Spiritual Connections

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

How do you know if you are spiritually connected or karmic connected to someone? Many times I thought I had a spiritual connection to somebody and it turned out to be a karmic bond. Now I don't know what to believe. The same happened with synchronicity events. I thought they were a gift from the Universe, and they ended up being just expression of my unconscious mind. Could you please explain me what happened? Or clear this up for me?! Thanks!


Response:

Life and relationships are not divided into spiritual and karmic parts. All our connections with people are spiritual and they are also karmic. Spiritual development occurs through the awakening of consciousness and that is how we heal and transform our past with its limitations that we see as karma. So karmic situations and unconscious reflections serve our spiritual unfoldment if we allow it, just as much as insight and noticing spiritual synchronicities.

Love,
Deepak

  • Wow, what I was asking myself for a looong time!! Thanks for the info! Im a big fan of you Deepak Chopra:) I do your meditation challenges and Im looking forward to the next one!

  • I am newly awakened. My husband introduced me to a lot of Deepaks teachings. They were a little hard to understand. I did find Don Miguel Ruiz was more on my current level. I think like all of the great teachers out there they are saying the same things just in different ways. Your truth and my truth may be different but they are no less the truth for both of us. Its ok to question. That is what helps us on our journey. Sometimes its just best to take from the things that will help you and let the rest be.

  • I`ve known this guy for about eleven years, we`ve dated twice and the last time we dated was five years ago, last year he told me he loved me and about seven months ago I decided to kick him out of my life because he admitted to me that he wasn`t going to let me be happy with anyone else, but i`ve never gotten over him, i`ll tell myself i`m over him and then a few months later i`ll start having dreams of me and him and then i start missing him, it`s been this way for the past 5 to 7 years, what does this mean?

  • @Deepak and everyone else that has questioned the nature of my comments... Yogini's comment perfectly backs up my previous posts of... why can't you communicate on a level that is not academic spouting as your following is so large and diverse..... step off the pedestal and speak in plain english....I understand it but occassionally I have found your posts to be more ego than modest......

  • @nurys if you think my comments are negative in anyway then you haven't understood my questioning... I respect Deepak's achievements I am merely asking why he can't step down from his academic pedestal and relate more to his less comprehensive public. Just because you are successful does not and should not put you out of reach from the questions of those that contribute to your earnings each year. Btw you need to explore yourself more before posting @ me again as you are clearly a sheep. I'm not attacking your master i am questioning.... Where is the insult in questioning?

    Anna-Maria Southern // 2013-01-29 13:39:24 // //
  • @nurys im not being negative or pulling anyone down, I find it fascinating u find my questioning as this and that you deem my questioning to be, as it sounds in your post, unacceptable because of who I'm questioning. I respect Deepak for what he has achieved, I'm just holding him accountable for his sumwhat academic preaching... Btw you are currently a sheep if you are wondering, i doubt you are. Explore yourself more before posting your thoughts to me again please.

  • Well I asked my self the same questions.Is it the spirit or our intuinsions that I see things before they happened? when I dream of my mother is time to go and see the doctor.First time it was breast Cancer even my Doctor said see you next year I went for second opinion,and it was bread Cancer,same in 2003 with Brain Tumor.But even when I was a little girl,my father said I am going to see Mr. so & so,I do not hink I was more than 8 years old.I said to him don't bother he is dead,he did go any way and it was his funeral,we did not have phones at that time so I would have heard or see something.But since I started Meditation & Yoga since year 2000, I rememer these words. I am not so sure about the spelling. ( SAMA LAMA DASAY SO DUNK ) = I plant the tulips,they grow they bloom & they die.) & my thoughts go further & saying but there more bulbs multiply from the same tulip,Our Children our grand children and our new generation) Some times I do not listen to my dreams or my inner thoughts & wish I had,but we are all humans.Let life take its path.xxoo:)

  • @fabiola before spending $ to find yourself find in your mind and in your heart just for 30mins who are you, really, are you being yourself or do you have a facade? Question why... Who do want to be? Ask your 10 year old self.... Who do I want to be when I grow up.. Not what... Who? Honest? Real? Loved? Happy? You say you have issues.... Issues are self created, work systematically on breaking them down. You are in control. You create your destiny we all have Choices, we all have options regardless of your situation.

  • Money is not the enemy. If you believe that you have already given it power over you. It is simply a physical representation of energy. Ego can rule our relationship with money and it can also rule our relationship with our gifts and talents, as it has the potential to do in everything. Watching our minds for labels, energy, and what pulls us from neutral mind will reward us with wisdom and peace.

    Julie Brown Gardner // 2013-01-29 06:35:50 // //
  • everything revolves around owning or not owning a person,situation or inactment.so long as you own it you try to help out to the best, you try to wriggle the person out of a so to say an awkward situation,but if and when you disown it it is all over and you start giving only as much as is minimal required. i think i conveyed .did i?

  • My husband has seen me meditate for hours which feels like minutes to me, I've cleared clouds, I've healed him with just my hand I've turned my staff to meditation. Do I make $ off it? No Do I believe in capitalism Yes but when it comes to unique gifts that you have practiced, tap into to and realized, when you see or know of a person in need I don't believe in capitalism.. U do it for free because it's not you're right to sell it, I had a neurological assessment 1 yr ago and parts of my brain that shouldn't hv been active when asleep lit up the screen for half an hr. I choose to live a normal life not capitalize on my gifts, I give them freely. I hope my positive energy in this lifetime and my karma and the amount of people I have steered towards spirituality is held in account.

  • Who do you think is Right? “Where is the consciousness located? Outside the brain” Adrian Ferent My theory explains the Consciousness is outside the brain. The Consciousness theory of professor Dr. Sir Roger Penrose (UK) and professor Stuart Hameroff (USA) explains the consciousness is inside the brain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5XYf1GJBhg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-szIc4ED4RI&feature=youtu.be

  • At fabiola... My issue is the idealism of complete freedom of the human mind should be his main drive don't you think? $ shouldn't be a factor at all.... Releasing full human potential even if I lived homeless and had one meal a day would be fulfillment enough. I'm lucky to be able to support friends and family through financial and emotional help bt I always teach them medication, try to explain the limitless potentials of yourself to make, create, see and change. We are human but we actually are limitless. You just need to meditate concentrate and focus with every cell. Turn it, focus it and know, not believe, just know....

In a way this it's it . $$$$$ making ... Right . .?? He has the Right too... It's his way, of making a living and he is very very successful . He is a very kind and living person I think ... What can we do this world is Capitalist. Everthing is $$$$$ money money .

  • Also at Jessica I don't need peace, i hv that i jst want an answer from him. In this world if you hold yourself up in esteem and an expert... Expect to be challenged by a thinker and someone who when meditates always meditates in red...

    Anna-Maria Southern // 2013-01-29 05:18:14 // //
  • The short answer is we are connected to whoever we are sharing an emotion or an experience with. It doe snot last forever, only during the time of sharing.

    Carolyn McCudden // 2013-01-29 05:16:30 // //
  • @jessica I hv no issues w Deepak whatsoever as I stated he's on the right track bt I've noticed not all of us are at the same comprehension level and im confused he doesn't explain on a level certain people can understand what he is saying... Yes im challenging him sumwhat a)that's who I am b)I want to make sure he's not an academic who doesn't understand his following.. I'm not being disrespectful at all im jst questioning

  • So interesting

    Claudia Lúcar // 2013-01-29 05:11:49 // //
  • At Julian who r u talking to in ur comments?

    Anna-Maria Southern // 2013-01-29 05:04:58 // //
  • Anna-Maria, I think he is answering the question. He states that karmic bonds are not "divided" or "separate" than spiritual connections. He's simply explaining that they are (can be) all connections/reflections to serve us in our spiritual growth and development. That makes sense to me. I'm sensing that you may have issues with Deepak that don't relate to this discussion..? I suggest writing him a personal note or letter. Who knows if that will work but I hope you find peace with it.

    Jessica Cristen Pruitt // 2013-01-29 05:04:14 // //
  • You can believe in whatever you want, we will all find our truth and what actually happens in the end when for some.. It's abit late don't u think? I'm jst interested to see if Deepak bothers reading these comments, holding yourself up as a leading spiritual guide it'd b nice to know if he bothers to read the comments to what he spouts.... He is on the correct path, I just wonder if he's been distracted by ego. He's only human after all.....

  • I would appreciate an opinion from you Deepak,not a minion, as to my previous 2 comments. I turned all of my staff onto you until I started following you on fb and realized you're jst another academic making money spouting feel good theories to the general masses. Don't be mistaken I do agree with you on some points you jst seem out of sync with what you say, what you do and the life you are living....

    Anna-Maria Southern // 2013-01-29 04:32:04 // //
  • I dont believe in synchronicity... Actually..

    Petra Turisdatter // 2013-01-29 04:25:54 // //
  • Master? Hence the issue the current human condition... Followers are mindless sheep. Use your brain, understand the human brain is underused and lose your boundaries, see what you can achieve. Is this not your teaching Deepak or do u revel that your sheep call you master?? Of course it pays the bills but how can you accept a following of people that do not question and challenge. If that's what you prefer then you are not the man I hoped you were. For anyone thinking of attacking me over my opinion you obviously need to read more of his books, there you go Deepak abit of free PR for your book sales.....

  • You can be victimized and the had it explained by "karma, spirituality and other new age or religous related stuff". But it is pure power-abuse and can be related to the stockholm-syndrome because you anint aware of the reel issue.. REAL SPIRITUAL CONNECTIONS WON-T CAUSE YOU HARM...

    Silvia Jorge // 2013-01-29 04:10:42 // //
  • Spiritual connections are conscious remembering a of another's soul as part of our soul group and we help each other in love an harmony as we view each other as part of ourselves and our own life and existence. Karmic is when there is a recurring lesson that has a pull that is strong but painful and often limits and places barriers for us to move on until we master that persons archetype energy presenting itself to us and our life. These can be open enemies or people we are at odds with or love partner that are toxic. Find the repeating relationship and see the pattern of the lesson. Flip it around to see the positive aspects so you see what you need to release then embrace the positive cutting the cords from the other... Your Guides will help you discern just listen closely and watch what is happening as if watching a movie in slow motion. Everything is by design in the Universe... There are no mistakes. :) I am an open channel with guides and angels working professionally gifted from childhood. They talk and appear to me regularly and I openly read the Akashic Records which Michael opened to me.. The Archangel that is. The synchronicity is the timing that now we must address it as it is pertinent and correct timing in the Universe as so by design.

  • Can you ever answer a direct question with a more directive answer? These people come to you for advice and you regurgitate borrowed theory, your followers buy your books, they are your income, I got given your book and was quite fascinated until I realized from following you on fb that you derive more from spouting your knowledge than practicing it. I could borrow knowledge and quote bt choose to not to, to create a following to make money. I would respect you more if for once you answered a direct query With a more direct answer and actually healed as in your book you claim is possible without medicine. Those who can't teach surely applies to you. Please feel free to prove me wrong.

    Anna-Maria Southern // 2013-01-29 04:03:33 // //
  • It's not karma or spirituality, it's the secrets, silence and power abuse that keeps unhealthy connections alive. I know. Spirituality and karma are often used to legalize dirty abuse by sadist or power addicted....

  • you know by the theory of quantum physics we are all connected .. we cannot help but spiritually work together as a connected whole but to help all evolve that are not as evolved..those who are more aware of the light bring about more awareness as it will just be a natural progression to do so..Reality is a projection of our own emotional reactions to stimulus that presents it's self into our energy field.. we can not help but to co create a reality together as our different perspectives and singular perspectives create reality.. so yes as we are the light we play off our perceptions together to create creation..and of course that is the lessons that we create to push evolution forward.. truly we bring about worlds such as karma.. and perfection.. just to describe the experience of life and the need for life to evolve the spirit.. please visit my site www.sexassacred.com

    Annette Marks // 2013-01-29 02:24:40 // //
  • Makes sense its a very good explanation between the distinction of spiritual connection and kharma. The questioun is how does one get to awakeneing of unconsciousnass faster in order to heal past trauma ie kharma?

    Annette Marks // 2013-01-29 02:23:50 // //
  • Relationships: how would you define karma, or cycle of, a connection, that was separated; like at (point of birth). Or as a young child. how with spirit,and also karmic, do they stand if they were (not) aloud to be able; to see each other? If the development occurs through awakening of consciousness, and that is how we heal and transform our past. with limitations... and based on that, we see unresolved karma... If karmic situations and unconscious reflections, serve a purpose in our spiritual enforcement. then where does one handle himself if say , 10-11 years later they bump into each other on accident. How does a "man" form some spiritual reinforcement? If 'Memories" of childhood a damaged...?

  • Thanks, I needed to hear this.

    Eva Bouchard // 2013-01-29 02:18:33 // //
  • It's like she read about spirituality from a textbook and the people in her life is an equation with right and wrong answers. Life is not an exact science.

  • Wise words indeed

    Judith Kusel // 2013-01-29 02:15:27 // //
  • Ive seen this happen, even without having a relationship with the person who awakens our spiritual consciousness.

  • Bad transtlation in Romanian Bing :) Maybe this one can help more, I have done some corrections. Thanks Question: How do you know if you are spiritually connected or karmic connected to someone? Many times I thought I had a spiritual connection to somebody and it turned out to be a karmic bond. Now I don't know what to believe. The same happened with synchronicity events. I thought they were a gift from the Universe, and they ended up being just expression of my unconscious mind. Could you please explain me what happened? Or clear this up for me?! Thanks! Response: Life and relationships are not divided into spiritual and karmic parts. All our connections with people are spiritual and they are also karmic. Spiritual development occurs through the awakening of consciousness and that is how we heal and transform our past with its limitations that we see as karma. So karmic situations and unconscious reflections serve our spiritual unfoldment if we allow it, just as much as insight and noticing spiritual synchronicities. Love, Deepak Traducere Întrebare: Cum ştim dacă suntem spiritual conectati sau avem legături karmice cu cineva? De multe ori m-am gândit ca am avut o conexiune spirituală cu cineva şi s-a dovedit a a fi o legătură karmică. Acum nu ştiu ce să mai cred. Acelaşi lucru s-a întâmplat cu evenimente de sincronicitate. M-am gândit ca au fost un cadou din partea Universului, dar s-au dovedit a fi doar exprimarea inconştientului meu. Aţi putea, vă rog, să-mi explicaţi ceea ce s-a întâmplat? Sau să clarificaţi acest lucru pentru mine? Vă mulţumesc! Răspuns: Viaţa şi relaţiile nu sunt împărţite în parte spirituală şi parte karmică. Toate conexiunile noastre cu oamenii sunt şi spirituale şi karmice în egală măsură. Dezvoltarea spirituală se produce prin trezirea constiinţei si astfel ne putem vindeca şi transforma trecutul nostru cu limitările sale pe care le înţelegem drept karma. Astfel situaţiile karmice şi reflecţiile inconştiente servesc dezvoltării şi desăvârşirii noastre spirituale, dacă le vom permite, la fel de mult ca introspecţia şi observând sincronicităţile spirituale. Cu dragoste, Love, Deepak
