As she has planted, so does she harvest; such is the field of karma. ~ Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Most of us are aware of what a carbon footprint is. There are plenty of online calculators to determine what yours is and how you can reduce it.

But what about your karmic footprint? If you’re like me, you believe that we’re all connected. You realize that all of your actions and thoughts can (and do) ripple not only throughout your own life, but out to others’ lives as well.

Our Karmic Footprint is the effect our daily actions have on the world around us. It’s the influence we have on each other’s lives, our communities – the entire planet. Picture your energetic karmic footprint as a wave that ripples out to others.  Its effect is far-reaching and powerful beyond measure.

If we do our best to reduce our negative impact, so much can be done for the good of humanity.

Think about it for a moment: what kind of energetic mark are you leaving on the world?

Are your thoughts toxic to yourself and others? Or are you sending out positive energy to everyone around you, inviting even more positivity into your life?

How can you improve your karmic footprint?

  • Don’t be a part of negativity: Don’t engage in gossip, useless arguing or being mean to someone who is marginalized or considered to be “different” in society.
  • Do something good for someone else, once a day: Write a letter to a friend, send your Mom a card in the mail, buy your coworker lunch or deliver homemade cookies to a neighbor. Small, unexpected gestures sometimes make the biggest impact.
  • Start each day off with good intentions: No matter how crappy yesterday was, each day is a new opportunity for a fresh start, positive attitude and for spreading a little sunshine.

We cannot tread this earth without leaving a footprint – each and every one of us leaves a footprint on the earth and the lives of those around us.   All of our actions have consequences, even after our physical deaths.

PS: My article “Soul Family Connections” is featured on Cirkla this month! Go check it out! The word “Cirkla” is Swedish for circle, which “represents a coming together in unity. It also represents this fragile and yet powerful Earth that we call home.”

Founder Amy Putkonen writes,  “My hope is that Cirkla will help to bring our global community together.” I’m honored to be a guest poster on Cirkla. Thanks, Amy!
