The Power of Numbers
There is a magical significance relating to Numerology. You can analyse your personality and discover how the power of numbers can motivate you. You can use numerology to analyse your name or your birth date.
When you want to analyse your name, you assign each letter a number based on the 26 letters of the alphabet. For example Amy would be 1+ 13 + 25 then 1+1+3+2+ 5 = 12, then 1+2 = 3. It is up to you whether you assess your first name, all of your names individually or your full name including middle names.
When you analyse your birth date, you take the day, the month and the year all in numbers – for example the 25th October 1971 would be 2+5+1+0+1+9+7+1 = 26, 2+6 = 8.
The reduced number gives you your life path number; these range from 1-9. In most cases you ae trying to reduce the number to a single digit, but if your first calculation gives you 11 or 22, then you do not reduce further – these are classed as master numbers.
