# Numerology - The Number Of Life Path

Each person possesses own Course of Existence Life path Number. Numerology suggests it is the most crucial digit. Its name is quite explanatory itself, as it is supposed to provide advice on preferred course of one’s life, which will make that person closer to fulfillment. And the task of deriving your Course of Existence Number by yourself is not problematical at all.

Here we will perform all needed calculations. For instance, suppose we are determining the Course of Existence number for an individual who was born on April 27, 1984. First, put it down in digits, i.e. 4/27/1984. Next step is to reduce each number containing more than 1 digit. April’s digital notation is already 1-digit, namely 4, and so it doesn’t undergo reduction. Day is 27, 2-digit, so reduction is required: 2 + 7 = 9 (just sum up digits separately).

Similarly we reduce yr. number, 1984 = 1 + 9 + 8 + 4 = 22. Here result is still 2-digit, so we sum it up again. 2 + 2 = 4. Up to this moment we’ve derived three numbers: 4 comes from month, 9 comes from day, 4 comes from year. Add up these results. 4 + 9 + 4 = 17 = 1 + 7 = 8. Comprehendible enough, isn’t it? So finally, someone who was born on April 27, 1984 has a Course of Existence Number equal to 8.
