Life Path Numbers and Their Meanings
Your life path number is determined by adding together the numbers in your birthday. For example, if your birthday is 01/01/2001 (Jan 1, 2001), then your life number is five (1+1+2+1 = 5).
If you end up with a two digit number, add those together to find your life path number, unless the number is 11, 22, or 33. These numbers are master numbers that hold a stronger vibration in the universe.
First, let’s take a look at each of the nine life path numbers and see what they mean for you.

Number 22: 22s are master builders that have a great spiritual intuition that allows them to apply the knowledge that you gain in life to practical concepts that will help you grow into a successful member of society.
