How do you know you're in the midst of a Karmic lesson and the clearing of it? Feelings that arise that do not proportionally fit the trigger event. Are you feeling some event or situation with someone that is so emotionally strong that you cannot fathom why you have such strong emotions that they are almost uncontrollable and you cannot rationally explain them.
The first step is to acknowledge that you have the right to feel these emotions. But, now here comes the kicker, you must acknowledge that you've have allowed this karmic situation into your experience. You are the ultimate creator of your world and reality.
As a next step, you can delve into why now, why the emotions and how to release not only the feelings but the Karmic pattern. You must get to a place of neutrality and to do that you have to be grounded. Water is a wonderful element to help ground you, by taking a bath using bath salts with perhaps essential oils this allow you to find a place of relaxation and a cessation of the turbulent thoughts. You may also just out in nature take a walk in a park, or commune with the birds in your back yard, step out onto the balcony and see the sky and breathe deeply.
Once you reach a point of neutrality, you can then have a more objective view. It also helps to listen to soothing music or someone's loving and compassionate voice. There are many videos that you can watch that just by listening to the comforting voice or sound it will help you calm down and enter a place of non-resistance.
Sharing with friends where you feel total acceptance, love and harmony is also a great way of lifting yourself back from melancholy to neutralism. Now is the time to see things from a different vantage point or perspective.
Let's define the situation your feelings are mirroring, is it betrayal, jealousy - is this from another lifetime and dimension? It is not reflecting what is happening now, instead of seeing the situation in a competitive manner (they have and you do not), turn it around to see it in a cooperative manner. Know that if someone achieves something then you can too.
Turn now to gratitude, focus on you, and all the good things coming into your life, people who love you, great opportunities in your life. Open your eyes - do not worry what the other person does or does not do - that is their path and perhaps it is meant for you to be parallel so that you push each other to open and look for your unique perspective and information.
Do what feels right for you, not based on what others are doing. You are in the same vibration that's why you have attracted that person and situation. They are not taking from you, you in a sense are giving your power away. Hold your own power, work with it, flow, discover, create, explore - Let go of your fear - allow your abundance to come - open the door to prosperity and step inside your place of abundance and rejoice in all that given to you.
Blessings in light and love on this path,
