Numerology is based on the understanding that we enter life with certain strengths and weaknesses. Karmic lessons are areas that we are currently weak in and must be faced and worked on in this life. There can be more than one Karmic Lesson. These are indicated by the absence of certain numbers in your name.
The letters and numbers of your name point to talents and abilities that you possess. These characteristics can be compared to a workshop in which certain tools are available to you. Missing numbers, those that are not represented in the letters in your name, imply tools that are unavailable, and must be learned and mastered during this lifetime.
You may well recognize your Karmic Lessons as weaknesses you have learned to overcome in the course of your life, however, the challenges implied in your Karmic Lessons will continue to come up occasionally for the rest of your life.
You have a Karmic Lesson 6
Paul, you have a major issue with commitment and responsibility to others.
You have a hard time committing to marriage and other important personal relationships. You have to learn to show true emotion.
You may feel isolated and alone, but do not understand why. The reason is that very often you form relationships yet remain heavily guarded, putting up a show of emotion without truly communicating affection or care. This can make the bond between you and others superficial. You must learn to establish sincere relationships.
Paul, you will learn the importance of close friends and lasting relationships. You will learn to give and, when necessary, sacrifice. This is the one true way to true friendship and lasting love.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 6 among your core numbers in your numerology chart (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality Number).
You have a Karmic Lesson 8
Paul, you can attract a considerable amount of money and even be a good business person, but you experience major ups and downs in your financial affairs, due largely to your lack of caution in handling your resources.
You are highly independent and do not want to be told how to do things. You have great problems with authority figures. This stems from a kind of know-it-all attitude and stubborn behavior that prevents you from knowing your limits.
You will have to work at knowing how to handle money. In all likelihood, you will attract enough of it, but it has a tendency to slip through your fingers. This Karmic Lesson forces you to learn your limitations, and the limitations of your resources. Learn to be efficient.
The effects of this Karmic Lesson are diminished if you have at least one 8 among your core numbers (Life Path, Birthday, Hearts Desire, Expression, or Personality Number).
The Hidden Passion in your numerology chart reveals one or more special strengths and talents that you rely upon and are available to you. The Hidden Passion represents your specific field of expertise, or a concentrated talent.
Metaphorically, this talent can be seen as having a power all its own to shape your life. Its existence gives you a strong desire to develop and to express that particular ability. Having the talent demands that you express it, that you experience this part of you, and that you live according to its nature. In this way, the Hidden Passion shapes your personality, and guides your life. Your Hidden Passion is 1
Paul, you have a strong drive to stand out. You have a great ambition and desire to accomplish. You are highly competitive and want to be the best and the first in everything you do. You are highly energetic and creative. You are capable of influencing and even dominating others. You have highly developed political skills, and can succumb to manipulation unless your ideals are high.
Ironically, there are times when you lack confidence, especially at an earlier age, but you have the strength to overcome this obstacle.
Paul, you are a survivor, a warrior, a leader. Many great athletes and politicians have this number as a Hidden Passion.
Each of us experiences life on four different levels: with our physical body; our mental faculty; our emotional makeup; and our intuition. In numerology, each of these areas has a specific means of perceiving information. The physical body is capable of touch, taste, pleasure, and pain. It provides us with a sense of the physical world. The mental body, like the emotional and intuitive natures, perceives the invisible worlds. Our minds deal with the world of thought. The heart, of course, is preoccupied exclusively with the world of emotion. Our feelings teach us many things about ourselves and about others. Finally, we have the capacity for direct contact with the higher realms by way of intuition. Intuitive insight comes in a flash. It is not rational -- that is the world of the mental plane -- but comes as if it were placed at the doorstep of our minds. Intuition, therefore, bypasses all effort.
These four faculties exist in all of us. But each of us depends more on one or two of them for the bulk of our knowledge. Some of us are possessed by our senses, while others live almost exclusively in our hearts, or minds.
Numerology indicates how we as individuals function on each plane.
The letters of the alphabet are divided in four categories: physical, mental, emotional and intuitive.
The proportion of each category in your name gives a good indication of which Planes of Expression are strongest in you, and which ones are weaker.
These Planes of Expression can greatly help you to understand your talents and abilities.
PLANE OF EXPRESSION PHYSICAL
Your Plane of Expression Physical is 9
Paul, you have a strong presence. You are charismatic and have a dramatic flair in your personality, which may direct you to the theater.
You are also drawn to politics, publishing, promotion, and public service -- any career that requires a certain amount of time before the public. You are attracted to doing things on a large scale.
You are a humanitarian. You are concerned about the well being of society. You have a great deal of compassion, tolerance and generosity.
You are highly idealistic and a bit of a dreamer. You are not particularly practical, however. Very often, you are not understood by others, and sometimes considered indifferent and aloof.
In some way, you want to please everyone and tend to give promises that may be impossible to keep.
If you develop your abilities, you have a significant chance to become famous.
PLANE OF EXPRESSION MENTAL
Your Plane of Expression Mental is 19/1
Paul, your mind is very sharp and quick, coming up with good and innovative ideas in a flash. You process information quickly, but tend to put it in short-term memory. You use information for a specific purpose, but forget it quickly when it no longer has any relevance to your immediate needs.
You are the proverbial quick study. You pick up information like a vacuum, and may have a facility with languages.
You are extremely original. You love moving into the frontier of any enterprise to come up with innovative methods. You are a ground-breaker.
You are witty and charming. You get bored easily.
PLANE OF EXPRESSION EMOTIONAL
Your Plane of Expression Emotional is 12/3
Paul, you are very romantic. You are highly creative and imaginative.
You fantasize about your perfect "other": a White Knight on a horse, or a beautiful princess. Your response to painful emotional situations -- especially in childhood -- was to create a fantasy world to which you escaped. You may still be doing that as an adult, perhaps to your detriment. Reality lacks the romance and excitement of your fantasies.
Paul, you can be disorderly and disorganized, however. You can be rather moody.
You likely have much artistic talent, especially in writing, acting, or singing.
PLANE OF EXPRESSION INTUITIVE
Your Plane of Expression Intuitive is 16/7
Paul, you have great intuition and insight in abstract and metaphysical matters. You seek a broad perspective on all intuitive matters. You like to provide scientific and rational support to all of your intuitive insights.
You have an inventive mind and likely have a talent as a writer or composer.
People experience different internal responses to life's challenges. Some withdraw from difficult situations to think them through; others withdraw from their emotions, to try and keep themselves from feeling anything. Some explode with emotions, but allow the explosion to pass quickly. Others linger with their feelings, holding on to them well past the time they should have let them go.
Very often, these are conditioned or emotional responses that emerge without thought or analysis. Maturity and self-development help us to learn new and more effective methods of handling our world and the problems we confront. Your Balance number provides you with the guidance on how best to deal with difficult or threatening situations.
Your Balance is 3
Paul, be more lighthearted and optimistic in your approach to problems. Try to work with others toward a mutually satisfying solution. Use your considerable charm to influence the situation.
You can be extremely emotional when faced with a problem. Try to control this tendency; you need a degree of objectivity. You may become too personally attached to the solution you seek, thus failing to see that the outcome can be beneficial to all concerned.
Your Rational Thought number reveals what can probably best be described as the way you think. Are you a practical, methodical thinker, or a dreamer? Do you frequently allow your imagination to color your perception? Are you unconventional and original in the face of a practical problem, or do you stick to proven methods?
This is the kind of information revealed through your Rational Thought number.
Your Rational Thought is 30/3
Paul, you are creative, but your thoughts tend to be scattered. You jump around inside your head without much focus. You come up with solutions that reveal an illogical approach, yet they often work.
As it applies to you, rational thinking is a contradiction in terminus. You project, interpret, and analyze your projects and problems in a manner that often leaves others flabbergasted. However, you are unbeatable when it comes to shining new and original light on issues; often coming up with unique answers.
You have this Rational Thought number in common with a number of famous and original thinkers -- and the key-word here is original -- throughout history.
The first letter of your first name gives an additional indication to your character, particularly as to the manner in which you approach opportunities and obstacles. The first letter is called your Cornerstone.
Your Cornerstone is J
Paul, your J is for Justice. You are honest, loyal, reliable and sincere. You want to improve the lives of others. You may try too hard to please everyone. You have a clever mind and are very talented. However, you have to work at motivating yourself to make the most of your talents. SUBCONSCIOUS SELF
Your Subconscious Self reveals how you react to demanding situations. It indicates your ability to get the most out of your talents and opportunities, especially when you face new or challenging circumstances. The Subconscious Self also reveals the areas of our character that need to be strengthened. Your Subconscious Self is 7
Paul, you can appear indifferent to your surroundings and somewhat aloof. You are well-balanced and can survive many a stormy time. In time of trial, you withdraw within yourself finding solace and answers, in your creative and analytical mind. You may be a bit of a loner and do not easily share your feelings with others.
