What Is Karmic Debt & How Do You Repay It?

Ahhh, the dreadful concept of incurring karmic debt and needing to repay it. This concept tends to make people fear karma or wish ill will upon those who cause harm to us. But would it surprise you to realize that karma just seeks balance? Karma does not carry with it an emotional component.

The Cosmic Ledger: What Is Karmic Debt?

 We all have a karmic credit score, so to speak. Just like we can rack up credit card debt or create savings accounts, karmic debt is similar.  A cosmic ledger is like a spiritual balance sheet, not much unlike our monetary bank accounts.

The concept of karmic debt revolves around our soul’s history, where we may not have made the best decisions. As our souls move about from moment to moment, even lifetime to lifetime, we are presented with opportunities to make better choices, to balance, and to improve our karmic bank accounts.

All too often, we look at karma as a negative, which impacts our outlook on how karma truly operates.

The Origin and Significance of Karmic Debt

What Is Karmic Debt & How Do You Repay It?

Our souls incarnate here for the lessons and experiences we need on our Karmic Path. Each one of us who is here has soul purposes and missions. The theory is that we incur karma based on our actions in our current life and our previous ones.

The concept of a karmic debt is the belief that one has carried out negative actions that caused hurt to others, and this debt must be repaid. 

Tracing the Footprints of Karma through Reincarnation

Karma has no timeline. Karma follows us throughout our lifetimes and reincarnations. And just as no bad deed goes unpunished, no good deed goes unnoticed. We need to remember that our souls are eternal, and these earthly moments are simply blips on our soul’s RADAR. 

Many times, as we look at our life patterns and where we seem to get stuck, such as addictions, sabotaging our relationships (including our relationship with ourselves), or even financial struggles, looking at a possible past life regression can help us to unblock these karmic cycles.

Identifying Your Karmic Debt Numbers

Everything in the universe is about vibrational frequency, and this includes numbers.  While I am not a numerology expert, there are some general basics online that are helpful to identify what your karmic numbers are based on birth name and birthdate.

The Numerology Behind Karmic Debt: Uncovering Life’s Lessons

Karmic debts usually appear as unresolved recurring issues you see in your life. What patterns are you looking to change? Do you find yourself dating the same narcissistic personality? Are you constantly letting others walk all over you? As an empath, do you absorb other people’s energies and find yourself constantly drained?

There are many more scenarios like these, but the idea is to learn how to break the patterns. Once we can do this, we break out of the karmic cycle.

Manifestations of Karmic Debt in Daily Life

As you look at your life and those around you, who are the people you most interact with, on either a positive or negative level? How much of your life is dedicated to managing those relationships? Are these relationships drama-filled? Or are they filled with more elevated interactions?

This earth plane, our third-dimensional physical existence, is all about actions, reactions, and cause and effect. How we manage these determines our karmic debts and credits.

The Interplay of Karmic Debt and Relationships

Karma always gives us opportunities to balance relationships. As you look at those around you, are there people in your life where you felt a ‘love at first sight’ emotion? When you met that person, did you immediately click? Or have you ever met someone and felt a ‘hate at first sight’?

These are signs that you may have had a past life or more with them.

How Do You Repay Karmic Debt?

What Is Karmic Debt?

One of the best ways to repay karmic debt is through service to others. When we conduct our lives intending to serve others, it helps increase awareness outside ourselves. When this happens, kindness, compassion, and wisdom grow within us.

Mindful Actions: The First Step Towards Clearing Karmic Debt

You may find yourself as a caregiver for an ill loved one. This could be karma playing out to balance past life actions. Or perhaps in a past life, you weren’t kind to animals, and in this life, you find yourself volunteering at animal shelters.

There are many ways to look at this, and we can create kind and compassionate actions to clear our karmic debts.

Embracing Forgiveness: Healing the Karmic Ledger

Forgiveness has no timeline. The ability to forgive oneself for someone else for something done to us can take lifetimes to heal and balance. However, when we actively work on healing those hurts, we can accelerate our karma.

Forgiveness can come in many forms, from atonement to learning to understand the other person’s actions and where they came from. It doesn’t diminish the action against us but can help heal. One last element about forgiveness: forgiveness doesn’t have to mean forgetfulness.

Closing Thoughts

We all reincarnate here for the experiences and lessons our soul needs. Living a mortal life is not easy. However, when we truly begin to learn from our surroundings and how our actions and reactions impact us and those around us.

The goal is to attain wisdom and evolve as we go about our Karmic Paths.
