What’s your karmic debt number?

May believe that karmic debt is an accumulation of all the “bad” things you have done in previous lives and that you have been sent to earth during this lifetime to erase or restore your karmic balance.

However, karmic debt doesn’t really work that way. Karma is simply “cause and effect” and dictates the energy you move forward every time you have a thought or action.

Your karmic debt is more about your life lessons and what your soul needs to do to achieve a higher level of consciousness.

Although your karmic debt is inherited from past lives and exists at the soul level, it’s not really all about all the “bad” things you’ve done. It’s more about what you’ve done and where those actions took you.

In the spirit world, good or evil does not exist, it all depends on how you choose to live your life and perceive certain events.

In numerology, everyone receives a karmic debt number that can reveal the lessons or karma that your soul has come to realize. This number is determined by the name given to you at birth.

To find out your karmic debt number, simply add the letters of your full birth name using the chart below.

Karmic debt number

So, for example, say if your full birth name is PAUL LEE SMITH, you would add:

7 – 1 – 3 – 3 – 3 – 5 – 5 – 1 – 4 – 9 – 2 – 8 – 78

You then reduce that number to a single digit, so

7 – 8 – 15

1 – 5 – 6

Note: The only time you won’t reduce the numbers to a single digit is if you get an 11 or a 22 because these are known as the main numbers.

In the example above, Paul would have a karmic debt number of 6.

Meaning your karmic debt number:

Number 1

In previous lives, the call of your soul has never been nourished. You always put others ahead of yourself and spend most of your time worrying or worrying about others. You may have neglected to really love yourself and you had low self-esteem or low self-esteem. In this life, you have come back to really learn that you are important and that being happy, nourished and loved in yourself is the true way to give and serve others. Maybe life will present you with many challenges that will force you to defend yourself and discover who you really are.

Number 2

In previous lives, you have enjoyed the material elements and the world of physics more than your own intuition or emotions. You have fallen into the trap of following your ego and neglected your spiritual or creative appeal of your soul. In this life, you have returned to enjoy the other side of life: joy, creativity and pleasure. You have returned to free the burdens of the material world and instead seek satisfaction and purpose in what you do. Perhaps life will present you with many situations where you are forced to look beyond the outside and inward. Perhaps you will feel guided to really follow your passions and trust this little inner voice.

Number 3

In previous lifetimes, you have never felt comfortable or safe to express yourself or defend what you really believe. You may have felt oppressed or you have not been able to live your truth authentically. You may also have been prevented from communicating a message or truth. In this life, you have come back to learn to raise your voice and trust by expressing yourself. You have also been sent back to communicate to the world an important message to which your soul has clung.

Number 4

In previous lives, your family and family life was not a place where you felt comfortable or safe. Being able to experience the peace and comfort that has just been in a beautiful home and surrounded by a beautiful family is something you have never experienced or taken for granted. During this life, you have been sent to learn the value of family and home and how important it is to create a safe and peaceful environment to flourish. You have also learned the importance of supporting and loving those around you. Perhaps during this lifetime, you may have many opportunities to repair family relationships and provide a stable and secure environment for your loved ones.

Number 5

In previous lives, you needed physical and emotional attention to the point where you were attached, needy and greedy. It is likely that you used your charm to achieve your goals, even if it was not in the best interest of those around you. You may also have had an affair or manipulated other people to help you. In this lifetime, you have come back to learn to respect and treat others fairly, as well as to create and respect healthy boundaries in relationships. You have also come to learn to express your truth without the need for manipulation or artificial feelings.

Number 6

In your previous lives, you have neglected your health or suffered from a debilitating illness. You may also have had difficulty managing your time between work, rest and leisure. This was probably due to the fact that you could not express your emotions or that you had a misunderstanding of your emotional well-being. During this life, you have been sent to help nourish and heal your emotions and to understand that your emotions play an important role in your physical health. Life can send you many challenges and opportunities to make your health a priority so that you can start taking care of your body and providing the right care. A healthy diet, exercise and mediation are absolutely necessary for this karmic number.

Number 7

In previous lifetimes, you have made many decisions based on your own needs and you have struggled to have compassion and empathy for how these decisions have affected others. Perhaps you have been unable to empathize with others and have felt very strongly that life is a struggle or a competition. In this life, you have experienced the joy and flow of life, and you may even feel called to be at the service of others. Your lessons in this life are really learning to walk in the shoes of others and to show compassion to those around you. It’s also learning to make decisions that are in your greatest good, rather than on a place of competition or about the need to move forward.

Number 8

In previous lives, you have not been able to live your life to the fullest and you have struggled to take responsibility for your actions. Maybe you’re always looking for ways to avoid looking at the truth or reality of your life and instead counting on others to pick up the pieces of your life. You may also have addiction problems or you have failed to move your life in a direction that has truly supported the growth of your soul. In this life, you have returned to learn to take full responsibility for your life and the direction of your soul. You are also here to learn to look at the truth of your life and to get to the heart of the purpose and mission of your soul. Instead of getting lost in addictions and trying to escape reality, in this life you will be guided to face everything head on.

Number 9

In previous lives, you have regarded the world as a hateful place full of disharmony, mistrust and greed. You couldn’t see beyond the shadows of life and you had a hard time staying positive about your life and the state of the planet. Perhaps this was largely due to the fact that you had a deep spiritual awakening that made life in the physical world empty. In this life, you have returned to find all the joys and pleasures on Earth and to find happiness in physical form. You have also returned to distance your consciousness from the negative and begin to make positive changes, either personally or through humanitarian action.

Number 11

In previous lives, you have played by the rules, done what society expected of you and lived a fairly positive and comfortable life. But what you have failed to do is listen to the call of your soul and seize the adventurous opportunities that were often presented to you. You have allowed the fear of the unknown to prevent your soul from moving forward and prevent you from experiencing another aspect of life. In this life, you have come back to take more risks, make bolder decisions and learn to follow your intuition. Fear won’t hold you back this time and you can relax and explore the many opportunities available to you.

Number 22

In previous lives, you have preferred to remain in the shadows and never leave to the world your many talents or abilities. You avoided attention and preferred to minimize your skills and abilities. In this life, you’ve come back to finally take the lead. You came back to show the world your talents and to take on some kind of leadership. You have been sent to enter your full power and potential in order to make your mark on the world. This time, life can offer you many opportunities to step up and share with the world your highest self and your truth. You are destined to make a big impact on the world.
