Discover your Life Path Number

Get clarity on your natural brilliance and what you were born to do in this lifetime.

You possess an inner potential that seeks expression through the work you have been born to do. When you get clarity on your natural brilliance and you know with certainty the field of interest in which you'll excel, you have what it take to go all the way to accomplish your dreams.

Getting this clarity is sparked by your inner quest for self knowledge. Numerology is a sure fire way to get to the truth of who you are. This ancient branch of knowledge signposts you to your Life Path Number which reveals the skills that you can easily master to produce valuable work that feels meaningful, purposeful and fulfilling.

You have the ability to make your mark in the world through work that is a signature expression of your brilliant self. Maybe you're here to make a great discovery, invention, magnificent building, medical breakthrough, work of art or build a technological platform. To rise to this level of accomplishment takes mastery of your natural skills, which requires many hours of dedicated focus and practice. You cannot get there if your work brings you no joy. Only a love for what you do will fuel you the long haul journey that it takes to make it happen.

Numerology is a self-awareness tool that can help you look deep within and come to an understanding of the skills you already possess. Knowing these natural strengths means you can lean in with the desire and intensity it takes to scale such heights of achievement.

Those who have mastered an area of expertise, a skill or the ability to teach it are recognised as being the best in their field. It’s important because if you are the best, then success, fame, status and money typically follow.’ (Murray Johannsen)

You were born with a natural brilliance

Deep down you know that you were born to make a difference in the world. There is a tour de force within you that is bursting to test the limits of your potential to grow, to thrive and to live life to the full. This burning desire intensifies at times in your life when you feel limited by the restrictive circles of the daily grind. It's at times like these where you need to pay attention to this discomfort. There is a friction at play which requires you to take bold action to fire up your mojo to spark your passion for living the life you truly want to lead.

There is a way to breakthrough. There is a way you can put your finger on the pulse of what you were born to do brilliantly and jump start your heart into taking courageous action.

‘You have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the creative expression of your talent, that is the spark that creates affluence. Expressing your talents to fulfill needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance.’(Deepak Chopra)

How you lost your way

Your journey to getting back on track can begin at any point. There is a flame of potential within you that can never be extinguished. Even though at times it may feel diminished, it is always there and ready to be engaged. Often this push to jump start your life comes when you hit a dead end. But before you break through this wall you need to take a step back to break down how you got yourself to this point. It is only natural that in your earlier years you chose a career path influenced by your parents or your peers. Money and immediate prospects are very attractive when you're having to make your own way in the world for the first time. And for a while you probably had some success in proving that you can stand on your own two feet. But in the end, if you're driven primarily by the size of your salary, a lack of desire catches up with you and you find yourself living for the weekend. And heading down a one way street to burnout.

This was my experience. Growing up, I looked to my family for role models and wisdom on how to make a good living. From my father, education and intellect was the platform from which the world could be your oyster. And so I pursued my path to achieving my Masters from the London School of Economics. From my Grandfather, a Director of Terry’s Chocolate factory I saw in him hard work, discipline and industry as the tangible route to material wealth and security. At the age of 22, I landed in the Square Mile, The City, the pulsing heart which pumped the flow of big money around the international arteries of the globe.

For a few years I buzzed from the experience, but increasingly I found myself living for Thursdays to come around and the three nights of fast living and partying to swing into motion. As the years rolled on, my sense of worth equated to the size of my bonus and my colleagues became my competitors to size myself up against. Something started die deep down inside. I found myself looking at my boss and questioning if I really wanted what he had ten years down the line? For the first time in my life I felt I was heading towards a dead.

You will look for a way out. Succumbing to the social pressure to conform is too painful. That primal uniqueness within you naturally wants to assert and express itself.

A force. A voice. A destiny.

When your back is up against the wall, it is your search for self-knowledge will be the catalyst that re-ingites your raison d’etre. You must reconnect with your own sense of uniqueness. The first step towards living the life your desire is always to turn inwards. You must clear away the other voices that might confuse you, your partner, your parents and your peers. You look for an underlying pattern, a core to your character, your truth, that you must understand as deeply as possible.

The Wake-Up Call

I remember the moment I discovered Numerology as the key to 'Know Thyself'. I was on my lunch break. It was June 2001. I was in WHSmiths, Liverpool Street, The Square Mile, when I picked that silver book off the shelf. 'Titania’s Zillions'. I was ‘looking for myself ‘ between the LonelyPlanet guides and the Self-Help section. I opened that book. And my life was never the same again.

Discovering my Life Path Number broke the deadlock. It mirrored back to me my full potential. It was like a chorus of angels appeared in that corner of the City, to ring out the changes. I practically touched the sky when I read the words, ‘Your talents careerwise should bring you before the public as speaker, lecturer, writer or inventor. You will further the cause within your field of interest or business. Remember your capacity to inspire and look upon this as a duty.’ Never underestimate the power of the word to spark your new beginning. This is why I want to share your Life Path Number with you.

Discovering YOUR LIFE PATH NUMBER will change your life

Calculated from your date of birth, your Life Path Number identifies the natural skills you have that you must master in this lifetime. These are skills that you have a natural affinity with that make you feel alive with energy and focus. When you practice them you feel an intensity of desire to learn and a deep and powerful connection to this field of study.

You must choose a working path that gives you the space to get into your groove to practice these skills so you can flourish. You must enlarge your concept of ‘work.’ Work is something connected deeply to who you are. It is something more inspiring. Work provides the practice to master your craft whilst providing a living. As your confidence grows you will navigate the highs and lows, fueled by the love of what you do. Because make no bones about it, you will face obstacles and challenges. The natural path of organic growth means that you constantly have to move out of comfort zone, move through the turbulence to reach a new level of accomplishment. The doubts, tedious hours of practice, setbacks and criticisms from others, all serve to develop your resilience and confidence.

But throughout all of this, those fleeting moment of deep love and connection to what you're doing will move you to the core and sustain you on the the path. Eventually, you will hit upon a niche that aligns to your uniqueness. An opportunity that suits you perfectly. It will set you apart from others.

Formidable. You will stand out for your natural brilliance.

“You are born with a particular makeup and tendencies that mark you as a piece of fate. It is who you are to the core. Some people never become who they are, they stop trusting in themselves, they conform to the tastes of others and they end up wearing a mask that hides their true nature. If you allow yourself to lean into who you really are by paying attention to that voice and force within you, then you can become what you were fated to become, an individual, a Master.” (Robert Greene)

WORK OUT your Life Path Number

There are six digits in your unique numerological code that I refer to as your Prosperity Code. These digits are calculated from the numbers within your date of birth and the those that correspond to the letters in your full original birth name. Each of the six digits provides intelligence to give you clarity on who you are, what you’re here to do and what you’re destined to have in this lifetime. The most important number is your Life Path Number. It's the most important because it’s the one that sets you off in the right direction. Knowledge is power when it is put into action and directed towards achieving what you really desire.

Your Life Path Number shines a light on your natural skill set and points to the career path which gives you the most opportunity to master your skills. These skills are required for you to produce the Great Work that showcases your natural brilliance and the difference you’re here to make in the world.

Your Life Path number is derived from the sum total of the digits that make up your birth date. The total sum is further reduced by adding the remaining digits together until a *single digit is obtained.

e.g. 2nd October 1975

= 2 + 1+0+1+9+7+5 = 25

= 2+ 5 = 7

*The exception to this rule is with the Master Numbers, 11, 22, 33. If your total arrives at one of these double digit numbers, you do not reduce down further.

e.g. 10th May 1976

= 1+0+5+1+9+7+6 = 29

= 2+9 = 11
