Numerology – the study of numbers and their connection to life patterns – fascinated me for many years. I came across a book, Numerology and the Divine Triangle which explained the Pythagorean theory of numbers. Like a psychic detective, I set out to uncover the mysteries of life, hoping, as we all do, to gain enlightenment and ultimately a modicum of control.
Of course, that is an illusion. Still, my awareness of numbers and patterns has never really subsided. This week’s challenge, for example, is #44 – a master number – supposedly noteworthy.
In numerology, 0 – 9 are the important numbers, and all other numbers can be reduced within this range. For example, to find your life path number you would add together birth month, date, and year like so:
(July) = 7
(25) = 2 +5 = 7
(1958) = 1+9+5+8 = 23 or 2+3 = 5
Total 7 +7 +5 = 19 = 1+9 = 10 = 1
So my life path number is 1.
(Token Rock has a life path calculator if my illustration is too complicated.)
Whether Numerology interests you or not, think about the numbers that have reappeared in your life. For example, throughout my marriage to my former husband, every house we lived in (and there were many) the house numbers added up to 3. Coincidence?
As always, I look forward to your answers.
