The Chaldean Numerology

 This type of Numerology originated from Babylon by Chaldeans who were a tribe of people that lived in Ancient Babylonia around the 10th century BC. It is also known as the Mystical Numerology which rests itself that every number exudes off a certain vibration which gives its unique characteristics. It is also known as the Chaldean Gematria. In this, the single digited number signifies outer influences and the inner ones signify the inner aspects and dimensions of a person. Do you know that the largest Chaldean Numerological society existed in Southern Mesopotamia under Nebuchadnezzar, the leader of the region? 

No letters attached to number 9

 The numbers that the Chaldean Numerology use are from 1-8. They do not use the Number 9 because they think it is a very spiritual number and using it is forbidden in this system of Numerology.

The Pythagorean Numerology

Just like the name suggests, this system of Numerology was invented by Pythagoras in Ancient Greece. A numerical value is assigned by the number system following the sequence of the Western alphabet from 1 to 9. Unlike the Chaldean system of Numerology, the Pythagorean Numerology considers the number 9 to be used. All the numbers ranging from 1 to 9 are believed to hold a certain kind of vibration which can be used to predict a person’s life’s aspects. This system of Numerology is the most popular which is still used in the Western World.

Within Pythagorean numerology, 5 primary numbers are derived from a person’s birthday and their full birth name. These 5 numbers are known as the soul number, the power name number, the life path number, the personality number, and the birthday number. Amongst this, the life path number is held significant the most.

The Kabbalah Numerology System

 The word Kabbalah means knowledge that comes through the mind and soul and not through fresh or a blood relation teacher. Kabbalah Numerology teaches that everything around us has a hidden or mysterious meaning. The Hebrew language is utilized in the Kabbalah Numerology System. It is important to note that, unlike any other language, Hebrew language as a corresponding number associated with its alphabet. There’s no separate alphabet without a numerical alphabet and vice versa. 

How is Kabbalah different from the Chaldean and Pythagoras Numerology system?

 The Kabbalah Numerology system only uses the name of the individual and not their date of birth. Whereas the Chaldean and Pythagorean systems use the date of birth to provide informative results. 

 All these Numerology systems make us look around everything in awe and wonder. It makes us believe that everything has a purpose and energy that can only be understood by deep experience and not by chitter-chatter. All of us need to question and wonder why do we do certain things? Why do we have certain tendencies that others don’t? Knowing about Numerology systems as a tool to unravel the mysteries of this cosmos would be very beneficial in this pursuit.
