The ABC’s of Your 123’s
I is for Inner Self
Using Numerology to Tune Into Yourself
There are over 30 numbers that can be calculated from your date of birth and your names (first, middle, last, madden, and married). Numerology translates the meaning, or energy, of these numbers. This translation has helped me say ‘yes’ to who I am and help others do the same.
You know some of these number meanings already. The one, for instance, is about leadership and being first. The two, as in ‘it takes two to tango’, is about balance. Yin and yang, the perfect symbol of the number two’s energy. The 8 is the infinity sign standing up which means manifestation and abundance.
So far, we have discussed two other numbers derived from your name: the Expression Number and the Heart’s Desire number. Through understanding ourselves better we will find more joy. This is of course, is so that we can say YES to who we are more often. Abraham Hicks and Eckart Tolle, two of the many teachers that speak of this, teach us that saying yes to the present moment brings us peace.
If you are not saying yes to the moment, you are actually resisting it. This causes us unnecessary stress. So, how are we resisting, you might wonder. Here is a short list, as there are many others:
Telling lies (even little white ones to spare people’s feelings)
Putting ourselves last
How many times a day do you reset who you really are? Don’t judge, just ask yourself. This awareness is a good place to start. Notice when you do any of the above. For a more positive approach and any time you want to raise your spirits (vibration) find out something nice about yourself through Numerology. Before you know it, you’ll being accepting more moments every day, creating peace, grace and JOY.
Let’s take a look at your Inner Self number so you can use this to get to the yummy bits that are YOU. The Inner Self number is derived from your name numerology. It is the sum of all the consonants and describes your secret dreams. It is how you picture yourself and often the first impression someone gets of you.
I went from a 6 to a 4 when I got married. No, not my jean size, my Inner Self number. Swapping the last name Servi for Gunberg gave me a dash more practicality (energy of the 4) to tap into. The math for my name at birth adds to a 6, the Inner Self numerology on Tricia Elizabeth Gunberg adds to a 4. The 4, as the Inner Self is described as; “A pillar of society upon which who all could depend.”
Yes, please! This is what I aspire to. My true Inner Self. The ‘self’ I kept hidden for a long time. The name changed helped me, mostly because I became aware.
The concept of changing your name specifically to create an outcome is a common use for numerology. According to Numerologist Norman Shine, “Many divorces might have been avoided by the wife keeping her maiden name.” He does go onto say that it is dangerous to generalize as some women ‘prefer the new awareness that comes with a name change and stay married for life...’ This is a good point, regardless of what the numerology says, if you do not have a solid sense of who you are before you are married, you will not have the ‘new awareness’ of the change your new name has created.
I understand this; the effect of a name change is equivalent to the amount of work you put into it.
Hans Decoz defines your Inner Self number: “Serves as a censoring device, both in terms of what you send out, as well as what you allow to approach. It discriminates in the kinds of people and information you let enter your heart and mind.”
How will you use this to tune into yourself?
Make it fun! If I am overwhelmed by being ‘a pillar of society upon who all depend’, then I immediately start resisting who I am. This statement would not have resonated with me ten years ago, seven years ago it would have made me anxious. Today, I consider who might be relying on me. Do clients rely on me to give them clear readings and empowering/inspiring posts? They do, but since my work is fun for me and flows from me, the responsibility does not make me anxious. Do I get nervous when I do my posts or submit my work? Yep, that is how I know I’m on the right track.
Similar to your Heart’s Desire, knowing your Inner Self number allows you to look at yourself in different light. Use this chart to calculate your Inner Self number.
Add all the consonants of your name to get your Inner Self number. Reduce it to a single digit unless it adds to an 11 or 22.
