Here we will explain how to calculate your life challenge numbers. Just in case you have forgotten how to do this here are the formulas again.
1. Reduce your birth day, month and year separately down single digits.
2. To calculate your Early Life Challenge number, find the difference between the reduced Month and Day of your birth by subtracting the lower number for the higher.
3. To find your Middle Life Challenge find the difference between the reduced YEAR and DAY of birth.
4. To find your Main Life Number find the difference between the Early Life Challenge and the Middle Life Challenge number by subtracting the lower figure from the higher one.
Once you have found the three numbers you can read about the challenges that they indicate for that particular life period. Remember that the Early Life Challenge number equates to your first 28 years and the Middle Life Challenge number equates to your second 28 years on earth. The Main Challenge number describes your final phase of life as well as the primary difficulty or challenge that you will always have to face throughout your entire life.
Life Challenge Number 0
People with a challenge Number 0 may feel in general like they are being confronted with difficulties that seem to be relentless and coming from all directions. Usually people who are zeros are very sophisticated spiritually and thought to possess the abilities of all the other numbers. However they have problems making definitive decisions and sticking with them. In early life this can manifest as a difficult or abusive childhood. In adult life you may overcome great obstacles to succeed.
Life Challenge Number 1
People with a life challenge Number 1 may feel as if every dream and ambition that they have is being thwarted by unfair circumstances. Bitterness, defensiveness and blaming others may be a chronic problem.
Usually this is due to being too pushy or aggressive. Even if you are not unreliable or unpredictable, others may percieve you as so. A gentler touch plus a well focused, methodical plan can help you achieve your aims. You self-sabotage by plunging ahead blindly.
Life Number Challenge Number 2
The challenges presented for a number two are oversensitivity and a tendency towards self-centeredness. It may be difficult for you to realize that you are not the center of the universe. In your early years your lack of ambition, status consciousness and need for approval from others may cause you to have a poor self image. In adult life twos are very prone to codependency, addiction and troubled relationships if they cannot learn to let go of their resentments and blame.
Life Challenge Number 3
This represents a period in your life when you might find it hard to focus either because of emotional or psychological disturbances or because of boredom. Your attention may be scattered and you might also suffer from shyness. You may have a great imagination or talent but have difficulty expressing it. In childhood this can result in frustration and introversion. In your adult years you may come off as too arrogant or eccentric to be taken seriously by anyone.
Life Challenge Number 4
This number often suggests a difficulty with finding employment or a gratifying the career. You just may not feel like working or suffer from a disorder or disability that prevents you from working. In your early years your opportunities to learn may have been truncated by physical or financial circumstances. In adulthood you may become an irresponsible or impractical individual who can’t be trusted.
Life Challenge Number 5
This number usually defines a character that is unreasonable, indecisive and easily irritated. You have an impulsive nature and often run into trouble because you are unable to see the consequences of your actions beforehand. In your early years this may result in an incomplete education or a number of false starts in your career. As an adult your challenges manifest as an inability to make decisions and acting in an overly emotional as opposed to logical way.
Life Challenge Number 6
You may be a perfectionist and set standards for yourself and others that are impossible to meet. You may come off as very arrogant, controlling and demanding to others. As a child you may have seriously butted horns with several authority figures. As an adult you may have many unsettling relationships because of your refusal to recognize that others are entitled to their point of view. Your rigidity could lead to a disorder such as obsessive compulsiveness.
Life Challenge Number 7
This number has a great deal of trouble dealing with emotions. During this time in your life you may feel as if you have to repress your feelings in order to survive. As a child this can lead to introversion, obsessiveness and a complete retreat from reality. As an adult you may suffer from chronically negative thoughts and express them through constant complaining or criticism of others. Many sevens are hypochondriacs or manifest disease as a result of suppressed anger or grief.
Life Challenge Number 8
A number 8 challenge indicates a kind of shallowness and greed. You might define yourself and others by appearance, possessions and by the amount of money that they have. As a child you may have been clever, manipulative and insistent on having your own way. As an adult you might value the pursuit of money, power and status to the exclusion of all other things. This can cost you dearly in terms of relationships, family and friends.
Please note that there are only 0 – 8 interpretations because no calculation results in a difference higher than eight when performing Life Challenge Number calculations.
