Life Number 7: Meaning and Symbols


The seeker

Personal mission: to develop your sense of spirituality, intuition, trust and openness in every aspect of your life

You were born to learn to trust yourself and others. There is a lot of spiritual energy around you, so you need a strong spiritual foundation. You would excel as a philosopher, analyst or researcher because you are always looking for truth and knowledge and love to delve into the mysteries of life.

You tend to devour information and excel when you are able to consolidate meaning from a pile of data and then share your findings with like-minded people.

Do you feel like you’re a little out of place in the world? Many 7 life paths feel like they are old souls exploring the material world here. You are usually on a different wavelength than other people. You are smart, intelligent and intense. You are good with technical problems, with writing and with discovering things.

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

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

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

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

At the end of the day, yours really is a very internal journey where you want to know who you are in the deepest, most authentic and soulful way first and foremost. And this will last a lifetime. Because of the push-and-pull between your belief in hard data and your intuition, it’s important that you periodically take the time to regroup.

In numerology, the 7 is the number of contemplation and being alone. Often those on a 7 life path will spend good parts of their lives alone.

Meditation is necessary. Nature rejuvenates. You flourish and relax when you connect with the environment in a certain way. You need consistent practice to shift your energy as well. Self-care is necessary for a balanced life. You work best in a position where you can spend some time alone.

In healthy, loving relationships, you tend to be honest, loyal, and direct. Yet you often have difficulty supporting or praising your partner. This behavior is based on a fear that your loved ones may realize that you are not “good enough” for them and will leave you. The irony is that when people leave, it’s because they feel undervalued and neglected.

In relation to: You can have a sharp language, so you need to think about your way of communicating and the goals you have for communicating. You tend to get stuck in your head. You analyze everything and every situation too much.

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 need space and privacy and don’t allow others into your personal life unless you invite them.

You may seem distant to others, but you simply observe the world and process it in your own way. If you’re not working with the higher vibration that the 7 Life Path Number brings, then you’re probably exhausting being around as you’ll be focusing on small things and what may seem superficial.

In some ways it’s like visiting the planet because you really don’t feel like you’re from here. If you lack the anchor of solid spiritual beliefs, you are trying to escape the rather mundane routine of everyday life. If you are not on the right track and do not have psycho-spiritual substances, you are attracted to drugs, alcohol, sex, excessive travel or overwork. You have deep gifts to share with the world. Powerful intuition, refinement, science and philosophy are your strengths in your life, optimally focused on study and inner reflection.

We love many well-known 7 Life Paths for their mysterious, vulnerable and complex personas. Given that the Seven Life Path is continuously working on issues of trust and openness, it’s no wonder we’re fascinated by you – you’re so hard to figure out.

Common threads when a 7 life path works with optimal energies are aligned equally with intuition and intellect, wisdom, being at peace with yourself and not being afraid to open up emotionally to others.

Your life purpose is to develop your sense of a higher purpose, trust yourself and others, and trust in the process of your life so that you can feel safe enough to open up and share your inner beauty and wisdom with the world.


Your potential challenges are:

Trust and be open. Confidence starts with confidence, which is not easy for you. You often trust your thinking mind to your inner knowing. You must be open to both forms of knowing. To develop your own approach to life. You tend to trust the views and ideas of others more than your own, so you often try to adapt to their approaches. To evaluate the experts, books, and methods you learn, embrace what works best, and listen to your own instincts instead of taking all the information in front of you. To honor your need for privacy. If you learn to balance your need for private time with your need for social interaction, you will feel more fulfilled. Coming to terms with your feelings about past betrayal and misunderstandings. The pain you feel has been compounded by the fact that you started to trust and set yourself up for being misunderstood or taken advantage of. To overcome your mixed feelings about intimate relationships. You want them, but you don’t. In relationships, you need a partner for companionship to feel a sense of completion, harmony and balance. You can only have a balanced and healthy intimate relationship if you do not seek completion through another. To realize that you will feel most satisfied when you can balance your intuition and your analytical mind. You will be challenged with balancing the two arenas (right brain/left brain). To connect deeply with your path of seeking deeper truths. When you fear the unknown, you experience a sense of fear, confusion or frustration.

Get well soon

You are wise beyond your years. Learning to cultivate and embrace wisdom is the purpose of your life. You learn more effectively through direct experience and experimentation with trial and error than by reading books or being told. You are incredibly intuitive. To find your authentic self, focus on cultivating your intuition, knowledge and acceptance. Because you tend to lack healthy personal boundaries, you usually share everything you think and feel and then feel hurt, betrayed, or misunderstood when people don’t respond well to your sharing. You’re an excellent communicator. Take the opportunity to express yourself directly and openly. If you start to trust yourself and your heart, you have nothing to fear. When you trust your intuition, you are an insightful guide to others. Ultimately, you are meant to be a spiritual teacher to yourself and others in every unique way that this teaching manifests to you. You are intelligent. You have a highly developed mind and so you also need an equally developed physical body. You need physical exercise, meditation and time in nature. Good shopping or you would walk, dance and martial arts. You have high expectations of yourself and others. Keep reviewing your expectations and let others (as much as you) make their journey. This involves the gamble of letting go of your impatience with bad drivers to forgiving someone who has hurt you deeply.
