Numerology is one of the oldest sciences of symbols. It began when life begun because life is vibration, consciousness, and each number is a vibration of consciousness. Numbers represent universal principles through which all things evolve and develop following growing cycles, they are a law unto itself which never deviates from the principle undelying the law that governs it. The digits from 1 to 9 are therefore, an expression of the passages needed to realization of an idea or concept and represent absolute truths because each of them is the symbol for a specific manifesting energy.
Plato used to refer to it as "the highest level of wisdom" and Phythagoras talked about it as 'the essence of the cosmic and inner harmony'. There are no two identical numbers and each of us is imbued with the characteristics of the number he was born with, carrying the consciousness, the qualities and the life experiences that belong to that number.
Numbers have a role in our lives, they are the transparent building blocks (transparent because they are concepts) of the manifestation of the mystery of life. From the moment we are born, we are given a time of birth, a date of birth, and count our years alive in numbers . Each number has its own individual vibration and meaning and, if we are open to it, it becomes a "doorway" on our history and on our soul. They support us in reconnecting with the energy behind existence in a way that allows us to see the energy pattern behind form and understand the spiritual significance and orderly progression of the manifestation of all things.
When we learn to meet and know them, we can start to see the patterns and the cycles, and make sense of where we have been, where we are, and might yet be. Therefore, we understand the 'impulse', the 'heartbeat' of our own life. from understanding comes wholeness, peace of mind and compassion.
Numerology offers the possibility to remove ourselves from the sea of illusions and to walk the clear path up the mountain of self-realization. Each number is an expression of the quality of life we lead.
The understanding of their relationship and procession in our chart can provide great help in explaining the difficulties of the past or present circumstances and therefore ease them greatly by helping us to take steps of least resistance.
Numerology is a tool which allows us to develop our intuition and it is valuable to anyone who is interested in the art of healing, business, personal relationship, career choices and everyday life decisions because it is a means through which we can go back to our deepest memory and see the pattern of our life from the Soul point of view.
In this way we can transform a crisis into learning process and offer ourselves a new way of observing our life. Numbers are therefore, great teachers because their effectiveness occurs when they open the way to the view and the potential of the soul.
