If you’ve opened yourself up to guidance, you may have encountered the field of numerology. It’s something that, at first, confuses many people as it might not be obvious how the study of numbers and their meaning can bring about positive changes in your life. The study of numerology is a massive topic, and if we were to break down every aspect of it in this article, we’d end up with something akin to several novels all squished together. For today, we’ll take a look at the role numerology can play in improving your health.
Before we begin, it is essential to note that no one knows your body and your mind as well as you do when it comes to your health. Symptoms and feelings are all messages sent to you by your body. Never ignore the things your body is telling you. Always listen to your instincts and reach out to a healthcare professional if you feel like something isn’t ideal. Even subtle things like being unusually tired or more impatient than usual can be used to understand better what your body and mind need to maintain optimal health.
The Concept of ‘As Above, So Below’
To understand how numerology can be used to improve your health and wellbeing, you need first to take a step back and understand how interconnected things are. The concept of ‘as above, so below’ is really good at helping with this.
This is the idea that everything in existence is connected and reflecting each other, that you can change something in one area, and it will have an effect in another. You may have heard that tidying your room can improve your mental state. Studies have shown that being in a clean environment helps your mind and emotions feel cleaner as well, which can help you focus and reduce stress. When it comes to your internal and external world, many connections like this can be made.
We know that traumas can manifest as injuries or illnesses, meaning that addressing something you’re struggling with can sometimes lessen the symptoms or health problems you’re having. Likewise, healing something physical can help release some buried emotional sufferings.
If You Want to Change the World, Start With the Person in the Mirror
Another way to look at this is by examining the adage: “if you want to change the world, start with the person in the mirror.” Sometimes people say: “be the change you want to see in the world.” If you’re frustrated with, let’s say, the political sphere in your country, you might actually be frustrated with the mental state of those in your community or culture. Perhaps people’s political actions are fuelled by fear, and interacting with people in a way that makes them feel safe can help with this.
Maybe you’re frustrated that your partner isn’t listening so well, and you discover that listening better to them when they speak can help. There are thousands upon thousands of examples of this reflective quality of our existence. If you start playing around with it, you might have some astonishing results.
Numerology and Health
These reflections apply to the connections between your numbers and your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. Numerology is the belief that using the numbers of our date of birth, we can learn a lot about why we’ve come to Earth and what this means for our health. Experts at Straight Forward Guidance suggest beginning to understand this relationship by calculating your life path number. Each path is associated with different parts of the body and implies different healing methods will be more effective.
If, for example, you’ve come here to connect and bond with people, group therapy, and group exercise classes might suit your health needs. If you’ve come here to lead and bring about change, you might need to be devoting more time to stress management and sleep as you’re prone to pushing yourself past your limits.
An Example: Life Path Three
Here’s a breakdown of one path as an example. If you’re a life path 3, your path is associated with joints, hips, and thighs. These people are susceptible to joint pains, gastritis, throat issues, coughs, and skin diseases. This might mean you need to pay extra attention to anti-inflammatory foods to keep your joints healthy. You might need to monitor the humidity of your home to keep your throat healthy. Life path three is also associated with creative needs meaning, for emotional wellbeing, you should find a creative outlet in your day-to-day life.
Of course, this is just one of the eleven different life paths. Beyond this, there are ways to calculate numbers more specific to your relationships, disposition, and many other aspects of your being. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, there are countless resources on numerology online and many experts who are happy to help.
