Positivity: How To Exit the Karmic Wheel of Life.




“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.”
― John O'Donohue

Karma is the Eastern philosophy that teaches us that everything we do will have consequences-- for better or for worse. Think of karma as a bank account. When you do something good it's like making a deposit; your balance is positive and you know you have good things that will gain interest and be returned.

On the other hand, when you do something not-so-good, it's like a withdrawal. You know you'll have less to look forward to, and if you withdraw too much you go into debt. When in debt you accumulate interest and someday, somehow, payment will come due.

Unlike bank creditors, you can't escape karma. It's programmed into the universe and one day you'll have to settle up on that karmic debt.



Don’t Fight It

One key to settling your karmic debt is to not fight it or try to get out of it. The whole purpose for karma in the universe is that it’s a failsafe system. Its cause and effect. Karma is learning from experience—there is no escaping it. The more you try to get away with, the deeper you end up in debt.
When you do things to pay back your karmic debts, pay them back with interest. Go above and beyond the call of duty.
Play it smart—when payback for your actions comes due, take it like a man (or a woman, if the case may be). Own up to your mistakes and hold yourself accountable.
Know that it’s not something you can get away with scot free. The sooner you accept that the sooner you’ll be able to put it all behind you.



Work With All Involved Parties

Sometimes karma is not something you have to work through alone. Many times we are in this life with soul mates—people we’ve known in another life. The reason many soul mates are tied together is because they have to settle some karma with each other. They have issues to resolve and lessons to learn from each other.

This is why, when you run into a soul mate, it’s a good idea to settle up that karmic debt up front. Don’t avoid the person, no matter how much pain the confrontation may cause. And don’t rush into the person’s arms and run up to the altar, either—while that still might be in your future, it might not be the main reason you’re brought together in this life.
You should talk with the person and try to come to an understanding of just what karma you have between you, and try to resolve it together by the most direct means possible.
At that point, you’ll find you can part ways in peace, or move forward with your relationship.




Pay Back With Interest

When you do things to pay back your karmic debts, pay them back with interest. Go above and beyond the call of duty. For example, let’s say you realize karma is coming to you from that shady business deal you made. You unethically (although legally) took something that someone else had earned. Now, you find your work is doubled or tripled— and the rewards are non-existent. You have to learn to earn your way honestly rather than be sneaky.
Okay, so do the work. Do it without complaining. Offer to do even more—help someone else out who is also struggling under an abundance of responsibilities. By paying back your karmic debt “with interest” you learn a better way to act and you cancel out some of your karmic debt.

Before you know it, you’ll find your accounts are balanced and you can move on in life.

Love And The Vibrational Match.

Not many people understand that the core of all relationships is spiritual. People say it all the time: “I love how this person makes me feel” or “this person makes me feel a certain way”. What they are not closely looking at is why.
We are all basically balls of energy running around in skin and bones. Inside of your body is your own unique energy. It’s somewhat like a signature, no two are alike. When it comes to meeting people and getting to know them, you may sense an attraction or repulsion. That is basically your energy indicating whether you are a match or not.
What a lot of people tend to do is feel good about a person and jump right into a situation with them. Your energy has different layers and sometimes it’s not always evident until you start to go deeper. You start sharing your energy so quickly; you get enmeshed and then may find out that this person has energetic issues. You begin to realize that as you go deeper to their energetic core you do not match. There may be h…

Spirituality: Growth Rings. The Magical Lesson About Trees!

"These trees are magnificent.
But even more magnificent is the sublime and moving space between them,
as though with their growth it too increased.”
― Gaston Bachelard

I have an avid fascination with trees. My latest inner mantra is: Be like a Tree. Trees are just that; trees. They do not “think” about being a rock or a bird, or anything else. A tree is itself and it is a great lesson for us. Like a tree, we should just BE.
There is another lesson we can learn from trees, but it will take you down a more scientific path. Have you ever looked at a tree that has been cut down and sawed in half and looked at the rings in the trunk of the tree? Those rings are called growth rings and dendrochronology is the scientific method of dating these rings. It is fascinating way to study the tree and how it has grown and how it has been affected by the environment over time. We can learn a lot from this process and apply it to our lives.


Every single thing in this universe has a starting po…
