Like many people, I have concluded there is family karma. Paraphrasing the bible, it states, “The sins of the father will be visited upon by the descendants even until the third and fourth generation.”
I never really understood this quote until recently. I always assumed that if your father went to jail, his descendants would go to jail also. In an indirect way, it could mean this, but more realistically, it means that the parents teach their offspring in certain ways. These teachings can carry down three or four generations.
Thus, if kids are taught to be scoundrels , their kids are likely to learn the same and this will lead to a life of uncertain consequences. By the same token , if children are brought up with good moral and ethical principles, there is a strong likelihood their lives will be well rounded.
It is true there are no guarantees in life. By adhering to sound economic and moral principles there is a greater probability of a successful and satisfying life. When hards times do come, souls will have the fortitude to rebound and go on to lead happier , successful lives.
People ask,”Why would my karma be affected by my parents and why would my karma affect my kids?
When you create karma for yourself, it’s your karma and your responsibility to balance the energy to bring yourself into line with universal law. Along with that , we have generational karma. We receive it from our ancestors and it is embedded into our DNA.
This karma comes about because our family lines have had generations of unconscious repetitive patterns that they haven’t evolved from. Alcoholism food and drug addiction, depression, the list goes on and on. These generational patterns go on and on, and even get worse with each succeeding generation if they aren’t dealt with .
It is one of your missions in life. You chose to be born into this family and agreed to either go along with the program and to change it for the better. You were born into your family to learn the soul lessons you wanted to learn from them. Your generational life patterns are what you came here to heal.
Once we realize that, and begin the healing process , through our own free will, we begin to fulfill our life purpose. Many evolved souls chose difficult life conditions upon which to be born into. These opportunities provide souls with tremendous opportunities for soul growth. By seizing upon the moment, the soul has a chance to break free from these patterns and help their families to break free from their karma as well.
Karma is the end result of vibrational discord. The laws of evolution determine this. The only way to heal is to forgive. It doesn’t mean we forget what someone has done, we just forgive them and move on. Love the person, but not what they do.
By forgiving , we release the bonds of karma, and it will no longer affect us. If they continue their actions, they will suffer the negative consequences. They will attract someone else into their circle and begin the whole scenario over again.
Once you have learned this lesson well, you are free to move on.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.
