how to get your numerology life path number

Your numerology life path number represents your true self or essence. It’s calculated using your birth date, and adding its digits.

In minutes you can empower yourself by discovering:

  • What your soul is here to experience
  • The energy associated with your birth
  • Potential life challenges
  • Your life purpose (yeah, I thought this one would get your attention)
  • The energy associated with your name

This can help you connect with yourself on a very deep level, and cut through the noise of what society says you should be.

(And yes, a number really can teach you all of that!)

What can your Life Path Number tell you?

Your numerology life path number (a.k.a. lucky number) can give you tons of insight into your life; who you are, where you are going, and how you can use your energy to manifest your best life! 

The best part is, it only takes about 5 minutes to calculate your number by hand; the same amount of time it takes to brew a cup of coffee.

How to Calculate Your Life Path Number

Your date of birth is not random. You came to Earth at the perfect time with your own unique energy for the evolution of your soul and the world.

That’s why you use your  full birth date to determine your numerology life path number. (You’ll use your name to calculate your destiny number).

All you need is a pen (preferably a sparkly one) and paper:

Step 1

Write out your birth date numbers. If you were born on September 18, 1992, write:

0 9 1 8 1 9 9 2

09 (September)
18 (day of your birth)
1992 (year of your birth)

Step 2

Add the numbers up:

0 + 9 + 1 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 39

If your numbers equal 11 or 22, STOP

This means your life path number is a Master Number. You don’t need to do anything else, except read about the traits and life purpose of the Master number 11 or Master number 22.

If your numbers add up to anything else, keep adding until you get a single digit number:

  • Take the 39 and add the numbers together: 3 + 9 = 12
  • Since 12 is a double digit number, reduce again: 1 + 2 = 3
  • 3 is a single digit, so you stop

If you were born on September 18, 1992, you are a life path number 3!

Now, let’s talk about what to do with this information to empower yourself.
