What is numerology?

Numerology is an in-depth analysis of numbers to discover more information about a person or event. To determine these attributes about who you are as a soul, a numerology chart is formulated by your date of birth and your name. Your numerology chart also determines your Life Path number, which is an important number to help reveal what is in store for your future.
Numerology can help explain your personal motivations, strengths, weaknesses and emotional reactions to situations. A trained numerologist can even help you better understand your career path, health and relationships.
An excellent book to help guide you is The Life you Were Born to Live: A Guide to Finding Your Life’s Purpose by Dan Millman. In this book, Millman explains your vibrations, along with the positive and negative attributes of your Life Path number.

There are three types of numerology:


Kabbalah numerology

Kabbalah numerology is derived from Hebrew mysticism. The focus is on a higher sense of self-awareness and staying true to who you are. Kabbalah numerology focuses on the first and middle names (each letter has a corresponding number).

Chaldean numerology

Chaldean numerology is the most popular form of numerology and is closely tied to astrology. The Chaldean approach indicates that each letter of the alphabet is tied to a sound and unique vibration. It is the letter’s vibration that is then linked to a number.

Pythagorean numerology

Pythagoras was a Greek mathematician known as the father of modern numerology. The Pythagorean system follows his view of numbers and uses the date of birth and the letters of a person’s name to determine their destiny.

How numerology works

There are four main components found in your numerology chart to help you better understand yourself and your future. These core numbers are constructed from your birth name and/or birthday and have a deep impact on who you are as a person.
1. Life Path number
The most important core number is the Life Path number which reveals the outline for your life: the challenges, opportunities and lessons you will face.
2. The Expression number
The Expression number shows your strengths and weaknesses and how you will handle life’s lessons.
3. The Soul Urge number
The Soul Urge number is your heart’s true desire – what it is that you really want.
4. Your Birthday number
Your Birthday number highlights your talents that will help to better your life.

How to find your Life Path number

As stated earlier, the Life Path number is the most important. So how do we use numerology to determine our Life Path number?
Let’s find it:
Break down the month, day and year you were born, then find the sum
Let’s use March 19, 2011 as an example:

  • March is the 3rd month (0 + 3 = 3)
  • The date is the 19th (1 + 9 = 10 which reduces to 1 + 0 = 1)
  • The year 2011 (2 + 0 + 1 + 1 = 4)
  • Now add the remaining single digits (3 + 1 + 4 = 7)
  • 7 = the Life Path number
  • Research the number 7 (or whatever your Life Path number is) in numerology to learn more about your Life Path



How to apply numerology to your life

Numerology is a guidance system that will quickly change your perspective. You will begin to see the connection, patterns and synchronicity with numbers throughout your day. The moment you choose to understand your Life Path number, you delve into a world of self-discovery and a can attain a deeper comprehension of your life.
When you become aware of the vibration your number carries, you begin the process of living the life you are meant to live. Numbers will soon become magic to your eyes, and your self-awareness will help you succeed in all areas of life.
A new chapter is being written in 2017, and the end of a nine year cycle has arrived. The number 1 represents 2017 (2+0+1+7 =1), which means a new beginning is emerging. Anyone who went through a challenging 2016 will reap the rewards in the coming year. Your dreams are in the making.
