Karmic Relationships – Inescapable, Unavoidable


“Shattered” by Shreekant Palapally

A beautiful explanation on Karmic relationship by Vijay Reddy –

“The relationship that drives people crazy with anger and frustration are from a past life. These are the people who really get under your skin and exasperate you endlessly. Very often, these karmic relationships are with people in your immediate family.

Karmic relationships mean that you’ve had prior lifetimes with this person, and you both were sent back to be together to work things out peacefully. This was your soul’s choice, although it was probably highly pushed upon you by your guides and angels who helped you script out much of your life. Usually a karmic relationship is someone with whom you had a battle or other harsh circumstances. You returned together in this lifetime to ensure that you’d work things out, and clear both of your energies.

If you don’t clear the energies in this lifetime, you’ll be pressured to continue to incarnate with this soul again and again and again.

And each lifetime, his or her relationship to you will continue to be close, either through genetics and familial bonds, or through friendship, marriage, or career. So, that annoying co-worker could be your mother or husband next lifetime unless you clear the energy with her in this one.

You’re brought together with the other soul so that you can forgive him or her. This doesn’t mean forgiving their actions. It means detoxing your soul by releasing anger toward them. You don’t have to hang out with the person, but you do need to release old pent-up toxic feelings. Holding in old anger is caustic and unhealthful.

It’s also a waste of time and energy to blame that person for family dramas and your own upset. Blaming is a projection of our ego, where we don’t own our own shadows and ego issues, and we put them in the basket labeled: “It’s their fault.” And while it may be true that that person is the instigator of traumas, blaming him or her doesn’t help the situation and doesn’t balance the karma between you.

Breaking the Karmic Cycle

The first step to break this karmic cycle is for you to take responsibility for its presence in your life. Your soul agreed to be with this person because it was necessary for your spiritual progress. So forgiving yourself is the ultimate secret to healing everything in all directions of time.

This involves forgiving yourself for entering this relationship whenever you did in the distant past lifetime. You probably were given red-flag warnings by your angels then, which you chose to ignore or override. Forgive yourself for ignoring those red flags, and vow to listen from now on. Life lessons only count if we learn from them.

You get infuriated by how this person behaves. But this is how this individual’s personality works and has always worked. You were the one who chose to try to be in a relationship with him or her long, long ago. You were the one who decided that all of those red flags that your angels sent you didn’t matter. You were the one who decided that you could change or fix the person.

Now it’s time to let go of that fantasy that this person could be as you desire or dream him or her to be. You’re not the other person’s Source, nor are you the author of his or her life scripts.

Karmic relationships are akin to having a tug-of-war. They’re power plays, where one person will pull and the other person will pull back. No one wins in karmic power plays. But when one person drops his or her side of the rope (through the process of forgiving him- or herself for getting into this tug-of-war in the first place), the power struggle stops.

Use prayers for forgiveness for other and self.
Saying bless you to the soul.
Find reasons to be grateful.
Learn the lessons by asking them to be revealed.

Live and Let Live


, ,

The reason I dedicate a part of my earnings to the rescue and care of street animals and wildlife is because there are so many people who want to hurt them, move them out of the way, destroy their habitat and simply profit off them. Animals are living, breathing cohabitants of Earth. They too have their feelings, and every right to this planet we call home. They can sense the fear and hatred in some people’s eyes towards them and will do whatever they can to protect themselves. If you brandish a stick at a street dog during your morning walks, he is going to look at you suspiciously and growl. If you do throw water at a group of monkeys searching for food because their habitat is destroyed they will come after you. Karma doesn’t miss a thing. Animals don’t expect you to love them, just accept them, cohabit and be kind.

Why Learn Meditation


Ever so often I read the cards of people who are overwhelmed by the stresses in their life. They may be going through a divorce. Or have suddenly been retrenched. Or are juggling way too many things in their life at once. The cards answer their questions but as a reader, I always recommend learning meditation as a tool for handling stress for the rest of their life.

Meditation allows us to release worries one by one with breath work. It allows our minds to reach a silent space of stillness where we can view our lives as an observer and not get swept by the storms around us. It brings us clarity and peace, even if it’s for a few minutes. And it gives us the strength to face whatever life throws our way.

And that’s only the mental benefits. When we reach a state of mental wellbeing our body cells and emotions respond with a certain lightness, radiance and energy. Almost like being renewed everytime we open our eyes after meditation.

If I were to summarise why meditation should be learnt it would because meditation is the only positive practice which brings us in touch with the beauty we possess inside by letting go of the unecessary and the unwanted.

“How to distinguish a real from a fake intuitive Tarot reader?” Quora Answer

This was originally published on Quora in answer to the question “How can you distinguish a real intuitive Tarot reader from a fake one

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Many people buy a deck of cards read the little white book that goes with it and then go professional within 2–3 months.

A real reader never stops learning the Tarot, they read different books, different schools of thoughts, and are constantly learning about the Tarot. A real reader will also:

1. Help you frame a question in a way that brings you the maximum amount of information in one spread.

2. Will know multiple meanings for each card and how they differ for each position of the spread.

3. Will never make claims of being 100% accurate because they know everyone is human and interpretation of the cards is open to error.

4. Will never try to scare you with cards like The Devil or Death and instead empower you with the real meaning of the cards.

5. Will end the session leaving you feel a little more clearer about the whole situation and not nervous or uneasy. 5

6. Will never try to ‘sell’ you remedies.

7. Will never make you dependent on a reading, as far as they go, a reading is a session in itself and never is the need to insist a person return weekly/monthly or ever. Their job is to give you what they sense and read about your situation and then allow you to fly free:)

Real Tarot readings are empowering and clarifying especially when used as a life guide and NOT a tool for prediction.

Meditation Symbols. The Butterfly



When the butterfly appears in your meditation expect change. Some of it will happen naturally for you. Some will be conscious changes you make in your life. Old habits and atitudes you need to let go of. Priorities you need to relook. Things no one can do for you but yourself to lighten yourself on your path.

Meditation Symbols – The Macaw

To see a macaw in your meditation means its time to revel in your magnificence as a soul. Be yourself. No matter what they say. You are unique, powerful and perfect just as you are. You don’t care to compare. You are you. And they are they. Your colours will always be true because you have nothing to hide.

Recording the Present Moment in a Report



“While the spoken word can travel faster, you can’t take it home in your hand. Only the written word can be absorbed wholly at the convenience of the reader.” Kingman Brewster Junior

Recently I got a call from a lady who had re-read a few Tarot Reports I’d written for her in 2006. She was surprised that they still made sense. And had kept printouts for her now grown up children to read. We discussed the advantages of Tarot Reports namely:

  • The meanings of the Tarot cards never change. They capture the essence of the moment of a reading. Sometimes they make sense during the reading and if written, they’re deepest meanings are understood much later.
  • While spoken words are forgotten, written words endure. Everytime you re-read them you understand the different layers and levels of the Tarot.
  • Written reports offer greater depth and detail than a short telephonic session or a face to face reading which give you the crux of the matter.
  • Written reports can be saved and given as gifts for your loved ones.

If you’re looking for a detailed Tarot report on the following, get in touch for details.

  2. Professional Report
  3. Soul Report

April 2019 Tarot Forecast for all sunsigns




There’s something about you few can match. Maybe it’s the way you think so quickly on your feet. Or maybe it’s the way you’re determined to accomplish whatever is set before you. This month sees you shine both at the workplace and in your personal life. Your intelligence and perceptiveness will will the respect of those around you. And if dare someone disagree, they may get a taste of your famous temper as well. Enjoy this phase. Lots can be done. Lots can be said. And lots can be achieved. You’re on a roll, and it can only get better from here.


Time to let go of the past and the pain dear Taurean. No point holding onto the memories when you’ve got a whole new life ahead of you. Forgive, forget and move on. New beginnings are at hand, and for those who’ve been broken hearted, a new love is in the in the cards. But first you need to free up the space to let new, positive energies in. Go on and have a good cry if you need to. Friends and family will support you and inspire you in whatever you want to do. Pick up the pieces and resolve to take care of your future.


Freedom at last. You may get time out to do what you want. Or you may be liberated from an old fear or block that was holding you back all this while. Look ahead with courage and the belief that you can and will do it. A slow and sluggish month at work leaves you with more free time to get your personal life organised. A family trip may be in the offing which would be just what you need. If single, get ready for some excitement up ahead. Make way for the new burst of energy that’s about to come into your life.


Temper temper dear Cancerian. If you’re not exploding at the drop of the hat. You may discover people around you are cranky, irritable or just plain annoying. Instead of letting up the energy build up, how about releasing all that pent up angery. Do something to destress yourself. At work someone may get an unfair advantage over you. Or a competitor may act unfairly. You do have rivals out there, no point denying it. How about learning the art of cooperation.


You’ve been doing too much for too many people of late. And you may be feeling tired, pulled in every direction and completely scattered. Time to gather up your energies and learn to say No to those who are wasting your time or simply taking advantage of your generosity. Ask yourself if you’ve fallen in the trap of people pleasing and do something about it. A job change may be in the offing. And if you havent updated your resume yet, maybe it’s time to bring in some changes in your life?


You may be in denial about something which is obvious to the rest of the world. Time to be completely honest with yourself. Soul searching will reveal where you may have done wrong. Make sure all the work’s done in time and in the correct way. A third party may cause trouble in your relationship or you may have to contend with some petty gossip. If you’ve been keeping to yourself for a while now, how about making an effort to get out and party before the invitations start drying up?


You’re at the crossroads. You may have to make an important decision about your life. Weigh the pros and cons and just go ahead and choose a path. The more you delay the more time you lose. A job opportunity may come your way which could be in another location or industry. Your long term mate may give you an ultimatum about committing to marriage. Or your parents may not feel like waiting for your excuses any longer. Time to pull up your socks and start doing what you promised to do.


Phew! The worst is over and things slowly begin to fall into place. The tensions seem to have subsided both at work and at home. If ill, the cards indicate slow but sure recovery. Have patience with people slower or younger than you. And if you were planning to buy a house or a car, things may get finalised. A long standing issue with a loved one could clear up this week. Sudden gains are indicated midmonth plus some international travel.


One of your wishes is coming true. Though not in the form you originally envisaged. Look forward to a month of harmony, peace and absolute love. A good time to spend time with loved ones. The cards urge you to share your feelings with someone special. A hobby could turn into a moneymaking opportunity. And you may discover something very valuable in your own cupboard. Or find something you thought you had lost. Not a time to be by yourself, the cards urge you to go out and spread the cheer!


What you want deep down is to make an impact, to do something no one else has ever dreamed of. And you know what, you can do it. Just take a little more of a realistic view of your surroundings and cultivate a little more patience. Be a little more assertive at work. You’ve got the makings of a leader. Just get out and show them. If something has been troubling you in your personal life, don’t keep quiet. Clear the air, say what’s in your mind honestly and discover a new sense of peace. The time is favourable for accomplishment and inner peace.



Whatever you want will be yours. Whatever you are working for will be realised. And whoever you want may want you back. The cards are all about setting clear goals, believing in your abilities and having faith in things working out in your favour. A good period for complete pending jobs. Your clear mind and assertiveness will ensure success in whatever you wish for. In terms of negotiations and legal issues, victory is yours.


An opportunity may come your way to upgrade your skills. It may be even be someone who knows a lot and takes on a mentoring role in your life. Keep your mind open to new experiences. And realise the value of this period. Someday soon you’ll be the one in power and you’ll have all these people to thank for taking you there. In relationships, a confusing period comes to an end. The person you’ve been eyeing for a while is interested. Who’s going to make the first move?

8 of Swords. Don’t feed the fear


, ,

8 of swords from the Goddess Tarot deck

“I’m so scared. What if I ask my boss for a promotion and he refuses me.”

“If I ask her out I’m afraid she’ll say no.”

“What if I fail my exams?”

“Will my father be angry with me if I tell him ?”

“I fear I will never get another job if I quit.”

Who doesn’t have fears. Fears are part and parcel of being human. And whenever the 8 of Swords appears as an answer to a question related to something that’s making you anxious, you can be pretty sure that the fears are not coming true.

A minor card from the suit of swords, this card talks about feeling trapped in our state of fear, of reliving the horror, and being unable to move to a space of freedom and courage. And that’s exactly what the card wants you to do. To not stay stuck, to move, even if it’s one step at a time.

A long time ago a wise old man told me “on the other side of fear is courage, be brave enought to walk through this emotion” At first I couldn’t. The ‘what ifs’ and ‘oh no’s’ swirled through my head like a never ending chorus, but with effort and self exploration I realised the fears that held me back were temporary blocks to getting what I wanted.

Whenever I see the 8 of Swords I always convey the message “Don’t let your fear of what could happen make nothing happen” Walk through the fears with logic and the help of a friend or a counsellor if you must. The fears you feel are false and on the other side could be the liberation you need.
