The seventh Law of Karma is the Law of Focus. This law states that “you can not do two things at the same time.” This refers to the idea that if you are focused on the principal of spiritual values, then it becomes difficult to focus on such feelings of impatience, anger, sadness, greed or any other feeling that only creates angst or upset for your body, mind or soul.
If you were to think of other times in your life when you became highly focused on something that fascinated you or an interest that captivated your every waking moment, how likely were you to become sidetracked by more troubling feelings? When I reflect on my own life, I see it to be 100 percent true. When I had each of my children I was absolutely focused on loving, caring, nurturing and providing for all of their waking needs when they were newborns. I didn’t have any time, interest or energy to spend on anything else. They were my complete focus each time, and I was so very happy in that space.
My next focus that captivated me was when I decided to write a book. I decided to devote one day per work week to write the book that had been first introduced to me by a master when I did past-life regression work with a client some 18-years previously. When I finally decided to write my first book, “Stepping Into My Happiest Lifetime,” I did it with absolute passion. I would review tapes and transcripts from each session and veraciously write for 10 to 12 hours each time. I consciously pushed daily distractions aside and focused my time and energy on my passion. One year later, I finished the book and it is currently being shopped by publishers.
Deciding to focus on spiritual values is no different. Developing the ability “to go within” and gather my own messages from the masters was another pivotal point in my life. I carved out the time and space for the spiritual practice of meditating for 15 years! Eventually and once I finally asked for them, I began to receive my own messages as well as the peace and centered feelings from my daily meditation.
Of course, life still happened around me. I continued to have a full caseload of clients while launching an online platform for publishing my work. There were the same life interruptions like a car that might break down, my kitchen barely holding on with original appliance from the 70’s, and a four-year bout with osteoarthritis. Yes, life still happened! But when you are focused on spiritual values, it is as if there is a thin transparency between you and any stress or anxiety from the situations.
It is as if you have become the observer and do not have to take on the angst of the moments. This is what focusing on spiritual principals has done for me in my life.

“To go within” is the theme for September, and it is infused throughout my radio show, blog posts, newsletter and other columns. It is a crucial piece of the 12 laws of karma.
I would love for you to share something that you’ve decided to make a focus in your life! If it is a spiritual value, which one is it? How has it helped you?
