Calculate your Life Path Number
It is rather easy to calculate your life path number; it is simply the total of your birthday reduced to a single digit. If you were born on 11/13/1981, then your Life Path number would be 1+1+1+3+1+9+8+1=25=7. The Life Path Number is the leading number in the life of an individual. Your Life Path Number determines the skill sets and the natural talents a person will excel in, gravitate towards, and attempt to master. Now, let us learn about the Life Path Number 7!
Life Path Number 7 Meaning
An individual that has life path number seven is spiritual and mysterious. Therefore, they have passion and energy to find truth, understand dreams, and study philosophies. Their personality develops through their efforts to learn about the world by studying large patterns and a human being’s need for purpose.
As spiritual people, they embrace honesty, philosophy, and the mysteries of life. Therefore, they become successful through the guidance they offer others who are lost and in need of spiritual or psychological healing. Since they unlock the mysteries of life to succeed in life, they overcome challenges thrown in their way by experiencing failure, difficulty, and loss to learn how to overcome each experience and then teach others.
The Number 7 life path has a strong vibration for doing work that is a “calling”. These individuals want to be authentic and purposeful in any profession they pursue. Individuals with Life Path Seven will prefer to work for the greater good or a strong vision, helping people who seek them out do the same, whether the people share their vision or not.
With their devotion to truth through difficult experience, they must pass through a crucible of challenges before they are ready to help others for their own prosperity. This person succeeds by having a life resume that shows they know what they are talking about because they have been “through it”. Whatever career path they choose, they will want to council, coach, advise, and analyze people to move them from a state of struggle to one of self-confidence.
However, like the Life Path Six, they may find it necessary at times to realize that they cannot help everyone and that everyone does not want help. Their tendency to be concerned about getting to the truth “no matter what” can really overwhelm people. Since they want to be “deep inside the mystery”, they will often find willful ignorance or even unpreparedness frustrating. Therefore, they will struggle when they cannot get a person to “do their work”.
Number 7 individuals are intense and serious partners who need their lovers to be either as intense or very supportive. They may require far more maintenance because romance can get lost in their pursuit of higher awareness. They prefer to give love by getting to know and love the light and the darkness in their lovers. Therefore, this person can have a hard time with partners who do not take life seriously.
At their best, they are the most soulful and intense lovers. Once the partner has gained the loyalty and trust of a person with Life Path Seven, they have past, present, and future lifetimes of love to experience with a 7. The key phrase for this number in love and relationship is, “Let me know you”. They will say it and want to hear it.

A Life Path Seven child prefers to be an adult. Sevens are usually best as only children. If there are siblings, then this child can become an extra parent to his or her sibling(s). They will want to their parents to teach them ahead and above their peers. Do not talk “childishly” to a 7. The number 7 represents the “I seek” or “we know” principle. They will respect truth and honesty, and want the rules of the family to be geared to direct and honest engagement.
If the parent is a Life Path Seven, likely they will be the “serious” parent, unwilling to “sugar coat” life and setting high expectations for his or her children to be authentic. This parent engages most when the child goes through an important life transition or needs help at a difficult time. Since the Number 7 is a “mystic”, the parent that is a 7 will prefer to be the moral compass of the family.
Physical and mental health
The physical health of a Life Path Seven benefits most from disciplined exercise and mediation. Individual sports with rigorous training work best for this number. Winning is not as important as the spiritual purpose of the activity. At the core, this number wants to use exercise as a way to focus the mind and strengthen the spirit.
The mental health of a Life Path Seven also needs “to overcome emotional challenges”, so intense, dramatic, even traumatic circumstances wake them up mentally. This is a number that wants to keep its “mind focused”. Being attuned to purpose is essential for their mental health. This number, more than any other, becomes unhealthy when made to deal with the mundane and tolerate ignorance.
Other Numbers and Their Importance
You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Life Path Number. No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Life Path Number is the foundation. Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States. The number of your full birth name, as recorded on a birth certificate, is your Destiny Number. Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number numerology, or the address of you home.
How to Use Numerology in Your Life
Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships. If the Number 7 is your Life Path Number, then realize and test the idea that facing difficulty and overcoming it is how you make the best life for yourself and help the world.
