You Are More Than You Think You Are
Your Spiritual Core – Your Calling, the Direction of Your Life
Last week’s post was about your Life Purpose number. This week we’ll look at your Life Direction number, the second number listed in the Spiritual Core section of the Chaldean Soul Chart.
Your Direction number is placed in the second column of the Chaldean Soul Chart right underneath your Purpose number. It indicates the way in which you chose to express your purpose.
Your life purpose is funneled through the characteristics of your Direction number. For example, if you chose a life purpose of 3 and a Direction of 6, your purpose would be expressed differently than if you had chosen a 7 Direction number.
Your Direction number represents your soul’s calling, the most fulfilling career, job, or way of life for you – that which makes you feel excited, deeply contented, that this is where you belong. It can be a passion for something like being a parent, athletics, writing, dancing, entertaining, cars, administration, the list is endless.
Think about the thing that’s most fascinating to you. Is it your hobby, your career, is your life set up to express that right now? Or are you living your life according to someone else’s plan, hating your job, unhappy with your life, feeling empty inside?
Many people put aside their passions, unaware that their soul is calling to them; unaware that they can start now to bring their passions into their lives.
Is that you? Many have buried their passions so deeply they are unaware of them. If that’s you, this is the right time to start noticing what excites you, what wakes you up and fills your heart. Perhaps you’ll get a hint from the interpretations that follow.

Not all people with master numbers respond to the call of great mission. Some are satisfied to be fulfilled as the single-digit expression of their master number. Even when they do respond to their deeper calling, they sometimes retreat to their single-digit expression to take a break from the intensity a master number can bring.
