A retrovirus is a type of virus that inserts a copy of its RNA genome into the DNA of a host cell that it invades, thus changing the genome of that cell. Once inside the host cell’s cytoplasm, the virus uses its own reverse transcriptase enzyme to produce DNA from its RNA genome, the reverse of the usual pattern, thus retro.
During our long evolutionary path, we have accumulated a wealth of wisdom, and have made many positive choices that benefit us in the future.
We have also made mistakes, and have sometimes abused the gifts we have been given. To rectify such errors, we may take on an additional burden in order to learn a particular lesson that we failed to learn previously. In numerology, this burden is called a Karmic Debt.
Those with the 13 Karmic Debt will work very hard to accomplish any task. Obstacles stand in their way, and must be overcome time and again. One may often feel burdened and frustrated by the seeming futility of one’s efforts there may be a desire to surrender to the difficulties and simply give up on the goal, believing it was impossible to attain in the first place.
Some with the 13 Karmic Debt fall to laziness and negativity. But efforts are not futile, and success is well within reach. One simply must work hard, and persevere in order to reach the goal. Many highly successful people in all walks of life, including business, art, and sports, have a 13 Karmic Debt.
The key to succeeding wit the 13 is focus. Very often, people with the 13 Karmic Debt do not concentrate or direct their energies in one specific direction, or on a single task, but scatter their energies over many projects and jobs, none of which amount to very much.
A temptation with the 13 is to take shortcuts. Too often, that easy success doesn’t come, causing regret and the desire to give up. The result is a poor self-image, and the belief that one is incapable of amounting to much.
In order to focus, you must maintain order in your life. Order is essential to success. You must maintain a schedule, keep appointments, and follow through. Keep your environment neat and under control, and never procrastinate. If you sustain a steady and consistent effort, you will realize much reward.
The 14 Karmic Debt arises from previous lifetimes during which human freedom has been abused. Those with a 14 Karmic Debt are forced to adapt to ever-changing circumstances and unexpected occurrences.
There is an acute danger of falling victim to abuse of drugs, alcohol, and overindulgence in sensual pleasures, such as food and sex. You must put the reins on yourself. Modesty in all affairs is crucial to overcoming this Karmic Debt.
Also important is the need to maintain order in life, and to establish one’s own emotional stability. you must also be willing to adapt to the unexpected occurrences of life, all the while maintaining your focus on your goals and dreams.
Flexibility and adaptability are at the very core of this struggle.
Orderliness in one’s immediate environment is crucial to maintaining clarity and focus. Mental and emotional stability must be attained in order to avoid being thrown about by the changing fortunes in the external environment.
But the key to the 14 Karmic Debt is commitment. Life will resemble a roller coaster ride, but it will always travel in the right direction if one’s heart is set on what is true and good. Set yourself a high goal, maintain order wherever possible in your life, avoid excessive sensory indulgence, and maintain faith. Above all, do not give up on your dreams and goals.
Those with the 14 Karmic Debt will experience life to the fullest, and as long as they maintain a high dream, they will achieve success and great spiritual development.
The 16 Karmic Debt – wherever it shows up on the chart – means destruction of the old and birth of the new. The 16 is about the fall of the ego, and all that it has built for itself. It is a watershed, a cleansing. All that has been constructed, and all that serves to separate the person from the source of life is destroyed.
Through the 16, reunion with the great spirit is accomplished.
This can be a painful process, because it usually comes after much ego inflation. This results in a struggle between the ego and the divine will. Life presents challenges to your grand plans, which can be resented and struggled against. It is a lost battle, and you will likely feel humbled in the face of the collapse that follows.
This humility is the key to later success, however, because you will learn to follow the intimations of a higher reality. In the destruction of the old, a spiritual rebirth takes place with an entirely new awareness. This rebirth affects every area of your life. It is a life much the better for the fall.
Those with the 16 Karmic Debt must be careful of egotism. Very often, those with the 16 use their highly intuitive and refined intellect to look down upon others, and view the rest of the world as inferior. This causes acute alienation and loneliness.
In addition, it invites retribution, for the egotist is humbled more harshly than any other.
When the 16 is in one of the core numbers, this process of destruction and rebirth is a continual cycle that actually serves to bring you into higher consciousness and closer union with the source of life.
The 16 Karmic Debt can be a path of progress and great spiritual growth if it is looked at properly. One develops great faith by placing one’s life in the hands of God. Through such faith, gratitude and peace are firmly established.
A person with the 19 Karmic Debt will learn independence and the proper use of power. You will be forced to stand up for yourself, and often be left to stand alone. Difficulties will be faced and overcome through personal struggle.
One of the central lessons for people with the 19 Karmic Debt is that you stubbornly resist help. Much of your independence is self-imposed; you simply don’t want to listen to others, or to accept the help or advice of others.
The 19 Karmic Debt can become a self imposed prison if you do not open up to the reality of interdependence, and the mutual need for love.
The most important lesson for the 19 Karmic Debt is: While you seek to stand on your own feet, you are still a human being, deeply connected with others and in need of the support, assistance, and human understanding that all people need.
Those with the 19 Karmic Debt will learn the hard way that “no man is an island,” and that we are, indeed, “all bits of the main!”
Among the nine single-digit numbers, the 1 holds a special place in numerology.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 1: THE PRIMAL FORCE
From a spiritual perspective, the 1 is the number of creation – the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. Some say once you truly understand the place and function of this elemental number, enlightenment will be yours.
This statement doesn’t apply to a Numerologist’s perspective alone, but perhaps it’s a good place to start since the personality of the number 1 aligns nicely with its elevated spiritual symbolism.
The 1 is a doer, a powerful force that produces results.
The 1 is aggressive – a necessary trait for creating, and not allowing anything to limit its potential. The 1 is the spearhead, always in the forefront directing and leading others.
The shape of this number reflects its meaning; the 1 walks upright with pride and purpose – strong, determined, and unwavering with a specific goal in mind. The 1 is capable of turning ideas into reality – pushing obstacles aside or simply drilling right through them.
The 1 tends to have a simple, straightforward view of life, heedless of its many complexities.
An individual with the dynamic 1 trusts their ability to separate right from wrong, doesn’t waste time on abstract ideas, and rarely follows a path that isn’t in line with their result-oriented goal. The 1 is no preacher, no philosopher, spiritual explorer, nor dreamer – and certainly not an idealist. They are pragmatic, ruthless conquerors, and warriors extraordinaire. The 1 is individualistic and independent to a fault. They will attempt to force their viewpoint on you but have no desire to hear yours.
The 1 can be confrontational, jealous, and exceedingly stubborn, but also courageous and willing to try anything new (with promise) even at great risk. They have a sense of honor and responsibility that demands respect and are the first to defend injustice and hypocrisy.
Befriend a 1 and you have a friend for life.
Fortunately, the 1 has a great capacity for humor, often self-depreciating, so you can poke fun at your friend and not worry about hurt feelings. But don’t cater to them to win love or friendship or you will lose their respect. Stand up to a 1 and you may lose the fight, but you’ll gain admiration. Working for a 1 you will be pushed to the limit, abused at all hours, and incapable of living up to unreasonable expectations. But you will also become the best you can be.
When in trouble, you want a friend with a strong 1 on your side, and you won’t find a braver partner or a more dedicated protector. But, if the 1 is your enemy, you could be crushed without mercy. And be forewarned, the number 1 is the most difficult of all lovers, demanding, jealous, confrontational, and impatient.
If you have a 1 in your core numbers, your happiness and sense of satisfaction will come from your work more than any other source.
Considered the most cooperative of the 9 numbers, the 2 is often the most underestimated.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 2: THE ALL-KNOWING
Known as the peacemaker, the 2 is almost always gentle, tactful, diplomatic, forgiving, and non-confrontational.
However, the shape of the 2 gives us a clue to its resilience and ability to survive. This symbol, as if bowing in servitude, could easily be perceived as weak and powerless. But when the humble 2 is under attack, even burdened by a crushing weight, its flexible nature allows it to bounce back quickly.
This is in stark contrast to the power and pride of the bold 1, who is unlikely to back down. (The competitive, bold, individualistic nature of the 1 makes it strong, but its rigid posture can shatter under prolonged pressure.)
People in leadership positions – often individuals with a well positioned 1 in their chart – recognize the value of their calm, thoughtful friend. The 2 is often the real power behind the throne.
The 2 understands the underlying motivation driving the people around them.
The ability to understand others helps them navigate divergent opinions and ideas, giving a little here, taking a little there. Many psychotherapists, skilled at reading human nature, have a strong 2 in their chart.
Patient and unassuming, individuals with a prominent Number 2 people don’t always get the recognition they deserve but they tend to hold a special place in the hearts and minds of those who know them.
The number 2 is recognized for its grace, sophistication, style, and taste in art and music. Dancers often carry this number due to its inherent sense of rhythm. In social environments, the 2 is a good conversationalist with a witty, self-depreciating sense of humor (never slapstick or juvenile as they are too sophisticated for that).
Every coin has two sides.
If the Greek god Zeus could be compared to the number 1, his wife (and sister) Hera would represent the number 2. Like Hera, the number 2 can be jealous and mean-spirited when others reach for something they covet.
As gentle and loving as Hera is much of the time, another side of her emerges when she feels mistreated – a side that can be vengeful, cruel, and unrelenting. The number 2 can also be critical and verbally abusive, with bouts of bad temper (for trivial reasons… for extended periods of time).
Normally skilled at negotiation, emotional periods can find the 2 exhibiting illogical reasoning, making verbal arguments feel like slicing water with a knife. Quarrels often stem from the hurt feelings of this overly sensitive number.
As a partner, the number 2 is an invaluable asset.
Ready to defend you at any cost, the loyalty of the 2 is unshakeable. However, this partner can be emotional and demanding, expecting attention (and devotion) in return. In short, the number 2 is a sensual, graceful, loyal partner who can be a bit demanding, but is worth the trouble.
There is another important aspect to the number 2. As the most intuitive of all single-digit numbers, the 2 has keen powers of observation. This faculty helps them recognize the inner needs of people around them, often helping others to understand themselves better. The intuitive 2 is often drawn to the occult – only the double-digit 11 surpasses the 2 in that department.
The Love Child of Zeus and Hera.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 3: THE CREATIVE CHILD
In the previous chapter (on the number 2), I described the unique union between the numbers 1 and 2 as that of the father and mother unit, while revealing the contradictory natures of their personalities. Now, we move on to what could be considered the result of their union: the number 3, an extraordinarily talented child.
The number 3 is like a gifted teenager who is still under the protection of its parents – a bit spoiled, clearly scattered, and perpetually in need of guidance. However, the 3 excels in the creative field.
An individual with 3s in key points of their numerology chart will have a passionate need to express feelings, ideas, and vision. Coupled with an extroverted personality, they are likely to seek a career in art, especially the verbal arts.
Another unique quality of the 3 is the tendency to be “lucky,” or rather, to be in the right place at the right time. This may be connected to their innate sense of rhythm – the 3 seems to be in tune with the cyclical nature of their surroundings.
Their social skills are also excellent.
Charm, wit and a sense of humor help a 3 along their path, and a compelling charisma make them particularly attractive.
Followers are willing to forgive less favorable traits exhibited by 3s, such as their lack of focus and direction, a tendency to procrastinate, an inability to finish projects, and an unwillingness to take responsibility.
There is also a superficial side to the 3 that can be harder to look past – a narcissistic streak, the need to be the center of attention. It’s easy for the optimistic 3 to enjoy day-to-day life as long as all is well, but when challenging issues arise, internal fortitude is often lacking.
Without little focus on deeper aspects, the 3 can succumb to difficulties unless friends and family provide support.
For the 3 to become a balanced, happy person they must learn discipline. Fortunate 3s who exhibit talent early in life (such as gifted dancers and music prodigies) are often placed in environments with just the sort of discipline a 3 needs to protect those talents.
Relationships can be a bit of a challenge for the 3, at least those requiring long-term commitment and loyalty. With plenty of acquaintances (probably more than is healthy), when true depth and intimacy enter the picture, the 3 may turn tail and run.
The 3 can have a jealous streak too, causing conflicts when those it has rejected move on in search of more meaningful bonds.
Jealousy stems from the 3 recognizing it has been skimming the surface of life since birth. As a result, they feel insecure, thinking others know things that have escaped them.
But, once a 3 finds the motivation to delve deeply into the realities of life (something that may only happen when confronted), its happy facade has the potential to be replaced by the serenity true wisdom brings. Such a “transformed” 3 is a thing to behold.
No one is represented by just one number but is a mixture of several if not all the numbers in their chart. Those who are blessed with a heavy dose of 3s in their numerology chart tend to have an easier time being happy, optimistic, and playful.
However, this kind of “joie de vivre” can leave those same people unprepared for the more demanding experiences that life inevitably brings.
While the western mindset focuses on happy moments as the ideal, unhappy experiences are often the ones that bring greater depth and quality to our life.
For the number 3, happiness might be easy to achieve, but is almost always a consequence of something materialistic or fleeting (a new car, a new relationship, a sunny day). A higher happiness, one that is not the consequence of a particular event but the result of a deep appreciation toward life itself, is worth a million times more.
The biggest challenge for the 3 is to recognize the real beauty of life is not found in possessions or frivolity, but in the deepest aspects of being human.
When the 3 defies the odds to achieve this state of being, the fact that it has had to travel far to reach such a height makes this number uniquely qualified to help others reach the same goal.
In numerology, the 4 is the number of strength and stability.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 4: THE SALT OF THE EARTH
The chief characteristics of the number 4 are dependability, productivity, punctuality, and obedience. It is trustworthy, patient, conventional, and traditional.
People with prominent 4’s can seem dispassionate and solitary, preferring to toil in quiet obscurity. They work steadily and are extremely persistent, finding deep satisfaction in their accomplishments.
The 4 favors results over financial reward and public recognition. They are humble, often dress conservatively, and don’t clash with their surroundings.
The 4 does not like to draw attention but will fight tooth and nail if you try to muscle in on their territory.
They believe in effort and control and are goal-oriented, but their goals are often simple and down to earth. The 4 is not a visionary but notices every detail. They are capable, proficient, and they don’t cut corners – the perfect employee.
Looking at the shape of the number 4. you will notice the hard angles are a symbolic representation of this rather straight-edged workaholic – less creative or artistic, but excellent at working with their hands.
Many artisans and skilled laborers have the 4 prominent in their charts. The 4 works hard and is a good provider but demands discipline and loyalty. They do not do well in chaotic environments and are prone to panic attacks if it appears they don’t have things well under control.
The 4 does not like to make waves, but values moral convictions and doesn’t back down when convinced they are “doing the right thing.”
However, they can also be intolerant and, when faced with people from other cultures, countries or races, their insecurity and fear of the unknown can make them uncomfortable, even prejudiced at the extreme.
Many 4s choose a career in the military where their disciplined nature is right at home – and do exceptionally well when they are assigned duties that include administrative and organizational work.
As with any number, there are contradicting traits within the 4. For instance, while they are not particularly social or fun-loving, the 4 often reveals an entertainingly dry sense of humor. Further, although they can be strict parents, the 4 is extremely devoted and will walk through fire to get their children what they need.
My description of the 4 is, not surprisingly, almost the exact opposite of my description of the 3. This is to be expected, as each number is a counterpoint to the one that directly precedes it. The 2 is the polar opposite of the 1, the 3 displays traits that are directly opposed to those of the 2, and so on. Keep in mind, if you have a 4 in your core numbers, your other core numbers will affect the influence of the 4.
The most vibrant, freedom-loving of all numbers in numerology
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 5: A DYNAMIC FORCE
The 5 is unpredictable, always in motion, and constantly in search of change.
Although it is molded from an almost equal mix of freedom-loving and loyal characteristics, the 5 is slightly more daring, and there is nothing submissive about it.
The 5 is extremely independent in mind and soul.
For an adventurer and risk-taker who has a hard time staying in one place, one job, or one relationship, the 5 is surprisingly loyal when the right partner comes along.
The 2 and the 6 are known as the most harmonious relationship numbers. Still, both will cheat on a partner when temptation is strong enough. The 5 will not. The 5 may break off a relationship due to their restless nature, but they will rarely deceive a partner. Although, when they are not in a committed relationship, they have no problem dating a different person every day of the week
The 5 generally doesn’t find a suitable career until they’ve tried several different jobs, some barely lasting long enough to warrant a full paycheck. This is especially true if there is monotonous routine involved; boredom sets in quickly for the 5 who simply cannot stand predictable, repetitive work.
But again, the 5 will surprise friends and family once they find their niche. This usually happens after age 30 when their focus, energy, and quick mind help them scramble up the ladder (faster, and with less apparent effort, than those around them).
Many 5s choose careers that require travel or otherwise offer a regular change of environment. People working in the travel industry, small business owners, independent consultants, lawyers, and those in sales often have the 5 in their core numbers.
The 5 can adjust quickly to pretty much anything coming their way.
The 5 is versatile, adaptable, intelligent, progressive, and tolerant. Convention bores them, and they are easily drawn to the eccentrics and misfits of society.
A social creature, the 5 is funny and uplifting, good at making others feel comfortable around them. They are generally well-liked and often surrounded by friends and acquaintances. However, they can also be polarizing, so people that are typically uptight, self-righteous, or judgmental are quickly aggravated by them.
Perhaps the most dominating trait of the 5 is the uncompromising demand for freedom in thought and action.
People with a prominent 5 in their core numbers make up their own mind, rebel against dogma and ideology, and recoil from clubs, cults, and religious sects. Their adventurous, daredevil nature may include riding motorcycles, but they will not typically ride with a large group. Chances are a 5 will be opinionated and passionate about political issues, but will remain independent of formal political parties.
A 5 may change their mind (regularly) but not without good reason. They won’t be controlled but are flexible and can be converted if the argument makes sense. The 5 has a healthy sense of humor and doesn’t sweat the small things. They carry their heart on their sleeve, and it’s not uncommon to give that heart to the wrong person – they are not always the best judge of character.
On the negative side, the 5 can be selfish, thoughtless, and irresponsible.
Rarely considering the future beyond next week, worrying is not in their nature. The 5 tends to procrastinate and can be unreliable. However, their most common downfall is a tendency to experiment with sex, drugs, alcohol, and other addictions. A desire for instant gratification, lack of restraint, and their feeling of invulnerability can be a recipe for disaster.
The shape of numbers reflect their nature, and just as the 4 is square and grounded, the 5 is a symbol of dynamic energy, elastic and constantly in motion.
The 6 is considered the most harmonious of all single-digit numbers in numerology.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 6: THE CARETAKER
The most important attribute of the 6 is its loving, caring nature. Aptly nicknamed the motherhood/fatherhood number, the 6 is all about sacrifice, healing, protecting, and teaching others.
No family or community can function without the attention of the 6 – it is the glue that keeps a family and community together.
Creating an environment of peace and harmony is always at the forefront.
Home, family, and friends are top priorities. People with a 6 in their core numbers often focus on the young, the old, and those less fortunate.
The 6 is sympathetic, favors the underdog, and has a keen sense of what is fair and just. Perceiving injustice, the 6 will sacrifice immense time and effort to set things straight. Highly responsible, the 6 can be counted on to show up and do more than their fair share of the work. People with a 6 can be demanding, but they will work in the background when needed, without an expectation of reward.
The 6 is graceful, warm, and has a good sense of humor.
They are well respected in the workplace due to their sense of duty and responsibility – but also because they are genuinely well-liked. Many 6’s can be found in teaching, healing, counseling, construction, the legal field, and law enforcement.
On the negative side, the 6 can be jealous and small-minded, often focusing on small details while ignoring the bigger picture (often to their own detriment).
Not always the best judge of character, the 6 has been known to sacrifice for a person or cause not worth the price.
At times, the 6 can become too involved in the lives of those held dear, to the point where concern becomes intrusive and meddling. On the other hand, the 6 – ever sacrificing – can become a doormat to be abused and trampled on. The 6 is idealistic, trusting, and easy to take advantage of.
The 6 can be conventional, and must be wary of adopting the opinions of others instead of using their own mind.
They can also be smug and arrogant, especially toward authority figures and institutions. Sometimes annoyingly self-righteous, the 6 can become an intolerant zealot. A disproportional number of people with OCD have the 6 prominent in their charts and can suffer from anxiety and other phobias.
The 6, while loving, caring, and full of sympathy for others, can be self-centered and egotistical if people at the receiving end don’t show the gratitude expected. Typically, however, those fortunate enough to receive the attention of the 6 genuinely appreciate and cherish them in return.
Numerology views no number as without weaknesses and faults; that said, the 6 remains the most harmonious and stable among them. Perhaps for that reason, when the 6 (occasionally) falls into discord, it can become the most destructive and dangerous of all numbers. Beware of a cynical or angry 6, who can become a merciless wolf in sheep’s clothing.
The 7 is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of truth.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 7: THE PHILOSOPHER
The 7 doesn’t take anything at face value, and always strives to understand the hidden truth. The 7 knows nothing is exactly as it seems and reality is often hidden behind illusion.
A person who has a chart dominated by the 7 is easily picked out in a group.
They will be somewhat introverted, perhaps shy (not to be confused with low self-esteem), and never entirely comfortable in social settings.
The 7 is an intellectual, but their intellect isn’t always obvious, especially at an early age. (As a child, Einstein had dyslexia and wasn’t a particularly bright student.)
The 7’s intelligence appears in the form of a dreamer. They are intellectual explorers of the obscure and tend to have an off-beat perspective of the world around them. Many 7s are interested in the metaphysical, not because they are believers, but because it allows access to the abstract world of questions that have no clear answers.
The number 7 is spiritual but not religious.
The age-old questions surrounding what life is all about- why we are here, who we are, and so forth – are essential to the 7’s life-experience. They don’t stop looking for the answers they seek until they die.
The number 7 can be aloof, hates gossip, and is immune to small-minded backstabbing. Money means little to the 7, and they will rarely make a decision based on an expected financial outcome.
There is a dry, usually misunderstood sense of humor to the 7, yet it is unable to recall jokes easily. A 7 individual is rarely cheerful and never superficial.
The 7 has excellent taste, along with a natural love and understanding of art.
They dislike or entirely ignore fashion, and popular beautiful-but-shallow people bore a 7 to no end. Rather, 7s are attracted to the eccentric. They are not always interested in politics but have a strong sense of justice.
A 7 doesn’t typically care about professional sports or other team activities. They are not warriors, but you may find some people who have the 7 dominating their charts in the military, most likely as analysts or strategic planners. More often, you will find them in the world of academics and science. Police detectives, laboratory researchers, and other careers where logic and methodical analysis are the main requirements fit 7s well.
On the negative side, the 7 can be cynical, verbally abusive, arrogant, and oblivious to the pain and suffering of others.
The 7 is opinionated and tends to know a bit about everything, which can be annoying to others. They are not always honest, often choosing a more “interesting” truth than the actual truth.
Many people are uncomfortable around 7s due to their penetrating eyes – creating the sense that, even when they seem to be listening, they’re actually analyzing the shape of your face and the crevices of your earlobes.
They can be cold-hearted, cruel, and show a lack of empathy. Other peoples’ problems simply don’t interest them, but when it comes to their troubles, they expect everyone to feel for them. They can be selfish, anti-social, demanding patients, exasperating know-it-alls, and just plain rude.
The essence of the number 7 symbolizes our struggle to know and understand.
What’s unique about the 7 is that their mind is their greatest tool as well as their most significant limitation. Logical, flexible, and hungry for knowledge, the 7’s mind goes places other numbers rarely approach. Their imagination is vast and powerful, which guides them into spiritual stratospheres others will never know. The 7 digs deep, but is always intellectual and rational.
The satisfaction they derive from mental exploration allows a 7 to enjoy many hours in solitude. At the same time, they put too much faith in the power of the mind; this can limit their ability to experience the essence of life, which can be known only through experience, not through thought or words.
The Tao Te Ching mentions, “Those who know do not speak. Those who speak do not know.” Similarly, life in its purest form can only be felt and experienced, never defined. For 7s to reach a height of spiritual wisdom, they must travel beyond their mind’s limitations and allow the inner silence to spill its secrets.
The most misunderstood number in numerology.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 8: BALANCE & POWER
In Numerology, both novices and professionals alike tend to focus on the “money and power” image of the 8. Often when a client requests a name change consultation, it’s because they want to add 8s to their chart with the mistaken belief it will bring them money and power.
It is true that the 8, more than any other number, emphasizes the areas of career, business, finances, and authority.
As with other single-digit numbers, the shape reflects its most important attribute; in the case of the 8 it signifies balance. The 8 is the great Karmic Equalizer, a force that creates just as efficiently as it destroys. When the 8 comes knocking, you can be assured you will reap what you’ve sown.
The 8 creates a balance between the material and spiritual worlds.
At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The sacred side of the 8 is practical, rational, and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine realization.
On the material plane, it is focused on results – often in the form of money – yet it doesn’t care about acquiring wealth merely for the sake of being wealthy. It is not greedy; it sees money as a tool not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks.
People with strong 8s in their charts often make and lose fortunes more than once during their life.
The 8 doesn’t consider bankruptcy a reason to slow down or feel sorry for themselves – and they usually come out stronger and more success-oriented than before.
Some of the more recognizable traits of the 8 are drive, ambition, authority, efficiency, organization, management, discipline, and control. Individuals with the 8 in their core numbers are goal-oriented, focused, have good judgment, are discriminate, and practical. In short, the 8 is a realist.
Its closest relative is the 1, as both numbers are powerful, have strong leadership skills, and will not shy away from confrontation. While the 1 lacks diplomatic skills and an understanding of human nature (typical traits of the 2), the 8 does exhibit those abilities. This is perhaps the principal reason why the 8 tends to do well in business and authority roles – the military and law enforcement also attract many 8s.
When the 8 appears in your personality profile chart, it indicates the presence of the character traits mentioned earlier as well as the potential to be successful and prosperous. Hence, the reason so many people hope to manipulate their charts by adding one or more 8s.
While the 8 carries enticing gifts, its energy needs to be supported by other numbers for it to flourish. The 4 helps keep an eye on the all-important details, and the 9 keeps the 8 in touch with their humanity.
Be careful what you ask for.
If you decide to change your name to add one or more 8s to your profile, the rest of your chart must be able to support this strong force. If the 8 is out of balance, you may inherit more of its negative attributes, like frustration, dissatisfaction, anger, aggression, greed, intolerance, hate… and insomnia.
A higher-than-average percentage of 8s find their way into the top echelons of society, but you will also find a disproportionate number of 8s among the homeless.
If the 8 appears in your cycles – especially your Essence cycle – it carries an increase in energy and focus, a newfound sense of motivation, and enhanced self-confidence. The shape of the 8 shows balance, but it also reveals confidence, as it looks you right in the eye. A constructive 8 is honest to a fault, generous, and forgiving. They can be physically imposing or athletic and tend to excel in sports requiring strength and endurance.
Most 8s are not particularly romantic in the traditional sense, as they prefer a more practical and straight-forward approach. Still, they are loving and more than carry their weight in relationships.
As with all single-digit numbers, the 8 has a positive and a negative side.
One mystery of Numerology is that there is a small number of people who, from an early age on and for no discernible reason, seem to turn the opposite direction of what their charts indicate. “Seem” is the keyword here. This phenomenon is found with all numbers, but it appears to affect 8s more than others. There are quite a few people whose charts are dominated by 8s that become priests, missionaries, humanitarians, and so forth. However, even those selfless, loving individuals tend to be skilled in fundraising, money management, and authority.
The 9 highlights a mathematical and philosophical observation that is unique and revealing.
The Numerology Meaning of the Number 9: GLOBAL AWARENESS
From a purely mathematical perspective, the 9 stands apart.
When you multiply any number by 9, then add the resulting digits and reduce them to a single digit, it always becomes a 9. For example, 6 x 9 = 54, reduce 54 to a single digit by adding them together: 5 + 4 = 9. Similarly, 8 x 9 = 72, and 7 + 2 = 9. Or 23 x 9 = 207, 2 + 0 + 7 = 9, and so forth.
There is nothing coincidental about this peculiarity.
Try it. Any number, no matter how large, multiplied by 9 reduces to 9. From a numerological perspective, the 9 simply takes over, like the infamous body snatchers. Any number that was initially increased by a factor of 9 loses its own identity and instead takes on the characteristics of the 9.
No other number has that quality.
A different, but no less distinctive attribute of the 9 happens when you add it to any other number, then reduce that number to a single digit. In this case, it always comes back to itself as if nothing was added at all – it doesn’t change anything from the initial single digit value.
For example, 5 + 9 = 14, 1 + 4 = 5. Or 7 + 9 = 16, 1 + 6 = 7. 24 (which reduces to 6) + 9 = 33, 3 + 3 = 6. Again, have some fun, try it on a bunch of numbers.
When multiplying, the 9 takes over, but when adding, the 9 does nothing.
For a math junkie like myself, this is beauty. It symbolically touches the core of the magic that underlies this creation. But enough about math, let’s look at the personality of this unique number.
The highest of the cardinal numbers, the 9 is the most worldly and sophisticated of all.
The 9 has similarities with the 6 – including its shape (turned upside down). However, where the 6 is a symbol of love and compassion directed to people close to them (friends, family, the local community), the 9 offers love and care to the world at large.
The 9, more than any other number, has global consciousness – a reservoir of giving with a generous downward spout.
The 9 lives in the world and understands the connection between all people. Individuals with this number are humanitarians who see no difference between their next-door neighbor and people from different cultures on the other side of the world. The 9 is the least judgmental of all numbers, the most tolerant and the most conscious.
The 9 is overwhelmingly loving and empathetic.
People often regard those with a strong 9 as majestic, graceful, and elevated, but closely connected with the rest of humankind. At the same time, they can be hard to reach, seem aloof, and tend to float above the small-minded issues that can be upsetting to others. People either love or loathe 9 individuals, but find it difficult to deny the respect they demand. 9s have impeccable taste, are talented, creative, and usually quite eloquent when they express themselves.
The 9 is called the “Mother Theresa” number because it doesn’t hesitate to rectify abuse. More importantly, it does not seek credit for giving assistance. Just as the number 9 added to another number does not force its way into the sum (the sum stays the same) – 9 individuals never force themselves upon others when trying to help.
When circumstances require, 9s can be a powerful force, strong enough to take over and bend others to their will (just as the number 9 does when used to multiply any other number, where it takes control). However, the 9 is not a leader in the same way the 1 and the 8 are; its influence comes from the higher realms of philosophy and justice. A 9 does not use force or cunning, they just change your mind!
Although they are generally selfless, a 9 is often prosperous. This contradiction helps illustrate the true nature of the 9. Where an 8 becomes financially successful by focusing on the potential reward from an undertaking, 9s earn financial reward by utterly ignoring the monetary potential of an endeavor, the exact opposite of the 8.
As for matters of the heart, the 9 is not particularly romantic.
The 9 can be a difficult romantic partner, not only because they are demanding, but because you never know to what extent you’ve managed to reach them emotionally. 9s tend to hide their hearts, so even after knowing them for many years, the connection can still seem a bit distant.
They are loyal friends but will not allow themselves to become vulnerable. The most telling attribute of the 9 is the always subtle, difficult to pinpoint feeling there is more to them than meets the eye. They carry depth and intuition, and are at all times aware of their surroundings, like a person with over-developed peripheral vision.
As with any number, the 9 has a dark side.
A 9 can be condescending, arrogant, cold, and apathetic towards the suffering of others. When the 9 shows its dark side, it is egotistic, cruel, immoral, and completely untouchable. Unfortunately, it is easy for a 9 to fall into the dark side. For example, if they perceive themselves to be the victim of an injustice, they can turn vindictive, unforgiving, and malicious.
When the 9 appears as a cycle, it often denotes a finality, the completion of an era.
The 9 as a cycle is frequently seen as an indicator of death. This is simplistic and incorrect. When you are in the 9th period of a cycle (such as the 9th year of a 9-year cycle), it suggests you are in the final stages of that period or endeavor. It’s a time to empty your bucket and prepare for change, let go of the past, wrap up loose ends, and make way for new opportunities.
In Personal Year cycles, the 9 is always followed by the 1; every time you go through that two-year phase (from one year to the next) you go through a transformation of some kind. Look at any period in your life when you went through a 9 Personal Year followed by a 1 Personal Year and you will find this to be true. Then, look at your Essence and Transit cycles to learn what the fundamental nature of that transformation was.
The Period cycles require no calculation whatsoever, other than reducing the units of your date of birth to single digits or, in some cases, Master numbers. Let’s use the example birth date of May 15, 1949.
The First Period cycle is the month of birth reduced to a single digit (unless you were born in November, in which case you would leave it as 11 since it is a Master number). In our example, the First Period cycle would be 5, for the month of May.
The Second Period cycle is the day of birth reduced to a single digit. In this case 15 reduces to 6 (because 1 + 5 = 6). If you were born on the 11th or the 22nd, you don’t reduce your day of birth, because they are Master numbers.
The Third Period cycle is your year of birth reduced to a single digit. In the case of our example, 1 + 9 + 4 + 9 = 23, and 2 + 3 = 5, so the Third Period cycle is 5.
Each of your Period cycles covers approximately 30 years of your life and can be seen as stages of growth.
People with a Sun Number 1 tend to have a stubborn, headstrong approach to changing circumstances.
They often take the bull by the horns with a “damn the torpedoes” attitude. Strong and motivated, 1s are not afraid of confrontations. And at times, 1s can be too impulsive.
Sun Number 1 has energy to spare, with enough stamina to survive even the toughest times.
However, there is a limit to what they can do, and when a person with Sun Number 1 reaches that limit, they tend to shatter without much advance warning. And once they crash, it takes a long time to pick up the pieces and start the healing.
Sun Number 1s respond quickly, but don’t always recognize the true nature of upcoming changes until they have already set things in motion. A 1 should learn to recognize the subtle signs that usually appear ahead of the storm.
Pride can be the downfall of this headstrong number.
Successful Sun Number 1s have learned the need to be humble and remember that much has been given to them.
In love, the Sun Number 1 is passionate, but needs to dominate — and it has a bit of jealous streak. While the 1 Sun Number is original and creative, it could use a more subtle and romantic approach. The 1 is anything but intuitive and has a tendency to misread his or her partner.
The 1 Sun Number can be quite demanding, yet it is also extremely protective of its partner.
The one trait that is pretty much guaranteed to ruin a relationship with the 1 is when he or she feels a lack of respect or sense that he or she is being taken for granted. Otherwise, the 1 has a thick skull and an even thicker skin. You can be as direct as you want to be — the 1 can handle it.
Don forget your ultimate numerology report !
People with a Sun Number 2 take a careful and deliberate approach to changes.
Weighing the pros and the cons, 2s consider future consequences, then, and only then, they make their moves. 2 personalities tend to avoid direct confrontations, preferring instead to apply tact and diplomacy. They have no trouble drawing support from others, and share their troubles and their successes easily.
Sun Number 2s are intuitive and often sense changes before they become evident.
Understanding of human nature and a cunning intellect generally serves this number well. But if not careful, it is this trait that could easily tempt a 2 into conning others into doing things they later regret.
2s have a good sense of timing, which is a key survival skill. However, they often surrender to the inevitable quickly and sometimes allow themselves to be beaten down without much of a fight.
But a 2’s strength is resilient and they will quickly rise again. Sun Number 2s are sympathetic to the plight of others, but if tempted, they can easily fall prey to selfish and greedy tendencies.
When it comes to love, the 2 Sun Number is a highly intuitive, sensitive and romantic partner who should be handled with kid’s gloves.
The 2 is emotionally vulnerable in general, but especially in romance. The 2 looks right through anything that is not sincere and genuine, so playing games with a 2 will get you in hot water.
At the same time, while typically against confrontation (preferring diplomacy and tact over the in-your-face approach), the 2 has a hard edge as well — one that allows it to take a stand and not budge toward a compromise.
The 2 Sun Number is highly sensual and tends to put his or her partner first. Not particularly passionate, the 2 still knows how to please — and how to be pleased.
Always keep in mind that the 2 is fragile, and if you break it, you will have to deal with some dangerously sharp fragments.
All in all, Sun Numbers 1, 5, 6, 8, and 9, have the best chance of stealing the heart of a 2.
People with a Sun Number 3 are innovative and creative.
They think outside the box and find solutions quickly. Bubbling with optimism, a 3 person typically has a childish streak that lets them avoid their responsibilities, especially those that demand effort and attention. 3s tend to be loved by many, but often their own love for others tends to be somewhat superficial.
Sun Number 3s like to skate the surface, using their considerable sense of humor to keep things light and sunny.
However, when hit by one of life’s more serious challenges, a 3 will surprise everyone by displaying a lot more endurance, courage and determination than anyone expected — including themselves.
Hands down, creativity is a 3’s biggest asset when it comes to taking advantage of opportunities, or overcoming obstacles. Unfortunately, the effort level doesn’t always live up to it. As a result, 3s leave quite a few unfinished projects, unfulfilled dreams, and empty promises behind in their path.
Successful Sun Number 3s have learned to focus and be disciplined in how they approach changing circumstances. When a 3 does manage to push something all the way to its goal, that accomplishment tends to be enormously satisfying.
In love, the 3 Sun Number may appear somewhat superficial and flaky when it gets involved in a romantic relationship, but that’s just hiding a more serious undertone.
The 3 Sun Number tends to be a happy, upbeat number, but also understands how vulnerable that happiness can be.
For that reason, they dread pessimism and negativity, and approach any major change in life — which a romantic relationship can be — with caution. Sun Number 3s have no trouble entering into a romantic relationship they know is not meant to last.
In fact, the 3 can certainly become a bit promiscuous, but when a 3 senses that it might become more serious, he or she will back off.
The way to get a 3 to commit to a long-term relationship is by being patient and absolutely not demanding.
The 1, 3, 5, and 7 are the most suitable romantic Sun Numbers to pair up with the skittish 3.
People with a Sun Number 4 are sticklers for details.
They take a systematic, efficient approach to whatever comes their way. They are solid and stable, and it takes a major change to knock a 4 off his or her feet. However, 4s have a dislike of changes, preferring to maintain the status quo. For that reason, they are not always quick to catch on. 4s will most likely miss opportunities because they waited too long.
Their biggest asset is the willingness to put forth considerable effort.
Sun Numbers 4 are not procrastinators and tend to apply themselves with focus and dedication. Demanding much from themselves, 4s are not satisfied until they are the best at what they do.
Sometimes this passion for perfection can make a 4 easily frustrated and not much fun to be around when they are working. 4s struggle with the concept of relaxation and tend to be all work and no play.
A less desirable quality of a 4 Sun Number is that they can be cruel and lack empathy.
However, what others don’t know is that they are equally as demanding of themselves as they are of others. It isn’t so much that 4s are materialistic, but that they consider accomplishments to be the crux of all existence.
Successful Sun Number 4s have learned to accept that nothing is guaranteed in life, and that if you want to fulfill your dreams, you may have to take a risk every now and then.
The 4 Sun Number is comfortable and secure in most settings … with the exception of romance.
In love, the grounded 4 just doesn’t know how to handle itself when the earth falls away and love takes it to the sky. It takes time for a 4 Sun Number to reveal what is in his or her heart.
However, once they fall in love, the 4 tends to stay in love. They are not particularly passionate, nor are they sensual, but they more than make up for that with the intensity of their devotion.
If you are on the receiving end of a 4 Sun Number’s affections, you will never have to worry about its depth or the strength of its commitment. Solid as a rock, the 4 Sun Number will always be there for you.
All in all, the 5, 6 and 8 tend to be the more suitable partners for a 4 Sun Number.
Psychic Distance Healing (9)
Yes. An activation acknowledges that the energies already form an intrinsic part of the individual even though they may be dormant unrecognized and unacknowledged. An initiation and an attunement is based on the intention to introduce something from outside of the individual.
They come forth from a time and space where only harmony, balance and love with-out conditions exists. These energies have traditionally been thought of to be in the 5th Dimension, but now we know that these energies exist within other dimensional realities as well. The energies we work with are unconditional love & light healing energies from Source, directed through the diamond “body” of the collective consciousness of the Ascended and Galactic Masters. The level of these energies that we can absorb and use are more available now than ever before, and continues to grow as we expand into our true selves. The clearings and activations that are experienced with the New Paradigm MDT system are first and foremost, geared to assist us all in this expansion into freedom called ascension. “Ascension” is a continual process, not a one-shot deal, and it involves raising the vibration of our physical body to the level that our higher self can merge with it and still walk & live on Earth. For the Earth, too, is in this process of ascension; we are going along with her, not the other way!
As a rainbow is one entirety with different bands of colour, so also reality is an entirety of vibrations with separate bands of vibration within it. These bands of vibration with each its own personality or identity have been named dimensions. The third dimension is known for time, space, direction and other recognizable elements. So has each dimension its own personality and identity.
New Paradigm MDT is a system of high frequency energies that activate conscious awareness and accelerate personal growth. Through New Paradigm MDT you can release old emotional patterns and beliefs replacing them with Love without conditions and Freedom. This exchange can activate a journey of reclaiming your true self while embracing a life of joy, harmony peace and love.
What is The Difference Between New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Transformation, The Mahatma and Golden Flower of Life
New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Transformation is a special energy directed from Source through the Diamond of the collective Ascended and Galactic Masters and the Brotherhood of Light. One can use it to facilitate healing for self and others once one has been activated to it. This is an evolutionary energy which helps us to grow vibrationally under the guidance of our I Am Presence. Master Germain is in charge of grounding this energy in 3D at this time, through John Armitage/Hari Das Baba).
Love Without Conditions [which IS the Mahatma energy] is the heart and soul of the New Paradigm MDT. It is a specific energy described as a golden-silver light with violet sparkles, that was first grounded on Earth in 1987 around the time of the Harmonic Convergence, through a being known this time around as Brian Grattan [previously as the apostle Peter, among other lifetimes]. Brian ascended WITH his body in 1996, paving the way for the rest of us. This Mahatma pure love without conditions from Source /Mother/Father God is a specific personal Love energy that has not been able to be grounded on Earth until these times, because back in Atlantean times people did not have sufficiently developed emotional bodies (they believed their emotional bodies to be detrimental to spiritual growth so focused exclusively on the mind).
The Golden Flower of Life is the Seed Blueprint of Creation. This is the original pattern of life on Earth (most likely of life everywhere, at least in this universe). It is symbolized by a series of 6 intersecting circles with a 7th in the center. Since all of Creation is held together by Love without conditions from Mother/Father Source, all of the above are related.
John Armitage/Hari Das Baba brought the system forth at the request of Master Germain and the rest of the Multi-Dimensional and Galactic Masters. Master Germain called down the original system from Source during Atlantean days. He and his friends used the energies of that original 22-symbol system to raise the vibrations of the Beings who were being used as slaves, so that they could heal and empower themselves out of slavery. This was the original “transformation”, raising vibrations to help Beings realize their own personal power and take control of their own freedom. This process has not changed, just expanded. The system now being brought through Hari Baba covers at least 352 levels of Creation back to the Source of All That Is. It means empowerment through freedom and taking responsibility for ourselves.
With our customary focus of daily life in the third dimension we are generally unaware of the fact that we are much more than just 3rd Dimensional Beings. We have a presence in at least 12 dimensions of reality. It is just that we are generally unaware of these other aspects and elements of ourselves. In the New Paradigm MDT workshops, attention is given to all aspects of ourselves that allows for harmony and balance to exist within the entirety of who we are.
Paradigm is a term referring to the structure of concepts, ideas and beliefs that determine how we see life, society and people. New paradigm is a way of saying we are letting go of old patterns, old ideas, old beliefs and old structures about ourselves and our lives. This is most certainly one of the most important effects that is set in motion with the workshops activating participants with these expanding energies.
The term multi-dimensional is discussed further below. The reason why the word “transformation” is being used instead of “healing” is because the system is geared toward inner personal growth and transformation. In the initial years the thinking was that this system gave those receiving the activations and energies the capacity to facilitate healing in others and themselves. This is still correct thinking however we have come to realize that this is more a side effect from someones own personal transformation. The biggest and most important effect is the transformational impact on each individuals consciousness and life experience.
