The active number offers a unique insight into your personality using only your first name. By calculating this number, you can better understand yourself or learn more about another person. We’re going to explore the main aspects of personality that this number represents as well as taking a look at the incredibly simple calculation methods that anyone can follow.
The Power of your First Name
First names are never selected entirely at random and as such, each carries a distinct reflection of our place in the universe. The simplest way to view active numbers is as a representation of personality or character.
This may seem little vague, active numbers allow insight into a person’s behaviors. This includes the ways in which they interact with others, how they perform within certain environments (such as professional or social), and how they are likely to react in almost any situation.
Another way of looking at this number is as a guide to your true self. You can use the information it provides to determine the aspects of your life that require balancing. The importance of this balance cannot be understated as it is the key to achieving your desires, and ultimately success and happiness.
Therefore, we can use active numbers as a tool or guide for improving our interactions with others and better understanding our path in life.
Calculating your Number
In order to calculate your number, you take the first name and add every number from its transcription from letters to numbers, then you keep adding individual numbers of the result to reduce it into a number between 1 and 9 unless it adds up to 11 or 22.
If we go back to Isabella Smith’s example, this is how her first name will be analyzed using previous data:
Deconstruction of the first name
I+ S + A + B + E + L + L + A = 9 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 3 + 3 + 1
Reduction to a single figure or to a numerological number
9 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 25
2 + 5 = 7
This number is her active number. If her first name had the Spanish spelling with a single L, her initial sum would add up to 22 and this number would have been kept as is (this number has a numerological interpretation, like the number 11).
