Lucky Numbers at Home: Understanding Numerology in Feng Shui

Numbers are the highest degree of knowledge. It is knowledge itself.


In Feng Shui, everything is a metaphor or symbol of something larger. Each aspect of our environment plays a crucial role in shaping the energy flow and overall harmony of our spaces. One often overlooked yet profoundly impactful element is the vibrational energy of numbers within a home. In this post we'll explore the numerology of our homes and how it can provide valuable insights into our lives.

The Basics of Numerology

Numerology is the belief in the mystical significance of numbers and their influence on various aspects of life. In the ancient teachings of Feng Shui, numbers are believed to carry specific vibrations that can affect the energy of a space. By analyzing the numerical value of house numbers, Feng Shui practitioners can uncover hidden patterns and potential challenges within a home.

Calculating the numerology of your house number involves a simple process of reducing the digits to a single digit number, which becomes the overall theme of the home.

Here's how you do it:

  1. Write down your house number.

For example, if your house number is 1234, write down each digit: 1, 2, 3, 4.

2. Add all the digits together.

Using the example above, add 1 + 2 + 3 + 4, which equals 10.

3. If the sum is a double-digit number, reduce it further by adding the digits together.

In this case, 1 + 0 = 1.

4. The resulting single-digit number is your house's numerology number.

In the example above, the numerology of the house number 1234 is 1.

If your house number is already a single-digit number or a master number (11, 22, or 33), then that number is your house's numerology number.

"In the world of numbers, each number has a unique vibration, and each vibration has a unique influence."

Ultimately, Feng Shui is about creating harmony and balance in your environment, so it's essential to consider the overall energy flow and arrangement of elements in your space rather than focusing solely on specific numbers.

"Numbers are not just symbols; they are living energies with profound significance and power."
