What is Numerology?

Numerology is the study of the numerical value of the letters in words, names, and ideas. Each number has a characteristic influence in our daily life.

History of Numerology

Pythagoras and other philosophers believed that because mathematical concepts were easier to regulate and classify than the physical ones, they had greater actuality. St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430) wrote

Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.

Similar to Pythagoras, he too believed that everything had numerical relationships. Hence, it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace.

 

Types of Numerology

  2. Kabbalah

In South India, the numerologists focus on three numbers

  • The Psychic number
    It shows the way by which a person views himself.
  • The Destiny number
    It shows the way to see how others perceive us.
  • The Name number
    It shows the way a person has relationships with others.

 

How does Numerology work?

Numerology works on various parameters, for example, name, birth date, etc. Numerologists calculate various types of number to identify characteristics traits of an individual.

This includes:
Life Path Number - who you are, your life purpose, the path you will walk in this life.

Soul Number - who your soul desires you to be so it can feel content and complete.

Personality Number - how others perceive you.

Destiny Number - who you are destined to become as it already resides within you.

Birth Day Number - additional personality traits, talents and abilities that assist you on your life path.

Maturity Number - your future potential, where your life is steering you after the age of 45.

Name Number - the vibration you project to the world when you use this name.

Karmic Lesson Numbers - your inherent weaknesses and lessons that must be learned.

Karmic Debt Numbers - additional life lessons

Numerology based on birth date is the most famous in the world. In this, we calculate our associated life path number and link them with our qualities.

You can calculate your associated number by adding each digit of your birthday. For example, if you were born on 12th March 1981, the compounded number is 12031981. Now, add each digit: 1+2+3+1+9+8+1= 25
Further, add the individual digits of the 2-digit number: 2+5 = 7
Therefore, 7 is the life path number.

The following list shows the dominant quality for the respective life path number

1 - Leadership
2 - Caring
3 - Creativity
4 - Follower
5 - Rebellion
6 - Responsibility
7 - Intuitive
8 - Ruler
9 - Patience
