LIFE PATH 3 – EXPRESSION / OPTIMISM
The lesson you must learn is the joy of expression; of yourself, life everything. If you can be open, warm hearted and friendly, you will be admired by others and desired as a pleasant companion. More importantly you will lift the spirits of those around you and help them to look more optimistically toward the future. You must learn always to look on the bright side and seek to find the beauty that can be found in the world.
You will have been endowed with a sense of fun which is to be used for the benefit of all and this is the important part of the lesson! You must learn to use your energy and enthusiasm to develop a leadership potential which others will want to follow.
Some Numerologists believe that this lesson is the easiest to learn. I would like to see them make people laugh when they don’t feel like it themselves. It is for the number 3 to pick people up when they are down yet must pick themselves up when they feel low.
Number 3 loves the limelight and being the centre of attention. The positive number 3 is always the ‘life and soul of the party’. Number 3 can tend to be drawn toward the expressive arts – from acting to music, painting, sculpture etc. Number 3 loves nothing more than to be in a crowd or in good company – maybe telling a story, a joke or recounting an event; and probably embellishing the truth with artistic licence!
Life Path 3 loves to create in every sense of the word and may generally find it very hard to be serious for any length of time. When number 3 is out of the limelight they must be careful not to become moody or taciturn. The other end of the negative scale is to become too frivolous or superficial. Number 3 has an inbuilt desire to lead and may therefore develop a tendancy to hog the limelight. You must allow others the opportunity to express themselves or have their moment of glory. Unselfishness is part of the lesson as well.
Life Path 3 is a ‘doer’. This lesson is designed to be active. 3 is a good starter but must work at finishing the task, especially when things are mundane or boring. Number 3 must learn to keep things in proper perspective. Some things in life are serious and you must learn to act accordingly and proportionately.
Above all, try to remain optimistic. This lesson can be callous at times but optimism can only be fully developed in the face of adversity. Fortunately most 3’s tend to believe that life is too short to mope around and that is the fulcrum of the lesson itself. Life is short! so make the best of it for yourself and set an example for others to follow.
