Birth Name and Numerology

Hans Decoz

How can a name given to you at birth, reflect anything about you? Isn’t it kind of arbitrary?

Every metaphysical science is about recognizing the hidden relationships between the visible and the invisible, the obvious and the obscure, matter and energy. Nothing stands alone in this universe. Everything is connected to everything else. It is simply a matter of following a thread. Sometimes the connections are obvious. Sometimes they are not.

The concept that your name as given at birth reveals much about you as a human being; your personality, your likes and dislikes, your talents and your weaknesses, may be somewhat strange on the surface, but a closer look offers a different picture.

On my web site, you will find one of my favorite subjects Language and Numbers. It talks about the ‘coincidental’ relationships between common words, and the things they represent.

My friend Tom Monte and myself used to play this game quite often. Take a word and analyze it as you would a person’s name.

For example, let’s look at the words river and tree.

River has a Heart’s Desire of 5, meaning movement, freedom, dynamism, and change. Its Personality number is 22, revealing that it is one of the most powerful forces in nature. It slices through obstacles. The 9 Expression means that it gives of itself for the well-being of all.

Tree provides a wonderful array of numbers, beginning with its 1 Heart’s Desire, suggesting its independence and its strong will to survive. A tree’s upright form itself suggests the 1. Its Personality number is 11, showing its spiritual nature its reaching up toward heaven and its inspirational influence to all. Its 3 Expression symbolizes the ability to communicate both its spiritual power and beauty.

When people first started using words, sounds I should say, they were perhaps just guttural noise used to warn each other of approaching danger. Or picture some Neanderthal using smacking sounds to show appreciation for the chunk of meat he is putting his big crooked teeth in. Or soft moaning sounds to express desire for a woman. What these sounds had in common, is that they were suitable to the occasion. Even at such an early stage in our evolution we had enough intuition and sense of emotional effect, to apply the proper sounds to an event. From there, we evolved, very slowly, and became capable of expressing more detail (finesse?). First, there was one sound used to warn the tribe that danger was approaching. Next, we developed two distinctly different sounds for the same purpose; to warn of danger. But one was used for mammoths, another one for bears. Et voila. The birth of language.

Even in those early days, when Neanderthals roamed the earth and Homo Sapiens were the future (has anything really changed?), we had the intuitive connection down pretty good. We didn’t use soft smacking sounds when we were about to be overrun by a herd of big hairy elephants, and we didn’t scream and roar in pure panic when we wanted to express warm and fuzzy feelings for each other. (Although I have known some people ……. well, better save that one for some other time.)

The same intuitive understanding applies when we name a child, or assign a word to a newly invented object, or anything else we need to name. You may wonder though, if this naming of little people is not far from perfect. After all, if it is just a matter of intuition, we will probably screw it up quite often. Actually, I believe it is perfect to such an extend that we could not mess it up even if we tried.

The mother has known the child since long before she even became pregnant. The father ditto, of course. The connection has always been there. And when the baby is named, the intuitive connection is powerful. Even when I hear stories about misspellings, last minute changes, and so forth, I consider those to be the final touches to make sure the child receives the proper name.

Some people don’t like their names. Some even hate them and never use them. Still, the magic works. A careful analysis will probably reveal the source, of this dislike.

Hans Decoz

Born on May 15, 1949 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Hans Decoz has been a student of numerology since 1969, when he discovered an old and rather worn out book on the ancient spiritual science in a secondhand book shop in Amsterdam. For many years, he experimented with the tools of numerology, reading and studying everything he could find on the subject. Hans traveled throughout Europe and Asia in search of more understanding and knowledge of the different forms and techniques used in numerology. He used it to better understand his friends or acquaintances, or to interpret various events on the universal as well as the personal plane. Only after he had overcome his intense skepticism was he able to see the practice as yet another example of the ultimate unity, integrity, and wholeness of the universe. In 1982, Hans began practicing numerology professionally in Houston, Texas. By then, he had a deep understanding - both of the science, as well as what it suggested about life itself. Soon he had a burgeoning practice, rich with the many strata of Houston's population - from the hardworking housewife and laborer to the wealthiest of Houston's business elite. Ever since he was a child, Hans demonstrated advanced abilities in mathematics and art. He loved to figure out complex mathematical problems and, once completed, put aside such work for hours at his easel where he produced drawings and paintings. These abilities eventually led to fascination with computers, for which he also had a special talent. Now he wanted to combine these native abilities with his understanding of numerology. He also wanted to make that understanding more widely available. In 1985, inspiration struck and Hans developed the renowned computer numerology software program known as the DecozChart. That program proved to be revolutionary. It was the first (and to this day it is the only) numerology chart-maker program capable of producing a complete numerology chart that included fifty years of forecasting cycles. The chart itself - a beautifully designed layout - was placed on a single page, visually capturing the many cycles and changes each person goes through in any 50-year period. Following the chart-maker software program, Hans started working on a computer program that would produce a complete numerology report for individuals. After two years of writing, Hans called on his friend Tom Monte to help edit the data base of text files; together they devoted four years to the creation of a numerology program that provided people with complete personality profiles and future forecasts. Until then, no one had created a program capable of calculating a person's complete numerology chart, and then producing a unique report that described the meaning of each of the person's most important numbers. It is true that some small, rudimentary programs existed, but this was the first program that could produce an in-depth, personal reading that consisted of 25 pages or more. As everyone knows who has received their own personal reading, those numerology reports are written with incredible insight, compassion, and understanding of life. Hans Decoz currently resides in Bisbee, Arizona. He lectures and offers courses and personal consultations. Hans is currently working on his second book. His first book: Numerology; Key To Your Inner Self with Tom Monte, was published in 1994 by Avery Publishing Group, NY. The book has since been translated in several languages, including Russian, German, Turkish, and Dutch.
