Numerology is the study of numbers, but a psychic reading of sorts can be done using numerology. Just like in astrology, a personal numerology reading is a breakdown of an individual’s personal numbers or life path number, which are derived from ones birth-date and or name. From these numbers one can receive insight as to what life experiences or themes will be challenging, and repetitive. These numbers also give insights as to what natural abilities a person may have as well. Some believe that a soul chooses when to be born and therefore, one could derive a life path number representing the life’s purpose or journey for the soul.The life path number (or soul number) is derived by taking one’s entire birth-date -month ,day,and year and adding its sum. Then from that sum, reducing it to a single number.
For example: A birth-date of July 5th 1990 would be derived as follows
7+5+ 1+9+9+0=31 The 31 then becomes 3+1 =4 and 4 would represent the life number. The same procedure can be done for one’s name. Each letter has a number that corresponds with it.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
A B C D E F G H I
J K L M N O P Q R
S T U V W X Y Z
For example:Joe Smith would be
1+6+5(Joe) + 1+4+9+2+8(Smith)= 12(Joe)+24(Smith)
9 would be Joe Smith’s personality number.This number would give insights into Joe’s personality.Numbers are considered to have particular energy traits or vibrational patterns assigned to them.
The metaphysical traits are as follows:
1-Individuality, will, ego
3-Creativity, self expression
5-Freedom, change, free will
The life number and personality number would then be looked at extensively as it pertained to the individual. By looking at the number an individual can see insights as to what conflicts, challenges, and abilities one would have in life or within his or her personality as it pertained to the number.
