Too many people are stuck in a cycle of negative thinking. "I know I'm sick, overweight, in a bad relationship, have a terrible job, am broke, etc., but it's my karma. Nothing I can do about it." That's usually followed by a shrug and a grimace. Nonsense! You can do something about karma right here and now. How?
1. Try to be "awake" as often as possible.
A lot of times we go through our days in a sort of half-trance and don't pay attention to what we're doing and saying. By living in the here and now as much as possible, you have a better chance of making more positive decisions, helping others when they need it, offering a word of praise or a compliment, and the like. How good do you feel when someone compliments you? You probably feel great, so why not start complimenting at least one person per day, if not more?
2. Correct any wrongs in your life that you're able to.
If you feel guilty about not spending enough time with your kids or partner, don't put it off any longer. No more excuses! Housework, your career, problems, bills and other things will still be there an hour from now so take time out to enjoy the ones who mean the most to you. If you need to lose weight or exercise...start now, not tomorrow, not Monday, not when you have more money. Now! If something happened years ago and you can't resolve it with this person, at least acknowledge what happened, forgive yourself, and send a mental prayer to this person asking for forgiveness or to at least let things go.
3. Volunteer your time.
I know, you're probably thinking, "Are you kidding? I barely have enough time to breathe let alone volunteer!" I'm not talking about spending hours and hours each week in a nursing home visiting the elderly. (Though if you have the time to do it, they would love it.) But there are small things you can do once a week or even once a month to help spread goodwill and positive energy. You could go through your home once a month and donate items to a local shelter, Goodwill or Salvation Army. If you sew, crochet or knit you could donate blankets to Project Linus (one of my favorite charities.) Or simply help out an elderly neighbor or relative once a week. You could even teach a child to cook. Anything that creates an aura of positive energy will help cleanse karma.
4. For the bigger karmic influences at work in your life.
Sit down and be honest with yourself. If you tend to attract the same negative type of relationship, money slips through your fingers, or you keep adding on the pounds, you need to face this demon head-on. It's not going to go away. Make a list of the negative things you do that keep adding to this karmic snowball then make another list of how you can correct it. Be realistic though; your karmic debt won't go away over night, so make small changes at first then tackle bigger ones over time. Who knows, you may have been carrying this karma around for a thousand years! Don't be too hard on yourself if you don't release it all within a week. Slow and steady wins the race. As long as you're moving forward on a positive path, you'll get past this karmic crud.
A couple more things to keep in mind is to take more chances, smile more often, grab opportunities as they arise, and have an optimistic outlook. Bad times don't last, but good people do!
Are you stuck, curious, worried or confused? No matter what your current situation is, it can always be better. Let me help you get to that place in life where you can breathe a sigh of relief and know that things are finally going your way. Or maybe just answer some questions that have been on your mind.
Light and blessings...
