Growing up in a rather strict and very religious Roman Catholic household, the idea of clairvoyance and parapsychology was not something I was allowed to entertain. In fact, numerology and astrology wasn’t looked on with much enthusiasm either; although I still took all those online tests and read my horoscope on a daily basis. I don’t live my life according to the Daily Horoscope that pops up on my Facebook wall, it’s just silly; but I still hold an interest in clairvoyance.
When I left home I decided to enter the performing arts, much to my father’s disgust and disgrace. I wanted to become an artist and live in a land of bright colors and acoustic guitars; although the reality is a box room with constant traffic outside the window. Anyway, I still have my interest in clairvoyance and parapsychology, and I took it one step further when I finally lived on my own.
See, I always wanted to see a psychic; to actually be in one’s presence and feel their aura. I didn’t know what I was going to say or what was going to happen, but I knew it was going to be special. My friends laughed at me, but I knew that $30 for a half hour was worth something.
I did my research and made sure the woman I was visiting wasn’t a con artist. She was a registered member with the professional psychic association – yes, there really is a professional psychic association; it isn’t something I made up. Plus, she is registered to provide clairvoyant readings to the public as a registered business. So, I felt secure that I wasn’t about to be duped.
It was a stormy night, pretty much perfect for clairvoyance readings, and I was so excited! I knew that psychics are supposedly able to ‘see into the future’ so I had some questions about my life situation and where I should head from here. Of course, I wanted to record the session because she could provide some useful information; but I forgot my tape recorder and my mobile phone had died. It is important to determine whether you are allowed to tape the session beforehand because some clairvoyants prefer the clairvoyant readings are not taped.
Anyway, I entered the room and it was all colors with scarves and incense. I was over the moon; this was exactly what I wanted! I knew that not all clairvoyants had a setting like this, but I’m happy she did. She said she was a bohemian, but I think she just liked playing up to the stereotype of mystic clairvoyant readings with incense in the background.
I had my questions and we worked through them one by one, sort of. The aura was incredible and I left feeling enlightened. While I knew she had provided me with some answers to my situation, I also knew that the prediction she gave was by no means set in stone. Clairvoyants are not fatalistic and they don’t take away your free will; it’s up to you how or if you get to the setting they predict. I do hope my prediction comes true.
Every person has a personal numerology which will indicate the personality, the inherited skills and likely challenges that will be required to be faced in life. The core number is the birth day number and is the day that a person is born. This birth day number defines the person and the talents that he or she is likely to have. Every number brings up its own numerology meanings and can help a person to know his or her own strengths and weaknesses which in turn can make it far easier to get through life.
The History of Numerology
Numerology meanings make up a form of self help and the western form was first used by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras. It is known as the Pythagorian system and combines the sciences evolved by Essene, Egyptian, Phoenicain, Druid and Arabic civilizations. It has continually evolved since then and has led to the formation of many secret societies that use this method of numerology to help their members to take decisions. Numerology meanings are used regularly to decide on romantic liaisons, take important life decisions, predict events and help people gain a deeper understanding of themselves and also of events unfolding in the universe. It has continued to fascinate people even in this age of computerization and is considered a spiritual science which has many practitioners.
Core Numbers Which Indicate Numerology Meanings
You start life with the Birth Day number, and this is the date on which you are born, and is not in any way influenced by the month or year of birth. This number will define the talents that a person has and will always find its way into the events that a person has to go through in life. It is considered an insignificant number compared to the other core numbers, but does decide the gifts that any person will possess.
The most important number in any Numerology chart is the Life Path number, as this outlines the way a person’s life will pan out. All challenges and opportunities that a person faces are influenced by this number, as well as the general character that he or she will have. This number is worked out by reducing each unit of the birth date to a single digit number. The life path is considered a cycle that runs through three long terms. The first cycle is influenced by the number of the month of birth, the second the number of the day of birth and the final cycle is governed by the number of the year of birth. The Expression number also called the destiny number indicates the strengths and weaknesses that you get at birth. It decides your final destiny in life and the foundation that can allow it to flourish. Each letter of the alphabet has a set value ranging from 1 to 9 and the full name, first, middle and last is allotted these numbers to decide on the single digit for each of them. Master numbers 11, 22 and 33 are not reduced further. A name represents a personal history that is inherited while first names are based on the intuitions of the parents. The Expression number is an indicator of talents, abilities and shortcomings of a person.
The Personality number indicates the first impression that people will have of a person. It is derived from the consonants in a person’s name and can determine the openness or secretiveness of a person. It is an indicator of the inner nature. The Heart’s Desire number will decide on the reasoning behind a person’s actions. This number will decide the choices you make through life whether in career or relationships. It is derived from the vowels within the name. It is said, that most vowels are soft sounding and therefore are an indication of subconscious desires that decide how the mind works.
The science of numerology gives meanings to names and numbers and every number has forms that are both positive and negative. It is very essential that any reading of these numbers takes into account both these traits. This way while you take advantage of the positive traits you need to be constantly aware of the negative traits that can become a hindrance and must be guarded against. Numerology can help a person to understand mistakes whether in relationships, career or other aspects of life.
Is the science of numerology a proven and correct one? This is very difficult to establish, because most of its public perception is based on the interpretation that practitioners put on the numbers. These numbers remain constant and will not change, unless a name is changed. There are numerologists who do suggest such name changes in order to change the direction of a person’s life, but the efficacy of such changes can never be guaranteed.
