Oh, Karma. My Karma.
Each and every one of you is a magnificent powerful manifestor. Yes you are an extremely talented creator of your own life events. Day to day you create within the light activated ball of energy that is you. You created your relationships, your home, you even selected the family you were born into. What an outstanding job you did and continue to do every moment.
Now here we all are on this interesting earth plane experience. Do any of you feel that time has changed, that it is moving faster and faster? It seems to me the first day of any given month arrives and then suddenly the month has slipped away. Yes, it does feel as if time has sped by and nearly disappeared while we were keeping busy handling the events of daily life.
As I view it, the interesting part of this apparently fast-moving time event we are experiencing is that we are also treated to or gifted with nearly instantaneous Karmic returns. Yes, that is what I said, very nearly instantaneous Karmic returns. Now how does that make you feel? A little apprehensive perhaps?
Many of us think of Karma as being negative but of course it can be either negative or positive. What is always true however, is that what we send out comes right back to us although in a somewhat different form or appearance and most likely from an apparently different source.
The energy we exert always creates some sort of matching effect. When we put strong energy into anything it carries more power than we may believe or intend. Perhaps in a moment of anger or confusion we say some regrettable thing and then believe it is over and done. But of course it isn’t. That energy has made a pattern and it is connected to us. It has gone out into the ethers to create for us.
Words, thoughts, actions, emotions create our fully formed patterns! All of these are continually working to create our future moments. The emotions that we attach to our thoughts, words and actions act as a powerful fuel increasing the intensity of the energy patterns we make.
Now what is instant Karma? If you go grocery shopping for a neighbor who has been sick and confined to the house for nearly two weeks, you may find that an hour or two later a friend is knocking at your door offering free tickets and a car ride to the fair. It does seem to bounce back that quickly.
Although if instead of doing a kind favor for someone you forcefully kick the neighbor’s dog which you found upending your favorite flowers. The resulting “return” might be just as quick. As you finish your own grocery shopping, you begin loading packages into your car and discover that some passerby has decided your car needed a little more design etched on the driver’s side with his nice sharp key.
Most of the time of course we have no idea which energy it was that we put forth which was ultimately responsible for bringing in the corresponding event. Of course it occasionally might be connected to what are past life “carry-overs”, those things we did in a former life that created a karmic debt or lesson.
Regardless of what we are experiencing today, if our desire is for a joyous spirit filled life, it would seem each of us is burdened with the task of watching our words, our thoughts, our emotions and naturally our actions. It is a huge task. It would appear to require us to be present continually in every now moment. That ever present now moment is where our power to create our highest and best desires is available for our use. Now is when we can make positive changes.
It seems to me that emotions present one of our heaviest and most powerful energies to watch. Why would I say that? Because emotions are a highly combustible fuel when added to our thoughts, fears, actions or worries. When we are upset over someone or something we tend to mentally dwell on it over and over again. Imagining the worst and adding more and more “what if this” and “what if that” and “they shouldn’t have”. It becomes so monstrous that the memory, the rehash is not even near the original force but many times more intense. We actually send out multiple energy patterns of our discontent bringing the same kind of experiences into our lives over and over again.
I have an idea that might make this work of being aware a little more interesting and perhaps less stressful. You know that your words, thoughts, actions and feelings are made of energy. Further, you believe that the energy of all that you are producing cannot be seen. But suppose you decided that when you spoke or thought, the energy of those words and ideas painted a detailed picture that carried sound and color. Suppose your energy filled feelings were like a miniature movie or cartoon which was being widely distributed throughout the universe. Would this make you think twice about the content?
Suppose that your distressed actions created a movie complete with intensifying music, building to a crescendo, and of course panoramic shots of the entire event. Would you consider a bit more seriously before creating an unpleasant scenario?
Now what if the difficulty is a memory from a long time past? Each time the memory arrives you add some more distressed energy to it. Yes it is only the past but each time you entertain it, it seems to gain momentum and more bad feelings.
I have many times practiced a tweaking procedure with my own unpleasant memories. In other words every time the old thoughts would arise, I would begin changing the mental movie a little at a time. If it was an argument I would see it more of a calm discussion with all parties being quite reasonable. Every time the old memory would reappear I would adjust it even further until there was no way it could cause me to add any additional angst to it.
That method always worked for me without bothering any of the other people who were actually involved. And if in the energetic sense the others felt some relief as well, all the better!
Another way to approach the bitter old memory problem is with a certain kind of writing. The writing is not mailed or given to anyone it is again strictly for your personal comfort.
First you address the way you felt at the time of the situation. Spell out all of your feelings, arguments and ideas from your point of view on paper. Then when you feel complete, imagine the other person in a totally calm and rational mood (even if you have never experienced them in that way). Now seeing them in that way, allow their words to be put on the paper.
Do this writing that comes through them without second guessing anything that they might say, just write what they might be feeling in that kind and gentle state of mind. Chances are when you write their views from that vantage point you will begin seeing some surprising possibilities and gain emotional calm yourself.
If you still have something you need to say, write that and again allow them in their most reasonable countenance to respond. It can be most cathartic and many times will allow you to release the whole affair without a second thought.
All of these exercises for improving our personal energy and the resultant experiences are intended to free us to be happy and to really enjoy our lives. Our overall health physical, mental, emotional and yes spiritual as well depends on our ability to love ourselves and others enough to be free of any harsh ideas or judgments. Create well my friends! The power is yours.
