Your present life is already determined for you by the way your have lived your past lives. Your soul’s memory, called Karma, lingers on from previous lifetimes and anything left undone must be completed in the next existence.
Each new life gives you a chance to put right mistakes that you made in your prior existences. When bad things happen to you today, it is as a result of negative Karma from your past lives. The good news however, is that it can be reversed and put right. Here, we outline five of the ways in which Karma can affect your life and how you can resolve the issues lingering from previous lifetimes.
1. Karma Never Ends
Karma doesn’t just disappear. You can’t get rid of it between lifetimes, it will carry on journeying from existence to existence with you unless you take the time to look at it and deal with the issues. If you are constantly finding yourself in negative situations, these could be relating to your actions many lifetimes ago. Deal with the negative Karma of your past and look forward to a bright future.
2. There Is No Such Thing As Coincidence
No single person ever turns up in your life coincidentally. Everyone that you are connected to in your present existence has been placed there by fate to teach you a lesson or show you the way. Acknowledge that you have no free will in the way your relationships will play out – nothing you can actively do will change the way that your destiny is determined. Evaluate why the people in your life have been put there. What lesson are they here to teach you? What role are they destined to play? Explore the Karmic link you have with each individual and deal with that truth, whether it is positive or negative, in order to restore the balance.
3. Your Past Deeds Will Return To You
What you have done in your past life will be done to you in this one, for good or for bad. On a basic level, this means that if you were kind and caring in your prior lifetime, in this existence you will experience generosity and goodness. On the other hand, all the bad things that you have done to others will revist you in this life; if you lied, others will lie to you and if you stole, others will take your property. Everything you were will be played back out in this lifetime to give you a chance to redress the balance.
4. Role Reversal
Although the people in your life will be souls you have met before, the effects they had on your life and the roles that they played in it may be very different to those they are currently filling. It is not unusual for a parent in this lifetime to have been the child in their past life or for a man to have been a woman. Karma plays the game of role reversal, enabling individuals to best be able to resolve Karmic issues in their current existence.
5. Karma Causes History To Repeat Itself
The same events may play out again and again in your life. This is not designed as a punishment, but rather as an educational experience. If the same negative experiences keep happening to you, you need to stop and take stock of where you are going wrong. What do you need to change about yourself in order to prevent the same situations arising? Evaluate your failings and modify your behavior in order to end the negative Karma and move on to a positive future.
Accept that Karma is ever-present and that it is working right now in your life. Take a good look at the Karma that is influencing your existence and deal with the issues today so that you can change your destiny and look forward to happiness and peace in your future.
