When faced with parenting challenges, we often quip about how kids don’t come with an instruction manual and how much easier child rearing would be if they did. But what if each of us did come with some kind of instruction manual? One that not only helped us understand and guide our children as we raise them, but also gave us a deeper awareness about ourselves within each unique parent-child relationship? That gift is exactly what numerology can unlock for each of us; a sort of guide book to help us better understand the energies that make us who we are, that flow in and out of our lives, and that influence our choices. Numerology can be a powerful tool, allowing us to better understand our children and the energies that exist between us and each of our sons and daughters.
A Personal Reading with Julia and Lily
Meet Julia. Julia has a daughter, Lily, who is about to turn 13. Curious as to what lies ahead for her daughter as she enters this next major developmental stage, she reached out to numerology as a way to gain greater insight into her daughter to help her navigate the challenges and lean into the joys of becoming a teenager. Over the next few weeks we will explore Lily’s energies through numerology to illustrate just how numbers can create insight and guidance for our lives through the lens of one mother-daughter relationship.
First, we look at Lily’s core energy, the energy that makes her who she is and sets the foundation for understanding all the other energies that exist, and will come to exist, in her life. Her Life Path Number, which is derived from the month, day and year of birth, is the number that reveals a broad outline of the opportunities, challenges and lessons she will encounter during this lifetime. When understood, it can be used to encourage her personal growth.
Lily’s Life Path numbers are a 17/8 which highlights matters of power, money material success and business. This life path tells us that Lily wants to be a leader and she possesses the energy of a fighter; someone who is determined and ambitious enough to reach whatever goals she sets for herself. The energy around these numbers can be very intense, so as she develops, helping her to find positive outlets for this energy is encouraged. For example: Julia’s support of Lily in activities like athletics would be one way to help her daughter release and manage such energies.
Lily’s life path also indicates that she us a good judge of character and will easily able to identify the people in her life that can help her grow and help her get to where she wants to be. As a mother, Julia can help her understand and trust this natural instinct, which will build Lily’s confidence in trusting her intuition around the people and relationships that enter her life. The number 8 in Lily’s Life Path reflects that of the survivor; someone who is strong and resilient despite any setbacks experienced. From each fall, Lilly will learn. So, it will be important for Julia to allow Lily to make mistakes and, as her mother, help her learn and grow from each mistake made.
Parenting will present its challenges at time for a daughter like Lily, but with a deeper awareness of who Lily is at the core, Julia can learn to parent with more patience and compassion. She can also help guide Lily by teaching her mindfulness around ambitious endeavors and reminding her that it is just as important to work towards your goals as it is to connect and nurture the relationships of the people around you. As we celebrate our relationship with our mothers this month, we will continue to explore numerology as a tool to help Julia deepen her relationship with her daughter, Lily. Next week, we will explore how Julia can nurture, guide and activate the energies that influence Lily’s talents, ambitions and heart’s desires as she enters her teen years and transitions into adulthood.
