If you were born into this numbers vibration, you’re on a personal journey to explore the world and expand your senses. Your highest path will take you on constant quests of discovery, to come back and share with the rest of us!

Life Path Number 5 – Highest Path

In Numerology, the Number 5 represents freedom, change and adventure.

As a person, you thrive anywhere you can express this lively and dynamic energy, yet crucially, you have a deep trust in the support of the Universe, to always take you where you need to go. The winding, wandering life you are drawn to lead, is what the world most needs you to follow, so it’s important that you embrace your Numerology.

You’re spontaneous, flexible and have a fearless streak!

Never afraid of the unknown, you’re an explorer at heart and will boldly go where others fear to tread. The safe confines of routine and daily life are not what this number aspires to inhabit. In fact, the idea of that regular 9-5 existence fills you with horror. As such, you need a lifestyle that gives you the ability to fly free whenever you feel like it and change things up at a moment’s notice

Other people find your company intoxicating. Full of tall tales and stories of high adventure, you’re a favorite dinner party guest and always guaranteed to entertain. But committed relationships can be a struggle for you – you’re more likely to have friends scattered all across the globe than a close-knit community at home. This isn’t because this number fears closeness with others (well maybe just a bit). It’s simply because you get bored SO easily, and love the excitement of meeting new people!

Yours is a number of embodiment. This means that your life is lived through your physical senses, and you seek out sensory pleasure wherever you go.  It’s likely that this is how you connect to the world – your experiences need to be felt and not just thought about. For this reason, you need to exercise often and if you don’t move your body enough, you’ll feel a build up of nervous energy that leaves you feeling even more restless and in need of change. Path Number 5 Shadows

Number 5, very much like the horoscope sign Gemini, has a potentially scattered energy pattern.

You can be easily distracted and tend to spend a lot of your time looking out for new experiences. This hunger for constant stimulation can mean you, Number 5, lack the discipline required to really make a go of something, whether it’s in work, relationships or any other area of life. Learning this early on will really benefit you long term, and help you to see the gifts that come with devotion.

You may also miss out on opportunities simply because other people don’t trust you with them. You can appear not to have the staying power that employers, for example, really want. And whilst they may well be right, it’s up to you to convince them to give you a chance!

Another risk of the Number 5 vibration, is that you turn to stimulants like drink, drugs, shopping, and even sex, to keep life full of the new experiences you crave. Your nature is addictive, so you must be very careful of indulging this negative side of your personality in your search from freedom. The opposite will very quickly take over, and it’s not uncommon, sadly, for fives to spiral into self-destruction. Path Number 5 Love, Relationships & Compatibility

Relationships with you, Number 5, will always be full of excitement and a whirlwind of change!

With freedom as your number 1 priority, you can only be in relationships that don’t crowd you and feel like they’re taking away your liberty.  Your ideal partner needs to offer you as much space as you need, as at the first sign of commitment, Number 5s tend to run a mile.  That’s not to say you can’t commit. You just won’t admit to it, so day-to-day living needs to be enough for any potential love match.

That said you will likely attract many lovers, due to your magnetic appeal and endlessly entertaining personality. Everyone wants an adventure, and riding off into the sunset with you is more than a possibility!
