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.

 

All my love and brightest blessings,

The Elements – 09/12


THE FOUR ELEMENTS OF ANTIQUITY

The four major elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water – are proved to have dominated natural philosophies for two thousand years or so. From the early days of man’s existence, he knew that all matter was formed from these four elements, ultimately. The first set theory stating this, was developed by the Greek philosopher, Empepedocles, of Sicily. This theory – or more belief – did not seize to be practiced until the rise and popularity of modern science. As other theories, belief systems, laws and questions came into play, we began to look for a more complicated answer to all matter in existence. It couldn’t have been as easy as one, two, three, four, could it? Well, yes! Of course it could, but not for us – we won’t settle for simplicity. We love to make things more complicated than they really are.

Although modern science has given us many blessings in breakthroughs and assisted us in countless ways, we have, nonetheless, lost our connection with the natural elements and forgotten how to accept the simplicity that lies in all matter and the unavoidable influence they have on our lives. Even today, Earth, Air, Fire and Water are still very accurate symbols for the four states of all matter – solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Modern science has no doubt discovered new ideas, but in the field of Mysticism and holistic living, these elements are still of grave importance to illustrate and keep oneself rooted with the knowledge of the oneness of all things.

There are ancient symbols linked to each element and they are still used widely today in many belief systems around the globe. Some mystics and yogis insist that the symbols of the four elements be placed on the temple and various alters in their home. It is not uncommon to see Earth(sand), a bowl or glass of water, candles(Fire) and feathers(Air) placed together in one location in a someone’s home, to commemorate, honour and be reminded to keep the awareness of the natural elements and all beings as coming from one origin. I’m sure you’ve heard of the ‘Fifth element’ at some stage in your life. This element is acknowledged by many belief systems and religions. It is commonly labelled as Ether or Spirit. I, personally, prefer Spirit. The role of this fifth element in our lives and in the natural world, will be explained in detail to you in the following chapters. Having a constant reminder of the influence of the four elements in our lives is vital to our mental and physical well-being. No matter what your religion, one thing is true in all of them – we are all part of one Earth. This is the truest, most magickal thought that can alter any mood and bring you peace of mind. So get a handful of some soil, a bowl of water, a feather and a pretty candle and put it someplace special to remind you of the amazing interconnectedness of which you and I are al apart of. Let’s explore this, shall we?

In my coming posts we’ll explore inviting the natural world into your life – for good 🙂

Tarot meditation reading – 07/12/2011

Seeker (The High Priestess)

“Take personal responsibility. Your body is trying to give you a message. Listen to it. Look inside for answers.”

When running through daily life, many of us are driven by routine and we give ourselves little time to sit back and look from the outside, in because, we are always too involved with the ‘out’ and the on goings outside of us and around us. In this week, it is time for decision making and making certain the choices are true by looking to yourself for the advice and answers, instead of looking at the outside shells of situations.

It’s time to weigh up options and see the true potential in things that concern you (or have been concerning you for a while) and stepping aside to let your higher mind lead and guide you to what the best outcome would be. Looking inside for the answers is just another way of saying ‘you already know what the answer is’. This couldn’t be more true! The key right now, is to stay inactive and still your thoughts in order to gain and access your higher consciousness (ie THE CORE YOU). First listen, observe, contemplate with a discerning frame of mind and the answers will surely come to you – and damn fast at that!

What many of us don’t realize is that we already have all the knowledge within our bodies ad subconscious – we just need to access it. This is such a beautiful blessing we have! Imagine a world where you could ask yourself any question and you would receive an answer just like that! We have the ability to have it that easy, but it takes time and practice. You have stilled and blocked your higher mind for so long by responding to outside situations hastily, living outside of yourself. I know it’s difficult, between the car pool, work, the kids’ lunches, picking up the dry cleaning, fixing the light that fused in the lounge and still having to look after yourself, but when you have a question or choice to be made, take a moment. Still your mind and close your eyes. Find yourself standing inside your body and mind, away from outside stimulus and ASK YOURSELF. You will be amazed at what you hear. It’s all there and it’s all you, just ask.

Tarot meditation reading – 30/11


Tarot meditation reading – Wed 30/11/2011

 

Exemplar of Bowls (King of cups)

“Ever-deepening love welcomes the living spirit to Earth.”

 

We have all heard the saying, “There is always calm before the storm.” This little saying embodies the very nature of our emotions. Our emotions have a somewhat watery nature and act much like the tides of the oceans – they can be calm, serene and cleansing, or they can rage and wreak havoc when the tides are rough. What most of us forget is that the biggest influence on our emotions is ourselves. Our unconscious and subconscious thoughts have a million and one emotions and feelings locked away, which we rarely address and are aware of. These feelings of ours which we tend to ignore or lock away, have a huge effect on our actions, reactions, perception and most of all the fluctuation of our emotions. The key to breaking through this separation of your thoughts and feelings, is to become aware of the influence of your unconscious by integrating and looking deeper to find an equilibrium and constant balance of healthy emotions. This requires a discerning nature and unconditional love. When we practice unconditional love and are detached from too much emotional noise, we can begin to maintain that balance within our emotions. This significant change brings about a greater understanding of the self and promotes you to go forward into the world with unconditional love and a greater sense of self. What a lovely world it would be if we all could understand and control our emotions to see the bigger picture! You can feed this new found balance with feelings of acceptance and the awareness of your whole being. Being satisfied with life and truly feeling that it is rewarding to be alive and in action, introduces a greater flow into your life, and in turn, the world. So, choose to be discerning, get to know and accept your deepest emotions to move forward in unconditional love because, the practice of ever-deepening love welcomes the living spirit to Earth once more.

 

Brightest blessings to you,
