One of the numbers that amazes us the most when we know their meaning is our birth number. Knowing and interpreting it reveals many facets of our personality, and that of others, and helps us to improve ourselves to become a little better every day as human beings, which is what really counts.
Indeed, among the key numbers provided by the Numerology, that ancient discipline that goes back to the times of the wise Greek mathematician Pythagoras, more than two thousand five hundred years ago, one of them is the so-called "Path of life" that is relatively easy to calculate and interpret.
The Path of Life is the number with which we were born, the one with which we came to Earth, the one that indicates our nature, our talents, who we really are, precisely why it is called our "path in life".
If the vibratory frequencies that this number gives us live optimistically and positively, you can successfully achieve your goal. It is your number, the most important of all. You must live it fully, but remember, if you take it negatively then you could have adverse reactions.
It is also known as the birth number, and even the destination number, although the latter term is confusing and it is preferred to call it within Numerology as the Path of Life.
Learn how to calculate your Path of Life or your Birth Number
Calculating your birth number or Path of Life is very simple. The procedure is the next.
1. You write your day, month and year of birth with numbers:
Example, the December 12, 1950 would be: 12-12-1950
2. Once you have those numbers you add them together to make it easier for you to calculate. In the example above you add:
3. To that result you also get adding each element let's say: 12+12+1950=1974 and then adding 1+9+7+4=21
Remember that mathematics is exact science and the order of the addends does not alter the sum.
Now you have a number, in the previous case the 21 and you add it again 21=2+1=3 and you already have the Path of life since in Numerology you are going to reduce all the figures to a single digit, from 1 to 9. This is very important.
Another example: If the sum gives you 18 the resulting number would be 9 (1+8), if the sum gives you 32 the result is 5 (3+2) and so on, it is very simple, just add and reduce.
