Numerology is an interesting concept which cannot be grasped instantly. Rather one has to invest some time to know it. Numerology’s roots go back to ancient Babylon and ancient Greece to ancient cultures of the East, etc. As cultures developed, they formed a certain understanding of the numbers and used them to draw inferences about past, present, and future. People in modern times have claimed to see repeated numbers wherever they go. They see 11, 33, 77, 11:11 on the clock, and much more. This is a synchronicity that not all people can notice.

Some people just believe in Numerology whereas some know its significance. Numerology is not a question of belief or disbelief. You can see the aforesaid patterns very clearly once you develop cohesiveness with people or with your surroundings. Every number has a certain vibration and frequency. Expression Number is once facet of Numerology which explains to us why we are the way we are.

Expression Number gives inferences about a person’s personality, how they choose to express themselves in the world and how they feel about it inside. As it is said, our outward expression is usually the result of our inner situation. It is very important that we maintain peace and calm to be at our best in expression.
