The numbers that surround you in life such as those in your date of birth, your physical address, your bank account and the like all carry a special meaning which is an influence on the things that you do, the way you think, your abilities, your personality and your desires. Having a basic understanding of the meaning of numbers can help you in your walk in life in the way of making better choices and taking advantage of the positive influences of your numbers. Reduce the numbers to a single digit and check out their basic meaning.
This same concept goes for words. Words that are important to you like those in your name, your address, your company, etc. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by a number value. The numbers 1 through 9 are a pattern that is used to set values. Depending on where the letter falls within the alphabet, the number value is set. Each letter then carries its own number value and its own number meaning. The combination of numbers from the letters in a word are reduced down to a single digit to find the basic meaning.
For instance, if you look at the word 'love' the number values of each letter will be L with the value of 3, O with the value of 6, V with the value of 4 and E with the value of 5. Put them together and you get the number 3645. Now add each number of the word together and reduce down to a single digit to find its simplest meaning. Adding 3645 gives you 18 and 18 reduced to a single digit is the number 9. The word 'love' now has a numeric value of 9.
