Karmic Matrix Defined:
We all are in a karmic matrix: of our families,
our friends, our coworkers, our nations, our religions, our races, our
genders, and so on. Whenever two or more are gathered together by
reincarnation in the cause of balancing past life karma, a karmic
matrix is formed.
Web of Karma:
Life is closely and intimately connected. Those
who you spend significant time with (especially your family and friends)
have been with you before in past lives. Before we go on the adventure
of our lives, we agree to come into certain relationships with others.
This is better known as our
which is formed by reincarnation and
weaves a tight web of karma all around us.
Role of Reincarnation:
Reincarnation into karmic matrixes works to
open us to greater levels of love. This becomes both easier and harder
when we reincarnate with the same group of people over time. Easier
when we meet those we already love. Harder when we meet those we already
hate. Hardest of all when we cannot seem to overcome this hate and endure
an extensive cycle of
The purpose of karmic matrixes is to bring
individuals - who have not learned to love one another in past lives -
together so that they can have a new opportunity to do so. They are
designed to help us all resolve our problems with one another while at
the same time helping us to work through our own issues.
When the purpose of the karmic matrix has been
achieved - to the extent possible - it dissolves and the individuals
regroup to form new ones. So if you are in a karmic matrix that you do
not like... there is a solution. Bless the karmic matrix, bring more
love into the situation, consciously strive to learn the lessons inside
the matrix... and then you can become free of it.
Those who have worked in the corporate world
have noticed this matrix at work without realizing it. For example,
a group of people can work together in the same relationships for years.
Then, all of a sudden, things change drastically due to reorganization
or to people "happening to leave" at the same time. New relationships
are formed and run until the next wave of change. Karmically, this
means that one karmic matrix has closed because its objectives have
been met and another one has opened to support the achievement of
Family, whether biological or adopted, is an
individual's primary karmic matrix. This is so because people spend
the most elapsed time over the course of the lives with their family.
Also, families are created out of a person's
Other karmic matrices come and go but the family
matrix - whether the birth family, the marital family, or the extension
of each of these groups (uncles, aunts, in-laws, etc) - persists over
the course of one's lifetime. Since most people spend the most time
with family, this results in the most intense situations.
Where we live determines the group of people
we can physically interact with… and so draws the right mix of karmic
partners together. Although karmic partners can be drawn together
powerfully into virtual groups online, it is those who live in the
same place and interact face-to-face offline who have the better
chance to resolve karma existing between us. Those who are "in each
other's face" are joined together for the express purpose of working
through their mutual karma.
Where we work and the kind of job we have also
determines the group of people we can physically interact with… and,
outside of the family, draws the most intense karmic partners together.
This is because the completion of work tasks inevitably creates
conflicts that test the patience and compassion of all concerned.
Usually because coworkers are unrelated to one another, they are freer
to let their true characters rise to the surface... to face the
toughest tests of karma.
Where we worship, where we pursue hobbies, and
where we focus our attention on recreational activities also draws
karmic partners together. While career tends to lead to "negative"
karmic encounters, the pursuit of shared interests tends to create
"positive" karmic encounters leading to friendship and love.
Where we come to learn and grow through
education, draws karmic partners together. These have the potential
to be very positive or very negative encounters depending on the mix
of people involved. This is a reflection of the greater truth that
all our experiences with all the significant people we meet are
designed to educate us. The goal of the karmic classroom is to
advance into greater degrees of love, joy, and awareness by reaping
the consequences of our actions.
Most karmic matrices are carefully planned
reunions of those who have mutual past life karma! This is the most
intricate and sophisticated scheduling process in the universe. There
are NO accidents when it comes to those we interact with during our
Most individuals have at least three karmic
matrices at any given time in their life. The first matrix for each
individual is the birth family where parents, children, and the
extended family are drawn together by deep, unresolved karma from a
series of shared/interconnected past lives. The second matrix for
most individuals is their marital family where a different arrangement
of individuals are drawn together by karma. The third matrix for each
individual is past lives impacting their health and wealth which often
represents the most intense karma.
The answers to these questions begin the
formation of the karmic matrix for each person.
What are your most pressing life lessons? Who
are your top karmic partners (those who most want to balance past
life karma)? What are you - as Soul - most wanting to do? How can you
become more loving? How can you become better at creating? What is the
best way you can learn? How can you grow in awareness?
The answers to all these question are the
magnets connecting you to your matrices of karmic partners.
The gathering of souls to form the karmic
matrix is a very complicated scheduling process. Many times a Karmic
Matrix is long delayed until all of those required for its formation
are available. Once they are all present, then families are formed,
whether through biology or adoption, to set the stage for the
resolution of karma. Arrangements are made to ensure significant
meetings happen. Situations arise where there are many paths open
to each individual to exercise their free will by making choices.
These choices either resolve karma or add to it.
Reversal of Fortune:
The gathering of souls in a karmic matrix
involves many reversals of fortune. What you have brought into the
lives of others in the past now comes back into your present life.
The strong must experience weakness. The rich must experience poverty.
The partisans - whether through gender, race, religion, national origin,
or ethnicity - must experience the "other" side. The family must
rotate roles: parents become children, spouses become siblings, friends
become family, and family becomes acquaintances or strangers.
Everything is experienced.
The golden threads that draw souls together
are… Hate: if you hate someone, you are sure to be reunited until
that hate can transform into love. Love: if you have unfinished
business with loved ones or want to know more love, you will be
reunited. Experience: if you have not taken all the classes life
requires, you will be put into the right classroom. Defect: if you
have a spiritual lack (like a pattern of mistrust or unforgiveness),
you will be given plenty of opportunities to correct the problem.
All of these goals are achieved inside karmic matrices.
Most karmic matrices go through a predictable
cycle of change over time! They follow the pattern of "Group Dynamics"
which are the natural phases that groups (formed for any purpose) follow
over time. This pattern of group dynamics is most clearly seen in
During the "Forming" phase, the group members
will be gathered together. For example, in a family, the group starts
with the parents. It expands as children are added to it. Perhaps
other relatives will come to live with the family. Maybe there are
friends who come to visit so often that they are just like family.
Whatever the mix of people are, everyone in the family will know who
belongs to the group and who does not. Once formed, the group
continues for awhile.
During the "Storming" phase, within the group,
each individual will jockey for position. Each one will evaluate the
others as to their strengths and weaknesses. Roles and responsibilities
will be assigned to each person in the group by common agreement. For
example, in a family, one child will be the model student, another will
be the rebel, and the third will be the helpless one. These roles were
"stormed" while the children grew and struggled to define themselves.
During the "Norming" phase, within the group
setting, each person must agree to their assigned role. For each
situation, one will be the leader and the others will follow. For
example, in a family, one parent will be the disciplinarian while the
other will be the comforter and these roles will rarely change over
Conforming for Performing:
During the "Conforming" phase, individuals
will settle into their roles because this creates the kind of stability and
predictability that makes life manageable. Each person plays the part
they agreed to for a time. For example, in a family, the favorite
child will receive better treatment and the rest of the children will
learn to live with it while the spouse who works more will expect
their mate to work less and not complain. The family will roll along
During the "Adjourning" phase, within the group,
there will be a common and mutual recognition that something vital has
changed… and the group must break apart. For example, in a family,
children will grow up and leave the home, shrinking the group. Perhaps
the over-functioning spouse will choose to leave their under-functioning
mate. The moment the group changes - for those who leave it - there is
a chance for better karma. There is the opportunity to form a new and
better karmic matrix that is filled with kinder partners and fairer
