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.

Which of these friendly gestures do you use the most in your day-to-day life?  Are there any other friendly gestures you would recommend for building good karma?  Comment below and let me know!

All the best,

    Thank you Andrea. It is nice to have these reminders once in a while. We see way too much about negative behaviors and how they are disruptive to our lives and health. But more and more I find myself looking for the positive and uplifting articles about taking care of ourselves on the path. Mike GR, MI

    LOVE these tips! Another one I love (and correct me if I’m wrong because I’m no expert but it works for me) … Offer to pay for people. One of my jobs is in the mall so I always ask my co-workers before I officially leave the mall can I get them anything, whether it be a water bottle a coffee something to eat … most times they do decline the offer and sometimes they graciously accept and offer me money but I never take it but I do feel as though they appreciate it. I don’t do this because I want everyone to like me or think Im rockerfella but its just a nice gesture that I believe in return will not only bring me good karma but also attract money my way. The better I feel about money and not worry about 2 dollars here and there the more I seem to have. If I used to say “hmm i could go for a coffee but I really could save more by not” I feel like I actually had less money then. Very strange but just reaffirms my belief in the Law of Attraction.

    Bobby-that’s a great idea for attracting money (and a very nice gesture as well!). It’s like you’re telling yourself “I can afford to be generous!” frequently! I like that you are practicing this will *smaller* amounts….this way you are able to stay comfortable with the process but still see results because of the constant repetition. Nice strategy!

    Hi Wendy! Thanks!! Not sure why, but lately this plugin has been turning emoticons into question marks…it’s something specific to WordPress. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they update it soon and smiley faces work again! LOL

    Thank you so much Andrea! Love your tips. They are so simple and yet soooo big! And make such a difference for a better, happier and more successfull life .
    Regarding positive tips, something that has also been helping me is comunicate telepatically to a person I have some kind of distress with, and solve the issue by sending live and light and have a beautiful conversation (in my mind) and soul-to-soul on how we can improve our relationship. Its silent, it doesn’t require the physical presence of the other person, and it also creates more love inside me towards that person and situation. This helps for the next interaction and always creates a change for better. This can be applied to world situations and events, pliticians, etc. i beleive each of us holds the power to recreate the outside events. Lots of love and blessings to you and everyone
