#### Life Path Numbers

The Greek mathematician, mystic and philosopher, Pythagorus (570 BC – 495 BC) believed that numbers, like everything else, carried their own vibration.

Each number has its own personal meaning, according to the vibration it carries. And these vibrations carry over into your life through your birthday, which is known as your life path number.

The life path number is obtained by adding together all the numbers from your birth date, and is the strongest energy that you will work with throughout your life. It’s the vibration of who you are, and how you do what you do.

To get your life path number, simply add the numbers of birth date together. For example, if you were born on February 26, 1966, you would add it like this:

2+2+6+1+9+6+6= 32

In numerology, you want to break down any double digit numbers (unless they are 11, 22, 33, etc.).

So if you end up with 32, break it down to 3+2=5.

Someone born on this date then would have the life path number of 5.

If you end up with an 11, 22 or 33, these are known as master numbers, and you don’t break these numbers down as they are considered to carry a higher frequency and have some spiritual significance.

33 – Those who walk the life path of the 33 are known as the master teachers, and are more interested in teaching loving kindness, and uplifting the energies of the planet, than they are in personal goals and achievements.

Like your sun sign, your life path number is another clue into the energies you brought with you into this lifetime, and can give you a deeper understanding of the gifts and talents you are meant to share with the world.
