They say I have a gift for languages but having studied Latin in school, nothing seemed further from the truth.
My Latin teacher, Mr Durkin, in frustration one day in class, threw an eraser at me for not knowing how to conjugate the Latin word for girl. It seemed absurd to me that there were 12 endings to the word puella depending on where you used it in a sentence.
Mr. Durkin, I forgive you for being upset with me but seriously "anger management classes" please...
And so I began to realize I spoke the language of Numbers.
It is a language you know? It is the Universal Language.
A universal language is a hypothetical historical or mythical language said to be spoken and understood by all or most of the world's population; or, in some circles, is said to be understood by all living things, beings, and objects alike.
Every culture understands numbers. The whole world exists because of them and everything revolves around them.
I discovered Numerology as a child. In the summers off from school, my favorite place to be was the public library. I was rather fond of biographies and I guess you could surmise that even at such a young age, I was questioning how a person achieves their destiny. I also was interested in books that would seem quite odd for a child of the 50s such as the biography of Edgar Cayce as well as books on Transcendental Meditation.
I recall my Mother's horror as she discovered me in the lotus position meditating in my room, something that was not in alignment with my Parochial School upbringing. It is a wonder she didn't have my library card revoked. Thankfully she did not.
It was on one of those hot summer days, on a trip to the library, that I discovered my first Numerology Book. I now officially extend my gratitude to Juno Jordan for writing "Romance in Your Name". It was this book, it's very contents, that opened a doorway of understanding on the subject of "destiny" and lit a fire within me to explore the language of numbers. It was not long before I realized I was gifted at this language.
So there you have it Mr Durkin...I may not be able to conjugate the noun puella but I can do a dissertation on the number 1.
You can not do anything really well unless you are passionate about it. I am passionate about Numerology. More importantly, it is my destiny to be a Numerologist.
