All About Life Path Number 3

What is a Life path number?

A life path number, also known as a destiny number, is a concept in numerology. It states that the numbers that make up your birthday hold a strong influence over your personality, dispositions, and your approach to different circumstances in your life.

Your life path number is not very different from your zodiac sign. Like Zodiac signs, certain life paths are known to be more compatible with other life paths. Just like how there’s much debate over which Zodiac sign is the best, there is also much debate as to which Life path is the best. You can easily ascertain your life path number with a few calculations.

Basically, you can get your life path number by adding the numbers serially till you get to a single digit.

For example, a person born on the 8th of July, 1987. First, we add all the numbers in the year together till we get a single-digit: 1+9+8+7=25. Then 2+5= 7, since all the remaining numbers are singular (the day and the month), we add them to the year.

Thus, 7 (from the year) + 7 (from the month) +8 (from the day) = 22. After, we add those digits together till we get a single number: 2+2=4.

Alternatively, if you are like me and you cannot be so easily tricked into doing math for free, you can calculate your Life path number for free here.

In the example given above, any person born on that day is on Life path number 4. This Life path is also known as “The Worker”. People on this life path tend to value structures, the claim discipline, and are strong advocates that health is wealth.

In total, there are nine life paths. If you are curious to find out more about your life path.

As you can see, a person’s life path is central to them finding their purpose. When a person is not on the right life path, they may feel out of sync with the universe if they don’t know that purpose is. Understanding your life path will ensure that you know more about your purpose.

When this happens, you will be able to tap into your core frequency. 

Your core frequency is the central plan of your life. Tapping into your core frequencies ensures that you get what the universe has in store for you more. You can find more info on how to tune into your core frequency on my youtube channel.

I love to create, I always have. I used to present my schoolwork in funny sketches, I love creating videos for my youtube channel and write blog posts.

4: You possess an innate dislike for structure and responsibilities

You tend to dislike structure and responsibilities. You find them to be limiting in a world that can be so limitless.

When confronted with the challenge of saving for a rainy day, you think, why not spend the money now when you can always make more later?

When faced with the challenge of working in a working environment, you may think, work is tedious and uninteresting. Why can’t I be doing something fun?

These sentiments can cause you to clash with other life paths that value structure. You prefer to live in the moment expecting everything to be okay to being burdened with responsibility. 

I understand that you may sometimes feel trapped in your office and might want the freedom to work from home. Here are some benefits of working from home that I’ve highlighted for your pleasure.

Conversely, like me, you may want to quit your job altogether and start the life you have always dreamed of but don’t know the next steps to take. You can follow these steps on how to find your passions and monetize them.

I had a very blocked throat chakra for a long time, but once I became aware of it I decided to heal it and not be scared of speaking my truth. 

I started a youtube channel and blog, despite all the negative voices in my head. And now people are surprised to hear I used to be the worst at communication and public speaking.
