Numerology offers a surprisingly accurate tool to gain insight into your character, talents, and abilities by analyzing the numbers in your birthdate, the numeric values of the letters in your name, and the numbers that serendipitously appear in your life again and again. While our personal numbers are the mirror that reflects our inner world, crystals are our helpers in the outer world to harmonize the energies we were born with. They are gifts from the earth that we are offered to unfold our divine potential. Through their beauty and wisdom, they can help us be more in tune with our destiny.

In this full-color guide, the authors explain how to calculate your personal numbers and work with the healing energies of gemstones to unfold the full potential your numbers reveal. Each of the numbers 0 to 9 is explained on the numerological level, including their qualities, energies, and how they act on human consciousness. The authors then describe which crystals resonate most with each number’s energy and which offer complementary energies, providing detailed descriptions of the gemstones’ spiritual, mental, and physical qualities alongside beautiful photographs. The authors also offer affirmations, meditations, and crystal healing techniques to connect with the energies of the gemstones.

By working with the gemstones that resonate with your numerology, you can enhance the strengths of your personal numbers. If a certain number’s weaknesses are manifesting in your life, you can discover crystals that will help to integrate and balance the number’s hindering effects. Together, numbers and stones offer a wonderful possibility to find your own way, recognize your true self, heal, and harmonize with the world around you. Let the numbers guide you and the crystals empower you!

The Number 1

Symbolism

Number 1 embodies unity and insight; it is an expression of light and the highest creative powers, representing self-confidence, self-awareness, and “consciousness of self.” Its symbol is a circle with a dot at the center, the dot being the seed that takes root in the material plane and fills it with light. This number is both one and all, perfect because it is indivisible. It is the beginning, middle, and end, the mother of all other numbers. The creative impulse and the collective potential of all ideas lie within it.

The sun, with its male aspect, is the principal planet of number one. It is the center of our planetary system and governs the zodiac sign Leo. Its energy represents the primal force and the source that delivers the gifts of light, strength, life, and vitality.

The Healing Crystal for Number 1

In ancient European cultures, ruby was the gemstone of the sun, reinforcing the planet’s powers with its vibrations. They represent inner fire, vigor, and passion, bringing healing and sun-filled warmth and relief to deep-seated fears and traumas. They encourage leadership qualities and deliver focus to visions and ideals. Rubies bring momentum and dynamism to our lives, encouraging us to be fully alert and aware, capable, impulsive, and spontaneous. They strengthen our decisiveness and support willpower, assertiveness, drive, and courage. Number one people can motivate their peers with their own ideas and ambitions.

Talents and Abilities

Number one people are active, healthy, and full of energy and ambition, boasting a positive aura, inventiveness, and marked creativity. They also possess a strong will and inner strength and are honest, fair, and brave. Intelligent and lively, they are individualists, while also being a little idiosyncratic. Number ones have a great potential for starting anew. They love to explore the unknown. Fearless, and with the common good in mind, they set out to right wrongs.

They like to help and encourage their peers, spurring them on, while remaining at their side with helpful advice. Warmhearted, with particular empathy for the sick and helpless, they also look out for children. They are able to put their own interests on hold without abandoning them entirely. Number ones are leaders, bringing new ideas and projects to the table. They are quick off the mark, while also observing and guiding their peers with wise thoughts.

They are original thinkers and open to new ideas, with an ability to make a clear distinction between the essential and the unimportant in order to act for the best. Their purposefulness, energy, and reliability lead them to success. The world has very high expectations of number one people, which in turn fires their ambition and they pursue their goals without hesitation.

Healing crystals that boost talents and abilities

Golden topaz, also known as Imperial topaz, is also a stone of the sun. It encourages us to strive for fame and recognition and has been associated with rulers for centuries. It helps us to overcome potential limitations, expands horizons, and supports us in the search for a purpose in life. It releases reserves of energy and boosts activity.

This healing crystal brings self-assurance and encourages inspiration, autonomy, and self-fulfillment. It reinforces individuality and our confidence in our own abilities.

Rutilated quartz, or sunlight captured in stone, as it has been thought of since ancient times, brings light and love to new beginnings. It boosts our connection to higher spheres, reinforces our vitality, and releases inner blockages. It opens doors, triggering positive situations that we may never previously have considered possible. Stimulating our spiritual growth and energy flow, it also supports us in maintaining an upright posture. This healing crystal helps us to see the bigger picture and is with us when we need to cast aside outdated structures in our lives, embark upon new paths, and understand life from a fresh perspective.

Weaknesses

The number 1 exposes us to constant change. Number one people always look after number one! They can be selfish, tactless, domineering, intolerant, insistent, and absolutely sure of themselves, their ground, and their opinions. They incline toward egocentricity, pride, aggression, intolerance, and headstrong attitudes. Number ones are often biased, stick stubbornly to their guns, brook no contradiction, and refuse advice or criticism. They have a tendency to use other people and will try to achieve their goals by any means at their disposal. When they find someone willing to take care of things on their behalf, they may become lazy and impatient. Number one people find it difficult to accept imperfections in themselves and in others; they are perfectionists and want to control everything in their immediate environment. Showing their feelings or offering forgiveness does not come easy to them.

Healing crystals that balance out weaknesses

Citrine is a wonderful crystal with considerable power and energy. It supports a sunny disposition and delivers well-being and vitality. This healing crystal brings self-assurance and confidence and instills a sense of self-fulfillment. It promotes individuality, harmony, and a zest for life.

Citrine refreshes brain cells and monitors our nervous system. It helps us to process and deal with experiences and insights, allowing us to shut the door on the past. This gemstone is our companion when we face resistance: no obstacle is too big, no road too long! It helps us to realize our ideas, goals, desires, and ambitions with serenity and confidence in times of stress.

Sunstone gives us the strength to change things and is consistently useful for helping us to recharge our batteries. It brings the gifts of optimism and drive, alleviates depression, and transforms fears and worries.
