Some Precautionary Thoughts by Michael McClainThe longer I study and think about numerology, the more disenchanted I get with the concept of "Master Numbers." My first concerns arose when the traditional 11 and 22 master number were enjoined by 33/6, 44/8, 55/1, and 66/3. All of these latter day master numbers seemed to be wanting their shot at greatness, too. For years I maintained a staunch conservative resistance to this change, and stuck with the original masters and excluded the new pretenders. Over the years, this has upset a few 33/6s along the way. But I steadfastly sent them on their way to find others who would feed their vanity and good fortune (in an ego sense) of being born on one of those rare dates producing a total of 33.
On reflection, it's hard to justify why, if the 11 can syphon off all of the potential superlatives of the spiritual 2, and 22 can steal the glory from the hardworking 4, then why can't the 33s do the same to the naturally nurturing 6. Seems only fair. But with most of the optimal trails of 2 and 4 expended on their "higher level" brethren, these two solid citizens are left with delineations reflecting personages resigned to the ordinary and humdrum. To me it is very hard to read what numerologists say about 1 through 9, without coming away with the sense that the authors believe that the higher the number the more potential for the person. The 2 and 4 are usually particularly drab, indeed. I just have a hard time accepting this. I hold firmly to the idea that all numbers are totally and without qualification equal in terms of human potential. It is simply that, that potential manifests, thankfully, in a wide array of different kinds of people.
Master Numbers can be a Problem
Further on this, I have the sense that upon learning one is a "master", the reaction can go a couple of different ways. Neither are very desirable in my view.
In some, the discovery that your Life Path number or Destiny number is one of the master numbers can be a little freaky and intimidating. Not knowing what you are supposed to do with this wonderful "gift" can cause confusion and even paranoia. Not very healthy when a reading of the root number would give a much more accurate picture for both the 2 and the 4. With the potential for greatness included in the more comprehensive reads, it is far better to see the nature of your being and what the potentials are likely to be. As a member of this crowd with my 11/2 Destiny number, I'm feeling better already knowing that I no longer have to be so illuminating.
Beware of the Master Number EgoThe other group of masters proudly hail their superlative status. They adopt the view that they are somehow better than all of their single digit peers. Stands to reason, doesn't it? Their number is a master number and not just everyone is a has such a designation. This sort of ego trip flies in the face of master number concept. Surely these folks are living on the negative side of their master number. They are sitting around just waiting for that greatness to appear. They would be well advised to revisit the root number and learn the lessons there with a sense of humility.
So, I have limited the amount of information on the site regarding master numbers, and I have incorporated the superlatives into the root single digit number instead.
If your date of birth or the letters in your names adds up to one of the master numbers, 11 or 22, or 33 for that matter, I urge you contain your pride and excitement. Be humble and focus on the ultimate single digit number. Make sure you understand the basis of your nature and that you are indeed living your life on its positive side.
