Life Path Numerology


What is numerology?

For centuries, numbers were perceived as the building blocks from which the universe is constructed, they were used to explain the rhythms of nature and the story of creation and the power of the Divine. Ancient cultures used the art of Numerology, some of the earliest records appear in Ancient Egypt, Babylon, China, Mayan, Tibet, Rome, Japan, Greece and Celts. All energies have a certain frequency and vibration, which can be expressed through numbers and sacred geometry. Numerology and sacred geometry reflects the foundational building blocks of our Universe and realities, and how the physical world is compromised of the energetic vibration of numbers.

Numerology has also been used to correlate the significance of numbers to your date of birth and your name, where each letter has a numerical value. There are three major forms of Numerology— Kabbalic, Chaldean and the Pythagorean. They can be used in any combination to decode a person’s birth promise and forecast map, indicating their strengths, true destiny and divine mission.

Your life path number

Your life path number is an indication of the optimal expression of your purpose, assets, talents, abilities, ambitions, and your weakness, obstacles or shadow. Every year the calendar changes, your personal numerology changes, and this also happens month by month. When the numbers in your life change – for instance a new address, new uniform number, or new telephone number, these transitions affect you energetically. Every new year, the shift in numbers create a vibrational shift, and we all share the influence of this transformation. As the energy changes for each year and month, you can plan in accordance with divine timing. There is a time for romance, work, play, rest, and action, there is a season for everything.

How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

The easiest way to start working with numerology is by analysing your unique date of birth. Numerology is all about getting to the root number. To do this, you simply reduce digits until you reach a single-digit number, excluding 11 and 22, which are considered Master Numbers. This single digit is your individual Life Path Number.


Let’s say your birthday is December 15, 1992. To calculate your Life Path Number, you will reduce each component of this date to a single digit:

The month, 12, is reduced to 1 + 2 = 3.

The date, 15, is reduced to 1 + 5 = 6.

The year, 1992, is reduced to 1 + 9 + 9 + 2. This equal 21. Then, 21 is reduced to 2 + 1 = 3.

Then, we add the reduced month, date, and year numbers (3 + 6 + 3) and arrive at 12. Finally, we add 1 + 2, and reach 3.

If you were born on December 15, 1992, your Life Path Number is 3.
