Karmic release – 14/01


Karmic release – 14/01

I have decided to share something that I, myself, experienced one day during my holiday over the festive season (On that note, I must apologize for my absence and not updating this blog as frequently – but be warned, I am back in the fullest of force in all love and light!).

I have always suggested performing a karmic release to many of my clients, and have excitedly done so for them. I have been blessed enough to see them reap the benefits in front of my own eyes and see the drastic and positive changes in their lives due this release. Although, for some reason, the thought never occurred to me to do a karmic release on myself. (Blinded by the light!)

Definition of ‘karma’
1. (noun) karma
(Hinduism and Buddhism) the effects of a person’s actions that determine his destiny in his next incarnation.
– Princeton’s WordNet
1. (noun) karma
one’s acts considered as fixing one’s lot in the future existence. (Theos.) The doctrine of fate as the inflexible result of cause and effect; the theory of inevitable consequence.
– Webster Dictionary
1.  karma
the unbroken sequence, according to the Theosophists, of cause and effect, in which every effect is regarded the cause of the next.

-The Nuttall Encyclopedia

Now, we all understand karma in our own way and refer to it when we ‘misplace’ and eventually lose that 20 rand note somewhere and we remember that we ignored the bum on the street the other day and didn’t help him with a coin or two … more than once. This is a basic example and is almost wrong but, for now, it’s all we need to work with. Karma is most definitely not only accumilated and returned in this physical life, but in many before and many after. Whether you believe in past lives or not, my dearest friend, it is nothing less than true. The soul is old. Your soul is (probably) old. Older than your “Earth number” years that you’ve been alive with this certain identity.

“The soul is born old but grows young. That is the comedy of life. And the body is born young and grows old. That is life’s tragedy.” – Oscar Wilde

 

Have you ever had something happen to you (good or bad) that has made you ask yourself, “Why did this happen? I’ve done nothing to deserve this. Why?” and so on and so forth? I’m certain you have. Well, it may have been the effect (in the cycle of cause and effect) of karma accumulated in this life, or more likely a previous one. This is why we can’t see the reason for a situation happening to us, since past life recall isn’t exactly something we go out of our way to practice every day.

When a karmic release is done, you become free of the chains you have created for yourself in the past (this life or the previous) and truly become the author of your own destiny and be able to control what happens to you. Obviously we all have thousands of little karmic circles, be it the bum on the road that “made” us lose our 20 rand, or breaking a leg, because in some previous life were a carriage driver in the 1800s and hit a man in the road and broke his leg. Karma doesn’t judge. It is a universal law. Cause and effect. Whether it is a big cause, or tiny (insignificant seeming) one, it will have an equal effect. Once you release yourself from that which binds you to these causes and effects, you become free and are able to really live, without the effects popping up to mess your plans or your goals. Remember that it applies to good and bad karma.

The metaphysics of karma work in a never ending cycle (unless it is released) of cause and effect, cause and effect. Dave hurts Sarah, then Sarah hurts Dave because he hurt her (whether in this life or the next). Dave hurts Sarah in the previous life, then Sarah, for what may be an unknown reason to her, hurts Dave (in another shape, way or form of a man in the same situation). After this, Dave hurts Sarah in the next life, because he knows she has hurt him, or he feels she is about to (intuition comes into play). This vicious cycle does not end until it is broken or released.

There are two ways to break the certain circle of a karmic cause and effect:

1)      Dave could decide to be enlightened by the universal karmic law and see that Sarah has hurt him and then, in turn, refuses to hurt her back and become a channel for her and his own karmic cycle in this specific situation. He refuses to carry it on, and then forgives Sarah. This has now broken the cycle of this karmic effect.

2)      Sarah could see that Dave is about to hurt her or has hurt her and wonders why. It then occurs to her, that she must have hurt Dave in a previous life and accepts that she deserves it. By accepting that you deserve something, and acknowledging that it exists and refuse to carry on the cycle, you break it and set yourself free.

 

The key is to genuinely FEEL that you have done something (good or bad) to deserve this effect of the cause and refuse to carry it on, through accepting it and moving forward. The universal law, then breaks.

 

This is an extremely simple example, but it is nevertheless a perfect one.

Dearest friend, sit down and really look at your past experiences and situations. Things that have happened to you and things that you thought you could not control. These things may hurt when you think about it, but once you accept that it was the effect of good or bad karma and you did cause it, you can then make a conscious decision to discontinue it.

 

I performed this on myself for about an hour, sifting through all the good and bad bits of my life until now, and my word! Ever since then, I feel I am free of the ropes that bound me to my previous actions and I can truly form my own destiny now, quicker than ever, because these effects don’t pop up once the cycle is broken. It gives you peace once you have also dealt with certain situations that you have been holding onto and serves as a real and full release of even your own emotions towards these things in your past.

Choose to not be bound, choose to understand and accept. Choose knowledge and choose your freedom. Because THAT is what you really deserve, isn’t it?

REALIZE, RELEASE and live.

Our creative craving – 05/11


Our creative craving – 05/12/2011

 I am almost certain that everyone has at least one talent. Talents ranging far and wide – from painting to giving advice, from writing to fixing cars. Whether or not you aware of it, you do have one – or many! Talents bring us joy because, we are creating something of our own and putting it in the world. Whether it is just one sentence you created and felt good telling someone, or a painting you have embarked on.

 Have you ever found yourself in the office (or anywhere for that matter!) randomly doodling on a piece of paper? This usually happens when there is too much emotional noise happening within you, or most commonly when you are stressed or worried. Sometimes, it may even come across as boredom, but it is not so – even when we are ‘bored’ your subconscious emotions and thoughts are still flowing or raging (most of the time they are doing both). Our body and subconscious initiate this creative process because, that is the way we release stress and build ups of emotional tension. So, go on and doodle away!

Creativity and emotion are governed by the Sacral Chakra, which is situated just above your pubic bone. It’s physical correspondences are mainly the kidneys and reproductive organs. Emotional experiences are held here in the form of energy, and its way of releasing that energy is through creativity. When you think about the reproductive organs, they serve to bring new life into the world, and we as humans crave that. We crave to create and bring into existence. How do you feel after you have written a poem, finished a painting or spoken a few amazing words (of your own) into the world? Great, don’t you? You feel lighter, you feel like you’ve accomplished and brought new creativity into being. You feel this way because, you are letting out those pent up energies holding emotional stress or trauma out of your body and turning it into something new. It is within our human condition to create, we crave to. We need to in order to maintain flow and prevent blockages, build ups and nasty stresses from taking control over our bodies and emotions. What goes in, must come out, and when there is too much ‘in’, it will find a way out!

So, when you feel stressed, pick up that paint brush or pen. When you feel emotionally drained or tense, pick up that guitar, friend! Create! Only once you can maintain the healthy ebb and flow of your emotions by doing this, will it be your adopted creative nature. With this nature, you are nurturing every aspect of your being – not to mention giving yourself a break! Satisfy the craving. We were born to create.

Brightest blessings,

The gift of your true self – 24/11


The gift of your true self – 24/11/2011
If asked you who you are, most of you would answer by reciting your likes, dislikes, career, hobbies, hometown, fashion style and even star sign! That is all good and well but, that is not who you are. These activities and preferences no doubt shape your daily life that you like to live as YOU, although what we tend to forget is that, we are NOT our attitudes. You are not your hobbies, your new shoes or even your little everyday preferences – and no, you are not your star sign. We are also so influenced by our social circles, family and the media. We have just been innocently conditioned to apply the things that make us, us, to describe who we ARE. This is not quite it.
We all have a core, a pivot point, a soul (and an amazing one at that!). When you strip away everything you have and everything you have chosen to make yours to ‘define’ yourself, what do you see? Take a moment. Go back to the moment of your conception, before you knew the outside world. Think about your core beliefs, your inner thoughts and strip away the outside. Some of you may not like what you see or feel, but once you have established who you are truly – and you may even want to bask in it a bit longer, even write it down – , you are on your way to discovering a whole new world. Becoming comfortable with your true self and really ‘living in your own skin’ begins with compassion – compassion with yourself. Don’t be so hard on yourself and give yourself a hug from time to time. Nothing can happen outside of you until you have compassion within. Only then will you be able to have compassion with the world and a new understanding of the workings of it. Sit quietly with yourself a few times a week and just enjoy the sensation of being. And being YOU, at that.
Too often our actions and reactions are influenced by the outside world, which makes them not our own. This results ultimately in your life not being your own. And what is the point of having your very own soul, your very own life, if you are going to live it by other people’s thoughts and actions? The greatest gift is life and life’s greatest gift is love. Love yourself. Go on and strip that which was not in your true self to begin with. You will see wonderful things happen around you, from the moment of this new found peace and awareness with yourself. Be at peace with yourself and live life from your soul and core, no one else’s but yours. It is truly a gift that we can never lose or exchange. So, friend, who are you?
Brightest blessings to you.
