The Numbers and Their Meanings
Written by: An Enchanted Spirit ~ Nancy

      Everyone has their own interpretations of what the numbers in Numerology really mean. You can find hundreds of pages, if not thousands, of them on the internet. However, in most cases, they are repeated. The same texts copied from page to page, article to article, without any real thought into the meanings they carry.  

      Below you will find another view on the numbers. Some information is the same, and some may be a tad different. They are meant to enrich your knowledge of the numbers and help you see them with fresh eyes.
