Numerology is the study of the ancient mystic science of Numbers and their deep esoteric meanings in relation to the universe in general, and to our lives, in particular. Before there was the alphabet, there was Number, which explains in a cosmic sense all the principles of the Divine. Everything comes from our first form of communication and Numerologists can chart out our Divine purpose in life, as well as the challenges and tests we will undergo to achieve it.
