The Life Path / Expression Bridge number, and the Heart’s Desire / Personality Bridge number are easily calculated; they are the difference between the two core numbers they represent. For example, in Tom’s case, his Life Path is a 1 and his Expression a 4. Therefore, his Life Path / Expression Bridge is (4 – 1) 3.
Similarly, the Heart’s Desire / Personality Bridge, in Tom’s case, is (9 – 4) = 5.

THE MEANING OF THE LIFE PATH / EXPRESSION BRIDGE NUMBERS
The Bridge numbers in your chart are the numbers that indicate how you can make the relationship between the individual core numbers in your chart easier and more compatible. Bridge numbers have the potential to "close the gap" between the Life Path and Expression number, or the Heart's Desire and Personality number.
The Bridge number between the Life Path number and the Expression number was described earlier in your reading. Another important Bridge number in your numerology chart relates to your Heart's Desire number and your Personality number. This Bridge number, the Heart's Desire - Personality bridge, explains how you can make your deeper self - your needs and desires, your true nature - more aligned with the part of your personality others tend to recognize when they meet you.
With a little exaggeration, you could say that your Personality number is somewhat like your mask. It is the more superficial you; a protective shield and a camouflage of the deeper you. You can easily imagine how much more comfortable, and less self-conscious, you will be when your deeper and more real you is closer and more fitting to the outer personality you show on a day to day basis.
