DIY Numerology Baby Name Calculator - Numerology Chart- Numerology and Names
First, before I (Anna- Gold Coast Doula) tell you what numerology is, I want to say thank you to my very first spiritual teacher Debbie Wentworth from Darwin Northern Territory Australia. You came to me with clear messages back in 2008, without those, I’d not be where I am today in my spiritual journey. Over the course of 3 months, you became medium for me and my team and their noisy antics pushing you along, not leaving you alone. When you came to me as a teacher; I as a student was ready! I honor you now and always.
Why did I Learn Numerology?
Have you ever watched the movie sliding doors? It’s an all-time favorite of mine. It’s a movie where a lady played by Gwyneth Paltrow misses a train and her whole life changes. It explores the opposite side of events that manifested with her meeting the train on time. As the viewer way back in 1998; I was Seeing this series of her life’s events change depending on simple choices made. The reason I love this movie is it reminds me of me. I’d spend those long hours of my late teens in daydreams of the many what if’s in my life. From time to time as id analyze the events of my childhood I’d really unpack those what if’s. Just like in that movie where Gwyneth Paltrow makes one choice over another; I would think what if. My questioning went on and on for years, and it’s never stopped…. This deep questioning I have of everything led me to numerology.
If your one who has not had to delve in deep, I get it; so no judgment here. Delving into the knowledge within and without is scary real. But go easy on yourself. Numerology is but one tool available for deep self-discovery.
What Is Numerology?
Numerology is a study of the individual and total of all the numbers in your name and date of birth. In understanding the patterns of your numerology, you can reveal your deepest hidden strengths; it can help guide you into exploring your challenges and seeing the lessons that are there for you.
Numerology as a practice has a wide scope in your life. It can be used to determine the energy calling you to manifest from the date you were born. And can be used to decipher your life’s daily influences. From the date you first started that business. The gifts of the energy in your home address. The challenges you will learn to ride, from the birth date of your children.
I first became aware of the Pythagorean system of mathematics when I failed miserably at every attempt to master Geometry numbers as a small child at school. Not due to any lack of ability but more a consequence of my mother feeling it was her only option to move us from school to school, and state to state as frequently as every 6 months. If I cared enough one day, I’m sure I could master it; but, until that day I’ll stick with understanding Pythagoreans' divine triangle in a spiritual sense. Not many people know this, but Pythagorean systems were developed to understand more than logic. He was a part of an elite group who sort to interpret the meanings of seemingly unrelated events of a person’s existence and turn them into an equation worthy of universal energy flow and timing. You see Pythagorean was more than a logical left-brain academic inventor. Although, I'm sure that paid his bills nicely, or one would hope. He and his team enlisted a number value to every letter in our language. I don’t know how this is relevant seeing as we have multiple languages today in our society, and differences in expression over the past 10,000 odd years; but, I’m thinking if we are limited to the numbers presented to us currently at least it’s a start point. A bit like a flag indicating a location on a greater map yet to be explored by us. Or a flicker of candlelight into our soul’s purpose and a spark of strength into the driving force of our heart’s desires.
Naming The Baby And Numerology
All names are good names. Your own name and the one you have given your child. It is said that whatever unfolds in life has been written, sometimes an easy life is written and sometimes a cumbersome life is required. Know that you can’t outwit someone’s destiny. For it is written.
Numbers in your full chart relate to what the soul brings in to support it in its new experience during this present lifetime. No good intentions on the parent’s part to try and create a numerology hot name can ever consider the child’s destiny. You have all heard the clichés no doubt…. Only the toughest of steal is cooked in the hottest of fires. As painful as it may be you cannot spare someone from their destiny nor should you. For it has so much good in it for us as a collective. Our world desperately needs souls brave enough to make change. The lessons I’ve learnt from hardship have blown my mind.
That said love is all you need and what we all eventually come back to! It’s been proven to me time an time again. But it takes someone brave with fire of soul, with the grounding of earth, with the energy flow of the waters and the exuberant freshness of air; to truly commit to love. All that is a mother’s journey daily.
Without further delay here are the number values prescribed for working out the numerology in your name. As passed down from the elders to their elders for generations till it landed in my lap here today through the works of Debbie Wentworth, Ian White, Juno Jorddan, Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker.

Positive And Negative Expression Of The Numbers
In any moment we can choose to respond to situations and challenges in our lives from a place of love or not. when reading these traits of the numbers keep this in mind and don't worry or judge anyone, yourself included, too harshly as we are all having this human experience as a collective. Also while reading the meanings note that God/Goddess is used as are religious and biblical quotes/references. I'm not a religious person but prefer to keep an open mind. I do this to fully open my heart to the teachings of life.
The Number One

And the spirit of the God/Goddess moved upon the face of the waters.” Pythagoras affirmed-“that the mind of man or the intellect takes from God its absolute active nature.”
The science of numbers deals with the living force of the divine facilities in action in man and in the universe. Number one is the number of action. It has the knowledge of what is to be, followed by the courage, daring, will and intelligence to move where all is dark and void. It fears no obstacles-exploring, inventing and creating with dynamic force and energy-and sets the pattern and outline for others to follow. It becomes the leader and head of broad undertakings. In human affairs- without the number one there would be no beginnings.

“And God said, let there be light; And there was light; And God saw that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.” “The primordial light, vibrating breath and divine impulse, contains the essence of all souls, the spiritual type of all being.” -Pythagoras
The spiritual inheritance of the number ‘Two’ endows it with powers not equally shared by the other numbers. It is the ‘Light-Bearer’ from on high. It shall not grope in darkness. It has the ‘light’ from within itself. The love of peace is its strength; its gentleness, its sensitiveness, it’s insight into right and wrong, the gift of persuasion, it’s talent for unity, are its never-failing reward. It is endowered with the faculty of true awareness of the relationship between God and man.

“in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God or goddess. All things where made by him or her; and without him or her was not anything that was made.”
“And God said ‘Let there be-“
The number ‘Three’, the child of God, forever young, ever-renewing, touched with the fire of enthusiasm, is gifted with the magic power of the word, turning the impossible into the possible- bringing into being that which has never been before.
The number Three dreams visualizes in its mind's eye- speaks the word and it’s dreams come true. Touched by the heavenly fire, a child of the infinite father and mother, the number three is a “chosen one” and commands the gifts of the kingdom of heaven here on earth. Beauty rewards its efforts when it dears to speak its inner sight and feeling and responds to the ever-flowing exuberance which floods its being. Never truly practical it depends on the other numbers to put into form prophecy which lives in its imagination.

“And God said “let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after its kind, whose seed it is itself upon the earth; and so it was!”
The number Four holds the key to all arrangements and interpretations of forms, plans, dreams, ideas, and patterns from the material, mechanical, and mathematical to the artistic, esthetic, religious and spiritual levels of thought and feeling. It provides the foundation upon which all things stand to sustain life and entity.
“it is the number of rational exposition of principles and ideas. It explains arranges, constructs, builds, maintains, carries out and makes exact the systems and formulas which provide the matrix for lasting and tangible results.”
It turns raw material into particular form, shapes, and molds them into harmony with each other. It demonstrates the cosmic order of growth and attainment, and with a powerful and firm hand brings time and space down to earth. It arranges that which has been imagined and dreamed of and makes it concrete and applicable to human living.
Opportunity for a great team is having all these numbers working towards a common goal. Number one conceives ideas and presents them for form and use, number two draws the blueprints and gathers information, number three sees the beauty and envisions the possibilities of the plan and the number four finds the materials and builds the form into which the idea is shaped, molded and made concrete.

“And God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
With this command government began-the right of action-the development of resourcefulness- the wonder of being alive- the stimulation of choice. The number Five is life’s field of action. It represents experience. It is at all times the administrator.

“And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good, And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
Therefore, the rewards of creation are provided for and are at hand for the six. Divine inheritance is its blessing. Having been given the seeds of all life, it becomes the storehouse, the provider, and the caretaker of all mankind. The fruits of its labor give comfort, happiness, protection, abundance, and richness to all people. Harmony, usefulness, beauty, and the privilege of service should follow it all the days of its life.
The ‘Humanitarian’ establishes the place of the number six in all human and spiritual affairs. Its crowning glory is the good it has done for others. Intelligent, capable, and practical, yet it is a dreamer of dreams, living on a high planform which it senses and expresses the grandeur and beauty of life and living.

“And God Blessed the seventh day and sanctified it: because that in it he/She had rested from all his/her work which God created and made.”
The number Seven had been born to have the rewards of the number six but commanded to discover the inner knowledge of the laws of divine creation. It had already gained the abundance of its past labors. Now, calm, serene in meditation and contemplation, it looks out upon established facts and beholds in visions and dreams the realities of unseen power, thus becoming the possessor of the wisdom of the ages. Having the blessings of the most ‘High’, it may reach out for greater vistas of learning and discover that which has not before been perceived. Standing in the midst of material things. Not of a religious nature, it still makes holly that of mankind’s existence.

“And the lord/Lady said, if I find in Sodom fifty righteous people, within the city, I will spare all the place for their sakes.”
To bring the infinite and the finite together in a harmonious relationship is the purpose and divine inheritance of the number Eight.
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven.”
Armed with divine awareness, learned through many past lifetimes, the number Eight plunges into the depths of experience, touched by the knowledge of the great mysteries of being and the secrets of science, art and the occult, it presents to the people of earth the divine dream of creation.
The number Eight is a double number. It is the masculine and the feminine. The masculine- strong, demanding, active. The feminine-passive and capable of being molded. Together they express the celestial in material form. Separated, they bring sorrow and destruction – heaven and hell.
The number Eight represents authority and can guide and direct mankind- not as the humanitarian but as the arbitrator, controller, the judge who weighs and balances with wisdom and without prejudice. The number eight must not allow the seven days of creation to fail. It has charge of the expansion of the works of creation. It provides the other, the knowledge, the supervision and the stability to cement the dreams and visions of all the other numbers, that growth and progress may be even greater than before.
Its task is great, it has many burdens. As its righteousness remains true to divine command, it becomes the noble and greatly respected judge and is rewarded from on high. It is the Solomon of numbers.
“Judge not that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”
The Number Nine
Watchword: Forgiveness. An Introvert number.
Positive expression: Perfection; Compassion; Love; Ideality; Impressionability; Charitable ways, Brotherhood of mankind; Impressionality; Forgiveness; Leaders in Philanthropic endeavor; Artists, writers; Religionists; Having big opportunity in life; Capacity for living by divine standards; Money Attraction; Leaders in Art or good works; Dramatic talent.

Changeableness in love affairs; Possessiveness; Demanding approval and Appreciation; Moods and depression; Failure to use talents for good of world; Dissipation of higher forces; Carelessness in financial affairs; Seeking an easy time and approval; Wrong Habits; Wanting to be hale fellow.
The number Nine represents the beginning and the ending of all human experience.
It is the force of the outgoing number one,
the light and peace of the number two,
the imagination of the number three,
the form and order of the number four,
the life and progress of the number five,
the responsibility of the number six,
the intelligence and perfection of the number seven,
the judgment of the number eight,
the compassion and benevolence of the number Nine.
The number Nine represents mankind’s last earthly lesson:
“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
The number Nine is the heart and harmony of Gods plan: it is also the law and the principle of love that maintains, supports, and fulfils the promise of ‘Eternal Life’.
“Wherefor I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men; but blasphemy against the holy ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”
Many disappointments will color the experiences of the number Nine. However, awakened to the mystic, to the “Music of the spheres” and to the great Harmony of Being, it is finally redeemed out of all peoples, all religions, all creeds into the One Self which is in all and through all.
The life becomes a glorious experience to the number Nine. All who touch its life are warmed by the divine force of compassion radiating from its heart.
