INTRODUCTION
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 patterna soul vibrationthat 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!
Numerology attempts to describe the relative existence of everything in nature, based on the premise that all is reducible to numbers, and that all numbers follow the natural law of mathematical progression. In particular, ratios of numbers become pure entities and take on fundamental importance. A basic axiom is that all things in nature evolve in cycles, mathematical progressions which are measurable and predictable. Numerology deals primarily with rational numbers, specifically integers. It even goes so far as to limit itself, for the most part, to the 9 symbols, which make up 90% of the base 10 system. Yet, it contains within those 9 symbols a significant amount of information.
Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers. It is used to determine a person’s personality, strengths and talents, obstacles, inner needs, emotional reactions and ways of dealing with others. Whether you use numerology to examine your life, take advantage of unexplored opportunities, confirm your talents or simply figure out where to go next, numerology can be a penetrating tool that helps you understand yourself and loved ones better. Numerology presents the whole picture, revealing all the diverse parts of your personality and how they come together to create the person you are. With this complete view, you are able to make the most of your strengths.
The use of numbers for predictive purposes were used by Chaldeans, Phoenicians, Hindus, Chinese, Hebrews, and early Christians. Most of the symbologies employed followed the progression of numbers, with Ones signifying a beginning or genesis, the higher numbers representing the progress through life, and Nines signifying completion.
Shortly after 600 B.C.E., the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, founded the first university and developed his theory of numbers. These theories are the basis of all natural law today and are also the foundation for Numerology. Pythagoras determined that everything progressed in predictable cycles, and assumed a relationship with respect to the alphabet.
Fundamental to dealing with Numerology is what is called “reduction of numbers”. This means essentially that one takes any number with two or more digits and reduces it to a single digit. This is done by adding each of the integers in the number to arrive at a total whose integers are then added again, until a single digit is obtained.
The updated Pythagorean conversion table uses numbers 1 through 9, each of which is related to certain letters of the alphabet and reduced as follows.
A ==============================> 1
B ==============================> 2 c ==============================> 3 D ==============================> 4 E ==============================> 5 F ==============================> 6 G ==============================> 7 G ==============================> 8 I ===============================> 9 J======>10========1+0===========> 1 K======>11========1+1===========> 2 L======>12========1+2===========> 3 M======>13========1+3===========> 4 N======>14========1+4===========> 5 O======>15========1+5===========> 6 P======>16========1+6===========> 7 Q======>17========1+7===========> 8 R======>18========1+8===========> 9 S===>19====>1+9====>10====1+0===> 1 T===>20====>2+0=================> 2 U===>21====>2+1=================> 3 V===>22====>2+2=================> 4 W===>23====>2+3=================> 5 X===>24====>2+4=================> 6 Y===>25====>2+5=================> 7 Z===>26====>2+6=================> 8
The magic of numerology meanings takes your name or date of birth and reduces them down to single digits. Each digit from 1 to 9 has it's own tendencies. The resultant number is said to reveal your key personality.
Everything in the universe vibrates at its own particular frequency. By finding the vibration rate of any object, you can establish the qualities and energies associated with it. By applying the principles of numerology  and using only a name and birth date as the basic data  you can determine the major frequencies of a person. A numerological analysis of the calculated frequencies provides significant information on personality and character.
The use of Numerology to reveal personal characteristics is accomplished by taking one’s full name at birth (the one recorded on a birth certificate). Titles such as Dr., Miss, Shah, etceteras, are not used, and neither are Juniors, the second, etceteras. [People with the same name will attract the same vibrations, but inasmuch as free will is fundamental to the science (or art) of Numerology, different results and circumstances are always possible.] The date of birth is also used.
Typically, three numbers are obtained, one being the sum of the vowels, one the sum of the consonants, and one the sum of all the letters. The first is sometimes referred to as the “Motivation Number” and represents what a person consciously wants out of life  i.e. the basic motivating force behind everything they do. The second is the “Impression Number” and represents the fantasy side of what one dreams to creating, without the necessity of the dream being tested against reality. The third number is the “Expression Number” and represents the manner in which one best expresses themselves, their natural abilities and potential. There is even a fourth number, based on one’s birthdate, that represents the types of influences one must successfully encounter in order to ultimately achieve their maximum fulfillment  essentially their “Destiny Number”.
