The challenge numbers are things that you will be challenged with in life. These numbers are not meant to make your life screwy, they are there to help you grow. Since these numbers will be experienced as a challenge, the lower vibration of the number will be something you may struggle with. For example, if you have a 4 challenge, then you will experience the lower end of the 4 energy such as laziness, a tendency to cut corners to make money, extreme stubbornness and so on. This challenges you to discipline yourself, get organized and work to earn your own resources.
A 6 challenge involves perfectionism, preachiness, heavy handedness and other 6 related zingers.
The first two numbers of the challenge code are minor challenges. The first will be felt most in the first part of life, mostly tied to the first life cycle. The second will be felt in the next half of life, mostly tied to your second life cycle. The third challenge is called the Life Challenge, and will be felt for the entire life. This life challenge is a direct challenge to the life path number. Many times, the fourth challenge will be the same number as the third one, however, some people have a fourth challenge that’s different from the others. This fourth number will serve as the challenge tied to the third life cycle.
The calculations for each of the challenges are just like the pinnacles, but this time, you use subtraction. First you need to know the three life cycles. they are your Month, Day and Year. For example, Dec 11 1977. Dec = 3, 11=2, and 1977=6. We do not use master numbers when doing life challenges in numerology.
First challenge is first life cycle minus second life cycle.
Second challenge is second life cycle minus third life cycle.
Third challenge is first challenge minus second challenge.
Fourth challenge is first life cycle minus third life cycle.
