Hi.
I've been working for five years with this wicked evil lady, and recently she axed me from my job.
Now she even didnt pay me for 2weeks I'm entitled to, plus she's spreading word to her friends and family to not hire me. She's EVIL! So I'm asking how to get prayers for a new well paid job, close to home with a well established nice family, as I am a caregiver in San Francisco, Cal.
I dont know what to do, as I am out of my mind in disbelief. Please help!!!! Buddha!

Thank You!

Hello Irexa -

If your former employer did something illegal, then pursue that legally. If she fired you and is actively talking badly about you, then that is probably illegal.

Beyond the legalities, may you quickly forgive her. And may you quickly find work that is nurturing and useful for you and others.

OM TARE TUTARE TURE SOHA

Your situation does sound very frustrating and worrying, indeed!

The best way to get the blessings of the Three Jewels of Buddhism is to practice Buddhism. I would imagine that there are many Buddhist centers in San Francisco. Why don't you go visit some?

Buddhist sanghas are often full of kind, intelligent, and generous people. You might make some important connections there.

May the Three Jewels help you find a new job and protect you from harm! :namaste:

Rather than a new job I pray for you to be free of suffering. Perhaps all of this misery moves you forward along your path toward that, who am I to say?

I used Green Tara's mantra to help me get a job, it's worked great for two consecutive summers. I definitely suggest this to you Irexa!
