What is Numerology?

What is Numerology

No matter what area of spirituality you’re exploring, you’ll find a reference to numerology. You could be looking at angel numbers, horoscopes, astrology charts, or something else entirely, but one way or another, numerology will play a role. But What is Numerology? Learning to understand the power of numbers, and how numbers play a more vital role in our lives and the universe than you may imagine, is an important part of every single person’s spiritual journey. We’ll look at the core numerology concepts before exploring some examples of numbers being important aspects of our lives.

What is Numerology – Vibrational Energy

There’s a vitally important aspect of the universe that we must discuss before going any further. When we look at some of the great minds of history, we often hear about people creating mathematical theories or calculation. However, we didn’t create mathematics or numbers, we discovered them.

We gave names to the numbers, we found various ways that they interact with one another, but the concepts themselves have always been there, hidden from view until such time as humanity was ready to progress. After all, what is numerology if not glimpses into the universe itself.

Many great minds understood this. It’s no accident that most ancient and modern belief systems focus on some version of a trinity. From Ancient Egypt to Babylon, to modern-day Christianity.

Scientists such as Nikola Tesla understood the power of numbers. He’s often quoted as saying:

If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the universe!

Nikola Tesla

Tesla is known to have had ties to Ancient Egypt through the various inventions he created, and so we have to wonder what he discovered about numerology. Every number is unique, not because of its value, but because of the vibrational energy level associated with it.

On a spiritual level, different numbers interact with the universe in a slightly different way. It’s because of this that we can understand numbers as messages, such as when we interpret angel numbers. Numerology, in essence, is the understanding of how numbers influence the world around us, and through it, we can learn to use numbers as spiritual keys. You might have in mind still the Angel Numbers.

How do I figure out what my numerology number is?

What is numerology in relation to your spiritual journey? Through your life, from the moment you’re born until the moment you die (and even beyond that), there are certain numbers that represent various aspects of your life.

You can view these as being similar to DNA, but they represent your connection to the universe. There are 5 key examples of these types of numbers: Destiny Number (also known as the Life Path Number), Expression Number, Soul Urge Number, Personality Number, and Birth Number.

You may be asking, what is my numerology number? Each of these numbers is calculated in a slightly different way. For example, by attributing a numerical value to each letter of the alphabet (e.g. A=1, B=2, C=3…), and by adding the value of all the consonants in your full birth name, you can calculate your Personality Number.

Each of the values for each type of number represents a different personality. Through the countless combinations, you can see how every person in the world fits into the world and the universe. You and a friend may share Expression Numbers but have wildly different Personality Numbers. By understanding these numbers and what they mean, you can live your life in a way that allows you to maximize your potential.

Tuning your Universal Frequency

Understanding the role that numbers play through interacting with our lives and the universe can seem a little confusing. The simplest way to explain it is by thinking about radio. When you have a radio, you must tune it to a specific frequency in order to hear a specific station.

Imagine that it’s your first time listening to a radio, and you have no idea which stations you will enjoy, or which frequencies to tune it to in order to find any radio stations at all.

As you turn the dial, you’re going to encounter a lot of static. This white noise represents the vastness of the universe. Most frequencies will result in static, and so you’ll spend a lot of time searching for stations still, and even more time finding stations that appeal to you.

Now, imagine that somebody hands you a list of radio stations, but the frequencies are all out of order. This represents your discovery of numerology. What is numerology? It’s the understanding of the role of numbers in this universe.

You have the important frequencies, but you then need to work out which connects to the radio stations that you wish to listen to, and this represents the calculation of life numbers.

So, by calculating your life numbers, you can understand your frequency within the universe, and you can tweak your life in the same way you tweak the frequency of a radio. After all, as we mentioned earlier, what is numerology if not a glimpse into the universe.

Tapping into the Universe

Now that we have answered the question, what is numerology, we have to understand the bigger picture. You’re probably familiar with destiny: the idea that we all have a certain destination that we’re heading towards, something that we must achieve or complete in order to fulfill our purpose in life. Some people believe that destiny is unavoidable but in truth its where we should end up, assuming we follow our true spiritual path.

When we stray from this path, we fall out of synchronicity. This is a term that was developed by Carl Gustav, who believed that coincidences can be meaningful, and therefore their appearance in our lives is an indication that we’re part of something larger and are indications of whether we’re on the right path.

Numerology works as a guide as well, and by following the direction that your numbers lead you in, you can achieve synchronicity. You’ll then begin to see that nothing is actually random, and there’s no such thing as coincidence.

Everything that happens, everything we experience, and every action and decision we make is part of a larger system, whether we realize it or not. The more you interact with the universe, especially through numerology, the clearer your view and understanding of the grander universe will become.
