You may have heard of numerology before and perhaps you didn’t give it much credit or brushed it off as some new age mumbo jumbo, but what if you could test it out for yourself and see what it can actually represent? If you found it to be accurate in being able to describe details in your life would you accept that there’s actually some truth to it or brush it off as mere coincidence?
Are You Seeing Repeating Number Sequences?
Up until very recently, I hadn’t given numerology much thought at all, but for the last decade or so, I’ve been seeing 11:11 quite regularly. In fact, I’m sure a lot of my Facebook friends get annoyed with me because I always feel the need to share “11:11!” when I see this on a clock, or license plate or anywhere really.
This number holds a lot of significance to me. Seeing this number has coincided perfectly with my quest for knowledge, truth, and understanding. When I saw it I felt as though it was a message from a higher source telling me that I am on the right path. A little wink from the Universe, if you will. I have had many challenges in my lifetime, and particularly when going through difficult times, I would see this number sequence as if it were a reminder that I was being supported and to keep going.

Sometimes in my life, these number sequences will change. For a brief period I was seeing 5:55 all the time. It’s very interesting, because at times, I would get up, walk to the kitchen, glance at the clock on the stove and it would read 5:55, even though the clock was not set to the proper time. I would then have no recollection as to what I was doing in the kitchen in the first place. So, of course, I felt as though there was something more to this and that I couldn’t brush it off as a coincidence. Upon further investigation into numerology, I concluded that I most certainly was seeing this number sequence for a reason.
The meaning of the number sequence 5:55 suggests that huge changes are unfolding in your life or are about to occur throughout various areas of your life. This is generally a sign of positive change that will bring you into greater alignment with your soul purpose with greater love, vitality, and abundance.
This couldn’t have been more accurate at the time, and so I became increasingly interested in learning about numerology. You may be wondering…
What Exactly Is Numerology?
It is often related to occult teachings and is said to be any belief in the divine mystical relationship between a number and one or numerous events that coincide. Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician who lived from 569-470 BC is believed by many to be the originator of what we now today call numerology, although the origins of numerology predate Pythagoras.
Evidence of numerology has been found throughout the Hebrew Kabbalah as well. As the theory goes, each number has a unique vibration, which gives it certain properties. This is similar to the way crystals are believed to be used. If each number has a vibration then that means various sequences of numbers will have a specific vibration as well and will mean different things when in different combinations.
In mathematics, everything has a number. And many believe that the Universe is made of math, which makes the whole idea of numerology even more interesting. Galileo stated quite famously that our Universe is a “grand book” that is written in the language of mathematics. Mathematics is a lot more than just numbers, however, so we’ll save that whole discussion for another article.
How Does Numerology Work?
Numerology comprises eleven different numbers that can be used to create numerology charts. These numbers are 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11 and 22. Sometimes larger numbers occur when adding various numbers together to form the values, but can be reduced by adding the digits together until the sum achieved is one of the core numbers. You can give numeral value to each letter of the alphabet by listing each letter and its corresponding number. For example:
When you reach number nine, you start back again at one.
And so on.
What Can Numerology Reveal About Your Personality?
Similar to the way astrology can reveal information about your personality and specific traits pertaining to each individual, the process of reading the numerology of your birthdate and name can do the same thing.
By adding the numbers of your birthday together, year month and day you can determine your life path number. By adding the numbers of your given first, middle, and last name(s) you can determine the numerology of your name and your number. You can find out your number yourself using the method described here, but upon doing research for this article, I came across a website that makes this whole process easy for you and you simply type in your first, middle and last name and it will determine your life path number, and provide you with a detailed description of what this number represents. This website also provides you with a “soul urge” number and an “inner dream” number.
Once again, upon doing my own name I was quite blown away by how accurate the information that was provided was. I felt as though it described certain characteristics of my personality perfectly! Although I don’t agree with it all, the bulk of it was pretty accurate, and perhaps I have embodied or will embody these traits in my lifetime.
Here’s a brief summary of the information I was given:
- My number is 7.
- These characteristics include analysis, understanding, knowledge, and awareness.
- Good mind, good at searching out and finding the truth.
- Very capable of analyzing, judging and discriminating, little escapes my knowledge and deep understanding.
- Type of person that can get really involved in the search for wisdom and hidden truths.
- Because of a natural inclination towards the spiritual I may become deeply emerged in religious affairs or psychic explorations.
Perhaps I should warn you that not everything that is said is positive…
- Limited degree of trust in people.
- A tendency to be highly introverted and sometimes self-centered.
- Neither show or understand emotions very well.
