How to Calculate Your Expression Number
The expression number is calculated by using the numerology-chart. Each letter in our alphabet is assigned a number.
It’s calculated based on our full name.
Many people have 3 official names, and several others have much more. Regardless, you can determine your expression number by first placing each letter of your name under the relevant number.
Then sum up the total of each of your names separately, ensuring you reduce each double-digit to a single-digit number.
Finally, sum up the single digits from each of your names to find your special number.
For example, if the name is John Rayan, the calculations will look like this:
John: 1 + 6 + 8 + 5 = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2
Rayan: 9 + 1 + 7 + 1 + 5 = 23 = 2 + 3 = 5
Next, sum up 2 and 5 to get 7.
The expression number is 7.
If you come across numbers 11, 22, or 33, do not reduce them further, as these are Master Numbers.
Determining your expression number helps you to achieve your ultimate purpose in life by enhancing your understanding of yourself at a deeper level. Your talents, abilities, and shortcomings became much clearer as you became you. Before you were born, your name was determined by your parents, and they intuitively picked your name to match your energy.
