Whereas other metaphysical tools reflect an individualís personality, his or her character traits, talents, future forecast, and so forth, the Diamond reveals the chain of cause and effect that runs through our lives for the purpose of inspiring growth and offering guidance, both on the physical plane and the spiritual plane. The Diamond could be called the I Ching of numerology, because it reveals the links and interaction between the material body and the spiritual body.
The top part of the Diamond reflects your spiritual body. It is the heaven. The lower part of the Diamond represents your physical body. It is the earth.
The Diamond divides 81 years of your life in 36 time periods, each of which is presented in a 4-corner configuration Ė a kind of mini-diamond - within the Diamond. In addition, while each of these time periods affects us for 18 years (overlapping in four and a half year segments) the dominating influence of each of these mini-diamonds moves to the foreground for only one year. However, it sometimes repeats itself two or three times, often spaced a few years apart.
A diagram of your personal Diamond based on the letters in your name is included with your report. If you look closely, you will find the letter c next to a number in the top half of your Diamond, which points to your current Challenge. In the lower half you will find the letters r, a, and o, next to three numbers which form an inverted triangle. The numbers within this triangle reflect your Root, Action Key, and Outcome for that period.
Your Challenge, located in the top of the Diamond, is like a divine quest meant to guide you on your spiritual path. The Root, Action Key, and Outcome are of the earth, and outline the process that enables you to satisfy your Challenge.
Your Root reflects the source; it is the catalyst that starts a particular chain of cause and effect. The Action Key tells you how to respond. And the Outcome shows the probable result.
Lost for many generations, the Diamondís revival over the last 20 years is a result of the research and contemplations of Hans Decoz. Page 3

The Challenges are like Divine Quests, and are found in the top half of the Diamond. The top half of the Diamond reflects our spiritual evolution, while the lower half, which is where we find the Root, Action Key, and Outcome, tells us of our worldly existence and experiences. Therefore, the Challenges reveal the true purpose of our struggles from a celestial viewpoint. The Root, Action Key, and Outcome, reflect the trial, response, and outcome on the material plane, a chain of cause and effect which exists for the sole purpose of delivering the perspective needed to satisfy our Divine Quest.
Within the context of reincarnation, the concept is that what we take with us when we leave our human body are certain qualities we earned or enhanced as a result of the life, or lives, we lived on this earth. Our Challenges are inspirations of a divine source that seduce us into learning and growing on a level above and beyond our worldly mind. And as is befitting Divine Quests, the Challenges tend to be somewhat veiled and subtle.
Paul, your Challenge is 2.
Paul, this challenge is about pushing the boundaries of your perception. As a human being, you are well acquainted with the rumblings of your mind. After all,there is an almost nonstop one-way conversation going on between your mind and you. If you are like most people, you will probably identify with your mind completely Ė each and every moment of the day. In fact, most of the time you are so emerged in the rumblings of your mind, that you are your mind. There is no distance, no separation.
But every once in awhile, as when you sit quietly and focus inward, another kind of consciousness comes through. And you recognize that your true self lives much deeper within you. That, in fact, the real you is simply listening to your mind. You realize that there is a distance between you and your mind. And this, Paul, is the kind of understanding that can change your life more dramatically than winning the big lottery. In fact, when this understanding metamorphoses from an intellectual recognition to a full-blown realization, it is much better than winning the lottery. It is a first step to real freedom. Only when one is fully conscious of his or her true Self as separate from the mind, can one accept or discard whatever the mind delivers Ė which constitutes freedom. When a person is not aware of this separate identity, that person has no choice but to follow the mind in absolute obedience Ė no questions, no choices, no freedom. Without this separation, itís like one person arguing in front of a mirror.
The Root is the catalyst that sets a chain of events in motion. Based on the concept that we are here on this earth in order to learn and grow, the Root exposes weaknesses or challenges which need to be dealt with. Once we acknowledge the Root we get the opportunity to respond, thereby starting on a path of healing and growing.
Paul, your Root is 3.
Paul, you often feel as if you are no longer able to communicate with others the way you used to. It is as if your ability to express yourself has somewhat disintegrated. Or at least, it appears to be frustrated to some extend. You do just fine on a superficial level, but as soon as the talk gets personal, you find yourself without a tongue, so to speak. As a result, you bottleneck your feelings. You no longer share your dreams with those you are close to. Instead, you try to hide behind sarcasm and cynicism. The truth is, Paul, you are a strong person but you have surrendered a part of yourself to a fear of intimacy. You are afraid that someone might take advantage of you once you reveal your deeper self. Not only that, you are afraid to confront this fear and you do a good job hiding it from yourself. The upside of that attitude is that it doesnít bother you much at all. You simply
go on living. The problem is that it bothers those around you. They feel that you are pulling away. Your friends and family members also feel an uncomfortable distance. And, although at this time you may feel that you are doing just fine, the feelings of loneliness and alienation that occasionally emerge in the small hours of the night will only get stronger.
Think about how you can overcome your distrust. What is it that you are afraid of? Finding the answer to this question is your first step to overcoming your apprehension.
YOUR ACTION KEY
The Action Key represents the guidance we are offered to help us on our path towards mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. Paul, your Action Key is 1. Paul, it is time to take charge of your own life; to be more focused and wash away the residue left behind as a result of some experiences in your childhood and your teenage years. You are carrying too much baggage.
It is time to look for other avenues; explore other options. Trust your judgment. And donít be afraid to be called opinionated. You need to define your goals without the pressure of too many peripheral influences. You need to cut some ties. If you take a moment to contemplate this, you will undoubtedly be able to identify the relationships, the memories, and the conditions that are holding you back.
The key ingredients needed to get past your Root for this period are confidence, focus, and ambition.
The Root sets us on a path. The Action Key guides us along that path. And the Outcome indicates what it is we find at the end of this path.
Paul, your Outcome is 4. Paul, you will come out of this Root and Action Key with a stronger foundation in the spiritual as well as the material world. You are more comfortable with your self-image and the role you play in this life. On the material plane improvements are concrete and tangible; improved financial circumstances, advancements in career, and so forth. You also discovered that when it comes down to it, you do not disappoint yourself. You have proven to be reliable and trustworthy. You have kept promises that were not easy to fill, and you have overcome many temptations.
However, as is always the case with the Outcome, there are some people who emerge with the exact opposite result. Such a person may find his or her foundation to have been eroded; there is considerably less financial security and a depleted sense of self-worth.
