Know your Number
Numbers tell the truth. And each of us has our own special number, from 1 to 9, which is the key to who we are, how we think, react, act, and interact.
We’re all different, and the Body of 9 system reveals those innate differences, helps us learn to resolve them, brings us closer together.
At a glance, we can tell what your number is. Through your posture, body type, how you physically express yourself. And once you get that number (and those of the people around you) you’ll get so much more out of yourself, and your relationships – personal, social, familial, professional.
A New Experience
With this body-based Natural Number awareness, you will have a new and improved ability to acknowledge and appreciate the gifts you’ve been given. You will understand your fundamental thinking, actions, and beliefs built into your body. You will begin to see yourself and others in a new light from an open perspective.
Everyone has a Natural Number
No matter where you come from, what your race, culture or ethnicity are, and how you have been nurtured, your body is activated in one of nine regions that shapes how you experience almost every aspect of your being.
About the 9 Natural Numbers
Natural Number 1
Acceptance, Appreciation and Connection
Natural Number 1 is about recognizing, respecting and experiencing the value in others, to feel, see, and share the awe, beauty and majesty of the world and the people within it. Deeply honoring and respecting others derives from this experience of honoring and connection.
Natural Number 1’s activated region is at the top of the neck under the chin, in the Hyoglossus, and the other muscles under the chin.
Natural Number 2
Relationships, Engagement, Movement
Natural Number 2 is about connection through engagement to others. It is a merging with others, attuning with our whole being to the body of another person for the sake of connection alone. Natural Number 2 teaches us that we must start everything with connection through active engagement. They just want you to show up as you are!
Natural Number 2’s Activation Region is at the the top third of the belly, the upper Abs.
Natural Number 3
Inspiration, Drive, and Focus
Natural Number 3 is about a focused connection to others that ignores the persona and goes straight to our being, our greater purpose, and using the joy of connection from that relationship to inspire us into action toward that purpose.
Natural Number 3’s Activation Region is at the top of the sternum—at the Sternal Notch on the Manubrium—supported by the top rib and the clavicle. A full smile that goes all the way into the eyes and emanates from deep inside is included.
Natural Number 4
Alignment, Authenticity, and Deep Connection
Natural Number 4 is about our authentic relationship to our infinite self. They teach us that through knowing and accepting our timeless selves, we are ready to transform using our connection to our deepest life force energy.
Natural Number 4’s Activation Region uses the muscles of the lower abdomen.
Natural Number 5
Experience, Knowledge, and Understanding
Natural Number 5 sets and holds the context for transformation—what do we know, what do we need to find out, how is what we know related to everything else and what are the relationships that need to be taken into account? They evaluate what they learn in the context of what they know. This enables them to find inconsistencies and evaluate information to determine accuracy and importance. They help others to understand what is happening and what it means, they know how everything is interconnected.
Natural Number 5’s activated region is the back and top of the head.
Natural Number 6
Significance, Aliveness, Action
Natural Number 6 points us in the most alive direction, providing the energy necessary for movement to overcome any inherent inertia. People with this Natural Number experience the energy present around them, then decode and magnify it back, so everyone can tap into the infinite energy of creation.
Natural Number 6’s Activation Region is in the ribcage and chest, centered at tthe sternum.
Natural Number 7
Change, Honesty, and Possibility
Natural Number 7 is about purpose and possibility. People of this Natural Number see the unique purpose of a person, group, process or community, and they can present possibilities that have not yet been envisioned that will move those involved toward their greatest purpose.They also enable us to let go, so that we can move forward toward our great vision and stay open to what we do not yet know.
Natural Number 7’s activated region is the Glabella, the flattened triangular elevation of the frontal bone located at the center of the forehead just above the brow line, often referred to as the third eye; this Region also involves the Frontalis muscles on the side of the forehead, which pull the scalp back.
Natural Number 8
Integrity, Safety, and Trust
Natural Number 8 guides us to move forward together to create with consideration and integrity for the benefit of all. Aligning the body with the physical source of creation, they draw energy from the earth. This guides them to create an atmosphere ripe for growth and change. They know what to do, the order to do it in, and who needs to be involved.
Natural Number 8’s activated region is located at the base of the spine, at the sacrum down through the gluteus and thigh muscles, and is activated by tilting the sacrum toward the ground and clenching the Gluteus Maximus muscles downward, causing the sacrum to align to support the spine.
Natural Number 9
Harmony, Integration, and Balance
Natural Number 9 holds the container for transformation, bringing the transformation and change processes to completion and releasing the energy to create. Natural Number 9 understands how to include everything, create unity, and shepherd our human experience through the transformation process without using excess energy or force.
Natural Number 9’s Activation Region is along the spine and between the shoulder blades, on the back at the T6/T7 vertebrae, supported by the Rhomboid and lower Trapezius muscles.
Systems of nine have long been part of our human awareness.
The numerological significance, the symmetry and symbolism of 1 through 9, have been reflected historically in cultures and systems around the world such as the Egyptian Ennead, the nine Norse Gods, the nine-pointed star used in both Christianity and the Bahai Faith. Today the nine are seen in systems like the Enneagram, Human Design, and other personality models.
The physical aspect of our human expression we now call Body of 9 was first noticed using a combination of nine Enneagram groupings and Aikido Martial Arts exercises. Susan and Martin Fisher, Co-founders of Body of 9, found a calling to research and understand the manifestation and implications of this recognition of our human experience. Since then, both have dedicated their time, energy, and resources to:
1) working with and talking to as many people as possible – their research has spanned 8,000 people, 50+ countries, all races, and dozens of ethnicities.
2) cataloging and studying the physical and related personality characteristics and
3) writing about and teaching others to understand the 9 Natural Numbers and to activate all nine regions in their bodies.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I have more than one Natural Number?
In almost all cases, the answer is no. You have one primary Natural Number, one region that is born active. It begins to develop in the womb, is visible from birth, and stays with you until just after you die. We have seen a few cases in trauma situations with true multiple personality disorder where there is evidence of two Natural Numbers active within a person. But this is extraordinarily rare.
You can learn to activate all nine regions of the body – which is what we teach in our training programs, but this does not change or add Natural Numbers.
- How does my posture affect my Natural Number?
Posture is very important. Allowing your natural movement to straighten your body and holding an erect posture opens up the flow of energy in the body. You will activate the distinct region associated with your Natural Number if you allow your body to lift and straighten up. Rolling the shoulders forward and collapsing our posture restricts our Natural Number region, minimizing our power. Our mothers were right: sit and stand up straight for maximum strength and impact!

- Does Natural Number change over the course of your life?
Your Natural Number does not change. It seems to be defined while in utero. If you talk with mothers of multiple children, they will report that their babies behaved quite differently from each other while in the womb. Over time, the region associated with your Natural Number gets more developed and activated. In older people, that region stays developed even as other muscle groups atrophy. It remains the stabilization area in the body for you and those who share your Natural Number. Even people with poor balance can hold their posture of activation with surprising ease when it is activated.
You are born with a Natural Number and it is your superpower for your entire life!
- Why is this not more obvious our in the world today?
There are many contributing factors to why this has not been obvious. First, we rarely gather in groups large enough or group ourselves together based on Natural Number, so that we have sufficient quantity to notice these similarities. Second, it can be hard to see this system at work unless you can activate the Natural Number region in your body. Finally, both our mind’s eye and our physical eyes can impede our ability to notice this context at work in our world. Our vision works such that we fill in gaps and our attachments cloud our perceptions. Both make it hard for us to see this important truth. Read more: Why isn’t this obvious?
- How does Body of 9 relate to personality typing systems?
Body of 9 is a body-based identity system that reveals a particular set of physical characteristics. Our research is based on grouping people by these body characteristics, then asking questions about how they experience life. Personality systems are created by asking questions, then grouping people based on their responses. Learn more at this blog post: How does Body of 9 relate to personality typing systems.
- What is the relationship between astrological sign and your Natural Number?
At this point, we are not sure what the relationship of one’s Natural Number is to one’s Astrological sign. We believe there is likely to be some correlation, but have not yet researched the subject adequately to give a definitive answer. Your astrological sign is based on the energetic arrangement of the stars and planets at the moment of your birth. We are energy beings, so this is likely an influence on how we develop. Though, we have not seen that certain birthdates and times correlate to one’s Natural Number. If they did, people born at the same moment would share a Natural Number. Our observations thus far do not show evidence of that.
- Do you offer any payment plans or scholarships?
We never turn anyone away for lack of ability to pay for a session. If you are experiencing financial hardship, or have some other reason that you are not able to pay for a session, please contact us with your circumstances and we will arrange an appropriate option for you.
- Is my Enneagram number the same as my Natural Number?
- How many days in advance do I need to cancel to still receive a full-refund?
If you cancel within 3 days after registering or 3 full days prior to the event, which ever is sooner you will receive a full-refund. Your deposit will be added to our scholarship fund to support others finding out their Natural Numbers in the event that you are not able to attend .
- In a relationship, is there a Natural Number that goes particularly well with mine?
Any two people of different Natural Numbers will have a relatively predictable dynamic that will include powerful positive attributes and behavior, as well as challenges. Depending on the combination, we see different patterns emerge. Any two Natural Numbers can create something special together. It depends on what you are wanting to create and how well you are able to understand each other’s unique ways of being. The Body of 9 is an incredible tool for just that!
Attraction is a function of familiarity with a Natural Number. We tend to be most attracted to the Natural Numbers we know best, usually those of close family members and caregivers.
