Do You Need A Karmic Cleanse?
Spring is in the air! Days are getting longer, flowers are budding and birds are chirping. During this time, many of us also do some much needed “spring cleaning”, ridding our closets (and ourselves) of unnecessary clothes and material belongings that no longer serve us.
Yet, before we do this house cleaning, don’t you think it’s a good idea to get into the right mindset…To let go of unneeded mental clutter? Negative thoughts and behaviors? Toxic relationships?
To do this, maybe a Karmic Cleanse is in order! I’m not referring to a session where a person “heals” you of your negative karma or a ceremonial process. I’m referring to a change in YOUR mindset- accomplished by YOU alone and not dependent on someone else.
So, what is karma anyway?
Karma is a Sanskrit word that refers to the cycle of cause and effect, meaning every action that we take in life affects others at some point in the future. This rule also applies to our thoughts and words.
Have you ever made some poor choices at the expense of someone else’s feelings that you’ve later regretted? I think we all have! Sometimes our needs and desires cause us to react in a negative manner – in almost a reflexive way. But what if we could change this?
According to Dina Strada, a freelance writer for the Chopra Center, the universe will bring back whatever acts that we have committed or feelings that we have caused in others. This karmic “boomerang” teaches us to be more compassionate and think before acting(1).
Have you ever wondered when the karmic payback would be due to someone who did you wrong? Well, rather than obsessing on this and wasting precious time, what if we shifted our mindset to being more compassionate to both ourselves and others?
What a concept, right?
So here are the 5 Steps to Giving Yourself a Karmic Cleanse!
- 1) Be Grateful for every experience, both good and bad.
- 2) Act with love towards everyone ( yourself) and others.
- 3) Check your motives and make sure that they are coming from a place of love for self and others.
- 4) Watch your attitude. Negative thoughts can create hostile energy directed at you and others.
5) Forgive * I think this is the most important!! It can be the hardest of all the steps, but so critical in creating great karma for you and others.
*Let me be clear about forgiveness – this does not mean you are forgiving someone for a wrongful act that they may have done or excusing them for their behavior. By forgiving, you are releasing yourself from holding onto any negative connection with the situation.
Your time, thoughts and energy need to be focused on how best to take care of YOU - not on others’ actions you can’t control.
So…before doing your physical cleansing– remember first to take time to clear out your mind and soul!
