Students of awareness around the globe are starting to wake up to the knowledge that we are in a global period of rapidly accelerating consciousness. Even mainstream scientists and psychologists are using terminologies that have been a part of the metaphysical lexicon for decades. Much of the consciousness movement is about waking up to our cosmic heritage and connection to all of life throughout creation.
It is mainstream fact that we are multidimensional beings, and beyond that the mainstream media remains pretty much silent about the path of awakening that leads to an expanded sensitivity to greater levels of existence leading to Oneness of connection to all and forever. Religion has alluded to it, while mystics have long sought to encourage humanity to search within for it.
Transcendental numerology provides clues for the awakening about their greater heritage of consciousness and multilevel nature. It is a symbolic reference point that provides markers of achievement toward a reunion with our eternal Self. Take a stroll down the path of evolution and enjoy the memories that come back into your being as you reconnect to glimpses of your long misplaced and buried divine Self.
Number 1 and Transcendence—Before the beginning, there was a kind of cosmic stew of undifferentiated and homeostatic atomic potential of all that could be. At some point the desire for movement overcame the cosmic night of rest, and the first forces of creation were released. You might say that space moved.
The number one represents this initial primal step of creation. Pulling back against this thrust of activity was an opposition to this movement. You might think of it as the desire to return to the void or the pre embryonic status. The resulting tug of war resulted in the primal movement taking a curved path into manifestation.
What starts as a point and line curves back upon itself to become an all embracing ring, or circle of manifestation. At that point the one is the all and all. Everything that is of manifestation is included within the boundaries of the ring. In the beginning the 1 is the ONE. As evolving beings of light experienced the illusion of duality, the ONE became the 1; linear, separate and alone.
At that moment of the illusion of separation, the ego centered consciousness of 1 became increasingly confused, angry, rebellious and defiant toward the creator and other members of creation. The disillusioned 1’s tried to stand alone and against the laws of creation, and in some case attempted to change those laws to fit your confused needs. Throughout evolution the discontented 1’s have initiated many projects to prove that they can do better than the Creator, always experiencing disappointment when they left out the law of ONE in their planning.
Such is the story of the one; capable of achievement beyond glory, and capable of desperate isolation and rebellion against it’s very true self. You can get a clue as to the challenges and potential of the 1 by its placement in your personal chart. In the personality position the challenge is ego and dealing with willful and egocentric people coming into your life. It is very similar with the life number.
When it is your soul number the challenge is to see your inner ONEness and determine just how badly you want to reconnect. When it is the number of the integrated self you have done a lot of the inner work in the past, and if you choose to take this assignment, the opportunity is there to integrate all parts of your earthly personality and soul and Self. The challenge of the 1 destiny number is to recognize the individuality in all of life and encourage the best of every soul.
Number 2 and Transcendence-2 is the number of duality, straddling different dimensions, identity and defining of the person’s self-image. In the dysfunctional society and times in which we live most people are survivors of dysfunction and have created a survival image and external persona that has gotten them through life for better or worse.
The next step in self-awareness and personal growth is to recognize the dysfunctional patterns and modes and reconstruct them into healthy life modalities. Once that is accomplished, the next step toward Higher growth is to release false self-images and reestablish connection with the true eternal Self.As the awakening 2 embarks upon the journey toward cosmic consciousness, a different set of self-perception evolves. That individual seeks to free oneself of the illusion of duality and attachment to the 3rd dimension perception, thus opening the gate to advancement into the higher dimension of perception and living. Often this stage is accompanied by contact with other beings and helpers of the light who assist from these higher planes of consciousness.
Thus, the challenge of the enlightened 2 is to live by the inner laws of light. That awakening soul increasingly acknowledges the eternal nature of being and seeks to share the key to eternal living with other seekers of that light.
Number 3 and Transcendence-In the beginning the number 3 is represented by the ring pass not which brings stability and definition to the creative progression and completes metaphorically the dynamics of The Absolute (or the triune attributes of the Source). The trinity in some form is represented in all major religions. Numerologically this is expressed as Divine Will (1), Divine Wisdom (2) and Divine Love (3).
The 3 completes the fundamental processes of the creation, and as such is symbolic of creativity and the life force. It western thought 3 is associated with the Christ word spoken. As the seeker of truth progresses along the path toward light, 3 is associated with the basics of alchemy. And, in the end, that leads to the transmutation of human (lead) into spirit (gold). Three symbolizes the cosmic dance that reverberates throughout creation. It is the yin and yang coming to the Tao. Love occurs where poise, peace and balance become acclimated into the personality.
Three is the expression of creation and encourages beauty, aesthetic harmony and the meeting point in rhythm. When you are in touch with your true self you speak and act in a natural and direct way which touches the truth and the best in those with whom you communicate.
Human love is often portrayed in terms of romance, desire and longing for the perfect mate.
The lesson of love of the transcendent 3 is that which comes from completion of self. Through the trial of personal growth and application of spiritual principles to living the seeker of light reaches an integration of the anima and animus through connection with the Divine archetypes. This attribute of love does not desire, but is. It does not desire partner to be what the personality wants. Rather, it allows partner to be who partner is.
Number 4 and Transcendence-Number 3 is the number of creativity and 4 that of the building blocks of creation. It is the number of natural laws, the laws of physics, engineering, sacred geometry and esoteric knowledge of subtle energies to name a few.
To the aspiring ascendant 4 marks the point of dedication to the discipline of body, mind and spirit. This take many paths of devotion and study including Yoga, paranormal development, meditation, numerous other potential disciplines of inner and outer development. The aspirant on this spiral frequently sense s the connection to, and use of energies from multiple levels of consciousness.
The number 4 is related to the Lord’s work or Divine work. When it appears in the personal chart there is often a sense of need that there is a greater work for the person to be doing. In esoteric literature this is often referred to as entering the Path (the path of enlightenment, the spiritual path, the Higher Path, etc.).
Number 5 and Transcendence-The number 5 relates to the senses, sexuality, experience and humanity. It encourages life, living and the accumulation of experience for the soul. On the path to higher living 5 represents the living laws. These are not posted religious laws such as , “thou shall not eat cilantro on Thursday” or “thou shall think of salt only on the third day of the fourth month after the full moon”.
Rather, the living law comes from attunement to your inner spark or perpetual atom. Just as the cosmos works in cycles of expansion, contraction and balance; so, too, the spark reflects the cosmic cycles in terms of pulses and rhythms that can be felt by the awakened aspirant. I referred to it in terms of Goldilocks long before scientists used it as a term of cosmology. There is a time to experience (expansion). There is a time to absorb and collect (contraction). And. There is a time to assimilate that which has been experienced and observed (balance).
This becomes the laws of karma in human terms. Too much (sins of commission). Too little (sins of omission). And just right.
The living law comes from connection to the inner true Self and listening to the small voice from within that guides us from the highest level of awareness. Today the inner voice may say, “eat cilantro on Thursday”. And the next Thursday it may say, “you have had enough”. We are complex beings, and there are many parts to the whole clamoring for attention. On the lower levels that includes the demand of the body (often addictive or indulgent), the errant mind, untamed emotions and the famous old negative ego for example.
The higher 5 vibration includes following regimes that enhance cleansing and connection to the higher senses and eternal components of Self.
Number 6 and Transcendence--Number 6 on the higher level is related to service, emotional integration within self and connection of heart and the cosmic expression of love. The archetypal symbol for 6 is the two entwined upright and upside down equilateral triangles often associated with the Star of David. This cosmic symbol, however, far out dates any secular religious connotation and is universal in meaning.
Esoterically it represents as above so below, the divine coming down to be manifest in material expression. And, it also represents the aspiration of that which is trapped in the material to return to its divine spiritual Source. The downward three is the divine triad descending into matter to purify and lift up. The upward triangle represents the Divine spark (created in the image of Source) which has become mired in lower levels of manifestation to include matter, and seeks to awaken and return to cosmic consciousness.
With six comes opening of the heart to the healthy meaning of love and acceptance of self. It includes the knowledge of boundaries and a clear sense of identity and self-worth. Many people with six have karmic guilt for some previous misdeed or act of harm. Out of guilt they compulsively seek to help others, not attending to their own dysfunction.
As the individual attains a state of relative well-being, there is a desire to encourage others in the process of finding a similar consciousness. The heart is open, the mind curious for truth and the will in harmony with the Divine purpose (Higher Will). With that alignment comes an opportunity to serve humanity, the planet and the greater cosmic evolution.
Number 7 and Transcendence--The number 7 on the Path relates to the intuitive feminine expression. It is through the higher mind that the aspirant makes connection with the wisdom of the universal mind. People who open this function may sometimes be thought of as genius. There may be paranormal communication with angels, off planet intelligence or consciousness from other higher dimensions.
It can start with listening to the still soft voice from within. The extended communication may take the form of what is now popularly called channeling.
However, I think it is appropriate to put in some cautions about hearing “voices” and channeling, since both can be a connection to lower level form of life and even dangerous. Multiple personalities and schizophrenics often speak of hearing and responding to voice. So have numerous serial killers. There is usually a compulsive quality to these forms of visitors, and the person experiencing them may speak of not having any choice.
Such is not the way that higher consciousness whispers to, or beckons, the personality of the individual. Often times the intuitive “voice” or calling is quiet and may just come once and not be heard for a long time. It does not implore or push. More often there is an uplifting sense of emotion that comes with knowledge from above when receiving guidance from above.
The path of the 7 is now comforted with times of contemplation, meditation and scrutinization which fosters discernment and quiet attunement to wisdom, and the practice of applying wisdom. At this level the aspirant seeks harmony of rational mind and intuitive mind, and no longer allows logic and reason to cloud out and negate the incoming of intuitive information. Rather, the rational mind responds with welcome to the intuitive flashes and the seeks to find a practical and useful way to apply the inspiration.
Number 8 and Transcendence--The number 8 is one of power, authority, leadership, organization and the application of force to mention a few. On the higher side the figure 8 is said to reflect the infinity symbol and interaction of yin and yang as well. While the number 7 is often associated with self-mastery, the 8 is mastery in the 3rd dimensional world.
The awakened traveler grasps the power of heaven (the upper circle) and applies to the world of matter (the lower circle). In the Bible one of the gifts of spirit is that of administration. It involves application of the laws of nature and mechanics of force in the physical realm.
The enlightened leader is one who knows universal laws and is equally apt at administrating within the context of human laws and social protocols. Rather than seeking to control and accumulate power to flatter the ego and personality needs, he encourages the power and skills of those over whom he rules, and distributes wisdom and guidance with consideration to all.
There is an attunement to subtle forces and the ability to direct them into physical manifestation. There is often a gift of knowledge of one or more of things to do with science, mathematics, physics, hydraulics, engineering, sound, genetics, sacred geometry to name just a few. The awakened 8 is often skilled in deep psychology and astute in understanding human nature both ego and divine. When using authority wisely, the 8 empowers and encourages the realization and application of of inspired accomplishment in every member of the team
Number 9 and Transcendence-The number 9 is considered the number of completion, perfection, utopia, cleansing, purification and idealism to mention a few. Since nine completes the numerical cycle it is associated with elevation of consciousness along with the process of cleansing that goes with it. There is an old esoteric say about living on earth, but not being a part of it. The seeker comes to a point of facing the ego and coming to a place of resolution with its place in priorities.
There are many teachings that talk of killing the ego, or eliminating the ego. I have found neither to be realistic. The ego serves as the chief mechanism of survival and has built eons of time serving and protecting us in our infancy of persona growth. It is full of valuable information and wisdom for having kept us alive through myriads of lifetimes.
Rather than trying to kill or conquer the ego it can be more useful to acknowledge and give thanks to the contribution it has made and give it a place of respect (but no longer control) in your awareness.
As the grip of the ego lessens, we stop focusing up being a survivor and become focused upon living. Transition is made from ego to soul guidance and then connection to the Higher Self. This process of cleansing includes releasing the hold of dysfunctional patterns, victimhood, compulsions, addictions, and the many negative patters on the human personality.
As the personality becomes increasingly clear of the debris of lower consciousness it learns to spend more time living in the light and becoming attuned to the universal archetypes and input. Those with the number 9 often possess refined awareness of artistic and creative ability.
They are the dreamers and strivers for world harmony, cooperation among the nations and socially divergent peoples. They often “see” possibilities and designs of what will become tools for healing, prosperity, advancement and evolution of humanity.
