Your Numbers
In the last couple of weeks Numerology has been at the forefront of my mind.  I had my numbers done before and always knew that my birth date added up to be an 11, but I really did not understand quite how important a role numbers have in our life.  All numbers hold vibration and the numbers our soul chooses through our birth date or name at birth have significance for our life lessons and the things we need to do and achieve in this lifetime.   So for today’s inspiration I consulted a very talented numerologist to provide some information on the topic of numbers and what they mean for you.

Numerology: Self Knowledge is the key to Freedom & Success. By Michelle Buchanan
“Pythagoras” The Greek Mystic & Mathematician created Western Numerology over 2,500 years ago.  The Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Hebrews, Egyptians, Phoenicians, early Christians, Mayans, and Incas all employed some form of Numerology to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the Universe. 
Numerology is primarily a self-help tool to gain greater insight & understanding into your inner being & true nature.  Something as simple as your “full name at birth” and your “full date of birth” can reveal your Life Purpose, Soul’s Urge, Life Lessons, Opportunities, Strengths & Challenges.    This information can provide a better quality of life through a deeper understanding of yourself and others. 
Full Numerology readings are incredibly insightful when you want to live your Life Purpose (or discover “what” it is) - when you’re stuck at a crossroads unsure which way to turn.  It can help uncover why you face the challenges you do, why your life’s the way it is or why others behave the way they do.  Self Knowledge truly is the key to your freedom and success.
There are 6 core numbers in Numerology, one of which is your Life path number. 
To find your Life Path number, add every single number of your “full date of birth” together like this: 1/6/1996 would be 1+6+1+9+9+6=32. 
Then add the final 2 digits together until you get one final number i.e.  3+2 = 5
Every number breaks down to a single digit number between 1 and 9, however, never add the final 2 digits together when they total 11 or 22.  These are Master Numbers, highly evolved souls who are here on a special mission to help mankind.  They remain an 11 or 22.
Please find a very brief description of the Life Path numbers below:
1: Independent, Leader, Innovative, Pioneering, Practical:  Impatient, Domineering, Self Doubting & Insecure
2: Peaceful, Harmonious, Intuitive, Mediator, Supportive:  Indecisive, Moody, Co-Dependent & Over Committing
3: Fun Loving, Talkative, Creative, Humoress, Expressive: Dramatic, Disorganised, Critical & Self Doubting
4: Hard Working, Methodical, Loyal, Reliable, Disciplined:  Difficult, Stubborn, Narrow Minded & Inflexible
5: Freedom Lovers, Talkative, Adventurous, Investigative, Energetic: Intolerant, Melodramatic, Addictive & Non Committing
6: Nurturing, Advisor, Loving, Sympathetic, Devoted: Interfering, Possessive, Perfectionist & Judgemental

NB: Conditions such as trauma, abuse and grief from the loss of a parent or loved one, can cause children and adults to stray from the typical personality traits of their number.  
Please note: In order to get a true understanding of ‘your numbers’ it is best to have a full numerology reading.
