DWQA QuestionsCategory: KarmaVictims are often thought of as “damaged goods.” This has been especially true in regard to the crime of rape, to such an extreme that some cultures have even blamed the victims themselves, and had them put to death along with the perpetrator, or even instead of the perpetrator. There is truth to the notion that emotional trauma can be crippling, and transform a once happy and gregarious person into someone almost unrecognizable. Some victims are so conscious of this fact, that they go out of their way to say, “It was no big deal.” What is Creator’s perspective on this dilemma?

We see this situation as representing a state of vulnerability that comes about often through the harm done by others. When people are wounded by being assaulted, for example, this is a tremendous lowering of vibration that ensues, taking the person out of divine alignment, and it might be quite difficult to once again return to a state of comfort, security, and a high level of expectation and experiencing in the moment. This is an example of the saying, “Ignorance is bliss.” The trauma victim will be reminded again and again of the depravity inflicted upon them, perhaps even just stepping outside and leaving home knowing they are putting themselves at greater risk will be enough to start anxiety stirring within. Being around members of the opposite sex might become intolerable until some healing is achieved, and so on. This can certainly become a burden to the friends and loved ones of this person who is perceptibly damaged in some way to make their behavior now seemingly abnormal. This can be constraining and confining when people need to walk around on eggshells to not unduly trigger a former victim by saying the wrong thing or presuming there is greater strength and resilience than might be the case, and then once again they are put on the spot and must show the world they are still in a weakened state and still vulnerable.

Whenever there is a situation when people become desperate and have a terrible emotional life and physical maladies as a consequence, this cries out for high-level healing to be offered as a way to obtain a true restoration of wellbeing. This is certainly deserved and will go a long way to restoring the individual to their prior state of functioning. Achieving full healing is, in fact, the answer karmically for both the victim and their perpetrator alike. A perpetrator cannot be fully restored and forgiven by the Law of Karma until there has been a restoration of the victim as a rebalancing of things, a form of repayment of the karmic debt incurred by that perpetrator to set things in motion to harm their victim. So in this sense, the Law of Karma can be quite a severe taskmaster, so to speak, because one may in fact incur not only a life sentence, having a karmic penalty come around to them again and again, it might follow them into future lives as well until they are finally able to heal their shortcomings and overcome their misalignment, and that will often require seeing to the restitution of their victims as well as their own disparagement and corruption chosen by them to indulge in.

While divine grace can absolve a person from further liabilities as victim or perpetrator, that is bestowed only in special circumstances. In the majority of cases, both perpetrator and victim will continue to struggle with their respective liabilities until they find a way to obtain healing. So there is nothing exalted about being a victim and being damaged visibly to others, because everyone knows through life experience such individuals can be a liability and certainly a burden, but it is truly a cry for help and there needs to be greater awareness by all that help is available through the divine realm and the teachings we are giving about healing, even for the really, really deep wounding from the worst of circumstances people experience.
