Soul Numerology by Julie Gale is yet another fun pastime if you’re the kind who likes finding out everything about yourself and others, even if it’s a little… out there. And by “out there” I mean… controversial.
First things first: My copy was published in 1998 in London. Maybe someone brought it to Canada and then tossed it in the bin at Value Village, my fave thrift store. I picked it up a few years ago.
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room —> Numerology. Gale tells us in the Introduction that people often say, “I wish I could find out what my Soul Path is. I’d like to know what my life lessons are, and if I have any of whatever this thing is called ‘Karma.'”
Prepositions at the end of sentences and confusing sentence structure aside, those are good questions.
But why numerology?
I could say that since mediumship, channeling, card/ aura/ retina reading, palmistry, graphology, astrology, psychology, mysticism, and religion were taken, someone came up with the bright idea of numerology. Who knows? Also, I make me laugh.
But seriously, numerology might have come first. I don’t know or care. If you do, please feel free to check out some neat links I found. I’ll wait.
Added bonus: Just for super-fun, here’s a link to a YouTube guy who thinks numerology is a complete scam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QA8Q7IG66I
Here’s the thing…
People like me are ALWAYS searching for meaning. And frankly, if you’re looking… you’ll always find it. ‘Nuff said.
As a basic overview regarding this book (because not all numerologist use the same numbers) important numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22 and here are the basic abbreviated meanings:
- Material Success
And the two special numbers:
22. Potential Power
How you get to the numbers and the deeper meanings are what this book is really about. <<< I have a lot of nerve talking about the preposition above! Hrmph!!!!!
Included in this book are the directions, along with charts and grids for figuring out birth numbers, the numbers of our names (birth and otherwise), vowel and consonant numbers, birthday numbers, early development and maturity numbers, and personal year numbers.
There are also blank and sample workout charts and numerology grids for some famous folks, and comparisons of compatibility for partners and friends.
Finally, there is an additional chapter on Karma and numerology that takes a deep dive into Karmic Debt Charts. I will admit that this section was complicated and mathy. It is interesting and important in the scope of the book – I mean, if you’re gonna do part of it, you might as well do ALL of it. Know what I mean? Of course, you’ll have to believe in reincarnation because that’s what Karma is all about. Psst: Google says: (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
You notice I didn’t share my chart and that’s because I want you to go get the book if you want to find out more. 🙂
So, there you have it, folks. Just something fun for this hot Friday. Now, goeth out and enjoyeth your weekend!
