Over the years we have found many benefits by understanding the Personality. The information within the Personality gives us an understanding of how others may attempt to see and direct us. It provides us with insight on which aspects of our personality others may recognize and validate. This information is derived from their first surface impressions.
Have you ever had someone tell you that you would be good at something and then heard it again later from someone else? Perhaps as time went by you may have found yourself actually involved in activities which utilized the qualities they saw in you. And maybe as more time went by, you realized that you were quite capable in this area but it didn't fully resonate with what you really desired or felt motivated to do.
What we are describing is the influence the outer world has on us. Yes, the Personality number has qualities that are very much a part of us. We may be content with what this vibration has to offer for a while. However, it is the Heart's Desire vibration that assists us in manifesting our full natures. The Heart's Desire will lead us to a greater fulfillment found within our Expression vibration. As you will recall, the Expression includes both the vowels (Heart's Desire) and the consonants (Personality) in your name.
So how can we use the Personality vibration? It's simple: We incorporate it. In doing so, we can recognize that the Personality is an added dimension of our nature. Its vibration is not the full capacity that exists within us and we are capable of attainments that lay outside of its influence. By adding the Personality as a supporting influence, it will assist us rather than directing the whole show.
Let's take a look at Barbara's calculations again. In the following Numerology table we illustrate both the Heart's Desire and Personality. When adding these two final totals together you will have the Expression number.
|BARBARA ANN KELLY|
|3 + 1 + 3 = 7 Heart's Desire|
|3||1||12/3 = 3|
|22 + 1 + 8 = 31|
|3 + 1 = 4 Personality|
|7 Heart's Desire + 4 Personality = 11/2 Destiny|
Barbara has a 4 personality. So what nature lies within a 4? How would this relate to how others would see Barbara and how they may respond to her? How might they direct and interact with her? These are some of the questions you can ask. After you have answered these questions, you will be able to redirect the energy as a supportive influence.
As we answer these questions, we get a sense that others would see her as someone who could accomplish what she sets out to do. She will be perceived as determined and capable of using her tools. Others would also see her as someone who is practical and approaches things from a more conservative direction. A 4 often holds the stereotypical qualities of a farmer: Someone who will work very hard and take on much duty and responsibility while steadily working to accomplish what is vital. Would this mean others would like to give Barbara their tasks and responsibilities as well? Possibly, since they would see her as quite capable.
Again, because the four in this position represents the outer world, it may be likely that Barbara has been directed by her outside world to do things which are far more practical and limited than the full capabilities of her nature. By embracing these qualities and using them to support the Heart's Desire and Expression, she may find greater attainments possible. By using the Personality vibration as a supportive influence, determination and a step by step approach will assist the motivations her 7 Heart's Desires and her 11/2 Expression in achieving opportunities and purpose. Can you get a sense of the high level of supportive power she will have behind her dreams, desires, and opportunities?
