This post is going to be short and sweet. I hope it starts you on a life-changing journey of self discovery and success.
This morning I listened to a couple of interviews that opened me up to a new way of seeing the world. And they helped me to articulate my heart-felt message to you.
You are special whether you know it or not, whether you understand it or not, and whether you feel it or not.
You are no more special than anyone else, and no less special than anyone else.
If you are not aware of your specialness, it’s because of your perception of yourself.
You have everything you need inside to create your own heaven on earth.
You have already created everything that’s present in your life; everything you love in your life and everything you don’t love in your life.
If you have troubled relationships, you have created that; fulfilling relationships, you’ve created that.
If you have wealth, you’ve created it; lack of wealth, you’ve created it.
If you have good health, you’ve created it; health challenges, you have created them.
What you don’t like in your life is not your fault. We all come into this world with lessons to learn. We even chose them.
However, you have a mind, senses, and feelings you can use to tune into your soul, your higher consciousness that understands everything, from which you can re-discover your innate wisdom.
Your Chaldean Soul chart shows you your life purpose and your soulprint. But your Chaldean Soul Chart is only the beginning. The secret to actually living your purpose is learning to value everything about yourself.
It’s easy to value the talents your Chaldean Soul Chart shows you.
It’s hard to value the challenges that show up in your chart. But these are the source of your greatest accomplishments.
As you find the secret value in your challenges you experience a greater sense of self worth.
As you learn to value everything about yourself you become more confident. As your sense of self worth increases you share more with others. As you share more with others your wealth, health, and happiness increase.
How do you do this? You don’t have to spend years in therapy, although that was the case back in the day. There are now ways to resolve issues in as little as an hour or an instant.
I use a one-sentence statement that clears issues in an instant. I’m not going to share it here, but if enough people want it, I’ll share it in a future blog post.
The interviews that inspired this post were with Darius Barazandeh. I recommend them. Click here for a replay of the first one, available for a limited time.
Here’s the downloadable interview that shows you how to value your challenges.
Perhaps these interviews will change the way you see life, too.
You can also catch Darius on Facebook.
P.S. I’m not getting paid to refer you, I just want you to have every opportunity to live your purpose.
Love yourself and live your purpose every day.
I realize that the idea of using numerology creates fear and suspicion in many people. After all, there’s been a great deal of bad press about occult science for centuries. It takes a leap of faith to consider using one of these sciences as a tool for self help.
Some people fear numerology will control them; tell them what to do. Numerology does not dictate anything. Numerology is a source of information, like your computer. It’s a powerful tool for exploration. You are the judge of the value of the information you receive. You can accept or reject it, just like anything else.
Perhaps this article will shed light and help allay some fears.
I go on and on about life purpose because the most important thing anyone can do is live their purpose, and I love to help people live their purpose.
But first you have to find it. You already know what your purpose is because it’s all organized and ready to go in your innermost mind – the mind of your spirit. You know by now that I go on and on about numerology. That’s because this ancient science enables you to discover your life plan quickly and easily. However, numerology is not the be-all and end-all of life. It’s just a fabulous tool to help you live your best life.
There are other ways to discover your purpose. One way is to pay attention to your feelings. Notice the way you feel when you are engaged in certain activities. Are they satisfying, do they make you happy, proud of your accomplishments? Chances are these activities are expressions of your life purpose. Are certain activities frustrating, a waste of time, boring? Your feelings may be telling you that these activities are not a part of your purpose, or they could be telling you something about the challenges that are a part of your life plan.
But life purpose is about more than what you do. It’s also about who you are; your core values and standards; those characteristics that make up your personality; your dreams, desires, and feelings. You can be successful by simply learning to follow your feelings because your feelings are directly connected to your life plan.
Most people don’t pay much attention to their feelings. They go through life overriding their feelings because of certain ideas and beliefs. But feelings are the most important gage we have to direct us along our personal path to fulfillment. It can be tricky learning to discern true feelings from surface emotions, but that’s another subject.
When you calculate your Chaldean Soul Chart, your feelings will tell you whether it’s accurate or not. The interpretations will be confirmation of feelings you’ve had all your life – or they won’t. If you are using the name on your birth certificate, you will feel as if you’ve come home. If you can’t identify with the information you receive, you may not be using your name at birth.
Once you discover your purpose, you will likely need help implementing certain changes. You will find exactly the help you need at exactly the right time because you are in charge of your spiritual growth.
Learning more about your purpose in life is a great adventure. An author, life coach, and colleague of mine, Jerry Lopper, has written an e-Book called “Sample Personal Development Plan and Workbook,” that has an excellent module about life purpose in it, as well as dozens of exercises that can help you activate your life plan.

I hope this article has helped you. Leave a comment so I’ll know you’re out there.
And live your purpose every day.

Are you frustrated by your finances, your relationships, your career, or your health? You may be resisting a very important yearly cycle. Everyone starts a new year twice each year. The obvious one, of course, is on January 1. The other one is when your Personal Year begins on your birthday.
I’ve been off the radar screen for a few weeks untying some pretty intricate knots in my psyche. I’ve never experienced anything like it before; especially going into relative isolation as I did; and significantly, a month before a new Personal Year was to begin. Doubt and hesitation had been nagging me for a while. Then it seemed as if a wall suddenly rose in front of me and I couldn’t go forward. I was stopped in my tracks. Being the psychotherapist that I am, I recognized issues that needed to be dealt with, so I let go and followed my emotions.
What came forward for me were issues of trust and love. Thanks to guidance from spirit and some powerful self-healing techniques, I have come through a challenging time with a positive shift in consciousness. I feel clearer than ever; like a purifying light has been turned on inside me, and I’m happy to be in touch again.
I am now experiencing deeper levels of trust and faith (giving up control – ack!). I do not pretend that my adventure with trusting is easy. Sometimes it feels like walking a tightrope over Niagara Falls without a net. The opening of my heart has given me a deeper sense of calm and peace along with new levels of excitement and enthusiasm for life. I’m experiencing new levels of compassion, and I feel deeply connected with spirit, with humanity, and with myself.
Paying attention to my feelings has given me countless opportunities to become the person I was born to be. Like most of us, I have my share of limiting beliefs that hold me back. And, like most of us, I have resistance to dealing with the issues behind them. But when I allow myself to face and resolve the unpleasant emotions that come forward, I experience freedom. I actually breathe more freely and feel lighter.
I’m moving from a Number 4 year to a Number 5 year; from a quiet time of building a firm foundation, getting all my ducks in a row, to a year of change and activity. The transition from one year to another can be challenging because you’re influenced by two vibrations; the old one is fading out and the new one is moving in. Consequently, the two energies can combine to produce uncertainty.
Moving into a Number 5 year sometimes makes me feel insecure about the future, since there are changes coming, sometimes fast and unexpected. That’s when I know I need to be thinking thoughts of what I want instead of what I fear. The positive side of a Number 5 year is that energy is moving, and it is easier to launch new projects. A Number 4 year is not the ideal time to launch new projects. It is excellent, however, for reorganizing, systematizing, and developing discipline in order to be ready for the action and changes coming up.
During my last Number 5 year (9 years ago), I moved, started a new job, bought a new car, and began a new romance. The move was an unpleasant surprise and had to be done fast. The other events followed easily and naturally as the year unfolded. I had no idea any of these things would occur. That’s how a Number 5 year can be.
Everyone on earth is experiencing a personal year right now. Many people are just entering a new one. Personal years are important because they lead us step by step through important 9-year cycles called Pinnacles. Personal years present experiences that allow us to evolve; if we don’t evolve, we get stuck. Each year in the 9-year cycle creates a natural progression from beginning to end. Each cycle enables us to expand more deeply into our life purpose and rise to new levels of fulfillment.
If your year is turning out to be a bumpy one, you may be resisting its energy. It’s like swimming against a strong current; a lot of work for little advancement. If you are feeling impatient or bored with the pace of your life, you may be in a slower, quieter year. Understanding can help you use the energy in a positive way.
I think it would be fun to talk about your personal year. If you agree, leave your first name and your birth month and day (don’t need the year) as a comment to this post, and I’ll share with you the focus of your Personal Year. When you are in harmony with the energy of your Personal Year, you are creating the life you were meant to live. I’d love to hear about your experiences.
Is your life everything you want it to be? Are you as happy, as successful as you want to be? Or is something missing? Are you spinning your wheels, immobilized by problems, frustrated, fed up? Lost your enthusiasm, your joy, your confidence? Sometimes life is a downhill slide in the mud. I have come to believe when I get the dirty end of the stick, it’s time for me to grow again. Not always the most pleasant experience in the world, but I’ve learned it teaches me how to create more of what I want in my life. Growing has become the only way for me to resolve my pain.
Personal growth is vital to our health and happiness. We need to be constantly evolving. We are not meant to settle, to stop where we are. When we stop growing, we get sick and unhappy. Let me tell you how personal growth has been essential to my happiness.
When I was a little kid, I was so happy to be alive, so enthusiastic about everything, so enchanted with the world. And then came, inevitably, life experiences that gradually shut me down. Over time, my enthusiasm dwindled, my joy quotient decreased, my attitude lost altitude, and I began to live in a perpetual state of stress. I ran into huge roadblocks and spent years hiding in the safety of blaming other people for my unhappiness.
At the same time, I had a passion for exploring human potential which, in the beginning, expressed itself as fascination with psychic ability. I read lots of books, and my high school girlfriends and I held séances and talked about ghosts and related phenomena at sleepovers. Even so, I kept my interest below the radar, since people were pretty touchy about that sort of thing. I ended up putting my passion on the back burner and focusing on the business of everyday living.
Eventually, I became so unhappy I began to have anxiety attacks and sought professional counseling. It was a scary and wonderful experience. I gained more self-awareness, learned coping skills, and had no more anxiety attacks. But there was still something missing. What I didn’t realize at the time was that I was searching for myself. I wanted me back.
I continued to pursue my interest in human potential, which now included psychology in addition to metaphysics. Gradually I found the teachers who helped me transform my life. I gained a sense of direction and learned how to develop my passion for human potential into a career in which I could help others. I continued my own personal development through spiritual practice.
During my journey, I found it was pain that kept me moving toward personal transformation. Every time I paused on my path of enlightenment, my pain would eventually force me to take the next step. Gradually I took responsibility for my life, dropped the blame game, and began to create the life I had always wanted. I was empowered. Yowza! I discovered that I love to share what I learn. Yes!
I think there are many people who can identify with my story. We wander off our path and experience pain. We run from the pain until we can’t run anymore. My life changed when I decided to confront my pain.
One of the most helpful tools for personal growth I discovered was Chaldean numerology. I was amazed when I read my Chaldean Soul Chart to see my life right there in black and white. This chart told me so much about myself. It told me why I am the way I am, it showed me my life purpose, it gave me a blueprint for my direction, it showed me the potential in my future, that it’s OK to have challenges, and it revealed my talents and strengths. What could be better? Much of what I saw was confirmed by awareness I had had since childhood. I was excited again. My Chaldean Soul Chart showed me what I was meant to do with my life. It showed me the way to happiness and fulfillment. It gave me my identity back.
If you can relate to even a small part of my experience, I highly recommend you get your hands on your Chaldean Soul Chart. I would be happy to create it for you. Email me for the details. You will be amazed to learn how powerful you are.
