People who don’t understand its true meaning often throw around the word “karma” as a negative term. But in my experience, karma works both ways.
Karma is a Sanskrit word that denotes the cycle of cause and effect, meaning each action a person takes in life will affect him or her at some point in the future. This rule also applies to a person’s thoughts and words.
You have so much power in your life to create good and bad experiences based on your own words and actions. And while, you probably try to do your best in any given moment, sometimes “your best” causes pain and heartache to another human being.
Most individuals have made poor choices at the expense of someone else’s feelings that they’ve later regretted. Sometimes our own needs get in the way of what we know in our hearts is the right thing to do.
The Universe will bring back whatever acts you committed or feeling you caused in another person. This karmic boomerang helps teach you how your actions impact others and to be more compassionate.
