Karma is the law of cause and effect.  It is the thread of events you have created with your emotions and choices on the Akashic Records.  It interacts with threads created by other people.

Sometimes people become involved in repeated patterns in their behaviour, experiences, relationships or career.  Looking at how these patterns became established on the Akashic Record will give new insights into the situation, allowing realisations that will free you from the situation, if you are ready.
