Michael wears many hats, including Numerologist, Author, Lecturer, Teacher, and life coach, but today we're going to narrow in a bit on one of my favorite topics, Numerology!
- Would you please introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Michael John Fierro. I am a Numerologist and the author of YOU KNOW YOUR NAME...LOOK UP YOUR NUMBERS! (an introduction to Numerology) which is available on my website.
- What exactly is Numerology? Many people know the term, but might not necessarily know what it is.
Basically, where mathematics is the study of numbers, Numerology is the interpretation of numbers. Numerology is an ancient, esoteric science that is based on numbers and it dates back at least 2500+ years. Pythagoras is generally recognized to be the 'father of Numerology'. He is credited with the following quote: "The human soul is 'at music' when engaged in pure mathematics. All things accord in numbers."
Mario Livio, author of 'Is God a Mathematician' says the following: "To the Pythagoreans, numbers were both living entities and universal principles, permeating everything from the heavens to human ethics. In other words, numbers had two distinct, complementary aspects. On one hand, they had a tangible physical existence; on the other, they were abstract prescriptions on which everything was founded."
I and others consider Numerology and Astrology to be 'metaphysical cousins' although they use different methods to determine the information in a reading. A good Numerology reading should coincide quite closely with a good Astrological reading. For me, what makes Numerology so accurate is the fact that everything that we can see, feel, touch, hear, all that we know can be reduced to a mathematical equation.
Numbers are the 'language of the Universe'. What makes it (in my thinking) different from Astrology is the fact that we will never, ever, discover a new number between 1 and 9. In Astrology, the discovery of a new planet would change some things. It would not necessarily affect its accuracy but, it would change things. After working with Numerology for the past 37 years, one thing I know for certain and, that is, you ARE your numbers!
- What will a Numerology Reading do for somebody?
The goal of my work is to create personal empowerment through understanding, acceptance and, responsibility. I present someone's chart as the "owner's manual" for their life for within a reading/interpretation is everything that one needs to know about themselves. The whys and wherefores of traits, habits, personalities, characteristics and, more. I am not a psychic. I consider myself a guide that helps others realize a better vision of themselves while providing information that can help them overcome difficulties and live a more fulfilling life.
- You've been working with Numerology since 1984, What is the most popular type of reading or service with clients?
My primary service is one-on-one counseling with an individual. I do all my readings using an online phone service that provides the client with an MP3 recording of their session immediately after completion of the call. Other readings available can be focused on relationships (either on the phone or a written report) and, charts for newborns and small children (under the age of 11).
- Do you have any thoughts regarding in-person meetings via online or email, and has covid changed that at all?
See my previous answer. Unless someone lives in my immediate geographic area I do very few in-person sessions, even before Covid. I will do private or corporate events in person, as well as book-signings and lectures.
- What do you love the most about what you do?
Being able to assist people on their journeys through life. Presenting someone with an 'a-ha' moment that allows the pieces to fall into place and providing clarity on an issue(s).
- Any final words of wisdom or parting thoughts for our readers in these trying times?
Be yourself. Be a good person. Work to maximize your presence in the world and be the best version of yourself that you can be. We are currently in a 5 Universal Year and one of the things that 5 represents is the human condition with all its intricacies and foibles.
Take the time this year to care for yourself while showing concern and compassion for your fellow travelers.
