Sat Nam. Sharing with you this month this jewel from Hari Nam on how to calculate your heart number (or someone else's.) Enjoy!
The Heart number contains the language of your emotions, as well as what you need to have fulfilled in a relationship. Especially a romantic relationship! The numbers represent different emotional dialects, and within the scope of each dialect there can be the experience of, “You’re talking my language!”
Let’s take a look at what you need to have fulfilled, as well as what needs to be tended to by those who care about you.
CALCULATE YOUR HEART NUMBER
The Heart number is derived from the addition of your Mastery number, the month of birth, and your Gift number, the last two digits of the year of birth. This number either is, or would be reduced down to a number from 2 to 11.
Let’s take a look at a few examples of this.
If you were born on June 19, 1957, your Mastery number would be a 6, and your Gift would be a 12.
Mastery of 6 + Gift of 12 = 18
1 + 8 = 9
Heart of 9
Birthdate of December 3, 1980
Mastery of 12 + Gift of 8
3 + 8 = 11
Heart of 11
Birthdate of February 1, 2002
Mastery of 2 + Gift of 2
2 + 2 = 4
Heart of 4
Birthdate of September 10, 2005
Mastery of 9 + Gift of 5
9 + 5 = 14
1 + 4 = 5
Heart of 5
Birthdate of January 2, 1970
Mastery of 1 + Gift of 7
1 + 7 = 8
Heart of 8
Remember, you always reduce down to a number from 2 to 11. If you were born in January of the year 2000, your Heart number would be a 10. Zero is important in the science of Numerology, as it acts as an amplifier.
Your consciousness then decides whether the amplification is positive or negative.
INTERPRETATION OF HEART NUMBER
Heart of 2 or 20: Number 2 represents the “Longing to Belong,” and the need for cozy, trustful relationships. Inclusiveness is important to the 2 Heart, so don’t forget to invite them to the party, or they’ll never forget it.
Loyalty and devotion are the virtues of a 2 Heart, and they can be very good marriage partners. It is imperative that this 2 chooses wisely in love, as a partner with a “wandering eye” will cause them an enormous amount of strain and difficulty.
Two’s need to remember to turn “Emotion to Devotion,” thereby channeling what can be excessive emotional energy. Heart of 2 is generally very acquiescing to your needs, just be sure to check in from time to time if you begin to notice any passive/aggressive behavior. They sometimes can find it difficult to communicate directly, as they hate conflict.
Heart of 3: The Heart of 3 is playful, mischievous, creative, and is also vulnerable to intense mood swings. Having a creative project or avenue for their wonderful nurturing energy is important for maintaining their happiness. Heart of 3 needs nurturing energy in a relationship, as they would suffer terribly with anyone who is a “cold fish” archetype.
Keep an open mind with this loving heart, as they will always have new ideas to share and entertain. Number 3 represents food, so you’ll be off to a good start if you invite them out to a restaurant they like, or better still, a scrumptious home cooked meal. Children may be on their mind in the big picture of life, so be sure this is something you want too before making a commitment.
In the negative polarity, sometimes the number 3 can have a secret bad habit, so be sure for your sake there are no hidden addictions in their life. If so, offer support, and see if they would like to work their way out of it. If not, bail out. This type of drama can get very draining over time.
Heart of 4: “Say what you mean, and mean what you say!” proclaims the number 4. Be on time for that first date, or you’ll be losing points before you walk through the front door. Consistency, reliability, and feeling taken care of all strike a positive high note with the 4 Heart. Don’t be in a hurry in the Romance Department, as they need to feel that you are worthy of their affections. And worthiness is proven over time by a steady character and work ethic. Also, being someone who has a plan, even a vision for your life, will have them thinking, “That’s my kinda guy/gal!”
Four represents words, and a 4 Heart needs to hear the right words to feel secure and loved. It’s not enough to say, “You know I love you, I told you last week!” Nearly every cloud can be moved from the sky if you give them a big hug and say, “You are the Sunshine of my life.”
Heart of 5: Keep an open mind, and be way flexible with the Heart of 5, as they are the wild card in the deck. Freedom is a keynote theme for 5’s, and they hate to feel tethered or tied down in any way. “You’ll wait a long time for me,” could be their favorite line from a song, and you will need to adjust to their spontaneous energy and drive. Five’s can be a lot of fun, as long as it’s you they are focused on. The spiritual test for 5’s is to learn discipline and consistency, so they may experience the depth of their own conscious maturity.
Sex is usually important to this 5, as number 5 represents the physical body, as well as the five senses. “Don’t tell me you love me, prove it!” could be their motto. The 5 Heart will typically need to sow a few wild oats before they are ready to settle down with one person.
Heart of 6: “There’s no place like home,” is the mantra of the 6 Heart, and they want someone who is a protector and provider. Keeping the home fires burning with love, loyalty, and family meals will put a smile on their face. Honesty and commitment, as well as sacrifice for “the good of all” resonates strongly with the 6 Heart. Number 6 represents family, love, and community, so be sure you’re in alignment with these core values, or you’ll be guilt-tripped to death when you try and walk out the door.
Heart of 6 can be one of the best marriage partners, as they would like everyone to stay together.
Heart of 7: The 7 Heart has a unique emotional landscape, as they often do not share their feelings too easily. Trust is a big issue for them, and you had better not break a bond of trust, or it will be a long hard road to regain it. The 7 Heart needs time to think things through, as they hate to feel pressured in any way. Try to connect with them on things of a spiritual or intellectual nature, as they love to talk and commune on their pet subjects.
If he/she is into organic gardening, go online and learn about the latest mulching techniques. Yep, that’s what will turn the tide in your favor. Sevens want to feel understood and appreciated for what they most dearly value in life.
They often can appear aloof or emotionally disconnected, however, this is just a protective maneuver. They are giving themselves time to figure things out. Finding out their favorite kind of music, and humming a few bars as you walk through the door will peak their curiosity about you.
Heart of 8: The Heart of 8 is robust, daring, and wants to feel the fullness of life! Not one to be shy, they are more likely to be ready, willing and able to step up to the plate and take a chance on love. An active sex life is typically one of their priorities, so someone who is too much of a blushing wallflower will not likely last in their world. Power is important to them, whether it be through money, career, health or spirituality, the 8 Heart is impressed by worthy accomplishments. Flattery will get you somewhere; just don’t overdo it. Look your best for this 8, as they would not like anyone on their arm who doesn’t match up to their personal standards. Once convinced of your affections and loyalty, they can be quite generous.
Heart of 9: If sensitivity had a hiding place, it would be in the Heart of 9. Oh my, careful what you say or even think, as they can pick up on everything. A subtle, measured, and patient approach is best here, as they are the custodians of romance. “Slow cook to savor,” might be their motto, as they are artisans of creating a lovely mood and environment to enjoy.
If you pursue a Heart of 9, be sure that you are focused on them entirely, as they have a stealth radar that can pick up on any lingering distractions. To quote Shakespeare, “Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned.” Whew!
Heart of 10: The Heart of 10 is either “All in,” or, couldn’t be bothered. They can be brilliantly loyal, and one of their best features is that they don’t give up easily. Superlatives work well with them, as in, “Wow, you look great in that outfit!”
If you can find out what they feel passionate about, or what they would like to achieve, then you have some real currency for connecting with them. Once they feel like you’re on their team, the 10 Heart will really open up and want to bring you along.
Never disrespect them in public, even in a joking way, as you will lose your good standing in their eyes. Remember, loyalty and respect go a long way with the number 10.
Heart of 11: Such a peculiar universe is the Heart of 11, and it takes a flexible and open mind to roll with their sometimes quirky behavior. In one moment they can be entirely focused on you and the cross-country road trip you’re about to take together, and then they can flip to being quite cool and stand-offish. Such is their electrical energy, always moving to the next point of interest. You may have to send up a flare at times as in, “Hey, hello, remember me over here?” This 11 needs to be trained in a way, so that they remember to circle back around to the one that’s got their back. Know that sometimes you will be on your own if you commit to them, so developing your own emotional resources of support will help keep you in balance.
Eleven represents music and the sound current of Infinity, so inviting them out to a musical event is a good way to connect. They often have unusual or specialized interests, and you may want to go online and study-up on Celtic drumming before that next date. You being someone of interest through your unique achievements is an impressive feature to the 11 Heart.
Oh, by the way, as far as sex goes they are either entirely in the mood, or, will look at you like they don’t even know what you are talking about. Patience pays with these folks.
“When you are in Love, you have reverence. When you have Love,
you have ecstasy, you have the strength of the whole Universe,
including that of God.
It is the mighty self of Love which brought God from
the unknown heavens to the planet Earth.
