Spiritual Meaning of Numbers - An Overview


Visitors: 446

Numbers are the language of our universe. As the stars dance above in accordance to pre-determined paths, so are all of our activities governed by math. Since the beginning of logical philosophy, this perfect order has been seen as evidence of supernatural design and humans have sought to comprehend the spiritual meaning of numbers. Today, Pythagorean numerology is widely used in both old and new contexts, though sometimes criticized due to it's history of secrecy and magic. However, numerology has spiritual roots in the interpretation of Hebrew writing and in numbers in the Bible.

Hilda Phoebe Hudson said that, “to all of us who hold the Christian belief that God is truth, anything that is true is a fact about God, and mathematics is a branch of theology. " Many are familiar with the meaning of the number 666. The number of the beast has had Christians watching their lives for three sixes for millenia. However, the spiritual meaning of numbers has more to it than the devil! Some modern Christians choose to interpret double or triple integers that they notice repeat in their lives (on a clock or sign, etcetera) as “angel numbers" to be interpreted by using the Pythagorean technique of adding the digits to find the spiritual meaning of numbers.

The Meaning Of Numbers:
1. ) The number one in Pythagorean numerology represents rugged individualism and aggressiveness for survival. The Cantonese believed that one meant a sure thing.
2. ) Two is a blessed balance or a union of female and male in Pythagorean belief. The Chinese meaning might be more related to simplicity and ease.
3. ) The number three is reflected in the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and in the story of Christ rising after three days of death. It is representative of completeness.
4. ) Four represents stability that can be build upon to initiate creation in Pythagorean numerology, however, the Chinese thought it unlucky and related to suffering before death.
5. ) Five to Pythagorean numerologists represents the tireless action required in order to avoid instability. The Chinese felt that this was the number associated with the self and the individual.
6. ) Through the Pythagorean system, the growth and temporary stability represented by the number six shows a point where one can pause to understand before moving on. The Chinese believed six to be easy and simple.
7. ) In Hebrew, the word “seven" also means “full" and “complete. " More negative in Chinese systems, the Pythagorean philosophy casts a shadow of mystery on seven to be puzzled out.
8. ) To Pythagoras, eight represented having enough power and fulfillment to be able to sacrifice some before moving on, if necessesary. In several cultures, eight can represent prosperity and abundance.
9. ) The spiritual meaning of numbers in many cultures recognizes nine as the most lucky digit, since it is only one less than ten. It is the moment of change and transition before the ultimate. The Chinese believed it to be related to the concept of eternity.
