One of the most frequent questions I receive in a session is about karma. “Does it always work?” people ask. “When can I expect it to come around?” If you’re holding onto anger, waiting for someone who hurt you to get their comeuppance, I want to shift your perspective. Karma is far more intricate and ultimately more empowering than you might think.

Karma: A Mirror for the Soul

Remember, the universe operates on the law of vibration. Energy attracts like energy. Karma is simply that law in action, ensuring balance and opportunities for soul growth. If you put love, kindness, and good intentions into the world, you’ll attract more of the same. But, if fear, doubt, and resentment are your offerings, prepare for life to reflect that back to you. Karma isn’t a vengeful force; it’s a mirror.

The Timing Isn’t Up to Us

It’s tempting to want the karmic scales to balance quickly. But the universe doesn’t operate on our timetable. Someone may seem to be getting away with hurtful actions, but rest assured, their soul lessons will arrive in due time. Whether it’s in this lifetime or the next, the universe never forgets a debt. However, that’s not where your focus should be.

Karma is a Call to Heal Yourself

The true beauty of karma is that it reveals where we’re lacking love – especially love for ourselves. Why did that betrayal sting so deeply? Perhaps it echoes an old wound of not feeling worthy. That job rejection? It might highlight a fear of not being good enough. Karma is your soul’s brilliant way of pinpointing the areas where healing is needed the most.

Karma, Forgiveness, and Freedom

Holding onto resentment, hoping karma will dish out punishment, will only poison you. Forgiveness doesn’t mean you excuse the other person’s actions; it means you free yourself from the anger that binds you to them. Forgiveness is your superpower in navigating karmic lessons.

So, Does Karma Always Come Back Around?

Yes, The law of cause and effect is absolute. However, remember these key points:

1. Karma is about your growth, not punishment for others.

2. The timing is orchestrated by a higher wisdom beyond our own.

3. Focus on raising your vibration, not fixating on others.

4. Forgiveness is the path to true freedom, even when justice seems slow.

Affirmation for You

Repeat this with me: The universe is always working in my favour. I trust in the process of growth. I release resentment and choose love.

Beautiful Soul, let karma be your guiding light, urging you ever closer to becoming the fullest expression of your loving, powerful self.

With endless love, Claire
