How intimately do you know your Expression Number?
Also known as the Destiny Number, this is one of the core numbers in your personal numerology chart, and holds the key to reaching your highest expression in the world. The Expression Number is unique – it reveals how you can best channel your talents, and how you can most effectively reach your potentials. In fact, it offers you a personal formula to follow, to become your own best possible version!
The Expression Number teaches that it’s not always what we do that matters, but how we do it. And so it is with New Year’s Resolutions!
According to studies, of the 41% of Americans who made New Year’s resolutions in 2017, only 9% had success in sticking to them. That’s less than a quarter!
So before you set any resolutions this year, first find out your Expression Number (click here for instructions) then read on to discover HOW you can actually keep them this year, using the secrets of your personal, core number!
Life Expression 1
You express yourself best through pioneering, independent and original acts. You need to make things happen and see direct results, so for you it’s imperative to make your resolutions measurable. If you can measure it, you can change it, but if you have no way to assess the change, you will quickly lose interest. So, instead of resolving to “try new things” set specific, measurable goals for yourself. This could be “join three new work committees” or “take viola lessons” or “try the cuisine of every Southeast Asian Country by March”! Whatever your plan, making it measurable will motivate you to continue.
Life Expression 2
You express yourself best by relating to others, often naturally taking the role of diplomat and peacemaker. You work best in a team or as an assistant – acting on behalf of of the greater good is where you thrive! For you, setting resolutions with a friend will really boost your chances of success. Team up with a buddy who has similar goals to you, and promise to be each others accomplice and cheerleader for the next 12 months. Anytime you are struggling, vow to connect and support. And anytime you make a breakthrough or hit a target, share the celebration!
Life Expression 3
You express yourself best in the arts, and through any kinds of creative and spontaneous acts! Your talents will come to the fore when they are free from perceived limitations, so it’s vital for you to make your resolutions fun! Reframe whatever your goal is as a creative act. So, the new diet you’re embarking upon isn’t a restriction on your favourite sweet treats, it’s a journey to discover new flavours and new recipes to excite your senses and turn the kitchen into a playground!
Life Expression 4
You express yourself best through structured, systematic acts. When life is organized, you thrive so it’s vital for you to make your resolutions with a plan! If this is the year you’ll find the love of your life, you need to figure out every step that will take you to him/her! So get out your pens, paper and calendar and get that plan of action created right now! What will you do in the first week of January? What will you in the second week? What action steps will you have completed by the time you get to March…?! Knowing you have a clear structure in place will help you to fly through every challenge you face with ease.
Life Expression 5
You express yourself best through movement and variety. You need a few different ways to express your gifts – too much of the same thing and you’re easily bored and get the urge to escape! Because of this, your resolutions need to keep you interested. Instead of setting a whole range of different goals for the year (as you may be tempted to) try setting one, and breaking it down into bite-sized chunks. So if your goal is to get fit, give yourself 5 different ways to do this. Instead of just joining the gym, become part of a running team, get a yoga DVD, start walking to work, take a spinning class AND download an app for daily motivation! This isn’t to give you more to do, it’s to give you more variety.
Life Expression 6
You express yourself best holding space for others. You are incredibly caring but don’t always offer this same level of love and appreciation to yourself, so for you, you must plan for resolution relapse! It’s impossible not to get derailed and slip up – It happens to us all, but it will hit you the hardest unless you realize that setbacks are a natural part of self-improvement. In fact, they are a vital part of the process, and every time you get back up and carry on, you’re developing resilience. It may serve you to weave into your NY resolution a kind of “get out clause”. Permission to have one day off a week, or a fortnight, as an act of self-love and compassion.
Life Expression 7
You express yourself best through searching for understanding. You need to be figuring out the answers and making sense of the world around you, so you need more than words on a page to motivate you to keep those resolutions! Its vital for you to know what its all for, and to see the end goal, so visualization is key. What will it look like when your resolution comes true? What will it feel like? Who will you have become? You could enter into meditation, pondering on these questions to see what comes up, or try making a vision board to represent your realized resolutions!
Life Expression 8
You express yourself best when you’re achieving something. You can easily sense and express the innate power you possess, and succeed at whatever you set your mind to. So it isn’t hard for you to keep your resolutions. What is hard, is keeping them for the right reasons. Before you set your NY resolutions, dig deep, and find your core reasons for making them. Do you want that new job because it will make you happier, and suit your skill set? Is it because you want more money? Is it because it’s what your family expects of you? There are no wrong reasons, but pinpointing them will give you a clearer insight into your motives and help you to gauge when you’ve achieved them. And if you can’t find a proper reason, then perhaps it’s not a resolution you should be making and you’d be much better served putting your energy into something else.
Life Expression 9
You express yourself best by serving humanity.Your innate understanding of human nature means that you thrive when offering your insight to others, helping to uplift and upgrade their experiences of life. You have an expansive perspective, which means that it will really help you to be very specific when setting resolutions for yourself. If you know you need more rest, don’t aim to “go to bed earlier”, set a resolution to be in bed at 10pm every night. If you want to improve your relationship, set out practical ways to you can do it, every single day!
Life Expression 11
You express yourself best through your spirituality. You have a strong, clear connection to the spiritual realms, so whatever you do creates a powerful ripple effect through the energetic planes of reality, affecting the people around you. Because of this, you can often be quite ungrounded so for you to keep to your resolutions, it’s vital that you reward yourself! Create benchmarks for yourself (these could be a set number of days you’ve kept your resolutions for, or a set number of things achieved) and when you reach them, give yourself a proper treat, like concert tickets, high tea, a new pair of shoes…
Life Expression 22
You express yourself best when you’re creating new worlds. You thrive when your visions are being realized, so it’s important for you to see change happening around you. Because of this, you can use your environment to seriously support your NY resolutions! When you have set your resolutions, consider the changes you need to make to your external world – the trick is to make it MORE comfortable for yourself to keep the resolution, than to stick to your old ways! So, if you have a new healthy eating plan, throw out anything that will tempt you away from it and stock up with new supplies instead. If you’re planning to spend less time on social media, delete those apps from your phone!
