“Karma is the record of services. Karma is the term used in Buddhist teaching. Taoists use the term ‘te’, Christians use the term “deed.” Many other spiritual beings use the term “virtue.” Karma, te, deed, and virtue are the same thing but in different words. To understand karma is to understand all of these words.” ~ ZHI GANG SHA, The Power of Soul
People often think that doing good deeds will bring them good karma, and bad karma is something that has to be avoided at all cost. Karma works on the simple rule that every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind. If you contribute to the cause, you will feel the effect and experience the consequences of your actions.
While Karmic debts are believed to be accumulating from a past life and is yet to be settled in this life. During the course of life, karmic debt can be created in ignorance, knowledge, accident or deliberately. This debt is consequential and would have to be redeemed sooner or later.
Sometimes, our actions receive a reaction immediately, that is instant Karma. This implies that the energies have balanced themselves. But at other times, the reaction for the action is missing. This implies that the repercussions of this action would reflect later in the same lifetime or in the next or after death.
This understanding gives rise to the theory of reincarnation. As the residual karma or karmic debt of the previous lifetime needs to be met in our current life, or there will be rebirth. Escaping the birth and death cycle is Moksha or Nirvana. Our birth, as described, is a consequence of our karma in previous lifetimes and we have a new chance to balance out our karmic baggage.
The work of psychiatrist Dr Ian Stevenson, provided scientific proof that reincarnation is real. He said that memories and physical injuries can be transferred from one lifetime to another, and that emotions, thoughts, injuries in the form of birth marks, phobias, are all a consequence of past lives.
Stevenson’s work called, ‘Reincarnation and Biology’ contained 225 case reports of children who remembered previous lives and who also had physical anomalies that matched those previous lives, details that could in some cases be confirmed by the dead person’s autopsy record and photos.
Human being in his desire to acquire a clean slate, tries to balance out the bad karma by performing good karma. But in his ignorance, he forgets to acknowledge the ‘repayable’ nature of Karma. Whether good or bad, it would have to be paid eventually. Furthermore, when a deed is carried out with an intention or expectation to create good karma and get rewards, the benefit of the same is decreased automatically.
Expectation of repayment is a dangerous emotion, as when the expectation is not fulfilled it would create dissatisfaction, unhappiness and greed. Like for example, a lover might feel s/he has been a higher contributor in a relationship and the other person is not acknowledging it. This only leaves them dissatisfied and unhappy. If we come to closure with our relationships, we do not create additional karma. When we forgive ourselves, we actually erase karma.
Karmic Healing is the knife that breaks the ties of the previous karma and frees the soul from the cycle of life and death. When we become fully aware of our actions, behaviors, thoughts and perceptions, we can then use our free will to consciously create a different path of karma.
By aligning our heart, mind and body, we make decisions with our whole being, thereby avoiding residual karma. One can use Reiki, Crystal Healing, Shamanic Healing, Karma Quotient healing to empower oneself spiritually.
The healing power will cut the ropes of binding karma that plants the seeds for the next life. Negative karma on the other hand is either removed or converted to positive. A constant effort of channeling the light can lead to a positive change in present life and gradual reduction of karmic debt.
An important thing to remember is that each one of us is responsible for our actions, and the best way to use karmic law is to become aware of the choices we are making in every moment. Although often, our choices are a result of our conditioning, people and our surroundings.
But once we become more aware of our choices, we will make choices that are spontaneously correct — both for you and the people around you.
