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.
When a number repeats in the total or reduces to a repeating number, it is considered a master number. These numbers include 11, 22, 33, 44, and 55. Master numbers “double up” the impact of the number being repeated. They stand alone, first; then you reduce them (11/2, 22/4, 33/6, 44/8, 55/1). Now, let us learn about the Life Path 55!
Life Path Number 55 Meaning
An individual that has life path number 55 is a futurist and driven to the pinnacle of self-determination. Therefore, they have passion and energy to look to the future, explore the unknown, and look outward for possibilities. Their personality develops through their efforts to do and act according to their own inner compass.
As people, they embrace fearless opportunity and follow the path they carve out (not the one least traveled). Therefore, they become successful on their own terms more dramatically than the normal number 1. Since they act with Destiny’s blessing, they overcome challenges thrown in their way finding their unique way to address the challenge as a joyful lesson.
The 55 life path has a strong vibration for being the sole source of income for himself or herself; they are their work. These individuals want to make sure their identity and work provide people with the specific help or skill only they possess. Individuals with Life Path 55 will prefer to work alone and maybe even mysteriously (known for the work but unknown personally).
With their devotion to Authenticity (with a capital A), they self-actualize as the way they prosper. This person succeeds by doing what they need to survive and can work without a plan, trusting their ingenuity will see them through each day successfully. They are their work and their work is them.
On the shadow side, they can be unreliable because they go with the wind and easily move on without looking back. Their tendency to know that “there is something new to experience” can lead to unsatisfied experiences for people who might rely on them. Since they want to enjoy new experiences, they can lack continuity necessary for an actual career.
55 individuals are fun and exciting partners, who want to fully enjoy the moments together. They pursue each experience with a full sense of presence that no other number can achieve. Since they live in the moment and are ready for the next moment, they can be truly intense lovers. Therefore, this person can be very untethered about any kind of commitments.
At their best, they are lovers who can “make the moment the best” with their partner while it is happening. They do not worry about being trusted or having loyalty, for tomorrow is a new day. The key phrase for this number in love and relationship is, “I love you now”. They will say it, and enjoy hearing, but do not need to hear it.
A Life Path 55 child is a pioneer, and is ready to get out into life as soon as possible. If they are an only child, they will constantly move towards living their own life freely. If there are siblings, then this child will enjoy them when they are around and not miss them when they are not. They will want their parents to show them how to gain and keep their freedom. The 55 represents the “I am who I am” and “there is no we” principle.
If the parent is a Life Path 55, likely they will be the “where did you go” parent, entering and exiting a child’s life with the ebb and flow of changing circumstances and alternate choices. This parent engages when the child is in front of him or her, but otherwise does not pursue parenting consistently.
Physical and mental health
The physical health of a Life Path 55 eats what is in front of him or her and will run if chased or if he or she feels like running on that day. There is no set pattern with this number. Physical health is just a matter of existing and doing what is either needed or pleasurable to survive from day-to-day.
The mental health of a Life Path 55 needs “nomadic freedom”, so they can easily live without possessions or make millions and go back to living without possessions. This is a number that needs to be unmoored and enjoying life as it happens. “Pure freedom” is essential for their mental health.
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 55 is your Life Path Number, then realize and test the idea that entering and exiting circumstances and people’s lives to have and give profound experiences is how you make the best life for yourself and help the world.
