A Brief Introduction To Numerology
Numerology is the study of numbers and their meanings. Numbers are everywhere and they influence human life. Numerology uses calculative means of obtaining information about one's personality, capabilities, and future. The basis of numerology is that numbers have an "inner nature" and "vibration." Similar to Astrology, Numerology uses an individual's full name, birthplace, and birth date in order to determine what numbers influence you and your life.
Numerology can sometimes refer to any of many systems, traditions or beliefs in a mystical or esoteric relationship between numbers and physical objects or living things.
In letter in a name has a numeric value that represents a certain vibration. The numbers in your name and date of birth can give a lot of information about your own character, motivation, purpose, and talent. Even a countries and states have numerological vibrations based on their name. Numerology can be used to find the best time to invest, get a new job, get married, move, and travel. To create a complete numerology chart, you need your birth date and full name, as written on the birth certificate.
The numbers used in Numerology are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 22. Each of these numbers has it's own unique vibration and represents different characteristics. The numbers representing your birth date or your name are repeatedly added together until a core number is found, 1 to 9, or one of the master numbers, 11 and 22.
The History Of Numerology
Historians believe that modern numerology is an integration of the teachings from Ancient Babylonia, Pythagoras and his followers, (6th century B.C. Greece) Astrological philosophy from Hellenistic Alexandria, early Christian mysticism, the occultism of the early Gnostics and the Hebrew system of the Kabbalah. The Indian Vedas, the Chinese "Circle of the Dead",and the Egyptian "Book of the Master of the Secret House", (Ritual of the Dead) are records giving strong evidence that Numerology dates back thousands of years.
Pythagoras and other philosophers of the time believed that because mathematical concepts were more "practical" (easier to regulate and classify) than physical ones, they had greater actuality. This is an idea in harmony with philosophical pragmatism and a choice for permanent concepts over changeable physicality.
St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354 - 430) wrote " Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth." Similar to Pythagoras, he too believed that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace.
In 325 A.D., following the First Council of Nicaea, departures from the beliefs of the state Church were classified as civil violations within the Roman Empire. Numerology had not found favor with the Christian authority of the day. It was assigned to the field of unapproved beliefs along with astrology and other forms of divination and "magic." Through this religious purging, the spiritual significance assigned to the heretofore "sacred" numbers began to disappear. In spite of this suppression there were still many devout believers, who kept the secret knowledge locked away.
The Magick Of Numbers
Numbers can play an important part in magickal workings and rituals. They are also a part of many of the tools and images that Wiccans and other Pagans use regularly. For example, the tarot, for instance, uses the numbers on the cards to add a layer of meaning to the images. The number three is a symbol of the goddess in her triple aspect (Maiden, Mother, and Crone). Four is the number of the elements, and the pentacle is five points.
The Use of Numbers in Our Practice
Numbers can actually intensify your magick. By choosing numbers that correspond with your intent in an emotional or metaphorical way, you can add strength to your intent. For example, if you were doing a ritual to honor the Goddess you may choose to use multiples of three. You could sing a chant three times, use 3 candles on your altar to represent each of her aspects, put 3 ingredients into a charm or incense, or use the Empress card (numbered III.) as a focal point on your altar.

There are many different methods of calculations include Chaldean, Pythagorean, Hebraic, Helyn Hitchcock's method, Phonetic, Japanese and Indian.
In most cases, numerology uses just the name and birthdate of an individual to analyze and define the personality or forecast.
The following is an excerpt from a numerology page at globalpsychics.com on numerology calculation methods.
CHALDEAN/KABBALAH METHOD is said to be only true and reliable system. It was originated by ancient Chaldeans, passed on to the Hebrews. The knowledge became part of the Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism/mystical tradition). This system of numerological calculation was taught to Jesus by the Essenes.
Western/Pythagorean Method doesn’t work as well because the values aren’t based on sound vibration – the Western system is considered more of a "Parlour Game", partly because it doesn’t emphasize compound numbers (destiny).
There is scientific rationale correlating sound vibration with organic patterns.Pythagoras (Greek philosopher & mathematician 2,500 yrs ago) devised a system of numerological calculation that was lost when he fell from favour. Some years later a student of his assigned numbers to the letters of the alphabet, sequentially, instead of according to sound vibration. This system is damaged, as our modern alphabet didn’t exist then. Interesting, the Pythagorean system formed the spiritual basis for many secret societies e.g. the Masons.
For the sake of simplicity, the Dimension1111.com numerology calculations are based on the Pythagoras method and is best for a beginner who just wants to get the feel for how numerology works.
