Numerology: How numbers can make you healthier and happier
Of all the holistic and divinatory arts, numerology is one of the lesser known. Numerology involves the studying of numbers that are thought to be significant due to astrological or cosmological factors.
One of the most common uses of numerology is for working out your ‘life path’ number. This is a number from 1 to 9 that you can work out using your date of birth. Your life path, according to numerology, tells you about key challenges or health problems people who share your specific life path number might face.
Using numerology to gain insights into yourself can empower you to make changes that will result in a healthier, happier lifestyle.
How to work out your life path number
You can work out your life path number by adding the individual digits that make up your date of birth together. This you keep doing until you are left with a single digit. Say, for example, your birthday is the 1st of June, 1981:
1/6/1981 = 1 + 6 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 1 = 26 = 8
In this case, your life path number is ‘8’. According to numerology, those who have an eight life path tend to be very driven to succeed. A pitfall of having this life path is being so attached to material things that you become a workaholic and fail to take time to ease stress and put your health first.
This can contribute to high blood pressure, heart problems or stress-related illness. The insights of numerology can thus provide you with useful advice on putting your health first and counteracting any negative tendencies you may have.
Vedic numerology and health
The ‘life path’ number (also known as the ‘destiny number’) is only one aspect considered in the Indian art of vedic numerology. This branch sees each person as having three core numbers in their lives. The first is the psychic number, the second is the destiny number, and the third is the name number.
The psychic number is linked to the way you see yourself, your aspirations and your basic predispositions and abilities. Your name number is thought to be influential in your dealings with other people. Because it is a complex practice, it is best to see a vedic numerology professional if you want to obtain an in-depth analysis of your predispositions and the further steps you can take, using numerological insights, to living a healthier, happier life.
