Numbers are everywhere in our lives.

From clocks and watches to newspapers and emails, phone numbers and dates and money, numbers are constantly around us.

Numbers having such a strong presence makes them rich for synchronicity.

It’s through numbers that most of us receive the wisdom of the universe.

For number 16, when we notice it becoming synchronous in our lives, it can indicate that you need to spend some time looking inwardly to move forward with your journey.

## Breaking Down The Numerology Number 16

If you have begun experiencing synchronicity with the number 16, you might wonder what it means from a numerology point of view.

Let’s break down the numerology of the number 16 together, so that you can see how to apply it to your own life.

First, we take a look at the digits. The essence of the number is the sum of its digits. In this case, it is 1 + 6 = 7.

So the essence of the number 16 is the number 7, which is associated with introspection, intuition and intellectual pursuits.

In other words, it concerns the experience you have within yourself and without anybody else.

The individual digits then modify this meaning.

The number 1 is the first digit, meaning it is more critical to the meaning than the number 6 by about half.

Numerology number 1 is a widespread number across all spectrums.

It represents new beginnings, independence and drive. Even the longest, most difficult journeys begin with just 1 step.

The spark of excitement when embarking on something new is associated with the number 1.

Number 6 holds strong associations with family, domesticity and stability.

The home is the core of your life – it has its effects on everything else you do.

## Interpreting The Meaning Of Number 16

The meaning of a particular number at a specific time is unique to the person experiencing synchronicity with it.

Therefore, there is no catch-all interpretation here.

Seeing one interpretation can help you to know how the meaning of 16 might apply to you.

The essence is introspection. You have something that is bugging you that you have been ignoring.

Ignoring this feeling is bad for you – after all, it won’t go away until you take the time to examine your inner self.

You want to start something new, something that holds profound importance to your inner self.

Perhaps things have been difficult at home, and the universe is trying to prod you into self-examination to help you see the causes.

Or maybe you’re looking to expand your family!

The introspection may be to do with recognising your parental urges, and nothing is more of a new beginning than bringing life into the world.

Either way, the number 16 is telling you to stop ignoring your inner thoughts and pay them some attention, because something new is coming that will affect – good or bad! – with your home and  family.
