Is it wise to delve into past lives for present day solutions?
PR 10 December 2015
Yildiz Sethi a personal development expert, (systemic Family Constellation psychotherapist and Vedic astrologer), has noticed that many people are interested in delving into past lives but questions whether it is wise or necessary in order to find present day solutions to what we face now?”
“There is an ancient Eastern belief that is coming into present day consciousness for many, that we are in a cycle of reincarnation.”
“There is an understanding that we come back each time to complete unfinished business and also to live out the karma that we’ve set up and experience ourselves in many different ways. Through what we do now we create more karma, both positive and negative and so the cycle continues, as karma is action.”

What is real? That is the great existential question.
Many of us spend our whole lives looking for what is real and true in an attempt to understand ourselves and our place in the world.
We look for meaning in many different ways relationship, career, family, friendships adventures of all kinds………………………….
How we make meaning is crucial to how we create our lives.
This may often be conditioned by family, society or religion, but in Be Rich AND Spiritual you are challenged to come up with your own view and to make it a view that allows you more possibilities for your life to develop in a prolific manner.
These are important first questions we each need to ask if we want to create a better reality now in terms of personal development.
The Spiritual Shakti of Karma and personal development
There is a lot of misinformation about karma. Many see it as punishment and are fearful of even considering or looking at it. Karma is action in Sanskrit while Shakti is power or divine energy. The spiritual power of action is overlooked in daily living for most of us. The notion of Shakti and karma come from the ancient Vedic teachings of ancient India and are deeply entwined with the spiritual, philosophical and practical teachings channelled by the Rishi’s (holy people) of those times to guide us on the path of life. From this philosophy we are souls on a cycle of reincarnation. We are spiritual beings that transcend from the spirit world into the material plane in coming into our human form. We come into this physical world and into an illusionary state. In each life we lose conscious and our awareness of our spiritual core and connections. From this point we are driven by desire into experiences of all kinds in our search for reconnection and fulfilment that we know at a deep intuitive level is there somewhere. Hence we search for it through many aspects of living, mainly through attempting to fulfil desires, goals and ambitions, creating wealth, right action or dharma and eventually after many lives we go into the final stages of awakening.
As soon as we have thoughts and actions we create karma. What we create we must experience, so what we create comes back to us. Either in this life or in another. We are part of the creative universe. We come from it and we return to it at the end of each life. Part of the experiment of living is to rediscover our creative nature in this physical plane and realise that we create it or co creative it with universal energy.
Hence we form beliefs to make meaning of our existence and our interactions with others. Some of these beliefs are healthy while others are less so. We create from our beliefs, so if we hold a set of dysfunctional beliefs that is the reality we create, whereas if we hold a set of functional beliefs we create a happy abundant environment. Only over many lives can we begin to understand what is healthy or not by the results we create. Healthy beliefs make us happy while unhealthy beliefs make us sad, frustrated or depressed. Our natural state is to be happy.
At every point of our lives we are creating and living our karma. This starts in thoughts, intentions and proceeds into words and manifests in action. It is helpful to know this as we can start to fine-tune our karma by noticing what is going on inside our mind. Notice our thoughts and what we are saying to ourselves. It is creating karma. If this is not the message you want to receive then change it. This is simple, but it requires commitment and focus to remain vigilant to the task. If you forget for a while, there is no need to give or chastise yourself, simple start again simply come back into watching your thoughts. This is a task that may take one or many lifetimes to complete. However within a short time you will notice that you will soon begin to feel happier and more satisfied as you are taking control of your destiny in a positive way.
