Philosophy of Kabbalah Numerology

Philosophy of Kabbalah Numerology

Kabbalah numerology is one of the ancient systems of calculating the effects of numbers in this universe.

The Hebrew word kabbalah means “receiving” or “that which has been received.” 

The philosophy of Kabbalah reveals how the universe and life combine to work together. Kabbalah numerology analyzes an individual’s basic characteristics and inner self while teaching us how to receive fulfillment in our lives. According to this system, our physical universe operates according to a series of laws governed by a spiritual system. 

Origin of Kabbalah Numerology

Kabbalah numerology originated approximately 4,000 years ago and was developed by Abraham, a great scholar. Some people believe the system was developed much earlier. The name Kabbalah means oral tradition, which suggests that the system that emerged in 2,000 BC was likely passed along by oral tradition before that.

The Kabbalah and Hebrew Mysticism

Kabbalah Numerology

The Kabbalah numerology originated in Hebrew mysticism. As it was developed using the Hebrew alphabet, it has only 22 vibrations, ranging from 1 to 400. The system was subsequently adapted to Greek and Roman alphabets.

The Kabbalah numerology interprets only the meaning of the name. As a result, modern numerologists do not practice it as it does not consider the date of birth in interpretation. This system focuses on events over characters.

Kabalah numerology draws the Tree of Life for calculation and analysis. The Tree of Life is a graphic portrayal of these universal original forces: Kether, Chokhmah, Binah, Chesed, Geburah, Taphareth, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Makuth. Three key systems emerge from the Tree of Life analysis.

Both the Chaldean and Kabbalah systems follow more or less a common numerical classification and interpretation. Now, let us see the meaning of Kabbalah numbers from 1 to 9.

Interpreting the Hebrew Alphabet

To overcome the problem of interpreting the Hebrew alphabet, many modern numerologists have converted the Hebrew alphabet into English. However, the alphabet does not have English equivalents and is arranged in a different order. Calculating the numerical equivalence of letters in Hebrew is known as Gematria. So, it is very difficult to know or study Hebrew numerology if you are unfamiliar with the numerology alphabet.

Working out your numerology number

Vedic Numerology

Vedic numerology is an Indian system of numerology rooted in ancient Vedic texts. It comes as no surprise to us, as India is the one that gave us the concept of Zero or Shoonya. As they say, all of life can be packed into a series of ones and zeroes. The Indian Rishis (scholars) were also the first to discover that numbers exist in just about everything. They found that each number has a vibratory resonance behind it and influences us on both a conscious and subconscious level.

what is Chaldean Numerology

Chaldean Numerology

Chaldean numerology, developed by the Chaldea people almost 4,000 years ago, is probably the oldest form of numerology. The Chaldea people were quite famous for their contributions to mathematics, physics, and astronomy. They possessed a sound knowledge of stars and, to a lesser degree, magic. Their study of the occult led them to develop a system to analyze the effects of stars on the earth, especially human beings.
