Your Life Path number revealed

The numbers of our date of birth are the fixed aspect of the Numerology chart. These numbers unlike the numbers of the name do not change. The overall date of birth number is often called the Destiny or Life Path number. It provides clues about the kind of work we are best suited to. On a spiritual level this number relates to the work we came here to do.

There are several ways to calculate this number all of which are perfectly right but I am going to share with you the method that I personally use. With some of the other methods we can miss the higher master numbers and so miss the opportunity to reach our full potential. In these changing times as we move toward 2012 I feel it is important to utilise these higher energies.

To calculate your Life Path Number we need to add together all of the numbers of your date of birth. For example see below;

Day of birth = 31
Month of birth = 07
Year of birth = 1955
Day + Month + Year (31 + 07 + 1955) = 1993
Life Path number (1+9+9+3) = 22

Twenty two is one of the Master numbers and has a higher vibrational energy to it and so we would look at the number 22 in the chart below. If we reduce this number again by adding 2+2 we get 4 so we would also look at the number 4. Both of these numbers would be relevant to this person. With 4 as the number of stability and order we can see that in order to fully utilise the energy of the number 22 this person would need to have a stable secure home life. Twenty two is the number of sensitivity and often brings the gifts of empathy or clairsentience which can sometimes be difficult to work with. It is also the number of the Architect the people who design and plan and make things happen.

In a chart or a personal reading we would also look at the day, month and year of birth numbers and their meanings. Here we will look at the overall number and the Life Path Number only.

    Michele I am confused! A renowned numerologist I met uses a different method of adding the birth date as a sum, going downwards (which my keyboard won’t let me show) So after years of not feeling like a Life Path 4 (it just doesn’t fit me), adding it downwards makes it a 22, which makes perfect sense of my life so far in terms of personality traits, and how frustrated I feel at times that I’m not fulfilling my potential. What do you think? My D.O.B is 25/01/1967. Thank you!
