What Is the Proper Way to Calculate Your Numerology Life Path Number?

Updated on May 6, 2020

What Is Numerology

There are many ways in numerology on how to calculate your life-path, but even men and women who have been studying numerology for yearsss, don't know the true "essence" of how numerology truly works.

Numerology is a calculated way of numbers on how the universe works. Each number in numerology vibrates a certain frequency which results in certain traits or ways, paths, in how one would operate due to that frequency.

In numerology there are 9 numbers, including, double numbers, which are, Master Numbers. These numbers are:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22, 33, 44.

Most numerologists, almost all numerologists, say in order to get your life-path, you must add up "every" digit in your "birth-date" to a single digit, unless it is a master number, 11, 22, 33, 44, to... get your life-path number.


Ways Of Calculating Numerology Life Path

There are many ways of doing this. You can add your birth-date all at once like this:

Example: Feb/25/1970

02 + 25 + 1970 = 1997, 1+9+9+7 = 26, 2+6 = 8, which means... they are a "life-path" 8.

Then... there is a way where you have to condense each number individually, "as" you are adding the digits together:

2+2+5+1+9+7+0 = 26, 2+6 = 8.

(-Which almost always ends up as the same, but sometimes, can result in a "different" master number by these "different" calculations.)

Then... the most common and "known" accurate way, would be to reduce each digit, "separately" to a single digit, and then, add the final results of each number (month, day, year) together.

0+2 = 2, 2+5 = 7, 1+9+7+0 = 17, 1+7 = 8. 2 + 7 + 8 = 17, 1+7 = 8.

And so you see... almost all these ways add up to the same number, but "sometimes" "can" result in a master number for the different forms of calculations, where for other ways of calculating, there would be no master number.

Truth About Numerology

So... which is the "proper" way of calculating this life-path? Are you ready for a shock? It's none!

Truth is, all of these fail, and are incorrect, because.... the "year" number of your birth-date, is irrelevant.

Why it is irrelevant is because the year number actually has no significance with the "rotation" of the world, which is what... months and days are based on. The "year" of our birth is basically... fiction. The earth is billions of years old, and so, the "real" year number would be a number we can't even grasp, and would be ridiculous to even count. Also why it is irrelevant, is because it is a man-made creation and is just a count of "when" Jesus died, therefore, it holds no significance upon when you were born.

Saying this has an affect on you, would be like saying the vibration of the hospital's address you were born at has a significance on you, which isn't true, because why the universe has a significance on you, is because, you were born at a precise part of the universe when you were born, and you are a part of it, and since you were born on "that" day, that part of the universe, you carry that "true" energy.

Correct Way To Calculate Life Path

So now you're wondering, what is the correct way to calculate your life-path then? Well... it is to add your "month" of birth, with your "day" of birth. This is your "true" life-path, because the days and months are perfectly calculated with the earth's rotation, and is perfectly numbered in months and days.

We will use my birthday for an example. I was born on July, 20th, so.. I add 7+20 = 27, 2+7 = 9. I am a 9 life-path. If we went with how some people prefer to calculate, and condense it "before" adding.. for me, it would be the same. 7+2 (minus the 0) = 9.

If you want to know what each life-path means, I recommend finding their meanings all-over the web, there is a wealth of information, but here... I will leave the small characteristics of each number for you.

1: Individuality, action, bold.

2: Cooperative, intuitive, sensitive.

3. Socializer, fun, freedom, travel.

4: Moral, constructive, building-foundations.

5: Freedom, philosophical, changing.

6: Kind, nurturing, caring.

7: Truth-seeker, spiritual, perfectionist.

8: Authoritative, materialistic, organized-planning.

9: Humanitarian, Universal, Wisdom.

11: High-Spiritual-Plane, Multidimensional, Highly-intuitive.

22: Highly-organized, intuitive, high-achiever.

33: Teacher, motivator, selfless.

44: Dreams-to-reality, healer, Immense-energy.

      Neil: The only way we would be able to reach life-path 44 is from being born on "April 4th" 4+4 = 8, but.. you never reduce "Master-Numbers" and I know you're thinking you need to add it up all through the 20s and 30s.. lol, but that isn't the case, because the numbers "vibrate" a frequency based on the shape and sound... making it 44 without the ridiculous dogma we're conditioned to "understanding". Hope you grasp that.. and see that it is not a "method" but, "reality" and if you looked at the knowledge from the article, you would clearly see that. Let go of being a skeptic.. and learn to "understand" what works for you. Peace :)

      With the method you've explained above, how would one ever have a life path number- '44', since that's one of the master numbers as you have mentioned. The highest number possible is 43 (Dec, 31st--- 12+31) but that reduces to 4+3=7 of course. So, either 44 is NOT a life path/ master number or this method is wrong.

      Ana: Nice, does it resonate more to you without the year-number, than what your number would have been calculating it with your year-number?
