As far back as I can remember I have always seen number patterns everywhere, whenever my mind would wander, I would be counting in my head or noticing licence plates and adding the numbers together. I thought everyone did this – turns out they don’t! A few years ago, I started to notice the number patterns were all starting to repeat and I was unsure what this meant so I did some research. My research led me to numerology and completing a Hay House Numerology course. Suddenly all the numbers I’d been seeing for so long took on a whole new meaning and made sense!
Using my birth name and birth date I was able to discover things about myself, what my journey in life was about, what lessons I was on this earth to learn and at what age I could expect to see the lessons. Finding these numbers and their meanings helped to fill in gaps for me on what my life journey was about. I see repeating numbers almost every day i.e.711 or 911 are regulars as are 444 and 555 – this isn’t just about looking at the clock the numbers turn up in places you wouldn’t expect to see them – my car odometer, the receipt at the checkout, the table number at the café (often get 11 and it’s not at the same café!).
So, what is numerology – well it is a scientific fact that everything in the world is made up of energy including numbers - each number has its own energy and that energy has a unique vibration. The world around us is made up of number patterns i.e. sunflower seeds can generate a logarithmic spiral pattern, and all florets make the golden angle. There are many more examples of Fibonacci sequences in nature like trees, pine cones and the nautilus shell are just a few.
Finding out your numerology information can help you with a greater awareness and self-understanding of who you are and who your partner and friends are! Your name, and the numbers derived from it, reveal your development, talents and issues you will be working through during this life.
The seven important numbers in numerology are made up from your birth name, birth date and current name:
Life path number – what your path is in this lifetime, who you are and your purpose.
Destiny number – this is who you are and what you are destined to do in this lifetime.
Soul number – this is what your soul needs you to be for you to feel content.
Personality number – this is how other people see you, who they think you are.
Maturity number – this is where we are going from around 35 – 45 years old.
Birth day number – this shows your personality and talents that will help you on your life path.
Current name number – brings additional personality traits and life experiences.
Looking at all the numbers and meanings together gives an accurate summary of a person as a whole. From calculating these number’s, we can then paint a picture of who you are, and what lessons you are here to learn. I believe we are all here to experience a particular life/journey which isn’t always wonderful, a numerology chart can help you understand what lessons you are here to experience, why things happen and through that understanding give you peace.
Nothing on earth is by accident it is all by design.
As an example lets work out the life path for Joan.
Joan’s date of birth is 5 September 1968 – we use the reducing down method to work out the life path number.
5(day) + 9 (month) + 1968 (year) 1+9+6+8 = 24 (2+4) = 6 So adding the main numbers together gives us 5+ 9 + 6 = 20 (2+0) = Life path number 2
Joan is a life path 2 which are the cooperative peace makers of the world. Supportive, good listeners with great understanding. Life path 2’s make great counsellors and healers and can see both sides of a situation. Great for comfort, love and advice.
This is what you are destined to do in your life and the life path number represents the path you will walk as you do so.
Now let’s work out Joan’s Destiny number using the chart below. To do this we write the full birth name and assign a number as below to each letter. Then add the numbers across for each name and reduce to a single digit. If you have an 11, 22 or 33 these are master numbers and do not need to be reduced down.
Joan Anne Smith = Joan 1+6+1+5 =13 (1+3) = 4, Anne 1+5+5+5 = 16 (1+6) = 7, Smith 1+4+9+2+8 = 24 (2+4) = 6. Joan 4 + Anne 7 + Smith 6 = 17 (1+7) = 8
Letters and corresponding number value
1 = A, J, S
2 = B, K, T
3 = C, L, U
4 = D, M, V
5 = E, N, W
6 = F, O, X
7 = G, P, Z
8 = H, Q
9 = I, R
Joan is destined to be a business minded leader in this life. They are good leaders and problem solvers and usually are managers or organisers. Joan has the ability to attract abundance in this life time as an 8 is a powerful manifestation number with the law of attraction.
