At some point or other in our lives, we have asked ourselves this question: why is this happening to me? The answer’s not that simple, but it has a lot to do with our negative Karma.
What Is ‘Karma’?
You must be familiar with the term ‘Karma’. Derived from ancient Sanskrit, it means work or action. But the word has taken in various connotations over time. The Universal Law of Karma is governed by the principle of a chain of cause and effect. It’s all about the negative and positive effects of our actions, words, and thoughts.
Yes, the ‘Law of Karma’ is not only restricted to the actions you take. You might gather negative Karma from negative thoughts, emotions, and intentions. So, you might engage in positive actions, but unless you get rid of the negativity within you, your negative Karma will keep hindering your way in life.
According to the Law of Karma, we don’t accidentally live and die in a single life. Everything in this universe is governed by a system or a greater law. So, when you pass through life, you’re bound to act and think. This continuous process keeps adding to your positive or negative Karma.
How To Minimize Your Negative Karma?
Just like there’s negative Karma, there is good Karma as well. But our human nature inadvertently makes us focus on the adversities and negativities in life. However, this is what you have to avoid to minimize your negative Karma. It is all about reprogramming what is inside your hearts and getting rid of your negative ego.
The process of minimizing your negative Karma is also about changing your outlook in life. As you pass through life, you can choose to let go of negative reactions towards people and situations.
It is also important to remember that Karma is not an instantaneous process. So, be patient. You can’t get rid of your Karmic burdens in a day. You must keep at it throughout your lifetime.
You can also choose to focus on good karmic experiences like gratitude and patience, humility, optimism, and so on. When you focus on these positive qualities and include them in your regular thought and action, you increase your positive energy. These positive karmic experiences can improve not only this but other future lives as well.
Why Is Dealing With Negative Karma Important?
This process is like a cleansing ritual for your soul. You can detoxify yourself by meditating on the positive qualities in life. Engaging in this practice can also help you find solace and re-energize your soul with newfound inspiration.
Sometimes our negative Karma leads to tough situations in life. The soul might choose to go through these painful experiences voluntarily. These unavoidable negative circumstances in life provide you an opportunity to learn and grow from them.
But even in these situations, it’s important to keep yourself together and inculcate new values, perspectives, realizations, and beliefs. It is like your soul’s attempt to evolve into a better human being.
So, dealing with your negative Karma can be a way to learn how to overcome negative situations and rebuild yourself.
