Forgiveness and generosity lead to financial freedom

  couple

Starting again after years of financial strain, healing can be possible through forgiveness and generosity. E— writes, I wish to know when our financial strain will end.  We have been struggling for 15 years.  My husband was unable to work due to a curse placed on him by a former co-worker.  We believe he’s healed and we are starting again.

Parama received the following information for this Life Reading: You should immediately begin planning for early retirement and relocation to a foreign country where the cost of living is much lower. Your overhead is currently too costly and this will continue to put unnecessary strain on your finances. There is an easier, less stressful option for you and your partner at this time.

Look into foreign investments and limit the support you give to family. Take care of yourselves now so that you can enjoy your retirement together without the stress that you’ve been under for these past years. 

What you think was a “curse” is actually a “karmic rebalancing” from a past life where your husband grievously harmed this individual in such a way that he was left destitute and homeless. In this life, your husband has had to “repay that debt” by experiencing his own financial hardship as a result of the influence of this individual. It is important for your husband to actively seek the forgiveness of this person, to make amends, and to forgive him for any wrongdoing.

To harbor resentment or to hold a grudge will only perpetuate your husband’s suffering in the future. It is better to put an immediate end to this negativity through an act of forgiveness. Start by writing an email, then try to met in person with the intention to make amends and move on with your lives. Everyone will feel much better after this is done.

Your husband might consider donating a portion of his current earnings to a chosen charity with the intention to clear the karmic debt that caused his past financial problems. (Note: I am NOT suggesting that you make any donation to me, as this would clearly be a conflict of interest!)…. When you are ready to make your donation, say a prayer (out loud) or write down a prayer on paper that this offering will serve as redemption for any past wrongdoings. Continue to make these donations regularly (monthly or bi-monthly), in combination with your prayer, until you see noticeable improvements in your financial situation (and you will soon, through your generosity).

Be sure not to let yourself get lonely. Now that your husband is busy with work, you find yourself alone a lot and wishing you had more company. Seek the company of friends and family. Join an activity group or social club in your area. Keep yourself occupied and out of negative habits that could affect your ability to make healthy, wise decisions. Now that you have more financial resources available, you must be careful to use them wisely, not spend extravagantly, and invest properly.

Avoid hasty, impulse spending. Instead, take time to research whatever you are thinking about buying before you buy it. Remember that you have a lot of choices and you don’t have to settle for the first thing that comes your way. You don’t have to be in a rush to spend your money.

A family member (close relative) will be asking you and your husband for money. Avoid giving too much. Explain to this person that you and your husband are now planning for retirement and must focus primarily on this. Encourage this person to be more financially independent. By being a good example of wise financial planning, you will help this family member more than if you just handed over your money.

Tend to your health and future happiness. The stress of these past years has taken undue toll on you. Take exercise classes and learn to meditate. Listen to relaxing music while you soak in a bathtub of hot water. The key is to relax as much as you can in the best way you know how. This will become more important in the coming years, since you will need to support your husband in learning how to relax and unwind too. Be an example for him. It won’t help to have two stressed-out people approaching retirement. You will have to lead the charge on a restful, happy retirement together.

Do not delay in looking into investments in a foreign country of your choice. Talk it over with your husband and take a trip at your next available opportunity. You won’t regret it.

Now is the time to do it: You must invest in your future health, well-being, and happiness together. Forgiveness is paramount now. Forgiveness will unlock the door that has blocked your financial freedom.

Letting tears flow during life transition

crying

Seeking answers to questions about living alone, how to proceed on my career path, my true life purpose, how to be of service “in my very best”, K— writes,

  • Although it could seem that I am in a major transition, it is actually more that I am stepping fully in my life purpose, which brings changes around and within me.
  • Living alone for the first time in 3 years, feels perfect.
  • Working two different jobs, in customer service to pay my overhead, and my true mission/purpose as an Intuitive Life Coach, which is very powerful and incredibly helpful to my clients.
  • I would like to know what I need to know to proceed further on my path. Financially it scares me the most, although I feel I am supposed to stay at my place, financially it does not seem possible at this moment. Work wise, the work I do in the outer world, to pay my overhead, seems to become more and more disconnected from my true purpose and the work, which also pays me, that I do with people.
  • Basically…is my apartment my place to stay?
  • How much longer do I need to work in customer service to support my true calling?
  • What I can do, do I need to know, in regards to my spiritual work, to walk this path fully and be of service in my very best? Thank you soulfully.

Parama received the following information for this Life Reading:

Keeping up something that you dislike at the expense of focusing on what you really want to do is like a fish trying to live on land. The fish will never belong and will always feel uncomfortable, because it is not inside its native habitat.

Plant your feet right where you want to be, and do what you want to do without moving around so much. You must find a way to live in a comfortable place close enough to your clients so that they can come to your office location. You will benefit from creating your own personal office for your business as a Life Coach.

There is a mentor (you haven’t met yet) who can deepen and hone your skills in this area, so that once your apprenticeship with this person (a female) is complete, you will be able to offer a unique service that only you, with your talents and training, can offer.

Consider your current location: Would it help you to expand your clientele if you moved closer to a metropolitan area? Where you are based at this time may be restricting for you in terms of growing your business so that it is lucrative. Only give up your “side job” once you have considered relocating your base where you are living and working. Network with friends in this area, as they can help you out.

Customer service, even though it is not your mission, is part of your training as a Life Coach. This job is important, for you are learning important skills in how to relate to and communicate honestly with people who are very different from you. There is still a lot to learn in this area. The customer service job will naturally fall away once you begin to grow your Life Coach business, but first you must complete your apprenticeship.

Your mother will try to strongly influence you not to move or make your career focus be Life Coaching. Her fears and concerns are borne of her own beliefs that a person cannot be successful as a self-employed service provider. She is afraid for your financial stability. Let this be her concern, and listen when she expresses her concern, but do not be influenced by her strong desire to dissuade you from what you know you want to do.

Life Coaching is your great talent and gift, but you lack experience in certain areas that your mentor will be able to provide for you by letting you observe her sessions with clients. You will gain wisdom and understanding of effective techniques and processes.

There is an artistic aspect of your personality that must be expressed in your work with clients. Do not suppress it, thinking that somehow it does not belong or would not be well received. Your artistic ability, though it takes on a form that may be unusual and nonconventional, will be very important in your sessions with clients, and you will find yourself attracting a certain kind of client – people who are all seeking the same thing, struggling with similar issues, and you will notice a theme: Capture this and use it in the name of your business. (Do not just call it “Life Coaching”; create a unique name that captures the essence of what only you can do).

Embrace and be open to the transition that is happening around you, for a move is a likely possibility, and you will need to make some adjustments. Be prepared for a shift in the kinds of friends you keep, and the amount of time you spend with friends. While social time has been a balm for you for many years, you are beginning a new phase in your life where socializing is not as important as authentic connection with a select few who support and inspire your mission work, and who will help you to take it to the next level.

You will, in time, become a nationally known leader and trainer in your specialized kind of life coaching. You have the potential to become a world-renowned teacher/trainer with workshops in many different countries. This is why customer service is so important for you at this time, as you will need to know how to manage a lot of people with a lot of different personalities and requests.

Do not be discouraged by how the demands of your customer service job seem to deny you the ability to offer life coaching to clients. Remember, the customer service job is currently part of your training ground to becoming the best life coach you can be … and what better way than to get paid on-the-job training? This is a blessing for you.

Take some time to express yourself artistically and reconnect with the joy and satisfaction this brings you. Be moved to tears if you have to, because when you start to express yourself authentically through your art, you may find yourself feeling pain from the many years of pent-up pressure of trying so hard to suppress your natural expression.

Letting tears flow will be a healthy and helpful release. Make time to be alone and do this when and as you need to.

Consider a change in your wardrobe and hairstyle, especially the colors you wear. Choose hues of blue more often, and consume foods that are blue and purple (naturally, not artificially).

Be open to connecting with a new circle of friends and acquaintances, as this will be necessary for the growth and maturation of your immensely successful new business.

Tend to the care of animals more often. Do you want a pet or pets at home? This could do you great good, to nurture an animal and be loved unconditionally by animals.

Personal health and wellness

opening_the_heart_chakra_by_jslattumd2o1x8d

Seeking guidance about finding my life partner, how to do my spiritual practice, forgiveness, love, and finding a job: V— writes,

  • Why so far have I not been lucky in finding a life partner?
  • Spiritually I am growing all the time but I cannot find it in myself to meditate. Is there a block?
  • All I want to do is meet my life partner in this life and dedicate my life to helping people in whatever form. That’s when I’m at my happiest. I am tired of the corporate life. Am I being wrong in wanting this?
  • I keep getting signs of me needing to open my Heart Chakra, giving and receiving love, forgive…etc. I have been doing as much as I can. What is the best way to do this? Thank you for this opportunity for help. It’s much appreciated.
  • Right now I am jobless. I need a job because I don’t have money right now. Why is it not happening for me? I have 20 years work experience and skills. I have re-located to another city to take care of my Mom who is recovering from surgery. I am finding it difficult to get a job. What do I need to do to change this?

Parama received the following information for this Life Reading:

In a previous life, your partner brutally murdered you by piercing you in the chest with a knife out of revenge and anger. You can release the karmic effects of this trauma by praying and asking God to cleanse and heal these wounds to your subtle emotional body.

This residual trauma has prevented you in this life from being able to receive love when offered to you by a potential partner, for in the past, this brought you to your death. The best way to cleanse away this negative energy is to participate in a ceremony involving fire, whether in the form of a bonfire (with a pile of old shoes?), a sweat lodge, or a small outdoor fire.

A healthy partnership can only come when one can authentically maintain wellness for oneself, independent of the other partner.

Do you honestly feel that you are keeping yourself well, physically and mentally, in your daily life? Is there a substance or a habit that has become addictive and harmful to your health? Are you prepared to address this and make necessary changes so that you can be healthy? Addictions act as a constant distraction from our equanimity and inner peace.

You want to “help others” …. Be sure to help yourself first and feel honestly that you are on the path to getting healthy and free of harmful addiction.

Details about your work situation and finding a job are not relevant to this reading at this time, as your personal health and wellness are of critical importance. Once you address this, then your external circumstances (including your job) will naturally unfold from there.

Life with a mission and purpose

 

hummingbird

S— writes with many questions about her mission and purpose on Earth. 

I am struggling with many things… What should I do/be/achieve in my life?

What is my higher purpose on Earth? Parama received the following information for this Life Reading:

  • Consider whether or not your intimate partner is healthy and supportive for you at this time. Do you feel you are investing more energy into the relationship than you are receiving?
  • Fashion design: especially women’s clothing (dresses in particular)
  • A totem pole in the shape of a large bird, then this totem pole transforms into a live hummingbird, then into a whale
  • Consider studying in Boston.
  • Higher purpose is achieving our full potential through the full expression of our unique talents and gifts. Fulfilling your higher purpose does not have to be this heroic, grandiose achievement. We know we are on the path to achieving our higher purpose when we feel a natural flow in our lives and when we feel joy, pleasure, satisfaction, and contentment. You may be putting undue pressure on yourself by believing that your higher purpose is something so grandiose that you could never achieve it, or that it would be a great struggle to do so. This is simply not so. Your gifts and what you love to do are perfectly suited to allow you to fulfill your life’s purpose, which is what brings you joy and therefore helps bring joy to the people around you.
  • A poodle skirt, followed by this information: Study the patterns and designs that have appeared in women’s dressed throughout different eras, as this will inform and inspire you. Seek to understand why those different patterns and designs were popular at those specific times. There is a psychology behind fashion design and fashion preferences. You have a particularly special knack for recognizing and matching a person or a group of people’s psychologies to their fashion choices.
  • Invest in sketch books and a set of pencils. Learn to sketch. Make drawings of the designs and patterns that come to you when you close your eyes and envision “that perfect dress” for a specific occasion or person. There is potential for you to make a successful career out of doing just this kind of work.
  • Remove yourself from pervasive tribal/social conditioning that would have you believe that you cannot achieve your dreams, in particular, your studies and career goals. Do not hold yourself back by buying into self-deprecating or limiting beliefs. You have special, unique talents, and only you can express these gifts with the rest of the world. Believing in yourself is more important than the opinions of your family and friends about what you should do with your life.
  • Surround yourself and expose yourself to your favorite kind of music and visual arts as much as possible. Seek to be inspired in your creative, expressive self. You can do it.

Thank you for requesting a Life Reading. The following interpretation explains how the information from your reading is significant in your life, as well as how you can apply the information to your everyday life.

In this reading, the symbol of a totem pole in the shape of a bird appeared. A totem pole is a symbol of indigenous peoples’ honoring the ancestral spirits, which are the represented by the birds depicted on the totem pole. A bird travels high in the sky, higher than humans can naturally travel. Higher elevation indicates higher connection with spirituality.

A bird is a being that can ascend to higher spiritual heights. A bird represents freedom to humans. Then, that bird transforms into a living hummingbird. The hummingbird goes from flower to flower very quickly. The hummingbird is a net-worker. It makes contact with many different flowers, which could represent people or points of contact. The hummingbird symbolizes an adept communicator connecting with many people.

A whale is a wisdom keeper. Just as the sky and being high in the sky represents a higher connection with universal truth, so to do the depths of the ocean indicate a deeper connection to the truth. A whale is a being that is immersed in the world of spirit who has the wisdom of knowing what is true. Let’s put these symbols together.

The bird represents freedom from tribal constraints. By “tribal”, I do not refer to the cultural traditions belonging to a particular lineage; I am referring to unquestioned beliefs that your family and associates have held, probably for many generations. These can be negative, limiting beliefs that you can choose to free yourself from in order to express your potential and your life purpose. Freeing yourself from tribal constraints and beliefs is the first symbol.

The next symbol answers the question, “If I am rejecting these limiting tribal values, then what should I embrace next in my life? How should I expand into the world if I am breaking away from tribal values that would otherwise pin me down?” That comes through the hummingbird and the whale.

The hummingbird is an adept communicator. It communicates by having contact with many different things. The hummingbird nourishes itself by having contact with many different flowers. Similarly, you could nourish the expression of your vision by having contact with many people, organizations, or groups. The great number of those contacts will help you to realize your full potential.

If you haven’t already done so, you might want to set up a social media page and actively connect with other people who are interested in the same things as you. For example, you might want to attend events where you can meet other people who are doing the kind of work you are interested in.

Then, we have the whale. The whale would be your connection to a profound connection to spirit. This appears to be what you are seeking: the vision for your life purpose. Whale is a symbol of connecting with spirituality by finding flow in your life.

In summary, you are being invited to break free from the tribal customs and beliefs that have been limiting your success and keeping you bound and beholden to ways of being that are outmoded and outdated for you. Next, be prepared to become active in seeking out lots of connections, friends, supporters, other artists, and resources.

You will have a lot of resources socially, and the richness of your social experience will come from having many contacts rather than just a few. Taking these two steps will then put you in a position to connect with the flow of a deep well of spiritual understanding.
