How to Live with the Overachiever in You

Did you know that if you Google “the key to success” you get almost 20 million websites? Every one of them focuses on ambition, money, power and success.

I happen to be one of those people who quit watching Oprah on TV because it was just too exhausting to try to be perfect all the time. I felt besieged on a daily basis to lose weight, eat healthy, be beautiful, make money and have a successful career to the point that my self-esteem began to suffer. There was so much to do to improve myself and so little time in the day! I do credit Oprah for introducing me to Egyptian cotton sheets which are truly worth the extra cost but she did fail to convince me that a Louis Vuitton was worth 40 times the cost of regular piece of luggage. At some point I realized I was good enough, inexpensive luggage and all.

The concept that a house is just a box you keep your “stuff” in resonates with me. The more stuff you have, the bigger your box. The bigger your box, the harder you have to work to keep it and you may end up working so hard that you do not have any time to enjoy all your cool stuff.  After all, how many TVs can you watch or how many cars can you drive at any given time? How does that saying go? All the money in the world cannot make you happy? Being driven by the concept that success equals money and possessions can leave you feeling empty in the end.

Perhaps what you consider to be achievements is the way to approach the overachiever in you. Define what success means to you. When your life is said and done, you cannot take possessions with you. If you have love in your life, emotional well-being, a deep connection to your spiritual side and quality of character, you are very successful. If you take time out of your day to appreciate the little things in life, you are ahead of the game.  Your accomplishments may not change the world but they do make it a better place to live in. If you came to realize what makes you happy in life and spend a great time doing that, you are the most successful of all. Perhaps that is the greatest achievement you can aspire to.

2014 Predictions Revisited

As 2014 enters the final stretch, it might be a good time to look back at the 2014 Predictions. Can you predict upcoming trends based upon Numerology? You be the judge. Below you will find the 2014 Predictions which were published 12/20/13. You will also find 2014 news headlines which correspond to the predictions. 

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.” We may learn of even more intrusive spying and surveillance that is taking place in our country and around the world. I feel this will create tension and a call for change.

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 see the true reality of our world? 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. Those that work in the metaphysical arena will find an increase in their work as more and more people look for insight and deeper meaning to their lives. I do suggest that you 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. Things look particularly troubling for Washington DC in general but it has more to do with an unbalanced individual rather than an international terrorist. I also am concerned for violence in our schools.  Depression, loneliness, mental illness, alcohol and drug abuse is likely to increase.  I strongly encourage you all to keep a watchful eye on any person you might know who has a problem with depression.

8/26/14 As suicide rates rise, awareness needs to follow

1/15/2014 ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — A 12-year-old New Mexico boy used a shotgun to shoot and wound two classmates at his middle school Tuesday morning before a teacher talked him into dropping the weapon and he was taken into custody, officials and witnesses said.

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 great importance in the scientific fields.  The 7 can be trying to the health and we all should embrace getting a little more rest next year. 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 and I think we may be blown away by new inventions.  On a personal level, taking a class or workshop or any form of education makes good use of the energy of the 7.

The 7 can be trying to the health is an understatement when looking at the Ebola outbreak and the recent Enterovirus D68 which is sweeping the nation.

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. I see this as being especially difficult for cyclones in India. I see California’s weather being influenced by strong storms and flooding on the East Coast. It is going to be a cold snowy winter especially for the west with unusually high accumulations of snow.

 Throughout the year, if you should find yourself in harm’s way because of a storm or potential flood it would be best to take heed of any warnings.

Storms, whether wind, rain or snow are intensifying. Earthquakes of larger magnitudes will continue.

The 14 that sits within 2014 has a strong association with changes and well as sudden and unexpected events. I have to mention that it also is associated with accidents. I see an unusual amount of accidents for next year. I believe they are focused upon modes of transportation such as trains, planes, boats and automobiles. They also could be related to industrial accidents.

9/12/14 2 Navy jets crash in Pacific
While I am on the subject of industrial accidents, Fukushima is highest on my list of priorities. I encourage you to do some research because the nuclear meltdown disaster at Fukushima in 2011 is still ongoing.  The problem has not been solved. This is not Japan’s problem, it is a world problem. Radiation knows no boundaries. Humanity should be very concerned and it is time to put every ounce of our resources into finding a way to contain the radiation and diffuse this disaster. If not, there can be far reaching ramifications. There is a potential for another strong earthquake in this area for next year. The crippled nuclear plant could not withstand another problem as there is too much to deal with already. As citizens of this planet, it is your obligation to care about Fukushima because after all, if radiation pollutes the planet, it affects us all. It is already happening and it needs to be addressed now.
Because the 7 Universal Year places emphasis on scientific research and discoveries, perhaps pooling our collective scientific intelligence would find answers to the ongoing problems with Fukushima but I also encourage you to pray for Fukushima and discernment for the people handling this situation.

We should keep our eye to the skies in 2014 because I expect we will have many light shows having to do with meteorites. I also anticipate new discoveries in our galaxy, perhaps new comets or asteroids. I think UFO activity will increase as well.

Going along with the truth being revealed, I do think we will address the growing trend in police brutality next year. Unfortunately this does need to be brought to light. Somewhere the premise of “innocent until proven guilty” has been lost. More and more we are witnessing police brutality which has more to do with aggression than the law. Cell phones and video cameras act as monitoring devices, recording what previously went unreported. Again, it is difficult to hide the truth under those circumstances and the truth will come to light.

We have seen some unprecedented progress in regards to big business being held accountable for illegal and unethical practices. Major companies such as JP Morgan and Chase have been successfully sued for civilian settlements in the billions of dollars. I feel this trend will continue where the financial world has to be regulated and loopholes that allow for unethical business dealings are closed. All in all, I feel the economy will have gradual improvement, not in leaps and bounds but more like chugging along. The stock market should be status quo up until October of 2014 but October could bring either very positive or very negative news about the economy and world markets. Whatever happens in October 2014 will influence our economy in 2015. Potentially, it could bring a crisis.
Most technology stocks should do very well. Microsoft will have a great year. Amazon is a sure thing.

When it is Your Time: The Numerology of Joan Rivers and Robin Williams

Just so you know, I did not write this blog to sensationalize the death of Joan Rivers or Robin Williams. They should be remembered as the shining stars they were, for the amazing lives they lead and for the contributions they made to the world of comedy. This article is meant to explore their Numerology and the numbers that were influencing them around the time of their deaths.

Joan Rivers was a 3 Lifepath and there is a long line of great comedians with that number in fact, Robin Williams was born on July 21st (2+1-3). They are in good company with fellow 3s: George Carlin born May 12th (1+2=3), Bill Cosby born July 12th (1+2=3), Rosie O'Donnell born March 21st (2+1=3) and Eddie Murphy born April 3rd.
 People with 3s in their Numerology Chart have a great sense of humor and the gift of expression.

Robin Williams had numbers in his chart that made him extremely vulnerable to stress, anxiety and depression. He was a brilliant comedian but also was very sensitive. He was an 11/2 Hearts Desire and a 2 Personality. I am sure he struggled to find balance.

At the time of their deaths, both Joan and Robin's ages added up to the number 9. Joan was 81 and Robin was 63. Both also had the number 9 present as their Essence Number. In Robin's case, all of his Transit Numbers were 9. For those of you not familiar with Numerology, Essence and Transit Numbers come from the letters in our name at birth and they influence our experiences on a year to year basis.
The 9 becomes significant when we understand its meaning. The 9 represents endings and completions and a letting go of something of importance in our life.  It can represent a myriad of all different kinds of endings that happen to all of us in life such as loss of a job, ending a relationship or in some cases, death.When a 9 is present in a person's chart we can not assume it means death, but it is a possibility. When a person dies and 9s are present in their Numerology Chart, you can be reassured that the soul planned their departure from the physical world at that time.
No one can predict death using Numerology because you can never be 100% certain, but when it does happen, usually the signs are there.

In 1974, a book written by Numerologist Kevin Quinn Avery gave advice for when you have double transit numbers in your chart.
O,O transits "prone to heart attack or serious disorders pertaining to the heart"
At the time of her death, Joan Rivers had O,O Transits and the news reported she suffered a cardiac arrest during an elective procedure.
I think that is enough said.

 The ability to make people laugh is a priceless gift. Joan Rivers and Robin Williams were incredibly successful at it. Still, all good things must come to an end. I take comfort in looking at their Numerology Charts and knowing they planned their own  "Exit Stage Right".
