The topic of Karma is related to your current Soul state of growth in this third dimension of Earth. The personal balance that we accumulate in one’s debit and credit bank has a lot to do with which area you are destined to grow the most, and the area where your Karma is focused.
The Karma in America is so different to that in other parts of the world. If you live in South Africa, most of your Karma would be related to actions of physical survival and the kind of race relationships that are developed between people.
The Karma of self in America is often a focus on a lack of career and relationships, where the biggest pain suffered is rejection. Therefore, if this is the crossroads that you’ve arrived at during your spiritual evolutionary journey in this dimension, then obviously you have overcome most of the physical and painful Karma that other people and nations are intimately involved in. This is the painful Karma of violent war, and Karma of obtaining basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing.
Until you have resolved and fulfilled your Karma, you will continue to reincarnate into sequential lifetimes on Earth. Neither God nor the Lords of Karma bestow suffering upon you during these lives. Only you decide what is needed to learn during your earthly sojourn. For each life experience you seek out other souls, often with shared histories, and always with karmic configurations matching your needs.
Whenever you act with wrongful intention you create Karma. This involves such actions which are considered to be connected with thoughts, emotions, words and deeds, together with the motive intent and desire behind each.
Disharmonious acts must be balanced in the future, either during this life or in a future lifetime beyond this one.You return lifetime after lifetime to test yourself to see if you have learned your lesson. Until you can go through an entire lifetime with total involvement and no disharmonious attachment what so ever, you will continue to reincarnate. In other words, when you can live a life of perfect harmony, liberation will follow, which is quite difficult, in being human.
During one’s life in this dimension a few mistakes can occur due to being vulnerable. Until you discover the importance of being spiritual without obsession, you will continue to make and experience the wrong choices. When we incarnate here on Earth, most humans (which is 99.9% of us) enter into life here with debts and credits from experiences, actions, thoughts, words and events from past lives (unless you are a Bodhisattva having virtually Karma free energy, who comes here to just teach, share and help others evolve). There are those out there who like to believe that they are pure, clean, clear and perfect beings. And yet things like car accidents happen to them. Or their pets get killed, they get rejected in relationships or they lose friends or family.
People ask, “Why me?? Why am I going through this pain? I’m a good person, I don’t deserve this.
You have to remember that through the course of history of Earth there has been a lot of pain, a lot of hurt feelings, a lot of murdering, violence, war, death. Many of you out there may have been warriors if not all of you at one time or other. You could have been criminals, pirates, maybe rapists, arsonists; a lot of you were thieves.
Karma and relationships
We let materialistic desires, such as the bodies of other people, create a sexual attraction or obsession for love and relationships. This is a major area where we can get in trouble karmically speaking, where we can create this need to have this one special person when really everyone in the world, spiritually speaking, is a reflection of your own self. But we like to focus on this one person, and if we don’t have this person, we are apt to hurt our self, hurt them, or do something to create a negative karmic energy that one day we will have to pay back.
Any painful experience that may happen concerning money, love, romance, sex, friends, goals, family, and career is a karmic pay back.
When people ask if they have Karma with their girlfriend, or with their wife, it is really a Karma with oneself. Others act only as a catalyzer, to stimulate the karmic experience that comes back from the past, to form an event in which you should generate as a clear picture of what you must absolve. Unfortunately, many people hang on to bad relationships and refuse to identify them as a payback Karma to be processed and let go of; they just won’t let go. In reality, it’s like hanging onto a monster such as Frankenstein, as he drags you down the hall.
Certain individuals might be the reincarnation of a mass murderer, a dictator-someone like Hitler or Stalin. Everyone’s actions are tied to their own personal karmic banks, even though we are connected with family Karma, group Karma, national Karma, and world Karma. The starting point is learning to live at peace and harmony with yourself. One of the ways to identify your Karma is to recognize those areas where you can get hurt, and where you are vulnerable.
Relationships are one of the more significant areas of Karma. One day you have the horns on and find yourself on the hunt. You try charming someone into your bedroom and your motive, ways and means are not very sound, so a negative force is set up a where someday you might be set up or used, as the object of some affection. This is the reversal or aligned instigation on that event. An aligned instigation occurs not from a directly related event, but an accumulation of events that build up over many lifetimes, and which are not processed. Suppose you are aggressive about seduction, and actually attack someone, or even rape them, which could be from a previous life. Then one day you will be put into a situation where you will have to pay that Karma off. Maybe walking down a lonely alley, late one night, with a tight red dress on and you definitely magnify that karmic energy that comes back to you.
People think that Karma doesn’t seem quite fair, because in this lifetime a lot of us seem to start off good, we think we’re doing a good job, we’re feeling fine. Then out of nowhere, out of left field, we seem to get hit with a sledge hammer such as a severe auto accident, a severe health crisis, a heavy relationship, a family or marriage crisis. And every time you have to look at that situation as some kind of karmic experience that needs to be absolved, processed and let go of, that you need to bounce back from.
The main way to absolve Karma is to make a peace with yourself, and try to be the least selfish and obsessed as possible. Try to retain a spiritual priority in your life, recognizing the God-force in yourself and in others and respecting this. Meditation is the best way to absolve Karma, no matter what kind of Karma you may have. By taking up meditation and even chanting, you can form a relationship with your higher self, this allows you to process this karmic vibration without having to go through the pain or physical experience in itself.
Try not to be unethical or immoral in your quest for power, love, sex, money or whatever it is, because if you ever take advantage of other people, you accumulate negative karmic vibrations which must be later absolved for your Soul to evolve. The most evolved beings are those who have absolved their Karma. The most unevolved people are the ones stuck in pain ruts, agony, torture, and self destruction in their lives who don’t even understand Karma or refuse to admit its power and its truth.
The body is the temple of the Soul; it is a vehicle, rather like a car. The body is a Karma machine; it creates Karma or it absolves it. When it absolves Karma its because it dematerializes for a while, and emphasizes the spiritual. It will either go to bed and rest, or meditate and put into perspective, at a higher level, the karmic situations. In so doing, these situations are pieced together, absolved and let go. Let go of things that you’re being selfish with. It could be money, career, or love.
People get themselves in trouble. They keep being negative, worrying. If you don’t start doing good things, and start taking care of the Spirit, then there’s no way to absolve Karma.
When people compound too much negative Karma-not absolving and processing enough Karma, they end up in institutions. These institutions may be a mental institution, a penal institution, or the hospital. This is the kind of effect that occurs when a karmic overload is so serious and so negative. Imagine the poor souls that are lost and are locked up in cells, behind closed doors and in hospitals with tubes in them, going through surgeries and pain everyday.
There are unfortunately mistakes made in our system, as there is probably one out of a thousand individuals that will end up in the hospital, jail or mental institution. And they really don’t belong there, but for some reason they’re there. Sometimes they are there as a teacher. Sometimes they have a function or a role there, to help the people who are already in the institution.
Certain factors before birth create the choice of parents, body, sex, home, city and culture that you will live in. This may sometimes be by divine grace, or individual choice because of past life patterns and events. The experiences and choices available during life create certain probabilities for events to occur in order to attain optimal Soul growth.
Some days are wonderful and you feel great; no one can bother you, everything is fine. Other days, it’s hard getting out of bed in the morning; you don’t want to face several people, you don’t even want to call certain supposed friends.
Powerful karmic situations in our lives confronting ourselves with those things in our lives that we have created, that produce tremendous pain and suffering or discomfort.
To Uncreate it you can or change it or Change your attitude about it. Or you can make new choices.
Make a deal with yourself, or with others as peacefully as possible to process your relationships and your life. Stop blaming others, yourself. The mess is there so what’s done is done, when the opportunity comes make a different choice.
Learn from your experiences and try not to repeat your messes.
The way to have Soul growth-to absolve Karma is opening yourself to your Spirit guides and being aware of higher self.
Therefore, if the situation that you are in is painful, and too uncomfortable, you need to process it or somehow get out of it.
