How does numerology view the energy of the number 7? It is the path of inner reflection.
As we reach the tail end of July (the 7th month) it feels like a wind blowing the mind in all directions. Perhaps this is the wind that first struck July’s birthday celebrity Nelson Mandela when he began his journey of transformation.
Nelson Mandela, a visionary
Born on July 18, 1918, (7+1+8+1+9+1+8=35/8), Mandela had the abundant life purpose (or destiny) number of 8. The eight destiny is one of much strength, courage and charismatic leadership. The number also describes someone who can manifest change in the world. Mandela exceeded all expectations in his journey. He broke all the rules, went to prison for his beliefs, and his “rebellion” shifted the path of his country. Read more about Mandela through a numerological prospective.
The message of the number 7 – honor and trust self
Perhaps this is a good message for the world right now. July has certainly proven to be a time of inner reflection and going into the shadow part of self and our world. The seven vibration, in numerology, is all about spirituality and connecting to source. Yet with this inner reflection, it can be an uneasy time for many of us as we deal with conflict of family, emotions and the political strife around us.
We have witnessed upheaval, loss and chaos in the news and many of us have experienced the same in our personal lives. Violence, confusion, people coming in from the past to stir up old memories and patterns are all parts of the shadow work we may find ourselves dealing with at this time.
Yes the world is going through a cleansing of a sort, I cannot begin to attempt to fix it. I can only talk for myself and what I can do.
As Gandhi so eloquently said: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Five Rhythms and the Fire of Love
This month I went to an amazing 5 rhythms workshop with spiritual dancer and teacher Amara Pagano (see link for more about her work) called Fire of Love held at Earth Dance in Massachusetts. For 5 days we delved into the relationship of our heart and our parents. For me it was transformational. I experienced many facets of how I relate with people.
Here was my dance. Open. Shut. Come close. Hide. Step out. Step in. Honor self, honor mom, honor dad, honor my growth. Honor my lineage. Let go. Release. Love.
This is how I can do my part in shifting the consciousness of the world. Be present and be genuine. Dance, create and be curious. And always remember to embrace the joy in my life.
With much gratitude for all the support of my friends, family and teachers, I wish you love and an open heart. Greer
