What is Numerology
The origins of numerology may be found in the development of the alphabet when letters were also used as the symbols for number. We see the remnants of this system today in the use of Roman Numerals. By totaling the values of individual letters, earlier civilizations and cultures would have assigned a numeric value to each word. The Greek process of this practice was called Isopsephy. When later applied to the interpretation of the Hebrew Torah it was called Gematria.
Pythagoras, who is thought to have used isopsephy for divination, is widely considered to be the father of modern numerology, He traveled the world in search of the sources of ancient wisdom and was initiated into the mysteries of several cultures. Numbers were at the heart of Pythagoras’ teachings as he believed them to be the highest manifestations of the Creative Principle. He investigated the power of mathematics and music as they applied to healing by restoring the vibrational structure of the human system.
Today quantum physics understands that, at the smallest level of investigation, particles are in fact bundles of energy or electromagnetic waves, waves (vibrations) that are defined by the numerical values of their frequencies. In other words, everything at source is vibration and number.
Modern numerology has its roots in the ancient relationships between letters, numbers and the vibrational nature of our world. At the soul level we will select a name and birth date that carry the energetic frequencies best suited to attracting experiences from which we will acquire the wisdoms sought in this life’s journey.
Numerology is the code breaker that reveals the information hidden in the name and birth date. With this knowledge, the individual may be reacquainted with aspects of his or her higher divine nature and thus bring a sense of perspective to the joys and sorrows of this world.
