Living Free and Light!
Liberation, lightness of being, a relaxed and easy life… is not just a dream but a reality, if we choose.
Most of us however have some or the other baggage to deal with…even those who believe themselves to be spiritually liberated (experiencing a temporary spiritual high in meditation, even if it lasts all your life does not mean true liberation). True liberation involves healing of all past negative attachments so that even when you are back to the mundane world you are totally free. Liberation does not mean having no will to continue living in positive energy. Those who seek to escape from rebirth altogether are infact deluding themselves. The very fact that they wish to escape the cycles of life, death and rebirth implies that they have pain and suffering that is unhealed and by avoiding facing these negativity, we are not going to truly be free. To be free we have to first face our inner truth and to heal our reality.
Our physical reality is created by our inner spirit. Thus the spirit has the power to choose where and how to reincarnate, taking a new form of energy. This can be a joyful experience if reincarnation is focused on experiencing a natural, healthy and balanced way of life. However most of the times souls reincarnate with negative energetic or karmic baggage or unfinished business.
Why Do we Reincarnate with Past Karmic Baggage?
When our transactions in life are not sorted out – i.e. either we or another feels unbalanced in our relationships or associations, this leads to negative energy or baggage that accumulates in one or more people involved in the transaction.
If not cleared off in the present life, it will still be recorded in the akasha or spiritual library where all memories and feelings are stored. Our soul is connected to this ethereal ocean of consciousness and chooses our future lives based on the lessons to be learnt from the higher self (ethereal) to lower self (physical). These lessons will then be carried on by the individual soul to the next life and a new drama will play out helping the learning be more intense. Past Life Therapy helps us discover the lessons we need to learn and the patterns we need to heal.
The karmic baggage thus carried within us multiplies with every cycle. So if you owe rs 100 to one person in this life and the person feels betrayed as you could not repay it, this along with a lot of interest you must pay in your next life.
This does not just apply to financial transactions. Emotional associations are equally full of guilt and sorrow if they are hazy, unclear and imbalanced. One or more person may feel drained out, cheated or used in relationships and this automatically means that the person who has caused this emotional drain will carry guilt in their subconscious (even though they may not always be aware of the guilt). Not having a clear cut contract in your romantic life leads to pain and a feeling of betrayal for one or more involved in the relationship. This is because the base of the relationship – the root chakra – which means stability and committment is dysfunctional and there are constant insecurities (conscious or subconscious – known or unknown to the people involved).
I must stress upon this part even though it may fluster some of my friends. Not just laymen but also some people who are followers of new age spirituality are often not properly grounded in this aspect of relationships, and thereby have been observed as being very airy, impractical and unclear in the way they transact with others financially and in romance. For example relationships with multiple partners or even one partner without any proper contract whether marital or otherwise can sound like a fun thing but will sooner or later hurt. A lot of commitment phobic men and women seem to be getting into one or the other brand of spirituality that is based on beliefs that ‘seriousness’ of any kind or any ‘strings attached’ are unnecessary or even deplorable in romantic or sexual encounters. While they may ‘fly’ for a while in their ‘beyond’ state, they forget that even the birds, angels, god and goddess come down to earth in this eternal cycle of manifestation and transformation and have to follow ethics and principles even in their higher realms. Infact you may have heard that many of such spiritual gurus who prescribe ‘unserious’, ‘playful’ attitudes and behaviors in love and sex, at the expense of grounding, foundation and clarity have themselves died of AIDS or in other tragic ways. Their example can tell us a lot about the dangers of ungrounded spirituality and the fact that karma always catches up even if you ignore your karmic responsibilities. Ignorance (including spiritual drunkenness) is not bliss.
Another thing we take for granted is our family life. In your family not having proper legal will for inheritance, unequal behavior towards one or the other child, abuse of any kind of spouse, parent, child, taking any person for granted, misunderstandings, all can create negative baggage that gets passed from generation to generation, requiring Trans-generational Healing as well.
And of course financial debts that are not cleared in time and with proper interest can lead to a lot of trauma in one or more person’s aura and this energy gets imprinted onto ether which is akasha or the storehouse of all information in the universe.
Money, emotions, feelings, work… all is energy and is none of this is to be taken lightly or irreverently. Mutual respect and balance in any transaction we make on earth or any other planet is totally necessary. We must feel deserving of this respect and balance and ask and give it fully.
Karmic debts unless and until balanced with interest will accumulate on and on giving the persons who caused the negativity more and more suffering until he or she settles everything back to balance. To do this the person who suffers often takes on the spiritual path at one point of time, with the help of a spiritual master or with his or her own enlightenment to
gain clarity on the negative pattern, its cause and its right solution and thereby heals the situation and energies so as to bring things back to balance through the process of Karmic Disentanglement.
The Price to Pay:
There is always a price to pay if you wish to clear off your negative baggage. This can be expensive but is totally liberating. Sometimes people think they can just burn a little candle, perform a small yagna, wear a tiny ring, say a prayer and liberate themselves of all possible karmic debts. This is often illusory. The amount of energy (money, effort, etc) that you may have to spend will be directly proportional to the amount of negative baggage that you have to clear off. If one ritual does not give practical results be assured that it has to some extent cleared off your etheric negativity or karma and perhaps you need several more to get a full relief. Always know that the spiritual work of healing that you perform will always work at some level and if at first you don’t succeed it just means you need to put in more energy and try again as you may have multiple blocks. Do not give up or stop the work. Even if a person is dying and
accepting spiritual healing, even when he dies as the body did not get the time to show the effect of this healing, his spirit carries the effect of healing and the effect of this positive energy reflects in his otherworld and future lives. If you do not give any spiritual healing to the ailing person and treat him only cosmetically on the physical level, the ethereal imprint or soul of the person will still carry the negativity to deal with in future lives. A wise person will always go for maximum spiritual healing.
Freedom from Negative Karmic Cycles:
This can be attained by first clearing off all our past burdens, by healing ourselves at every level holistically and simultaneously from now on, through spiritual, psychological, emotional and financial releasing. Simultaneously from NOW on we should try keeping all our transactions, financial and emotional, absolutely clear, practically sound and with least potential to hurt any of the parties involved.
One way to do this is through following those legal and practical rules that make for a sound understanding between all our partners, romantic financial or otherwise and thus totally free all concerned of duality or subconscious fears. Another things is to remember that laws in the physical world are framed by humans but have been biased in the past (eg. laws that ignore rights of homosexuals or transsexuals are still existent in many countries). Thus more important than blindly following laws and rules of your state is to seek the answer to this question
- Is what I am doing good for myself and all others?
- Does it harm none?
Often legal rules need to be changed if they are not good for all concerned and this change takes place as a result of public awareness that helps the states to revise their books of law.
Living in Freedom:
Always live each moment as if it may be the last. In every moment we must have absolute bliss and freedom (free will) and least amount of karmic negativity to be carried forward. Clear off all your debts. Forgive and ask for forgiveness. Heal yourself and send loving energy to others. This means the next life or next form we take will be entirely our choice and not a repetition of past mistakes and burdens. Even when alive the next moment will be free of karmic blockages or negativity so that our power to manifest our desires or work our Magick becomes and remains strong and infinite.
