I dutifully went to the bookstore where I would find numerology texts, and upon entering, I told the owner what was asked of me. She happened to be a person who believed that a bookstore was not a library, and wanted customers to come in, get what they needed, and leave. In other words, no sitting and browsing! She looked at me strangely for a moment after my pronouncement and then walked me over to a section and brought over a stool. She told me to take as long as I needed to go through the books, and I looked at the ones she recommended and others, choosing several of them reluctantly.
When I got home, I started reading, often irritated, and was deeply skeptical about the whole thing. However, I’d learned to pay attention and follow the guidance my inner promptings dictated because they had always been right. So, still in resistance mode, I did the rudiments of the chart as outlined in one of the books that I thought had some merit, and I found something very interesting. The number 9 often deals with the father figure and a deep connection between the father and child, either in support, or as a loss in some way. The main number of importance in my chart was 9. The first portion of my life was 9. Going through the years, when I was 9, all the numbers were also 9. I was shocked! When I was 9 years old, my father, the love of my life, died. Suddenly I had to look at this as more than mere coincidence and started to do the charts for all my family members, noting very interesting confirmation of their journey and characteristics.
When my studying was completed and I’d done some experimental charts, I offered a philosophical group who met in my home to be guinea pigs, and as I did each of their readings, they would tell me that I MUST do this professionally…that I really had something. Still the skeptic, in spite of the responses I got, I made a statement to the universe. “Well, if you want me to do this for a larger audience, you will have to bring them to me because I am NOT going to advertise!” And they did!
My clientele has involved famous people, companies, CEO’s and politicians – movers and shakers as well as regular people. I ended up being on radio, TV, taught classes in the subject, lectured by invitation, and wrote a booklet called Where You Live is What You Learn: How the Number of Your Residence Affects Your Life. I became a columnist on several online magazines, and through the years, was fortunate enough to meet wonderful people and did something that helped others to open to their greater potential.
I do not do readings anymore, but I did do Yearly Forecasts for people based on their birthday. What cost clients over $100 a session was now compacted in a CD, and now MP3. I was delighted to be able to give something back at a very reasonable price, and have recently started a column in The Inner Voice Magazine about the Yearly Forecast and monthly influences.
I learned that numerology was NOT a low art. In fact, what I found was a very deep and symbolic study that reflected the journey of a soul and provided a divine blueprint for one’s life. I have learned through the years that humility is important. It’s not up to us to argue with the universe when we are told to do something. When we follow guidance, we generally find that what we are being asked to do will lead us to a greater awareness and opportunity to serve others and in so doing, to enrich ourselves.
Thank you for stopping here. I hope you will find value within these pages!
I have been a searcher and pioneer most of my life. When I was given the assignment from my inner guidance to study numerology, I was insulted. “Lowest of the low arts!” I complained. My opinion of what I should be did not match becoming a fortune teller and my past interests had lifted me to a position of authority and leadership along “respectable” lines, so this was quite a shock to my system.
