Did you know that your name can hold the key to understanding more about yourself? You might already have calculated our Life Path Number, (if you haven′t, you can learn how to do that here.) Numerology can also the key to your self-expression.
Your name can show how you portray yourself to the world. Although this isn′t just a matter of how others see you, it also reflects the goals in your life, and what you set out to achieve.Your expression number reveals your innate potential.
That′s why it is sometimes called the ‘destiny number.′ It can provide clues to your talents and skills, as well as your challenges. A careful analysis of your name can point you toward your career, personal goals, and any other aspirations you may have.
Your expression number is based on your full name at birth. Don′t add any prefixes or suffixes that you might use (such as Dr., Sr., Jr., Rev., for example). If you have more than one middle name, use all of them in your analysis. Calculating your expression number isn′t hard, but it does take a bit of math.
You′ll need to write out your name in its entirety, assigning a number to each letter of the alphabet. Add the numbers of your first name together to get a single digit. Do the same for your middle name (if you have more than one middle name, then do it for each name). Finally, repeat the process for your last name.
The only exceptions here will be if one of your names adds up to a master number of 11 or 22. In that instance, do not reduce this to a single digit. 11 and 22 are considered to be master numbers.
