Numerology is the study of the symbolism, frequency and influence of numbers.  It is a spiritual tool that shows us that nothing is random. That our existence here is part of something grander than ourselves and that everything in the Universe is intricately connected.  It can be traced back to ancient civilizations and to the work of Pythagoras and his belief that musical notes have their own number associations and patterns. It is based in physics which tells us that everything in the Universe is energy and has its own vibration or frequency that can be measured with numbers.  These individual and unique frequencies draw specific characteristics, circumstances and experiences to them allowing us to see a predictable pattern within each number.  

Modern Numerology gives us an organized way to use the patterns of each number to better understand ourselves and the events happening in the world.  These numbers give us information about our own personal Numerology, our own personal frequency and how we show up in the world and the circumstances in our lives. It also gives us information about the energy or frequencies that are affecting all of us Universally.   

Although this amazing and empowering tool can be used in so many ways in our everyday lives, the most popular use is through our own personal Numerology derived from our birth date and our name at birth (letters have their own frequency). Our personal Numerology gives us specific information about our soul’s plan for us in this lifetime.  It is based on the belief that we chose to come to earth at this time of great evolution and expansion to grow as souls. Our personal Numerology tells us who we are and what we came to accomplish, what our strengths and challenges are and how to overcome them. It explains what energy is influencing us daily and how to use it to our advantage.

When we want to understand the energy that is influencing all of us as a collective on earth, we first look at the Universal Year Number.  This number is calculated by adding together the numbers of the year that we are in. For instance, 2+0+1+9 = 12 and 1+2=3. This means that for the year 2019 we are being influenced by 3 energy.  The 3 Universal Year creates a certain theme that we have all been navigating through as a collective. This 3 energy encourages us to communicate with clarity from a more heartfelt intention and vision.  It’s about self-expression, creativity and joy. It asks us how we are showing up in the world and how we have been out of alignment with who we truly are as individuals and as a humanity. With this understanding of the energy available, we are able to make powerful changes in our own lives and in the world.  

Numerology is influencing everything in our lives all day, every day.  Understanding how it works and how it affects us individually and universally will give us the ability to create our daily experiences more intentionally. It allows us to trust in ourselves, our soul’s plan and something grander than ourselves.
