The history of numerology explained
There is a lot of mystery about the origin of ancient Chaldean Numerology. It’s unclear to determine its true origin however there are many myths that include epics of Gods, kings, and heroes of the ancient world. According to the most popular myth, it all started in the ancient Persian city of Pasargad, which was founded by the Greek hero and demi-god, Perseus and his wife and queen, Andromeda of Ethiopia. They had five sons and two daughters. They were named the Perseids after the father’s name Perseus. Therefore the future empire they built was to be called Pars and Persis in Greek and Persia in the modern English language.
It was believed that when their firstborn son Perses (born 706 BC) was six years old, he kept complaining about his name. His parents just considered this as childish protest, but one night a stranger came to their palace and he asked to see the little crown prince and his parents – the king and the queen of Pasargad. It appeared that the stranger was no one but the Mesopotamian God, Enki – god of the two holy rivers, Tigris and the Euphrates. Enki is also known in Greek Mythology under the name Poseidon – god of the Sea. Enki declared that the child should now be known as Kourosh Jahangi Hakhamanesh and not Perses anymore. The name Kourosh is known in modern language as the name “Cyrus” and in ancient Aramaic language it means the “far-sighted”, and the name Jahangi means “conquerer of worlds”. The meaning of the name Hakhamanesh is unknown, but in modern language, this name is translated into Achaemenes, and future generations of his heritage were called the Achaemenid Dynasty and the empire was later to be called Achaemenid Persia.
What no one was aware of was that the young prince – now known to his people as Achaemenes – underwent a Numerological name change and a reprogramming of his destiny into the very highest vibrations of wisdom, strength, and total personal balance and happiness.
As his transformation took place, the young prince became more and more intelligent, handsome, charming, charismatic, and popular for every day that went. When Achaemenes was only ten years old, his father made him co-ruler of the kingdom of Pasargad. Achaemenes gave amazing speeches to his people. He was a brilliant economist and he created an abundance of wealth to the people of Pasargad. When Achaemens was only 16 years old, his father Perseus abdicated and crowned Achaemenes king of Pasargad. how Chaldean numerology started
Not only was Achaemenes a great politician, a public speaker, and a great economist, but he was also extremely open-minded. He allowed all religions, lifestyles, opinions and he declared freedom of speech to his people, so everyone was allowed to speak their mind and even to speak against him if they wanted to.
The rumor of his great popularity expanded to the whole region and many other city-states wanted to join his kingdom, so he became able to expand his new ideas to the region without any real war or fight. Among major city-states that joined him kingdom, one can mention Susa, Ecbatan, and the whole area up to Parthia (modern-day Tehran and all the way up to the Caspian sea).
The young king once more met with the god, Enki and from Enki, Achaemenes learned the Numerology called Chaldean Numerology. This sacred knowledge was passed from generation to generation. After Achaemenes came other great kings, but the greatest was a king called Darius The Great (549 BC). When Darius The Great was king, the Achaemenid Empire was the greatest empire the world has ever seen. It included 35 countries and it was spread across three continents: Europe, Asia, and Africa. It stretched all the way from Egypt and Greece and all the way up to the borders of China.
In 520 BC, Darius The Great made a new constitution that renamed the empire according to Chaldean Numerology which took the empire to a whole new level. Innovation, wealth, and happiness among the people were taken to a whole new level. Open-mindedness was the key, and this seen among many facts as in Egypt, Darius The Great financed and hired his best craft men to build temples for the worship of the Egyptian gods despite he believed in the Persian god, Ahura Mazda (grandson of the Mesopotamian god, Enki – also known as Ashur who was believed to be the patron of the Achaemenid Persia – similar deity to Greek god Ares and Norse god, Tyr).
Most of the empire learned the Chaldean Numerology, and as it gives one the key to read the destiny of people, in Egypt one’s real name was a secret. In ancient Egypt, only the mother of a child knew the child’s real name. This was intended to keep the privacy of one’s destiny – past, present, and future. Therefore people called themselves nicknames as only the legal name dictates one’s destiny and not one’s nickname. Subscribe to our newsletter to learn more about numerology numbers
Back to the myth of the reason why this paradise-alike empire ended, was that the Mesopotamian god, Enki had an arch-rival, which was his half brother Enlil who wished nothing good for mankind. It was even believed that the god Enlil was responsible for the great deluge as he hated mankind so much.
So it was believed that Enlil paid a visit to king Darius III (380 BC – 10 generations after Darius The Great). Enlil lied to the king that he possessed an improved knowledge of the Numerology system, that would take his own life and his empire to a whole new unseen level of prosperity. All he needed to do was to change his own name to what Enlil dictated and the empire likewise. So he did, and no less than half a year later, Alexander the Macedonian was invading his great empire. Darius III had an army of more than 350,000 of the best soldiers in the world and Alexander had only 12,000, but still he was unable to defeat Alexander. Everything went wrong, and it was a disaster. Bit by bit, the once-great Achaemenid empire got destroyed. All temples, libraries, and universities that held knowledge of Chaldean Numerology was set on fire. One of them was the glorious palace at the city of Persepolis, which was also known as the “wealthiest city under the Sun”.
Many Persian people fled to India. These are today called the Parsis. They have tried to keep the ancient tradition of Chaldean Numerology alive. In the 1800s, an Irish mystician named William John Warner – better known as Cheiro – visited the Parsis in India and learned Chaldean Numerology. He wrote a book called “Cheiro’s Book of Numbers” which describes the basics of Chaldean Numerology. However, his teaching is very basic due to the loss of content during ages. However, Grand Master Numerologist, August Darius Danielsson in 2014 met a very ancient family in Shiraz, Iran which could prove that they are direct descendants to king Achaemenes and all his successors. They had kept the original knowledge of Chaldean Numerology for millennia. This family possessed ancient clay tablets that described the advanced formula of Chaldean Numerology.
