In keeping with the season, I’ve decided to talk about ‘spring cleaning for the soul’. Given that our soul is an eternal entity, you can well imagine how much unwanted baggage, or karma, can accumulate over the course of numerous incarnations. This karma can hinder your ascension process if you do not release it and incorporate the knowledge you have accrued from previous lifetimes.
So what is karma, exactly?
Karma refers to the education of the soul. Earth is essentially a learning laboratory. We come here to experience diversity, challenges, and obstacles, all of which are designed to help us expand All That Is. We originate from a state of perfection where nothing changes – after all, how does one improve on perfection? – and expand our consciousness into lower realms where perfection has not yet been achieved so that we can experience growth and change. During this process, we encounter many other souls who are similarly expanding reality through their experiences. The conflicts that we experience come from our interaction with others. During said conflicts, we make choices and we observe the consequences. Sometimes those lessons take longer to unfold and so that learning opportunity is logged away for future reference. There comes a point, whether here on Earth or on the Other Side, that we experience the full breadth of those logged lessons. If one is unable to see the results of his actions while still here in the physical dimension, he will simulate the experience on the Other Side during his life review. If that process reveals an important lesson missed, he may choose to come back to Earth in a subsequent incarnation in order to learn the lesson. Even with time off in between incarnation for healing and reflection, our Earthly baggage tends to get heavier with each incarnation. This is why we need to periodically practice karmic release.
How then do we release karma?
1) Set your intention
As with anything you desire in life, you must first intend it to happen. Intention is the act of wishing something into existence. So, you must first intend that karmic clearing or releasing take place.
2) Ask your angels for help –
To do this, simply say, “Angels of karma, I would like to release everything that does not serve my highest purpose. Please help me to clear my karma, while retaining the lessons learned, in all timelines.” Be open to whatever ensues and follow your instincts. Your angels will guide you through this process.
3) Moderate the process (as needed)
As issues crop up, whether they stem from this lifetime or previous ones, trust that you are safe and protected. If you feel panicky, request that your angels slow down the process of karmic release. You set the pace. It’s helpful to remember that you accumulated this karma over the course of many lifetimes, so you’re not going to be able to release it all at once.
4) Release the pain and fear
Many of your karmic lessons were gained through unpleasant situations so you may be faced with unpleasant emotions. These need to be released before you can extract the lessons contained within. Ask Archangel Michael to clear your energy field and to cut your cords in all directions of time, and then envision yourself handing the bundle of toxic emotions up to him for safekeeping.
5) Find the lesson
The issues that bubble to the surface may feel familiar or alien, depending on how recently or distantly you encountered them. In any event, they all contain important lessons for your soul. Ask yourself, no matter how odd the issue may seem to you, “What is the lesson I need to learn in order to release this issue?”, then trust the information that comes to you whether by inspired ideas, feelings, sounds or sights.
6) Own the lesson
Ask your angels to help you incorporate the lessons retrieved into your present life. As you release the fear and blockages surrounding this issue, you effectively heal that issue in all timelines. You also profit from the knowledge accrued in previous incarnations, and you my even bring latent talents or interests to the surface.
7) Repeat (as necessary)
Obviously you’re not going to release in one session every karmic issue that you’ve accrued. This is a process that needs to be repeated regularly until you feel lighter and freer than air. This process will enable you to effectively leave behind the polarity of the third dimension and ascend to the higher, heart-based states of consciousness, so it’s well worth the effort.
