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:

Being late
Telling lies (even little white ones to spare people’s feelings)
Getting angry
Over eating
Over drinking
Being depressed
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.

The ABC's of Your 123's ~H is for Heart's Desire~

What is your Numerology Hearts Desire jpeg.JPG

The ABC’s of your 123’s
H is for Heart’s Desire
Using Name Numerology to Discover Your Heart’s Desire

We will learn how to calculate your Hearts Desire and you will get a brief interpretation of your own heart’s desire.  We need to understand this article coming into your hands means you are ready for this information. Know that when the student is ready the teacher arrives.

To make room for your Heart’s Desire it would be a good idea to consider letting go of somethings.

Here are some ideas:  
Let go of  sarcasm and say what you mean.
Let go of  one thing that is not good for your body.
Let go of using angry words at pets or children.
Let go of being in a hurry.
Let go of violent news, movies, games or hobbies.

How do we let go of some of this stuff?

Okay, now it is time to get positive, some of that stuff I listed just goes away without much effort just by:

being mindful

setting intentions

day dreaming

I believe very much in the law of attraction. You know ‘birds of a feather’. If you want to create more love, peace and harmony, it needs to expand off you. This is a potent time for such attraction as the year 2018 is about illuminating. A light will be shown on areas of your life you will need to attend to. Taking a few moments to explore your heart’s desire will go a long way to set the tone.

If you already know what type of things you desire, take a few moment, right now to write them down. What does the world look like to you? What does your employment feel like? How do you enjoy your time? If you would like some help or would like to expand on your thoughts…THINK BIG, like beyond your wildest dreams. This is where it helps to look at your numerology, to help you think big. Your Hearts Desire number more specifically, also known as the Soul’s Urge or Motivation number describes how you make decisions and the way you act.


To find your Heart’s Desire, add all the vowels in your full name. (This is numerology, the concept that numbers have meaning.) It is fun to see the different energy that is created when you do your birth name and a name change. For instance, my Heart’s Desire went from an 8 energy to an 11 energy with Gunberg as my last name. I didn’t know this at the time but, I am glad I made the name change. “Visionary who wants to be surrounded by like people” which is the 11 energy and my new heart’s desire.

Here is the conversion chart:

Now that you have your Hearts Desire number look below for the energy of the number. If you have my book “Say Yes to Who You Are to Create Fitness” the word list for each number starts on page 8 (Amazon eBook for only $3.99, click here). You can also schedule a reading with me.

                                 HEART’S DESIRE NUMEROLOGY

1 wants to be a leader and is ambitious

2 craves love and understanding, prefers to be in partnerships

3 loves an audience, many friends and to be surrounded by beauty

4 needs structure, order and rules, wants to work to help others

5 must have variety, personal freedom, and new opportunities

6 desires to create harmony and family, to right all wrongs

7 wants to dream and meditate, want to avoid: noise, menial work, physical discomfort & confusion

8 desires big business, getting things done

9 requires knowledge, wants to teach, counsel and serve humanity

May you make room for your Heart’s Desire and allow it space to grow.

Love and Light,


The ABC's of Your 123's ~E is for Expression~

E is for Expression
Important numerology for predicting personalities
Using your Name to say yes to who you are!

There are over 30 numbers that can be calculated from your date of birth and your names (first, middle, last, madden, and married). I have been excited about this concept ever since I learned that numbers have energy that can be explained by Numerology. Numerology translates the meaning, or energy, of numbers. 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 and partnerships. You also know: 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.

My preference is to focus on just four of these numbers, to look for where they are repeated in your chart and how they relate to your health and wellness. Here are some examples of the 30 plus numbers we can generate from two of my favorite numerologists:

  • Dan Millman
    All four digits of the Life Path relate to:
    Life Purpose
    Talents, Work, Finance
    Relationship/Composite numbers

Millman delivers all these with clarity and depth with his 446-page dynamo, “Discover the Life You Were Born to Live”

  • Michael Brill
    Over 14 numbers in your numbers in your birthday:
    Achievement Number
    Karmic Number
    Minor and Major Challenge Number
    Daisy Chains

My copy of Brills book “Numerology for Healing”, is so worn it is falling apart! It is an excellent numerology resource for general numerology and more specifically; ‘Your personal numerology as the key to a healthier life.’

Whew! That’s a lot of numbers! Most people look at Numerology as a way of telling the future, which is somewhat true but, in the case of the number we are looking for, the Expression number, it gives us an idea about the characteristics (attributes) of a person.

By using the name you were given at birth we can “predict” how you will act because the Expression Number describes how you interact with other people, how you reveal yourself to others and your talents. 

Note that the term ‘Destiny number’ can also be used interchangeably with Expression Number. To confuse you further, the Destiny number is also called the Life Path Number: Throughout my writings, I refer to the Life Path number as your Health and Wellness Path number, which is calculated by adding all the numbers of your date of birth until you get a single digit. To be clear, the Life Path number is the ‘ruling force that describes what you must do in order to operate harmoniously with your environment and get the most out of your life.

The Expression number is calculated by adding up all the letters in your name. Even more can be deemed by just your first name, (see sample below) by your middle name which is your emotional self and your last name, which represents the relationship with your family. The sum of the vowels and sum of the consonants have meaning too.

~Adding every letter of your full name at birth is how we get the Expression Number~

Here is the chart to change each letter of your birth name to a number:
Find the value for each letter then add the numbers together until we get a single digit. My first name has the number value of 6.  This means on my best day I am: intuitive, harmonious, and effective. Here is how we calculate the name Tricia:

T=2    R=9   I=9   C=3    I=9    A=1      2 + 9 + 9 + 3 + 9 + 1 = 33   3 + 3 =6

 The name Tricia equals a master number 33,
for this application I am simplifying it.
This might make some numerologist cringe,
but I find it helpful in the early learning stages.

Sensitive, Balanced, Caring, Cooperative

3(Letters C, L and U)

How can we use the Expression number?

It’s a great short cut in getting to know someone. If you get to interview people for a living, you know how helpful it is to get a feel of someone’s personality before you hire them and you want to know them in the shortest amount of time possible. This short cut will be golden for you. If you don’t have a numerology app this will take a few minutes to calculate and well worth your efforts. (Heck, send me a list of names and for a small fee I can do it for you!) Using the Expression number in dating would be very helpful as well. Understand that a person could just as well be working the opposite side of the characteristic given. Also, understand that these attributes are their true nature.


How is the Expression number helpful for your own
self-actualization or spirituality?

  ~E~ has the energy    of 5

Freedom &  Expansion

The Expression Number will illuminate the depth at which you are being true to yourself. How do you act in the presence of others? How much does this change depending on who is near you? Yes, we change a bit with each hat we wear; employee, parent, friend and sibling but, at the core- do you present yourself the same? Are you integral (9 energy) at work but blow off your friends and family, maybe it’s the other way around. Do you lie to your boss (7 energy) but you are totally translucent with friends?  Do you spend much time getting yourself to look just right (6 energy) but your home, car and office is a disorganized mess?

Look at the characteristics listed. How do you feel about the characteristic listed for you? Can you relate to them? Are they foreign to you? These are all questions you can ask yourself.

Take a few moments now to meditate on your list of attributes.

May you find these truths to be yours, so you can #sayyestowhoyouare and live the life you want!
