The most crucial number in your Numerology chart is your Life Path number, which is based on the date of your birth. Your Life Path number provides a glimpse of the opportunities, challenges and lessons you will encounter during this lifetime.
How to find your Life Path number
The Life Path is the sum of the birth date. This number represents who you are at birth and your traits that you will carry with you through life. The most important number that can transform affect your life is your Life Path number. The Life Path describes the nature of this journey through life.
The Life Path number is derived from the date of birth. First, add the Month, day, and year together to arrive at a sum total. After this, reduce this four digit number to a single digit.
Example: If a person was born on October 15, 1986 (10-15-1986*), add the month 10 to the day 15 plus the year 1972 arriving at a total of 2011. Then add the digits in 2011 arriving at the Life Path number 4.
There are various other methods for calculating your Life Path number, but all of that will arrive at the same single-digit result, yet the method used here is the only one that is correct. The other methods adopt the wrong way of calculations by randomly adding up the numbers that appear in the birth date, which can result in a Master number where you miss a Master number that should have actually been included.
This method is the only correct way because it is the only one that acknowledges the Life Path as a cycle, that runs from birth to death and interacts with the other numerological cycles of your life.
Your Period cycles are three long-term cycles that each cover about one-third of your life. The First Period cycle is based on the reduced number of your month of birth, the Second Period is derived from your reduced day of birth and the Third Period is derived from your reduced year of birth. Therefore, your all Life Path number is not a matter of simply adding up the numbers that appear on your birth date, but is actually derived from the numbers that make up your three Period cycles.
