A woman stares at numbers on a board next to her goals on post it notes. She is trying to use numerology to plan her future.

The system of numerology is similar to astrology but instead helps reveal the patterns that exist in our life using numbers. There is a wealth of inner wisdom that can be unlocked just by learning to both recognize and understand the numerology of our lives.

Your date of birth and corresponding life path number reveals your innate strengths and weaknesses and can be used for both self-improvements and for aligning yourself with the life you were destined to live. When it comes to setting goals, numerology helps us hear what is already in our hearts. Often the noise of our environments can drown out what is in our soul. This type of simple soul mapping can help you see that the little voice in your heart is actually coming from somewhere.

Before you look up your life path number, take a moment, and write down any goals you have right now, big or small. They don’t just have to be for work! What is important to you? Go ahead and have a moment of stillness and write it down.

Find your life path number with our life path number calculator and we will show you how to use it to help you set your goals.

How to Use Your Life Path Number to Define a Clear Goal

Most schools don’t offer classes in numerology, so most of us aren’t raised with the tools that allow us to tap into our inner wisdom. Tapping into what is in your heart can feel a bit difficult at first, and that can make setting a goal hard. Getting specific with your goal could seem next to impossible.

However, with the help of numerology and your life path number, it’s much easier. When you read the description of your life path number, write down the careers that the description brings to mind or the things that a person with this life path would probably enjoy and excel in (it doesn’t have to just be about work).

Now compare the list of things you originally wrote down with what you just wrote down and find the commonalities. See if it sparks new ideas.

For example, if you originally wrote down that you feel called to do more art and your life path number mentioned that you’re great working with your hands, perhaps that would spark an idea about the type of art you could decide to make. Maybe you want to travel overseas, but your life path number indicates that you thrive on order, structure, and having a plan.

In that case, now you know that it might be best for you to call a travel agent to help you nail down the details of your trip so you know how to use your time best and where you’re staying.

Your Life Path Number Helps You Focus On Your Strengths

Each life path number will indicate certain strengths and weaknesses, but you do not need to worry about or give up on goals that don’t seem to mesh well with your number at first. Use your life path number to own and improve upon your strengths and use them to your advantage.

At the same time, really look at the things your life path number indicates you struggle with. How can the things you are good at help you work towards improving the things that challenge you?

Focusing on your strengths will help you understand and activate your personal power and help stimulate ideas of specific goals that you actually truly want to pursue regardless of how confident you’ve been about doing what is in your heart in the past. It’s never too late to decide to follow that inner voice.

Numerology allows you to see that you knew all along; it’s going to help you find that courage to just go for it. If you are passionate about something, you’ll be much better at it anyway because you’ll feel excited to be there and people will enjoy your company.

Concluding Thoughts…

If you’re still having trouble coming up with a specific goal, do something to free up your anxiety like walk around the block, play inspiring music, or call someone who always supports your ideas and has positive energy. It can be helpful to talk through your goals with a spiritual counsellor if you feel like you’re really close to getting a clear picture but are struggling to make that final connection in your mind about what it looks like. Don’t feel like you have to do it alone. Perhaps consult the Tarot for more creative inspiration. We have free online Tarot readings that can help you access your intuition.

Finally, if the clarity doesn’t come right away, keep spending time meditating on your strengths that are revealed in your life path number and listening to your heart. The more you listen to your heart and read about your life path number, the less fear you will have and the more truth you’ll be able to perceive.

You don’t have to force your goal to come to you either. Trust that when you’re ready, you purpose will be revealed - especially if you keep being open to finding it. I know that I wouldn’t have been ready to reach some of the goals I set for myself in the past without getting some life experience first, so surrender and trust that you will be guided where you need to go and keep your attitude of gratitude on, no matter what.
