How To Find Your Numbers
This is how to find your numbers I will use my name as an example. To find your numbers you will need to use your own name and date of birth.

Character Number: To find your character number you need to use your full birth name, mine is MARK ANDREW ROBOTHAM, so I need to find out which letter corresponds to which number by using the key chart above.

M=4 A=1 R=9 K=2
A=1 N=5 D=4 R=9 E=5 W=5
R=9 O=6 B=2 O=6 T=2 H=8 A=1 M=4

Next when you have found your numbers you need to add them together...
4+1+9+2+1+5+4+9+5+5+9+6+2+6+2+8+1+4=83

Then you take the total, in my case 83 add the 8 to the 3 which gives you 11 If you have a long name you may find that you will get double numbers all you do is keep adding the double numbers until you get a single number, In my case 11 so I  add 1+1=2 so my character number is 2
Personal Number: To find your personal number you need to use your first and last name, the same principle applies to the above method.

M=4 A=1 R=9 K=2
R=9 O=6 B=2 O=6 T=2 H=8 A=1 M=4

Next you need to take all the number and add them together
4+1+9+2+9+6+2+6+2+8+1+4=54

Then as above you add 5+4=9 So my personal number is 9 if you keep getting double numbers keep adding them together until you get a single number.
Birth Date Number: To find your birth date number you need to use your date of birth, the same principle applies to the above method. My date of birth is 10th August 1972 so I would do this 1+0+8+1+9+7+2=28

As before with double numbers keep adding them until you get a single number. In my case 2+8=10 and then 1+0=1 so my birth date number is 1.

I know it looks complicated, but
it's quite easy when you get the hang of it. The method above is the most common and easiest to use. Some people who read with numerology may vary in the methods they use. The important thing is if you learn a certain way then stick with it.
