Downward spiralling Karma is repetitive (cyclic) Karma that results in the gradual but ever increasing attraction to lower frequency existence with additionally increasing severity. In this instance the accrued Karma attracts more Karma (lower frequencies) the more one ignores the repeated learning opportunity, and actively chooses to avoid the corrective action necessary to arrest its development.
When one is caught in the clutches of downward spiralling Karma it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to reverse the trend on one’s own. Unless of course this is part of the life plan. In this instance the incarnate needs to be in acceptance of the observations and comments of those around them who can see the downward spiral occurring and accept help when it is offered. This takes humility, which is a difficult personal thought process to adopt when “in the middle” of the spiral. It also needs true “resilient” friends to be the helpers of the incarnate stuck in this type of Karma, for they will encounter many episodes of resistance where they are not thanked for their help.
