Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D. Farmer: DNA ~ Karma
DNA ~ Karma: “Karma, a concept in many Eastern religions, is a Sanskrit word implying the greater universal laws of cause and effect, providing an implied code of ethics within the structure of the seemingly endless cycles of birth, death, and rebirth (samsara), which we experience throughout our lives in many different versions. The mistaken notion about karma is that it is some kind of punishment, but it is far from that. In face, in its purest form, it simply asserts that our conduct in this lifetime will determine our next incarnation. It has also come to mean how our behaviour and actions in this lifetime crate consequences in a slightly different version of the Golden Rule.
We not only carry our soul’s karma into this lifetime, but also embedded in the complex coding of our DNA is our genetic ancestral karma. The double-helix structure of DNA contains codes that have been passed down from our parents and grandparents as well as our ancestors; therefore, we have some of the same genetic information that comes from the DNA of very early humans.
In this card, we see two intertwined serpents with double helixes on either side. Variations of this archetypal image exist in many cultures, both traditional and contemporary. It is a graphic representation of the most ancient ancestry we can lay claim to: our DNA, the fundamental substance of life itself that provides substantial determination of our life path.
Aspects of your soul entered your primitive physical self long before you had begun to take form. While the DNA that you inherited from you biological parents has a soul pattern that came together in the creation of “you.” You are predisposed to follow the karmic dictates of this patterning to some extent, as you evolve in your consciousness and expand the light of awareness, you can make choices that shift and modify this ancestral design.
This is one of those times. You can feel the tug of your soul that is both ancient and karmic, yet you also recognize the persistent and loving communication from your Higher Self that contradicts the more familiar solutions before you. The choice is up to you, but know that every time you heed the guidance of your Higher Self, no matter what etheric or physical form it takes, human consciousness is elevated. In a sense, it becomes a choice between destiny and fate.”*

What you do comes back to you. Employing a clear understanding of the Law Of Attraction can help in grasping the concept of Karma. Not only can you draw to you what you wish for by raising your vibration to meet it; you can also whip yourself into a state of disaster through low vibrational, negative energy. This negative energy will then create blockages in your energy, which if left untended can create havok. Some of these blocks could manifest into physical obstacles holding you back from your desires; from illnesses to things in your life not going as planned. Yet everything is connected. If we look closely, these blocks and obstacles are often our karmic lessons. When we realize this, we can make a conscious decision to rise above them; releasing attachments to negative outcomes and start to see a bigger picture. In this way, we work through and then release this Karma and continue on to greater states of awareness and higher consciousness. If we refuse to see our own hand in our karma, and choose to live our lives as victims, we often repeat the same patterns over and over, until we take responsibility and work to find the lesson and release it.
Do you see a pattern in your life that you are unable or unwilling to change? This may not be something you can deal with over night, but it is certainly important to look very closely at your life right now and see exactly what it is that is holding you back from your dreams. What compromises have you made? Where have you stepped off your life’s path? Are you able to make some simple changes each and every day, leading you slowly but consistently back to your chosen path? Ask the Angels to help you with this; they are experts at paving the way to our dreams.
Knowing and seeing is the first step to change. Lead with love, trust and faith; focusing your energy on a positive outcome for all those concerned. By the grace of the Universe.
