We are traveling through strong karmic energy which effects us all. Our reaction to it may not immediately change the dynamics of what is happening on Earth, but it can change our ability to cope with it which, in turn, will effect those dynamics significantly.
The karmic numbers are 13/4, 14/5, 16/7 and 19/1. (I have written about the 19/1 karmic energy separately. See link at end of page).
Karmic numbers can act as major stumbling blocks, or evolutionary stepping stones. Their vibrations cannot be avoided without constant repetition of the same old problems. Nothing can progress until we recognize these patterns in our lives and how they are the cause of history forever repeating itself, our personal history included.
Karma is not punishment for past or present misdeeds. Karma is the effect of not knowing HOW life works. It is the result of things we have been unable to learn, both now and all the way back to previous generations and lifetimes. These ruts and routines are reaching such climactic proportions, in so many areas of life right now, that it feels as if we are on the brink of disaster one moment, and the brink of breakthrough the next. We are in the process of understanding the cause and effect of our present situation. The laws of karma and the laws of cause and effect are the same – any action or event will produce a response to that action in the form of another event.
It is that response that we have been discovering since our arrival in the 2 energy of the 2000s. 2 is responsive energy, feminine energy, which explains why we are all feeling our emotions more deeply than we ever thought we could. That response is in recognition of reality.
Through a clearer understanding of karma, this huge global learning experience we’re all having can become a great source of opportunity. By understanding why certain situations keep repeating themselves, we can develop a more realistic and optimistic outlook about the future. Recognition means that we finally know what we’re dealing with – and that is half the battle right there!

The karmic implications of 13/4 involve misunderstandings about accomplishment and long term wellbeing. On a personal level, we can find ourselves in jobs or situations that offer no satisfaction. Individuals either hate the work they do, the environment in which they work, are not adequately compensated for their efforts – or all of the above. Most of us recognize how destructive and all-consuming this industrial system is, but we depend on it to keep a roof over our heads and survive.
4 is the number of limitation. Those who control the system right now want no limitations whatsoever, while they place as many limitations on the population as suits their purpose. 4 is the number of work, but also of ‘how’ things work, and nothing can work well when it is out of balance. 4 is the number of ORGANIZATION, and that is what balance requires. In any system, balance means arranging things in a way that enables energy to move freely, and as it needs to.
Quite the opposite is happening on Earth. Things are being arranged so that Earth’s abundance is siphoned to the top. With all that weight so unevenly distributed, the system cannot hold itself together. It will crash if appropriate regulations are not implemented to keep the balance. That is the main purpose of government – to keep the balance points clear, free, flexible and supported, so that people can coexist freely and peacefully, not only with each other but with all of life’s immeasurable diversity. The problem is that governments, as they stand today, do not understand that their true purpose is to serve, not exploit.
Many people are feeling an urge to be more organized, but are not sure how to go about it. 13/4 makes us rigid and uncompromising, or utterly helpless if we do not have a specific GOAL to aim for. 4 needs a goal to work towards in order to satisfy its enormous desire for PURPOSE. It has to have a REASON to work, otherwise it starts to make hard work out of easy tasks.
13/4 can make us complacent, indifferent, judgmental, selfish, disorganized, and lazy, especially when it comes to taking an unusual or solitary stance. When we are not true to ourselves, we are left with strong feelings of dissatisfaction. We don’t like ourselves when we cannot summon the courage to stand up for what we believe in.
In 13/4, we tend to judge ourselves on how productive we are. “He’s such a good guy. What a hard worker!” But what does being a hard worker have to do with being a good guy? If we do not keep a balanced perspective between the importance of one’s job and one’s value as a human being, many problems arise, including feelings of superiority – those delusions of grandeur which seem to consume many of the people in control – and the feelings of hopelessness being felt by those who depend on those in control for basic survival (which is almost everyone on Earth).
Don’t worry about the number 13. There is far too much superstition about this number which was brought about centuries ago by power hungry leaders who used it as a fear tactic to keep the masses under control. There is nothing ‘unlucky’ about 13. It represents originality, breakthrough and evolution. It helps us create change by ending obsolete belief systems and opening new levels of consciousness that are based on curiosity, freedom, peace, love, learning and creativity.
In its unacknowledged form, 13/4 can produce dishonesty and lack of integrity. In the other extreme, it can produce the lack of desire to put any effort into gaining material and financial stability. But, when effort and work are accepted as a means of achieving what we want, a positive transformation occurs within, which is then reflected into our outer reality. Self-discipline and FOCUS, when needed, will enable us to succeed.
Because 4 is the number of how things work, we need to pay attention to what is happening in the world of science. The meaning of the word science is KNOWLEDGE. Science is a system which researches and organizes everything that is known about the physical world. It is essential that we turn to science for information, but it is also essential to regulate science in a way that does not curtail its capacity to discover new things, but also does not allow individuals and groups within the scientific community to hold the world hostage the way the industrial system is doing. For example, it is quite obvious that many so-called ‘scientific studies’ are concocted to boost the profits of corporations rather than protect or educate the population. Science must not become a new ‘god’ to compete or collaborate with that other ‘god’, money.
14/5 involves grabbing freedom for oneself at the expense of others, or in a way that undermines one’s own best interests. It involves overindulgence in the physical aspects of life at the expense of inner development. 14/5 involves lack of accountability and exposes self-centeredness, laziness, incompetence, lack of caring, erratic behavior and the inability to finish what we start.
The 14/5 vibration exposes excesses of food, drugs, alcohol, sex, and all kinds of addictions, including phones, TVs, computers, and anything else that we are unnecessarily dependent on. Many of the electronic devices we use are supposed to give us more freedom, but have ended up consuming our time and attention and are actually taking our freedom away.
The unstable nature of 14/5 prevents us from getting what we want until we recognize mistakes, stop repeating them, and find new and more effective approaches. But problems worsen when we allow guilt to deride us for making a mistake. Making mistakes is often how we learn. However, since we also need to be accountable for what we do, we must learn as quickly as possible before serious mistakes are made and harm is done. Learning from mistakes is how EXPERIENCE is gained. Once we understand that, we can proceed in a more intelligent way, which means learning as we go.
One of the most important lessons that 14/5 has to teach is, in freedom, no one owes anyone anything. Only by taking responsibility for ourselves can we ever loosen the grip that this slowly collapsing industrial system has on us. 14/5 encourages us to support and sustain ourselves in ways that are true to one’s spirit. The 14/5 karmic vibration teaches us how to deal with the unfamiliar – and with the shock that often accompanies sudden change and unforeseen events – without losing our compassion. We must regain our sense of adventure because fear of the unknown is preventing us from making the changes we need to.
We must learn to adapt to unexpected or unusual occurrences and, at the same time, stay focused on what needs to be done, otherwise the shock of sudden change will keep us confined and too afraid to take the next step. Since life may often feel like a roller-coaster, we must learn to be flexible and have faith in our ability to cope.
14/5 exposes our appetite for distraction and teaches us to use our freedom more constructively. We must learn to stay focused for long enough to accomplish something and, then, know when to detach ourselves before we become trapped in it. We must know when it’s time to stay and when it is time to move on. 5 is the number of gambling and, as any gambler will testify, “you gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em”. We also have to know whether taking a gamble is the right thing to do in the first place, or whether a more tried and tested approach would best suit our purposes. We must rely on our instincts and feelings more than we ever had to do in the past, but when we realize that’s what we’re doing, we will probably not want it any other way. Deep down, human beings crave to be independent and lead our own lives. Those are strong principles of the #1 – the number of the individual.
Some people feel that they have no responsibility to others. This often means that someone else is shouldering responsibilities that are not entirely theirs – and/or the plight of those who really do need help is ignored. A balance must be reached.
5 is the number of all things ‘different’, including different beliefs, races and cultures. 14/5 exposes the prejudices we hold inside, and how we pre-judge people and situations simply because they are different. Much of our karma will lift when we learn to live freely among others who are trying to do the same thing.
We cannot continue to pretend reality away, and 14/5 exposes our tendency to lie to ourselves. For as long as we keep up the pretense of how we feel, lies will be accepted as the norm… We are evolving from an era we named the information age – into a new reality of truth. The resistance to this continues to be fierce!

16/7 affects matters of SELF-AWARENESS, DIGNITY, and PRIDE, as well as SECRETS and LIES. It involves the abuse of power, and the formation of partnerships for the purpose of outdoing or controlling others. 16/7 is the number of conspiracies, and not just the theories behind them. This is the ultimate ‘smoke and mirrors’ energy which, like 14/5, comes from self-centeredness, arrogance and lack of accountability. Love can exist within this energy, but distorted motives can result in some decidedly unloving behavior.
16/7 energy has a very large presence on Earth right now. The self-centeredness from which it stems is actually a form of fear, in denial – the fear of rejection to be precise. 16/7 energy holds many fears in denial which, of course, does not make the fear go away. Fear in denial cannot be soothed and healed. Therefore, until the denial stops, the individual must carry its weight around, making him or her very difficult to get to know or even approach. This is a very moody energy which makes a person appear calm and confident some of the time, and then, out of the blue, paranoid and unreasonable.
In the 16/7 karmic energy, people tend to be very successful, only to fall from grace later on, and lose more than they ever bargained for. This is the energy from which scandals are made. The ‘16/7 fall’ occurs when people have been overly secretive, or engaged in some kind of conspiracy to improve their own position regardless of the harm they inflict on others. This karmic energy can bring out criminal tendencies and an appetite for secretive, illicit behavior. We are likely to see many scenarios like this play out on the world stage in the weeks and months ahead. It seems that a lot of prominent people are headed for a fall. When the masses understand HOW this system works, the system cannot work because it depends on secrecy to operate. Empires fall as truth closes in on them.
Wherever people are expressing themselves with exaggerated pride or vanity, or are seeking revenge, their difficulties are likely to grow worse.
The answer to 16/7 is OPENNESS and HONESTY. This is what will help us maintain FAITH in ourselves and other people, and in life itself, no matter how tough the going gets.
There is a ‘strangeness’ about the 16/7 energy which acts as a veil for all kinds of deceptions and secret activity. Many situations that appear to be mere quirks of fate or “coincidences” are often the result of 16/7 energy reaching its point of no return.
