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
7 + 3 + 5 = 15
1 + 5 = 6 Habit Challenge
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:
- insecure, dependent, passive
- 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:
- indecisive, dependent, uncertain
- 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:
- unfocused, vacillating, anxious
- 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,
- 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,
- 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,
- Over-balanced - discontent, overemotional,
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:
- disregarded, superficial, undeveloped
- 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,
- 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
9 Habit Challenge - Compassion:
- Under-balanced - passionless, oppressive,
- Over-balanced - unaccountable, impractical,
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:
- aimless, fearful of psychic abilities, submissive
- extreme nervousness, misguided, obsessed
22/4 Habit Challenge - Master Builder:
- lethargic, spiritless, inactive
- 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
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
