wisdom teaching“Continuing on the mystery path and the discussion regarding the wheel of karma, which we are attached to in our current existence, the question quickly arises, how do we remove ourselves from the wheel? The simplest way to teach or describe this lesson is to explain that every act, thought, deed, and word that we create, comes back to us through this wheel”. – Kala Ambrose

This is a difficult lesson for many students to embrace, for it is a major step in understanding that what you think, is not hidden, rather it is reflected all around you in your life. We were taught that our thoughts were secret, that no one knew what we were thinking. What a profound concept, everything you think, is reflected and then created in your life. Once you begin to focus on this concept that you create your reality, the awareness quickly sinks in that if you are displeased with any portion of your life, that according to this principle and universal law, you assisted in creating and attracting these series of events into your life.

This concept forces the student to wrestle with the ego and the mind. We all want to believe that we are good people who do no harm to ourselves or others. To accept the idea that the negative events occurring in our lives are a direct reflection of our thoughts, words, actions and deeds is to embrace the fact that we can never blame another person again for anything that occurs in our lives. No one can ever again “make” us angry, we choose to be angry; no one can make us happy or sad, rather, we choose to have this emotion.

In addition, in some cases, we have brought this karma back with us from a previous incarnation and thusly have attracted these experiences to us again, in order to learn and master this lesson and move forward. When this is understood, it becomes pointless to keep up a wall in an attempt to avoid the experiences and difficulties of life, as they are being created or have been created by you to continue on your path of development. The quickest way to move through the lesson is with compassion and understanding for all involved, with the realization that this experience will soon pass, which allows the soul to be free to move on to new experiences. Many of these experiences quickly end when a student works through their fears, to the point where they are ready to see and speak their truth. For many, this is a most difficult task.

academy of mystical artsThe wisdom student is taught that if you do not like a certain aspect of your life, examine your thoughts and beliefs about this subject. To make a change in this area, begin by changing your thoughts. For example, many people say to justify their feelings or actions: “I can’t help it, I was born this way or raised this way by my parents”, or “You do not understand me, I am very sensitive.” These are called defense mechanisms. To be a student of the wisdom teachings, you will need to embrace the understanding that heredity is a temporary situation, not a permanent one.

We are the creators of our destiny, and this occurs every moment of our lives. It is our decision as to whether it will be done consciously or unconsciously. When this is understood, one can no longer blame everyone and everything else for the situations surrounding them. As the student learns these concepts, they must take a deep look at their life and then begin to change the picture by an overhaul and reconstruction of their mind. This in turn, creates new chemical reactions in our bodies, moving from destructive chemicals created by worry, fear, stress and anxiety to love, peace, joy and abundance.

ThoughtsAnother deeply surprising awakening is that, if you can think a thought, then it has already been experienced on some level. This teaching has been expressed by many inspired and creative people, including Walt Disney when he spoke, “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It”. The reason we do not create more with our minds is because the lower self and the ego is controlling. It prefers to stay with what is familiar, as the lower self deals with fear as a primary motivating factor.

Ego works daily to convince the lower self and mind that this is the best choice. The mantra of the ego says, if one stays with the familiar, the fears have been weighed and considered and one will be in greater control of all situations. The belief is that in keeping with this system, one stays safe and prepared for whatever is going to happen next. The ego never lets the mind forget that a negative experience is always sure to be looming around the next corner. What the person does not see, is that the ego while doing this, slowly builds brick by brick, or shall we say, thought by thought, a wall around the person and the soul, which limits the person from the full expression of their soul. It also slows down one of the reasons to be on this plane, which is to gain and learn through experiences.

  1. Great post. I just had an experience this morning where I immediately reacted to someone accusing me of not doing my job. Instead of taking a breath and calmly responding, I went into defensive mode. Was that because I don’t think I was doing my job? Did I agree with this person on a subconscious level?

    1. Hi Jillian, that’s a great question. Most times when we have a strong reaction to what someone is saying about us, there is an underlying subconscious emotion or thought that we have not thoroughly dealt with internally. It may not even have to do with what the person is saying to us in that moment, but rather something we feel about ourselves from a different situation or from past experiences.

      It’s not a nice thing that this person said to you, so we can all understand having a reaction to their comment. But as you say, you reacted more emotionally to this statement than you usually would. Perhaps you reacted defensively to this statement because you’ve taken on too much in your life at this time and feel at some level that you are not able to do your best, because you have too much to do and not enough time or energy to do your best at everything in your work and life.

      When we step into the spiritual understanding that we are all connected and that each person can mirror/reflect something back to us from within ourselves, we can see from a soul perspective that this may reach into our subconscious and reflect something we are struggling with internally.

      When we look at it this way, we can do some self-observation and introspection and take a moment to ask ourselves, Is there something for me to look at here on a deeper level? Have I taken on too much and am feeling that I am not doing my best at what I do? If so, what changes can I make in my life.

      As well, the person who said this to you, is also reflecting their feelings and their concerns of their own inadequacies of not doing their best as well. One of the universal teachings is that – what we see in others, is what we see within ourselves.

      So know that this person is also experiencing doubts about whether they can handle their workload and if they are doing their best. Next time you work with this person, perhaps there will be a way to reach out to them and engage in a conversation where both of you can work together to do the best job possible for the work you are doing together. This creates a conscious connection aligning both people in the co-creative energy of coming together to do their best.

      I hope this is of some help to you. It’s a long conversation and there are many more layers of the onion that can be pulled back and examined in each of these 9 lessons as we explore ourselves on the deepest conscious and subconscious levels.

      Much love and all the best,
      *~Kala~*
