Betrayal can rule life

QUESTION: Masters, I feel a lesson for me in this life has been betrayal in my primary male relationships.  I have come a long way to resolve this but I’m still plagued at times in not trusting my Husband even though I feel the unconditional love that comes with raising above all these kinds of matters.  I am also wondering if there is a problem with my Mom over being so close to my Dad? Or am I just losing it all together in regards to this life lesson?        ~Sharon, USA

ANSWER: You are correct in your assumption that betrayal is a chosen life lesson. You also choose to question all personal relationships you would have. Knowing your lesson it is easier to work through the energy of that lesson. Your problem is that, while you know the lesson, you have not accepted the energy of it and released the negativity side of the events.

Pursuant to your plan for this life, you set yourself up to be betrayed in relationships so that you might see that the underlying lesson was to have faith in your own abilities and to learn to love yourself in any situation in which you might find yourself. You see the betrayal, but on most levels, say okay I set myself up to be betrayed, let’s move on. Never once have you asked why was I betrayed? What part did my actions play in the betrayal? Why do I feel that I need to experience this? Until you start asking these questions and going into your feelings, life will remain the same cycle of betrayal, fear, and second guessing people.

Even in the relationship between you and your parents you haven’t looked at the way you feel about each. There is a little competition that you feel for your Father’s affection. He and your Mom are not a part of this, it all stems from your lack of self worth and confidence. You feel you must be able to “best” someone, even within your own family.

Start working on getting to the bottom of the dramas in your life and everything will suddenly look and feel different. You do have lessons to learn but you do not need to let them control your life.
