There is living and then there is feeling alive!

Calculating your soul number can help you get back in touch with what really moves you in your life, your reason for being and what gives you true fulfillment.

If you are depressed or seem to be going in the wrong direction in life, the calculation of the soul number can remind you what puts a lift in your step and the sparkle back in your eyes.

Your Soul Number, which defines your very essence or heart’s desire, is calculated using the vowels in the name that appeared on your birth certificate.

First of all, eliminate all the consonants from your birth name by adding together the numerical equivalents displayed on the chart below.

A = 1
E = 5
I = 9
O = 6
U = 3

For amusement’s sake let’s take the example of Paris Hilton as this week’s case study.

A person who seems very materialistic and a little shallow; in other words it is difficult to see what her real heart’s desire might be on the surface.

Paris’ full birth name is Paris Whitney Hilton. After we eliminate all the consonants from her name we end up with:

AI IE IO

We then would refer to the above chart and add the numerical equivalents of the vowels in her name together as in:

1+9 + 9+5 + 9+6 = 39

Adding 3 + 9 gives us 12. Adding 1 + 2 gives us 3.

So Paris Hilton’s soul number is a 3.

There are no surprises here. Paris Hilton’s soul urge is to delight and amuse others. Threes are the performers and entertainers of the numerology system and one mark of a three is that they will always crave fame. Three is definitely the number of the showoff, which is fully displayed by her love of outrageous clothing.

The fact that she is a three also explains why Hilton, who does not need to work for a living, spends so much of her time modeling, acting and making personal appearances. This call to greater things can make her quite inflexible emotionally. All of her energy would be channeled into career and travel as opposed to putting down roots anywhere.

The romantic life of a three is often marked by very rocky phases. It is difficult for others to understand the three’s need to find approval outside the sphere of a relationship. This is because mass approval often means more to them than an individual intimacy.

In love, three is the number of separation and people with a soul urge number three may often find something coming between them and love. Usually this issue is career or travel but many threes find themselves being the odd man out in a love triangle.

Because of their mercurial natures threes often always find themselves in a series of relationships and rarely stay put in one relationship for life. In the case of Hilton’s most famous relationship with another Paris, it seems that her scandalous reputation was the element that came between her and the approval of his billionaire parents.
