Numerology is the science of numbers. Numerology deals with the mystic influences of numbers as they help us trace the lifetime events of an individual. The entire branch of arithmetic deals with numbers; so does statistics. Numerology deals with definition and prediction and is as such allied to astrology, palmistry, physiognomy and other such branches of occult teaching.

Number 1 to 9 are called basic numbers because all other numbers are produced by putting these basic numbers one after the other. All numbers are permutations and combinations of these basic numbers. Zero is not included in the basic numbers because zero signifies nothing.

According to the principles of Numerology, a large number can be reduced to the basic number by adding each of its digits with the others. And the process is repeated until a single number is achieved.

Example: 2,356,438,971

add up all the digits of the number

2 + 3 + 5 + 6 + 4 + 3 + 8 + 9 + 7 + 1 = 48

Add the digits again 4 + 8 = 12
