If you're like most people, wondering what life is about and searching for meaning in your life, Fairbrother's book is a good place to start. As a life coach, I've always relied on self-reflection, meditation, and careful examination of the emotional clues of daily living to help people find life purpose.
I was skeptical whether numerology could be a useful tool in the search for life meaning, but was pleasantly surprised. It can!
Fairbrother's book starts out by removing some of the mystery from numerology and the term occult. This is interesting, but the real meat of the book is in constructing your personal Chaldean chart. With just two facts, your full name and date of birth, the chart provides excellent clues to your life purpose, your strengths, potential weaknesses, and challenges for your lifetime.
Skeptics might counter that the results could apply to anyone, but I found that not to be the case. My results were fairly specific and on-target while the results for different name/birthday combinations were well off target.
I recommend Fairbrother's book to anyone sincerely searching for life purpose, with the understanding that the results will provide clues and possibilities that should be combined with self-reflection and perhaps consultation to reach the best clarity of life purpose.
