Have you ever felt like a particular number just keeps showing up in your life? Ever feel like that number means something? Sometimes we hold on to a certain number believing it brings us luck; it turns up in lucky situations or helps you win competitions or matches.
Numbers and mathematics, are so deep and intricate that they tie into everything in the universe. Plato said that “God geometrizes continually”. The idea that God created the entire universe according to a geometric plan is not by any means a new concept.
The study of numbers alongside spirituality is known as “Numerology”. This term was first recorded in 1907 and so it is fairly new. It refers to the belief in the divine and mystical relationship that exists between numbers and coinciding events. St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354–430) wrote “Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.”
Many cultures across the globe have assigned numbers to various letters of the alphabet to attach mystical meaning to words. Western numerology is traced back to the Greek philosopher and mathematician, Pythagoras. Pythagoras said that the entire universe is mathematically precise and that each number holds its own energies and meanings.
The idea that numbers hold spiritual significance however, was developed and practiced by the ancient Maya, who felt that the universe, ages and cycles, could all be broken down into numbers. They believed that numbers were alive and sacred. It is from this system that people created Angel Numbers. This is believed to be spirit guides, communicating with us using numbers to give a message.
Numerology takes your name or date of birth and reduces the numbers down to single digits that reveal your personality. Each number is said to hold different qualities and characteristics which would be able to explain why you do or do not like particular things in your life. Understanding these numbers will also help you in discovering what areas of your life are out of balance.
When it comes to figuring out your birthday and its numerology meaning, the process is fairly simple. If, for example, your birthday is September 20, 1975 you would need to add all these numbers together to get one single number. 9 + 2 + 0 + 1 +9 + 7 + 5 = 33. You need to keep add the first and last numbers to each other until you get one single digit: 3 + 3 = 6. In this example, this person’s number is 6. Understanding the meaning behind the number 6 will explain a key personality along with positives and negatives that can be worked on.
