Life Path Number 7

The Analyst and (Sometimes Reluctant) Spiritualist!

Life Path Number 7

The 7 Life Path is the searcher and the seeker of the truth. You have a clear and compelling sense of yourself as a spiritual being. As a result, your goal is devoted to investigations into the unknown, and to find the answers to the mysteries of life. You would excel as a philosopher, analyst, or researcher because you’re always seeking truth and knowledge, and love delving into life’s mysteries.

You tend to devour information and excel when you’re able to consolidate meaning out of a stack of data and then share your findings with like-minded people. It’s as though you’re a character in the TV show The Big Bang Theory — a little geeky in your own charming way.

Do you feel as though you’re a little out of place in the world? Many 7 Life Paths feel as though they’re old souls who are here exploring the material world. You’re most often on a different wavelength than other people. You’re bright, intelligent, and intense. You’re good with technical problems, at writing, and in discovering things.

Do you feel intuitive? You have a natural intuitive ability that is in some ways at odds with your highly analytic mind. This can be a point of confusion for you. On one hand, you’re all about data, knowledge, and research, and you need accepted systems of thought to operate in your chosen realm.

On the other hand, you’re constantly receiving intuitive data that you can’t qualify or quantify and it may scare you. Either you block and suppress your intuition—which could lead to dissatisfaction and ill health—or you learn to respect and balance both aspects of your highly calibrated mind.

Perhaps you experience the opposite: You fully embrace your psychic awareness and refuse to use your grounded, analytical abilities.

Either way, inviting both aspects of your cognition (analysis and intuition) to co-exist and co-create can have a profoundly positive impact on your life.

Really, at the end of the day, yours is a highly internal journey where you’re primarily purpose is to get to know who you are in the deepest, most authentic and soulful way. And this will take a lifetime. Because of the push-and-pull between your belief in hard data and your intuition, it’s important for you to take time alone periodically to regroup.

In Numerology, the 7 is the number of contemplation and of being alone. Often those on a 7 Life Path prefer to spend good portions of their lives on their own. You enjoy your solitude, preferring to work alone. You need time to contemplate your ideas without intrusion from others. You are a lone wolf, a person who lives by your own ideas and beliefs. As a result, close associations are difficult to form and to keep, especially marriage.

However when your life is balanced, you are both charming and attractive. You can be life of a party, and you enjoy performing before an audience. You enjoy displaying your wit and knowledge, which makes you attractive to others, especially the opposite sex. While you are generous in social situations, you are keenly aware of the need to come off the stage, and return to your solitude. Hence, intimacy is difficult for you.

All this privacy and solitude can cause isolation and loneliness. If isolation is brought to the extreme, you can become cynical and suspicious. You can develop hidden, selfish motives, which people may sense, and this may cause them to be uncomfortable around you. You must guard against becoming too withdrawn and too independent, thus shutting out the love of others. You must especially watch out for selfishness and egocentricity; thinking of your self as the center of the Universe, the only person that matters.

Your challenge in life is to maintain your independence without feeling isolated or ineffectual. You must hold fast to your unique view of the world, while @ the same time being open to others, and to the knowledge they have to offer.

Meditation is imperative. Nature is rejuvenating. You flourish and relax when you connect with the environment in some way. You need consistent exercise to move your energy around as well. Self-care is necessary for you to have a balanced life.

You’re learning how to connect emotionally, both to yourself and to other people. You can have a sharp tongue, so you need to think about your style of communication and the goals you have for communicating. You tend to get stuck in your head. You’ll over-analyze everything and every situation.

You’re also not always the best at understanding people’s wants and needs. You have an air of secrecy about you and enjoy a sense of mystery. You’re often a classic introvert.

You may appear aloof to others, yet you are simply observing the world and processing it in your own way. If you don’t operate with the higher-level vibration the 7 Life Path Number brings with it, then you’re probably exhausting to be around because you will focus on petty things and can appear to be somewhat shallow.

In some ways, it’s as if you’re visiting the planet because you really don’t feel as though you’re from here. If you lack the anchor of solid spiritual beliefs, you’ll attempt to escape the rather mundane routine of daily life. When you’re off track and lack psycho-spiritual resources, you’re drawn to drugs, alcohol, sex, excessive travel, or overwork.

Powerful intuition, refinement, science, and philosophy are your strengths in a lifetime optimally devoted to study and inner reflection.

The person with a 7 Life Path number finds success and satisfaction in business, science, religion, insurance, invention, the occult, and anything related to research.

Common threads when a 7 Life Path is working with optimal energies are being attuned equally to intuition and intellect, wisdom, being at peace with yourself, and not being afraid of opening up emotionally to others.
