Numerology-Study of numbers,symbolism,and significance that they play.
NUMEROLOGY the study of numbers, and the occult manner in which they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies, as an integral part of the cosmic plan. Each letter has a numeric value that provides a related cosmic vibration. The sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in the name provide an interrelation of vibrations. These numbers show a great deal about character, purpose in life, what motivates, and where talents may lie. Experts in numerology use the numbers to determine the best time for major moves and activities in life. Numerology is used to decide when to invest, when to marry, when to travel, when to change jobs, or relocate.
Although the exact origin of Numerology hasn’t been truly determined, there are strong clues. The Pythagorean and Chaldean schools of numbers are the most commonly used. Chaldean Numerology is older, but the Pythagorean system of numbers is far more popular especially in the west.
Pythagoras was considered a master mathematician. Born in Greece in the 6th century B.C., he demonstrated a natural gift with numbers. Many people are familiar with his theorems in geometry. However, he is also considered to be the Father of Modern Numerology. It has been recorded that he spent many years of study in Egypt and other parts of the world learning the ancient science of numbers. He later brought this knowledge back to Greece, where he taught for nearly forty years, and established a college and philosophy of numbers that would bear his name to this very day.
It was said that Pythagoras taught in secret. That each student, selected with care, had to go through a five-year period of perfect silence for the purpose of contemplation to develop a deep sense of faith. Furthermore, his students had to commit his teachings to memory, for it was forbidden to put any of it in writing. It was only after his death, around the year 500 B.C., that his faithful followers broke with this tradition.
The Chaldean system of numbers—better known as Mystic Numerology—gives us an even stronger clue to the age of this science. Astrology, Numerology, and other occult studies were considered a religion, but not in the way we would know it today. Many Chaldean priests were also famous astrologers. They held the belief that all things were part of Divine Providence, and that the planets were simply heavenly interpreters. In the time of Alexander the Great, around 356 B.C., the Chaldeans believed that their knowledge of Numerology and Astrology went back at least 473,000 years. Perhaps it was no accident that, in time, Chaldea and the occult became synonymous. The Chaldean system of numbers is still in use today.
There are other schools of Numerology as well, all reflecting their individual places of origin as well as how they’re applied. For instance, there were the ancient Brahmins of India. Cheiro (1866-1936), a leading palmist, numerologist, and psychic of his day, credited these mystic men of the East for much of what he knew. In ancient Japan, there’s a system known as Ki, based upon certain numerical patterns found in the birth date. This system is slowly coming back into public notice. Then there is the sacred system of Hebrew Numerology, better known as the Kabalah, which is based upon the meanings of letters and sounds. And there’s still another system coming from Africa that uses numbers for divination purposes. No matter what part of the world we look at, there’s a system of Numerology that had its beginnings in the dawn of time.
Numerology has also been attacked for going against the laws and teachings of God. In fact, just the reverse is true. The Bible, the Talmud, the Koran, even the Egyptian
