Karma is often called a bitch, but is it?
Karma is (at least in my definition) the reflection of who you are. It does not have to be based on this life, it could be from past lives (if you believe in reincarnation).
We have all heard the phrase, “Do onto others as you’d have done to you,” as well as, “You reap what you sew.” These pretty much portray Karma.
There are people in this world who do great things. There are people in this world who do evil things. According to the concept of karma, these people should be receiving wonderful reward or terrible vengeance depending on to which group they belong.
But karma is sometimes slow. We might see people who we think deserve swift justice and they seem to live a charmed life even though they do harm others. Is it enough for us to sit back and say karma will get them someday?
When we live our lives trying to be nice to everyone, to be good people, and yet we have struggles, it can seem as if karma is ignoring us.
My life mentor (better phrase for life coach) told me that we can release the bad karma. Imagine, if you will, that you lived a life before and you maybe did not live up to the high standards that you do now. Imagine you are carrying around bad karma because of some unconscious guilt for what you had done that has nothing to do with who you are now or how you treat others. You can release that karmic energy.
This is what I understood my life mentor to tell me. Simply say the following…
I release, from this life and any past life, the karmic energy that is holding me back. I release any tie to (state problem such as money, relationships, success…) and am opening myself up to good karma.
I think that is how to say it. I am willing to be corrected.
What do you believe, is karma real? Is it a friend or a foe?
