As I began reading a book on Egyptian Numerology I was surprised to see so many references to Christianity. I was taken aback at first due to their direct opposition to numerology.  I did appreciate the introduction to the author in the first part of the book.  I think many metaphysical publishers forget that this is key when presenting works to those who work with energy.  We like to know who we're working with so please include these.  

Chapter two - Know thyself is the key in many fields of study.  Learn who you are and that will tell you how you approach the world. This books seems to be written from the perspective that those who work in numerology are hidden.  While I agree that some of the metaphysical arts are frowned on, just ask a Hoohoo practitioner, I would say that for the most part, numerology is one of the most accepted forms of divination aside from astrology.  

Chapter four left me scratching my head.  Again the author references Christianity as the authority to which numerology is practiced.  There is a prayer to St. Francis of Assisi at the beginning while references Edgar Cayce and Paramahansa Yogananda.  Certainly a diverse group to pull upon when discussing this topic and continues in chapter five saying that God is the center of all numbers. The alpha and omega.  As an atheist, I was beginning to feel that this book wasn't for me. It reminds me of those Ancient Aliens shows that reference the Christian bible as proof of alien life. I just sit back and shake my head.  

The book continues in part two working with meditation and the chakras. Each one broken down by number, element, weekday, planet, metal, season, direction, animal, color, sound, mantra, organ, angel, scent and affirmation.  While the individual affirmations are relatively standard for metaphysical work the final one is as follows:

I am the pulse of the blessed Mother Earth.I am the universal flow.I am the divine creation.I am the will of God.I speak only my highest good.I seek only my highest good.I am open to only to the divine. (4)

Chapter 13 in part three delves into Soul Urge Numbers. Basically this is said to determine what your soul is urging you to accomplish in your lifetime.  According to the author your soul urge number is simply the day you were born.  In my case it would be 26. 

#26  - Treasurer - Universal charity, wealth, love, harmony, and peace (1)

While not totally inaccurate, if the numbers saw my dyslexia with numbers the last thing they would want me to do is work with the numbers.   The chapter continues with a break down of exactly what each Soul Urge Number means.

.... You have a rare strength in the sense of responsibility when to comes to caring for others, your work, and family.  You possess a strong dedication, a taste for the finer things in life and the ability to attract what you set your attentions on; and the charity you share with others will go a long way in bringing balance to the world.

The subsequent chapters go into defining other important numbers, yet the chart to calculating them is strangely positioned at the end of all of them.  The author tells us that the South Path, Main Karmic Lesson and Soul Life Purpose, just to name a few, can be used to understand your destiny.

The Soul Path for example is calculated by adding your birthday, birth month and birth year together.

26 (day)
02 (month)
1969 (year)
1997 = 26/4
26/4= 8/4 = 2

My Soul Life Path Number comes to 2.

You have an eye for beauty and a taste for creativity, you add a pleasant flavour to all situations gracefully.  Because you strive to understand both sides of a situation equally, you are a healer and a natural diplomat. (3)

After reviewing the text related to the number two, I found that it was indeed, me.  While I'm not a fan of all the God/Angel references in the book, I can say that it was very interesting reading about the different numbers and understanding how I could look to them to see who I am. I am still a little confused about how this is specifically Egyptian Numerology vs. any other type but it was a good read.  

I recommend checking this book a go and checking out your life numbers. Certainly different than anything I have read to this point.
