Deeper understanding of Karma and how do you overcome its influences:
Everything is stored in the Akashic records. Nothing is ever lost or forgotten and karma is developed for us to work through to dissolve unresolved entanglements and accrued emotional debts. Working through these unresolved issues allows one to dilute the negative impact from our past actions and turn them into positive energy for our personal potential. This enables you to take responsibility for your own destiny and begin to follow your true path.
Our past shapes what we are now and what we are to become in the future. That is your destiny. Everything is recorded and becomes apart of your memory: psychological memory, which is a combination of old impressions, likes, dislikes, and prejudices. This memory can be an obstacle to your health and relationships. The second kind of memory is called technical memory which is like scientific knowledge. Technical memory is not a detriment, in fact it is essential to our everyday practical life. It is how we calculate decisions so that we do not create harm to ourselves in this life. Our psychological mind colors our perceptions of reality and sometimes leads you to impulsive behavior that causes pain, suffering, and disease.
We must overcome these patterns and habits in the psychological mind that have been stored and carried from incarnation to incarnation. Whether you believe in incarnations of the soul or not doesn’t really matter because it is what it is whether or or not your intellectual mind wants to accept it. You have nothing to lose to understand the concept so you may take certain procedures to influence these patterns. These old patterns can create healthy or unhealthy results in our lives. In the book the Divine Doctor, by Joseph Michael Levry, he refers to the psychological memory as the seven karmic influences. These Karmic influences (seven sources that effect our relationships) determine our mental attitude and the way we react to life’s happenings. These mental outlooks cannot be changed overnight. It takes time to mold new thought patterns and it is only through discipline and consistency that we outgrow old habits and establish new trends. These karmic influences and the negative patterns that are established is why so many people are in therapy. Regular Kriya style yoga and meditation found with Kundalini yoga gives you the technology to help you resolve and understand these old patterns so you may establish the healthiest of existence.
These seven karmic influences contribute to our psychological conditioning determining how our physical body relates to our emotional and mental inhibitions. In these bodies are lifetimes of experiences, both traumatic and strengthening, and our physical being reflects how we faced challenges in the past. These earthly experiences and lessons has added up to the wisdom that resides on our deepest level.
1-Our debts and past lives–this is karma (more on that next week)-We carry this into our physical self at birth
2-Our Father–Since the soul must be contained within a vessel to live on earth, it must inhibit a body. When the soul decides to return to earth, it chooses two parents it believes will be a perfect match in terms of carrying out its mission of karmic obligation or responsibilities. Whatever your soul needs in this lifetime will be established by your birth partents.
3-Our Mother–the zygote is formed-union of both genes come together creating a new pool of genetics or blueprint of this life. Some of the patterns you have are inherited. Many will continue the same pattern from the past.
4-Mother’s Womb–This is where many of our idiosyncrasies such as likes, dislikes, hopes, fears, and anxieties of your mother becomes apart an intrinsic part of your psyche.
5-How your parents raised you, most specifically between the ages of one to eleven. This is where all the negative and positive conditioning took place. All the things that may plague you now happened during those crucial years. At age eight the pineal gland begins to degenerate and sexual maturation initiated by the release of hormones from the pituitary gland. Because there is an imbalance between the pranic body and mental body one needs to opportunity to balance the sympathetic (pingala-right prana channel) and parasympathetic (IDa-left prana channel) nervous system. At the age of 11 your central character has been molded.
6-Your environment–So if you grew up an abusive environment you may grow up thinking abuse is acceptable. This is how the environment becomes apart of the patterns. The intensity of the experience whether it joy, sadness or pain, will determine the force of the imprint. These imprints become the seedbeds in which our thoughts and actions bloom and grow, becoming the garden of our present and future experiences. The mind is like a computer-all it knows has been programmed into our memory. Therefore when the mind is confronted with a new situation, it retrieves the data necessary to process the commands from the program of our past experiences. All relations subsequent to our primary ones and those we formed long ago with family members will always engender the same reactions. That is because the mind, a creature of habit, likes to attach itself to old, familiar patterns since that is all it knows. This psychological conditioning is made up of our dislikes, likes, prejudices, frustrations, negative human qualities, attitudes, habits, experiences, regrets, fears, anger, anxieties, guilt, shame, and more. Therefore, our subconscious urges keep us forever in a loop consisting of the past experiences of our conscious mind, which are the real obstacles to your happiness.
7-The planet, solar, or universal energies that are affiliated with your birthday. They have different energetic impacts on you throughout the year as we move through 52 day cycles. In order from Sunday through Saturday they stand for Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn. These same planetary objects also have an energetic connection to the digits of your fingers. That is why it is common to see yogic meditations, mantra, and mudra combined to create a desired intention or affect.

These factors will determine whether we will undergo suffering and pain or happiness and joy.
Six step process to eliminate the negative karmic influences:
1-Identify the influences
2-Observe and analyze your thoughts and emotional patterns-journal
3-Accept and take responsibility for the self-deception, hypocrisy, and small mindedness that is established. Forgive yourself and continue on
4-Evaluate–direct the thoughts-learn to accept the good ones and neutralize and transmute the destructive ones.
5-Meditate–Face it-make it be known to you-As long as the karma is unknown or invisible by the ego, then it cannot be healed. Use zero or still point in the mind with mantra sound current to create new imprints in the mind
6-Understand–see the big picture-ease the mental agitation and go beyond your conscious mind to experience true self healing. Let go and just be during your meditation. Use breath, mudra, mantra, and still point focus.
Each week we practice different physical movements, mantras, and mudras to explore these areas of self understanding and awareness creating a road map to release old burdens and re-establish patterns that create liberation in the body so you have more joy and happiness in your life. It is this regular discipline and consistency that will make all the difference in your progress. It is not always comfortable at first and may even seem awkward to hold a position or chant, but it does give you the opportunity to break the patterns that has made you in this present state.
It does take courage, understanding, action, and determination to create a change in these patterns. Practice Kundalini yoga, participate in cleansing, clear your energy with sound vibration, and meditate daily and you will begin to actively burn your karma one day at a time. Kundalini yoga will burn the Karma at an accelerated pace.
