Past Life Karma continues ….

Many readers have asked me what happened after Bound by Destiny was written. Was it the fairy tale, happily ever after ending? Well, I believe that as long as you are on planet Earth, you are here to work out your past life karma until you don’t have to incarnate any more. But there is always good karma and bad in the relative world and it depends on your level of awareness if you can act in accordance with natural law and earn your positive experiences.
So there is another book in me about what happened next since it has been 15 years since I married my soul mate. And yes we are still together and grateful to have found each other. But the challenges were huge when we were faced with navigating through angry ex’s, sad children and unfulfilled careers. Society and most of our friends at the time did not support our decision to leave our families to embark on a spiritual journey together. They thought we were selfish and cruel. At times we were labelled insane and because we meditated we had to be members of a cult. Hal and I were there for each other in so many ways – the guilt almost crushed us – the pain of seeing our loved ones suffer at times was unbearable.
But for the first time in our lives, were felt free to be truly ourselves. We knew deep down that our love was unconditional and we could make it through no matter what. What was so great was that we had the awareness to recognize our soul connection and not deny it. We then had the courage to follow through despite all the negative voices yelling at us to maintain the status quo and sacrifice completely for the good of the unit.
In Bound by Destiny, I talk about how I lived many lifetimes lost and afraid and died young. I had known Hal in most of them but he could never choose to be there for me. So the way karma works is that life presents situations where major lessons need to be learned so that you won’t repeat the same damaging patterns from your past. Hal and I know now that we decided to take on a major chunk of karma this lifetime to shorten the reincarnation cycle. Still, we had no idea that choosing to be together would only be the beginning of the major challenges and lessons we had yet to experience. Hal needed me to transition from his earlier addictions to alcohol, conflict and being a pleaser. I needed him when I was faced with a life-threatening disease that could very well shorten my life this time around.
I learned to let go of expectation and am trying to accept things the way they are. I feel good about myself and I am certain this is the first lifetime where I can say that and mean it. Transcendental Meditation has been the vehicle for my transformation in this lifetime and I am exceedingly grateful that I recognized its value 37 years ago and never missed a day since to find the silence. Despite the challenges I am the happiest I have ever been.
Hal and I have been through it all – literally. Nothing can stop us now!
