Is there such a thing as compatibility with power spots?

In Kyoto, the city of a thousand years, numerous shrines and temples are scattered across, hosting many so-called power spots.

Have you ever visited a power spot and felt nothing special, or conversely, felt surprisingly lighter and more clear-hearted?

This happens because each power spot resonates differently with an individual’s frequency.

In this article, we’ll use Kabbalah numerology to find Kyoto power spots that harmonize with your soul number.

What’s Your Soul Number and Element?


Calculate your soul number with your birthdate:

① Add each digit of your birthdate separately.
(Example) Born on January 16, 1997
→ 1+9+9+7+1+1+6 = 34

② If the total is a double-digit, add those digits together.
(Example) Total 34
→ 3+4 = 7
→ In this example, the soul number is ‘7’

③ If the total is a master number (like 11, 22, 33), don’t add the digits.

Find your element based on your soul number:

Earth: Soul Numbers 1, 6
Water: Soul Numbers 2, 8, 22
Fire: Soul Numbers 3, 7, 33
Air: Soul Numbers 4, 9
Ether: Soul Numbers 5, 11

Based on these elements, we’ll guide you to your compatible Kyoto power spots.
