What is Karma? How do we change it?

Karma is often viewed as an Oriental concept that entails past lives in which good and bad actions result in good and bad luck. This is usually understood to mean that if I hurt someone in a past life, then I will have bad luck in this life.

However, karma is actually one’s consciousness. Our consciousness is a field that exudes a certain level of energy. This field tends to attract certain situations and opportunities and engender decisions that are typical of that level of consciousness. Thus it might be more accurate to say that karma is the result of one’s consciousness – which includes thoughts, decisions, actions, conditions and repercussions – all of which have far reaching interactions and consequences. Therefore, our thoughts have infinitely more impact than we realize.

The Basic Tenets of Karmic Law are:

  • Aspiration and desire become capacities.
  • Repeated thoughts become tendencies.
  • Will to perform become actions.
  • Painful experiences become conscience.

These may apply in positive or negative ways. Since we are influenced by our consciousness and our subconsciousness, karma becomes the programming that we have created in our current life.

Thus, karma represents the sum total of the causes one has set into motion in our current life. This action and reaction creates our patterns for this life. These patterns can be changed and rearranged purposely through preplanned deeds, acts and attitudinal changes.

We have free will and choices. Karma can work in one’s favor or against one, depending on the intent and also the attitude of the person.

Do you often wonder why you continue to create and attract the same situation and the same types of people over an over again? This is known as karmic debt, an experience one must go through to learn a lesson one did not learn, to compensate for something one should or should not have done, or to complete something left undone. Ultimately, and most importantly, karmic debt is for soul progression – perfection – into ascension.

Nations as well as individuals all have their karmic existence. In fact, this is a karmic Universe in which the Law of Attraction, which states that you attract that which you think about, is the major karmic learning tool. There is simply nothing that can happen without a reason – thus there is perfect order in the Universe, though it may not be clear to us due to our consciousness. The higher the energetic vibration, the clearer the reasons for occurrences, and the higher and stronger our field of karmic energy.

Because energy follows thought, one’s karma is inextricably bound with one’s thoughts. To change one’s karma, and to raise one’s consciousness – thus living with a higher energetic state of karma – there must be the dedication to become that which one wants to be or experience.

Because we are the essence of the Divine, this is a journey of that divine part of us to remember who we are. Karmically, we are all destined to rejoin our Source, the Divine Power of the Universe.

"I have found only one intuitive counselor who is free of negative energies and embodies positives qualities. Marcella Zinner is pure of heart and sound of mind. Her ethics are unquestionable and her accuracy is uncanny.

She is funny, she is kind, she is practical and… she is gentle.

Her readings are full of love and free of ego. She is truly a gifted wise woman to whom I and many shall be eternally grateful."

"My experience with Marcella was extraordinary, if that is the right word to use, because it was beyond that. Her intuitive reading was uncannily accurate and precise. It was as if she knew my entire life history.

The best part of all I did not have to say a word much of the time or answer a lot of questions. It was the most relaxing session I had encoun-tered. You can literally feel the love with her."

"Marcella has obtained more positive results in my life for me than all other methods I have ever tried. I credit her with getting me out of depression and over overwhelm. Her intuitive and practical life experiences make her an outstanding life coach in coaching ones personal insights as well as giving one insight into the opposite sex and how we can better work together for a happier life.

I started out in deep depression and now have a life filled with happiness, love abundance and calm.

Marcella uses her skills to help you get away form the stressors of life and get you focused so you find a life of a higher purpose."

"Marcella Zinner creates a space that is safe, loving, and honoring of my spirit. My spiritual growth goes through major spurts when I have sessions with Marcella. I seek Marcella for counsel for my health, my family, my business, past life regression, communication with my spirit guides, and growth, to name a few.

I trust her implicitly, not only because she is so accurate without me saying much, but because of her loving caring spirit that opens her arms to me and lets me know I can be everything I choose to be."

"Dear Marcella,

You may not remember my husband and me from our visit this past May, but afterward I came away with such an uplifted feeling of hope and happiness that I am compelled to write to you and tell you thank-you.

 You were able to give my husband and myself the chance to talk with our son in spirit and in a manor of speaking – able to say goodbye, let go of the great sadness and to know that our son is in the rapture of angels.

I cannot tell you how much that has meant to us. You have helped us with understanding the loss and, for me; the ability to let go of my ever consuming guilt. 

Even though there are moments of sadness and grieving for all the “could have beens”, I know that he is indeed, in a truly good place ~ because of you.
