Understanding karma through the body
This article serves as an interesting and practical introduction into the topic of karma and its effects upon the human body, it looks in particular along an important theme of how impure behaviour begins to change and impact the body. I’m using the story of Pinocchio’s nose as an allegory to illustrate what actually happens to the body when we create and introduce sources of ego into our own being.
In the case of Pinocchio, his nose would grow whenever he would tell a lie, the more lies he told the longer it would grow and only when he made a commitment to not telling anymore lies was he helped in having his appearance restored back to normal. For every significant action or intent there is a karmic reaction or effect, just like this fictional example there are real consequences for a range of harmful behaviours, including lying I might add.
I also want to bring clarity to a few popular misconceptions about karma, firstly whether in fact does it really exist or not? Secondly the belief that karma may only be something involving past lifetimes that is influencing your present life and thirdly, is something like an act of being run over by a car part of my karma?
Karma is real, karma does exist, in fact its affecting you right now whether you’re consciously aware of it or not, its not necessarily to be thought of as some sort of magical mana, the detrimental affects are what can be witnessed in the body itself and often it can be linked back to detrimental behaviours, choices, thoughts and mental interactions. Karma is part of a system of spiritual rules that are ever present and whilst its ultimately for a positive reason, a person can experience both desirable and undesirable consequences of their karma for both good and for worse. Most of my work focuses on karma and the body as this is the easiest to prove scientifically and likely the most important for others to understand. Karma doesn’t necessarily have to come in the form of changes to the body, there are many areas of a persons life that are subject to karmic influences if the need arises in order to produce a harsh lesson or pay off a particular karmic debt. However if a person goes too far or incorrectly attributes karma to an ordinary or unfortunate event, such as being involved in a car accident, this is a logical fallacy of uncritical thought and discernment that will eventually lead to mental illness such as schizophrenia, however certain events can be brought about as the deliberate result of these invisible string pullers in spirit and being able to tell the difference takes a great deal of time, experience, awareness and discernment to identify correctly.
Observing the effects of karma
Part of becoming enlightened was quickly realising there are invisible string pullers whom are responsible for serving out karma to individuals whom commit harmful behaviour such as acts of evil, sin or transgression. This frequently works by a spirit entity psychically connecting to the mind and body in order to produce a physical change to an area of the body such as a body part. Sometimes this is done by adding an impure energy into the body, which I often refer to as ‘ego’ or ‘impurity’. At times they prefer to directly change a body part or a feature of the face for example in order to produce different semi-permanent intuitive expressions. the physical results can be very similar, they’re more often than not something unpleasant, certain muscles may tighten, some may loosen and many things can produce a semi-permanent change to facial expression that can persist for weeks at a time making someone look much worse or more impure than they should and sometimes resulting in creating the appearance of a sinister eye or evil eye on one or both sides of the face.
Doing something impure will introduce defective changes and distortions into the body negatively impacting appearance, these are real changes resulting from karma that begin to shape, change and transform the body. Whilst telling lies is not quite as obvious as Pinocchio in the real world, in many cases the physical changes often occur much more slowly or incrementally over time, often during sleep when we have the least awareness, but one can learn to spot the signs of karma and it may or may not surprise you to learn that the shape and position of a person’s ears, nose, how the lips or chin may change shape, for example the nose may become longer, thinner, more hooked at the end or can even begin to expand in width or bulge as muscles in the face change which are done as part of consequences of particular harmful choices or behaviours. In the case of telling lies, I believe it is predominantly the eyes which are really changed in order to look more impure and this is the reason why its possible to intuitively spot signs of someone who has a problem with chronic lying and deception.
Learning what the basic offences are that are connected to a source of karma can be quite easy, often they are the things you would not want another person to do to you, although the personality is taken out of the equation and one doesn’t get to decide what particular form ones karma will take. Learning what the more nuanced areas are is much more difficult as it begins to be influenced by more subjective factors like individual character, circumstances and dynamic interaction. However I would like people to become more aware in general that their karma can immediately begin to transform their body in order that nobody has to suffer as the result of karmic defects and changes. These changes do work both ways, negative changes occur when one moves in a harmful direction and positive or beneficial changes begin to occur that begin to reverse the karma, often the same changes to appearance when a person has enough momentum to begin moving in a more positive direction and they demonstrate having learned the spiritual lesson behind their karma.
One of the most common expressions of karma I see is trauma that occurs to the cheeks, neck area, shoulders, face and scalp and from what I have observed this is very common among the population, these muscles seem to lose their natural plasticity first in response to sources of ego and as this increases they begin to lose the ability to hold their proper shape a bit like a jelly that hasn’t set in the fridge properly. As this happens the cheeks and the extremities of the face begin to inflate or bulge out to the sides and typically the skin and muscle over the neck begin to pull away from the neck area eventually creating unsightly folds of skin or double chins. In some individuals the face begins to appear round and immature and one of the worst offences seems to come from what are traditionally considered sexual perversions.
The body and mind are intricately connected and beings in spirit can interface the body through the mind in order to change something if they need to. Often these changes are quite subtle or unnoticeable at first, a muscle becomes loose, a muscle becomes tightened, a tendon changes here or there and subsequently different areas of the body begin to change which also impacts overall physical appearance as a reflection of inner purity. In order to undo a harmful deliberate change to the body, it usually requires a corresponding period of hard work or an act of selfless love or kindness, but the spiritual lesson still needs to be learned in order to prevent a repeat of the original problem.

The Purpose Behind Karma
The reasons why this happens is because from the dimension of spirit they are assisting in the process of human evolution and using karma in order to communicate vital lessons regarding what are considered harmful actions, choices, behaviours and intents of the mind based on knowledge of things that are considered too degrading, immoral and undesirable. This system can’t easily be misused in order to abuse someone as these choices aren’t made from a human ego personality, although occasionally over zealous decisions can be seen to be made which can later be challenged and reversed irrespective of whether or not you’re consciously aware of having had your karmic strings pulled recently or not, but I often approach a short period during meditation where this may happen or else it often happens during sleep. For myself, evidence of these physical changes which are clear to observe demonstrates that an outside intelligence has been interacting with human beings for some considerable time.
Through this process spiritual evolution begins to occur that refines a persons choices and behaviour relative to the world, as we become adapted to living our behaviours improve in quality over time and this enables a transformation of society so long as people begin to understand what the ego is and how karma functions. Individuals who do not understand or respect karma may seem to have a tendency to suffer more than those who do and those who do little to work on releasing their past karma or trauma will eventually begin to experience chronic physical problems that can damage the bones and skeleton or even cause further disease, its important to understand that not all disease is the result of karma however, we must still be mindful of things like sleep, exercise, food, diet and so on, but it helps to have awareness that the physical body is capable of going wrong in many ways by design when we don’t meet the required spiritual expectations in different areas of our lives, often the things that surrounding our relationships, our work, recreational activities and our inter-relating and communication with one another is a huge area in itself.
It was through mystical visions I was shown how our Earth is just one of many similar worlds, there are lower worlds where people are learning the essentials of how to operate and navigate the human form, very unpleasant by our own standards, there are mid level worlds like our own which seem to have a balance of people both good and evil or light and dark whom are learning and evolving spiritually, which requires greater tolerance.
There are likely many higher much more evolved worlds where the people have already mastered the essentials and moved onto more advance learning such as proper use of the mind in order to improve the quality of the experience that one can live, it becomes a lot less about karma and learning and more about the flow and spirit of living joyfully. Some higher worlds are similarly matched parallels to our own existing at a higher level that can be accessed through ascending, however others require a more permanent move or to be accessed through a new birth or incarnation, but it is not necessary to be born as a baby onto such a world, such is the abilities that spiritual beings have to manipulate reality directly.
In higher worlds the people have already mastered things like addiction, laziness, greed, racism, sexually perverse behaviours and they’ve developed their knowledge of the rights and wrongs concerning areas like the proper use of force, violence and warfare. Spiritual mastery is a significant part of the ascension process and once completed it would enable you to become free of karma, open up doors to different worlds, steer clear of sickness, disease, common illnesses and the suffering of the human experience including the dreaded corona viruses which have an evolutionary purpose behind them.
How to release karma
The ancient world were very familiar with massage and understood its healing potential, they were more in tune with spirituality and had a clear connection to the gods that oversaw their epoch of development. Simply by using oil and a deliberate and caring physical touch, it has a way of directing attention from the mind into an area of the body whereby one may begin to receive information and processing the lessons and causes behind the area of the body affected by karma.
This style of massage is often referred to as tantra massage, it’s part of a healing spiritual practise that enables one to release karma from different areas of the body that have been afflicted by physical changes. When carried out successfully muscles begin to change, release and reform, loose abdominal muscles may become tightened again to the point that the appearance of a sagging belly, deformed nose that is not actually due to obesity can be restored to its rightful normal appearance. Other muscles and tendons storing tension may release elsewhere providing relief from long held stress and tension in areas of the legs, shoulders and arms and in the case of myself I would learn to feel and notice when an area was being corrected, often a small change to the muscles in my lips or sometimes beneath an eye depending on the nature of the ego one has. There’s no better way for restoring physical attractiveness than becoming aware of ego, purifying it and learning to live in accordance with karma and spiritual expectations of living.
Positive acts of love, kindness, sharing, selfless service and hard work removes, pays-back and cancels out negative karma over time. Once the cycle of addressing and balancing past karma is complete, one can accrue positive karma which can be used for the purposes of spiritual manifestation or seeking out new and desirable experiences.
