Did you know that spirituality can involve quite a bit of math? Examine your life number, love number, repeating number strings, what they mean, and how they apply to your spirituality. Learn here about how you can do a few simple calculations to determine what your spiritual numbers are.

## Love Number

To find your love number, add up all of the digits of your birthdate (month, day, and year). Reduce the sum from double numbers by adding them until you are left with a single digit. That single digit is your love number.

For example, if your birthdate is April 1, 1971, you would find your love number by adding:

4+1+1+9+7+1 = 23

2+3 = 5

The number five would be your love number for this birthdate.

Now, what does your love number mean? Numbers are consistent and symbolic of associations and relationships. For example, the number seven is connected to the seven days of the week, linking the number seven to a structure of time. There were also seven planets during ancient Babylonian times, when the skies were being scanned for signs of fortune and omen. These associations with the number seven lend metaphysical, scientific, and scholarly meaning to the number. Numbers are associated with characteristics and meaning due to their historical connections.

## Personality (or Birth) Number

Your personality or birth number is determined in the same way as your love number, and the two are strongly connected. How you express love is related to your personality. Once you know your love number, you also have your birth number. A conversation with an online psychic can give you an in depth look at just how this number shapes your personality..

## Name Number

While birth numbers determine characteristics of a person's personality, name numbers are related to aspects of a person's development. Name numbers are determined by using a numerology chart to determine the numerical value of each letter of your name:

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

For instance, let's determine the name number for the name John Doe.

John Doe according to the chart above would read numerically as 1, 6, 8, 5, 4, 6, 5.

Add the numbers: 1+6+8+5+4+6+5 = 35

Add double numbers to get a single digit: 3+5=8.

The name number for John Doe is eight.

## Repeating Numbers

Numbers repeat and recur in life and may be something to pay attention to. Repetition of a number in numerology means the attributes of the number are being emphasized.

For instance, with the number 11, the attributes and vibrational frequencies of the number one, symbolic of purity and new beginnings, are being doubled. The number 11 carries with it a vibrational frequency of balance. Therefore, recurrences of the number 11 in life may be a sign to pay attention to balance in our lives.
