From our inbox to you: From Dawn James: Part 3 on “How to Clear your Karma:

Hi Everyone..


I hope you enjoyed part 1 and 2 of this 3-part series about ‘how to clear karma’ and found it insightful and useful.

TELL ME- which of the 6 karma clearing tips resonated with you the most? EMAIL me!
 
WHAT IS KARMA

Karma is like a scale which we carry with us for a lifetime or many lifetimes. The scale can be as light as a feather or as heavy as a brick wall. The weight of the scale is affected by the quality of your thoughts and actions and this in turn creates karmic patterns in your life. The saying: what goes around comes around, applies to karma.

HOW KARMA AFFECTS US

Do you consider your life to be easy or simple? Are you living in the flow? Or do you see your life full of challenges, stagnation or disappointments? If the later description resonates with you, then I want you to remember this:  you are influencing the karmic patterns in your life- both favorable and unfavorable patterns.

The good news: karma is not fixed or frozen – it’s mutable. Why? Because energy is mutable and the energy of your thoughts and actions can be changed – by you!

KARMA CLEARING TIP #5

The Company you keep
 
Some people build us up, while some people tear us down.  I want you to take a good look at the people in your life, at home, at work, your social circles. Which category do they fall into? 
 
How to Associate with Positive People
(Excerpt from my book RAISE YOUR VIBRATION, TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE)

Step 1: Identify
Make a list of positive people you know from work, relatives, schoolmates and people from religious, recreational and other social organizations.

Step 2: Interact                         
Try to spend time with them. Whether it’s a phone call, attending an event together or just hanging out, you will find positive people are confident and supportive and have an optimistic outlook on life. Their positive vibrations will be pleasantly infectious. When you surround yourself with people who have positive energy and are happy and well balanced, you too are more likely to be happy and well balanced.

Step 3: Reflect
Take time to reflect on the traits and characteristics that these positive people in your life possess. Reflect on how they respond to life’s ups and downs. Learn from their experiences and wisdom to assist you in handling situations that arise in your own life.
 
When you make subtle changes in your own expectations/attitude to perceive the world in a more positive manner, you alter your vibrational frequency so that you become more attuned to receive positive and higher vibrations, and subsequently, you draw more positive and harmonious experiences into your life. This is the essence of the third vibrational law: Changes in mental attitude and thoughts can affect the vibrational frequency of yourself, others you interact with and your experiences.

If you are able to walk away, say a simple farewell then its time to do that. If its not that simple then find a way to honestly tell them how you feel, or in what ways you can work together to make the relationship healthier, better or more satisfying.
 
In my opinion, if a relationship is toxic and causing more harm than good- then its time to leave. Remember when I explained in part #1 ‘ how karma affects us”: the quality of your relationships also affects the quality of your karma. Choose the company you keep wisely and consciously.

KARMA CLEARING TIP #6
Heal-thy-self
Healthy Self

What activities do you do or daily rituals do you practice to nourish your Spirit or feed your Soul?
 
Here are some quick tips to cultivate positive karma

  • seize opportunities to create good health and well being
  • hug your inner child every now and then, greet them with a smile
  • feel blessed for what you have
  • feel thankful for all the wonderful gifts and skills and talents you possess
  • perform random acts of kindness to people you know and don’t know
  • treat others like you would like to be treated
  • when you feel it, say it: ‘ thank you’, ‘ I appreciate that”, “ I am happy to have you in my life”

 
And always remember this:  you have the power to influence and create good karma through your conscious actions and conscious thoughts.

Being Conscious
 
We are what we eat
We are what we drink
We are what we say
We are what we think.
With that in mind, I say to mankind:
Conscious eating
Conscious drinking
Conscious speaking and
Conscious thinking.
Conscious Being!

Part 2 of 3 “How to Clear your Karma” with Dawn James…

How to Clear your Karma –
Part 2 of 3

I hope you enjoyed part 1 of this 3-part series about ‘how to clear karma’. It’s a topic that has fascinated me since my awakening in 2003.  I hope you find it insightful and useful on your path to self-development and personal growth.
 
WHAT IS KARMA
 
Karma is like a scale which we carry with us for a lifetime or many lifetimes. The scale can be as light as a feather or as heavy as a brick wall. The weight of the scale is affected by the quality of your thoughts and actions and this in turn creates karmic patterns in your life. The saying: what goes around comes around, applies to karma.
 
HOW KARMA AFFECTS US
 
Do you consider your life to be easy or simple? Are you living in the flow? Or do you see your life full of challenges, stagnation or disappointments? If the later description resonates with you, then I want you to remember this:  you are influencing the karmic patterns in your life- both favorable and unfavorable patterns.

The good news: karma is not fixed or frozen – it’s mutable. Why? Because energy is mutable and the energy of your thoughts and actions can be changed – by you!
 
KARMA CLEARING TIP #3

Making good choices
 
When you were a toddler you put virtually everything in your mouth. As you grew older and wiser you realized some objects were digestible and some were not. You learned to make better choices.  Now as an adult you may decide to stop smoking or eat better or focus on some other positive behaviour. These good choices you make help fuel your ability to create good karma.
 
I remember working in an office where a few employees loved to gossip. They never had a kind word to say about anyone. One day one of the gossips came by my desk to spread her verbal poison. I stopped her with 3 simple gestures. I placed my hands over my ears, then over my eyes and finally over my mouth. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. The coworker frowned and walked away from my desk. Mission accomplished!  I made a conscious choice not to get involved in negative behaviour- which in turn fuels good karmic patterns in my life.

Be conscious of the choices you make – and try to make the most optimal choice when you can.
 
KARMA CLEARING TIP #4

Forgiveness: lighten your heart, mind and soul
 
Please repeat after me: There are no perfect parents, there are no perfect children and there is no perfect boss!

Are you holding onto emotional baggage such as past hurts, blame, resentments, anger or shame?

In some situations we simply cannot bring ourselves to forgive the other person, but in every situation we need to find the strength and courage to forgive ourselves. Why? Because if we do not forgive ourselves, then we create division within ourselves. That division or inner turmoil is a perfect breeding ground for negative self talk, self sabotage and other destructive karmic patterns. One of the most powerful ways to overcome this inner turmoil and negative emotions is by forgiving ourselves.
 
Here is an excerpt of my first book ‘Raise your Vibration, Transform your Life’ entitled:
 
The Vibration of Forgiveness
 

  • You lighten your heart by removing the heavy weight of the negative experiences(s).
  • You lighten your speech when you stop complaining or accusing others of being responsible for your experiences.
  • You lighten your emotions by releasing feelings of anger, frustration, spite and pain and make room for peace, joy and love.
  • You are free! Forgiveness frees the forgiver. You are no longer enslaved to the circumstances you once thought were controlled by someone else or external forces. You are free to live and to love.
  • Lastly, you gain strength by recognizing your ability to withstand any circumstance or experience—to learn from it—and move forward with your life.

From our inbox to you…. from Dawn and Ian James on KARMA and their fabulous Costa Rica retreat in October 2016

SGC Admin: From our inbox to you from Dawn and Ian James: Dawn’s 3 part newsletter on KARMA & Dawn and Ian’s fabulous relaxing retreat in Costa Rica this October…

 

This newsletter if the first in a 3-part series about ‘how to clear karma’. I hope you find it insightful and useful on your path to self-development and personal growth. We all experience challenges or difficulty at one point or another in our lives- some more than others. But the one thing I have witnessed and know for sure is we do have the ability to influence our karma in a positive way.

WHAT IS KARMA

Karma is like a scale which we carry with us for a lifetime or many lifetimes. The scale can be as light as a feather or as heavy as a brick wall. The weight of the scale is affected by the quality of your thoughts and actions and this in turn creates karmic patterns in your life. The saying: what goes around comes around, applies to karma.

HOW KARMA AFFECTS US

Do you consider your life to be easy or simple? Are you living in the flow? Or do you see your life full of challenges, stagnation or disappointments? If the later description resonates with you, then I want you to remember this:  you are influencing the karmic patterns in your life- both favorable and unfavorable patterns.

For example, if you are the type of person who has difficulty saying ‘no’ and you tend to agree to things you really do not want to do or like to do, then you are creating a pattern of resentment in your life.

Alternatively, if you tend to look for the good in others and try to see the positive side of a situation- even a difficult situation, then you are creating a pattern of confidence and personal triumph in your life.

The good news: karma is not fixed or frozen – it’s mutable. Why? Because energy is mutable and the energy of your thoughts and actions can be changed – by you!

KARMA CLEARING TIP #1
Observation without judgement

Observe how others express good patterns and bad patterns of behavior. When you recognize bad patterns it’s because you’ve already experienced that in this life or a past life. You have learned the karmic lesson already.  Learn to observe others with a compassionate eye, as they are still learning their karmic lesson at their own pace. Observe without judgement, without attachment.

KARMA CLEARING TIP #2
Self Observation and Intention

At the end of each day, take a few minutes to reflect on what went right or what went wrong this day. If you are unsettled by a bad behavior or bad experiences – ask yourself what the consequences were of the bad experience. What would you do if a similar situation arises again? How could you act differently, speak differently or think differently. Set an intention to act better next time. Visualize the new positive behavior- allow this vision to imprint in your mind.

Hi There… 🙂


Lao Tzu is the author of– Tao Te Ching.  It contains many words of wisdom about life, introspection, reflection, personal discovery and natural laws.

Here are just 7 of my favorite life changing lessons expressed by Lao Tzu- along with my personal insights/reflections on each of them.

1. The world is won by those who let it go. 

“By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond the winning.” ~ Lao Tzu
“Therefore the Master acts without doing anything and teaches without saying anything. Things arise and she lets them come; things disappear and she lets them go. She has but doesn’t possess, acts but doesn’t expect. When her work is done, she forgets it. That is why it lasts forever.” ~ Lao Tzu
“He who clings to his work will create nothing that endures.” ~ Lao Tzu

To me this means compassionate detachment. When you give without expecting anything in return, then you are able to freely give – from the heart.

2. Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.” ~ Lao Tzu

One of the most profound statements is : Know Thyself .
I think it takes great courage to look at yourself with honesty and great awareness to see the many characteristics we possess.

3. At the center of your being you have the answer to all life’s questions.

“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” ~ Lao Tzu

This statement really resonates with my motto: All you need is within you

4. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
“If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.” ~ Lao Tzu
“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” ~ Lao Tzu

Being/Feeling rich or poor is a state of mind. I have seen kids playing in the streets with a ball – full of joy and having fun, and I have also seen children with rooms full of gidgets and gadgets complaining to their parents ‘‘I am bored”. It’s all a state of mind. You are as rich as you feel.

5. Non-being is the greatest joy.

“Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.” ~ Lao Tzu

I read this a few times and reflected on how we are socialized to give ourselves ‘labels’ – such as mother, husband, writer, sister, son, poet, and practitioner. But have you ever stopped and asked yourself – who are you without the ‘labels’? Who are you without your name (which you were given by the way).  Non being to me means to remember your true essence , without the ‘labels’, hats  you wear or roles that you play.  Just be.

6. If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to.

“If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve.” ~ Lao Tzu

This statement reminds me of a Native saying: ” when you live in the natural giving and receiving of life, stress does not exist. “ When we allow things to unfold and flow freely, without resistance, without strife- knowing that nothing lasts forever, we reduce inner turmoil, anxiety and suffering.

7. Be good to all.

“Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.” ~ Lao Tzu

Kindness can be contagious! By choosing to be good, and speak and think positively, we can create a ripple affect (laws of vibration) to influence others to do the same. Try it and see the results!

SGC Admin: From our inbox to you from Author and Vibrational teacher Dawn James on keeping our planet and ourselves healthy.

Hi (SGC)

I recently read an article by David Suzuki which reminded me that even the smallest thing can have a big impact on our lives, our health and the health of our planet.

Do you use personal products such as body scrubs, facial scrubs or toothpaste containing microbeads? 

The tiny bits of plastic, less than five millimetres in diameter, are used as scrubbing agents. The problem is they are turning up everywhere, especially in oceans, lakes, and along shorelines and they are not biodegradable.

Research by the 5 Gyres Institute found an average of 43,000 beads per square kilometre in the Great Lakes, with concentrations averaging 466,000 near cities.

Love Who you A personal lesson:  When I was in my early 20’s I remember trying to please everyone- my family, my friends, my boss – and pretty soon I was feeling miserable and burnt out. Why? Because I had forgotten about ‘me’ in the process.

One day I was speaking with my great aunt about how I was feeling, and she said something to me that has stuck in my mind ever since.. She said “The most important and longest relationship you will ever have, is with YOU!”

In that moment, I realized if I was not happy with myself, then nothing else, outside of how I felt would make me happy. As I got older I realized I needed to ‘love and honor’ who I am – big bones, curly hair, and all!

I created an audio program called LOVE and HONOR YOURSELF to share my lessons and teachings with others. It’s intended to inspire you to live a more loving, confident and authentic life. Save 50% this month. Read full description and   CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

In the Spring of 2013, 10 years after my awakening, I found the courage to share that experience in a recording which I later called One Path to Ascension.  In this audio I share my understanding of the Harmonic Concordance, Harmonic Convergence, Frequency, Spiritual evolution and the lessons I learned from my ”awakening’
