Meaning

Every person has things that they desire, and every person also has dreams and wishes that they would like fulfilled. The desires for each individual may change as they progress through the years, yet when it comes to numerology, each person has one primary desire when it comes to the heart.

It is the Heart’s Desire that is said to govern our purpose and can also help to direct individuals to their true motivations and intentions.

The Heart’s Desire has a direct influence on all that we do. It is also able to give us essential clues when it comes to shapes and themes of each person’s life. When using the ancient Numerology practices, it becomes possible to find out what your own Heart’s Desire Number is, by using letters that appear in the name you were given at birth.

Consonants Vs. Vowels

When working out the Heart’s Desire Number you will only use the vowels in your name. A vowel sound is described as a phonetic tone which complete syllables. Whenever there is a syllable, there will be a vowel. In words such as “cry” or “my”, the Y is functioning in the form of a vowel. What a lot of people are not too sure about is that the letter Y also becomes a vowel when it is making a vowel sound within that syllable. So for example, the Y makes a vowel sound in words such as “very”, “carry”, “marry” and so forth. If you have a name like Yvonne, Gary, Karyn, or, Bryan, you should be counting the letter Y as one of the vowels in your name. It will not be a vowel in the words such as “yawn”, “yank”, or “yes”, as there is already a vowel present and the vowel sound is completing the syllable.

If you do have a Y in your name make sure that it is acting as a vowel when working out your Heart’s Desire Number. If it is not acting as the vowel leave it out, but if it is you need to include it.

How To Calculate Your Heart’s Desire Number

When calculating the Heart’s Desire Number you will use all the vowels that appear in your birth name, which includes your middle name and your surname.

Here we will use the name: Jane Lauren Smith as the example:

The vowels from this name would be: A E A U E I

The numbers that correspond to the vowels are as follows:

A = 1
E = 5
I = 9
O = 6
U = 3
Y = 7

So from the name that was used in the example, the calculation would look like this:

1 + 5 + 1 + 3 + 5 + 9 = 24

When you arrive at a double-digit answer, keep adding the single numbers together until you arrive at a single digit answer. If when adding the vowels from your name you arrive at the number 11 or 22, you will stop there as these have their own unique meanings.

From the example above:

The next step would be to add the 2 + 4 = 6

This would mean that Jane Lauren Smith, has a Heart’s Desire Number 6.
