Ascension, Lords of Karma & Personal Destiny – Quick Fixes Don’t Exist & You Can’t Cheat Fate
While the concept of being able to free one's self from challenging karma by "asking ‘The Lords of Karma' for release..." is certainly appealing, we ask, what sort of karma does one expect to be able to dodge using this method?
Ongoing conflict with a family member? Noisy neighbors? Habits relating to over-indulgence?
Or, perhaps one expects to be able to erase much more significant karma and be released from the following, for example: physical handicaps or serious illness; moderate income with lots of work and little free time to learn other skills; the demanding burden of family members, like problem children or an ill parent who needs your constant support; being financially trapped with a spouse who does not give you what you want and who won't change; or repeatedly attracting unfaithful and hurtful love interests.
One must first identify their personal karma if they truly want to know that they really did eliminate it without balancing it directly. How do you know it is your karma in the first place? We find comprehensive astrology and numerology to be the most effective way to measure karma and its timing.
From our perspective, if significant karma really was removed from one's life, it would be identifiable in the charts before it was removed, as important life circumstance and events are consistently symbolized by comprehensive charting patterns.
What we are saying is, all too often, we hear of people talking about "erasing karma" (often times they refer to future circumstances that they claim are "just possibilities"). In all the cases we've reviewed, we've asserted that it wasn't their karma to experience in the first place after finding zero indications of the said "karma" in the charts, so they really didn't erase anything.
We are very interested in hearing about karma that anyone claims to have successfully bypassed without having to directly balance. We are constantly searching for evidence that would challenge or invalidate our theory that everyone's life is full of unalterable karmic events and circumstances. So far, we have found none.
For the record, as we state on our websites, we contend that at least 75% of the key themes, events, circumstances, and happenings in everyone's life are predestined. We also feel that everyone has their own unique "karmic framework," within which only the desired outcomes that fit within those boundaries will be able to be manifested. Yes, the universe "always says yes," and yes there are "unlimited possibilities" in this universe, but only on a soul level as you plan your next life before you incarnate into this dimension, where spiritual and karmic laws can't be compromised.
We admire those who strive to heal and improve themselves, their relationships, and other parts of their lives, but we would like to remind everyone that many of the complications and challenges of life serve a higher purpose. It would be nice if you could just erase what you don't like, but then that would defeat the primary purpose of being here.
It goes without saying that we feel the "Lords of Karma" concept is a myth. You are the only lord of your own karma. Most, if not all respected experts in the area of reincarnation, karma, past life regression, and life- between-life, based on years of unbiased research, agree.
We are disappointed that some promote the "Lords of Karma" concept because it encourages avoiding taking responsibility for one's actions. No one gets a "get out of jail free" card, no matter how much they pray, lie, deny, or bargain.
Ultimately, everything you do, say and intend will come back to you.
Furthermore, nobody "grants" you "ascension" or anything else and a talented writer saying something is so doesn't make it so. We find promoting such baseless concepts irresponsible and frivolous.
You can't live healthfully on a 100% junk food diet just by asking the Lords of Health to help you bypass health challenges.
You can't be fluent in Japanese simply by asking the Lords of the Japanese Language to give you that ability.
You can't sober up after downing 5 stiff drinks just by asking the Lords of Sobriety to free you of intoxication.
You do have free will to accept your karma, both the good and the bad, to forgive yourself and others, which will make it easier to deal with, and to react positively with unconditional love to the conditions and events in your life. But there are no simple wave-your-magic-wand solutions, despite what many New Age promoters cheerfully advocate.
