2011 – Continued

The person concerned is just not happy with her career choice any more. When she left school and went on to further study, it seemed wonderful to her, but she has changed so much since then. Her beliefs have changed and she has adopted the teachings of Maitreya (which were hers anyway). She just needed to be reminded of them once again. She cannot be happy while she is in her present career. She has no idea yet what she will do, but I know that the Universe will assist her – will lead and guide her – to her new career.

As we head into 2011 and then 2012, many of you will be facing change, either from choice or by being forced to do so. Why do we fear change? I know my feelings when I left Australia in 1992 for New Zealand and connected with Maitreya. I was in fear of what lay ahead. I could not see the fact that I was moving to a better career opportunity in terms of both salary and living conditions. It was hidden from me. All I could see was the change and the fact that my Self did not want to move on. My Higher Self was so interested in what was ahead. It looked upon what was happening as an adventure, but not the Self. The Self moaned and groaned and gave excuses for everything. Of course, it was the best thing I could have done as I found out later, but in the beginning it did not stop the Self from annihilating me.

I see people every day who should be leaving their jobs and moving on, but who will not do so because of fear. They are so unhappy. They cannot see that their job is creating health problems, but the fear of the future – the fear of change and what is ahead – is so great that they cannot see they would be better off if they did move. But, of course, fear does many things, none of them positive.

Our Life Purpose – Final Words

It also amazes me how many people are in a job they hate, yet rather than open a new door they continue on in the job they are in and eventually have health problems because they are not at ease in their career. Rather than open a door to begin to study a new career if they have not done so already (and most have not), they plod along until eventually they create dis-ease, then full blown disease within themselves. I have actually seen people die because they would not make the changes they were capable of, all due to fear.

I am finally living my life’s purpose. I must say also that you are never too old to change. I had a 67-year old friend who had always wanted to do healing. Her astrological chart showed this was her true destiny. She had been a mother and grandmother but never worked. One day she came to classes I was teaching and learned how to heal. She found that she had (as I felt) a natural talent for healing and began using it part time. It gave her so much happiness to do this, and I know it kept her young and healthy. She is now almost 90 and still healing. I know she will make it to 100 and still be healing.

Are you unhappy in your career or job? Are you doing what you came here to do? You do not have to give up your job or career to open a new door. This can be done casually or part time in study and in working it (before one builds up a clientele) and then give up the old work one is doing. In closing, I wish to say that Maitreya, my teacher, taught me the fact that happiness is ours to create. Spirit does not do this for us – we do it. When we find our life purpose, we find our passion, and then one is truly happy. So many people never find their passion or their life destiny, and it is such a shame because they bring themselves around for another incarnation just as I did. I am so glad I found what mine is and that I am fulfilling it. Not only that, but I am truly happy in what I do. So many people tell me that I work so hard, but I do not feel that I do. It is not work for me; it is my true destiny and passion.

Our Life Purpose – Continued

What is your life purpose? Do you know? I will tell you now that, if I were to tell you, you might not want to do it. It never ceases to amaze me how many people do this and deny their true talent. Even worse are the people who say they have no interest in that career! I have lost count of the number of people who have said that, only to come back and say they could not believe how happy they are now that they are doing it. As parents, we often want our children to do what we want them to do, rather than what they want to do.

Both Alan and I have been guilty of this when our children were younger. I was a good – but failed – ice skater, so I put my children into ice skating. My son showed exceptional talent and so I persuaded him to be an ice skater and a coach. He hated it because it meant he had to be away from home to study for this. The Universe did everything it could to stop him from doing this. The local ice rink closed down, hence the need for him to travel an hour and a half to another rink and eventually stay with a family there. The cost for me was enormous, but at the time I could not see that it was not what he was meant to be. He was living my dream, and it took some time before I was able to see that and enable him to do what his destiny was which was to go into the services, namely the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force). He leaves that career in February of 2011 after 23 years of service. He has enjoyed every one of those 23 years.

Questions and Answers – Continued

The most significant thing I remember from the past 25 years is the way that the Self would trip me up, literally every time it came time for change. I was in New Zealand when Alan came into my life as my future partner. I had left my marriage but was still good friends with my ex-husband. I had a home in New Zealand with him, so we had to close down our association together with the house. We were out doing our business and, in one day, I fell over and really hurt my knees and legs about 3 times in one day. I had also done this three months before in Los Angeles when I was leaving my ex-husband, and I had about 4 major falls on that visit.

As a child I was always falling down and hurting myself each time change took place. I remember once (before having my tonsils out) falling over and really hurting myself so that the appointment at the hospital had to be changed! Recently, I have been having pain in my knee, the same knee I used to fall over on and, of course, what am I doing? I am moving into a new direction with my career. Also, Saturn is now in Libra. I am a double Libran and Saturn rules the bones and the teeth. It is interesting also that when Alan is facing change; he is bothered by his teeth.

However, after years of watching and observing the Self and the tricks it comes up with in trying to hold me and Alan back, I don’t give it any energy at all. When I do that, it soon gets fed up and goes away. If you can identify yourself here I would love to find out which body part your Self sabotages when you make change. Ironically, I now need a cane to help me move around, but I am hoping that, once Saturn moves out of Libra, things will get a lot better.
