For the last few weeks, all of us here in Seattle, who are connected to Maitreya and his teaching, have been busy getting the new corporate premises in Redmond ready for our grand opening in November. For me, it has confirmed much about the energy I work with. I must admit when I was first told I was going to channel “a higher consciousness” in 1990, I had no idea what that meant. Then, when I met that energy (Maitreya) and began working with him, I soon discovered you do it HIS way, not any other way, least of all mine.
I had been told about my future over many years, and of how far I would go and what I would achieve, but it always seemed a distant pipe dream. There were times I would wonder if I was really going to do it, and if the energy I was working with was really there! When I became very successful in New Zealand, I went through the experience of public humiliation in what is known as “the tall poppy syndrome” – where successful people are razed to the ground! It was during that time I wondered if there was a God, and I lost many so-called friends and associates.
During the last two years I have made so much change in my life. Leaving Australia for the USA to live with my new husband Alan was one of the hardest changes to make. Creating our new healing and teaching center cum corporate offices brought back the memories of the very early years with Maitreya, and later, of starting the Australian center, and how, as many have faded away around it, it has stayed the course and is becoming very successful indeed. Its success is due entirely to the dedication of those who work there, and of course, Maitreya’s energy.
I remember a few years ago speaking with another channel and she was telling me of what she wanted – money, position, an easier time than she had then. Though I did not say anything to her, I knew that she would have to work hard before the rewards would come, just as I had to prove to myself. At that time, I had just been given some of the rewards for all of my hard work in the past, so I knew how hard it had been for me but could not tell her so because it would shatter her dream. This year, Maitreya, after all my years of training, gave Alan and me the finances to create the new facility which will take him to the world on a far bigger scale.
Finally, as I stated earlier, I knew Maitreya was real, and that my destiny – spoken so often by others – was finally a reality and not just wasted energy to feed my ego! It had been hard over the years during all the change, trials and testing, and yes, often very hard lessons, to believe it would happen. Now it is almost complete, thanks again to the hard work of a few very dedicated individuals who love Maitreya and his teaching.
The woman who left Australia in 2004 is no longer the same. She has changed so much, even I hardly recognize her. Much has happened along the way, much more change has taken place also, even friends in Australia can see it. I never realized I was working so hard, because I enjoyed doing what I was doing, as it was a passion for me. Only now, with the help of Alan can I see how hard I did work. However, the rewards are so wonderful now, and finally I am gaining the respect and understanding for Maitreya I always wanted.
It has been a long road, and as Maitreya has just said to me, it is an even longer road in the future, but it will be a smoother one. Maitreya has also told me this: “You have been trained by a Master to become a Master – a Master of your Self.” What better result for the years of hard work and testing could I want!
