Karma. Your Karma profoundly effects your life, past, present and future.
Knowing your Karma Number for 2011 will tell you what the future holds for you.
Love? Career? Success? Health? Family… Friends…
Numerolgically, 2011 is going to be one of the most dramatic periods of change of our generation.
Your Karma number has much to tell you what awaits you and how you can control those changes to your own ends…
As Master Numerologist Blair Gorman explains it: “The Karma number is not really of Western numerology but more a Vedic or Indian invention. You may not relate to the idea of having a karma number if you do not believe in reincarnation however it is an interesting exercise in numerology if you do subscribe to the concept.
“The Karma number is supposed to tell you about the baggage you are carrying over from your last lifetime that is giving you lessons to learning in this lifetime.
In this sense numerology can tell you what types of karma you are carrying over from a previous life. All you need to do is calculate your Karma number.”
Your Karmic number is not calculated in any way that you may have been familiar with so far. It is figured out using fadic addition.
Technically the number is based on a Magic Square that incorporates your birth date numbers and the values.
The shortcut to calculating your Karma number is found by taking the month of your birth day, subtracting 1 and then reducing the number to 1
For instance if your birth day is June 7, 1960 you would take the day of the month of your birth day and subtract 2. You would then reduce the result by fadic addition.
The calculation would be 7-1 = 6.
If the person was born on June 17th you would reduce it like this: 17-1 =16 and 1+7 = 8.
The Karma number values and their meanings are listed below.
Karma Number (0)
If you reduce to a zero then it is possible you are a new soul or
one that has cleared up a lot of karmic debt in your past life.
This current life is one where you get to start again with a clean
Karma Number (1)
The lesson of this karma number is learning to be independent. You
may start off this life by being very dependent on others, with the
life lesson being that you need to stand on your own two feet. This
might manifest as spending most of your life single or being very
successful but alone.
Karma Number (2)
The karma of this life has to do with learning how to get along
with others. You may have taken advantage of others in your past
life and now it is payback time. You may find yourself saddled with
the responsibility of taking care of someone who is dependent on
you. You may also have to learn to be less skeptical and how to
trust your intuition…
Karma Number (3)
You may have been frivolous, wasteful and guilty of not taking
things seriously enough. You may have also taken credit for someone
else’s accomplishment or cheated to get to the top somehow. Your
lesson in this life is to be balanced, serious and responsible.
Karma Number (4)
You may have been lazy in your past life so in this life you will
be asked to fulfill your potential. You may have to work harder
than most people just to make a living. Your karma requires you to
be persistent; great riches are possible if you keep doing the
right thing without complaint.
Karma Number (5)
You may have been an addict, wasteful or sexually over active in
your last lifetime. Your lesson in this lifetime will be symbolized
by situations that necessitate that you work hard and make
sacrifices so you can get ahead later. You may also be dealing with
health crisises that force you to stay on the straight and narrow.
Karma Number (6)
You are dealing with the karma of betraying or abandoning your
family in a past lifetime. In this lifetime you may find yourself
in the position of having to care for your family or take care of
someone who is ill. You may also find it hard to strike out on your
own and leave the family nest.
Karma Number (7)
You are dealing with the karma of failing to pay attention to the
spiritual side of your life. You may have been too focused on money
in your past life so in this life it may be more challenging for
you to make money. You may be dealing with an illness or chronic
problem that also tests your faith.
Karma Number (8)
You may have been in a position of power and abused it somehow in
your past life. It is also possible you may have exploited others
for financial gain. In this life you are doomed to be a follower.
You will probably have to get by in this lifetime with less money
than most and you will likely have to work hard to get ahead in
Karma Number (9)
You are dealing with the karma of avoiding assisting or loving
other people in a past life. Your lesson in this lifetime is to
learn to be kind, compassionate and help others. You will probably
start this life with great personal needs of your own, and will
only progress in life once you learn how to be a teacher or a
philanthropist in your own life.
As you can see this is not the usual way that numbers are
calculated but it is interesting as the interpretations are
practically the opposite of what we would normally associate with
these particular number values.

Question by ssrvj: Does some concepts of “Exixtentialism” resemble the “Doctrine of Karma”?
Mr.Soren Kierkegaard and Mr.Freidrich Neietsche are credited with the postulation of “Existentialism”- in 19 and 20 th Century
-two concepts say:-”the person is For example, someone who acts cruelly towards other people is, by that act, defined as a cruel person. Furthermore, by this action of cruelty such persons are themselves responsible for their new identity (a cruel person). This is as opposed to their genes, or ‘human nature’, bearing the blame.
As Sartre puts it in his Existentialism is a Humanism: “man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world – and defines himself afterwards.” Of course, the more positive, therapeutic aspect of this is also implied: A person can choose to act in a different way, and to be a good person instead of a cruel person. Here it is also clear that since man can choose to be either cruel or good, he is, in fact, neither of these things essentially. 
(1) defined only in so far as he or she acts (Karma)and (2) that he or she is responsible for his or her actions(Angulimaala story). This is what is very precisely said in “Karma Kaandam”(Doctrine of Karma)
what are your “inputs”
Reference :-”Existentialism in Wikipedia
The explanatory note should read like this (taken from Wikipedia):-”(1) defined only in so far as he or she acts and (2) that he or she is responsible for his or her actions”
the words in parentheses( ) are mine(ssrvj)
(quote) “This is as opposed to their genes, or ‘human nature’, bearing the blame”(en-quote)
this is also explained in the Upanishads
“Na Jaathi Karanam”=Genes are not responsible
“Guna Karma Vipaakaha”=the attributes of action (“Cruel”–”Samaritan” etc) is reponsible.
The same concept is further strengthened by Atharva Vedha;-”Na Aham Kartha–Kaamah Kartha–Na ham ka Rahitha–Kaamah Ka Rahitha”
so when i read “Modern” “existentialism,i get a doubt,whether I read “Existentialism ” or Hindu Scriptures.!!!!.
Allegory:-(quote) “Karma (Law) is not merciful”—Yes–it is NOT merciful–but Karma is “inevitable”–Meemaamsikas hold that Karma “binds” even God also–their argument is “a Law maker” can NOT break”Law”–lest it would result in nephotism,favouritism and “Chaos” will result.It is why when Lord -God-sri.Krishna asks sri.Sahadeva “Can you bind Me?”–sri.Sahadeva says “yes.I can bind You with the Law of Karma.”
Swamy Ji–my boss arenouned Physician used to say people always remember only about 10 Air-crashes in 10 years that 1,000,000 successful flights–the moment one say Karma people think only the Negative aspects–if there are 1,000,000 Sat Karmis there are only 10 Dush Karmis.Micro Soft Mr.Bill gates has said all his earnings will go only “Charities” and NOT for his children–if one says Charities in English,in Sanskrit one has to “Sat Karma” only–Bil does NOT do it with expectations-but he does a “Nish Kaama Karma” only—Fatalism is inertia,indifference,lethargy,”Darkness:(Tamas)–Karma is Rajas,Tamas(Dush Karma) and more often than not Saatvic(Sat Karma)–so Fatalism and Karma are Not “same”
Answer by Steve H
I think the doctrine of karma extends further and says that your actions not only affect the way you are perceived or exist (i.e. you define yourself as cruel by being cruel) but also that there exists some kind of retribution for it, be it in the next life or simply that people shun you for being cruel.
Existentialism doesn’t really say anything about the repercussions of the way you define yourself.

Article by Scott Petullo & Stephen Petullo
Too often, there are reports of people claiming to have been
glorified historical figures in past lives.
It’s a frequent misconception, perhaps encouraged in part by
somewhat unscrupulous psychics who tell clients how important
they were in their past lives. When people are regressed and
see their own past lives, it’s common to perceive experiences as
being both rich and poor, male and female, powerful and powerless,
productive and unproductive, and so on. If people perceive
themselves as a famous historic figure such as Cleopatra,
Joan of Arc, one of the Disciples of Jesus, or even as Jesus
himself, there are four possible explanations for this:
1. The person really was the historic figure in a past life.
2. The person is identifying with personality patterns
associated with the historic individual to such an extent that
the person believes he or she was that individual.
3. The person’s ego is adding to the session. For example,
perhaps he or she perceives through regression the ancient
civilization of Egypt and a woman who looked like Cleopatra,
or they may have been associated with Cleopatra, but the
regressed person wasn’t actually Cleopatra.
4. The person is somehow connecting to the energy or
consciousness that was once part of the historic figure.
Regarding those who consider people who believe in reincarnation
and past lives to be escapists and cowards, it actually takes
more courage to accept and live within the ideals of reincarnation
and karma because it means you have to take responsibility for
everything you do, say, intend, and feel for all that happens to
you. There is no such thing as a victim, you can’t blame anyone for
anything, and you “get away with” nothing.
Furthermore, physical death may be the end of our body, but
we are far more than just a body. Our soul consists of energy
or life force. Science has proven that energy never dies and
can’t be destroyed; it just takes a different form.
Past life regression can be used for entertainment purposes,
but more importantly, even if you don’t believe in past lives,
it can be a very useful and therapeutic tool.
Finally, it doesn’t really matter if the theories of reincarnation
and karma are valid or not, but if we all acted as if they were,
our world would be a much better place.
www.siddhayatan.org http www.siddhalishree.com (blog) Karma and Karmic Theory is full of complexities. Dr. Acharya Yogeesh simplifies some concepts of karma since most are confused on the topic. Karma, Rebirth and Reincarnation are discussed. There are only two eternal things matter and soul. Transcription What can you tell us about Karma? Good deeds bring good karma; bad deeds bring bad karma. Bad karma brings suffering and good karma brings happiness and prosperity. It makes life easy. To collect good karma your intention has to be pure. For example, if a beggar on the street comes across an accident and he makes every effort to help by putting his whole being there, he collects good karma. He did not have money and he couldn’t provide facilities to the injured but his intention was very pure. It means his soul is improving and he could come back as a higher person in his next life. Karmic theory works that way. There is no God that is telling you what to do. There is no “Almighty God” because an Almighty God will not allow suffering, like a father will not let his child suffer. A father will sacrifice anything to save his child from pain. This is an ordinary father not an almighty father. How can an almighty father let his children suffer? This idea of God that churches, synagogues, and temples perpetuate is for the support of the institution. If this idea is dropped there will be no institution of religion. So truth is withheld and those who do tell the truth are …

Money is money. There is nothing good or bad about money. It is the energy, the relationship we have with money that determines whether it creates good or back outcomes – makes us feel happy or sad.
Our experience around money is derived from the energy – the negative or positive meaning – we give it.
Money, in and of itself, is worthless. It has no value. It’s only when it is used to generate something else does it hold any worth.
Money can buy stuff, status, power and sometimes even people.
Money can nourish countries seeped in poverty.
Money can starve a hungry soul.
Generating money to achieve our wildest dreams, to serve others, to spread enjoyment and enriched experiences is one thing. Hoarding money in a desperate attempt to feel worthy or to control others is quite another.
We know money does not buy happiness.
Inner wealth creates happiness.
Money is, indeed, a primary means of commerce, growth and expansion. Money is something we use as a means of exchange to build, create, distribute, buy and sell the things we want to consume in order to enjoy a specific experience.
Money is a means to a desired end, not the end itself. Today, money is merely digits in a computer somewhere. Money by itself, provides nothing. It’s what we exchange money for that provides what we ultimately want.
For most people.
For some people, money – and the amount they have – is the means through which they identify their self-worth. They have a disordered, sense of low self-esteem and belief that money is scarce. There isn’t enough so grab all you can in order to have value. Money is the only means used to measure self-worth.
There isn’t enough money in the world to fill the empty chasm of such self-inflicted discontent.
Mis-identification with money is one of the sources of the quiet – or not so quiet – desperation that Henry David Thorough wrote about so elegantly.
Money can be used to create wonderful experiences that serve the greater good of all. We live in an abundant world. We are here to imagine, create and enjoy a rich delicious life as we include others in that experience.
You don’t have to look very far to see examples of good and destructive energy around money. Many wealthy people use their wealth to enrich the lives of others.
Look at the philanthropy and dedication to service of people like George Clooney, Oprah, Richard Branson, Bill and Melinda Gates, Bono and the people you meet in your daily life – financially rich and poor – who exchange large or meager amounts of money to enrich others as well and themselves.
Their wealth generates more inner and outer wealth for themselves and the people they serve.
There are examples of people, companies, societies and governments who use money to control or force their way of thinking upon others and for other destructive means, intentionally or unintentionally. Money is not the root of all evil. It is the money energy of the person using or receiving money that evokes the destruction, the evil outcomes.
More often, though, the person with a negative energy around money – a money disorder – is the one ultimately hurt the most.
Bad Karma Lady
I know a woman. I’ll call her Andrea. She lives in a million dollar home with no mortgage, has a Rolls Royce, jewelry, clothes, and passive income. She is 70 years old, in good physical health and is “set for life”.
You’d think she’d be more than a happy camper enjoying life and all it has to offer.
She is anything but happy.
Andrea is the poorest person I know. Many poor, woefully impoverished people, have more inner wealth, dignity, compassion and strength of character than Andrea.
Andrea is alone – trapped in her gilded cage.
Her fear of ‘not having money’ has driven her to become penniless in terms of her emotional self-worth.
She married – several times – for money, not love. The marriages ended in divorce.
She’s alienated her friends.
She rules her family relationships with an iron fist of control and power.
Andrea treats all ‘lesser people’ with disdain.
She complains most people are either out to get her or jealous of her.
Her expensive mansion is falling apart.
Her Rolls Royce is in need of repair.
Her house and overstuffed closets are filled with cheap crap.
She doesn’t travel or enjoy much of anything.
She cringes at the thought of spending any money.
To spend a dime would be giving up a part of her soul.
Andrea’s sense of self is wholly embedded in the amount of money she has.
In that sense, Andrea lives a squandered life of poverty.
She uses her bank account to mask her deep insecurity, anxiety and low self-esteem.
She is unable to value anything other than money. Personal values such as love, integrity, honesty, trust, accomplishment, compassion, loyalty aren’t placed in the same zip code as her attachment to money.
For Andrea, money is the only measure of esteem and desirability. It is the only thing with which she has a relationship.
Andrea suffers from a money disorder, an addiction to money at the cellular level. Her personal motivation and identity is so dependent upon how much money she has she would be completely lost without it. She’s afraid that without money she’ll be nothing or will die.
All of her thoughts, beliefs, feelings, choices, actions and outcomes are birthed in this state of fear. From that place she destroys anything of real value – relationships, fun times, love, opportunity – that comes knocking at her door.
She is privately known as the “bad karma lady”, a woman who victimizes and views her life from a victim’s perspective. She demolishes any fulfilling experience and blames others for her empty, joyless life.
To the extent that Andrea, or any one of us, identifies with something outside of herself is to the extent of our misery.
Desperation, emptiness, feelings of disconnection, loss of vitality or sense of meaning and purpose are all symptoms of external identification.
Inner wealth and esteem is an inside job. A life story well lived and well told is an inside job.
There is a natural healthy flow to the energy of money as it is earned, saved, invested, spent and exchanged for experiences that make hearts sing. Cutting off that flow through wretched hoarding in a frantic attempt to feel validated sucks the life energy out of the hoarder.
It stops any opportunity for the positive energy flow of money that can touch, influence, impact and create the kind of wealth that enriches lives and mankind itself.
Know this: We are not a bank account. Our sense of worth is developed from the inside out. Nothing outside of us can fill our internal vault of life enriching resources.
I encourage you to continue to be mindful of your money mindset. Pay attention to how you feel when you think of money or people with (or without) money. Reach for a new and better perspective if your money energy is low or negative.
Develop and express a sense of inner wealth that matches – or exceeds – your outer affluent potential.
Its what you’re here to do and enjoy.

She teaches people how to get out of their own way in order to transform inner emotional disconnection into a meaningful inner wealth that matches an affluent lifestyle.
