I don’t know about you but I remember only too well how panic stricken I was about what I was going to do when I finished high school. My parents had saved long and hard for me so I could have an educational savings plan…but to do what? What was I good at? What was my purpose?
The only clues I had about my future came from what I felt in my heart. I wanted to do the Equine Program at Humber College in Toronto because my passion was horses but my parents told me I would never make a living working with horses so I chose to abandon that dream. Sigh.
Dad always said if I could type I could always put food on my table. He even bought me a brand new typewriter on the promise I would continue to take typing in high school. (Pause while I drive a fork into my forehead!) Ugh.
It would appear that I was doomed. Anything I was passionate about wasn’t “good enough.” God knows I didn’t want to disappoint them but clearly my passions were being squashed by the hopes and dreams of my parents who really only wanted the best for me anyway.
I totally believe that any pre-natal class should include a basic understanding of Numerology! If my parents had understood the significance of my life path number 7 they may have been more inclined to allow me to confidently follow in my dreams of working with horses. Instead I went on to study Travel and Tourism to become a travel agent. That career was cut short when I sent a guy to St. John’s Newfoundland who really wanted to go to Saint John, New Brunswick. I say tomato you say tomato. Maybe he should have looked more closely at his ticket! Just say’n.
Now don’t get me wrong. I am not blaming my parents for my failure as a travel agent. They were doing the best they could. They had guided me my whole life so why would they stop here?
Both of my parents held a belief that money was hard to get and that you had to make responsible decisions or you would not be able to support yourself. They really had a “half empty cup – have not kind of belief system.” After 20 years of growing up with my parents this belief system became mine too.
I have an expression number of 5 which says I included in my soul’s contract a need for change. I need to take risks and challenge myself more but my upbringing says to never risk anything for fear of financial ruin!!
Do you see where I am going with this?
Your child chose their date of birth based upon the lessons they want to learn while they are here. Their date of birth includes what they are good at and what careers might fill their hearts desire. Wouldn’t it be great if we knew this from day one and while we raised our children we were able to offer them opportunities to experience things they are definitely talented in? Numerology takes the guess work out of what we are good at and why we are here! Our dates of birth and our names on our birth certificates create the soul’s contract that we agreed to live out in this life time. It’s our road map or our blue print! Following your blue print is a recipe for success!
