Numerology – Western Or Chaldean?

There are two formal versions of Numerology in the world today. They are the ancient science of Chaldean Numerology based on the world’s original root language Chaldean/Sumerian (4,000 BCE), and the Western (so-called Modern) Numerology based on the pre-Roman Empire Alphabet of 22 letters (500 BCE). Both systems will be briefly explained and contrasted to provide you with a little more insight on the difference of the numerology calculators.

Chaldean Numerology is based on “sound-syllables” (sound frequencies/resonance) that generate energy, which creates the vibrational patterns of our “names.” The Western version of Numerology is not based on the vibrational patterns of sound-syllables, but on a simplistic, linear, and sequential assignment of numbers to the letters of the Western/English alphabet.

Numerology, the ancient science of numbers or the study of the significance of numbers, says that you are born with a set of unique numerical values that represent vibrational patterns which have definable and describable meanings. From those meanings we can find out our destiny, who we are compatible with, what our personality is really like, and more. The numbers of your name and birthdate can show you a design and blueprint that reveal the potential your life holds.

In Chaldean Numerology, sound-syllables resonate to numerical values which identify and define the vibrational patterns that affect our body’s physiology and energy processes, and impact the unfolding, living, changing environment in our lives. These vibrational patterns are then translated into written form through the interpretation of the language of numbers (numerology numbers).

The Chaldean Alphabet/Formula shown below assigns only “eight” root numbers (numerical values 1 through 8) to the sound-syllables (letters) of their alphabet. The Original Sacred Alphabet also shown below was expanded from 22 to 26 letters by the third millennium BCE to accommodate the language variations as humanity expanded outward. The Chaldean Alphabet/Formula applied characteristics to ensure the accuracy of interpretations of the patterns of our names. One characteristic was the power of the Number 9. The Number 9 was considered to be “Sacred” in and of itself, sacred not only because it was symbolic of the highest level of spiritual attainment, but also because its level of creative energy was higher than all numbers. The Number 9 could never be assigned to represent a single letter of the alphabet.

The Western version of Numerology includes the misunderstanding of the relationship of today’s disciplines of linguistics (study of written language/spelling), phonetics (vocal sounds/speech processes), and phonics (sound of letters of the modern alphabet) with the unrelated sound-syllable/vibrational resonance-based science of Chaldean Numerology. They appear to confuse the disciplines of modern language usage with the science of Numerology. Secondly, the Western number system discounts the sound-syllables of your name, and, as such, pays no attention to the vibrational patterns that flow from the energy that surrounds your name or name numerology. As a result, so-called Modern Numerology introduces uncertainty and inaccuracy in calculating and interpreting your name numerology.

Modern Numerology discounts the Sacred and Spiritual importance of the Number 9. The Modern system includes the “9” in the calculation of your name numbers which causes a misalignment of numerical values and guarantees that the results will be inaccurate. They assign the numbers 1 through 9 to the first nine letters of the alphabet and then repeat this sequence to the remaining letters of the alphabet (26 letters).

Modern (Western) Alphabet/Number Assignment

1 = A, J, S

2 = B, K, T

3 = C, L, U

4 = D, M, V

5 = E, N, W

6 = F, O, X

7 = G, P, Y

8 = H, Q, Z

9 = I, R

To illustrate how Chaldean Numerology can decipher the hidden code in your Name and Birthdate, we have generated a partial blueprint (chart) on actress Shirley MacLaine using her “Stage” name versus “Birthname.” This illustration gives you a glimpse into her character traits by converting letters into numbers and then applying a mathematical formula to arrive at the end result. Shirley MacLaine goes by her stage name instead of birthname, resonating 100% to those vibrational patterns and experiences stemming from that name. Below is a description of five of the nine characteristics that form her blueprint.

Before you begin a journey of self-discovery through numbers, it’s important to fully understand and appreciate the insight and information available from the application of the principles of Numerology. Since there are two systems of Numerology in existence, one needs to investigate and question the elements presented to confirm the accuracy of the results. At this time the Western system is the most widely used system. However, the uncanny accuracy of Chaldean Numerology, the most accurate system of Numerology known, has been and continues to be demonstrated from verifiable results through the use and application of scientific principles, ongoing study, investigation and research, and continuous real-time consultations.
