What is Karma?

Do you believe in Karma?  A lot of people do.  What comes around goes around is one way to define Karma.  I was talking to a friend the other day and she put it very eloquently.  The word “Karma”, is a very small word to describe a very big thing.

I don’t necessarily believe in Karma in the sense that most people use the word.  Most people use the word incorrectly.  Someone once said to me that their example of Karma was:  “If someone steals a piece of pie, they will choke on it while eating it”.  While this is a very simple version and might be a good way to define Karma to a child, it is not necessarily correct.

I don’t believe in Karma in that sense.  I do however know that everything is energy.  The energy you put out is the energy you will get back.  Just because someone steals something doesn’t necessarily mean that they will  have “bad karma”.   What if they do not think there is anything wrong with stealing?  It is the energy behind things that creates our reality.  If they don’t think there is anything wrong with it, they will not create a negative energy about it.

You can think whatever you want with the logical part of your brain, but really it is the feelings behind what you think that will create your life.

You could do something that you think is a good thing, yet feel it is a bad thing and that may create negative Karma for you.

Take what I do for example.  I do what I do with the intention of helping people on their path.  Throughout my life I have felt that this was what I was here to do.  I was also exposed to a religion as a child that bombarded me with images that what I did was not a positive thing.

If I listen to my heart, feelings and inner guidance system, it tells me that what I am doing is a “good” thing.  If I were to get “stuck” on what some scriptures say, then I would be constantly doubting that what I am doing is a good thing.  I might even create some Karma for myself if I had the belief that what I was doing is wrong.

If you do things that create ‘negative’ energy for you, then you very well may experience what some people call Karma.  Really, it is just getting back the energy that you are putting out there.

There are many people out there that help others’ and suffer themselves.  This more likely comes from their belief system. They may have a belief system that says they are meant to suffer for others.  It is not necessarily Karma.

There are also many people on our planet that appear greedy and selfish (think big banking, oil barons etc.), they may not suffer “bad Karma” as most people define it.  The majority of them have no idea what type of energy they are putting out.  All they know is what their belief systems tell them, which is often “Survival of the Fittest”.  They think they are doing just fine.  They won’t necessarily suffer the effects of “bad karma” in this lifetime.

This is a very short post to cover a very big subject.  The way I have described it is a very basic take on the energies we are dealing with in this lifetime.  Take a look at what you really believe and see what type of “Karma” you are creating for yourself.

The Universe Responds to Your Attention

This is Levi, Calvin & Benny on their usual place on top of me in the recliner.

Just the other evening I was all snuggled up under my electric blanket in my recliner and reading an Abraham/Hicks book.  I have a funny story to share about that moment, that I think may help explain how the Law of Attraction really works.

I have 3 Shih Tzus, Calvin, Levi and Benny; Levi and Benny were fast asleep on the couch.  Normally if I am sitting watching TV or something I will have 1, 2 or 3 of them curled up in my lap.  The book I was reading was quite large, and I had no room for puppies on my lap this evening.

So there I was, all comfy in my recliner sipping tea and reading.  Calvin comes over and jumps up on my legs.  He was trying to crawl up my legs and onto my book.  I told him quite firmly to get down, I said “I don’t want you right now, I’m reading a book!”

No sooner had I said that, and Benny jumps up on me and Levi was preparing to join the other two.

My son says to me, “Mom, you are calling them all”.  I said, no I’m not, I was trying to get Calvin off of me, not the other two on me as well!”

Then my husband pipes in and says “You gave your attention to one, and now they are all coming over”.

So I clear my lap of dogs, and go back to my reading, this is what I read immediately upon commencing my reading:

“Most people believe, or want to believe, that everything in the Universe responds to their words in the same way that other people around them can sometimes be trained to behave.  When you tell someone, “Yes, come to me,” you expect them to come.  When you say, “No, go away from me,” you expect them to go.  But you live in an attraction-based Universe (an inclusion-based Universe), which simply means there is no such thing as no.

When you give your attention to something wanted and you say “Yes, come to me,” you include it in your vibration, and the Law of Attraction begins the process of bringing it.  but when you look at something unwanted and you say “No, I do not want you – go away!” the Universe brings that, also.  Your attention to it and therefore your vibrational alignment with it, is what is causing the response-not your words.”

Excerpt from “The Essential Law of Attraction Collection”, Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Teachings of Abraham

What a perfect example of the Law of Attraction, what we focus on is what we get more of, whether we want it or not.

My Guides are My Life Coach

Over the past few months I have been blogging a lot about Creating.  Creating our own reality, creating our lives.  I have been coaching and mentoring for quite a few years now, and I decided that maybe I needed a coach myself.  As I was looking for answers and a coach, my Guides stepped forward and offered to be that for me.  Normally our Guides do not interfere with our lives, and my guides are no different. They are not interfering, but they have offered to give me some extra help and the little “push” that I need to start living my life purpose.  I have asked, and they have answered, for this I am very grateful.

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do.  We have so many things we want, so many things that seem to be missing from our lives.  I see it in my own life, the lives of my friends and family, and in the lives of my clients.

Most people I come into contact with know there is more to life than what is manifesting right now.  Many of you have studied the Law of Attraction and it just doesn’t seem to work a lot of the time.

The Law of Attraction is like the Law of Gravity.  Whether you are aware of it or not it is there.  It is impacting your life every second of every day.  Ignoring it or being unaware of its existence does not mean it is not there.

Thing is, a lot of the information available stops short of telling you what to do or how to do it.  You cannot meditate and affirm your way into the life you want.  You need to take action.

Sometimes you don’t know what action to take.  Because you have gone through so much of your life not being aware of the Law of Attraction, (it is new to you), now that you know about it, you have no idea what to do with it.  So much of what you read is contradictory.  Do this, but not that, this way, not that way.  It might seem to work for you for a few things, or for a short time, then things go off the rails again.  It can get very discouraging.

I am a firm believer that we CREATE our reality, and that constant change is necessary.  We need to follow our inspirations and our gut feelings, even if they feel uncomfortable.

It is for that reason that I have done up a new website.  I will keep this website up and I will continue to do readings for those that want them.  However, I have been told quite clearly that I am to start teaching even more than I have in the past.

I have a very clear connection to my Guides, Angels, God and the Universe and always have.  I am blessed in this way.  I am going to focus more on Coaching and Mentoring, and on teaching you how to connect with your divine purpose in life and to create the life that YOU want.

I have asked my Guides to be my Life Coach and Mentors.  I am ready to listen and to change and to create what I want.  I feel I was given these gifts and this knowledge so that I can share them.

You all have the gifts I have inside of you.  Don’t you think its time to learn how to use them?  If you would like help to create the time of your life check out my new website.  Empowering-Persepectives.com “Personal Training for Your Soul”.

Who Said You Can’t

Stop letting people tell you that “you can’t”.  Stop telling yourself you can’t.  YOU CAN SO.  You can do pretty much anything.  It will take some ACTION but you can do it.

We are so programmed to think we can’t do things.  It’s ridiculous.  It’s SAD.  Start being more aware of your thoughts and you will realize that you probably say ‘I can’t’ many times in a day.  You are probably also told by others that you can’t.

Think about it for a minute.  Let’s say you are thinking of switching jobs.  You have an offer or opportunity but you have a pretty decent paying job now that is as secure as they come these days.  You have been thinking about moving on for a while, but have been afraid.  You think about it, and say “I can’t change jobs, I have a good one now, what if the new one doesn’t work out”.  Well, first of all, if you don’t move or make a change, nothing will ever change.  Praying for change won’t do a dam thing if you are constantly thinking ‘can’t’ and you refuse to take some action.  So what if it doesn’t work out?  You get another job and change again ~ unless “you can’t”.  YOU CAN.  If you can do it once, you can do it twice or more.  Why not?  What would stop you except for your thinking that you can’t do it?

My son wants to change schools next year.  I have been asking him about his motivations for changing in order to help him with his choices and decisions.  He’d be entering grade 9 and still needs some direction from me.  I am certainly NOT going to just arbitrarily tell him ‘you can’t’.  I truly cannot think of a good reason why to say no.  I also will NOT tell him he can’t change back if he does not like the new school.  What would I be teaching him if I told him “Okay, but if you make this decision you are stuck with it, you can’t change again later”?  I am actually quite proud of him that he is brave enough to think about making such a big change at this time of his life.  He’s got lots of friends at his present school, and is having no issues.  He’s not trying to run away from anything, he’s trying to experience new friends and something new.  Not something that a lot of us can easily do.  In this situation, I REFUSE to tell him “you can’t”.  If he were to change and hate it, I would not say “You can’t change schools again” ~ if I were to do that, he would likely never be brave enough again to make such a big move.

What about where you are living?  I know at least 3 people in my immediate sphere of family/friends that are very unhappy living where they are living.  Very unhappy, miserably unhappy.  All 3 of them constantly say “I can’t” move.  They have valid excuses (I mean reasons), why they can’t move.  But with all three it would be doable if they really wanted to move and used their repetitive thoughts FOR themselves instead of AGAINST themselves.  They are so used to saying “I can’t”, that they are unable to see a way out.  They have completely shut down their inspiration and ability to create new situations.  Every time they think about moving, they lower their vibration by focusing on all the reasons why it wouldn’t work.  All it would take for them is removing the statement/constant affirmation “I am unhappy here but I can’t move”, and replacing it with “I don’t know how I can move, but I can, and I am happy”.

Two of the three people I am talking about are aware of and kind of use the law of attraction, and positive thinking route.  But it’s not been working for them, all because of a little phrase “I can’t”.  I guarantee, that if the phrase was to change from “I can’t”, to what I wrote above, inspirations will start flowing.  Pretty much everything in our lives has started with an idea or an inspiration.  Nothing shuts down inspiration more than that “I can’t” phrase.  The minute you say that you shut down 100% flow from the Universe.

By saying that you don’t know how you release the resistance of trying to figure it out.  If you could have figured it out, you would have done it by now.  When you use this statement , you free yourself up to get inspiration and ideas from your Guides, Teachers and Angels.  By saying I can and I am happy, you raise your vibration and allow higher vibrating thoughts and ideas present to you.

Saying you can’t do something and being afraid of change and movement will keep you stuck.  Imagine if you had done this your entire life, from the time you were born.  Imagine if when you tried to walk your parents said “No, you can’t do that, you might hurt yourself!”  It sounds ridiculous but that is what you are doing to yourself every day.  If you weren’t you would have what you wanted by now.

If you truly couldn’t do it, you wouldn’t be doing anything that you are doing now.  You wouldn’t even be reading this because there was a point in time that “you couldn’t”.   Everything in our lives starts with an idea followed by inspired action.

Sometimes changing (jobs, homes, life), can take some time.  It’s not always instant.  Maybe you really can’t “right this second”, change your living situation for whatever reason.  Thing is, that if you change the way you think, you CAN get there over time.

When I first started working out hard two months ago I couldn’t lift a certain weight, I couldn’t do quite a few of the extreme boot camp exercises we were doing.  I didn’t say “I can’t do these exercises”. I did not go in on the second morning saying “I’m doing it today”, that would be silly (talk about a useless affirmation).  It truly was a case of “I can’t”, physically it WAS impossible.  BUT ONLY IN THAT MOMENT.  NOT ONCE did I say “I can’t do this exercise” to my trainer.  Not once.  There were a few times where I said “is there an easier way for me to start to work the same muscle group, this particular exercise is physically hurting me” ~~ notice my focus was on what I COULD do, not what I couldn’t do.

Every morning that I go to work out I am so freaking happy to be there.  I visualized, focused and affirmed for over 6 months that I wanted to be able to afford to attend that gym.  Every week, I get stronger, I can do more.  Things that my body was not capable of before are now easy for me.  It’s called practice.  The more I focus on what I do, the more I can do.  I still “can’t” run.  It hurts me.  I don’t say “I can’t run” though.  I say, I want to be able to run, I will keep working at it and getting stronger UNTIL I can run.  I am putting my focus on what I want.  If I only focused on the fact that I can’t run, I would never be inspired to try, to get stronger, to work towards my first run.

The rest of life is like that too.  You need to focus on what you want.  You don’t have to know how to get it, let God and the Universe take care of that.  First, you need to stop saying you can’t, and you need to believe you can.  Once you do that you will get ideas coming in for you that are ‘out of the box’ of where you would normally think.  Then, the next and for now, the MOST IMPORTANT step ~ TAKE SOME ACTION when you get the ideas.  Just like I cannot sit on my ass at home and THINK about working out and get stronger and fitter, you cannot sit on your ass and THINK about what you want to do without doing something to get yourself there.

You CAN do it!!

 

THE PERSON WHO SAYS IT CAN’T BE DONE SHOULD NOT INTERRUPT THE PERSON DOING IT.

 

 

 

Are You Getting Too Woo Woo?

Funny title I know.  But really, I know and am working with a lot of people who are moving into the 5th Dimension with Gaia.  This is wonderful news, it is so nice to see so many of you learning to tap into your own intuition, and to start learning about the Law Of Attraction, and using energy and Chakra Systems etc.

I have been teaching you how to work with energy for a long time now, and will be teaching even more in 2014.  I am excited for all of you who are connecting to your Higher Selves and are realizing that the LOA and consciously creating does work.  It is fun for me to watch the people around me grow.  I must admit, I feel less alone now than I used to when I was younger.  So many more people like me now!

I have been experiencing what you have been experiencing for almost my whole life.  It IS exciting, it still excites me (although, I must admit that I sometimes take it for granted, much like you take your eyes & sight for granted ~ but I try not to).

Back to the main reason for this post.

DO NOT ALIENATE THE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE LEARNED SOMETHING REALLY COOL AND NEW.

I feel like shouting this one from the rooftops!  There are many of you, that as you learn and grow, start to expect everyone to be where you are.  You absolutely must remember where you were a few months or years ago.  Learning all you are learning is great.  Sharing what you are learning is great ~ but only if you are sharing it with people who are ready.

A couple of things that I have noticed with “newbies” to this energy is that now that they “get it”, they expect everyone else to, and if people around them don’t, they get impatient.  THAT IS SIMPLY NOT FAIR.  I was born like this, and 40 some odd years ago it was much rarer for someone to be like me.  I learned very early on that if I expected everyone in my circle of friends to understand and to know what I know, I would have very few friends.

Some people just aren’t there yet.  You need to be patient with them.  Especially those people who have been in your life for a while.  YOU may be changing, but they might not be ready yet.  Stop judging them, or ‘calling them’ on the way they are talking or “manifesting” in their life.  YOU WERE ONCE THERE TOO.  Think back to where you came from.  That is where they are now.  NO ONE gets there by force.  You would not have, your loved ones or friends won’t either.  You can be a walking talking EXAMPLE, but do not turn into a preacher.  Don’t talk about things that are so “Out there” to people who are new to this that you turn them off and they start to think you are crazy (trust me, I know about people thinking you are nuts).  Alienation anyone??

Be patient with people, and focus on LOVE … I learned early on in doing readings that patience and love goes a long way to understanding.  I am sure that if I alienated, preached to, or yelled at you on my blog you would have stopped reading years ago.  Have love and compassion for people.  On a soul level they may want what you have, but on the 3rd Dimensional Level they do not understand yet.  If they are meant to stay in your life they will, whether they ever ‘get it’ or not.

This brings me to my second “warning” about being “Too Woo Woo”.  DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, try and live someone else’s life for them.  Do not become co-dependent, or base your happiness on how many people you can help to ‘get it’.  NO ONE GETS IT UNTIL THEY ARE READY.  You are not responsible for getting them ready.   You need to learn who you can help and who you cannot help.  The people who you CAN help will ASK YOU.  If they do not ask, then stop telling.  It is that simple.  If you are living your life by example (as opposed to preaching), people will ask you for your help or opinion.

Finally… KEEP YOURSELF GROUNDED.  I worked on this for years and years (like 30 before I really got it).  I now have some clients tell me I am the most grounded psychic they know.  It’s because I worked on it.  It takes a LOT of practice.  When you are living your life in the 5th Dimension, and giving a lot of your attention to your higher Chakras and working with energy, it can be easy to forget your lower Chakras.  It can get so exciting to talk to Spirit, or Angels, or to see colours, or to start really seeing synchronicities or manifestations, that you may find that you almost forget that you are living in a reality were the majority of people still don’t operate the way you now do.

It might seem like ‘everyone is getting it’, but that is because now that you have changed your vibration to a ‘higher’ state, you are attracting more people into your life that are like the new you.  The people that are still vibrating in the 3rd Dimension are still there, you just see less of them.

The thing is YOU STILL SEE THEM, and unless and until you move up on a mountaintop and are 100% Self-Sufficient, growing your own food, making your own electricity, and having no need for money at all, you will still need to deal with people that you may JUDGE to be vibrating lower than you.  The sooner you learn to blend the 3rd Dimensional Energies with the 5th Dimensional Energies the more comfortable you will be.

Congratulations for getting to where you are, it is just the beginning for you.  Have fun with it.  Enjoy it.  Be excited by it.  Create the life you want with it.  Just don’t get so Woo Woo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2014 A New World, or Same Old Same Old?

Both, neither, depends on where you are on your journey.

We have been in the 5th Dimension for quite a long time now (since the end of 2011).  In the 5th, it is easier than ever to consciously create for ourselves.

Things are changing for sure.  As a planet we cannot go on as we have before.

2013 was a big year for releasing things that no longer served our highest and best good.  I released a lot of ‘old stuff’ myself (subconscious thought patterns, habits, things I didn’t even know were there).  In May I basically asked my Angels and Guides to help bring to the surface anything that I was not consciously aware of so that I could deal with it and release it.  It was uncomfortable to go through some of the things that came up, but I feel so much better now.

Health

Physically I had a very healthy year myself (I think 2011 was my biggest year of ascension symptoms), but I know many people who became quite physically ill.  A lot of the illness was due to ascension, changes in our DNA, and I know a lot of people went through a big shift and detox as well.

With our creative ability being so much stronger in the 5th Dimension, if there are things you would like to do health-wise, like getting in shape or eating better or releasing illness, this year is the perfect time to start.  Do NOT focus on being sick, focus on being well ~ what you can do to be well, and energy work (and visualizations) of being well.  Some of you will see miracles this year.

Financially

In 2008 there was a financial meltdown like no other.  So many people seem to think that it has been over and done with and that it has been back to ‘normal’ for the past few years.  Its not, not really.  It is a really big illusion and it is only a matter of time before things go all weird again.

So many of the worlds currencies rely on the US.  The US says it is recovering.  That is so untrue it is not funny.  Nothing has changed there.  They are simply printing more and more and more money.  It boggles my mind that most people cannot see that for what it is.

Its much like you going out and getting 15 credit cards, a line of credit on your mortgage, a couple car loans and then using credit to pay the mortgage and car loans, and  just spending on the cards.  Eventually your credit will run out.  It may appear to your neighbours or your kids that its business as usual and that you are doing well.  Thing is, credit will only last for so long.

This post isn’t meant to be all doom and gloom.  Just saying it like it is.  What you chose to do with your finances will be a big indicator of how 2014 and beyond will look for you.

As an aside, if I had money in the stock market, I would be putting stop loss, sell orders on them, (I think that’s what they are called).  I personally won’t be buying stocks until they go way back down again, and they will.

Work and Career

Now is the PERFECT time to make changes if that is what you feel drawn to do.  It is all about Service.  Service to self and service to others.  As old 3D systems break down, there needs to be a focus on other human beings.  We need to love each other.  There are so many of us on this planet and we all have different gifts, different wants and needs, different points of view.  Community is important, service to others is important.  If you focus more on Service to Self ~ via doing work that you enjoy; and more on Service to Others ~ by providing wants or needs for someone else via your work, you will feel very fulfilled going into the future.

*** you can certainly still do 3D work, you may just need to change your approach to it, and your thoughts about it.

For myself, I am going to be doing a lot more teaching, mentoring and training.  I will still do some readings, but I have been doing them for many years and I think it might be time for me to do more work with helping you understand, and enhance your abilities.

Relationships

October of 2013 was a crazy time for relationships.  The planetary influences and the energy of the planet both added to volatile situations.  Many long term relationships were challenged, and got better.  Some ended.

For 2014 it is smoother sailing for relationships IF you resolved your issues in October.  If you realized in October that you were in the wrong relationship for you, and you stayed in it, it will not likely get any better (I am sure there will be a few exceptions to this, but not many).   Expect major upheavals if you decided to stay; you may find that you end up being somehow “forced” to let it go.

If you find yourself in this situation, just remember, You Are a Creator.  How you respond to any changes is how you will create your new situations.

You are in for an amazing year if you decide to walk into your future with confidence and love.  Your ability to have, be and do whatever you want is magnified beyond anything we have ever seen before.  We’ve always been able to do it, it is just so much easier energetically now.

For those that cling to the old outmoded energies of the 3D world without any awareness or appreciation for the New 5th Dimensional Energies, things may not be quite so rosy.

It will be extremely important to refrain from judging things this year.  A lot of our 3D systems and ways of doing things will be breaking down and/or changing.  We cannot go on as we have.  As you live with and observe what is happening, do not judge it as ‘good or bad’, it just is.  2013 was a challenging year personally for many of you, well 2014 might end up being an even more challenging year for our “systems”.  Keep your thoughts focused on what you want and how you want to feel through any changes.

Whichever Dimension you find yourself in, remember, You Create.  Yes, you attract, but more than that, You Create.  Monitor your thoughts carefully, because it is your thoughts that create your reality.   Allow yourself to DREAM, and DREAM BIG.  Focus ONLY on what it is that you want, and you will find that things come flying into your life, as if like magic.

Love, and Happy New Year,

Tamara
