Numerology uncovers the true meaning behind words

The language of numbers is universal -- not only is it rooted in mathematics and science, but it has a greater spiritual meaning as well. In this way, the power of numbers transcends spoken language.

Numbers are very objective -- their immediate meaning is clear, and they are the language of science. To most people, there isn't any particular emotional meaning attached to numbers. Numbers are also perfect for communicating dense or abstract ideas.

But numbers are also like highly scientific tools that get to the essence of the words and names we use. Even though it's obvious to say that words have meaning, they truly do -- something even deeper than we might first catch. Each word and name has an almost subliminal feeling and soul. Numerology can get to the heart of this. To see just how Numerology reveals the deeper meaning of words, we'll look at some important (and basic) names -- for emotions, for everyday objects and for creatures.


The Expression number of "love" is 9, the humanitarian sign that shows love's universal nature. Qualities associated with the number 9 include generosity and compassion -- this is a number that encourages personal sacrifice for the sake of others. 9 is healing, and this unconditional number also encourages gentle teaching.

The Heart's Desire number of the word "love" is 11 -- in this sense, 11 is sensitive and has a great sense of intuition. 11 seeks harmony and spiritual connection with a higher power. Numerology experts often call 11 "the Channel" or "the Illuminator." With a Personality number of 7, "love" shows a need for self-knowledge and great sensitivity. 7 also shows that "love" is naturally wise.


Love's opposite, "hate," has a Karmic Debt number as its Expression number (16/7). This means that it attracts painful lessons and is inherently destructive. This Karmic Debt number shows that this word and all associated with it is isolated, an outcast. That's because 16/7 is a frigid number that is very intellectual and also extremely unfeeling. This number shows that "hate" has no patience for emotional matters.

The Heart's Desire number of "hate" is 6, showing that it has a powerful emotional impact on those around it. Every number has a light and dark side, and the dark side of 6 is an overwhelming need for control. After all, the concept of hate is that it fixates and tries to stamp out the object of its obsession. With a Personality number of 1, "hate" embodies the dark sides of 1 by being insensitive and aggressive, selfish and unwilling to compromise. This is why "hate" is so often associated with isolation. Simply put, 1 keeps this word from seeing beyond the negativity and having any kind of tolerance.


Light and dark

How do these two words compare, especially after comparing "love" and "hate?" With "light," the Core numbers are very similar to those of "love" -- "light" has an Expression number of 11, a Heart's Desire number of 9 and a Personality number of 2. What "light" and "love" have in common are the 11 qualities of understanding, wisdom and enlightenment. 11 illuminates whatever it comes into contact with. The Heart's Desire number of 9 shows that these words are deeply committed to solving (or brightening) the biggest of problems. And "light"'s Personality number of 2 shows that it is a gentle word.

Meanwhile, "dark" has an Expression number of 16/7, a Heart's Desire number of 1 and a Personality number of 6. The only way "dark" is different from "hate" is that the Heart's Desire and Personality numbers switch places. Notice that both words have the same Core numbers.

Dog and Cat

Here are two words that are associated with loyalty, companionship and domestication. But these two creatures have very different natures and dispositions, and this is reflected in their respective numbers. "Dog" has an Expression number of 8, which hints at a protective ability. With a Heart's Desire number of 6, "dog" has a need for a stable, comfortable home, and craves attention. With a Personality number of 11, the dog has a strong emotional core and is in tune with the ups and downs of its owner's moods.

Meanwhile, "cat" has an Expression number of 6, which strongly points to a homebody nature driving it. But with a Heart's Desire number of 1, there is a strong and stubborn streak that runs through this well-loved, domesticated animal. Finally, with a Personality number of 5, the need for freedom is strong in this one. With all of these numbers, the word "cat" shows a being that cannot be controlled (which any cat owner on earth would tend to agree with).

With both "dog" and "cat" sporting 6 as their Core numbers, there is a lot both of these words -- and species -- have in common. But with a Heart's Desire number of 6, the dog is clearly more in need of emotional attention. Meanwhile, the cat is less obedient.

As you can tell, Numerology is extremely accurate. Not only is it insightful about a word or name's characteristics, it can predict future events and tendencies. There is a lot of wisdom that we all sense -- without acknowledging -- that Numerology taps into. Simply put, Numerology is a sense of universal subconscious. Luckily, it's also very accessible!
