HEART'S DESIRE NUMBER
WHAT IS THE HEART'S DESIRE NUMBER?
The heart’s desire number is one of three base numbers every individual should know about themselves. In addition to the life path number and personality number, the heart’s desire number also shows what is in the depths of an individual and, in a way, what makes them tick.
The heart’s desire number shows the inner most passion or essence of a person; their movitivation, what they seek out of life. Often times the literal heart’s desire is not shared with others, as many people keep their muses and passions private. The heart’s desire is truly a look into you want from life.
HOW TO FIND THE HEART'S DESIRE NUMBER?
Your Heart’s Desire number is calculated by adding all of the vowels in your full birth name.
The vowels in the English language are:
A, E, I, O, and U
Many of you may have learned “and sometimes Y” as a child.
That’s accurate here too, but let’s make sure we know when and why (no pun intended) the letter ‘Y’ is a vowel.
'Y' ACTING AS A VOWEL
Typically, at least for the majority of names, ‘Y’ is used as a vowel. A vowel is a letter that provides the life of a word. What does that mean? Vowels give words vibration and sound from your vocal cords. Consonants, on the other hand, articulate pronunciations and don’t have the same breath of life as vowels.
Here is an example of the letter ‘Y’ used as a vowel:
Notice that the ‘Y’ is between the L and the two Ns. Without the ‘Y’ acting as a vowel, we would have “Lnn”, which just doesn’t look right, nor is it able to be pronounced properly without the ‘Y’.
Other names that utilize ‘Y’ as a vowel would be:
Amy, Billy, Cathy, Danny, Gary, Jaclyn, Kyler, Allyson, Ryan, Sylvia, Tyler, etc.
Notice that the ‘Y’ always provides a vowel sound (usually emulating an ‘E’ or ‘I’) as opposed to a consonant sound.
The proper cipher to use to find your Heart’s Desire number in these cases is listed below:
WITH 'Y' AS VOWEL
With ‘Y’ as a vowel, here are some calculations:
A + M + Y
1 + 0 + 7 = 8
L + Y + N + N
0 + 7 + 0 + 0 = 7
Amy (8) Lynn (7) would then sum to 15, which by the Pythagorean reduction method we would then reduce 15 to 6 (1 + 5 = 6). Continue the calculations with your full birth name to find your true Heart’s Desire Number.
'Y' ACTING AS A CONSONANT
With ‘Y’ as a consonant, let’s run a calculation to find the Heart’s Desire number of a full name:
G + A + Y + L + E
0 + 1 + 0 + 0 + 5 = 6
M + A + Y
0 + 1 + 0 = 1
Y + O + D + E + R
0 + 6 + 0 + 5 + 0 = 11
Gayle (6) May (1) Yoder (11) sums to 18, which reduces to 9. Gayle’s Heart’s Desire number is 9.
Feel free to test out the Heart’s Desire calculator when you’re ready! Just make sure to select the proper ‘Y’ options for your name(s)!
FUTHERMORE AS A CONSONANT
The letter ‘Y’ as a consonant provides a much different sound, such as in “yellow”.
Consonants have a definitive start and finish to their sound. The ‘Y’ in yellow provides the first sound not of the vocal cord. The first vowel/vocal sound is provided by the E following the ‘Y’, thus ‘Y’ would be treated as a consonant in this example.
Some names that have a ‘Y’ as a consonant would be:
Yolanda, Yon, Yeltsin, Yohan, York, Yates, Yoder, Yount, etc.
Usually ‘Y’ is found at the beginning of a word if it is used as a consonant, but just like everything else in the English language, let’s make this even more fun (difficult!).
When ‘Y’ immediately follows a vowel sound, it is also taking the role of a consonant in those scenarios. Let’s cut to the chase and show some examples:
Arroyo, Davey, Ray, Gayle, Lindsey, May, Mickey, Murphey, Morrisey, etc.
Regardless, anytime time ‘Y’ is used as consonant, the cipher to use is listed below:
WITH 'Y' AS CONSONANT
AND OF COURSE, THE OUTLIERS!
English would not be complete without the words and names that use ‘Y’ as both a vowel and a consonant. Here we go:
Sydney, Yancy, Yovanny, Yordy, etc
In these cases, a manual calculation would be best. Example below:
S + Y + D + N + E + Y
0 + 7 + 0 + 0 + 5 + 0
The first ‘Y’ in “Sydney” makes the soft I sound, therefore it acts as a vowel, count it. The ‘Y’ at the end of “Sydney” follows the E sound make by the E, therefore ‘Y’ acts as a consonant, don’t count it.
If needed, run your first name, middle name, and last name separately in the Heart’s Desire calculator and add the totals for a grand sum. If the sum is not 11, 22, or 33, reduce the number to a single digit and you’ll have your Heart’s Desire number.
If you end up with 11, 22, 33 after adding your full name, do not reduce! You have a master number for your Heart’s Desire. Consider yourself blessed… or cursed… it’s up you to!
