My Mood: Good and Bad Karma

Past life Karma coming back to me. I once had done a past life regression whereby the spiritual advisor told me I had been abusive in my last lifetime.

That's not what made me believe it was karma in action, though. It's the long-standing and very bizarre chain of events and circumstances that kept repeating themselves which made me believe it was negative karma at play. Many abusive bosses, many abusive men... too many to count. Over and over and over again. It was like I had a magnet on my forehead. After a while, you begin to wonder what's going on, when it's a long-standing pattern as such. Abusive men, Ok, yeah it's familiar and maybe you become attracted to that, but abusive bosses, too?? Very strange to have had both. It could have just been bad luck.

On the flip side, this year, I have had a landslide of good fortune and amazing things happen, all for the better, and all positive. Literally, one good thing after another has been happening in my life this year. Everything has suddenly turned around, and all for the better.

So what suddenly changed? Did my good karma in this lifetime finally catch up with me and come back to me? Had I served long enough in prison from bad karma? Did I right the wrongs?

These are rhetorical questions I am asking. Who knows what the real truth is. The universe most certainly works in mysterious ways, ways in which we cannot even begin to understand or know. I certainly don't understand, nor would I claim to understand.

However, I am tending to think that because I started a movement for greater positivity in this world and greater happiness, and since that has spread like wildfire, that I am earning good karma. That is not why I did it though. I simply wanted to send a positive message out to the world, and I genuinely wanted to help people to live happier lives.

I think I do believe in the saying "what goes around comes around", which is the same thing as karma. Put positive, loving energy out there and see what happens. But negative energy out there and see what happens.

So what do you believe? Do you believe in karma? Do you think negative energy comes back at you and vice versa?
I think sending out prayers or good thoughts and giving words of comfort are noble and good things that are always worthwhile... The older I get the more I value the simple kindnesses... above all else nothing is better than kindness. I have no idea where it goes or if it comes back but I do believe itís possible to create a powerful, positive energy. ❤️

Same here! I definitely believe in the power of payer AND positive energy. Ever since I started thinking that way, my life has improved.

No I don't believe in karma or anything that "governs" the universe. It's simply not feasible. Negative energy comes to you? Of course, only if you do the wrong things. Other than that, nothing really that ties with karma. I am sorry you had to go through all this.


Edit : I don't mean you're to blame that you've been abused, but I mean you simply cross the path of wrong men, they abused you. I am not saying having faith is bad... if karma was true, I would have been in medical college by now. Or even an engineering college. Who knows? Born to better parents?

Thank u for your thoughts and sentiments. We disagree but thatís ok. I do believe my abuse was due to negative karma. But itís over now, thankfully, which is what matters most!!

Yes, it's all tied into the law of causality, cause and effect, which is a fundamental realty. Good on you golden_eve. Just remember not to go sliding back down the hill again like I've done a few times, ha.

I do think people can collect good or bad karma based on how they treat other people.

But isn't it cruel to say that little children suffering is their own fault for sins in their past life?
