Life Lessons

Here I am back in Seattle, where the majority of my Metaphysical adventure began with Margaret when we moved here in December of 2004. It seems on one hand as if it was yesterday, but on the other hand, it seems like another lifetime. I had so many experiences and opportunities for learning during our time together. Some tests I passed, some I failed, and they are still recurring to this day. I have to thank Margaret and all the teaching she allowed Maitreya to channel thru her that has assisted me on my soul journey.

As I return to Seattle, my energy seems to have reset in many ways. Metaphysically, Jean and I are doing quite a lot of teaching, and from a life perspective, opportunities in business have come to the forefront just like they were prior to me meeting Margaret and Maitreya. Ironically, one of the last things Maitreya told me was that I had unfinished lessons with my former business partner. Well, it’s no surprise that the Universe has brought those lessons of communication, speaking my truth, being my own master etc. to the forefront as I write this newsletter. If you are like me, even with the knowledge of life being one big series of lessons to learn from, it is so easy to run or put them off. The self convinces us that we are too busy, or that its not a good time to rock the boat, unfortunately, the Universe keeps reintroducing them into our lives just as we have instructed it to do when we put our life plan together in the World of Spirit. It’s like the saying, “you can run, but you can’t hide”, but we definitely try many times, at least I have.

With that said, as I work on my lessons, I thought it appropriate to let Maitreya’s words speak for themselves on the topic.

Have a great month,


Maitreya Wisdom Card #49 – Life Lessons

Learning lessons is one of the key components of soul evolution. Soul growth is attained through learning your life lessons. What is a life lesson? A life lesson is where you choose to learn a specific topic, such as, patience, humility, detachment, speaking your truth, letting go of fear, etc. A lesson can be learned with anyone, and souls will keep coming into your life to mirror the lesson for you until it is learned. Once you have learned the lesson, those souls then move out of your energy and the issue is no more! There is a distinct difference between karma and a life lesson; they are not the same.

Each soul has chosen many opportunities to learn in many different ways. The soul alone chooses how many lessons to learn and how to learn them. People in your life are the mirrors and teachers to help you learn your chosen lessons. Lessons can be played out through people, relationships, events, situations and/or surroundings, depending on what you have chosen to learn from. If you run away from one person or a situation, then another will be presented. It is why people often say, “Why do I keep attracting the same kind of person?” or “Why do I keep having the same experiences?” It is because you have not learned what you needed to. For, when you learn the lesson, no more opportunities for learning are presented; the experience is over.

The school of life is not easy; it is not meant to be. You cannot learn while you are in the comfort zone of life. You also need to know that there is only one truth and it is: The lesson, once chosen, must be learned, no matter how long it takes. Often that learning can take many incarnations.

Therefore, whenever you are facing something you do not like in someone or something, see it through and don’t run away. Yes, there could be fear there, but the fear is only an illusion. Many times, once you have faced the situation, you say, “Why was I so afraid?” As you face the issues inside yourself, you then begin to raise your vibration and move closer to the Ultimate Being (God). Face your issues that are being mirrored for you by those around you, stop running away from your life lessons and you will move forward in vibration. You have drawn this card today to urge you to take a look at an issue you are currently facing as one of your life lessons, to face it, and to not run away from the learning.
