unbalanced energy of visiting friends and relatives, etc.

If the energy of the mother becomes blocked somehow, it also may be blocked within the unborn. Growing a child in the womb is one of the greatest accomplishments a woman’s body can achieve. More care needs to be given during this time of development.

Besides a toxic environment, genetic defects, the unbalanced energy of others, and a mother undergoing stress, a child within the womb can also be negatively affected by the energy currents of technology that pervade the atmosphere. This technological age has brought with it some very harmful effects that can be eliminated through the proper use of technology. Humans have their work cut out for them to ensure the preservation and continuation of their species.

How can I release the grudges I hold towards those who have harmed me either on purpose or inadvertently?2019-08-03T13:09:53-07:00

“Forgive them for they know not what they do” is a wise saying. It explains how the ego-mind, distanced from the Soul, can at times harm another. And, it is your own ego-mind that is holding on to your grudges.

Souls incarnate for many reasons. Some come to work things out with other Souls from their past. Others arrive to overcome their own errors of their past. Each Soul shines bright when they awaken to their purpose.

When you allow your ego-mind to block your Soul’s love for another you remain stuck in the negative loop of blame. Rise above the fault-finding. Bring your consciousness into alignment with the true power of your Soul, which is LOVE for all.

Act like a boat on water and allow your Soul to move forward in LOVE merrily down the stream of life. Flow over and around the ego obstacles. Do not permit your ego-mind to waste time on grudges.

Yesterday is the past. Today is the present and tomorrow is your future. Leave the past behind so you can create a better future. Grudges only slow you down.

What does it mean to be a natural human being in this time?2019-07-27T16:25:52-07:00

Human thinking has shifted throughout the passage of time. There have been several eras where peace has resided among humans and the natural world. This ideal expression creates a natural interdependency among all of life, supporting wholeness and allowing the natural rhythm of the cosmos to do its magic in the lives of the people who flow with it.

This natural rhythm remains relatively steady, allowing everyone to plug into it whenever they choose to slow down long enough to experience it. Many people feel the need to unplug from the world of mankind from time to time in order to recharge in Nature. Humans yearn to connect with the majesty of this beautiful planet.

Life seems to unwind during vacations. Imagine living closer to the planet’s natural rhythm each and every day of your life. Stress would dissolve. Clarity of mind would ensue. And, the body would relax into its natural state.

To be a natural human being at this time means that a person would have to make an effort to come back to their natural rhythm with all of the cosmos. Are you willing to slow your life down enough to enjoy life the way a human is designed to live? Endeavor each day to bring your thoughts into harmony with the natural world and see for yourself just how in sync your life can become.

My sister doesn’t believe that a Healer should charge money for their services. How can I help her to see a different perspective?2019-07-19T13:04:28-07:00

Throughout the ages there have been many differing ideas concerning whether a person should be paid to minister to or heal another. In many cases, where it is agreed upon that a person with a gift of healing be paid, compensation is given in exchange for the practitioner’s time and expertise, very similar to that of a doctor.

We recommend to everyone that they seek to uncover the gifts that their Soul has come to share with the world and share lavishly. Whether their gifts are that of a healing nature or something else, all gifts are from God. We put no restrictions on how a person shares their special gifts. Being of service is key, as is remaining balanced in caring for oneself while also caring for another.

Why do religions and other institutions put so many restrictions on people’s behavior?2019-06-20T14:23:13-07:00

There are two ways to obtain a person’s agreement. Either through encouragement and invitation or through intimidation and coercion. One is of Spirit, the other is used by the ego-mind.

Whenever force is used, it is most likely an idea of the ego-mind in order to control the situation. Spirit prefers to allow people to come into agreement through proper spiritual education and the inner inspiration of their own Soul.

Controlling a person’s behavior by means of humiliation and punishment is a technique often used by institutions endeavoring to manage large groups. It creates an illusory sense of safety among fearful people.

LOVE and spiritual inspiration assist people in a more positive direction towards a greater universal approach. When people realize their own God-given ability to co-create through uplifting encouragement, they will then act from a deeper wellspring within them, namely, their Soul.

God creates. Fearful ego-minds tend to control. Spirit uplifts and inspires. Fearful ego-minds are likely to demand and punish. LOVE encourages. Fearful ego-minds are inclined to manipulate and coerce.

It is up to you to choose how you will allow yourself to be treated and to choose how you will treat others. We suggest you seek out the understanding of your Soul. Remember, God is LOVE.

How can we improve this world?2019-06-08T15:20:30-07:00

When people gather together in like-mindedness, there is a camaraderie that naturally develops amongst one another. Sharing in similar ideas creates bonds of trust. Action is easier to take when unity is strong.

All alliances are made through the process of agreements. Choose wisely what you yourself agree to and be sure to include the well-being of all in your decision-making process.

A world united in the desire for peace, prosperity and well-being for ALL will surely attain its goal.

Why do bad things happen to good people?2019-06-08T15:19:07-07:00

When a person believes in good and bad, it can be challenging to explain another concept that they can grasp because belief systems are strong and difficult to overcome. When a belief system is challenged many people feel discomfort with the process of figuring out what is best in the moment for all.

We call it being triggered. That is, the belief system is being challenged. We call belief systems programs. So, when a program is triggered a person may act out in a fearful way. This can look like anger, hatred, jealousy, judgment, hurt feelings, or withdrawal.

Everyone desires to feel safe. Trust helps to build a good foundation for the rest of the building blocks. Yet, it is challenging to build trust in a world that thrives on independence, rather than interdependence.

As a species, the human race has the potential to uncover the bedrock of how this Universe works. For too long people have tried the game of separation. That is, ego-mind verses Soul authority. This has set up the programs that teach good vs bad, this vs that.

When a person can open their mind to allow the experience of the interconnectedness of the Universe, they will then be able to comprehend that everything that occurs in one’s life is drawn to them by their own vibratory understanding of life.

This is why we have volunteered to assist humanity back into wholeness where their Soul guides all interactions. From here you will see a great change in your life. We invite you to delve into the amazing library that we have provided thus far. And, stay tuned to the Universal frequencies of life, love and oneness. Eventually, all will come to understand the universal language of LOVE.

How do I best express my masculine energy?2019-06-08T15:17:00-07:00

Care more deeply about what is YOURS. Masculine energy is active towards all that one desires for oneself. So, endeavor to include everything that is important to you. When you care deeply about your own well-being, you will choose better solutions for yourself.

When you care deeply about your family, you will choose more wisely how you provide for their well-being. And, when you include every living creature in your deep caring, you will act upon the well-being of all. So, care more deeply about everyone and everything in your life experience.

Then, you will be expressing your God-given masculine energy in the best possible ways for all to prosper.

How can I recall my purpose, and why did I choose my parents?2019-06-02T11:04:23-07:00

We would be happy to assist you in whatever way we can. There are many ways to recall your purpose for this incarnation. Meditation is the tool that most people use to uncover their truth. We suggest that you begin by spending time alone with your Soul. As you feel into the beauty of your Soul’s love, you may get to know yourself in a way that allows your Soul to ‘show’ you what is most important for you in this lifetime. This process can take decades or minutes, depending on how well you can move into love with your BEING.

We have reading material available on the Soul Self Living website that can aid you in this. Once you can bring your consciousness into accepting that it is love that wants to express through, and as you, you will awaken your true purpose.

We also work through our Channel, Stacey, to help people awaken their Soul’s purpose. When you feel ready you may wish to set up an appointment. Or, you could look for assistance from a spiritual teacher that you trust. The key is to relax your ego-mind and allow your Soul’s knowing to come forth.

Your parents are most likely Soul’s that you have unfinished business with from another time. And, because love is the Soul’s main purpose, you may find that when you awaken this love from deep within, your relationship with your parents may improve.

Our greatest teaching is LOVE. When you can see through the eyes of love, you will be seeing through the eyes of your Soul. Awaken to love, and you will awaken your Soul purpose.

Can a person manifest anything they wish?2019-05-30T14:22:53-07:00

LOVE is the word that describes how the Universe works. Yet, even the best of us cannot always live in and as pure LOVE. We may spend some precious moments there in each of our incarnations, but most people do not know the degree to which LOVE actually is.

God is LOVE. Humans are made in God’s image. Which is why they are to use LOVE as a tool in their co-creations. And, LOVE is creative. So, let LOVE create through, and as YOU.

LOVE holds no judgment. People who open their hearts fully cannot help but LOVE as God LOVES.


LOVE completely without restrictions. Then, you will KNOW LOVE.

From there a person may manifest anything they truly desire.

What can I do to obtain my spiritual equilibrium?2019-05-21T15:14:29-07:00

We have found that it can be helpful to remember how uplifting it felt when you experienced your heart open through acts of kindness and compassion. When you can set aside judgment and allow yourself to continue caring with your full heart, you will find a peace within that surpasses all understanding.

Balance comes when you can love and care for yourself, along with all of God’s creatures. Self-care makes you strong. Caring for others brings balance to your life. Love opens the way.

Whatever you decide to do in your life, open your heart wide, then act. Your Soul knows what you are to do. Rely upon your Soul’s knowing.

You will feel blessed as you bless others with kindness. Love is always the best answer.

Shouldn’t people be punished for wrongdoing?2019-05-14T14:51:15-07:00

In the ego-mind realm people believe that ‘wrongdoers’ should be punished. However, in the Spirit dimension we know a higher truth and, therefore, we say that GOD does not punish. Rather, when someone has done something that is considered harmful, we suggest that they be shown the correct way and be given the opportunity to make amends. This way the world becomes a better place to live and not a huge prison cell.

Ask yourself why you would feel the need to punish someone. Would you not rather have the offence corrected? How could putting someone behind bars help fix the issue unless that person can be taught or rehabilitated during a short stay in a rehabilitation center?

Caging a human being can turn even the innocent into criminals due to the harsh treatment. And, it can be very difficult to find work once released from imprisonment.

We prefer to assist people back into love. We hope you too will seek to help offenders by showing them that love prevails.

What happens to us when we die?2019-05-07T08:40:33-07:00

We would like to put your mind at ease by saying that death is a transition from living within a physical body to moving freely as a spiritual entity, or Soul as we like to call it. Your Soul does not die. Only your temporary material body dies.

Because life on this planet calls for humans to participate as co-creators, most people like to come back to Earth through the process of reincarnation. It can take many lifetimes to complete the Soul’s agenda.

Sometimes, a Soul may choose to stay in their spiritual form in order to assist their loved ones from the vantage point of Spirit. Guidance from Spirit can be very useful, as there are no time/space boundaries. We, ourselves, enjoy helping people from this magical place.

When a person has had a difficult time correcting their negative behavior, they may need more time working things out in a school type atmosphere provided in the spiritual dimension. It can be easier to adjust one’s false notions in Spirit before re-entering this Earth plane that is filled with great temptations.

Life everywhere is about LOVE. How well one is able to love all of life is the sole purpose of living. So, please enjoy your days here and complete your Soul’s mission to love, love, love.

I would like to ask about extramarital affairs and karmic account. Why do extramarital affairs happen? Is it some past life connection between those two people? And is an extramarital affair wrong? Because the definition of right and wrong is subjective. And if yes then why can’t we help it when it happens (even though we know it’s wrong)? What are the karmic implications of an extramarital affair?2019-04-30T08:20:04-07:00

We are pleased to address such a sensitive subject. As ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ are ego-mind definitions, we must claim a higher version of truth. IT IS ALL GOD; therefore, it is all good in the spiritual sense of the word.

Many wonderful creations have come forth through extramarital affairs. Our dear Channel is living proof of this. And, because she was raised without a father, she learned to rely on spiritual advisors, like ourselves, to help guide her through her life. We are pleased that her mother chose to keep her.

The main three issues we see with adultery are deceit, betrayal, and judgment. We will break these down: Deceit destroys trust. Betrayal hurts deeply. And, the judgment from the spouse and others can cause themselves to close their hearts, and sometimes cast curses by wishing ill of the offender.

The act of adultery itself usually comes from three reasons: Boredom in the relationship. Neglect from the spouse. Or, Soulmates reuniting. If boredom is the reason, then one may need to add more excitement and intimacy in the relationship. Neglect must be remedied, the couple possibly needing counselling. Soulmates finding each other can stir up such powerful past life connections that they may find it challenging to work through more appropriate ways that call for patience while dismantling their current marriage, before getting together.

Life is ever moving forward. Which means it can be messy at times. When two people come together in love and choose to marry, they make a promise to continue loving each other for the duration of their life together. Many are hopeful that this will continue until their old age and death. But most people end their relationship before then, creating a spiritual death of the marriage. Either way, whatever reason one gives for their break-up, it is all one’s own business.

We suggest that you examine your motives for an extramarital affair and weigh them to see whether it is worth the price of pain to all involved. Only you can decide for yourself what is best for you. GOD does not judge. Only humans make judgments. Your karma is created by what YOU think you deserve. Grace from GOD wipes all slates clean.

Why do people hurt each other?2019-04-27T15:04:00-07:00

It is an interesting phenomenon that when a person is hurting inside, they act out in a form of anger to pull others into their negativity. You could say that they want company, or they just can’t help themselves. We say, pain is like an infection that can spread like wildfire if it is not contained or extinguished.

When you find someone hurting inside, endeavor to be a calming influence for them while they work through their emotions. Remember that it is their pain that you are experiencing and not yours. This will allow you to help them without acting out yourself. The saying is, “when a blind person helps another blind one, they may both fall into a pit.” So, keep your center while you assist another to find theirs.

Emotional pain needs outlets. Endeavor to find healthy ways to express yourself when you are feeling down. Many people find upliftment while helping others who are in need. If you can, find ways to assist people who are less fortunate than yourself. When you see another going through harder times than yourself, you are better able to pick yourself up and out of your own unhappiness.

How do I open my heart more?2019-04-20T07:32:25-07:00

Our simple answer is to care more.

Care more about your own well-being. Care more about the well-being of your loved ones. Care more about the well-being of humanity. Care more about the well-being of the Earth and all its inhabitants.

When you care, your heart opens wide. Sometimes this can bring forth tears of joy for the beauty of life. And, at other times tears of pain for the suffering in life.

Caring is the greatest expression of one’s Soul. Every Soul comes to this planet to assist their fellow humans and all of creation. Seek out ways that feel good to you to show your care for God’s creatures.

There is no kind act too small. Every caring deed helps to uplift the spirits of those around them.

Remember how good it feels to LOVE.

I have been suffering from Cancer in a big way for 7 years. I’ve given up on practically everything. What can I do to help myself?2019-04-06T09:34:24-07:00

We suggest that you go deep inside yourself to your core where your Soul’s awareness resides. When you reach that place within you, you will know exactly what to do.

To get there, we recommend that you work with someone you trust who can assist you at this level. Remember the phrase, “Where two or more are gathered.”

Also, there is a great amount of elevating reading material that we have channeled that has been posted on the Soul Self Living website. This can help you to raise your vibration. It has been designed to enhance your connection with your Soul.

And, most importantly, we hope that you will take this time to mend your relationship with YOU. For this is your purpose for this incarnation.

How can I balance my masculine and feminine energy?2019
