By taking positive action, we can help clear and balance out the negative actions. Here are 10 things you can do to help clear your karma.
1. PRACTICE RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
Doing good deeds (no matter how small) without seeking anything in return is a great way to clear your karma. Have no expectations, and just spread kindness.
2. CULTIVATE A SENSE OF EMPATHY
The ability to put yourself in another person’s shoes is healing for you, the other person and the planet as a whole. It helps you recognize that we are all one.
3. AVOID PLACING BLAME OR JUDGMENT
Blame and judgment just create more negative karma. Although you may not agree with or approve of others’ actions, it is ultimately their experience. Don’t add to your karma by getting tangled up in their drama.
4. ASK FOR FORGIVENESS
Asking for forgiveness helps to release you and the other person from karma. Even writing an unsent letter asking for forgiveness can help.
Just as asking for forgiveness frees up karma, so does bestowing forgiveness. You can write an unsent forgiveness letter to someone who has wronged you.
6. MAKE A GRATITUDE LIST
Be thankful for what you have, including your challenges. It shows wisdom and maturity, which balances out karma.
7. BE AWARE OF YOUR INTENTIONS
Be mindful of the intentions behind your actions. Are they honorable or manipulative? One leads to freedom while the other leads to more negative karma.
Meditation, contemplation and self-study all aid your growth and awareness, which can help enlighten you and release the suffering of karma. Learn about the violet flame meditation. It is a particularly effective tool for clearing karma.
9. STOP BEING A PEOPLE PLEASER
Being a people pleaser and worrying what others think distances you from your authentic self. It only creates resentment and ultimately, more karma.
10. BRING JOY AND BEAUTY INTO YOUR LIFE
When you bring joy and beauty into your life, you uplift your spirit. Those positive vibrations help alleviate karmic suffering not only for you, but also for everyone on the planet.
