It was not only the repayment of karma though, and the other issues (such as facing the fear and trusting), it was also the past-life injuries and health issues which came up. Issues would arise out of the blue which were connected to past lives. One of them was a painful left leg. The pain was so bad I thought I had bone cancer. The health problems began from the time I connected with Maitreya. There were many of them – aches and pains which came out of nowhere and at times stopped me in my tracks. I could not believe what was coming to the surface. I was lucky because, each time something did come up, I was told what it was and where it came from, but it was not easy having to cope with it – especially as I had to continue doing my work with Maitreya, which often involved traveling and spending time away. It is one thing to go through these things in the comfort of one’s own home, but to go through it in hotel rooms and having to fly around the world while experiencing it was not a pleasant thing to do.
Those years were certainly not pleasant, and were made worse by the fact that my husband at the time was also going through it and bringing past-life pain and issues with his health to the surface. It was seven years of this happening and not giving in to fear before it began to wane. After 1999, I felt strongly that I had faced the issues and, not only that, I would not face them in the future (which turned out to be right). However, at this time I had gone through 14 years of experiencing the past-life energy in all its forms. I did not take it easily either. My Self complained all the way. If I had a dollar for every time I wanted to leave and run away, I would be a very wealthy person in my own right by now.
