      Gematria has been used by many religious and mystical traditions over the centuries, including kabbalists, astrologers, magicians, and alchemists. Its use was particularly important in Jewish mysticism where it was believed that certain words possess special power when they are composed with specific gematria numbers. Words with powerful gematria values were thought to have magical properties that could bring about specific results or provide protection against evil forces. The four ciphers above are referred to as the “Four Base Ciphers” of the English language. You will notice that the majority of your examinations and deciphering will have the highest accuracy and meaning when you stick to these four ciphers. For grammatical reasons, certain Hebrew letters have two different pronunciations. However, the numerical value of the letter remains the same regardless of its pronunciation. Marty Leeds’ work has helped me significantly in understanding the relationship between number and language. I’m grateful to be able to use this app as an educational tool. An example of gematria is the word Hebrew word chai (חי), which means alive. Using gematria, it can be uncovered that the word chai has a numerical value of 18 in the Mispar Gadol variation. Because of the numerical value of the word in gematria, 18 has become a lucky number for many Jewish people. We always struggled to serve you with the best online calculations, thus, there’s a humble request to either disable the AD blocker or go with premium plans to use the AD-Free version for calculators. While some people use gematria purely for entertainment purposes or as a divination tool, others believe that it can offer valuable insights into human consciousness and spirituality. Although ciphers can be devised all sorts of ways, it is important to note that the four base ciphers are typically the most relevant when dealing with the English language and English Gematria. Deriving numbers from letters can be very insightful when seeking the fullest understanding of topics. One premise that each person should have before fully exploring Gematria is the complete understanding of the numbers 1 through 9.
