The dictionary defines Numerology as the Number symbolism, especially the idea that certain numbers have sacred meanings. Classical Hebrew writers, following the lead of other Mesopotamian cultures, often embody certain numbers with sacred meanings--such as three, seven, twelve, forty, etc.
The roots of numerology date back thousands of years and variations of it can be found in most cultures throughout history. Whilst many people dismiss it, it has been taught and studied by some of the most respected mathematicians throughout history.
Basically, it analyzes and uses the combinations of the letters in your name and the date on which you were born to give clues as to your character, strengths and weaknesses, natural talents, motivations and life purpose. You can take the information given to you by numerology and use it to help get back on track and move in the direction you were born to take. That's not to say that everything is set in stone and you HAVE to do things a certain way, but by making simple changes in your life that are more in line with your numerology chart you may be pleasantly surpised at how everything seems to improve, things fall naturally into place and you find the happiness you have been seeking. Straying too far off the path laid out for you by your numbers may have the opposite effect and make life seem difficult, stressful and unfulfilling.
