Numerology had started finding the pattern of life and numbers for past 200 years. Various powerful souls devoted themselves to finding the spirit guidance reaching us in form of numbers from various cultures like Greek, Babylon and Hebrew cultures. The key to understand that the path shown in terms of name numerology chart or the spiritual counseling would just enlighten the right path for your soul but walking on it is entirely your choice. You must make the choice of seeking and following Spiritual numerology with dedication and faith.
Spritual Numerology seeks to interpret the numerical path of past lives, today and future. It shows what our karmas can achieve and lead our souls to the higher goal of our lives i.e. Moksha. In other words, it is never just about having a random lucky number and sticking to it but learning to follow the spirit guide that allows us to attain higher levels. For example, a numerologist may tell you that according to your karmic numerology number 2, you would have to deal with your karma of failing to use your intuition. That doesn't mean you start attempting to challenge your common sense from tomorrow to listen to your intuition better. It means you would have to follow it when your spirit guide is telling you to seek your soul.
The Numerology number meanings are particularly variable as per the type of numerology and the interpretations. The most important aspect is to not follow blindly. The people, who have bestowed their lives to understanding the pattern of numbers, would never want you to not create your own life. It is only the guide of life in form of numbers that can help us in making the challenging decisions of our lives but it can't live our lives for us. That is our karma and our life.
The strength of all these aspects of numerology is to understand that you may take help from the dedicated successful people yet you have to make life with your own hands. If you listen to your spirit guide you won't be lost in the deepest oceans but finding your destination is your karma, your soul deep commitment to life that can never be accomplished by pressing it on someone else's shoulders.
Any true patron of numerology wouldn't tell you the simplistic numerological meaning of numbers as it may tell you something about yourself but never the true insight that would propel you forward to live better. You must learn to your the spiritual counseling and meaning of your karmic lessons of numerology with discretion to select as and when deemed worthy of the effort by individual soul and the blessings of your soul guide.
Creating that kind of life which is in harmony with your soul and the inner soul guide is your responsibility and can never be dumped on anyone else's shoulders to relive yourself from taking the significant decisions of your life in your hand. Don't forget to balance the karma and your soul's innermost understanding of the world to move your life ahead.
