A lesson On Karma and Numerology
By Terri Gary

To get to the rainbow, you must stand through the rain.

What is karma? Are we doomed to pay back others who we mistreated in this or a previous lifetime?  Is karma a monkey on our backs?  Is karma an opportunity to reach for a higher level of consciousness?  It depends-- is the glass half full or half empty? 

Karma is a Sanskrit word that means action and has commonly been thought of as punishment for past bad actions and behavior. However, karma is neither judge nor jury. It is simply the universal law of cause and effect that says every thought, word and act carries energy into the world and affects our present reality. Karma also refers to the work we have ahead of us, which includes lessons from both our past and present lives.

Karmic numbers exist in numerology. Numerology is an ancient science based loosely upon the theory by Pythagoras that all things under the sun and in this universe vibrate to a numeric equation. We know for instance that the Earth travels around the sun in 365 days, days are 24 hours long, night is 12 hours, and a minute is 60 seconds. In the body blood recirculates for a person at rest in about 60 seconds or one minute. If we multiply this further by 24 hours, and again by 365 days in the year and again by 80 years in your life span, the numbers continue in a dazzling unending sequence. Not only does our body divide and multiply, but the world is full of house numbers, phone numbers, and numbers of weights, heights, circumference, lengths, miles, form numbers, document numbers and on and on. Trying to find something without a number attached can be challenging.  All humans are assigned many numbers-- a driver’s license number, social security number, bank numbers, credit card numbers, weight, height, airline numbers, statistical numbers, medical numbers and far too many more to list. Is there a mathematical symmetry, a delicate balance of numeric qualities, traits and actions?  It is clear there is much order and precision operating in the universe.

Karmic number 33 for instance can be found in the addition of the numbers represented by letters in a name. This number has the potential to bring the person who carries it many disappointments in love and daunting obstacles to face with regard to integrity, morality and honesty.  This in fact helps explain the age old question “Why Me?”  When you carry this number in your name you are often drawn to lover’s triangles and affairs and may find that you must completely start over from the ground up more than once in life. What do you do? Run and hide? Pay up begrudgingly? Far better to understand the numbers that are associated with your name and work with what is in your soul to reach for a better understanding, relieve anger and victim consciousness.

 Karma is a debt we owe however the karmic web is often wound around our lives, desires and work.  Often karma is calling us to a higher path than the one we choose often teaching us something of great value. For instance the two threes in 33 may stand for some of the energy associated with the number 3 which can be self-interest, fickle and unable to settle down. Or the two 3s added together total a 6, which is the number of family, love and tradition-- the humanitarian number. In reality it is up to you to decide what vibration you choose to express. You are always vibrating from higher and lower expressions of any given number represented by the letters in your birth name.  Your soul longs to express the highest possible energy; therefore karma can be what you make of it and how you roll with it requires acceptance, forgiveness and courage.

Always remember that every positive action you take has a positive effect, whether you see it or not. You just need to trust in the universe.
