Game of numbers

According to astrologists, numerology is the study of symbolism of numbers. Ancient seers or psychic intellects manifested the spirit’s vibrations through numbers and used this system to study the energy associate with each number. The practice in Hinduism of naming children according to their moon signs or raashi was to make the name vibration correspond to the soul purposes. The birth date dictates the birth number and if the name number can also be made to correspond with it, you start on life’s journey with the best energies!

Everything in the universe is energy and each number is associated with a certain range of energy. Each alphabet of your child’s name has corresponding energy and the whole name has a band of related energies. The daily use of the name causes this energy field to be alive and active and associating with similar energies. A favourable name number will help your baby to take advantage of opportunities and recognise his or her talents and needs. By choosing a name with the desired positive qualities, you can give your child a great start in life.


Compute the numerological value of your child’s name

According to Pythagorean numerology, it’s this way:

1: A, J, S
2: B, K, T
3: C, L, U
4: D, M, V
5: E, N, W
6: F, O, X
7: G, P, Y
8: H, Q, Z
9: I, R


To know numerological value of a name, you need to take numeric value of each alphabet in the name and add them together. The two-digits of the resulting number are then added to get the final single digit number. Only exceptions are 11 and 22, which are not reduced to single digits as they are said to have special energies.
