The Science of Numbers

What is numerology actually all about? What is scientific about it – or is it just all spooky woo-woo?

When I was asked this question by a client recently – all I can remember is staring at her forehead and wondering if she used botox…
My explanation was not very well formulated and I think the lady was turned off numerology for life afterward. Oh well – but, her forehead was very smooth and shiny…

So many of us are trapped in this feast/famine cycle in our lives – swinging from loving life to wanting to slit our wrists with a blunt nail file. The titillation is now, of course, to find answers to life’s pressing questions. (Does that include: Honey, what’s for lunch?) Although there are many wise ways to find these answers; personally, I would stick to only a few, since THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY to do all of them! You’ll just end up cross-eyed and salivating from the mouth. Seriously!
One of the ways to find out who you are supposed to be in this life; what it is all about and why, I recommend Pythagorian numerolgy: It is a tool that provides insight through self-understanding, through which we are able to direct a more determined life path.
The numerology process that I have investigated is the one formulated by Pathagoras.
Fabulous! So, now that I am slightly off the hook here – I am going to give you the answer to the above question taken from THE COMPLETE BOOK OF NUMEROLOGY – discovering the inner self – by David A. Phillips, Ph.D.
Published by Hay House – ISBN 13: 978-1-4019-0727-3 / ISBN 10: 1-4019-0727-X

“Numerology recognises that numbers are vibrations, and each vibration is different from the next due to the number of cycles it oscillates at per second. The variation in each case is a number. “
It is well known in astrology, metaphysics, quantum physics and science that the universe speaks (so to speak…) a mathematical language.
“Every sound, colour, fragrance and thought is a vibration, and each dances to the tune of its inherent number, each in its distinct way connected to life.”
…and since it has been found and proven that humans are made up of similar building blocks in their bodies as found elsewhere in outer space bodies - thus, my dearies, it does not require any stretch of the imagination, whatsoever, to deduce that the emanations of vibrations by a human form are intimately connected to the vibration of numbers.
“ As such, understanding numbers provides us with a simple and accurate meaning of our life in the same way as a road map helps us to navigate a route that we have not previously travelled.”
Born in 608 B.C., Pythagoras sought to free the human mind from political and religious confinement.
Pythagoras founded his own university and Crotona, a Greek colony in southern Italy, around 532 B.C. The major course taught was in self-development, and was provided in a three-part curriculum… The second trimester was called ‘Purification’ and its essence was the understanding of life; its purpose and how to work in harmony with that purpose, as taught through the Science of Numbers, more commonly known today as numerology.

When performing this type of numerological outlay – it is not a simple 30 minute process…, To do it properly and in detail (and written out) requires some time – and a full outlay of this kind would take a full day to complete, at least.
Firstly, the person doing the layout would need a good metaphysical understanding of numbers – and also of the so-called ‘three aspects of the self’.

Such a layout would include the following:
1. The calculation of the birth chart according to your date of birth – with other words the vibrations and potentials you were born with (includes schematic).

2. The arrows of individuality – pointing to strengths and weaknesses in relation to the number vibrations held on the birth chart. Thus, the difficulties and strengths you are facing in your life (depicted on birth chart).

3. The ruling number – The natal ruling number depicts the main vibration of your purpose for being. However, it is supposed to be a marker (as all other numbers) and is not fixed, as one can definitely and should attempt to evolve beyond that.

4. The day number, which is a lesser concern in regard to the ruling number.

5. Schematic calculation of your nine-year cycle – these cycles facilitate the progress we are able to achieve as we evolve through the process of life on earth.

6. The Pyramids – these symbolise a twenty-seven year cycle in a human life by which one can deduce four physical peak ages of change in one lifetime and what they would basically entail. (It also has a special significance for Biblical scholars, for it is the number of chapters of the fourth book of the Bible – called Numbers.

7. The Astrology/Numerology connection

8. The Name chart – in which is deduced the power held by the vibration of your name in relation to mathematical numbers.

The Way Of The Wizard

Instead of writing a book review; you should know me in this; I am going to pick up the angle with a personal story:
The Way Of The Wizard – 20 Spiritual Lessons For Creating The Life You Want ISBN 0 7126 0878 8 - copyright Deepak Chopra 1995
…The book was first published by Harmony Books – and in SA, by Random House.

This is a fascinating and well-written book. Besides being written by one of my favourite authors – The Way Of The Wizard is a book that teaches one to reclaim what is already yours. The book came to me in a strange and quite unexpected way – I was helping a friend clean out his garage and, lo and behold, I spotted the book – already thrown in the trailer meant for the dump. Now…, if something is going to present itself to me in such a direct way, I am going to follow up on it. It was lying in full view – all “abused”, but the pages all in good condition. I asked my friend if I could read it…

…anyway, I could hardly put the book down and read it trough in 5 days. It is not a long book and is easy to read. What struck me was the way in which the book alternates between myth and human reality – correlating between them.
Don’t make the mistake of labelling this book with a Harry Potter label, just because of the use of the word and imagery of WIZARD… absolutely not.

“Complete freedom and fulfilment come from rediscovering the magic we have lost – but that remains within our grasp. Once we have found the wizard, the inner guide, deep inside ourselves we will be lifted from the ordinary, humdrum world to a new one dominated by miracles.

This extraordinary powerful book offers a series of lessons, together with full explanations and advice, on how to walk the wizard’s way. The result is a practical and accessible guide to one of life’s shortest but most rewarding journeys: the one into the realm of boundless possibilities that exists within and all around us.”

With this book I actually sat with a pencil – making notes…, something I rarely do.

What is the difference between being psychic and intuitive?

NOUN - Psychic
1. A person who supposedly contacts the dead. A medium.
In gnostic theologian Valentinus' triadic grouping of man the second type; a person focused on intellectual reality (the other two being hylic and pneumatic).
Well…, I am definitely not a medium (you know…, like Whoopi Goldberg in the movie Ghost) – and explanation two went over my head.
To put it into plain English, I would say that the term “psychic” is an umbrella term. It denotes the various kinds of psychic abilities available to us. Everybody has psychic ability – it’s just that some choose to ignore this or don’t believe in it at all (and thus do not realise the ability), some dabble in it and others realistically manifest it. Calling somebody psychic is like saying you are a musician or a doctor – the question is what kind of musician or what type of doctor: One could be more adept at one or two of the clairs for example (clairvoyance, clairsentience or clairaudience); one could classify oneself as an empath, tarot reader, cheirologist (God knows if I spelt that correctly – not even the mighty WORD has that in its repertoire – it’s people who read hands ((not only palms))) or channeller; etc. The list is long…
The thing is that a psychic will in all probability rely on several means to perform this psychic-thing, concentrating on and specialising in one or two specific areas. And, yes, one would also find psychic mediums.

An intuitive, on the other hand, relies slightly more on basic – yup, you guessed it! – intuition.
Everybody is born with an innate sense of intuition. Sorry loveys, but you can’t get away from that fact. Once again, however, it can be realised, or not. We use intuition even if you ignore the existence of it – all of us use it in our daily activities and business. It is not something you think about – and is part and parcel of the human make-up. Simply put, it’s a survival tool.
The Oxford dictionary defines intuition as: - the ability to understand or know something immediately, without conscious reasoning - .
And – an intuit is someone who reasons through intuition. Go figure!

How does one achieve and keep inner peace?

…what inner peace is and how to keep it actually go hand in hand.
You see, to maintain a believable peaceful outlook, one also needs to have and maintain an inner harmony, because it is this unseen energy of inner peacefulness that other people will pick up on; and this peacefulness cannot be maintained if it is not real – one cannot have it if it is not truly present; it can also not be truly experienced if not honestly felt. So, this is one of those wonderful scenarios where it cannot be unless it is..

That wonderful clich̩ of inner peace Рas if we are all supposed to be happy and content, wafting about on tulle, lace and incense Рmight as well be on Prozac for dogs Рyou might have less of a headache.
But seriously though, inner peace is not something you are going to get at 20% discount at Woolies nor pick up at bargain price at Morkels. It is not something that can be taught you by somebody else – it can only be shown. You can do as much Yoga as you want, deary, but you will never find the contentment of inner silence if you do not put practice into knowledge. Belief in something is not the complete picture – a belief is ultimately something that needs to be justified with a YES or NO.
Knowledge is inner knowing – it is your own truth that need not be explained to anybody and also has no requirement for anybody to prove it to you – for wanting something proven to others is an indication that you still have not proven it to yourself…, and this will not promote inner peace.

Inner peace can only be attained through the acknowledgement of everybody as his or her own highest authority – as seemingly painful as that might be. When your eyes have opened more to appreciate the processes of creation instead of the daily slog of survival, it is natural to be saddened by those who reach for their potential, but are drawn back by their own fears of experiencing. A very dangerous thing lies in making decisions for other people, because you think they would be happier for choosing to take the road of experiencing – you are not them – we are individuals for the reasoning of that unique individual experience. My truth may not be yours and yours not mine. Truths may be similar – and frequently are - , but they still are the truths of the individual experiencing them.
If you can respect this, you can respect all. If you can believe this, you will come to know it. If you can hold this in your consciousness always, you will live with inner peace – and this will lead you on the path of judging nothing and no-one – which, in turn, is the only thing that will divulge to you the inner knowing of true inner peace.
