  • What Is Your Life Path Number?

    To get to the root number which will describe your life path, you need to reduce your birth date down to a single digit (unless it reduces down to 11 or 22)

    Firstly, we do this by reducing the day, month and year that you were born.

    So 12th December 1991 would become…

    Day (12)  ➳  1 + 2 = 3

    Month (12)  ➳  1 + 2 = 3

    Year (1991)  ➳  1 + 9 + 9 + 1 = 20

    then 2 + 0 = 2

    Then we do the same with the Day, Month & Year added together…

    Day + Month + Year = Life Path Number

    3 + 3 + 2 = 8

    So the Life Path Number for someone born on 12/12/1991 would be 8

    Once you’ve broken down your birth date, scroll down for its meaning in numerology!

    As the first number, people with life path number 1 are born to be leaders. They are bold, independent, and will thrive in scenarios where they can demonstrate their skills of leadership and innovation (eg, entrepreneurship). Life path number 1’s march to the beat of their own drum, and so their lesson in life is to balance the pursuit of their own goals with an understanding that other people have their own needs, goals and desires too. If number 1’s can be respectful of what other people want, they’ll achieve more in the long run because they’ll have the support of a loyal team around them to amplify their solo efforts. Cooperation isn’t a quality that comes naturally to people with this life path number, but when they can combine it with their own fierce potential – they’re in a strong position to blaze new trails.

    Famous life path number 1’s include Tom Hanks, Matt LeBlanc, Sting, Scarlett Johansson, Ozzy Osbourne, Bruce Springsteen

    Those born with life path number 2 bring the world compassion and balance through their diplomatic tendencies. They hope for peace in all situations and treasure their close personal relationships. People feel relaxed and at ease when they’re around 2’s, because they possess an uncanny ability to restore a sense of calm to those who need it most. They are generous souls who love to be in nature and gain personal satisfaction from developing other people; if other people are in balance, then it helps them to feel balanced too. Their main lesson in this life is to avoid over compromising on their own needs in the pursuit of peace, and to clearly express their own opinions so that they’re not always stuck in the role of peacekeeper for other people.

    Famous life path number 2’s include Jennifer Aniston, Emma Watson, Gwenyth Paltrow, Tony Blair

    People with life path number 3 are here to entertain. They add vibrant colour to the world with their quirky personality, and inspiration naturally flows through them. As a result, people love to watch 3’s in action and they may find themselves performing on stage from a young age. They long to express themselves creatively and want to shine in whatever situation they find themselves in – from the office floor to the dance floor! Unsurprisingly, Hollywood is full of life path number 3’s. They are perfect candidates for the spotlight as they have been blessed with inbuilt confidence and enjoy being the centre of attention. Their main learning curve will be to integrate their fun and creative persona with the mundane aspects of everyday life.

    Famous life path number 3’s include Kendrick Lamar, Reese Witherspoon, Kevin Spacey, John Travolta, Liam Neeson

    The most disciplined of the bunch, people with life path number 4 crave stability across all areas of their life. This means that they’re averse to taking risks and could be viewed as headstrong by others because they will resist taking shortcuts or trying new things. These traits of focus and persistence can mean that they’re incredibly powerful workhorses though. Once they have found a purpose or technique that works for them, they have the opportunity to be incredibly diligent as they move towards their goals – while being able to sidestep distractions. Their main lesson in this life is to be more flexible so that they can learn from the experiences that change can offer them.

    Famous life path number 4’s include Oprah Winfrey, Frank Sinatra, Arnold Schwartzenegger

    The 5’s are the free spirits of the group, craving freedom and a constant flow of new experiences. They instinctively need variety and will quickly feel stifled and stagnant if they’ve been confined for too long; they prefer to feel as though they’re expanding and experiencing change on a regular basis. Other people might describe them as ‘the life and soul of the party’ because they love to meet new people as another type of exploration. Their free and breezy nature may also make them prone to struggle with timekeeping! Their challenge in this lifetime will be to honour their commitments, while finding freedom rather than restriction in the things that they need to show up for.

    Famous life path number 5’s include Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Dr Dre, Vincent Van Gogh, J.K Rowling, Steven Spielberg, Liv Tyler, Uma Therman, Denzel Washington, Sigourney Weaver

    You may find yourself inexplicably drawn to people who are born under life path number 6 because they’re naturally charismatic and charming, without being overbearing. They bring harmony into situations and are able to balance all areas of their life with a natural ease that’s unfamiliar to most people. “How does she do it?” is what other people might think to themselves when they’re with a life path number 6. By nature they are nurturing and kind, and invest themselves heavily into their family and friendships; as a result, their lesson in this lifetime is to cope with betrayal from other people who aren’t as invested as they are. This can be a painful lesson to learn, but 6’s are more than happy to make small sacrifices for the benefit of others and can expect to have a lifetime full of positive relationships.

    Famous life path number 6’s include Jessica Alba, Victoria Beckham, Justin Timberlake, Thomas Edison, Sarah Michelle Geller

    People with life path number 7 are on a quest to acquire knowledge, and so may find themselves in careers that require extensive studying such as a lawyer, scientist or architect. This attraction to study also means that they’re likely to feel great comfort and contentment in solitude, as it gives them the chance to focus their attention on studying solutions to life’s great problems. They can often be found in their own head, where they’re busy analysing things and seeking deeper understanding of the physical or spiritual realms. Due to these tendencies, their lesson in this lifetime is to open themselves up to relationships more easily and allow other people into their world. Other people can be an amazing untapped resource of education for 7’s, both in an emotional sense and through sharing new ideas.

    Famous life path number 7’s include Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Marilyn Monroe, Christian Bale

    The 8’s are the born money makers of the group! They are inherently driven, ambitious and sit comfortably in positions of authority – all of which make them prime candidates to bring home the big bucks. They are resilient and confident, and so would not shy away from a confrontation like some of the other numbers. They’d much rather be in a position of authority themselves than be under someone else’s authority, and may therefore be thought of as rule breakers or trouble makers; particularly in their youth. Whatever career they choose to be in, it’s likely that they’ll do the job well and quickly earn the respect of their colleagues. Their life lesson will be to balance their pursuit of material success with the areas of their life which require a more subtle emotional approach – such as love relationships.

    Famous life path number 8’s include Neil Armstrong, Giorgio Armani, Naomi Campbell, Bjork, Penelope Cruz

    People with life path number 9 are likely to turn towards a spiritual journey at some point in this lifetime. They are idealistic and compassionate, and other people will say that they have a utopian view of the world. As a result, they’ll feel called to pursue work with meaning that contributes to a cause greater than themselves. They can see the big picture and are unlikely to focus on the small differences between people. This egalitarian outlook will make them a master at bringing people together, regardless of social biases. They are imaginative, creative and will endeavour to make the world a more beautiful place; not only for their own life – but for everyone else too. Their lesson in this lifetime is to avoid being tempted into anything which doesn’t allow them to express their humanitarian nature, as they’ll quickly find it unfulfilling.

    Famous life path number 9’s include Mother Theresa, Jim Carrey, Morgan Freeman

    People born under life path number 11 are gifted healers and will often ride a rollercoaster of life experiences early on to equip them with the empathy and understanding that they’ll need to heal others. Spiritual interests will feel fascinating to people with this life path, and 11 is often called “the number of the psychic”. People would think of them as mystical, intuitive, sensitive and philosophical – as well as creative and visionary. Their lesson in this lifetime is to overcome the fear and doubt that their sensitive nature will bring up in them, in order to trust that their intuition will guide them to the ways they can offer healing and enlightenment to the world.

    Famous life path number 11’s include Doreen Virtue, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Edgar Allan Poe, Hans Christian Anderson, Bill Clinton, Coco Chanel

    This is the number of the “master builder” and people born with life path number 22 are endowed with the skills necessary to create huge progress in the physical world. They’re likely to feel deep within that they have a big purpose in the world, and on the surface – they have the practical sense and diligence to fulfil their vision for reshaping the world. They will know that they’re different to most people, but the master builder quality means that they can balance this huge potential with the realities and restraints of the physical world too. Their lesson in life will be to achieve their huge potential without being overbearing or dictatorial to other people while they implement their strategy for success.

    Famous life path 22’s include Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Paul McCartney, Margaret Thatcher

  • Endings & New Beginnings · Finding Grace Between the Cycles of Life

    When one door closes, another door opens.

    But what if one door hits you square in the face on the way out, and you have nothing else to fall back on?

    This has happened to all of us at some point, I’m sure. There will have been a time where it felt like something has fallen apart without anything there to replace it right away.

    Life will always be our greatest teacher and getting comfortable with the transition of seasons while leaning on faith is what we’re in Earth school to learn sometimes. Things only break to allow something greater to break through, and we need to let go of things so that better things can replace them. When something detaches from us and we feel adrift, it is our job to figure out how it’s really a gift!

    Sometimes we don’t know our next step, and that’s ok. Sometimes we misjudge our next step, and that’s ok too. The most important thing of all is that you remain ok throughout this whole process of learning and growth.

    Being able to set yourself free from expectations will relieve you of worry and doubt. If we aren’t attached to outcomes, then we don’t feel so wounded when they reveal themselves to be illusions or far from our highest good.

    Yesterday, I was moved when reading an announcement by One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson after the sudden passing of sister:

    “Someone recently said something very interesting about how so many people focus on the ‘end game’ without enjoying the doing. I’ve been thinking a lot more about what success means to me. I feel like I’ve been mistranslating it for the last 3 years. Everything I’ve ever known, in my career, is straight down the middle pop. My expectations and aspirations are all shaped around my experiences, as much as I try and stay realistic I couldn’t help but crave a ‘hit’ single. Over the last few weeks, I’ve put a lot of things into perspective and in fact what I should be doing is forgetting about perception and to a certain degree worry less about being defined on commercial success. Turning a page today. Enjoy today and enjoy the ride! Don’t get lost on the way up.”

    Chapters closing open up a new page for fresh thoughts and ideas. If we focus on the old for too long, we lose the creative spark of newness. As humans and animals, our ingenuity means that we can adapt to and survive the seasons of planet Earth – so we’re not as weak as we may feel at times. We are not unable to weather change; it’s just that we don’t like to.

    Finding grace between life’s cycles means to be assured that everything is always working in your highest favour. Yes, it’s certainly true that everything is really working for you rather than against you. There is nothing that you cannot recover from and no hurdle that you cannot jump over when you know that there’ll always be something better for you on the other side. It may take some time – but it will always show itself eventually. 

    Ease of change is tantamount to ease of life because life is a continuous cycle of change. When you know that you are strong, capable, and supported – then you can turn the pages with curiosity and intrigue rather than fear and trepidation. There is always something better for you on the other side of change in the form of new lessons, experiences, and most importantly – growth. 

    You cannot fully expand into a new version of yourself if your life stays the same, so treasure endings as an opportunity for a new you to shine through. There are so many great things waiting for you on the other side of the many golden doors that you’ll encounter when walking through life. You are capable of unlocking them all with grace and ease if you have an open mind and a trusting heart.

    The cyclical nature of life was designed to work in our favour, and as with all things in life, when we can enjoy them for what they are instead of expecting more from them – then we are able to enjoy the beauty in what is, instead of “what we wish it was” but is not. The lows allow for appreciation of the highs, and the past allows us to see what we have in the present. 

    Sometimes we cannot change what happens in our life, but we can always change our reaction to it. We see the world through our own eyes, and therefore, we can switch lenses at any moment.

    Embrace endings and new beginnings as a chance for renewed perspective, and invite in new opportunities with an open heart to receive and embrace them fully.

    Life is always working for you, and everything always happens for your highest good.

  • Numerology: The Secret Meaning of Angel Numbers

    If you are like me, then you see numbers all the time. And not just any old numbers – but numbers that stand out and repeat themselves over and over again…

    How do they appear for you? Is 1111 always following you around, or are you used to seeing 888 before a payment lands in your bank account?

    When I started noticing numbers, it began with 111 or 1111. It stuck out to me on clocks at 11.11am, on oven timers, and the journey time on Google Maps as I was driving. This was around the time that I started Millennial Manifestor and I was pleased for the confirmation.

    Fast forward a few months, and my numbers have changed as my life has changed. As I prepare to move across the country and get married within the next 3 months, my numbers now signal endings and change.

    What do your numbers mean to you? There are different definitions out there which can get confusing, so there’s no replacement for spotting your own trends and sequences and then linking it to what’s going on in your life at the time. After all, your Angels and guides are going to communicate with you in a way that will get your attention by being personally relevant to you.

    If a particular number is following you around and you don’t know what it means yet, look it up below and see if the meaning feels right for you…

    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 06.47.03⋆☽ Angel Number 1 ☾⋆


    Any variation of 1’s such as 11, 11.11 or 1111 is a clear signal that you’re on the right path and the Angels approve of where you’re trying to get to. For now, you can take comfort in the fact that you probably won’t be the recipient of an “Angel clang” any time soon, whereby everything which doesn’t serve you suddenly falls away to make way for a higher path.

    Keep doing what you’re doing and keep your end goal clear in your mind. You are now moving towards it, and you have the support of your helpers on the other side to get you there in perfect Divine timing.


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 07.17.06

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 2 ☾⋆


    The 2’s are a Divine symbol of patience and tell you to trust that everything will work out in the best timing possible. The wait is worthwhile because there are many things moving now which all need to align and slot together to create the perfect outcome for everyone involved.

    The waiting game can be hard, but it’s an important part of the process which requires faith and firm belief in an assured outcome. To learn more about the importance of Divine timing and how it affects you, you can read this article.


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 07.35.05

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 3 ☾⋆


    If you’re seeing the 3’s around you, then it’s a sign that your spiritual support team are with you at this moment. Pay attention to what you’re doing when this number shows up – it’s something that they approve of and are helping you with!

    Some also say that 3 is a symbol of the holy trinity – Father, Son & Holy Spirit – so if you are religious or identify with this paradigm in some way (for example, being raised as a Christian) then again, it will be a sign that you have your spiritual supporters on side.


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 07.40.04

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 4 ☾⋆


    The 4’s are pragmatic and practical, symbolising the physical reality of the tasks which must be done to effect change in your inner and outer worlds. If you are working through administration, repetitive tasks or anything which you’d rather not be doing, then know that you’re taking the right steps to get where you want to go.

    It’s a fact of this human life that sometimes we have to tick things off which don’t ignite our soul, but the combination and completion of these dull tasks will elevate us to new heights in our reality. Seeing the 4’s when you’re busy working through something is a sign to say “keep going and don’t stop – you are nearly at the top!”


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 08.36.35

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 5 ☾⋆


    Change is coming when you see the 5’s in succession. If you’ve been waiting and wishing for a change, then this is a promising confirmation that change is just around the corner! Expect your life to be shaken up in a positive way when you see 5’s over and over again.

    Usually the 5’s will appear when you’re going through a life transformation, like a house move or job change, to confirm that the Angels know what’s going on and are still there to support you at all times.


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 08.42.08

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 6 ☾⋆


    If the 6’s spark fear in you, take comfort in knowing that the Angel Number 6 is just asking you to seek balance across all areas of your life. If your attention is on work right now, focus on the tasks which bring you feelings of fun, freedom and joy. If you’re focusing on your family right now, then give time to your friends and spiritual practice also.

    Rather than needing to be feared, the 6’s are looking out for you to prevent you from weighing too heavily in one part of your life. Stay balanced and your life can flourish in all areas as a result.


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 08.53.52

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 7 ☾⋆


    Lucky 7’s! This is one of my favourite Angel Numbers to receive because it signals that you’re on the right path and, as a result, you will realise success in your current endeavours. There will be obstacles along the way – such is life – but with perseverance, hard work and faith, you will overcome them to emerge victorious with a strong sense of accomplishment.

    Whatever you want is within reach, and by continuing your efforts to do the things which need to be done, you’ll get the results you are hoping for. You have the ability to overcome any challenge and you will experience the rewards of jumping over these hurdles.


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 09.00.54

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 8 ☾⋆


    The 8’s bring up images of slot machines whirring and money shooting out into your hands! You can expect windfalls and financial abundance when recurring 8’s keep showing themselves to you. If you have been hoping and praying for more money in your life, the 8’s are a promising sign that more prosperity is on its way.

    If you add gratitude whenever you see the 8’s and feel thankful for any incoming money – as well as your existing money – then you’ll magnetise even more to you by amplifying its energy. Abundance is sure to be yours when you see this numerology symbol!


    Screenshot 2019-04-17 at 09.09.52

    ⋆☽ Angel Number 9 ☾⋆


    At the end of the Angel Numbers is one to symbolise endings. Something has come full circle, and you’re closing one door to open another. Release the old with gratitude to allow the new to enter and elevate you to a new way of life. Set yourself free from old thought patterns and beliefs, and expand into the greater version of you which is required to achieve greater things.

    If you’re into Tarot, the 9’s symbolise “The World” card to me, which shows the completion of a cycle or life phase. Release and let loose an area of your life which is ready to be traded in for a new and improved version. You are being called to a higher plane, and your physical reality is shifting to allow this change to happen. Embrace the new which is coming and let go of the old!


    Remember…

    You will always receive the messages which are meant for you at the time which is right for you. As I mentioned at the start, these are the meanings which have proven right for me, but if you keep seeing a number at a certain juncture in your life, then you’re getting a clear-cut sign to link these two things together.

    Numbers will carry a personal meaning for you, so don’t ignore any feelings or associations which come up when you spot Angel numbers. They are there for a reason and they are guiding you safely along life’s journey!

  • How 3 Minutes of Meditation Changed My Life

    If you’re seeking more clarity, focus and accomplishment in your life, then set aside just 3 short minutes every day for a regular meditation practice. If you’ve tried my 5AM routine, then finding the time will be easy for you! And if you’re looking for a big return on a small investment with minimal disruption to your current routine, then committing to 3 meditative minutes each day will bring these positive changes into your life…

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-12

    Procrastination happens because we succumb to our mental chatter and indulge in the fear of moving forward, or because we feel confused about what to do next. By switching into meditation mode, you can hold the brain still and keep mental chatter at bay in order to crack on with your to-do list and hear intuitively what your next step is. To get more done often requires thinking less.

    Whatever job you have, I’m sure that it’s fast-paced, demanding and stressful at times. When you’re well-versed in your meditation practice, you can flip into a pared-down sort of meditation mode at any moment in order to stay focused and intentional in your work actions, without getting stressed out and becoming less efficient as a result.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-13

    Our energy follows our mind, so if our thoughts are going haywire then our energy is too. Enter the M word! If our mind is still, it’s easier to align; connect; channel; flourish. By making space in our mind first, meditation gives our energy time to regroup and realign.

    It is blockages – aka dense fear energy – which prevent us from feeling the easy breezy vibe that naturally follows when we align our energy. Once you are neatly aligned, life just flows through you – and you flow through it.

    So, through meditation, you can make your energy work for you. Imagine a beam of safe and secure energy flowing down from the sky, through the top of your head, through your body, and into the centre of the Earth. When you are secure and anchored in this meditative space, then you have the power to be infinitely bold and fearless because nothing can shake you. When you are unshakeable in your connection to your own energy source, then it becomes a lot harder for anyone else to sway you with their own agenda.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-14

    Meditating puts you in the driver’s seat. Instead of starting your day off by being reactive, you’re choosing to be proactive and harnessing your own power before people start demanding things from you. Spending 3 quiet minutes in meditation will ground you and keep you centred so that your energy can remain anchored and serve you in the best way possible.

    When you feel balanced and secure in your own energy, then you’ll naturally feel more assured in yourself and people will start to respond differently. When you’re more balanced and secure through meditation, you will experience fewer people “trying their luck” with unfair demands once they realise that their efforts aren’t worthwhile.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Just 3 minutes of meditation every day is a tiny commitment in terms of time, but the potential benefits are enormous. If you can devote more time to your meditation practice, then you can expect to see these results being multiplied many times over! If you want to make a change and don’t know where to begin – all it takes is 3 short minutes to change your mind, change your life, and change your own corner of the world as a result.
