Life Path Number


There are many different books out there on numerology and on what can be derived from a date of birth and a person’s name. What I want to focus on is the life path number and how to balance and attune yourself with your own personal path. The soul does choose when to be born and what lessons it is going to learn in this lifetime. By understanding and knowing your own life path number, you will gain insights as to why certain conflicts and repeating themes continuously occur. You can then learn how to best deal with these occurrences. Many of these are not always pleasant either. By knowing your life path number or the number of a spouse or child, you can have great insights how to overcome and avoid these unpleasant themes or conflicts. The life path number is a breakdown of the total sum of an individual’s birth-date. From this number one can receive insights as to what life experiences or themes will be challenging, and repetitive. Balance Your Life Path Numerology is my book on the life path number. This book explains how to live a more balanced life based on that knowledge.

Teutonic Numerology

Teutonic is a word that was once used to denote a specific Germanic tribe, but now encompasses a heritage that includes much of Northern Europe including Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Iceland. This is mainly due to the travels of the Teutonic people and the spread of their wisdom.

Teutonic numerology is different from western numerology and has a different spiritual meaning of numbers in that counting worked on a base 12 system. Therefor the concept of perfect numbers is shifted to 12 and its multiples. In Teutonic numerology the numbers have specific meanings that usually correspond with rune magic.

One – represents the prime source and is the end of the synthesizing process

Two – represents duality, twins and active balance

Three – One of the first magical numbers of the Teutonic people. Three represents action and reaction. It represents the synthesis of opposites.

Four – this is the number of stability, completeness, and the wholeness of Earth. It bears reference to the four dwarves who forged Freya’s necklace. It is also associated with the sun.

Five – The Germanic week was only five days long. Five is a number of active order and control

Six – It is another magical number, representing the balance of two and the synthesis of three, but is not mentioned much in Teutonic mythology

Seven – This number is not mentioned much in the myths, but some believe it can be a number of death and can be used for contact with other worlds.

Eight – Represents the completeness of the Heavens and the otherworlds. It is the number of travel between the worlds being associated with Sleipnir. It is a number of wholeness. There are 3 sets of 8 runes that make up the elder futhark.

Nine – This is the greatest magical number. Odhinn hangs nine nights on the tree Yggdrasil. There are also nine worlds in Teutonic belief. It is a number of power and direction.

Ten and Eleven have very little meaning in Teutonic numerology

Twelve – Another number of great wholeness and being. There are 12 Gods and 12 Goddesses and 12 great halls of Asgard. Twelve is a number of earthly power

Thirteen – This is a number of wisdom and magical power.

Spiritual Meaning Of Numbers

Numerology is a term for the ancient study of numbers and how they relate to our lives. It is a philosophy that has many influences that are thousands of years old. There are three main forms of numerology in use today. They are Western – Pythagorean, Chaldean, and Hebrew-Kabbalah. They are different in specific ways. The Chaldean and Western systems are based on numerical interpretations of a letters position in the alphabet. The Kabbalah method is derived from a letters sound. The Western and Kabbalah methods use the numbers 1-9 and the Chaldean method only uses the numbers 1- 8, as the number 9 is held to have sacred significance.

The Chaldean number system arose in the Persian Gulf area in what used to be called Babylonia. In the Chaldean system the letters of the alphabet are assigned as follows: (9 is not used)

1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8

A  B  C  D  E  U  O  F

I  K  G  M  H  V  Z  P

J  R  L  T  N  W

Q     S     X


Kabbalah or Qabala Numerology arose out of Jewish mysticism. In this practice, it is believed that the Torah -the first books of the Hebrew Bible, contained hidden meanings. It was the belief that these hidden meanings could be interpreted using Kabbalah numerology and the true holy teachings could be understood. It was originally structured around the Hebrew alphabet which only has 22 letters. It has since been modified twice for the Greek alphabet which contains 24 letters and for the Roman alphabet which contains 26. In the Kabbalah method, unlike the Chaldean and Western systems, only the letters of the name are used and they are not combined with the birth-date.

The Western or Pythagorean numerology has roots to the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras. He felt as though the universe could be expressed numerically. The Western system assigns the letters of the alphabet as follows:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
The Ancient Chinese had an ancient text known as the I Ching -“Book Of Changes” or “Classic of Changes”. The book is based on a symbol system that is used  much like numerology to understand natural and personal events. It was well established during the Zhou Dynasty and many believe that Confucius is responsible for later additions.
The Ancient Egyptians believed that certain numbers had spiritual significance, especially the numbers 2, 3, 4, 7 . These concepts were included in the “Book of the Dead”.
The Mayans were also very accomplished mathematicians and had strong religious views on the relationship between nature and numbers. The Mayans used a base 20 system as opposed to a base ten system.
There is frequent mention of numbers being significant in the Bible. In Christianity, the God entity symbolized the number one. The Lord God is referred to as “The One”. Other numbers with a common occurrence in the Bible are 2, 3, 4, 7, 12, and 40.
In modern numerology there are concepts such as: Life Path Number or Soul number, personality number or destiny number and personal year and personal month. These are the concepts that are used when a psychic reading by numbers is given.

What is Numerology

Numerology is the study of numbers, but a psychic reading can be done using numerology. Just like in astrology, a personal numerology reading is a breakdown of an individual’s personal numbers or life path number, which are derived from ones birth-date and or name. From these numbers one can receive insight as to what life experiences or themes will be challenging, and repetitive. These numbers also give insights as to what natural abilities a person may have as well. Some believe that a soul chooses when to be born and therefore, one could derive a life path number representing the life’s purpose or journey for the soul.
The life path number (or soul number) is derived by taking one’s entire birth-date -month ,day,and year and adding its sum. Then from that sum, reducing it to a single number.
For example:
A birth-date of  July 5th 1990 would be derived as follows
7+5+ 1+9+9+0=31
The 31 then becomes 3+1 =4  and 4 would represent the life number.
The same procedure can be done for one’s name.
Each letter has a number that corresponds with it.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
 For example:
Joe Smith would be
1+6+5(Joe)  + 1+4+9+2+8(Smith)= 12(Joe)+24(Smith)
1+2+2+4 =9
9 would be Joe Smith’s personality number.
This number would give insights into Joe’s personality.
Numbers are considered to have particular energy traits or vibrational patterns assigned to them. The metaphysical traits are as follows:
1-Individuality, will, ego
2-Cooperation, peace
3-Creativity, self expression
4-Discipline, work
5-Freedom, change, free will
6-Service, responsibility
7-Wisdom, knowledge
8-Power, authority
The life number and personality number would then be looked at extensively as it pertained to the individual. By looking at the number an individual can see insights as to what conflicts, challenges, and abilities one would have in life or within his or her personality as it pertained to the number.
