The Karam Kriya method of Kundalini yoga is attentive to the numbers in the date of birth. It carries information about what we will have to face in life and what spiritual gifts we have. In this article, I will share with you some basic knowledge about spiritual gifts that are hidden in your birth date. I hope this information will help you to understand yourself and your life a little better.
What is Karam Kriya?
Karam Kriya is the study of life through numbers and the study of numbers through life.
Karam means “Karma, action, and reaction”. Kriya means “Extinction, exhaustion, end”. Therefore, we can say that Karam Kriya means “the end of karma”, “the end of all the patterns that control our life”.
Karam Kriya provides us knowledge about our personal, professional and spiritual development.
Your Personal “Gift Number”
According to Karam Kriya, there is a Gift Number coded in your birth date that has a great impact on your life. The Gift Number describes your God-given talent. You don’t have to work for it; it’s already here and yours. You simply need to accept it. When I am talking about “spiritual gifts” I mean your own Gift number that reveals your hidden spiritual potential.
We should understand that spiritual gifts that we have can be used for good or for bad. Just as the Earth contains an abundance of resources, so we contain reserves that we will either cultivate during life or unconsciously direct them to self-destruction. Therefore, we should always be conscious of how we are applying our spiritual gifts.
Spiritual gifts coded in our birth date are useful tools that provide a foundation for strength to lean on. This is a basic survival strategy.
Being sufficiently developed, spiritual gifts become a means of “spiritual blossoming”.
A mother’s figure in our life symbolically represents the way we treat our spiritual gifts. Take a look at how you treat your mother and she treats you. Watch your relationship with her. Do you emulate her, reject her, or learn from her (including from her mistakes)? The thing is – the more understanding, forgiving, loving, and respectful you are with your mother, the closer your connection with your true spiritual gifts. You see, your mother is a woman that affected your birth date directly. She felt you and knew you before you were born. And it doesn’t matter how aware she was of what was going on during your birth, the fact is she is tightly connected with your spiritual gifts and your karma.
Just think about this – your mother’s womb was your first home on Earth! Therefore all the questions regarding the home and other places of rest will be presented by the Gift Number.
It’s important to strengthen and use your gifts as much as possible. The use it or lose it rule can apply here as the negative side of this number can overpower the positive when one is denying the gifts they are given and not using them.
How To Calculate Your Gift Number?
To find out what is your Gift Number, do this simple calculation: Sum of the decade (last two digits of the year) (y+y). For example, the gift number for a birth year of 1975 is 7 + 5 = 12; 1 + 2 = 3.
