There are five core-numbered ways (or vibrational paths) revealed in Numerology, and the soul-number is by far one of the most important ones. But before we delve into the soul-number, we need to understand that the soul is not the higher self or the divine spark. It is the accumulation of all the experiences it has learned from, and the personalities it has interacted with throughout the ages. Those who form our intimate circle are incarnated souls we’ve known from past lives. Through mutual agreement we remain in each other’s lives until our souls evolve out of the present incarnation.
Upon reincarnation, your soul—the unique spiritual-being that you are—determined what experiences to learn from. In this historical era, along with the other eight-billion souls who share this planet at this particular time, we find ourselves navigating the powerful energy corresponding to the first stages of the age of Aquarius.
The birth name is our compass, guiding our body—the vehicle that carries us—through the experiences designed for our unique spiritual growth. The soul-number pathway is made up of the formulation of the vowels of the birth name. This is a separate formulation of the letter's numerical values: A, I, E, O, U, and the Y. Adding the numbered-values of the vowels found in your whole birth name will reveal your soul’s vibrational number.
The soul-number basically reveals the mission-statement of the soul. And, as stated earlier, by “soul” I mean the ongoing inner part of the human-being that holds the memories of the individual’s current life as well as those from the previous incarnation which are locked within the soul’s vibration. It’s important to remember that the present moment is merely another segment (or leg) of your spirit’s journey.
The soul seeks evolution by incarnating into the physical body in this material universe. As spiritual-beings having a physical experience we are bound to grow. We might not be conscious of the memories of our past-lives, but each accumulated experience while in physical form aids in our spiritual evolution.
The personality-number imbeds the soul-number, while the expressive nature of the soul-number shapes the developing personality. The personality-number, however, only reflects our public image, and oftentimes does not fully reflect the true nature of the spiritual-being we truly are. This is where finding the soul-number comes in handy.
The soul-number vibration is considered to be the heart of the matter, the hidden desire of the spiritual-being. It’s one of the most important numbers to be analyzed during a numerology charting as it can aid in our advancement in this current incarnation. Many of us are lured by the idea of expediting our spiritual evolution which is why we find ourselves attending seminars, lectures, seeking knowledge that will help us reach certain level of spirituality. Finding inner peace and purpose is what life is all about. Although there’s nothing wrong with seeking comfort in our physical existence, life is not about material advancement but spiritual advancement as individuals and members of the human race.
Always remember—the name you carry is your cosmic code. Within the vibrational energy of each pronounced letter is the DNA segment of your universal coding, and the vowels of your birth name reveal the soul-number vibration—your heart’s pure desires. Soul-number comparisons are also very reliable in showing the compatibility of partners, friends, and lovers.
