The Life Path Number is derived from your birth date and it provides important information about the challenges and opportunities you will encounter during your lifetime.
You came here into this life with a special purpose and with the desire to experience and express more of your inherent potential and god-like nature.
However, it's important to understand hat your life is not determined by your numbers, but only by your past actions - everything in life is governed by the simple law of cause and effect.
Actions you take today (thoughts and emotions are actions as well) determine and create your tomorrow. Also, there is nothing or no one wanting to hurt or punish you for whatever you do neither life, god nor the universe.
The law of cause and effect is necessary to maintain the orderliness of the universe and it's also the only possibility for us to realize our true nature and our full potential.
Numerology is only a tool that helps us to better understand all the connections and correlations in our life and through this understanding we can move on much quicker and with less effort.
In short, your Life Path Number describes the path you are travelling on. It doesn't tell you so much about your talents, strengths or weaknesses, but rather indicates the general purpose of your life - your life's destiny.
Further, it reveals also important information about the challenges you might have to face and the lessons to be learned.
Your life path doesn't necessarily correspond to what you really want and desire.
For many people it's even the case that at first they can't relate at all to their life path number. They often might have a reaction like: "No, that's not me at all ".
But remember, your life path indicates your mission, the things you want to integrate into your being. This is an assignment that lasts your whole life, it requires a lot of work and can be very demanding and challenging.
However, fulfilling your destiny will also become your greatest source of happiness. On the other hand, you might feel a lot of inner pressure and even frustration as long as you are not taking on this responsibility fulfilling your destiny.
Your Life Path Number is probably the most important number in your chart. And when you meditate on the deeper meaning of this number for your life, you will realize the reason why you came here into this world and that's the first and most important step towards fulfilling your destiny. and this will also fill your life with love, abundance and happiness without even requiring any further effort.
To calculate your Life Path Number, do the following:
Add the single digits of your day of birth until you arrive at a number between 1 and 9 or at one of the master numbers: 11 or 22.
For example, if your day of birth is the 15th, you get 1 + 5 = 6 ; or if your day of birth is the 29th , you get 2 + 9 = 11 , which is no further reduced, because 11 is a master number.
Next, reduce your month of birth to a single digit this applies only for the months October (10 = 1+0 = 1) and December (12 = 1+2 = 3). 11 is not reduced because it's a master number.
Now reduce your birth year to a single digit (again, 11 and 22 are not reduced). For example, if you were born in 1965, you would get: 1+9+6+5 = 21 = 2+1 = 3
Finally, you get your Life Path Number by adding up all 3 single digits (or master numbers) you calculated above and by reducing the result to a single digit number. Again, the master numbers 11 and 22 are not reduced.
Here is a complete example:
The life path number for someone born on the 29th of MAY 1970 would be 6 :
In the section Meaning of the Numbers, I provide some basic information about the meaning of the numbers. The descriptions are general and not specifically targeted towards the life path number, but they will help you to better understand the meaning of your life path or destiny.
However, words are always limited and they can provide only basic guidance in the realization of your inner truth. Deep within you already know the path that leads to happiness and the fulfilment of your destiny.
Numerology is like a bridge, it points you into the right direction, but the rest of the path you will have to walk alone.
Make use of your god-given gifts and talents and you can't fail.
No matter who you are and what your current circumstances are like, you can be absolutely assured that you possess all the talents you need to achieve fulfilment, happiness and abundance.
I recommend you meditate on what your Life Path Number means for YOU.
Choose a quiet spot and take a few minutes or as long as you want to meditate on the deeper meaning of your Life Path Number. Use your head (intellect), but also your heart (intuition).
Do this little exercise every day, or at least every few days for a few weeks. After some practice, you will get lots of little but important realisations concerning your life path and destiny.
These realizations come when you go within, but it's also very possible that they happen when you least expect them. Be sure to make some notes of your insights.
