Loneliness

Loneliness

What does it matter, what’s the point?
This quest to find meaning in life?

Some will give it meaning,
But it’s their own wishful interpretation.
It’s only a longing,
Something that rips at the very foundation of all humans.

There is no meaning.

There is only loneliness,

Whether in a group or by myself in a box,
The feelings are the same.

People come and go,
Each one taking what they need,
Or what they think will make them feel better about their own loneliness.

A self-serving cycle.

Each individual is just that….
An individual.
I can’t be the other individual,
Because I’m not.

I know not what they feel, see or think.
I don’t know why they are the way they are,
Or why they do what they do. They just are. I am too.

I am who I am,
And don’t know why all of my own experiences have led to this present me.
Does anyone really?

Everyone thinks they know,
Or wishes or hopes or tries to convince themselves or others that they do.
I for one have done that.

I can paint a happy, beautiful scene to which I can relay to others
In an attempt to lessen their loneliness.
But is it a real scene,
Or just one I wish to see myself?

I listen to others explain “how it is”, only to find another who says the total opposite,
Both making sense in their own wishful ways.

But either way,
They are individuals that have gathered other individuals
To create an illusion that they are not lonely.

And each and everyone still is unsure.

They still argue the difference between Hope and Faith,
Good and Evil,
Love and Hate.
None of which is ever a black and white ordeal.

I live in the gray, always have,
And so do they.

We are only lonely individuals,
In a sea of lonely individuals.

Today’s Numerology 1~1~2014 Happy New Beginnings

Standard

Day 1 in Numerology

Today’s Numerology 1/1/2014

1 Day

You are exceptionally creative and original, and you possess a touch of the unusual. Your approach to problems are unique, and you have the courage to wander from the beaten path. You can be impatient with your shortcomings and those of others. You are very concerned with your status, and you foster the appearance of success and self-satisfaction. The need to appear well off propels you to strive for growth, success and the finer things in life.

Don’t let pride and overconfidence be your masters. Remember, your talents and abilities are a gift from a higher source, which should promote gratitude and humility rather than pride and conceit.

1 Month

January can be a tough time for some of us who are profoundly affected by the seasons of our planet. It has to do with ancient themes of both hibernation as well as emergence from deep withdrawal.

Before us and behind us are endless doorways of potential and possibilities. Janus is privy to all of these potentials, and January proposes a perfect alignment of energies that allow the opening of all these doors so we may view the contents (insights, possibilities, reflections) inside.

7 Year

Your challenge in life is to maintain your independence without feeling isolated or ineffectual. You must hold fast to your unique view of the world while at the same time being open to others and to the knowledge they have to offer.

With your abilities to learn, analyze and seek out answers to life’s important questions, you have the potential for enormous growth and success in life. By the time you reach middle age you will radiate refinement and wisdom. Pythagoras, who lived 2500 years ago and is often called the father of numerology, loved the 7 for its great spiritual potential.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Freeing Your Mind ~ Notes for an Empath

Standard

255616_568117853209705_365309560_n

Sometimes it’s difficult to stay up on top of it all. You see others in pain, sorrow or other forms of discomfort. You want to hold them tight and tell them it will be all right … but do they believe you? The question of how to help another can get so complicated when that other either doesn’t feel they have the power to overcome, or they choose to stay in the comfort of their discomfort. Be careful not to drag others into your sorrow when seeking that help that you need. Like ripples in water, you can spread that emotion far and wide. This does nothing for the initial ailment, and may indeed cause more for others. Sorrow and discomfort is a personal challenge that you alone must find the meaning in. Aid from others is best sought when you realize that. There is so much love for everyone of us, if we let it be that way. Change your thoughts …. the really pesky ones should be considered not on the irritation of the idea of whatever it is, but should be looked into for meaning. If you can question things in that way, what does it mean and why is this happening … then you have stepped into the plateau of change. Nothing happens on accident and nothing is a coincidence. They are there for you. They are there to help you transcend sorrow and discomfort. Free Your Mind ?

Holding space for one in need, is one thing, but holding space at the expense of your own peace is another. One must be in tune with themselves above all. My status is kind of two fold in that some will ‘vamp’ up all the sympathy they can conger in order not to deal with their own pain alone. They don’t mean to cause grief to others, but they do attract to themselves that which they spread out. If I am in pain or sorrow, I keep it to myself and ask myself why and how do I get past it. I don’t broadcast outward, looking for the like to come back. Any and all pain and sorrow that I experience is a lesson, and I observe it that way. I see others who broadcast victimhood, even those who know about attraction, but still they broadcast victimhood. They are responded to by lots of love and energy for their benefit, yet it’s not enough to get them out of their pain and sorrow. They truly haven’t done that internal asking and learning. For that I have no answer to aid in their relief. No one does. Only they can change the outcome. Encouragement should be directed that way …. to ask for guidance from their higher self. The answer and comfort is there … the pain and sorrow is proof of the need to address it.

I see a lot of people being deeply effected by the Earth/Solar changes. We are all connected with them both after all. Empaths and intuitives seem to be most impacted by these changes, but pretty much everyone is impacted by them. Emotional discharges seem to be all over the place and can bring to the ‘air’ stressful feelings of anger, sorrow, pain, hyperactivity, anxiety; just going into a room full of people can be unbearable to ‘feel,’ and even being in a large city can make you feel smothered in decay.

It is important to know what is yours, and what is not. Empaths seem to have a really hard time remembering that a lot of what they ‘feel’ isn’t their own, and still manage to take it on as if it were. I hear a lot of wonderful people out there having a hard time, and insist that they need shielding and protection as they ‘feel’ they are being attacked. For a Teacher it is wise to counsel them in the real art of grounding, which provides true protection. Not understanding that is avoiding the true meaning. If one can distinguish between what’s theirs and what’s not, then they know what they need to work on internally, and let the other take care of itself for a while.

You can not aleviate ones’ suffering, no matter how sorry you feel for them, if they do not recognize its cause from within. What you can do is leave a light out for them to find their way back. Caring too much for that person is not going to make their real pain go away, and it will keep on manifesting until they do look deeper in to it.

As far as the shifting of our planet, well as below .. so above. It’s not just our planet either, it’s the whole universe that is experiencing a shift. This is all natural however as it’s all cycles. The more that come to grips with their own “stuff” (rather than everyone else’s stuff), the less bumpy the shift will be.

The Gift

A Numerology Forecast for 2014

by Jen Anu

 

“The invisible thing called a Good Name is made up of the breath of numbers that speak well of you” ~ George Savile

 

2013 was quite the roller coaster year for a great many people. The Universal Numerology for 2013 was 6, which alluded to the caring nature of that particular number. Some of you may have noticed quite a bit of change in the family, home and fortune (both positive and negative) in your lives this year. Not to mention an overwhelming gathering of compassion for less fortunate people both near and far, even as our own situations may have been meager. Through it all though, those who found their creative expression through their loving hearts captured the essence of the 6 Year influence. And hopefully, this will help you gain more personal power in the next year to come.

2014 The Year of Introspection

 

I find this year to mean something special to me, as not only is it a Universal 7 year, but it is also my Personal 7 year. I am excited to go within and meet the inner depths of myself and to explore the wonders of the Universe from within. Later on I will show you how to figure out your own Personal Year and how it will influence you. This is the Gift of Numbers!

This year promises to influence us at a collective level, globally and locally. Following on from the theme of 2013, which was about our service to others, 2014 will be an introspective time that will be asking us to join together in connecting with the Divine Spirit. In ancient times, the mystic number 7 was associated with a higher knowledge and cosmic consciousness, and is the divine number of the Creator. It is this higher consciousness and connection with the Divine that connects us all, regardless of what differences we perceive between us.

This year may be very introspective for you as you will find yourself spending more time alone with your thoughts, reflecting on the past, and mapping out your goals and dreams for the future. Your projects and relationships will also be in your focus as well. This is an ideal time to seek out knowledge and understanding of the deeper truths in life as your capacity for investigation and discernment will be strong during this time. This can be a very spiritually driven energy, and a time to share knowledge and wisdom with others through teaching, counseling, writing or conversation.

“Love is like a Rubix Cube, there are countless numbers of wrong twists and turns, but when you get it right, it looks perfect no matter what way you look at it” ~ Brian Cramer

The Universal Year number applies to us all collectively and relays what we all will be experiencing in the upcoming year. Along with this influence, your Personal Year number will speak to you as an individual and what you will be experiencing in the new year. This additional influence will expose experiences and outcomes that you are under, helping you to know where to concentrate your efforts.

I would like to give you each your very own tool to calculate your Personal Year.  It is Christmas after all! Included is a short description of the numbers to allow you to get the feel of what is ahead of you, personally, in addition to the Universal Year’s influence. Please do have fun with it, and remember that the positive and negative aspects of the number are not to be taken as good or bad, but rather as an indication as to where you stand. If you see the positive actions in your life, then you are on the correct path and don’t need to ‘fix’ them. However, if you see the negative aspects in your life, it is an indicator of things you need to work on to raise your vibrations and manifest a more harmonious experience.

How to Calculate Your Own Personal Year

Add the day and month you were born plus the current Universal Year of 7.

Example: For all of those born on 15th of October, regardless of where you may be in the world.

1 + 0 + 1 + 5 + 7 = 14

  Now convert 14 back down to a Personal Number Five Year by adding 1 + 4.

Special Note: In numerology, 10 converts back down to 1. The exceptions are what is referred to as Master Numbers 11 and 22 which are left in that form.

Personal Year 1 ~ Individuality

Individualistic and independent, showing leadership and drive. The 1 is masculine, focused, an originator and self-starter; it is also progressive, strong-willed, courageous, self-reliant and rebellious (in a constructive way). However you can be stubborn, selfish, weak and undisciplined, or a pariah.

Personal Year 2 ~ Adaptability

Sensitive, tactful, diplomatic and cooperative. The 2s tend to be peacemakers and are loving, studious and patient. You may express many musical or feminine qualities and also tends to be sensual and intuitive. However you are often discontent and can be seen as spoiled or lazy. You can be careless, particularly with the truth, but when criticized for your faults are oversensitive.

Personal Year 3 ~ Expression

Imaginative, expressive communicators and artists. You are tolerant, joyful, optimistic, inspiring, talented, jovial, youthful, dynamic … the list goes on and on! But, for as inspirational as you are, there is a price: you may often be vain, extravagant and prone to complaining. Intolerance, hypocrisy, impatience and superficiality are par for the course.

Personal Year 4 ~ Responsibility

Disciplined, strong, stable, pragmatic, down-to-earth, reliable, dependable, hard-working, extracting, precise, methodical, conscientious, frugal, devoted, patriotic and trustworthy! You are the epitome of responsibility. However you may pay for your stability and pragmatism by tending toward the boring side. This may express itself with a lack of imagination, emotions, empathy. You may not bother to put much care into your appearance, and your social awkwardness can make you seem vulgar, crude or jealous.

Personal Year 5 ~ Experience

Energetic, adventurous, daring and freedom-loving. You also tend to be versatile, flexible, adaptable, curious, social, sensual, quick-thinking, witty, courageous and worldly. On the flip side, you can be unstable, chaotic, self-indulgent, irresponsible or careless. You should beware the consequences of drug abuse and unhealthy sexual tendencies.

Personal Year 6 ~ Optimism

Responsible, loving, self-sacrificing, protective, sympathetic and compassionate. These loyal, maternal figures are domestic, fair and idealistic healers or teachers. However, you can overdo its inherent protectiveness and become anxious, worrisome, suspicious, paranoid, emotionally unstable, cynical or jealous. You tend toward the conventional side.

Personal Year 7 ~ Thought

7 isn’t just a lucky number. It’s also spiritual, intelligent, analytical, focused, introspective, studious, intuitive, knowledgeable, contemplative, serious, persevering, refined, gracious and displays much inner wisdom. However, you can be aloof, distant, sarcastic, socially awkward, melancholic, cowardly and, when you’re at your worst, back-stabbers.

Personal Year 8 ~ Power

Authoritative, business-minded leaders. You value control and tend to be powerful, but are also balanced, materially detached, successful and realistic. You end up in management positions, are efficient, capable, street-smart and good judges of character. The dark side of the 8 can be cruel, insensitive, violent, bullish or greedy. At your worst, you can become intolerant religious zealots.

Personal Year 9 ~ Universality

Helpful, compassionate, aristocratic, sophisticated, charitable, generous, humanitarian, romantic, cooperative, creative, self-sufficient, proud and self-sacrificing. However, you can end up being egocentric, arrogant, self-pitying, sentimental, discontent, fickle, cold or mentally unstable.

Personal Year 11 ~ Illumination

The 11 is the most intuitive of all numbers. You are instinctual, charismatic, dynamic and capable when its sights are set on a concrete goal. The 11 is the number associated with faith and psychics. However, you can be anxious, shy, stressed, conflicted and scattered. When focus is not applied toward a goal, you can be extremely self-sabotaging. As a Master number, the positive characteristics will turn into obstacles when not understood or used properly.

Personal Year 22 ~ Material Mastery

The 22 is the most powerful of all numbers, able to turn lofty dreams into realities. You are confident, pragmatic, ambitious and disciplined. However, your impracticality and self-imposed pressure can get the better of you. When unaware of you own potential, you will miss out on or shy away from necessary opportunities. 

Please do enjoy this upcoming New Year with all that it has to offer each and every one of you. Life is a journey, and can be a wonderful one at that if you can master all of your Divinely given traits and talents that enable you to expand the Universe in its growth. Each of us will go through all of these numbers in our lifetimes and that gives us all the advantage to grow and enjoy this experience we call Life. Bless you all © Anu
