Number 7

Number 7 people have a quest for knowledge. They need to travel extensively at some point in their life.

They need to read books from other cultures and even beyond earth space and time.

However, financially 7’s need to ground themselves at a place they call home.

Otherwise, this anxious tendency will interfere with their ultimate mission to be a channel for new wisdom.

The number 7 also symbolizes the original seven wonders of the world—the great mystery, magic, and ceremony. So as a 7 person, you tend to look deeply at things.

Thus you are someone who is an observer of mysteries of life, a seeker of wisdom. You are pretty much a natural researcher. 

You tend to work better when you have extended periods of time alone—sometimes even longer where you are a full-on hermit.

In fact, it’s better you work alone.

Similarly, when Pythagoras once said, ”Those who desire wisdom should look for it in solitude.”

At times, your views and values are mysterious to others, as your quest for knowledge has changed the beliefs of your early life and has helped you connect with your divine nature.

Life Path Number 7 Meaning

Number 7 is also the final number in the 1-5-7 Mind Triad. Thus it carries a great deal of intelligence.

Often you are taken aback by the lack of understanding and intellectual capacities in others.

For you, the questions of ”why” are truly integral to your thirst for knowledge.

You often like to approach life from a logical perspective.

However, you must marry intuition with logic to get to deeper mysteries you are yearning to solve.

Specializing in any field suits you well, as you can put all your eggs into one basket and delve yourself into infinite depths exploring knowledge and wisdom.

However, if you ever feel the well has dried up, then you need to find another source of life to satisfy your curiosity and to expand your knowledge.

You are not a fan of anything trivial or superficial. And you don’t like to be under anyone’s watchful eyes.

Anyone who invades your privacy, which you guard like a lioness that guards her cubs, is not anyway welcome.

You like to keep your private life a secret, but at the same time, you have eyes in the back of your head, taking in everything around you.

Number 7 is quite the number of holding secrets. So it’s no surprise the fictional spy, James Bond, has the number 007.

Number 16/7 Creativity And Relationships

As a number 16 with the essence of the number 7, you enjoy creative arts. Your ability to learn and intuitively channel makes you a magnetic and unique performer, whether as a writer or artist in any field.

In your intimate relationships, you need privacy more so than anything or a cave so you can escape for solitude.

You can be very loving and devoted, as long as you don’t expect your partner to live up to your long list of ideals.

Since you can intuitively sense what is true and untrue, you tend to go ahead without creating the space for your partner, and you allow them to discover the wisdom and truth in their own way.

Others who are not in your circle of trust need to earn it, but when they do, you embrace them wholeheartedly and with openness, and you expect the same in return.

Spiritual Meaning Of Number 16

As a 16/7 person, you enjoy nature, especially near the ocean, although if it’s not near the ocean, you prefer somewhere away from the crowded cities.

So a place that feels like your spiritual sanctuary.

7 is also the metaphor for growth in your life. It bridges the light and dark, the seen and unseen, in your daily life.

So make your life a celebration, a symphony to spirit, source, or God.

You are someone who understands the reason why darkness exists in your life because you know you are the lightning bolt of truth, and you always radiate brilliance.

To the world, you are the shining light. You light the darkness whatever way you can because it is your eternal gift.

When you open up those sacred halls of wisdom within you, which will give you direct access to the truth—as shown in the records of time and timelessness.

Your divine mission can benefit a large community of like-minded souls—to reach out and inspire.

Challenges Of Number 16

Because of your natural wisdom and quest for knowledge, sometimes you can get impatient with those who cannot catch on fast enough.

So, naturally you are frustrated because you don’t understand why others don’t find the solutions.

Also, since you can spot when there is something wrong, your perfectionism can turn you into a critic that craves perfect results—instead of being open to the good of the situation.

So it would be best if you guarded against being skeptical in life because others have disappointed you or because of emotions from a previous life experience.

Your strong personality requires you to balance your powerful energy with playfulness.

Otherwise, you will only focus on the powerful, accomplishment aspect of number 16/7 at the expense of joy and love.

You can be very secretive and by not revealing much of your true intentions.

Although it’s okay to keep your own issues private, but not at the expense of being distrustful or not trusting others.

In intimate relationships, you need to be vulnerable emotionally at times and not just intellectually.

But sometimes, you mistake intellectual openness with emotional vulnerability.

When you do get out of alignment, know that you are a channel for light and love without conditions on how or what way that wisdom should channel through you.

Sometimes a break away from the matter at hand is the solution.
