Let’s talk about karma and your soul. So many of my clients have asked about karma over the years, that I thought it would be helpful to answer some of my most frequently asked questions on the topic.
Every soul on the planet is working through some kind of karma. Whether you were the perpetrator or the victim, it’s inevitable that you’ll have experienced traumatic past life events that created karma. In this life your soul will seek to heal from the consequences of those actions.
There’s some confusion about the purpose of karma. I’m sure you’ve heard more than once that phrase, “Karma’s a *@%!#” The truth is, karma is not a punishment. There’s no universal team of avengers out to beat you up for something you might have done 300 years ago.
Karma is simply the universe seeking balance, and an opportunity for the soul to achieve profound spiritual growth by healing the events of the past. Karma and your soul are inseparable!
In my latest video, I answer the questions:
- What is karma?
- Why does it matter?
- People think of karma as a punishment. Is it?
- How can I tell if I’m working through karma?
- Is it a problem if I don’t balance karma in this lifetime?
- How can I avoid incurring karma?
- How can I tell if I’m the victim or the perpetrator of a karmic action, and does it matter?
I hope this video helps to give you some insights into karma and your soul.
Does it feel like you might be working through some karma in this lifetime? I’d love to hear from you!
Karma is a kind of universal balancing act, if you like. It’s a way that souls take events from the past, and resolve them sometime in the future. Maybe a future lifetime.
For something to be karmic, it has to have taken you or someone else off their life plan. Karma’s big. For something to be karmic, it has to be a serious consequence in a previous lifetime.
The reason karma matters is that we’re all working on karma. Whether we know it or not. We’re all trying to balance the effects of previous lifetimes in this.
Well I’m very pleased to say that karma is not punishment. In fact, there is no universal punishment. But it is a way of seeing the other side of the coin. Sometimes, if you’ve been the perpetrator, you may want to see what it’s like to be subject to whatever experience it was that you put somebody else through in the past.
The reason that you can tell if you’re working through karma, I think the main thing you’ll notice is certain themes come up in your life. And there are signs that you have something to work through.
If you don’t balance karma in this lifetime, you’ll do it in another. It’s not essential. It’s not mandatory to get all your karma ducks in a row, and get everything worked through in this life. It’s more important that you recognize when there is karma. And do your level best to work through it.
The way to avoid incurring karma is to simply live a good life. To be good to other people. Treat yourself well, treat others well. And avoid obvious things like don’t take a life, don’t lie, be trustworthy, be good to other people.
There are past lives where you’ve been a victim of circumstances that are karmic. You’re looking to balance that. An example would be that if you’ve been tortured, you migh want to help Amnesty International. Help victims of torture in this life.
But at the same time, you could have been a perpetrator. And you’ll still be drawn to help victims of torture in this life. And you can’t tell the difference. You literally don’t know. They look the same.
The main thing is that if you feel impelled to help people, in any way, then follow that. Because it’s likely you’re healing something in yourself.
Beautifully and simply expressed. Thank you, Ainslie. I’m going to memorize this so that when others ask me, I’m going to quote you!
Thank you Kate, happy to help!
Thank you so much for clearly defining Karma. So many people use it as a revenge-type statement but the word balance makes it clear. Could I ask you to speak to spirit and provide more about the next level of conciousness we are moving into and what to expect? I’ve only recently heard about this and have been combing YouTube for enlightenment on this subject. Thank you for all that you do.
Thank you, Kelli. I describe the upcoming transformation in my book, appropriately called The Transformation.
