Numbers are, without doubt, one of the most important aspects to study if you want to better understand yourself and your life mission. Numerology is used as a means to understand the hidden meaning of patterns that occur in the daily life of all of us because each number carries some energy and vibration that tends to create our reality.
Why is it important to know your life path number
Your life path number is like a secret code that guides your inner journey. It can reveal your potential and your destiny. Knowing your life path number can help you make better life decisions, such as choosing the best career, partner, or even your first home. Last but not least, it reflects your personality, talents, and the challenges you may face in life.
Your life path number is calculated using the date of birth (mm-dd-yyyy), so you don’t have to stress about not knowing the exact hour and minute of birth (which is needed, for example, in an astrological birth chart.)
Knowing your life path number (or master number) is one of the best ways to see exactly how you’re putting your energy to work in your life. If you know your life path number, it can help you understand who you are and what you’re here to do, and it can guide you toward the life you were meant to have.
Before we look at how to calculate your life path number, it is necessary to mention that there are three master numbers – master number 11, mastre number 22, and master number 33. So if you get 11, 22, or 33 after adding your date of birth, don’t add them anymore. Regarding the life path numbers, there are 9 life path numbers – from 1 to 9. I have seen a lot of articles on the internet about life path number 10. However, all the articles are misleading because life path number 10 does not exist!
How to calculate your life path number
To find out your life path number, you don’t need any special life path number calculator. It’s a very simple process that only takes a few seconds.
All you have to do is add the digits of the month, day, and year until you reach a single digit. For example, let’s say you were born on June 6th, 1989. June is the sixth month, so we have number six. You were born on the sixth day, so another number is six. And then we have 1989. 6+6+1+9+8+9 is 39. Since 39 is not a master number, we continue to add up 3 + 9, which is 12. Again, 12 is not a master number, nor a life path number, so we add up 1+2, which gives us 3. So, your life path is number 3.
More examples of how to calculate a life path number
If your birthday is May 11, 1985, your life path number is 3. May is the fifth month, so 5+1+1+1+9+8+5=30. Then we add up 3+0, which makes the number three.
If your birthday is December 21, 1976, your life path number is 11, which is a master number. December is the twelfth month, so 1+2+2+1+1+9+7+6=29. Then we add up 2+9, which makes the number 11.
If your birthday is August 5, 1968, your life path number is 1. August is the eighth month, so 8+5+1+9+6+8=37. After adding up 3+7, we get the number 10. You see that we do not have either a single-digit number or a master number, so we continue adding up 1+0, which makes the final life path number 1. Again, life path number 10 does not exist!
Your life path number is a unique, individualized number that reflects your soul purpose and the direction in which you should be moving. It’s a powerful number, capable of shaping your life and empowering your actions and decisions. Understanding your life path number can help you make better choices, achieve more success, and lead a happier, more fulfilled life.
