A person’s fate is written in his name and his date of birth. We generally keep names spontaneously at the time of birth of the child without making any calculation. However, it comes from nature or from the universal mind. A name consists in itself the complete character of the person, hobbies, interests in life, vocation and complete destiny from birth till death. There is a group of people who do not like to believe in destiny and they advocate “free will“. But in cases, we are compelled to think that perhaps there is predestination and each one of us is merely a puppet in the hands of some “Universal Intelligence“.
Pythagoras believed that at the exact moment of an individual’s birth the universe has a peculiar “vibration“ which affects his character and destiny in life. He assigned a particular number to each alphabet in a natural way and gave its salient features alongside. The meanings attached to the numbers have been modified through research by a series of workers till date, including my own studies in the last two decades. For the introduction we have the following:
Meanings of Numbers
As pointed out earlier the name of a person is his autobiography of life and events – past, present and future. Every number carries behind it the occult or spiritual forces embodied in it from ancient times. Each number has in it a peculiar electromagnetic power with which the character & events of life are subtly & decisively influenced. Having gained the numerological insight you can know how and why you or somebody behaved or is likely to behave at a certain time. According to Pythagoras, both quality & quantity are represented by the numbers 1 to 9. Each number has a positive effect that an individual is endowed with. There is a negative effect of numbers that prevails especially at the time of conflict between two or more numbers and the clash can be straightened out with proper understanding.
There are four categories into which the meanings have been
– Positive Effect: Personality, the positive side of nature.
– Opportunities and Vocation: Openings for personal career and
fields of business activities.
– Negative Effect = The other side of nature at the time of conflict.
– Personal Side = Behaviour and outcome in human relationships.
