# How Numbers Affect Our Lives

## 10 Jul How Numbers Affect Our Lives

Numbers have always held a deep significance, in many cultures and societies. Many of us have favourite or lucky numbers which give us reassurance when we encounter them, and we’re all familiar with the idea of certain numbers, such as the number 13, being unlucky.

In myths, legends and traditional sayings, the same few numbers are seen far more than others. We get three wishes from a genie, there are three Fates, and Cerberus, the watchdog of the Underworld, has three heads. There are seven deadly sins and seven virtues, and seven sisters were pursued by Orion. There are nine muses, Odin spent nine days hanging on the tree Yggdrasil, and a stitch in time saves nine.

In our daily lives, we constantly refer to numbers in reference to ourselves; our birth dates and National Insurance or social security numbers, for example.

Numerologists also say that there is a number connected with something even more personal – our own names. By converting the letters in the name to numbers and adding them together until you reach a single digit, you can find your name number, as follows:

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

To calculate your name number, write your name out in full, and beneath it write the numbers for each letter, like so:

Add these numbers together, then add the digits together until you reach a single digit:

2+6+5+7+ 8+7+3+1+5+4 = 48, 4+8=12, and 1+2 = 3.

This single digit expresses a strong aspect of your personality. In my case, my name number is three, which relates to communication and expression, qualities which I use every day in conveying my psychic readings.

The qualities of the name numbers are as follows:

1: Leadership and individuality

2: Balance and cooperation

3: Communication and expression

4: Stability and order

5: Adventurousness and freedom

6: Responsibility and nurture

7: Knowledge and understanding

8: Practicality and material worth

9: Humanitarianism and selflessness

If you are seeking a change in your life, you may be able to encourage this change by changing the name by which you introduce yourself, or even just the spelling, to one which has the number of the quality you wish to encourage. For example, while “Katie” has a name number of 1, if she wishes to encourage her communicative side, she could adjust the spelling to “Katy”, which has a number of 3. By choosing to introduce yourself by a particular nickname, or by your full given name, you can encourage the qualities of the number related to that name to shine through.

There are many ways in which you can encourage the changes you wish to see in yourself, and set yourself on the life path you wish to take. For more information and guidance, you can call me or my team of talented psychics.
