Temperament Affects Decisions

September 2, 2008

Speaking of decision-making … in approaching tasks or solving problems, firstly I usually think and consider things through and thoroughly. Then, it would be continued by search of facts or evidence to support my hypothesis. Before making any choices, I let my intuition flow and color my judgments. Sometimes the decision would stray a little bit from the expected layout …  yet it often turns out to give a good result.

Somehow, there are also other circumstances where my decisions rely heavily on intuition. Not likely to be drawn from sudden urges or desires; but merely because there are not enough information which are valid from true premises. Well .. no choice, my friend, especially when the clock refuses to stop ticking and the time span reaches its limit. However, I would prefer the use of logical thinking in order to find results or draw conclusions. I’m most confident that satisfying outcomes are stemmed from well-thought decisions.

Compare the above illustration with an expression in Numerology known as “temperament“. Our temperament is fourfold, according to  the four divisions of a man: body, mind, heart, and spirit. Here they are:

Physical – represented by body and concerned with material aspects, practicality, system and order.  Mental – represented by the mind and concerned with the reason, logic and facts. Emotional – represented by the heart and concerned with emotions, feelings, affection, imagination, inspiration, creativity, and artistic endeavors. Intuitional – represented by the spirit and concerned with inner-awareness, non-materialist and psyche.

Each of us have different temperaments depending on the degree of balance between the four components mentioned above. It gives a clue how we tend to make choices in life. In my case, reasons (mental) and sentiments (emotional) are the ones that work back-to-back in most of my decision-making process. While facts (physical) and inner-guidance (intuitional) are relatively overrulled. In the past two years I have learnt to trust my intuitions, though, and it had helped me in making decisions when forthcoming conditions are not easily forseen or predicted.

In Numerology each plane is associated with the letters that shape up our name, and our preferences are expressed by the intensity of each plane shown by the most number of letters. You can do your own analysis or otherwise, go inward and reflect to understand your personality makeup.

So, what’s your temperament and how do you use your energy in making choices? Are you inclined to be practical, logical, emotional, or intuitive?  ~

Feeling Empty Inside?

August 29, 2008

Each of us have heart’s desires which might be consciously realized or not, related to either one or two numbers below which are associated with certain needs.

When our heart’s desires are fulfilled, we sense satisfaction or tranquillity ~ a state of peace and calm.

When our heart’s desires are neglected ~ emptiness and unhappiness are likely to reside within us, no matter how succesful we might appear to be.

Each of us are expectantly the ones who understand the food that feeds our soul. Unfortunately, many of us, for different reasons, are disconnected with our inner-self and put great efforts in compromising and pleasing others who claim to know about what are best for us.

If you feel emptiness … ongoing loneliness … voids deep inside your heart .. then this is your wake-up call. Listen to what your inner-voice has to say: You deserve to be happy ~ with the source of happiness defined by you! So … go for it!

True happiness is the inner joy which nothing outside can destroy ~

Inner- versus Outer- Self

August 28, 2008

If anyone asks me about my favourite colors, I would immediately answer: Bold Red, Black and White! Why? I don’t know exactly. However, Green and Orange are often the colors of choice for my clothings. Why? Hmm.. now I’m starting to figure out why.

When I studied Numerology, I understood that our heart’s desire might conflict with our outer personality …OR .. it might not! Depending on each person, of course (don’t forget ~ each of us are unique individuals). The heart’s desire is the inner motivation that underlies our choices and actions ~ knowingly or unknowingly. While the outer personality is how we project ourselves to the world ~ or how we want to be seen by others. In my case … Bold Red, Black and White represent my hidden desires .. whilst Orange and Green reflect my outer personality. Now, I’m going to relate these colors to certain characteristics.

Bold Red, Black and White ~ My Heart’s Desire (Number 22 modified by Number 11)

As far as I know, Bold Red is associated with energy, strength, determination, passion, desire and love. Black is often related to power, elegance, formality and mystery. White is all about light, goodness, innocence, purity and virginity.

Orange and Green ~ My Outer Personality (Number 3 modified by Number 4)

Orange combines the energy of Red and the happiness of Yellow. It represents enthusiasm, fascination, joy, creativity, attraction and encouragement. While Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness and fertility.

For some of you .. the colors associated with me might seem like a dazed mismatch. To others who know me well .. I’m sure the previous examination could give a clearer picture of my personality and comprehensively explain the kind of person I am ( please don’t smile 😀 ).

Some people are easy to read because the colors of their heart’s desire are exactly the same with what are captured by their surrounding. They are often described as ‘being true’. However, it doesn’t mean that those whose nature are contradictory are ‘untrue’. Sometimes they don’t even understand why they are like that. It takes a lot of effort for them to harmonize their inner- and outer- self.

What I’m trying to say, My Dear Friends … it takes time to see the combination of colors that beautify the people who are close to us .. our love ones. Yet, we might not be fortunate enough to see all the rays of their colors.

It might take your whole life to understand someone completely. So be patient .. accept .. and forgive. Enjoy the process of getting to know the person 😉
