Many of us utilize tools and rituals to maintain a connection with the spirit world within us, while staying grounded to the world around us. There are genius systems that have been channeled around the world that allow us to tap into this universal knowledge, in a way that makes sense to us. Tools like astrology, crystals, and Tarot, gives us the ability to see the patterns of the matrix. They give us clarity, so that we can navigate through life with a sense of purpose and sovereignty.
Divination is the process or ritual to predict, gain insight or understanding around a certain subject. This ritual gives us the ability to touch or be inspired by spirit. One system of divination that has gained popularity lately is Numerology.
Are there certain numbers or number sequences that have always stood out to you? Although you may not be able to pinpoint it, certain numbers carry their own significance. They communicate something to us that is deeper than our surface level understanding of numbers. Numerology is based on the belief that different numbers carry specific personalities and energies. When we examine the energetic patterns these numbers hold, we are able to bare witness to the synchronicities all around us.
Much like astrology gives us personality and situational insights based on where the stars are at, numerology does this with simple equations that break down the numerical patterns that lie in everything. This system shares wisdom from the metaphysical realm, in a tangible way. While it uses your birth time to give you your life path number, you can also break down the numerology of almost anything- like your name, business, and relationships.
Everyday has its own numerological significance. Certain days, however, hold an immensely powerful capacity to propel you in different directions. These synchronistic days create portals for us to dive into, so that we can accelerate our growth and healing. One of these so called “portal days” is November 11th, or 11/11.
Many of us have the ritual of singing or making a wish when the clock strikes 11:11 because of our innate attraction to the energy this number holds. When the actual day falls on 11/11, this number has that much more magnitude. 11 is considered a “master number” along with 22 and 33. The increased pressure given by these numbers whether it’s in your life path or on a certain day, means you may literally feel a strain on your system.
This strain is telling you that it’s time to make a change. You can choose to use this energy to move your creative and healing force through and out of you in a constructive manner, or allow it to invert. This inversion of energy is what creates dissonance, and dis-ease within our beings. It gives rise to anxiety, depression, and general confusion.
11/11 can be used as a sort of new year. It allows you to examine what habits or thought forms have been holding you back, and how you can initiate a new beginning. The number 11 itself looks like a doorway. This imagery shows the significance of your ability to step into a new sense of self.
So how do you use this sacred day move your energy outwards? To use the energy of creation to manifest what you are trying to cultivate in your world? You can do this by honoring it in a way that is meaningful to you.
Create a ritual by setting the space. Build an altar. Or adorn one you may have with images and pieces that represent your inspirations, and gifts you have to offer the world. Use the transformative power of fire to cleanse the air with candles, incense, or sacred herbs. Make a cozy nest for you to nuzzle into. Take some grounding breaths to settle into your body before asking yourself…
- What spiritual gift of mine is trying to come through, and into the world?
- How am I blocking this gift?
- What sort of thoughts and actions are aligned with my gifts?
- What steps can I take to allow these gifts to come through?
Have your journal ready to record breakthroughs and insights. This ritual of reflection is often enough to give us a gentle shove in a new direction.
Now is the time to tap into your creativity in a deeper way than you ever have. Examine the currents of your creative force, how you can work with it in a way that feels natural to you. When used wisely, this force can propel you forward into a whole other level of being. Projects come together seamlessly, ideas pour through you, and you find you have more energy than ever before.
It’s time to drop the excuses, and get real with yourself. What exactly are you here for? You are the conduit for a very specific gift on this planet, and it is your divine mission to let move through you. So step through the door of 11, and watch as the magic unfolds.
