Numerology Lesson 13 - The Habit Challenge

In the last three Numerology lessons, we discussed several Key Modifiers that influence the Core Elements found in a Numerology chart. This Numerology lesson features a trait we call the "Habit Challenge". Some Numerologists refer to this aspect as the "Point of Security". Both names describe the nature of this aspect quite well. Although it is not exactly a modifier of Core Elements, the Habit Challenge does influence the flow of energy available to them.

Have you ever felt a habit or a repeated pattern that was hard to identify? No matter how aware of the pattern you became, it continued to occur over and over? Your Habit Challenge may shed some light on this subject. The Habit Challenge is just what is sounds like--a habit we feel challenged by which is usually negative. Because all numbers have a polarity as well as a balanced state, the Habit Challenge is usually experienced as an extreme (under-balanced or over-balanced) rather than a balanced vibration. Our challenge is to learn how to balance its influence. This trait then becomes positive and empowering.

Often stress, confusion, and insecurity are energies that create the reactions found in the Habit Challenge. When a person becomes aware of the reactions, they can choose to bring the extremes into a nurturing and balanced state. Like all vibrations that exist within an individual chart, synergy can enhance the individual parts.

Habit Challenge Chart

Determining a Habit Challenge is quite simple. It is the total letters in a name added together. In other words, rather than adding the value of each letter, like in previous lessons, we add the total number of letters together and reduce them to one single digit.

Barbara Ann Kelly
7 letters 3 letters 5 letters

7 + 3 + 5 = 15

1 + 5 = 6 Habit Challenge

Chart Interpretation

In Barbara's case we find a 6 for her Habit Challenge. We can speculate that Barbara may vacillate between the under-balanced and over-balanced aspects of the 6, attempting to balance them. She may become over-attached to her home, family, and environment. So much so that she finds it hard to extend herself beyond her familiar environment. She could also find herself giving advice, living her dreams through others, or perhaps becoming over-responsible. Another trait of an under-balanced 6 could be avoiding responsibility involving others and perhaps failing to keep appointments or obligations. When balanced a 6 Habit Challenge can become a very creative and resourceful asset to have.

For ease, we created possible descriptions for each number. You may want to add to our descriptions. As creative beings, there are many possible Habit Challenge expressions. We listed a few to help you along. Have fun and see what other possible expressions you come up with.

Possible Habit Challenge Responses

During this course we've asked you to use your intuition regarding how a given number would express as under-balanced or over-balanced. We'll now present some specific examples for each number. Although we are presenting these descriptions in relationship to the Habit Challenge, they are not restricted to this subject alone. The following descriptions apply to each of the numbers in context, including the Core Elements. Refer to Numerology Lesson One for the balanced descriptions.

1 Habit Challenge - Leadership:

  • Under-balanced - insecure, dependent, passive

  • Over-balanced - bossy, opinionated, dominating

When acting in an under-balanced way, the 1 may respond in a procrastinating manner, be indecisive, and act in vacillating ways. The 1's natural assertive nature could become over-balanced and result in a response that is bossy, impatient, stubborn, impulsive, and over-attached to ones own beliefs.

2 Habit Challenge - Peacemaking:

  • Under-balanced - indecisive, dependent, uncertain

  • Over-balanced - oversensitive, disapproving, unsupportive

As an under-balanced response, it may be hard to maintain a sense of identity because of a desire to please. The 2 as an over-balanced response may become fussy over little things and caught up in details.

3 Habit Challenge - Expression:

  • Under-balanced - unfocused, vacillating, anxious

  • Over-balanced - exaggerating, gossipy, lacking in concentration

As an under-balanced habit it can exaggerate, become self indulgent, and be without direction. A 3 is creative and expressive so when it becomes an over-balanced response it can lead to scattered energies, starting many tasks, and finding it hard to focus.

4 Habit Challenge - Form:

  • Under-balanced - disorganized, narrow, uncertain

  • Over-balanced - headstrong, limited, antagonistic

A 4, as an under-balanced response can expect a lot of others and fail to commit itself. When over-balanced, it can become too serious and careful, often creating opposition. In addition, it could become so attached to methods that it forgets to see the big picture, getting caught up in details.

5 Habit Challenge - Freedom:

  • Under-balanced - non progressive, cautious, doubtful

  • Over-balanced - erratic, impulsive, careless

The 5 could respond in an under-balanced way by escaping reality through indulgent means. With an over-balance response there could be a possibility of changing directions too often before results are evident. This instability could effect relationships and career.

6 Habit Challenge - Responsibility:

  • Under-balanced - distant, self seeking, unorganized

  • Over-balanced - discontent, overemotional, over-responsible

When the 6 is under-balanced, its response may be to avoid responsibility involving others, perhaps failing to keep appointments or obligations. The 6 Habit Challenge can become very attached to its home, family, and environment. When it becomes over-balanced, it may live through others or possibly desire to give unsolicited advice.

7 Habit Challenge - Individuality:

  • Under-balanced - disregarded, superficial, undeveloped

  • Over-balanced - resentful, hypercritical, secretive

If responding in an under-balanced expression, it can act in over-analytical and critical ways and can even become cut off from its own deep feelings. An over-balanced response can become very detached, shut people out, and hold onto resentments.

8 Habit Challenge - Manifestation:

  • Under-balanced - powerless, impoverished, undisciplined

  • Over-balanced - tactless, pushy, possessive

When under-balanced, material success and motivation may be lacking. When an 8 becomes over-balanced, it may take its effective work characteristics into friendships and home life. In addition, intimidation and manipulation may become a way of attaining results as well as trying to do everything and forgetting to delegate.

9 Habit Challenge - Compassion:

  • Under-balanced - passionless, oppressive, aloof

  • Over-balanced - unaccountable, impractical, dreamer

If expressing in an under-balanced way, it can be somewhat cold or detached, feeling that it is being broad-minded. In addition, it can become a jack of all trades and master of none. The 9 can become moody and filled with ups and downs. Over-balance can be expressed as too dreamy and impractical or too generous for its own good.

A Note On Master Numbers - Both 11/2 and 22/4 can be read as either their master vibration of their digited down vibration. Master vibrations represent a much higher frequency. When a 11/2 or 22/4 cannot hold the higher frequency, they will revert to either a 2 or a 4 respectively. So, also refer to the under-balanced and over-balanced aspects of the 2 and the 4 when analyzing the 11/2 and 22/4.

11/2 Habit Challenge - Illumination:

  • Under-balanced - aimless, fearful of psychic abilities, submissive

  • Over-balanced - extreme nervousness, misguided, obsessed

22/4 Habit Challenge - Master Builder:

  • Under-balanced - lethargic, spiritless, inactive

  • Over-balanced - extreme tension, overwhelmed, controlling

The purpose of pointing out the under-balanced and over-balanced traits that may occur from a Habit Challenge, is to help identify possible patterns. Once identified, an individual can become conscious and work towards balancing the negative traits into a positive and creative response rather than a reactive one. We have found that once the Habit Challenge is embraced, it can them be balanced and brought into an energy which can be an impetus for success.

When working with the Habit Challenge, also pay attention to the other Core Element numbers. The Habit Challenge may be easier to balance if it has harmonious energies to help it along. If other Core Elements are Discordant, the Habit Challenge may be a little more difficult to direct into a positive and balanced resource.
