absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin,
without even opening them.

P.S. As promised in the beginning, here is an example of how you calculate your Life Path Number:

Add all the numbers in your date of birth:
d+d+m+m+y+y+y+y = add each digit from the number you came up with to get a single digit
Example: 1st of August 1981 = 01/08/1981 = 0+1+0+8+1+9+8+1=28=2+8=10=1
Those who were born on the 1st of August 1981 have the life path number 1 (not 10, since 0 doesn’t count)

    Hello Sir,
    I truly appreciated your insight into the numerology of life path 9. It has the most depth I have seen and helps to provide information to a life path that feels complex. I have signed up for your website as a result of your posting. Thank you very much

    Life path number 9 truly is a blessing and a curse. With great power comes great responsibility. I’ve been a college instructor, alcohol rehab counselor, artist/designer, rebel without a cause. I’ve stood ground against bullies and authority figures. I am very much like my father. I am very liberal and see the imperfections of the world clearly. And I am an idealist, which makes life difficult.

    “You’re an idealist, and I pity you
    as I would the village idiot.”

    All my life I have always felt something higher calling me. I used to feel alone as a kid because of the relationships I had with both of my parents. It is not their fault though they do their best with me. I turned 20 on October 1st and I asked the Universe/God for a lot of growth this year. It has by no means been an easy year but I have been more happy and centered than ever before. I am experiencing life like never before and I am embarking on New Journeys that will amazing. Everything I have read and lived/experienced has been turning into a lesson to me. I feel blessed that I was sent guides along the way. Bob Marley is such a 9 though and I always felt a special connection with him when I listened to his music.

      What a beautiful transformation you have allowed for yourself! The complete coming a part in order to come together in a more whole and loving way.
      I am glad you are listening to the music of a fellow 9 person! I also invite you to go out in nature to strengthen your heart.
      You are a brave soul and you have not only blessed yourself by your work and commitment, you have healed us all!!

    A very informative article, thank you! The characteristics all tie up with my Eastern and Western horoscopes as well.
    I however, get confused in the process of adding the numbers. In fact, for long I thought I was an 8, using your calculation method. Some authors say the correct way to add is to separate the addition for each – the day, month and year – then adding the subtotals – which makes me a 9. Why is there no consensus in the calculation method? If the result varies so much I’d think the formula is a good place to start for us novices.

        You don’t have to be rich in order to start helping others. By phrasing your wish this way, you are breaking one of the rules in making your wish come true. I would recommend to start with the following two articles on the website:

        “9 Essential Rules To Manifestation Techniques Beyond The Law of Attraction”

        “11 Rules Of Dealing With Money And Staying On Top Of Financial Wave”

  7. Sm:)e (Actually it's Tabby for short)

    This really hit close to home, it was perfectly alined with my life like, it all made sense but the influence by father thing was correct on the major scale, the want to please everyone but hurt no one, the struggle to find the right person, all of this described my life, even some of the… Negative things

  8. Bre

    A lot of pages give descriptions of 9’s and for some reason they didn’t resignate with my truth until now, even though the descriptions are similar, yours is easily understood through the eyes of a true 9 life path number. Thank you for this.

  9. Shawn Paul Bertrand Jr

    I cried a bit when I read this. I have always felt like the hermit & the fool. I was born the 22nd… hence the fool. 07/22/1987=36=(9) my little sister is my best friend and is a 9 as well. 09/24/1992=36=(9) everything ok ng you said hit so close to home. It’s like you read my mind. Thank you for this. Its comforting to know there are kindred spirits out there even though sometimes we can feel and be so alone. -Shawn & Hilary
