Numerology can aid you in finding and defining your life purpose or destiny, if you will. It is one of the oldest metaphysical sciences and one of the least known and least understood.
The term Numerology refers to the study of numbers relating to the alphabet. The word Numerology was derived from the Latin word “numerus” and the word “logic”. It is the logic of numbers. The language it uses consists of the 26 letters that form the English alphabet. The numerical value of the letter corresponds to the numbered position of the letter in the alphabet. By using the letters and the equivalent numerical value in a name and birth date your hidden strengths and subsequent weakness are revealed. Even those you might not be aware you had.
Like Astrology, Numerology relates to the influences that this physical realm has upon you. It also reveals information that is below the surface of the name you carry in this lifetime. From the information that is locked within your birth name and your date of birth a numerologist can create a chart of a Five-fold Pathway that consists of your Life Path, your Destiny Number, your Soul Path, your Personality or Outer Persona and your Maturity Number.
In modern Numerology we use these pathways to identify the soul's lesson and reason for being on this earthly plane in this present incarnation and on this leg of spiritual evolution. Two ancient types of Numerology account for what we now know as modern Numerology. These early systems are the Chaldean and the Pythagorean Numerology which most western Numerologists use.
So how does the birth name and the birth date influence your physical and spiritual journey? The birth name as well as the birth date were chosen by your higher-spirit (or higher-self) before incarnating into this physical realm. Your parents are part of your soul group which means you’ve been traveling together for years uncountable. A spiritual contract between those in your soul group guarantees that everyone will serve a specific influence so that you may find opportunities for mastering the lessons you need to learn as an incarnated spirit.
Your name is an energetic and creative force. The letters and their numerical value relate to your strengths and or, weaknesses. Numerology can reveal past life experiences and the karma and debt that you are to pay and master in this incarnation. This is reflected in Karmic Debt Numbers, such as 14/5, 16/7; and in Karmic Lesson Numbers (those that are missing from your birth name and indicate the lessons you are to learn this time around).
The name you have picked for yourself before you came into this life carries the information for the best direction to take and hints to the major accomplishments that you might reach in this lifetime. Fulfilling the potential of the energy within your name is part of the spiritual evolution towards the central essence, or God.
While your birth name reveals the events that will necessarily be part of your destiny, it can also render your heart’s desire, the urges of your soul, and the positive and negative attributes of your personality. You can change your name, changing its energy to suit your spirit’s purpose. The one thing that can’t be changed is your Life-path which is defined by your birth date. But the study of Numerology will allow you to work with your Life-path number, to identify peak times in your life when major events can be accomplished.
The Fifth Pathway—the Maturity Number—is the fulfillment of your destiny number and your Life-path number, your true essence. This energy presence does not come into effect until you reach the age of 45 when it becomes a major influence upon the Life-path for the journey ahead.
This is the Five-Fold Path that’s typically included a numerological charting, and this is barely breaking the surface of the subject. Too complicated? Fear not. We’ll be discussing the different aspects of Numerology so that you may familiarize yourself with the topic.
