Changes Ahead

Life is a buffet of experiences with a myriad of choices and endless directions to go in. We all need to channel our inner “Indiana Jones” sometimes, especially when it comes to the unexpected events in our lives.

 Wouldn't it be lovely if we could pick and choose all the many changes that come into our lives? No more being at the mercy of sudden unforeseen events but rather, changes we have given thought to and made an informed decision about. We tend to be creatures of habit. We prefer our jobs to be secure, our relationships to last forever and that tomorrow will bring us more of today. No surprises.

 If you give a moment’s thought to your life, you will realize you have been in a constant flux of change. You are not the person you once were, nor are you finished with your evolution. In order to grow and mature, you have to step outside of your comfort zone and venture into new territory. The more you reflect upon your life, you also begin to realize that although you may have resisted change in your life, upon retrospect, it was necessary and ended up being positive in the long run.

 Yet we fear change to the point that it can paralyze us in a state of inaction. We resist going into the unknown because it is uncomfortable not knowing exactly what the next day will bring. We live in our scheduled environments and struggle against any disruptions to our plan.

 If you could simply trust that your soul had an agenda from the moment of your birth and that you actually did plan all the unexpected changes in your life, you could learn to embrace change. The problem is you have forgotten the plan. You have also forgotten that you brought all the abilities you need to handle whatever adjustments that comes your way. Knowing these things eases the fear.

 Life can be a roller coaster at times. You can sweat bullets, hang on to the safety bar with an iron grip and scream or choose to throw your hands up and enjoy the ride. My advice, choose the later.

We would rather be ruined than changed;
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the moment
And let our illusions die.
~W.H. Auden

There but for the Grace of God go I

I can remember as a child, being raised in a Catholic family, hearing the phrase "there, but for the grace of God, go I" . My Mother would exclaim it on numerous occasions, usually whenever she saw another person with a serious medical condition. My Mother was pretty predictable and if I happened to be with her when a person in a wheelchair went by, I counted down the seconds until the phrase came out of her mouth.
On some level, it made me worry a great deal about being in God's good graces.

Fast forward to the present moment.
At least once a month I have to report to the local cancer treatment center to have a medical phlebotomy. I have a genetic condition which builds up too much iron in my body which if left untreated, is life threatening. The only way to lower my iron levels is to remove blood. In a way, I find this humorous because I have always been afraid of needles and blood tests. I can only surmise that there is some greater plan in this experience and perhaps that involves overcoming my fears. I know the experience has made me stronger.

Each month as I am taken back to the "treatment room" , I am surrounded by cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. I am sure I stand out because I look very healthy in comparison to the very sick people surrounding me. My heart wells with compassion. They are all so quiet, the patients, and I wonder to myself  what emotions they are feeling. I see their families sitting with them supporting them and I think about how love is such a key element in life. In my mind I am struck by how each patient gives opportunity for their loved ones to demonstrate love," in sickness and in health".  Each and every one of them are a survivor and each and every one of them inspire me.

I am able to observe the wonderful staff of nurses who go about their jobs with a caring and positive attitude and I wonder if they fully realize how angelic their mission in life truly is. I have come to understand how much they really care about the well-being of their patients.  I know I am being forced to go to the cancer center but these nurses choose to. Surely their souls arranged for an opportunity in life to express such love and compassion.

There is a woman who is there every time I go and she checks in with each patient, offering drinks or a snack and asking if there is anything she can do for them. She has a stash of hand made afghans somewhere and she offers them to the patients. I heard her say that each one has been prayed over as it was created. I am in awe of her kindness.

I know if you could view this room from a spiritual plane, you would come to realize that all the souls present are there for some purpose of their soul's evolution.  I think about the phrase "There but for the grace of God go I" and I know,without question, this room is filled with God's Grace.

Your New Year’s Resolution Based Upon Your Personal Year Number

It is a beginning of a New Year and we all make our resolutions to try to better our lives in the upcoming year and my wish for all of you this year is that you resolve to be kinder, more loving and more tolerant of each other but do not forget to be equally kind, loving and tolerant of yourself. Be true to yourself and live your life joyfully by being exactly who you are. Celebrate your uniqueness. Love yourself with abandon.
Each day, resolve to greet each person you meet with respect and the same love. 
Know we all are on a Divine Journey and our souls have different agendas. By simply allowing, we show the greatest wisdom and love.

As you begin the New Year, I encourage you to spend a little time in thought. Focus on yourself.  Where do you see yourself in the future and how do you get there? What are your dreams and aspirations? It is time to set some goals about what you want to achieve in 2014 but please remember they do not have to be lofty goals. Too often we set ridiculously high goals and become discouraged and give up.  I want you to realize we can arrive at our destination taking one baby step at a time. Try to remember you are not in competition with anyone but yourself and ultimately, life is about being the best version of who you are. 

With all that being said, I will give you some suggestions for your New Year Resolutions based upon Numerology and your Personal Year Number. For those of you unfamiliar with Numerology, it is an ancient Divination tool founded upon the teachings of Pythagoras which uses your Date of Birth and Name at Birth to gain insight into your soul’s journey in this lifetime. If you do not know your Personal Year Number, you are welcome to visit this page which will give you an easy explanation on how to find it.

1 Personal Year: Resolve to be open to new opportunities and be ready to take action when they present themselves. 

2 Personal Year: Resolve to be patient and allow things to evolve. Good things come to those who wait 

3 Personal Year: 
Make your smile your most important accessory this year. Go forth and be creative and express yourself. 

4 Personal Year: 
Your resolution for 2014 should be “I will not procrastinate and I will be more efficient and organized this year.”

5 Personal Year: 
Resolve to step outside of your comfort zone and be more adventurous. Don't be afraid of making changes. 

6 Personal Year: 
Open your heart to give and receive love. Make your loved ones a priority. Know your kindness this year will bring you many blessings. 

7 Personal Year: 
Resolve to make a deeper connection to your soul this year. Meditate and look for insight. If life slows down, embrace it and know it is time to rest and rejuvenate. 

8 Personal Year:
You will receive recognition for your achievements this year but most importantly, take some time to reflect upon your journey that brought you to where you are. Acknowledge the goals you set and the effort it took to achieve them. 

9 Personal Year: 
Resolve not to hold on to negative attachments. Understand that this year represents a letting go of what no longer serves you. 

11 Personal Year:
Pay attention to serendipitous signs and messages and look for insight and guidance when they appear. 

22 Personal Year:
 Resolve to maintain a high degree of focus and discipline this year. Your hard work will pay off in the near future. 

I wish you Abundant Blessings in 2014!~

Predictions for 2014: A 7 Universal Year

2014  Predictions
A 7 Universal Year

I suspect we will have many revelations in 2014 which will bring to light information that was previously secret because the 7 is associated with uncovering the truth about things that are hidden. Could that mean there will be more Edward Snowdens and Wikileaks in the near future?  The answer to that is “more than likely.”

The 7 prompts us to question things on a deeper level and to discern what is true and what is not? Could this mean a mass awakening? Is it time to face reality? Will we begin to see beyond what we are told to be the truth? I suspect more and more people will begin to question status quo and begin to see a much clearer picture of our world and the deception in it.  Secret societies and institutions that operate behind closed doors and in a secretive manner may be exposed.  Conversations, thought to be private, may find a way to become public knowledge. Caught on camera scenarios, which expose the truth, will be common. Somehow, someway, the truth will surface.

The 7 is one of the most spiritual numbers. 2014 is a tremendously important year in regards to evolving our collective consciousness. We have been experiencing a massive expansion into all areas of the metaphysical and that trend will continue in 2014. We have seen spiritual philosophy make its way into the mainstream with television, radio and media. The 7 is considered to be the bridge between Heaven and Earth and that doorway will be pushed wide open next year. Awakened people who tap into that energy will experience a deeper connection to their soul. Spending time in nature, practicing meditation and yoga and approaching your life on a holistic level would be beneficial activities for 2014.  It is a year that emphasizes dreams, messages, psychic phenomenon, wisdom and our connection to the Divine.  People will begin to question “why am I here?” and “what is the purpose of life?”  and hopefully will find the answers. Take some time in 2014 to pause from your hectic life and do a little inner reflection. Do not take things at face value, but rather, question something that does not resonate with you. Follow your intuition. One of the greatest gifts of the 7 is a deeper understanding of yourself and the world you live in.

People without a spiritual connection will experience 2014 to be more difficult. It has been said by many in the spiritual field that the energy we are currently experiencing on the planet requires us to evolve in spirit. Those who have been doing the spiritual work will be better equipped to handle the energy of the 7 Universal Year but those who have not will struggle. We may see many more people become mentally unbalanced and unfortunately that will translate into physical acts involving violence. Depression, loneliness, mental illness, alcohol and drug abuse is likely to increase.  

The 7 has a strong association with knowledge, research and analysis. It may be a breakthrough year for scientists that could lead to the discovery of cures for diseases or other information of importance in the scientific fields.  Holistic health may receive recognition for its benefits and more people will seek out a holistic approach to their health issues.  It should be an excellent year for technology. On a personal level, taking a class or workshop or any form of education makes good use of the energy of the 7.
Unfortunately, the 7 is also strongly associated with water. The last 7 Universal Year was 2005 which brought us one of the most active hurricane seasons in history. Anything having to do with water like typhoons, super storms, hurricanes and floods will be a concern in 2014. Throughout the year, if you should find yourself in harm’s way because of a storm, it would be best to take heed of any warnings. This is not the year to tempt fate when it comes to water.

There will be a complete list of specific predictions posted on my website http://www.VisibleByNumbers.com by January 1st

The Reality of the Number 8 and a New Jersey Housewife

Teresa Giudice 
The Real Housewives of New Jersey

I have always loved biographies which probably accounts for my fascination with reality TV shows. Although some would argue that there is nothing real whatsoever about reality TV, you can not take away that these are real people and their lives are on public display. 
*cue Melissa Gorga's song here *

I watched the reunion show last night which made me curious about Teresa Giudice enough to explore her Numerology Chart.  On July 29, 2013, Teresa and her husband Joe were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, bank fraud because of making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud in a 39-count indictment. The indictment also charges Joe Giudice with failure to file tax returns for tax years 2004 through 2008. 

I watched as Teresa emotionally stated on the reunion show that she does not understand why all of this is happening to her . Oh Teresa..... your Numerology knows why. 

Teresa is an 8 in her Expression Number and when it comes to an 8 , what goes around comes around. It is interesting that Teresa mentioned during the Reunion Show that she does not believe in Karma because this is all about Karma.
 8s are held to high standards when it comes to being ethical and the last thing you want to do as an 8 is a crime that involves money. Any poor judgement on your part will be rectified in due time and Teresa, unfortunately your time has come. 8s are meant to experience success in life and all that comes with success such as money, power and position, but in the process of achieving those things, you must always do the right thing. 
It is not unusual for people who have an 8 in a prominent position in their Numerology Charts to experience major reversals, bankruptcy and even difficult circumstances that need to be overcome. Just ask Martha Stewart, a fellow 8, who spent time in jail for insider trading. Truth of the matter is Teresa, you and Martha Stewart have a great deal in common.

Teresa's chart shows that this is an especially difficult year for her. Her Personal year matches her Essence Number which may not mean very much to someone with little knowledge of Numerology but to a Numerologist, that spells trouble. She has an 11 showing in her chart at this time and the 11 can bring sudden and unexpected happenings. It is very interesting that the indictment happened on July 29th ( 2+9=11). 
With all of that being said, on an emotional level , this type of energy is very difficult when it comes to anxiety and stress. My heart goes out to her. 

Teresa is a 6 Lifepath and that goes a long way in explaining her closeness to her parents and family. She is the mother of 4 beautiful daughters. The 6 is cosmic mother energy and there is no doubt how much she loves her children and that they are her life.  Teresa's cookbooks are also right up the ally of the 6 because the 6 places a huge emphasis on home, hearth, family and yes, even cooking.

If I had an opportunity to speak to Teresa, I would reassure her that no matter what is happening in her life at the moment, she will overcome it. She is the ultimate survivor. I would encourage her to understand that if you set goals and work to achieve them, money and success will follow but money can never be the goal. It is all about what you can accomplish. I would caution her about being competitive with others. I would tell her the only person you are competing with is yourself. I would suggest that she help others to be successful along the way. Yes, it is about reaping what you sow, so make sure you sow good things.
 I suspect Teresa will learn these things eventually without speaking to me. 

It is always fascinating to me when you are able to look at a person's life and experience and validate it through the numbers. It helps me to understand that every experience serves a purpose in our lives and that our souls planned this journey. If we can look at our lives from a deeper level, we can gain incredible insight and Numerology is the key to that understanding.
