# The Beauty of Numerology

Numerology has been defined for thousands of years as the study of the significance of numbers and how they shape one’s destiny.  The Egyptians and Babylonians both used it over 10,000 years ago.  Pythagoras, a mathematician whose theories are still in use today, is believed to have officially organized Numerology in Greece over 2,500 years ago.  Numerology has been used in every culture throughout history to decipher the hidden meaning of a person’s life by analyzing their name and date of their birth.  After all, it is the universal language, right?   The perspective of a person’s life here on Earth as a manifestation of an aspect of the Divine is interpreted through the significance of these numbers.  A person’s life purpose, character, luck, career, and the lessons they teach and learn are all defined primarily by the date of birth and secondarily by their name given at birth.  So now you’re thinking, ‘What is my birth path number?

Your birth path number, suggesting your overall path in life and place in the world, is based on your complete birth date.  It is simple to calculate.  Add up the digits of your birth data, and keep “reducing” (explained via the example below) to a single digit.
If your birthday is April 28, 1968, for example, note it as follows:

• Birth Month is April, which is the 4th month = 4
• Birth Day is 28 = 28
• Birth Year is 1968 = 1968.
• Add up the digits of all of these numbers: 4+2+8+1+9+6+8 = 38
• Further “reduce” this number to a single digit by adding its digits: 3+8 = 11
• And then further reduce it, if necessary: 1+1 = 2

The final digit, 2, is the Birth Path Number!

Southwest Institute of Healing Arts’ Founder, KC Miller, is passionate about Numerology.  In a recent interview, she was more than happy to share some insights on what it does for her, and what her number is!

KC’s destiny number is 5:  7+2+4+1+9+5+4=32 or 3+2=5

5= hard work; craves work of deep impact; restless to do work of substance.

Does this number fit you KC? “Yes, absolutely, now that I realize the true meaning.  There was a time I thought it meant a life of hard work.  That sounded ‘hard’ to me.  However, now I realize that ‘hard’ should read as deep, value, mission driven work.”

How did you learn about numerology? “It seems like I have always known about it.  One book I can remember reading was Dan Millman’s, “The Life You Were Born to Live: A Guide to Finding Your Life Purpose.”

KC, do you make decisions based upon numerology? “Some; for example, how to price my artwork or I might look at it if I am trying to choose a special date.  I usually use it as the ‘is.’  When I know an address, someone’s birthday, name, etc.  Addresses are fascinating.”
