What are your passions, innermost wants, drives, and desires? Do you know in what areas of life your weaknesses and Karmic challenges lie? Thanks to Numerology, these questions can be answered through your name numbers. The method of arriving at these answers can be found by using the “Table of Traits,” or the “Magic Box.”
Each of us have certain inner needs, wants and desires as well as flaws and weaknesses which require further development. But in what areas of life, and in what way?
The purpose of the Table of Traits, or Magic Box, is to determine how many times a particular number or numbers are repeated in your name. The more a particular number is repeated, the more intense is that desire or passion in the area the numbers represent. And the reverse is also true – when a number or numbers are missing in your name, they point to weaknesses or challenges. They indicate your Karma and areas that must be overcome and developed in order to make you a well rounded person.
The table of Traits, or Magic Box, looks like this :
On the left is the Magic Box without the numbers filled in. As you can see, it is constructed like the tic-tac-toe box you played with as a youngster.
