While not a lot of people take the time to really understand their birthday, yours could reveal a lot about you. Each month, day, and year holds a different gift and some of us need to work on grasping that.

Everything that happens in this world happens for a reason and the sooner you begin to see that the easier it will be for you to really understand the path before you. If you want to know what gift you have take the time to break your birthday down into a life path number. In order to do this, you need to simplify your birthdate. Mine lines up quite well, does yours?

In order to get your life path number break things down as follows according to Numerology.com:

Say your birthday is October 22, 1980, or 10-22-1980.

Step 1: Reduce the month

From the number 10, you add 1 + 0 and the result is 1.

Step 2: Reduce the date

22 is a Master Number, so we leave it as 22.

Step 3: Reduce the year

1 + 9 + 8 + 0 = 18, which is still double digits and is not a Master Number, so we reduce it further. 1 + 8 = 9.

Step 4: Add the three resulting numbers and reduce them to a single digit or Master Number

1 + 22 + 9 = 32.

3 + 2 = 5. The Life Path for this birth date is 5.

(Your life path number will always be somewhere between 1 and 9.)
