Numerology: The science of how numbers affect us
Topic Editor: Lois T. Martin, Numerologist
Numerologically Speaking – An Introduction
By Lois Martin
My name is Lois T. Martin and I have been a practicing numerologist for the past 35 years. I have been accepted for the fourth term in the prestigious Association De Numerologues in the United Kingdom as a personal consultant and the only American. I continue to learn and educate at the same time finding that this science called numerology is a non-stop fascination.
Pythagoras the famous philosopher and mathematician, was fascinated with the stars (astrology and numerology were one science at one time!) And the relationships between numbers in every area of life. He is considered one of the founders of numerology and established an esoteric school in Italy carefully selecting his students. According to his findings, the odd numbers were male , active and creative and the even numbers, female, receptive and passive. The numbers 1 through 9 have their own specific character which is used in description today in modern numerology.
Based on this mathematical system, our names at birth, present day name and birth date, translate to behavioral characteristics by numbering in where it is necessary to reduce negative emotions, increase feelings of wellness in self esteem, improving on inter-relationships, viewing upcoming events with the awareness on achieving the desired objectives and meeting the opposition with a developed positive attitude. Imagine all this data from letters in our names and date of birth!
Lets face it, everything around our daily lives is based on numbers. Our daily time schedules, house numbers, social security numbers, lunar cycles and we can go and on.
In order to numerlogically analyze names, places., etc., letters are substituted with numbers. All double-digit numbers get reduced to a single digit. For example, a , the first letter, equals #1 b equals 2 c equals 3 etc. Below is a number guide you can follow to figure your numbers.
Meaning of numbers: this being a generalization of positive and negative traits of each number are as follows:
#1-ambitious, leader, independence, original, bullying, stubborn selfishness
#2-peacemaker, teacher, therapist, shy, sensitive, worrier
#3-creative, artistic, enthusiastic, expressive, jealous, scatters energy, talkative
#4-organizer, manager, hard worker practical, fixed opinions, workaholic lazy
#5-adventurer, traveler, inquisitive, hasty, impulsive fickle, restless
#6-responsible, caring, parent family/home important, outspoken, yenta!
#7-wisdom, analyzer, perfectionist, confusion, aloof, secretive
#8-executive/power, business minded, authority, greedy, bragger, poor judgment.
#9-humanitarian, lover of mankind, big brother, healer, traveler, difficulty in letting go, bad temper.
*In numerology, the numbers 11 and 22 are considered master numbers. On the higher meaning:
#11-idealist, speaker, inspirational, psychic, nagger, worrier
#22-master builder, diplomat, service to mankind, impatient, resents authority, abuses power.
If ones birthday or any part of the name chart totals an 11 or 22 you must look to the reduced digit first.. 2 & 4, then you can climb the ladder to the higher vibrations.
Your first name total indicates how you converse with others.
Your full name total indicates your talents and goals.
Vowels indicate your hearts desires/wants
The consonants show the outer personality and how you present yourself to others
Ok. Start practicing!!
Familiarize yourself with the number and letter values. Figure your name. Starting with the birth certificate name first. Then use the name you use now. We do not use Sr., Jr., I, II, or baptismal names, only what appears on the birth certificate.
Soon to follow we will go over the description of the letters and some of their shapes!
Do you have a numerology question? Feel free to ask me here!
Blessings and numbers up!
