Your Soul Number, often referred to as the Heart’s Desire Number, uses your full birth name as it appears on your birth certificate. The Soul Number is determined by applying a numeric value to each vowel and adding them together. You continue to add and then break them down until you reach a number from 1 – 9.
It’s especially interesting to look at how your Soul Number changes when you change your name. (For example, if you get married and take your spouse’s name.) You never lose your birth Soul Number; you’ll just have two (or more) Soul Numbers.
Your Soul Number reflects the energy of opening to give or receive love energy. It is where you open your heart to a person or place. Check the Birth, Destiny and Soul Numbers of those you love. Even your favorite addresses often have your Soul Number.
Here are the vowels and their numerical equivalents according to modern numerology techniques:
*Only if used as a vowel sound
As an example: Sherry is 5+7 = 12, 1+2 = 3, Yolanda is 6+1+1 = 8. Since Sherry’s Y replaces a vowel and Yolanda’s Y doesn’t, you only count it in Sherry’s Soul Number.
So my name, (remember you have to use your full name, so I can’t use Josh), Joshua would be:
(O,U,A) 6+3+1= 10, 1+0= 1 – so my Soul Number is 1.
