Numerology - My
Escape the Rat
Numerology should not be confused with
Astrology. However, the two have never been in disagreement by results, rather
validating the other. They both were traditionally studied in ancient times.
Pythagoras was a numerologist. Numerology goes back to India, and earlier ages.
In the past there were not only court astrologists, but also court numerologists
and both were used for making decisions. Even the late Buckminster Fuller
wrote extensively about numerology and the unique qualities and nature of
The vibrations of numbers and letters are like musical notes, each having its
own timbre and, in combinations, producing melodies applicable to life. Perhaps
the Reformation condemned both astrology and numerology because it gave
individuals more control over their own beingness. I have known people to
consider this "the work of the devil", and nothing could be further from the
we have a new baby in our family it is my pleasure to run a numerology report
with the birth date and the full name. It gives a good picture of their
personality, as it is highly indicative. This would really enhance the direction
of their life. For instance, if a child has a 5 life path (love of change,
variety and adventure) one would know not to try to restrain their curiosity,
and would not expect them to plod through life rigidly!
The birth date is not variable, but the naming is. I recommend choosing names
before birth, as that is a strong lifelong influence and the influences begin
when the name is chosen! Had I only known I would not have named my son
Christopher Andrew Brown. My reasoning? With the name Brown, my thought was to
give him a name not easily confused with Tom, Dick or Harry.
As each designated letter has an influence, as well as the number of years that
vibration holds an effect, and the completion and turnover of that name brings
quicker advancement in life. Therefore, it will take him 67 years to live
through "Christopher" one time, 29 years to live through "Andrew" and 27 years
for him to live through "Brown"! It is advisable to have one short name for
quickly building experience, such as "Ann" (11 years) or Lee (13 years). I have
a very fortunate great niece who is named Lee Anne. With 13 years for Lee and 16
years for Anne she is quite fortunate!
Then there is the matter of compatibilities! The name of the child can be
compared with the names of the parents, so that conflicting tendencies can be
avoided. The total of all of the letters, shows what one is destined for in
life. It reveals your purpose - your appointed spiritual mission.
In the case of Christopher Andrew Brown, his total is 15/6 - the 1 of
leadership, the 5 of love of adventure, change and variety and the 6 of home,
family and responsibility, often referred to as "the teacher" That is his
His birth date 10-25-1950 indicates a life path of 23/5 he is tactful,
diplomatic, capable of doing two things at once (2), creative and spiritual (3)
and the final number or total (5) repeats an important part of his name total -
thereby doubly accentuating his love of adventure, change and variety! The
leadership is there and, fortunately, the 6 balances as love of home and family
with responsibility, also known as "the teacher" so he does not run around
Also, I really don't recommend naming one's son "Jr." as too much duplication of
vibrations might over-accentuate some mutual vibrations and cause conflict.
Better to let this new member of the family have a clean slate to start off
with! Let's say the father, Sam, is naming his son Sam also. In a prenatal
condition the baby is AWARE of what is going on around him. If the mother
becomes upset with the father and calls him some unflattering names, the baby is
apt to take that personally and have an unpleasant association - or a guilt
I studied under one of the best teachers in Los Angeles, Jean Easton, in 1972.
Shirlie Edrington, a psychic and good friend of mine in California, said to me
one day, "You should take Jean Easton's numerology class." When I asked her why,
she said to ask Jean. I called Jean, who asked my birth date. Then she told me
that I had many psychic abilities, but that this would complete a "spoke in the
wheel for me.
I was a little reluctant, but went to the first class. As an illustration she
used my husband's birth date. I was amazed at how it nailed what had occurred to
him in his life, what was going on at the time, and where it was going (which
later proved to be correct!) It was so right on that it shocked me! Then it was
like meat and potatoes to me, and I was running charts first thing in the
morning and last thing at night, because it helped
me understand myself, my friends and relatives.
also helped me understand why, when I had always been a straight A math student,
I hate routine work with numbers, such as accounting. I dislike filling out
forms. Sometimes I wondered why I had such a facility for math, but did not like
to use it. After studying numerology I realized that numbers to me were like a
game, rather than work. The vibrations are totally different in this respect -
like melodies or chords.
I taught a class for senior citizens at a university. One day to illustrate a
point I casually did a numerology chart. The students were all excited, and off
and on I would do others until they had all been completed. What was so
fascinating was that these people had lived through a number of pinnacles and
challenges already, and they could spot the validity.
"That's right," they would say, "That's when ........" It was a further step for
me to see this lighten them up, encourage them and give them an enhanced view of
life! As the semester came to a close they looked and acted twenty years younger
than at the beginning of the class.
It was a joy for me to be able to help them look at their life in a positive
way, to give them an overview with encouragement and understanding.
The interpretation is always on a positive note, although some people can go
against it - say "I'm not going to do that" but, as Jean said, life always
brings them back to it eventually. It is a valid indicator of life paths- both
major and minor, but it does not force one. If one chooses a negative path and
goes against himself, that is his choice!
One distinctive chart I did was one of the few that had solid zeros as
challenges. The only other chart I have ever found the same was one of my senior
citizens. I asked Jean about the first one, and she told me that this was a
situation where the individual is responsible for making a proper decision. If
the decision is made with ethics their life can be ideal. However, she
added, if the caution is ignored, unethical decisions can tear up his/her life.
I warned the person. Later, when I saw her doing things which were highly
incorrect, I cautioned her to remember her chart. She said flippantly, "I know,
Lois." She didn't, unfortunately, and brought pain to her life and caused
problems for a number of innocent people as a result. She has, finally, a number
of years later, appeared to have turned her life around, and I am glad. Too bad
she didn't listen the first time!
The second person, the senior citizen, was very considerate and ethical, and had
a happy, fulfilling life. Jean gave as an example a helicopter pilot who rescued
soldiers during the Vietnam War. He risked his life constantly for others. When
his helicopter crashed he was horribly burned and shipped to a burn center in
Texas. He was so bad that they did not remove his bandages for a long time. When
they did, they were expecting him to be badly scarred, but he had new skin like
a baby. As she said, when you live in a correct way, miracles can happen!
