From time to time, I received free lessons from a Mr. Mike Madigan of Numerologist.com like this one about calculating Life Expression Number sometimes known as the Destiny Number or the Personality Number.

According to Mr. Madigan this sum describes all of the talents and potentials that are at our disposal in this lifetime and is calculated from the letters that compose our full birth name.  It represents what kind of ideals or standandards we need to live up to in the lifetime to be “complete.”

This number cannot be your nickname or your married name, but rthe name that is found written in full on your birth certificate.  It is the number that reveals what makes you tick, what excites you and what motivates you as a person.  If your name is misspelled on your birth certificate, use that to configure your life expression number.

This calculation offers you a glimpse of how you can make the most of your experience on earth.  The value of your Life Expression Number shows what you are truly capable of or what you should look for when it comes to realizing your highest potential.

To calculate your Life Expression Number, treat each of your names separately and add up the value according to the conversion chart below.

Add up the value of each letter as assigned then reduced the sums together to get a single digit number except the master numbers 11 and 22 which are symbolic entities in themselves and the interpretation stand on their own.

Here are the interpretations:

Life Expression Number 1: You express yourself through independence.  Your talents include originality, creativity and the ability to launch plans into motion.  You have the potential to become very prosperous as a result of applying these skills.

Socially or professionally, a number 1 is the person that makes “things happen.” They make great entrepreneurs and do well by striking out on their own.  Your highest potential in life is to become the leader of something great.

Life Expression Number 2: You express yourself best by relating to others.  You are a diplomat and a peacemaker.  Socially you make so many friends that you often develop the capability to pull strings behind the scenes.  As you are so modest sometimes one of your challenges is to accept credit to your work.

You work best in a team and success in general for you is often about “who you know.”  You also do well when you ally yourself with a person who is much more powerful than you.

Life Expression Number 3:  You express yourself best through the arts.  These include writing, speaking, singing, acting, litigating, and teaching; selling, designing and composing music.

One often-unexploited talent of a number 3 is their natural ability to uplift others with their words and ideas. Their true purpose in life is to inspire and motivate others with their creations and optimism.

You find happiness when you focus on your artistic goals.  Fame is also often in the potential future of a 3 whose highest potential is performance.

Life Expression Number 6: You express yourself best through the balance of energy.  Many sixes excel as doctors, nurses, psychologists and any occupation that involves taking care of the elderly, the sick or the poor.

These exceptional individuals are born with an innate talent of uplifting the spirits of others, especially during hard times.  Some of them do this through service and others accomplish this through art, music or writing.

Your highest potential is restoring balance to ailing individuals or communities.

Life Expression Number 7: You express yourself bst by not expressing yourself at all.  This is because you are more than likely a genius.  Your supreme intelligence often makes you so you often don’t even bother communicating with others.  You could excel at any area of science, literature or metaphysics.

Number 11’s are conduits of spiritual information that often feel a great need to transform the world with their visions.  Many are involved in the occult or religion.

They are masters of manifestation who know how the power of a negative thought or image can destroy potential.  You fulfill your highest potential by bringing ideals into every day reality.
