According to several different sources, numerology is the belief in numbers predicting our lives and who we are as people as well as providing meaning for the things that occur in our lives. Somewhat similar to astrology, but also completely different. While some believe that it’s a silly superstition, recent events have prompted me to do more research into the subject. I found that my life path number is 5, which characterizes me as a free spirit and a creative thinker. Fun fact: I share a life path number with Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Denzel Washington, Tina Turner, Malcolm X, Steven Spielberg, and my best friend Kaylen. Those with the life path number of 5 are known for being the “spirit of change and adventure” and having the positive qualities of adaptability, creativity, curiosity, good communication skills, love for adventure, progressive thinking. On the other hand, we’re also known for being inconsistent, anxious, rebellious, and impulsive.

Wondering how to calculate your life path number? I got you.

Add all the numbers in your date of birth like this: m+m+d+d+y+y+y+y =
Add each digit from the number you came up with to get a single digit, it should be a number from 1 to 9.
For example, I was born on August 15, 1998, so I found my life path number like this: 0+8+1+5+1+9+9+8=41 then 4+1=5

Now that I’ve informed you of my life path number, you’re probably wondering why I titled this post “The Power of Four.” Well, next I want to talk about angel numbers and my very own personal angel number that I feel like surrounds me in my daily life.

Angel numbers are different from life path numbers in the way that angel numbers literally come from our guardian angels trying to communicate with us. Although I’ve seen each of them from time to time, the one that always sticks with me is 444, usually appearing in the time and every once in a while on a license plate. All angel numbers have specific meanings that are attached to them, for example, 333 means that your angels are with you while 444 means that your angels are supporting you in whatever you may be doing.

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of the number 4 and it honestly didn’t hit me until after I lost my friend Samya and got her favorite number tattooed on my wrist. I’ve been seeing more and more of the number around me and realized that it’s always been surrounding. From being born at 4:47pm to having four siblings from each of my parents to Written by Deni being launched on January 4th (happy birthday WBD!!) to becoming a number 4 in my sorority.

After realizing all of this I couldn’t help but do my research on the meaning of the number 4 itself. First, let me start by saying that 4 is such a powerful number. There are four seasons, four cardinal directions, four main elements, four nuclei in our DNA, and it’s even Beyoncé’s favorite number (not to mention she has an album titled 4 while Jay-Z has an album titled 4:44). The number four literally surrounds us in our daily life and I hadn’t thought about it until recently. The number four has the significance of meaning focus, specifically focusing on your foundation for the future. Four also represents stability and strength.
