Soul Urge Number 9
Your soul urge number is one of the main numbers that numerologists use to create a complete numerological chart.
The soul urge number, unlike your destiny or life path numbers, is intensely spiritual and has a lot to tell you about your interior life.
Your inner wisdom has been with you since before you were born, and in many ways it has helped to shape your personality, including your preferences, desires and your inner sense of calling by which we all secretly gauge our sense of success in this life.
By figuring out your soul surge number and heeding its directives, you will be able to get a much clearer picture of the meaning and purpose of your life.
Calculating Your Soul Urge Number
Traditionally, the soul urge number has been determined by the day of the month in which you were born. Those who have a soul urge number of 9 are born on the 9th, 18th or 27th of any month.
Numerologist may also determine the soul urge number by calculating the values of the vowels in your birth name. This is done by consulting a special letter chart that provides a value for each letter of the alphabet.
Numerologists add up the values of the vowels in your complete birth name, first, middle and last. It is important not to use nickname or shortened version of your name to calculate your soul urge number.
The number must be derived from the name that you were given when you ventured from spirit and took material form.
The Meaning of Number 9
The number 9 is the highest of the root numbers in Numerology and as a vibrational energy represents on of the highest levels of spiritual attainment.
If there is a number that is associated with global consciousness, it is the number 9. Those who have the vibration of number 9 act in a way that is generous to all, even to their own personal detriment at times.
9 is a number that is associated with spiritual wisdom, intuition and the broadest possible view of life. In Zen one of the characteristics of mind is called ‘Big Mind’ and denotes a state of mental clarity in which the largest view or perspective becomes evident.
