Section 4-3 - Spiritual meaning of the Numbers
The guides use numbers to draw our attention to unrecognized issues, or to give us some positive feedback. If more than one digit is shown, ask your guide the following questions:
  • Does it need to be reduced to one digit? (e.g., 123 would reduce to 6 by adding 1 + 2 + 3)
  • Does each digit have a specific meaning?

If a Master number is found during the reduction process, ask your guide to tell you the intended meaning.


Here is the numerical value of the English alphabet letters:
a = 1 b = 2 c = 3 d = 4 e = 5 f = 6 g = 7 h = 9 i = 9
j = 10 k = 11 l = 12 m = 13 n = 14 o = 15 p = 16 q = 17 r = 18
s = 19 t = 20 u = 21 v = 22 w = 23 x = 24 y = 25 z = 26  


Suggested interpretations for the numbers zero (0) through thirty eight (38) are listed below. Be sure to ask your guide for the Universe's intended meaning for you.
