Fate: Movie Stars, Fame and Predestination

Share Button

Fifty Hollywood actors of similar talent toil for years looking for that big break, frequently crossing paths through the same auditions and talent agencies. Eventually, two of them make it to A-list status, yet the others languish in obscurity. We don’t call it luck, we call it fate.

It makes me believe in fate. In most cases, the readings where I’ve been really bad have usually been the ones where I got the part.”
Robin Wright

After reviewing thousands of people’s comprehensive astrology and numerology charts, our objective findings consistently show those who are fated to become famous do, and those who aren’t, don’t.

That may sound “void of promise” to you, but we prefer to tell it as we see it to help you save time, money, and avoid heartache. Besides, life is about the journey, not the destination, wouldn’t you agree?

Consider these other quotes about fame and predestination:

“Casting sometimes is fate and destiny more than skill and talent, from a director’s point of view.”
Steven Spielberg

“When I was growing up in Terrell, Texas, I felt that it was not where I was supposed to be. I knew that I was meant for a different destination. I think that the minute I was born, there was something inside telling me where I would go, it’s like energy – an intangible destiny.”
Jamie Foxx

“…I didn’t know what I was going to do with myself. And then fate reached in and took me in its hands. I was discovered right out of high school and started getting work.”
Sally Field

“We are all tied to our destiny and there is no way we can liberate ourselves.”
Rita Hayworth

“I’m a great believer in fate. I think things happen in spite of, and despite, yourself.”
Randolph Scott

“Fate pulls you in different directions.”
Clint Eastwood

“Fate gives you the finger and you accept.”
William Shatner

Those who deny fate assert that force of will and hard work allow you to achieve anything. Perhaps there are multitudes of aspiring Hollywood actors thinking to themselves, “If someone like Brad Pitt can make it big, so can I.”

Do you believe Brad Pitt is just a pretty face and got lucky in his career? We disagree. The patterns symbolizing fame and money success in Brad Pitt’s comprehensive charts are beyond stellar, even breathtaking. The aspiring stars that never get a break, despite working as hard as anyone else, simply lack the necessary patterns. In other words, it’s their fate to never get that big break, and the unique patterns in their charts represent it. Again, we know this doesn’t sound encouraging, but we’ve found that being direct is ultimately more helpful to you.

Interestingly, extreme infamy is equally as easy for us to identify in the charts, as is an exceptional fall from grace, significant career beginnings and peak points, and key love life connections, to name a few.

After years of doing this type of work, we’ve learned the importance of working with fate and accepting what you can’t change, and It’s always heartening to see patterns of extraordinary success in an individual’s comprehensive charts.

After recently watching on a long flight Ex Machina and A Most Violent Year staring relatively young (36 years-old) Oscar Isaac, we appreciated his talent. We then reviewed his charts and were intrigued with how his overall lifetime mega fame and career staying power is similar to that of Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. He’s staring in the upcoming Star Wars movies, episodes VII and VIII.

The theory of personal fate (same meaning as destiny) tells us there’s a reason for everything and things happen when they’re supposed to happen.

However, fate does not mean you should always wait around for things to happen. Get centered, figure out your talents and what you really want, and take action. Fated events sometimes just happen to you, completely out of your control, and other times they occur when you follow your dreams and work toward success.

5 Future Predictions That Won’t Happen Due to the Laws of Fate and Karma

Share Button

The world is currently experiencing a technology boom and the future looks incredibly exciting. We believe technology and the overall standard of living will be exponentially more advanced, beyond your imagination, in the near future.

However, many seemingly possible future life predictions won’t manifest due to the laws of fate and karma. Below we list seven.

1. Robotic and DNA engineers promise to create immortal humans. Simply go to your local DNA manipulation shop and free yourself from the restraints of the cycle of birth and death. Live forever, they say. This won’t happen because your soul (not your personality) determines your life’s particulars, and it has plans for your next lives too. The same goes for the concept of transferring your consciousness from one platform to the next, never dying. This might be possible some day after scientists finally accept that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, and then address the soul instead of just the brain and body, but we’re a long way away from that.

2. The global, bureaucratic elite are aiming for a one-world currency. This won’t happen for the same reason a one-world government won’t happen: individual sovereign nation states have their own unique styles and trying to combine all the different cultures, forms of government, and fiscal policies is a recipe for disaster. The laws of fate and karma dictate that personal freedom is essential for spiritual growth.

Besides, the more power you, as a free individual, surrender to a centralized power, the greater the likelihood of tyranny. Individual sovereign nation states are a good thing, as is free market competition. We’re excited about future technology fostering more effective forms of bartering and financial exchange.

3. Religious extremists of various faiths and other bigots throughout the world are calling for homosexuality to be overcome in the future. They couldn’t be more wrong. Based on our empirical research, we believe sexual orientation is innate and exists before incarnating, rather than a choice like what you decide to have for dinner. As humans become more accepting and tolerant, sexual orientation will eventually be a non-issue everywhere.

4. We’re all for mutually rewarding, monogamous, long-term relationships, and tip our hats to those who are currently enjoying such a union. But the future won’t include more traditional American marriages and families; that relationship model may even fade into obscurity, eventually.

We believe one, five, or ten year marriage contracts will be popular in the future, just like they were common in ancient Egypt (if you’re both still compatible and happy, simply renew the contract). The trend will be toward more honesty and freedom in personal relationships because fate and karma demand it. The reason you see so much unhappiness today in relationships is because people have been conditioned to conform, swim upstream and fight the natural current of fate.

5. Technology will continue to do wonders for communication, but it won’t make tyrants and bullies nice people. War, in some form or another (e.g., economic warfare), and strife will never cease to exist on this planet due to the law of polarities. Utopia only exists on the other side, though technological advances and a growing number of people embracing the laws of fate and karma will create a better future.

Communication through thought transmission, increasing your intelligence through soft (brain implant) computing, inexpensive and unlimited fuel and power sources, new and faster ways of long-distance travel, non-invasive and cheap detection of cancer and other diseases, self-driving cars, holographic images of other people in your office or home instead of video communication, and much more makes the future very exciting. But the laws of fate and karma forever prevail.

11 Magic Affirmations to Magnify Confidence and Sense of Humor

Share Button

The power of affirmations can improve and even transform your life in many ways.

Can they help you reach any goal? Can you alter any situation to your liking? While positive thinking and the law of attraction are important, you need to consider other spiritual laws too. For example, the laws of karma and predetermination supersede the law of attraction.

We’ve found in our empirical research that a lot in life is fated (which is the same as being destined), which mirrors your personal timing.

Thankfully, you’re not just a puppet; you can make the most of your fate with your free will.

One way you can do this is with affirmations. What you think and believe can influence your reality, within the borders of your fate.

Affirmations are especially helpful when you’re plagued by worries, self-doubt and negative thoughts. Life is stressful and challenging, and how you perceive it can make a big difference. Take control and replace counter-productive thoughts with positive thoughts; it’s a simple and healthy way to use the incredible power of your mind.

The subconscious mind has a huge impact on your life and subconscious fears and defenses can cause lots of problems. Defenses include guilt, jealousy, selfishness, anger, argumentativeness, a domineering attitude, resentment, a temper, an anti-social personality, secretiveness, arrogance, vanity, and many more.

It’s not easy to change. In fact, sometimes your subconscious mind will go to great lengths to stay exactly where you are, what it considers safe, even if you consciously want to improve.

Fortunately, your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between reality and imagination. Therefore, repeating affirmations is an affective way to help you reach your goals or just to feel better.

Confidence and a sense of humor can make just about any situation easier to deal with, even change a stressful or unhappy situation into one you triumph over. With a little effort, you can increase yours with the magic of affirmations.

Below are 11 magic affirmations to help you magnify your confidence and sense of humor. The more you repeat them, the more your subconscious mind will embrace them, and the more you’ll naturally act confident and be funny.

Choose one or more of the following affirmations, write it down and tape it to your computer or dashboard. Repeat it many times a day, especially when you find yourself feeling fearful or thinking negative thoughts. You can also use them as a mantra on which to focus in meditation.

1) I am feeling more confident every day.

2) I feel peaceful, relaxed, and self-assured. (It’s easier to be confident and funny when you’re relaxed.)

3) I relax easily by breathing slowly and deeply.

4) I enjoy finding humor in life and making people laugh.

5) I find humor in everything and love to laugh.

6) I am happy, humorous, and fun to be around.

7) I feel calm, relaxed, and hopeful around other people.

8) I exude confidence, sincerity, and humor.

9) I radiate warmth, self-confidence, and love.

10) I sparkle with self-confidence, humor, and vitality.

11) I make people laugh with ease and confidence.

Note: Affirmations will not change your fate, but if you use them often enough, they’ll bridge the gap to a better reality.

Now that you know how thoughts influence reality, you can use these affirmations to increase your confidence and sense of humor.

7 Signs You Are Captain of Your Destiny and Fate is Not Real

Share Button

The fate vs. free will argument has been around for eons. We believe you have free will to make the most of your fate and even shape it, but not how you may think.

The motivational and self-help marketplace is full of well-intentioned professionals promising to make you the captain of your destiny. You can do anything you put your mind to, anything, they say. All you have to do is work hard, believe in yourself, and follow their advice.

We’re all for inspiration, but we like it to be rooted in reality.

Very few in that industry will concede to the concepts of reincarnation and personal fate. After all, you only have one life, they say. Others claim you’re just a body and brain with no soul. Fair enough–everyone is entitled to his or her opinion.

Unfortunately, if the motivational advice doesn’t work, a follower will feel like a failure, not understanding that outcomes depend on fate and that the journey is just as or more important than the goal.

The definition of fate, in part, includes events and circumstances in your life that you have no control over and cannot change. It’s pretty straight forward, but we’ve encountered many people who deny this basic concept or alter the definition to fit their agenda.

Are you in complete control of your destiny? Below we list seven signs you are the captain of your destiny.

1. You’re able to control the choices and actions of others–what they think, say, and do. You never face any insurmountable obstacles in your interpersonal interactions because you’re the master of your reality. Your superhero cape is as beautiful as you are brilliant!

2. Your health and that of everyone you love is like that of an Olympic gold medalist swimmer. There are rarely any physical limitations or illnesses to distract you from living the dream life you demand. If you ever do encounter any, you cure it with your magic wand and then go on to have the best year ever!

3. Despite clear evidence to the contrary, you believe you control your subconscious mind. All those hidden fears and defenses (e.g., arrogance) don’t bother you, and you never screw up because of them.

4. You’ve never experienced anything but success in your career. Every money-making venture you’ve undertaken has turned to gold, exactly to your high expectations. Nobody ever blocks your plans or projects because everyone knows you are the CEO of your existence and to do so would be an affront to the power of the universe. All you have to do is get in touch with the abundance of the universe and it’s yours, right?

5. All your relationships, including early life, family, romantic, and professional are completely harmonious. There’s no resistance, strife, or negativity. It’s common for you and all your loved ones to spontaneously break into song about the perfection of your relationships.

6. Every time you travel, nothing goes wrong. Delays, cancellations, bad weather, rip-offs, and other travel problems are for other people, because you are the controller of your reality.

7. Whenever something unwanted or unexpected happens in your life, you wave your favorite motivational book at the problem and call out, “I am the wizard of my reality! I command thee to go my way!” Magically, things do go your way because you create everything in your life, exactly to your tastes.

Unfortunately, nobody has super-human powers that will change their preordained fate.

Sometimes it may seem like you changed your fate, but the change was destined, as was using your free will within the framework of your fate.

We believe you can make the most of your fate and you can even shape your future fate (i.e., your fate in future lifetimes) by how you respond now to people, events and conditions in your life.

You can’t eliminate your fate, but you can do your best, which will optimize the rewards and limit the challenges in your life.

Watch Out For Psychics Who Say “Nothing is Set in Stone”

Share Button

Recently, someone e-mailed the following feedback and question about fate, free will, and psychics to us:

“First, I want to say that the older I get the more I believe you are right that the major events in our life were planned by us before we reincarnated. While many may find this frustrating and not want to believe that they don’t have total control over their future, I actually find it comforting.

“There have been many times in my life where I have put forth great effort professionally and personally and things just didn’t work out despite how hard I tried. It’s actually comforting to a large extent to know that those things just weren’t meant to be and there is a larger plan for me.

“Unlike other people who may find your philosophy off putting or limiting I like knowing that the next step or steps in my life are inevitable (if I understand you correctly) as long as I put one step in front of the other and take action and do my best along the way.

“I wanted to ask though, I have been to psychics before and many of them have been quite accurate in predicting events in my life though their timing has been off, why is it that many psychics believe that the future is not fixed and free will can change anything? This actually frustrates me when they say this because I don’t agree!

“Major events in my life have unfolded despite my ‘free will’ and efforts to change them. I just don’t believe things are ALWAYS in my control. You would think a psychic would realize this? Why is it so many don’t?”

Our Response

We believe it’s important to always proactively take appropriate action and assertively strive to reach your goals, yet also realize that the belief of being able to entirely “control your destiny” is largely futile and an ego-self construct.

Directing your destiny is about taking the most appropriate action (free will), which is innately part of your destiny, and also directing your future life destiny through doing the right thing now–destiny is something that extends beyond this life, into future lives.

As we always recommend, keep forging ahead in the direction you feel is optimum.

We believe the major events in your life are predestined, as is meeting the major players. The minor ones may not be, unless they influence you greatly. For example, if you have a “chance” conversation with a stranger who gives you information that leads you to significantly change your life direction, that was likely destined. You then used your free will to achieve your destiny; you moved in that direction and made those choices because they felt like the best options (such decisions hardly seem like “choices”).

You would think that most psychics would tell you that many of your future life circumstances, events, and conditions are set in stone, if they really can predict the future. However, many of them don’t, for one or more of these reasons:

1. They don’t know any better.
2. They don’t want to disappoint you.
3. They don’t want to believe it themselves.
4. They want an excuse as to why their prediction didn’t manifest and it’s easier to blame it on the faulty “nothing is set in stone” myth, or you for “not taking the right path” or “not trying hard enough.”

So what do you do? Keep doing everything you can to reach your goals, yet take comfort in knowing that there is much in life that you can’t alter or avoid, and that your energy is better allocated toward embracing and working with your fate instead of attempting to override it.

Free Will, Karma, and Fate – Self-Mastery Won’t Allow Your Future to be Less Fixed

Share Button

We find the level of ease in predicting life circumstances and events for those who are less self-aware is the same as it is for those who are more self-actualized.

If someone is fated to experience specific life situations, they will experience them regardless of what choices they make. From a spiritual viewpoint, there is less freedom in decision-making than most people seem to want to believe. Based on our empirical research, a lot more in life is destined than people may want to accept.

Are we saying that since so much is fated in life that it’s a waste of time to explore metaphysical concepts, or for that matter, to set and strive toward personal goals and make an effort to get as much as possible out of life? Absolutely not.

We never advocate a passive, unproductive approach to life, other than letting go of trying to change what you can’t change. First, one must “know thyself.” Then a person can work toward his or her goals that are within their personal karmic plan.

Someone might ask, “If everything was mapped out for us, wouldn’t we just be robots following orders placed by our higher selves? We do have some sort of freedom, don’t we?”

In large part, if you want to view it that way, yes, each of us are simply following through within our own unique karmic directives, putting one foot in front of the other to manifest fate.

Look at it this way: each of us incarnates to learn specific spiritual lessons. If we had as much free will as we have before we incarnate as we do while we are incarnated, how many people do you think would actually chose to experience the tough lessons, or any lessons at all aside from absolute ego-self gratification?

As we’ve said before, we have found that everyone has some freedom to “create” within karmic boundaries while on this earth, but not nearly as much as most people seem to want to believe. If people could become “anything” they want to become, nobody would remain what they are.

The charts show that there is no escape from what could be termed as soul responsibilities: necessary personal experiences while incarnated on Earth. The good news is that there is relief through acceptance, detachment, and unconditional love.

How to Know What is Fated in Your Life

Share Button

Meditation is one of the best ways to escape an over-active mind, become centered, and connect with one’s spiritual self. When you are centered you are better able to intuitively know when something is for your highest good.

Other ways to become more aligned with your higher-self, thus more aware of the next best step in all areas of life include the following: spend more time alone; avoid TV; avoid excessive alcohol; avoid drugs (even occasional use clouds perception); avoid junk food/emotional eating; avoid sugar and caffeine (promotes mind-scattering and the numbing of feelings); exercise regularly; read more; get more sleep; and spend time in nature. All of these ideas will help you to detach from your ego-self.

Various forms of meditation exist, yet the commonly acknowledged purist and most efficient way involves simple intense focus. Sitting comfortably in a chair or on the floor with your back straight, eyes closed, breathing relaxed, and your focus intently on your chest plate for twenty minutes or longer will help you detach from the conscious mind and be more in touch with your subconscious mind and higher-self.

This meditative process also helps to release a natural feel-good opiate from the brain. These endorphins have been clinically proven to aid in healing.

Don’t be discouraged if it takes you weeks or even months to become proficient in meditation. With practice, you’ll get the hang of it and benefit greatly. You’ll also instinctively know what to do and when to do it. You’ll eventually stop wasting time on things that are not relevant to your highest path because they’ll seem insignificant.

Alternative forms of meditation include running, walking, swimming, reading, knitting, drawing, painting, writing, and other activities that allow you to get into a “zone.”

It’s also important to consider when you first desire something. Timing really is everything, and comprehensive predictive numerology and astrology provide invaluable insight into all areas of life.

Numerology and astrology are two ancient, empirical sciences that provide self-knowledge and peace of mind. They can also help you be aware of and prepare for challenging and rewarding times in your life, help you to further understand why you are here on earth, and to know what type of action is best taken at what time. It’s best to consult with an expert since there are many aspects to consider, but one of the more important timing indicators can be tracked easily by anyone. It’s called Moon Void of Course.

There are specific times every few days when the Moon is in between signs, or Void of Course. New ideas originated, plans made, or people met during this time usually turn out differently, if at all. Following the information in our Moon Void of Course article will help save you time and money and be much smarter about your decisions. Please keep in mind that there are many, many important astrological and numerological considerations, but the above-mentioned one is a good starting point.

“If you do not make the mistake of many and set up your will in opposition to Divine law, you will fulfill that high destiny for which you were chosen.” –George Washington

No matter how mundane or ordinary one’s life appears, every person’s path is an extraordinarily unique, and necessary part of collective universal destiny.

While those who act in opposition to “Divine” law, in our opinion, are fated to do so as part of chosen paths by their spiritual selves, and as symbolized by the patterns in their numerology and astrology charts, those who strive for more in life are also fulfilling what is to be.

Free Will & Manifestation – How Karma, Fate and Predestination Block Your Efforts

Share Button

Prior to years of comprehensive study and constant objective empirical research through ancient metaphysical delineation and predictive sciences (since 1992 involving the numerology and astrology charts of over 20,000 different people), we too mistakenly believed we could create anything our ego-selves desired.

Our studies and research allow us to conclude that an extremely high percentage of everyone’s major life circumstances and particulars are unavoidably etched in the rock of fate.

We consistently and accurately outline key conditions and experiences in anyone’s future (provided we have all birth data) including “gurus” who claim they are able to “consciously create” 100% of their realities, matching their conscious demands, as they live their lives.

Once you have witnessed, as we have, the continual recurrence of patterns in the numerology and astrology charts completely representing situations in peoples’ lives, you will stop rejecting the idea of fate.

An ideal love life, unlimited financial abundance, perfect health, constantly harmonious personal relationships and more would be nice, but we are now entirely certain that it “ain’t gonna happen” if it’s not part of the path that your soul mapped out before you incarnated.

For example, despite what you might see on TV about finding a compatible romantic partner, like the best-selling author promoting her book about finding the perfect husband in less than a year (“I did it and you can too!”), everyone’s karma is different and what works for one person (because it fits his/her karmic blueprint) may fail for the next (being outside of his/her earthly plan).

“Learn valuable lessons about commitment and betrayal by experiencing a difficult spouse? Forget it! Instead, I’ll create the perfect relationship!” “Endure a period of financial limitations to learn about financial acumen? Nah, I’ll create infinite abundance now and forever live the high life!”

Unfortunately (for the ego-self), the universe doesn’t work that way. Dodging your fate isn’t an option.

But let’s not forget free will. You have free will to take the right action at the right time, allow your earthly personality to play its role in manifesting your destiny (including your ego-self desires that align with it), react to your life circumstances, and improve and influence your situation to the best of your ability within the confines of your fate.

Along these lines, free will also enables everyone to help shape their future lives through every thought, intent, and action in their present lives.

If you want an ideal as possible relationship, you can exercise your free will and do things to prepare for this. However, we believe that even doing what feels right feels right because it’s part of your pre-destined path. You could do something that isn’t part of your earthly plan, such as drop out of society, move to the wilderness and live off the land, but you probably wouldn’t because it doesn’t feel right for you to do.

Perhaps most importantly, it would be nice if we could all have “perfect love,” but this would miss the objective of the majority of our relationships on earth: personal growth. A predetermined degree of challenge is necessary in order to learn the lessons for which we incarnate.

As far as releasing your love karma through spiritual exercises, this sounds like wishful, spiritual woo-woo thinking to us.

The only exercise we know of to do this is the exercise of experiencing what you need to experience in real life. In other words, forget the notion of being able to cheat fate, despite the fact that most “love experts” suggest otherwise. We caution you to be skeptical of spiritual solutions that appear to be quick fixes.

The good news is that you can ease, but not evade, your karma by acceptance, forgiveness, and unconditional love. For instance, you can’t erase the lifelong disharmony between you and your siblings, but you can lighten the load by how you view and react to it.

Although not always easy, the best methods toward personal and spiritual growth include the following: achieve self-awareness so that you understand your highest path; take the right action at the right time to manifest your destiny; embrace all personal challenges including all difficult people as a necessary part of the growth process; forgive yourself and all others; love yourself and all others unconditionally; live your life knowing that all energy you put out will eventually come back to you; and know that you can’t always get what you want, but that every experience serves a valuable purpose.

Fate and Free Will: Why Your Days Are Numbered

Share Button

A death in the family is always difficult and we feel compassion for those who find themselves in this situation. Why did it have to happen?–that’s often on the minds of family and friends. Was it predetermined?

The debate over fate and free will, which prevails, has gone on forever. Our empirical research with regression therapy, and comprehensive astrology and numerology tells us that we choose our paths (especially the key players and major events) before incarnating.

When we say “we” we mean our souls. Once we’re here on earth, “we” operate from our personalities. We as personalities have free will to make certain choices (the “right” one may be predestined and therefore feel right), but what we want isn’t always for our highest good and the highest good of all involved.

No matter what you or your loved one consciously wanted, his or her soul had already made the decision to leave in the case of an unexpected death in the family, for example.

Pre-set circumstances in each of our lives are necessary to learn important lessons. If we all had complete free will in life, we would skip the otherwise unavoidable challenges and miss the point of being here on Earth. Comprehensive numerology and astrology offer tremendous support for the theory that a great deal is predestined in our lives; conditions, opportunities, challenges, rewards, and more are consistently identified well before they manifest. These and other ancient esoteric sciences offer priceless personality, compatibility and timing insight.

Further research about predestination can be found in the fascinating books written by Michael Newton, PhD. Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls explain how our souls plan key circumstances and situations before incarnating on Earth.

From an earthly perspective, it’s not easy to embrace challenging life circumstances. Detaching from what you want (especially if you’re not absolutely certain it’s part of your highest path) and accepting and embracing “what is” makes life much more tolerable.

Yes, death is always difficult to accept, but from a higher perspective, there is no good or bad, just experiences to learn from. It’s been said that a true mystic views a diamond no different than he or she views a pebble. The mystic also accepts that this life is just a sentence in the text of earthly incarnations.

Destiny and Free Will: You Can Only Create That Which Harmonizes With Your Fate

Share Button

Some of our New Age friends claim they can erase all of their karma and create whatever they desire.

No more relationship, family, money, or health problems. Sounds good!

Alas, years of empirical research convinces us that this is impossible. Destiny and free will go hand in hand.

If it were possible to create whatever you wanted at any time and erase your challenging karma, numerologists and astrologers would be unable to predict your future circumstances. Interpreted correctly, numerology and astrology charts consistently reflect your predestined life situations.

It sure would be nice to have a totally clean slate in life and experience only what you consciously choose, but it appears that nobody has the ability to skip the difficult lessons.

A numerologist saying to a client, based on her charts, (with no knowledge of that person prior to the session), “…you fell deeply in love age 36 for the first time in your life…” and the client saying, “…yes, it was wonderful, and it still is…” supports the notion of fate and destiny, rather than absolute free will, especially since that same consultant would have identified the event in the charts before the client was 36.

As another example, some struggling actors “make it” and many don’t. Although the “path” itself is oftentimes more important than the desired destiny, expert numerologists can accurately determine who is destined for fame, wealth, or success and who is not.

Even the charts of so-called self-actualized people firmly indicate that they do not have free will to erase their karma and create as they wish. However, being self-actualized allows one to more easily accept situations and forgive people, so they glide through life with more ease than others.

Many feel it’s more accurate to think of life on Earth as the process of co-creating what is to be. A reasonable theory, based on life between life research, is that we all have complete free will as souls, but much of it can only be exercised before we are born into this world.

Yes, you must take action at the right time and put one foot in front of the other to bring about fate while here on earth, but to expect to be able to consistently “create the life of your dreams,” is unrealistic, unless of course your dreams are aligned with your destiny.

Many metaphysical practitioners promote such notions as “create your desired reality” and “erase your karma” (“anyone can do it!”). Unfortunately, their clients who fail to reach goals mistakenly assume they didn’t try hard enough or that they didn’t deserve to get what they wanted, when in reality the goal may not have been part of their highest path.
