History of Numerology
As mankind emerged from living a simple tribal life, numbers became increasingly important. Systems of all types were developed, from simple measurements that were used for everyday use to systems that were used for religious beliefs. These systems grew in complexity, taking on the understanding of a variety of factors. Many of these systems were developed by the Chaldeans, the Mayans, the Hindus, the Hebrews and the Chinese.
The goal of all of these first systems was to help explain the relationships that existed between man and a superior being. That relationship was often seen as being diluted by wealth, health and other aspects of man’s own personal use.
Pythagoras was one of the most influential people in the development of numerology. While he did not invent this system, he was certainly interested in it enough in order to advance it. He was able to predict the future for individuals by using their dates of birth and names. It was through much of his work that we are able to have a better understanding of numerology today and how it works.
There are many different forms and systems of numerology in existence today; some of which are based on the basic forms of numerology that were first established in the ancient world. Regardless of the type of numerology that you choose to focus on you will likely notice that all forms of numerology have some basic elements in common, including the study of one’s name and birth date and how they relate to a person’s inherent traits and characteristics.
In addition, numerology can be used to analyze the challenges that a person may face throughout their life and the methods that can be used for overcoming those challenges. In some cases, simply being aware of those changes can be sufficient enough for the person to overcome those challenges by working at balancing out their negative traits with more positive traits.
Finally, numerology is also frequently used to analyze the potential success of a romantic relationship in order to avoid the matching of two individuals whose inherent traits could potentially spell out disaster when it comes to love and romance. Numerology can also be used to analyze the potential problems that may be present in a relationship as well.
