You Can Count On It: A Basic Guide to Numerology
We are all affected by the vibrating energy that governs the Universe, for we are all a part of it. Each shift or vibration affects us all, as we are part of a whole, and this vibration changes with each new day, month, and year.
The vibrations that to belong to you personally, are determined by your given names at birth, and the day, month, and year that you were born.
There are four main influences that I find very useful. These numerical influences give you certain urges and desires, certain types of expression, a certain environment or opportunity you carry through life, and what the coming year looks like. Some of these cannot be changed, and some can. Your personal numbers will tell you how to adjust yourself to the things that cannot be changed, or make the changes that are within your power, as well as how to attract to you the things you need to help you along the way.
Here is a basic guide to those numerology influences, and how you can easily calculate these numbers for yourself:
First on my list is the Soul Urge.
This is the number of your heart’s desire, it is the motive that lies behind your acts; the feeling you put into a day’s work; your attitude towards things and people; your judgment, principles, and point of view. This is your HOW.
Calculating your Soul Urge number –
The vowels in your given name give the vibration of your Soul Urge. The principle vowels are A E I O U. W is a vowel only when paired with another vowel and sounding as one. (AW, EW, OW) Y is a vowel when preceded by another vowel and sounding as one. (AY, EY, OY)
Using the full name of “The Wellness Universe,” we give each vowel a number value, using the provided table.
Now, we add together the values of each given name, then reduce each to a single digit number.
(Except 11 and 22 respectively)
THE — 5 = 5
WELLNESS — 10 = 1 + 0 = 1
UNIVERSE — 22 = 22
Adding these three numbers we get 28. (5 + 1 + 22 = 28)
Finally, we reduce this number to find our Soul Urge number. 2 + 8 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1
So, the Soul Urge for The Wellness Universe is “1.”
The second on my list is the Expression.
The sum of your natural capacities, and capabilities. That which you most easily express; your talents and possibilities; the type of work you may do; shows what tools you have to work with. Your WHAT.
How to find your Expression –
Your Expression is found by adding the sum of ALL the letters of your given name. The essence and vibrations of YOU.
Using the same table we used for the Soul Urge, we give each letter a value, added the sum of each given name separately, and then reduced each total to a final digit.
Finally, we reduce the sum of these three numbers to a single digit to find your Expression number.
6 + 1 + 5 = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3
So the Expression number for The Wellness Universe is “3.”
The third on my list is the Life Path.
This is your destiny, something you cannot change.
It shows the directions you should take, whether you will or not. Here is where you will find opportunities to do the job you were designed for. It brings the people, places, and environment that will bring your personal goals to fruition. This is your WHERE, and is fixed.
How to calculate your Life Path –
Your Life Path is found from your date of birth. The sum of the day, month, and year you were born. It shows what you came to do, and who you are to become. Same as with the Soul Urge and Expression, to calculate the Life Path we reduce to a single-digit-number.
The month, day and year are calculated according to their numerical position in the calendar. (January is the first month, so its number is 1, February 2, etc.)
Days are calculated according to their calendar number, and are also reduced to a single-digit-number. (With the exception of 11, and 22.)
Years are numbered according to their digits of the calendar. (Again, with the exception of 11, and 22.) For example, let’s calculate the birth date of The Wellness Universe, January 23rd, 2015.
- Month: 01 = 1
- Day: 23 = 2 + 3 = 5
- Year: 2015 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 8
Now we add these numbers and then reduce to a single-digit number 1 + 5 + 8 = 14 = 1 + 4 = 5
So, the Life Path number for The Wellness Universe is “5.”
The last on my list is the Universal Year.
This is a general trend, indicated by the numbers we find on the calendar. This trend changes every 12 months. With the coming and going of each new year, we have a different vibration to respond to.
How to calculate the Universal Year —
To calculate the Universal Year we add together the digits of the calendar year. 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11
As you can see 2018 is an “11” year.
Since 11 is a Master number, this is sure to be a very special and rare year, previous 11 years were in 1910 and 2009.
Here is a little information about the Master number 11:
The 11 symbolizes the potential to push the limitations of the human experience into the stratosphere of the highest spiritual perception; the link between the mortal and the immortal; between man and spirit; between darkness and light; ignorance and enlightenment. This is the ultimate symbolic power of the 11. **
