Numerology Lesson One - The Basics of Numerology

Numerology Lesson One - The Basics of Numerology

In this first numerology lesson you'll gain a basic understanding of what each number embraces within its vibration. As we cover the different parts of an individual numerology chart, you will be able to apply the concepts a given number represents. Let's begin:
All numbers have three possible expressions:
Balanced Balanced
Under-balanced Under-balanced
Over-balanced Over-balanced

When we are out of balance, we may experience the polarities within the number (the under-balance or over-balance qualities). This occurs until we learn how to balance the qualities of the number within ourselves. The definitions we give below are the balanced expressions. Use your intuition to imagine what qualities the number would take on if it were under-balanced or over-balanced. Later on in the course, we'll present a chart of the under-balanced and over-balanced aspects of each number.
The Number Chart

The Number 1:

There is a beginning to every story. Therefore, within the number one we have many qualities that embrace LEADERSHIP and courage such as:
independence independence
adventure adventure
initiative initiative
originality originality
determination determination
individuality individuality
direction direction
The Number 2:

Then light was shined upon the subject. The vibration of two is the 'light bearer'. It's core intention is balance and PEACEMAKING, creating friendship wherever it goes. It holds such qualities as:
diplomacy diplomacy

The Number 6:

Without others to love, serve, and cherish all is without purpose. Therefore, the six vibration brings with it the RESPONSIBILITY to restore humanity and remind all of us of the treasures within life. As six energy moves about in the world it embraces qualities such as:
beauty beauty
creativity creativity
domesticity domesticity
healing healing
morality morality
passion passion
harmony harmony
trust trust
serving serving
The Number 7:

Now that I have learned how to give of myself, who and what am I really? I must have INDIVIDUALITY. Therefore, the quest for wisdom and knowledge begins. Eager to make sense of it all, the qualities of the seven are
analysis analysis
research research
calculation calculation
understanding understanding
perfection perfection
the unseen the unseen
intuition intuition
investigation investigation
reason reason
vision vision
solitude solitude
The Number 8:

Now that I have discovered Heaven, how do I bring it to earth? There is power behind MANIFESTATION and I want to do what it takes to attain what I want. The eight becomes very busy managing and supervising with its sense of judgment. Behind the vibration of the eight is:
power power
authority authority
capability capability
organization organization
efficiency efficiency
skill skill
hard work hard work
The Number 9:

Having universal wisdom, I embrace the principles of forgiveness and COMPASSION. The nine holds the vibration of universal love. It teaches us how to accept each other. By having such a vast overview, the nine becomes a bridge to many qualities like:
creativity creativity
imagination imagination
benevolence benevolence
impersonality impersonality
intuition intuition
philanthropy philanthropy
emotion emotion
generosity generosity
devotion devotion
dedication dedication
The Number 11:

Let us create ILLUMINATION of all that is before us. There is a path beyond what we know today. The eleven lives in two worlds. On practical days, it vibrates with the two. On days that it senses it's full nature, it is of an energy that translates a world beyond. Therefore, the eleven energy is:
aware aware
six-sensed six-sensed
creative creative
discerning discerning
dreamy dreamy
inspiring inspiring
intense intense
The Number 22:

Let us build upon a foundation of precision and balance and we will have a master plan. On a practical day, the twenty-two becomes the four. When it senses its full capacity as a MASTER BUILDER, it can achieve what is barely imaginable. The qualities the twenty-two embraces are:
mastery of vast co-creative projects mastery of vast co-creative projects
great achievement great achievement
ingenuity ingenuity
high energy high energy
innovation innovation
idealism idealism

As you become familiar with the principles behind the numbers, you can add to the list. Remember that each vibration can be expressed as balanced, under-balanced, or over-balanced. Here is one example for the three vibration:
Balanced = Expressive Balanced = Expressive
Under-balanced = Shy Under-balanced = Shy
Over Balanced = Boastful Over Balanced = Boastful

Home Play

Grab a dictionary, and thesaurus if you have one, and add some additional words that make sense to you for each of the numbers. There's no right or wrong here. Just enjoy playing with some possibilities.

Take some guesses about how each of the numbers might be expressed as under-balanced and over-balanced. Remember that the words above (associated with each number) are some of the balanced expressions.

Review each of the numbers and take a guess at which one you think most describes you.

Important Note: Please keep your 'home play' for each lesson. Each lesson will build on the next and we will be referring back to previous learning exercises in this workshop.

Next Numerology Lesson

In Numerology Lesson Two we will feature The Alphabet in Relationship to Numbers. Each letter of the alphabet and how each letter from A-Z has an equivalent number of one through nine. Congratulations. You're on the way to learning Numerology and being able to more deeply understand some of life's mysteries--including yourself!

Lesson Two - The Alphabet in Relationship to Numbers

Lesson Two - The Alphabet in Relationship to Numbers

A Numerologist sees numbers as vibrational expressions. Numbers are also associated with letters. Both numbers and letters describe certain vibrational patterns. These patterns are forces that manifest within a person's life and their environment.

By examining a persons name and birth date an interpretation can be made. The individual's "snowflake pattern" exists in relationship to the ever-present vibrations or expressions of the universe. These constant expressions are wave like cycles and come full circle in a sequence of nine degrees. Like a lotus blossom illustrates, the unfoldment of human consciousness is accomplished within this sequence.

Each letter is 'personified' (Definition: A rhetorical figure of speech in which inanimate objects or abstractions are endowed with human qualities) to help you better imagine the characteristics of each letter.

The letters of the alphabet correspond to the nine primary numbers as follows:

9 IR

A (1)

This letter holds the vibration of a leader and is the most aggressive and self-starting of the alphabet. 'A' is very adventurous and pioneering and has much independence. It is very self-reliant. Liking to initiate, they often must learn through experience. 'A' is also a catalyst activating other vibrations around them. They have to learn how to be less self-absorbed sometimes and are often opinionated and stubborn until they learn how to channel their vibration. They love change and adventure.

B (2)

This vibration is a sensitive helper and finds it's motivation through others. It seeks balance and is very good in areas calling for diplomacy, mediation, and improvement. This vibration responds well to appreciation and can be quite kind, gentle, and lovable unless it is lacking in confidence and self-appreciation. 'B' works best with others as a team member and can contribute much once it feels connected.

C (3)

Within the 'C' is a spontaneous creator. Anxious to express its inspiration and originality, work and ideas flow. Sociable and friendly, a 'C' acknowledges joy as its greatest motivator. The round shape of the 'C' guarantees that what it gives out usually comes back to it! It is also quite sensitive and intuitive. The arts in many forms are embraced within the 'C'. In an unbalanced state, the 'C' can scatter its energies or have difficulty manifesting what it wants.

D (4)

This vibration is a steady builder who holds onto responsibility as its teacher. It works long and hard and brings practicality, patience, and orthodox values. Sometimes the 'D' finds it hard to express itself and finds physical and tactile approaches to help it channel its energy. The 'D' is honest, true, and constant. Being in nature really helps a 'D' to access its qualities in a positive way. In addition, a 'D' is here to learn much about control and how to give acknowledgment to the self.

E (5)

This vibration is quite versatile and inspirational. Holding onto freedom, it embraces travel, movement, and flexibility. It is straightforward and direct. It is usually interested in spiritual matters. It likes to learn and enjoys words, whether in written context or in speaking. It holds within it a lot of energy and vitality. With the amount of energy that moves through an 'E', it usually remains fairly calm. Too many 'E's' can bring on impulsiveness and restlessness.

F (6)

Within the 'F' is a need to serve humanity and an appreciation of that which is esthetic. There is a complexity to this vibration. It needs to be with others as it feels that its destiny is found in home and relationship. It holds values and principles very dear but it has a hard time with criticism. By expressing cheerfulness and channeling its energies in creative directions, the 'F' vibration finds happiness.

G (7)

This is the vibration of the reserved thinker. Often misunderstood because of not speaking up, the 'G' is constantly within engaged in introspective thought. They have much patience and ability to assimilate knowledge. They must learn to build confidence, and through sheer will and determination, they usually gain much wisdom throughout life. Having a dreamy nature and much imagination, they often develop psychic abilities. Their determination helps them overcome obstacles. To be harmonious they need to be aware of the mental, spiritual, and physical aspects of life. Business partnerships are usually a difficult experience for the 'G'.

H (8)

With an extreme awareness of the material world, this vibration often becomes quite successful in the areas of business and finance. It works methodically and has keen perceptions. It likes to advance itself and will work hard to achieve what it desires. Gifted with executive qualities, it usually finds itself in management roles. If it becomes confused by it's sense of power, it will have many ups and down and can experience difficulty in making reforms or changes. Most often it is aware of spiritual needs and embraces these in its ability to manifest what it values and needs.

I (9)

Within in the 'I' you will find much sensitivity, intuition, and intensity with a strong focus on emotion. The 'I' wishes to contribute to humanity but often becomes distracted by what is reflected in its environment and life's dramas. It needs to have time alone to meditate and find its center. It may often sacrifice to give to others as it has a deep understanding of other's needs. It must learn self-compassion so that it is able to truly give what it so deeply desires. It also possesses much creative and artistic energy. Nature is a godsend for it helps the 'I' to stay somewhat balanced.

J (10/1)

This vibration is also a leader but tends to be a little more cautious than the 'A'. It leads in an original and innovative way but its broad perspective may make getting started a little bit more difficult. It prefers action but often indecision is at the base of its ideas. It needs a little more support than the 'A.' It is optimistic and recovers well when difficulties arise. It has a good mind and is ambitious in a quiet way.

K (11/2)

The 'K' holds a master vibrational expression in that it has a high potential for achievement and desires to inspire intuitively. It is very open to spiritual awareness and is an old-soul vibration that holds much wisdom. The 'K' expression often does not have many close friends. It doesn't lack the ability to create friendships. Instead, it expresses those energies primarily through teaching and leading many, as it holds within it much light. When 'K' is out of harmony it often attracts challenging situations. It is good at detail and is very creative. It dislikes second best. It appreciates affection and is capable of expressing much affection as well.

L (12/3)

This vibration holds a magnetic attraction. It is a loving expressive vibration that enjoys the public and is the most mental of the threes. Its job is to express the joy of living and contribute of its originality. It has abilities to reason which facilitate its abilities to create and contribute in words and ideas. It is also sensitive and can be a bit critical when confronted.

M (13/4)

A solid and hard working vibration is the foundation of the 'M.' There is a love of home and a protective nature. With practical approaches and organization, the 'M' desires to serve. This vibration is often hard to get to know as it sometimes limits its viewpoint and has a fear to expand its potential. It has intuition but often sees it as instinct. Its nature can assist in managing material and practical affairs as well as managing others.

N (14/5)

The 'N' loves to encounter change and movement. Therefore, it is always seeking excitement and variety. It can have interests in many areas and works extremely well with others. It knows how to motivate others to achieve ideas and is progressive in its thinking. It is a little more rational than the other five vibrations as it enjoys its mental abilities. It has a certain personal philosophy that it resonates with and is open to sharing its analysis. Often it receives some sort of public recognition and/or its purpose has to do with the public.

O (15/6)

The 'O' holds within it a desire for responsibility and can take on more than its own share at times. It learns much about what it means to be of service and what it is like to give more than its share. It is usually traditional and conservative and finds its freedom through some form of creative appreciation (which may extend into its domestic surroundings). It retains what it gains as its disciplined nature knows what it takes to get what it wants. It attracts assistance and help along the way, as it learns to balance its nature. It values the spiritual in its daily life.

P (16/7)

It is often difficult to know what the 'P' holds within its thoughts as it often is without expression. It likes to be alone to contemplate and has to learn how to channel its feelings. It is a thinker vibration and is capable of deep analysis and introspection. It often lacks determination and willpower to carry through its thoughts. With all this in mind, it does hold within it vast intuitive qualities and often possesses vision and an understanding of the unseen.

Q (17/8)

The 'Q' is a vibration that is distinct and often a little eccentric. It enjoys its material achievements and will extend its executive leadership qualities to attain what it desires. It usually has a cheerful disposition and much energy. This vibration often attracts money and success even though sometimes it has lessons around power. It is usually quite generous but sometimes finds relationships unsteady.

R (18/9)

The foundation of the 'R' is selflessness. It is here to assist humanity and is capable of great understanding and tolerance. It has a strong potential to assist others, as it understands how to motivate and inspire. It can be taken advantage of until it learns self-value and compassion. It has much emotion running through it and a deep need to contribute. Often it expresses as a teacher, writer, artist, or poet with a great potential to lead others. There is a certain nervous energy running through this vibration which can cause some delays or confusion. It is a self-starter.

S (19/1)

This vibration is the more emotional of the leader vibrations. It has spiritual roots that are often expressed in unorthodox ways. It often follows a spiritual path. It can lead but often prefers to do it indirectly. It holds within it individuality and ambition but often feels alone. Independent and courageous, it will set an example to others of subtle ways to express emotion, which can create cooperation (which in turn is a demonstration of its power).

T (20/2)

This vibration enjoys peace and will often prefer to follow rather than take the lead if it feels that it would promote ease. It does expect much from others but is usually quite patient and helpful. It desires relationship and enjoys closeness within its family. It often stays close to home, thrives from affection, and is quite gentle most of the time. It is a wonderful teacher desiring to help.

U (21/3)

The 'U' is a receptive channel. It takes in and flows out and often scatters its energies. Its challenge is to stay balanced. It is happiest when it feels supported. It is the more subtle of the three vibrations but holds within much creative and artistic ability which may take many different forms during a lifetime. Often it doesn't fully know what it possesses and must channel its creative energy through words, music, and/or voice to gain a sense of self. It can inspire others but is the more conservative of the three vibrations.

V (22/4)

Holding within it much tension, the 'V' is capable of vast accomplishments. It has a global yet practical view that can envision ideas and manifest them into material form. This vibration has to push out into the world, often by moving from their hometown. It attracts great achievement and monumental success. They inspire others in dynamic ways and are one of the most powerful vibrations within the alphabet.

W (23/5)

The 'W' has the power of persuasion and holds excellent verbal abilities. Often it finds itself in sales of some form, accompanied by movement and travel. It enjoys love and relationship and is the more levelheaded of the five vibrations. Although it enjoys confronting any and all experiences, it will not risk as much as some of the other fives. It can vacillate and gets confused sometimes, because it would rather experience than express. It usually enjoys plants and the healing arts and has a sense of the order within life.

X (24/6)

This vibration is one to take on many responsibilities and often feels much emotion because of this. It cares, protects, and may even sacrifice itself. It holds within it sensuality which helps it attract attention. It may enjoy nice clothing or beautiful things, which can lead it to believe it is externally oriented. Actually, it wants simplicity and a settled lifestyle. It can attract worldly success as it is artistically talented and holds within it magnetic energy.

Y (25/7)

This vibration must learn to trust its intuition and psychic abilities. It has profound insights into higher matters and feels very deeply. It works best alone so it often feels lonely. It can be uncertain and vacillating. Meditation can help it get a sense of its connection to 'all-that-is' which can ease its loneliness. Its mission is to uncover the mysterious, the hidden, and bring about understanding. It often has a hard time committing itself to one thing, as it often senses before it more than one direction.

Z (26/8)

This vibration is extremely dynamic and is capable of great achievements. The material world and those of distinction call to it. It holds within both self-confidence and willpower. It has the qualities of an executive nature and can handle itself well in an emotional crisis. Sometimes it may magnify or exaggerate, as it loves excess in food, luxury, and whatever it can indulge in.

Now let's apply what we've learned to your first name. Each of the letters in your name has a vibration as listed in the information above. Let's use the name of 'Kirk' as an example:

K 11/2
I 9
R 18/9
K 11/2

Make sure to write out your name just like the table above. Take some time to ponder the different vibrational frequencies that make up your first name.

Now lets 'digit down' each of the individual numbers that are associated with each letter in your name. Keep adding until you get one digit. For the name 'Kirk' it would be:

K 11/2 1 + 1 = 2
I 9 9 (only 1 digit) 9
R 18/9 1 + 8 = 9
K 11/2 1 + 1 = 2

Imagine how each of the letters in your first name blend to form one synergistic vibration. Sometimes you will have letters that seem to be opposites. Actually, they simply make up different parts of one whole. A diamond is one precious stone but its many facets display a number of different colors. One ray of white light can be refracted into many colors.

Now add the digited down number for your name. Then digit that number down to one digit. Here's how it works for the name 'Kirk':

= 22
2 + 2
= 4
The name Kirk is a 22/4

The name Kirk is a 22/4

Now go to Lesson One and look up both 22 and 4 (not the 'D & V' in this lesson) and see what the vibration of 'Kirk' is. You'll see that 22/4 is a 'master number' and that we can interpret its vibration as 22 (without being digited down). It can be difficult for a master vibration to always remain at such an intense vibrational level, therefore it can also revert to a 4. Let's digit it down one more (2 + 2 = 4) to 4. So, since a 22/4 is a master number, it can express as both a 22 and a 4. (We'll talk more about master numbers in your upcoming lessons.)

In the same way, digit down the numbers in your name and look up the result in Lesson One.

Calculate some more names (including your last and middle names if you wish) and play with their meanings. (You can call this last exercise 'extra credit.')

Numerology Lesson Three - The Core Concept of Numerology

Numerology Lesson Three - The Core Concept of Numerology

We like to think of our physical existence as a manifestation of our individual soul. Within the manifestation of our soul, there is a desire to learn, grow, create, and experience life within a body. This body has an individual pattern--a soul vibration--that is unique unto itself. When our individual vibration is born into the physical world, it contains within it a seed. This seed has a natural instinct along with characteristics. These qualities are what the individual pattern has brought with it. It also has within it a purpose!

Let's take a look at this seed. It was planted at birth and there is a grand intention within. The expression of this life is a continuation of its 'spiraling' journey. Experiences of expansion, connection, and awareness of its divine nature perpetuate the spiraling motion. It relies on its innate knowledge to assist it in growth, and its greatest hearts desires, to fuel it as it moves towards its purpose. As its roots grow, it matures by knowing its place in co-creation.

In previous lessons, we defined Numerology as a tool to interpret the physical manifestation of vibration. We can apply this tool to gain an understanding of an individual's unique pattern. Within us, we have five distinctive parts that wish to be synthesized and brought into balance. Let us take a moment to examine each aspect to understand what part of our nature each part expresses.

Life Path:
The Life is found in your Birthday. This vibration is at the heart of your being during this life. It tells you what you are really like. Its qualities want to be utilized and acknowledged. It is what is innate and natural for you. It is the vibration in which your soul has chosen to ground its essence. Therefore opportunities, experiences, and lessons that you attract this life will ask for you to draw on the energies present in your Life Path. By embracing these resources you will then be able to synthesize your other core parts. Note: Life Path is also called the 'Birth Force' in some Numerology texts.

Birth Day:
Your specific day of birth may direct you to added understanding of what you are here to do. For example, in the Birth Date of July 11th, 1956, the Birth Day is 11. I like to think of it as 'added spice' as it often combines with other energies to help them develop! Sometimes you will also find talents connected to this vibration since your Birth Day is a component of your Life Path (derived from your entire Birth Date).

The name you were given at birth tells a wonderful story. Your name is what you must be this life. It is a 'Divine Promise' of opportunity. When embracing the qualities of this vibration, you find that your soul adds to its experiences, knowledge, and growth. In the Expression number, you will find evidence of your purpose. As you synthesize this core part, you will also discover a deeper connection to your other parts. Sometimes natural abilities are also found within a person's Expression number. Note: Expression is also called 'Destiny' in some Numerology texts.

Heart's Desire:
This vibration comes from the vowels in your name. The vowels are said to be very sacred and in some languages were so respected they were never written! The Heart's Desire provides insight into your soul's deepest urges and values (what you find important, just, fair, etc.) This is not to be taken lightly for it is a very wise part of you. It is the part that has the deepest feelings and sheds light on what you most desire. You will find your most essential motivations here. Your Heart's Desire is a major part of your core since it beautifies and rounds out your character. This part of you also wishes to harmonize with your other core vibrations so that you may express fully all that you are. I feel the Heart's Desire is a key that will open doors for your other key parts to fully express. Note: Heart's Desire is also called 'Soul Urge' in some Numerology texts.

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. 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.


In Numerology these are the five major vibrations that make up your core nature:
Life Path Life Path
Birth Day Birth Day
Expression Expression
Heart’s Desire Heart's Desire
Personality Personality  

You are a blending of these vibrations. Sometimes one core part may stand out more than others. Often one part stays in the background as you recognize, express, and experience the other parts. Eventual synchronization and blending of all parts into a balanced, fully functioning, and expressive self is the ultimate experience of this lifetime.

In the next few numerology lessons we will explore each core aspect fully. We'll be showing you how to specifically calculate each of these five core vibrations. There are also other modifiers that can impact these vibrations and we will also learn more about them in future lessons. These individual parts can blend with ease or create disharmony (which throws them out of balance). Whatever the case may be, rest assured it is all part of your co-created master plan! The plan is within your soul and expresses your desire to experience more of life!

Numerology Home Play

In this numerology lesson we want to give you some exercises so that you can become comfortable playing with words and finding their numerical values. During this exercise, you will review how to:
  • Find the numerical values for each letter of a specific word.
  • Add those numbers together.
  • If necessary, add those numbers together until you have one digit ('digit down'). (Remember that the numbers 11 and 22 are master vibrations and can stand on their own.)
To do this exercise you will need to refer back to both numerology Lesson One and Lesson Two to find the meanings of each vibration. Use Lesson One for the totals of a given word and Lesson Two for the vibration of each individual letter that makes up the word you are studying. Make sure to check out both the total and the individual letters.

Let's start your exercise by using the name of Barbara as an example:

B 2
A 1
R 9
B 2
A 1
R 9
A 1
Total 25
Digit Down 2 + 5 = 7

In future numerology lessons you'll be learning the different parts that vowels and consonants play in Numerology. At this stage, we'll give you the 'hint' that the vowels are what makes up a person's Heart's Desire and the consonants are used to determine a person's Personality (how they are viewed by others). So, begin to think:

Vowels = Heart's Desire Vowels = Heart's Desire
Consonants = Personality Consonants = Personality
Total = Expression Total = Expression 

We'll be showing you how to calculate the Heart's Desire, Personality, and Expression numbers in an upcoming lesson. Back to the name 'Barbara':

Her vowels are all 'A's' which tell us that she is very self-reliant and capable of leading. She enjoys change and also has a pioneering spirit. This would mean that she is motivated to do things in a new way as well as bring into awareness new or innovative ways of thinking. Sometimes with this much 'A energy', she could become a little stubborn at times.

'B' and 'R'. The 'B' brings in the qualities of a helper and someone who would desire to be in connection with others. It adds some gentleness to her nature. The 'R' helps her balance out the three 'A's' by giving her a greater sense of humanity, which would help her from becoming to self-absorbed. The 'R' is also good at teaching and like the '7' total, it seeks universal wisdom.

When you refer back to Numerology Lesson One, you will see that the total of '7' tells us that within the name 'Barbara' we have an individual that seeks wisdom and knowledge. Her first name shows us that she has a deep desire to learn and also has abilities that would assist her in being a great teacher. She probably uses her senses to gain deeper knowledge into the unseen.

Can you start to get a sense of how the individual energies within the name blend to form a single vibration? Notice how they relate to each other and draw out the qualities of each other. Part of learning Numerology is allowing your intuition to begin to synthesize the vibrations and seeing how they could possibly come together.
Your Turn:
  1. Right now grab some paper and something to write with. We'll wait... Great.
  2. Now take a few minutes and play with the name Barbara a little more. See what other understandings you can come up with.
  3. Make a list of ten words that are nouns (any person, place, or thing).
  4. Now start with the first word on your list. Look at the vowels within that word and see if it doesn't give you some insight into the heart of its nature.
  5. Next look at the consonants and see how that item's personality is perceived by the external world.
  6. Total the word down to one digit and look up at its destiny.
  7. Continue by doing steps 4 - 6 with each word on your list.
Here are some more examples that you may find interesting:
Book: 2662 = 16/7 which is a number that holds within it knowledge! 
At the heart of a book are the 'O' vowels which express a desire to take on responsibility.
It wants to be of service and likes to give back. It expresses for humanity! 
It can take many forms from practical to esthetic as long as it serves!

Car: 319 = 13/4 which is a vibration that is hard working, constructive and practical. 
At the heart of the word car is the vowel of 'A' which is aggressive and adventurous and has much independence! 
It is a catalyst activating other vibrations around it. Sometimes they are stubborn! 
They love change!
Telephone: = 25357655 = 46/1 is a vibration that is innovative and original. 
It wants to initiate an exchange. 
At its heart it has three 'E's' and one 'O'. 
With that much 'E' you can tell that it travels!
It seeks freedom but the 'O' shows that it has a sense of family, community, and seeks to serve as well.
By doing this exercise you can gain a sense of how vibrations blend. 
After we spend time discussing the core vibrations in more depth, we will then practice 
blending those vibrations.
Have fun!

Numerology Lesson Four - The Life Path

Numerology Lesson Four - The Life Path

Some Numerology systems call this part of your nature the Birth Force or Birth Path. No matter what you call it, its meaning remains the same. It is what you will always have on hand. Your Life Path is one of your greatest assets. You can always count on this part of your nature to be there for you.
The Life Path and the Expression work hand in hand. Dr. Juno Jordan, one of our favorite Numerologists, used an analogy from business to contrast the Life path (or Birth Force) and Expression (or Destiny) numbers. She said, "The Birth Force represents the stock on hand and the Destiny the business to be established." We like that analogy because it can help you to understand how important your Life Path is. When we surrender to our nature and use our tools, we can progress and begin to allow our purpose to unfold.

Also, we often find that the Life Path qualities often appear as opportunities, challenges, and lessons. We are learning how to embrace the qualities of the Life path in a balanced way.
Let's begin by calculating the Life Path for the following Birthday:

November 26th 1953
11 is 11/2 2 + 6 = 8 1 + 9 + 5 + 3 = 18
11/2 (Master Number) 8 (already one digit) 1 + 8 = 9
11/2 + 8 + 9 = 28
2 + 8 = 10
1 + 0 = 1

In the example above, we have a 1 for the Life Path (a 1 'seed' to use our previous metaphor). The person with the Birthday above can gain insight regarding the 1 vibration (qualities of the 'seed') and know that they have and can further develop those abilities. Let's do a quick review of the number 1.
We can be assured that this person has a strong will. They are someone capable of leading and taking initiative. The person is probably fairly independent and may even work in a field that requires originality and self-direction.

Remember that all vibrations can be expressed as 'balanced', 'under-balanced', and 'over-balanced'. If the person in the example above is expressing their 1 in a balanced way, they will use their leadership and pioneering spirit. Some other qualities that may be active are the capabilities to generate creative thought, inventive ideas, determination, a sense of humor, inspiration, and clear thinking.

Now, if there are other aspects within the core that are at odds with the 1 vibration, we may find the 1 will express itself in an under-balanced or over-balanced state. If this person has conflict in accessing their innate tools, they may appear to lack confidence, show signs of insecurity, become dependent on others, or become passive (under-balanced). If they feel threatened or have difficulty in channeling this vibration, then they might become bossy, opinionated, or dominating (over-balanced).

When working with an individual, the job of a Numerologist is to guide. When working with a person's full chart--which you will be able to do after completing this entire course--you will easily be able to see where conflicts between different numbers could occur. Your job is to assist in the blending of these vibrations in such a way as to empower the person. There will always be a reason why conflicting numbers are present in a persons life. Most likely it is to strengthen or develop the person in some way.

Try to find the intention behind the creation of a potentially conflicted combination of numbers. Ask yourself, What positive attainment could come out of this combination?" By doing so, you will then be on a useful track! Don't spend a lot of time pointing out the 'negative' aspects. Highlight the possibilities that they may exist.

A. Discover the Life Path for some people you know:
  1. Grab a pencil and some paper (some people use a calculator but we recommend you do the simple arithmetic by hand so that you can quickly calculate the Life Path when you don't have a calculator).
  2. Write down the full birth dates of at least five people who you know.
  3. Pick the first person's birth date.
  4. Calculate their Life Path number.
  5. Recheck the calculation (it's always important to recheck your first calculation!).
  6. Look up that person's specific Life Path number in the chart in Numerology Lesson One.
  7. Take a minute to think of that person in light of their Life Path.
  8. Repeat the above process with all of the names on your list.
  9. As other people come to mind, calculate their Life path numbers as well (if you have the birth dates of your parents and/or siblings, their Life Path numbers can provide lots of interesting information regarding your family).
B. Analyze the names of some well-known people such as:
  • John Franklin Delano Roosevelt: January 30th l882

    Roosevelt, Franklin Delano, 1882-1945. The 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945). Governor of New York (1929-1932), he ran for President with the promise of a New Deal for the American people. His administration was marked by relief programs, measures to increase employment and assist industrial and agricultural recovery from the Depression, and World War II. He was the only U.S. President to be reelected three times (1936, 1940, and 1944). He died in office.
  • Michael Luther King: January 15, l929

    King, Martin Luther, Jr. (Note that we don't use the 'Jr.' to calculate his Birth Force.) 1929-1968. American cleric whose eloquence and commitment to nonviolent tactics formed the foundation of the civil rights movement of the 1950's and 1960's. Among the many peaceful demonstrations he led was the 1963 March on Washington, at which he delivered his "I have a dream" speech. He won the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize, four years before he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee.
  • Richard Milhous Nixon: January 9, l913

    Nixon, Richard Milhous 1913-1994. The 37th President of the United States (1969-1974). Vice President (1953-1961) under Dwight D. Eisenhower, he lost the 1960 presidential election to John F. Kennedy. Elected President in 1968, he visited China (1972) and established détente with the USSR. Although he increased U.S. military involvement in Southeast Asia, he was also responsible for the eventual withdrawal of U.S. troops. When Congress recommended three articles of impeachment for Nixon's involvement in the Watergate scandal, he resigned from office (August 9, 1974).

Numerology Lesson Five - The Birth Day

In Numerology Lesson Four we discussed the Life Path and the knowledge found within it. You learned how to find your individual Life Path vibration by adding up the numbers in your full birth date. In this lesson we will examine the individual Birth Day (just the day and not the month or year of your birth) in further detail and discuss the information found within it.

Different Numerologists agree that the actual day of birth is a significant piece within the whole picture. They also agree that the day of birth sheds light on important lessons to be learned. By calculating the day of birth, you will be able to more clearly understand the nature of these lessons and how they relate to the abilities you brought into this life. As you have learned in this course, these energies can be expressed in balanced, over-balanced, or under-balanced ways.

Over the years, we have found that the Birth Day identifies a person's first recognized talents along with how the person may perceive herself or himself. It often reveals abilities they are comfortable with. Close friends will usually identify with the characteristics of the Birth Day more than the major theme within the Life Path. As mentioned in earlier lessons, we like to think of the individual Birth Day as the added spice one would put into a dish to bring out all its flavors!

In all cases, the best way you tap into the knowledge found within a given numeric vibration is by reading its combined expression as well as the individual numbers of which it is made.
For this lesson, we are going to use the birth date of 11-26-l953 as our example:

2 + 6 = 8
Emphasis is on the 8
2 = sub-influence
6 = sub-influence

By understanding the energy behind each vibration we gain a richer meaning. In the example above, the person would rely on 8 types of characteristics and abilities within their nature (please refer to Lesson One). This would lead them to use judgment and discernment in approaching most tasks. They would enjoy applying themselves and finding work that utilizes the other abilities found within their core. They would apply themselves in productive ways by contributing, organizing, and administering. With the 8 they would also be inclined to be in a management position or possibly be inclined to start their own business. Material gain would be important to them but in ways that would support and blend with their other vibrations.

The sub-influence of the 2 would add friendliness and balance to what they do. They would enjoy connection with others and feel a desire to maintain harmony. The 2 would also add sensitivity.
As we move to the sub-influence within the 6 we would find an ability to be of service and an attraction to areas in which they could apply themselves. This person would feel good about contributing to the well-being of others. The 6 is also a humanitarian vibration so it would draw out abilities which could be applied in areas of healing, family, art, animals, nature, etc. Responsibilities would hold their attention.

Now let's go back and synthesize what we have just learned with their 1 Life Path vibration. We have a greater sense of how this person will direct their 1 leadership qualities. We can see how their independence and individuality is flavored with these innate abilities. The 1 Life Path may soften a little bit by the influence of the 2 as well as the consideration within the 6. The 8 would strengthen the 1's sense of direction with judgment and discernment guiding it.

  • John Franklin Delano Roosevelt: January 30th l882

    Roosevelt, Franklin Delano, 1882-1945. The 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945). Governor of New York (1929-1932), he ran for President with the promise of a New Deal for the American people.

  • Martin Luther King: January 15, l929

    King, Martin Luther, Jr. (Note that we don't use the 'Jr.' to calculate his Birth Force.) 1929-1968. American cleric whose eloquence and commitment to nonviolent tactics formed the foundation of the civil rights movement of the 1950's and 1960's. Among the many peaceful demonstrations he led was the 1963 March on Washington, at which he delivered his "I have a dream" speech. He won the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize, four years before he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee.
  • Richard Milhous Nixon: January 9, l913

    Nixon, Richard Milhous 1913-1994. The 37th President of the United States (1969-1974). Vice President (1953-1961) under Dwight D. Eisenhower, he lost the 1960 presidential election to John F.

Although he increased U.S. military involvement in Southeast Asia, he was also responsible for the eventual withdrawal of U.S. troops. When Congress recommended three articles of impeachment for Nixon's involvement in the Watergate scandal, he resigned from office (August 9, 1974).

Numerology Lesson Six - The Expression

In Numerology Lesson Five we discussed the Birth Day and the knowledge found within it. This lesson reveals the information found within the Expression vibration. In reviewing Numerology Lesson Three, The Core Concept, we found that purpose and fulfillment lie within the Expression vibration.

As discussed previously, the name given at birth shares a wonderful story. The name contains potential direction and points to qualities you can cultivate during your life. By paying attention to this vibration, you will realize a wonderful opportunity and a divine promise. When embracing the qualities found here, you may find that your soul adds to its experience, knowledge, and growth as you continue with your soul's attainment. 

We feel the Expression points to purpose. Sometimes people are more aware of other core parts during the first stages of their life. As they become comfortable with their other core parts and find ways to balance them, their Expression becomes more evident. As people mature, the destiny actually transforms (but we'll leave that to one of your future lessons!). As the Expression becomes more integrated it will deepen the connection with other parts. It is as if the other parts are eager to join in and assist in helping attain life purpose.

To discover what your Expression vibration is refer to Numerology Lesson Two to find the numerical value of each letter. You have practiced this skill already by working with the first name. In calculating the Expression number, always use the full name as it appears on the birth certificate. This is the chosen name and it contains a blueprint, so to speak. Do not include in your calculations any designations such as 'Sr.' or 'Jr.' For those who were adopted, if they can go back and find the original birth certificate name, use that. If that isn't possible, then use the name the adopted parents chose.
Our true imprint lies within the name as it appeared on the birth certificate. However, if we change our names, we do add the qualities of name changes. The changed name overlaps, so in cases where the birth certificate name isn't available, valuable information can still be found in our first remembered full name.

Let's begin with a specific example. We'll be using the name 'Barbara Ann Kelly'. The calculation is as follows:

2 1 9 2 1 9 1
1 5 5
2 5 3 3 7
25/7 11/2 20/2
First Name: 7 Middle Name: 11/2 Last Name: 2
25 + 11 + 20 = 56
5 + 6 = 11/2

Here we find an individual with an Expression vibration of 11/2. We now know that as life brings experiences she will learn about the quality of the 2 and how it may bring her opportunity. As she approaches life with this in mind she may attract ways to find more fulfillment and life purpose.
As we discussed in Numerology Lesson One, the 11/2 is a master number and suggests an old soul vibration. The 11 attracts opportunity as a deepening of spiritual connection, which desires to illuminate its surroundings. The 2 contains qualities of kindness and friendship. It wishes to bring peace and balance to its surroundings. It is a vibration of a diplomatic nature and adds light to any subject. It enjoys helping others and carries much feeling within it. Now we can get a sense of how Barbara may attain direction and begin to find fulfillment and life purpose. By engaging in experiences that allow her to explore these qualities, she will begin to attract opportunities. As she does this, her other core parts will engage their qualities to assist her in attainment.

If you like, take a moment right now and intuit or imagine what kinds of environments and experiences Barbara may attract to find opportunity.

Some examples that we came up with are as follows:
Environments where she could help and assist others
Environments which embrace spiritual connectedness
Places where her kindness and caring could be of benefit
Facilitating as a mediator or assisting with diplomatic approaches
Working with design and balance which assists others in feeling better about themselves   

Are you getting the idea?
Now let's go back to previous lessons and refresh our memories. The individual nature within her Life Path Lesson Four would of course be present. It would point us to tools and assets within her. In addition, the qualities within her Birth Day Lesson Five will flavor the ways in which she expresses herself.

What Numerology Name Can Tell You 
Numerology is a look into how numbers affect our life, out personality, and everything else in between. However, the numbers in your numerology profile is not made up. Each number is a representation of something about you. This includes your name and is sometimes referred to as Numerology name. Your Name and Your Numerology Profile Several numbers in your numerology profile can be sourced from your name. Foremost among them is your Expression Number and the Soul Urge Number. There are also other numbers in your numerology profile which are derived from your full name, your nickname, your family name, etc. This includes the Minor Expression, the Minor Heart’s Desire, the Personality Number, the Maturity Number, and more. Each of the above numbers affect you in one way or another and they are derived from your name. It could also be a combination of the numbers from your name and one other number from your numerology profile. Letters and Numbers So, how exactly are letters converted into numbers? It’s easy. Keep in mind that each of the letters in the alphabet have their numerical equivalent. A is the number 1 and the letter Z is represented by the number 26. In numerology, however, you will be using a single form of that number. 1 will remain as 1, but Z’s 26 will be reduced to 8 by adding 2 and 6. Here is a simple table that numerologists use as a reference to determine the number that each letter represents. The Expression Number Also called the ‘Destiny Number’, the expression number is the number that represents the path that your life is taking. It is also sometimes seen as the way you express yourself. This number is computed using your full name or the one that appears in your birth certificate. If you have official changed your name, you should use that one instead. This is what makes the expression number the foremost of all the changeable or name-based numbers in your numerology profile. There have been several instances in history where a name changed helped an individual to change to way they lived their lives. This has applied to actors, and many others. The Soul Urge Number This number is computed by adding up the vowels in your full name. The Soul Urge is said to reveal the conscious and unconscious desires of your heart. It gives you an idea of what your soul really longs for and what your heart’s desire really is. This is the reason why the Soul Urge number is also known as the Heart’s Desire, the Motivation Number, the Individuality Number, and more. The soul urge number can be used to help you decide on which career you are going to take in life, on what hobbies and interests you would most likely be interested in. For many people who have used name numerology, the Soul Urge number is a very powerful number and can be used to help people who have not yet been able to figure out what they really want in life. It can also be used to help people who have long been conflicted about why they have been feeling out of place in work or with what they do in life. The Personality Number This number is derived from the consonants of your name. It is the number , which is also known as the Outer Self, External Expression, and more. The Personality Number is said to be the number that represents how people see you. It can be very different from your Life Path number, from your Expression Number, and from your Soul Urge Number. This numerology name number can help you figure out how people see you. How you come off to others. It can also help you find out how you can change how people perceive you. It is also a good way for you to find out how you can best live up to the best qualities that are associated with your personality number. It is also best to learn how to reconcile your personality number with the other numbers in your numerology profile. The Maturity Number This is another minor number in name numerology. It, however, has great significance and can tell you what your life will be like in your late 30s and 40s. This is represents what you desire to achieve in the future. The desire represented by the Maturity Number may not necessarily be apparent during the early stages of life or until the person is already living it. If your current career is not in accordance with your Maturity Number, this can mean that you may be in for a career change in the future. This can also mean that you may eventually end up following your true heart desire. Numerology name numbers, like the other numbers in your numerology profile must be taken with an understanding that each number affects the others. Your Expression Number, for example may affect how you will eventually live out your Maturity Number. It can also affect what your personality number.
