Numerological Life Paths: An Introduction.

Introduction to Numerological Life Paths

Numerology is a unique system for self-development, personal growth, and spiritual evolution that is very similar to Astrology. While astrology takes note of the planet’s and other celestial bodies’ movements, numerology looks at the numbers and language that shape us. Your Life Path is the main ‘foundation’ of numerology, which is derived from your birthdate (numerical values). Yet, other important numbers in numerology are taken from your name, such as the Expression/Destiny and Soul Urge/Heart’s Desires numbers.

The life paths specifically help you to discover key insights into your personality, likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, gifts, talents, and the challenges you’ll face- the areas for improvement throughout life. Just like astrology, numerology shapes and identifies your character, core personality, and secret and hidden needs, wishes, and intentions for the things you do! Multiple life areas can be uncovered and mastered, including health, well-being, spiritual influences and belief systems, wealth, opportunities for prosperity, friendships, social groups, home and family life, love, romance, sexuality, and much more…

The main aspect of numerology is your Life Path number. This is derived from your birth date. It shines a light on your life path- your unique destiny- specific soul’s blueprint, and overall frequency It’s the things that make you “you.” Your life path is your core and essence, and learning about it can open unseen portals of growth and healing, moreover powerful transformation.

As a holistic and divinatory system, numerology provides multiple dimensions of doorways to awakening, self-awareness, higher wisdom and perspectives, opportunities for rebirth, positive alchemy, and positive transformation. It can connect you to your soul, while aligning you with your Higher Self. This then activates and energizes dormant gifts, memories, and missed opportunities from when you were unaware and unconscious. Your life path is your secret blueprint of wisdom and information guiding you back home… to your soul.

The other main aspect and benefit of numerology you should be aware of is how it awakens you to infinite possibilities! Through discovering yourself on a deeper level, you become more aware of the vibrancy of life’s interconnectedness, which includes synchronicities. Magical synchronicities are an integral part to learning about your life path number. There is a divine relationship between numbers and real-world events, and further between intuitive feelings & instincts and manifestation in the material-physical world. The universe is conscious, holistic, awake, aware, and interconnected, just as you are! The more you uncover the secrets to your holistic self, the more you start to see nature’s as well as the universe’ patterns working in divine harmony and union. Nothing in the physical universe is random… Your life path switches on your light, your Higher Self, so you can start to see the other lights in your life.


Your life path is the main number in numerology that provides a strong foundation for self-evolution and personal learning portals. It’s the main number where you can understand your desires, motivations for life, and needs. It’s the core of your soul and spirit. It highlights your psyche, subconscious forces, primal drives and desires, your higher mind, and emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual influences and motivations in various life areas. Everything hidden, dormant, or secret “behind the scenes” can be brought to full conscious awareness. In essence, your life path number is the basis of your personality, true self, and character- it’s your roots.

Your life path is either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22, or 33. Numbers 1- 9 are the main life path numbers, while 11, 22, and 33 are the “Master Numbers.” Life paths 1- 9 are calculated from adding all the numbers in your birthdate together, yet 11, 22 and 33 occur when the final number cannot be reduced down any further. For example, a birth date of March 14th 1992 would look like this:

3 (March) + 5 (14th= 1 + 4) + 3 (1992= 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 equals 21, and then 2 + 1 equals 3).

So, March 14th 1992 gives a life path of 11. This is a Master Number, however all master numbers are also the single digit number as well. All master numbers are higher vibrational frequencies of the single digit, which means that someone with a master number also holds the life path of its single counterpart. 11 are also life path 2, 22 are also life path 4, and 33 are also life path 6.


To calculate your life path number you need to use your date of birth. This is your full date of birth: the day, month and year. For example, if we take Albert Einstein’s birthdate of March 14th 1879, his life path would be calculated like this:

  • 1 + 4 = 5 (14th/ Day), 3 (March/ Month), 1 + 8 + 7 + 9 = 7 (Year).

  • 5 + 3 + 7 = 15…. 1 + 5 = 6

  • As this is a single digit number, Albert Einstein had a life path 6.

Because 15, the total sum of all the numbers, is not one of the master numbers; this double-digit is reduced further. This is the case all the time- the only time a double digit number remains is when it is an 11, 22 or 33. It really is this simple!

Here is a great online Numerology calculator. You can also use it to calculate the other numbers, not solely your Life Path! -
