Excerpt from Chapter 1: Introduction to Numerology

We come to love, not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
—Sam Keen

When I wrote my previous book Glynis Has Your Number, I had so many topics to cover that I only put one chapter about love in the book. I vowed that my next book would be dedicated to love, because I believe there is nothing more important to our well-being.

I have been practicing Numerology for over twenty-one years, and one of my greatest pleasures is to bring two people together and help them find lasting love by the Numbers. It is a blessing when we share our lives with kindness and consideration to help each other achieve our dreams. I find equal satisfaction in counseling married couples whose marriages have lost their way. Numerology has helped them to understand each other, begin to work through their differences, and fall in love all over again.

It isn't as much fun if you have a great career and achieve success but have no one with whom you can share your triumphs. I strongly believe that God did not put us on a planet with millions of people and yet doomed us to live our lives alone. It only makes sense that He would want us to be able to share our lives with the right someone else. If you are dating and looking for a lasting love, I can help you find a loving partner through the power of Numerology. If you are already in a relationship and know that it is not a healthy one, help is on the way!

How It Works
Numerology, a 2,500-year-old science of numbers, was created by the Greek mathematician Pythagoras. Pythagoras believed that when we are born, we enter this world with very specific Vibrations. These Vibrations have a direct influence on our character and what our life purpose will be. Pythagoras attached a Number to each Vibration, using the Numbers 1 (new beginnings) through 9 (completion). If you have a person's first and last name, and full date of birth, you can discover exactly who they are by using the Pythagorean Number System.

There are three Numbers that come from the name (the Soul Number, the Personality Number, and the Power Name Number), and there are three Numbers that come from the full birth date (the Birth Day Number, the Life Path Number, and the Attitude Number).

Below are the brief definitions of what each number tells you about a person.

The Soul Number: Defines what will fulfill your Soul.
The Personality Number: Defines how people perceive you.
The Power Name Number: Defines the strength of your character.
The Birth Day Number: Defines how you appear to people when they first meet you.
The Life Path Number: Defines your life's purpose. This Number has the biggest impact on your Life.
The Attitude Number: Defines your general outlook on life.

Here is an example of what the six numbers above look like when they are laid out:

93345*/7Attitude

When you do a Numerology Blueprint, the layout of the numbers will always be in this exact order, going from left to right. The first number will be the Soul Number (9), the second number will be the Personality Number (3), the third number will be the Power Name Number (3), the fourth number will be the Birth Day Number (4), the fifth Number will be the Life Path Number (5), and the sixth number will be the Attitude Number (7). I will always put an asterisk (*) next to the Life Path Number, because it is the most important Number when it comes to love relationships. However, if your Life Path Numbers are a Challenge, all is not lost because I do give you advice on how to deal with this in Chapter 14.

When you have determined the six numbers for you and your partner, you will have the information you need to create a Personal Numerology Chart Comparison and see whether this relationship is worth pursuing or ending so you can move on. This book will help you answer this question with confidence. If you are in an unhappy marriage, and your relationship is mostly Toxic but you want to save it, perhaps because you have children or just do not believe in divorce, there is information throughout this book that will give you the tools to heal your relationship.

When you do a Personal Numerology Chart Comparison, there are three ways that each number interacts with another number:

A Natural Match Number means you have an instant rapport and an easygoing understanding of each other.
A Compatible Number means you get along most of the time and can learn to agree to disagree.
A Challenge Number means that no matter what you say, you will be misunderstood. More often than not you will find a break down in communication, which can feel very Toxic and make the relationship difficult.

I will discuss each of these further in Chapter 3.

As time goes on, there are couples who believe they have outgrown each other, and others who say they grew much closer in later years. I believe this actually has to do with the Maturity Number (what you achieve in midlife) and the Destiny Number (where you are headed), which are two Vibrations that reveal themselves later in life. Although
these two Numbers are not one of the six Numbers used in your Numerology Blueprint, they do also help you understand each other better. By learning what they are and mean, you can prepare for them with your mate; or if you are dating and find they are Toxic, you may want to reconsider the relationship.

By studying your Numerology Blueprints with your partner, you can learn a whole new way to communicate, so that your partner will actually hear what you are saying—perhaps for the first time.

I have heard Glynis several times on Coast to Coast AM and have always thought she was intelligent and wise, so I was eager to read her newest book, "Love by the Numbers." I'm very glad that I did, because I learned a lot about myself and I also received confirmation about a relationship I had in the past.

I did a full chart for me and a particular ex of mine. Our numbers were fantastic, both for our "goes by" names and our birth certificate names. We had a real soul mate connection via our birth names, and even our Destiny and Maturity numbers were natural matches. Is it any wonder then that I had the feeling from our first date that he was a person I could love for the rest of my life?

But Glynis warns repeatedly in her book that addiction, mental illness and a person living the negative side of their numbers can massively skew your experience of the vibration that attracted you to a person at the start. I absolutely experienced this. Depression, alcoholism, drug use and suicide raged through his family for generations and had already started to get a grasp on him. Unfortunately, I was already in love with him by the time I realized this information. I was also young, and very inexperienced, and didn't see a lot of red flags early. To cap it off, I am a Lifepath of 3 and we tend to try to "fix" and "rescue" people until we learn that you can't. It simply does not work.

The breakup was long and painful. I had a lot of self-judgment for years because I simply could not understand how on earth I could have let someone treat me SO badly and still love them. It made no sense to me at all. I finally had to learn to accept and forgive myself for staying in spite of lies, persistent toxic criticism, cheating and being shut out.

I believe "Glynis Has Your Number" is a better book about numerology. In this other book she explains in more detail about numerology. I understand that the "Love by the Numbers" would be more popular because everyone is looking for a fast fix to hook up romantically with someone else. However, if you really want to understand numerology, the "has your number" book is, in my opinion, better. In general I equate Glynis McCants with the (1960s/70s) author, Linda Goodman's "Sun Signs" about astrology. I found some interesting parallels between McCants' explanations of numerology and Goodman's explanation of astrology. It is all entertaining and I found some fundamental truth in both.

I have read all 25 chapters of Glynis McCants's "Love By The Numbers" and i must say that her book is an amazing compilation of work. It is an easy read for anyone to understand and Glynis explains all of the numerological concepts in simplified terminology. This stuff is scary accurate. You will get excited and this crazy world we live in will begin to make sense to you. You'll begin to realize and understand peoples behaviors and why they do what they do and say what they say. I've read dozens of numerology books by many different authors and in reflection i would recommend Glynis' McCants books time and again as the leading author in teaching numerology to anyone that is interested in this emerging field. I'm President/CEO of a small business i started in NorthEast,Ohio and i've used Glynis's teachings in my own business and personal life and have been very successful. Thank you Glynis and keep them coming! Deshay S McClinchy

I LIKE THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT GIVES ME AN ADDITIONAL TOOL TO HELP ME IN THE SELECTION OF PEOPLE I ALLOW IN MY LIFE. THEY SAY KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, AND THIS WILL HELP ME TO HAVE AN ADDITIONAL TOOL TO SUPPORT THAT LITTLE VOICE THAT KEEPS TELLING ME "NOT THE ONE", WHICH AT TIMES I IGNORE TO MY DETRIMENT.

I gave "Love by the Numbers" to my 15 year old granddaughter for her birthday. She absolutely went bonkers. She loves horoscopes so when I saw Glynis McCants on Dr. Phil I thought numerology might excite her also. She cannot put this book down---she is doing charts for everybody she knows--so she was able to absorb and understand this completely. She told me I never have to give her another birthday gift - she loves it so much she wants to marry it. It is so great to give a gift that opens a brand new door for someone---and I am so glad she has an edge on the dating scene--she is charting every boy she knows. This book really taught her alot about herself and all her family members also. It has opened up a new understanding of all types of relationships and I only wish I had read it at 15. This is a great book and it is easily understood.

I was introduced to Glynis through John Edward, and was intrigued by numerology. I bought this book thinking it would be an overview of numbers but was i wrong. This book is a very intense and in depth look at all the numbers their meanings, who would be compatible with whom and how to get all of your numerology. If you are interested in finding out if they are the person for you, or even your own numerology this would be the book to go to. Awesome. Thanks Glynis.

I LOVE this book. Just the book I needed to help me understand the struggles and powerful connections I feel in my close relationships. Glynis' description of each vibration calculated by numbers were right on target. She's like a psychologist describing human nature with the power of numbers. Accurate! The book is not only insightful but an enjoyable read. We're all made up of energy/vibrations and this book helps identify & relate to the uniqueness we each bring. If you're looking to improve on the relationships you already have and/or a guide to picking the right love for you this is the book! Buy your copy and be fascinated with what you learn about yourself and others with numbers!!
