What Beyonce’s “Lemonade” Teaches Us About Karma

So we’ve heard it and seen it and saw all the headlines and speculation about it, but what exactly can we take away from Beyonce’s new album Lemonade? Your trusty Bad Yogi Life Coach is here with some relationship guidance and karmic knowledge on celebrities and how they’re not exempt from negative energy and spiritual teachings we all encounter in this life.

As a relationship coach I want to say a giant thank you to Beyonce for the heavy yet creative reminder that no matter how much fame, how much money, how much success you have; no matter who you are; what you do or where you can fly to; if you don’t do the inner spiritual work for yourself, it will catch up with you.

It only gets harder, heavier and, well, a whole lot worse when all eyes are on you and you are working to heal, shift, feel, fix what has wounded you. What exactly am I referring to? Well even though there’s all sorts of speculation on whether or not Beyonce and Jay Z had marital trouble, we can still learn from what they’ve chosen to present us with. Yes, even if this is all just a way of using the rumors to profit for themselves (genius, I might add) we can still learn from it.

Do the inner work now. That’s the work on you. The whole loving, appreciating and understanding yourself stuff that us life coaches help you work through. Do it now and keep doing it. No one is excused from the inner work. No one! Not Beyonce or Jay Z. or Rachel Roy (poor Becky?). However, I don’t advise you do what Bey did because when you attack (even abstractly, like in your music), you sew some heavy karmic seeds that you’ll reap later on.

We all get hurt. We all get angry. We all have our hearts broken. But lashing out, attacking those who hurt us, is you not learning your own personal lessons. It’s you now projecting your wound back on them and sewing more karmic patterns with that wound which will only be harder and heavier to heal later down the road. That means when you attack, the lesson repeats.

But if you learn it, love it and let it go, you will always be guided towards something that better serves you!
