Master Number 33/6: The Illuminated Nurturer

33 NumerologyPinAs a Master Number 33/6 Life Path, your life’s purpose is to use your nurturing and healing gifts to serve yourself and others in a joyful and accepting way.

Please read the description of the 6 Life Path, because that is the foundational energy that defines your life’s purpose.

Can Life Path numbers be double digits?

In Numerology, when you see double-digit numbers that repeat the same number (such as 11, 22, 33 and so on), these are considered Master Numbers. If you calculate your Life Path number and get an 11, 22, or 33 before digiting down to 2, 4, or 6, then you have a Master Number for your Life Path.

The Master Number brings a higher vibration and an intensity that is undeniable. It “ups the ante” substantially, and means you’ve come with a higher spiritual purpose, however you define it.

The meaning of Master Numbers in Numerology

You could feel high-strung when working with a Master Number as your Life Path. It may feel like there’s a constant push and pull to do more and be better, sometimes to the point of distraction. You might also notice that you hold higher expectations for yourself, even when others can’t see those feelings cropping up for you.

A Master Number ultimately means you’re here to “master” your life. It indicates you will have some intense challenges and even more significant strengths.

When You’re In Alignment, You Are:
Family-oriented, idealistic, responsible, artistically creative, supportive, devoted, loving, sensible, helping and healing others on a grand scale, supremely creative, a masterful communicator, performing selfless service with joy and with a heightened level of emotional self-expression.

When You’re Out Of Alignment, You May Be:
Perfectionist, critical, idealistic to a fault, self-righteous, meddling, irresponsible, indulgent, non-committal, self-absorbed, prone to addictions, self-destructive through elevated self-righteousness and demanding perfectionism.


What are the characteristics of Master Number 33/6 Life Path?

How can you make your mark as a compassionate healer, compelling visionary, and as a joyful, inspired, creative communicator?

The Master Number 33/6 Life Path is about coming to terms with your need for perfectionism and control, ultimately using your talent for inspired creativity to help and heal others—wherever they happen to be in their life journey.

It’s a rather “saintly” job description, one that requires a delicate balance between your innate responsibility and joyfully using your emotionally sensitive and imaginative gifts to be of service to others. An intense Life Path, it can take years to understand and act out in a constructive way. And it has the added benefit of being both service-oriented and supremely creative.

The Message for Master Number 33/6

Reign in the unyielding and controlling perfectionism that can present itself as assertive judgment and criticism—of yourself and other people. Understand that you may not come into your full power as a Master Number 33/6 Life Path until later in life—into your 50’s and beyond—as it takes a while to get enough experience under your belt to find your passionate focus.

Be patient and know that you’re here for higher-level service in the world. It may not be an easy ride—but it’ll be amazingly gratifying. When out of alignment, addictions can become an issue, as can intense superficiality. Avoid the tendency to make your world too small in an attempt to feel in control.

And a note about the paradox of 33/6

Master Numbers conflict with themselves. For instance, the 33 is a double 3—all about creative self-expression, communication, emotional sensitivity, performance, and joy.

Yet the foundational energy for the 33 is the 6, which is all about home and family, responsibility, higher service, and visionary pursuits.

If you’re on a Master Number 33/6 Life Path, you might feel ever-so conflicted. When you understand the demands the Master Numbers place on you, you can begin to work with yourself in more effective ways, harnessing all that amazingness you have to offer without crashing and burning in the process.

Remember: Working with Master Numbers is a marathon, not a sprint! Train, be flexible, pace yourself, and invest in the right equipment. Otherwise, you’ll either burn too bright too quickly, or you’ll deaden the flame and always feel as though you were meant for more. Find the courage and strength to take risks, moving yourself and your enterprises to the next and higher level.
