1The 3 karma number must learn balance between work and play. Organization and managing one’s time and resources effectively and efficiently can be a challenge for those with a 3 karma number.
Do the creative things you love just for the sheer joy of doing them and the money will come. If you start feeling that the world owes you a living, immediately go out and practice an act of random kindness or charity to humble yourself. Being smothered bored or trapped are among your biggest fears. You may appear threatening or meddlesome to others at first impression.
You are your own worst critic. You find the spotlight to be embarrassing, mostly because you have already convinced yourself that everything you have to offer is somehow fundamentally flawed. You adhere to a goal of perfectionism that is unreachable and yet you weigh all your actions, intentions, talents, abilities and self-worth against it. In short, you need to relax. Keep on like this and you will never get any joy out of life. Learn how to laugh. More importantly, learn how to laugh at yourself. It is wonderful therapy. Life is going to place you in the position of having to think creatively and come up with out-of-the-box solutions to various problems. The trick is going to be in getting yourself to trust your own instincts and intuitions; you are going to need to get out of your own way or this failure complex of yours is going to escalate into a self-fulfilling prophecy. Threes are often very artistic. If your Karmic Lesson is 3, however, success will be a long and difficult road. You will get there, but it will be a steady, steep uphill climb.

When the number 3 goes missing in karmic numerology, the person may tend to withdraw into their shell, be shy or even sometimes clumsy. They may have trouble expressing themselves emotionally.
Developing their artistic talents can only be beneficial to them. Destiny could send new challenges their way, challenges in terms of expression that would force them to express themselves, to physically and orally show what they feel.   They might be called to partake in social events and have to communicate with the public. They will have to be persevering in the field that interests them most and not spread themselves too thin.

 In Excess

In a karmic study, this category concerns those whose third box contains more than three letters equal to this value.
Particular case: if the first name and last name are made up of less than 12 letters in total, there will be an imbalance as soon as there are 2 letters in this box.
Such a person has a gift for expression and creativity. They often need to express themselves and even sometimes to excess. Their innate intuition is excellent, so they must trust it.
However, they will have to avoid wasting their energy by trying to do too many things at the same time.

A 3 Karmic Lesson or Life Challenge indicates that you might find it hard to focus, either because of emotional or psychological disturbances or because of boredom. Your attentions may be scattered and you might also suffer from shyness. You may have a great imagination or talent but have difficulty expressing it. In childhood this can result in frustration and introversion. In your adult years you may come off as too arrogant or eccentric to be taken seriously by anyone. Do the creative things you love just for the sheer joy of doing them and the money will come.

If you start feeling that the world owes you a living, immediately go out and practice an act of random kindness or charity to humble you. Being smothered bored or trapped are among your biggest fears. You may appear threatening or meddlesome to others at first impression.

People who have number 3 missing in their names have their karmic lesson number as 3. These people tend to be self-critical. They are not able to handle attention and find some flaw or else in their conduct. These people set an incredible standard of excellence that they want to reach. They need to learn to lighten up and be less critical of themselves. These people should learn to understand that their self-criticism needs to be controlled. Thus they should enjoy themselves more. They also tend to be shy and introvert. Shirk off all the seriousness and be more buoyant and optimistic towards life, and share the joy with others. These people are also not very attentive because of emotional disturbances or plain boredom. When they are adult they are perceived as eccentric or arrogant and thus are not taken seriously by others. They are talented but life will also put challenges that will need them to be more expressive. These people are generally artists who will have to work persistently to achieve success.

If this number is present in any of the other core numbers of this person even once then the effect of karmic lesson lessens.
