Your Name is Your Most Important Asset
by numerologist Kathleen Lamoureux
Your name was not just pulled out of thin air by your parents. It was pre-planned in advance according to the laws of the Universe and Universal values, which rule the language of vibrations and spiritual awareness. Numerology is based on the concept of reincarnation and that each of us comes back with a certain vibration to help us along our path and re-visit and re-work on certain lessons for our higher good.
In Numerology you only need two things to have your numerology chart done:
1. The name given to you as it appears on your birth certificate.
2. Your date of birth.
Your Name is one of the most important assets in your life. It resonates to a certain energy and vibration that defines who and what you are. In fact knowing the numbers from your name can help you understand many things about yourself and can be very healing and beneficial. There are 3 numbers from your birth name that numerologists use when calculating a numerology chart:
1. Your soul number
2. Your personality number
3. Your destiny number
Your birth name provide many clues and certain patterns in your life, which repeat many times over. As a numerologist, I can determine not only the soul, personality and destiny numbers from your name, but your name also reveals your karmic lessons, your hidden tendencies and your subconscious response. In fact, each letter in your name represents something different and has different characteristics and aspects that mean something. The first letter of your name, the last letter of your name and the first vowel in your first name all have special meaning to a numerologist. So there are many aspects that you can uncover and discover about yourself just from your name.
As I said earlier, the first three numbers in your numerology chart are from your name. The soul number is composed of all the vowels in your name. The personality number is composed of all the consonants in your name, and your destiny number includes both the vowels and the consonants from your birth name.
Soul Number – This is the secret number in your chart. It's what you feel and desire, but no one else sees. It is a gentle guiding force that puts you on the path to what you truly desire, your dreams and what you yearn for. Your soul is a reflection of how you see yourself. This is truly what your heart desires, so it's important to let it be your guide to what it is you truly desire in life.
Personality Number - This shows how others see you. It's your face that you show to the world, and is the first impression you give to others. This number says a lot about your character and can help you to identify some of your talents, characteristics, strengths and weaknesses.
Destiny Number - This number reveals what you must do with your life. It can help to guide you toward living a life that really matters to you. This is the number will help you live up to your fullest potential. I believe that this is one of three numbers in a numerology chart that is the most important along with the soul number and the Life Path number.
What are your numbers?
In numerology there are 9 single digit numbers that numerologists mainly work with. I will cover the meaning of double-digit numbers in another post. However, this list of numbers will give you a basic idea of the characteristics and meanings of each number from 1 through 9. I am providing a brief interpretation, rather than just keywords to give you a better idea of what each number means. Therefore, when you know your soul, personality or destiny numbers, you have a basic idea of the traits, strengths and weaknesses of that individual. However, it is important to note that in numerology, it is the placement of a number that gives it more or less weight in one’s numerology chart.
The Number 1 represents someone who is the leader and large and in charge. They love to initiate things and ideas and put them into action. They don’t sit idle, they take the bull by the horns and get things done. Think George Washington. The number 1 individual is strong-willed, determined, progressive and courageous. Number 1 epitomizes new beginnings, courage and will-power.
Number 2 represents someone who is very sensitive, intuitive, tactful and cooperative. They are always negotiating something for themselves or someone and would make an excellent Diplomat. Think Bill Clinton. The number 2 individual can mediate difficult situations and is excellent at creating peaceful solutions. They work better with others than alone. Number 2 epitomizes balance, partnerships, duality and choices.
Number 3 represents someone who is creative and quite expressive. The number 3 individual is someone who is quite tolerant, happy, optimistic and very inspiring to be around. They are the social butterflies of all the numbers and do tend to scatter their juicy energy for all to partake. Think John Travolta. Number 3 epitomizes harmony, union, enthusiasm, joy, creativity and verbalization.
Number 4 represents someone who is very detailed oriented, disciplined, reliable and dependable. The number 4 individual has a strong sense of value and order. The 4 is the list keeper and usually have some sort of notepad or their I-phone with the ‘notes’ feature with them at all times. Think Bill Gates. Number 4 epitomizes structure, foundation, stability and planning ahead.
Number 5 represents someone who needs a lot of elbow room, needs to be free, loves to travel, is the adventure-seeker, daring quick witted and free-thinking. Think Mick Jagger! The number 5 individual is expansive, visionary and quite adaptable. Number 5 epitomizes freedom, change and resourcefulness.
Number 6 represents someone who is very responsible to others. The family unit and community is very important to them. They have a lot of sympathy for others and make excellent healers and are concerned for the weak and downtrodden. Think Eleanor Roosevelt. The number 6 individual is sympathetic, nurturing, artistic, and likes to dispense lots of advice to others whether solicited or not. Number 6 epitomizes love, harmony, loyalty and responsibility.
Number 7 represents someone who is skilled at analysis and research. They seek knowledge from many fields including spiritual, religious, and scientific. Think Queen Elizabeth. The number 7 individual is focused, introspective intuitive, serious with a lot of inner-wisdom. They soul-search a lot and it’s not unusual for them to go and retreat by themselves to think and re-group. Number 7 epitomizes spirituality, mastery and wisdom.
Number 8 represents someone who has excellent executive or leadership abilities. They can run companies and may have more than one business in their lifetime. They are decisive and have a commanding presence. They work for a cause but desire recognition. Think Elizabeth Taylor. The number 8 individual is authoritative, strong, organized, successful and realistic. Number 8 epitomizes power, authority, control and this number does rule monetary or financial issues.
Number 9 represents the true humanitarian – one who takes care of others whether it is family, friends, community or one who embraces and helps the whole universal pack. Think Mahatma Ghandi. The number 9 individual is helpful, compassionate, charitable and generous. Number 9 epitomizes accomplishment, attainment and fruition.
Putting it all together
Let’s take a look at a few examples of people that you may have heard of as I give you a quick snapshot or synopsis of the meaning of their name numbers.
Deepak Chopra is a 9-4-4 – So here we have a man whose soul completely desires to help and heal others because of the 9 in his soul. When you add the double 4’s in Deepak’s name, it adds the layer of someone who is quite serious and responsible to so many people on a large scale. He has a strong sense of what is right and what is wrong within us and without us and advises the masses on the subject tirelessly. He is certainly a spiritual leader or guru who entered this life plane equipped to handle global humanitarian endeavors. With a master number 22/4 destiny number, he is the master builder of our humanity on a global scale.
Oprah Winfrey is a 4-3-7 – Since 3 is the number of one who completely expresses themselves through the art of communication and is a very inspirational energy, we see this number express itself outwardly in Oprah’s personality – that’s what draws us in. We see her as extremely talented, delightful to watch and at the same time, she is very knowledgeable and insightful. She spreads joy and happiness wherever she goes. Add the 7 destiny number and we see her fulfilling her life’s purpose by being the spiritual persona she is by enriching our souls. She makes us think about what we came here to do with our lives and what we are doing with ourselves. Her soul number 4 shows us that she is the ultimate teacher who cares about us and she has made a difference in the lives of millions.
Prince George (new royal baby) is a 1-9-1 – This little boy is going to be the kind of future King that will really make a difference in his life like no other King before him. I see the numbers 911 in his name numbers, which is the universal code for HELP. People will rely and lean on him. Both his 1 soul and his 1 destiny numbers provide a very strong ability and desire to lead others. His 9 personality gives him the edge to help others on a large scale. He will be a King to remember.
