What a year 2020 has been and we’re only getting started. By now you are likely wondering when this is all going to end and how long it is going to take until we turn the page to 2021 with the hopes of a fresh start. Some of you may have also received reposts or screenshots of publications where people have predicted the world events of 2020 well before they took place. Well that is because there is a science behind it, and I am here to share that science with you. My hope in doing so is to shed light on the message we are being asked to learn and what lies ahead, so that we can all raise our spirits and come out of this together and stronger than ever before because of it! What is this science and how can it be explained you ask? The answer is numerology!
What is Numerology?
Everything in the universe is made up of components of some form or another. Numerology is the universal language of numbers. Numbers can tell us a great deal about ourselves, and the world we live in, when broken down into their most basic form. For example the year 2020 can be broken down by adding the single forms of the numbers that make it up (2 + 0 + 2 + 0 for a total of 4). This means that 2020 is represented by the number 4. Each number has a unique vibrational energy and meaning. Let’s dive into what that means.
What does the number 4 represent in numerology?
The number 4 tends to symbolize the same key themes across belief systems in both spirituality and numerology. 4 is the number of work and represents order, discipline, determination, structure, and most importantly laying solid foundations built to last the sands of time. There is an overwhelming message to prioritize our need for safety and security more diligently than we ever have before. We are all being asked to start planning better for our future. We are being asked to plan better financially as individuals and sustainably as a whole. To pause, revisit, revise, reconstruct and reset our way of living to create a better world.
What does this mean for us?
How can we do this? We can start by not taking what we have for granted. We live in a material world where we always think we need the next best thing and often live outside our means. We now have the opportunity to take a step back and assess what is truly necessary and essential to life. What is really important to us? What do we actually use when we are on lockdown and no one else is around to impress? Are there material things we can reduce and live without, repurpose, or reuse. Are there things we can donate to someone else who might need it more? How can we truly be of service to ourselves, others, and the planet? Reach out to see what others are doing and how you can help, or how they might be able to help you. Let’s all open our minds, hands, and hearts to one another.
It will also be important to take time for self care this year, especially over the spring and summer months as we navigate our new normal. Go for walks, meditate, read, listen to music, learn a new skill like baking or painting, call or Facetime with loved ones. Talk regularly to build even stronger connections than before. The reason I suggest this is because we will be tested and these outlets will help us center ourselves so that we can remain in a good head space as the year 4 may make us doubt our abilities, test our limits, and push us outside of our comfort zones. However, the duality to this is that it will also teach us that we are capable of more than we give ourselves credit for, stronger than we ever imagined, and that we do have the ability to adapt and overcome any hurdle no matter the difficulty. We are resilient human beings and we can do this!
This year may be slower in terms of progress and will not feel like one of great triumph, but understand this is something that we need to experience. Again this year is not about immediate gratification. This year is about slowing down taking the time to ensure a solid foundation for many years to come so that there are no cracks or bumps in the road as there were before. This is our do-over and our chance to do things right without skipping steps or feeling rushed. Be patient and know that there is a silver lining and rewarding future ahead. Develop a clear plan of what you want your future to look like, what you need to do to make it happen, and start the ground work. Define your mission so that you know your purpose, have something to work towards, and can later look back at with pride.
Remember that good things take time and the day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.
