Are you ready? Let’s jump right in!
1. Have compassion for yourself
According to psychotherapist Bill Ferrand, it is important to practice the art of self-forgiveness. This means acknowledging our past mistakes but not beating ourselves up. By taking this approach, we quickly dissolve negative energy that acts as a barrier towards positive change. All of us are human and none of us are perfect. Accept whatever lessons there are to be learned from your mistakes and move on. Remember the past cannot hurt you – unless you let it.
2. Set healthy boundaries
Dr. Tyler Fortman is a therapist that works with young adults who are just starting out in life. He believes that setting healthy boundaries around different activities is the ultimate way to demonstrate self-care. This in turn sends a message to the universe that says, “I care about myself enough to not inflict harm by doing too much, too fast.” Boundary setting allows room for the good things in life, which is karma’s way of letting you know it exists.
3. Own your issues
Therapist Alexandra DeWoskin encourages clients to own their issues and not shy away from them. This means taking responsibility for the chaos we can sometimes create. By recognizing our self-destructive patterns, we take remove their toxic powers. Good karma is attracted to mature souls who have the ability to stand in their truth.
4. Believe you are worthy of happiness
Counselor and coach, Costa Provis regularly encourages clients to believe they are truly worthy of happiness. One of the biggest barriers to good karma is negative self-talk. An offshoot of goodness is happiness. When we trust in the universe that we are capable of receiving and giving love, we invite the positive things such as wellness and prosperity.
5. Embrace gratitude
This final point will come as no surprise to you. According to Counselor Deb Klecha, the act of embracing gratitude invites cosmic waves of positive energy! When we focus on all that we have and the gifts we possess, we use a strength based approach to wellness. This means that we are able to give to another with all of our heart and not have expectations in return. Over the course of time, our empathic skills improve, fortified by good karma’s wisdom.
Good karma isn’t the stuff of new age hipsters. It’s a very real thing. If you want to invite more positive energy towards your direction, I encourage you to give a few of the previously mentioned suggestions a try.
