Numerology is the study of the occult meanings of numbers and their influence on human life. Some alleged psychics, claim that numerology helps them understand events such as the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
It all starts with your name and birth date. They are the data base from which a numerologist is able to describe you, sight unseen. Number values are assigned to the letters in your name. By adding these--with the numbers in your birth date--in a multitude of combinations, a numerologist establishes your key numbers. He then interprets the meaning of these key numbers, which results in a complete description of your personal characteristics.
Through numerology you can "see all the diverse parts of your personality and how they uniquely come together to make the person you are."
This will enable you to "make the most of your strengths in a way that wasn't possible before."
Just what do you think the numerical odds are either
(a) that a set of numbers associated with the letters of your name and your birth date will reveal who you are and what you should do with your life, or
(b) that someone in personnel has figured out how to read those numbers? I'd say the odds are about zero.
Nevertheless, numerology shouldn't be brushed off without a thorough examination of its underlying theory.
Some of the attractiveness of numerology and psychics comes from the desire to find somebody who will tell you that you are full of hidden strengths and powers, and who will reinforce your deepest needs and emotions.
