The 12 laws of karma can help you change your perspective on life and reflect on the way you may act, think, and feel.
Karma is like an energy that judges all your actions. A kind of invisible and transcendent force that takes place due to the behaviors that you have and that accumulates over time.
The laws of Karma tell that the forces you set in motion with the actions you perform will return to you at some point.
For karma, there is no bad luck, you are only receiving the consequences of the energy that you spread.
It’s not like you have good luck or not luck. You are responsible for everything that happens to you. In this way, it is possible to connect you with the Universe.
There are many factors to take into account to understand karma. Therefore, there are some laws that explain the different ways in which it impacts our existence.
Karma is made up of 12 fundamental laws. Often, karma is referring only to the law of cause and effect, but there are other 11 laws that you about to discover in this post.
1. The Law of Cause and Effect
This is the best-known law of the laws of karma. In essence, this law tells you that whatever you do in this world, be it good or bad will come back to you.
If you want peace, joy, and love, you need to give it to receive it.
It’s like the rule of sowing and reaping. If you sow all that you need, you will reap the benefit of your good deeds, as well as the consequences of bad deeds in due time. What do you want to harvest?
The energy you send comes back much more powerful.
2. The Law of Creation
Life requires your active participation. To have the life you want, you must work hard, create your own opportunities, and learn to say no. Don’t expect them to come to you alone. Take action!
Even small actions can start to make big changes. Don’t be just another spectator, you have to constantly take action.
The life you know has been created by the intentions of other people. You are one with the Universe, both internally and externally, your intentions determine the evolution of creation.
What is around you have a great impact on you. Make sure you are yourself and surround yourself with what you want to have in your life. With your active participation, opportunities will appear.
3. The Law of Humility
Acceptance is a virtue. You need to humbly accept the present and its circumstances, rather than forcing them to change or to be in denial.
What you do not want to accept will continue to happen to you.
Many people, having to deal with a negative person or situation, refuse to accept that something bad is happening to them.
By repressing this, it comes to manifest in other ways such as stress, depression, or physical pain. Don’t fall for this.
Accept that negativity is in your life for something, either to learn from it or develop some strength.
Focus on the positives in any negative situation and think about it. Negative situations make you mature and grow as people. It all adds up.
4. The Law of Growth
Growth is a process that requires time, discipline, and change. The only things you have control over are your thoughts, feelings, and actions. The change is first internal.
You usually think that to change your lives you must change your environment, your car, our job, or your professional career.
Equally, in personal relationships, that to be happy the other person must change in some aspect.
However, all that can happen, and your life maybe will remain the same.
Looking within you will be able to make the necessary adjustments to change the way you live.
If you fill your heart with joy, love, acceptance, and peace, you will only feel that no matter where you are or the people around you.
In this way, you will be able to grow. The real change will only happen when you make a firm decision.
5. The Law of Responsibility
Your life is based on your thoughts, words, and actions. All of this is a reflection of what is inside you. The same happens with everything you perceive in your life.
Observing what is happening to you will show you what is happening inside you.
When something bad happens to you, it is because something is wrong with you. Do not fall into the victim role or blame others.
It’s important to realize that everything that happens to you is a consequence of your actions, which you must face responsibly. Solve your internal conflicts to change the external.
If you want to put a positive spin on your life and those around you, be sensible and think before doing things. You are the only one responsible for your life.
6. The Law of Connection
Everything is connected to the Universe. Your past, present, and future too. You are connected in the past, present, and also the future.
Each step you take leads to the next and so on. As insignificant as it may seem, all steps are important for a task to get done.
Someone must do the initial work in order to reach the benefit of the final work.
An example of how this law works is medicine. This science has been in development for many years and thanks to those who took the initiative many years ago, people today are enjoying the benefits of modern medicine.
The same is true with technology. But it is not only about industries, it also applies in your life.
7. The Law of Focus
The law of focus is that you cannot do two things at the same time.
It refers to the idea that if you focus only on your spiritual values, it’s impossible to fall into negative thoughts such as anger, greed, impatience, and any other feelings that destroy your well-being.
Think about the last time you were totally focused on something that interested you.
Was there room for those negative emotions? Did you get distracted by anything else? Most likely not.
When your focus is clear, there is no time, interest, or energy to waste on other things.
Reaching this state, you manage to avoid bad thoughts that only damage your mind.
Focus on what you are passionate about and want to achieve. Go step by step, but always with your eyes on the goal.
8. The Law of Giving and Kindness
This law tells that everything you claim to believe must manifest itself in your actions. If you believe that something is true, at some point in your life you will have to prove it.
You will have to put into practice what you say you have learned. If you fail to do so, it means that you did not fully believe that truth.
Do you believe in love and respect? At some point in your life, you will have to show love and respect.
However, if you believe that all people are selfish, you will see how you will have to show your own selfishness.
Remember that to grow spiritually it is necessary to be willing to give without expecting to receive anything in return. This is the basis for developing good beliefs.
9. The Law of the Here and Now
Looking back prevents you from being in the here and now. Your body, mind, and soul can get stuck in the past thinking.
About previous relationships, fears, illnesses, conversations, and any kind of problems that have already taken place.
When these events are not fully processed, your mental, physical, or spiritual energy suffers. It is important and healthy to let go of your past to move on.
All those thoughts, memories, or behaviors from years ago, prevent you from having new ones.
Once you can forgive yourself for past things, you can change them.
If you do not direct positive energies into your present, your story will continue on a destructive path.
Maybe life will test you by bringing things from the past to your present.
But if you have already accepted and overcome it, it will not affect you at all.
Accept, forgive, and forget. It’s not easy but try to do it most fast, it’s in your best interest.
10. The Law of Change
In life, the only constant is change. Stories repeat themselves unless you learn the lessons of the past. In this way, you can make the decision to change your life.
You can choose not to repeat the story in different areas of your life such as professional, emotional, social, just decide. Only then you’ll learn to direct your path in a different direction.
In the end, it’s all about perspective. Being stagnant is a simple illusion. You have to accept change as part of life.
Nothing stays the same. When you try to avoid change, you fall into suffering.
Leaving your comfort zone can bring you physical or emotional discomfort, but this is how you learn to deal with change.
Accepting this suffering from beginning to end helps you to continue the process of change and free yourself from the discomfort that has occurred.
11. The Law of Patience and Reward
You can’t create something of value if you don’t have patience. Your reward is in persistence and hard work.
You must also bear in mind that the true reward is not the final goal, but the satisfaction that what was necessary to do to obtain the desired results.
This point is important to ask yourself what you want to achieve. You have to determine which path in life will make you feel passionate or comfortable with the decision made.
That which awakens that fire in you will give you the energy to advance daily. Without this, you will be easily demotivated and will not have the patience to follow the process.
When was the last time you were so passionate about your goal that you worked hard on your own initiative?
Achieving this effect will give you the patience to wait for the reward to come.
The more time and patience you put into something, the more rewarding the reward will be.
12. The Law of Courage and Inspiration
The true essence of this law tells how much interest and energy you put into the things you do, as it will return for your benefit.
If you don’t give meaning to your actions, the end result will be worthless. Only good intentions generate a positive impact.
Thus, the true value of something ends up being a direct result of the type of energy and interest that is put into it. Every individual contribution also contributes to the whole.
Those contributions without energy or interest do not impact or diminish you. You must act with the heart to obtain something valuable.
These 12 laws of karma will help you understand more about what is going on in your life and inside you. Each and every one of them is just as important.
Keep in mind that you are free in your way of acting, but that all the energy you give off will always return to you.
Before any action, ask yourself: will this give me a positive or negative return?
Karma will determine everything that you have to solve and face in life. Your actions, whether intentional or not, create good or bad karma.
With the experiences and keeping these laws in mind, you will be able to improve every day.
