Introducing another new way to define a person’s aura! Within the practice of numerology, it's believed that we can better understand the world around us by observing numerical patterns in our daily lives. But, this spiritual discipline can also help people better understand their inner world, too. With the help of a simple equation, anyone can discover their Life Path number, a single-digit number that is said to reveal who you are, your deepest values, and the challenges you may have to face.
Numerology is pretty ancient, and is typically attributed to the teachings of the Greek philosopher Pythagoras. He believed that numbers tended to pop up in the universe, each with their own individual meanings, and created a system for interpretation which has been expanded upon endlessly in modern times. Which is to say, there are lots of potential number calculations you could make for your own life, but the most popular and common is the Life Path Number.
HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR LIFE PATH NUMBER
Figuring out your Life Path Number is easy; simply take your birthday. To do this, you will reduce each component of your birth-date to a single digit 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.
Here we show a few examples to make this more clear:
Example 1: We start by taking the groups of the numbers in the birth date, birth month, and birth year and add them together in a specific order.
December = (1+2) = 3
16 = (1 + 6) = 7
1992 = (1 + 9 + 9 + 2) = 22 (2+2) =4
(4 + 5 + 4) = 13 = (1 + 3) = 4
Life Path = 4
Example 2: Do Not Reduce Master Numbers 11 or 22
Do not reduce the Numbers 11 or 22 (1 + 1 = 2 or 2 + 2 = 4) if they show up in the groups during the calculation, until the final calculation. The numbers 11 and 22 are special Master Numbers in Numerology and have additional properties and meanings.
October 8, 1991
October = (1+0) = 1
8 = 8
1991= (1 + 9 + 9 + 1) = 20 (2+0) =2
(1 + 8 + 2) = 11
Life Path =11
