If you want to know more about your destiny number and what your specific number is, keep reading to learn how to figure it out for yourself and then apply it to your own life.
What Is a Destiny Number?
In short, it is a number that is supposed to give you purpose for your life. Think of it as something that you can use as a beacon when you are not sure what to do next. For the most part, it can help you better understand your own personality traits and it can also help you decide what you want to do with your life because it might help you better determine where you fit in most effectively.
Determine Your Number
Determining your destiny number is actually very easy. First, write down the numbers 1 through 9 and then write a letter of the alphabet underneath each number, beginning with the letter A underneath the number 1. Write the numbers 1 through 9 again and continue writing the alphabet underneath it. When you are finished, you will have 3 rows of numbers and the letter Z will be underneath the number 8 in the third row. Now, take the letters of your name and add them together. Do your first name, then your middle name and finally, your last name. For each name, take your original total and then break it down by replacing an addition sign in between each number. This will give you your number for that name. After you have a single number for each name, add them together. This is your destiny number.
For example, if your name is Linda, you will find the numbers that correspond to each letter in that name. In this case, the numbers are 3 for the letter L, 9 for the letter I, 5 for the letter N, 4 for the letter D and 1 for the letter A. This gives you a total of 22. Now break those numbers apart by writing it as 2 + 2. Your total number for that particular name is 4. You will do the same thing for your middle name and your last name and then add all three numbers together.
Personality and Numbers
Once you have your destiny number, you might begin to better understand those personality traits and characteristics that have seemed quite mysterious to you in the past. It also might give you some special insight into your natural talents that you could be using to help others or even put yourself in a more secure financial position.
