I am obsessed with numbers. Numbers of books sold, numbers of calories consumed, numbers of visitors to my blog, number of heartbeats in a minute…you get the point. Numbers make me tick and make me CRAZY! I am also obsessed with numerology but you already know I am into all things ‘new agey’ like tarot cards and horoscopes. So, the numerology probably isn’t a surprise to you. My book even features some numerology. In fact, if you have read the numerology part you need to know that I fell into that. After I finished writing most of the story, I picked numbers that I thought fit the characters’ personalities and when I looked for info on how they would relate to each other, I found the section that’s in the book. And if you’ve read it, you know the whole thing was meant to be because it describes them perfectly. There was a lot of fate in how it all happened but I don’t want to give any details of the book away by explaining it further. Last night I posted a question on Facebook asking if anyone wanted me to figure out their number. The response was great! So I thought I would do a little DIY numerology session on the blog.
Figuring out your number is simple. First, you take your birthdate – we’ll use mine as an example – 05-10-1972 and write it down in the format I used. Add the digits in the month together – 0+5=5. Next, add the digits in the date together – 1+0=1. Add the digits in the year together – 1+9+7+2=19.
You have to add the digits together until you get a single digit. In my example, my month and days are as consolidated as possible. I need to add the 1+9 together in the year to get a 10. Still need to break it down to add the 1+0 to get a 1. Then I take all the single digits and add them together – 5+1+1=7. And voila, I am a 7. Some numerologists do not add a 22 or an 11 together. That’s your choice. I think the 11 carries some of the qualities of a 2 so I like to say people are a little of both.
I figured out the corresponding numbers for my whole family back to my grandparents. It was amazing. I was looking for patterns and found that Eva and her two grandmothers are the same number…not really a surprise. Justin and my dad are the same number….hmmmm interesting. I’m sure Freud would have something to say about that! I was a little surprised that I did not have a match in my family especially with my grandmothers. But I do have matches with my friends which is really cool.
So, what does it all mean? Well, I have spent some time on some websites gathering information and learning about what the different numbers signify. Here are my favorite websites: Numerology.com, ofesite.com, and Token Rock.
Feel free to let me know what you find. I’d love to hear your stories with numerology. Maybe I’ll share what I had hoped to find with you one of these days….
