To answer your earlier question, yes we do believe that in the hands of a competent and ethical numerologist that patterns and combinations numbers can be used as a tool of divination, to help a person gain a greater knowledge and understanding of self.
|My name is a bad vibration 18.....Numerologist told me I should fix it immediately...
While I am fully aware that certain numerology sites on the internet claim to be able to fix a bad vibration names using such dubious tools as the Lecher Antenna (often for a hefty fee), I remain highly cynical both about the truth of their claims, as well as about their true motives for providing this service.
It seems to me to often be more about making lots of money and feeding the so called "expert's" ego, instead of actually helping the individual to develop and grow spiritually with what they have been given.
To do this is NOT ethical!
