**Numerology has a great deal to do with the numeric value of the**

**alphabet and there are many legends and theories about how this**

**came about. The alphabet itself was inspired by pictorial**

**representations that recorded elaborate stories. These full**

**pictographs originally were abbreviated to form hieroglyphics with**

**each symbol depicting a word. As more time elapsed the glyphs were**

**further reduced to represent individual sounds and then the**

**consonants and vowels that we know today.**

**The modern alphabet that numerological systems are based on is**

**derived from an earlier hieroglyphic system that is still used by**

**Japanese and Chinese cultures. Each letter also symbolizes a**

**number. This has remained unchanged, even though our speech patterns**

**have evolved to make some sounds obsolete.**

**Each sound is thought to also have an esoteric spiritual**

**implication, with an essence that can be described as a number. Even**

**more meaning is given to the very first letter of the word.**

**Here is a breakdown of the numerical vibrations of the letters in**

**the alphabet according to ancient numerology systems that**

**originated in Babylon and Egypt. In these systems, personality was**

**analyzed by the first letter of the name.**

**A is the numerical equivalent of 1 and symbolizes confidence. When**

**it's the first vowel in a name, the person tends to be bold. On**

**the negative side, A can be critical of efforts of others.**

**B is the numerical equivalent of 2 and represents our emotions. A**

**person with a B first letter is friendly and a homebody. On the**

**negative side, B can be self absorbed if not a bit greedy.**

**C is the numerical equivalent of 3 and represents energy. C people**

**are talented and get along well with others. Negatively, C people**

**can be ruthless and cruel.**

**very powerful and is the letter associated with business. When it**
