2Number 9’s can correct their karma by displaying more faith in the concept that the universe is a benevolent, rather than a cruel place. Detaching from their emotions and consistently displaying an upbeat and positive attitude usually brings them great rewards. Your biggest fear is that others will never trust you or vice versa. Others’ first impression of you might be of a person that is desperately seeking approval or as passive aggressive.

This karmic number deals with learning to be more selfless and put others needs ahead of your own desires. 9 is the number of the humanitarian who is called in life to help the suffering and struggling. They often develop their empathy for others through difficult experiences of their own in life.

When the number 9 is missing from one’s name, the person has the karmic lesson number 9. The number signifies responsibility and wisdom. People with this number have a mission or a goal to make the world a better place to live in. This number denotes service to humanity.

Number 9 represents the ‘earthly lesson’ which denotes “mercy”. Thus these people work towards the good of others. They have a protective energy in their soul. These people learn throughout their life to be tolerant, altruistic, generous and compassionate. This person will show great strength of character, acumen, sensitivity and idealism. They tend to be homely and caring towards their family and friends. They need to learn to be less egocentric. There will be times when they will need to sacrifice for the good of others. They need to view life on a larger scale as they are here to serve humanity. They have the potential to be able to influence the fate of themselves and others for the good, but they do not realize it themselves. Thus at times they refrain from advancing any social cause. The effect of this lesson reduces if number 9 is present in any of the core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Expression, Hearts Desire, or Personality Number). You have a severe lack of empathy or compassion. Even in your own head, your thoughts often strike you as being callous or uncaring. You need to learn to give people the opportunity to fail in front of you. This is how all of us learn and grow. Develop a sense of tolerance for other people’s limitations

Life will force you to become less egocentric and closed-minded. It will teach you how to see the Big Picture and how each and every person and thing around you has value. You will learn that other people’s opinions matter. You will discover what it is to relate to other people’s pain. You will learn the importance of showing kindness and compassion. You will learn that there is fulfillment in helping other people, even in seemingly small ways. You will find yourself struggling to function within the community until you recognize that you are part of it and it is part of you. Take the initiative to simply talk to people. Get to know them on a more meaningful level. Don’t be afraid to lend an ear to someone’s story now and then. Odds are you will learn a great deal about yourself from those experiences. You can correct your karma in this lifetime by displaying more faith in the concept that the Universe is a benevolent, rather than a cruel place. Detaching from your emotions and consistently displaying an upbeat and positive attitude will usually bring you great rewards. Your biggest fear is that others will never trust you or vice versa. Others’ first impression of you might be of a person that is desperately seeking approval or as a passive aggressive.

The person possessing the karmic number 9 may give little importance to material things. Conversely, they may have a tendency to seem egotistical, self-centered or even excessively jealous. They will have to learn how to be more understanding and sympathetic with others. They will have to keep a close watch on their emotional side.

If the karma calculation gives a total of letters with a value of 9 that is 30% superior in comparison with the total of the first and last names’ letters, the person may be too emotional about others and themselves.
They tend to feel sorry for themselves, and sacrifice themselves. Their way of thinking their life cannot be changed – which is false – worries them and makes them unhappy. They will have to pull themselves together and keep the faith.
