What's your number?
Don’t we all just love to hear about ourselves? I mean really…we love to know who and how we are, right? Why else would things like “Which Hogwarts House are You” keep going around and around the internet (RAVENCLAW every time!). We love reflection, at least to a certain extent, and of course....in the right light;)
Most of all we want to know what KIND of person we are. Even though we know that we are all totally different and unique, we also seem to sense that we are also the same in certain ways. We can easily identify aspects of various archetypes in ourselves and others.
The concept of archetypes is as old as humanity and it comes in many different languages: astrology, numerology, enneagram, Jung's Personality types, etc.
They all offer a different lense through which to see and know yourself better.
Personally, I love to discover the meaning behind things. I've always been attracted to things like astrology and numerology, that have the power to tell a story of ourselves and out lives. They help us know who we are, how we relate to the world and maybe even why we are here.
In Numerology, each number has its own vibration and personality. The combination of different numbers in your birthday and your name make up different aspects of yourself. In numerology, there are five defining numbers that can tell you a lot about yourself.
- Life Path number- Based on your date of birth- represents your life lessons and how you will face them.
- Expression number- Based on of numbers that correspond to the letters in your full name, it represents the strengths and weakness that come naturally to you.
- Personality number- Based on the numbers corresponding to only the consonants in your name, it represents how other people may see you.
- Heart's Desire number – Based on the numbers corresponding to just the vowels in your name, it represents the inner you and what really motivates you.
- Birth Day number- Based on the day on which you were born, it represents a hidden talent you were born with.
The most important number is your life path number. Not only is it like a blueprint for your life, representing the kinds of opportunities and challenges you will face, it is also a reflection of your inner character in general. Because it doesn’t change (as a name can) it represents an essential nature that is true to you.
So what’s your number?? It’s so easy to find out! Just a little 'ole math!
All you need is a birthday, including the year.
My birthday is March 29, 1978.
March = 3
Add up all the numbers:
3 + 2 + 9 + 1 + 9 +7 + 8 = 39
reduce to a single digit number
3 + 9 = 12
1 + 2 =3
My life path number is a 3!
If you get an 11, 22 or 33 those are special, don’t reduce it down, but read the info for both 2, 4 and 6 respectively! (sorry no 11, 22 or 33 necklaces at this point, but they will be coming soon!
