Numbers are not concepts consciously invented by man for purposes of calculation but are spontaneous and autonomous products of the unconscious - as are other archetypical symbols.

Numerology is used as a practical method of understanding vibratory patterns and how those patterns correlate to the self to uncover your deeper nature.

We all live within frequencies and a frequency will take on a different shape, sound, smell, taste, look & number depending on how fast or slow it vibrates.

Many, at some point, have experienced number synchronicities in everyday life,

like noticing a certain number frequently or seeing the same pattern of numbers

eg. 1234 or 333 or 1111 etc - this is a form of communication.

Although the conscious may not have fully caught up yet,

your subconscious quickly recognises the language and begins to alert you

(the conscious part of you) to it.

Numerology is not an new age fad but an ancient mystic system.

We are each born with a set of unique numbers that reveal details about ourselves, the path we'll walk, what we need to learn and what we are likely to experience during this lifetime.

Through your birth date, time of birth & your name, numerology helps to bring unique personal awareness about you to you.


Lets look at some of the basics...

The Meanings of Numbers List

What is a Life Path Number?

Your life path number represents who you are and the traits that are an intrinsic part of your personality. The Life Path describes the nature of this journey through life.


How to calculate your Life Path Number

The Life Path number is established from your date of birth ~ eg: 31/10/1997

First, add the day, month and year together to arrive at a total ~ eg: 31+10+1997=2038

Next, reduce this four digit number to a single digit ~ eg: 2+0+3+8=13 (then reduce again) ~ eg:1+3=4

So the Life Path Number for this person is 4.

What is a Destiny Number?

The destiny number is the path which will lead you to the destination of your choice. It represents the cyclical energy in which you emerged on your date of birth. When your destiny number is accepted and properly understood and when its challenges have been faced and overcome, its energy becomes your greatest strength. This is the number that describes the tasks that you must achieve in this lifetime using the name that was given to you by your parents. Your name (complete birth name) symbolizes the opportunities you have at your disposal. This is sometimes referred to as your potential or destiny. Living up to attributes of this number may not be easy but it is your goal in the here and now.  It is your life's purpose, spiritual mission and your field of opportunity.  Unlike the Life Path number which reads you as you are, the Destiny number more correctly reads you as you MUST or what you can aspire to become.


How to calculate your Destiny Number

First Names

Your first name Destiny Number reveals your own personal, unique destiny uninfluenced by other factors such as your family.

This is the number that is most personal to you within your family.


Middle Names

Middle names reveal unknown, hidden elements of your destiny. These elements may include talents or potential that you didn't or don't know that you possess.


Last Name

Your last name is usually inherited from your family and this signifies the role that your heritage and family's history can play in your destiny and that which you will pass down to other generations of your family.


To unlock your Destiny number/s, take each name that is written on your birth certificate ~ eg: Mary Jane Smith

Add up the letter values using the conversion chart HERE

  • M-4 A-1 R-9 Y-7  = 4+1+9+7 = 21

  • J-1 A-1 N-5 E-5  = 1+1+5+5 = 12

  • S-1 M-4 I-9 T-2 H-8 = 1+4+9+2+8 = 24


Reduce each result into a single digit to get the Destiny number for each name

  • Mary = 2+1 = 3

  • Jane = 1+2 = 3

  • Smith = 2+4 = 6

(Here you can refer to the 'The Meanings of Numbers List' to get a general feel for each name separately)


Then add the single digit results of all of the names to arrive at a total

  • 3+3+6 = 12


Then once again reduce to a single digit to get your overall full name Destiny number

  • 1+2 = 3

Master Numbers

What is a Soul Urge Number?

It is your inner cravings, likes and dislikes, which are usually kept rather private. This influence suggests the nature that drives you in your daily life. Satisfying the demands of the Soul Urge will give you a sense of inner peace and contentment.


How to calculate your Soul Urge Number

This number is made up from the vowels (a, e, i, o and u) in your full birth name just as it is recorded on your birth certificate.

Eg. Mary Jane Smith 

      = A + A + E + I

      = 1 + 1 + 5 + 9 = 16

      = 1 + 6 = 7

These dreams lie hidden in your subconscious.

When this number has a relationship to another core number, the dream can come true.


How to calculate your Inner Dream Number

This number is made up from the constonants in your name

Eg. Mary JanSmith

      = M + R+ Y J + N + S + M + T + H

      = 4 + 9 + 7 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 4 + 2 + 8 = 41
