There are three different types of karma: prarabdha, sanchita, and kriyamana or agami. Prarabdha karma is experienced through the present body and is only a part of sanchita karma which is the sum of one’s past karmas, and agami karma is the result of current decisions and actions.
We are all very familiar with the saying “Karma is a b***h”. Someone does us wrong and that’s usually one of the first things that comes out of our mouths followed sometimes by a few colorful words. The clear cut definition of Karma for those of us who are still a tad unclear: any action you take will decide your fate either in this life or the next. Do good and good will come to you, do bad and well, you get it.
As the Law of Attraction has laws that will affect your life, so does Karma. Society still scoffs at any law or rule laid out by something that isn’t in the physical realm but karma will prove time and time again, to pay attention. So what are the 10 laws of Karma that will change your life?
1. The Law of Change.
Change your thoughts change your life. Being open to change is paramount in improving our lives and growing into a better person. Change your negative behavior, clear your toxic mind, change your life, and Karma will show its appreciation.
2. The Law of Forgiving.
When you don’t forgive, you hold grudges and may even still have ill thoughts of doing harm to that person or speaking badly of them. There is no love or good in a grudge. Karma hears you too. Forgive the ones who have hurt you and release all negative thoughts.
3. The Law of Giving.
Giving just opens the floodgates for receiving. It also maintains the flow of abundance and goodness that all selfless givers deserve. When you give with your heart, Karma knows. Try giving from ego and see what happens. Always give without expecting anything back, ever. That’s true giving.
“Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process.” Jim Rohn
4. The Law of Cause and Effect.
This falls into the universal laws of attraction but also has its hand in the law of Karma. This just goes back to the be good/do good/receive good rule. Or on the flip side of that be bad/do bad/receive bad. That’s why it’s pretty important to always just do good.
“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” Dr Wayne Dyer
5. The Law of Growth.
Be open to grow, change, learn and evolve. If you don’t change your ways or at least be open minded enough to learn new and more positive ways of living, then nothing changes which just goes back to the law of cause and effect. It’s never too late to grow, learn and change.
6. The Law of Responsibility.
Blaming others for whatever has happened is completely shrugging off your responsibilities as a person. You and you alone are responsible for your life, the bad and the good. Taking responsibility for your life will open your eyes to help you make better choices in your life.
7. The Law of Mindfulness.
Be here, present and now. Our past is out of our control as is our future. It is what we do right here, right now, in the present that will directly affect our future. Be mindful of your words and your actions today. Always be kind, loving and caring. Today.
8. The Law of Connectivity.
We are all connected energetically to the universe and each other. By staying disconnected, we are not serving any good purpose to the people or our planet. It is important to do our part to keep the world connected whether it is through love energy or a physical form.
9. The Law of Inspiration.
Staying motivated and determined to give, grow and inspire others only leads to love and massive connectivity throughout the world, almost like a chain reaction. If we fail to inspire, we fail to contribute and keep the energy flowing. It all has to start somewhere with someone. Why not you?
10. The Law of Patience.
And with patience comes reward. We all know the better we do; the more rewards we will reap. Patience is a virtue as it is not ours to know when our rewards will be sown. Remember we give and love selflessly.
