Where did angel numbers come from?

Are you curious to know when and where did angel numbers originate? Who invented angel numbers?

To find the answers, we will have to dive a bit into the invention of numerology. 

Pythagoras, a master mathematician, scientist, and philosopher, believed that all things were made of numbers. 

He discovered that there was a numerical relationship between numbers and musical notes. He found that the vibrations in stringed instruments could be mathematically explained. 

According to him, all the numbers ranging from 1-9 hold certain energy and vibrations.

The monad or number 1 represented the origin of all things.

The Dyad or number 2 represented matter, and number 3 was ideal. 

He also considered the odd numbers to be definite and masculine and the even numbers indefinite and feminine.

Angel numbers drew heavily on the teachings of Pythagorean numerology. 

The proponents of angelic numerology believed that numbers are not just quantities, but they carry mystical and symbolic significance.

Who invented angel numbers?

The term angel number is a relatively new one, an offshoot of the New Age Movement. 

Doreen Virtue, a new age observer, coined this term. According to her, the numbers we encounter repeatedly are not coincidental.

Notably, they are secret messages from the spiritual realms brought to us by our guardian angels and spirit guides.

Can angel numbers be any number?

Angel numbers can be any numbers that could show up in your everyday life in the form of numbers, provided they stand out to you in a meaningful way.

Let us understand this with the help of an example.

Say you see number 111 on your way to work.

Then you don’t see this sequence again for days, and while seeing that number, nothing stuck out in your mind.

In that case, 111 is not an angel sign for you.

However, let’s assume the number 222 grabbed your attention while checking your phone.

Then while watching your favorite TV show, 222 appeared again.

Later that day, you went for a walk and saw 222 on a license plate.

You wonder if the number 222 is showing up just by luck or there’s more to it. 

Remember this, any number sequence that repeats and grabs your attention for a while is an angel sign for you.

How to read angel numbers?

Angelic numerology is a great tool to help you interpret and decode the hidden message behind the appearance of any number.

Each number carries mystical and spiritual significance that you can unveil knowing what the number’s vibration and energy are.

Single-digit numbers are easy to comprehend. All you need is to know the vibration and energy associated with that number.

In the case of different number combinations, the general rule is to add and reduce till you get a single-digit, except for Master Numbers, which are not reduced. There are three Master Numbers 11, 22, and 33.

The meaning of angel numbers in combinations heavily depends on the reduced number.

However, the influences of the numbers that are reduced also play a part in extracting the meanings.

For example, let’s assume you see angel number 222 on a digital display.

To interpret this number, step one would be to add all the numbers=2+2+2=6

In this case, you get a single-digit 6. Angel number 6 resonates with the attributes and energies of balance, stability, unconditional love, home and family, nurturing, and service.

Now, let’s assume you see angel number 4444.

You add all the numbers, and you get a 16.

Now, reduce again to single-digit=1+6=7

In the case of Angel number 4444, it carries the influences and vibrations of number 7, and also contains the energy and vibrations of number 4.

In terms of percentage, the influence of number 7 would be 80%, and the influence of number 4, maybe 20%.

What does it mean to see synchronicity in numbers? 

Carl Jung, a Swiss psychologist, first coined the word synchronicity to define the meaningful coincidence of two or more events where something other than the probability of chance is involved. 

In other words, synchronicity refers to the events in one’s life that have meaning yet can’t be explained.

He was the first who brought the concept of synchronicity as a phenomenon of energy with noncausal events in his work Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle (1952). 

Jung believed that synchronicity often occurs when there is a lowering of consciousness, at which time unconscious content becomes more active.

According to Jung, synchronicity can be recognized in various signs such as dreams, symbols, random events, spontaneous encounters, and numbers. 

Angel numbers are one of the notable signs of synchronicity and confirm that the viewer is in alignment. 

He noticed that numbers often display a meaning for which there is no causal explanation. Jung believed that numbers have special cosmic significance and can predict future events.

How to find your angel number?

You have a personal angel number attuned just to you. 

With a simple calculation, you can find your angel number and hold communication with your spiritual guides.

Here’s a step by step formula to find your angel number:

First step is to find your life path number.

To do so, enter your full date of birth in a series of numbers.

For instance, a person born on 16 November 1996 has a series of numbers as of 16111996.

Add up the digits (1+6+1+1+1+9+9+6=34).

Reduce it to a single-digit (3+4=7).

The number you get is your life path number. In this case, your path number is 7.

If you calculate your angel number and get an 11, 22, or 33, these numbers are reduced any further because they are Master Numbers.

Once you figured out your life path number, you have to pay attention to any numbers that appear with your life path number.

Your secret angel number is the number that followed your life path number.

To figure out your angel number, you need to know your life path number. You can ask your angel guides to work with you in helping you decipher your angel number, and your life path number is a clue. Check out our extensive list of angel numbers and decode your angel number meaning.
