If you have karmic number 14/5 as one of your core numbers, you are now paying back a debt for past abuses where you abused freedom.

Remember that the number 1 (in 14) represents selfishness. 

The number 4 in the 14/5 represents the dodging of hard work and avoidance of responsibility from a previous manifestation. The 4 is all about stability, security, using step-by-step processes to achieve your goals—achieved with hard work and stepping into responsibility.

The 14/5 indicates that there has been a hefty abuse of freedom through being irresponsible and shunning any sense of stepping up, taking responsibility, and working hard in your life.  It also points to issues relating to excessive behaviors.

The Number 5

The number 5 is the teacher of the constructive use of freedom—or freedom through self-discipline.  It demands a delicate balance between freedom and escape.  Understand that the person who has the 14/5 as one of their core numbers will most likely act upon the more destructive tendencies of the number 5 until the lessons have been understood, acknowledged, acted upon, and mastered.

A Balance of Freedom & Structure

Now you’re being asked to tap into moderation—a healthy sense of discipline, commitment, organization, and routine while also embodying the freedom that the number 5 asks of you.  You must understand that committing to some sense of structure and order will actually offer the real freedom you crave.  Only then can you create a plan, set attainable goals, and gain a certain focus and clarity.

You can expect to face experiences that test you by handing you some deeply emotionally upsetting situations, some strange restrictions, and even frustrating delays.  Your test is in sticking to your commitments no matter what’s thrown your way.  Yet you can’t retract and limit yourself by becoming rigid and negative—or by giving up. Your success resides in your ability to remain flexible yet disciplined, focused yet open to change.

Put In The Work

You achieve the best results when you remain determined to do the hard work and engage in the step-by-step processes that manifest your goals. Speaking of goals, often even determining how to create a goal and then focus on it in a productive way can elude the karmic number 14/5.  You can’t blame others, bad luck, or that it’s “just the way I am” on your inability to move forward with success.  It takes a concerted effort—yet your tendency will most likely be to feel that it’s all taking far too much work and it’s all taking far too much time.

Sometimes the 14/5 presents more in the underactive elements.  So rather than feeling as though you’re the fearless adventurer and harbinger of change and progressive action, you can struggle with feelings of retraction, limitation, and fear around change and expansion.

Karmic number 14/5 key message: STICK WITH IT

Often the 14/5 finds it difficult to follow-through and focus.  This can be with relationships, career goals, or even maintaining physical health.  The key to paying back the Karmic debt is first and foremost to recognize that these are indeed issues that need to be addressed and worked with on a practical level.  Often the karmic number 14/5 can come up with every excuse to flit from thing to thing or relationship to relationship.  Understand that part of the journey of the 5 is actually having these sensuous and adventurous experiences.  Yet it is all the balance, which is often a very challenging element for the vivacious energy of the 5.


The number 5 is often a master of escape.  Therefore when you’re working with the 14/5, you’re being asked to be poster child for using all levels of freedom wisely and well.  Yet often —particularly in the younger years — those with the karmic number 14/5 can struggle with excessive behaviors.  This can be with food, drugs, alcohol, sex — anything that offers a detour from taking full responsibility for yourself.  Yet remember, if this is something you have done (“been there, done that!”) and now you’ve reined it in, then you’re paying back your debt.


Always remember that numerology offers both the optimal elements of what each number brings with it and simultaneously tests us with the opposition.  Since the 14/5 is designed to be the ultimate fearless adventurer, understand that this very theme will challenge you.  This can show up in myriad ways.  This could be an unbalanced sense of dependence which might manifest as not being able to commit to a job or career that offers a consistent income so you end up dependent upon family or a romantic interest to cover your expenses.

Or perhaps this shows up as becoming somewhat emotionally overindulgent or where you experience what might be considered emotional paralysis – meaning, you don’t follow though productively in the material world because you’re too intensely enmeshed with a heightened sense of undisciplined emotions.

If you’re willing to meet your challenge, you can shift your perspective and look at your obstacles as detours—if you can see that your goal is actually to embody the most optimal and positive potential of the number 5, then you’re at your highest and best.


Be Aware of How This Karmic Number Appears For You

Also understand that if this description just doesn’t sound anything like you (or who you think you are), then potentially you’re at a stage of development and maturity in your life—and have been working diligently on your own personal growth and evolution—that you’re more in alignment with the constructive elements of the 5.  If that describes you, then hats off!  You’ve been doing your work.  It never hurts to give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

Paying Your Karmic Debt

The gift you’re given by knowing that you have a Karmic Debt to pay is this:  Rather than feeling victimized, you can see that this is something that you brought on yourself, despite the fact that you can’t remember it.  If you exert the energy and commitment to working in the positive realm of the number 5, then you’ll reap the benefits.  Remember that when you become an expert in the positive application of the energies related to the number 5, you’re amazingly powerful and dynamic! 

The Karmic Debt can feel like an upper-level cosmic test. You must go through an intense reconstruction or regeneration process in order to come to terms and clear your Karmic slate.

Working with a Karmic number intensifies the issues related to that number.  It’s not easy.  It requires concerted effort and focused commitment.  It’s testing you and requiring that you rewire the way you work with the constructive use of freedom, adventure, fearlessness, taking others into consideration, etc.

The destructive or “spinning of your wheels” path will feel much more familiar since you’ve been there, done that.  This time, you’re being asked to extract yourself from riding in that same rut in the road—you’re required to create a new way of working with these themes that have positive results for you and everyone around you.
