Hey everyone!

Renae here,

So how does numerology work?

Well in numerology the numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 make up all numbers and all numbers can be broken back down into these single digit numbers. Based on what you are looking at the numbers for, each number can tell you how they apply to you and how they make up who you are and meant to be. I will start with myself as an example. For fun, I will also show you how to calculate your own life path number, along with a link to read what your life path number means for you. (You may find these descriptions shockingly true)

OK, so my birthday is 01-16-1988, In order to get my birthday down to one single number, I will add 1+16+1988. It is important to add the entire 4 digit year and not the last two digits as someone could’ve been born 2088, or 1888, creating an entirely different number. This equals out to 2005, I then add 2+0+0+5, equaling 7 (if your sum is still a double digit, then you add them together again to get your life path number, ex: 11/1+1=2). So my life path number is 7. Each life path number holds both positive and negative attributes, as humans have both. The life path of a number 7 as taken from astrology-numerology.com;

“The Life Path 7 suggests that you entered this plane with a gift for investigation, analysis, and keen observation. You are a thinker of the first order. You evaluate situations very quickly, and with amazing accuracy. As a result, you are thorough and complete in your work, the perfectionist who expects everyone else to meet a high standard of performance, too.

A Life Path 7 person is a peaceful and affectionate soul. But you guard your connection to people carefully. It’s easy for you to detect deception and recognize insincere people, and you avoid them. You aren’t one to have a wide circle of friends, but once you accept someone as a friend, it’s for life. It’s as if you must get to know someone a lot better before you allow the wall surrounding you to be penetrated. Chances are you are a very charming and refined individual with great poise and a quick wit. Nonetheless, there is an exclusiveness about you. You probably aren’t a very social person. Your reserve is often taken to be aloofness, but actually, it’s not that at all. It is merely a cover up for your basic feeling of insecurity. There’s no rush, It takes time for you to warm up to new friends. Clubs and organizations hold little interest for you; you are not a joiner.

You actually like being alone and away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. In many ways, you would have fit in better in much earlier times when the pace of life was less hectic. You need a good deal of quiet time to be with your own inner thoughts and dreams. You dislike crowds, noise, distractions, and confusion.

The overwhelming strength of the number 7 is reflected in the depth of thinking that is shown; you will garner knowledge from practically every source that you find. Intellectual, scientific, and studious, you don’t accept a premise until you have dissected the subject and arrived at your own independent conclusion.

This is a very spiritual number and it often denotes a sort of spiritual wisdom that becomes apparent at a fairly early age. A built in inner guide providing a strong sense of intuition may set you up as being a law unto yourself. Whatever spiritual position you take, whether traditional or bizarre, you will cling to it with fervor. Once you have decided an issue, it is almost impossible to get you to revisit the question. Adaptability is not your style, and change for you is a rarity.

You rely heavily on your experiences and your intuition, rather than accepting advice from someone. Your hunches usually prove to be very accurate, and knowing this, you follow the directions they seem to guide.

In the most negative use of the 7 energies, you can become very pessimistic, lackadaisical, quarrelsome, and secretive. A Life Path 7 individual who is not living life fully and gaining through experiences, is a hard person to live with because of a serious lack of consideration for others. There is such a negative attitude. Indeed, operating on the negative side of the 7 can produce a very selfish and spoiled individual and living with one can be a challenge. This may be why some 7’s actually prefer living alone. If you have any of the negative traits they are very difficult to get rid of because you tend to feel that the world really does owe you a living or that in some way you are not being fairly treated.

Fortunately, the negative 7 is not the typical 7, at least not without some mitigating positive traits. This number is one that seems to have some major shifts from highs to lows. Stability in feelings may be elusive for you.”

For me, this description was almost eerily on point. It’s very easy to deny the negative aspects because we don’t want to agree that we may have experienced them or are inclined to. But at least for me, I have battled with to some extent depression. I am avidly against the use of drugs, but in a high emotional states, have divulged into drinking alcohol, never to the extent of alcoholism, but I do understand what it’s getting to.
