It All Adds Up - Chapter 3 (Continued)
The Destiny Number...Why Are You Here??
The destiny number is computed by first using the
letter conversion chart (page ten in Chapter II) to
convert all the letters in the birth name to numbers and
then adding them together. What is my goal in life?
What will I be most successful in doing? What is the
best direction to take? These questions, according to
Adrienne (1988:37), are answered by the letters in our
birth name. She also says it is important to remember
that your destiny number (as derived from the letters in
your name) is the area that must be explored, mined,
and developed in order for your soul to progress.
Your first name gives your most personal lessons;
your middle name often contains hidden abilities you
do not consciously try to develop (or ones you do not
like); and your last name carries the characteristics
shared by your whole family. Jordan (1965:73-74) says
the destiny number is "the prophecy in your name".
The story of what your life is to be, what you were
born to do, and the part you are to play on the stage of
life is written in the scroll and symbols of the name
given you when you were born.
With every birth, she continues, a soul is born. Life
is not a matter of uncertainty and chance. Our names
are written in the Lamb's Book of Life -recorded and
tabulated there by the letters and numbers designating
our names in the same way our births are registered on
legal records required by law. Every name given at
birth is both a Divine command and a Divine promise
of opportunity and personal privilege for those who
keep faith with the destiny number. With regard to
other names we have in life, she says nick names,
name changes, or married names are but channels
through which the destiny number, factored from the
birth name, is worked out and expressed. Goodwin
(1981:31,32) states all of us are gifted in one direction
or another, with our own natural talents and abilities.
We can discover these abilities by finding the sum of
the numeric values of the letters in our birth name.
The destiny number is computed by converting all
letters in the birth name to numbers and adding them
up. Someone named Bob, for example, would use the
letter conversion chart and covert BOB into 262. Then,
by adding 2+6+2, get a result of 10, which would
reduce to (1+0) one. The master numbers 11, 22, 33 &
44 are not reduced to a single digit. The destiny
number reveals the mission or lift purpose. It tells what
God's plan is for allowing our physical manifestation
The Number One Destiny Number
If the sum of the converted letter values in your
name reduce to the number one, your mission in this
Life experience is to be a leader, pioneer, innovator
and an example to others. It will be almost mandatory

willpower needed to stand on your own feet and
succeed by your own efforts. You will first have to
recognize your own individual abilities. Then, assert

others. You will also have to overcome your fear of the

strengths, this will help you from being too sensitive to
what other people say. You would find a home for
your abilities as a gardener, musician, psychologist, or
in computer work. Number eleven is the Master
Teacher who must share insights and become an
example for others. Fame is very possible.

sevens live alone. On the seventh day GOD rest, so,
seven destiny people need quiet time for prayer and
meditation more than most others.

love what money can buy. They enjoy the
accouterments of wealth to the point of being
somewhat ostentatious. Eights succeed in sports,
banking, government and business administration.
They tend to be more involved with career issues over
domestic ones. Female eights often adopt children and
will want a career outside of the home. A house keeper
would be needed to prevent burnout. The advice of a

millionaire and/or becomes a house hold name.

The number nine destiny is a high calling. You are
here to work for world unity through your tolerance,

people of all nationalities. You will have opportunities
to met famous people. You must develop a
philosophical mind and learn not to be too attached to

The Heart's Desire Number - A Light in the Darkness
The hearts desire number (also called the soul
number, soul urge, motivation or the ideality number)
is determined by adding together the converted
numerical values of the vowels in the birth name.
Javane and Bunker (1979:23) reason, if one embraces
the theory of reincarnation, the soul number indicates
what you have been in previous life times. Not easily
recognized by others, the soul number is what you, in
your inner secret self, desire to be. Sometimes this urge
can be so strong that it can over come all other
vibrations and when this happens, according to
Lagerquest and Lenard (1999:239), your soul number
will call you to people and places that resonate with
your own energy. Understanding the hearts desire or
soul number provides insight into what will motivate
others as well as the true inner nature of the person you
are dealing with, regardless of how they appear on the
outside. Goodwin (1991:37) says the heart's desire
number is concerned with deep inner longings. These
longings express those matters which seem most
important to the person, and these important matters
are influential in determining the person's point of
view, the principles on which they act and their general
approach to life.
Occasionally the heart's desire number may be
visible so that others are aware of it. For most people,
however, the hearts desire number reveals information
which is below the surface and rarely expressed
openly. While many people seem almost unaware of
their own soul urge, they can readily identify with it
when it is described. Goodwin goes on to say that to
the outside observer, the delineation of the hearts
desire number often serves as the key to an
understanding of a person, clarifying their actions and
approaches in a most revealing way. Jordan
(1965:108,109) says the heart's desire number reveals
what you will desire to be or do and that no person,
sect, or regime has the right to prevent or destroy the
urge within the soul to live in tune with it's own inner
governing force. What motivates me? What's
important to me? How do I make decisions? According
to Adrienne (1988:87) these questions are answered by
the heart's desire number. Additionally, the heart's
desire number is "your instinctive knowing" and as
such reflects the foundation of your beliefs and
attitudes toward life, your inner motivations, values
The heart's desire number is found by converting
the vowels in the birth name to numbers. Using the
conversion chart, Bob Jones would have an 8 heart's
desire, since e = 5 and o = 6 then 6+6+5=17 and 1
+7=8. The heart's desire number reveals what an
individual chooses to do, be, or have-deep within. It is
the hidden motive and drives one to their goal, or,
causes one to feel unfulfilled. These are the nine basic
