It is always interesting to note how characters in the physical world are influenced by energies of the spiritual.
In the study of numerology, we get to observe how numbers that are related to our personalities – such as our life path number, expression number, or heart desire number – and what these symbolize, often reflect our characters, explain our patterns of thinking and behavior, why we are inclined towards certain things, and why certain values, advocacies or vocations attract us.

Calculating your Life Path Number
In deriving our life path numbers, we use our birthdays in order to get to a root number. Let’s see how this can be derived.
For example, if your birthday is on July 31, 1988, your life path number can be derived as follows:
The month, July, is the 7th month, so that will equal the number 7. The day, 31, will be 3 + 1 = 4. Then year, 1988, will be 1 + 9 + 8 + 8 = 26; which will then be 2 + 6 = 8
Add the 3 numbers – 7 + 4 + 8 = 19; which will then be 1 + 9 = 10; which in turn will be 1 + 0 = 1. So, if your birthday is July 31, 1988, your life path number will be 1.
In numerology, there are special two digit numbers, which when derived, need not be reduced further into their single digit equivalents. These are the numbers 11, 22, and 33, and they are called master numbers.
They carry with them special power and extra meaning – these double digits are not that commonly derived, and understandably, people who get to them have unique qualities that the single digits may not carry.
However, there is also some osmosis in the character traits of their single digit counterparts as well as the digit that is repeated in them.
Master Number 33
Master Number 33 is probably the most noteworthy of all the master numbers – probably because it tends to balance out the two other master numbers.
It is also the combination of the first two master numbers – 11 + 22 = 33! Apart from sharing some qualities of master number 11 and 22, it also has the qualities of the number 3, as well as the number 6 (because when you add the two digits 3 + 3, it will also equal 6).
Master Number 33 is known as the Master Teacher. Coincidentally, character traits of those who have this as their life path number are prominently very selfless and generous of themselves, willing to help others on a grand scale.
They are often those who throw themselves into humanitarian efforts, promoting love and harmony in circles that are way outside of their own lives.
They are highly helpful, sometimes to a fault. This is something they should learn to balance with making sure that they are taking care of themselves as well.
They are keen towards healing and nurturing others. The highly compassionate people that they are, they tend to empathize well with the sufferings of others and desire greatly to uplift them in ways that are self-sacrificing, sometimes even saintly.
They have high connection to the spiritual aspects of life. This is something they must attempt to be well-versed with, if they are not already.
They tend to emanate positive vibrations to those around them. However, they may also be highly emotional – this may be signs that there is more to be improved upon. Mastery of this is very possible for them.
Those with Master Number 33 in their life path are also known to be great communicators. This is another trait that strengthens them being named the Master Teacher.
They are the type who will allow others their time and space to express themselves, and won’t feel the need to argue to be right.
It is in their nature to make sure that what they offer up in conversation is true – they won’t simply say things for the sake of saying them.

Those that carry the life path number 6 have the values of harmony and family deeply etched in them. This number is usually called “the nurturer” or “the motherhood number”.
