How To Figure Out Your Karmic Lesson Number

Look at all the numbers in your birth name. Determine which numbers, 1-9, are missing. If you are missing more than one, you have more than one karmic lesson. 

Remember, karmic lessons are areas in which we are currently weak, and, thus, must face and work on in this life. Check the chart below to see the applicable areas. 

Let us go back to our example of John Alan Doe.

1. According to the chart below, if you look at the numbers assigned to each of the letters of his name, you will notice that the following numbers are missing:  2, 7, and 9. 

2. This means John Alan Doe has 3 karmic lessons (2, 7, and 9). 

Here are the Karmic Lessons.

Karmic Lesson One
You need to show more initiative in your life or be more determined. Standing up for yourself will allow you to become more forceful and dynamic.

Karmic Lesson Two
You must learn to be more diplomatic, tactful, sensitive to others feelings, and learn to be part of a team. 

Karmic Lesson Three
You must learn to be kind to yourself, lighten up, have fun, and enjoy life. Learn to be less self-critical. 

Karmic Lesson Four
Confused about your life's direction, you need to create a foundation for your life to give you the stability upon which to build. Work on organizational skills, looking for answer within instead of without, and persevere (don’t give up too early). 

Karmic Lesson Five
With an innate fear of living, you need to learn to be more adventurous. Take opportunity when presented to travel and broaden your horizons. Let go of rigidity in your life and personality and go more with the flow. 

Karmic Lesson Six
With commitment issues, you need to work on showing your true emotions and living up to your responsibilities to others. This will help you in building close friendships and lasting relationships, which you may be having trouble establishing. You have a major issue with commitment and responsibility to others.

Karmic Lesson Seven
Seek knowledge and work on your own talents with determination in order to develop your abilities fully. 

Karmic Lesson Eight
Keep stubbornness and a know-it-all attitude in check to keep your business affairs on an even keel. Learn your limitations, especially concerning your handling of finances. 

Karmic Lesson Nine
Take a larger worldview; learn to be more compassionate, tolerant, and understanding. Try to put yourself in another’s shoes. Let go of some of your egocentric ambition. 

Please note: This is only one interpretation of the Karmic Lessons. Many variations on these themes are available.

How To Figure Out Your Personality Number and Personal Year Number


Using the letter/number equivalency chart below, add up the value of just the consonants in your name, as it appears on your birth certificate. 

Next, look at the Nine Life Path descriptions listed on the August 12, 2016 blog. For this exercise, the applicable number describes how you appear to others. It may even describe the social mask you use to protect yourself, for it is the first impression you present. 

Let us use John Alan Doe as our example again.

1. The consonants in his name are J, H, N (for John); L and N (for Alan); and D (for Doe).

2.  J=1; H=8; N=5; L=3; N=5; D=4

3.  Add up the numbers (1+8+5+3+5+4 = 26). Reduce to a single digit (2+6=8). 


Each year in the cycle from one to nine has its own spiritual significance. All the numbers are positive and encouraging, but each one speaks to a different focus or energy pattern.

Here is an example of how to figure out your personal year number. Let us assume we are in 2010, and your birthday is December 15th.

1. Add up the digits of the year (2+0+1+0= 3)

2. Reduce the number that applies to your birth month to a single digit (12 in the above example become 1+2=3) and add it to the reduced number of your birth date (15 in the above example become 1+5=6).

3. 1+2 + 1+5 = 9   
You may also figure it out this way: 12 +15 = 27 and then you reduce 27 to a single digit to get the same result (2+7=9).

4. Add the number 9 to the reduced number for 2010 (which is 3). 

5. 9 + 3 = 12    
Reduce 12 to a single digit (1 + 2 = 3)  Three is your personal year number.

6. Refer to the following chart to see what this can mean.


Here are the key phrases for each year number.

1. New Beginnings
2   Intuitive Connections and Creating Balance in Your Life 
3.   Fun/Joy/Optimism
4. Building Through a Deep Commitment and Long Term Planning
5. Change/Adventure
6. Teaching/Learning, Especially About Family Relationships
7. Introspection, Inner Work, Quiet Reflection
8. Inner Resolution and Problem Solving 
        You can regard this as a year of power & light or "A make it or break it year."
9. Wholeness/Completion, Unconditional Love, Help Others

If the year happens to add up to any of the following two-digit numbers, then the following descriptions may also be applicable (in addition to the ones above). For example, if your personal year number adds up to 13, read 4 above and 13 below).

11. Inspiration and Intuitive Connections; New Channels of Awareness
13. Rebirth and Giving Back
14. Freedom From Addiction, Fear, Guilt
16. Catalyzing Action To Help Healing Process in Life
19. Personal Scrutiny So You Can Move To A Higher Purpose
22. Great Insight and Spiritual Growth Fostering, Power and Practicality
33. Love and Helping Others
