While the concept of being able to free one’s self from
challenging karma by “asking ‘The Lords of Karma’
for release…” is certainly appealing, we ask, what sort
of karma does one expect to be able to dodge using this
method? Ongoing conflict with a family member?
Noisy neighbors? Habits relating to over-indulgence?

Or, perhaps one expects to be able to erase much more
significant karma and be released from the following, for
example: physical handicaps or serious illness; moderate
income with lots of work and little free time to learn other
skills; the demanding burden of family members, like
problem children or an ill parent who needs your constant
support; being financially trapped with a spouse who
does not give you what you want and who won’t change;
or repeatedly attracting unfaithful and hurtful love
interests.

One must first identify their personal karma if they truly
want to know that they really did eliminate it without
balancing it directly. How do you know it is your karma
in the first place? We find comprehensive astrology and
numerology to be the most effective way to measure
karma and its timing. From our perspective, if significant
karma really was removed from one’s life, it would be
identifiable in the charts before it was removed, as
important life circumstance and events are consistently
symbolized by comprehensive charting patterns.

What we are saying is, all too often, we hear of people
talking about “erasing karma” (often times they refer to
future circumstances that they claim are “just possibilities”).
In all the cases we’ve reviewed, we’ve asserted that it
wasn’t their karma to experience in the first place after
finding zero indications of the said “karma” in the charts,
so they really didn’t erase anything.

We are very interested in hearing about karma that
anyone claims to have successfully bypassed without
having to directly balance. We are constantly searching
for evidence that would challenge or invalidate our theory
that everyone’s life is full of unalterable karmic events and
circumstances. So far, we have found none.

For the record, as we state on our web sites, we contend
that at least 75% of the key themes, events, circumstances,
and happenings in everyone’s life are predestined. We also
feel that everyone has their own unique “karmic framework,”
within which only the desired outcomes that fit within those
boundaries will be able to be manifested. Yes, the universe
“always says yes,” and yes there are “unlimited possibilities”
in this universe, but only on a soul level as you plan your
next life before you incarnate into this dimension, where
spiritual and karmic laws can’t be compromised.

We admire those who strive to heal and improve themselves,
their relationships, and other parts of their lives, but we
would like to remind everyone that many of the complications
and challenges of life serve a higher purpose. It would be
nice if you could just erase what you don’t like, but then
that would defeat the primary purpose of being here.

It goes without saying that we feel the “Lords of Karma”
concept is a myth. You are the only lord of your own karma.
Most, if not all respected experts in the area of reincarnation,
karma, past life regression, and life-between-life, based on
years of unbiased research, agree.

We are disappointed that some promote the “Lords of Karma”
concept because it encourages avoiding taking responsibility
for one’s actions. No one gets a “get out of jail free” card,
no matter how much they pray, lie, deny, or bargain. Ultimately,
everything you do, say and intend will come back to you.

Furthermore, nobody “grants” you “ascension” or anything
else and a talented writer saying something is so doesn’t
make it so. We find promoting such baseless concepts
irresponsible and frivolous.

You can’t live healthfully on a 100% junk food diet just
by asking the Lords of Health to help you bypass health
challenges.

You can’t be fluent in Japanese simply by asking the Lords
of the Japanese Language to give you that ability.

You can’t sober up after downing 5 stiff drinks just by
asking the Lords of Sobriety to free you of intoxication.

You do have free will to accept your karma, both the good
and the bad, to forgive yourself and others, which will
make it easier to deal with, and to react positively with
unconditional love to the conditions and events in your
life. But there are no simple wave-your-magic-wand solutions,
despite what many New Age promoters cheerfully advocate.
