These days personality profiling is widely held. Some of these popular models for example, are Carl Jung / Myers Briggs types, the Enneagram and The Five Factor. However numerology could be considered an unusual type of personality profiling. It’s unique in relation to other psychological typologies, which question you about your behavioural tendencies and mental processing. These techniques follow an analytical line of enquiry, seeking to understand how your ego is formed, to create your personality. The reason numerology becomes so interesting, is that it doesn’t ask who are you? Instead it asks the question, who were you destined to be?
Don’t get me wrong, there is a much needed place for the field of personality typing, from the angle of the mind. However, I feel we are missing something, when we reject, or neglect the more subtle, universal and spiritual evolution of how we came to be.
Numerology As A Blueprint For Your Life
Akin to astrology, we move outside of the confines of the genetic component, the psyche formation and our socialisation, into the arena of the “probability of you”. Numerology speaks the language of possibility and likelihood toward certain approaches, styles and ways of living. This is what makes reuniting with our numbers so incredibly enlightening. It’s their ability to reflect who we are, right back at us.
It’s like having a blueprint of our own design right in front of us, and getting a chance to clarify where we are losing ourselves and where we are being ourselves in our current moment. It’s a catalyst for you to move even closer to your authenticity. You can’t deny the certainty and power of your date of birth and your birth name. On the other hand, you can question the filters through which many psychological typologies have come into being, because they must be born out of another person’s mind first, however useful, from a scientific viewpoint, there is a hint of questionability within each of these models. You could argue that even a numerology review must of course derive through the numerologist’s filter, and therefore the knowledge, skill and interpretation used, would determine the way the information about you is presented or understood.
You & The Universe: The Same Building Blocks
Although, regardless of whether there has been enough success in conveying your energetic number blueprint to you, you have been introduced to the concreteness of the numbers around and within you. This cannot be altered. It is fact and fabric. The fabric of the universe is, from a quantum perspective, built on numbers, and so are you. You have a unique vibration to your being which is influenced by all of the living you have done, and continue to do, in all of the mental, physical and emotional fields and then there is your road map, which speaks of who you were right at the outset.
When you begin to understand the actual feelings and dispositions of the numbers, their ability to influence both particular positive and negative traits and behaviours in you, it’s like seeing a flow of colours or musical harmonies, melding together to create your unique blend. It’s a code, and a recipe for certain things to happen, or not happen. We each have a different mixture, we are meant to be that way, or things would be boring, not to mention ineffective.
The Life Path Number: The Backbone Of Who You Are
When mapping your entire numerology chart, we would find four main numbers from your date of birth and birth name, which communicate your core number pattern. But the number information doesn’t stop there; quite a few more formulas produce an effective picture of your personality and path. However, the life path number, which is heard of most frequently, acts like the backbone from which all other numbers in your chart commit themselves to. It provides your overriding life opportunity.
Calculating Your Life Path Number
Here’s a quick explanation of how to work out your life path number using Pythagorean numerology. Once you have your number, scroll down to find out about your fundamental self.
Add your date of birth in separate columns, for example
20th June 1985
2 6 23
Reduce them down further, unless you have a number 11 or 22, (these are master numbers and are always kept and added as the double digit)
2 6 5
Add them up
2 + 6 + 5 = 13
Add the last number to reduce to a single digit, unless in the case of a number 11 or 22
1 + 3 = 4
In this case your life path number is = Number 4!
Example with master number:
3rd November 1968
3 11 24
3 11 6
3 + 11 + 6 = 20
2 + 0 = Number 2
