I’m a transplanted California girl who’s living up to her 3 Life Path calling.
I’ve had a varied resumé and life experience, including (but not limited to) filling donuts, being the janitor at my Uncle’s cable company, slaying it at McDonald’s (”Do you want a large fries with that?), being a movie extra, waiting tables . . . and that’s just a small smattering of my early job experience.
Due to my parents’ divorce, when I was in 6th grade, we moved to a small town in Missouri, where I learned a thing or two about feeder pigs and the Bible Belt.
After a few detours, I landed in Columbia, Missouri where I earned a B.A., M.A., and PhD in Theatre, got married, and had two daughters (coupled with two dogs, goldfish, White’s tree frogs, and god-only-knows-what-else).
In the mid 1990’s, the death of my mother catapulted me onto a “spiritual” path, where I was driven to learn everything I possibly could about energy, intuition, and healing.
This is where my story might start to connect with you!
If I’ve learned anything in my 25+ years of working with people in the healing arts, it’s this: Personal and spiritual growth is ignited when we have a “dark night of the soul experience. This is a Universal Truth!
This is usually where you and I cross paths.
I had to experience a “spiritual crisis” in order to accelerate my engagement with exploring higher levels of consciousness.
For me, it showed up as my mother passing away from metastatic lung cancer in tandem with an unraveling marriage that I resisted acknowledging.
My mother’s death collided with my completion of my Doctorate. I had two young daughters and felt as though my world as I knew it had burned to the ground.
I consider that time and place to be the beginning of a “spiritual gauntlet” where I began questioning everything and delving into metaphysical studies.
Many people refer to it as a “dark night of the soul.” Yet whatever name we give it, this was an absolute game-changer and shifted my life’s direction forever.
As for numerology: I didn’t find numerology, it found me.
It’s a cosmic joke that I have become a numerologist because I absolutely despise math! It has been my most anxiety-producing subject.
I was walking through a bookstore and a book jumped out at me. It wasn’t a numerology book— if it had been about numerology I would never have picked it up! It was a book that contained some numerology information and I bought it for my daughter.
Before I gave the book to her, I looked through it and, just for fun, calculated my Life Path number. Then my daughters’. Then my ex. Then other people in my life. I was absolutely floored at the accuracy of the information.
From that moment, I was hooked.
I devoured this ancient art and science and became obsessed with how the numbers never lie.
And I love being the translator and the interpreter of the messages and vast depth of information numerology offers each and every one of us.
To create a personal numerology profile (much like a full astrology chart), the following is needed:
1. Full name as it appears on the birth certificate
2. Current first and last name (used socially)
3. Date of birth
With this information, an entire chart (often referred to as a blueprint or road map) can be determined, including the Life Path, Expression (sometimes called the Destiny number), Soul Urge, and Birth Day.
It also outlines cycles of time you’ll experience and what you’re learning and being challenged with during specific periods of time.
There’s much more – yet you get the idea.
HOW CAN NUMEROLOGY
ACTUALLY HELP ME?
Have you ever taken a personality test? Maybe you know your Meyers-Briggs type or have done your StrengthsFinder profile.
Numerology offers similar information, yet first of all, you don’t have to take a test!
I don’t know about you, but I can fluctuate on any given day how I might answer certain questions.
For instance: On a scale of 1 – 10, Are you confident? Well, today I’m riding high and feeling extremely confident. Tomorrow, well, maybe not-so-much.
With numerology, you don’t take a test. You just need your accurate name and DOB.
This information feels less surface-level and more soul-level. This is a supreme difference.
And the depth and breadth of information is astounding.
When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream,” said the alchemist, echoing the words of the old king.
The boy understood. Another person was there to help him toward his Personal Legend.
“So are you going to instruct me?”
“No. You already know all you need to know. I am only going to point you in the direction of your treasure. …”
What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up. It’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one ‘dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.’
