Karma Cleanse: A 5-Step Guide To Resetting Your Karma For A More Positive Life
In a nutshell, karma is the law of action and reaction: all of your actions create equal reactions. Everything you think, say or do, generate energy that will manifest back into your life over time. Good causes more good, while the bad causes more bad.
So, what if your karmic cupboards are filled with negativity? This negativity could stem from anger and bitterness towards other people, which can clouds your judgment and choices every day. Bad karma could also be from making poor choices that inflict pain on family, friends, or partners.
A karma cleanse clears out your spirit from all of this accumulated junk, so you can start the karmic cycle fresh with a more positive note in life. Think of it as “spring cleaning” for your spirit, starting with these five steps.
Ask For Forgiveness
Despite your best intentions to do good things and create good karma, some of your actions will inadvertently cause pain and sorrow in other people.
It’s only human to affect the lives of other people and it doesn’t make you a bad person, but the bad karma you generate can lead to major repercussions in your life.
So, for all the hurt that you’ve created, try to make amends with sincerity and honesty. Reach out to the people you’ve wronged, ask for their forgiveness, and be ready and willing to work for what you owe them. This can be as simple as paying back a monetary debt, or as complex as taking the time to build back the trust you’ve destroyed.
Keep in mind that it’s the other person’s prerogative to forgive you or not and that you can’t force them to let go of the past if they’re not inclined to. However, whether or not you are forgiven, even just the act of being genuinely sorry and expressing your apology will clear your mind and spirit from this particular burden.
Forgive Those Who Hurt You
Just as important as seeking forgiveness from others is granting other people your forgiveness. From old lovers to neglectful parents, there are multiple people who have wronged you and some do not even acknowledge the pain they’ve caused.
The thing is, as long as you are holding on to these negative feelings, you are keeping yourself weighed down. In a sense, you are hurting yourself just as much as you are hurting the other person.
Remember, forgiveness isn’t about letting wrongdoers off the hook, but setting yourself free from the negativity. Forgiveness is a two-fold gift: you are releasing them from the guilt of their actions and also releasing yourself from the anger, resentment, and bitterness, of the past.
As you get started on your karma cleanse, write a letter of forgiveness to the people who have hurt you in the past, even those who have not apologized to you directly. There’s no need to send the letter, but make sure that your words are genuine.
The simple act of forgiveness will take a heavy burden off your shoulders and allow you to live a life of peace and positivity.
If you want to move forward with pure positivity, gratitude is your friend! Finding small and big things to be thankful for opens your eyes to all the beauty and good fortune that exists in the world.
When you learn to appreciate the blessings that come your way, you also avoid dwelling on the things that occasionally go wrong. Instead of sinking into negativity over various mistakes, rejections, and the unfortunate events that you encounter, you’ll learn to focus on the silver lining and create more positivity in your life.
During your karma cleanse, make a comprehensive list of all the things you are grateful about, from your loving family to all the food stuffed in your refrigerator.
Put your list, including photos if you have some, somewhere you can see it everyday, such as your office desk, your bedside table, or even your meditation space. When you hit a rough spot in your life, it helps to be reminded of the good things.
Do Small Acts Of Kindness
When it comes to karma, you reap what you sow. Remember, good causes good and bad causes bad. So, take the time to do good things everyday and inject more happiness into the lives of your family and friends!
You don’t always have to be burdened down with the pressure of undertaking amazing deeds, such as charity events, or saving someone’s life. Small, simple acts of everyday kindness are enough to change your life and the lives of the people around you.
Start your good deeds at home, by bringing your mother flowers from the supermarket, or driving your dad to his weekly golf game with his buddies. Smile at the doorman, pick up the trash on the street and slow down to let the pedestrian cross the street safely. By being mindful, loving, and considerate of others, you are making the world a better place — and creating good karma for yourself!
Live With Love And Good Intentions
Ultimately, good karma is created when you think, feel, and act, with love and compassion.
No matter who is in front of you or what they have done, treat everyone with respect, dignity, and empathy. Practice honesty at all times, but be kind and gentle with your words as well.
When you are hurt by the words or actions of other people, try to avoid lashing out and retaliating. Respond with patience and understanding, so that you can avoid creating even more negativity between the two of you.
It’s also important to remember to keep your intentions in check by occasionally examining yourself with honesty and clarity.
What are the motives behind your actions? Is your forgiveness sincere and your generosity free?
Instead of expecting something in return for your acts of kindness, be happy and content that you are doing something good for someone else.
A karmic cleanse is only the first step in creating positive change in your life! Enjoy it and embrace the clean slate of your spirit.
