Each of us comes into this life with a three-fold intention: fulfilling karmic contracts, supporting our soul group and working on personal karma.
“Think of karma as ribbons that draw together experiences and weave a distinct pattern that is the product of many lifetimes. Remember also that those ribbons cause you to be in specific places and to meet certain people, sometimes to your great surprise.”
Personal karma is something specific that we have chosen to work on throughout our lifetime. It could be addiction (to food, substances, abusive people, etc), self-image, issues of worthiness or vanity, poverty or abundance – but always, self-karma involves the extremes of an experience.
So, perhaps in one lifetime you struggled with excessive weight. Now you might have chosen a body type that struggles instead to keep weight on and all that attending issues with that experience.
Another choice might be to experience the opposite of what is considered “normal” in the society into which you have incarnated. This involves cultivating an incredible amount of self love and humor, as well as embodying the strength that comes from being judged as an outsider and accepting yourself anyway.
Ultimately, the key is to see everything as an opportunity to learn and grow, to demonstrate the ability to be authentic and consistent in your daily life, to be kind to yourself and others and honor all life as sacred.
Today my intention is to confidently take risks for the sake of my souls evolution.
