Life Path Number
Your Life Path number is akin to your Sun Sign in astrology. It reveals life’s purpose including your gifts, talents, inner drives, and abilities, as well as your challenges and how you process emotions. It can also help you discover why you have experienced some of your life’s circumstances.
What are you meant to learn is often what is most challenging for you and is where you have the greatest potential. Each number vibration has a range of energies. We often start out experiencing the challenge of each vibration until we overcome those obstacles and manifest the higher vibration of the number. Here is how to discover your life path number and what it means.
Finding your Life Path number:
There are many ways to do this. For simplicity, here is one of the many ways to find your life path number.
Write out your birthday in numeric form including the 4 digit year. For example if your birthday is October 26, 1994 you write:
10 26 1994. Now add all the numbers across (1+0+2+6+1+9+9+4) = 32. Now reduce (keep adding) the double digit number until you get a single digit. Since this adds up to 32 we add 3+2=5.
A person born on 10-26-1994 has a life path number of 5.
