Could Your Name Hold The Secret Of Your Destiny?

I’ve always been interested in all things esoteric and arcane.  I’ve had my own tarot cards for years and am totally fascinated with all psychic and paranormal phenomena. One of the areas of ancient knowledge that really intrigues me is numerology.

numerology - multiple numbers on a starry background floating towards an outstretched hand

Numerology can be defined as “any belief in the divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events”.

It is the study of the numerical value of the letters in words, names and ideas and is often regarded as being a form of divination.

Johny Cusante is a professional numerologist who has studied this art for almost 20 years and was introduced to numerology in India in the 1980s.  There he met a guru from Madras and was intrigued to see that he was asking people for their name and birth date. The guru told Johny that a person’s birth date and name is enough for a deep analysis of his life, his future, his past, as well as his fortune and misfortune. Johny became his student and lived in India for 5 years where he honed his numerology skills.

Johny explains that the fact our names are something more than a family relationship or just a means of identification can often come as a surprise – especially when we learn that our destiny and life experience are written in the names given to us at our birth.

Actually, if you think about it, numbers and names are everywhere.  From our homes to clocks and calendars, statistics, phone numbers, we live in a mathematical world.  As Johny says “there are no other means of communication – nor escape from this mathematical tabulation of mankind’s interests, desires and ambitions”.

Numerology can help us to know and understand ourselves and gain confidence that we are making the best choices for us – whether that be in our career, our finances or our romantic relationships.

But how does numerology actually work?

Pythagoras, one of the ancient philosophers is generally accepted as the founder of numerology – the “Science of Numbers”.

Numerology today is based on Pythagoras’ ideas – that nature’s laws can be computed with mathematical precision as accurately as arithmetic or physics.

Names and numbers are symbols.  They don’t make things happen on their own but they announce and broadcast the thoughts, feelings and actions taking place in our relationships.

A numerologist will ask you for your full name (the one you were given at birth and your current one) and your date of birth. By analysing the numerical values and patterns of the letters, the numerologist will then be able to analyse your character and make predictions based on the results.

The numerologist will also be able to tell you certain key numbers which will affect your destiny – for example, your Life Path number or your Heart’s Desire number. These numbers highlight different parts of you and your life.

The Life Path number is the most important number in your entire Numerology chart and is based on your date of birth.  It shows who you are at birth and the characteristics you will carry with you for your entire life.

To give you an idea of how numerology works, to find your Life Path number you add together the month, date and year of your birth and reduce the total to a single digit.

So, I was born on 28 May 1964 – 28 + 5 + 1964 = 1997

1+9+9+7 = 26

2+6 = 8 – my Life Path number

My numerology chart will, therefore, contain an interpretation of the characteristics of those with a Life Path number 8.

What can a numerology chart tell you?

What kind of problems can a numerology reading help with, you might be wondering.  Well, there are loads.

Here is a selection of the kinds of thing a numerology reading from Johny Cusante can help you with.

  • what might be causing bad luck in personal and business matters
  • when are the best days to invest money
  • the best career for you
  • who are your true friends
  • how to choose the right partner or improve your love life
  • the gems and stones you should wear to boost your positive vibrations
  • what are your health weaknesses
  • how to use your lucky numbers to win money
  • how to have a guaranteed income

Numerology is an interesting way of stopping to consider how numbers have defined you and the direction of your life. Whether or not you choose to believe the science of numbers, I have found character analysis by numerology to be uncannily incisive. The guidance you receive in your chart may allow you to reframe the questions about your life and give you a different perspective on how to solve your current challenges.

    I remember doing this at school and studying for ages what it meant. It would be interesting to revisit it and see how much is true

    This sounds very interesting and I can relate to this as I remember my gran parents used to get birth charts made for the children when they were born like horosscopes using birth dates.These were used to avoid any negative energy and find matching and compatible spouse.

    I have always been interested in numerology, but I’m not good enough at maths to understand it enough.

  12. 4 May, 2018 / 10:49 am

    I have a friend who’s really in to this kind of thing, I find it quite fascinating. Mind you she lives in Borneo at the moment so she can’t really do my cards for me! 😀

  13. 4 May, 2018 / 6:18 am

    This is interesting as I didn’t really know about numerology x

  14. 3 May, 2018 / 6:52 pm

    I remember looking into numerology many years ago but I can’t remember too much of what I found out now. I have to admit I do find such things interesting though I am unsure how much I believe. I guess you could say I’m open minded.

    I’ve never really thought about Numerology but it sounds fascinating! What has your life path number taught you?
