Numerology is a science that describes the meaning of numbers and letters and how they influence our lives. This science was used by the Ancients and dates back to antiquity. Numerology governs every function or aspect and movement on this planet and beyond. This is because each letter and number carries a frequency wave. When these waves are not flowing in harmony, therein lies the recipe for disaster on any scale. When a letter or number is represented or repeated more than once in your name or birth date, the energy of these letters and numbers are more intense.
In Ancient Egypt, a name was seen to be as important as the soul. It was for this reason that it was imperative that the newborn child should be named immediately after birth. To be without a name, was likened to being without a soul; such was the importance placed on names. This importance was based on the teachings of the God Ptah, (also known by other names in other cultures), whom it is said created the Universe by pronouncing the names of all things.
From the time we name a thing we give it energy.
If for example your name is Diana, what is the meaning behind this name of Diana? We know and recognise it as being the name of the Goddess Diana. Whatever powers she is said to have possessed, then this is the energy contained within the name Diana, in addition to the individual energies of each letter. Such is the power of a word or name! Unfortunately, these energies have been lost to us. It is through this science of Numerology, that we can start to reclaim back that which was lost to us and begin to enrich our lives and those around us.
Every number or letter in is partially or wholly build or made up of a square or circle, and each of these symbols represents 360 degrees. The circle is 360 degrees, and the square has four corners, and each corner is made up of 90 degrees. 4 x 90 = 360.
The Universe is composed of structure and rhythm. The structure of the atom for example, and its rhythmic spin of electrons, protons and neutrons, and so on. Structure and rhythm can also be found in numbers, by using the four major arithmetical formulas or calculations of addition, subtraction, division or multiplication.
