"What is karmic debt?" This ye have made a bugaboo! This ye have overbalanced within thyself! What is thy life but the gift of thy Maker that ye may be wholly one with Him?"
(Edgar Cayce Reading #1536-3)
Karma. The Law of Attraction. “Thoughts are things.” “Like begets like.” “What you sow, you will reap.” “God is love.” “What you give comes back to you.” Grace. These are examples of universal laws that govern everything we will ever experience in this life and in lives to come. Yet what do we really know about them? And how practical is our understanding of these great laws? Can we work with them in a way that makes a difference in the quality of our lives?
This four-week interactive experience will delve into the wealth of information in the Edgar Cayce readings regarding the action of universal law in its manifestation as karma and its ever-present influence as grace. With an ongoing focus on application to real situations in your own life, it will be an opportunity for you to work intentionally toward greater harmony of your consciousness, priorities and behavioral choices with universal law – the true “secret” to happiness, peace and wellbeing.
Over the course of these four weeks, we will explore such questions as:
- Is it possible to change our karma?
- If karma is the immutable law of cause and effect in our lives, then where does grace come in? Is it a random “get out of jail free card,” or is it, too, an immutable law, with which we can learn to cooperate?
- How do we unwittingly shut grace out of our experience?
- Is there any such thing as "bad karma?"
- How can we learn to better predict the karmic outcomes of our choices and use that to live more grace-fully?
- Is it ever too late to transform our karmic destiny?
Along the way, there will be an opportunity to identify of karmic patterns in the longer timeframe of your soul’s history and learn how to constructively work with them. Downloadable hypnotic regressions to past lives and progressions to future lives will be included. But this is not simply an inward-turned focus on self’s experiences, challenges and triumphs: it will also be an opportunity to deepen your connection with God and with others and to enhance your presence as one who helps bring more grace into the world at a time of great need.
Four Weeks Designed to Help You Step Into the Flow of Grace
Week One: Why Karma Alone Is Not Enough: Coming to terms with karma; moving from the "remedial" view of your life to an expansive view; recognizing grace all around you; spotting "karmic thinking" in your life; choosing the Way of Grace.
Week Two: Preventive Grace: Avoiding Karmic Detours: Previewing the karmic consequences of your current undesirable habits, attitudes and behaviors and finding new power to change them NOW.
Week Three: Re-Patterning Grace: Changing Your Karmic Destiny; Moving from guilt to grace; discovering the karma you have in store for yourself so you can re-direct the lesson plan.
Week Four: Transformative Grace: Meeting Your Karma with Grace; Recognizing both pleasant and unpleasant ways that you are already meeting past karma; turning stumbling blocks into steppingstones.

What's an e-Group?
Your A.R.E. eGroup will meet in an interactive and dynamic online classroom called PBWorks. This new online classroom encourages student-centered learning while providing limitless access to lesson material, student comments, helpful links, audios, and videos. Learning in an online environment connects students from all over the world bringing the philosophy of Edgar Cayce right into your home.
In the virtual meeting room, you will have access to the written and audio/video materials prepared for you by Lynn Sparrow Christy. Every Wednesday, she will post a lesson along with exercises for you to practice during the week. Posting is very similar to sending an e-mail, except that all the e-mails are viewed within your virtual meeting room. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the site for your mentor and the other participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by the mentor to individuals.
Once you register for your A.R.E. eGroup, we will send you an e-mail from eGroups@edgarcayce.org detailing how to access and navigate the online classroom for the eGroup Karma and Destiny: Working with Universal Law to Change Your Life.
