Examples of Karma – True of False Part II

Share Button

After years of many past life regressions, we’ve learned to accept karma as a fact of life, and something that influences everyone, even if they don’t believe in it.

We believe that many people don’t understand the real meaning of karma, which is a reaction from an action that was most often in a past life. It’s not about punishment, but it can be about reward or a lesson.

True or false? Which examples below are truly about karma?

Relationship Karma

Ally dumped her boyfriend Alex for Ted. Six months later, Ted dumped Ally for someone else. Ally had it coming because she dumped someone.

False, it’s not her karma from dumping Alex. It was probably karmic that Ted was to end things, but doing so is not karmically related to Ally’s previous relationship, but it might be if Ted dumped her for Alex.

Janice gets very jealous and has never trusted Jim to be faithful during their six years together. Jim has never cheated or even flirted with anyone else, and Janice hasn’t had this problem in other relationships.

True, this is a karmic situation. In this example of karma, Janice and Jim have shared many lifetimes together in which they’ve both cheated. Janice is reacting to her subconscious memories, even though she has no conscious memory of her past lives.

Sexuality Karma

George grew up in the 1950s, when it wasn’t acceptable to come out of the closet. When his very religious parents found out he was gay at age 16, they kicked him out of the house. He’s lived a difficult life, and harbors a lot of anger about such an intolerant society.

True, it’s George’s tough karma. In this example, the soul that is now George lived a lifetime as a religious leader that persecuted anyone suspected of being gay. George’s soul chose a rough incarnation this time not as a punishment, but in order to learn more about tolerance.

Althea is a 17 year-old out-of-the-closet lesbian who lives in NYC with her very supportive parents and older brother. Her sexual orientation has never really been an issue for her, and her parents have always encouraged her to be who she is rather than trying to conform to the expectations of others. She has not been the target of much homophobia, and on the rare occasion that she does experience it, she shrugs it off because she knows she is a mirror for their own insecurities.

False, it’s not her bad karma. Sexuality is not a big issue for Althea this lifetime, but it was in prior lifetimes.

Karma Related to Being a Parent

19 year-old Allen broke up with 18 year-old Faye. She wanted him back so badly that when he came back to her for sex she agreed and got pregnant on purpose, even though she knew Allen didn’t want to be a parent yet. Due to his new responsibilities, he had to drop out of college and find a full time job.

True, it’s Allen’s karma. In this example of karma, it is not a punishment for breaking up with her, or for wanting sex afterwards, but karma from abandoning Faye and their child in a past life. Faye, by the way, created some negative karma by deceiving Allen.

How to tell if something is karmic? The best way is to do a past life regression and go back to the “root cause” of the issue, but generally, the lesson is that if something causes you great stress and, or anger, it’s probably karmic. The good news is that you have free will to act out of love and make the most of the situation.

“Do I have bad relationship karma?”

Share Button

It’s rare that people have such good relationship karma that they truly (without any self-deception) have a solid, happy, fulfilling, compatible, monogamous, life-long relationship.

Yes, there are many couples who stay together for years and years, but that doesn’t mean the relationship is or has always been compatible or harmonious. It’s very common for couples to stay together and turn into roommates with wedding rings because they fear being alone, having less money, or for other reasons.

Love is forever, but most relationships are not. By this we mean that love is the glue that draws people together again and again throughout lifetimes. Couples usually meet again primarily, from a spiritual perspective, for learning lessons and personal growth instead of just for romance and companionship. When those lessons are fulfilled, it may be time to move on.

However, in our society, great emphasis is placed upon relationship longevity. A relationship or marriage is considered to have “failed” if it didn’t last a lifetime. This way of thinking not only sets everyone up for disappointment, but is unrealistic.

Nobody expects their first job out of high school or college to last forever, or that every friendship will never end, and dropping such expectations for love relationships is wise, in our opinion. Everyone changes and grows at different rates and has different lessons to learn. You can’t cast someone for a relationship theatrical production and expect them to fit comfortably into that role for a lifetime.

Sometimes people are meant to be single for a while for some reason other than it just being about bad relationship karma.

Your life circumstances are reflected in your numerological and astrological timing, which is different for everyone. Sometimes you’ll have rewarding love timing, meaning more fulfilling and compatible relationships, and sometimes you won’t, and some people have much more of it than others throughout their lives. If you don’t like the way things are going now, they’ll eventually change. If you are curious about when your love timing will get better, comprehensive numerology and astrology offer tremendous insight.

Our unique delineation and prediction work tell us that relationships, and how long they last, are destined. We’re referring to the energy between two people that makes them fascinated with one another and when the appeal (sexual and otherwise) is still there months and years later, as it was in the initial stages of the connection, not the type of relationship where two people know that it’s “over,” but stay together anyway.

Therefore, it’s best to try to let go of expectations for “permanence” when becoming involved in a relationship and just accept the situation for what and how long it is meant to be. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to work out problems (since working out problems is a major reason why you’re together in the first place), just that it’s better to go with the flow.

What about some “experts” telling you that you can have a life-long relationship and that all you have to do is keep it “new” and “fresh?” Yes, perhaps some of these techniques can help renew an already relatively strong connection, but they won’t revive something that’s dead or inspire what was never there in the first place.

It may be difficult, but try to be grateful for the time you’ve spent with compatible matches in the past, what you’ve learned from the more challenging relationships you’ve had, and perhaps most important, the benefits of alone time when you’re not in a relationship. Expressing gratitude has a magical way of helping to let go of the past and welcoming more positive experiences into the present.
