Science of Numbers


Numerology is the Science of Numbers. The word Numerology comes from the Latin word “numerus,” which means number, and the Greek word “logos,” which means word, thought, and expression. Numerology influences every aspect of your life. It creates the blueprint of your future, and it can open the doors to unveiling your own deeper nature, and more.


Your unique combination of numbers created by your name and birthdate can be translated into a personalized Numerology chart. This chart can provide insight into finding your way on life’s journey by offering guidance, identifying your strengths, and understanding your challenges. Learn more about yourself and others, your relationships, compatibilities, finances, and career. Understand yourself at a deeper level by discovering how your personal Numerology affects your destiny. You might say that Numerology is like a mirror that reflects your life’s journey in the form of numbers.


Three Recognized Versions of Numerology
Before you begin this journey of self-discovery through numbers, it’s important to know that there are three formal versions of Numerology in use today; the Chaldean, the Kabbalah, and the Pythagorean or Western number systems. Each version calculates your personal information differently, and therefore gives you a different interpretation of your life. The accuracy of your reading will depend on which system produces your chart and reading. The three number systems are described below:

Chaldean Numerology
The Chaldean Number SystemIn our opinion, the Chaldean Number System is the most accurate system of Numerology known today, as proven consistently by the tens of thousands of readings done for people over the past few decades.Chaldean Numerology was originally developed in Ancient Babylon and assigns the number value by sound as compared to the Western system, which assigns the number value by the sequence of the Western alphabet. The Chaldean number system uses a number formula based on calculating 1 – 8 vs. the Western number system of calculating 1 – 9. The “9” in Chaldean Numerology is considered to be a holy number and therefore is kept apart from other vibrations, except when it results as the sum of vibrations (e.g., from an individual’s complete name). In addition, compound numbers are always used. Single digits represent the “outer” aspects of a person, while double digits reveal the “inner” influences.


Documented long-term research by many authors has continued to validate the accuracy of Chaldean Numerology above all the recognized number systems available today. This system will provide you with the most accurate blueprint of your destiny

The Kabbalah Number System (which means knowledge that comes from the mind and soul rather than through a human being or a teacher) originated in Hebrew mysticism, and interprets only the meaning of the name. The Kabbalah system was developed for the Hebrew alphabet, and therefore has only 22 vibrations ranging from 1 to 400. It was adapted for the Greek alphabet, then further adapted for the Roman alphabet.

This form of Numerology calculates only the name and does not take into consideration the name and birthdate together. Because the Kabbalah system uses only part of the formula needed to construct your destiny blueprint, it is not as accurate as the Chaldean number system.

The Pythagorean or Western Number SystemThe Pythagorean or Western number system was thought to have been discovered by Pythagoras, the famous Greek philosopher, mystic, mathematician, and astronomer in the period 600 B.C. However, from some earlier recordings, the origins of Numerology may even have predated Pythagoras.

Pythagoras taught that there was a definite relationship of numbers to one’s total life experience. He studied under the Jewish Mystics and the Gurus of India and had been initiated into many of the mysteries of the spiritual teachers of the East and had both used and taught their system of numbers. Later on in life, he founded a school to pass on the mystical sciences to Western students that was based on knowledge from his travels and learned studies. The school was run by a religious brotherhood on the basis of a belief system derived from mathematics, astronomy, physics and philosophy.

Unfortunately, very little of his teachings survived other than a story told by Philolaus, a student believed to have studied under Pythagoras. It is suspected that after Pythagoras’ death, Philolaus declared that a certain system of numbers (we assume his) had been developed and blessed by Pythagoras before his death. Philolaus proclaimed Pythagoras as the “Father” of Western Numerology and for over 2,500 years, people accepted this declaration as valid since there was never any evidence to disprove this claim.



Kabbalah Numerology

The Kabbalah Number System (which means knowledge that comes from the mind and soul rather than through a human being or a teacher) originated in Hebrew mysticism, and interprets only the meaning of the name. The Kabbalah system was developed for the Hebrew alphabet, and therefore has only 22 vibrations ranging from 1 to 400.

This form of Numerology calculates only the name and does not take into consideration the name and birthdate together. Because the Kabbalah system uses only part of the formula needed to construct your destiny blueprint, it is not as accurate as the Chaldean number system.

Western Numerology

Pythagoras was known as the “Father” of Western Numerology

The Pythagorean or Western Number SystemThe Pythagorean or Western number system was thought to have been discovered by Pythagoras, the famous Greek philosopher, mystic, mathematician, and astronomer in the period 600 B.C. However, from some earlier recordings, the origins of Numerology may even have predated Pythagoras.

Pythagoras taught that there was a definite relationship of numbers to one’s total life experience. He studied under the Jewish Mystics and the Gurus of India and had been initiated into many of the mysteries of the spiritual teachers of the East and had both used and taught their system of numbers.

Philolaus proclaimed Pythagoras as the “Father” of Western Numerology and for over 2,500 years, people accepted this declaration as valid since there was never any evidence to disprove this claim.

The Western number system assigns the number value by the sequence of the Western alphabet and uses a number formula based on calculating 1 – 9. Years of experience prove that this method is not as accurate as the Chaldean method. The Western alphabet assignment totally discounts the most important aspect of numerology–the concept of vibration and the numerical designation of each vibrational pattern. As a result, the Western number system virtually destroys the validity of the name numbers (or any other name number) and their meaning. What Western Numerology fails to acknowledge is the fact that the language of the numbers, coming off our name, gives us the most important facts about the direction in which our lives are unfolding.

Summary

Numerology is a respected and ancient “science” that defines who you are and what your destiny is by using numbers in a certain way. The Chaldean number system uses the unique vibrations of the numbers calculated from your name and birthdate to provide insight and to assist you in living a more successful and meaningful life.

Our intent is make you aware that this science exists and to offer an easy way to utilize Numerology to enhance your life by gaining more understanding into your personality, your strengths and talents, obstacles to overcome, inner needs, emotional reactions, understanding others, relationships, and more. In short, self-knowledge is the “key” to a greater perspective on life and preparing you for the future, keeping in mind that ultimately you must make the final choices.

We believe we are providing you with the most accurate readings possible based on years of feedback through consultations using the Chaldean number system. However, there is no information or system that is infallible. Readings are always subordinate to the individual’s belief system and their power to choose who they are now and what they would like to become. The ultimate results depend solely on the past, present and future actions, thoughts, and way of life of the person concerned.
