Numerology is an ancient metaphysical practice that studies the relationship that numbers and letters have with our personality and life events. It’s based on the belief that everything ~vibrates~ with energy that can be interpreted, and it aims to describe the blueprint of your personality and life. Pretty interesting, right?
Numerology is a tool for insight. It uncovers your potential and natural strengths, helping you to plan your life’s course in alignment with your talents. Like astrology, your date of birth is important—but unlike astrology, so are the letters in your name. There are various interpretations of these numbers and letters, and right now, we’re talking about your destiny number.
What Is Your Destiny Number?
Also known as your expression number or name number, your Destiny Number is an extremely important element of your numerology chart. This number explores what you are destined to do in your lifetime and who you are destined to become. It points to the strengths you should use and develop to lead a fulfilling life.
When calculating your number, it’s important that you use your birth name (the full name printed on your birth certificate), even if you no longer use that name. Many numerologists are pretty hard-core on that requirement because the energy of this name and its influence doesn’t disappear if you change it. Its impact remains throughout your life.
However, there are plenty of good reasons some people no longer want any association with their birth name. In these instances, many numerologists have softened their stance, saying that your birth name reveals your overall destiny, the blueprint of your life, and who you are within. But your chosen name represents how you see yourself and how others see you, which has the potential to develop dramatically as you mature. Looking at the destiny number of your chosen name could reflect an evolution from one destiny to another.
