It’s not that we are presented with a curriculum of specific lessons to be learned. Rather this chart position reflects the types of learning we will assimilate through life experience.
The missing numbers reveal situations and perspectives that it’s prudent to be alert for. The energy of missing numbers create a tendency to approach life in certain ways and, thus, create certain types of experiences.
Life lessons are revealed by applying numerology to your birth name to find out which numbers are missing.
First, determine which numerology numbers are missing from the name. Second, if any are missing, see if they’re present as a major name number. Numbers that are still missing are considered to be missing numbers.
How To Determine Missing Numbers
To determine missing numbers, use the full birth name.
If you prefer to use an online calculator, use the Numerology Missing Numbers tool. Otherwise, here’s how to do it yourself.
Step One —
Write the name on a piece of paper. Then, using the chart below, write the associated number above or below each letter.
Here’s an example using the name Daiy Jane Fictive:
D a i y J a n e F i c t i v e 4 1 9 7 1 1 5 5 6 9 3 2 9 4 5
The number 8 is the only single-digit number that’s missing from the example name.
If there were no missing letter numbers, the calculation would end now. However, with one or more missing letter numbers, do step two.
Step Two —
When the name’s letters have one or more missing numbers, the next step is to determine the major name numbers. If any major name numbers are the same as numbers missing from the letters of the name, then those numbers aren’t considered missing.
Use the Calculating Major Name Numbers tool to determine the major name numbers. The tool also describes the calculations used to arrive at the numbers.
Using the calculator for Daiy Jane Fictive, it’s determined that one of the name numbers is indeed the number 8, the only letter number missing from the name. Therefore, Daiy Jane Fictive has no missing numbers.
If the missing letter number hadn’t been found as any of the major name numbers, then there would be a missing number.
When you do your own name, and if you find there are one or more missing letter numbers even after considering the major name numbers, consult these interpretations.
