Ask Greer: I’ve been trying to find a specific meaning to the repeating number patterns of 4 in my life and especially in my artwork. If you could shed any light on this I would be very appreciative.—Liz
Greer: Fascinating topic, Liz. As an artist, I am especially intrigued to witness repeating number patterns of 4 in art. Fours are all about building— putting things together. It is the square, the home, logic, everything having its place in the cosmic realm. Four is the earth and the vibration of a grounding force in all of us.
The Sacred Number 4
In the Lakota tradition, the number 4 is considered a sacred number. For example, we can experience the four vibration in everything in nature (root, stem, leaves and fruit), the four directions, four-legged animals, and the four seasons (Summer, Winter, Fall and Spring) Watch U-Tube “The Sacred Number 4“.
When you see the same number everywhere— in your art, on the clock, license plates, etc, pay attention and journal about it. It may be a message for you. I have had countless questions and comments about this phenomenon. Read this post and all the comments for more about this. “I Keep Seeing The Same Numbers Everywhere”.
Repeating Number Patterns: A Hidden Code of Recalibration?
There is another piece about seeing the same numbers everywhere that I have been pondering. Could it be that when a consistent number appears in an art vision or the clock or after you say something profound, perhaps it is a personal code of recalibration for you. Perhaps the connection to that code of numbers is shifting and expanding your mind, cells and DNA in some important way. A message to pay attention, yes. But maybe even more. I know when I see 11s or 33s or 45s, I feel a true connection to my higher power.
I invite all of you to connect to “your numbers”, explore all the possibilities through meditation, writing or art. I suspect that this is the way inventors, physicists and philosophers come up with their brilliant theories.* Please send me comments, art and insights in your exploration. I am so intrigued!
Liz, does this ring true for you? Please tell me more and send your paintings. I would love to post them on my site and any other insights you may have.

Pythagoras and Music
*Did you know that Pythagoras (the father of the numerology methodology that I practice) worked with energy patterns in his theories of music and numbers?
“One day while meditating upon the problem of harmony, Pythagoras chanced to pass a brazier’s shop where workmen were pounding out a piece of metal upon an anvil. By noting the variances in pitch between the sounds made by large hammers and those made by smaller implements, and carefully estimating the harmonies and discords resulting from combinations of these sounds, he gained his first clue to the musical intervals of the diatonic scale.” —www.sacred-texts.com Read more on this.
