Section 4-3 - Spiritual meaning of the Numbers
As always, be sure to ask your guide for the Universe's intended message for you.
Do you have a favourite number? Do you know what it means? Do you ever see a number repeating in your everyday experiences? Numerology is the study of the spiritual relationship between numbers and events in our lives. The guides use numbers to draw our attention to unrecognized issues, or to give us positive or negative feedback. If more than one digit is shown, ask your guide if the number needs to be reduced to one digit to find the required message. If it does not, then look at the meaning of each digit individually.

Find your Life Path number from your birth date. Let's use December 31, 2017 as an example:
Month: 12 (December): (1 + 2) = 3
Day: 31: (3 + 1) = 4
Year: 2017: (2 + 0 + 1 + 7) = 10 = 1
This reduces as 3 + 4 + 1 = 8

In numerology, a numerical value is also assigned to the letters of the alphabet. The theory is that each letter, by virtue of the number it represents, has a specific vibrational_frequency.

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 = 8i = 9
j = 10k = 11l = 12m = 13n = 14o = 15p = 16 q = 17r = 18
s = 19t = 20u = 21v = 22w = 23x = 24y = 25z = 26  

Here is the method of calculating a Destiny number from a full name:
