“You’re good enough as you are right here and now.”

I had a numerology reading with Michelle recently and found it really interesting, she had a lot to share. She spoke about my life path, my destiny, personality, and the lessons I’m here to learn about in life.

The Destiny Number is based on our full birth name. Each letter of the alphabet has a number that it corresponds to, and the final digits are added together to total one number. She explained that I’m a “7 Destiny Number” who is here to find “My Spiritual Truth” which personally, from my own experiences, feels right to me independent of family or other people’s beliefs. It also related to me walking a path less travelled and of being drawn to holistic ways of living.

My “6 Life Path Number” reflected my love of connection with people and of wanting to help and nurture them. This was calculated by adding together all of the numbers of my birth date, including my birth year.

Number 3 “The Self Expressive Creative” was revealed as my Personality Number and this really lights up my soul. Michelle affirmed how important it is to “have fun” and to express myself “creatively” because it raises my vibration and puts me in synchronicity with life. She said this is important for all of us because when we’re in a “high vibration” we are more easily able to attract the things we want into our lives.

Michelle Buchanan's words of wisdomNumber 5 – the “Freedom Loving Adventurer’’ was also part of my numerology blueprint. It is calculated from the 14th day of the month which I was born on (because 1+4=5), and that was accurate also. I’ve had many enjoyable adventures over the last ten summers, to wellbeing and creativity festivals and nice nature spaces. This matches my reading, as 5 relates to adventures, 3 to creativity, and 7 to wellbeing and nature. Michelle reminded me that it’s important that I continue to do more of this throughout my life.

Michelle also spoke about “Personal Year Numbers” and how there are 9 of them, all with different forecasts of what we can be likely to experience in that year. I’m in a “1 Personal Year” which is all about new beginnings, a fresh start, and taking action. I confirmed that I have been experiencing many significant new things this year that are aligned with my passions and dreams.

The session concluded with oracle cards being drawn that were meaningful and encouraging. I also appreciated Michelle’s intuitive messages throughout the reading. It was a very in depth, interesting, helpful and uplifting reading.

Q&A with Michelle

What services do you offer?

I offer Intuitive Numerology Readings, Oracle Card Readings, Spiritual Counselling, Couple Counselling and Law of Attraction Manifestation Life Coaching. I also run workshops teaching others how to learn these skills, because the more people in the community with this wisdom, the better off we all are. In 2023, I’m starting “Circle of Light” – a free fortnightly Papamoa based “spiritual support group” for those of like mind in need of love, light and wisdom to feed their soul.

Why is this work so important to you?

Since we’re creative beings who need to maintain a “high vibration” to create a happy, healthy life – my work is important because it helps people to raise their vibration through self-awareness and an understanding of their life’s journey through their “numbers”. When our Numerology Blueprint is calculated from our birth certificate name and date of birth it reveals our life purpose and what we’re destined to do in this life. But more importantly, it uncovers the life lessons and challenges we will experience in this life. When we understand what these are and how to overcome them, we become proactive and self-empowered as opposed to helpless, powerless victims. This is vital information to know if you want to be happy and make the most of your life.

Could you tell us about how your interest in holistic healing began?

My mother was into astrology and used to visit mediums when I was a child. She also had Louise Hay’s book, “You Can Heal Your Life”, so I was introduced to holistic healing at an early age, however I didn’t take it seriously until I had a Numerology Reading 32 years ago that turned my life around during a very difficult time. Because that reading had such a positive impact on my life, I wanted to be able to do the same for others – and so my passion for healing through Numerology began.

Michelle Buchanan, January 2023What obstacles did you face to get to where you are now and how did you overcome them?

Self doubt was my biggest obstacle of all. Because I’d never heard of somebody making numerology a full time career, I didn’t think there would be a demand for it. I assumed people would only want psychic and mediumship readings and nobody would want to get their “numbers” done because it wasn’t as “glamorous” as the psychic arts. Boy was I wrong! As soon as I shut down the negative voice in my head and focused only on my passion for Numerology and the love I felt in my heart when a client had a major breakthrough in a reading, that’s when the magic started to happen. Once I focused only on love and being of service, within months I had a regular client base, a column in “Woman’s Day” magazine and a monthly segment on TV One’s “Good Morning” for the next three years.

Who should seek your service here as a holistic wellness technique?

My clients are people who wish to become more self-aware and who know they were born to experience certain life lessons, but don’t know what they are or how to overcome them. Some wish to know their life purpose and what they are destined to be and do in this life and how they can achieve that. Many are seekers who know life isn’t random and who need extra insight into a specific situation or who need help with making a decision. Others are simply curious about themselves and their life’s journey or are looking for a deeper understanding of a significant other such as a partner or child.

Could you share a wellbeing tip with the community?

Absolutely! Because we’re creative beings that attract people, situations and things based upon what we feel and think about “the most” – we need to focus mostly upon what we “want” rather than what we “don’t want” – because we’ll attract it into our lives. When we train ourselves to only give attention to what is “good”, “positive” and “right” in our life, rather than what is “bad”, “negative” or “wrong”, we raise our energy vibration which improves our health and wellbeing and increases the positive synchronicity in our day to day life. Having an attitude of gratitude is vital.

If you could tell your younger self one thing what would it be?

Don’t be so unkind to yourself. You’re not the sum of your past mistakes and failures. You’re a good person and you’re “good enough” as you are “right here and now” – so treat yourself like a friend.
