## Numerology calculations - what is it and why should it be of importance?

Most of us are not aware that Pythagoras, the father of mathematics is also the founder of esoteric and creative numerology. He believed that there is an order to the universe and that numbers were more than a means of quantifying things.  His philosophies included the idea that each number had an esoteric meaning.

Esoteric numerology predictions, then, is the art and science of understanding the spiritual significance and orderly progression of all things. Every single word or name vibrates to a number and every number has an inner significance. If properly understood and applied, the letter and number code, brings us into a direct and close relationship with the underlying intelligence and vibration of the cosmos.

Pythagoras taught that numbers operate on the spiritual level. With a few exceptions, everything can be factored into a number from 1 to 9 and each numbers has its esoteric meaning in the numerology calculations. Everything is only an interval in a cycle. The number patterns and geometrical ratios give us the explanation of all natural phenomena, musical harmony and tonal qualities. Pythagoras knew that the planets and stars in our universe were vibrating entities that produced sound, which he called the harmony of the spheres.
