The definition of karma is the destiny that you earn through your actions and behavior. It’s a simple theory that goes back thousands of years, but can have a profound impact on your life today. Think about it. Our actions define our destiny. Powerful, isn’t it? In a world that sometimes feels like it’s spinning out of control, practicing karma keeps you grounded.
Whether you know it or not, you may have already been practicing karma in your life! Integrate these daily practices of good karma, and notice if anything shifts.
Express Gratitude Often
There’s so much in this world to be grateful for, but more often than not we forget to appreciate it. Keep a gratitude journal to write down all the little things that make you happy to be alive. And spread that gratitude, too. In our digital world, we forget how personal and heartfelt a handwritten note or thank you card is. Instead of just writing your obligatory post-wedding or birthday cards, write a thank you card to someone for just simply being in your life.
Be of Service
There are so many ways to be of service and give back. Whether it’s your local community or on a more global scale, the benefits of being of service are the perfect example of karma! Decide what type of service is best for you and don’t hold back.
Give Back to Mother Earth
Our planet supports us, and it’s on us to do our part. What we get back from reducing our carbon footprint is a place we can live, love and call our home.
Random Acts of Kindness
Brighten someone’s day and it’s bound to come back around. Buy the person behind you their coffee, smile to a stranger on the street, invite a new friend to your favorite yoga class, or give an unexpected gift. The more we cultivate kindness in our lives and to others, the more likely it’ll be there when we’re down.
Sounds simple, right? But one of the easiest and most powerful ways to demonstrate empathy is to simply listen. In our relationships and at work, communication is integral to success. And it goes both ways. So when we listen, we can understand better — which all boils down to success. Hence the karmic cycle strikes again!
