There are things that our heart desires and somewhere inside, we secretly think about those wishes coming true. These desires may change over time, but according to numerology, we all are governed by what we call a ‘heart’s desire number’.

As the name implies, it is basically the dream closest to our heart. Everything that we do in life is strongly influenced by what we desire in life. Using ancient Numerology practices, one can calculate one’s heart’s desire number using the letters of one’s birth name. Here is how to do it:

To calculate your heart’s desire number, take all of the vowels from your full birth name (middle name included).

Here is an example: 

Era Tangar


Note: The letter Y can also be used as a vowel when it sounds like a vowel (Eg. Bryan) or when Y is the only vowel in the syllable (Eg. Betty).

Once you have extracted the vowels, add up the corresponding numbers-

Here is an example using the same name from above-

5 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 8

If you get double digits, add them together until you have single digit (the only time you won’t do this is if the answer is 11, 22 and 33).

11, 22, and 33 are called master numbers because their potential is much more than the other numbers. They are highly charged, difficult to handle, and require time, maturity, and great effort to integrate into one’s personality. 

So, mine is 8 but if you get a double digit number, keep adding up until you get a single-digit number. 

Now that you know your heart’s desire number, scroll down to see what it implies: 

However, there are numbers that are called ‘Master Numbers’ in this method, which should not be added to single-digit. These numbers are 11, 22, 33. Do not add them. Here’s what it means if one of them is your ‘heart’s desire number’.

So, what is your number? Tell your friends and ask them what their number is.
