Thanks to a good friend's inspiration, my interest in Numerology has been reignited. OK, so I've been known to be a bit woo woo at times; going off on spiritual or metaphysical tangents, sometimes for years at a time. Numerology is something I seem to return to time and time again. I first tapped into it several years ago; it holds a certain intrigue for me. Maybe because it is analytical and intuitive; melding mathematics and science with spirituality.
Numerology is not so much a prediction of things to come but more like a road map of how things can be manifest at their highest potential. If we're aware of the road map we have the opportunity to focus our energy and attention; therefore, manifesting exactly what we need and want in our lives and in the Universe.
The Chaldean system of Numerology is based on the fact that letters, representing sound, have vibrational patterns. The Chaldean system assigns the number value by sound. The theory being that our birth name and our birthdate bring certain significance to our numerological blueprint. The blueprint shows us how our personal vibrational patterns resonate with the energy around us; with other people in our lives, with our home, our workplace, our community and our world.
One of my favorite aspects of numerology is the numero-log. Using the numbers correlating with the letters in our birthname and our birthdate, you build a numero-log. This log can act as a roadmap, helping us see what is happening in our lives. It helps us see how to use that vibration and energy to move from where we are to where we want to be. It makes us responsible for our present situation and our future; offering insight and guidance to help us take advantage of our unique place in the world.
When asked if I "believe" in numerology, tarot cards or astrology; my answer is "I don't know". I have the same answer when it comes to God, Jesus or prayer. I tend to think it's all just symbols and ideologies to help us through our lives. I do believe all things have potential for good and equal potential for bad. So whatever I believe in the moment, I try to stay in the goodness of it. Staying out of the judgment, the intolerance and the condescending behavior of thinking that I have some higher or better knowledge than someone else. I try to remember it's just a "belief", no matter how hard I believe in it; it's just a belief. I try to touch base every day with what's real, the people and the life around me; treating everyone and everything with respect.
I don't know what I believe. I live in the moment and believe what I see, hear, touch and feel in that moment. I believe in handling the moment with my best intention and my best efforts; loving and respecting those around me. And I believe in trying again the first, second, third and millionth time I've slipped up.
I never forget to laugh at myself, I try not to take myself too seriously, but those of you who know me know that's one of my biggest challenges. I enjoy philosophizing with friends and others. My mind seems to always be tuned in to spirituality; meaning, I'm fascinated with the sociology of religion and belief systems; how they start, how they form, how they fall. If I knew how to make money by researching and writing about religion, culture, belief systems I would. But for now, I'll just sit in my favorite armchair with my cup of coffee and blog for the entire stratosphere but mostly for myself.
