How to Find Your Hidden Passion Number
Your hidden passion number is exactly what it sounds like. It reveals the strengths that can unleash your best self. To find your number, use your full birth name. Even if you have changed your name at some point, such as after marriage, use your name exactly as it appears on your birth certificate. Avoid using nicknames, and don't forget to include any middle names. Each letter of your name has a single digit assigned to it. Write out your full name and write the appropriate digit beneath each letter.
For each A, J and S, write the number one. For each B, K and T, write the number two. For each C, L and U, write the number three. For each D, M and V, write the number four. For each E, N and W, write the number five. For each F, O and X, write the number six. For each G, P and Y, write the number seven. For each H, Q and Z, write the number eight. Finally, for each I and R, write the number nine.
No need to bring out the calculator. Simply make a tally of how many times each number appears. Whichever number appears most frequently is your hidden passion number. If you have a tie, then you are lucky enough to have two hidden passion numbers.
