In order to understand something of this mystical system of numbers and letters, which some believe to have a bearing on their lives both on earth and after their deaths, we need to go back in time to take a look at its origins. Many of the ancient cultures that fascinate us even today, such as the Babylonian, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek and Indian, have been found to have some form of numerology in their belief systems; and thus you can use a numerology calculator to help understand the principles of these great belief systems.
Numerology has been around for millennia, certainly for many hundreds of years before the Christian era, and probably for as long as man has used numerical and alphabetical symbols to leave behind a history of his time on planet Earth.
It is impossible to pinpoint the time period to when and how numerology originated as it is as complex as solving the Rubic’s cube even though it is pretty different today in the modern era as today is the age of angel number 333 or devil number 666 that decides your fate alongside the positioning of the stars during the time of birth although its rich history continues to inspire modern day astronomers in a big way.
The two main forms of calculation used in numerology nowadays are those of the Chaldan and Pythagorean systems.
In the Chaldean system of numerology, it is believed that every letter vibrates to its own degree, as does every single thing that constitutes our universe. Each letter is therefore given a number that corresponds to the value of its specific vibration. The Chaldean system began in ancient Babylon and uses two other major belief systems in its make-up – that of the Hebrew system of Kabala, and that of the Indian method, known as the Vedic system.
The Pythagorean system, on the other hand, is completely different, in that all the numerical values given to the letters were allotted according to a mathematical formulation devised by the famous mathematician Pythagoras, who was born on the Greek Island of Samos in 580 BC.
Even though we are now in the 21st century, the practice of numerology still has people around the world divided down the middle – there are those who believe the symbolism of numbers has a definite bearing on their lives, and then there are those in the other camp who think that this belief system is nothing more than some form of astrological mumbo-jumbo – and are therefore sceptical about the effect it has, or may have, on their everyday lives.
Numerology involves adding up the component numbers of a person’s birth date and the numbers assigned to the letters relating to their name. It is estimated that 50% of the result produced by adding all these numbers together is said to come from the birth date, while the other 50% comes from the numerical version of the letters in their name. All of these factors are used by numerologists to produce a human map of that person which is believed to relate to their personality, their strengths and weaknesses, their emotions and their innermost thoughts.
The information gleaned by using a numerology calculator can also be used by a numerologist as a tool in deciphering and deriving the four (and most major) core elements as well as certain modifiers, in order to provide the person with a complete and accurate character analysis.
