One of the worst spiritual
traps you can succumb to is believing you can avoid karmic retribution from
your past lives and present life. Such wishful thinking can make you falsely
believe you are invincible, setting you up for major disappointment.
Subsequently, as karmic
circumstances creep up on you out of nowhere when your guard is down, your life
is seriously interrupted or worse. As this happens, those unrealistic goals and
desires go up in smoke and you’re left in despair. Had you not entirely avoided
exploring your unique personal predetermination, you could have prevented a lot

create the reality you desire will permit you to skip your karma and fate. God

problematic mental or physical health that greatly hinders your ability to
advance in life; serious illness (yours or a family member’s) that drains your
financial resources and time; being stuck in a marriage with tremendous
family burdens where you have almost no free time to pursue additional
education and skills; doing “all the right things,” and “making all the right

it follows your soul from lifetime to lifetime and forces you to balance every

What You Must Do Next in Avoiding This Trap

can do to avoid life’s nasty surprises is to get to know yourself thoroughly. That

strengths and challenges (handwriting analysis is fantastic for this), as well
as your spiritual roots. Even if you only accept past lives as metaphorical information,
