Numerology is the study of spiritual values associated with numbers. Mundane numbers are 1 to 9. Master numbers are doubles of the mundane numbers from 11 to 55.
Angel numbers and messages are triples of the mundane numbers (111 to 999). There are also nine Orders, which are quadruples of the mundane numbers (1111 to 9999). When Angelic numbers appear in your life, you need to understand the divine message being offered to you and the Angel or Order sending the message.

Mundane, Master, Archangel, and Divine Order Numbers
We all have a personal numerology based on our date of birth and our full birth names. We also all have many different connections to divine energy. If we look at our birth date as both a series of numbers and a total, we can learn about the mundane, master, archangel, and divine order numbers for this incarnation. Treat your birth date and name as individual; your birth date makes you part of a collective, since roughly 350,000 births occur per day (according to UNICEF 2020 figures). Your name is unique and represents your particular divine connections, which may overlap with others not born on the same day.
Birth Date Numbers
Let’s consider a person born on 11/3/1973. The total for this birth day is 25, which reduces to 7. There are two 3s, so a master number 33. And, there are three 1s, so the divine number 111, and a connection to Uriel. 7 and 9 are mundane numbers for the people born on this day. 7 is emphasized because it repeats the total number for the date of birth.

Divine Fragments as Lessons for Wholeness
The human experience is fragmented, and purposely so. When a knowledge becomes deeply embedded or commonly repetitive, we often lose both a sense of appreciation and understanding. Think about toys or games you played as child that required assembly or complicated rules that you left behind when you became an adult. If you revisit them, you may have to relearn how to put them together or play again. They are part of your experience and something lost that you need to regain in a more mature and whole form.
We are all divine, part of the divine, and weaving in and out of the wholeness of the divine for the joy of life and living. Numerology is yet another system that helps you know and understand your connection to the divine in this lifetime.
