Understanding Family Karma & Harmonising Complex Family Dynamics | Jonni Pollard #070

Vital Veda Podcast Banner: Family Karma & Harmonizing Complex Family Dynamics with Jonni Pollard
Karma  कर्म, a concept that is often misunderstood by most, commonly translated as "action that binds", and it is basically any action that is determining our direction or pathway in life. 
When it comes to those we call our family, our karma acts as the underlying universal intelligence that bound us to these people. 
Understanding this concept, how to transcend and work through our already existing karma and how to avoid creating more of it, is a fundamental aspect of the path towards liberation or moksha, as called in the Vedic sciences. 
In this episode we not only dive into the concept of karma, but also explore how it intertwines with our familial relationships and how one can work through one's karma to reap the benefits of a frictionless life (kriya क्रिया).

In this Episode we Discuss:

An Introduction to Karma

The traditional definition of karma कर्म is "action that binds". 
  • Any action that is determining our direction or pathway in life
Karma is the underlying universal intelligence that ensures everything stays on track moving in the direction of its final destination (liberation [ moksha ] or dissolution). 
  • Consciousness is like a river moving towards the ocean; and karma acts like the riverbanks that guide the water (consciousness). 
  • It is a non-punitive, definitive, strong boundary that nature provides for consciousness to evolve.   
  • It is only through swelling that a river manages to escape the limits of its banks. In the same way, when one achieves higher states of consciousness one is able to transcend karma and move past its limits. 

Karma and Dharma

Karma is the force that drives dharma धर्मा into action
  • Dharma धर्म is an individual’s duty in any given time that leads to the evolution of the individual soul & the collective consciousness simultaneously

An Introduction to Family Karma

Family karma is the bond (or bondage) that ties us to souls that we have traveled through many incarnations with, to the point where we are bound not only spiritually but on a genetic level. 
It is the karma of families that is the most powerful, impactful and more challenging to resolve, and yet it is also the most liberating when we get to the root of the challenge it presents us.
The various degrees of intensity family karma can take.
  • For some it may be a strong force that can be either loving, fierce or both. For others it may be a very mild force that doesn’t seem relevant at all.

  • The intensity of this karma may fluctuate during a lifetime/lifetimes. 

Managing Difficult Family Relationships

When going through periods of intensity that present a real challenge to us, the key is to surrender to it and embrace everything that this period is and entials. 
  • Patience and compassion are fundamental. 
Understanding the role that every party plays within that relationship and that reciprocity is always meant to be honored
Setting healthy boundaries that create a sense of separateness that often allows others to have time and space to reflect on the degree to which the relationship is important to them or not, and whether they are willing to accept the terms by which you are willing to interact. 

Broken Families

In some cases it seems like the most appropriate thing to do is to simply cut off family members from one’s life. That is not wrong in-and-of-itself. 
  • If you did decide to do internthis, ask the following questions
    • To what extent does this family member(s) consume your awareness on a day-to-day basis? 
    • How much time are you involuntarily having to invest in relationships that you have declared that you don’t want to be in or don’t want to have? 
      • Despite being absent or not participating in these relationships, if you are still consumed by them internally, then that means that the karma is still lively and it is therefore a relevant thing to be addressed
Jonni’s method to find resolve in these situations:
  1. Start by auditing yourself, your assumptions, your prejudices and the extent to which you are seeing these people in their limited conditional state, instead of seeing them in their true light: as divine souls on a journey of awakening.
  2. Judge the degree to which you are lacking compassion and insight into their condition, along with the extent to which perhaps you might be hypocritical in your judgments. 
  3. Ponder the length to which you would make yourself available if they were to reciprocate in this internal reflection.
    • Be honest with yourself and take responsibility for the role you are supposed to play in this relationship. Are you willing to put in that effort? If not then there’s work to be done on your end. 
  4. Effectively make yourself available to the extent that this can be a shared experience.
    • If you are willing to be open hearted and put in the effort to heal the relationship but the other cannot reciprocate then it’s ok to set boundaries. 
      • But don’t take your leave still bounded to your resentment, disdain, self-righteousness and/or feeling like a victim. Let go of all of that extra weight that serves no purpose. 

The Current Global State of Affairs & Its Impact On Family Relationships and Friendships

Families are being torn apart by opposing world-views & lifestyle/health choices. 
  • What is happening on the planet right now is triggering the deepest primal wounds & fears of everybody. 
It’s paramount to allow ourselves to have our own opinion while also honoring that of others, no matter if they are aligned with ours or not
  • Projecting our choices onto others is what creates this great divide. 
Shifting the focus from worrying about the choices others make, to how our relationships are being torn apart because we can’t see how the fear that underlines our differences is affecting us.   
  • Being able to see beyond the veil of fear, worry and concern and shedding light on the love that ultimately unites us all
Letting go of the need to be right in hopes of being able to collectively transcend this divisiveness.

Nature's Divine Arrangement of a Global Pandemic

The current world-wide state of affairs is a consequence of us being grossly disconnected from fundamental laws of nature such as the governing system of Mother Earth and Mother Divine (consciousness)
It is a moment for us to face the current state in which the collective consciousness is in & what nature is trying to tell us, and repay the debt we have within ourselves and with each other. 
  • We have to face all of this not with fear, anger or trepidation of the future, but with an open heart, and trying to envision the type of world in which we want to live once we come out of all of this; then let our actions guide us in that direction. 
We have been placed in a very constrained reality right now and been given time to go into ourselves and confront who we are, what matters and the pathway to our own liberation.

Relatives That Are In The Very End Stages Of Life

    • Pranamaya Kosha (Vital Energy Sheath)
    • Manomaya Kosha (Mental Body)
    • Vijnanamaya Kosha (Wisdom or Awareness Body)
    • Anandamaya Kosha (Bliss Body)

The Psychology of a Ninth Month Old Foetus

At this tail end of the pregnancy, the foetus becomes endowed with all its characters - the five senses (gandharsadi), intelligence (buddhi) and the physical anatomy and physiology are basically fully developed.

What the foetus also acquires at this time is an ability to remember it’s past lives. But along with these memories come an overwhelming amount of information.


Put yourself in the bare slimy feet of a 9-month-old foetus. A variety of compendiums start rushing through its mind:

  • Visions of thousands of variegated living forms,
  • The taste of a variety of food and drinks,
  • The taste, sensation and texture of having sucked breast milk from many different species,
  • Having gone through a cyclic process of birth and death, with repeated birth from thousands of female genitals (Yonis) from a variety of species.
  • Memories of sufferings, miseries, sorrow (Dukha), insults and criticism that were not averted and never resolved.
  • Good and bad deeds from past lives cause confusion and clouds the memory in the little foetus brain as it attempts to link these deeds with past sufferings.

Thus, the quality of mental and physical characteristics which are developing in the 9th month of pregnancy depends upon the good deeds of previous births (Purvajanma).


And then...
The moment the foetus passes through the female genitals and contacts with oxygen (Vaishnava Vayu), it forgets even the most painful sufferings and miseries, previous lives and good and bad deeds.

UFOs and Sentient Beings | Colonel Leeds III #008

Are humans really the only highly evolved beings on this planet today?

Perhaps consider broadening your horizon into more subtle realms and study history a bit deeper than what the norm has taught with their limited chronological compilations.

In this episode we touch on a BUNCH of various events, conspiracies, esoteric ideas, all considering sentient beings other than our human selves, and of course, other than the plants and animals we love, recognise as sentient beings and care about, o so much.

But it’s not just other sentient beings. We also explore history and historical events with a more holistic approach and with a wider lens than the close minded status quo ideology that we were taught in history class.

By the way what we talk about is all very vedic.

Veda is the knowledge governing the unity of the laws of nature and human consciousness of which yoga, mediation and Ayurveda come from.

We touch on a lot of parallels with the Veda and since we only touch on this, I urge you to check out the show notes on where I write about these aspects in more detail.

Bill has a lot to say, so this episode is really a forspisher of many ideas for you to consider, and if you want to dive deeper, you can study these further yourself and check out the show notes.

About Colonel William Leeds III

After law school Bill entered into the army around 24 years old and was active in service and reserves for approximately 24 years, including being a colonel for 6 years, which is the second highest rank after a general.

Being in the US military meant Bill could travel anywhere for free on any aeroplane. So, he found a love for travelling but then he learnt Transcendental Meditation in 1976 and learnt to travel inside.

As his consciousness expanded as he evolved, he was exposed to government’s interactions with aliens and other sentient beings. Since then, he has extensively researched the topic along with other military and government colleagues from USA and other countries.

Now Bill is 78 years old, retired and enjoys meditating and panchakarma, while still keeping up to date, researching and sharing his library and knowledge about conspiracy phenomenons.


In this Episode we Discuss:

The Roswell UFO incident, 1947
Reported in the book “Crash at Corona” (1992) by Stanton Friedman.
A saucer crashed at Roswell, New Mexico, and several alien bodies were recovered.
Bill was appointed to interview the first man who saw the crash.

Paul Hellyer - former defence minister of Canada.
The current big speaker who know a great deal as he was the minister of defence for Canada.

Alien Races:
Paul Hellyer used to count there was 51, now he counts over 81, including:

  • The Greys - most common race of aliens.
  • Anunnaki - helping our civilisation grow. Did DNA work with us to help us mine gold.
  • Reptilians

Some of the Aliens were in contact with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He taught them how to know themselves.

Human Qualities in Aliens
Some of the races, particularly “The Greys,” have emotions and have trouble laughing. They approached Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to help with this. They reproduced through cloning and used human females to produce hybrids.

They used various communication methods, mostly by telepathy.

They have been here for hundreds of thousands of years. They are friendly. They don’t eat us.

Secret US Alien Executive Agreement

President Dwight Eisenhower signed an executive agreement with the Aliens in 1958. You can obtain the agreement documents from Stanton Friedman.

It was released by the Freedom Information Act.

A treaty force between the republican of United States of America AND [the rest is blocked out]. It was a treaty not with a country, but with something else, like the aliens.

He gave authorisation for them to uses certain bases on land and under the sea in the continent of the United States without interference. Also perhaps Antartica.

The Reasons Aliens are Here:

  • They are here to help us. They don’t want us to destroy the planet.
  • Nuclear warfare destroyed Mars hundreds of thousands of years ago. The Aliens don’t want that to happen here on earth.

The Atlantean Root Race - one of the root races as a stage in human evolution in esoteric cosmology. Root races existed mainly on now-lost continents millions of years ago.

Hanumans or Adams bridge - A bridge between India and Sri Lanka.

Dated 18,400 years ago, this was proof of an ability to build advanced technology.

Why other sentient beings are interested in and care about planet earth and humans.

Evolution process:

Akasha (space) - mineral - atoms - molecules - plants - animals - humans.

It all starts with consciousness.

We are going through that process in meditation like Vedic Meditation and Transcendental Meditation and advanced development techniques like Siddhis (a sequence of creating a perfected human with paranormal powers the way nature intended a human to be constructed and manifested).

The sentients beings intervene with human civilisation to maintain peace on earth. They have done this by:

  • Turning off nuclear systems and delivery methods. Four times in Russia they stopped the firing of nuclear weapons.
  • Aliens will shut down the current nuclear button of Kim Jong-un, North Korea’s supreme ruler. He wouldn’t be able to do it.

The main countries of the world know the aliens have been here since the 50s and 60s.

Flying Saucers

Vimanas

According to the Vedas, a Vimana is any self-moving aerial car sometimes serving as a seat or throne to the Gods, sometimes self-moving and carrying its occupant through the air. It can be a temple or palace flying in the sky.

RigVeda, verses 1.164.47-48 are evidence for the idea of "mechanical birds":

kṛṣṇáṃ niyânaṃ hárayaḥ suparṇâ / apó vásānā dívam út patanti
tá âvavṛtran sádanād ṛtásyâd / íd ghṛténa pṛthivî vy ùdyate
dvâdaśa pradháyaś cakrám ékaṃ / trîṇi nábhyāni ká u tác ciketa
tásmin sākáṃ triśatâ ná śaṅkávo / 'rpitâḥ ṣaṣṭír ná calācalâsaḥ

"Dark the descent: the birds are golden-coloured; up to the heaven they fly robed in the waters.
Again descend they from the seat of Order, and all the earth is moistened with their fatness."
"Twelve are the fellies, and the wheel is single; three are the naves. What man hath understood it?
Therein are set together spokes three hundred and sixty, which in nowise can be loosened." ("trans." Griffith)

Swami Dayananda Saraswati interpreted these verses to mean:

"jumping into space speedily with a craft using fire and water...containing twelve stamghas (pillars), one wheel, three machines, 300 pivots, and 60 instruments."

America found Vimanas in a cave in 2013 in Afghanistan but it is protected by forcefields.

Paul Hellyer - look up for more information.

Governments interest in Aliens knowledge to develop advanced technology for war, peace and to clean up our planet. Particularly less fossil fuel and nuclear fuel.

Book: “Someone Else Is On The Moon” by George H Leonard. Knapp Publishing House 1976.

Includes satellite photographs of buildings, structures, towers, mining equipment and bridges on the moon.

Americans have been to the moon and mars in saucers. Our knowledge in that area is 20-40 yeas ahead of what people know, classified at the “J-level.”

Vedic Eras (Yugas)

4 Yugas: The historical eras according the Vedas, denoting that we were more evolved before in previous eras.

Yuga = Time period. Epac/Era.

Kali Yuga

  • “The age of ignorance.”
  • The feminine aspect of the destruction operator (Shiva).
  • 432, 000 Years. Started 5000 years ago at the end of the Mahabharata war (4 million people at Kudu Chekra).
  • Scheduled into Kali Yuga there is an age of enlightenment which started on 12th of January 1975. This lasts for 10,000 years.
  • The best part of it is camaraderie at the beginning, the most exciting.
  • Peaks right at the end of it (10K years) and then go into rapid decline back into Kali Yuga.
  • To do: Let go of defective elements of your behavioural repertoire like unnecessary tenacity (fears etc.). Replace these with effective elements and allow enlightenment to come in.

Dwapara Yuga

  • Ended at Mahabharata war.
  • Purer than Kali Yuga.
  • If someone was stressed, they automatically looked that way, destruction operator dominant.
  • Good guys really good, bad guys really bad.
  • Dwa = two division of one/duality.
  • 2x longer than Kali.
  • People could drink a lot of ghee since they were 10ft tall and stronger. This is where drinking of ghee practice came from and this is where it should stay.

Treta Yuga

  • Purer than Dwapara.
  • 3/4 times longer than Kali Yuga.
  • Knower, knowing and known was bound up by one.
  • A lot of harmony. Really on cusp of Being (Absolute).

Sat Yuga

  • Almost inconceivable to us. Being/Transcendence.
  • 4x the length of Kali Yuga.
  • Can be seen in vertical time.
  • When you mediate (Vedic Meditation) you go through each Yuga. Sat Yuga is when you transcend.

Kings List

Kings of Persia (Present day Iraq).

Lists of Kings going back hundreds of thousands of years.

Blue Skin Humans

The skin of characters in Indian history, (aka Indian mythology), are blue coloured due to a different elemental makeup. Akasha (space) is dominant, rather than prthvi (earth).

Still some blue-tinged skin people reside in the High Antes Mountains - western mountains of South America.

How Bill becoming younger with Panchakarma.

Cleaning solar panels on mars.

More evidence showing advanced civilisations at work:

  • Maninja Darrel - Excavation in 1992 showing large civilisations in Turkey 10-15 thousand years ago.
  • Urn found in Peru. Chadians writings from the time of Abraham.
  • Anunaki brought civilisation. Now we are finding bones all over the world of people 10-15ft tall, particularly in Russia, Lavant and caves in Northern America.

Why Aliens don’t expose themselves to us.

Evolutionary Journey of Reincarnation

Transmigration of souls stops at humans. Humans are the most evolutionary living beings. Everything is evolution.

Area 51 - Huge basis underneath the sea. Area 51 underground.

Sentient beings are working with the military to develop computer chips.

Nordic Aliens - humanoid extraterrestrials who resemble Nordic-Scandinavians.

Assesses the state of regions of the earth through analysing cow blood.

Dowsing (Water Witching) - a type of divination employed in attempts to locate ground water, buried metals, ores, gemstones, oil, grave-sites and many other objects and materials without the use of scientific apparatus.

Similarly, in sleep we contact our higher self similar to our brothers and sisters.

Ayurveda’s 4 pillars of good health - Sleep, Meditation, Abhyanga, Pranayama (breathing exercise).

Bill adds a 5th pillar of health: laughter.

Tonic (rasayana) as “internal abhyanga” - Milk, honey and ghee. *Honey should be double to amount (weight) to ghee.

Sanskrit - the power is in the silence in between the sounds.

Dr. John Hagelin - President of Maharishi University of Management.

The level of quarks and quacks, God particle. The level of the subtlest level can control quarks and quacks, can control electrons and protons, can control molecules, can control the relative.

Future discussion with Bill:

  • Loss of the libraries of earth - our lost history.
  • Archaeology finding physical objects that elude to prior civilisations.
  • Inka in Peru.
  • The sleeping prophet.

For the who want to contact Bill to dive deeper into these areas, contact me and I will connect you.
