This is a contribution from our friends over at Strength in Numbers. They have just recently launched their new website, and would like to share their purpose and mission with our readers.
Have you ever wanted more control over your thoughts, emotions and desires?
Have you ever wondered why certain people act the way they do?
Are you interested in learning how to improve your existing relationships, personal well-being, and ability to connect with others?
The principles underlying Strength in Numbers can be the one-stop solution to many of your everyday behavioral and interpersonal issues.
From phone numbers to a cab fare, numbers are an integral part of our everyday lives. Most people are unaware of this, but numbers even have a significant impact on our emotions and relationships. Behaviors and thought processes are influenced by certain characteristics that are associated with the numbers in an individual’s birthday. The sum of the numbers in an individual’s entire date of birth are represented by a distinct pairing of characteristics that create a unique framework of thought for that individual.
A thorough understanding of the principles presented by Strength in Numbers will help you to find heightened emotional and spiritual satisfaction. Even a basic grasp of the fundamentals will help you to achieve fulfillment in your relationships. You’ll soon discover that as increased awareness expands your perspective of each and every relationship you share with others, clarity will soon follow.
As your understanding grows, you’ll be able to trace where your emotions stem from and use this knowledge to eliminate negative thoughts. And as more people become aware, misunderstandings will inevitably fade, and a less stressful reality will be realized for all to enjoy.
A few years ago, I gained interest in alternative ways of thinking as if it were a calling. Myself amongst a few others naturally felt obliged to seek enlightenment at this moment in our lives. So I began my journey as a collective along side my brother and two very close friends of ours who are also brothers. We set out and made sure to read and absorb as many perspectives of consciousness as possible; to gain an unbiased perspective of our own. This is what eventually leads us to numerology. Once we learned the numbers inside and out we began testing the consistencies with beings on all scales. After about two years of continued practice we noticed how, not only do the numbers help you become more aware of yourself and others; but this has the power to break down barriers between humans and promote peace.
Through our heightened awareness’s of this knowledge we noticed and discovered dozens of energies, variations, and ways to apply the numbers that differ from any other previous knowledge we’ve attain from any other source. This was derived from hands on, one on one, experiences with thousands of individuals and observing energies that exist within groups of people.
There are several existing levels on which the numbers operate. It’s important to be aware that to some extent most humans will experience levels of every number. Clarifying where each number is stems from, your emotional core, experience level, life cycle or relationship energy, is important to understanding how that number is influencing you and how to harness it to produce beneficial circumstances.
Who Invented Numerology?
Around 580 B.C., Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician, philosopher and mystic who is considered the “Father of Numbers” determined that number was the essence of all things. He taught his students in his Mystery School that nothing could exist without the influence of numbers. Pythagoras also taught that the human soul is immortal. Pythagoras believed that mathematics could stand alone and that numbers formed the foundation for almost all of philosophy, music, astronomy — literally any creative endeavor!
What is Strength in Numbers?
Strength in Numbers is the study of numbers as it pertains to a person’s date of birth. Using the principles of numerology suggested by Strength in Numbers, people are able to identify characteristics of their personalities that are specifically associated with the numbers in their individual dates of birth. These numerical patterns and their corresponding personality traits reveal both unique personal tendencies, as well as intricacies in relationships.
Strength in Numbers has a personal utility that can help you to determine and alter your own predisposed strengths & weaknesses, and it can also be used as a social tool to help you find compatibility in both existing and future relationships.
The Emotional Core (EC) can either be 3 or 5 digits (with an emphasis on the final digit) – depending on your birthday – that drive your emotions. They directly affect your thoughts and how you feel about yourself on a daily basis. Learning how to focus on the positive aspects of these numbers by not creating negative thought processes can help alleviate stress, and further your understanding of yourself and others.
How to calculate your Emotional Core: Add up all the individual digits associated with your complete date of birth.
- birthday 4/15/1992 would be 4+1+5+1+9+9+2 = 31 3+1 = 4; at the emotional core, this person will have characteristics of a 31/4
- birthday 12/8/1989 would be 1+2+8+1+9+8+9= 38 3+8=11 1+1=2; at the emotional core, this person will have characteristics of a 38/11/2
The Ruling Level (RL) consists of 1 number. Think of it as the lens through which you see and experience the world around you on a day-to-day basis. The qualities associated with your ruling number will be challenged constantly. Identifying situations that amplify these personal characteristics can further your understanding of why certain events in the past may have occurred, as well as find ways to make changes for the future.
How to calculate your Ruling Number: Add up all the individual digits associated with your month and day of birth.
- birthday 1/11/1988 would be 1+1+1 = 3; at the ruling level, this person will have characteristics of 3
- birthday 4/15/1988 would be 4+1+5 = 10 = 1+0 = 1; at the ruling level, this person will have characteristics of 1
The life cycles occur throughout your entire life in 9-year rotations. The qualities associated with each number tend to be especially emphasized during that matching year in the life cycle. Each full 9-year cycle presents the opportunity to prepare for the 8th year – the year of abundance. In the 9th year, residual karma (both good and bad) built up from the previous 8 years will be released. Each cycle starts over with 1 and ends with 9, which allows for new lessons to be learned. Knowing what year you are currently in will help you to focus on how to find success within that year.
How to calculate your Life Cycles: Add up the digit from your ruling level number with the digits from the year of your last birthday.
- (using 6/6/2012 as current date) birthday 1/1/1988, ruling level number 3 would be 3+2+0+1+2 = 8; this person is currently in their 8th year of the 9-year life cycle
