Numerology – Keys to Right Livelihood

Ancient Systems of Self-Discovery Throughout history, many cultures have used systems of self-discovery to gain deeper understanding of themselves and their place in the universe. One of the oldest systems, dating back 10,000 years to the Babylonian and Egyptian civilizations, is the science of numbers. Both of these highly advanced civilizations believed that we could understand the substance of everything through its corresponding vibration or number. In other words, they believed that each number represented the outer form of a unique principle or idea expressed in nature. Pythagoras, a 6th century B.C.

Pythagorean Versus Chaldean Numerology – Which is More Accurate?

Man, the Microcosm; Part 4

The Principle Nadis & Kundalini The etheric body, according to Hindu mystics, is said to be composed of 72,000 nadis, or subtle nerves. This figure as the actual number is questionable; it is more likely to be symbolic and should not be taken literally. Sushumna, Ida and Pingala are the major nerves of this vital body.

Ida and Pingala correspond to the two branches of the autonomic nervous system situated along side of the 33 segments of the vertebrae. Ida and Pingala are rooted in the perineum. They rise and flank each side of the sushumna, and they terminate in the openings of …
