The 12 Wonderful Laws Of Karma

What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it. This law of cause and effect is not punishment, but is wholly for the sake of education or learning. A person may not escape the consequences of his actions, but he will suffer only if he himself has made the conditions ripe for his suffering. If he were to continue acting in such a way that the retribution cannot come about, because the conditions are not appropriate, then he may postpone the fruition of his karma. If he can suspend it until he is in the spirit world, then he may work at this particular karma in this intermission between death and next life. Or he may wait until another life in which he is more developed so that he can gleaned the educational value of this retribution. Conversely, his life could be so derelict that the blessings due to him cannot fructify until a later date or a subsequent life. All these fall into the category of suspension of karma to a more propitious period or life.


Ignorance of the law is no excuse” whether the laws are man-made or universal. To stop being afraid and to start being empowered in the worlds of karma and reincarnation, here is what you need to know about karmic laws.
The Law of Karma is the Buddhist and Hindu version of the Golden Rule, basically, that what you do to others will return and be done to you. It’s stated in similar terms in almost every religion in the world.
In the East, the law reads (in translation):
For every event that occurs, another event will follow that was caused by the first, and the second event will be pleasant or unpleasant due to and indirect relation to its cause”
The belief teaches that the person who takes action is responsible for that action, if not in this lifetime, then in future lives. In effect, what you did in your past lives comes forward to your present life and determines the events you experience now.
Buddhism takes these beliefs much deeper, delving into intention andthought as well as spoken words and action. With everything we feel, say, or do, we make choices. Whatever you choose to do produce  ripples that travel through time. Those choices are our karma, good or bad.
Instead of seeing bad karma as punishment for actions in your past lives, you can better understand it as a lesson toward living in Oneness with all people and things. The Law of Karma – as simple as: You reap what you sow – extends from your past lives into your future lives. How you apply it in your present life determines your results.
1: LAW OF NEUTRALITY – Just as the “Law of Gravity” always works to pull things toward the Earth, these “Laws of Karma” apply to all equally, no exceptions. The universe is neutral: there are no favorite ones, there are no cursed ones, there are only divine beings created the Creator and all these divine beings are loved by Creator equally, deeply, and completely.
2: LAW OF AGREEMENT – The most terrible truth that anyone will ever learn while they are on Earth is… that they agreed to come here and to experience all that has, is, and will happen to them. The universe operates under this simple rule: all that happens is by prior agreement based on karmic justice between all the parties involved to balance past karma.
3: LAW OF LESSONS – We reincarnate to learn what is and is not like love. In the worlds of duality, we learn from experiencing polar opposites: “good-bad”, “problem-solution”, etc until we evolve into divine love, joy, and awareness. We walk the divine circle – where there is no saint without a past and no sinner without a future – until we learn our lessons.
4: LAW OF CAUSE & EFFECT – What you have done unto others in past lives or in this one (cause), weaves the karmic agreement of your present and future (effect). Consciously acting from loving kindness to yourself and others instantly reweaves the present and future karmic agreements into greater pathways of empowerment and unfoldment.
5: LAW OF BALANCE – The point of learning lessons is to achieve balance. Imbalances drive your personal cycle of reincarnation. “What you bring hate to, you reincarnate to” is how balance is achieved. For you can only truly understand a thing when you become that thing and cease to judge it, cherish unloving opinions, or harbor unrealistic expectations about it.
 6: LAW OF ATTRACTION – Your consistently repeated thoughts packed with your consistently felt emotions become magnetized and attract similar thoughts packed with emotions to manifest your desires into reality. Whatever thoughts and emotions you focus on the most – with the most intensity and the most time – whether intentionally or unintentionally, becomes your belief-karma. The more you invest in them with your focus, the stronger they become. Your belief-karma generates your thoughts, forms your attitudes, guides your actions, and creates your results.
7: LAW OF CONNECTION – You connect with the people, opportunities, and events necessary to manifest your desires if you allow, believe, and expect it will happen for you. Allowing means you open yourself to let manifestation flow to you by believing what you need to manifest your desires will come to you and by expecting if-when you take consistent and appropriate actions your desires will manifest into reality as you have asked.
8: LAW OF EXPANSION – Since everything in the universe is energy, the universe is always expanding from lower to higher vibrational states. Change and growth are inevitable because energy is always expanding. The universe expands through chaos, reorganization, and order in an endless cycle of change and growth to create continuous improvement.
9: LAW OF UNFOLDMENT
Your internal map of reality is always changing to reflect your personal state of learning and growth. Your map of reality is always being refined into greater levels of truth as your consciousness unfolds. Unfoldment is a gradual process so that you can learn life lessons at your own pace as you reincarnate through time.
10: LAW OF EMPOWERMENT – If you “let whatever happens be ok”, you are accepting the “default” pattern of karma. Empowerment comes from a conscious decision to take control of karma by accepting absolute and total responsibility for your life and by always consciously acting with loving kindness.
11: LAW OF ALL POSSIBILITIES – There is no end to the joy you can experience or to what you can create. For all the power to get what you want comes from within you. Every moment brings with it new possibilities and opportunities for action. Whatever you can dream, you can do, be, or have in the universe of all possibilities… this is your birthright as a divine being.
12: LAW OF LOVE – Karma begins and ends with love. Karma was created to propel you as Soul on a personal journey of reincarnation through the universe. Karma ends when you have perfected yourself in your ability to love unconditionally. The sole purpose of karma and reincarnation is to bring us all to a state of divine love, joy, and awareness.

16 Uncomfortable Feelings That Actually Tell You’re On The Right Path

Here are a few (less than desirable) feelings that may indicate you’re on the right path after all:

1. Feeling as though you are reliving your childhood struggles. You find that you’re seeing issues you struggled with as a kid reappear in your adult life, and while on the surface this may seem like a matter of not having overcome them, it really means you are becoming conscious of why you think and feel, so you can change it.

2. Feeling “lost,” or directionless. Feeling lost is actually a sign you’re becoming more present in your life – you’re living less within the narratives and ideas that you premeditated, and more in the moment at hand. Until you’re used to this, it will feel as though you’re off track (you aren’t).



3. “Left brain” fogginess. When you’re utilizing the right hemisphere more often (you’re becoming more intuitive, you’re dealing with emotions, you’re creating) sometimes it can seem as though “left brain” functions leave you feeling fuzzy. Things like focusing, organizing, remembering small details suddenly become difficult.

4. Having random influxes of irrational anger or sadness that intensify until you can’t ignore them anymore. When emotions erupt it’s usually because they’re “coming up” to be recognized, and our job is to learn to stop grappling with them or resisting them, and to simply become fully conscious of them (after that, we control them, not the opposite way around).


5. Experiencing unpredictable and scattered sleeping patterns. You’ll need to sleep a lot more or a lot less, you’ll wake up in the middle of the night because you can’t stop thinking about something, you find yourself full of energy or completely exhausted, and with little in-between.


6. A life-changing event is taking place, or just has. You suddenly having to move, getting divorced, losing a job, having a car break down, etc.


7. Having an intense need to be alone. You’re suddenly disenchanted with the idea of spending every weekend out socializing, and other people’s problems are draining you more than they are intriguing you. This means you’re re-calibrating.

8. Intense, vivid dreaming that you almost always remember in detail. If dreams are how your subconscious mind communicates with you (or projects an image of your experience) then yours is definitely trying to say something. You’re having dreams at an intensity that you’ve never experienced before.

9. Downsizing your friend group; feeling more and more uncomfortable around negative people. The thing about negative people is that they rarely realize they are negative, and because you feel uncomfortable saying anything (and you’re even more uncomfortable keeping that in your life) you’re ghosting a bit on old friends.

10. Feeling like the dreams you had for your life are collapsing. What you do not realize at this moment is that it is making way for a reality better than you could have thought of, one that’s more aligned with who you are, not who you thought you would be.

11. Feeling as though your worst enemy are your thoughts. You’re beginning to realize that your thoughts do create your experience, and it’s often not until we’re pushed to our wit’s end that we even try to take control of them – and that’s when we realize that we were in control all along.

12. Feeling unsure of who you really are. Your past illusions about who you ‘should’ be are dissolving. You feel unsure because it is uncertain! You’re in the process of evolving, and we don’t become uncertain when we change for the worse (we become angry and closed off). In other words: if what you’re experiencing is insecurity or uncertainty, it’s usually going to lead to something better.

13. Recognizing how far you still have to go. When you realize this, it’s because you can also see where you’re headed, it means you finally know where and who you want to be.


14. “Knowing” things you don’t want to know. Such as what someone is really feeling, or that a relationship isn’t going to last, or that you won’t be at your job much longer. A lot of “irrational” anxiety comes from subconsciously sensing something, yet not taking it seriously because it isn’t logical.

15. Having a radically intense desire to speak up for yourself. Becoming angry with how much you’ve let yourself be walked on, or how much you’ve let other people’s voices get into your head is a sign that you’re finally ready to stop listening, and love yourself by respecting yourself first.

16. Realizing you are the only person responsible for your life, and your happiness. This kind of emotional autonomy is terrifying, because it means that if you mess up, it’s all on you. At the same time, realizing it is the only way to be truly free. The risk is worth the reward on this one, always.
 

5 Simple Tips To Stop Overthinking Everything

Overthinking it Won’t Change Anything

Thinking and planning your life is normal and should be done by everyone…but what happens when we start obsessing over the little things or get in our head?
We start self sabotaging.
Overthinking and over analyzing situations can ruin not only our positive outlook, but even our ability to navigate a situation.
I would know…I struggle with overthinking everything!
I’ve found these 5 tips help me a lot to let go of that mental chatter…

1. Recognize not everything can be controlled.

Usually, we like to control nearly every aspect of our lives. It feels good to be in control. It makes us feel secure.
Over thinking or over analyzing is a form of trying to control a situation by coming to a solution or not failing.
But the real truth is that security and control are an illusion…and more importantly, no one that is respected or admired got where they are without failure.
So let go! Not everything can be solved, and you can’t always prevent failure.

2. Imagine yourself in the future.

Lots of little things in life can distract us from seeing the big picture. It’s so easy to get caught up in minor details.
If you’re over thinking something, then imagine yourself 3-5 weeks down the road…or even 1-2 years down the road.
Is that situation still just as important as it is now? This will help you figure out if something really is worth your time and energy.

3. Shift out of fear.

Fear is the ultimate tail spin. When you dwell on fear, suddenly everything starts to unravel and you get caught in a mental rut.
Regardless of whether or not your worst fear is realized, does it do you any good to dwell on it?
If it doesn’t happen then it doesn’t matter…if it does, there’s nothing you can do. Either way, it’s out of your hands. Let go!

4. Step out of the situation and get space.

Often when I’m stuck thinking about something, it’s because I’m so wrapped up in it I can’t see out of it.
But as soon as I take a step back and get distance, I can see that my mental space didn’t necessarily match the situation.
There is a saying I have always loved: “Environment is stronger than will.”
That’s why when you get some space from whatever’s going on, you can start to see the truth of it.

5. Do yoga.

Maybe it sounds weird, but I’ve found exercising and moving my body is one of the most effective ways to get out my head and into the present moment.
It almost forces you to be present…because you have to be focused on what you’re doing.
When you do yoga or even just exercise regularly, your ability to detach yourself from a situation is vastly improved, because you’re so focused on something else; it suddenly dawns on you that you can be outside that situation and survive.

10 Signs That You’ve Met Someone From Your Soul Group

Have you ever come across a person who you feel as though you’ve known “forever,” even if you’ve just met them?
Have you ever met a person who you immediately connect with, without knowing why?

 
Sometimes these people actually know what you’re going to say before you’ve said anything. Luna and I used to call this “freaky mind connections” because we’d often think and say the exact same thing at the exact same moment.
These people who we connect with on a deep heart level are part of what is known as our “Soul Family” or “Soul Group.”

 
If you want to know what kind of role your Soul Group will play in your life and how to recognize members of it, keep reading.



WHAT IS A SOUL GROUP?

A Soul Group is comprised of a single person or group of people that your Soul energetically resonates with on a mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual level at any given moment.

 
These people are members of the same “Spirit Family” as you and they share an intensely strong bond with you that transcends time and space itself. Intuitively, most people tend to describe this connection as sharing the same “frequency” or “vibration” because of the deep harmony felt among such people.

 
Such a deep and harmonious connection goes beyond sharing the same surface-based personality tastes, hobbies and opinions: it’s an intense magnetic and spiritual bond you will feel that is inexplicable to the mind.


There are a few ways to tell if you’ve met someone who resonates with you on a Soul level. Here are a few things you might notice:

1. YOUR EYE CONTACT IS DEEP AND ENGAGING

You’re not afraid to make eye contact with members of your Soul Family and it doesn’t feel awkward. When you make eye contact, there is something familiar that you both share, something comforting, something ancient. It’s almost as though when you make eye contact you’re tapping into a deeper truth that you both silently understand and share.

2. THEY WILL BE MORE SOUL-CENTRIC THAN EGO-CENTRIC

Members of your Soul Group will not be interested in ego-centered pursuits such as fame, status, money, and glory. Instead, they will be more soulful, more spiritually mature. For example, they might be interested in conscious living, meditation, healthy eating, yoga, helping the environment, and so forth.

3. YOU’RE MAGNETICALLY DRAWN TO THEM

For no apparent reason, members of your Soul Group will “pop out” to you like sore thumbs. You’ll be immediately drawn to them and their energy. Even if you lose touch with them, they will emerge in your life over and over again.


4. BOTH OF YOU SPEAK THE “SAME LANGUAGE”

When speaking, both of you share similar thoughts and insights, and you’re on the “same page” emotionally. It’s not uncommon for you to both repeat the same thoughts and words, as if you’re mirroring each other’s minds.

5. YOU FEEL AS THOUGH YOU’VE KNOWN THEM FOR YOUR ENTIRE LIFE

You’ve never felt so comfortable and understood by another person in your entire life. Deep down, your connection feels timeless. Even when you first met this person, you felt a strange sense of recognition and familiarity.

6. YOU ALWAYS FEEL ENERGIZED AROUND THEM

Whenever you spend time with a member of your Soul Tribe, you’ll feel energetically uplifted rather than drained.

7. THEY APPEAR IN YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU MOST NEED GUIDANCE

The moment you’re open to growing beyond your current layers of fear and limiting beliefs is the moment you’ll attract a member of your Soul Group.

8. HOURS TALKING WITH THEM FEELS LIKE MINUTES

Time is completely relative when you speak with someone from your Soul Group. You enjoy talking with them so much that time disappears very quickly.

9. THEY REFLECT YOUR BEST QUALITIES

Your Soul Group reflects your best qualities, but they will also challenge you to see and embrace your greatest flaws. Sometimes challenging you will including creating difficult circumstances for you to learn from, or being brutally honest with you (even if it hurts). Whatever the case, you can count on your Soul Group to help you authentically grow.

10. YOU SHARE SIMILAR LIFE EXPERIENCES

Themes such as abandonment, abuse, isolation, and other struggles will be shared between you and your Soul Family. Each life theme will be used as a basis for growth, advice, and mutual support.
