Numerology is one of the world’s oldest forms of metaphysical communication and interpretation. In ancient times, primitive tribes used numbers to communicate and trade ideas. Today numerology is an intriguing fusion of cabalism, religion and occult divination.
Nobody really knows the exact origins of numerology, but both Kabbalists and the ancient Egyptians practiced it many ages before the birth of Christ.
Numerologists maintain that every number expresses a cosmic vibration as well as a mathematical quantity. Both Pythogaras (530 BC) and Agrippa (1534 AD ) elaborated on this concept that all things in the universe are associated with a number. Both mathematicians surmised that numbers embody both a tangible (mathematical) and intangible (spiritual) quantity.
In the early twentieth century, the science of numerology was revived by a series of books published from 1911-1917 by L. Dow Balliett. In the 1930′s the subject once again was expounded by the great mystic -Florence Campbell. These two writers developed most of the formulas that are used today to reduce names down to numbers to decipher future events.
Modern numerologists follow the same principles as established by Balliett and Campbell but have added psychological, behavioral and personality testing components to the interpretation of numerical equations.
