Acknowledgements

I want to thank the primary source for the new Numerology concepts in this book, Pythagoras, also known as
The Father of Numerology. He asked me to write this book in 1980 promising to add his special input to my own
interpretation of numbers as they apply especially to the New Millennium. He also dictated the preface for this book.
Pythagoras first introduced himself during a channeling session facilitated by
Isabelle Zaccardi, Ph.D., who regards herself as a spiritual teacher and modern day
Pythagoras scribe for the Higher Essences (the Saints, Sages, and other luminaries). She resides
first introduced in San Rafael, California. Isabelle agreed to be the channel and my special consultant
himself during a for many hours of tape-recorded information sessions over the years. I have worked
with many individuals with varying degrees of psychic ability for about thirty years,
channeling session but in my opinion, there is no one on this planet who is better at communicating
facilitated by with the higher realms of consciousness and doing it with poise, dignity and humility.
Isabelle Zaccardi, myPythagoras has allowed me to write with him as well and each time I pick up
pen or use the computer keyboard the words flow so fast I can hardly keep up. I
Ph.D. am grateful to both of my mentors also for providing the creative energy that enabled
me to keep going with this project. There were many obstacles and delays along the
way, not to mention my own doubts about my ability to transform raw material into a form that would cause readers
to want to pursue the information in this book.
My thanks also go to my friend, June Gallo, for her encouragement and Pat Houston for her helpful comments on
my writing style, and for needling me from time to time about finishing this project.
My computer tutor/technician extraordinaire, Robert Leavitt, guided me through the many obstacles associated with
typing a manuscript on a computer whose instructions and language intimidated me constantly. He also was invaluable
when it came to graphics and special fonts. Just as important, he provided the feedback I needed constantly assuming
the role of the readers who would later evaluate this book.
When it was time for me to submit my manuscript for publishing review, I was fortunate to obtain the book editing
services of my good friend, Bruce Bailey. His television and film production experience, along with computer expertise,
made this final step a pleasurable one for me. He seemed to thrive on pressure and problem solving and had an uncanny
ability to anticipate my concerns. This is synchronicity in action!
Last but not least, I owe a debt of gratitude to all of the Numerologists whose books have given me valuable and
inspirational assistance for my learning process for many years, each one providing a special insight into the sacred
science of Numerology. My intention is to give something back by sharing the Pythagoras material with
Numerologists everywhere, in hopes that they can utilize it in their work as teachers. There are many new concepts in
this book that they, as professionals, will be able to view in greater depth. This book is intended as a learning tool and
a reference book for many years to come. This material is specifically written for the New Millennium.
I want to acknowledge the author who provided my first glimpse into the study of numerology. His little paperback
book literally tumbled off a store bookshelf into my arms, so I was forced to examine this intrusive literary object. For
some reason I was intrigued by the numerical equations, and the idea that a persons name could define his or her
personality, meaning, and purpose. He did not waste words making a point, and he wrote with a cadence that appealed
to me. Richard De Amorelli was his name, and the book was entitled Numerology, the Key to Your Inner Self.
Florence Campbell was my next find. Your Days Are Numbered was the title. Again, the simplicity of the presentation
appealed to me, and yet the material was broader and deeper in scope. She described her book as a manual of

vii
viii N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Numerology for everybody. It remains a valued reference source for me. There are a handful of books in my collection
that have a rubber band around them because of wear and tear, and this is one of them.
Next came the book that I really devoured from beginning to end. It was Dr. Juno Jordans Numerology, the Romance
in Your Name. To this day, it is my favorite book on numerology. I regret that I did not meet her before her passing
during the latter part of the 1980s. She delved very deeply into the meaning and interpretation of numbers, and was
obviously receiving her information from the Higher Realms. Im sure Pythagoras knew her well.
Dr. Jordan gave credit to her mother, Dr. Julia Seton, for teaching her the basics of Numerology. I have a copy of
her Symbols of Numerology. She was born in 1862 and made her transition in 1950. Her eloquence was backed up with
deep understanding of the science and spirituality of numbers. Dr. Jordan also credits her with with giving the word
Numerology broad and popular acceptance during her time. Dr. Jordan also credited Mrs. L. Dow Balliet as the
authority for the modern method of relating names, numbers, and vibrations, and for giving the world a spiritual and
practical system of applying numerical symbols to the analysis of character. I have one of her earlier books entitled
Vibration, published in 1913. Containing only eighty-one pages, it is written in a simple and practical style. Mrs. L.
Dow Balliet was the pioneer of pioneers in Numerology.
When modern Numerologists are asked how they got started, the source often goes back to the above three ladies.
Dr. Jordan took the earlier studies to a new level the hard way, by testing the accuracy of numerical interpretation over
a period of 25 years, with the help of a group of teachers, students, and co-workers. She organized the California
Institute of Numerical Research, Inc. The legacy of this trio is one of inspiration.
In Number Power by Colin Baker, the numbers presented are accompanied by many beautiful color illustrations of
people and nature, so the reader can appreciate more fully the natural and social worlds in which we live. Mr. Baker
uniquely portrays numbers as both marking and explaining a journey from 1 to 9, and each number is examined
thoroughly. Again, the artwork enhances the numbers. His intuitive abilities are evident in the unique way he explains
the deeper meanings of the numbers, helping people to understand the fact that we are all born with numeric influences,
as shown in the name and birth-date, rather than acquiring all of them as we develop. I was particularly impressed with
Colin Bakers chapters on numbers in society, nature, and music, providing the reader with a greater knowledge and
appreciation of the world in which we live, and a closer rapport with all created things. Number Power is a visual as well
as mental journey and adventure, and is obviously designed for people of all ages and levels of understanding, including
the professional Numerologist.
Finally, Id like to thank an author of a different sort: Bonnie Coleen, who is the author (as in, creator, producer
and host) of a lively personal growth talk-radio program called Seeing Beyond on KEST in San Francisco. I knew
instinctively when I met her that Bonnie and I have impacted each other in several past lives. In this lifetime, I feel
special gratitude for the help, guidance and friendship shes contributed to my lifes work. Her supportive energies have
helped fuel the current explosion in popularity of that ancient tool for self-empowerment (which our age is only now
re-discovering): Numerology.

Introduction

Realizing that numbers are the nine creative energy forces in your name allows you to truly feel that you are at one
with Gods Geometry, in harmony with all of creation. Then by adding the numbers of your birth-date, the equation
is complete. The secret of understanding how to use the power of numbers is knowing which aspect or application of
a number to draw upon at any given time.
Each number has many related meanings or uses. There is a numerical energy force
available to deal with all of your needs. Those energy forces are present in every letter
of our alphabet and all numbers, which reduce to a single number from 1 to 9. We will

of the numbers and letters attracts unique magnetic energies. While each number is a capable of
power unto itself, it is the combination of the nine basic numbers working together
that is responsible for successful outcomes.

energy before emerging as a complete expression from our brain, the ultimate
computer. There are no insignificant numbers. All numbers have meaning and affect
us all individually. Many concepts presented here regarding numbers and energy are new, unique, and hopefully thought
provoking. Their origin is more ancient than we have recorded history but Pythagoras gave them special meaning
and interpretation.
This book is intended to be reader-friendly, focusing on unique ways of learning the basic meaning of the numbers
as an enjoyable prerequisite for constructing the chart, which follows in chapter nine. It is for people of all ages and for
beginners as well as those with advanced understanding. Simplicity is the key word here. I have kept numerical
equations and exercises to a minimum, especially the Numerology Chart with only twelve elements and large,
understandable graphics throughout the book.
Numbers are energy forces capable of causing positive changes in our lives. You will see how nine numbers are the
basic cause and effect of all activity, whether in our lives or in the Cosmos! The memory techniques in chapter six, The
Meaning of The Numbers, include easy and fun exercises that can be done quickly. In just nine days you can do your
own chart (family and friends too). Being well grounded in number meanings is the key, for it will motivate you to
pursue the study of numbers, thereby attaining a deeper understanding of them.
You are the architect of your name and the life-plan contained within your name and birth-date: your Life Script.
You are also the architect of your physical body. You chose precisely the proper vehicle to carry you through the life
experiences you needed to accommodate your personal growth. Furthermore, you even chose the family you needed to
be born into and yes, the various personal relationships culminating in a commitment to a life partner. This took a lot
of planning and a lot of give-and-take because family and friends had agendas of their own to fulfill.
We will cover this subject more in chapter nine where it is the final element of my basic Numerology Chart. It is
called the Progression Chart. It plays out the letters of your full name on three levels like scenes from a movie script.
Each letter influences the events in your life in a unique way for a period of one to nine years and affects those events
in any one of nine different ways. Your first, middle and last name letters have a corresponding physical, emotional and
spiritual significance.
The Progression Chart is the only aspect of your chart that allows you to view the past, present and future
represented by your name letters. We are talking here about different types of influences in terms of types of events only,
not absolute happenings. I believe that only God knows the future absolutely. Numerology is not a fortune-telling

but with certain limitations.
The material in this book sheds new light on Numerology for the New Millennium,
providing a new perspective on understanding the numbers and clear, simple methods

A special feature you will enjoy is a chapter on Numerology for Animals. It is a
fascinating look into their numbers and their relationship to humans. It explains their
role as special teachers and emissaries of love.
Finally, this book would not be complete without a chapter on the life and teachings of the man who inspired this
book in 1980 and dictated much of the material through many channeling sessions: Pythagoras. These sessions
provided new revelations about Pythagoras the man, and in his own style of speech. He emphasized that
Numerology is more than the study of numbers; it is a personal insight as to who you really are with the clues provided
by the numbers. The subject matter Pythagoras has provided is profound yet clear, intended to raise your spirits
along with your understanding of the numbers.
If your life could use a little magic right now, you need look no further than your name for it is truly magical!
Preface

When Pythagoras first asked me to write this book, I asked if he would provide the preface. To my surprise, he
said yes and immediately dictated the material word for word. I knew an adventure had begun but did not realize how
many years it would take to complete the project. There were many unexpected events in my personal life that caused
delays and I now have a better understanding of the meaning of the phrase, all in good time. Also, I had a great deal
of studying and contemplating to do over the years.
Understanding the true meaning of numbers is not a memory achievement. It is a spiritual quest and it never ends.
The more I learn about Numerology, the more I realize there is always something else to learn.
Beware: this subject is habit forming!

Pythagoras, October 7, 1980:


The reason for a new and simplified concept of Numerology and Tarot is evidenced by the change of all esoteric
teachings. A far clearer and simpler method of deduction is given now, so that waste years of the past can be abolished,
for the teachings are more powerful, more poignant and more direct than at any time in recorded history.
Man and his consciousness have reached an elevated plateau that allows this to be. Thus, with concentrated energies
and concentrated knowledge being directed to man, many shortcuts have been made available; shortcuts only in that
the presentation is received and then must be put to work. It is far better to disregard the processes that have been taught
in the past, and yes, shall the theories that have been a part of the knowledge received be as a plot of ground that has
been prepared for planting.
And let the seeds that are the thoughts and the energy fall into prepared soil, so that proper guidance and nurturing
can take place. When the bed of seedlings is showing growth, then as a good gardener of the universe, thinning must
take place for this is evaluation time, so that in each individual only the strong and healthy seedlings, or thought forms,
will be kept.
Only seedlings that are compatible with the nature of that person should be kept and then be
nurtured throughout the growing stages. The Tarot and Numerology are sacred works to be used
B eware: as symbolic guidelines to establish the path that now is being traveled upon with greater fervor.

forming! The Tarot and Numerology symbols will change and they will work together in harmony for
the new cycle of man, for this coming age of man will need many signposts clearly marked so
that the way will be sure-footed. It is past time for excuses and ignorance. It is time for man to
exhibit his ingenuity and use the tools that are given him, creatively and with dexterity. Man is multi-faceted and multi-
dimensional and it is time that he recognizes this, so that which is placed in this volume will bring questions and
contemplation aplenty. It begs for just the opportunity to allow the questions and the answers to be given.

A Word About Words
Used In This Book

Perhaps the most unusual part of this books design is an attempt to use numbers only when they pertain to the basic
numerological digits of 1 through 9. For example, instead of 20th Century the text might refer to the Twentieth
Century. Exceptions are page numbers and dates, as it would have been too cumbersome and confusing to replace these
numbers with words. The goal is for you to begin to view numbers in a different context. Instead of mere characters on
a page, their shapes can become a useful tool for your instinctive interpretation.
Also, in recent times there has been disagreement between men and women regarding the use of God versus
Father-God or Mother-God, and man versus woman. Some prefer the term Goddess. It is impossible to please
everyone. It is also difficult to constantly use the term person. We have all lived male and female lives as part of our
past-life experiences to gain balance between our masculine and feminine energies and we will continue to do so in
future lives.
When I use man in this book, it is a shortened version of hu-man, containing both masculine and feminine
characteristics. Man means the human spirit, not the physical body. Whenever possible I say individual or person
and I certainly acknowledge and respect the feminine aspect of God, or Mother-God, so please forgive me if I offend
anyone.
I use the same words as my communicators doPythagoras and all the Saints and Sages that I have conversed
with over the past twenty-five years. I dont know when the term God was first used on this planet but I am told that
it was not His idea in the first place. He prefers a fatherly reference and the other spiritual beings I have communicated
with over the years refer to God as the Father.
In a channeled conversation with Pythagoras on February 20, 2002, I asked Pythagoras for his views on this
subject. He stated that the use of the term He was used a great deal during the early days of the church when women
were not allowed in the sanctuary of the church. Therefore, the word He was most appropriate at that time.
Pythagoras further stated that God is the Supreme Energy and that to try to describe that energy is impossible.
He does denote a masculine energy associated with strength and administration and those characteristics certainly
apply to Gods position as the Supreme Energy in charge of all that was ever created and all that will ever be created in
the cosmos.
The feminine aspect of God is the mothering aspect that is there just as much as the masculine aspect. That is where
the terms Father-God and Mother-God come into play. On this level, women have finally been accorded some of
the recognition, respect and dignity they deserve but the human race still has a long way to go to begin to balance the
scales of equality.
Women have to develop their dormant masculine energies in order to compete in a mans world, but that does not
diminish the fact that they are women. Similarly, men need to express their feminine energies and that is a difficult
transition in a society where macho behavior has dominated cultures for so long. Women have every right to strive for
and hold those job classifications that have been mens domain throughout recorded history. They are limited at times
by size and strength constraints, but that is all.

The New Millennium has brought closure


to outdated social customs.

Changes have arrived and will continue to arrive throughout this centuryall designed to bring equality issues to
the forefront of every culture, race, and religion. Androgynous is the word for those advanced spiritual beings in the
higher realmsa perfect blend of masculine and feminine energies.
On this level, we strive to maintain a proper balance between the two energies and alternating male and female lives,
as needed, helps to accomplish this condition. There is no discrimination in the higher realms and souls advance on
merit only. It is obvious that we still have a long way to go on this level.
A Word About Concepts
Used In This Book

The information contained in this book relating to numbers as an energy form, energy in general, and all other
concepts, are not presented as absolute proven facts though they represent my personal beliefs expressed in my own
words. Exploration always precedes conclusion and this book reflects my personal journey in this life and the
conclusions I have reached along the way.
My beliefs are the result of my own curiosity about life itself, a curiosity that started with the basic question about
the existence of God. Then the scope widened to life after death, the existence of heaven and hell, and communication
between this earthly reality and those souls in heaven. I read books, talked to people, visited psychics, and watched
television shows and documentaries about all of the above. The idea occurred to me that I could at least get a quick
answer to some of my questions by asking psychics about them. Then I could assess the answers and decide for myself
what to do about them.
I compared the vocabularies of psychics to see if there was a common denominator and discovered there were many,
both good and bad. The bad qualities were things like poor articulation, evasive or vague answers, generalities rather
than specific information, and praise for my psychic abilities. Spirituality and self-responsibility were not discussed.
A good psychic is much more evolved spiritually and tells it like it is rather than what you want to hear. A really good
psychic does not have an ego problem and focuses on helping you to make your own decisions as much as possible. He
or she helps you with personal growth issues and never makes negative predictions. I personally believe there are a fair
number of good psychics out there, but in my experience over some thirty-five years, there are not many that I would
rate as exceptional. This subject is explored more following chapter eighteen, in a section called Channeling
Explained. I felt it necessary to explain more about psychic ability as a research tool and how I found and qualified
someone who was exceptional, very spiritual and also very credible. Isabelle Zaccardi was that person. She opened the
door to the Higher Realms and also introduced me to Pythagoras who asked me to write this book.
Spiritual and scientific exploration begins with a hypothesis followed by the gathering of evidence that supports or
falsifies that hypothesis. If the world waited for an absolute scientific consensus for all the concepts that are on hold at
any given time, mankind would never make any real progress in any area of our existence. Someone once gave me some
good advice to help me get off the dime and stop procrastinating. He said, Do something, even if its wrong.

Regarding the subject of faith or believing in something, I say,


Believe in something and be prepared to change or drop that
belief if something better comes along. That has been my
philosophy, because taking a negative attitude toward new concepts
simply pushes them away from your consciousness.
Faith does not mean blind acceptance. Real faith is born of a certain knowingness together with confidence in both
your own reasoning and intuitive processes. I believe that faith is also a reflection of the divinity we share as children of
God. It is a special gift that ennobles mankind, strengthening us and igniting the spark of creativity needed for our
growth.

A Philosophy for the Times Ahead
by Pythagoras: 19802006

[During one channeling session, I asked Pythagoras for a philosophy to live by today, given the chaotic conditions so
prevalent all over the world. Though this material was given in 1980, it may as well have been the year 2000.]

Pythagoras, October 23, 1980:


I would say, in a word, tolerance, for to be tolerant of ones neighbors and ones condition is to be tolerant of ones
own abilities and infirmities. Tolerance can give and receive understanding, clarity, and vision.
Those who choose to work closely with their own inner feelings can place themselves in a position to do a great
service for their fellow man. To be tolerant of ones own fellow beings is to place yourself not only in his shoes, but also
in his pattern of thought. Being able to do this would bring forth a greater tolerance of ones own self.
The crisis that is evident at this timeand in many ways is this crisis evidencedbrings its own form of resolution
depending on who is at the drawing table. But I would say not give up, rather be of good cheer and be grounded
in the thought and the theory that there is but a personal joy to be achieved, for each person contributes a great deal in
the combined energy field that brings about change.
And the crises that are on this planet are brought about to bring change. So when man cannot say this
wholeheartedly and with full consciousness, then and only then do events start to collect and as they collect, a greater
amount of tribulations and trials, fears and doubt all gather. Then these fearful processes bring about more, until we
have confrontation on many levels.
Moreover, when such as this happens, it takes a number of crises to shake man up. The world is not going to dissolve
or blow up but the lifestyle of everyone on the planet will change, and this must be. To what degree man consciously
will contribute is yet to be seen.
There are hard times in the future. There are shocking events to be. The tears of the masses will be needed to quell
the fires and the laughter will be needed to chase away the fears. But this is truly a time of jubilation for with each death
of an Age, as has been shown so many times in the past, each process that takes place allows a more creative force to
flow, more ingenuity to be expressed, more love to give and share, so that the rebuilding of the inner temple as well as
the external temple will be one of combined joy.
The days ahead will be both climactic and essential. They will give and receive time, consideration, and courage. The
days ahead can be dark or they can be bright depending on the individual, for have you not seen a child laughing
happily, living in a ghetto? Have you not seen a child who has more of everything than he can possibly see, and yet be
terribly unhappy? So you see, there are many sides to look atso many ways to bebut one must remember that
attitude and inspiration carries one through storms, violence, degradation, and exultation.

How the Numbers Work


2 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

How the Numbers Work

Numbers typify existence and are an integral part of God. The basic foundation of the power of numbers existed
before the creation of man. Numbers represent an energy field that is divided into nine categories, which are also nine
progressive stepsnine distinctive vibrationssymbolized by the numbers 1 through 9. Even a thought must go
through these nine progressive steps or energy changes before becoming a reality.
All activity in all universes is represented by these nine types of action. Any kind of activity you can think of contains
one or more of these numbers. It is that simple. When God created all the universes, He employed these nine progressive
steps of creation.
Everything exists because of vibration and we measure vibration by the use of numbers. Each number is a law unto
itself and each number causes a particular kind of action to take place. Each number has its own unique characteristics.
Being an integral part of God allows them to function as Gods Geometry and His tools of creation and
administration. They represent your numerical DNA!
We use numbers every day to represent quantities but more importantly,
they represent values or influences. We are constantly surrounded by
energies of all sorts and among them are the energies of the numbers 1
W e use numbers every
through 9. Like radio and television frequencies, we are not affected or
day to represent
influenced unless the proper channel is activated, and then the numerical quantities but more
energies are drawn to us like a magnet. Each day we go through varying importantly
types of experiences and emotions and they are each represented by a
number vibration. These vibrations are keyed to the letters and their they represent values or
numerical influences in your name and the numerical influences in your influences.
birth date and are necessary to accommodate change. Without change, there
is no progress in all universes, only inertia. Nothing in all creation stands
still.
Your name plays out these experiences in a particular order, each letter representing a period of time. Though we
have twenty-six letters in the English alphabet, they all come under the numbers 1 through 9, with double digits
reduced to single ones in the various columns.
Your birth date is the other factor influencing the type of experiences to be encountered throughout your life and is
another clue to your personality characteristics. A persons name, however, represents the most important influence
because it is more personal and relevant. It also determines your karma. It is your Life Script which you designed before
you incarnated to accommodate the lessons needed for this life.
On this level, you may wonder how or why some of your experiences could have been chosen ahead of time because
at this time, you would not deliberately do so, but you were in a non-physical state of existence where emotions did not
get in the way of your greater good. We cannot progress without challenging experiences.
Just as computers respond to a specific kind of input, the human brain reacts to numerical energies and acts
accordingly. That is, except when free will enters the picture and we decide not to respond and go in another direction.
But for the most part, we are not aware of the energies that influence us. Numerology gives us the advantage of knowing
about these energies in our name and birth date, thus allowing us to use them in a more positive way each day.
Numerology helps us to know who we are and where we are going in this life.
At the beginning of one taped session with Pythagoras, my first question was, Could you explain as precisely as
possible how the various numbers influence an individuals behavior, and also something about the origin of the
numerical influences? Secondly, could you comment on the process within the brain that triggers the responses, such as
the way in which the number 1 produces the concept of new beginnings or the way that the number 4 produces a desire
for order and form?

Pythagoras and Paul, July 12, 1983:


Pythagoras: The numbers 1 through 9 have existed since the beginning of time and are influenced by the
energy fields in all universes. That one subscribes to a particular area of the universein other words, where
Paul G. Minar 3

one comes fromand the energy comes to this level does influence his thought forms and how he uses the
energies of any given number. But also you asked, how does 1 become new beginnings? Because they are
trained to think of 1 as the beginning. This training began many existences ago. Whether it be a beginning
now or a beginning at another time, we think of 1 as a starting place. The same holds for all the numbers.
Paul: Would it be correct to say that a code for the numbers 1 to 9 is built into us even at the earliest moment
of creation and that these numbers simply allow it to be released?
Pythagoras: Indeed. Indeed that is true. It is a genetic code, if you want to call it genetic. It is a code that
is there, and it is ingrained, and yes, it is released from time to timenever in the consecutive order that man
thinks of as numbers, but as the need is brought forth for greater expansion and learning.

On August 29, 1996, Pythagoras had more to say about how the numbers work.
Paul: I have told my clients to first understand the meaning of the numbers 1 through 9 as a starting point
in Numerology. Is there a better way to say that there are nine basic ways for things to happen? I know thats
very simplistic but in reality thats the way I see it. There are nine divisions of energy.
Pythagoras: Thats right and you may call it nine steps of energy, or whatever, but thats exactly what it
is and must be looked at as an energy field that is divided into nine steps, each one bringing into its own self
what it needs to progress.
Paul: When a child is born, do the energies that it is going to be working with enter the crown chakra [located
at the top of the head] of that child to be imprinted on the brain?
Pythagoras: Not the crown. The energies enter at the medulla [base of the skull] then move to the central
nervous system.
Paul: What can you say that I can build on regarding that process whereby those nine numbers or energies
cause things to happen? As a part of that process, I know that our guides help on a day-to-day basis to
implement events. How do these energies cause an individual to respond?
Pythagoras: First, the energies are brought forth in accordance with the needs of that child, or that being.
Paul: Are these energies already surrounding the child or being?
Pythagoras: Oh yes, definitely.
Paul: So, they dont have to come from therea special beam of energy from outside this planet. They are
already here.
Pythagoras: Thats right.
Paul: So, the child or being draws these energies like a magnet.
Pythagoras: Thats right. Now, when other energies are brought in, they come from another central point
and they are brought in accordance with the needs of that individual as it progresses.
Paul: And from the universe the individual is from, or the home planet? So, these are additional energies and
the energies that they do not need are simply not absorbed?
Pythagoras: Thats right.
Paul: I see. Sort of like the clicker that turns on only the TV channel you want when you push the button.
Pythagoras: That is correct.

How the Numbers WorkThe Avenue of Numbers


by Pythagoras

Nearly a decade into our conversations Pythagoras, one day, provided an interesting commentary on numbers as
an energy form, how they work and how they influence our behavior. He also added insight into the real potential for
Numerology as a science.

Pythagoras, February 13, 1989:


I am Pythagoras, and I come to you through the Light of the Supreme Being, and through The Christ, Jesus. I
am of The LightI bring The LightI work in The Light.
The Light is a source of energy just as each sound, each color and each note is a source of energy. Together, these
energy patterns provide words, numbers, and vocal emissions that bring about change. The words are chosen carefully
so that each letter of each word carries a distinct message. This message is received on many levels of a persons
patterning and the vibrations thus set in motion, circumstances.
These circumstances are recognized more readily when they can be equated to numbers. Mathematics is a very special
tool that the Universe uses to relay its scientific data, its moral issues, and so on, and so on. So, I would say to you that
numbers and mathematics are the equation of Man needed for his progress. As Mans consciousness changes his
vibrations change and this vibratory level that is constantly changing responds to different numbers at different times,
and yet each numbers vibration changes also to accommodate and to facilitate growth.
There are many ways that one can assist Man and there are many ways available to assist, but Man has at times
refused to look at the many avenues open to him and chooses to travel on a select few avenues, and one of these is The
Avenue of Numbers. And though it seems removed from many, it is not, for every culture, in every timeframe, has had
its special numbers and these numbers can wake the mystical part of a person, the spiritual part, the Bright Light part,
and the dark side. But the more attuned one is to their higher essence, the more aware they are when a number that is
of a negative aspiration is brought forth. They are thus warned. They become uncomfortable, or they accept.

When a person experiences discomfort, either in hearing a word,


or a number, or a note, they should look deep within to seek why
that word was stroked. And thus, Numerology can become a very
specialized field, for it can and should embrace Psychology. This
partnership would bring greater assistance to those who seek to
know oneself, and to better oneself, and to heal oneself.

Creating Successful
Outcomes

Creating Successful OutcomesThe Tools

Chapter six explains the meanings of the numbers 1 through 9 plus the Master Numbers 11 through 55. Chapter
seven explains your Personal Day, Month, and Year numbers and how to calculate that formula so as to utilize the
positive aspects of each number. Chapter eight examines your birth-date numbers in a configuration known as The
Pythagorean Matrix. In chapter nine, we explore your birth name; this is where you construct the Numerology Chart,
the crowning achievement of all your study of the numbers.
Your birth name and birth date contain your personal profile: your innermost desires, your abilities and your life
path. That name is also played out like a movie script in an exercise called The Progression Chart. All the numbers
relate to you one way or another and all can be utilized to create successful outcomes. You are designed for success by
your Creator. That is the master plan for all human beings. We experience setbacks and delays along the way but we
will succeed eventually.
Always remember there are no bad numbers, only challenging aspects of each number. Keep fear, impatience and
frustration out of your personal quests. Your positive attitude can make the difference between success and failure. An
affirmation from the book The Gift of Tranquility, by Isabelle Zaccardi says it well, Tranquil and serene must I be, to
allow all that is mine to come to me.

Do I Deserve It? Do I really deserve what I am asking for?

Am I taking something for granted? A rational person would not ask for a raise or promotion without some
preparation, making sure he or she qualifies for that advancement. There are numerical influences that can help you
achieve any goal, but only if you are in harmony with them. So, make the necessary adjustments, and change the
condition, or conditions, that are blocking your success. You wouldnt expect your car to provide you with a trouble-
free trip without a tune-up, and your personal vehicle is no different. Life teaches us the world does not owe us a living,
and the universe does not owe us success. Needs vs. Desires. We have to distinguish between our needs and our desires.
Needs have first priority, but even needs require a second look sometimes, for not every perceived need is for our greater
good. We dont have the overview our Creator and His special helpers possess. The following paragraph describes our
unseen helpers, how they function, and how they help us every day.
Looking back, we can all remember situations where our needs were not fulfilled, and were
relieved that they were not. Sometimes we have to let matters unfold by themselves. I know of
a man who was denied a surgical procedure that would have removed his trachea and his S ometimes
ability to speak because of a dispute regarding his medical coverage at the time. After finding we have to
out he was eligible for veterans medical benefits he was sent to their doctors for evaluation.
Consequently, new technology was used in a surgical procedure that saved his trachea and
let matters
restored his speech, laying the groundwork for other individuals to share the same resultthe unfold by
gift of speech restoration. So, dont be discouraged because you experience rejection in life, themselves.
because something better may be waiting for you. Desires, hopes, and dreams, are important
too, because they are the foundation of future success.

Unseen Helpers? God has provided assistance for us


to achieve our goals, to see our dreams fulfilled.
That assistance comes in several categories.

1. Higher Self

You are always directed by your higher self, which is your highest essencean accumulation of all the facets of your
total being. Each of your incarnations produced a wealth of knowledge resulting from life experiences. The sum total
of that knowledge is your higher self. You know that in this one lifetime you are a product of all your experiences, so
Paul G. Minar 7

imagine the magnitude of many life experiences. That explains all the hunches and other intuitive decisions you have
made. Your subconscious houses this vast storehouse of knowledge, and we tap into it all the time. All of the
collaborative efforts between you and your guides are always accompanied by your higher self.

2. Guides

We all have three guides, who are assigned to us before we incarnate. While I say assigned, we chose them and they
chose us. It was a mutual agreement. They are friends from past life experiences. We may have even been guides for
them at one time. They each have special skills, which coincide with and enhance our own. They are committed to
being literally at our side every moment of every day.

Our main guide is positioned directly behind us.

The other two flank us on both sides. They are minutely involved in our daily strategies, just as an intimate friend
would be. We confer with them nocturnally, reviewing the past days activities and planning the next day, and future
goals as well. Relationships dont get any closer than this.
Communicate with them in your meditations, or any time you wish, for that matter. Because of my friend Isabelles
channeling abilities, I know the names of my guides, and I communicate, by thought and words, often. We also have
special protective guidance in the form of a guardian angel. When we feel a presence in a room, it is generally one of
our friends. When you celebrate the outcome of a successful business deal, or a telephone negotiation with the IRS,
remember that you had some unseen help. Your mental skills were essential, but there was a collaborative effort involved.
For starters, ask in advance for help finding a parking place when you know they are a little scarce. You will be surprised
at the result. But always remember to ask well in advance of the need, and do say thank you.

3. Teachers

Our guides help us to hone our skills, but there are unseen specialists who come and go throughout our lives. Just
as we call on people with extraordinary skills, from time to time, other unseen specialists are sent to tutor us. They come
from the Higher Realms, that wondrous place known generally as Heaven.
In chapter eighteen, Reincarnation, I present a description of Heaven and what it is like to be there so I will not
take this subject any further at this time. If this sounds like God is providing us with an elaborate teaching program, it
is just that. This is the ultimate scholarship program. The more we grow as human beings, the more tutoring assistance
we receive.
In a nutshell, this is life everlasting. Perhaps this is Gods way of protecting His
investment, by insuring that all of His creative efforts were not in vain. Big corporations
on this planet do it all the time but our Creator simply takes it to another level.
I n a nutshell,
this is life
4. Visualization everlasting.
It really works. As Pythagoras said, When you think to something, and you think
to it a great deal, you start to change the properties of that object mentally, and then it can automatically become not
only mental, but physical. That is the principle of visualization and the beginning of manifestation.
Our thoughts take on an etheric form in the fourth dimension, and can become physical realities on this level, if we
visualize strongly and consistently. This is a basic principle of creation. Everything in Gods creation began with a
thought, the most powerful force in the universe, and everything has an etheric prototype.
8 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Do this visualization several times each day, thinking about every aspect of the thing desiredthe form, color,
everything about itand picture it already in your possession. The pattern will become stronger and stronger. If its a
career, visualize your requirements, including the salary you want and for whom you want to work. If you want your
own business, use the same principles of visualization. Athletes use visualization to create the perfect pattern by
visualizing precisely how they will move their body. Then they execute it. Try it.

5. Meditation

You can also use meditation to assist visualization, by bringing the number into your Third Eye (the pineal and
pituitary glands of the brain) together with the particular aspect or aspects of the number you want to focus on.
Picture the number situated between the pineal and pituitary glands and leave it there for a few minutes. The number
I speak of can be any number helpful to your success, whether it is a part of your personal Numerology Chart, or
perhaps a Personal Year, Personal Month, or Personal Day. (Personal Days are based on your birth-date, and will be
covered in chapter seven.)
Start with the meaning of numbers in chapter six. In chapter nine, we will cover your Numerology Chart. The Chart
covers the Life Path number which deals with the type of events you are likely to experience throughout your lifetime.
I say likely because that number can change, depending on your free will and a need for the change.
There is a number that pretty well denotes your abilities and it is involved with your vowels and consonants. That
part of the chart has surprises galore for us all. All the numbers represent powerful and helpful energies, so why ignore
them? Being at one with the numbers means being at one with Gods geometry, in harmony with your own numbers
and all they represent.
So, set aside some quiet time each day, and meditate on the number or numbers that represent something you need
or want. Visualize the desired result at the same time each day. Daily practice creates the patterns you need for success.

6. Patience

No cooking recipe would produce the desired outcome without a goodly amount of patience. You cant hurry success.
When you want a successful outcome for any endeavor, it is the most important ingredient of all. I have received many
words of counsel over the years from my unseen spiritual advisors, but this one has had the greatest impact on me. It
has been the greatest lesson of all, and I pass it on to you at this time. Study the number 2, because it is all about
patience. This is a very special quickening ingredient to any worthwhile plan or project. Instead of dreading this word,
embrace it because it is the greatest friend you will ever have.

7. Divine Providence

I am listing this as a tool but it is one that is out of our hands. It comes from God. It is a form of assistance we have
all experienced in many ways, and more often than not, is something of a surprise.
A few years ago, I contracted a very serious staph infection as a result of a cut on my skin. Three days went by and
I experienced no symptoms, though the infection was raging inside my body. This type of infection can cause death
within a few days if not detected and treated quickly. My vulnerable respiratory system was a prime target. As luck
would have it, I tore the rotator cuff on my shoulder while trying to lift a window that was stuck. Within hours, I began
to experience excruciating pain in that area and went to the emergency room of the closest hospital. X-rays showed the
torn rotator cuff, but I had to wait over the weekend for an appointment with my doctor. He noticed the inflamed area
and ordered a blood test. Within hours, I was rushed to the hospital and given constant antibiotics.
This series of events was Divine Providence at work. Without tearing my rotator cuff, I may well have died, but that
painful incident provided a reason for the medical attention so needed at the time. I used the word luck facetiously,
but this was not an accidental happening. God really does work in mysterious ways.
Paul G. Minar 9

8. Love

Put more than a little love in your hearts desires. I dont know how or where the word originated on this planet, but
my channeled information from the Higher Realms is that in Gods Cosmos love is not limited to the various emotions
we are familiar with.

In all universes, love is a creative force in itself.


Love is employed by God constantly to accomplish all creative projects. We say that everything begins with a thought
and that is true. But remember, God is Thought Incarnate and we are the end result of a Thought of God
Unfortunately, our powers of thought are a far cry from those of our Creator. We use the expression God is love
in our spiritual discourses and that is a truer and more profound statement than I can possibly explain. Whether or not
you are comfortable with an expanded meaning of love does not matter. But try to accept the concept that love is
responsible for any kind of successful endeavor. People who love their work or projects are more successful. People who
come together out of love have more meaningful and lasting relationships. So, try adding a good measure of love to
your everyday activities. What have you got to lose?

9. Faith

All the tools in the world are useless if you dont have faith in yourself. As I have said before, you are not alone, not
for a moment. Instead of thinking of yourself as a solitary traveler in this life, think of yourself as part of a magnificent
collaborative arrangement.
We cant see our unseen helpers, but they are always present. They are the family that many of us yearn for. Your
higher self, guides and teachers are there for the asking. The techniques of visualization and meditation are invaluable
when used often. Patience is a virtue that needs lots of practice, but, along with faith in yourself, it is essential for
success. Divine Providence is a special kind of bonus that arrives when we least expect it. It is also known as the grace
of God. All of these tools are involved with numbers, because they are all forms of action, and each number represents
a particular type of energy in action. As I mentioned in chapter one, How the Numbers Work, they typify existence,
and represent Gods Geometry in action. They represent an energy field that is divided into nine categories, or
vibrations, symbolized by the numbers one through nine. These numbers are living and active energies and they
function in all universes. Being an integral part of God is the key to their power, for they are a law unto themselves.
When God created all the universes, He did so in nine steps, progressively employing the numbers 1 through 9. A
thought form goes through these nine steps, or energy changes, before it is born, as does a fetus. As children of God,
created out of His energy, we can utilize the same creative principles every day of our lives. It is our true birthright.

Embrace the numbers for the friends they are.


You will soon find that the kind of successful outcomes that have eluded you in the past are now a normal part of
your life, instead of things wished for and dreamed about. Love yourself for the child of God you are. Love your name
and love your birth-date, for they contain your unique life script, your personal blueprint for success. The bottom line
is this: if you use all the tools available to you, you will discover more than success in achieving your goals. You will
discover your place and your purpose as a unique part of Gods plan of creation. By fulfilling your commitment to be
all that your name allows you to be, you will also find the inner strength to survive disappointment, pain or loss of any
kind. If you can get up each day and find beauty and goodness in life, for the sake of loving and being a part of life, no
matter what situation causes you distress, then you will have passed lifes greatest test, and that is mastery over diversity.

A Personal Observation
on the
New Millennium
12 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

A Personal Observation on the New Millennium

The New Millennium ushered in new energies for the planet, energies to facilitate change. These are energies that
have never been here before. This is why so many souls have chosen to incarnate on this planet at this time. You may
wonder why anyone would want to participate in such a chaotic world, but great strides in spiritual growth are made
under times of great adversity and suffering. These souls have volunteered to help bring about change in the world, and
the New Millennium energies are designed to accommodate and accelerate change.
While these special energies are designed to assist the human condition, they cannot resolve all the challenges
associated with it. (I prefer to use the word challenges rather than problems, as challenges are a necessary part of
development and progress.) Free will and the choices we make with it determine the type and extent of lifes challenges.
I do find some consolation in the fact that we are a young country, and this is a relatively young planet. It does help
to put things in perspective, and if you believe in reincarnation, as I do, you know that our Creator has provided ample
time through countless existences to experience everything necessary for our growth.
Life is all about a variety of experiences, some good and some not so good. Life is also about working toward
achieving balance in all aspects of our lives. As Pythagoras has said, Change is progress, and progress is change. No
matter how traumatic some of the New Millennium events have been, we are, as individuals, countries, and as a planet,
making progress. I choose to err on the side of hope and faith, and to be the eternal optimist. I believe it is very
important for us to keep our emotions under control at this time, and indeed, at all times.
It is encouraging to observe that spiritual leaders around the world are opening up a dialogue that addresses the
differences between Eastern and Western philosophies. They are seeking common ground and an arena that could
provide an ongoing exchange of constructive ideas for ideological peace, which is where global peace begins.
A close look at the history of any country will show grievous errors, criminal acts and unspeakable crimes. Every
nation has violated its own avowed principles at some time or other. It has
been said that more violence has been perpetrated in the name of God than
any nation or people. Hostility and violence keep popping up around the R egardless of our
world like eruptions of fire, and just when one is extinguished, another
flares up. In the United States, there is great disagreement in the area of
individual spiritual

alternative to peace.
Regardless of our individual spiritual beliefs, we can all have the same
hope and the same faith in the worth of mankind. I believe the greatest resource in the world is the fact that each of us,
without exception, carries a spark of our Creators Divinity, This is the basis for maintaining a belief in the ultimate
survival of the planet. The God of wisdom and benevolence I believe in would never allow the destruction of a planet
that was the crown jewel in His master plan of creationthe last brush stroke on that vast canvas known as the cosmos.
Stress has always been a part of human existence. In primitive times, people were concerned with surviving attacks by
wild beasts and club-wielding enemies. However, they were spared from knowing about suffering and stressful
conditions in other parts of the world. Their fears were limited to happenings in a very small part of the globe.
Technology has brought tragedy and chaos into the living room, and onto the front pages of the daily newspaper.
Progress is truly a relative word.
One of the key words that represent life today is expectations. There was a time when people throughout the world
had very little to hope for because they were born into a caste system, versions of which still exist in some parts of the
world. They could not envy what they could not see on national television or in the movies. Their frustration and stress
were real, and so was their deprivation.
Today, people have varying degrees of hope for the first time, and cannot deal with the instant success stories of
others more fortunate. As a result, many turn to crime and violence as an outlet for their frustrations. The real war
Paul G. Minar 13

should be fought to eliminate hunger, poverty, ignorance and the desperation and chaos that invariably result for the
disadvantaged people of the world.
Even though reincarnation ensures that we all experience the best and worst of life, this is very little consolation to
those who are suffering now. Success used to be the end result of a relatively lengthy process involving hard work and
pride in a particular craft, occupation or career, and was not necessarily associated with great financial gain.
As a prerequisite to success, personal beauty and other physical attributes have become requirements, also. Speed is
important now. One must reach goals quickly, starting a career or endeavor at the top rung, with incredible financial
rewards. We are living in a me era, where its acceptable to cut in front of someone else, whether its a career, a line in
the supermarket or on the highway. Speed and carelessness on the streets and highways cause many fatalities each year.

The energies of the New Millennium are also designed


to cause people to slow the pace of living today
to stop and thinkto contemplate.
The dictionary describes contemplation as to view with sustained attention. It also describes a state of mystical
awareness of Gods being or presence. The energies of the New Millennium, as Pythagoras has stated, are designed
to help us to place ourselves not only in the shoes of our fellow beings, but also in their pattern of thought. I believe
there is too much focus on personal success today, and that is not to take away the need for individual efforts to succeed,
for that is what life is really all about.
But there is plenty of room for us to help others along the way. The people of the world are growing closer
geographically, but not necessarily ideologically. Countries absorb new cultures and belief systems, but do not spend the
time and resources to educate their citizens regarding the rich history, nature, and character of these cultures and belief
systems. Conversely, those now being absorbed, and those who have been absorbed for many years, have not been
adequately educated regarding the host country.

We have to learn to live together,


if we are to survive as a global community.
We have to have a greater understanding of what individual and global values are all about, and respect for
individual, cultural, political, national, religious or spiritual differences must be accepted by all parties concerned.
Life is all about seeking the truth always, with an open mind and an open heart. By responding to the needs of our
fellow beings, we are acknowledging the oneness of life. Contemplation allows us to reflect on our personal blessings,
and to discover our unique abilities so we can share them with all of humanity.
September 11, 2001. This date, and these numbers, will never be forgotten. As traumatic
as the events of that date were, let us hope that the planets inhabitants will work together
S eptember 11, and turn a negative event into a positive outcome, so that these acts of violence will never
2001 occur again in this country or in the world. Certainly, vigilance, and being prepared for
fearful happenings, will now be part of our everyday existence, but we can and will adjust.
It will require a great effort by everyone affected by this event, and everyone who might be
affected in the future, to find a lasting solution to a situation involving violent behavior, rationalized by misguided
religious fervor.
If a more lasting peace should result, and if weapons of mass destruction can be put aside forever, then perhaps the
tragedies of September 11th, and any subsequent acts of violence will be remembered as a positive turning point in
history, one in which people became united in purpose rather than divided by fear.
It is unfortunate that any religious belief system should be used as a justification for violence and war, and that any
individual, religion, culture, or country should claim a benevolent God as solely theirs. But both of these concepts have
been used throughout history to attempt to achieve goals that many truly believed were noble ones. Modern technology
has brought people closer in terms of geographic location, but we remain separated a great distance by ignorance, greed,
fear and intolerance.
14 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Lets look at the numbers represented by this tragic date in history. The Universal Year numerical influence (the total
arrived at by adding the 9 of September plus the 11 day, and the 3 of 2001) is 5. The 5 represents change and freedom,
as applied to this date. It is adaptability and cleverness. It is resilience and resourcefulness. These are positive and
beneficial characteristics when used to help mankind but, as with all numbers, there is a negative side with negative
results when we choose to go in that direction.
September is the ninth month of the year and that means selflessness and
benevolence. It is integrity and spirituality. It also involves humanitarianism and
W e saw both completion.
positive and The 11th of September was a 2 day, reflecting cooperation and harmony. It also
included agreement and diplomacy, as well as compassion and peacemaking qualities.
negative aspects The 11 day represents a Master Number (a special number associated with teaching and
expressed. serving others). 11 reduces to 2, the number of friendship and agreement, diplomacy and
harmony. Further, it represents patience and partnerships. We saw both positive and
negative aspects expressed.
September of 2001 was indeed a month of finality, as represented by the 9. The forces of aggression finally carried
out plans that had been in the works for some time. It was also the end of an era of complacency for America and the
other countries of the free world.
But completion is always followed by a new beginningOctober is a 1 monthand that is the hope that fuels
determination in life. 2002 represents a 4 Universal Year number for the world, which meant foundation built on high
ideals and perseverance mixed with diligence, application, and acceptance of responsibility for the welfare of innocent
victims of this tragedy, and the consequences of a conflict that affects security and peace for the entire world.
The year 2003 added up to great changes throughout the planet. The kind of changes depends on the type of
foundation that was established in 2002. We are still feeling the economic effects of September 11. There is a great
difference of opinion as to how to resolve the economic situation. Corporate America wants more freedom to conduct
their business activities, free of the constraints of labor demands and environmental regulations. The 5 represents
change, freedom, and flexibility. It is the number of the communicator. It contains energies for great resiliency.
All the numbers work progressively from 1 to 9 to create successful outcomes but they are also interwoven, like a
great tapestry. The numbers all help each other. Where so many views, principles and demands are at stake, there has
to be room for compromise, through diplomacy and cooperation. The energies of the 2
are greatly needed to bring any kind of lasting resolution to the conflict that has become

all about harmony and healing. People who carry the 6 energies are needed to serve as
examples of this thing called brotherhood.
The conflicts of today have been brewing for decades, and are not going to be resolved as quickly as most of us wish.
Ultimately, the changes have to begin with each of us. We have to become more involved with the future needs and
concerns of our neighbors and our local communities. The catastrophes represented by events like the tsunami wave
and hurricanes Katrina and Rita brought everyone together, but too late.
2005 energies represent a year of introspection where the analytical aspect of the 7 comes into play. People want time
for themselves. Its a time of contemplation, meditation, and spirituality. It is the welcome pause that precedes the
materiality of the 8, represented by 2006, a year of energies associated with great power.
World peace needs the cooperation of the 2 and love of the 6 The United Nations was established to bring nations
together so disputes could be resolved peaceably. Like it or not, the peoples of the world are growing closer due to sheer
population numbers and the need to migrate or invest elsewhere. We now know what other people look like and how
they live. Its on the TV news, magazines and newspapers around the world. We need to be closer in mutual respect.
The year 2007 is a 9 year which signifies completion. The 9 brings some sort of closure to the years that began with
2000. The 9 is a Universal Number that demands attention to integrity and principles. It is a number of great creativity,
Paul G. Minar 15

compassion and harmony. It is the number of success through selflessness. It contains the energies of all the numbers
preceding it, and is the end result of all the decisions and actions that precede it.
Words like integrity, principles, compassion and harmony, have to be part of every day of every year in order to create
successful conclusions at any time. 2008 represents the Yin and Yang of this year with the peace aspect of the 2 and the
power of the 8. 2008 reduces to a 1, for new beginnings.
Regardless of what happens worldwide, human beings cannot prevent those changes associated with new beginnings,
but humanity can always acknowledge and honor them, thereby receiving the blessings of a new birth. When you reach
chapter six, The Meaning of the Numbers, you will have an opportunity to study all the tools that are available
through understanding the meaning of numbers. They will help you to understand who you really are, and they will
help you to understand the people around you. We are all different. We are all unique. We all have something to
contribute to create positive changes for peace.

Pythagoras Views the New Millennium

There are times during the question and answer sessions with Pythagoras when the dialogue doesnt flow as well
as you might expect. That is my fault because, while I always had questions prepared in advance of the channeling
sessions, I was in awe of this master of information and allowed myself to be distracted by some of his answers and was
not always prepared with a quick follow-up, and did not always go more in depth with my questions. I am getting
better, however.

Pythagoras and Paul, February 13, 1989:


[In this session I was concerned about how we were going to deal with the 0s in the year 2000 and so I started our
discussion in this manner:]
Paul: How do you read 2000? How do you say it? Two triple 0?
Pythagoras: Yes, two thousand.
Paul: Would it be the properties of the number 2 expressing with the triple cosmos?
Pythagoras: You would express it as you would express any geometric equationand you look askance at
me. Why?
Paul: Im not that familiar.
Pythagoras: Alright. Geometry in itself is a study of parciples. Now, the 0s, being the Cosmos in action,
allow the winds of change to fertilize the seeds sown by every other number. Now, you would take the 2 and
your three 0s, and see them as an adjusted cosmic apparition or, if you will, an esoteric equation that is, of
itself, a progression of great magnitude. It is leaving the previous century and in this case, the previous cycle,
so it is on a journey into a new vibration, a new cycle, a new century. The energies that are brought forth to
endow a new cycle have already been placed to that equation, and your reading of that number should be
more esoteric than physical because of the energies that have infiltrated that number.
Paul: At this moment in time, we have 1989. What is the significance of the 1, then the 9, then the 8, then
the 9 again, as opposed to, for example, 1999? Is the 8 breaking up a pattern?
Pythagoras: Yes, it is, and it is allowing growth. It is allowing change. It is the preparation of dropping of
all of the 1 and 9 numbers. It is a period of gestation.
Paul: So the sequence of numbers, whether its 1989, or 1993, or 1997, represents a mathematical process
that has meaning even though we are not aware of it on this level?
Pythagoras: Thats right.
Paul: In our last conversation, you said something very interesting about the new energies of this coming
millennium, and the fact that they would mainly affect individuals under the age of forty, and particularly
children. Could you explain that statement?
Pythagoras: Yes, I will explain it. The energies for the new Millenniumand I mean FOR the new
Millenniumare designed to help those forty years and younger, to help them cross the bridge that they need
to cross in their understanding, for they are going to have a great deal of information given to them very
quickly and they need to be able to sort it. The new energy for that particular group will allow them to benefit
most by this, at a time when they will need to comprehend who they are, what they are doing, and why they
are doing it. Now, as for the children, it will give the children the benefit of starting out ahead of their parents,
grandparents and great-grandparents in their emotional state and in their mental state. That is what these
energies really want to dohelp with the emotional and mental state.
Paul G. Minar 19

Paul: That is very helpful. Also, the New Millennium, while it starts out with the year 2000, to me, like a
birth-dateit really is the beginning of the 3.
Pythagoras: Thats right.
Paul: And it is the creative aspect we are really going to see in this New Millennium. And also, most people
I have talked to seem to associate the 3 with the arts, in terms of creativity, and I have thought more of the
need simply to do things better with creative thought, no matter what it is.
Pythagoras: Yes, using the simpler technologies.

Pythagoras mentioned that energies that are brought forth to endow a new cycle have already been placed. In a
recent conversation, he stated that the New Millennium energies were introduced around 1986. They didnt suddenly
arrive at the stroke of midnight of 2000.
These energies are the strongest the planet has experienced, for these times require them. Not everyone, however, is
prepared to handle them because of their attitude and emotional state. We have already seen people of all ages going off
the deep end one way or another, taking multiple lives violently, and many have taken their own lives because they could
not cope with these new energies.
Change is progress and progress is change. This is where Numerology contributes to the process, helping us
understand ourselves and the world around us. We must become involved in the various processes that sustain and
improve the quality of life for all the inhabitants of the planet and of course the planet and its environment as well.
In this book, it may seem I have gone beyond the scope of simply teaching Numerology, and I have. Numerology is
more than a study of numbers.

Numerology contains principles of Universal Law,


codes of behavior that cannot be altered to suit personal desires,
codes of behavior that have been constant and unaltered
since the creation of all universes.

The Subconscious
and Memory
22 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The Subconscious and Memory

In the Introduction portion of this book, I said that you would learn how to remember the meaning of the numbers
in a way that is not intimidating, so you can develop the confidence to do the numerical exercises, especially the chart.
You will find the process of remembering the meaning of the numbers will be much easier if you learn how to work
with your subconscious.
The subconscious is something we dont think about very much, but it is a necessary partner in all phases of memory
function. My information from the Higher Realms, and that includes Pythagoras, is that the subconscious is actually
a separate energy from the rest of our consciousness, and it is assigned to each of us at the moment of our creation. It
is like a twin who accompanies us throughout each life. We must be in control of our subconscious, but we must treat
it with love and respect, or it could become rebellious and uncooperative.
Each day as I work on Numerology Charts or exercises, I ask my subconscious for assistance, and thank it for helping
me during the day and also nocturnally, when I want to have productive and positive dreams. In this way, you can
actually sleep on situations that seem impossible to remedy during the day. You will be surprised at how often
inspirational ideas will come to your conscious mind.
All our past lives are stored in our memory banks and they are controlled by our
subconscious mind. The more often you study the numbers, the more proficient you will
become, and that should inspire you to work more consistently and thoughtfully.

when you least expect them. It will require a lifetime of study because the energies of the
numbers change according to the times. Right now, the energies are higher and stronger in
order to deal with the complex and fast-paced world we live in. So work with one of the most important tools God has
given youyour subconscious.you will master the numbers and retain the memory of each one and all of its
applications.
There are many worthwhile numerical exercises that are not included in this book and I gladly defer to other
Numerologists and their books. My primary purpose in this book is to focus on the importance of developing a deep
understanding of the meaning of each number. Any of the many exercises will be much simpler if you dont constantly
have to look up their meaning. Its a gradual process and there is no way to cram this subject. The meanings must
become second nature to youand they will, sooner than you realize.

The Meaning of the Numbers


24 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The Meaning of the Numbers0

Pythagoras has referred to the 0 as the cosmos in action, the cosmic gate of God, allowing the winds of change
to fertilize the seeds sown by every other number. In describing the year 2000, Pythagoras described this
configuration as an adjusted cosmic apparition or an esoteric equation that is, of itself, a progression of great magnitude
for it is leaving the previous century, and in this case, the previous cycle. It is on a journey into a new vibration, a new
cycle, a new century. The energies that are brought forth to endow a new cycle have already been placed to that
equation, and your reading of that number should be more esoteric than physical, because of the energies that have
infiltrated that number.
This information was given on February 13, 1989. I asked a simple question about how to read the year 2000 and
got a profound answer. On February 20, 2002, I met with Isabelle for a channeling session with Pythagoras, the first
one since 1996. Illness on the part of both Isabelle and me was the cause of this rather long interruption in our work.
It seems that we took turns with this sort of distraction.
I asked him how to interpret the two 0s in 2002, and if that year represented a very balanced equation because of
the two 2s on either end, containing the 0s.
He answered, Yes, it is the composite of many projects of The Father and they have reached a sense of completion,
even though, as you look at it with your human instinct and your eyes, you do not see that, but it is so. It is a time of
completion, and a time to prepare to move on.
I also asked Pythagoras to explain his comment about the 0 allowing the winds of change to fertilize the seeds
sown by every other number. I further asked if this meant that the energies of the 0 affect all the numbers around it,
allowing them to express themselves more effectively.
He answered, Yes. The 0 is much like your throwing a rock into a still pond of water. The disturbance affects
everything around it. It acts as a jump-start or quickening agent.
I then stated that it seemed many of the equations and concepts in Numerology are very esoteric, and that they really
require assistance and interpretation from beings like Pythagoras. He agreed and added that the word mystical
would be more appropriate than esoteric, mystical meaning that the concepts can be proven but not everyone is able
to prove them.
Pythagoras states that the 0 is not really a number. He refers to it as a fact. When you think of the 0, you might
think of it as nothing, or even something. Think of it as the end result. After completing the numbers 1 through
9, we reach 10, a very special number. It signifies the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. The one is given
special impetus by expressing itself with the quickening energies of the 0. Also, the letter O (a 15/6 value) is not a 0
and not a circle.
It is important to remember that the 0 is not the same as the circle. The circle is the symbol of the perfect man,
symbolizing mans completion. Usually the 0 is represented as having an oval shape, though it is sometimes printed with
the roundness of the circle. These are two distinctly different symbols and energies.
9 is the number of completion but it relates to completion of the mental and physical processes or happenings within
any given life experience. The circle represents the ultimate destination of all humanity, namely returning to the source,
the Supreme Being.
Paul G. Minar 25

The Meaning of the Numbers1 to 55

When you first look at the list of number meanings, or characteristics, they are intimidating. You probably think,
How can I possibly remember all of them? Well, dont feel bad, because I cant remember all of them either. I do
remember enough to do my work for the moment, but I also refer to the master list as well.
It takes time to grasp the meaning of so many adjectives, so relax and enjoy what youre doing. The easiest way to
remember the number meanings is to practice working with them as often as possible. Its like developing a good
vocabulary. You practice a few words every day and at the end of the year, you have added that many words to your
memory bank.
Earlier, Pythagoras stated, attitude and inspiration carries one through storms, violence, degradation, and
exultation. Having the proper attitude allows inspiration to enter your learning process. When you really put your
energy into working with numbers, your higher self provides you with information. The higher self is an accumulation
of what you have learned throughout all your lifetimes, and your subconscious helps you draw on this reservoir of
information.
In addition to attitude and inspiration, add proper motivation and you will find a passion for learning about the
numbers. If you are seeking a mundane result, you will not be able to produce an interpretation of the numbers that
has any real depth or meaning. This is why Numerology is called the Sacred Science of Numbers. Passion for numbers
means a love for numbers. When a client tells me that he or she does not agree with my interpretation of their numbers,
it means they dont want to deal with answers that require self-assessment or responsibility. The truth is not always easy
to deal with, but accepting it is the only way to progress in life.
The number characteristics listed next to each number are just a few examples to work
with, so be prepared to add more to your list as you progress. The new meanings will come

of everything. Each day you will be working with a different number or combination of two numbers,
which reduce to a single number from 1 to 9. The only exceptions to the reduction of
numbers to a single digit are the Master Numbers: 11, 22, 33 and 44. Consult the following
pages for their meaning and application. Also, dont get too excited or concerned about these Master Numbers. They
are an indication of special energies you have or aspire to, or they add to your accomplishments as a teacher or one who
can assist others by your example. They do not necessarily acknowledge extra special status to the person bearing that
name.
Just read the number and move on. As you become more familiar with the numbers in your name and birth date,
you will intuitively discover things about yourself. You will also be able to evaluate those with whom you interrelate.
But start with yourself and never intrude on another persons privacy by show and tell Numerology readings.
I am devoting more time and space describing the number 1 because it is so special. It is, after all, the beginning of
everything.
26 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

On October 23, 1980, Pythagoras described this special number in this way:

Sacred number 1 was the beginning of a new trend of thought, adding and embellishing the life force as needed.
Depending on what alphabet you were using, did we begin with the geographical aspect, but simply stating 1 is the use
of ones own vehicle to start a process of divination on this planet.
1 indicated the use of the intellect to produce a means of acquiring skills to be used in the procession of a return to
ones higher essence. Number 1 is the beginning of a climb, and each lifetime is a climb. So, with number 1, the
beginning of that particular climb and the lessons that were needed for that climb were brought forth from the intellect
as well as the mental process. There is a difference between these two processes: our mental process is what we use every
day for routine reasoning tasks, while our intellect is what we draw on from what is known as the wisdom channel.

By wisdom channel, Pythagoras was referring to our higher self,


which embodies all of our previous life experiences.
The wisdom channel represents all the wisdom we have accumulated since we were created. We can call on our
higher self at any time for guidance. It is, after all, who we really are. The person you see in the mirror is only one
physical expression of a soul that has been many places, done many things, and learned more than we can possibly
imagine. We choose the lessons we need to work on prior to incarnating, but we do not control the method by which
the lessons will be presented to us in each life. Special celestial beings help us put together our Life Script, which
contains the events and challenges we will face. Without this special control factor, we would be reluctant to deal with
many events and people involved in those events. Yes, we are aware of some circumstances ahead of time, but not all of
them.
On the following pages, we will explore some of the number meanings. I say some because there are other meanings
your intuition will reveal to you. Each Numerology book contains a few number characteristics that are a little different,
but they are all related. There is room on the Memory Exercises pages in the back of this book to make notes if you
wish, or you can keep a separate journal of names and numbers that relate to them.
It is important to do the exercises every day for a while. Learning by association is the easiest way to remember
anything. If you are enjoying the process then it isnt a task. At the end of a month, you will have covered many of the
important numbers.
You will notice I do not include the negative aspects of each number. Common sense tells you what those meanings
are. All numbers except the Master Numbers 11, 22, 33, 44 reduce to a single number, but we still take their reduced
value into consideration.
In the future, the planet will deal with Master Numbers above 44, but it is not important at this time. When you
read a double-digit number, remember that the first number is expressing with the energies of the second number rather
than through it. Except for the Master Numbers, double-digit numbers are not any more powerful than single ones.
They simply add another dimension to that meaning. Chapters six, seven and eight all contain easy exercises for daily
practice. They take only a few minutes of your time.
Paul G. Minar 27

The 9 is a very demanding number. It excels in philanthropic endeavors that are totally selfless in their essence. The
9 person has worldly capabilities, but must be prepared for disappointments and setbacks until it totally understands
the impersonal aspect of its purpose, for it must be in total control of the emotions. Always aspire to include the 9
qualities in your daily life. By giving, you will gain.

The Meaning of the NumbersMaster Numbers

The Master Numbers most used in Numerology are 11 and 22. The 33 applies in fewer cases, and the 44 is just
coming into play in the New Millennium, preparing the way for the 55, which will make its appearance much later in
the 2000 Millennium.
First of all, it is important to remember that these Master Numbers do not mean that those individuals who have
them in their charts are necessarily master teachers of a high order. It has been my experience that the highest of master
teachers prefer to maintain a low profile in order to work without too much distraction.
Certain spiritual leaders are recognized worldwide as master teachers because their position of leadership requires it,
and they have demonstrated their wisdom and spiritual leadership. I have no problem with that. God always provides
a certain number of highly evolved individuals whose names do not contain clues to their true status, so it is best not
to make too much of the subject of persons whose names contain Master Numbers. They know who they are.
It is impossible for us to know our true level of spiritual evolvement while in a physical body, and equally important,
not to be judgmental about the spiritual status of those around us.
There is a special group of beings of the Saints and Sages category who volunteer out of pure love and service to
reincarnate and assume roles that do not attract worldwide attention. Their special energies and abilities help to keep
the planet in a state of balance and harmony in many ways. Some leave their legacy in the form of spiritual writings and
teachings not known to very many during their lifetime. Perhaps the most important thing about Master Numbers is
not if they appear in a chart, but rather, that we all aspire to their qualities in our daily lives.

The Meaning of the Numbers11

has a strong personality.

Master Number 11 contains the energies associated with inspiration. It assists the individual who has it in their name
or chart to be a special teacher.
Remember, we are all expected to be teachers in our own unique way. If these individuals express the positive aspects
of this number, they are deep thinkers about all aspects of life, and intensify the attributes of both the number 1 and
number 2 energies.

The Meaning of the Numbers33

Self-sacrifice is the keyword for the Master Number 33.

These very special individuals express great love, compassion and forgiveness for all
people. They teach by setting a perfect example of the highest ideals of personal
conduct.

They are forceful of personality, having all the charisma of the 3 as well as the
balancing force of the 6, taken to a much higher level.

At a time when trust is sometimes a rare commodity, the 33 can bring people of diverse cultural, political, economic
and spiritual backgrounds together, because they truly project substance, integrity and truth. They are the great
communicators and creative social workers of today.
A perfect example of the 33 personality would be someone like Jesus, the Christ. No one can deny that he has been
the most influential man of the past millennium, and continues to be in the New Millennium.
The qualities of the 33 are not always prominent in a Numerology Chart because these individuals do not always
want to be known. You have to look past the numbers and intuitively see the 33 qualities. However, these individuals
can be found where they are most neededworking with the masses as special social workers, teachers, or spiritual
leaders.
Another field that fits their skills is the entertainment world, where their charisma and communication abilities reach
people all over the globe. They are not likely to be found as leaders of technology, industry or business, for that is not
their calling, but they are shrewd investors and entrepreneurs.
I will not list their characteristics at this time because they encompass, in an expansive way, all the qualities of the 3
expressing with the qualities of the 6. They have a special poise and nobility that sets them apart from others. The true
33 person knows who they are, and many are found on television and in films these days.
Also, I have not provided a daily memory exercise for the 33 personality in order to honor the privacy of those who
carry this enlightened number. This does not make them any less human, for they go through the same trials and
tribulations as anyone else. When they incarnate on this level, they are subject to human emotions. And yes, they make
their share of mistakes along the way, but they recover quickly and move on, as we all should.
40 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The Meaning of the Numbers44

This number was truly made for the world we live in today. These individuals have to
deal with all the challenges and pressures of high finance, business and technology.
They are the super planners, architects and organizers of national as well as
international projects. Their special skills are needed to help bring balance when the
economy falters.

Authority is the key word for the 44 personality, which possesses all the qualities of
the 22 taken to a much higher level. These are the decision makers of the New
Millennium. They have the clout necessary to put the brakes on runaway power. They
have the spiritual consciousness that is in short supply in a world where financial
profit is the bottom line at the expense of the financial needs of the masses. They will
work with the 22 and 33 individuals in particular, and will inspire all the 11 individuals to reach higher and contribute
their maximum abilities, for all of our energies are needed now more than ever in the history of the world.
The 44 possesses emotional control and integrity, and has the willpower necessary to maintain high moral standards.
The 44 also brings great intelligence and common sense to the 2000 Millennium. This is a crucial crossroads of
civilization. We have reached the pinnacle of technology and science, but our compassion and willingness to share our
knowledge, wealth and resources with those less fortunate is sorely lacking.
The 44 is the hope of the world because these men and women have the power skills and spiritual motivation to
cause positive change in the way power is distributed and used today. The 44 people are our protection against
exploitation of our natural resources in the name of economic necessity. They are instrumental in maintaining a balance
between conservative and liberal viewpoints. They are paving the way for the next Master Number 55, which will make
its appearance later in the New Millennium.
A solid foundation is necessary for the changes that are coming in the future. We do not know, even now, how to
dispose of our own waste materials and rusting World War II bombs and toxic materials. How are we going to plan for
the future? We do indeed; have a lot of garbage to clean up.
Paul G. Minar 41

The Meaning of the Numbers55

The watchword for the 5 is change. The watchword for the Master Number 55 is big
changes. Lots of them are coming, because change is the only thing that allows
progress.

We have made great progress regarding science and material things in general, but the
big changes coming to the planet will be in new patterns of thought. The 5 is the
middle number on the scale of 1 to 9the balancerthe motivator.

While the 44 Master Number focused on the challenges of high finance, business
and technology, the 55 individuals will bring attention to changes in attitude.
They are the great communicators and adventurers. They possess the
resourcefulness to continue the foundation constructed by the 44 individuals, but more on a mental level. Technology
has made communication easier in one respect, but very difficult in another.

Personal and Universal Numbers


(Sample Chart for Element Nine)

They influence each year, month and day of your life. However, your Personal Year, Month, and Day numbers are
the most important, because they influence your personal world, as opposed to global events in general, represented by
the Universal Year, Month, and Day numbers.
The Personal Year number is calculated by adding your birth month (reduced if two digits) plus the birth day
(reduced if two digits) and the current 4-digit year (reduced) to produce a final single digit.
The Personal Month number is calculated by adding the Personal Year number to the chronological number of any
given month (reduced) to produce, again, a final single digit.
The Personal Day number is calculated by adding the Personal Month number to the chronological day number in
the same manner.
The Universal Year number is calculated by adding the four digits of the current year, and then reducing them to a
single digitin this case I reduce Master Numbers also: 2003 reduces to 5, 2004 = 6, 2005 = 7, 2006 = 8, 2007 = 9,
2008 = 10/1, and so forth.

The Universal Month number = Universal Year plus current month.


The Universal Day number = Universal Month plus current day.

Sample Chart for someone born on October 9, 1925:

Universal Year number for 2004: 2+0+0+4=6


Personal Year number for 2004: 1 + 9 + 6 (2004) = 16, which reduces to 7

February ........................(2) + (7) = (9) (8)
March ............................(3) + (7) = (1) (9)
April ..............................(4) + (7) = (2) (1)
May................................(5) + (7) = (3) (2)

October ....................10 (1) + (7) = (8) (7)
November..................11 (2) + (7) = (9) (8)
December..................12 (3) + (7) = (1) (9)

* In this case, September is a double intensity month because the Personal Month number is the same as the Personal
Year number. Its a math thing.

Personal and Universal Numbers

These numbers influence events and experiences in your life! Every day we read the morning paper to see what is
happening in the world. We check weather conditions in advance so we will know ahead of time how to dress or get to
work.
When preparing for vacation, we check on all travel arrangements, because we want things to go smoothly. So why
not know in advance what conditions to expect regarding the events in your life for the coming year, month, and each
day? Remember, there are nine basic ways for anything to happen, and you have already familiarized yourself with the
meaning of the numbers 1 through 9, so this is a good time to do your first exercise using that knowledge.
On the previous page we saw a sample Personal Chart together with an explanation of how to calculate it. Now you
can do your own chart and refer to the following descriptions for each year, month, and day to know in advance what
to expect.
To get the most out of each day of your life remember that you have to put an equal amount of positive energy into
each day.

The numbers were created to assist us, not to do our work for us.
Personal Year 1: Time for new beginnings! Put that new idea into action. Start a new relationship or career.
Be daring. Start a new hobby. Explore new opportunities and assert yourself. You will be energized so go for
it. This is your action year!
Personal Year 2: The calm following a year of activity. Time to nurture the ideas started last year. Be patient,
and guard against being too sensitive in this emotional year. Be cooperative. Details need attention now.
Diplomacy pays big dividends. Use your diplomatic skills and get results!
Personal Year 3: Creative expression is the key word this year, in any endeavor you undertake. Have fun and
socialize. Plan those projects. Your communication skills will be enhanced by a smile and an outgoing
personality. Writing and speaking skills are heightened. The efforts of the past two years will start to bloom
now and you can envision the successful results.
Personal Year 4: A foundation year. Organizational skills and practicality are needed. Time to roll up your
sleeves and go to work. Show loyalty and willingness to deal with routine and system. Dont overtax your
body. Allow for some fun to offset the work. Exercise and allow plenty of time to rest.
Personal Year 5: Be ready for changes, and sudden ones. Life will not be boring this year. A good time to enjoy
travel or adventure. A strong feeling of freedom prevails, and unexpected opportunities appear, so think
positive. The 5 governs sensuality, so dont go overboard. Show your flexibility and adaptability this year.
Personal Year 6: The number of relationships and responsibility. Dont say no to those who ask for your
assistance. Love and marriage are possible under this vibration, and matters relating to the home are
important. Time to decorate! Service and compassion enhance your life now. Maintain high ideals and
promote peace and harmony. Also, allow time for yourself. Taking care of others can be stressing on your
health, so allow for plenty of relaxation and pleasant excursions.
Personal Year 7: A number of introspection, analysis and research. The 7 needs time to be alone. This is not
a year to be too aggressive regarding financial or material pursuits. However, the 7 is a lucky number, drawing
unexpected assistance in surprising ways. Allow time for spiritual contemplation. This is a very spiritual
number.
Personal Year 8: A year for focusing on finances and business or material matters. Projects started in a 1 year
need polishing now, for they are ready to implement. Organization and administration are important now.
The number 8 represents the decision maker. Allow for the needs of others involved in your activities, and
46 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

they will support you. As with the 4, dont overtax your body. Exercise, enjoy some entertainment and get
plenty of rest.
Personal Year 9: The completion year! Take care of any loose ends now, and re-examine projects or plans to
see if changes are necessary. Release outmoded ideas or things. Be tolerant, compassionate and forgiving. The
nine energies allow for large-scale ideas and activities. Financial rewards follow those who place humanitarian
needs first. The 9 number combines the best aspects of all the numbers.

By knowing in advance the type of experiences you are going to have, you can wisely prepare for them, but you also
need to understand why they are happening to you at this time. That takes some reflection on your part, and on a
regular basis. Take the time each day to think about what you want to accomplish.
While the above Personal Year, Personal Month, and Personal Day descriptions are very helpful, you need to study
all the attributes of each number in order to apply just the right ones for your needs. While I have listed many attributes,
there are still more to discover, so let your intuition explore them as well. As your consciousness grows, so will your
understanding of the numbers and your understanding of yourself!
Some Numerologists use the 11 and 22 Master Numbers as part of the Personal Year calculations, and I have no
problem with that, but I think that concentrating on nine numbers is enough for this situation. I prefer to think of
Master Numbers in connection with a persons name as a very personal attribute.
The Life Path, or destiny number, can change for some individuals. Contracts are made with
special celestial counselors prior to incarnating, and they can be altered for the right purpose.
C hange is Change is always present in our lives and we must be flexible enough to make the necessary
adjustments. Those who choose a life of service to humanity are most affected by changes in
always their Life Path.
present in Apply the Personal Year equation to family members and friends. The more you do the more
our lives. you will understand the meaning of the Personal Year Chart. No matter how much you may
remember from the number characteristics, you will eventually get insights of your own.
There will be more information on reducing the double digits in chapter nine, when we
study the Numerology Chart dealing with your full name at birth and your birth-date, but for purposes of the Personal
Year chart all numbers are reduced to a single digit by adding them together.
Note that in September there is a double intensity month, because your Personal Month number is the same as
your Personal Year number. Because of the arithmetic involved in progressing from 1 to 9, that situation happens on all
charts.
As you look at your chart for the current year, keep in mind that next year will progress to the next number of the
nine-year cycle. Likewise, you can work backwards to verify what the influences were last year, the year before, etc.
Also, while we use the term Personal Year, use the formula already provided to determine the Personal Month and
Personal Day. The days provide ongoing practice.
The Universal Year has to be considered because you are affected by global events and influences, and sometimes
they are more dynamic, such as world conflict or economics. Your Personal Year is still most important, because you are
more in control.

Numbers Within Numbers

Your numbers versus the numbers of those individuals around you: your family, community, city, state, country and
the world. Knowing the numbers of others makes it easier to understand why certain things are happening to them,
and it is also easier for you to help them.
As we progress through the Numerology Chart the numbers-within-numbers concept will become more dynamic
because the vowels will produce one influence and the consonants another, and your birth-date will add yet another
dimension. Other parts of the Numerology Chart contribute still more numbers, but all of them together weave the
tapestry that is you. The nine cycle is Gods way of ensuring change and the variety of experiences needed for your
personal growth.

Personal and Universal Numbers in the Past Century

After the death of Jesus Christ, the world began a new journey with the calendar numbers during the early formative
years from One to One Thousand A.D. There was a great deal of confusion and contradiction regarding spiritual belief
systems but it was a beginning, as represented by the number 1. It is said that Jesus incarnated to provide a pattern of
behavior for humankind to emulate, regardless of their particular belief system.
Within that thousand-year period there were nine stages of development represented by hundred-year periods, the
tenth being the bridge to another cycle of numbers within numbers culminating in the year 2000 and the arrival of the
New Millennium.
At this writing, we are in the year 2006 and the United States and other countries are in severe economic straits. The
years prior to September 11, 2001 were extremely prosperous ones. The stock market was at full gallop and technology
companies and stocks produced millionaires overnight. They in turn purchased million dollar homes and luxury cars
and greatly impacted the housing and rental markets. Now, that electronics field is suffering and unemployment is
marked by thousands of layoffs. Travel security is costly. State assistance for the unemployed is greatly impacting state
budgets. The health industry is cutting benefits for members. Disaster relief has drained aid resources. Fighting
terrorism is a global war issue and requires vast sums of money. People are afraid or unable to spend money. The 2 of
2000 requires patience and cooperation together with looking at both sides of everything. On the positive side, people
and nations have united in a single purpose not seen since World War II.
However, there is disagreement between nations as to how to deal with other nations accused of having weapons of
mass destruction, including chemical ones. Financial aspirations, relationships and power coupled with religious and
cultural differences are causing distrust and fear on a scale not seen in the history of the world. The tragedies of life
today are played out in the memories and dreams of men, women and children every day. There are positive happenings
and positive people that do not seem to be newsworthy. How sad that violence should take center stage and profits are
so important.
Going backwards from 2000, the past century showed the characteristics of the 1 with its
individuality and innovativeness, together with the powerful 9, which denotes universality,
The Nineties humanitarianism and responsibility, but like a double-edged sword, we have seen the
represented negative aspect with wars and aggression. The word terrorism became as fearful as war.
The Iron Age had replaced clubs with swords and other more destructive weapons. The
finality in all emergence of technology changed warfare and violence into a force capable of destroying the
things. planet. It also brought news of global strife and violence instantly into our homes. There was
a time when good or bad news had to be hand-carried from place to place and people were
mostly concerned with happenings in their own village or town. Now, news of any kind is
available instantly.
What you cant see or hear, cant hurt you no longer protects our sensibilities. The age of technology has become
the age of enormous stress all over the world. The Nineties represented finality in all things with extreme violence and
great humanitarianism. Each year had two 9s except for 1999, which had triple power and worldwide chaos. The
children of the Nineties demonstrated great mental abilities, and were an unexpected challenge for their parents and
anyone responsible for their care. Live wires is an expression that best describes them. Some, however, will be
remembered for extreme violence against other children in schools. That strong mental ability and drive will be needed
by the world when these children of the Nineties start their respective careers. They will have to respect the fact that
other individuals have a different set of numbers and great mental prowess might not be one of their strengths. They
will have to find a relaxing outlet for their energies and hopefully service to humanity will be an important part of their
personalities. While we will be thinking about and utilizing the energies of the 2 in the New Millennium we are actually
in the beginning stages of the 3 because we have finished two thousand years. After a birthday, we carry that age in our
minds for the next year but we actually finished it on our birthday and start on the next one immediately. As a matter
of fact, the next year begins a split-second after we commemorate our birth time.
The Eighties were a period of great material growth, especially in America with its industrial, technical and financial
structure. The term Yuppie emerged and was associated with those who accumulated wealth and power quickly. The
8 is widely recognized as a money number and is associated with business and executive ability. It belongs to the

progress was slower. Individuals, regardless of their place on the financial ladder, had
great pride in their job, craft or career. It was commonplace for young men to follow their

handling of material thingsbeing too aggressive or too passiveresponsible or
irresponsible regarding those matters.

Individuality was the key word for the Seventies.

The need for personal success was important because the 7 individual does not like to work on an assembly line or
with groups. That individual will share a project as long as he or she has an independent assignment to fulfill. The
Vietnam War was over and certain idealism, born in the Sixties, was put to the test as young men and women started
their careers. They were determined not to repeat the mistakes of an older generation. It is interesting to now revisit
some of those individuals and see if they remained true to their intentions. The 7 carries with it not only an intellectual
pursuit, but a spiritual one as well and these people searched for a special identity using mental exploration. Many chose
to open their own businesses and those who expected idealism alone to develop and prosper paid the price with failure.
The practicality and business expertise of the 8 was also necessary. The late Seventies saw the emergence of street
people who have grown in numbers and live a lone existence for the most part, expressing an unfortunate aspect of the
7.

The flower children and the Vietnam War dominated the Sixties.

There was a great polarity in the world because of the permissiveness that was associated with being a free spirit, but
these individuals provided the voice of the anti-war movement. Make love, not war was a common expression and
bumper sticker. The 6 represents love, personal and community responsibility and the importance of the family.
Marriage was no longer a prerequisite for living together or having children. The flower children brought a new fashion-
sense to the world and a great love of music, dancing and color.
Unfortunately, drugs of all sorts were part of this new culture. For those of us who were old enough to be a part of
this era (actively or passively) it was an exciting and challenging time to be on the planet. In the chapter on
Reincarnation, I have more to say about the flower children but for now I will say that I believe they were new souls
and their child-like approach to life demonstrated their lack of life experience. Like children, obeying standard rules was
often too confining, but like children, they gave the word love special emphasis and meaning. Along with peace it was
spoken and shouted more times in that decade than at anytime in the history of the world. On the downside, John F.
Kennedy, his brother Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King were assassinated. Hate and bigotry are the flip side of
the 6 energies. The Civil Rights Movement caused society to face an equal rights situation that many felt was moving
too fast, but change was not to be denied at that time. In a country like ours, with so many different cultures and belief
systems, it is more than a challenge to bring people together on common ground. The energies of the New Millennium
are designed to accommodate that process. Minorities are increasing in numbers and consequently in voting strength,
so sooner or later, the changes that have been put off by many will become a reality. The energies of the 2 in the Twenty-
first Century will be needed for cooperation among diverse groups and to allow people to see more than one side of
many issues.

The Fifties were a decade of relative freedom.

World War II was over but the Korean War, though a much smaller conflict, started in 1950 and lasted three years.
Senator McCarthy started a communist witch-hunt that invaded and destroyed private lives and careers everywhere.
That was an extreme opposite of freedom. People were exploring all sorts of careers. Change was everywhere. Industry
and manufacturing shifted to peacetime endeavors. Automobile design changed dramatically. They were futuristic
compared to the cars of the forties. Radio programs expanded in their concepts and television began to take the first
steps in its growth. New careers were launched in technical, artistic, writing and programming areas. The movies now
had a different type of competition and news coverage became a live event in the living room. Those who are old enough
to remember the war years of sitting in the living room listening to radio programs, really appreciate the birth of this
new communication and entertainment form. There was a simplicity about the Fifties that
was relaxing, because technology had not emerged to the point of creating the fast pace
T he Forties are and stress of today. Exploration was a key word for that time, in all areas of life.
The Forties are remembered as the War Years though there was also World War I. The
remembered as number 4 was expressed in many ways. It was a time of industriousness and application,
the War Years. of hard work and high ideals. People pulled together for a common cause. Loyalty and
trustworthiness were vital to the war effort. It was also the era of music, the big bands and
movies. People needed a distraction and entertainment to get their minds off the trauma
of war in Europe and Asia. We converted to a war industry and produced planes, tanks and guns faster than anyone
could have imagined. People of all countries made the sacrifices that were necessary, giving up everyday products and
luxuries and most of all, the lives of those who served in the military. Women filled in mens peacetime jobs, entered
the military and became Rosie the riveters in the factories. New materials, like plastics, were needed for the war effort
and were converted to peacetime use later. Nylons were a rare luxury item for the women. Children hungered for
chocolate candy and coffee was replaced with a substitute called Postum. Canned Spam became a meat substitute. So
many men were away at war and so many lost their lives that a new focus on women emerged, but equal pay was not
part of it and that struggle continues today. However, women have entered the male work force with much greater
financial and social compensation in recent years becoming police officers, construction workers, firefighters, airline
pilots, doctors, scientists and corporate executives. The Forties were a foundation for the future and we learned by our
mistakes except for the ability to avoid war in later years. If all countries put the same energy into keeping the peace as
they did in preparing for and conducting warfare that mindset would carry over to nurturing the planet and one another
as well.

The Thirties

The farther back I travel, the less I can draw on from my own life experience. The
T he first 3s of the Thirties produced creative expression, but not always on the positive side of
that number of joy. Comic strips grew in popularity in America while the Nazi party
concentration began its rise in Germanythe first concentration camps were erected in Germany in
camps were 1933. Technocracy became a phenomenon. Science began examining molecular
structure thanks to the use of x-rays. The U.S. Social Security Act was signed by
erected in President Roosevelt in 1935. A financial crisis permeated this country and Europe
Germany in 1933. while the people of Russia suffered from starvation. Great construction projects like
Boulder Dam in Nevada began and commercial flights between the U.S. and Europe
were inaugurated. Transportation innovations were evident also with ships and trains.
World War II was brewing before the end of this era. The rights of the working force in America were given a
momentous boost by the establishment of the forty-hour work week. As a relief from world strife, music boosted public
spirits, both popular and classical. The film industry and literature contributed their creative input as well. Always, we
have to remember that there is both a positive and negative side to numerical influences and human beings have the
choice as to which side to express. Behind the most memorable achievements or disasters our free will is the instigator.
Paul G. Minar 51

The Twenties

This decade is generally remembered as the flapper era but there was, as usual, a broader
spectrum of happenings in the world. The 2 influence provided energies for cooperation, harmony
and peace. But again, free will is the key to determining which aspect of the 2 predominates.
T he
Hitlers storm troopers were terrorizing political opponents. At the same time Britain and Ireland Flapper
signed a peace treaty. The first radio programs were broadcast in the U.S., and the British Era
Broadcasting Company was started early in this eracreative communication. Mahatma Gandhi
was sentenced to six years in prison for civil disobedience but his voice for peace was not to be
silenced. Palestine was still a subject for disagreement between Arabs and Jews. The International Union for Cultural
Cooperation was founded in Vienna at the same time the new Ku Klux Klan gained political power in America.
American jazz was being born in New Orleans. A new controversy was born in New York with the establishment of the
first birth control clinics. On a positive note, old-age pensions were first established in Nevada and Montana. The
Gregorian calendar was introduced in the U.S.S.R. The Pan-American Treaty was signed in 1924 to prevent conflicts
between nations. The Charleston became the fashionable dance in America in 1925. Women were liberated, in a fashion
sense, when straight dresses appeared without a waistline and skirts were raised above the knees. Silent films were the
rage with stars like Al Jolson graduating to the first talkie. The first scheduled television broadcasts were inaugurated in
New York. The end of this era is remembered for the collapse of the U.S. Stock Exchange creating the term Black
Friday. Always, events seem to have an ebb and flow between joy and despair.

The early Twentieth Century

No one talks about the 1910s. The first twenty years are simply recognized as the early 1900s. This era was truly
a beginning in many ways expressing the most prominent aspect of the number 1. Alpha and beta rays were discovered
in radioactive atoms. The first magnetic recording of sound was accomplished. Excavations in Crete revealed discovery
of the Minoan culture. After one hundred years of steam, the century of electricity began. Automobile manufacturing
was highlighted by the introduction of the first Mercedes car, Henry Ford founded the Ford Motor Company and
developed the first Model T. Youll be glad to know that the first teddy bears were named after Theodore Roosevelt. This
was truly the era of invention. We have made far greater strides in modern times, but this was the beginning of
innovation in manufacturing, industry and science. This provided an impetus for the arts, in terms of making them
available to the masses, whether film, musical recordings, radio transmission or later television transmission. Innovation
is contagious and leads humanity in many directions at the same time. The Titanic sank in 1912, shocking those who
thought she was invincible and creating more practical and safer methods of shipbuilding. The U.S. found an innovative
way to raise money, so the Federal Income Tax was born. World War 1 began midway through this era and the U.S.
became involved when the Germans sank the Lusitania. The womens suffrage movement was under way at this time.
A worldwide influenza epidemic struck in 1918 killing nearly twenty-two million people. By 1919 there were peace
celebrations in Britain and race riots in Chicago. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson received the Nobel Peace Prize.

Everywhere there was something to celebrate


and something to cause anguish.

The Pythagorean Matrix


54 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The Pythagorean MatrixThe Arrows of Pythagoras

The accompanying graphics depict the nine circles I use in this book. Usually, a box-shaped grid is used in
Numerology books to illustrate this configuration. It utilizes the numbers from 1 to 9 that are present in the birth-date,
and those numbers start with the lower left circle, as you can see in the accompanying graphics. The 0 is not used in
this configuration. Both systems accomplish the same end, which is to separate and categorize the numbers in a persons
birth month, day and year. When interpreted properly, the various configurations paint a very accurate picture of the
individuals personality, behavioral inclinations, and also the strengths and weaknesses. No one can have all the spaces
filled, but the overall view does show a state of balance as well as areas of behavior that that are strong and areas that
need work. Each lifetime we are born on a different date, along with a different name, and the configuration is
deliberate, for it indicates what we bring into each lifetime to enhance life experiences.
The numbers that are not present in a persons birth month, day and year can be found in the name and vice-versa
for the most part. The 19901999 period insured the presence of the 1 and 9 with an abundance of 9s. I suspect there
were not a great number of children born during the month of September during this period because that is the ninth
month of the year. The whole idea is to have a balanced spread of numbers in this configuration. Except for the number
1, the balance of numerical energies generally is better with one of each number represented. I say generally because
there is always a reason for more than one number occupying a circle. It could represent a strength needed or a karmic
situation to be worked out. Those children who were born at that time (the 1990s) certainly possessed a very strong
mind line. I also suspect that this strong mental energy is Gods way of insuring a crop of children that were very self-
sufficient at a time when either both parents or single parents depended on day care assistance for their young ones. The
old days of a strong family presence nearby to help rear children are gone. Children travel far from their roots these days
to seek a career, marry and settle down. Now that we are in the 2000 period, just look at how many numbers are
missing. I also suspect there will be fewer February births because that month supplies a 2 for the equation. We can skip
back to the Eighties, Seventies, etc. and apply this same formula. Our full birth name and birth month, day and year
work together to bring balance to our lives and to help fulfill the unique needs of each life experience.
I have presented the Arrows of Pythagoras prior to the Numerology Chart in order to provide you with lots of
practice with the numbers, but I also make it an integral part of my Numerology Charts. Working with birthdates is
quick, easy and fun and should inspire you to learn the meaning of the numbers faster. However, remember that birth-
dates are personal so do not invade anyones privacy while practicing. Getting family members involved is one way to
validate the accuracy of your interpretations because you already know a lot about each other, but do obtain permission
first. It seems like a game because it is fun but it is also part of the Sacred Science of Numbers. If you are going to work
with this configuration a great deal make sure you do your homework and really learn all the facets (or interpretations) of
each number or your interpretations will be shallow and inaccurate. If you are not going to seriously study the number
meanings, do not attempt to interpret them. This is not a show and tell parlor game!
This beautiful configuration or combination of numbers is taken from the complete birth date. You simply start with
the month, and place that number or numbers in the appropriate circle or circles. Do not reduce double-digits.
Remember, 0s are not used here.
Then place the date of birth in the appropriate circle or circles.
Next, place the year of birth in the appropriate circle or circles. The year 2000 utilizes only the 2 in one circle; the
three 0s are not used in this configuration.
As you will soon see, there is no direct connection between the use of the birth date numbers that produce the Life
Path number, as opposed to their use in the following configurations.

The Life Path Number

The Life Path number represents just that: the type of events or life experiences that a person encounters throughout
life as a part of their growth process. The Life Path number is arrived at by adding all the numbers of the month, day
and year from left to right. Reduce double-digits to a single digit and reduce the outcome to a single digit unless it is a
Master Number. (Chapter nine covers the Life Path as part of the Numerology Chart.)
Paul G. Minar 55

The Pythagorean Matrix Numbers

The Pythagorean Matrix numbers represent a personal profile of strengths and weaknesses. In the preceding chapter
you saw how the full birth month, day and year numbers provided a formula for constructing the Personal Year, Personal
Month and Personal Day charts. In chapter nine, we will use the complete birth date to construct the Pinnacles and
Challenges chart. The numbers in this chart describe attitudes and inner reactions rather than people, places or
environment, and how to successfully deal with the challenges contained in our Life Path numbers. We have the same
complete birth date but four different formulas for interpreting this special event: Personal and Universal numbers,
Pythagorean Matrix, Life Path, and Pinnacles and Challenges charts.
No individuals birth date will contain all the numbers and the 0s also take up space that numbers would otherwise
occupy. As we will see in the examples later, some Pythagorean Matrix charts are more balanced than others. But
remember, there is a reason for the placement of these numbers. As I mentioned earlier, they show strengths and
weaknesses. They show duplicate numbers which must be interpreted very carefully.
They show the absence of numbers as well. Achieving balance is the objective in life and balance is desirable in this
chart as well. Sometimes, two or more people will have the same Life Path number but their combination of numbers
will fall into different circles, indicating a different set of personal characteristics. Also,
there is generally a compensation factor between the numbers in a full name versus those
in a birth date. A chieving
Where birth date numbers are lacking in certain numbers, the full name generally balance is the
contains them to assist the persons state of balance. And of course, the reverse is also true.
I happen to like my Pythagorean Matrix design of circles and arrows because I believe it is objective.
easy to work with, in addition to being a unique design. I had a great deal of inspirational
assistance from Pythagoras. This design was not planned at the time I started writing
this book. This has been a project that took on a life of its own, both the text and all of the graphic designs. Chapter
twelve explores the life and teachings of Pythagoras with new information about when he lived, how he lived and
taught and how and when he died. I am sure you will enjoy the story of his life as much as I have, particularly since it
was related to me in his own words and manner of speaking.

The Pythagorean MatrixHow Many Numbers?

And now let us take a look at the significance of one versus more than one of the numbers appearing in a circle,
bearing in mind that balance is what we are looking for always in numerical exercises. But perfect balance does not exist!
So dont feel bad when you see some strange arrangements of your numbers. Your birth date numbers together with
your name will help balance your overall equation. Not to worry!

The 1s
Single 1
This individual tends to be a willing speaker though not necessarily a polished one. Expressing inner feelings is not
easy for the 1 person. Sometimes they speak too fast with their thoughts ahead of their words. They are of necessity self-
centered.
Two 1s
They are more balanced than a single 1 because 1 + 1 = 2 and that means more patience and diplomacy. They are
more independent and show more confidence.
Three 1s
They express more creatively with written and spoken words due to the 3 influence. They are very imaginative
individualsvery chatty, energetic, and joyful.
Four or more 1s
There are too many 1s here. Besides depriving the other circles of numbers this excess of 1 energy is an overload.
They push too hard, have difficulty relaxing and are sometimes too aggressive in behavior. The 2 energies would help
them to relax.

The 2s
Single 2
A number of sensitivity and intuitiveness. These individuals have a talent for seeing both sides of issues. They are
good judges of sincerity in others. The 2 makes a good bridge between the 1 and 3, providing the patience necessary to
make that leap.
Two 2s
Extra sensitivity is demonstrated here. Their feelings are easily hurt, especially those who are Cancers. They need to
choose professions where their emotions dont get in the way. They make better judges than lawyers. Good writers have
the 2 energies.
Three or More 2s
This is really a case of extreme sensitivity. Emotional control is a real challenge. Getting into arguments is easy for
them. They tend to withdraw and have few close friends. Four of these numbers indicates an out of control situation,
expressing as impatience and temperamental outbursts. They need the 4 energies to settle them down. Outlets like
gardening, hobbies or music would be helpful for this excess of 2 energies.
Paul G. Minar 57

The 3s
One 3
A single 3 is a great asset to this configuration, anchoring the Thought and Mind lines for creative planning and
execution. These people project their optimism and keen mind. They attract many friends with their charisma and
charm.
Two 3s
Great imagination is present here but these individuals need someone to help implement their creative ideas or they
tend to get frustrated. They make good writers and entertainers. They attract friends easily but dont always hang on to
them.
Three or More 3s
Thats a lot of creativity, expressing very strong imaginative energies. Their extreme creativity tends to work against
them. These energies need to be used with a good measure of discipline. Again, the 4 energies would help them to stay
grounded.

The 4s
One 4
These individuals are organized, practical and disciplined. The 4 person also tends to maintain good health patterns.
It grounds the Will line, supporting the 5 and 6.
Two 4s
These are hard workers and sometimes too much so, to the detriment of their health. They are very strong-willed,
detail-oriented and precise but must be considerate of those trying to keep up with their industriousness or they might
alienate themselves.
Three or More 4s
There is an overabundance of work energy here. Productivity becomes more important than good working
relationships. This might be a karmic situation from a previous lifetime where a good work ethic was missing. They
need to relax and smell the roses. A creative outlet, relaxation and rest are necessary for these overworked people.

The 5s
One 5
This is the center of the matrix! The 5 holds and dispenses the energies to the other satellites around it. It is much
like our sun, acting as the center of the numerical solar system. The 5 person motivates others. It is the adaptable
adventurer, always ready to make a change or take on another challenge. It is very analytical and articulate.
Two 5s
Their motto is Dont fence me in. Freedom is very important to the bearer of this number. They tend to experience
all that life has to offer, sometimes to their own regret. They must learn to respect social rules and limitations. They
must use their flexibility and love of adventure and challenge for positive purposes and learn to relax.
58 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Three or More 5s
This combination is really excessive. More is not better. Nervous energy abounds. Children demonstrate high energy
and need lots of patience and understanding from parents. Strong will and personality traits add to their cleverness. The
excess 5 people want leadership positions but need to have more patience and restraint to succeed. It is important to
look elsewhere in their Numerology Chart for numbers to balance this birth date equation. Relationships are not
enhanced by this kind of energy. The 2 and 4 energies would calm them down and help stabilize their lives. These
chaotic times can use the 5 energies, for as Pythagoras said, They are the workhorses of the New Millennium and
have exceptional ability to sift and sort information for new patterns of thought. Properly motivated, the 5 energies
can assist the 6 energies serving humanity.

The 6s
One 6
This is the number of love and responsibility with a social worker personality. Family and home are very important
to the 6 person. They bring harmony to their surroundings. Naturally, they make ideal parents and show concern for
people of all ages. They are always ready to listen to the problems of others and offer advice.
Two 6s
In most cases this represents one 6 too many. These individuals may be overprotective of family and friends or may
be considered busybodies. However, if properly motivated, they can contribute a great deal to their community and the
world at large. They should be careful not to overextend themselves. They should also allow time for rest, relaxation and
entertainment. They need a life of their own, too.
Three or More 6s
This represents a real excess of 6 energies. As parents, they need to give their children more slack. Friends need the
same consideration. Too much control or protectiveness causes alienation. Again, there is a reason for this excess of 6
energies and these individuals need to take a close look at all their numbers. Perhaps in a past life they were too self-
centered. A consultation with a good Numerologist would be helpful.
As Numerologists, we cannot be judgmental when it comes to numbers, whether too many or not enough. We can
only draw attention to these situations and discuss them with our clients. There is no substitute for a personal
consultation. Also, we learn from our clients too! This is why I like to do personal consultations, in person or by phone.

The 7s
One 7
The 7 personality is very introspective and likes privacy. He or she likes to work alone when it comes to the
workplace and may seek self-employment. The 7 individual is often perceived as aloof but that is not really the case.
The 7 is associated with metaphysical activities and if they pursue psychic interests for the right reasons they can be very
successful. The characteristics of introspection and reflection are ones we can all use, regardless of our numbers,
especially in a world where individuality is neglected.
Two 7s
This individual is a mystery to those around him or her. This is a good example of still water that runs deep. The 7
indicates a search for spiritual understanding. It has been called the number of perfection and is associated with very
challenging life experiences. But great personal growth can be achieved by those with this number.
Three or More 7s
I have rarely encountered three 7s (let alone four or more) but they have provided some great discussions for me
regarding philosophy or spirituality. This personality is capable of great writing ability, especially regarding the mysteries
of life because they have taken the time to study and analyze this fascinating subject. They are often perceived as
Paul G. Minar 59

unhappy individuals because they do not always demonstrate their lighter side. However, once you have gained their
confidence they can surprise you with their wit and humor. The 7 energies are enhanced if the 3 energies are present in
the name or birth date because it adds imagination to their mental depth.

The 8s
One 8
This is the decision-maker and executive type. Good judgment goes with this number. They are not particularly
creative as a rule. They are a double version of the 4organized and in controlbut sometimes they do not finish one
task before moving on to another. The 8 personality accomplishes more when the Action Line is complete.
Two 8s
Two 8 energies need to guard against an attitude of superiority because their success lies in creative support from
those assisting them. They need to show gratitude for those who do their prep work. They are very energetic. This
energy causes problems at an early age when they dont understand their abilities or the need for cooperating and
compromising with their friends. They also need to rest and relax.
Three or More 8s
This excess of high energy causes restlessness and lack of discipline. Their thoughts tend to become scattered at times.
They have very analytical minds and make quick decisions. Preparation and patience are the keys to their success. The
8 executive is wise to surround himself or herself with a staff that understands this high-energy personality and is willing
to take this aggressive personality in stride.

The 9s
One 9
This has been a common number during the 1990 decade but it is anything but common. It is the most effective
and complex of all the numbers because it represents the best attributes of all the numbers leading up to it. It connects
the Mind and Action lines. Its significance is more potent in the name numbers and Life Path number. It is a number
of selflessness and sacrifice. It is more effective in the hands of a person who is dedicated to serving humanity in some
way. It is the Universal Number, which means it is one with the laws of the universe. It is the most mysterious of all the
numbers.
Two 9s
A challenging combination of numbers, this indicates a very strong mind. They possess excellent reasoning powers.
They need to be considerate of those who do not possess these strong mental energies. Patience is a virtue and one they
need to practice in order to be successful. This abundance of 9 energies will hopefully assist the planet in the years to
come when changes have to be made globally in order to bring balance to a world dominated by powerful interests more
concerned with financial profit and power than caring for those less fortunate and deserving. At this writing, in 2006,
that goal seems a long way off, but I prefer to remain the eternal optimist. Understanding the power of numbers and
utilizing that power on a personal level can accomplish miracles!
Three or More 9s
Depending on their motive, the 9 individuals can achieve great heights but this is a great challenge for them. They
must control their emotions or they become their own worst enemies. Often, they are the loudest voices in a discussion,
unwilling to let others speak. They experience great highs and lows in life because calmness and consideration of others
eludes them. Those who succeed with this high mental energy learn early on to do more listening and less talking. They
need to find a relaxing outlet, like music.

The Pythagorean MatrixMissing Numbers and Lines

To adequately interpret the meaning of each missing number or incomplete Thought Line, Will Line, Action Line,
Mind Line, Self Esteem Line, Physical Line, Determination Line, or Compassion Line would require more pages in this
book than I have deemed necessary or practical.
Once you understand the meaning of the numbers (chapter six) you can apply that knowledge to any Numerology
equation including this birth date equation. It will take a little more thought on your part, but with the Numerology
Chart coming up in chapter nine, its time to practice what you have learned.
This equation is the easiest and quickest one to execute. It is the first equation I write on a piece of paper the moment
someone provides their birth date. It takes about five seconds to complete (ten if you are slow). It is the first thing I
write down prior to a Numerology consultation, in person or on the phone. It is a very effective attention-getter at a
coffee house social meeting and always leads to many questions about the subject of Numerology.
We have done the most challenging partsetting up the Pythagorean Matrix via the nine circles. You can do the
same thing in tic-tac-toe fashion, using two horizontal lines cross-crossed by two vertical ones. We have also explored
the meaning of the numbers from one to nine, whether used once or multiple times. If a number is missing, it simply
means that a particular type of numerical energy is missing in the equation. If many numbers are missing then the
overall balance of the equation is affected.
The secret is to practice, practice, practice! How long will it take you to say, I can do this? That depends on your
desire to learn the meaning of numbers.
At this time, I would like to refer you to a Numerology book that deals in-depth with this equation. It is called Your
NumbersYour Life and is co-authored by Mark Gruner and Eric Brown, two very fine Numerologists from Australia.
I am more familiar with Mark Gruner through an earlier book called, Mark Gruners Numbers of Life.
These gentlemen use a Pythagorean Star configuration the same way I use the Pythagorean Matrix. I know my own
strengths as a Numerologist but I also try to acknowledge the strengths of other Numerologists and give credit to them
in this book whenever appropriate. We all had to start somewhere by reading one Numerologists book, then adding
others to the list.
My first introduction to Numerology occurred as I walked down the aisle of a bookstore. I was startled when a book
fell off an upper shelf and landed at my feet. I picked it up and looked at the title. It was NumerologyThe Key To Your
Inner Self, and the author was Richard De Amorelli. It is no doubt long since out of print, but that book started my
journey of exploring numbers. Then I discovered my patron saint of Numerology in the form of Dr. Juno Jordan with
her wonderfully written book titled NumerologyThe Romance in Your Name. Then came Your Days Are Numbered, by
Florence Campbell. As for Mark Gruner and Erick Brown, thank you for inspiring me to delve more deeply into the
birth-date equation. I hope you enjoy my book as much as I have enjoyed yours. As they say in Australia, GDay
mates!

The Pythagorean Matrix


(Designed by Paul Minar)

This is the Pythagorean Matrix configuration. It


contains your definitive personality profile based
on all the numbers contained in your full birth
date, with the month letters converted to
numbers. Double digits are not reduced and the
0s are not used here. Your full birth date adds
another dimension to your unique Numerology
Chart. Eight personality characteristics are present
that provide an instant look at your traits.

This 1-2-3 combination is the Thought Line and


it describes a person with long range vision, able
to jump-start an idea or project utilizing the
originality and strength of the 1, patience and
cooperation of the 2 and the creative expression of
the 3. This person is an excellent designer and
project planner, able to conceive a complete
project and oversee its successful outcome, no
matter how complex it seems.

This 4-5-6 combination is the Will Line. It is well


grounded by the organizational energy of the 4,
flexibility of the 5 and responsibility of the 6.
These combined energies provide consistency and
teamwork. This person can be depended on to tie
loose ends together using the communication and
analytical skills of the 5 and people skills of the 6.
These individuals enjoy well-balanced lives.

This 7-8-9 combination is the Action Line. This


person does not procrastinate and finishes every
project. The 7 aspect provides analysis of tasks, the
8 contributes good judgment and decision-
making, and the 9 combines the best energies of
all the numbers that precede it. They are dynamic
people who rely on the creativity of others to assist
them. They are the executives but need to have
outlets of relaxation.
62 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

This 3-6-9 combination is the Mind Line, which


is anchored by the creative expression of the 3.
The people skills and responsibility traits of the 6
add special qualities to the strong mental energy
of this line. High intelligence does not mean the
same as mental strength but if it is present then
this person is a force to be reckoned with. The
understanding and compassion of the 9 completes
this triad.

This 2-5-8 combination represents self-esteem,


also known as the Soul Line because it deals with
inner feelings and strength. The patience and
cooperation of the 2, the adaptability and
motivating energies of the 5 and the excellent
judgment and leadership qualities of the 8 offer
many avenues to success. A full line here defines a
person who knows who he or she is and has the
charisma to achieve life goals.

This 1-4-7 line is known as the Physical Line. It


affects the material aspect of a persons life. This
individual possesses good stamina and pays
attention to health matters. It represents a
practical, organized individual with both feet on
the ground. It also indicates a strong work ethic.
A strong 1 presence provides individuality to
bolster the 4 diligence, and the 7 provides
introspection and spirituality.

The 1-5-9 combination is the Determination


Line. This individual will find a way, somehow, to
complete any task. Again, the 1 provides the
energy to start a project and the tenacity and
courage to keep going. The 5 allows for daringness
and exploration of all aspects of the project. It is
also the motivator that gathers assistance from
others. The 9 is the final universal ingredient that
allows for completion.
Paul G. Minar 63

The 3-5-7 combination is the Compassion Line.


It allows that individual to understand the needs
of fellow human beings. The 3 provides creativity
and the vision needed to seek solutions for
human suffering. In the New Millennium
especially, these people are the workhorses to
enforce principles of compassion and ethics
expressed by the 5. Their spiritual introspection is
heightened by the 7.

The Pythagorean MatrixSample Chart

This birth date configuration is the first numerical exercise I use at the beginning of a consultation with a client. I
use it while having coffee with someone at a caf because it can be done in less than ten seconds using two vertical lines
intersected by two horizontal oneslike tic-tac-toe. I can print out characteristics for an entire family in less than two
minutes. The information shows the inter-relationships going on between the various family members. Chapter seven
provided practice involving Personal and Universal Numbers and now you can use the Pythagorean Matrix to do quick
exercises that will make working with numbers an exercise that will help you to continue this adventure!

9-3-1957 (Joann Fortin, mother of Nathan


Fortin) This is a very well balanced chart. Note
the 99 she shares with her son on the
Mind/Action corner. Her 3 energies help her to
teach creative expression to him aided by her
husband, Ron Fortin (1-26-1963). She also
shares the 5 with her son. The 7 energies
demonstrate her intellectual and spiritual
pursuits and fortify the sacrifices on behalf of
her family.

8-28-1995 (Nathan Fortin, Joanns son).


What a strong Self Esteem line! Nathan is
completely self-assured and very sociable.
Also, note the full Determination Line leading
to the 88 with its strong executive abilities.
The 5 he shares with mom means a love of
adventure and exploration. Dads 66 teaches
love of family and responsibility. Both my
niece and her son demonstrate these qualities
all the time.

5-13-2000 These numbers represent those


children born in the New Millennium. Note the
empty Action Line. The 7-8-9 numbers have to
come from the name to bring a better balance.
The 5 is a balance number and helps them
articulate and be more independent. The 1-2-3
Thought Line means success due to creative
thought. These good souls will help create
positive patterns of thought in the future to
benefit the planet.

The Numerology Chart

The Numerology Chart

In my discussions with Pythagoras over the years, he liked to refer to numbers as signposts along lifes path. He
called this path The Avenue of Numbers. Simply stated, Numerology is the study of numbers as they relate to science,
mathematics, music, philosophy, psychology, religion and spirituality. Conventional research regarding the origin of the
study of numbers mentions ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt and the ancient books of wisdom like the Bible and the
Hebrew Kabbala. In response to my request for more information regarding this fascinating subject, Pythagoras
discussed the origin of numbers in the following two taped sessions.

Pythagoras, August 27, 1980:


Numerology, Sacred Numbersthe guiding energies of the spheresnoble work in itself, as are all the marvelous
tools to assist Man, and much like the quotes of the biblenumerous, beautiful, helpful, healing. They all give
meaning. And when compared one upon the other, Numerology and its many ways of being interpreted is a vast and
magnificent tool with which Man can support himself, and by that I mean he can tap into his inner core and release
the energies needed to complete tasks when he has the value and dignity that a Numerology Chart brings. It is not a
fortune telling tool as such. It is a tool by which Man can reach his destiny using his fullest potential, should he
choose. A vague opposition is always present when one presents the truth. At times, the vagueness becomes downright
ornery, but in all honesty, there would be less challenge if one were not opposed from time to time.

Pythagoras, October 11, 1996:


We greet you with the symbol of the Greeksthe love, the thought, and the design. Very often it is wondered where
all of our symbols and designs come from. They come from many planets, many countries, ancient civilizations, as well
as now. There is no set time or place for any of these symbols to have made their way here. Some have originated
millions of years ago and some as shortly as a year ago. Time is not of the essence with us as it is with you. So we scan
these many symbols to use as needed. We do not say we want to go back to a certain period and place and find
something. We scan just as you would on a computer to look for something.

The Alphabet With Thirty-One Numbers

In chapter six, I covered all the numbers represented by the alphabet including the Master Numbers 11, 22, 33, 44
and 55. The calendar months, however, contain numbers up to thirty-one. It is important that you focus on the
meaning of the numbers 1 through 9 because all number combinations except the Master Numbers reduce to those
single digits. The numbers beyond the twenty-six letters of our English alphabet are on their own, so to speak, without
the special affiliation of the letters, but we could not complete a calendar month without them. So here is an abbreviated
meaning of those numbers. Refer to chapter six for more options on the meaning of these numbers.

27Combines the cooperation of the 2 with the introspection of the 7. Quiet determination, patience and diplomacy
add to the idealism of this number combination.

28Strong-willed and dominant yet compassionate. The 2 does not provide the strong starting base of the 1 for
double-digit numbers. Many executives carry the 28 energies.

29A very spiritual number due to the Universal 9. They make excellent teachers and leaders on a large scale when
properly motivated. Must stay focused and upbeat.

30A number of high creativity expressing with the energies of the 0. These individuals are very imaginative and
energetic. Their efforts need recognition.

31Again, lots of creativity expressing with the individuality of the 1. These individuals must remain organized and
apply themselves in tasks. They also make good writers.

The Numerology ChartThe Twenty-Seventh Letter

Pythagoras informed me during a channeling session (September 20, 1996) that a twenty-seventh letter would
be added to our present alphabet and that this event was originally scheduled for the end of the previous century, but
in the words of Pythagoras, The planet is not ready for it, nor are its inhabitants. In the year 2095 there is great
consideration of the twenty-seventh letter. This letter would be a vowel and its function would be to give that feeling
of going to a much higher level on an individual basis, to become that which that person would be. It is in preparation
for that letter now. People are being prepared for it but they are not quite ready for it.
I asked if that letter would come from this country. He answered that it would be a joint effort and it would be in
all cultures, all languages, at the same time. I had read several years ago in a Numerology book about this twenty-seventh
letter, so I find it fascinating that Pythagoras should validate this occurrence and state that the introduction of this
letter has been postponed to the end of our present century.
On May 19th, 2003, Pythagoras made a surprise visit during a discussion I had with Isabelle. Among other
Numerology subjects, I again asked about the twenty-seventh letter. He stated that this addition was still under
consideration by the Higher Essences (those highly evolved beings we equate with the Saints and Sages).
These beings represent the administrative arm of God, or the Supreme Being. We think we are in total control of
our earthly destinies or happenings, but the truth is that if we were, we would have self-destructed when the nuclear
age began. We can be thankful that someone else is truly in charge of the future of this magnificent planet and its
inhabitants. Like little children, we are allowed to go just so far with our mischief, and then a higher authority takes
control. Yet we always take credit when worldly happenings stop short of total self-destruction.
I asked further if this new letter would represent the sixth vowel following A, E, I, O and U. Pythagoras said it
would merge quite possibly with the A. I had read in this other Numerology book something about a new language
emerging along with the twenty-seventh letter. He said that the vowels would be changed but in the meantime there
will be certain changes in the language and they would include all the major nationalities and theirwe call it [Efru],
which would be like aI want to say it in your words, but it is very hard.
Here he paused. It would be like a much compromised dialect and it would be
principally English. The language and the meaning of the words will not change but
S uccess always there will be additions to language from other cultures and that will compromise the
follows steps of understanding of everyone.
The vocabulary of beings like Pythagoras is not unlike that of individuals of high
preparation. intellect and learning on this level. Many of my conversations with beings like
Pythagoras have left me with a need to do some contemplating on my own. It does
seem to me that a new letter that is associated with the A would carry great energies for new beginnings. Success always
follows steps of preparation and it would seem that the inhabitants of this planet have to make some major positive
changes to earn that bonus.

The Numerology Chart

Finally, we reach the Numerology Chart! This is what you have been waiting patiently for. If you have done your
homework, you have a fairly decent idea as to what the numbers mean. Remember, as your consciousness grows so will
your understanding of the numbers. They are not just numbers but energy forces that are a viable part of the very core
of all existence and a universal expression of spiritual values.
This chapter features the basic Numerology Chart that I use in teaching. It is composed of twelve basic elements.
The hand-done version is the type I relied on prior to acquiring my first computer. For some time now, I have enjoyed
the time-saving benefits of the Widening Horizons software programs offered by my friend Larry Malakoff, owner of
the company. This technology allows me to make changes and multiple-page numerology charts and in-depth
interpretations, making notations throughout the pages to add my personal intuitive input. This co-operative method
saves me time and energy, and makes for affordable Numerology Chart interpretations.
Following the Numerology Chart is an example of the computerized printout of a persons Progression Chart, also
available from Widening Horizons. The biggest problem used to be the mathematical errors in adding numerical values
for vowels, consonants, birthdates, etc.
The process of hand printing or typing the Progression Chart or Life Script was especially time-consuming and
required perfect concentration. It was also a drain on the brain. A computerized Progression Chart is a must! As I hand
print each letter or number of my basic Numerology Chart I touch more deeply with the meaning of each one. My
sensitivity or intuition is more creative and expansive.
In addition, prior to speaking with someone regarding their chart interpretation, I always ask permission of that
person to enter their energy field. This allows me to get closer to them and obtain a deeper, clearer interpretation of
their numbers. Everyone has an energy field surrounding them and it is a very personal and unique possession and a
safeguard as well. I always ask my guides to reinforce my energy field each day as a protection against negative energies
of any kind. So, my Numerology Charts are a combination of my own forms and modern technology.
The old and the new can still work together in many ways to gain knowledge and
understanding and there is a difference between these two words. No matter how professional

the need to be of service to our fellow beings. Numerology opens many doors that lead to
personal success but there is a price to be paid. Knowledge is a gift that is meant to be shared. The more you share, the
more you will receive. It is a message I have been hearing since I first met Pythagoras.

The Numerology ChartThe Twelve Elements

All the terms used by the many Numerologists to denote various components of a chart do cause confusion and that
is unfortunate. But each Numerologist has his or her own reasons for using different names for the meaning of vowels,
consonants, numbers or configurations. The Y and W are sometimes treated as vowels. I use the Y as a vowel in certain
cases when there is no other vowel present in a syllable, such as the name Mary. But I never use the W as a vowel. I do
not believe that every syllable requires a vowel, nor does Pythagoras. There are varying opinions regarding how to
deal with multiple names or hyphenated names.
Simply look at the final numbers and see if they match the personality and patterns of behavior of the charted person.
Add a generous amount of common sense. That is the true test of the numerical method!

The Twelve Elements of a Numerology Chart

I have pared the components of a basic Numerology Chart to twelve elements. I have seen more than twenty-four
components but for the sake of simplicity, these twelve are more than adequate, even for me. From time to time, I scan
some of the others for research purposes (and curiosity).
You can always find a different perspective or equation when working with numbers, but my focus is on spiritual
and personal growth issues. If you can grasp the meaning of the numbers and apply their meanings to your everyday
life, you will have accomplished a great deal and responded to my purpose in writing this book.
Dont push too hard studying the numbers or any of the charts. Relax and enjoy the process, and the meaning of
each number will come to you naturally. As time goes by, you will get new insights into the number meanings, especially
as they relate to you. The secret is motivation and attitude. That is the way it all works. You will never feel bored by the
numbers because as your consciousness expands, so will your understanding.
The Numerology Chart is simply about the vowels and consonants in your full birth name and birth-date. Thats it!
Its all about the letters and numbers that are present in your full name and birth-date versus the ones that are absent.
Further, its about the order, placement, and amount of these letters and numbers throughout the Basic Chart. The
twelve elements that are listed below will be explained further on the next page with a listing of other terms they are
known by.

Element One Vowels ................................................................ Motivating Element


Element Two Consonants ........................................................ Sleeping Self
Element Three All Letters .......................................................... Synchronized Self
Element Four Karmic Lessons .................................................. Past Life Mistakes
Element Five Life Path ............................................................ Type of Overall Life Events
Element Six Total Essence ...................................................... All Letters Plus Life Path
Element Seven Points of Intensification...................................... How Often Numbers Appear
Element Eight Pinnacles and Challenges.................................... Experiences From Birth-Date
Element Nine Personal & Universal Numbers .......................... Birth Month + Day + Current Year
Element Ten Pythagorean Matrix ............................................ Birth-Date Configuration
Element Eleven Your Birthday Number ...................................... Meaning of Your Special Day
Element Twelve Progression Chart .............................................. Life Script From Your Full Name

We covered the Pythagorean Matrix in the previous chapter because like the Personal and Universal Numbers, they
are great warm-up exercises and can be done rather quickly. This will increase your confidence level and make it easier
to construct the actual formal Numerology Chart. Various Numerologists use different names to denote Vowels,
Consonants, All Letters, Life Path and the birth date configuration that I refer to as the Pythagorean Matrix. The names
of the other six elements are more universally used by the Numerologists I am familiar with. Use the terms that you are
comfortable with.
Paul G. Minar 71

Element OneVowels

They are the Motivating Element and represent how you perceive the things you create in life. Vowels are the inner
seeds of yearning for self-recognition or expression. Pythagoras describes vowels this way: They are the link or the
bridge, and without that assistance the person has a difficult, a very difficult time. Some Numerologists call them the
Soul Urge, Hearts Desire, Motivation Number or Inner Self Number.
The only time I use the Y as a vowel is when there is no other vowel in a syllable and there is an E sound, such as
the names Harry or Mary. With a name like Yves, the Y is a consonant because there is only one syllable and it contains
the vowel E. Not every syllable has to have a vowel in it. Without vowels, names take on a harsher sound.

Element TwoConsonants

Pythagoras introduced the term Sleeping Self to me. The consonants represent the more obvious outward
expression of abilities, skills, mannerisms or habits. Pythagoras compares consonants to roses in a garden: they add
a great deal to the personality but they have thorns that can stop a person cold if a person is not aware of what could
happen. But consonants are also like books on a bookshelf: if you dont take them out and read them, you do not get
the message.

Element ThreeAll Letters

By adding all the vowels and consonants together, you get a composite expression of how you are perceived by others.
The focus here is on your abilities and talents rather than actual personality. Its easier to grasp a persons outward talents
(Element Two) and personality (Element Six) than the inner self as expressed in the vowels (Element One).
Pythagoras calls this name total the Synchronized Self.
Other names you might come across are Heart Self, Expression Number, Quiescent Self or Power Number. Being a
composite of two elements allows for a certain amount of mystery because the vowels are a hidden quality.
Pythagoras also ties the Synchronized Self number to our mission in life, completing the triad of vowels,
consonants and all letters. By thoughtfully examining all of the vowels and consonants, we can see the tools we have to
work with. I say thoughtfully deliberately because we need to look within and discover what we came here to do. Some
of us have more serious missions to accomplish while others are here to lend their energies to those around them and
to the planet.
For some, this is a lifetime where they can just be. Perhaps it follows a more strenuous previous life and this is an
opportunity to enjoy the gift of life.

Element FourKarma

Karma is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the world. In the past, it was an eye for an eye and that belief
is still held by some people. Karma simply represents mistakes from a past life. They can be minor or extremely serious.
In the old west, a murder, or in some cases, horse stealing was cause for swift punishment in the form of hanging the
culprit. In some parts of the world, a thief can have his hands severed today.
Karma is represented by the missing number or numbers from 1 to 9 in a persons full name. It is more significant
if the missing number or numbers are from the middle name because of the emotional impact of the middle name. The
first name relates to our personal physical world and the last name represents our spiritual heritage from our father.
This planet is known as the planet of emotions and is where we incarnate for the purpose of learning how to deal
with them. But no one on this level knows the full scope of anothers karma. Also, karma sometimes skips lifetimes,
appearing at a time when we can best deal with it.
In my experience doing Numerology Charts it is rare to find someone with no karmic lessons but that person
generally has been helping someone close to them who needs guidance and support. As we go through life, we eliminate
72 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

karma by correcting past mistakes and can pick up fresh karma in some other area of our personal conduct. Its all about
balance. No one is perfect so it is best to treat others as you would like to be treated and not worry too much about
karma.
When one person kills another, karma is instantly created and the killer will have to do something to balance the
scales again, but that does not mean that he or she will be killed in a future life. Besides the act of killing, the victims
life has been interrupted and certain tasks or situations cannot be accomplished in this lifetime. The victim will receive
special consideration in the next incarnation to complete what is necessary. The perpetrator must perform whatever
tasks are necessary on this level to compensate for the trauma done to the victims life and the lives of loved ones who
were affected.
God will judge the killer and determine the type of karma to be worked out. It may be swift or may take a great deal
of time to complete, perhaps even a distant lifetime. But essentially, the karma is over as soon as the killer has completely
come to terms with the taking of a life by realizing the full extent of the transgression and being truly remorseful. Words
of regret alone are not sufficient. They must come from the heart and soul of the person.
I know of two individuals who killed one another in a duel in a previous life. In this life
experience, they killed each other with words until mutual understanding and love ended
A ccept karma the karmic carryover. We have all done some pretty bad things during our past life
as a natural part experiences so we should not be too hasty in judging others. Accept karma as a natural
part of growth and development over a long period of life experiences. The quicker we
of growth. learn, the easier life becomes and we can move on to activities that are more productive.
In todays world, justice systems require punishment for crimes committed, especially
serious ones, and rehabilitation is not always an option.
God does not punish. God does not exact revenge. God rehabilitates. He does, however, mete out certain kinds of
life experiences that are designed to help an individual get a clear picture of any transgressions and some of these
experiences can be harsh. As long as that person refuses to acknowledge the error of his or her ways, the unpleasant
conditions will continue and it may require many life experiences.
After death (or transition) special celestial beings assist us in evaluating the past life behavior and in cooperation
with our higher self designate future life experiences accordingly. So we also have a hand in determining the nature of
future conditions. In the climate of the afterlife perspective, it is easier for us to be more objective in determining exactly
what type of experiences we need to balance those scales.
No matter how horrible a persons pattern of behavior has been there will come a time when the scales will be
balanced. I do not believe in a place called Hell and I certainly do not believe in eternal damnation. In biblical times
God allowed the spiritual leaders to use the phrase fires of hell in order to communicate to the people a message
designed to get their attention. And at that time, that was the only way to get their attention.
Our consciousness today does not warrant that kind of message, though some belief systems still preach hellfire and
damnation. That spark of Gods divinity that is our essence also assures us of ultimate reconciliation. I do believe that
hell is a condition that we create for ourselves and the severity of certain designated places can indeed be a hell of an
ordeal.
There is a place designated in the afterlife where certain spirits are placed that has various levels of existence and these
are miserable places indeed. They are in keeping with the status of each person when they make their transition. This
place is for those who have made serious transgressions in their previous lives and simply incarnating again and
assuming karma would not be the proper resolution to their predicament. This is not punishment from Godit
amounts to self-punishment. The length of time they remain there depends on how long it takes them to totally come
to grips with what they have done. You made your bed, now lie in it would best describe this unfortunate situation.
On the reverse side, those individuals who have earned the right to be placed in one of the levels of the place known
as heaven will find themselves occupying a far more pleasant set of conditions. We will discuss this wondrous place
in chapter eighteen, Reincarnation.
The missing number or numbers from 1 to 9 in your full birth name. That number or numbers represents your
karma. Karmic numbers indicate the type of lesson or lessons needed to correct the mistakes of one or more past lives.
Paul G. Minar 73

Examine the missing number or numbers and study the meaning by examining all the aspects of the number or
numbers from chapter six, The Meaning of the Numbers. Self-examination is the key. You will know if you look
sincerely. Everyone has karma to deal with. It is simply part of life. We also have other weaknesses to deal with, ones we
accumulate along the way. The energies of this period in time are specially designed to help us get rid of old patterns
that we have dealt with over many lifetimes but one or two old patterns show up as karma this time. An excessive
number of karmic lessons indicate a desire to take on many challenges that require strong discipline. More than two
karmic lessons is not the norm in my experience. Three karmic lessons are not uncommon. I have seen as many as five
and that individual has taken on quite a number of challenges that require great discipline.

Element FiveLife Path

By adding the numbers of the month, day and year of birth we reach the Life Path number. This number governs
the type of events an individual will encounter throughout a lifetime. By looking up (or remembering) the meaning of
that single number (except for 11, 22, or perhaps 33), one can understand why certain kinds of events or experiences
have been happening on an ongoing basis. There is also a karmic connection, so compare those two sets of numbers for
a better understanding of what your life is all about. This is a clue to ones life purpose or mission. To better understand
this subject of life purpose, I would recommend a consultation with an experienced Numerologist. According to
Pythagoras, a persons Life Path can change, and more than once!
It all depends on your contract for this lifetime. Prior to incarnating, we plan our Basic Life Script and some of us
have one that is more flexible than most people. Especially in these chaotic times, flexibility is very necessary, especially
for those who feel a sense of service to humanity.
Free will has a great deal to do with ones Life Path also. We cant evade responsibilities that are a necessary part of
our growth simply by changing our Life Path, However, if it is for our greater good or to help our fellow beings or the
planet, then a change is good.
How do you know what number to assign to a new Life Path? For one thing, the type of events will change and you
will feel you are going in a different direction, that you have made one or more major decisions about what you want
to accomplish in life.
Remember you are not alone. You have guides and teachers to assist you and a Higher Self to guide you. If you are
really at one with the numbers then you can feel their influence at any time. If not, then practice. Start with keeping
track of your Personal Day and Personal Month. Keep a journal and look back over the previous or current Personal
Year number also. Some people go through life never knowing what they really want to accomplish. Others know who
they are and where they are going.
Understanding your numbers provides you with an edge because it provides you with a personal blueprint. We have
spent a great deal of time on this subject of Life Path, but it is a profound study and well worth a lot of contemplation
74 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

on your part. This element of the Numerology Chart is sometimes called the Birth Force or Destiny Number. The word
destiny sounds too much like something unchangeable for me. Free will is always present.

Element SixTotal Essence

It is also known as the Maturity Number, the Reality Number and the Ultimate Goal Number among others. It is
not a number that is intended to support the latter days of a persons life. Rather, it is a number that grows with you as
you mature according to your needs and understanding. By combining all the letters of your full name (Synchronized
Self ) with your Life Path, you will have a greater sense of who you are and where you are going.
One of the greatest misconceptions in life is the expectation that we are to have completed our goals before reaching
those golden years of retirement. In reality, some of us do not begin to see our mission unfold until we are senior
citizens. Its all about Gods timing, with that magnificent overview He has of life on earth. We are never too old to
succeed in a worthwhile endeavor. This awareness of who we are and where we are going becomes stronger as we
experience life, depending how we handle the experiences or challenges life provides. We are, after all, talking about our
mission in life as well as the type of events or Life Path we will encounter. These two elements will shape the outward
personality.
We are always a product of outside influences, how we handle them plus the genes we inherit. That is why I call this
element the Total Essence of a person. It may take a while for this outward personality to really take shape. In our youth,
some of us tend to be a bit shy. Others demonstrate more self-confidence early on. It doesnt matter. Each of us has to
maintain our own pace in life (like the tortoise and the hare). Individual accomplishment is not always recognized by
others because it depends on how we define accomplishment.
Remember, each lifetime is different. Each time, we play a different role depending on what kind of experiences we
need for our personal development. We have all played a wide variety of roles from the lowest in social standing to
royalty. Regardless of ones standing in life, a very good clue as to the real identity of an individual is the amount of
poise they demonstrate. Highly evolved spirits may not be aware of their real status but their good deeds are noted on
a higher level.

Paul G. Minar 75

When looking at how often numbers appear in your name remember they are there for a purpose: to indicate the
state of balance existing in your name and to indicate your strong and weak points so you will know how to focus your
energies to compensate where possible.
Look at these numbers in relation to your karmic lessons and as they relate to all the numbers in your chart.
Generally, your birth date contains some of the numbers needed to help balance this equation.
Also, look at the numbers to see how often they appear, thereby affecting your abilities and goals. Then start
changing your patterns of behavior to create the balance or spread of numbers that you need. Dont do show and tell
with anyone else regarding your numbers, no matter where they appear on your Numerology Chart. Your numbers are
unique because they provide the experiences you need in this lifetime. No one individual has a better chart because
the numbers seem to be more favorable.
Many highly evolved souls or spirits hide their true spiritual development and do their earthly work quietly and
unnoticed. However, within a family group or to see the comparative differences between people in a relationship, it is
helpful to compare numbers for the purpose of understanding and helping one another.

Element EightPinnacles and Challenges

Pinnacles represent the four main categories of life experiences within the guiding framework of our Life Path,
obtained by adding our birth month, day and year. They indicate precisely how we should deal with these experiences
or events to produce positive results and maximum growth and to successfully carry out the plan of our Life Path.
Our Personal Year, Personal Month and Personal Day numbers deal with what type of experiences or events will
occur. Change is progress and the varying numerical experiences provide the necessary range of experiences, like the
variety of musical instruments that produce a balanced symphony.
Remember, we choose our name and birth-date before incarnating in order to accomplish our individual quests.
These life experiences are grouped in nine-year cycles and the exact time we leave one cycle and enter another depends
on astrological influences as well as the Personal Year number.
The First Pinnacle represents the Spring of your lifethe youthful aspect.
The Second Pinnacle represents the Summer of life when you assume responsibility, start a career or raise a family.
The Third Pinnacle represents middle age and maturity of thinkingthe Autumn of life.
The Fourth Pinnacle represents the Winter of lifetime to take stock of our experiences and be free of the
distractions and responsibilities associated with them, be more reflective and concerned with the needs of humanity. Its
a time to share.
In figuring the Pinnacles, we write (left to right) the numeric value of the month, day and year of our birth.

First Pinnacle = the sum of the digits of the month and day of birth.
Second Pinnacle = the sum of the digits of the day and year of birth.
Third Pinnacle = the addition of the First and Second Pinnacles.
Fourth Pinnacle = the sum of the digits of the month and year of birth.

In figuring the Challenges, we do the reverse of the above. We subtract all the digits.

The Four Cycles of Life

Now, we must figure the timing of the Four Cycles of Life. We start with the number 36, which is the sum of four
nine-year cycles. It takes thirty-six years minus our Life Path number to complete phase one of our basic learning. It is
not necessary to focus on the smaller nine-year cycles though each nine years represents a special period of growth.
Next, subtract the Life Path number from 36 to arrive at the number representing the time frame for the cycle of
the First Pinnacle (the year it ends). Next, add nine years to this age and you have the year the Second Pinnacle ends.
Then add another nine years to that age. You now have completed three cycles of the Pinnacle Numbers.
76 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The fourth cycle covers the rest of your life beginning with the year after the fourth cycle ends. Of course, these same
cycles are influenced by the Challenge numbers, governing the obstacles or weaknesses to be overcome in order to
succeed.

CYCLES:

First 36-Life Path ( ) =

Second Plus Nine Years =

Third Plus Nine Years =

Fourth Balance of Life =

= ___ (Life Path)

You can choose how to deal with the


Challenge period of your life. This
requires a great amount of reflection.
Paul G. Minar 77

Element NinePersonal and Universal Numbers

Chapter seven as you have already seen goes into detail regarding the meaning of these numbers and the equations
used to calculate them. Unlike any other part of the Numerology Chart, this type of chart deals with each year, month
and day based on your birth date. The Progression Chart (Element Twelve) shows your Life Script in terms of the way
each letter of your name is played out year after year.
But the Personal and Universal Numbers depend entirely on combining the month and day of your birth with the
current year. They show the numerical influences of each calendar year, the twelve months within that year and each
day of the month. These influences have nothing to do with your name. They have everything to do with influences
outside and independent of your name. However, all numerical influences work together for your benefit. Again, by
knowing the meaning of the numbers you can be like the concert master getting the best performance out of all of them,
throughout your personal chart.

Element TenThe Pythagorean Matrix

In the previous chapter, you saw how all the birth date numbers are placed inside of nine circles that form a special
grid. When interpreted correctly they present an accurate view of a persons personality, behavioral patterns, strengths
and weaknesses. As I mentioned previously, no one can have all the spaces filled. As with the Points of Intensification,
these numbers change each lifetime just as the name changes. Hopefully, you have had an opportunity to practice with
this numerical grid. I include it with each Numerology Chart that I do. It is the quickest to complete of any numerical
equation.

Element ElevenYour Birthday Number

In this book, I will not dwell too much on the meaning of birthday numbers because I have already explained the
meaning of all the numbers contained in a calendar month. Therefore, the same principles apply to you in terms of your
special day. Very shortly, I will spend more time explaining the relevance of the birthday numbers as opposed to
numbers in general and I will recommend an author who delves more deeply into this fascinating subject. To do justice
to birthday numbers I would have to double the number of pages in this book. God provides the planet with a constant
symphony of numbers and numbers within numbers. Just as each year brings with it a unique batch of babies, so
does each month and day. Each month also has an astrological name and meaning which I include in my Numerology
Charts as an added perspective.

Element TwelveThe Progression Chart

You will find an example of a computerized Progression Chart in this chapter. My good friend, Isabelle Zaccardi, has
allowed me to use her name and birth date as an example. Pythagoras considers the Progression Chart to be a very
profound part of any Numerology Chart. In fact, I do not initially provide one as part of a consulting session, though
I will refer to it as it relates to other aspects of a clients Numerology Chart. When my clients have had time to digest
the rest of the chart and demonstrated that they have done their homework regarding the numbers, then and only then
do I make the Progression Chart available. This may take several weeks. It all depends on how serious my clients are
about their numbers.
This is your Life Script and it is extremely important that you do not look at it as some kind of prediction formula
for the future. It is also very important that you do not misinterpret the past or the present in looking at the Progression
Chart. I cannot interpret a persons Progression Chart properly without first discussing all the other elements of the
chart. Then the Life Script numbers can be viewed with more accuracy and with more understanding. While I have
tried to present numbers in a way that you can more easily understand them, the full meaning takes time to developa
great deal of time.
78 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The meaning of the numbers on your Progression Charteven though those numbers may be identical to those of
another persondo not have the same interpretation because no two people on the face of the earth have totally
identical numbers. Even if the names are identical, the date and time of birth is probably different or the sex is different.
No two spirits are identical, not even twins. I will have more to say about this unique part of the Numerology Chart
later in this chapter, following the Numerology Chart. Widening Horizons is the software company I use.
Earlier, I stated that I do not initially provide the Progression Chart to my clients unless they already understand the
meaning of these letters and numbers. So if you obtain this information on your own, please seek the expertise of a
professional Numerologist so that he or she can relate this Life Script to the rest of your Numerology Chart. It is like
trying to read an architectural blueprint when you dont fully understand all the symbols and scale. This is your Personal
Blueprint as well as Life Script! Study it carefully and dont attempt to look too far into the future influences, for free
will is always present.

How you live each day is what counts,


for it affects the quality of life you earn for the future!

Isabelles Numerology ChartThe Twelve Elements Explained

Element OneVowels
Isabelles Vowels added left to right total a 6.
Isabelle is a 20/2, Rebecca is an 11, and Zaccardi is an 11 (total = 24/6).
I call Element One the Motivating Element. It indicates how Isabelle views the things she creates. It is sometimes called
the Soul Urge, Hearts Desire or Motivation Number. The 6 permeates her life. She is a spiritual counselor, constantly
giving of herself. Her family members are very important to her but everyone she works with is family, too.

Element TwoConsonants
Isabelles Consonants added left to right, total a 26/8.
Isabelle is a 9, Rebecca is a 17/8, and Zaccardi is 27/9 (total = 26/8).
I call Element Two the Sleeping Self. It generally indicates the abilities or talents we express outwardly. However, there
is a secretive side to the consonants. In the case of Isabelle, a first time meeting with her does not reveal the decisiveness
in her personality. She is very modest and low-key. Note that the 8 is arrived at by way of the gentle 2 expressing with
the compassionate 6. The power of the 8 sort of sneaks up on you.

Element ThreeAll Letters


All the Vowels and Consonants added left to right total a 5.
Isabelle is a 29/11/2, Rebecca is a 28/10/1, and Zaccardi is a 38/11/2 (total = 5).
I call Element Three the Synchronized Self. It is the synchronization or working together of the first two elements.
Pythagoras stated that this number is a clue to our mission in life. Some Numerologists do not reduce the 11 as I
did with her first and last name. I believe that we all have a special contract in each lifea special commitment or
assignment. When it appears as the first sum total, I leave it alone. Isabelle is very flexible and accepts change as an
important part of life. She is a good traveler/adventurer. The 5 is arrived at by way of the gentle 2 and the creative
expression of the 3, a subtle approach.

Element FourKarmic Lessons


Isabelles full name letters are missing the numbers 6 and 7, which is a mystery to me. Obviously, she has to live out
the experiences that those two numbers represent. These karmic numbers were explained earlier in this chapter. In my
discussions with Pythagoras, he stated that some highly evolved souls are permitted to live out the karma of another
soul who is in the spirit world and is unable to incarnate at this time to fulfill any karmic debts. This is a rare occurrence
and I have encountered it only one other time. This is a great act of love and is permitted by the Supreme Being as a
special circumstance. After working closely with Isabelle since 1978, I can attest to the fact that she personifies the
positive aspects of the 6 (Harmony, Love and Responsibility) and the positive aspects of the 7 (Spirituality, Calmness
and Wisdom).

Element FiveLife Path


Isabelles Life Path is 9, the Universal Number of the humanitarian and the number of understanding and wisdom. It
is also the number of selflessness and sacrifice.

Element SixTotal Essence


Arrived at by adding the Synchronized Self number plus the Life Path number, it is a more complete picture of your
personality. Isabelle exemplifies the 5: a designated workhorse for this century.

Element NinePersonal and Universal Numbers

They influence each year, month and day of your life. However, your Personal Year, Month and Day numbers are
the most important because they influence your personal world as opposed to global events in general, represented by
the Universal Year, Month, and Day numbers.
The Personal Year number is calculated by adding your birth month (reduced if two digits) plus the birthday
(reduced if two digits) plus the current four-digit year reduced to produce a final single digit.
The Personal Month number is calculated by adding the Personal Year number to the chronological number of any
given month (reduced) to again produce a final single digit.
The Personal Day number is calculated by adding the Personal Month number to the chronological day number in
the same manner.
The Universal Year number is calculated by adding the four digits of the current year and then reducing them to a
single digit (and in this case, I also reduce Master Numbers).
2003 reduces to 5, 2004 = 6, 2005 = 7, 2006 = 8, 2007 = 9, 2008 = 10/1, and so forth.
The Universal Month number = Universal Year plus current month.
The Universal Day number = Universal Month plus current day.

Sample Chart for Isabelle Zaccardi, born on October 9, 1925:


Universal Year number for 2004: 2 + 0 + 0 + 4 = 6
Personal Year number for 2004: 1 + 9 + 6 (2004) = 16, which reduces to 7

October ....................10 (1) + (7) = (8) (7)
November ................11 (2) + (7) = (9) (8)
December..................12 (3) + (7) = (1) (9)

* In this case, September is a double intensity month because the Personal Month number is the same as the Personal
Year number. Its a math thing.

Element ElevenYour Birthday Number


Isabelle Zaccardi, October 9, 1925

Not every birthday 9 is the same. Each month there is a different astrological influence to add to this number. For
Isabelle it is the sign of Libra. They are known for their impartiality, expansive thinking and integrity. They make good
judges and mediators. Sometimes they are criticized for not being more decisive. With Isabelle, the issue is more often
what restaurant to choose for lunch. She will say, Oh, you choose.
Its not that Libras are incapable of making the decision. They simply are being very gracious by allowing others the
privilege of choosing. The 9 is the universal number of service, so that characteristic is present in a 9 person who lives
according to the positive aspects of this powerful number. The negative 9 person, of course, is just the opposite. An
October 9 person functions within the energies of the 10 calendar month so those 10/1 energies provide an extra boost
for their strong wills and determination. They tend to be well educated and attract talented and cultured people. The
9 person is very philanthropic as well. So remember, all the number characteristics of the 9 apply to all 9 birthdays but
the personality changes according to the astrological influence. A July 9 Cancer person, for example, is more emotional.
A March 9 Aries person is more energetic and has the creative expression that accompanies the third month of the
calendar year. Since astrology signs sometimes overlap from one month to another the personality sometimes merges
with another sign, known as being on the cusp.
I always enjoy the company of a 9 person regardless of their astrological influence. Every birthday number is a great
number and for the birthday person its a great day to be born! Each day of the year produces a unique addition to the
human race. It is a unique contribution to the world.
Look elsewhere in your Numerology Chart for a repeat of your birthday number such as the Life Path number or
total of the vowels and consonants. When your birthday number is the same as your Personal Month or Personal year
number there is intensity or special focus on that special day so enjoy it! All these different birthday numbers are part
of Gods geometry and ensure diversity.

Element TwelveThe Numerology Chart


Sample Progressed Chart Explained

First, you will notice that the subjects entire lifetime in chronological order occupies the top boxes from left to
right. To put this entire formula or configuration in a proper perspective, each number represents a year of a persons
life. Because of practical considerations of space using the computer printout process, this layout goes to the year 91. It
is not an attempt to define how long anyone will live. We can continue this formula for any length of time.
There are two pages of this Progression Chart, and each page is divided into top and bottom segments. At first, it
looks like a confusing bunch of letters and numbers, but lets start at the far left margin and note that there are eleven
boxes, starting with AGE and ending with CHAL. Now I will explain each box:
AGEJust that, your age from 1 to 91. Note that this chart starts counting not at 0, but at 1. We forget that
when we have a birthday, we are really celebrating the end of one year. Yet we tell people we are that same age
for another year.
TRANAn abbreviation for Transits, representing the letters from first, middle, and last names, and lasting for
a period of years equal to the number value of each Letter displayed. (Some Numerology Charts are set up to
begin the age at 0, but I prefer to start at 1.)
ESSAn abbreviation for Essences, representing the sum of the letter values for each of the Transits, reduced
to a single digit or Master Number (two digits).
AS CYAn abbreviation for Astro Cycle. Age 0 is always equal to 1. The next year is a 12, with each succeeding
year equal to one less than the previous year. This continues until the Astro Cycle equals 1 again. The entire cycle
then repeats itself, from 12 to 1, until the end of the progressed chart. This is a numerical equation I do not use
as part of my Numerology Charts, but I do need to explain what these letters mean, because they come with this
printout. (Ref: The Numbers of Life, page 260, by Kevin Quinn Avery, 1977, Dolphin Books.)
AG CSAn abbreviation for Age Consciousness, or Race Consciousness as it is sometimes called, calculated by
adding the present age to the next year age and reducing to a single digit. (Re: Numerology, The Romance in Your
Name, page 218, by Dr. Juno Jordan, 1965, De Vorss & Company.) Again, I do not use this numerical equation
in my charts, but you may explore it on your own.
YEARThe calendar year corresponding to AGE. The following 5 aspects change on January 1 of each year.
P YEARAn abbreviation for Personal Year. We explored this in chapter seven.
U YEARAn abbreviation for Universal Year. Again, see chapter seven.
CYCLESince I do not use the above AS CY or AG CS information, for the purpose of my Numerology Chart
interpretation, you can ignore CYCLE here. I explained the Cycles as part of the Pinnacles/Challenges chart in
chapter seven.
PINNAn abbreviation for Pinnacles, which we explored as Element Eight.
CHALAn abbreviation for Challenges, which we also explored in Element Eight.

To avoid confusion you can ignore AS CY, AG CS


and CYCLE in this chart.
You can see why it helps to have a professional Numerologist assist in explaining this chart that is so full of letters
and numbers, and to explain what the various abbreviations mean as well. It is very important not to look too far into
the future influences, though there is nothing to fear in your future. There are no bad things coming up, only
experiences that are sometimes challenging. The letters I and R have a nine-year length so it is natural for your eyes to
automatically scan those years, and that is fine. For the most part, I prefer to stay within a range of three to five years
back or forward. The future is always more compelling, however.
Paul G. Minar 87

As I have already said, your actions today are what influence your future. Act in a positive way now and you will
inherit the best aspects of each letter or number in the future.
Now, lets take a look at Isabelle Rebecca Zaccardis Progressed Chart, starting with, for example, her age in 2003,
which is 78. (By the way, it is helpful to use a highlight marker and draw a vertical line from top to bottom on the chart,
starting with the AGE box at the top of the chart and ending at the CHAL box at the bottom.) At age 78 Isabelles
vertical perspective looks like this:

AGE: 78

TRANSIT: L (3)
C (3)
Z (8) (Reduced from 26)

ESSENCE: 14/5

YEAR: 2003

PERSONAL
YEAR: 6 (Reduced from 15)

UNIVERSAL
YEAR: 5 (Adding 2003)

PINNACLE: 9

CHALLENGE: 7

To get a broader perspective you need to compare this single year, with all of the vertical numbers, to the preceding
years, and to the future ones. This takes time and diligence. Like a successful football coach, you must be able to scan
the entire field of participants.

The Absolute Level


92 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The Absolute Level

On September 20th, 1996, I had the pleasure of a channeled discussion with Pythagoras in which I wanted some
information on whether I could apply numerological interpretations for a highly evolved being such as a Master Teacher
or Ascended Master Teacher (the highest level). These are the Saints, Sages and other luminaries of the Higher Realms
of existence who no longer need to incarnate on this planet and do not have dense physical bodies as we do.
Pythagoras answered my question in this way:
The Absolute Level is the level of attainment that a Master Teacher or Ascended Master Teacher attains, or
nothingness. When one has completed everything that has been assigned to them and they have reached the end of
their travels along the Godhead, then they have achieved the state of nothingness from which all things are derived.
Therefore, they can either start over again or move on to another designated pattern. However, they have completed
everything that has been assigned to them and they can move into the Fathers Mansion so to speak. Have you not
heard of Nirvana?
I cannot interpret from a numerological perspective the names these beings are known by in the Higher Realms
because those special names have nothing to do with the letters of our alphabet, which we utilize to choose names prior
to incarnating in order to accommodate certain life lessons and karma. Some of the Saints are known by earthly given
names that are commonly used today but they are also known by other special names in the Higher Realms for they
had many incarnations we are not aware of and many assignments in other parts of the cosmos. They are also much
older than most of us realize. They did not achieve their status on the basis of a single life on this planet, regardless of
their exemplary spiritual accomplishments.
The name Jesus can be interpreted on this level because it was given to His mother, Mary, by an angel and that
name was intended to be an earthly one. It means savior and is a very popular name in the Spanish culture. However,
when Jesus became Jesus, the Christ the new name took on the energies of the Higher Realms. It means the anointed
one and is an official title. It also means the master of love. In my many conversations with Him through Isabelle
and the channeling process, He has always introduced Himself by saying, I am Elder Brother, and I serve. His number
is 7, the number of Perfect Man. His symbol is the 7 surrounded by a circle, symbolizing mans completion.
Finally, we reach the highest of names which is God. Using the normal methods of numerical interpretation one
might say that God equals the number 17/8. The 8 is associated on this level with power but there is no way we can
ever use Numerology to interpret the name God. This name originated on this level rather than the Higher Realms.
Pythagoras was very clear on our earthly attempts to interpret the name God, saying, It should not be done. Never
should it be done.

Numerology For Animals


By Pythagoras in Collaboration with St. Francis

On February 20, 2002, Pythagoras provided another channeling session which dealt with Numerology for
Animals and then again on April 4. I believe it would be helpful to explore the nature and characteristics of animals
before looking at their numbers and showing how their Numerology Chart is constructed. For the most part,
Pythagoras has provided numerical information for humans and animals over the years but at the previous two
channeling sessions, I presented questions regarding the nature, personality, and purpose of animals as they relate to
human beings.
Over the years, I have enjoyed many discussions regarding animals with St. Francis, known as the patron saint of
animals. Information in this chapter is the end-result of all those discussions. For reasons unknown to me, he deferred
to Pythagoras at this time. They both draw on the same Universal Mind or universal consciousness for information
so the material given here is valid regardless of the communicator. I started the February 20 session with a request for
a statement from Pythagoras about animals, and he answered in this way:

Pythagoras: The animal kingdom is composed of animals that are loved by their caretakers. Now, were
talking about animals that are partly domesticated. They conform that kingdom, and as you know, those who
have been around a long time have a certain energy around them, especially when they have come back to
serve their mastertheir master being their caretaker. Each animal has a gift to give. As you know, some take
away loneliness, some give strength to the invalids, some are protectors. They are all in different groups and
categories, but each animal fits into its own category. Does that make sense?
Paul: Yes, it certainly does. Are the non-domesticated or wild animals sort of waiting their turn to move up
to domesticated status?
Pythagoras: No, they will not, because they are not open to that kind of companionship, for they are as
trigger-haired in their personalities as some angry people are. No, they will not go into the animal kingdom
were talking about.
Paul: Do they go in if they are brought in, for example, like trained animals whose parents were wild, and
they come to this country to places like Las Vegas where they perform and work with human beings?
Pythagoras: They are more acceptable but they are never completely satisfied.
Paul: As I recall, my dog Sebastian was once a wolf. Is that an energy more amenable to becoming a
domesticated animal?
Pythagoras: Yes, but remember it had to go through many strains, many lifetimes.

At this time, I will combine all the information from Pythagoras and Saint Francis into a general narrative but
will quote directly from time to time when appropriate. In addition, I will group the various aspects of animal nature
and characteristics at this time into categories to provide a more concise visual reference for information.
Paul G. Minar 95

Animals Are All About Love

Thats right. The word love permeates their total being in a special way because, unlike humans, they only know
unconditional love. We are talking about domestic animals rather than wild ones. As Pythagoras said, there is a
difference. While our Creator loves and cares for all created animals, only the domesticated ones enjoy the
companionship of human beings and share the household with them. Wild animals that are born in captivity and are
raised from birth by humans are certainly more manageable but even their caregivers exercise caution when handling
them. By domesticated we mean for the most part those animals found in the household, farm animals, and those in
a petting zoo. Some mammals and birds also fall into this category. Dolphins are a good example of a domesticated
mammal, though they cannot live in a household or share a swimming pool. Their intelligence and communication
skills are phenomenal and they are friendly to humans in the wild as well. Birds are unique because some of them can
mimic their caregivers and talk. I am not qualified to get into the subject of comparative intelligence among members
of the animal kingdom but I will present some fascinating stories regarding animal behavior and intelligence as we go
along.

Animal Souls

Animals do not have a soul, as we know a soul, because their energy is different from humans. The spirit is the
incarnating aspect or expression of the soul. The soul encompasses the totality of all our incarnated spirits. Animal
energy is not refined enough to possess a human-like soul, because they do not have a spiritual essence as humans do.
However, if you equate unconditional love with spirituality, then they certainly are spiritual. I do not believe that
animals can incarnate as human beings or that we can incarnate as animals. However, we all know animals whose
behavior is on a much higher level than many people are. Animals demonstrate a level of love, trust and service that
places them very close to their Creator and He designated St. Francis as their special protector. The main thing is we
will never be separated from the animals we love. They are able to join us in the place we call Heaven or the hereafter
and if we, as their caretakers, simply return their love in kind they can exercise their free will by incarnating to share
our mutual existences for all of eternity. So, there is no end to this wonderful bond.

Animal Purpose

Animals have the same basic purpose as human beings and all living things, namely to grow through experience.
Within that basic purpose, there are many sub-purposes depending on the form of life and the level of development.
Domestic animals are close to humans because they are fulfilling the need to be of service. Their sustenance is their
unending supply of love. If human beings could follow their example in relation to their development and consciousness
this would be a very peaceful world.
One of the most visible and noble examples of animal love and service would be the seeing-eye dogs, and more
recently, dogs for the hearing impaired. Dogs perform heroically as guard dogs, police dogs, rescue dogs, narcotics
search, and so on. They never think about personal danger. They do not have to have extensive training to put their life
on the line trying to save someone, because it is ingrained in them. Perhaps its a reward for being allowed to share life
with humans. It is a price they are willing to pay. They also serve as visiting ambassadors of joy for people who are ill,
confined in a home or facility. There is no end to the ways in which animals provide love and service to humans.

Animal Free Will

Animals do have free will. We can see that in our pets. Sometimes they respond to our wishes and sometimes they
dont. They also choose people they want to be friendly with. Children and dogs seem to have pretty good instincts
about adults. They both act on instincts whereas we adults have to stop and think before we act.
96 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Sometimes animals run away from home because they have been neglected or mistreated. We humans do not like
being ignored or taken for granted but we have other options and diversions. Animals are trapped in their particular
home environment and their loneliness or unhappiness is magnified by their inability to complain verbally, so they
misbehave and pay the price for it. They are only trying to make a point the best way they know how. Come to think
about it, we pretty much do the same thing to get attention at times.

Animal Communication

Animals communicate with each other in many ways. They share some forms of communication with humans such
as body language, certain sounds and the tone of their voice. Since they cannot speak, they project mental pictures to
one another, along with ESP. They have a language and radar system of their own and there are countless stories of
animals waiting at the front door for their caregivers to come home despite varying times of arrival. I even know of a
pet duck that waddled several blocks each day to meet a little boy when school was out in order to walk him home.
We use voice commands or instructions to get our animals to respond, but there is another way to communicate
silently with them and that is by projecting mental pictures to them. That is how some pet psychics communicate with
animals. Our pets do learn word association regarding certain tasks, but they would not know what a veterinarian was
talking about when, for example, the animals lungs are mentioned. The vet would have to project an image of the lungs
to the animal because those organs of breathing are located in an area the vet cannot point to. Animals do not know
what lungs are. They do not know what a heart is. It is much more difficult for a human to receive messages from an
animal in picture form or psychically because we dont have that ability as ingrained in us.
Not all psychics can communicate with animals either. It takes a special kind of telepathic energy to work with
animals and achieve consistently good results. However, it is possible for us to improve our communication skills
regarding animals, but it takes a great deal of patience. The trick here is to be able to know conclusively that an animal
has received our ESP or picture message. Obviously, if an animal responds in a definitive way we have our answer. Only
a pet psychic has this situation down pat.
At any rate, I urge caregivers to try to communicate with their pets and keep the communication lines open. Many
pet owners would have greater success if they would talk less and listen more to their pets. Look directly into their eyes
and listen for a response. If I can do it, maybe you can too.
Years ago, my pet Schnauzer caught my attention by intensely staring into my eyes and trembling all over. The
message was, I was Tina in my previous incarnation. Cant you see? I did not receive precise words, just an impression.
I visited my channel friend, Isabelle, and spoke with Saint Francis who verified that Sebastian was indeed my mix-breed
female in the previous incarnation.
There was another message that related to the intensity of Sebastians communication and that was that I must not
abandon him again. I gave Tina to a good friend who moved into my rented house because I was moving to another
city to live in an apartment. I thought I was doing the right thing because Tina already knew my friend well. I had
stipulated that I wanted Tina back if he could not care for her for any reason. However, unknown to me, he sent her
away to another state where Tina died of a heart attack. I have worked hard to erase that unpleasant memory but that
was a lesson that made me more aware of the needs of all the animals that have come into my life. I have been almost
paranoid at times to ensure that I gave more thoughtful consideration to the emotional as well as physical needs of my
pets. Animals not only love unconditionally, they are also good teachers.
If you will stop and think for a moment, Im sure you will be able to recall many instances of unusual events in your
life involving communication with your pets.

Animals and Pain

Animals, I am told, do not remember pain. They do remember the cause of the pain. They feel pain more acutely
than humans, so we need to bear that in mind when they are sick or in need of medical attention. Perhaps this sensitivity
to pain helps them as a survival mechanism. By not remembering pain, animals are not burdened by the accumulation
of all the memories of their encounters with these unpleasant experiences.
Paul G. Minar 97

You see, animals do not have an emotional body, they have an emotional nature. In chapter nine, the Basic
Chart, I listed the seven bodies that humans have. Animals have only threephysical, etheric, and cosal. Therefore,
God, in His wisdom and compassion, has provided this exemption for animals because they are not fortified enough to
deal with memory pain. Later in this chapter, we will construct the animal Numerology Chart and there you will see
that the section known as the Progression Chart is only done on the emotional level. The human chart is done on a
physical, emotional, and spiritual level.
One of the most incredible things about animal behavior involves both free will and the love aspect of animals in
regard to pain. Animals, out of love, can and do take on illnesses for their caretakers. I was able to add to my animal
research, the case of a little dog that took on a pancreatitis condition for its caregiver. I knew the dogs owner and was
told of the dogs sacrifice during a channeling session. I started a prayer campaign by telephone, calling all my friends,
regardless of their spiritual persuasions. The veterinarian said the animals chances of survival were not very good.
A week later, the dog recovered. Saint Francis said that there were so many prayers on so many levels that the little
guy decided to accept the healing energies and live. So, animals do make decisions and are motivated by the love aspect.
Also, out of love, an animal can extend its stay with a caregiver well beyond the normal expectations based on its age.
There is a commitment on the animals part to share in the life experience of a caregiver. Their departure time is also
their decision to make.

Classes Of Animals

Animals do not cross classification lines when incarnating. Dogs will never be cats and vice-versa. Birds will always
be birds. Mammals will stay in their category. A future book on animals will be a better vehicle for exploring all the
categories. It is not my purpose or need to get into all the classifications of animals at this time so I will just say that an
animals developmental needs are best served by experiencing as many of lifes challenges as possible within a single
category, just as with human beings. We stay within our category as humans, and have quite enough on our plates
incarnating in the various races, alternating as male and female of our species to enhance our growth.

Animal Reincarnation

Animals reincarnate in much the same manner as humans except that they really dont have a life of their own, so to
speak. Their life is intertwined with ours because of their commitment to serve their caregivers. Saint Francis presides
over the animal kingdom and is responsible for their overall development and well-being. He has countless celestial
helpers whose responsibility it is to watch over animals in the hereafter or Heaven. They prepare the animals for their
return to this world where their arrival, life experiences and departure depends on the needs of their caregivers.
These animals follow the incarnations of their masters for the most part. They also incarnate more often than wild
animals, depending on their commitment to their caregivers. They are also watched over on this level just as our
guardian angels protect us, but the major responsibility for their protection belongs to their masters. Animals share the
hereafter with human beings and go through schooling and retraining there that will prepare them for their next
incarnation. While they have free will, they also need assistance in their decision-making due to their limitations with
their mental processes. As with humans, there is no set time between incarnations for animals. Reincarnation is a very
complex process and only an omnipotent Creator could design and execute such a master plan.
The circumstances throughout this present lifetime are interrelated with past and
future lifetimes and an animals circumstances will coincide with the caregivers past and
future needs. Anyone who thinks we have but one life to live and then retire in heaven E
ternal life is
is in for a rude awakening when they make their transition. Eternal life is a mixture of a mixture of
work and play just as here on earth. When humans enter the hereafter realm, they are
greeted by former family members and loved ones, including former pets. work and play.
However, if a human leaves a pet behind on earth, he or she will not see the spirit of
a pets former incarnation in heaven because animals do not have a soul as we know a soul. There is no spiritual essence
to remain in heaven, but when the pets make their transition, they can expect to be reunited with former caregivers.

As I mentioned earlier, the energy of animals is not refined enough to possess a soul like the human soul. The main
thing is to remember that we will always be able to share life with our beloved animal friends, regardless of how God
has designated their basic essence. At this time, I would like to share my personal experience following the reincarnation
of a cat named Iago (pronounced ee-AH-go). He was named after the Shakespearean character from Othello who was
noted for jumping in and out of scenes. My Iago also jumped in and out of scenes in everyday life situations, delighting
in startling humans around him. He belonged to a close friend who was not particularly concerned with the topic of
reincarnation.
Iago had made his transition five years previously and had been the shop cat in a business I shared with his
caregiver. Over a period of two weeks, I kept hearing sounds of a cat in distress and I examined every nook and cranny
of the picture framing business. I went outside and looked up and down the street and up into the neighborhood
apartment windows to no avail. Two weeks later, I heard a loud cry that was definitely inside the shop, a few feet away
on the design counter. I checked to see if the two female shop cats were responsible for the sound but they were fast
asleep in the workshop. My partner was nonplussed, but I immediately telephoned my friend, Isabelle, and asked her
to look psychically at the situation.
She said Iago was ready to incarnate again but was distressed to see that he had been replaced by the two female cats
and that I should let him know mentally if he was welcome to come back. She also said that he would be my cat this
time rather than my partners. I asked for information about the logistics of his return, and was told there would be a
normal gestation period and someone would lead me to a place where he could be found.
When the birth-time was at hand, I was anxious and apprehensive about locating the new arrival and being sure of
adopting the right kitten. The sex was an unknown factor, adding to my anxiety. Twelve weeks later, I needed psychic
help to locate the kitten, but Isabelle was ill, so I telephoned my other psychically gifted friend in Phoenix, Arizona,
Kay Stahli, who saw a black and white cat transposed over a calico cat. Iago had black and white markings, so I could
look for a calico kitten, sex still unknown.
The next day I went to my veterinarians clinic to get supplies and saw a photo on the bulletin board displaying a
new litter of kittens and a calico kitten was obvious amongst the new brood. I went to the address listed and discovered
an apartment containing some two dozen cats and kittens. Astonished and confused, I again phoned Isabelle, who had
recovered from her illness, and asked if this group included the new version of Iago. After receiving a yes, I then moved
on to the task of picking the correct kitten.
The caregivers had already named all the kittens so I relayed each name to Isabelle until Katherines came up. But
Katherine was not the obvious calico kitten. Her markings were subdued. With some trepidation, I chose Katherine
and immediately took her to be examined by my vet, who recorded her color as calico without any instructions from
me.
Since then, Katherine has consistently demonstrated the exact personality traits of Iago, but has taken them to
another level. She not only darts in and out of rooms but does so at great speed. Even now at age ten, she races around
the house and up and down stairs. Iago preferred a normal pace. She appears from nowhere to play Iagos favorite game
of jumping between the bed sheets when they are changed. She insists on sneaking up on me and scaring me when I
am lying down on the bed. Her body type is identical to Iagoslike a Siamese cat.
Isabelle and Kay were right in describing her as exotic and mysterious looking with exceptional intelligence. I asked
Pythagoras why Katherine was so temperamental and had such a temper. He said that was due to her genes, because
she had such a mixed ancestry. Despite her occasional tantrums, she is extremely loving. Kay Stahli had commented on
the phone that she had never seen so much love in a cat, that she saw strong pink light radiating from Katherines
body. Pink is the color of love, whether animals or humans, and it shows up in the aura. When you communicate your
love for your pets, you also send them the color of lovepink.

Animal Names and Charts

The animal chart is done differently than a humans. The letters in their names denote different personality traits and
abilities, as with humans. The influence of the number 6 is always present though it may not show up in the name. The
Paul G. Minar 99

6 is represented by the letters F, O, and X as you saw in chapters six and nine. Obviously, not all pet names contain one
or more of these three letters but the 6 influence is always there because the love influence is always present.
Lets look now at some pet names to illustrate how this process works. Since we have spent so much time talking
about Iago and his female counterpart Katherine, an analysis and comparison of these two personalities might be a good
start. Its important to note that the final single digit from the vowels and consonants below have to be viewed not only
as the result of the combined influences of the two numbers that precede it, but as the product of those two numbers.
You have to consider each numbers influence and contribution to the end result. You have to look at the whole package.

Vowels 9 1 6 = 16/7
I A G O
Consonants 7 = 7

I A G O
All Letters 9 1 7 6 = 23/5

The Vowels total 16, which reduces to 7. Iago was truly a solitary personality. His social contacts were strictly on his
own terms. He was dignified and aloof. He demonstrated his analytical and inventive abilities by reaching up to a
doorknob with his paw and spreading his toes proceeding to twist the doorknob to open the door.
The total for the Vowels (Iagos Motivating Element) tells us how he viewed his accomplishments. This total is
arrived at by combining the individuality and resourcefulness of the 1 with the responsibility and love aspects of the 6.
The total for the Consonants (Iagos Sleeping Self ) tells us more about his abilities, as others perceived them. Here
we have a simple 7, which amplifies the 7 total of the vowels. He was the ultimate loner.
The total of the Vowels and Consonants (Iagos Synchronized Self ) represents a composite of all his personality traits
and that total is a 23/5. The 5 indicates a need for change, exploration, and freedom. It is arrived at by virtue of the
characteristics of the 2 and the 3. Cats are truly free spirits and Iago was no exception. His adventurous spirit caused
him to become an indoor cat for his own safetytoo many fights with roaming male cats. He was unpredictable. On
one occasion Iago, witnessed the verbal chastisement of a dog named Jason who shared the same household. As Jason
passed by, Iago gave the dog a swat on the behind, as if to add his endorsement of the punishment. He was the boss in
that household, and ruled over Jason and Sebastian.
In chapter nine, the Basic Chart, we talked about Malefic Numbers which are 14, 16 and 19 (some Numerologists
include the 13). These numbers are not the same as karmic ones for they represent only a notation of past mistakes,
which are to be considered as being wiped out as of this time. These karmic debts are now paid in full. As Pythagoras
said, You cannot go forward if you are always looking back. Iagos name contains both the 14 and 16.
Animals are not bound by karmic lessons. They are bound by a memory that brings them back time and again to
their caregivers. Reincarnating helps them to improve their behavioral patterns but their limited intellectual capacity
(compared to humans), absolves them of the need for the karmic attachment carried by humans.

Now, lets look at Iagos present incarnation as Katherine. What a difference!

Vowels 1 5 9 5 = 20/2
K A T H E R I N E
Consonants 11 2 8 9 5 = 35/8

K A T H E R I N E
All Letters 11 1 2 8 5 9 9 5 5 = 55/10/1

Katherines Vowels total 20, which reduces to 2. We read the 20 as the characteristics of the 2 expressing with the
characteristics of the 0.
100 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

In chapter four, Pythagoras explained the meaning of the 0 as the cosmos in action, the cosmic gate of God,
allowing the winds of change to fertilize the seeds sown by every other number. Numerologists have varying
interpretations for the 0. It is not really a number, yet it assists the numbers that accompany it, helping them in their
expression.
Katherine sees herself as the patient one (except, of course, when its her dinnertime). She is gentle and gracious
except when she is having a tantrum. This may sound contradictory, but bear in mind that numbers provide influences
not rigid results. Some of our personality quirks are in our genes and difficult to overcome whether animal or human.
She is also very thoughtful and compassionate, especially when I am not feeling well. She is reserved and sensitive.
We do not reduce the 11 from the letter K, which indicates teaching ability, and she has taught me a great deal the
past ten years. The consonants total of 8 shows her sense of authority and confidence. She is forceful and strong,
physically and emotionally. The 8 is arrived at through the creative expression of the 3 and the adaptability of the 5.
This is a very powerful combination of numbers.
The total of the vowels and consonants is a 55/10/1, showing that the independent 1 is reinforced by the double 5,
which reduces to a 10, then a 1. Katherine is extremely freedom loving and totally makes her own rules. I have to make
sure I explain my rationale to her for abiding by my house rules.
The result of all these number combinations is a 1, which is independence and innovation, among many other
attributes. It is the action number. It is courage and creative thought. Of all the cats that have come into my life,
Katherine is the most dynamic. She literally races around the house, even at the age of ten. As a tiny kitten, she could
race down a flight of stairs without missing a single one, never falling. Pythagoras singled out her gift of distracting,
and that is what our animal friends do. They have clever ways of keeping us from worrying too much or taking ourselves
too seriously.
As with humans, we can also take into account nicknames, but only as an added influence. The main chart deals
with the actual birth name. In this case, I sometimes call her Kathy. Lets see how this name compares to Katherine:

1 7 = 8
K A T H Y
11 2 8 = 21/3

If I had given her the name Kathy, she would demonstrate more of an aggressive emotional behavior due to the power
of the 8. She is quite bossy and aggressive enough, as it is. The total of Katherines vowelsa 2calms her nerves and
makes her more cooperative and tranquil. Note that I consider the Y as a vowel in this case for the same reason I
explained in chapter nine.
Now lets continue with this business of analyzing an animals name in terms of their vowels and consonants. I have
another cat named Dagmar. Her sister died recently and I will use her name as the final example of a cats name,
following Dagmar.

1 1 = 2
D A G MA R
4 7 4 9 = 24/6

D A G MA R
4 1 7 4 1 9 = 26/8

Dagmar is a large Maine Coon cat with beautiful large eyes and eyelashes. She is very exotic looking and calm. She
is also very sophisticated. She has the same 2 total of vowels as Katherine, and exhibits the same 2 characteristics as
Katherine except for temperament. She is patient, thoughtful and reserved. She sees herself as peaceful and cooperative
and has always taken the position of big sister to Daphne, who was more petite in size. At one point Dagmar weighed
eighteen pounds compared to ten pounds for Daphne.
Paul G. Minar 101

Dagmars Consonants total a 24/6. The previously mentioned attributes of the 2 combine with the practical,
organized and loyal attributes of the 4 and add up to 6. She exemplifies all the love characteristics of animals to the
highest degree. Her size adds strength and stature to her other qualities. The total of all Vowels and Consonants are
26/8, which gives her good judgment and authority. Both Dagmar and Daphne are shop cats who have always lived in
the picture framing shop. They have at times caused customers to pick up their small dogs and hold them until we could
remove the two felines who were stalking the enemy.

1 5 = 6
D A P H N E
4 7 8 5 = 24/6

D A P H N E
4 1 7 8 5 5 = 30/3

Daphne really knew she was a 6 cat in terms of Vowel totals. She was more accessible than Dagmar. She felt it was
her right to land in the middle of a picture-framing layout for a customerto lend a helping hand. Her Consonants
total another 6, arrived at with the patience of the 2 and the organization and loyalty of the 4. Her total of all Vowels
and Consonants when reduced is a 3. She was the creative one all the way. Where Dagmar was the quiet, reserved
actress, Daphne was the queen of comedy.
Daphne passed away on May 1, 2003, at the age of seventeen. According to Pythagoras, animals can extend their
lives out of love for their caretakers and I have no doubt that Daphne did just that. Her last ninety days gave evidence
that her time was running short, but we had no idea that she had been ill for a longer period of time.
My communication with Pythagoras on May 19, 2003, provided an opportunity to inquire as to how she was
doing in the afterlife we call cat heaven. He said she was resting and recuperating from the illness and would soon
begin to consider her next adventure in a new lifetime. The decision had not been made as to who would be her next
caregiver. Selfishly, I would like to share her next life but she, like all animals, has free will regarding that choice and I
wish only for her greater good at this time.
Even though these Vowel and Consonant number characteristics apply to my own animals, you can see how they
describe your own little animal friends. As I mentioned earlier, the number 6 is always present in the life of the domestic
animal because it personifies their purpose in being so close to human beings. They are love personified. Whether their
caretaker is a homeless person or a millionaire makes no difference to them. They will be just as happy to be near their
caretaker and serve them unconditionally no matter who they are. In this regard, they are way ahead of human beings.

Naming Your Cat

The main thing is to go with your instincts but if you need help, there are many cat names that can be viewed and
downloaded on the internet, or you can even check out a book on baby names. Cats do have a preference and do work
mentally with their new caregivers. Sometimes we have to spend more time than expected observing the characteristics
of each cat.
I mentioned that Iago was named after a Shakespearian character. Dagmar was named after a very beautiful and
voluptuous woman I saw on television during my days in Hollywood. I also looked up the meaning in a name book in
my collection just to be sure of my choice. Daphnes name came from the same book and the personality characteristics
matched her perfectly. When Katherine came along, I wanted to continue the D names so I named her Diedre. After a
few months, I got the distinct impression that I had made a mistake and checked with my psychic friend Isabelle. Sure
enough, the name Katherine, originally given to her by the people I obtained her from, was the one she preferred.
The caregiver should be the one to make the final decision regarding the name. Long names given to purebreds can
be confusing but the short name the cat identifies with is the right one, even if it does not appear on legal papers.
Traditional cat names are being replaced with those associated with people on television and movies, including
102 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

entertainers, but great historical names are still popular as well. I once was a temporary caregiver for a stray male orange
cat. During that thirty-day period, I tried to come up with a name, to no avail. That task belonged to the intended
caregiver.

Charting Your Dogs Name

Since I have had three Schnauzers and a mixed-breed female (Boxer and German Shepherd) I will use their names
as examples, because I know their personalities. Lets start with the mixed-breed whose name was Tina. Then we can
see the difference in characteristics when she reincarnated as Sebastian, the Schnauzer male.

9 1 = 10/1
T I N A
2 5 = 7

T I N A
2 9 5 1 = 17/8

Tinas Vowels total 1 but its a powerful 1 because of the 0 following it. She was very independent and strong willed.
She was also very disciplined. I was able to leave her alone at home with access to an unfenced yard yet she never left
the yard except to visit the next-door neighbor. She would not let the mail carrier leave a package on my front porch
because no one was allowed to enter the yard. He could go no farther then the mailbox at the end of the driveway.
Her Consonants demonstrate that she had no problem being left alone. She was quiet and reserved, and extremely
intelligent and analytical.
The total of all Vowels and Consonants is a 17/8. This is a repeat of the 1 and 7 characteristics expressing as an 8.
She was a powerful dog in appearance and exercised good judgment. She was also very enthusiastic, always ready for
playtime games.

5 1 9 1 = 16/7
S E B A S T I A N
1 2 1 2 5 = 11

S E B A S T I A N
1 5 2 1 1 2 9 1 5 = 27/9

Sebastian was very different from Tina, his previous incarnation. He was high strung compared to the mellower Tina.
Mix-breeds seem to be mellower somehow. His vowels are a 7, arrived at with the help of the 1 and 6. He was very
reserved but liked to talk a lot. Unlike Tina, he did not like to be left alone because he carried the memory of the time
I left Tina in someone elses care and he did not want to be abandoned again. He came directly to me when I examined
the litter and I named him for his elegance and the way he carried himself. He was gentle and cooperative exhibiting
the 11/2 characteristics but he was a fierce guard dog. Like the 9, he took life seriously.
While Sebastian was still a puppy, my business partner was given a young but full-grown male Schnauzer named
Sunny. Since we shared a house, it was a good situation because Sebastian liked having a father figure like Sunny around.
This is the first time I have examined Sunnys numbers but I remember how sunny his disposition was, and that was,
of course, the reason for his name. He was mellow, gentle and friendly.
Paul G. Minar 103

3 7 = 10/1
S U N N Y
1 5 5 = 11

S U N N Y
1 3 5 5 7 = 21/3

Sunny was very creative in his thinking. He was the only Schnauzer who went through dog training sessions, mostly
because he was not acquired as a puppy. He enjoyed the training program as much as his caregiver did. His vowels
showed how he perceived the things he wanted to accomplish: through originality. Notice that I have left the 11 alone
when it is the total of Vowels, Consonants or the combination of both. It is a Master Number that shows teaching
qualities and Sunny impressed everyone with his poise.
The total of Vowels and Consonants shows more creative expression, starting with the patience and cooperation of
the 2, expressed with the originality of the 1. Unfortunately, his life was limited to a few months, cut short when he
was killed by a car. A fence gate had been left ajar by a visitor. That event has caused both of us to be extremely careful
about keeping doors, gates and windows closed and not taking for granted that any type of visitor will do the same.
Houseguests are given pet safety instructions and other visitors are always escorted to the door. Too many animal friends
are lost through carelessness.
The following day, I took a chance and purchased a Schnauzer dog that was a few months old and presented it to
Dale, fearful that he would say it was too soon. Jason was the name given to the new arrival because he was so scrappy,
as in Jason and the Argonauts mythology. Jason was a small miniature Schnauzer, and remained small.

1 6 = 7
J A S O N
1 1 5 = 7

J A S O N
1 1 1 6 5 = 14/5

Jason was a complex little guy. His 7 qualities made him quiet and reserved but he had an explosive temper at times.
Once, during a channeling session, I was told that his rib cage was very sensitive and, when picked up the wrong way
he responded aggressively. He adored his caregiver, Dale, and he was a great friend of the cat named Iago. Sebastian
liked to treat Iago like a punching bag but that ended when Iago grew up and became master of the two dogs.
Jason was a loner much of the time, though hardly anti-social. When Sebastian sired a litter of puppies, it was Jason
who sat close to them as though he was the father. His 14/5 numbers showed how adaptable he was to any situation.
The independence of the 1 plus the loyalty and tenacity of the 4 produced a faithful little dog who enjoyed his freedom
but wanted to be close to his caregiver always.

THE PROGRESSION CHART

Now that we have seen how to interpret an animals vowels and consonants, lets look at how we do their Progression
Chart or Life Script. It is also called the Progressed Chart, Transit and Event numbers, and Table of Events. It deals with
past, present, and future influences. It describes the type of experiences denoted by each letter of a full name in the case
of humans and the single name in the case of most animals. If your little animal friend happens to have two related
names then you would chart both. In any case, the call name is what counts. In chapter nine, we demonstrated how
this chart is constructed for a persons name, and there were many lines or levels to consider and many numbers to look
at from top to bottom. There were many comparisons to be made.
104 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

In the case of an animal, however, we only take into account the emotional level. An animal is bound by its love
commitment to accept whatever type of lifestyle the caregiver lives. The animals physical life is not charted because it
is the same as that of the caregiver. The spiritual level is not done for animals because they do not have the same kind
of spiritual essence as humans. As our life goes, so goes theirs. Their name is played out so that it repeats over and over
but they have shorter lives, therefore they do not have as many name repeats. A name like Sam contains a total of six
years, allowing for a repeat three times for a rather mature age of eighteen, whether it is a dog or cat. So, lets look at
the emotional life of Sam:

S A M M M M S A M M M M S A M M M M
1 1 4 4 4 4 1 1 4 4 4 4 1 1 4 4 4 4

Sam starts life with the action number 1, by way of the S and A, with the S providing a more erratic energy than
the stronger and more confident A. For four years, the loyal, practical, and diligent M appears to bring in a stronger
support system. Then Sam starts the rotation again with the S. This short name repeats often.
Its amazing how timely the animals name letters act as a nurturing agent in the caregivers life. As I mentioned
before, an animal (as well as a human) can extend their life when the need is great enough or simply because of a strong
will to live. Nevertheless, animals, especially, can really surprise their caregivers out of love.
You can readily see how much simpler an animals Progression Chart is compared to ours. With an animal, you do
not have to be concerned about lining up a Physical, Emotional and Spiritual level or including the Personal Year,
Universal Year, Pinnacles, or Challenges numbers. Animals do not have an Emotional Body as humans do but they
are charted on an emotional level. They do have an emotional nature together with instincts far superior to ours. In fact,
they can actually see the spirit formsanimal or humanthat come and go daily, which most of us cannot do. They
do have an Electric Body (which we call the Etheric Body) most of the time. Humans also have one. It is this Etheric
Body that continues to function, even when a physical limb is removed, because it is at the inner core of our physical
construction. Special cameras have recorded the missing arms or legs of individuals. Our Etheric Body also engages
in what is known as astral travel during our nocturnal state.
Names of animals have changed greatly over the past century in keeping with the status of animals. They receive far
more respect these days, partly because this is the age of information. The more we know about them the more we
appreciate and love them. Also, because of the magic of marketing, their world has assumed a very high level of
attention. Dogs and cats have moved from the yard into their caregivers house, and now have elaborate little houses
and heated beds. They travel extensively with humans. Animal magazines are full of wonderful and imaginative pet
names and provide a wealth of names to choose from. The main thing to consider is the name that would best match
the personality and appearance of the animal.
Cute names do not necessarily provide the respect and dignity the animals deserve so sometimes it is best to wait and
watch the personality emerge. However, this business of naming an animal is a mysterious and magical process and I
have no set rule to offer other than going with intuition first. Then observe to see if you were right. Having too much
time to intellectualize the naming process can be frustrating. But each animal was born with a name that was
already chosen, and usually they manage to mentally project that name to the caregiver
sooner or later.
R emember, I will close this chapter with this thought: spend a little more time with your little
they incarnated animal friends. Remember, they incarnated just to be with you! When they misbehave, it
is generally to give you a message about the way they are being treated. They will respond
just to be to strong cleaning chemicals for instance by spraying their own aroma on the area, or they
with you! will misbehave because there is disharmony in the household. They cannot speak to us, so
they communicate the best way they know how. Their unconditional love is their highest
form of communication. Accept it, and please return it as often as possible!

Pythagoras: His Life and Teachings


(Information taken from many channeling sessions beginning in 1980)

Pythagoras was born in Greece, was carried to Egypt and traveled in the East extensively before settling in Egypt
for a great span of time. He then returned to Greece. Pythagoras claims that in a previous life he lived in Atlantis
and the name he bore was translated into Pythagoras later. He explained that later meant during his journey as
Pythagoras. I asked if his parents made that translation and he answered, It was made on another level, just as we
all choose names prior to incarnating.
My question regarding the time frame for his birth and death produced an interesting exchange, because as he
explained, there was a calendar change during that period. Pythagoras claims he was born in 707 B.C., and lived for
136 years. That would make the year of his death 571 B.C. However, the calendar was pushed back some 165 years
creating a situation in which he died prior to his birth date. I asked if there was a particular reason for the calendar
change. Pythagoras answered that it was generally believed that every 2000 years a new calendar had to come into
being, just as the Druids had to change their method of belief and ritual every so often. It was as though you cleansed,
and you go forward. Now it is not necessary, because having done that, we realize how much history has been lost.
I further asked if this was a change that was in harmony with all the countries at that time. He replied, All of those
who were using a calendar. He further stated that historically speaking the records were never kept with as great
precision as they are now. He went on to state that many who accredit his having been born in the latter part of the
eleventh and thirteenth centuries did not reckon with the thought that his descendants carried his name.
Pythagoras fathers name was Mnesarchus and his mothers name was Parthenis. They named him in honor of
Pythasis, the Oracle who foretold his birth. The accounts I have read say that Pythagoras never looked his age, that
he remained youthful and powerful. He was said to be very tall and strong. To this he replied That is very true. The
reason that I did not look my age is the healthful life I led.
As for children, Pythagoras had none of his own. He stated that there were several children brought into the
temple that laid claim to me, but that was not so. No, I did not have progeny of my own. I did though, take in many
children and raise them as my own.
Pythagoras had but one wife and her name was Penelope.

On October 11, 1996, I had another fascinating channeling session with Pythagoras. I was prepared with many
questions this time.
Paul: Did you study in the Temple of Melchizedek?
Pythagoras: Yes.
Paul: Were the teachings of Pythagoras known as The secret teachings of all the ages?
Pythagoras: They were known as The secret teachings of all the Sages, and the teachings came from two
very dear friends of mine, who taught the Ancients and the Sages over many, many years.
Paul: Were these teachers in physical body at the time?
Pythagoras: Yes, they were, but they also had the ability to change their bodies.
Paul: Is it appropriate to record their names at this time?
Pythagoras: They would rather that you didnt.
Paul: Rabbis taught Pythagoras the secret traditions of Moses in Egypt and he received instructions by
priests of Thebes in the mysteries of Isis. Is that correct?
Pythagoras: Oh, yes. At that time, there was no demarcation between belief systems. Everyone who had a
worthy thought was encouraged to bring it forth, regardless of what religion or culture they came from. It
was not as it is now. So much of the information was gleaned by scouring many universities to get it.
Paul G. Minar 107

Paul: I see. And in Egypt, according to one source, you studied there for twenty-two years. The priests there
taught that Divine power dwelt within every man no matter how low he might be. This power was called the
Hidden Light. Was that pretty accurate?
Pythagoras: That is correct.
Paul: In Phoenicia, you learned the mysteries of Adonis. The Phoenicians connected with the growth and
maturing of flowers and maturing fruits that depend on the sun for life. So, that information about Phoenicia
is correct?
Pythagoras: Oh, yes. The Heliotrope energies were very necessary.
Paul: And did you study with Zoroaster?
Pythagoras: Oh, indeed. Indeed, we studied together.
Paul: For approximately how long? Or, was this an ongoing from time-to-time situation?
Pythagoras: This went on from time to time.
Paul: I see. In Hindustan, you studied with the Brahman priests and obviously studied the Hindustani texts,
the Vedas.
Pythagoras: Yes, but not to the extent that would be available to teachers of today.
Paul: Wise men in those days were called, sages or sophistssage meaning one who knows and sophist
meaning wise. Pythagoras was the first to use the term Philosopher. Is that correct?
Pythagoras: It has been said so. The idea came from what you would call a think tank type of meeting,
and thats where the thought and the word Philosopher came from.
Paul: And you were the proper person at that point in time to begin using that term.
Pythagoras: Yes.
Paul: You journeyed to Crotona and established the first university in history, combining religious ritual with
scientific study.
Pythagoras: Yes. That has been credited to me, but let me tell youI was not alone in doing it.
Paul: I see. The secrets of number vibration were taught to a select fewso secret that they were never
written.
Pythagoras: Many of the secret teachings of the Ancients were never written, only spoken. And more so,
they were symbolic, and the symbols were engraved within the mind of those studying.
Paul: And then, according to one source, about 600 years later Jesus established Schools of Mysteryfive of
them. One was in Palestine. The secrets were the same as Pythagoras taught, and discovered later by Max
Heindel, writer of many books on the wisdoms and member of The Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross.
Pythagoras: That is fairly accurate.
Paul: Also according to this source, your school followed rather strict rules. No personal contact by students
until they passed several initiations and were in the higher grades. Even then, Pythagoras wore a robe with
a hood so that he was hardly seen. Is that true?
Pythagoras: Yes, that is true. The reason was that ego was to be released totally during the studies.
Paul: Did the students wear these robes also?
108 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Pythagoras: Oh, yes.


Paul: I see. Thats a different insight. Children with a 7 birth path were readily taken into school and were
deemed ready to learn the mysteries.
Pythagoras: They were taken in and deemed ready to learn the mysteries, but many of them were not truly
ready.
Paul: That makes sense. Other children had to pass certain tests first. They were taken to a secluded spot and
left to concentrate on a symbol, such as the triangle. They were to write down all ideas that came to them
and tie those ideas in with all of life. Next morning they reported their concepts to others in school.
Pythagoras: It was much as Indians of today in this country, and their quest. The studying was very much
the same.
Paul: There was also an emphasis on teaching the students to deal with sensitivityto withstand criticism by
their peers or teachers and the rigors of school discipline in generalto make them stronger.
Pythagoras: Yes. And we found that was not always the best approach. It took many hundreds of years to
discover there was a much better approach, and that was to teach each person individually, and look at them
as individuals.
Paul: I see. Kind of like the need today.
Pythagoras: Thats right.
Paul: Were there five years of total silence for students?
Pythagoras: Well, thats what we said we wanted, and demanded, but we found that was a rule that was
impossible to be adhered to.
Paul: I see. You were quoted as saying quiet attention is the beginning of wisdom.
Pythagoras: Yes.
Paul: That seems to be very much a part of your teaching.
Pythagoras: Yes.
Paul: And also, it is not wise to show a temper.
Pythagoras: (warm laughter) Yes, thats right.

On July 12, 1983, Pythagoras first mentioned the secret aspect of his teachings, and I will insert it at this time.
Paul: Were your teachings given to your students in secret, and were they allowed to write them down?
Pythagoras: When they were given to my students, yes, they were given in secret, because at that time to
give them publicly would have been heresy. Also, to keep the teachings pure they had to be given in secret so
that even as now there are those who are entrusted with Sacred Teachings that their neighbors know not of,
even though they may sit side-by-side in the class. Does that answer your question?
Paul: Yes, it does.
Pythagoras: As for the teachings being written down, there has always been a record, but as you know,
records can be obliterated in a time of great stress and need.
Earlier in this chapter, I referred to the fact that Pythagoras claimed to have lived a rather long lifeone hundred
thirty-six years to be exact. In a taped session on October 23, 1980, he provided a reason for his longevity.
Paul G. Minar 109

Pythagoras: At that time, there were many who did not, by choice, live a long time. I chose to live long
enough to put forth works that had been a glimmer through many years of my life. It was not easy, as it is
now, to follow a pattern of light and stars through which the mathematics of Astronomy and Numbers could
be defined easily. If you study the works that have been handed down, you will find that my formulas were
brought forth through a collaboration of Astronomy, Astrology and what is known now as Numerology, in a
way that was a true form of Alchemy. I was reasoned as being a heretic, as being possessed. I was thought to
be a warlock, and then a demon. I was also looked up to as a man of scholarly assets, but never was the light
so bright that I was seen truly, for there were traditions, fears, hysteria still. My work was never seen as a
spiritual harmony, not for many hundreds of years. There is still great controversy over that which I put my
seal.
Paul: So there were writings you did that have not come down to us today.
Pythagoras: Thats right.

Pythagoras then went on to provide more insight regarding his teachings.


Paul: What can you tell us about the significance of numbers beyond their mathematical meaning?
Pythagoras: You want me to tell you that which I taught at that time, and I will tell you now, how that
was taught was not as it is now, for I too had to learn. Through the first few centuries, the teachings were
more of an esoteric type. This was not applicable to the range of thought that was needed to assist man as he
made his path on this great planet. Should I tell you how it was taught after I left my body I would be happy
to, for you see, those that I worked with so closely did speak, not knowing that their utterances were coming
from another realm.
Paul: What previous lifetime, or lifetimes, prepared you for your role as a mathematician and Numerologist
in your life as Pythagoras?
Pythagoras: A lifetime in Egypt, where mathematics was the energy force that brought together many
factions, and by that, I mean different countries, different leaders. Adding to that, work I have done on other
planets certainly did prepare me. Also, having been an active part of the schools and colleges of Atlantis, and
then again in Egypt, and then in Phoenicia, and then in Rome, all contributed to the pattern that expressed
itself in my physical existence as Pythagoras.
Paul: I assume it would be correct to say that your contribution as Pythagoras was not necessarily one of
limitations, but that you contributed what you were supposed to in that period of time. Any greater or lesser
would not have been appropriate.
Pythagoras: That is true, and I can see that now. I could not then. I wanted to give more and more, and
could not. When my physical being no longer served me, I saw then, clearly, that I had to give only so much
at that time, and that which I am still giving is only yet a part of that which I will give.

Choosing
or
Changing
a Name
112 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Choosing or Changing a Name

The credit for choosing a name for an unborn child is generally given to the parents. However, the child is the one
who generally chooses his or her name prior to incarnating and then impresses the name on the parents. I say generally
because there are times when the parents choose to ignore the wishes of the child, who may then change the name at a
later time as a result.
A name is chosen, not only for the benefit of the child, but also to assist the family members and future important
relationships with others. Sometimes a name is changed during the gestation period within the mother. The spirit of
the unborn child uses the pregnancy period to reflect on the future effectiveness of its name. Sometimes the child
changes the name because of the behavior of the parents, especially if that behavior is apt to negatively impact the child
after birth. The unborn child hears conversations between the parents and sometimes even sees through the belly of the
mother. That is why it is important for the parents to communicate their love directly to the child within the mother
and to touch the fetus in a caring way.
No one on the earth plane can know exactly what lessons have been prescribed by that being for an incarnation and
the birth name carries all the life lessons to be experienced. Each letter of the full name causes those experiences to be
played out like a script as we saw in chapter nine dealing with the basic Numerology Chart.
It is very important for the parents to use their intuition in choosing a name for their child, for that is when they
connect with their unborn child to create the proper name. It is not primarily the Numerologists responsibility to
perform that task. He or she can only guide the parents and encourage their use of their intuitive process. It is usually
easier to change a name than to create the first one, especially if the child has reached an age
where personality is established and life experiences are such that the Numerologist can
A new name equate the original name to those experiences.
brings a new When the karma associated with the original name has been properly dealt with, it is then
possible to change that name to one more in harmony with present and future needs. The
vibration. numerical content of an existing name can be a hindrance to someone. A new name brings a
new vibration, and thus a new outlook. A new name can bring about a total unison within
the body.
It is also very important for everyone to have a middle name because that name is associated with emotions. It
stabilizes all the emotions. Anyone who does not have a middle name should create one and this is where a good
Numerologist can be of assistance. Again, he or she encourages a persons intuition to lead the way but can, by a process
of elimination, help pick a suitable middle name by matching the numerical values with karma as well as present needs
and future goals. Even a middle initial will suffice, and that is an important choice, because it produces a single rather
than multiple numerical influences for the person. You would look at a change of two names as a rebirth, and the
components of those two names would allow that rebirth to take place.
The first name is most important because it influences your personal world and activities. We already mentioned the
emotional nature of the middle name. The last name represents the spiritual heritage from your fathers name, your
family name, and carries a lesser importance than the first two names. If a person changes all three names, they would
then have a new birth, a new vibration.

On March 19, 2003, I had occasion to meet with Pythagoras for an interesting channeling session regarding last
names. This is how Pythagoras responded to my request regarding how to handle hyphenated last names:
Pythagoras: All right. For a woman, the last phase of the hyphenation is the one you would work with, for
that is the one she came into this world with. Now, for a male, it would be the same because the first part of
the hyphenation would be his mothers name and you would work with that the same as you would with a
child or an unmarried person. There is no difference there. The only thing is that there would be a conflict
between a wifes belief and her husbands, perhaps, and that can cause a change, mostly in the progression
chart.
Paul: Yes. Is there a possibility that a child might choose which of the last two names he or she wishes to have?
Paul G. Minar 113

Pythagoras: Yes and that usually happens before that child enters school. One would think that a child
who is five or six years old would not understand what it really wants, but they know the harmony that goes
with the right name for that person and legally it can be done when they are 12 years old or later.
Paul: For example, lets take the name Joan Rita Jones-Wagner. What would happen if I added the Jones-
Wagner as one name?
Pythagoras: No. They are two names with two different personalities and two different meanings.
Paul: What would happen if I were to do it both ways, with Joan Rita Jones and Joan Rita Wagner?
Pythagoras: You could do that and then allow that person to contemplate on both names, and then you
can finish your chart.
Paul: That seems like a fair compromise. Now, we also have same-sex marriages or unions where two last
names are involved and here again we have a complex situation.
Pythagoras: Usually, in a case like that, members choose to keep their original name. As a rule, they do
not take on each others name.
Paul: What about the child? Does the child normally have one last name, representing either of the two
parentsthe legal parents?
Pythagoras: Yes, but also, in some cultures, they allow the mothers name to be the middle name for the
child. That brings in another set of circumstances.
Paul: It seems to me that the Numerologist needs to talk to the child, if possible, and discuss the situation
and after explaining the implications, ask what that childs choice would be.
Pythagoras: Right. But the Numerologist should, for integritys sake, talk to the parents first and ask them
what they propose to do, and then talk to the child.
Paul: I recently talked to a Chinese woman who gave her name two different ways. In one case, she had a first
name that had nothing to do with the family name. Then there was the family name. Then she had a second
name in which the family name was her first name and that was supposed to be the preferred choice in the
family structure.
Pythagoras: In the Orient, that is the way to do things. Now, the real beginning of free will expression is
being used. It is more challenging, but also more gratifying.

Numbers for
Identification,
Communication,
Travel
and
Location
116 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Numbers for Identification, Communication, Travel and Location

Identification:
These numbers apply to you in a very personal way because you use them all the time to accomplish personal things.
These days, your Social Security number is the most important means of identifying who you are. The total of all the
numbers expresses your uniqueness. The last four digits express your uniqueness even more. Like the numbers in your
name and birth-date, they add other adjectives to your personality. Your name might be shared with many people, but
not your Social Security number, so study it and see what part or parts of your Numerology Chart it relates to.
Also, examine the numbers and letters pertaining to any identification cards you have, whether they represent
organizations, health programs, credit cards, secret access codes or whatever. Every number has a special significance,
no matter how it is used. Every number or group of numbers will have an influence on that aspect of your membership
in society.
When you are allowed to choose numbers in advance, think about numbers that produce the kind of outcome you
want. In order to understand and work with numbers for identification, you must be familiar with all the numbers in
your Numerology Chart, and, of course, you have to know the meanings of each number.
You need to identify the specific role a number or numbers will play in your daily activities. Most of the time we are
handed an identification card, with no choice at all. Then we have to work with the most positive aspects of the total
of numbers and letters. In a series of numbers for any purpose, there may be a dash. According to Pythagoras, it
represents the pause, but does not bear any great significance.

Communication:
Your telephone number is probably the most important number in this case. Many people share your area code but
even those numbers affect all the people who share it. However, the rest of your telephone numbers affect you in a much
more personal way. Again, many individuals share the first three digits then the final four digits have a more direct
influence on you as an individual.
But the final tally is most important and you need to make sure that this communication need enhances your life
style. A writer would benefit by the energies of the 2 or 7. The 5 would create a lot of unexpected activity and change.
The 6 draws people into your life but love and responsibility are part of that attraction. The 4 helps establish order and
a strong work ethic.
A ham radio operator has special call letters or numbers and computer users have an address for email. They also
have a secret access code. All these numbers require some contemplation, because you can choose them ahead of time
and that is a great advantage. The solution is simple. Study the meaning of the numbers from one to nine and choose
those that help you.

Travel:
An airline, bus or train ticket is significant because it influences your travel on a single occasion or over a period of
time. People dont have much choice as to these numbers and letters, so they have to use the cards that are dealt to them.
Like all numbers and letters in a sequence, the placement of each in relation to the ones adjacent to it is part of a
formula that is best left up to someone like Pythagoras. The final outcome is most important, though this is one
application that is not easily understood because its duration is so short.
Our practical and emotional needs can vary from one day to another and this is an area where most people, including
myself, do not seem to pay much attention. But rest assured, every number or combination of numbers does influence
all of our activities.
An automobile license plate is another matter. It is possible to select your own custom numbers and letters. This is
an opportunity to put your own stamp of individuality on your vehicle, though privacy is not part of the package. This
is actually a very important identification as well as travel numbersome license plates identify the owner more than
they realize. They also show a sense of humor at times that is also a personality clue. Someone wants to make a
statement!
Paul G. Minar 117

Location:
Your home address represents an energy whose influence cannot be altered unless you are able to change it legally.
All numbers are significant with the final digit being most important. The home address influences the type of activities
there. In an apartment building, everyone shares the influence of the building number, but the most important numbers
are those that denote a specific apartment or condominium. These numbers attract a certain type of activity. It is the
personality of your residence.
The same applies to a business and that energy is shared by those who work there but not as
intimately as a personal residence. Also, one needs to compare the business address with the
I t is the business name to see if they are harmonious. There will be a combined energy influence at that
personality location. It is important to consider these numerical influences before starting a particular
business. Once you are ensconced in a home or business you have to make the best of the
of your situation, but you cannot change the influences that are present in the numbers. To expand this
residence. situation, we can look at the street, city, county and state name but these influences are spread
over a large area. Still, they do exert their influence over a wide geographical area.
A good numerical practice session would be to compare the number totals for countries like
England, France, Germany, Japan, China, Mexico and America. Also, try North America and the United States of
America. If you know your history, you will better understand the characteristics of each country by the numbers.
South America will be different from North America because every letter and every number is part of the total
picture. The same scenario applies to a comparison of all fifty states in the U.S.A.

Compatibility
in
Relationships
120 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Compatibility in Relationships

Some people get along better than others do, whether it is a personal relationship or a casual one. The old saying
opposites attract is still valid. A relationship is meant to thrive on challenges because they stimulate the situation,
making things interesting or even exciting.
But when individuals constantly argue or are combative, something is wrong and that relationship is going nowhere.
Here we have two opposite versions of the same theme. There is a difference between challenging situations and
combative ones, and common sense has to prevail. It is helpful to know something about someone in advance of any
kind of relationship and the numerical influences present in a name or birth-date can be very helpful.
The same can be said of astrological signs and their influences. Sometimes individuals simply bite off more than they
can chew when they take on a relationship. Sometimes one person believes he or she can change or reform the other,
and that is a mistake.
No one should expect ideal sets of numbers in names to guarantee a solid relationship. In karmic situations, lessons
have to be played out and it may take some time for both parties to work out the differences that separate them.
It all depends on how deep the karma is. We learn from challenges and adversity, so they
are helpful experiences in the long run. Obviously, personality differences are more critical
in a marriage or personal relationship than a casual friendship or business association. It all I t all depends
depends on how often people interact and how important the outcomes are. Some on how deep
individuals are more tolerant of everyone they meet while others allow emotions to unduly
influence every encounter. Regardless of the numbers involved, a friendly and receptive the karma is.
personality will gather more lasting friends and relationships. And of course, patience is a
very important factor in any relationship. A rush to judgment not only dooms any chance of success with associations
but ensures future failures as well.
I do not like to merely compare one persons expression number (total of vowels and consonants in the full name)
to another persons expression number to determine compatibility. I dont advise anyone who is not experienced in
interpreting numbers to rigidly adhere to published compatibility number charts. You have to look at the total
Numerology Chart, just as you have to evaluate all aspects of a persons personality. I always consider the astrological
influence of sun signs and if possible the moon and ascending signs, as well, because they add another dimension to the
total picture of a persons inclinations and makeup.
Also, I prefer to work with clients one-on-one if possible, to get into their energy field and thereby do a better job
of evaluating. Then there is the matter of age. At a younger age, you have to consider what kind of life experiences they
have had to shape their personalities, and you have to cut them some slack to allow for future development.
The older we get, the more is expected of us. Thats common sense. I applaud the research that Numerologists have
done to arrive at compatibility comparisons but they are relative comparisons and that fact must be remembered.
Nothing takes the place of free will and the willingness and ability to make adjustments and changes when considering
or being involved in a relationship. There is no substitute for a personal consultation with a good Numerologist. If two
people have serious problems, and especially if children are involved, they should seek professional counseling.

The Power of Thought,


The Power of Love,
The Power of Words
122 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

The Power of Thought, The Power of Love, The Power of Words

Everything begins with a thought. Words cannot be expressed without a thought process that goes through nine
categories of energy first. So numbers are the energy forces that are at the core of all human expression, spoken or
unspoken.
When we speak of thought, we have to separate it into two areas of creative power. The most powerful force in all of
creation is Thought, and God is Thought Incarnate. We owe our existence to the Supreme Beings creative thought.
Although we human beings have the potential for accomplishing great things through our use of our thought processes,
we are simply not in the same league as God. Ours is a work in progress with a very long way to go, but our potential
for future creative accomplishment is beyond our wildest dreams.
At this time, I would like to share again some of the dialogue I had with Pythagoras regarding the power of
Thought, Love and Words.

February 20, 2003:


Paul: Regarding the power of the spoken word, versus thought formsHow would you describe it? Does the
spoken word simply magnify the energy of a thought, or written word? You have spoken in the past about
how, on this planet, at this time, thoughts, ideas, and conversation, are communicated through the spoken
word, rather than mind-to-mind, as is done on other planets. Would it be just as effective if we were able to
communicate our thought forms as they do on other planets?
Pythagoras: Oh, yes.
Paul: It just happens to be that we have to speak on this level?
Pythagoras: Yes.
Paul: An individual who is mute, cannot speak, is the meaning of their words any less significant, or powerful,
than someone who can speak? Does that hold them back?
Pythagoras: Well, let me explain it this way. Have you been around a deaf persontotally deaf?
Paul: Yes.
Pythagoras: Then you know that they do not relate or compute to certain expressions because they
cannot be explained to their satisfaction.
Paul: Words do not have the color or intensity for them that we enjoy. They are very bland.
Pythagoras: It would be like the difference between hearing music and not hearing it. If you can simply
see the notes or see them register on a graph, its just not the same. But a totally deaf person can dance
beautifully because the music has a vibration of its own and they pick it up.
Paul: Beethoven was deaf in the latter part of his years. I would assume that he heard the music in his head.
Pythagoras: Yes, and the vibrations.
Paul: He could feel the vibrations? Did he need to hear the music played to feel the vibrations or did he get
them from the notes?
Pythagoras: From the notes.
Paul: From the notes? Thats quite an accomplishment.
Pythagoras: You see, all he had to do was to put his hands on the notes and draw from them the whole
symphony.
Paul G. Minar 123

And so, a most interesting conversation came to a close. I suspect that Mr. Beethoven was a very special human being
with very special abilities. I have continued meeting and writing with Pythagoras and he has provided inspiring
information for my radio shows, and we are preparing for television and other media work. On a more esoteric yet
common sense level, he had this to say about the title of this chapter:

The power of love, thought and words is simply addressing need. The various parts of the personality need to be in
harmony. Without that harmony, there is no power. It is all a struggle within, and one cannot escape to do what has
been their contract to complete. So power consists of being in total harmony with oneself and all that one professes to
believe and then living that belief.

There is a lot to be gleaned from a short conversation with someone who has something significant and timely to
say and Pythagoras has communicated these types of words to me many times in conversations over the years. His
final comment is very important in these times of conflict and disharmony in the world. Before we can effectively
communicate in thoughts or words with others, we have to be in total harmony with ourselves, and all that we profess to
believe. Then we have to live that belief.

Numerology in Partnership with


Religion, Spirituality, Philosophy and Science

On May 19, 2003, I received a surprise visit from Pythagoras during a visit with Isabelle at her home. In response
to my request for some comments regarding the title of this chapter, Pythagoras had this to say:
Pythagoras: All right. Numerology has always been respected by the scientific community rather than the
religious community because of the past thoughts on occult activity. So, by the end of this century,
Numerology will have taken another big step towards a human being understanding more about who he or
she is, and what he or she is. Numerology could be taught very easily through the arithmetic classes in the
educational system today. It is time to consider this. But then again, it would cause the teachers to have to
re-inform themselves as to what is needed in this process. But that would be the safest way to bring
Numerology to the understanding level of the majority of the people. Have I made myself clear?
Paul: Yes, you have. I have given a great deal of thought lately about the value of Numerology in
understanding not only the meaning of numbers, but understanding life and love so that when I am separated
from family and friends who move farther away from my home or who make their transition there is
something of substance to fill that void of loneliness. I have to be able to look forward to getting up each
morning and facing whatever that day has to offer. I have to be able to find companionship and support in
life itself. This is a condition that has not always been part of my life.
Pythagoras: Well, the one component thats missing as I listen to your words is faith. If you develop a bond
with your Creator, you need nothing else. Think in your quiet time of what God means to you. What does
that expression mean to you? How does that knowingness add to your life?
Paul: A sense of purpose.
Pythagoras: Then think of your relationship with God as the perfect partnership.
Paul: Its time for people to begin to understand more about the nature of God.
Pythagoras: Well, as they understand themselvesthe nature of themselvesthen they understand more
about the nature of God.
Pythagoras has not been my only source of research material over the years, as you will read in chapter eighteen
(Reincarnation). Saint Augustine once answered my question regarding how psychologists should deal with
international disharmony. His answer also applies to anyone who has any interest in international diplomacy, especially
the leaders of the countries who are members of the world organization known as the United Nations. At this writing,
there are many opinions regarding the effectiveness of the United Nations, but the concept of all countries working
together for a common good, I am sure, is not a universally objectionable issue. Saint Augustine had this to say:

Psychologists should deal with international disharmony with love tempered with knowledge, wisdom,
compassion, understanding, purpose and reasoning. Without all this, love is not realized. It is a sham, or a lip
service. From country to country, there must be respect and understanding. One does not conquer ones
enemies by reducing them to nothing. One truly conquers ones enemies through love, with deep
understanding and respect, to create a harmonious atmosphere in which each can exist, realizing their own
potential, fulfilling their own commitments, in their own cultures.

Through the many categories of science today, it is now possible to reinforce many beliefs and concepts held by
leaders of religious and spiritual groups. Biblical beliefs are gradually becoming biblical facts thanks to modern
technology. Biblical history can now be studied by scientists as well as biblical scholars and theologians.
The known universe of yesterday has expanded to unbelievable proportions. Pythagoras always viewed the world
and all universes as infinite harmony with mathematical proportions and without the aid of our modern technology
Paul G. Minar 127

tools. His philosophical beliefs were interwoven with his scientific teachings because he believed they were all part of
Gods master plan for existence.
I believe there will come a time when Numerologists will work hand in hand with psychologists. The numbers
present in a persons name and birth-date provide an instant look at personal characteristics and potential. Some of those
characteristics require the expertise of psychologists to dig deeper into the psyche and to provide the kind of professional
diagnosis necessary for a more complete analysis or treatment.
The energy forces present in numbers will have to become part of the study curriculum of all sciences one day. We
Numerologists also need to do more research in our study of numbers. But, with the advent of the computer, that
research is already under way. The computer and the internet have opened the door to investigation for all the sciences.
We can now let our fingers do the walking, the listening and the talking. There will never be a true substitution for a
partnership of minds.

Without that partnership, there will be no progress.

Belief in reincarnation has always existed in one form or another by most of the major religions of the world. The
Christian religion taught reincarnation in the early days until the Council of Constantinople in 537 A.D. After a great
deal of pressure from theologians, it was ousted while in a formal session. Another Council in 543 A.D. further stifled
belief in reincarnation. Dogmatic theology had won over intellectual and spiritual freedom.
The Dark Ages
Materialistic beliefs led to the Dark Ages and references to reincarnation were removed from the Bible. However,
secret societies and mystical groups together with writers and philosophers kept the doctrine of reincarnation alive. They
used symbolism to hide the teachings relating to reincarnation.
The Renaissance
The Renaissance movement gave new life to the belief in reincarnation and gradually the concepts were taught more
openly. The bible states it clearly: Ye must be born again (John, 3:7). This reference to being born again is an
important part of the beliefs of some Christians today, but is a symbolic meaning for them rather than a literal one.
Literal Rebirth
I believe in a literal rebirth as I have already stated in this book many times. Every belief or concept imaginable is
subject to many different interpretations and much debate. Even today, despite great technological achievements,
scientific and theological minds still argue the outcome of extensive research and evaluation. Each individual or group
putting forth its own interpretation of this elusive thing called truth.
To me, the concept of reincarnation is connected in a special way to the concepts of immortality and timelessness.
Twenty-five years of ongoing communication with those special beings who occupy the spirit realms has absolutely
convinced me that we were created out of Gods own Essence or energy. Therefore, we also had no beginning and will
have no end.
Conversations with teachers like Jesus, Saint Francis, Saint Augustine, Zoroaster,
Buddha and Pythagoras, to name a few, have often focused on the origin and destiny
of humankind. Time began for human beings when God decided to involve us in His

Eve theory, or biblical account, because I dont wish to digress too much at this time. You
are welcome to your own belief in that part of humankinds origins on earth including everything involved with the
Garden of Eden. The secret is in knowing the difference between fact and symbolism.
Things that have a beginning also have an end including the human body and all dense matter. Energy had no
beginning, and will have no end. In a timeless framework, we do have a long journey ahead in which to ultimately
achieve our destiny as administrators of the universes rather than being confined to one lifetime on earth with hardly
enough time to develop the skills and character necessary for such great ultimate accomplishments.
We do not deny our own children their birthrights or dreams of great accomplishments. We do not discourage their
desire to imitate and follow in our footsteps. So why should our Creator, the Father of us all, be any different? There
are simply too many inequalities surrounding us. There is no level playing field in a single lifetime, because this is just
one life among many lives, or existences, on this planet and others in Gods universes.
What is most important is that we make a sincere effort to search for our own truth rather than accepting it too
readily from someone else. I respect the beliefs of any person so long as they are arrived at as the result of a great deal
of comparative study and contemplation. It is in this spirit of personal evaluation that I present a dissertation that was
given to me in 1979 during a research project on channeling.
Paul G. Minar 131

I was attending John F. Kennedy University in Orinda, California, and taking a class on the transition phase of life
called Death and Dying. I wanted a unique commentary on death and afterlife to present as my term paper. Having
met my friend Isabelle the previous year, and having confidence in her abilities as a channel for the Higher Essences, I
asked her if she could connect me with someone who could provide the information I needed.
Four days later, she summoned me to her home to participate in a special channeling session. A new communicator
(for me) made an appearance and he introduced himself with the words I am Jesus the Christ. He then began the
most informative and eloquent dissertation I have ever heard about the subject that had always intrigued me the most.
Incidentally, I have had the pleasure of speaking with Elder Brother (as he prefers to be addressed) on many
occasions since 1979, and these were information sessions dealing with issues and concepts relating to the physical,
emotional, philosophical and spiritual needs of all of humankind, including biblical happenings. He started with these
words:

Elder Brother: As a dove flies through the heavens on his mission, so do the spirits of those who await their
return. And as their spirits soar through the heavens of the universes, thus they become magnets at times,
attracting energies, attracting the colors, the sounds, the music and the many vibrations that surround them.
Thus, in incarnating from time to time, the vibration attracts like vibration. Many times the same talents are
brought forth, a little differently sometimes, but enhanced and thoroughly developed, using the past,
incorporating the present and looking to the future always. Energies that bring many talents forward are
swirling about a great many people at this time and one can order almost the energies and the talents they
would grace themselves with. The opportunities of such are so abundant at this time that it is indeed
saddening to see many people not calling forth these energies. And now I would have you ask me that which
you pre-decided. You see, though I heard your questions I want you to ask them for the benefit of the taping.
Paul: Thank you. Can you provide me with a dissertation at this time, on the New Age perspective of
transition, afterlife and its activities and the process of rebirth?
Elder Brother: Indeed. The perspective that is brought forth at this time and hopefully ingrained in the
conscious minds of Man is this: that the tenure served on this planet is not a penance. It is a planet that offers
valuable education; education in that each one learns a multitude of subjects that would not be taught
anywhere else, so that when one is ready to make their transition it is earnestly hoped that with the new
energiesand they are new; many of them have never been here before.
Thus, when these new energies are incorporated in the atmosphere, Man will want to stay time and again to achieve
for himself the proper mode of renewing himself, to become his own link, not a link with others, but his own link to
his Godhead. In the past, it worked the other way around. As a few were enlightened and raised in vibration, and
ultimately in their consciousness, everyone was raised at the same time.
Now, everyone is raised to a higher level automatically, and from there the step upward is individual. Some will take
a quantum leap and some will take a baby step, but it does not really matter except that the desire to reach the Godhead
is ever present. There are many who claim that this will never happen, that Man will always be going toward but never
reaching their Godhead. That is not so. It will take time, yes, but Man will succeed in renewing his pact with his Creator
and thus having done this, he will take greater pride in taking that step to become his own creator. We are, and always
will be, a part of that Infinite Force called God.
132 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

So when transition takes place, it is a step on the rung of the ladder that allows more
steps to be placed. That rung is clear, and it is well placed for each individual; custom
W e are, and designed, so to speak. So when one is ready to take another step up the ladder, his
always will be, transition from his physical body to another form takes place.
Now in this transformation, we are talking about what you refer to as death, when the
a part of that physical body is left behind much as one would leave their boots outside the door on a
Infinite Force stormy day and go through that door without many of the trappings that have held Man
in bondage on this planet. When that step is taken through that door, there are many
called God. avenues to follow. If one has been ill for some time before making transition, then there
are those gentle souls who meet that soul coming through the door and take him to a place
of rest, a place of sound that is most tranquil and healing, a place where colors flow much as water would flow, only
smoother. These colors are, in themselves, a builder of the cells that are unseen at the time. After a given period of rest
(and that too is very individual), then that soul or spirit, however you wish to define it, is thus taken from the resting
place. For a brief time it is allowed to visit a loved one or two or more and use that bonus period to assure others of the
beauty that lies beyond the door.
Then there are preparations for that necessary step in the evolution of a soulschool. The inner plane schools are
quite often taught by teachers who are in physical body also and who spend much time teaching on the inner planes.
What is taught in these schools varies in accordance with that which the person has chosen to prescribe to in another
incarnation or to help guide someone else. You see, nothing is left to chance.
The teachers and the guides of the people who are in body now have been well trained at this time to help them
through this transition period, for though they are still in body, there are many transitions taking place within each one
continuously now and the teachers and the guides are here to assist them to do just that. So you see, it is an ongoing
thing, but it is all done with such love, such caring, that it is startling to see how many people are afraid of making that
kind of transition, the kind known as death.
So it is to the advantage of everyone to associate death and transition as the only way to that inner beauty that must
be expressed again and again by coming into body again and again. When one has not had a long illness, one then stays
for a very short time to acclimate themselves to the energies and the arenas they find themselves in after leaving the
body. Then some are placed to the planets they have chosen in advance to continue work done there or to assist new
work, to follow through on some commitment or other but always to keep the universes vibrant and healthy with the
many concepts that are constantly being programmed or changed.
Everything, in all the universes, is energy in a state of flux constantly on the move. Now there are some who have
incarnated to do a service or to finish their time on the karmic wheel and when they are finished, they have been
designated to other work. Then they spend little or no time in a resting or holding place but go directly to that which
is awaiting them either as a teacher on the inner planes or as a teacher alongside someone on a conscious level, or they
go to other planets to colonize and to raise the vibrations of these planets. This is life everlasting!
Now, let me have your questions about that which has been discussed, and that which you would like to discuss.
Paul: Yes. One spiritual teaching I have come across states that there is pain or anguish involved in the process
whereby a person reviews the mistakes of a given life, and that is the heaven and hell of afterlifereviewing
the good and the bad. What can you comment on that?
Elder Brother: I would say to you this: that as Man and his own consciousness evolves, he quickly
understands that to look to the past cannot cause him pain but instead causes him joy for he knows that he
has progressed.
Hell is standing beside you as well as Heaven. However you choose to lean into is your choice. So, if you are a
sensitive soul who suddenly sees the weaknesses within him and gives in to those weaknesses, then he has indeed chosen
to lean into the Hell of life and wallows in it.
To say that your Creator demands you to look at your past mistakes is to say that your Creator is not sensitive and
loving. We look to our past mistakes not as a punishment, but to see how well we have learned our lessons, not to
Paul G. Minar 133

anguish over that which has gone on before but to realize that we need to look at the future.
We need to feel the confidence of the future.
We need not live in fear, for if that were as far as Man has come, then Hell surrounds and W e need not
engulfs everyone totally. The ancient beliefs, the not-too-far distant beliefs, were that there live in fear.
were dealings that one must continue.
There are those beliefs that say you are judged on judgment day for that which you have
committed in the past. There are those who say you will burn in the fires of Hell. And at a time when Man needed to
be disciplined so that he would no longer purge his body with the horrendous activities that were a part of their living
circumstances, this was necessary. This was a disciplinary action in words to assist Man in preparing him for that step
which he has to take.
If there were not at that time a control of some kind, Man would have destructed himself totally a long time ago.
So to say that after death you must view your sins and anguish over them are but the words of those who would place
fear in the hearts of all beings, for Man needs not that kind of recrimination now. Man needs only to look back and
instead of viewing the ashes, he needs to count his blessings. He needs to see his progress.
As has been stated many times, One should only look back to count their blessings and measure their growthno
other reason. To say there is a place designated for Man to suffer and endure a penance is to say that God is cruel and
unjust, and God is not, for my Father would never do that. Such love has the Father for Man that He has spent eons
of time nurturing him. Why then would He destroy him? For to inflict such pain, as many would depict hell to be,
would be to scar or deform a very precious tool. Do you understand me?
Paul: Your words are very well received. What can you tell me of the process between incarnations of
designing a body suited to a particular life experience?
Elder Brother: As soon as a family is chosen and the time is presented that a child comes into carnation, then
a place is set aside within a physical being of the female species where the thoughts are placed by the child or
by the being who would come into that creation long before that time is upon it.
Personalities are worked upon during this period so that there is a certain amount of compatibility and the essence
of love is programmed. It does not always take on this level, but it does fruit itself on other levels. When the time for
conception takes place, more and more thoughts are poured into this tiny little seed that rests in the spiritual sacristy
of the mother. As soon as conception takes place, thus these thought forms are released into the wombinto the uterus
of the motherand these thought forms start to work with the vibration of the spirit that is to enter it to build a body.
The genes of the mother and the father are considered and the work is thus begun to build a compatible body that
will serve the spirit for its journey through this lifetime. There are many theories, and indeed many of them are very
well taken, that from different members of the family the pictures are projected to the body and yes, even to the mind
of that little being that is being created. When the spirit is ready to enter the body that has been formed, it takes place
during a period of normal ovation.
Now, this does take place in such a way that almost immediately the spirit within the child connects totally and
movement takes place. The thoughts that created the body also help to produce the means by which that body is fed
while it is in the womb.
Also, there is another channel, or another entrance to that body, whereas the thoughts are placed to it. It hears, it
feels, it knows, and yes, with some, they see through the mothers stomach, or belly. Thus, many children come into
this atmosphere and are born with the knowledge that they are not wanted by one parent, or both, at that time, for they
have heard the many conversations that might have taken place, or they have heard the angry words of a disgruntled
mate, and so they know well in advance that their coming may not be as gracious as could be. And thus, a chain reaction
is brought forth. This subject is inexhaustible, isnt it?
Paul: Yes.
Elder Brother: Where would you like me to stop?
Paul: The spirit enters the fetus at the point then where we first discern movement in that unborn baby?
134 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Elder Brother: Yes.


Paul: And is this spirit more expressed upon the inhalation of air at that first breath at birth?
Elder Brother: Indeed it is, for you see, that spirit is always ready for several days afterward to leave if
necessary.
Paul: That is most helpful on that particular aspect of life. You speak of energies, and we are somewhat
programmed to think about energy in a singular sense without a connection to spiritual teachings so
obviously there is a great misunderstanding in the world regarding energy.
Elder Brother: Oh yes, yes. And that understanding is difficult to achieve. You see, there are many energies
that can be placed in the atmosphere to make Man react in any number of ways, and yet, it is not to relieve
Man of his own responsibility or to remove from him free will. It is done to help him make any changes that
might be necessary for him on his path. Energies flow constantly, in a myriad of ways, and the vibrations of
these energies are as countless as the stars.
Paul: Thank you. What is the New Age, beyond its coming change from Pisces to Aquarius?
Elder Brother: With each new age, Man evolves in such a way that a new set of blueprints is needed for Mans
physical being as well as his mental being. The New Age teachings are brought forth to help Man
accommodate his total being, to consolidate that which he is on all levels. When energies have been abused
a cycle can begin much sooner and the bodies must then have special preparations made to receive these new
energies. New Age teachings are brought forth so that Man can grasp more quickly his role. For, you see,
everyone has a place and everyones energies are needed. The New Age teachings are simpler than any of the
teachings of the past, for the mind has taken a quantum leap. The brain has been changed gradually, but it
has been changed. Even the body organs are making drastic changes; all of this to accommodate a new race
of Man for that is what each age is; a new race of Man. Thus, so many have come into incarnation at this
time, at the end of this cycle, to rid themselves of any karmic debts that they have imposed on themselves so
that they can incarnate in the New Age with the new energies, free of any old ties. As Mans physical body
changes and accommodations are made for his mental changes as well as his emotional changes, his spiritual
change is also very evident. So you see, New Age energies simply means new energies for a new concept,
for a new body, for a new mind, to carry on in a new way an old assignmentMan reaching his perfection!
Does that answer your question?
Paul: Very well. Very well. Man has long read about and been told about the second coming of Jesus the
Christ. What can you tell us about that occurrence in relation to the New Age?
Elder Brother: The second coming of Jesus the Christ has already taken place, for it is the second coming of
Christ through the Jesus aspect or the facet of the Christ that is relegated to Jesus. The Christ Consciousness
has already endowed man, and thus, in a more fitting way the concept of Jesus is bestowed, for you see, with
the advent of Christianity. The Christ Jesus has been charged with Man and that which has been brought
forth through the teachings of so-called Christianity. So, the second coming of Jesus the Christ is to allow
Man to understand his own beingness and to allow himself to be in the presence of his own divinity. And that
is the second coming of Jesus the Christ. But on this plane, there will manifest a light body that will be used
by the Christ Jesus for a very short period so that the people can know that they can do all things and be all
things for that is their right. Did that answer your question?
Paul: Most profoundly.
Elder Brother: Thank you.
Paul: Is it necessary for both the Eastern and Western philosophies to change in preparation for the New Age?
Paul G. Minar 135

Elder Brother: All philosophies must undergo a change to allow the new energies to be effective. Change is
progress. Philosophies are very good, but you know yourself, one day you have one philosophy and the next
day that philosophy can start changing and soon, it is not recognizable. Is that not so?
Paul: I guess people do not like to change.
Elder Brother: Thats right. They dont want to let go.
Paul: An old pair of shoes becomes comfortable but they do wear out.
Elder Brother: Thats right. And thus, Man must relieve himself of these philosophies so that we can start
again with that golden kernelthat mustard seed.
Paul: Thank you very much.
Elder Brother: You are very welcome. And have I answered all your questions?
Paul: Yes. I will spend a lifetime thinking about your responses. You have answered all of my questions.
Elder Brother: Thank you. And now, my blessings on you and that which you
are, for you have become that which you are. And now, I will depart this

Channeling Explained
138 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

Channeling Explained

Because so much of this book is composed of channeled material, I believe it is appropriate for me to explain the
meaning of the word and to state why I believe it is a worthwhile means of gathering, evaluating, and disseminating
information.
A channel is a person who claims to be able to communicate with a non-physical intelligence. They claim to be able
to receive messages, send messages, or to do both.
In my experience, the non-physical intelligence is usually referred to as the communicator. Not all communicators
are of an advanced state of spiritual development. I have worked with many Master Teachers and Ascended Master
Teachers who usually represent the highest level of communicators. The types of messages they convey are positive in
nature, providing information, counsel or spiritual teachings. These are comparable to those beings we know as Saints
and Sages.
In order for someone to channel their energies that person must also be of an advanced state of spiritual
development, otherwise they could not handle those energies or receive or transmit the messages. It is all about energy.
A good comparison would be having a transmission cable that is designed specifically to carry heavy voltage with the
channel being the equivalent of the cable. Sometimes the channel receives messages that are short, as little as one word,
or as lengthy as a dissertation or book. These beings also will not work with anyone they are not in harmony with. They
are selective about the channels with whom they interact.

No time or space in the higher realms

Because there is no time or space in the higher realms, the proximity of the communicator does not matter. The
words or impressions are instantaneous. Sometimes the channel is able to see the communicator. My friend Isabelle sees
and literally lives with the Higher Essences as she calls them. They are an integral part of her daily existence as family
members and friends are to us. When we work together gathering information through the channeling process, the
communicators speak through but do not occupy her vocal chords. That is why she does not feel a drain on her
physical strength when finished as some other channels do. She is able to stop the process and answer the telephone,
then go right back to channeling. On some occasions, she has done trance channeling which places her in a prone
position and also in a deep altered state of consciousness. Edgar Casey did trance channeling on a regular basis.
There are those who would argue that someone who claims to be channeling is actually communicating with some
aspect of their own mind, or that there are multiple personalities expressing, and sometimes that is the case. At other
times, a mischievous spirit or entity is involved. I have experienced channeling by a negative psychic who was
communicating with an equally negative entity. You have to be careful before getting involved with anyone who claims
to be in touch with the spirit world. Check them out very carefully, and use common sense. It takes experience in these
matters to judge the quality of the channel, the communicator, and the message. I also listen for a good vocabulary. The
spiritually advanced entities are articulate, knowledgeable, and wise. They abide by universal law, and are guided by love
and truth in their communications.
Channeling when done properly is a very worthwhile means of gathering and disseminating information. When I
first heard about this process many years ago, I was looking for some answers regarding a career choice along with some
other personal concerns and I needed those answers right away. I felt that a psychic could at least give me a quick answer.
So, a speedy response is a big advantage when someone needs help, especially when you are very anxious about
something. The quick answer still requires proper evaluation, but at least you have the answer immediately. The most
important consideration is the credentials of the individual, whether he or she is called a psychic, channel, medium, or
whatever. While their functions are subject to many interpretations, they are all conduits of information.
A psychic in my opinion is more of a jack-of-all-trades dealing with all sorts of psychic perception and
communication. It is a catch-all name. Websters Third New International Dictionary defines a psychic as a person
apparently sensitive to nonphysical forces. A channel sometimes specializes in spirit communication, referring clients
to a psychic for other forms of guidance. Mediums, for the most part, communicate with the spirits of departed friends,
relatives or historical figures.
Paul G. Minar 139

Regardless of whom you choose as your conduit of information, be circumspect. A good referral is also a good
beginning, but you have to be the final judge, so do your homework. The best channels in my opinion are humble and
compassionate. They are not ego-driven or money-oriented but must be compensated fairly. A high price tag does not
guarantee quality. The communicators I work with use the term we when they greet me and mostly use that term
throughout each session.
We signifies that a communicator is drawing on Universal Mind, which is information stored as part of what is
known as the Akashic Records. Just as we draw on our memory banks for information, so can anyone in a physical or
non-physical form access this great Universal Library for information, provided that they possess the capability.
The greater an individuals spiritual development, the greater the scope and depth of information that can be
obtained. God has provided special keepers or guardians for these records. We store uncountable computer files
regularly. Why cant the Master Programmer do the same? Early on, my communicators insisted that I challenge their
information and I have done so from time to time. In my experience, the highest energy coming through belongs to
Jesus the Christ, who identifies himself by saying, I am Elder Brother, and I serve.
A speedy response is just the beginning. Done properly, information is provided to you
that deals with the issues you wish to discuss. Sometimes the communicator starts a
A session with an overview before you even begin to ask questions and that overview touches
speedy response on your issues. I have even been politely reprimanded for not asking certain questions
which were on my written list. The communicator had done his homework preparing for
is just my questions and I wasted an opportunity for additional assistance. They know your
the beginning. thoughts, though they never invade your privacy, and that is why they can anticipate your
questions.
If you find someone who is very spiritual, accurate and helpful, stay with that person.
By consistently working with one credible psychic or channel, the information coming through is more reliable and
understandable, and the communicator can more easily work with your questions.
When first starting to explore psychic communication, there is a process of trial and error. It requires patience and
diligence. My first experiences involved psychic readings at small psychic fairs. As opposed to more in-depth channeling
sessions, each psychic drew on his or her psychic ability for relatively brief answers and I was never aware of the source
of the information. As time went on, I became better at choosing and evaluating psychics, but it took a great deal of
time and objective evaluation.
One of my earlier psychic readings was with an individual who took me down a dark and dangerous path. I had
assumed that person was in touch with very spiritual sources, but I was wrong. Finally, my common sense and intuition
took over and with considerable trepidation, I terminated the meetings. Shortly thereafter, I attended a psychic fair and
met with three readers in a row. Each psychic said the same thing, in essence, You have just broken a bond. Do not
look back. Your decision was correct. That was just the kind of reassurance I needed. It was also proof-positive that I
did the right thing.
So even a brief psychic reading can be very beneficial. It all depends on the credibility of the psychic. This is also an
excellent example of the kind of help our guides provide. This was a real hands-on approach to a very serious situation,
because I had fears about breaking a bond that I might regret. Dont be intimidated by someones psychic ability. Its up
to them to demonstrate the quality and truth of their work. Shortly after that
experience, I met Isabelle and though I had no real expectations as to the extent of her
I t all depends on abilities, it took just one session with her to convince me that I had not only met
the credibility of someone exceptional but I was finally on the right path. This time I found a spiritual
teacher, as well as someone with very special psychic ability. Isabelle prefers to be called
the psychic. a clear channel. She explained the clear aspect as a condition in which her pipeline
reaches directly to the Higher Essences, those spiritual beings on a level with Saints and
Sages, and there can be no distortion or disruption of that energy flow. She further
explains that the information she receives comes through the Christ Light, that brightest of white-light emanations that
belongs only to Jesus the Christ and is grounded in truth and love. The energy radiating from each created soul has a
color and the highest and brightest belongs to Jesus, in whose care the Creator has entrusted this planet Earth.
140 N u m b e r s : T h e E n e r g y F o r c e s I n Yo u r N a m e

In my opinion, after twenty-five years of working with her professionally, Isabelle is everything I had ever hoped to
find in a psychic and much, much more.
We all possess psychic ability, some more than others, and that ability is as natural and proper as any other abilities
we have. It is a part of our heritage as children of God. Some call it intuition. Psychic ability is also referred to as psi.

Controversy regarding psychic ability

There is considerable controversy regarding the validity of psychic ability, but there have been enough studies and
research projects to confirm this phenomenon. There have also been numerous published reports in professional
publications and on television. It is no secret that a government agency has had some success testing long distance
telepathy and imaging abilities in the interests of national security. Also, psychic and metaphysical pursuits are not at
odds with spirituality, only someones perceived notion of spirituality.
There is nothing to fear about exploring positive uses of our mental powers. By the way, the word occult is not
part of my vocabulary. These days it has a negative connotation. Websters dictionary defines it as something mysterious
or supernatural, secret, deliberately kept hidden. I believe it is time to remove the veil of secrecy from many areas of
our lives, especially regarding metaphysics, religion and spirituality. The truth shall set you free is an old saying but
it is still the best way to approach the subject of spiritual search and it also applies to every aspect of our existence and
growth.
In conclusion, the subject of channeling is a fascinating one. If you are wondering about my abilities, I can only say
that it has come naturally for me to write with someone like Pythagoras, but it has taken quite some time.
I do not do readings at this time except for intuitive interpretation of Numerology and related concepts, but I am
working diligently on developing my skills in that area, so as to do a better job as a Numerologist and to do a better job
of helping people to understand themselves, the world around them and non-physical realities.
When I work with the tarot and numbers, they trigger my ability to realize new or expanded interpretations I can
apply to my personal work. We can all improve our psychic abilities along with our spiritual development. Both of these
conditions are a more natural process than we realize. Both are greatly enhanced by proper motivationusing our God-
given abilities no matter what they are to assist those in need and, as Elder Brother has emphasized so many times, to
serve.
A Final Word
from the Author

If you were asked to state the most meaningful part of your life, you would probably say it was the love shared with
family and friends. Think of Numerology as the magnifying lens that allows you to see and understand each of them
in greater detail, and equally important, to see how they relate to one another and to you.
It is the magnifying mirror that allows you to see and understand yourself in greater detail as well. It is like comparing
a small, black and white television screen with the wide expanse of a High Definition TV. Nine creative numbers are
the energy forces that allow this magnificent panorama to unfold as you use each one by itself or in a particular
