Default Good and Bad Karma

Since I've had a LOT of misfortune and repetitive abuse in my life, to the point of the extreme, I used to believe that somehow, I must have earned it in a past lifetime. 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?

To add to this post:

A few of you know I have a habit of calling psychic/spiritual mediums and advisors. I just spoke with one medium. She says I have overcome negative/bad karma in this lifetime and that good things will come now -- that it will only continue to get better from here. She picked up on the fact that I've had a really tough life up until now, and said this is the year where everything turns around for me, which is true! I didn't tell her a thing about my past or present. Pretty wild. I DO take these things with a grain of salt, but she was eerily accurate.

It's sort of the same thing, but this is what I believe.

Hi Eve! Hmm...I guess I really can't say because I really don't know! I really love that you are putting out support and positivity though, and that you like and are encouraged by the idea of karma. Who's to say it's not true? Keep putting that encouragement and sunshine out there! It's kind of a win/win, really. If it's not true, you're doing yourself and others a service. If it is true, you're doing yourself and others a service. Rock on with ya bad (good!!) self!

I personally dont believe in karma. However I will spare you my cynical views.

If you are happy, that's what matters. Your posts these days radiate happiness, which also spreads happiness. That is such a beautiful thing.
