“Karma seeks to serve, not punish”

There are many who have asked us to expand on the topic of Karma. We previously spoke about Karma from our perspective in which we explained: “Karma is not meant to be a punishment, but rather the balancing of experiences for the soul.” Many want to know if it is possible to clear their Karma. To this we would say that it is more than possible; it is in fact what you are all doing. And this is what we would like to focus your attention on today.

There are those who blame the problems that they experience in this life on the deeds in which they “must” have committed in another life. Know that the problems which you face today are not the result of another life’s mistakes, but rather they are the result of your beliefs in this life. We would agree that you do have overall challenges which you have agreed to overcome in this life, as you do in every life you live; however you are never being “punished” in this life for the “sins” of another. That is not the purpose of Karma. You see in order to understand Karma from our perspective; you must first remember that no life is seen as a “past” life. We view your experiences as occurring concurrently; none of which are in the past or the future, just a different perspective of the same now moment. All lives are being experienced at once. And therefore the actions which you take in another life, do in some ways affect the life you are conscious of today. Where you once chose to react based on fear, you will be met with another opportunity to react based on love. Yet with that being said, with every limiting belief which you release, with every experience which you chose love over fear, you are impacting what occurs in all other lives as well as this life. The process in which you followed in order to remove the limiting belief then becomes available for all other lives to then use as a guide. Yet what you do with that knowledge is always up to you. You always have free will and therefore you are free to experience what you wish.

You view the lives which are said to be in your past as being “set in stone” however they are just as malleable as the very one you exist in now. It is a common misconception that for every wrong deed committed a person must then pay the price for that deed, if not in that same life then in another. We would agree that what you put out will always come back to you. But this is not meant to be a form of punishment, rather it is the law of attraction in motion. The misunderstanding of Karma goes hand in hand with judgment. If you had no judgment about whether an act was “good” or “bad” then you would not seek a punishment or reward for the act. Karma is simply meant to allow you to gain more understanding by experiencing opposing viewpoints; only then can you truly see both sides.

Many seek retribution for the suffering which they have endured which has been “forced upon them by another”, and to this we would say that yes, another being may be able to commit a “negative” act upon you, however it is always your choice how you choose to view the experience. Remember that there is always a positive in every situation; yet it is up to you to see it. Karma’s purpose is simply to allow the soul to experience each side in a world based in duality. But only so that you are better able to choose love, from understanding, not for the purpose of punishment. There will always be opposing views and beliefs in a world which exists in duality, however with each new life you are afforded the opportunity to choose an experience which allows you to “walk a mile in another’s shoes”; and by doing so you gain another perspective which allows for more love and understanding to be found. Only then has your soul gained the full experience of duality.

Many still find it very hard to accept that those who have committed atrocities in your world will not be sentenced to an eternity of suffering. However, hell is created in the mind; no one can force you to endure endless suffering but yourself. You are therefore free to remove yourself from it anytime you wish. There are those who live in what most would consider atrocious conditions who experience a life of peace, and there are others who live a life of pure luxury who are plagued with misery. Only you can choose how you view your experience. Know that those who commit such hostile acts against another are imprisoned in their own version of hell, yet the jailer is none other than themselves and only they have the key to unlock the cell. It is those who commit the most heinous acts which require the most love and compassion; so that they may once again find their own light.

Many ask how they are supposed to clear their Karma if they are unaware of the experiences they have had in “past” lives, and do not know what their soul wanted to achieve in this life. This is a wonderful question although it is based on the assumption that you must “pay” for the wrong doings of another life. This is not so, you will always be met with opportunities to grow and to choose to act from a place of love and compassion rather than judgment, hate or anger. You do not need to know what other experiences you have had, or what your soul would like to work on in this life in order to successfully clear your karma; simply by choosing to respond to all situations which you encounter out of love rather than fear, hate or anger. Know that your higher self will always lead you to a path which will allow you to make a new choice. Where you once reacted out of fear, you can now choose love. This is the overall desire your soul has, for you to learn how to become masters in duality; by learning how to become a detached observer of the chaos around you rather than to sink down into it. Many of you are finding that you are beginning to do this now; you are learning how to master your reactions and choose love rather than to allow the chaos and turmoil to envelope your being. This is a grand step. This is how you are balancing your karma. And as you continue to remain in a state of peace, you will continue to elevate your vibration and there will come a day when chaos will no longer surround you; as your vibration is far too high for its touch.

There are still many others who will continue to choose to be consumed by the drama around them as they are not ready to yet give up the game. However those of you who have worked on releasing limiting beliefs and focused on elevating your consciousness and vibration; you are the ones who will set the example for all others to follow. By learning to steady your own vibration regardless of what happens around you, you are achieving all that you came to do. We have said this many times and it is worth repeating, you have come to share your light, you have come to stand as a pillar of peace amongst great turmoil, and you have come to master your reactions in a world based in duality. When you have achieved neutrality in a world based in duality, only then can you be sure you have fully learned all there is to know in a dualistic world. To remove all judgment and replace it with only love and compassion; you have then found what you have been searching for. Know that by doing these very things, you are balancing all that you have ever set into motion. You are fulfilling all that you desired to achieve.

The beauty in this divine plan is that you are always afforded another chance to make a new choice. You are free to change your mind, you are free to change your reactions, and you are always free to choose again. So we ask that the next time you are faced with a frustrating or disturbing situation, we ask that you choose to act out of love; as love will always lead you to peace and balance.

We hope that this message has in some way served you.

In love and light, we are your Angelic Guides.

““Karma is not meant to be a punishment, but rather the balancing of experiences for the soul”

Today we would like to focus your attention on the purpose of Karma.  There are many on your world who misunderstand what Karma truly is.  There are those who look to another whom they see as committing an act which “deserves” punishment and say that the person will have to pay the “price”; karma will get them in the end.  While we see this as being true in one sense, we also would like to explain from our perspective what the role of karma is in your reality.

You are living in duality; the nature of your reality is one in which there are opposites; black and white, hot and cold, good and bad depending on the perspective of the observer.  There are other universes that do not operate under the same preconceived conceptions.  In other words there are worlds which offer the experience of triality, there are others that offer the experience of no free will; which only allows the soul to choose its experiences before the incarnation, once incarnated there is no deviation from the set of experiences the soul wishes to have.  There are other worlds which do not operate in physical reality, and still others that would seem so foreign to you that we simply do not have the words available to explain them to you.

Now in your world you have all agreed to experience duality, which requires there to be two sides which are polar opposites of each other to any given situation.  From our perspective karma is not a punishment to be dished out to those who have committed offenses, which then deserve to have “bad” things happen to them because of what they have done. No, we see it rather as a desire for the soul to balance out all experiences.  For instance if a soul has lived a particularly “dark” life, then it may choose to have an experience of the exact opposite to better understand and learn from both sides.  You have all had many lives in which you wanted to experience lack in many ways, and you then chose to experience abundance in other lives.  In one life a soul may have chosen to experience health but chose to take it for granted, while in another life the soul wanted to experience illness so that it could better understand the value of health.  In one life a soul may have chosen to be homeless and experience extreme poverty where they had great detest for the wealthy, and yet in another life they chose to experience extreme wealth in which they looked down on the poor.  The soul wanted to experience both sides.  Remember that there is no inherent value placed on any act that deems something as good or bad, it is simply your perspective that label’s it so.

There are those of you who may in some way be disappointed that those who have done “harm” to others will not in some way be harmed in return.  But this is not necessarily true, we are not saying that they will not experience some sort of suffering for their actions, what we are saying is that the reason why they will experience suffering is to balance out their soul’s experience not as a form of punishment.  Many have been taught that if they commit “sins” against God or against another their punishment is to go to hell; however we see hell as being no more of a place than heaven is.  It is all a state of mind.  There are some on your world who are experiencing “hell” in their waking lives right now.  This is of their choosing of course and they can leave anytime they want.  Heaven is only a thought away.

Remember that it is impossible to do something to another without it affecting you directly; good or bad.  It makes no difference, again, the universe is neutral and does not decide what is good and what is bad, it only brings back to you what you send out.

Many of you in this life have a “laundry list” of things you wanted to work on, karma you wanted to balance, beliefs you wanted to replace; and the reason for this is because this particular cycle of incarnation is ending.  You have been here so many times before, you have worked on so many different issues along the way, but never have you set such high goals before for just one lifetime.

Some of you wonder why this life seems to be so challenging; “if you are an old soul, then why is it that you haven’t mastered more of these challenges that you are facing by now?”  The reason for this is not because you have not mastered these challenges but because you are now a master and you can face these challenges with greater ease.  You have volunteered to serve others by showing them how it’s done!  By overcoming these obstacles that you have put on your path you can show others how to remove these limiting beliefs; however if you came in here with nothing left to work on you would not be able to set an example for others to follow.  Never before have you had a life so “jam packed” with obstacles to remove from you path.  It’s not because you haven’t done enough, it’s because you are the ones who can handle walking the more difficult paths!

We thank you for your courage and the tremendous service you are providing for others who desire to change as a result of the examples you have set.

We hope that this message has in some way served you.
