How to Recognize If You Have a Bad Karma and What to Do to Heal It

///How to Recognize If You Have a Bad Karma and What to Do to Heal It

Do you feel like you may have a bad karma?

Karma (a concept taken from Indian spirituality) is the repetition of certain events with the purpose to heal and change you spiritually. The effect of past actions is unavoidable and sometimes a situation can repeat itself over and over again until you finally understand what you need to heal or change about yourself.

You will continue to attract the same negative energy through people or environment until you discover the weak area of your personality, of your spirit or of your actions.

For example, you have recently changed your job. It is a different office, different people, but the tense atmosphere and connection with your co-workers are similar to the previous job. The same struggle and lack of improvement can appear in your personal relationships: you have constant arguments with your partner, your issues with the family members seem to appear now and again – sometimes, for the same reason that occurred in the past.

So all these familiar and repetitive vibrational situations that seem to never break through, try to show you that a change is necessary in order for you to heal from the past and move forward to where you want to be.

Here are a few steps which should give you an insight into how to heal your bad karma:

1. Recognize the Karma

Wherever you will go or whoever you will meet, you will face the same situation under different circumstances. For example, you tend to argue when somebody has a different opinion than you which usually leads to heated arguments and you do not think there is anything wrong with being strongly opinionated.

This type of situations you create keeps people away from you or they might find it difficult to be themselves around you. You feel isolated in a way and you wonder why you cannot create a stable friendship.

This is one of the karmic obstacles that can prevent you from evolving spiritually, but a karmic obstacle can be anything repetitive that happens or you do in your life.

2. Be awake

In order to recognize your bad karma, you need to be awake, in touch with your spiritual needs and realize who or what your obstacles are. Sometimes we allow people to hurt us, we allow certain situations to repeat or we are simply not fully aware of our strengths. Why? Because we are not spiritually awake; we let things happen without being in charge of our karma.

3. Make a change

Once you realize the reason why bad karma keeps repeating in your life, the next step is to make a change. If you have unhealthy relationships and there is no longer a way to save them, give up on people who hurt you.

If you understood where the mistake in your personality or action is, make a change, be kinder, be forgiving, be calm or be more confident, be tougher. Put into practice what you wish to happen, define what you expect from yourself and from your life or simply apply the suggestions that life makes you through repetitive sounds, words or situations.

4. Control your attitude…..

Your attitude about life, people or situation is sent out in the world and it will come back at you. Be relaxed, be positive, because what you give is what you get. Any negative thought you have about yourself or the world should be changed in positive thinking.

 5. …and your reaction

The way we think or feel about something is reflected in our behavior. Certain situations repeat in our lives in order to help us change the way we deal with people around us, with objects or with the environment.

A classic example of bad karma, suggested by New Ager David Isaacson is the family connection: the man yells at his wife, who yells at her son, who kicks the dog who bites the father. If you control your thinking, you control your reaction and therefore, you control your karma.

Karma is not a punishment but a teacher. Be responsible and awake, try to recognize your obstacle and remove it. As long as there are unresolved or unchanged energies in your life, you will not break the circle.

If you feel that you deal with bad karma or you have managed to change it, please share or debate with us!

    I am being hit with a lot of things😔 I’m 35, the last relationship I got out of at 28. At that time I saw the cycle and I knew if I wanted to avoid that pain again I needed to change. Fast forward to know, I have spent several years in therapy so far, I read, I use a microscope to examine my behaviors.. but the first time I find someone I care about, I did everything I had done in the past all over again.. I thought it was that I needed to learn how to love myself. Once achieved obviously I can love someone else right?? It turns out my real issue is abandonment. I went from creating re-abandonment through my fears and unreasonable expectations of my partner, to just straight up avoiding relationships all together, and back to driving them away same as before. This is all fresh, we quit talking almost 2 weeks ago. I pushed and pushed just like before and got the same exact result… Since learning from this I have done so much, writing down everything I think and feel so I can share it with my therapist and get through this so I can move on. I joined a gym to help me vent and feel better about my body that I let go more than I wished I had. I found a abandonment support group that is going to help and teach me tools to fight the fear that comes the second I care about someone.. I have to learn how to reassure myself rather than expecting it from my lover, or anyone from that matter.. its hurts, My heart is so heavy, but now I can grow and begin this process and make sure it never happens again.. I genuinely loved this one, the most perfect soul I have ever met. I felt like I lost my actual soulmate 😭 It’s hard not to hate myself these days, but all I can do is my best, and that is exactly what I am doing..

      Hi. Don’t hate yourself, the whole point is to love and accept yourself, then abandonment issues disappear. We have many soulmates and it’s not always ‘our destiny’ to be together. Some of them come to change our life and then they are gone. Maybe that was the purpose of this last guy, to make a lasting change in you? Best wishes 🙂

    Sorry, but bad karma is a punishment. I think of suicide all the time to rid myself of it. Why? Because I can’t succeed in my life, regardless of what I try. I am broke despite working. I am kind to people. I’m not a jerk. I pay my bills responsibly. I take responsibility for my behavior and my life, and none of that matters. None of it.

    Bad karma is not a teacher. It is punishment.

    it’s true we got to change our behavior..if we don’t go mainstream with our surrounding, just be silent and don’t do much talk and try to not says what’s in your head..yes we are nice people but that won’t matters..they need 2 faces that can bland in and be suffer (poor) like they do

    Hellos. I think I was suffering that too. I am currently looking for a way to be a better person . I was born one but life changes ;we grow. At end, it affects us all. But anyway, best wishes.

    I don’t know why I’m living this tough life, I will never know why I have a so bad karma. It seems that all my life is about limitation. My family always limited me with judgements and punishments despite the fact I was a kind child, my physics healt is limited because of some sort of unknown genetic disorder. My comunication with people is limited, so my social life is limited too. My self confidence is very limited. Now I’m an adult and I feel that my life is limited by a job I never felt comfortable at, a boss who doesn’t like me and is very unsipathetic and smacks down my just limited self confidence, and finally a low wage that limits my economic indipendence.
    What can this life teach to me? I feel so uncomfortable.

    I need help as well from the beginning of my life it’s been tough. Coming from a poor family. As I became a teenager I was angry ,violate. Been in and out of lock of facilities. When I finally got out I was different kinder Will give the shirt off my back. Head two daughters work hard to provide for them still struggling. Kids father murdered. Income still the same 10 years later . Bad with love. They turn they’re backs on me quick. It’s like I’m spinning my wheels. I’m a very sweet person forgiven ppl that hurt me. Still unappreciated. Family talks about me. I still show love. All my friends gone. I’m alone 90 percent of my life besides my kids being with me.
    Oldest daughter seems not too like me. I break my neck for her. Again I never have money got more bills then I have money. But yet I get up and go to work everyday. Like a responsible adult every car I get . Gets repossessed. Man I tell you . Crazy because I am a honest person. I don’t steal. I never try and get over on no one.
    Life is trying to tear me apart I am 34 years old. Still having trouble being successful. Everything I touch crumbles. People see me I’m always smiling given good advise they have no clue how hurt in the inside I am!6
