Self-Karma

BY DAVE GREGG
 

If you are routinely undergoing intense personal challenges that you can't seem to overcome, you are probably experiencing self-karma. Common self-karmic issues involve addictive behaviors, such as: smoking, drug or alcohol abuse, gambling, credit card debt, or fundamental acceptance issues like weight problems, depression due to balding, and other disorders that cause an internal imbalance. Going from one bad relationship to another can also be a form of self-karma, as well as frustrating conditions like chronic insomnia. In general, self-karma involves a variety of personal issues, and is therefore a highly subjective experience unique to each individual.

Since self-karma is a specific challenge that essence desires you to work on, fighting the problem will only fuel its intensity. Learning acceptance and tolerance is the best way to alleviate the stress caused by the karma. Thoroughly examining the triggers that cause emotional upheaval during the process will also help you learn to lessen the negative effects of the karma, grow from the experience, and diffuse the impact it has on your life.

The origins of self-karma are highly personal, and Michael channel Shepherd Hoodwin says self-karma "is caused by false, self-limiting beliefs acquired in past experiences, either in past lives or earlier in the lifeime. This can result in a disease, for instance, that requires a righting of the internal imbalance in order to heal."

It is helpful to remind oneself that self-karma is a learning tool, so learn to accept its lesson with grace and maturity.
