STRONG POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE CHARACTERISTICS: THE INTENSITY TABLE THE KARMIC LESSONS THE INTENSITY POINTS THE PRIME INTENSIFIER

THE INTENSITY TABLE IS A TABLE DERIVED FROM Definitions THE LETTERS IN THE NAME. IT INDICATES CHARAC- and TERISTICS, IN ADDITION TO THE CORE CHARACTER- calcu1ations ISTICS, WHICH ARE OF ABOVE AVERAGE OR BELOW AVERAGE INTENSITY.

When calculating the Expression, the number value of each letter is written below the letter. The Intensity Table (sometimes called the Inclusion Table) simply sums up how many l's, 2's, 3's, etc. are present in the name.

We'll use Paul McCartney's birthname as an example:

james paul McCartney 11451 7133 433192557

Total the quantity of each number and you have his Intensity Table:

three 5's

For McCartney, the lack of 6 and 8 is emphasized by arrows placed to the right of the table.

When a number is lacking, that lack indicates the presence of a Karmic Lesson. A KARMIC LESSON IS A MODIFIER INDICATING POTENTIAL WEAKNESSES, DIFFICULTIES OR OBSTACLES BECAUSE THE MODIFIER ENERGY HAS NOT BEEN EXPERIENCED IN PAST LIVES. A Karmic Lesson is much less insistent than a Karmic Debt, but is still an important modifier.

In an average Intensity Table, the numbers would appear in these quantities:

Average Quantity three _

three, four, five_

zero, one_

three _

Whenever the quantity of a number exceeds or falls below the average, an Intensity Point is established. AN INTENSITY POINT IS A MODIFIER INDICATING CHARACTERISTICS OF ABOVE AVERAGE OR BELOW AVERAGE INTENSITY. It's an important modifier.

Comparing McCartney's table to the average table, McCartney has the following Intensity Points (Modifier numbers which have been established as Karmic Lessons are not duplicated as Intensity Points):

five l's exceed the average four 3's exceed the average two 4's exceed the average two 7's exceed the average one 9 falls below the average

THE PRIME INTENSIFIER, THE INTENSITY POINT APPEARING IN THE LARGEST QUANTITY, INDICATES STRONG AND OBVIOUS CHARACTERISTICS. It's an important modifier.

There's an exception to be noted here. The 5 often appears in great profusion in the Intensity Table—remember that even five 5's is just an average quantity. Use the 5 as a Prime Intensi-fier only if (a) there are more 5's than any other number, and (b) there are six or more 5's.

Number

In Paul McCartney's Intensity Table, there are only three 5's. There are five l's, and the 1 is his Prime Intensifier.

In many charts, two or more numbers appear in the greatest quantity. If two numbers appear in greatest quantity, there are two Prime Intensifiers. (Again, the 5 would be a Prime Intensifier here only if there were six or more 5's.) If more than two numbers appear in greatest quantity, the energy is too diffused and there is no Prime Intensifier.

The Intensity Table often yields many modifiers. In Paul McCartney's example, we find eight modifiers:

Karmic Lessons—6, 8

Intensity Points—five l's, four 3's, two 4's, two 7's, one 9

Prime Intensifier— 1

chart 8: the intensity table on page 312 describes the Chart 8: modifiers derived from the Intensity Table. The average quan- The Intensity tity of l's, 2's, etc. is shown in the third row. Above the Table average, in the second row, are descriptions of Intensity Points where the quantity exceeds the average. As you can see, there are usually two descriptions for each modifier number. One description, somewhat above average quantity, usually indicates strong positive traits associated with the particular modifier energy, along with some negative characteristics requiring work. The" second description, with an even greater than average quantity, indicates the very strong positive traits along with very strong negative traits brought about by the excess of modifier energy.

The top row describes the characteristics of the Prime Intensifier. The traits have already been noted in the row below, but the Prime Intensifier indicates that these particular qualities are likely to form a very strong and obvious part of the personality.

Just as the rows above the average quantity describe an excess of modifier energy, the rows below describe a lack of energy. In the fourth row, are descriptions of the Intensity Points where the quantity is less than average.

These Intensity Points always describe weaknesses or difficulties.

The bottom two rows discuss the Karmic Lessons. If there is a lack of a number in a name and that number is not one of the core elements, the description of the Karmic Lesson will be found in the bottom row. If there is a lack of a number in a

PART III: THE MODIFIERS

name and that number is one of the core elements, this Modified Karmic Lesson is described in the second row from the bottom. Both a Karmic Lesson and a Modified Karmic Lesson indicate a significant coloration of the core, but the intensity of the lesson is somewhat mitigated with the Modified Karmic Lesson because of the energy available in the core.

Commentary: Intensity Points

If there's an average quantity of a number, the traits connected with that number are balanced, at least from the point of view of the Intensity Table. You'll find many names where the quantity is never far from the average. In this common case, there is a relatively subtle emphasis on the characteristics described by the Intensity Points. The more significant traits are the ones where the quantity of the number diverges sharply from the average.

An over-excess of 5, 7, or 8 will tend to give added impetus primarily to the positive traits associated with the modifier energies. Too many 3's or 4's will produce stress on both positive and negative traits. But too many l's, 2's, 6's or 9's will overemphasize the negative side of the energies.

Imagine a person with six 3's, far more than the average one or two. It's true that there may be strong artistic talents expressed, but there may also be a tendency to be self-centered and selfish, scattering energies or acting in an immoderate manner (from the 3 page, second row, of Chart 8). If the core already indicates a potential for self-centeredness with strong 1, 4 or 8 energy, this Intensity Point will add to the stress on this characteristic. If, on the other hand, the core, with strong 2, 6, or 9 energy, indicates a giving, loving person, we would expect the addition of the six 3's to describe a giving, loving person who is, at times, unexpectedly selfish or extravagant.

The strength of the divergence is also significant when there's a smaller quantity than average. 5 is usually present in a larger quantity than other numbers. 9 is often found in above average quantity. And 1 is generally present in average or slightly below average quantity (two or three). When 1, 5 or 9 is present in less than average quantity, a significant disbalance is being described. If there's only one 1 or one 5 or one 9, the delineation will be strongly affected.

The average quantity is not proportional to the number of letters in the name. Six 3's or seven l's are just as significant in a very long as in a very short name. If we find one 1 or five or more l's four or more 2's four or more 3's four or more 4's one 5 or seven or more 5's four or more 6's three or more 7's three or more 8's one 9 or five or more 9's we can be sure that those Intensity Points will sharply alter the core description.

The significance of the Prime Intensifier is similarly related to the divergence from the average. If the Prime Intensifier is, for example, four l's (one above average), the person will find it important to follow his own bent and make sure his needs are met (from the 1 page, top row, of Chart 8), but the emphasis on this characteristic is not likely to be particularly intense. But, suppose the person has seven l's. You can be sure that this person will work long and hard at meeting his personal needs. If the core indicates the possibility of strong, self-centered energies (1,4, or 8 stressed), you can be sure that the person will appear as a dominating, even bullying sort. If, on the other hand, the core describes a more giving person (2,6 or 9 emphasized), the individual is likely to have less personal needs, but will, nevertheless, be sure to get those needs met. There's likely to be a core of iron that becomes most obvious at times when those limited needs are not being satisfied. If there's a conflict of core energies^r-sjuch as 6 energy toward responsibility conflicting with 5 energy toward freedom—the person's discontent and frustration at meeting his confusing needs will be most apparent.

Commentary: Prime Intensifier

The Karmic Lesson represents energy to which a person has not been exposed in previous lifetimes. Whether the potential was purposely avoided or whether circumstances prevented the particular potential from surfacing is not clear, but the lack of exposure to the energy will make a strong mark on the subject in this lifetime.

Presence of a Karmic Lesson indicates the presence of certain types of situations and the necessity to use specific energies to deal with these situations. If there's a Karmic Lesson, there is no question that the situations will play an important part in the life. But the determination of whether the subject has the required energies or must develop them poses a more difficult question. Examination of the core and the other modifiers, often, but not always, provides some clues.

Commentary: Karmic Lessons

For example, Irene with a 4 Karmic Lesson is likely to face situations where an awareness of practicality, organization, hard work and concern with detail is required. (See the 4 page, bottom row, of Chart 8.) You can be sure that Irene is often going to be involved in experiences where she must work slowly, surely, consistently; must start at the foundation and build with care, with concern for the details and patience to see the experiences through to completion.

If Irene's core and other modifiers primarily emphasize freedom and versatility, she will start out in life feeling restricted by situations demanding patient and careful attention to detail. The experiences will require energies which she is unable to give and her development will be impeded as she struggles to develop the requisite energies. When Irene has learned her lesson and developed the required energies, the same or similar situations are still likely to be important in her life. Her learned ability to handle the situations, however, will not make them appear as obstacles. Rather, these experiences will now further her ability to grow and develop.

If Irene has a 4 Karmic Lesson, and the core and modifiers indicate additional energies devoted to care, patience, hard work as well as approximately equal energies devoted to freedom and versatility, it isn't possible to state whether the lesson poses an obstacle or not. You can only indicate the presence of the related situations, but you can't determine whether Irene will use the energies to advantage.

If Irene has a 4 Karmic Lesson, but also has core and modifier energies emphasizing care, patience and hard work, she will be born with the ability to handle the situations that will develop in that area, and her development will not be impeded.

Commentary: Modified Karmic Lessons

When the number of the Karmic Lesson also appears as a core element, we have a Modified Karmic Lesson. The experiences related to the Karmic Lesson will be present, but there will also be strong core energy available to deal with the experiences. The presence of a Modified Karmic Lesson with positive core potential indicates the innate ability to handle the situations which arise. Only if the core energy is expressing negatively (because of master numbers, doubled elements or Karmic Debts) will the situations prove an obstacle.

Organization The modifiers derived from the Intensity Table appear as fol-sheet lows on the organization sheet (Figure 12-1):

The Karmic Lesson (s) appear in the negative potential column.

The Modified Karmic Lesson (s) appear in the negative potential column.

The above-average Intensity Point(s) appear in the positive potential column.

The below-average Intensity Point(s) appear in the negative potential column.

The Prime Intensifier(s) appear in the positive potential column.

The modifiers discussed in this chapter are important, but they rarely stand out in a reading. Usually, the effect of these modifiers is blended with the effect of other modifiers to subtly color the basic picture presented by the core. There are two common instances where the effect of the modifiers is strongly expressed:

a. When the Karmic Lesson indicates a situation which is distinctly conflicted with the other energies in the chart.

b. When an above average Intensity Point diverges greatly from the average.

Special Occasionally, you'll meet an individual with no Karmic cases Lessons. This "old soul" has been reincarnated many times and has been exposed to all the lessons often enough to have some awareness of all of them. Don't expect this person to have little difficulty in life. Rather, expect that this person, particularly on reaching maturity, is likely to present a well-balanced personality and a depth of understanding.

Note this lack of Karmic Lessons at the bottom of the organization sheet (Figure 12-2 on page 137). Be sure to emphasize this extremely positive characteristic in the delineation.

The old souls are rare—probably some five percent of the populace. Most people have one or two Karmic Lessons. Three Karmic Lessons aren't even that far out of the ordinary. But if you find a subject with four or more Karmic Lessons, you are dealing with an individual who has not been exposed to about half of the energies that are available. A significant part of this individual's life will be used in coming to grips with these myriad lessons. Even if the person has some strong positive core or modifier energies which help with some of the lessons, he is still likely to feel considerably blocked.

When there are four or more Karmic Lessons, note this at the bottom of the organization sheet (Figure 12-3 on page 138) and express the resultant negative coloration in as constructive a manner as possible.

Only rarely will you find a 1, 5 or 9 Karmic Lesson. The energies denoted by the 1, 5 or 9 are quite common, and the lack of that energy provides a very significant coloration—just a little weaker than a Karmic Debt. The subject with this lack has an obstacle to overcome that is likely to be one of the important parameters in the character development.

Almost as rare as old souls are individuals who have at least Rarity one 7 in their name. Perhaps ten percent of people will not of the 7 have a 7 Karmic Lesson, indicating that this ten percent is more spiritually evolved than those lacking the 7. In our materialistic society, the qualities missing because of the lack of the 7 tend to be thought of as of little consequence, certainly of less consequence than the lack of any other number. If there is a 7 Karmic Lesson and no 7 core element or other 7 modifier, you may want to ignore the 7 Karmic Lesson altogether in the delineation. That isn't true of any other number.
