Numerology, at its simplest, is the belief and study of number and how it relates to our life path. For those who believe our lives are charted out before birth, this knowledge is useful for them to learn and fulfill their desired path.
Many people believe there is a mystical connection between numbers and events or incidents that happen in one’s life. It’s thought that each person is born with a number assigned to them through some mystical process, and it holds sway over a person’s whole life.
The rise in this belief could be in part due to the universal use of math to explain the universe. It’s also interesting to note that many cultures assigned a numeral value to letters or characters that make up their language. Both the Chinese and Arabian cultures have their own numeric system. The practice within The Jewish tradition to assign mystical meaning to words based on their numerical values, and on connections between words of equal value, is known as gematria. Christianity sees numerology and other forms of divination as evil, yet there is one number they all strongly believe is associated with evil or the devil. I always found this rather odd.
There is a number for everything in your life; career, romance, life path. If you are one of the believers, it’s quite staggering how numbers have such an influence over our lives. There are several different ways to learn the numerology numbers that hold sway over you; one is adding the numbers up in your birthdate, and the other deals with the letters in your name. Both are fun to learn and it’s surprising how the resulting information can be accurate.
Whether or not you believe in numerology, you have to admit that numbers are an important part of our lives. Math is the language of the universe, and perhaps, that is the reason numerology is so popular with those looking to understand what meaning their life has.
