The body is the repository of all feelings. So as your Soul came into this form it did carry with it some of the emotional energetic aspects that originated in other embodiments. So what is karma? Do you choose to accept the constraints of karma as defined by man? You need not.
Man-Made Components Too
Karma has many man-made components. Through the beliefs and choices each person elects to adopt through their free will, you can take on various components and accept (or not accept) their constraints. You have a choice. It was not the intention for each to carry with them the imperfections created in another lifetime. Nor were those errors to be made right in another lifetime.
It is only when you choose to do so that these things are then taken on. This is when you decide to carry a formerly held burden forward from (and to) another time. You may do so. In this way, you are exercising your free will by making a choice to do so. Each may elect accordingly. Your Spirit or Soul Essence does have the free will option to accept this through beliefs held. This is a man-made paradigm that you need not accept or embrace.
