Karma is not a punishment for some sins. Karma is the mechanism of cause and effect - any action produces consequences. There is a reason for any situation. Karma can be negative, neutral, and positive. Each of our actions is karmic because every action has consequences. They can be positive, neutral, or negative. For example, a positive karmic effect is usually when a person decides to develop, to learn to develop. Negative, for example, when a person has drowned in one of his past lives and has given him a strong shock. The karmic effect can be that one is afraid of water in the next life. Once again, I would like to emphasize that karma is not a punishment for some sins from past lives. Usually, people have a question, what happens to those bad people who have killed someone but have not been punished? Do they then go unpunished? There is no hell, no paradise, and no higher punishment mechanism. But such people do not go unpunished. In the astral world, there is no physical matter that restricts the movement and communication of souls. As such, it is not easy for such people in the astral world, for those who have been harmed by it will do their utmost to make their living in the astral world as uncomfortable as possible. This is also karma. Very often these people are forced to reincarnate in the physical world as quickly as possible to escape such intolerable circumstances. And this usually happens without much consideration of the circumstances under which he is born - he reincarnates in the first body that happens to be. However, such an escape from his ills is only a temporary escape - sooner or later he will return to the astral world.
So if karma is a cause-effect relationship, not a punitive mechanism, what does bad karma mean and how can it be changed? Bad karma means our negative attitude or reaction to a process that does not cause any negative reaction in other people. When we change karma, we change attitudes to certain processes. It means, for example, getting rid of some fear, it means changing your attitude towards yourself and loving yourself. It means changing attitudes towards other people, animals, or things. There are many examples, depending on what caused this negative attitude or reaction. If this negative karma has begun to develop in this life, then by analyzing the negative situation that triggered the negative reaction, one must work on self-improvement to get rid of that reaction. If this situation, which has triggered a strong negative reaction, has been very traumatic, then it is even more necessary to work on the problem so that it does not create negative karma in later life. If negative karma comes from past lives, then the most effective way to get rid of this karma is to remember the life that has had this emotional trauma that triggered negative karma, or a negative reaction to some process. If this is not possible, then it involves a great deal of work on your part to reverse a negative reaction to a harmonic or neutral reaction.
If you have negative karma, if you are unlucky in life, if you have health problems, etc., you should not even think that it is a punishment for something from past lives. No higher force punishes anyone in the universe, there is no such mechanism. God does not punish anyone. Each consequence has its own cause. If you were born with a sick body, then this is not a punishment. This means that, at the time of reincarnation, you have not been able to adequately assess the quality and risks of embryo health, and you have not sufficiently evaluated your prospective parents' ability to create a healthy embryo. Is it karma? Yes! There is a cause (poor embryo or bad genetics) and there are consequences (your health problems). If you are not successful in money transactions then you may have had a history of negative financial experiences, lack of skills, unreasonable fear of big money, or some other reason. There are many reasons why.
Changing your karma requires a great deal of work with yourself. It is necessary to raise your vibrations, to get rid of fear, anger, or other ego reactions. You have to learn to love yourself, your life, and the people around you. Suffering does not relieve negative karma, and suffering can lead to new karmic effects and injuries. Only inner harmony with one's self and surroundings can change negative karma
