# How To Calculate Your Life Path - Finding Purpose

Updated: Aug 12

Life Path numbers tell us so much about our authentic selves. It helps us to unlock the secrets of who we are, who we are meant to be, the life troubles we may experience and much more. Knowing your life path number can help you understand why your life is the way it is and help you to realize how to helps you fulfill your purpose. It even tells you who you get along best with!

Here are some simple steps to finding out your life path number.

1. Write down your birthday. Make sure the month is written by number.

1 - January

2 - February

3 - March

4 - April

5 - May

6 - June

7 - July

8 - August

9 - September

10 - October

11 - November

12 - December

2. Simplify each number to one digit by adding the digits together. Example 2006 would be simplified to 8 because 2 + 0 + 0 + 6 = 8 .

Ex. November 7 1994

11 . 7 . 1994

11 = 2

7 stays the same

1+9+9+4 = 23 . . . 2+3 = 5.

Now you have 3 different numbers. 2, 7 and 5.

3. Add all the single digits together now.

Ex. 2 + 7 + 5 = 14

4. Simplify the last number into one digit.

Ex. 1+4= 5

5. That final number is your life path.

There are 3 exceptions to the single digit life path number. Those exceptions are 11, 22 and 33. These are known as Master Numbers. These master numbered individuals normally have a very strong sense of purpose in life. They most likely go through very traumatic experiences that can be very shifting. The number being aplified gives them almost a super power with what that number symbolizes. Master numbers technically have the power of 3 numbers. Ex. 11 is also a life path 2 but has amplified traits of number 1. This can create conflict within yourself because you are experiencing opposing traits. Master numbered individuals must learn balance within themselves to remain at peace with themselves and their life.

Here is an example of calculating a Master Number.

January 11 1997

1 . 11 . 1997

1

11 = 2 ( 1 + 1 = 2)

1997 = 26 = 8 ( 1 + 9 + 9 + 7 = 26 and 2 + 6 = 8)

1 + 2 + 8 = 11

Just identifying your life path can help you understand yourself so much better than you ever have. It'll help you find out your natural strengths and weaknesses. But that it not the end all be all. Once you learn these weaknesses, you can turn them into your strengths! And begin taking control.
