1’s and 3’s and “5”: A Little Numerology & Angel Numbers

I’m very interested in Numerology.  I’ve just always been fascinated by numbers and have been intuitively drawn to them. 

Since we’re in the winter season at the warehouse, I’ve had some downtime and have started processing texts again.  My latest numerology excitement is discovering which table number I’m going to be placed at for the day. Because workers are moved back and forth from shipping and processing — depending on the orders for the day — I’m sometimes bumped from table to table.  A new morning can bring a new number. 

When I first started, I was on number “18”, (1+8) numerology number “9”.  This was exciting to me.  Endings!  I hoped it was an ending to some of the negative emotions I’d been having and a chance for exciting new experiences.  The next day someone had taken my table, and I was now on “26”.  “8”?  I didn’t know much about 8. (In fact, I’m looking it up right now. . .) 


The 8 balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The spiritual side of the 8 is practical, realistic and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations. On the material plane, it is focused on results, often in the form of money, yet does not care much about money for the sake of money. It is not greedy, it sees money as a tool, not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks.

That’s actually pretty neat and grounded.

When I was given a chance to choose a table one day, I spent a few minutes perusing the empty tables.  I finally settled on “19”, a “1”, feeling I was ready for new beginnings.

But NOW I’m at table 23, and ironically enough, it looks like this is where I am to stay.  (Ironic because 23 is a “5”, the number of change.)  This is a good place to be.  I am changing.  A lot.  Sometimes I get frustrated because I don’t feel like I’m changing enough or fast enough, but I am changing, and it’s a good thing.  I’m excited about getting closer and closer to my desire for inner peace and my ideal of unconditional love.

That brings me to my latest repeating number combination: double “1”s and double “3”s.  I didn’t think much of it at first, but it kept popping up.  Over and over again.  (Mostly on my odometer. And I’d always happen to look at it at that exact sequence.)

Here is what I found from Joanne Sacred Scribes Angel Numbers:

The combination of 1’s and 3’s asks you to surrender your goals and desires to spirit, and ask for guidance in regards to what is to manifest in your life. The Universe is aware of where you are at in your life, and want to help and assist you along your path.

Wow!  That’s exactly where I was yesterday — I got so fed up with my emotional turmoil and confused thoughts that I said: “Ok!  I surrender!  I surrender, God! (Goddess/angels/whoever!)  Guide me.”

This site also introduced to the “Ascended Masters” for the first time. (And if anyone knows anything about this, please share!) 

This is the rest of the post:

1’s and 3’s indicates that the Ascended Masters are working with you on your thought processes to enable you to make the highest and wisest choices. They are sending you positive energy to keep you from feeling discouraged. They are also sending encouragement to stay focused on the true goals of your soul, so that you are able to succeed in your life purpose and in life in general.

Additionally, the Ascended Masters may be offering you advice, guidance and suggestions on your life’s purpose if you are questioning your current pathway. If you are unsure of your next move or what action to take, specifically ask the Ascended Masters for their assistance.

Who were these “Ascended Masters”?  They sounded intriguing.  Back to Google and good ‘ol Wikipedia!:

In the Ascended Master Teachings,  Ascended Masters are believed to be spiritually enlightened  beings who in past incarnations were ordinary humans, but who have undergone a series of spiritual transformations originally called initiations.

An “Ascended Master” is a human being who has regained full union with his “Mighty I AM Presence.” When a human being has regained full union with his “Mighty I AM Presence,” that state of full union is referred to as “Ascension.”

Amazing!  This will have to be explored further.  Click here to explore a list of the Ascended Masters for yourself.

And that’s my fun with numbers for the day.  What number sequences are you noticing in your life?

666 Again

ID-100192645 ID-100192645ID-100192645I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned the 66 or 666 number combination before. It popped up a lot in my life last year.  I saw it earlier this year when I applied to be an extra in Transformers 4.  (Still holding out for something good, there!)  But today it hit me with a vengeance, so I thought it worth exploring again.  It hit me most this morning, first in the license plate on the merging car in front of me, and soon after as I glanced at my odometer —  106662, soon to be 106666.  Then later it popped out at me again at the warehouse on the ISBN ending in 666.

I knew this combination; I had a recollection that it had something to do with money/money worries (Don’t worry!)  and could have left it at that.   But since it hit me pretty significantly, I figured I’d better pay more attention.  This is what Joanne Sacred Scribes says about 666:

Angel Number 666 suggests that you may be focusing on the material and monetary world, rather than your personal spirituality and family life.  Your angels ask that you raise your vibration and maintain a positive attitude and mind-set in regards to all aspects of your life to ensure that all goes according to Divine plan.  Trust that improvements are on the way into your life.

The repeating number 666 prompts you to focus upon your inner spirituality and Divine life purpose and soul mission, rather than on earthly, material concerns.  Give any fears of loss or lack to the angels to heal and transmute, and be open to receiving and accepting help and assistance from your angels and other people in your life.  All you need to do is ask.

Yes, this has been a recurring theme in my life in the past year or so.  My angels keep telling me that I am worrying too much, especially about financial concerns, and I know am.  I think about money obsessively, and not in the good abundant way, more of in the oh-my- goodness-will-we- make-it?” way.  And I’m beginning to realize the angels are right.  I could use a good chill pill. And maybe some affirmations:

“I have abundance.”  “I have all I could ever need and want — and then some — and more is coming my way”!  “I am truly blessed in so many ways.”

It’s funny — I’ve been wanting to use my angel cards again to get in touch with my spiritual friends.  I’ve been thinking about how I miss their wisdom, love, and guidance.   In the meantime, I think they got tired of waiting — they brought the message straight to me!

1818, 918, Great Blue Heron

The universe is sending encouragement.  I’m doing my best to pay attention.

My spirit guides play with me a bit, flashing 18:18 on my wacky car clock and then returning to the normal time a minute later.  9:18 comes up repeatedly. I know I’ve seen it many times before. . .  Then, as I drive home today a blue heron flies perpendicular over my car.  Closer this time than usual.  And then turns and follows me, flying parallel for a few minutes, trailing behind me.

1818 from Joanne Sacred Scribes Angel Numbers:

“The message of the 1 and 8 combination is telling you that you are nearing the end of a significant phase of your life. Powerful changes and opportunities abound and you are in a position where you are able to command your desires. If there is some part of your life that is not flowing as you’d like, know that it will soon be healed or replaced with better things. The angels ask that you surrender and release those parts of your life that are not working out, as your thoughts and wishes for a better life/lifestyle are coming your way in the near future.

The numbers 1 and 8 ask you to think only thoughts of positive abundance and prosperity. Your thoughts are manifesting very quickly at the moment and as both 1 and 8 have very powerful vibrations you are asked to ensure that your mindset and thoughts are on the highest level and focused upon your true desires.”

918 is very similar, but this jumped out this time when I read Joanne Sacred Scribes Angel Numbers again:

“The repeating Angel Number 918 is also an encouragement to begin a successful spiritually-based practice and/or career.”

And for insight to the beautiful, majestic heron, I turned again to Avia’s wonderful site.  Her description of the heron blew me away. How lucky I am to have the heron in my life!  This part particularly struck me today:

“The most outstanding feature about the heron, to me, is its environmental presence. The heron is at home in three elements: Water, Earth and Air. This speaks to me of diversity. Those with the heron as a guide or totem can relate to this. These people are either very skilled in a myriad of different elements, or they are branching out in various skills, and the heron is offering confidence in the process.

Comfort in multiple elements is also symbolic of easy transitions. If you find yourself in liminal spaces, that is, if you find yourself ‘in-between’ phases, places or people in your life, the heron can give guidance on how to easily move through those ‘in-between’ moments of your life.

Meaning of the heron deals with being comfortable in spaces that are neither here, nor there. It prefers hunting at twilight, which is a symbolic and magical time of ‘in-between’. The heron will have one foot on land, and one foot in the water – this action has been recognized by ancient cultures as a sign of liminality – of crossing into the a space that is neither here, nor there.

All this talk about being in the space ‘in-between’ illustrates a remarkable lesson. We are not our environment. We are not even our bodies. And the ‘in-between’ represents a space suspended – without time or place. It’s what Eckhart Tolle might refer to as the “NOW” . . .”

Yes, that is me!  I’m a woman in transition, struggling to live in the “now.” I’m excited about the reference to Tolle — one of my favorite spiritual gurus — and I’m also struck by the quote “We are not even our bodies” — that is part of my daily Metaphysics reading for the week!

Thank you, spiritual guides/angels for your continuous support on my life journey.

Smorgasbord: “My poor baby!” x 2; More Angel Numbers; Raw Emotions; Animal Visits; and Pupil Jealousy?

“My Poor Baby!” x 2

  • #1: I hurt one of my babies today.  I was clipping Link’s claw with the clippers, and I must have been really careless because I cut into his paw. 😦  He cried out in pain, but he’s shown no other sign of pain since; he’s been walking fine and no complaints.  But he was bleeding for a while, and I freaked out for quite a bit.  Of course it was an accident, but I felt like a terrible Mom, and I didn’t know what to do.  I knew what I would do if it were me, so I got some tissue, and held it to his paw.  Then I actually put a band-aid over it, but he didn’t like that too much and took care of it pretty quickly.  Then I just monitored him, feeling sorry for him and awful that I had been the one to do such a thing.  I realized that cats get cuts sometimes from the silly things they do, and animals get injured out in the wild, and they make do, so this was not the end of the world.  Since he wasn’t bleeding profusely, he’d survive.  But I still feel like I need to make it up to him somehow (as I presently let him continue sitting on my lap, even though I desperately want to get up for some water and some chocolate).
  • #2: My other baby is my car, and I guess I’m responsible for part of its pain, too.  But mostly it’s just old and quirky.  When I start up my baby, the “CHG OIL” light goes on and my digital clock creates its own new language.  When I turn left, my turn signal blinks frenetically, signaling that my brake light is out AGAIN or my electrical system is still a bit wacko.  And then there’s the rapping noise of some strappy, window-related thing that I don’t even hear anymore because I somehow willed it not to be there anymore. . .  And I know it’s time to take the girl in.  I’m usually pretty good about taking her in every 3-4 months.  This time I’m up to 5, but part of that is because I just passed the 100,000 mile mark (Yay!) which means I’m due for a bit of a maintenance overhaul (Not so yay :-().  But I knew this was coming, and I already have a maintenance appointment scheduled for Friday.  Hopefully nothing else will go wrong with my car before then.  ::Foreshadowing alert::  No, really. Everything will be fine.

More Angel Numbers

So, I’ve heard that our angels/spirit guides like it when you ask them for help.  So, I’VE BEEN ASKING.  But I realize that a) I may not be noticing the signs or b) I may be noticing the signs, but I may be in denial.  Anyway, here are 2 other number combinations that I realized have popped up within the last year:

  • 49.  It applies to the $49,000 chunk of part of my mortgage debt, and it struck me because my dad mentioned that his mortgage had also been $49,000. So, I thought I’d take a peek. According to Joanne Sacred Scribes:

“49 is a message from your angels that a project or cycle is ending and you are asked to look to your achievements and successes. Take the lessons from the experiences and use them to your future advantage.  Finish off anything left undone.  Repeating Angel Number 49 is a message that your angels are with you as you step through a new door of opportunity.  As with all endings, it is the beginning of something new and as one door closes, another opens. Your angels ask that you focus on your goals, aspirations and life purpose, and remember to ask your angels for assistance along the way.”  The term “lightworking” also popped up with the number combination.

  • 27. I was timing my student on some touch multiplication facts, and she got 3 back-t0-back 27’s (seconds), which — is just unlikely.  So, here’s what Joanne Sacred Scribes has for 27:

“Angel Number 27 is a message from your angels that new information or news of a positive nature is on its’ way, so listen to your intuition and heed its guidance for your highest good.  Angel Number 27 is a message to believe in yourself, your intuitive messages and your inner-promptings.  You have been receiving messages about your divine life purpose, and your angels encourage you to follow the guidance and directions accordingly.  Trust that your angels support you in your spiritual endeavors.”

So, I guess I’ve gotta keep the faith.  It’s tough for a worry-wart like me, but I’m listening, angels!  Please keep trying to guide me!

Raw Emotions

I’ve decided that I have been put on this Earth to deal with intense emotions.  I cannot believe how completely blissful I can feel during one part of the day, and how absolutely terrified or angry I can feel later that same day.  Most of today I was nervous about my sessions with my tutoring students — especially my ACT tutoring session — and I was worried about my pending performance at the school talent show.  (I sang “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack.)  The talent show went just fine, the ACT session was pretty good — I’m still stressing about it a bit — and life has gone on.  I feel that I’m making this job/life transition so that I can be more relaxed and get back in touch with my true self and my spiritual guides — but I’m afraid that I’ll find something that will be just as stressful or just as awkward a fit as what I have now.  I mean, what if it’s just me?

Animal Visits

I like to notice special things — they may seem like random coincidences to most other people — like the number combinations and animal sightings.  I think it’s a little odd that one morning I had a rabbit run out in front of my car, and a minute later, a crow landed in front of my car.  I looked up both of those animals, and the impression I got was that I was supposed to be jumping on some opportunity.  I have no idea what that opportunity was, so I hope I took it!  And today it was spiders.  The second one was not a big deal.  It was a little black spider walking across the floor of the gym in front of the bleachers where I sat.  But it was the second spider I’d seen in one hour.  The first spider was much more interesting.  It was a medium-sized/largish green spider that camouflaged perfectly with our Shaklee water pitcher.  I was surprised because 1) I’d never seen a spider in the kitchen before.  2) It happened to be the exact same green as the water pitcher.  3) It happened to be on the water pitcher as I was filling it up!  (I’m just pleased I had enough composure to quickly place it on the counter, rather than drop the poor pitcher again — I have some sort of problem involving dropping water pitchers: I’ve already broken 2!I had some trouble researching and figuring out what the spider could be trying to tell me, but I found a LOT of green spider images on Google.

Pupil Jealousy?

Yes, I am jealous of my students.  Because what I’m trying so hard to find, comes so naturally to them — creativity.  One of my students is an amazingly creative writer.  I don’t think he realizes how ingenuous his ideas are.  I want to write like that!  And another makes magic with his highlighter art.  Seriously.  Where do those images come from?  Why can’t I get myself to draw like that? This year I’ve become aware of how truly, and frighteningly powerful my critical side is, and it’s starting to make me mad.  I’ve even started talking to it: You are holding me back.  Do you know what you are doing?  Why?  Why are you doing this to me?!  I’m not sure this one-way conversation is getting me anywhere, but at least I’m becoming more aware of it.  Somehow I’ve got to get myself to play more.  I need to unlearn what “life” has taught me and become a child again.  Sigh.  I wish there was an easy step-by-step program for that one. . .

And. . . that’s it for today!  I’m hoping Brian will get home soon so that we can watch Castle, my new watch-while-I-grade TV series.  We just started season 1, and I can’t believe how quickly I got addicted.  But really, it has Nathan Fillion from Firefly in it.  Of course I like it! Oh, dang it.  I over boiled the mushroom ravioli, and there are now mushroom bits everywhere.  Gotta go.

Angel Communication

I have a couple of number combinations that have frequently popped up for me in the last year/few years.  And I believe it’s the universe’s way of communicating with me.  Some time ago my numbers were “911”.  Lately they’ve been “66” or “666”.  Since I’ve been looking into the meaning of numbers lately, I decided to do a little research on those particular combinations.  This is what I found from Joanne Scared Scribes on “Angel Numbers”:

On 911:

“The number 911 carries the vibrations of the numbers 9, 1 and the Master Number 11.  [That’s me, 11!] Number 9 resonates with the attributes of Universal Spiritual Laws, compassion, benevolence and generosity, living life as a positive example, leadership, service to humanity and lightworking. [Me, again!]  Number 9 also relates to endings and conclusions.  Number 1 resonates with self-reliance, new beginnings and progress, activity and energy, inspiration, attainment and fulfilment.  The double 1 resonates with the Karmic Master Number 11, which brings its attributes of illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, symbols, alternate consciousness, mysticism, catalyst, sensitivity, enthusiasm, creative/creativity. This makes the number 911 a powerfully spiritual vibration.”

“The Angel Number 911 indicates that the angels are telling you that a new door has opened up for you as a product of your positive thoughts, intentions and actions.  Make the most of this opportunity and walk forward with confidence and surety, knowing that you are fulfilling your karmic destiny.”

On 66 and 666:

“The repeating Angel Number 66 is a message to trust the Universe and your angels with supporting and assisting you in achieving and manifesting your desires in regards to your home, family, social and personal life. Repeating 66 tells you to keep your thoughts and feelings focused on achieving your goals, and you will attain your desires with the help and guidance from your angels.”

“The repeating number sequence 666 tells us that it is time to focus on your personal spirituality in order to balance and heal any issues in your life.  Tell the angels about any fears you may have concerning your material supply or lack thereof.  They are listening and wanting to help you feel prosperous and abundant.  Angel Number 666 asks you to be open to receiving help, love and support from both humans and the angels as it is there for the offing. You need to be receptive in order to receive and accept the help you need. ”

“The Angel Number 666 may also be indicating that your thoughts are out of balance at this time and you are asked to look to all aspects of your life making sure that all is as you feel it should be.  Look to service and humanitarian aspects including volunteering your time, donating money to charity, doing conscious random acts of kindness and/or being of service to those in need in some way. The angels and Universe will reward you accordingly and your needs will always be met.” [This is all exactly what I need to hear!]

Have you noticed any special number combinations popping up in your life?  If you have, search your own angel numbers and please share!

“Colorful Dices” courtesy of posterize/

I know that I’ve mentioned this before: I’m into numbers.  That doesn’t just mean that I like math — because I do — but I also like quirky things with numbers.  I like palindromes and repeated numbers and ascending and descending numbers.  I look for them on digital clocks, on marquees, and on odometers.  I think that’s why my spiritual guides sometimes choose that method of communication.

I don’t know what the numbers mean.  I think they could mean a number of things: “Hello!  Just reminding you I’m/we’re here!”, or “Things are going to be ok,” or it’s just a positive sign in general.  Maybe someday I’ll actually get to meet my spiritual guides, if not here, then on the other side.

But I bring this up now because I’ve been seeing my latest number sign a few times: 666  and 66 (but any number with back-to-back “6”s, grabs my attention).  Either my spiritual guides have a good sense of humor, or they know that I will only pay attention to number combinations that stick out.  I think maybe both.  Since this summer, this has been my number sign.  Before that it was “911”.   (If you’re interested in the story connected with that one, let me know.)

Today I saw that I have “66” followers on WordPress.  Last week I got a new student, and the page number “666” was at the top of his notes.  I think the first example is a reminder that my guides are around and to keep alert, but it could also be encouragement in my writing. I think the second example is encouragement with this new student.  I’ve been taking on a lot of new students lately, and sometimes I get nervous, not knowing what to expect with the student and worrying about not being prepared for the content.   I felt calm and reassured when I spotted those numbers at the top of his page.

This morning I told my spiritual guides that I was going to listen and pay attention more.  So, here I am doing it officially in writing.  What’s your message, my friends?  I’m ready!

Signs and Symbols

Still. . . the birds. . .

Birds are flying over all the time.  And now I’m dreaming about birds.  Two nights ago I faced a large red bird with a blue sheen.  I was afraid to face it, thinking it might poke my eyes out or something, but I kept forcing myself to face it, wanting to know what the bird had to say.  In last night’s dream, birds were flying overhead, and one was a flamingo.  I remember thinking about how gangly it looked flying above me, like a long, gawky chicken.

I believe I’m still trying to be contacted, to be given a message, even if it’s just assurance.

And then today I realized I was getting number symbols again.  I have a great interest in numbers.  A fascination.  I’m always looking at my odometer, hoping to catch a palindrome, and I often do.  I also have a particular interest in the combination 9-11 because of an interesting  story I had with that number combination years ago.  I also like 12:34.

This new combination started with “666”.  Yes, creepy. But then, so is 9-11, and that one turned out ok.  At first I thought I was being given a warning.  But thinking on it, I think it’s just another way the universe is trying to get my attention.  Yesterday I went out for a casual retirement dinner, and my bill for my meal was $16.66.  Of course, the last part caught my eye.  What are the odds of that?  At least the one was in front, though.  So, I just stayed extra alert on the drive from the restaurant.  Then, today, I filled up my gas tank, and what was the total number of gallons?  11.666.  I know it’s not the exact same number — bBut it’s got the 1.  It’s got the 666.  And WHAT are the odds that I have those same numbers in 2 days?

Something’s going on.

I’ve been having some good talks with some of my colleagues lately.  They’ve talked about changes in their lives and the coincidental circumstances that led to new opportunities.  I find myself jealous of their good fortune.  But I realize that their blessing is not mine.  Their situations are not what I really want.  So, I think that is why the universe is not providing it for me.

This is scary in itself — because I do not know what I want!  I think I know what I want.  And I am pretty sure of what I don’t want. . .

And for the here and now I mostly want to know that everything is going to be ok.  Many people have told me that I will be and have applauded my risks.  Of course, a few others are skeptical and second-guess me.

I am willing to suffer for a while if I know it will lead to my eventual happiness.  I am ready to run the extra mile.  I just have to know what to believe in.  And I have to believe in myself.
