Chapter One

Part One Understand the Basics

What Is Numerology and What Can It Do For You?

Numbers are centres of energy—great cosmic forces that lead us to our highest level of integrity and personal fulfillment. They represent areas of learning and stages in our growth. Each of the numbers 1 to 9, and the master numbers 11, 22, and 33, carries a variety of elements and qualities that can be expressed in positive and negative ways, depending on the development and spiritual/ethical maturity of the individual.

Numerology is an ancient science based on the measurement of energy through numbers. Every letter in your name represents numeric energy that affects the qualities you develop and refine in this life time, and the inner strengths that support you throughout your journey. Every number in your birth date indicates the types of opportunities and lessons you will experience.

Numerology is also:

* A study of human nature – how we make our way in the world, how we relate to others, and our basic psychological and emotional make-up

* A study of profound universal truths that assist us in our growth and evolution

* A metaphysical framework for examining our Sacred Contract

* A system for proactive living that offers guidance and can help us to plan for success in all that we undertake

Numerology will help you determine the right approach and the right time for everything, from visiting your mother to planning a career move or finding your romantic soul-mate.

How to Use This Book

You will find it very helpful to use a journal or the note pages that are included in this book for your calculations and for answering the reflective questions. Although the book is designed for you to read on your own, you will also enjoy reading it with a partner or a group of friends or co-workers, so that you can compare your experiences with each number, and discuss your answers to the questions.

To determine your personal numbers you will start with some very simple calculations. These will give you the numbers of your personal year, month, and day.

The Personal Year section describes the way in which the number of your temporary vibration affects the main areas of your life—career, finances, relationships, and personal growth—for the entire year from one birthday to the next. There are proactive choices listed for each of your personal years, to show you how you can make the best use of that year's numeric energy. There is also a suggested affirmation for each of your personal years.

The Personal Month explains how the numeric energy will affect your life over a period of a few weeks during, and within the context of your personal year. This section indicates what types of issues, themes, or events are likely to arise and what types of short term projects are most favoured during your month. Information in the personal month section is relevant to all aspects of your life, including career and romance. There is also a section that will tell you when you can expect the energy of your personal month to support, complement, or intensify the energy of your personal year. (As proactive choices would be redundant at this point, you are encouraged to refer to the proactive choices that are listed with each personal year number and modify them for the shorter period of time.)

The Personal Day section explains the way in which the numbers 1 to 9, and the master numbers 11, 22, and 33, affect your day to day reality. It provides examples of the kinds of interactions, activities and events that you may be intuitively drawn to, and that are likely to arise in your life that day.

This section also indicates some of the pitfalls of your personal day number. Each number represents a continuum of attributes. When the energy of that number is expressed at a lower level on the continuum, we may be drawn to actions or thought processes that ultimately diminish our sense of security and self-worth. Awareness is the most important tool we can use to keep our vibrations running high and our energy strong.

Since the purpose of this book is to show readers how to use the energy of their temporary vibration to its best possible advantage, there is a list of proactive choices for each day. These are suggestions for activities and initiatives that are favoured and enhanced by your personal day number, and that will, in turn, add greater value to your life and your experience of that number. They are meant to guide you in planning your day, your work, and your leisure activities, to align with the progression of your nine day "week", but not to dictate how you must live your life.

By scheduling certain activities to align with the energy of your personal day, you will meet with less resistance, stress, and frustration. You will gain a greater sense of purpose and accomplishment, as well as greater restorative benefit from your leisure activities. Whenever you participate in a soul-enhancing activity, the benefit to yourself and others is ongoing.

NOTE: Not all proactive choices need to be followed each time you have a particular day, but by following some of these suggestions, you will find that the energy of that number is flowing, that you feel more in charge of situations and circumstances, and, quite likely, that you are getting more enjoyment out of life.

Many readers live with a partner, spouse, and or children. There is a section with each personal day to show you how you can enhance the personal day of those you care for, even when you are experiencing a different number yourself.

Finally there is a section for single people to show them how the personal day may be used to help them find a romantic partner.

Not every aspect of your personal day number will present itself in a given twenty-four hour period; but, at the end of the day, as you reflect on events and activities within the context of your personal number, you are likely to find that several elements of that energy that have come forward at different times during your day, or that one particular element has been dominant.

Make notes over a period of two or three nine day cycles. If possible, compare your findings with the experiences of one or more of your friends or coworkers. Don't try to make the number fit or to make your experiences fit the number. You won't need to do that because after you have worked with your Personal Number System for a short period of time, you will start to feel its rhythm, to get "in sync" with the logical progression from one to nine.

For each personal year number, as well as each personal day number, you will find brief stories that illustrate the numbers at work in peoples' lives. Some of these are my own personal experiences and some are experiences that my clients have had. In the latter case, the names have been changed.

Cycles within Cycles

Before we examine in detail what each of the numbers brings to our personal year, month, and day, we need to clarify the term "cycles". What are cycles and how do they affect us?

The waxing and waning of the moon, the ebb and flow of the ocean's tides, the miracle of transformation that brings a beautiful butterfly out of its cocoon, the progression of our personal year, right through to our solar return, the progression of our personal months and days—each of these represents a cycle, and each is an example of Divine Perfection.

The longest cycle of our journey is the life path. This is our cycle from birth to death. There are also shorter cycles in our journey, and these we refer to as temporary vibrations. They are with us for a period of time. It may be as long as thirty years, as in a major cycle, or nine years, as in a second or third pinnacle.

When we examine these cycles using the science of numerology, we see that they are periods of time when themes and issues emerge and re-emerge. We become aware of the progress that we are making within each cycle, and are able to see how these patterns of energy move us forward in terms of our personal growth, our soul's evolution, and indeed the evolution of our entire global family.

There are several excellent books, listed in the bibliography, which explain your life path, major cycles, and pinnacles in detail. Those topics are beyond the scope of this book, which is dealing exclusively with the shorter cycles.

The Shortest Cycle

In this book, we will calculate and examine your personal year and month, before looking very closely at the shortest cycle of all, the personal day.

Why is the largest part of this book about the shortest cycle?

... Because it's the days in our lives and specifically the moments in our days that carry the most meaning for us, that create the greatest impact on our soul's growth.

... Because when we are spending our time wisely each day we are better able to minimize stress and maintain a positive level of Life Force Energy.

... Because when we minimize stress, we have greater Peace of Mind. We are in the flow. When we are "in the flow", we contribute to the well-being of everyone on the planet.

That is not to say that with this system, every day will be filled with sunshine and roses! Not every day can be that way, but every day brings blessings, many blessings, and opportunities to engage in the process of life and to fully participate in your soul's growth.

In his book, "The Life You Were Born to Live", author Dan Millman uses the term "ride the crest of the wave". Each of us may find different ways to ride the crest of the wave, but ultimately it will always mean that we are living consciously, in harmony with the numerical energy that is with us for each day, and finding ways, moment to moment, to use our time wisely and contribute to the highest good of our planet and our fellow human beings.

All it takes to understand the energy of your personal day - and to work effectively with the energy of all your temporary vibrations - is a basic understanding of the nature of each number, and some simple addition exercises!

Chapter Two

Part Two Begin with Your Personal Year

Your Personal Year

Knowing the number of your year helps you to understand the major events and developments that occur in your personal and professional life. It brings validation and encouragement, and helps to prepare you for upcoming lessons and blessings.

What is a Personal Year?

Personal years are regular, progressive cycles that bring forward certain themes and opportunities. The energy of your personal year tends to be highly discernible, and you'll usually feel as though your life is revolving around a certain theme or perhaps a certain project. For example you may:

* Start a new job

* Go back to school

* Start a business

* End a relationship

* Start a relationship

* Have a baby

* Buy, or build a house ...

The situations that arise during your personal year will be congruent with the energy of that particular number, and very often the actions that you initiate will instinctively be those that are supported by the numeric energy of your year.

The energetic patterns of the personal year are repeated over and over again every nine years throughout our lives. Although we repeat the numbers over and over, a great deal of learning occurs along the way.

Nine years later, when we experience the same number of personal year once more, our lives will be different and our souls will be at a higher level of evolution than they were during the previous year that we encountered that same numerical influence. We gain even more benefit from the number than we did nine years before. If you think of a circular path winding around a mountain, you'll keep coming back to the same side of the mountain but you'll always be higher up.

It is true that some people do not acknowledge their spirituality, or simply cannot summon the will to break free from negative patterns and self-sabotage. For these people, the learning becomes much more difficult and the growth is minimal, but it still occurs. The numbers are at work in everyone's life, regardless of whether they choose to accept the gifts or not.

Although the personal year begins on your birthday, there is a transition period. For a few weeks before your birthday you will feel your focus shifting as a new theme begins to emerge.

How to Calculate Your Personal Year

To calculate your own personal year, start with the number of the month that you were born.

Use the numbers 10, 11, and 12 for October, November, and December respectively. We don't reduce those numbers until later in the calculation.

Then add to that the number of the day that you were born.

Then add the number of the calendar year for your last birthday.

For example if your last birthday was in 2011, you would add the number 4 (2+1+1) to the number you got when combining your day and month. If the birthday was in 2012 you would add 5; in 2013, 6; and so on.

Eliminate the zeros from your calculation; we are adding only the digits 1 to 9.

You will end up with a two digit number. If that number is 11, 22, or 33, it is a master number, and must be left that way. All other two digit numbers will be added together to get only one digit.

For example:

At this writing, the year is 2011.

If your birthday was on December 31, and you are doing this calculation on or after January 1 of the next year, you will use the number of the previous calendar year, 2010.

Your calculation will look like this:

12+31+3=46

Then you must add the 4 and 6 together.

4+6=10

You must now eliminate the zero, and you find that, on your last birthday, you began a 1 personal year.

You will continue to be in a 1 year until your next birthday, at which time the calculation will be:

12+31+4=47

4+7=11

Below are two more examples:

This birthday was on September 11, 2011

The calculation looks like this:

9+11+4=24

2+4=6

This person is in a 6 personal year until her next birthday in September of 2012.

This birthday was on April 8, 2011.

The calculation looks like this:

4+8+4=16

1+6=7

This person will be in a 7 personal year until her next birthday in April of 2012.

Once you have finished your calculations, the following pages will tell you about the indications and proactive choices for your personal year.

Your 1 Personal Year

Focus: You and Your Journey

If you are in a 1 personal year, you are beginning a new nine year cycle. This is a time to be creative and innovative, to take action, and follow new opportunities that will come your way. There is work to be done, as you are laying new foundations and opening up to new opportunities.

Decisive Action and a New Career

Dena had her degree in education, but she had been a stay at home mother for many years. As her children got older she began to regret the fact that she hadn't developed a career. She spent a lot of time reflecting on her own needs and aspirations, as well as taking inventory of her strengths and abilities. She then surprised her family by taking a quick and very intensive course that would qualify her to teach English as a second language. Before her year was over she had found a part time position with her local school board. Dena loves meeting adult students from all over the world and making a difference in their lives. She also values the independence and sense of personal power that her new career has given her.

This is usually an excellent time to make a career move. Whether you initiate the move yourself or not, it is highly likely that you will meet a new boss or mentor in your 1 year. There is also a strong possibility that you will step into a leadership role.

A leadership role will often bring financial increase. While some increase in salary is likely, some of this increase could come as a larger package of benefits, stock options, or a better pension plan. Because this is the 1 year there is the sense that you are sowing seeds that will bear fruit later on.

Have courage, make plans, and avoid indecision. Focus on yourself, and be selfish in the healthiest sense of that word. At some point this year you may be required to face a challenging situation on your own. You will take pride in being self-reliant.

Although we often experience endings in a 9 year, it's possible that abrupt endings may occur in certain areas of your life in your 1 year as well. Some of the endings that occur in a 1 year seem to come as a result of external circumstances, and some from our own personal choices. For example, you may wish to extricate yourself from an employment or housing situation that is not serving your highest good. Avoid being impulsive or headstrong, yet be willing to change for the sake of your own personal progress and happiness.

Any relationships that are no longer valid for you may have ended in your previous (9) year; but, if not, they may end abruptly in your 1 year. With a stronger desire for independence this year, you may actually choose to initiate the ending. This need never be done unkindly, and is always a blessing for all concerned.
