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 6

Your Birth Path Shows Your Natural Talents And Instincts

Natalie, your birth date of September, 23, 1981, adds up to 15, which gives you the caring and responsible outlook of the 6 Birth Path.

Your basic nature as a dutiful 6 Birth Path is to always to do the responsible thing. You are fulfilling your purpose whenever you are serving family, friends, or community—whether it be a piece of advice or a piece of cake. You are a provider—of good will, information, caring, comfort, beauty, nourishment, or guidance.

“How can I help?” might be your natural response to almost anyone you meet! If asked what your purpose in life is, you are likely to say, “To make sure everything gets taken care of.”

Birth Path 6

  • Almost from the day you were born, you scanned the environment for what needs doing. You believe that everyone deserves a chance, everyone deserves respect and—at times—a hug.

  • You see your purpose in life as being an active participant in the fabric of a family, circle of friends, community, or humanitarian organization. You are drawn to respond. You cannot escape the idea that if you don't help, who will? Professionally, you might run a business or gravitate to education reform, improved health policies, environmental issues, and the rights of humans and animals.

  • Often a talented artist, designer, musician, therapist, or teacher, you deeply believe that humanity must be nourished spiritually through art, literature, music, and beauty.


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.

Natalie, your responsible and reliable 6 Birth Path has the following key being traits. You naturally fulfill your life purpose when using these qualities.

  • Advice-giver. You have a natural ability to scan for what needs doing or fixing.

  • Reliability shows people they can trust and depend on you—so they turn to you first.

  • Love of traditions helps you sort out what is essential and life-giving and worth preserving.

  • Loyal, you hold together families, communities, and associations.

  • Inspiring and talented, you excel at moving people's hearts and minds.

  • Provider and service-oriented, your warm presence helps others feel cared for.

  • Self-sabotaging traits: over-committed; anxious; over-thinking others' problems.



Natalie 8

At the Soul level, this name highlights the chance to realize the true meaning of power, money, and status.

Christine 6

You find great fulfillment as part of a group, whether it's a social network, theater group, nursing team, community organization, religious group, or humanitarian effort. You are the glue that holds society together. A much-loved character, you may reach people through, teaching, counseling, art, music, writing, or singing. Spiritually, your purpose is to offer inspiration, comfort, understanding, and selfless service.

Introduction to Destiny: Your Full Birth Name

“What am I “supposed” to be doing?”

“What is the purpose of my life?”

  • As you saw in the previous slides, each of your names, individually, have a certain contribution or bearing on the purpose of your life.

  • Next we will look at the total value of all the letters in your full name. Your full name is your Destiny Number.

  • Your Destiny Number indicates the environment and sphere of life, where you will fulfill your life purpose.

  • You Destiny number activates specific strengths and predispositions in your nature.

  • Your Destiny number prompts you to develop certain interests.

  • Your Destiny number attracts exactly the right people, places, and things for you to fulfill your purpose.

What if I change my name?

  • If you change your name after birth, the new name adds another dimension, such as, a new interest or goal.

  • The new name may seem to pull you in a different direction. However, despite the overlay of a new name's energy, you always retain your core nature and sense of identity.

  • Your birth Destiny is always active, however modified by a name change. Usually, the effects of a name change are felt within a year of taking the new name.

What is my Destiny and Purpose?


Natalie, your rather dramatic, bigger-than-life 9 Destiny demands that you develop a philosophical and humanitarian outlook. The world needs you to bring a message of tolerance, understanding, and respect for all cultures. Personally, anything is possible on your expansive, surprising, and capricious path. You are fulfilling the purpose of your life when you:

  • Are happy, in love with life, and hopeful for the future. Your emotionally-rich purpose in life can be found in the words of singer, Sheryl Crow, “Love is all there is,” and the Beatles, “All you need is love.” Ironically, your Destiny, may sometimes bring you together with challenging people from all walks of life as a test of your faith in humanity. At these times, your purpose is to rebound from reversals without becoming selfish, bitter, or intolerant.

  • Are learning, serving, supporting, or teaching. The purpose of your life involves raising awareness. Your deepest purpose is to help eliminate ignorance and oppression. You are naturally drawn to higher knowledge, cultural diversity, the arts, and humanitarian efforts. Sounds rather operatic in scope, doesn't it? In fact, your Destiny is likely to open doors in a variety of fields or conditions, where you connect with a broad range of humanity. You purpose unfolds as you follow interests in volunteering, travel, other cultures, languages, music, art, drama, philosophy, or literature.

  • Are a role model for peace, hope, equality, kindness, and good will. Your highest spiritual purpose is to uplift humanity, whether it's one person at a time or performing on a world stage. Your life purpose may place you in the humblest or highest of circumstances. Acting against what you know to be right will have serious consequences.

Your Heart's Desire Number—What Makes You Happy

The vowels in your name express your Soul Urge or Heart's Desire—a motivating force from birth. The Soul Urge is the engine that ensures that you fulfill the purpose of your life. You may ask:

“What would I do if money were no object?”

“What activities do I gravitate to if I have a choice?”

“What would I like my purpose to be?”

“What makes me happy?”

Natalie, you have a 5 Heart's Desire. What kind of life (focus/purpose) would make your heart sing? With your 5's restless urge to explore and avoid feeling trapped, what makes you happiest is

  • A life with the freedom and money to travel; pursuing your ever-changing interests.

  • Freedom to make your own luck; situations with a potential to hit the jackpot.

  • Time to work, and plenty of time to play; road trips; off-road trips.

  • Lucking into a good opportunity; doing something adventurous, slightly risky, and fun.

  • Avoiding rigid schedules, committee meetings, or predictable routines.

  • Having your own business, or very flexible hours.

  • Introducing changes that create a big pay-off, and make everybody happy.

Careers: flight attendant, tour guide, driver, seminar leader, publicity agent, performer, sales, athlete, journalist, news anchor, photographer, politician, risky or unconventional jobs.

The Relationship Aspect of Your Destiny Number

“How does relationship fit in with my life purpose?”

“Will I marry or commit to a long-term relationship?”

“Are children part of my life purpose?”

Natalie, with your charismatic and emotionally passionate 9 Destiny, you might expect...

  • To enjoy dramatic and florid relationships with creative people—actors, musicians, bohemians.

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

  • Is the realization of your life purpose.

  • Is the fruit and outcome of your efforts.

  • Is the continuing purpose for your life in your last chapters.

  • Reveals where life is, or has been, leading you.

  • Is a signpost to consider in early years to help you prepare for later life.

  • Shows how to align with the natural forces to create a happy, secure life.

  • Describes the nature and environment of your later years.

  • Is a blueprint of the purpose of your life in your later chapters.

Your Attainment Number Description

“Where is my life purpose leading?”

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


Natalie, your life purpose has been gathering energy towards your final Attainment Number 6. 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 home-loving, service-oriented number 6 lifestyle:

  • Stay involved with family and domestic concerns.

  • Enjoy grandchildren; help send them to college.

  • Avoid becoming overly-involved with problems in your family.

  • Find a hobby that you always wanted to try, especially if you can enjoy it with a group.

  • Create a comfortable, simple lifestyle; share your home with friends.

  • Keep fit; release stress by puttering.

  • Take or teach classes for fun, but no need to create another busy schedule.

  • Remain as active as possible; travel if you want, but no need to leave home, either.

  • Earn income, if needed, by offering a service (tutoring, home- or child-care, driving).

  • Pensions and other funds should be adequate for a very pleasant lifestyle.

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
