I know I’m not the only one seeing repeating numbers every day. Am I? Am I crazy? I doubt it. It's fascinating.

Numerology is the study of numbers, and numbers are the language of the universe. Each number gives off a unique vibration such as intuition, love, prosperity, and protection, and also its negative aspects. Numerology is similar to Astrology.

Where astrology uses the birth date and birth time along with the planets, numerology uses the birth date and birth name along with numbers.

The idea behind both numerology and astrology is that your birth date, birth time, and birth name together is unique to you and affects your personality, your characteristics, and the journey you will take.

Can you believe something like that?

It can look complex and slightly woo-woo when you’re starting out, but it’s actually quite fun when you get into it. You don’t have to believe anything but why not be open-minded and just explore?

If you're open-minded, you can use numerology to discover insights about yourself, your purpose, and your personality. It could give you clues to what you came here to do.

Here are 5 things you need to know about numerology and numbers:

1. Repeated or Angel Numbers

Have you noticed you're seeing the same number sequence that continues to show up? Do you see 11:11, 1:11, 10:10, 12:34, 555, 222, 444, 333 etc everywhere? Feeling as if it's got something it wants to say to you?

If you are, you aren’t making it up and you aren’t crazy. Don’t listen to those who say it’s just a coincidence or that you’re on your phone too much. The numbers are trying to tell you something and they don’t lie.

It’s called angel numbers because it’s the means for angels and spirit guides to get your attention. If you see 9:11 many times in a row, you will stop and pay attention.


Angel numbers can convey important messages so don’t dismiss it! Look it up. There’s a meaning for every repeated number.

I know it’d be easier if angels and guides just showed up and said what they wanted to say, but it doesn’t work like that and besides, you’d pass/freak out if you saw these beings.

You really would!

So we get numbers, signs, and synchronicities. Once you start paying attention, you can unlock information about yourself, your life's purpose, your dreams, and your goals. Angel numbers can also tell if you are heading down a dangerous path so you can course-correct.

It can look complex and slightly woo-woo when you’re starting out, but it’s actually quite fun when you get into it. So why not be open-minded and just explore?

2. Your Life Path Number

In Numerology, your life path number is the most important number. It forms the basis of who you are and who you can become. The life path number shows you the opportunities, challenges, and lessons you may face along your journey and how best to overcome and rise above them.

It is calculated by adding the numbers in your date of birth. For example, using my birthdate 02/19/1990 to calculate my life path number would be:

(2) + (1+9) + (1+9+9+0) = (2) + (10) + (19) = (2) + (1) + (10) = (2) + (1) + (1) = 4

I added the two digits 19 together as 1+9=10 and I added the four digits 1990 together which reduced to 19 and further reduced to 10 and then to 1. This is the same with any double-digit number. You must keep adding together until you end up with a 1 digit number.

Every two-digit number is added except for the master numbers 11, 22, and 33, which are left as it is.

Master numbers are too powerful to be reduced or messed with.

From the above calculations, my life path number is 4. Once you have determined your life path number, you can then go online and search for what it says about you and your life.

Just google your life path number and you’ll be surprised how much it’ll resonate with you. If it doesn’t, well, you may be inspired.

Its equivalent in astrology, I think would be the Ascendant/Rising sign.

My life path number 4 is similar to Capricorn, my rising sign, in that they are both very hardworking, stable, and grounded. Think 4 corners of the room and 4 legs of a table or chair. Very solid.

You can check to see how your life path number is similar to your rising sign.

3. Your Expression Number

Did we really chose our names before birth and do they really dictate who we become. Who knows? But aren’t you curious?

I am. As a cat!

The expression number is also known as your destiny number which is said to dive into your unique abilities, desires, and the things you yearn to accomplish. It rules your destiny.

It is calculated by converting your full name into a number using the Pythagorean chart.

Very complicated stuff.

You could do it yourself, but I wouldn’t recommend you do that. There’s an easy way. I’ll link a website at the end of this article that calculates everything for you, and it's free. All you need to do is enter your full name, including any middle names.

Its equivalent in astrology I think is the sun sign.

4. Your Soul Urge Number

Your soul urge number is often called the heart’s desire number because it reflects your innermost desires. It symbolizes your true inner self. It represents who you want to become.

This number often tells you things you may or may not even realize about yourself. For example, growing up I always knew I wanted to be a doctor.

I wanted to help people somehow, so I went to school to become a doctor. But after my spiritual awakening, my desire to be a doctor fell apart. I still had the desire to help people, but in a much different way.

I decided to become a spiritual writer/life coach instead because I felt the spiritual side of the body is often ignored and therefore needed healers.

What do you really want to be? Not what your parents say you should be? What are you passionate about?

Your soul urge number is basically what your soul is urging you to do, and when your soul urges you to go for something, you can rest assured it’s going to be good.

And fun!

Your soul urge number can lead you to find true fulfillment in life. Its equivalent in astrology I think is the moon sign.

My moon sign is Sagittarius and nothing matters more to me than my freedom. Being a writer and coach gives me that freedom. Freedom I wouldn’t have if I became a doctor!

This number is calculated similar to the others, using the vowels in your full name. “Vowels?”You’re probably thinking it’s crazy.

It is.

If you don't mind crazy and are as curious as a cat, the link to calculate this will be at the end of the article.

5. About The Master Numbers

The numbers 11, 22, and 33 are called master numbers because they are seen as the most empowering numbers in numerology. Each number carries a unique vibration and when numbers are doubled, its energies are intensified.

When calculating your life path and other numbers, master numbers aren’t reduced to a single digit. They are left as it is.

Master numbers are too powerful to be reduced or messed with.

Numerology does not consider 44, 55, 66, etc as master numbers. Only the numbers 1, 2, and 3 are said to create the triangle of enlightenment.

People with master life path numbers often become very powerful and influential spiritual leaders. They are highly evolved beings.

On a karmic level, people with master life path numbers are said to have mastered all the other numbers in a previous lifetime and reincarnated with the purpose of improving and raising the consciousness of humanity.

Master Number 11: The Master Illuminator

11 is a sign of enormous power and people who have it often display heightened intuition, high frequency, natural intelligence, and spiritual insight. They are thought to be old souls with the ability to understand others on a deep, empathetic level.
Famous 11s: Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, Tony Robbins.

Master Number 22: The Master Builder

22 is a powerful number, and people who have it in their charts are visionary builders. They are the doers and the leaders of the world. This is the number that can turn the wildest dreams into the greatest accomplishments.
Famous 22s: the Dalai Lama, Bill Gates, Jacqueline Kennedy, Oprah Winfrey.

Master Number 33: The Master Teacher

33 is also a powerful number, and people who have it in their charts are highly creative, intelligent, and devoted to raising the consciousness of the earth. They are spiritually evolved beings sent here to transform the world’s awareness and create peace for all.
Famous 33s: John Lennon, Albert Einstein, Robert DeNiro.

Do you have a master life path number?

Final Thoughts

You can’t be biased with the numbers.

All numbers have both positive and negative aspects — just like astrology — that should be looked at. It’s tempting to only want to look at the positive aspects when interpreting numbers, but don’t ignore the negative as it also sheds some light.

For example, I see 9:11 a lot and I found its positive meaning as spiritual leadership, life purpose, and soul mission as a lightworker. But looking at the history of the number, I feel uneasy whenever I see it and I see it daily. Which means I experience some form of fear and discomfort every day.

The negative vibration of 9:11 is fear and anxiety. I have fears and anxiety about certain things, and it’s something I must work on to reach my highest potential and access its more positive aspects.

When it comes to numbers, don’t polarize towards the light by ignoring the shadow.

Growth happens in the dark.

A true study of numbers will not only focus on the positive but will consider the impact of the negative aspects to give you the best understanding of yourself.

Let me know what your numbers are when you’re done. And also, let me know if you think it’s just crazy.

Either way, I’m eager to know.
