Do It Yourself
The Heart's Desire number is just what the name implies: your innermost yearning; the dreams closest to your heart. Consequently, it shows your underlying motivation, or the general intention behind many of your actions. It dramatically influences the choices you make in life. Its influence is everywhere in your life - your career, your environment, friendships, and life style.
To find your Heart's Desire number, add the numerical value of the vowels of each
of your names; reduce them to single digits; add the single digits; and reduce them
again to a single-digit number, which is your Heart's Desire number.
Just as with the Expression number, do not reduce Master numbers to single digits.
If at any time you encounter a Master number, 11, 22 or 33, do not reduce it to a single-digit number.
Let's use Thomas John Hancock as an example:
(Always place the numbers for the Heart's Desire above the name in a numerology chart. The space below the name is used for the Personality number, as you will learn later.)
The name Thomas has 2 vowels (6 and 1), which totals to 7.
The name John has 1 vowel, which is 6.
The name Hancock has two vowels (1 and 6), which totals to 7.
Thomas's Heart's Desire is therefore 7 + 6 + 7 = 20, which reduces to 2.
Your Heart's Desire is the inner you. It shows your underlying urge, your true motivation. It reveals the general intention behind many of your actions. Consequently, it dramatically influences the choices you make in life.
The Heart's desire is seen as part of the larger picture, called the core numbers, which includes the Life Path, Expression, Day you were born, and Personality. But each points to a different aspect of you. The Expression number reveals your talents and abilities, and your general direction in life. The Life Path is the central lesson you came into the world to learn. The Day you were born is very closely connected to Life Path. It reveals specific talents you possess, which will be helpful to you in dealing with your Life Path. These talents tend to come to fuller expression after the age of 28. The Personality reveals how people tend to see you. It also demonstrates what characteristics you are projecting to the world. The Heart's Desire demonstrates the identity of the soul that joined the earth - you, the spiritual being.
