The Purpose of Your Life

Numerology Chart

by Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

Welcome! I am very excited to help you identify more clearly the path and purpose you were born to fulfill. I have studied numbers and counseled thousands of people for over forty years. Incredibly, the numbers have revealed, time and again, what is hidden from ordinary view. The numbers have the capacity to open our eyes and answer our questions.

I imagine that you—like many others—are asking the following questions.

“What am I supposed to be doing with my life?”

“What am I good at?”

“What will make me happy?”

“What is my passion?”

“What is my purpose in life?”

“What will I achieve by the end of my life?”

Amazingly, our name and birth date hold the keys to our life purpose!

How Numerology Works

Numerology is an ancient tradition. There is evidence that numerology was in use thousands of years ago in China, Greece, Rome, and Egypt—long before the time of Pythagoras, who is generally accepted as the “father” of numerology. Most of the earliest teachings were transmitted orally, only to the initiated, because the information was considered very powerful and sacred.

Numbers create order out of chaos. Pythagoras, a philosopher and mathematician, lived and taught in Southern Italy in the sixth century, B.C. His belief that reality is mathematical—a concept still alive in modern times—is the principle on which numerology is founded.

Numbers have meanings. By converting letters into numbers, you can discover the hidden meaning of any word or name. For this chart, I have selected and described the most important, core numbers which cast an influence on your life.

Your Purpose

Your Soul chooses your purpose. Your birth circumstances, including your specific parents, who brought you into the world, are not random. There is no assurance that you will be able to fulfill the entirety of any specific goal or purpose, as part of your reason for living is to exercise free will. However, you can be assured that you will be given opportunities (repeatedly, until your last day on Earth) to use your inherent abilities—thus fulfilling your natural role in keeping the world turning.

The purpose of your life is bigger than a job title or career. Numerologists believe that we come into life to gain new experience, learn different lessons, and, hopefully, accrue more wisdom. As we express our innate Spirit-given qualities, we naturally play our part on the world stage.

In seeking to fulfill the old adage, “know thyself,” you will find your chart to be a simple tool to increase your self-awareness, and discern the overall plan you have chosen.

Birth Path 19

Your Birth Path Shows Your Natural Talents And Instincts

Thomas, your birth date of July, 3, 1962, adds up to 19, which gives you the original, talented, and possibly quirky nature of the Karmic Number 19 (1).

Your basic nature as a 19 (1) Birth Path is, like most 1's, outgoing and stimulated by challenges and new frontiers. The karmic pull of your 19, however, may cause you to hesitate when making career or life decisions. You have the qualities of a leader, but oddly, you might think of yourself as the “reluctant leader.”

You may hold yourself back at times, concerned that you might appear too pushy or self-centered. Such unconscious reactions could be a hold-over from previous lifetimes, when, for example, you suffered public humiliation or worse. Leadership poses potential conflicts or lessons for you. Other possible scenarios might be that in a past lifetime(s), you had been self-centered, abused your power, or deviated too far from the mainstream. Now, you instinctively shy away from positions inviting public scrutiny.

“I don't need to be under pressure all the time.” might be something you think or say to justify either staying where you are, or avoiding a strongly competitive field.

Birth Path 19

  • From the day you were born, as a 1 Birth Path, you understood that it's up to you to create your own success. The unconscious emphasis on independence of the karmic 19 may have caused you to leave home at an early age. Despite a tendency for self-doubt, you like making your own decisions. With past karma to resolve, you instinctively place a high value on integrity, courage, and self-reliance.

  • Sometimes the karma of 19 will create a situation where you make a mistake with serious consequences. There could even be repercussions from a scandal. On the other hand, you may have to confront the wrongdoing of others, deciding whether or not to become a whistle-blower. Another possible aspect of the 19 may be that someone else takes credit for (or profits from) your invention or idea.

  • Dealing with the spiritual purpose behind your 19 karma makes you particularly attuned to moral values, personal responsibility, and the importance of integrity and reputation.


We tend to forget that our purpose is to be, just as much as it is to do. Most of the time we give little thought to our key traits—like a fish swimming in the water, unaware of the water. Our personality and interests just seem to be us. We may not stop to think that the way we operate in the world has a profound effect all on its own, setting in motion consequences we may not even realize.

Your natural characteristics are there for a reason. Each trait is necessary for you to enjoy and fulfill the purpose of your life.

Thomas, your independent, karmic number 19 (1) Birth Path has the following key being traits. You naturally fulfill your life purpose when using these qualities.

  • A reluctant leader, your karma lies in overcoming fears of ridicule or making a mistake.

  • Observant and questioning, you are the eyes and ears of the cutting edge.

  • Original thinking is crucial to your role as one of society's ground-breakers.

  • Unconventional and sound thinking is required for your purpose as a pioneer and way-shower.

  • Courage allows you to be a first-responder, or to confront or pay back your karmic debts.

  • Highly motivated, your personal desire to excel helps bring new methods to all.

  • Self-sabotaging traits: indecision; bad decision leading to scandal or loss of copyright.

Introduction to your Attainment Number

“Where is my life purpose leading me?”

“What will be my focus in later years?”

“What will I be doing in my retirement years?”

As you enter maturity (more or less after age fifty-five), things begin to come together. The unique pattern created by your various experiences, skills, and whatever wisdom you gained will flower along the lines of your Attainment Number. You could think of the Attainment as an ultimate goal. It is the hidden target that your life purpose was aiming at all through your life, probably without realizing it. Your Attainment Number

Your Attainment Number Description

“Where is my life purpose leading?”

“What will be my focus in later years and retirement?”


Thomas, your life purpose has been gathering energy towards your final Attainment Number 5. Ironically, this quality could have been subtly noticeable in your early childhood behavior. In maturity, it begins to become apparent from your mid-fifties and beyond.

The following key points suggest how you can make the most of this restless, ever-curious number 5 lifestyle:

  • Keep busy, but avoid too many irons in the fire. You see so many opportunities to explore!

  • Retire or become a free-lance consultant for as long as you enjoy the work.

  • Stay informed and involved with what is happening in the world.

  • Enjoy outdoor activities, especially with younger people.

  • Develop talents or interests you never had time for before.

  • Travel to those places you've always wanted to go but never had the chance.

  • Stay active; become more fit than ever; join with others on interesting projects.

  • Get involved with public affairs or a progressive social movement.

  • Avoid scattering forces through financial over-optimism, or prolonged self-indulgence.

How to Fulfill The Purpose of Your Life

Understand that Law of Attraction magnetizes people, events, and opportunities into your life in order for you to fulfill your purpose.

  • Like the physical law of gravity, Law of Attraction is a fundamental organizing function of your world.

  • The Law is working whether you know about it or not.

  • As the old adage states, “What you sow, so shall you reap.” The Law must match your basic energy vibration.

  • To maximize the effects of Law of Attraction focus your thinking with positive expectations and intentions.

  • Notice which numbers in The Purpose of Your Life Numerology Chart resonates the most strongly. Practice thinking of yourself as the number and what is stands for.

How to Fulfill The Purpose of Your Life

Here's an exercise to help you attract your “ideal” situation or job.

  • Look at at your life now (i.e., what Law of Attraction has brought so far).

  • List points that you don't like about your current situation or job.

  • Re-write each disliked point into an “ideal” version (i.e., ideal for you). For example, change “I don't feel this is what I'm supposed to be doing.” into “I love what I do for a living.” Be as specific as possible about what you want to attract, but a general statement is okay to start with.

  • If you think your life purpose involves healing, write a general affirmation, such as, “I want to know more about healing practices.” Very soon, you should start noticing all kinds of things regarding healing practices, training schools, healers in the news, and so forth. If healing is part of your purpose, the way will open up.

How to Fulfill The Purpose of Your Life

Make sure your thinking is connected to a true feeling of passion (or strong interest).

  • Just going through the motions intellectually by saying I want to “help people,” or “have a good life” is okay to some extent.

  • It's more powerful if you feel a deep emotional connection to what you say you want.

  • As you stay in touch with the joy you feel about something, you power up Law of Attraction to bring you exactly the people and opportunities that match your ideal!

How to Fulfill The Purpose of Your Life

Intuitive guidance is your navigational tool for fulfilling the purpose of your life.

  • Images, thoughts, and feelings are all aspects of something that is coming into your awareness. They are not random.

  • Your gut reactions may be subtle, so keep reviewing past choices to see if you dismissed an idea that turned out to be relevant. Was there something about a choice that later proved to be a factor you should have paid attention to?

How to Fulfill The Purpose of Your Life

To increase and understand intuitive messages

  • Practice paying more attention to your first impressions. Notice any “gut reactions” when interviewing for a job or facing any choice.

  • Notice when something seems to stand out. Does it feel positive, neutral, or “off?” Think about why. Your life purpose unfolds as you make choices.

  • Begin to notice how a mental image may pop into your mind, when you are trying to make a decision to do this thing or that thing. The more you practice, the clearer intuition becomes.

  • The image that pops up is an intuition. For example, take a moment to think about what to do this evening.

  • Did a picture of a place or person come to mind? What significance do you find?

  • Trust that the metaphysical Law of Attraction is always at work bringing people and events that match your internal life energy field.

  • Whenever making choices, go in the direction of what seems to be the most positive energy.

  • Synchronicity (two or more events that happen together, but are not causally linked) is often the way the Universe handles the details for you. There are no coincidences. Sometimes you don't even notice how things sometimes fall into place effortlessly. These are moments when your life purpose is a little more evident.

Warmest regards on your unfolding path,
Carol Adrienne
