17 Friendly Gestures That Create Good Karma

17 Friendly Gestures That Create Good Karma

When we create good karma in our lives today, we create more happiness and fulfillment for our futures tomorrow.

Karma is a universal law that affects everyone, all of the time.  It is the consequence of our actions.  Karma brings back to us what we are putting out into the universe, be it love, hate, humor, sadness, stress, excitement or anything else we chose to project.

Like the ripples in a pond that radiate out from a pebble dropping into the water, karma pulses out after each of our actions and choices, and it affects the future unfolding in front of us.

Offering kindness to others is a wonderful way to bring happiness to others, and it is also a way to create good karma in our own lives.  When we put kindness and love out into the world, the after-effects of these choices bring more kindness and love into tomorrow’s reality.  For this reason, offering a friendly gesture to another person is an action that is always worth the effort!

Here are a few friendly gestures that create good karma.  How many of these actions are a part of your daily routine? 

1. Smile at people throughout the day.

2. Be patient with others.

3. Give a hug to someone you care about.

4. Pat someone on the back.

5. Offer a handshake.

6. Open a door for someone else.

7. Let a car in ahead of you while in traffic.

8. Use the words “please” and “thank you” habitually.

9. Share your knowledge and skills with others.

10. Be interested in what others have to say (ask questions, listen, etc).

11. Own up to any mistakes you make, and offer genuine apologies.

12. Give compliments freely.

13. Stop to ask someone “are you ok?” when they look distressed.

14. Help someone who looks lost or overwhelmed.

15. Stick up for someone who’s being made fun of or treated poorly.

16. Forgive people for their mistakes.

17. Focus on the good in others.

    Andrea…I love all of your suggested gestures…and I do try to do most of them, as often as possible. The one thing, I will add…and it is just an ‘add-on’ to one of the ones you already listed…is regarding the handshake. Whenever I shake hands with someone, I use my other hand, and gently place it on the other side of their hand…so that I am enveloping, or ‘hugging’ their hand. I feel more connected with that person, that way (and I like to think that they feel a connection, too). Just a thought!! Blessings, Andrea! (and…I have ‘shared’ your article on my FB page!) Losha.

    Great tips and a lovely description of karma. Creating a good karma is much easier than we think. Following and applying just a few of these on the list, we could make the planet a much friendlier and kinder place to live in.

    Loved it! We also create good karma when we hold on the door on the underground(metro) (one day I did that, a few weeks later someone did the same for me). Or simply pinking up our and others trash, make our environment much cleaner!
