Numerology is a 4,000-year-old science that gives meaning to numbers and some say, gives significance to your life. Like astrology, numerology is considered one of the intuitive arts and it is believed to increase the dimension of your understanding of your nature and personality: It has many systems, traditions and beliefs – from numerous cultures and teachings, including Babylonia, Pythagoras, astrological philosophy, psychology, early Christian mysticism, Gnostics, and the Hebrew system of the Kabbalah. The Hindu Vedas, the Chinese Circle of the Dead, and the Egyptian Book of the Masters of the Secret House also deal with numerical significance.
Pythagoras (6th century BC Greece) believed that because mathematical concepts were more practical and easier to regulate and classify than physical ones, they had greater actuality, and that people could discover the secrets of these relationships.
More recently, Dr. Juno Jordan, brought numerology into the 20th century and helped it become the system known today as “Pythagorean”. Dr. Jordan’s work “The Romance in Your Name” provided a system for identifying key numerological influences in a name and birth date and to this day, it remains a seminal interpretive guide for numerology: It has been used to assess major aspects of personality and the cyclical patterns in life. As demonstrated by a leading website Numerology.com , numerology is purported to show that each of us was born with a set of numbers unique to us. These numbers unlock the door to the depths of our personality and reveal the way we interact with others, lessons we can learn, opportunities we’ll be given, and challenges we’ll face. For example, a simple Life Path Number of 4 is said to signify a disciplined, hard-working, sure-footed, and determined, individual who loves security, and is good at planning and administration (see below on how to calculate LPN, and the meanings of other Life Path Numbers).
Most of the ancient cultures of China, Japan, India, Babylon, and Egypt, were familiar with numerology long before the Greeks and Romans started using it, but there are 3 main systems: Chaldean, Pythagorean and Kabbalah: The Chaldean System comes from ancient Babylon and is probably the oldest. The Pythagorean system assigns the number value by the sequence of the western alphabet, and uses a number formula from 0 to 9.
The principal personal number – and the one most commonly used, is derived from your Date of Birth. It is called your simple Life Path Number. A fuller numerological profile can also include Destiny Number, Soul Number, Personality Number, and Maturity Number.
Your Life Path Number is said to summarise your talents and explain the specific path you of your life – the so-called “Life you were born to live”. In addition, numerologists say that your Destiny Number describes your purpose or mission in this life; your Soul Number reveals your innermost desires and motivation; your Personality Number explains how other people see you; and your Maturity Number reveals your direction during the second half of your life. Through understanding these numbers, it is said that you can enhance spiritual growth.
Anyway, discovering these meanings can be fun and can enhance your experience of life – and many people find a remarkable correlation between the professed meaning of their Life Path Number, and their actual perceived character. Why not try it for yourself and see and discover your own ‘Camino’?
(Also see information about the Camino de Santiago on our sister site and our Zodiac jewellery )
Our Life Path Numerology bracelets, bangles or bands, are intended to transform this theory into a reality that can be carried around with you day by day – thus enforcing your beliefs in the Camino of your life – and acting as a strong daily reminder of your aims, wishes and desires . . and so a powerful gift with meaning for a friend or loved-one. But remember, as with any intuitive art, Numerology is all about making you conscious of possibilities and is not a foolproof formula for making (or not) any decisions. Life is about living and experiencing, and the intuitive arts like Astrology and Numerology can have a role in this respect. It can be fun, and for many, it has real value.
Life Path bracelet . . What does yours mean? and What exactly is our Life Path jewellery?
The Life Path bracelet is a bangle that contains a symbolic representation of you own special Life Path Number (as based on the ancient art of Numerology).
How do you calculate your Life Path Number and what does it mean?
In the ancient art of Numerology, a full numerological profile includes five numbers, but the principal, and most important is the Life Path Number. Over more than a thousand years, numerous methods of estimating and calculating life’s purpose from numbers have arisen. As mentioned, perhaps the most famous is the Pythagorean system – from the Greek mathematician Pythagoras (571- 495 B.C.) To calculate your number, we use a system with Pythagorean roots as outlined in a fascinating book by Dan Millman ” The life you were born to live “: This number, he says, acts as a blueprint for your whole life and this one number will never change for you. Your Life Path Number is said to greatly influence your personality and the opportunities and challenges you face. From this, it is possible to assess a great deal about yourself, and Dan’s book is a good source of this information.
Birth Date: 31/08/1954 –> Birth Date Number : 3+1+0+8+1+9+5+4 = 31
Simple Life Path Number = 3+1 = 4
Entire Life Path Number would be 31/4
