What is numerology?
Everything in the universe has an energy vibration – and numbers are no different. In fact, every number (and letter) has its own unique vibration that has an influence upon the story of your life. Therefore, numerology is the study of the relationship that numbers and letters have with our personality and life events. It is an ancient metaphysical science that reveals the blueprint of every human being’s life and it is one of the most accurate and powerful self-help tools available today.
From a spiritual perspective, you have a soul within your physical body that has chosen to incarnate into this life simply to evolve through the life experiences it encounters while it’s here. Throughout the course of this life there are specific areas of growth your soul has chosen to master and specific opportunities it would like to take advantage of on its journey. In order to do this there are specific personality traits and life circumstances it requires in order to achieve its goal – the details of which are found in your “numbers.”
In other words, your numerology profile uncovers the blueprint of what your soul has pre-chosen to accomplish in this life. One of the benefits of numerology is that it can uncover your destiny and life purpose and the life lessons you’ll face along the way, which is valuable information if you want to make the most of your journey.
Numerology is so much more than predicting the future, or choosing the ideal partner, date, or name. It’s the bridge between who you are now and who you have the potential to be. It’s a stepping stone that enables you to live your best life and be the best that you can be.
Western numerology was created by the Greek mystic and mathematician, Pythagoras who also created the “Pythagorean Theorem” – one of the most famous theorems in mathematics that is still taught in secondary-school mathematics classes around the world today. Pythagoras certainly knew his stuff and when it comes to the credibility of numerology and where it stems from, I like to ask: If Pythagoras was considered a genius of the ages, why would he create something that was complete load of rubbish? I rest my case.
How numerology improved my life
I am often asked why I love numerology and the answer is because it has helped me to improve my life in a variety of ways. First of all, it enabled me to see myself in a direct, honest, and non-biased way – which helps when you’re on a journey of personal transformation. It then showed me how to view my life from a deeper and broader perspective, and to see it as a blueprint. This helped me to “de-personalize” my challenges and see them as opportunities for growth, which are necessary for the evolution of my soul.
Numerology has taught me that regardless of how difficult my challenges may be, I was born with the ability to overcome them – which is one of the reasons I chose them in the first place. That information really helps when you’re trying to make sense of your problems and are searching for a light at the end of the tunnel.
More than anything, numerology has helped me understand, accept, and make peace with myself. This has been one of my greatest achievements to date, because I hated myself for years.
Thanks to numerology, I was able to recognize (and take responsibility for) my shortcomings so I could begin improving myself and creating a better life. Knowing my destiny, life purpose, and future potential has inspired me to become a better person and to make the most of my life – and for that I’m truly grateful.
Here are some of the reasons why numerology has improved my life.
Reassured me that I’m on the right path
Uncovered my pre-chosen destiny
Confirmed my life purpose
Revealed my future potential
Provided a tool to better understand others
Shown me other possibilities for my life
Helped me to prepare for upcoming challenges
Given me direction in life
Enabled me to take advantage of opportunities coming my way
Provided my life’s blueprint
Made me aware of my strengths and weaknesses
Helped me to forecast and plan my future
Improved my relationships with others
And one more thing… numerology even helped me to make the biggest dream of my life come true. That’s right! Understanding my numerology blueprint helped me to get my book The Numerology Guidebook and oracle cards Numerology Guidance Cards published by Hay House, so I could share numerology with the world. Now, my wish for you is that numerology will help to make your dreams come true, too.

The benefits of numerology
The greatest benefit of numerology is the gift of insight. To be forewarned is to be forearmed, and numerology provides the road map for your life so you have an idea of where you’re going and what to expect along the way. If you decided to take a road trip to an unfamiliar destination, wouldn’t you prefer to consult a map to see where you’re going and check the driving conditions before you hit the road? Numerology is a tool that can help you to find your destination and to arrive there safely, too.
In addition, numerology uncovers your potential and shows you what you have the ability to achieve. It helps with goal‑setting and planning your future and it gives you reassurance that you’re on the right path. Another advantage is that it enables you to prepare for potential challenges and to grasp the opportunities coming your way.
How can numerology improve your life
Numerology gives your life meaning. It takes it from being a “random event” to a pre-planned blueprint of opportunity and potential. It offers direction and added insight into what’s around the corner, and it uncovers your destiny and life purpose. It also provides a deeper understanding of others and the world around you. How can than not improve your life?
How to use numerology
Along with any form of prediction or divination, numerology is best used as a guide to complement your life. Combined with intuition, sound decision-making, and plain old common sense, it should be used as a tool to help you to navigate your life better.
Just in case you were wondering … numerology can’t predict winning lottery numbers or a person’s time of death. (But it might be handy if it could).
You don’t have to be good at mathematics to learn numerology – the equations are simple and only require basic addition and subtraction. All you need is a calculator, some paper, and a pen. On second thoughts, you’d better make that a pencil with an eraser, just in case.
It is my wish that you are, at the very least, “open” to the guidance and wisdom numerology has to offer in your life. I can assure you that once you embrace the language of “numbers”, your life will never be the same again.
