I have always been interested in all things mystical. Tarot, numerology, astrology, palmistry… In the hands of a skilled reader and insightful interpreter, they can each offer a fascinating way to look at yourself. I have had several such readings from several different sources. I initially approached the exercise as a skeptic, but I was surprised at how accurate and helpful my readings have been.
Through the magic of Facebook, I have met a lot of really great and interesting people. One of those is Sofiana Rich – a professional name she uses for privacy purposes, but I am blessed to know her personally as well. She offered to give me a demonstration numerology reading (my first!) to share here for anyone who might be as curious or fascinated as I am.
There are several ways to approach a numerology reading. Numbers can be calculated based on a person’s name or birth date. For this demonstration, Sofie chose to read my Life Lesson Number, which is calculated by adding together the numerals in my date of birth then adding those numbers together until you arrive at a single digit number (there are cases where a two-digit number is used, but I’ll leave that to those who know much more that I).
My Life Lesson Number is 7, so here’s what that means straight from Sofie:
Your Life Lesson number is 7. This expresses traits that you are here to incorporate into your being and, therefore, will be tested on them often. At least until you’ve learned the accompanying lessons.
You have strong intuition and insight. When you choose to honor that intuition, your words are full of wisdom, which they are meant to be. You are a person who ought to strive to remain silent unless speaking from Wisdom. You are here to develop your mind, so you need to read, think, and meditate. You must embrace spending time by yourself, preferably in nature. Quiet, natural places will be most helpful in delving into your deepest thoughts, which is where/how you will uncover your destiny.
This is the number of the dreamer and the philosopher. You are likely drawn by the mysterious and mystical. If you believe in, and practice using, your intuition it can be developed into an effective tool in helping other people.
Pythagoras considered 7 the most sacred of all the numbers, and in ancient times children born under this number were trained from childhood to serve as priests or priestesses.
It can be easy for you to see through the outer masks that people wear, straight into the truth of their motives and being. This can make others uncomfortable around you, especially if their motives are suspect.
You like the quiet life, preferring the country to the city. You have a love affair with words, being a person of the mind.
You should develop selflessness and compassion, which will help you to create the world you know could exist. When the world doesn’t match your ideal you may become frustrated and depressed. Developing your mind, your intuition, compassion and selflessness will help you combat the depression as well as help you manifest a better world.
Overall, you have a sound, creative mind.
Here is a direct quote about Key VII “The Chariot”, your corresponding Tarot card: “”The Chariot represents receptivity to the will of the one Source. The keyword attributed to this card is fence or enclosure, and its sense function is speech. Every word we speak is a fence enclosing an idea or thought. An eloquent vocabulary is a powerful tool for protection and preservation, as well as advancement. When we speak we set in motion a vibration that acts upon the ethers, space, and akasha…It is only when we become still, quiet and receptive that we can be victorious. Then the primal force can work through us.” (Numerology and The Divine Triangle by Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker, p142)
Wow! Thanks, Sofie. That was awesome! I really do see a lot of truth in this reading and a lot of things to think on.
If you’re as interested in this sort of thing as I am, I recommend you visit Sofie yourself. You can find her Facebook profile HERE and her Facebook page “Delphic Pandora” HERE. Tell her I sent you. 😉
