Numbers can have a huge impact on our life when we begin to pay attention to them. Numbers are everywhere. When you start to pay attention you’ll see them in places you never thought to look before. Patterns will appear that bring you insight,optimism and peace if you allow them to.
I’ve had a knack for numbers my entire life. I really didn’t realize how long numbers have influenced me until I began to examine my career choices. I went to school to be a bookkeeper and I’ve spent my entire career in the field of numbers working in the financial services industry. I was a bookkeeper for just a few short years and went on to work in the mortgage industry and then on to working with financial advisors. Most importantly is that I realized numbers give me guidance, insight and clarity. And they can do the same for you too.
I was introduced to Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers nine years ago. Since then I have wore out two books and am on my third. copy I recently purchased the android app so I would have the book with me at all times on my phone. And I have to say that I absolutely love having it so conveniently located wherever I go.
Numbers will typically show themselves to me through license plates while I am driving. And I do see them in other places like the clock, a phone number, the cash register when I am making a purchase, the number of emails in my inbox and just recently I looked down at a box sitting in my living room and saw 188. It was a number that had continued to show itself to me for the last five days on license plates. It’s important to note here that when I see a number in an unusual place aside from the license plates, I know it’s really important that I pay attention to the message I’m receiving.
Another very interesting thing is that I see numbers in a gob of numbers. What I mean by that is I can see a sequence of numbers that are not the same but contain the same numbers. For example, I might see a license plate that has 4596 and then a moment later another plate catches my attention that has 5649. This is a bit more complicated to decipher but I know that it’s important for me to pay attention as something very important is being said to me. And I get really excited when I am in the parking lot and I see three or more license plates with the same number sitting side by side or within a few cars of each other. Even after all these years I get so excited to see the serendipity that takes place. You might be surprised how often that happens for me.
There are certain number sequences that I see more often than others. 444 is one that I see a lot along with 111, 333 and 222. I also see 88, 818, 888 and 808 constantly. These specific numbers are very special to me. In fact my car’s license plate has 444 in it. I do see a lot of other numbers but they are random and they will bring me the message that I needed to hear exactly at that time. I can be thinking about something while I am driving and I’ll see a number sequence that will answer the question I was posing or give me an uplifting message that applies to what it was I was thinking about. Doreen says that if you see the number sequence at least three times you need to pay attention to it. I agree but I would add that as you become more accustom to paying attention to the number sequences you won’t need to see them three times to know a message is being delivered. For me, it only takes two number sequences for me to know it’s a message. I feel like if I wait around for the next number to appear I’m just making the angels work a little harder to deliver the number to me, so I feel like I’m saving them the energy of placing the number in my sight. . There are times when I only need to see the number sequence once and I know intuitively that I need to look at the message. Do what feels right for you, the more you pay attention, the more you’ll know what it feels like know the number sequence is for you.
Recently, I drew an Enchanted Elemental for a client as an Essence Portrait and was really surprised when a number appeared in the drawing. It wasn’t an obvious number it was more of a metaphor. The top part of the drawing had triangles and I kept hearing “the power of three”. It took me a few minutes to realize the triangles represented the number 3. This was a powerful moment for me as I had the realization that numbers appear for us in many different ways to encourage us, empower us and guide us. It also reminded me that we should pay more attention to the signs and patterns that show up for us. There’s a lot of crucial information and guidance being provided and we just need to pay attention.
The drawing you see here was influenced by the book I mentioned earlier, Angel Numbers. For months I continued to see 611 (still see it often) and I would read the message and think, “oh yes, I need to remember this.” One day I had an aha moment and realized that I was seeing the number over and over again because I needed to imprint this in to my conscious mind in order for my circumstances to improve. So I did what I always do when something feels really, really important. I sat down and drew my version of 611 and what it means to me. Doreen tells us in the Angel Book that 611 is a reminder that we must be careful in what we speak, think and write as it influences our reality. Since I drew this picture and started talking about it, I’ve seen a dramatic shift in my life. When I start to fall into old habits the number 611 will show up for me to remind me that I need to be careful of what I say, write and think. Give it a try and see how it works out for you.
There’s a lot more to be said about numbers and how they influence our lives but I thought this was a good introduction. If you find that you’re seeing the same number sequences often, I’d recommend you buy the book . The book can be found on Amazon or your favorite retailer.
You will begin to notice a significant shift in your life as you pay attention to what numbers are being shown to you. It’s well worth the time you’ll spend and after a short while you’ll wonder how you ever got by without knowing about the numbers and how they can assist you as you journey along your path.
