Numerology Numeric Patterns For Divination
Numerology is system of beliefs that may appeal to people who crave order
and a systematic explanation for why and how things occur. This system
seeks to interpret and establish numeric patterns in relation to the
occurrence of daily events. Those who follow numerology use numbers to
explain the past, but also in an effort to predict the future.
The base of numerology is the unique combination of numbers that is
created by using your name and birthday. You can use these number to
create a numerology chart that is specific to you. Use your numerology
chart to help you find hints about the paths that you should take as you
make the decisions that will lead you through the ups and downs of life.
While the numerology chart may not give you specific details about
decisions that are to be made, it can give you insights into who you are
and your traits and characteristics. Armed with this new knowledge,
you'll have a strong base from which to make the decisions that will make
up the ebb and flow of your life.
Just as there are variations in many systems of thought, numerology also
has variations. These are mainly based on where the system has its roots
and how it grew. These systems have come to be recognized in three
different schools of thought. Chaldean, Kabbalah, and the Pythagorean
systems all have unique ways of calculating your personal information,
and thus, will differ in the numbers that they produce for you.
Obviously, with different numbers come different means of interpreting
Chaldean Numerology was developed in Ancient Babylon. Unlike Western
systems, it is not entirely objective and it determines the numbers
values based on sound. The number 9 is considered to be the holiest
number in Chaldean Numerology and is kept separate from the number 1-8.
In Chaldean Numerology you will also find that they always use compound
numbers. Any single number represents the outer levels of a person while
all double digit numbers shed light on a person's inner workings.
The Kabbalah system of numerology finds its roots in Hebrew mysticism.
This system is unique because it is only concerned with interpreting the
name. One doesn't have to look very far to understand the depth of
meaning that names carry in the ancient Hebrew culture. The Kabbalah
system was originally designed to be used with the Hebrew alphabet, which
only has 22 letters. Later, it was adapted to encompass the Greek
alphabet and eventually the Roman alphabet. Since it is only concerned
with the name, Kabbalah numerology does not utilize the birth date when
calculating the personal number. Most purists believe that Kabbalah then,
is missing half of your identity in its interpretations, and cannot be as
accurate as the Chaldean method.
The Pythagorean system of numerology is generally credited to the
mathematician Pythagoras. Also known as the Western number system, modern
research however, will show that some aspects of this system actually
predate Pythagoras. What he taught was that there is a definable
relationship between numbers and the sum of one's life experiences.
Pythagoras spent time learning his methods under Hebrew mystics as well
as the spiritual leaders of ancient India. His ability to incorporate
these Eastern influences with his Western mathematical logic made him a
unique pioneer in the fields of philosophy, mathematics, and even
Though Pythagoras made great strides in the study of numerology, the
discipline that carries his name is more of a hybrid than something he
created. It is for this reason that many choose to refer to Pythagorean
numerology as Western numerology. Thus recognizing its roots in logic,
but not recognizing Pythagoras as its creator.
