Karma can be witnessed by looking back on one’s own life and experiences, or by observing the lives of others and how karma affected them. If you are close with someone you can see their karma unfold if you’re paying attention. Sometimes we don’t see it until much later in life.
A less obvious kind of karma, which I have started to notice over this past year, relates to saying two simple words: thank you. Why is saying thank you so very difficult for some people? I have never understood it, until recently.
One of the most common reasons people don’t say thank you, is because they were never taught to do so as children. Usually we are taught these things early on. But some people are brought up in dysfunctional homes where there is the lack love, attention and connection between parent and child. Read the rest of this entry »
Karma is a very real thing. I know an older lady who firmly believes that she will never have to struggle coming in the door, whenever she comes home to her condo. She never has to set down any of her items to look for the right key to unlock the door and let herself in. There always seems to be someone there to let her in; people are usually going out as she is coming back in.
Amazingly, this appears to be true. I have never actually seen her having any trouble letting herself in, and it seems to be the case especially when she is bringing in groceries, or carrying a heavy load.
I asked her why she thinks this is, and she told me that when she was younger, and her legs used to worked better, she used to always help elderly people. She would help them to their car, or help them bring things in, or help them cross the street. It was something her parents taught her from a very young age – to always be ready to lend a helping hand to children and the elderly. Read the rest of this entry »
When we are young and inundated with life, wrapped up in the goings on of early adulthood, we sometimes miss important moments. But fortunately we can sometimes go back and touch on those things with our mind that we didn’t take the time for during those early years.
For example, I was thinking recently about a friend I used to go visit a lot when I was younger. She was from another country and her parents were much older than most who had a 15-year-old child.
We used to have sleepovers. One memory that stands out is waking up at her house one particular morning and looking out her bedroom window. It was late fall and I remember seeing her father sitting on a chair in their backyard, near the edge of the woods. He was playing a musical instrument which was some sort of Native American flute.

Reincarnation comes from the Hindu-Buddhist philosophy of soul transmigration. This is the concept of a soul moving from body to body, from one lifetime to the next. The term reincarnation comes from Latin meaning “to be made flesh again.”
Reincarnation is believed to be determined by the quality of the life that you led in the previous body. If you led a good life the results in rebirth will be a higher quality form. If you led a bad life your rebirth will be into a lower quality form.
If you are familiar with the concept karma, then you know the Law of Karma states that good deeds are rewarded and bad deeds are punished. Karma teaches that the soul should progress and become one with the universe. Reincarnation teaches that everything is God, and God is everything. Read the rest of this entry »
What does it mean to ‘pay it forward’ from a spiritual perspective? On a simple level, paying it forward means we take a gift of kindness and pass it along to the next recipient, almost like a karma chain. We’ve all probably experienced such a gift, whether it was a cup of coffee, or a new car. But why do it in the first place? We’re all told that humanity is selfish, not selfless.
If we look at paying it forward beyond the superficial ‘it feels good,’ we see that it really does make us feel better on a physical and psychological level. Stress and depression rates are much lower for those who regularly volunteer, or perform acts of charity and kindness. Our brain experiences a ‘happiness boost’ almost immediately. Life expectancy is also higher for those who volunteer, compared to people who don’t. Doing selfless things simply does make us feel good. Read the rest of this entry »
Some people believe in the Law of Karma, others do not. From my experience, personal and otherwise, karma is a very real law of the Universe. Recently, it seems the Law of Karma has shown up in my life more than I care to think about!
First, let me explain what karma is and is not. Karma is not the be all, end all of it. You determine your own karma based on your thoughts, actions and reactions. I liken it to a bank account. You either have a positive balance or a negative balance.
So, if you are a person of your word and treat others with kindness, compassion, love and caring, then your karmic bank account will be in the positive. On the other hand, if you are a person who treats others with disdain, judgment, ego, and total disregard for humanity as a whole, then your karmic bank account will be in the negative. The latter is something I hope I avoid on a daily basis. Read the rest of this entry »
Venus reflects how we give and receive love to others and ourselves. With this transit, we are being made aware of our past, including past lives, as well as breaking free from any conditioning or people who no longer serve us.
I would consider this time to be a key transitional phase for moving our lives forward and mending anything within us that still needs attention. We are clearing out the old to open up to the new opportunities on the horizon.
For those in committed relationships, flaws or communication issues may come up. It will be to your advantage to mend fences or realize that if the love is no longer there, it may be time to move on. Read the rest of this entry »
I recently found myself experiencing the most intense, hectic dreams and unusual symptoms. I became very concerned about what was going on. Physically, I was feeling awful, although I had no underlying health condition. I was experiencing headaches, and literally felt as if I had been beaten up. Any kind of concentration eluded me, but I did manage to do a reading for myself.
I don’t generally read for myself, for fear of reading too much into a situation. However, this reading revealed to me that I had been under psychic attack for several days!
It didn’t really matter to me from where such an attack might be coming from. It was also not important to me that such negativity ultimately will return to the sender with a vengeance. I just wanted to clear it. My only concern was to immediately restore powerful psychic protection around me, and to be sure that I never again forget to maintain regular psychic protection for myself.
