# NUMEROLOGY

Numerology is an ancient study of how numbers affect your life. The Hebrew mystics,
the Greek Pythagoreans, and mystical members of the early church believed that
numbers have different vibrations or qualities and that everything in the world can be
represented by numbers.
That belief is not too far from reality. There are formulas in physics that describe
even the smallest particles of matter and energy. So perhaps the ancient
numerologists were simply aware of a truth that modern science is
discovering....namely that everything that exists has energy and the different
frequencies can be represented by different numbers. Of course numerology is much
simpler than modern physics, but if you experiment with it a bit you may be surprised
at its accuracy.
In numerology, you can take your birthday and, through a simple process, reduce it
to one number that represents your life goals and challenges. Likewise, you can
convert the letters in your name to numbers and come up with different pieces of
You can even use numerology to name a child or to choose a new name for yourself
(see if the name has the vibration you would like). You can use numerology to choose
a home (see if the address has the vibration you would like to experience in your
home) and to pick dates for certain major events in your life. I hope you enjoy the
exploration!

Your birth number is the sum of all the individual digits in your birthday. It is a
number that cannot be changed and therefore will say a lot about your life path and
goals, your challenges and aspirations. For that reason it is also known as the life
path or the destiny number. It is the role our soul chose to play in this lifetime in
order to learn our lessons and make our contributions to the world.
How to calculate your Destiny Number:
1. Write down your exact date of birth, using four digits for the year.
For Example:

Suppose you were born on December 18, 1957.

In that case your birthday would be written
like this:

12 / 18 / 1957
2. Now add up all the digits in your birthday as written above:
1 + 2 + 1 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 5 + 7 = 34
3. If the sum from the previous calculation is not 1-9, 11, or 22, then add up the
digits again:
3 + 4 = 7
4. The result is your birth number!
7 is the birth number in this example!

Numerologists believe that the soul influences the parents to give it a name
consistent with its personality and the soul's plans. In order to calculate the various
numbers contained in your name, you will have to first convert the letters to
numbers.
How to convert the letters in your name to numbers:
1. Write down your exactly name as it appears on your
birth certificate, including first, middle, and last name
given at birth:
For Example:

Suppose your full birth name is:

ROSE MARY SULLIVAN

2. Use the chart below to convert each letter in the name
to a number:

R O S E M A R Y S U L L I V A N
9 6 1 5 4 1 9 7 1 3 3 3 9 4 1 5
