There is a path that everyone is born with. In Numerology, that path is determined by your “destiny number” or “life path number.”
Numerology is a divinatory art that goes back thousands of years. It is an ancient practice that draws cosmic meaning, purpose, and guidance from numbers and number combinations, and is often considered a companion to Astrology.
There are various methods of calculating and interpreting your life path number. However, the most common method in western culture is the Pythagorean Numerology Method, which is sometimes deemed as “Modern Numerology.” This method defines your natural abilities and gifts that were given to you at birth.
Calculating your life path number with this method begins with your birth date. These significant numbers offer insight into who you are and the course of your life. For example, if you were born on October 28th, 1998, your life path number would be 2. This is calculated by separately reducing the month, day, and year you were born. In this particular example, it would look like this:
Figuring out your life path number is a meaningful thing. It explains your greater purpose in life and your strengths, weaknesses, and talents. This number even reveals the nature of your experiences and the reason why these events occur, whether it be in your past, present, or future.
Tapping into your life path number is like finding a key to a lock. You will learn about opportunities, obstacles, lessons, and gifts that are unique to you in this lifetime. It is believed that you specifically chose this path, and your number is a contract with this specific lifetime—sort of like a “soul contract.” But don’t let that phrase deter you. All this means is that you have lessons to learn in this lifetime and that your soul is continuing to grow.
Though numerology is not standardly a psychic practice, it does allow for predictions or explanations of events (past, present, or future). Every life path number contains a certain vibration, and these vibrations create specific traits, circumstances, and teachings. If the vibration is known, then the display of energy is predictable. As with all kinds of energies or vibrations, it is important to remember that there is a spectrum of manifestation and interpretation.
Throughout the course of your journey in this lifetime, your life path number vibration will evolve as you evolve. And discovering and learning more about your number will bring you to a higher conscious life, making you more knowledgeable and equipped to make choices and explore the gifts, lessons, and opportunities for you in this lifetime.
