This is understandable, after all, we live in a world that is practical, logical, and straightforward -- to some extent, anyway.
Skeptics think that the notion that your name reflects your personality, or that your date of birth foretells things about your future, is farfetched, if not completely ludicrous.
In fact, if you stick only to accepting that which can be proven, touched, seen with your own eyes, you stand little chance of surviving for long in this not-so-practical world.
I am sure that even the most skeptical person has experienced "mysterious phenomena" in his or her life, and responded to it without hesitation. They just don't call it mysterious or consider the implications. After all, it's safer to stay away from that.
What kind of explanation would you apply to something like that? After all, there was no visible or material connection of any kind between you and the person staring at you from twenty feet away. So how did the message travel across space and alert your brain?
I can tell you that in my life I have seen a number of instances where this kind of instinct saved me or someone else from disaster. Just as I have seen people who appeared too dense to pick up those kind of subtle signals walk into bad situations that could have been avoided, had they been a little bit more sensitive to their instincts.
The animal kingdom thrives on it and people recognize that. But what is intuition if not an evolved, sophisticated form of instinct? Absorbing and accepting information without going through a rational thought process is common, we do it all the time.
The truth is, there is no real separation between what we consider real, practical or material, and that which we refer to as intuitive. The world of matter is real, or so it seems, but that's debatable, considering that every second reality changes in a trillion small and not so small ways.
It recognizes the relationship between symbols (numbers and letters, names and dates), and what they represent. It's an intuitive science, of course, and as a Numerologist, I am trained to find those connections between your name and what it says about your personality. Or your date of birth and what it tells about your future.
Numerology is the study of the patterns and connectivity that exists between the two. Symbolism, synchronicity, mysteries, physics, even psychology, are the fingers scratching the surface of the unknown.
The nine cardinal numbers not only symbolize nine specific archetypes, but also nine stages of development that all of us pass through in order to complete our growth and maturity.
In one of the nicer examples of symbolic psychology, the shape of the number 9 itself contains a circle on a lead, representing the completion of a cycle, a turning back to the beginning, which is also manifested in the fact that whenever any number is added to the number 9, it comes back to itself.
For example, if you add 9 plus 5, you get 14, which, if added together (the 1 and the 4 of 14), makes 5 again. An 8 plus 9 is 17, which, if 1 and 7 are added together, gives us 8 again.
Three different ways of looking at the 9-the shape of the symbol, the mathematical strangeness, and what it represents in numerology-reveal closely related characteristics.
The pillar shape of the number 1 reflects the independence, leadership, and strength of that number.
The humble, sensitive, and diplomatic 2 symbolizes its resilient strength: It is easy to depress, and to squash, yet it is flexible, and, like a spring, the 2 rises again, much easier and quicker than does the 1.
The 3 represents self-expression, verbal art, enthusiasm, and inspiration. It is the most imaginative of all numbers, and this is reflected in its open and inviting shape, which is ready to embrace anything in this world and the world above.
The squares-shaped 4 is down-to-earth. It sits on the ground, and it is a foundation and a rock of support for other numbers. It represents limitations (often self-imposed) and discipline; it is never a dreamer.
The 5 is the most dynamic of all numbers, and the symbol seems to turn around its central point. The 5 will try anything at least once, and, and, true to its nature, is open front and back.
The number 6 is the most loving and sacrificing of all numbers, it is the mother/fatherhood numbers, and it seems pregnant with love.
The 7 is the thinker and the hermit. It is the seeker of truth, and it reminds me of a wise old man with an outstretched arm. In his hand he holds a lamp, shining its light in search of answers.
The 8 represents the balance between the spiritual and the material world, and the symbol reflects heaven and earth in the two circles stacked on top of each other.
The 9 completes the circle, Like the 6, it is a very loving number, but where the 6 sends its love to family, friends, and the community, the 9 gives its love to the worlds. It is the humanitarian.
As you apply the numbers to specific people and situation, their many nuance will be revealed to you. Soon you will recognize that numbers are not only illuminating, but also fun.
