Numerology is a branch of knowledge that uses numbers to find meaning in a name. How does it work? It’s very simple. Every letter of the alphabet has a numeric value from 1 to 9. Simply find the number associated with each letter in a name, then add those numbers together, and you have the numerology value for that name. In this article we’ll create a simple numerology chart, and explore the meaning of the 9 numerology numbers.
Let’s start by making a simple numerology chart. You’ll need a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Write the numbers 1 through 9 spaced out across the page. On the next line down write the first nine letters of the alphabet, one letter under each number. Move down to the next line and write the next nine numbers in the alphabet, and so on. You’ll see that the letter E is below the number 5, and the letter S is below the number 1.
The simplest method of numerology is to write down the number value of each letter in a name, then add up the numbers. If your total is over 9, which it likely is, then just break that number into individual numbers, and add those numbers together. For example, 10 would be 1 and 0, and 1 and 0 add up to 1. The total 36 would break down to 3 and 6, and when you add those numbers together you get a new total of 9.
Once you’ve used your simple numerology chart to help you find the number values, and you’ve added the numbers together enough to come up with a single digit number.. What do the numbers mean?
