How does your home feel? Inviting and open? Like a secluded cave or a pre-party pad? We're surrounded by the vibrations of the spaces we occupy, with the help of numerology we can affect and change these energies. In this post, I have tips for you if you want to play around with changing the vibrations of your home.

Some vibrations are excellent for a workplace, others are great for a spa. Some house vibrations can attract visitors from the other side, and others can make you never get off the couch.

While no house numbers are truly bad for you, there are definite pros and cons to all. No matter where you live there's a reason that place came into your life, all homes teach us lessons and make us grow. Maybe you've lived in many different house vibrations or maybe you have a tendency to attract the same vibration in a home over and over again. It's always interesting to look for patterns in this. If you've ever felt that you and your home don't quite fit, there is a range of things you can do to change and improve the atmosphere. If you're on the hunt for a new home, paying attention to the vibration of the houses and/or apartments you see can be especially interesting.

Knowing your house number is great, but knowing your own base numbers gives you insights into the life lessons and goals you're here to master. Find your base number in my free e-book 'The 9 Base Numbers' when you sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of this page.

The first step is calculating your home's vibration. The vibration of your house or apartment building comes from its base number. When dealing with multiple digits you have to find the digit sum.*

Example: if you live at 2965 Chestnut Dr. your home is a 4. Because 2+9+6+5 = 22 and 2+2 = 4.

When dealing with letters use this chart to find the corresponding number:

1 A I J Q Y

2 B K R

3 C G L S

4 D M T

5 E H N X

6 U V W

7 O Z

8 F P

9 -

Example: If you live in 3D, you’ll have to find the digit sum of 3+D(4) = 7. The base number of your home is 7.

*The only house number that does not get reduced to its sum is 16. Most numerologists would advise against living in the number 16 as it invites in sudden change.

The apartment unit number is not as important as the actual street number for most homes. You'll feel the vibration of a single-family house stronger than if a building is multi-family because the vibrations of all the inhabitants will affect the vibration of the house as a whole. If you live in a large apartment building with lots of units look at both numbers and see which one feels like the right one.

The second step is learning about the different vibrations.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 1?

1 vibrates with strength and creativity, it has a strong positive vibe and is great if multiple base energies have to share a space, like a family house or a workplace. A company working out of a business address that vibrates with 1, would have a great chance of success, and a focused and unified vision. 1 is supportive and open, no base energy would have a problem with living in a 1 home.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 2?

2 vibrates with joy, ease, and play. It's easy to entertain guests and go with the flow in a 2 home. It can be hard to ground and get really down to business since the energy is not about work or defined results. 2 homes can be good for community living since no one will put down deep roots in the space or be overly territorial. 2 is a gentle energy and over time it can be too weak and unsupported for stronger base energies.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 3?

3 vibrates with ambition, work, and focus. It's hard to zone out and relax when living in a 3 space. A person living in a 3 home will have a tendency to focus on their career and real tangible results from any efforts. A 3 space would be great for a workplace or any space dedicated to turning ideas into physical results. 3 is a strong grounded energy and can be suppressive to the creativity of the gentler base energies like 2, 4, and 7.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 4?

4 vibrates with action, new ideas, and big endeavors. It's a place to think new thoughts and explore fantasy worlds. It's easy to get things going but maybe not always done in a 4 home since the energy is like a gentle push forward at all times. 4 is not a good house choice for multiple base energies. A 4 home can trigger 4's 8's and 9's. Especially 8's should try to stay clear of spending to much time in a 4 home. Over time the vibration can wear down and deflate the strength of an 8. Working on grounding is important when living in a 4 space.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 5?

5 vibrates with happy-go-lucky energy. There's lots of activity and an open carefree attitude about a 5 home. It invites conversation and sharing of knowledge and fun. 5 is a mentally active and open energy and it can be hard to quiet the mind and finish projects in a 5 home. All base energies can share a 5 space.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 6?

6 vibrates with love and care. A sense of community can grow easily in a 6 space. This vibration is all about deep connection and beauty. For a 6 living in a 6 home, the energy can slow you down. It can be easy to put on comfy yoga pants but then not get off the couch, those reruns of Friends don't watch themselves you know. 6 is a strong supportive energy and the ultimate family home would be a 6.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 7?

7 vibrates with spiritual and creative synergy. The intuitive side to all base energies will be boosted by living or spending time in a 7 space. You will get help opening towards guides and messages from the other side. A 7 space would be great for a place of worship, healing, or any business with a higher purpose. All base energies will be able to thrive in a 7 building but this gentle vibration is not supporting the power inherent in the strong base energies like 1, 3, 6, 8, or 9.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 8?

8 vibrates with power and destiny. An 8 home can feel closed off and apart from the rest of the world, and it can be hard to open yourself towards new ideas. A business operating in an 8 space might have a hard time making a space for itself in the market. An 8 home includes a connection to the other side, there's always a chance of unseen guests when living in an 8 home. Especially 9's living in an 8 home can open a very active channel to the invisible world next to us. The power of 8 will trigger 4's, 8's, and 9's. It is not advisable for these base energies to spend time or live in an 8 house, especially not together since they will amplify or even shut each other down.

How does it feel to live in a home that vibrates with 9?

9 vibrates with direct action and focus. This vibration can close gentle base energies down emotionally. This is not an optimal energy for a family but an excellent one for a business. It is easy to power through and get everything done within a 9 space. It's hard to talk through conflicts or focus on soft values in a 9 space. Structure and order rule a 9 house but if the base energies who live there are not vibing with this powerful current they will find it hard to complete the tasks at hand.

By now, if you live in a less than optimal house number; you're probably thinking, what can be done?

The third step is playing with the vibration.

Option: Give your house a name and in turn a new vibration. Use the chart above or a numerological calculator to find a suitable name. Find a name where the digit sum + your house number adds up to the vibration you want. Place the name on your house, mailbox or front door.

If you place it on the front door make sure it's on the outside and above the door handle. Observe the effect it has on all inhabitants. Play around with different names and numbers!

Example: House/building number where the digit sum is 4. You'd like to try 1 as a home vibration. Add a name like Lakeside (24/6) and get 1.

Example: House/building with a number where the digit sum is 8. You'd like to try 6 as a home vibration. To get to 6 (15) from 8 you add 7. Draw the number 7 on a medium-sized piece of paper. Tape the paper on the outside top corner of the main entrance door to your home.

The naming or re-numbering of your home works like an energetic intention and spell and will not last forever. Create a ceremony or little ritual around doing it and remember to thank your home for keeping you safe.

Be aware of not using 4, 8, or 9 if you or anyone in your household have these as one of their base numbers. Don't know your base number yet? Sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of the page and get instant access to my free e-book on all 9 base numbers. 

While you can never change the vibration of a home completely there are definite shifts in the energy of a place by using any of the above methods. Using Feng Shui and keeping a clean and decluttered space will always heighten the vibration of your home.

Some vibrations are excellent for a workplace, others are great for a spa. Some house vibrations can attract visitors from the other side, and others can make you never get off the couch. - Novalee Wilder
