If God exists and God loves us, then why is there so much injustice in the world?
Many of you may have asked this question, which may have become quite personal. “Why has this happened to me? This is unjust and I am a good person. I would never do that to anyone….”
There is a bigger picture and I will use Barbara as an example.
Barbara had led a life that had contained, in her eyes, a lot of injustice. As a result, Barbara had some muscular problems, affecting her right side and a great deal of anger. It seemed that this had been built from the many miscarriages of justice in her life.
“Why is life so unjust?” Barbara had asked.
I placed Barbara in a deep trance state and asked her to uncover a previous life that would assist her to understand the answer to this question.
Barbara entered her past and found herself in a medieval life. She was a young woman, tied to a tree, and her husband had been forcibly taken away by knights. She was powerless to do anything about this and although as her life went on she tried to help her husband, she found that whatever she did she couldn’t free him. She ended up being burnt at the stake by the church, condemned as a witch (a title given to those considered to be agitators, those that the authorities couldn’t control). She died in anger and frustration at the injustice of life.
She died with the question she had asked me: why is life so unjust?
I suggested that she leave that life and move to another life that might hold the key to the one she just left. Barbara then began to see a fat Roman merchant whom she immediately detested. The man was trader who traded woman; he sold them to the highest bidder. Barbara was horrified to realise that she was the fat Roman trader. This life had preceded her life as the disempowered woman fighting injustice. In this life, she (as the Roman trader) took away the choices of others; in her life as the young woman burned at the stake, she had her choices taken from her.
The life as the woman burned at the stake was more recent, therefore more deeply etched in her. Barbara didn’t trust men, she hated the church (especially the crucifix), she detested injustice and all of this blocked the right - the masculine - side of her body with anger.
These two lifetimes illustrate how Barbara was given the lesson “don’t interfere with another’s choice”. She had seen herself disempowering others and she had felt how it was to be disempowered. Notice how the life as the perpetrator preceded the life as the victim? It is so much easier for us to see ourselves as the victim and much more difficult to see ourselves as the perpetrator. All victims have been perpetrators somewhere along the line of lifetimes and in my experience, one life as the perpetrator can be followed by dozens of lives as victims. Victims can stay stuck as victims.
Barbara has now been helped to release the emotions from both lifetimes and will no longer be bound and controlled by them in her current life. She now is free to make healthier choices in her life and will no longer attract situations of injustice. She has an opportunity to step free of being a victim. She may even have a more balanced attitude to the church.
When you experience what may seem to be an injustice, remember: there is always a cosmic justice and all things are really in balance. It is just that you don’t see the bigger picture.
