Numerology and Mental
and Spiritual Health
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the
source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a
stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as
good as dead: his eyes are closed.” --Albert Einstein
month we will discuss the role of Numerology within Self-Improvement
in relation to the "Spirit and Mind." Last month we talked about
effects of stress on our bodies. This month I’d like to look at the effects
stress on our minds, spirits, and emotional health. We will look
ways in which we might use Numerology to arrange our lives so that we have
sufficient mental support.
Many of us often experience stress because of outside events or
we believe that we have been unsuccessful, feel overworked, or do not get
things that we want in life. What is it that you want? Do you have people in
your life to talk with about important issues? By talking with others, being
adaptable, being open, and willing to work on your personal self image, you
better deal with the tension in your life. Although your ultimate goals or
may not be visible
to you, you can help yourself alleviate anxiety by finding new ways to
discover more about yourself and what it is that you do want out of life.
Numerology, your Maturity number is one area to explore in order to get a better
understanding of your abilities. You may be aware that your Soul Number
indicates your wants, needs, and abilities on an inner level. Your Life Path
also gives you a general outline of your calling in life. This month, I
like to focus on the Maturity
Number. It is calculated with your full name at birth, and your birth
Your Maturity number shows how your Soul Number, Life Path number and other
personal numbers work together. Your Maturity number indicates abilities,
dreams, or desires that gradually surface between 30 and 40, with its
full force becoming stronger throughout your 40’s. Following your Maturity
number information can allow you to experience your abilities in unique
ways. Discounting it, or letting obstacles get in
your way, can bring about personal distress.
Of course, many of us might consider their 40’s to be midlife. What kinds
images, thoughts, and considerations cross your mind when you think about
midlife? To some it may bring up thoughts about a “midlife crisis," yet not
everyone, including countless professionals, believes in such a thing. Yet
author Jim Conway says, "Escaping the midlife development crisis is
probably as likely as the child escaping adolescence." Whatever you
believe, periodically reviewing your life, making changes, and finding ways
healthfully relieve stress will always benefit you.
Your Maturity number begins to have a more profound impact on your
life after the age of 35. It encompasses those skills and qualities that
relate to your true
self. It brings experience to the table. These are the skills that you can
try to develop within your lifetime. It also represents your ultimate dreams
and goals. While the characteristics of this number
are usually able to be seen during our youth and early adulthood, we tend to
sight of these aspects until we are older. But our lives are always
influenced by this number.
At midlife and all through our lives, we must decide what we have
faith in and work toward achieving that. This becomes more important, as you
realize that the power and influence of your Maturity number increases steadily

making certain choices, or not choosing a particular career. If you do have
regrets, or unfulfilled dreams, perhaps
the Maturity number has some clues for you. When you ignore your Maturity
number, you ignore a part of your true self. Accepting it can bring self

who has embraced and accepted life and willing to tackle its challenges.
You are less rigid, more adaptable, and better prepared
to accept your limitations. Also, you can more easily find ways to inspire
yourself, and others. Of course, you may
not be perfect, but you are willing to “get your hands dirty” and do the
necessary work when the need arises.
