NUMEROLOGY IS A SCIENCE:
In fact, it's perhaps the oldest science known to man.
Another name for numerology is the "Science of Numbers." It recognizes that numbers are vibrations, and each vibration is different from the next due to the number of cycles it oscillates per second. And every sound, color, fragrance and thought is also a vibration, each dancing to the tune of its inherent number, which is connected to life in its own distinct way.
Since Biblical times, people have recognized patterns of time. The Scripture says that there is "a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted," (Ecclesiastes 3:2). Economists understand that business runs in a regular cycle that appears to follow an “S” curve. Even the average person on the street can be heard to say that a successful person "just seemed to be at the right place at the right time."
The Science of Numbers AKA Numerology is unique in that it recognizes these cycles of time and applies the mathematical principle to measure and predict its quality during any given period. There are specific times to start projects, encourage growth and reap the rewards of success, and Numerology teaches how to calculate one's own personal cycle to determine which cycle they are currently experiencing and will experience in the future.
The law of cycles applies to business and personal life. It affects relationships and influences one's own thinking. With an understanding of time through cycles, one can work with cycles to create successful projects and minimize frustration. Of course, if one ignores cycles and works against, or in ignorance of, them then failure is surely around the corner. It is the same as if a farmer were to plan a crop in autumn instead of spring; nothing will grow.
Understanding time (or cycles) will give greater control over one's life by illuminating the natural patterns that affect us all. The knowledge and use of cycles will allow anyone to achieve the successes they deserve.
The History Of Numerology
Where numerology came from and how it came to be is somewhat of a mystery, like many ancient philosophies. Egypt and Babylon are where the earliest written records of numerology are said to be.
Other evidence shows that numerology was used thousands of years ago in Rome, China, Greece, and Japan.
Modern-day numerology is normally credited to Pythagoras, who was a Greek philosopher. Although it is not known if he invented Numerology, he had some theories behind it, which took numbers to a completely different level. These theories are now the reason behind Pythagoras having the credit for modern day numerology.
Dr. Julian Stenton was actually the person who came up with the name ‘Numerology’. He also bought recognition and awareness to it in modern day times. There is not much else known about the whereabouts of Numerology, it has become quite popular in today’s society and is used by many.
How Does Numerology Work? The Basics
How numerology works is actually quite complicated and usually requires a master numerologist to provide detailed and accurate readings. Though you can easily find your life lesson number and things like your expression, personality, and soul urge numbers using basic calculations, it is the way that these numbers work together that need to be interpreted properly.
The idea behind numerology is that the cosmos and your life is affected by your birth date, birth name and many other factors surrounding an individual. In this way, there are great depths that a numerology forecast can provide. Consequently, it can provide often astounding insights about somebody.
It is believed that there are no coincidences in the Universe that your name and birthday affect the journey that you will take and your characteristics, in the same way, that some look at horoscopes or astrology to interpret signs or destinies.
Your Numerology Life Lesson Number
In Numerology, your Life Lesson Number is the most important number. It forms the basis of what path your life could take. Similarly, it should be reflective of who you are, or should be, in your personality and traits. A life lesson number also outlines any opportunities or challenges you may face, as well as any lessons you may have to learn along the way.
Each life path number has a different meaning.
It is calculated by adding up the numbers in your full date of birth. For example, October 11th 1977, would be 10 + 11 = 21. Then the 1977 is broken down as 1 + 9 + 7 + 7 = 24.
Now you add ALL 3 digits of 10+11+24 = 45.
This is the same with any double digit numbers which you should keep adding together until you end up with a 1 digit number.
Not too difficult right?.
7 Interesting Facts About Numerology
