Having been a student of numerology since 2005, I enjoy it as a dynamic subject. The impact of numbers is great in its depth and width. There is so much to numbers that a student can delve into that learning continues as one observes their works through life. Personally, each number experience births a new learning point for more learning and knowledge.
Prior to that, I was never exposed to the intricacy and mystic of numbers. Numbers were simply part of numeracy. But, if there were any mystic surrounding any of them, the number ‘4’ would certainly spring to mind. Common among the Chinese in Southeast Asia, the number ‘4’ is taboo. The number ‘4’ sounded like ‘death’ in Cantonese which made it inauspicious. Due to this cultural interpretation, many people in this part of the world tend to avoid houses or apartments numbered ‘4’.
How do you calculate your house number?
In numerology, the vibration or energy of house number is calculated as a summation of all digits in the house number or unit number for those living in apartments.
Let’s use a random apartment number for our example: #09-04.
To calculate the house number,
Step 1: simply take add up all the digits in the unit number: 0+9+0+4 = 13,
Step 2: if you get a double digit, add up both digits.: 1+3 = 4
And, we get House 4.
So, according to numerology, is House 4 inauspicious?
Contrary to common perceptions, the number ‘4’ is not about gloom or doom. It has a grounding personality; it builds and secures. This number brings to mind the rewards of firm foundations and a secured future through diligence and effort.
My personal experience with House 4
Having lived in a House ‘4’ in both my first and second houses, my personal experiences with it are those of much hard work, committed long hours and progress. The main theme is, diligence - it does not matter if you are one. If you are one, that’s a complement. If not, well, fret not, you would become one. In a typical House 4, you are likely to see all occupants working hard - parents, children and even domestic helpers working hard. This theme of diligence, or worse, ‘workaholism’ has its occupants working for stability and security. On the whole, I saw a hardworking household which saw all members putting in their best efforts to harness the potential of progress and transformation.
Where do you see 4 in your daily life?
Before furniture design is the hype of late, tables were usually built to have four legs. You see 4 in places which need stability. You find 4 in the four main pillars of a house, 4 as in four wheels of a typical vehicle etc. The number ‘4’ brings to mind firm foundations in construction and design; stable future in House 4 occupants.
In a nutshell, 4 is certainly not what the naysayers have thought it to be. The number ‘4’ does not mean death or is in any way related to death. The number ‘4’ embodies a diligent nature and occupants of House ‘4’ reap the rewards of their effort.
