Numerology is a form of divination that’s thousands of years old. It has elements of different cultures as well as philosophies mixed in, making it a pretty accurate way of looking at life as well as finding information on how to deal with others as. Your name is the first thing that comes to mind if you were to ask for advice from a numerologist. This is because numbers as well as letters all carry an energetic imprint that place a certain kind of karma in your life. In this post, we’ll take a look at how you can find out a bit about yourself by simply looking at what your name says about you from the vantage point of numerology.
According to numerology, you are supposed to take your name in its entirety and then assign different corresponding numerological values to each letter in order to come up with something called a life path number.
Life Path Numbers
A life path number is simply a value that tells you about your destiny on the planet as well as what you should work on if you want to have a full life. This number is unique, and nobody can possess more than one life path number.
In order to calculate your life path number, take your full name as it appears on your birth certificate and then add up the letters to come up with a sub number. Keep adding until you get a single number.
If you came up with a life path number of 1, you are seen as a leader and independent individual. You initiate action, and you like to be original and pioneering.
If your name gave you a life path of 2, you are adaptable, cooperative and are able to see other people’s sides to an issue.
If you are a 3, you are good at expressing yourself via verbalization and are really good at getting people to jump on your bandwagon.
If you are a 4, you are someone who values order, security, the correct way of doing things and loyalty.
If you are a 5, you are dynamic, sociable and an adventurer. You crave freedom and are always looking to chart your own way.
If you are a 6, you are a natural nurturer and protector, and you feel a strong need to be surrounded by children and family. You also are very community oriented, and strive to make sure those around you are comfortable and happy all the time.
If you are a 7, you are mysterious, thoughtful, analytical and you crave solitude. You are more likely to be a scientist, teacher, writer or a mystic.
If you are an 8, you are materialistic and care a lot about status and achieving success. You are practical and have your head firmly set in reality.
If you are a 9, you are compassionate, selfless, loving, helpful, and creative.
Numerology isn’t a perfect science; however, if used in conjunction with other forms of self-knowledge, it can open you up to a better understanding of your place in the planet in relation to other people.
