Most of you have probably heard of Karma, which basically means that what you give out, at some point you will get the same back. This being said, you need to give some attention to what you are giving out in terms of thoughts, words, feelings, and actions. It is a universal law that you reap what you sow and for this reason you are a reflection of your predominant thoughts, beliefs, words, and actions.
You are what you think and you get what you think about. How about giving out what you most want to get back? Do you want more love? Give out an abundance of love. Do you want more people to care about you? Spend more time showing people that you care. Like attracts like. Whatever you want in your life put your focus on that and you will get more of the same.
You Can Have What You Want
I want you to know without a shadow of a doubt that you really can have what you want in life. Your desires can come true if they are realistic and you understand the principals involved in getting the things you want. The manifestation of your desires is not magic; it is based upon a number of principles.
First, instead of focusing on what you DON’T have or how terrible your life is now, I want you to focus all of your attention on what you DO want. Want more success? Love? Money? Health? Friends? Toys? Write it all down and spend time thinking about these things. Then I want you to think about how you can send out positive vibes concerning the things on your list. Do you want more money flowing into your life? Maintain a prosperity consciousness and at the same time, be sure that you sow into other people’s lives that are in need.
Do you want more success in your career? Take some time to mentor someone else looking to climb the ladder to success. Trying to meet a loving partner? Be loving toward everyone you meet. Entertain thoughts of love and compassion. Focus and put your attention on your desires.
Believe + Receive
Once you are focusing your attention on the things that you want and have made it clear to the universe, believe that you will certainly receive your desires. Maintain a state of gratitude and expectancy. Be on the lookout for the manifestation of your desires. Maybe you will get that promotion today or your loving partner will bump into you at the gym. It is important to first believe and then you will receive.
It Is Not All About You
It is wonderful to have desires and I resonate with joy when people receive them, but it is not all about you. Understand that as you give out and sow into others, they are receiving some sort of value as well. When you give $50 to the youth group mission team, you are adding value to other people’s lives and you will certainly receive good back because of this. It really is a win-win situation.
Mother Teresa was probably one of the most self-less women in history and her love and compassion served in two ways. One, those that she cared for and loved unconditionally received an incredible blessing and two, the love and gratitude she received from those she served blessed her socks off. She gave out what she most wanted to get: unconditional love. She understood spiritual principles and lived a beautiful life of service.
What is it that you most want to get back in life? I want you to think about this for a few minutes and jot down what comes to mind. Then I want you to think about how you can give out those exact things you want and DO IT. I want you to change the way you think about your desires and believe that you can have what you want. Send out positive thoughts like a boomerang into the universe and watch the positive things that boomerang attracts before it comes back to you. Shoot for the stars!

There is always a reaction to any action; nothing goes unnoticed. Many would call this balancing of energy “karma.” Colloquially, it might be expressed as, “what goes around, comes around.” The golden rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is another expression of this action-reaction concept. Another way to describe this law of the universe is, as Elizabeth Haich writes in her book, Initiations: “When we strike our hand against a wall, the wall strikes back without intending to! It is not the wall, which really strikes back, but our own blow bounces back. In any case, whatever we hit always gives back the same blow we gave it.”
Karma is not about punishment; it is about energy. Remember, every thought, word, and action consists of energy. You activate this energy. Think of Newton’s third law of energy: For every action there is an equal reaction.
If you think, speak, and act negatively, this same energy will come back to you. The same holds true if you think, speak, or act positively out of love. The more you create a positive, loving state of energy, the more you will experience this in return.
Karma is a field of energy. It surrounds individuals and seeks balance. People who see energy or auras know that energy,generated from within the body, is evident around the person and extends into the aural field.
During the process of one of my soul retrieval journeys, I came across something that appeared as a dark, looming cloud of energy surrounding my client. I asked my spirit helpers about this energy, and they informed me that it was karma, which had accumulated around this particular person. I shuddered because it looked awful and had the feel of anger and hatred. I immediately thought that we needed to leave this negative energy alone. I believed that others’ karma should not be interfered with because it was part of their destiny. (I had always heard that karma, as described in books and by other people, was something a person was stuck with and had to live out.) My spirit helpers said to me, “Jan, are you here to follow your human rules, or are you here to do a healing?”
I was dumbfounded. Never did I expect a comment like that from my spirit helpers. I realize now that this journey was an important turning point in my learning. The spirits used this journey to help me understand that “punishment” is a human concept. The spirits never inflict punishment; they love all beings unconditionally. My spirit helpers taught me repeatedly that all karma is healed through love, as love instantaneously heals and balances all energies.
Loving yourself and loving others will create change in the most adverse situations. Remember, there is no experience that is less or more important than another; there is no lifetime better or worse than another. Each life circumstance comes with its own set of challenges and experiences, and all are part of the exquisite whole.
Karma is not hung on you like a scarlet letter; however, you do build an energy around you. This energy accumulates and is always in motion, as it tries to maintain balance with other energies. Sometimes this balancing is quick; sometimes it will take years; sometimes it flows into other lifetimes, but it will balance. If ever you question why certain things are happening to you, take
some time to look at what you are doing and thinking.
You can change your life by changing your thoughts, your words, and your actions. At any time, you may choose the path of enlightenment. All negative life situations, all fear, can be balanced and reversed through love. You can choose to open the heart, forgive, let go, and be happy. No matter what your past, love heals. Even in situations where you find no reasonable explanation
for why things happen the way they do, your life can change.
We are not stuck with disastrous lives or having to live out a particular karma if we choose to change our thinking away from fear and judgments. So much of our thinking keeps unfortunate things in motion. If you are experiencing, or have experienced, many struggles and hardships in your lifetime, you can be assured you are not being punished or held in an unmerciful way by some
judgmental God. You can also be assured that there is a bigger picture being played out with your life than that represented by current circumstances. There is a divine plan designed uniquely for you that is based in unconditional love.
Judgments prevent you from seeing life from a holistic view, and they keep you caught in your pain. The same holds true for unforgiveness. The failure to forgive imposes chains on the heart of the unforgiving. Forgiving is always for self. It clears the energy field instantaneously. Try it. You will see what I mean. When one forgives another, there is a physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom for both the giver and receiver. Forgiveness, like love, heals two souls at once.
So let me recap. The soul is vast, it is immortal, and it adheres to no timeline. Each lifetime could be represented like an individual word on a page of an enormously long novel. Life creates the story, filled with romance and loneliness, gain and loss, terror and glee, destruction and creativity, betrayal and glory, wealth and poverty, royalty and destitution. All facets of life are experienced wholly, and each lifetime is valuable. Everything necessary to create wholeness for your soul is present. Each lifetime follows the laws of the universe creating, co-creating, accumulating, being.

Karma. It’s a term that gets thrown around a lot these days and many of us have a good idea about what it is…or do we?
‘Karma’ is a Sanskrit word with several layers of translation- some being ‘wheel’, ‘balance’ and ‘debt’. The Hindu faithful use the word Karma to denote both shallow and deep aspects of an individual soul’s journey from this life into the next based on spiritual debt and needed experiences. Karma is the ‘baggage’ we have as spirit souls- it is both what we are here in this life to deal with and what we take with us to the next. Whatever Karma you have right now defines where you’ve been- and the Karma you have when you die defines where you’re headed.
Let’s clear up from the get go that ‘good Karma’ is not good at all. Having ‘good Karma’ will require a soul to take rebirth in order to burn it off. If we want complete transcendence- zero Karma is the way to go! Good Karma and good living are two different things. We annihilate bad Karma by being good (charity, selfless service, prayer, etc.), and gain bad karma by being naughty (hate, violence, anger, envy, malice, lies, etc.).
Let’s look at this another way…
Let’s say someone is born into a socialite family- wants for nothing, gets a great education, has excellent health, general good luck, etc. We can assume (although not absolutely define for certain) that in a past life, this person did compassionate and selfless works that led them to a positive/good Karmic load in this life. If all of this goes to their head- the good turns sour and next time around they get just about the opposite to learn and KNOW the lessons.
Now, if we look at someone who experiences about the opposite in life- poverty, ill health, bad luck; we can safely assume that in a past life they may have abused abundance, cosmic laws or their own life journey. It happens and we’re ALL guilty of acting against our bigger nature. How do I know that? because we’re all here!
Sometimes Karma can seem like such a harsh judgment! Who decides when our actions are negative or positive? Who hands out the ruling and defines how our next lifetime will roll so that we learn and experience all that we need to rectify toxic behaviors/beliefs and get closer to truth?
All of our soul baggage is like a colored filter, and our soul is like a bright light. What we project- we attract. If we have acted against the self in a past life- or last week for that matter, a filter is created over the light of the soul and as the light shines through it- circumstances resonant with that behavior come our way… in a big way. We shine forth on a subtle spiritual level exactly who we are- and the cosmos responds to that light.
If we are impatient- we shine impatience on the subtle level and thus attract situations that will challenge and thus heal our impatience. You know, you only get stuck in traffic when you are an impatient person! Once you master patience- there’s no need to be stuck in traffic so it doesn’t happen anymore.
The goal of understanding Karma, or spiritual debt as I call it outside the Hindu specifics of the term- is so we can understand the why’s and how’s of life.
Nothing is chance- everything, and I mean EVERYTHING we experience comes to us for the sole purpose of enlightening, healing and empowering us. That’s every blissful love affair, every stubbed toe, every short paycheck and every blessing we receive. Spiritual debt is a sort of barometer about our journey and helps us understand the bigger picture. If we are constantly attracting a similar situation- it’s a big clue we need to look into that and figure out what’s up so we can be more attentive to receiving the healing opportunities coming our way. If something comes over and over again- it’s because we’re not getting it. Time to take inventory, get straight in the heart and open up to be guided down the sometimes hard healing path that always leads to bliss beyond imagination. Recurring issues are also a great time to contact your psychic spiritual adviser for another view into the journey.
In Egyptian mythology- at death, the heart of the deceased is weighed on a scale opposite an ostrich feather. If the heart weighs more than the feather, it gets eaten by a big scary monster. If it weighs less- it goes to paradise. What’s being said here? Heaven is a place of NO BAGGAGE! The heart that weighs less than a feather is the heart with no baggage and no attachment to false things. This is a heart who has lived life in accords with cosmic law and personal journey and who has walked out of life with no deep obsessions/addictions to material things, and no sins of the self weighing on them. It’s a heart light enough to float to the unseen above!
In my revelation, I have experienced that at death- the only judgment is between the soul and a mirror. In the soul-state that exists when we are not attached to the psychical body and the material world- great clarity and wisdom is present. WE define how we could have done better, how we might have avoided lessons or healing that tried and tried to manifest in our lives, how we did good, etc. We decide what’s needed- and in that space it’s always the truth because it’s OUR truth.
This view differs from many western beliefs as well as the beliefs of many Hindu sects who house the term ‘Karma’, but coming to this realization we are forced to take total accountability for our spiritual actions and our path. The ‘Blame God’ game comes to a quick end and nothing could be better for a soul!
Each of us is walking our own wheel of life- experiencing different things to help us know it all. Exploring who we are, who everyone else is and who the Divine is. Learning by doing, loving by experiencing, respecting by seeing and knowing by being. Simply following the intuitive cosmic laws that are inscribed in each of our hearts will ensure that we walk the spiral journey with right action and progress in our great path of healing and bliss.
Peace & Great Blessings on the path of BECOMING!
