Numerology is an ancient system of numbers which was used by the Chinese, Greeks, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Incas Mayans and early Christians to be able to better understand themselves and the universe. This knowledge has been passed on to us. Numerology can help us make sense of ourselves and the world we live in.

It can be used as a guide in careers, relationship, challenges, and opportunities. Numerology describes the different life cycles encountered on our journey through the earth and the ever vibrating energy it possesses.
It is believed that all the numbers that cross your path in life do not occur by accident. This can be evident when people are subconsciously drawn to a particular number. Each number has a personality, an inner nature, its individual vibration. Your birthday, names (the corresponding numbers in the alphabet), and any number you encounter throughout your life is trying to tell you a story about yourself in its own language. It can be used to communicate about the future if you listen. You still have the ability to choose your own path but understanding Numerology helps you understand your true purpose, your attributes, flaws, and the lifecycle in order to make more informed life choices.

This is the most significant number in your Numerology chart. It is derived from the date of your birthday. Birth signifies the transition from whatever form you were into the physical form. Your birth date marks the beginning of your life as you want it, it can be used to give a blueprint or an outline for the rest of your life. The life path number derived from your birthday is a guide to prepare you for the challenges, opportunities, and lessons that may cross your path in life. It will help you make your decisions for a better future.
How to Find your Life Path Number
The Life Path is a cycle, it runs from the date of your birth to your death interacting with the other numerological cycles in your life. Period cycles each cover around a third of your life in three long-term cycles. The First Period is dependent on the reduced number of your birth month, the Second Period from the reduced birth day and the Third Period from the reduced birth year. Using this knowledge we find your life path by first deducting the month day and year of your birth to a single-digit number or referred to as a Master Number (these are 11, 22 and 33). Now, add each of the Master Number (results from the 1st step) together and reduce the total to a single digit or Master Number.
For example for someone born on November 10th 1993 the life path would be calculated as:
Month: November – 11th month. 11 reduces to 2 (1 +1 =2)
Day: 10 – 10 reduces to 1 (1+0 = 1)
Year: 1993. 1993 reduces to 4 (1+9+9+3= 22, then 2+2 = 4)
Add the resulting single digit number: 2+1+4 = 7
The life number, in this case, is 7
