NUMEROLOGY – A JOURNEY OF NUMBERS
LEARNING THE SYMBOLISM OF NUMEROLOGY
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.”
(As You Like It, Act II Scene VII by William Shakespeare 1564-1616)
We all have a birthdate and a birth name.
The practice of decoding one’s birthdate and name is known as Numerology. ‘Numero’ comes from the Latin word ‘Numerus’ meaning ‘a number’ added to the English word ‘logy’ (derived from the medieval latin word ‘logia’, indicating a discourse or speech). It is described as the branch of knowledge that deals with the significance of numbers.
Your Birthdate is made up of numbers. Every alphabet in your name are assigned numbers.
Decoding your numbers helps you to understand yourself and your life better. In the same way, it helps you to understand your family and friends too. With this understanding, life then becomes more harmonious.
Hence, Numerology, represented by number symbols, acts as a guide on how to harmoniously navigate your way along your life’s journey.
How does Numerology work?
Everything in this universe, of time and space, is energy, vibrating at different frequencies. These different vibratory frequencies are symbolised by numbers.
Each of the numbers, reduced from 1 to 9, represent an archetype. These archetypes collectively represent the qualities, tendencies and characteristics inherent in human beings and in all forms existent in this universe of time and space. In addition, they symbolise circumstances and events and would therefore reveal the nature of a situation at any given time.
As everything is interconnected, each human being’s pattern is invariably unique. For the combination of one’s birthdate and name is what creates one’s numerology chart.
In conclusion, numbers, by themselves, do not make things happen. They instead reveal to you the overall vibratory patterns prevalent in your life. Knowing this helps you to be in harmony with the universal energies. This occurs through the understanding and acceptance of your relationships and life situations, thereby contributing towards a more harmonious and peaceful existence.
Hence, the study of Numerology may seen seen as a ‘holistic’ learning in one’s life.
