Do you see any recurring negative patterns/themes in your life? For example, you could struggle with money, fail in business, sabotage relationships, or battle negative emotions. If you answered the question with a nod, then probably you have some Karmic debt.
Sometimes, Karma transcends lifetimes. Karmic debt is nothing but the Karma that you carried in your present life from the past. However, the good news is, you can acknowledge it and take steps to get rid of it.
Knowing your Karmic debt is about introspection and self-awareness. It is about embracing your flaws, identifying solutions, and moving forward. But first, what exactly is it? Read on to know the signs of having Karmic debt and ways to repay it.
What Is Karmic Debt?
Most of us associate Karma as an ominous response to the negative things that we have done in our lives. However, Karma doesn't work that way.
Karma dictates the energy you put into motion whenever you have a thought or act. Your Karmic debt is more about your life lessons and what your soul needs to do to reach a higher level of consciousness.
Although your Karmic debt is inherited from past lives and exists on a soul level, these are not all the bad things you have done. It's more about the actions you took and where those actions took you.
When you fail to live by the lessons of Karma, you accumulate Karmic debt. It follows you until your next life after reincarnation if it has not been paid. This cycle continues until the debt is paid off.
Signs Of Having Karmic Debt
Karmic debt can control your life, but there are some easy ways to deal with it. The first step is to determine if you have a Karmic debt.
Here are the most common signs:
You encounter seemingly inexplicable behaviors and patterns. If it cannot be explained, it is likely rooted in a past life. Whether it is fear of water, distrust of friends, etc., if nothing in this life can explain a feeling or behavior, it could be from a past life.
You have had one or more Karmic relationships. You may be involved in a relationship with someone who seems to be repeatedly teaching you the same lesson. These relationships can be toxic, but they might be trying to convey something related to your Karmic debt.
You often find yourself in situations that require introspection. If you are going through this, it could mean that you are accumulating debt in your current life.
You have observed recurring themes in your life. If some situation pops up continuously or you get a feeling of being trapped might be an indication of unpaid Karmic debt.
You have a Karmic debt number as per your birth date. There are four Karmic numbers: 13, 14, 16, and 19. If your life path number corresponds to one of these four digits, you probably have a Karmic debt.
Karmic Debt By Numbers
As mentioned, there are four Karmic debt numbers, and each has a meaning associated with them. They can significantly affect your life, and hence, it is essential to know your Karmic debt number.
Here's what these numbers ultimately mean:
13/4 - If you have number 13, you have to pay a debt for lazy and selfish behavior in a previous life. Therefore, to pay off this debt, you must learn to take responsibility for your actions. Stay motivated and work hard. However, remember not to overdo anything.
14/5 - The number 14 denotes a need for control. Your previous life might be about controlling others, depriving them of their freedom to exercise your will. Most likely, you will have to learn to express your emotions healthily and let people live their way.
16/7 - Number 16 connects with your ego. You may have been quite infatuated with yourself and hurt others directly or indirectly. Learning humility will go a long way for you in this life and, most likely, in future lives.
19/1 - The number 19 refers to selfishness. In your past life, you chose your immediate needs over those of others. It may have manifested in addictions, lack of genuine relationships, etc. In this lifetime, learn to think good of others and care about them genuinely.
How To Pay Off Karmic Debt
The Karmic boomerang brings back to you the consequences of your actions. There is nothing to fear about, but you ought to repay your debt to achieve peace. To begin with, you need to identify the signs of having Karmic debt.
Next, you need to consider what your debt is, take actions that will pay off your Karmic debt, take responsibility for your wrongdoing, identify your biggest obstacles, break the Karmic cycles in your life and strive to overcome weaknesses.
