Master Numbers

-The Master Numbers 11, 22 and 33 are intensified versions of the single digit numbers they replace (2, 4 and 6). Since Master Numbers have the same number in both positions their power is enhanced and therefore their meaning is deepened. A large Master Number does not mean a person is better or wiser. It only illustrates the type of wisdom that can be utilised.

-The Master Numbers are gifts which carry with them a duty to fulfil an obligation or goal. They suggest a potential for a high degree of learning and/or achievement, very often in a more stressful environment. Often the qualities of Master Numbers come through as intuition, as feelings of knowingness or as guidance from beyond. Some people may feel lucky and gifted.

-It is widely believed by numerologists that individuals with the Master Numbers 11, 22, or 33 in their name or date of birth are endowed with special qualities that demand a greater effort. That they are old souls that have come into this lifetime to master some level of experience (be it spiritual, scientific, medical, religious, educational, technological).

-People with Master Numbers in their Five Core Numbers (Life Path, Destiny, Soul, Personality or Maturity numbers), or in their Birthday Number have the potential to achieve great accomplishments. However, master accomplishment requires master effort. The potential is there.

-If you have master number vibrations in your chart, but the focus of your life revolves around earthly and egotistic energies, you are most probably working on the single vibration, for example on a 2 instead of an 11, on a 4 instead of a 22, on a 6 instead of a 33. If your thoughts revolve on philosophical and/or metaphysical concepts you are operating at the master number level.

The Number Eleven is considered the most psychic of all numbers. It is the number representing the Spiritual Messenger/The Illuminator. Eleven represents illumination; a channel to the subconscious; insight without rational thought; as well as sensitivity.

The Number Twenty-Two is the most powerful of all numbers. It is referred to as the number of the Master Builder. The Number Twenty-Two can turn the most ambitious of dreams into full-fledged reality. This number is potentially the most successful of all numbers as it contains the seed of the inspirational insights of the Number Eleven, yet is combined with the practicality and methodical nature of the Number Four. As such, this number contains unlimited potential, yet possesses a vibration which lends discipline to the individual or being under its influence.

The Number Thirty-Three is the most influential of all numbers. It is the Master Number of Universal Love. The Thirty-Three combines the vibration of both the Numbers Eleven and Twenty-Two, bringing their unlimited potential to the highest level, when realized to its fullest potential.

Karmic Debt Numbers

Karma is the belief that 'you reap what you sow'. It is thought of as the universal law of cause and effect, which is played out over many cycles of rebirth. The Karmic Debt Numbers (13, 14, 16, 19) represent past life abuses/lessons which must be addressed/learned in this lifetime. These abuses/lessons are destined to be repeated over and over until you have leant them.

The Karmic Debt Number Thirteen (13/4) comes about by frittering away your talents and opportunities in a previous life and not getting the important things accomplished, or by placing un-necessary burdens on others, such as pain and suffering. Also, shifting your responsibilities of work or activity onto someone else's shoulders and sidestepping work (in other words being lazy).

The Karmic Debt Number Fourteen (14/5) comes about from past life destructive and erratic behaviour, often from over-indulgence in the physical sense (especially alcohol, sex and gambling), that proved destructive to your own ends and accomplishments thereby undermining your own soul development. Also, by taking your freedoms at the expense of someone else.

The Karmic Debt Number Sixteen (16/7) comes from wasting a past life with unusual or illicit love affairs that caused others to suffer a lot of pain. Also, by acting irresponsibly in the face of danger involved in these situations, and going to excesses with alcohol and drugs.

The Karmic Debt Number Nineteen (19/7) comes about from the abuse of power in a past life for self-fulfillment, or in some way you acted mostly for yourself without any consideration for others, and/or possibly harming someone in the physical sense. You were most likely arrogant and egotistic, and you used others to give yourself more value.
