Greetings and welcome.


I’m LaVerne Baker Hotep, Numerology Practitioner, human potential specialist and founder of Verna Darnel International, a consultancy specializing in helping women and girls recognize their innate abilities, expand their creative potential, and align with their personal and universal soul purpose through Numerology.  I am a wife, mother, grandmother, community educator and peace advocate. And among my many other endeavors, also a performing artist, radio talk show producer and host.  Welcome to my website.  I was drawn to the intuitive and transformational aspects of this ancient art and science over thirty years ago while browsing through a Michigan metaphysical bookshop. A numerology book fell from a shelf and literally landed at my feet.  When I picked it up and perused the pages, it felt as though I was being reacquainted with something very familiar.  Like a fish to water, I was drawn to the fundamental principles of Numerology.  I quickly and intuitively understood the symbolism of numbers and my spirit resonated with the truths therein. I purchased the book, and from then until now not a day has passed that I have not researched, practiced, tested, reflected upon, and been fascinated by the insight and accuracy of Numerology. This esoteric philosophy became a love of my life, and the meaning of numbers became woven into the fabric of my everyday existence.

I have used numerology to guide my decisions in every aspect of my life and I have helped empower hundreds of clients by revealing the meanings of names, dates and cycles. I have found it to be a powerful self-help tool, affirming our own inner whispers of wisdom. My unique approach combines Numerology and Intuition to create a profound synthesis of both ancient and spiritual sciences, providing insightful and inspiring consultations.

In addition to teaching a much sought after Numerology class at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Lifelong Learning, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I offer private readings, group workshops and lectures,  and address all things numerological my Internet radio program, Numerology for Enlightened Living©.

Simply put, numbers are my passion and bringing this knowledge to bear in the world is my purpose.  I want to live in a world where everyone, especially women and girls, reaches their highest potential.  Numerology is a pathway to self- discovery, self-acceptance, and clarity about what you came into the world to contribute. It is my joy and privilege to analyze, interpret and share the knowledge inherent in the language of numbers.  I believe that through this work, I fulfill my sacred purpose for the creation of a better world by using Numerology to illuminate the path of anyone who seeks to live a more enlightened life.
