Do you believe in Karmic debts? Here's what I believe.
How are you doing on day 17 of lockdown? It does seem like the lockdown will be extended. So let us brace ourselves and not think about it. What has to happen, will happen. We have no control really--over circumstances or people.
People come into our lives at certain times, and our life changes. People also vanish from our lives at certain points--maybe they break up, may be they stop talking to you for no reason, maybe they die. Our life changes again.
Our life is like a river which ebbs and flows towards a final destination, at which point our soul leaves our physical bodies. The number of books I have read on this topic are numerous. All of them say similar things--that we form connections with people at certain point in our lives, and when the 'karmic debt' is paid off, they vanish.
I have read all the books of Dr. Brian Weiss.
If you haven't read them, I highly recommend them; Begin with Many Lives, Many masters. I have also read Sonia Choquette, Shakti Gawain. Esther and Jerry Hicks, Ian Stevenson's research papers , Deepak Chopra, Khorshed Bhavnagari and many more whose names I forget. You can find some of them in my highlights Books 1 and Books 2 on my Instagram.
I used to be a skeptic, going only by scientific proof and 'rationalising' everything, until some very unusual things (I blogged about one of them) started happening to me. They changed me in many ways. I grew. I also started meditating which gave me deeper insights into so many things which I would not even have imagined.
There are some excellent ted talks on this subject too. I recommend these three :
I see dead people by Dr. Christopher Kerr.
From life to death, beyond and back by Thomas Fleischmann
Dying to be me: Anita Moorjani
If you are interested in this subject, do watch the above. (I have linked them all to make it easy for you)
And read the books that talk about this!
It's a great way to spend time during this #Lockdown.
If you have read any books on this subject, if you have any thoughts on it, do leave me a comment in my comment box. If you are reading this in your inbox, please head over to my blog. and leave me a comment, rather than dashing off a mail to me (which will probably get buried in the deluge of mails I receive).
I will see you here again, tomorrow.
Until then, think of all the people you feel a connection with, close your eyes, and send them warmth and love.
Take good care of yourself.
Lots of love

Thank you for this wonderful post Mam 🙏🏻 You look gorgeous in the photo.ReplyDelete
I do believe in karmic debts Mam! I read Dr. Brian Weiss' 'Many Lives, Many Masters' just three months back. I liked the book very much. I learnt a lot from that book. Similar to it, there is Raymond A. Moody's 'Life After Life' which is also good. I highly recommend Guruji Krishnananda's 'Doorways To Light' which is such an eye-opener.
Haven't read Raymond Moody but have heard of him. Thank you for the compliment :)Delete
You are welcome Mam! 😊Delete
Preetiji you are gorgeous as ever.Karmic debt and unexplained happenings.I have had my share.My dad met with an accident in may 2014 and his right leg was wounded.He called me by the time I reached a gentleman helped him board a cab and together we took Dad to the hospital.All was ok.I thanked the gentlemantook his number and gave a missed call to to confirm the number and i thought I would meet him again to gift him something as a thank you gesture.ReplyDelete
After 2 days I called him up to find the number "temporarily out of service".I checked out with the airtel guys and they told me the number was disconnected 3 months ago and not allocated to anyone.I mentioned the gentleman's name and was shocked to discover the number belonged to the same person and was disconnected 3 months ago coz the gentleman had passed away.I still can't find explanation for this.
OMG..What an insane story. Gave me goosebumps. Some things have no explanation.Delete
Good morning :) thank you for the recommendation of the books. And I do strongly believe in karma philosophy! I have read good number of books and magazines I come across. The different Upanishads which are very simplified can be found in the books of Sri Sathya Sai publications. In Bangalore we can get it in the small book store in WHITE FIELD Brindavan ashram. They are very deep and simple. Apart from these the main epics of Ramayan and Bhagavatha, even Mahabharatha scriptures have a lot to say. I have heard the discourses of life, Karma and akarma things from great spiritual masters. I guess I have maintained some dairy while they were speaking and wrote the main points. Bhagavadgita is the profound book when understood correctly and analysed well, gives us the deeper meaning of all these..ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing. Will look up Brindavan ashram and will look at these books when the lockdown is over.Delete
Everything in this earth comes with an expiry date and I do believe in that Ma'am. Thanks for writing this post Ma'am.ReplyDelete
Philosophy teaches what Life is all about
Indeed. Different schools of philosophies are so interesting.Delete
I do believe in karma theory...have not read the books you have mentioned, rather have not even heard of it....but being a Pranic Healer, I got teachings & learnings from the courses, the meditations tought & also books written by our Master, Choa kok Sui....also many I have met also believe in karmic theory & the karma is here to learn our lesson to be learnt & thus to make our soul evolve...So with each & every person or situation, if we question ourselves of what is the lesson this wants me to learn, we shall get answers from our own sub-conscious mind & thus we can learn our lesson
Thanks for the post, I loved it
I so agree about getting answers from our own subconscious mind--we are a part of the whole. We are all one.Delete
Thank you mamDelete
Hi Preeti. You are looking gorgeous in the photo. I always feel that when someone leaves me it is for a reason. It has happened to me a lot of times. I sometimes sit and think why it happened, but it did. Initially it used to hurt me, but then I got used to it. I have heard about the book, "Many Lives, Many Masters" but never read it. Now that I have started reading a lot during this Lockdown Period, I think I will read it. Thank you for the TED Talks Links. Will definitely check them out. Take care.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. The pic was clicked by my daughter in Mumbai. The ted talks are super interesting. Do watch.Delete
