IS IT BAD KARMA TO STEAL FROM SOMEONE WHO STOLE FROM YOU?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

If someone steals something from you, is it bad karma to steal something of equal value from them?

–Wondering (Brazil)

DEAR WONDERING:

I would recommend you do not steal anything, even from a person who stole from you. By doing what they do, you are becoming like them by committing the same mistakes they did to you and it keeps you stuck even more in the energy of theft.

Perhaps one thing you could do is ask that person to either returning your belonging (if you’re sure they took it) or to give you a specific item of equal value as recompense. Ask from a space of your power. If they give it back to you, you’ll have kept your honor and integrity and found a more positive way of balancing the scales. If they don’t give you anything or return the item, you’ll still have your honor and integrity, which is worth way more than whatever they took from you.
