The ancient Egyptians assigned numbers to certain letters of the alphabet and used them to tell the future. The science of numbers, which is Numerology, originated with the Hebrew and Greek cultures. The Hebraic system assigns a specific number to each of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. This means that any word can be reduced to a number, which has a meaning.
Your birth name was chosen for you by the natural laws of the universe. You can decipher your Destiny number, or your path, using Numerology, and your name. The other important number in your life is your birth date. That number is your Life number which is your personality. You will have two numbers to describe your life and your destiny. Sometimes these numbers work together for you and sometimes they oppose each other. It’s up to you to find the harmony and balance.
Here’s how to find your Destiny and Life numbers.
First you need the number assignments; as follows:
1 = A, J, S
2 = B, K, T
3 = C, L, U
4 = D, M, V
5 = E, N, W
6 = F, O, X
7 = G, P, Y
8 = H, Q, Z
9 = I, R
Let’s work with your birth date first. Let’s use October 6, 1959. It is written numerically as 10/6/1959. Add up those numbers: 1+0+6+1+9+5+9=31. The 31 can be further added as 3+1=4. So, your birth date of 10/6/1959=4 is your Life number.
Now let’s do your birth name. Let’s use Tammie Smith using the chart above.
T = 2
A = 1
M = 4
M = 4
I = 9
E = 5
Those numbers 2+1+4+4+9+5=25, which can be added further 2+5=7 We will add this to the last name of Smith
S = 1
M = 4
I = 9
T = 2
H = 8
1+4+9+2+8=24, which can be added further: 2+4=6
Your first name added to your last is 7+6=13 which can be added again: 1+3=4.
Now you know that your birth name produced your Destiny number which is 4 and your Life number produced by your birth date is also four. The numbers are not always the same as in this case
When you are left with a single number, you are done adding. If you are left with 11 or 22, do not add these down further. These are special numbers
Here is what the numbers mean; good and bad in all numbers:
Number 1 = Independent, self reliant, tenacious, intolerant, conceited, stubborn.
Number 2 = Unselfish, harmonious, sociable, indifferent, weak, can’t take responsibility.
Number 3 = Freedom loving, brave, adventurous, smart, indifferent, impatient, overconfident.
Number 4 = Loyal, honest, strong will, practical, clumsy, conservative, rigid
Number 5 = Adventurous, courageous, healthy, sympathetic, irresponsible, inconsistent, unreliable.
Number 6 = Idealistic, selfless, honest, giving, faithful, responsible, weak, impractical.
Number 7 = Wise, philosophical, enduring, deep, thoughtful, inactive, antisocial.
Number 8 = Practical, business-like, decisive, controlling, unimaginative, blunt.
Number 9 = Smart, understanding, discreet, artistic, dreamy, lethargic, aimless.
Number 11 = This is the number of the genius. Also regarded as a lucky person.
Number 22 = This is a number of great power which can mean extreme successes or failures.
