Ayurveda and Numerology

You may have noticed that I have changed my name a little bit.  My given name is Lisa Marie.  Marie is my middle name, after my grandmothers.  My married name is Coffey.  Legally I will still be Lisa Marie Coffey, but personally and professionally I am now going by Lissa Coffey.  Lissa still pronounced like Lisa, just spelled with two s's instead of one.  Why, you ask?  I recently consulted with a Vedic Numerologist who did the numbers in my birthday and my name.  He came up with this slight change to bring more harmony to my numbers, and in turn more harmony to my life.  Since I have devoted myself to the study of Ayurveda, and am practicing it in every other way, I might as well try this, too!

Vedic numerology is a little bit different than western numerology.  There are different values for some of the letters, so the totals add up in the name differently.  If you're interested in learning more, there is a wonderful book that explains all about it: “Numerology with Tantra, Ayurveda, and Astrology: A Key to Human Behavior, by Harish Johari.  I will  write more about Vedic numerology in upcoming issues.
