Many people ask me “How do I know if I have any karmic debts?”
My response is very simple. I typically ask them if they see any repeating patterns in their life. Are you constantly having issues in any area of your life? Maybe you are always struggling with money. Maybe you continue to sabotage your relationships. Maybe you are battling addictions. Is it possible that you avoid any level of responsibility in your life?
Karmic debts can be complicated but at the same time they can be painfully simple too.
So before you chose to incarnate into this lifetime you would have given a lot of consideration to what you wanted to learn in this lifetime. You may have said “I wasn’t very patient in my previous lifetime so I’m going to include the number 2 energy in my date of birth so I can attract opportunities to learn about patience this time around. I am also going to include the energy of the number 3 in my date of birth because I need to work on expressing myself more easily.” So you chose the numbers in your date of birth and you also chose the letters in your birth name.
Your birth name identifies “karmic lessons.” Karmic lessons are simply areas of weakness that you feel need to be improved upon this time around. They are identified by missing letters in your name.
Your birth date identifies if there are any Karmic debts present. Karmic debts hold a much heavier energy. Karmic debts show up when we need to make amends for bad behavior in previous lifetimes. The karmic debt number gives us major clues as to what that bad behavior was and it helps us to understand what sorts of behaviors we are making amends for in this lifetime. It’s payment for abuse of the energy of the karmic number attached to it. Let me explain further.
There are 4 karmic debts that can be seen in a date of birth. These include the numbers 13, 14, 16 and 19.
So if you were born on the 13th, 14th, 16th or 19th you are here to make amends for having abused the energy associated with these numbers in a previous lifetime.
If your life path number is that of a 13/4, 14/5, 16/7 or a 19/1 then you also have a karmic debt to work out in this lifetime. Note: Karmic Debts can also been seen in your Hearts Desire and Expression Numbers.

If you have a 13/4 as one of your Core Numbers (Life Path, Expression, Heart’s Desire, Birth Day or Personality #’s)
You are here to pay back a debt for lazy behavior in a previous lifetime. You shirked responsibility and avoided carrying your share of the work load. You likely took many short cuts to avoid taking the time necessary to get the job done efficiently. You can make amends for this debt by practicing communicating and expressing yourself in more positive ways. Think things through before you speak. Consider the impact of your words and use them constructively to support and empower people rather than to break them down. Develop a step by step process to achieve success in your life. Stop pointing the finger outside of yourself. Take responsibility for your actions. Own your stuff! Some of the issues that you may be challenged with if you have this karmic debt are:
- Blaming everyone else for any limitations you feel in your life

If you have a 14/5 as one of your Core Numbers (Life Path, Expression, Heart’s Desire, Birth Day or Personality #’s)
You have this karmic debt because you abused your sense of freedom in a past life. You acted selfishly at the expense of others. You were likely very irresponsible related to anything connected to your senses. This could include, drugs, alcohol, food etc. You let people down by your irresponsible behavior and selfish need to satisfy your own desires. The number 5 supports the lessons connected to the constructive use of freedom. This karmic debt asks you to examine your use of freedom balanced with a need for self discipline in all areas of your life. You can make amends for this debt by practicing moderation in all things. You need to realize that adding structure and routine to your life will actually help you in the long run. Developing a solid foundation for yourself will give you the freedom you really crave. Set goals for yourself. Create “to do” lists and follow through with them. Remain flexible and adaptable especially when things don’t play out the way you hoped they would. Stay on track and committed to your goals and success. Be open to change. Welcome the unexpected with a sense of curiosity as to what the change might bring! Keep focused on the task at hand.

If you have a 16/7 as one of your Core Numbers (Life Path, Expression, Heart’s Desire, Birth Day or Personality #’s)
You have this karmic debt because you abused loving relationships in a previous lifetime. This karmic debt will cause you to possibly feel the need to “prove” that you can be trusted this time around. You will be challenged with not only the reality that others may not trust you but that you may not trust yourself. This number often causes you to “implode” your life more than once. This can include “blowing up your job or relationship” and surprising everyone for your actions. It brings a theme of “rise and fall of the ego.” It is related to the destruction and re-birth of your life many times until you really connect to the spiritual being that you are. You have likely been involved with love affairs which resulted in a great deal of suffering to others in previous lifetimes. You can make amends for this debt by balancing your need for privacy with social interaction. When you feel reclusive, go outside and connect with nature. Consider other people’s opinions more closely. Become a better listener. Become more consciously aware of how people perceive you. Adjust your behavior to invite people into your space. Learn how to express yourself more intimately so to nurture long standing relationships.

If you have a 19/1 as one of your Core Numbers (Life Path, Expression, Heart’s Desire, Birth Day or Personality #’s)

Help people to help themselves. Share your vision with others and invite them to share in the rewards. Ask for help when you need it. Resist the need to look like you have it all figured out.

Karmic Debts need to be embraced rather than resisted. It’s easy to feel like a victim when the Karmic Debt comes to call. But remember that YOU chose to bring this debt forward. YOU chose to pay back the debt in this life time. If you resist then it will persist! Karmic debts can be super challenging but if you can focus on bringing forth the positive energy associated with your karmic debt then you will pay it back with interest!
