The Inner Dream numbers of a numerology chart are calculated using only the consonants of a person's full birth name. Write out the name (whatever appears on their birth certificate) with space below the consonants for a corresponding number. J and S are represented by the number 1. B, K and T are 2. C and L are 3. D, M and V are the number 4. N is the number 5. F and X are 6. G and P are 7. H, Q and z are 8. R is the number 9. If Y is not being used as a vowel it is represented by 7. If W does not follow another vowel and belong to the same sound (like in Shaw), it gets the number 5. Add together all of the numbers for the consonants in the name and reduce to a single digit. The master numbers of 11 and 22 should not be reduced here. The result is the Inner Dream number, which shows what a person's inner fantasies and desires are.
