The Fallacy of Karma

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who recently lost a lot of money in the stock market, feels depressed, and doesn’t know how to deal with this situation. They feel there are four ways they can explain this loss. The first is that they lost the money due to karma from a past life because they didn’t cheat anyone in their current lifetime.

The Council says thinking about your loss in terms of karma is helping you deal with what’s going on, but this thinking isn’t correct because there isn’t any karma. There isn’t anything you need to pay back. There’s no force outside yourself that’s making sure you repay your karmic debt. The only person that feels they have to repay this debt is you. You’ve set it up this way for this lifetime until you come to know who you are. You lost money because of the choices you made, not because of a karmic debt that you were supposed to lose this money to make up for something that happened earlier in this life or a past life. The idea of karma is something you’re using as a tool to give you some understanding until you can experience the truth of the way your life truly is.

Anonymous says, The second way I’m thinking about the loss is that I’m paying back my karmic debt from a past life. I might have owed people the money in my past life so now I’m paying it back in my current lifetime. In other words, my soul enjoyed other people’s money in a previous lifetime and now I’m paying it back with this loss.

The Council says if you enjoyed other people’s money in a past life, that’s wonderful, but there’s still no karmic debt you have to pay back. You may have decided coming into your current life that you’ve had a lot of money in other lives and now you’re interested in living the other side of this coin. And as you grew up you heard what people believed about karma and you chose to believe this to make you feel better.

The Council says your belief in a karmic debt isn’t true, but it’s helping you deal with your stock market loss. This loss was due to your choices. There’s no other reason. How about taking the focus of your thoughts and thinking you don’t need to believe in karmic debt anymore? You don’t need to think there’s an outside force that’s making you lose this money. There’s no debt to repay. For the rest of my life I can go on, live it the way I want, make the choices I want, and know there’s nothing that’s forcing me to go into this thing we call karma and repay anybody.

The Council says you’re just having an experience so you can deal with something and then question it so you can learn and grow from this experience. Now you can change the way you operate in your life. Change your understanding and feel the relief that comes with knowing you don’t have to pay anybody back. There’s nothing to do and there’s no karmic debt.

Anonymous says, The third way I think about this loss is that I have to work through karma in this life before I die. So if I don’t pay this amount when I’m 43 years old, I need to pay it back when I’m older when it’ll be more difficult to digest and recover. It’s better it happened at a younger age. Is this thinking correct?

The Council says, no, this isn’t correct thinking. What’s good is now that you’re hearing this you can start playing with refocusing your thoughts. The nice thing about thinking your situation is karmic and that you have to repay this debt before you die is now that you’ve heard what we have to say, you’ll realize there isn’t any karmic debt. Play with this thought. There is no debt. I don’t have to repay anything. I’m fine if I die tomorrow and I’m fine if I die 20 years from now.

Anonymous says, The last way I think about my situation is had I been more savvy with my investments I’d have lost less money. The Council says you’re very smart to think this way, but this has nothing to do with karma. Anonymous continues, But if my karma was to lose that amount of money, and I was smarter to lose less, karma would have got back to me in another way to bring me the same sorrow to make back for the money shortfall. Examples would be an accident, injury, sickness, etc. So either way I’d have experienced the same sorrow. The Council says you’ll create this situation only if you believe it. There’s no accident waiting to happen. There’s nothing horrible that’s going to happen to you because of this karmic debt.

The Council says when you begin to change your thoughts you’ll be able to create acquiring more money. You’ll create new people in your life. Maybe you’ll create a better job. When you change your thoughts to being a free spirit and that you have control of your life and how you live it, you’ll begin to see an abundance of everything coming to you.

The Council says again that the karma this person believes in only exists because of their belief in it. It’s a tool to deal with the loss of money that occurred. This was set up before you came into this life so you could get to this point and then somehow you’d be able to find out this new information about how karma doesn’t exist. You wanted to experience that sort of thinking and then change your thinking and experience the relief and the change you can create in your life with the new thinking.

Challenges, Suicide, and Spiritual Growth

This post is inspired by a reader named Cait, who says she thinks about ending her life every day because it’s so painful, and she asks The Council if she’s able to break a pre-birth contract she made in spirit once her incarnation has begun.

Cait begins by asking The Council, what if the path your soul chose to achieve spiritual growth actually inhibits your spiritual growth? And The Council says this is never the case. They say your spirit works out whatever challenges it wants to meet while it’s in the physical body, and while this can seem difficult from a human point of view, your spirit knows exactly why it has chosen what it has chosen and what it is trying to accomplish.

The Council says when you begin to accept you are spirit in a physical body and believe you can learn with less difficulty, and can focus on the way you wish your life to be rather than the way it is, this is the beginning of change. You always have the power to turn your situation around. When you plan in spirit whatever you want to experience, it isn’t written in stone. You create every minute of every day, and so you can create something new.

Cait says she thinks about ending her life every day, and while The Council says there is no judgement in spirit for taking her life, they explain there’s growth she can experience from going through these challenges. And if she chooses to pass on these challenges in this lifetime she’ll be postponing them until she chooses to learn from them in a future lifetime.

Cait comments that her life is harmful to her soul, and The Council replies that her soul will never create circumstances that will harm her spiritually. It creates these situations for her to grow from them, to change them, and to bring love into them.

Cait asks how she can get out of her current challenge without killing herself and The Council advises her to refocus her attention and read as many books as possible on spiritual growth that can teach her who she is as a spiritual being.

Cait finishes her comment by saying her higher self doesn’t appear to care about her or her suffering. And The Council says Cait has no idea the love, caring, and support that spirit has for her if she’ll open up to it, even if she only pretends to feel it at first.

The Council recommends Cait read a book written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel and Pat Rodegast, and the energy from this book will help her turn her life around.

The Council tells Cait she’s come to this feeling of desperation and wanting out on purpose to experience an extreme situation so she can find a better way through this. And The Council says she will find it.

Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear first hand all their guidance for Cait and anyone else who’s having difficulty navigating their current circumstances and is looking for a better way to experience them.
