The image of the ancient mystic slaving over sacred text looking for hidden meaning is a compelling one, but as much as I am guilty of romanticising this kind of imagery I still remain thankful that we live in an age where a wide variety of tools exist helping to give even laypeople access to the mysteries.
The Gematria, and numerology in general is one such system that lends itself particularly well to the internet age. How many of can claim a skill with both numbers and ancient Hebrew? Luckily a find kind souls have taken it upon themselves to prepare web pages that can automate the process giving us the ability to focus only on the meaning without fear of errors in the method.
Below is a list of some of sites that have proven fruitfulness for practitioners of Kabbalistic numerology:
This site offers a Gematria calculator with a simple, Google like interface, where a word, phrase, or number can be typed into a simple search box returning its Gematria value. One of the interesting features of this site is that it tracks the most common terms that are searched for, giving a sometimes disturbing glance into the what’s preoccupying the minds of amateur numerologists around the web. For the more serious uses a Hebrew Gematria Calculator is also available.
A personal favorite of all the sites available out there, Numberman.net has a full range of tools available including both Hebrew and Greek Gematria calculators. The functionality of which includes all four major Gematria calculation techniques.
This site offers a basic Gematria calculator probably more representative of what is commonly available online. The site uses a simple point and click interface where letters are selected one by one. What makes Thelemistas.org stand out from many of the other sites is that it offers a fairly wide range of alternate systems including Enochian, Latin Qabbalah, Greek, and Hebrew.
Roduargo.net is more of a Kabbalah dictionary that a calculator, what continues to draw me back to this site is the multi-layered search it performs combined with the definitions returned. It contains more than 5300 terms and concepts from ancient Hebrew, and often seems to put the answers one is seeking right up on the screen without any further digging. If you are in the habit, as I am, of breaking complex phrases or terms down to their prime factors before turning to the Gematria then this is probably the site for you.
