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 6!
Life Path Number 6 Meaning
An individual that has life path number six is nurturing and supportive. Therefore, they have passion and energy to help others, support their community, and teach. Their personality develops through their efforts to learn about the world by being of service to others.
As service people, they embrace compassion, empathy, and attentiveness. Therefore, they become successful through the support of others as matter of course and in times of need. Since they serve to succeed in life, they overcome challenges thrown in their way by helping people who can overcome the challenges and provide assistance.
The Number 6 life path has a strong vibration for connecting with people in need. These individuals want to be in a profession that allows them to support powerful people who help others and weak people who need direct help. Individuals with Life Path Six will prefer to work with people if the work is beneficial to someone with a particular need, the community in need, or helpful to society at large.
With their devotion to service, they stay committed to jobs because they can see beneficial and measurable outcomes from their efforts. This person succeeds by having skills that network the system together, which would be positions like an administrator, transportation driver, nurse, and so on. Whatever career path they choose, they will want to work where there is the greatest need to help the most people.
However, 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 more concerned about the greater good can cause people to dislike them personally. Since they want to be “saving the person or the planet”, they will often find selfish behavior frustrating. Therefore, they will struggle when they cannot get a person to see how they are self-inflicting harm.
Number 6 individuals are caring and nurturing partners who genuinely want their lovers to succeed. They may require far less romance if they feel their support is deeply appreciated. They prefer to give love by helping, and money is something they would rather use for the greater good than personal indulgence. Therefore, this person can have a hard time with partners who put their needs before others.
At their best, they are the most emotionally sound and anchoring lovers. Once the partner has gained the loyalty and trust of a person with Life Path Six, they have a lifetime of sympathy and care in front of them. The key phrase for this number in love and relationship is, “Let me know what you need”. They will say it and want to hear it.

A Life Path Six child prefers to be useful and directed. If the child is an only child, then he or she will want to find a cause or person to help. If there are siblings, then this child will want to involve his or her sibling(s) in his or her causes. They will want to their parents to take them places where they can help others. The number 6 represents the “I serve” or “we need to help” principle. They will respect compassion and forgiveness, and want the rules of the family to be geared to giving breaks when appropriate and extra effort when someone struggles.
If the parent is a Life Path Six, likely they will be the “ethical” parent, encouraging their child or children to engage in service activities as well as academics and sports. This parent engages most when teaching the child how to be helpful. Since the Number 6 is a “helper”, the parent that is a 6 will prefer to be the caretaker in partnership with a provider.
Physical and mental health
The physical health of a Life Path Six benefits most from paying attention to nutrition and daily exercise routines. Cooperative sports work best for this number. Winning is not as important as participating and letting everyone participate. At the core, this number wants to stay active by doing for others what they cannot do for themselves.
The mental health of a Life Path Six also needs “to be needed”, so emotional situations that allow them to help and lift another are ideal. This is a number that wants to keep its “hands busy”. Being there for others is essential for their mental health. This number, more than any other, becomes unhealthy when made to feel useless or unneeded.
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 6 is your Life Path Number, then realize and test the idea that supporting people in need is how you make the best life for yourself and help the world.
