Ah the sweet breathe of love. Here in the states, many of us celebrate Valentine’s day as a day of sharing our affection. As 2017 is the global year of new beginnings, the “one“, (2+0+1+7=10/1), let’s take a look at attraction from a new perspective using the love and inspiration number based on numerology. As Rumi said, “What you seek is seeking you.”
What excites you and gives you the energy to thrive in life? In numerology, this is called your catalyst number or inspiration number.
Once you feed and nurture what inspires you, you can open up to a new insight into attraction with others. A mutual bond of connection unfolds as you share each other’s passion. This, of course is not just a romantic attraction, but with friends and family. The main goal, above all, is to love self.
“If you wished to be loved, love.” —Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Find Your Love and Inspiration Number
To find your inspiration number (often called your catalyst number), calculate the sum of your birth month and day. It is important to add each number separately using this formula:
If your birthday is 12/8, calculate your inspiration number like this: 1+2+8=11.
When the sum is an identical double digit (like 11), do not reduce. Double digits such as 11 and 22 are considered master numbers and have a very powerful vibration because they are double the value of the number. An “11/2” inspiration number in numerology is mastery in divine leadership and ideas that can change the world. If this is your catalyst number, you thrive on inspiring others. Read below to find out more how it affects your love life.
To begin: Calculate your birth month and birth day (reduce double digit unless the two numbers are the same).
Look at the characteristic of your inspiration number below to find what inspires you, according to numerology, and how people are attracted to you. Understanding your catalyst number and its shadow could also explains what might disappoint you in your life and relationships. Making a divine shift from the shadow and self-judgments into love and acceptance will transform your reality.
