Do You Want To Know Your Mission In Life? Find Your Destiny Number

Updated on March 4, 2013

Your Calling In Life May Be Easier To Discover Than You Think

If you're trying to figure out what you were meant to do in this life, then this is the right article for you. Your destiny number can reveal this purpose and in this lens you'll find out exactly how to find it and what it means.

Names have meaning. Your higher self essentially chooses the parents you will have at birth and those parents will choose a name that will allow your soul to reach its fullest potential during that lifetime, but only if you know how to interpret it.

Your name represents a type of blueprint of what you can potentially achieve in this lifetime. Your destiny number will steer you in the right direction for this achievement, but it will ultimately be your choice on whether to pursue your destiny and reach the highs of what this life may offer. Good luck.

Do you believe that numbers and names have power?

Step 1: Your Original Birth Name

The name that appears on your birth certificate should be the one used to figure out your destiny number. This includes the first, middle and last; if it's on your birth certificate, that's what you use even if you don't go by it anymore. Below are a few more things to keep in mind.

  • Mistakes are made on birth certificates. If you're parents accepted the typo and decided to keep your name anyway, then use that name.
  • If you have been adopted, you need to find out your original birth name to use, not your adopted name.
  • If your parents decided to change your name within a day or so of your birth, and they make it official by changing it on the certificate, then you can go by the new name.
  • If you have more than three names, use them. Whatever is on the certificate, that's what you use. Every letter counts.
  • The only thing you disregard on your birth certificate is words like Jr., Sr. or roman numerals. As an example, if you're name is listed as Tim Dotson Jr., then you only use Tim Dotson to figure out your destiny number.

Step 2: Letters and Numbers


In numerology, letters of the alphabet are assigned numbers. The above chart shows you the value of each letter.

Step 3: Calculating Your Destiny Number


  1. First, write your full name down on a sheet of paper, assigning a number to each letter.
  2. Next, add the reduced total of each name. Each name should be done separately.
  3. Now, add together the reduced total of each name.

    If you get an 11,22 or 33, you need to reduce them as usual, but write them like this: 11/2, 22/4 or 33/6. These are master numbers and while they do indicate a more developed soul, they will often mean much more responsibility for you.

    Otherwise reduce to a single digit. This will be your destiny number.
