Enter the Wood Dragon

wood dragon year

Today is the start of the Chinese new year of wood dragon. I just have this feeling that it is going to be one of wildest years anyone alive today has experienced..

Fortune favors the bold ~ Virgil, Roman poet

It is said that great opportunities come to those who have courage, especially during dragon years. Without a doubt, a dragon year brings with it massive growth. What bold leaps of faith are you going to take this year? What dormant dreams are coming alive in you? Dragons can move mountains and traverse the skies across faraway lands. They are the keepers of ancient secrets.

In many Eastern traditions dragons are considered auspicious and luck bringing creatures. Royalty often had dragon statues around entryways to palaces. The earliest references to dragons date back 7,000 years ago to ancient China. Dragons were seen as benevolent creatures, and emperors in China were considered to be sons of the dragon lineage. This is a curious mythology that would be interesting to delve into sometime.

2024 is an 8 Numerology Year

In Vedic numerology, the number 8 is governed by Saturn. Yikes. This is big endings and beginnings energy. Saturn is the lord of underworld, and death. Lot of old chapters will be closing, to make room for something of epic proportions. A major collective shift is most likely coming to a head during this year. This could relate to A.I, the big pharma industry scams, and some kind of revealing of major corruption in politics.

Practices For The Year 2024

What can we do in such a high energy year to stay grounded? Doing any kind of practice that connects you with wood energy would be good, working with trees, plants, and getting your bare feet and hands into soil. Plant a garden! I am personally very drawn to moving deeper into the woods and playing hermit this year. Remains to be seen whether that will be possible or not.

However you choose to work with the dragon energy this year it’s going to be a ride, so buckle up!

Wishing you a powerful and insightful new year of the wood dragon!

p.s Stay tuned for some new reading offerings coming soon.

Love, Aleeiah

Letting Go of Achievement

The ego has an insatiable need to feel special. It will find endless ways to trick us into believing that we have to achieve things, in order for our lives to have value and meaning. This is the ego’s achievement trap mechanism. It will keep us running in circles until exhaustion. No achievement can ever be enough for the ego, because it lives in an imaginary realm, based in lack and separation.

Have you noticed that nearly everything around us is designed for the ego’s glorification? Societies are built for egos, not for souls. External achievements – money, objects, jobs, diplomas, etc. – are awarded but no value is assigned to spiritual growth. If you become successful and achieve external merits, your ego will grow larger while your true self sleeps. The thicker the veil of forgetfulness, the deeper asleep we fall. When we constantly chase the carrot of achievement, we don’t have the time to question the world around us, or inside us. Consequently, this also makes for obedient citizens.

“I was no longer needing to be special, because I was no longer so caught in my puny separateness that had to keep proving I was something. I was part of the universe, like a tree is, or like grass is, or like water is.” – Ram Dass

Shamanism + Quantum Physics

shamanism and quantum physics connection

Many seemingly paranormal experiences in the non-linear world of Shamanism seem to closely correlate with Quantum physics discoveries. Shamans have been told to appear in multiple locations at the same time by using their luminous “double” bodies, materialize objects out of thin air, shape-shift or become invisible, commune with animal and plant kingdom, perform remote healing, along with countless other mind-bending skills.

According to Quantum physics, past and future are not separate, location doesn’t exist, the world only comes into existence once observed, and this thing we call reality is one of many, possibly infinite, parallel dimensions.

Stories of Shamans journeying between dimensions have been recorded for centuries. When a Shaman enters a non-ordinary state of consciousness to retrieve information from the spirit worlds, could it be that he or she is able to glimpse into the many parallel dimensions of existence, theorized by Quantum physicists?

In the teachings of Shaman Don Juan Matus and the Toltecs, people only perceive a limited view of the multi-dimensional reality we live in, according to their readiness, and level of consciousness. In other words, people only see what they are capable of seeing. The definition of a Shaman is someone who has acquired an expanded vista and is able to see beyond the veils of time and space, for the purpose of bringing forth healing and greater balance for the planet. A Shaman’s work is to interpret and utilize the energy of the multi-dimensional Universe, in order to restore wholeness where needed.

Mind The Matter Please

“The world appears to you so overwhelmingly real because you think of it all the time; cease thinking of it and it will dissolve into thin mist.”

– Nisargadatta Maharaj

One of the most groundbreaking findings in Quantum mechanics is that if you split matter into smallest possible pieces (called atoms), particles stop behaving like solid matter. These subatomic particles can then appear either as waves, particles, or a mysterious cloud of “potentiality”, while magically unbound by any particular location. All subatomic particles possess this type of shape-shifting ability.

To make things even more puzzling, when an electron (subatomic particle with a negative electric charge) isn’t being observed, it appears as a wave. The only time it takes a physical form of a particle, is when it is being observed. This theory has been further expanded into views of “quantum probability”, that still eludes many modern day scientists.

If matter is not solid, nor bound by time or location, as Quantum research suggest, the adept skills Shamans use no longer seem impossible.

An important pioneer and one of the founding fathers of Quantum physics, Danish physicist Niels Bohr, who received a Nobel Prize in 1922, stated that if subatomic particles only exist when observed, they cannot be classified as independent objects, nor separate from the observer.

Dreaming The World Into Being..

Alberto Villoldo writes in his book Courageous Dreaming: How Shamans Dream the World Into Being”:

“Physicists understand that in the quantum world of the universe’s smallest elemental parts, nothing is “real” until it is observed. But quantum events do not occur in the laboratory only. They also happen inside our brain, on this page, and everywhere around us. When you observe any part of this dream, the great matrix of energy, you can change reality and alter the entire dream.”

Quantum physics research suggests that consciousness is affecting matter, as we observe it. This concept closely correlates with ancient shamanic teachings, and particularly, the use of ritual practice in shamanism. When a shaman performs a ritual, it is for the purpose of interacting with the elements of creation; communing with helpful spirits, bringing forth transformation, and eliciting positive outcomes for the future.

Both Shamans and Quantum physicists know that everything we do, say, or think, is altering the fabric of reality. When we truly understand the implications of “dreaming the world into being”, we have the potential to become responsible conscious creators, or dreamers.

In the Shamanic cosmology, shared by many indigenous cultures around the planet, we are all co-creators of a collective dream-experience we call “reality”. Shaman elders teach that if we dream our world into being with loving kindness, for the benefit of all, we are creating heaven on earth, but when we dream from a place of fear, jealousy, or envy, we increase suffering in the world. This view is also shared by a sect of Tibetan Buddhism that teaches conscious dreaming as a tool for awakening, also known as Tibetan dream yoga.

Return to Wholeness

“Ultimate Unity throughout the cosmos envelops and surrounds all dimensions, measurements, laws, and tendencies. It fulfills and completes all potentials that unfold in joy throughout the Universe.”

– Quran, verse 112.

Einstein’s theory of relativity proposed that time and space are not separate, but part of a unified whole he referred to as time-space continuum. David Bohm, one of the most important figures in Quantum research, further expanded Einstein’s vision by saying that everything in the Universe is part of a continuum – everything is One.

In the world view of Quantum physics, all matter is interconnected in an unseen web of mysterious, collective intelligence. When looking even further down the rabbit hole, there appears to be a deeper order behind our level of existence that gives birth to the whole Quantum soup we experience as reality. Physicist David Bohm referred to this level as “the implicate order”.

Similarly, Shamans of the Andes and Amazon believe that we are all connected in an infinite fabric of creation. If we believe that we are separate from everything and everyone else, we only create conflict and suffering. It is only when we become aware of the underlying interconnectedness that we can begin to truly access our dreaming power, and participate in raising the consciousness of the collective dream.

The Architect and The Weaver

“I am the weaver
I am the woven one
I am the dreamer
I am the dream..”

Lorna Kohler

Timelines are always shifting as new realities, aka programs, constantly emerge. Without our existence and participation, these realities would not exist. They are created for us, and by us. Realities are created by belief and participation in a belief. Mass realities are created by masses participating in a belief, repeatedly. The architect needs builders and the material of belief in order to create a reality. We create programs the architect designs. Both need each other, until the builder realizes its own power to create worlds. The builder has the same power as the architect, but she does not remember. This too, is a program designed for evolution.

Everything and everyone is playing its part in this intricate web. So we keep participating in myriad worlds and realities by what we strongly believe. When masses awaken and start to question the reality they are participating in, they revolt against ‘the architect’, and a new sub program is created. There are endless programs in existence. It is the cosmic play – Lila of God. What keeps the game so interesting, is that the players have forgotten they are part of the Creator, aka Architect. The battle of dark and light, ruler and the ruled, only exists for our evolution.

When the builder awakens to a yet higher level, she realizes that she is playing her own game. At this level, all need to fight the program falls away and suffering ceases. She realizes herself as the architect and the dance of duality loses its grip on her. Finally, she comes to know that she is the dreamer and the dream.

A Knowingness

In between pain and pleasure,

Sound and silence,

Movement and stillness..

Rests a Knowingness,

Aware of itself..

Unchanging and formless, always present.

It seeks no gain or recognition,

Abiding in emptiness.

Lessons from the Forest (in Finland)

Finnish forest

As a child I would take long walks in the woods of eastern Finland with my grandmother who was a master forager. She taught me to never take anything without giving back, no matter how small the offering. She said the forest had eyes and ears, and that every act was watched over by the faeries and forest guardians. This made total sense to me back then, as I grew up with many tales and myths of Scandinavian folklore, including faeries and elves. One time we were looking for mushrooms and came upon a rather large harvest. I was ready to start picking, but my grandmother told me to wait. She knelt down and pointed out that right next to the edible mushrooms was a nearly identical, poisonous variety. She said nature makes everything in pairs. Therefore, edible mushrooms have their twin counterpart that are highly poisonous and some, deadly. After demonstrating how to identify the poisonous mushrooms, we picked a small patch of good mushrooms, leaving plenty for the elves and faeries too.

My grandmother was a highly intuitive being; a mystic poet and an artist, who lived as a hermit in a small cabin that she build far away from society. She knew we were caught in a web of dreamlike existence, and understood that we were merely visitors here. In the Finnish culture, when you enter someone’s house as a visitor, you always bring a gift with you (usually pastries or coffee), and leave your shoes by the front door. In other words, while visiting the earth we should be on our best behavior, give back, and know that every act is accounted for.

Everything has its opposite in this earthly realm that is bound by laws of duality. The poison is right next to the cure. The sun arises from the darkness. We only know hot because of cold.. To experience pleasure one must also experience pain. Every phenomena on earth has its dual nature, as do we. You could say that the earth is a school for learning how to find balance in duality.

Kiitos Mummi. 🙏

How to Find Your Purpose

Life Purpose

I have been an existential detective all my life. When other kids were playing with their dolls, I was out there roaming every corner of the playground alone, in search of meaning for this madness. Then I’d retreat in my room and write about it in this little blue plastic covered diary I had. I would frequently ask adults baffling questions they had no answers for, such as: Where did I come from before I was born? Frustrated of not receiving clear answers I would run to the forest and spend hours wandering the woods alone. In silence I felt more connected to truth. Maybe the trees, wind, or animals in the forest would know more, I thought. Then I began living in old libraries in Europe and going through books which only caused more confusion. Books didn’t know. They were only asking more questions. The biggest frustration in my life was not remembering my purpose. Therefore, I became an existential detective.

I spent a few decades in the rat race going through various jobs and careers, chasing things that come and go, like most people. But underneath the question still remained: why am I here? Only in the moments of total breakdown and near death have I gained some momentary clarity. When I nearly lost my life, first at thirteen years old when I overdosed on drugs, and then again in my thirties contracting a deadly tropical disease in Mexico, the mystery of purpose came through in a flash. And guess what that purpose was? It was a feeling of indescribable LOVE. When everything else is gone, all that remains is this radiance of love. Divine love is the all pervading truth of our being and where we come from. It cannot be simulated by anything. It is a direct experience. And this is the paradoxical answer I had been searching for all my life.

Have you ever walked a labyrinth? You know when you walk through the whole thing and think you’ve found the way out, but you’ve only arrived back at the beginning? This is somewhat of a metaphor for how your purpose will find you. It’s not logical and cannot be solved by intellect – it only arises from heart-knowing, and getting lost repeatedly. The labyrinth tricks you in thinking there’s a logical solution. But the only true solution is to return to the true Self. Rupert Spira had a beautiful way of wording this when he said: “When everything that can be let go of is let go of, what remains is what we desire above all else”. Your ultimate purpose arrives when you’ve given up everything else. It comes from a place of surrender. Giving up control and how you think your life should unfold leads the way. The seeming failures and misfortunes in life are actually designed to awaken us, and deepen our surrender, so purpose can eventually shine through.

When I write or deliver readings, I feel more connected to source, and with universal intelligence, and this feeds my purpose which is to be a kind of a spiritual guidance counselor. Another pointer to help you determine if you’re expressing your purpose is this: if what you do makes your soul feel alive, nourished and energized, you are in tune with your purpose. If what you do makes you feel drained and meaningless, you are out of tune. Purpose is like a battery that charges you every time you use it. It makes you feel complete and empowered.

Something else I’ve learned about purpose is that you are always headed towards it. You may be taking a detour, training while getting ready to express more of your purpose, but you are always on course. In other words, your purpose will fulfill itself whether you know what it is or not. Spirit doesn’t need to know its purpose. The spirit is the purpose. The mind wants to know because it cannot remember.

May You Recognize…

May you recognize in your life the presence,
power, and light of your soul.

May you realize that you are never alone,
that your soul in its brightness and belonging
connects you intimately with the rhythm of
the universe.

May you have respect for your individuality
and difference.

May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,
that behind the façade of your life,
there is something beautiful and eternal happening.

Holographic DNA upgrade

Imagine that your DNA exists inside your mind’s eye. You can enter inside a room or a brilliant temple of light, if you wish, that contains the hologram of your DNA. You can picture it as a spiral of light, or a beautiful vortex, or even a spiraling staircase. Once you connect to the channel of your DNA, and can feel it pulsing inside you, then you are ready to work. Summon your higher self/Oversoul/God self, and ask for the dormant DNA to be gently reawakened and activated again. There may be layers of protection or gatekeepers that were put in place, but ask for these to be bypassed or removed, by the power of your soul and GOD/SPIRIT THAT I AM. See and feel your dormant DNA strands coming alive again, spinning and spiraling in joy, surrounded by light, straight from the source of all that is. You can then request a protective energy or a guardian being to be placed around your holographic DNA, that prevents any further tampering that does not serve your evolution. Do this as often as you like, to reinforce the activation. The more you do it, the stronger the effect.

Know that inside your DNA are many hidden doors that lead to abilities and channels that were once active, eons ago. These doorways were manipulated and deactivated by someone else. They were shut down to the extend that we forgot about them. HU-mans were meant to be much more than we are now. The divine original blueprint that human race was seeded with, was that of avatar-like beings who were free. The current condition of humanity is a curtailed version; many living unaware of their own potential, asleep, and in a controlled world that is nothing but free. We exist in a time when it has become crucial to our survival to reactivate our ancient, dormant DNA. Your DNA is a vessel and a vehicle of unimaginable riches.

There is a mass global movement happening at this time, sweeping over the planet, attempting to shut down further strands of the new human DNA that have been emerging and re-awakening for quite some time now. Therefore, it is important for us to enter inside our own holographic DNA and reactive it.

Many humans on the planet have chosen to not live up to their fullest potential at this time, and are willingly allowing the manipulation of their DNA. Those few that choose otherwise will be living on the perimeters of society. Their ability to travel and participate in many social activities will be highly limited via traditional means. But new modes of travel will soon emerge and some movement will be restored. There is hope and a new world that is emerging. But we have to co-create it, from within.

Rise up, on the ladder of your own DNA!

Yantras = Ancient Instruments for Evolution

Yantras are geometric forms of deities, planets, and principles of spiritual evolution, deriving from the ancient Tantric traditions of India. The earliest Yantras discovered date back at least 11,000 years.

Western dictionary definition for a Yantra is “an auspicious diagram used in meditation to help focus the mind“. The word Yantra roughly translated means ‘a vehicle‘ or ‘an instrument‘.

Yantras were originally created as vehicles for spiritual evolution, and liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth.

While mantras are verbal remedies used for healing and transformation, Yantras can be seen as their visual counterparts. For example, chanting a Lakshmi mantra may be used to attract prosperity into one’s life. A Lakshmi (Sri) Yantra may do the same thing. Yantras only use beneficial symbols that bring healing and help raise spiritual awareness. The shapes within Yantras are symbols that correspond to states of evolved human consciousness.

Tuning in with a Yantra opens the doorway to working with the deity and spiritual principle the Yantra represents. The Yantra then becomes an energetic portal that connects you with the creative forces of the Universe.

How to use Yantras

Sri Yantra painting by by Aleeiah available on Etsy.

Yantras are most powerful when meditated upon consistently for at least 7 days. This imprints the energy pattern of the Yantra into the conscious and subconscious mind. Start by focusing on the central point within the Yantra and allow your eyes to naturally adjust to the shape without removing your gaze from the Yantra. It is recommended to do this meditation for 15-30 minutes daily. You may also wish to chant a mantra corresponding to the Yantra you are working with.

Focusing on a Yantra helps calm the mind which makes it easier to focus your energy toward manifesting your desired outcome, be it healing, prosperity, a new relationship, or deepening your spiritual practice. In advanced stages of meditation with a Yantra it is possible to feel a merging in with the shape, or “becoming the Yantra itself”. The physical image of the Yantra is then no longer necessary, as one can evoke the energy of the Yantra and its powers within.

Yantras may also be used to balance the energy of a space, and to bring forth a host of beneficial effects. Vedic astrologers will often prescribe planetary Yantras as remedies for healing difficult planetary aspects in one’s birth chart, and inviting in more balanced and positive energy.

In the Hindu culture, Yantras are worshiped in puja ceremonies, with elaborate offerings of food, incense, mantra, and ritual protocol.

How to choose a Yantra

While Vedic Astrologers will often prescribe Yantras as remedies for appeasing challenging planetary aspects in one’s natal chart, the simplest way for westerners is to choose a Yantra based on intuition. If you feel drawn to a certain Yantra, then work with it. Most likely it is something you need. Secondly, you can choose a Yantra based on what you’re looking to create or bring into your life.

The Great Galactic Turning Point

We are in the midst of a massive evolutionary wave on the planet. There is a planetary alignment taking place in the heavens this year that has not happened in hundreds of years. This event is part of earth’s cyclical ascension program. Because you are here now, you knew this was coming and accepted the challenge to evolve faster than ever before.

If you have been living in a way that is not in alignment with the truth of who you are on a soul level, that is now being corrected. You are being re-tuned. The ego will kick and scream because it’s not a comfortable process. All that is redundant will peel away, and for some this happens almost overnight. We are forced to learn how to find new healthier resources, and live in respect of earth and its blessings. We are learning to restore right relationship with our inner and outer planes on earth. You can best assist this peeling process by going into surrender and witness mode more often. Let whatever goes, go.

Life on earth is a multi-dimensional boarding school. We are in here with all the different grades and classrooms, from kindergarten to realized beings. Naturally, chaos ensues. What is happening on the planet now is an accelerated physical-mental-emotional-energetic purification. This is a natural process of ascension, i.e going up in vibration. It is both fun and terrifying at times. But look beyond the turmoil and panic, and realize it is a temporary shedding process of dense energy. The current events that have been unfolding, including this plandemic and controlled economic collapse, are ancient smoke and mirror of politics. It is curiously timed with this galactic awakening call. If you are already aware you will understand that now is the time to make the best of this party. It is time to become who you really are.

When enough hearts awaken on the planet, a holographic grid is created that helps awaken the rest of humanity. This is why it is of utmost importance to meditate and do practices that help us be heart centered now. Sending your gratitude to the core of earth raises the vibration of the planet. Honor the earth for carrying you, for she is a living, breathing, energetic being. The rays of the sun are extra potent at this time in raising our vibration. Make sure you get at least 30 minutes of sun daily, more is better. This is designed to help your cells adapt to the new level of energy beaming at us. Connect with the earth with your bare skin while you are out and breathe deeply with gratitude. Nothing else is needed. Your body knows what to do. You can assist the process at this time by eating less and drinking more liquids. Eat foods that are not dense or hard to digest, avoid eating meat at this time.

These are high evolutionary times! Your light is needed now more than ever before in our lifetime. No more excuses for hiding or sharing your truth. If you are reading this article take it as a sign: you are being activated to your greater mission. Share your gifts. Your voice matters. Help raise the collective vibration on earth.

Wishing you abundant health and great awakenings!

The Heart Contains All

Amidst recent heartbreak and despair, I prayed for some light to come through.. a higher vision, an understanding for why I was still undergoing so much suffering. Several months had passed since a tragic breakup but I felt unable to let go of the lingering pain of loss. It seemed like many lifetimes of suffering had coalesced into one, dismantling my life without a warning.

The answer came through a vivid dream. I was taken inside the heart and saw that nobody had ever left. All was happening simultaneously, beyond time.. like actors gliding through empty air, and the emptiness contained all. The suffering is a tool, although ultimately an illusion, created to help us remember that this play isn’t real. Inside the heart, all was one, and we were each other, throughout many lifetimes, never apart. There was nobody to abandon. No heartbreak and no pain. Only tremendous compassion and understanding that transcended all forms of suffering. The heart was all-knowing. There was nothing to attain, nothing to grasp. We were not two people hurting each other, but one omniscient being experiencing itself through many forms and costumes, like actors in a play.

As soon as I was outside the heart again, things would appear separate, and thoughts of suffering would emerge. The dimension of duality we live in most of the time, is a game of pain and pleasure, endlessly alternating.. but this is not the ultimate reality. There is a higher dimension, and this is where the heart lives, beyond all pain and pleasure. The experiences we take to be love on this holodeck, are nothing but tiny glimpses into the realm that is actually, love.

Did you know that you can go inside your heart, and it is also the heart of all — one cosmic heart?

Within this unconditional, non dual realm of love, there is no pain, no separation, no coming or going, and no identity. Thus, the heart cannot break. It is empty but contains ALL.

On What Remains..

“You possess only whatever will not be lost in a shipwreck.” Al-Ghazali.

Year after year we fulfill one desire after another, until we come to know: there is no satisfaction in fulfilling endless desires. Nothing in this fleeting world is ever enough. Desires fade. How to achieve happiness if not by fulfilling desires?

You have been walking around the labyrinth of God so many times you have forgotten your true name and where you came from. Now it’s a puzzle to find your way back. But there is no end to the labyrinth, it leads back to beginning.

This much I know: anything that comes or goes is not who you are. Desires are hollow like seashells. People appear, stay for a while, then move on. Relationships are not you either. We cannot build a foundation on anything that comes or goes. The only true investment is finding your true nature. Who is writing this? Who is reading? The identities, stories, jobs, possessions, achievements, information you accrue, who you were yesterday.. all these things will not remain.

But time is running out.. I must have this or that before I leave this plane of existence. Time is another game on earth that has no true identity. Beyond this fleeting form is formlessness, timelessness – a sea of nothingness from where everything arises and falls.

You have come here for a reason and that reason is, to find out what remains.

Meaning of Master Number 22

Master numbers (11, 22, 33, 44, etc.) are double digits that are more charged and powerful than single digits. They point towards higher learning and spiritual mastery. More general information about master numbers can be found HERE.

22 is the number of the master architect, as well as peace and balance. It calls for building your dreams through unconditional service to others. 22 is considered to be the most influential number, and one with the most potential for achievement in the world. It is a number oriented towards both material and spiritual fulfillment.

22 is the ancient numerical value for a circle and therefore signifies completion; the zero point, the beginning and the end. Something significant will come to fruition under the vibration of 22. It could be a great series of art, a musical symphony, a new system of learning, etc. Success and attainment of the seemingly impossible becomes a reality with the master number 22. Great wealth can accrue under the vibration of 22 as well, especially when material resources are harnessed with spiritual insight. Working for selfish motives or personal gain will not work under the vibration of 22, as this number is a teacher of the moral principle of service to others.


People with this master number in their charts are dream builders and spiritual architects who have incarnated to not only master something in their own lives, but to leave a legacy behind to benefit the masses. This kind of task can be daunting at times, and when 22 seems overbearing, the vibration can be experienced as its root number 4 – a much easier and more practical energy. The goal of number 4 relates to building in the material world, service, and success through hard work and persistence, whereas 22 wants to be a worldwide influence through lofty ideals and dreams built with co-operation and assistance from others. People with number 22 as one of their core numbers are philanthropists who aim to build a better world for all. Intuition, diplomacy, patience, balance, and compassion must be highly developed before 22 can realize and live up to its fullest potential. Ultimately, the master number 22 leads to awakening of the Divine love within.

Number 2

The number 2 on its own stands for relationships and balance. It is a feminine number of the peacemaker and indicates evolution primarily through relationship work. It also represents duality; male and female, the sun and moon, pain and pleasure. The goal of number 2 is to achieve harmony through relationship, and find peace through perfecting the art of balance. You can also find the master number 22 to be an amplification of the properties of 2.

Are you seeing a lot of 22?

It is time to master your reality! 22 can be a call to engineer your highest vision into reality. Because 22 totals to a 4, which represents the earth, the four corners of a building, and the 4 dimensions, it points towards material manifestation of some kind, and building of your dreams. Seeing a lot of 22 can also be a reminder from the universe to work on partnership and relationship matters.

Within 22 underlie the vibrations of numbers 4 (2+2=4) and 11 (22 /:  2 = 11). 22 is a higher octave of the number 11 – the number of the master intuitive. 4 acts as the grounding force behind these two master numbers, helping to anchor in and bring these two higher spiritual vibrations down to earth, and into reality.

Your Name Matters

“Nomen est omen” (Latin for name is an omen.)

Every letter, every word, and every name has a vibration, and we decode vibration via numbers. Every time you sign your name, or say your name, you leave a trace of your vibration. The name you were given at birth is especially revealing. Some call it the destiny number.  My favorite interpretation of destiny is: 75% karma and 25% free will. What this means in the context of your name, is that you are not entirely locked in to the vibration of your birth name. Many change their name or use nicknames. This in turn affects your energetic blueprint, and will certainly affect your life.

What if the current name you chose to use is a difficult vibration? It may mean you that have to work twice as hard to achieve your goals, make money, and be successful in what you do. Yes, you can sometimes overwrite challenging vibrations with your other numbers and free will, but it is hard work. Kind of like a fish swimming upstream all its life. Let’s say for example that your birth name totals to a master number, such as 22. This is a very powerful vibration that has the potential to not only accrue wealth, but affect masses of people. If you shorten your name and use a nickname instead, that vibrates to a less powerful frequency such as 4, you are diminishing your impact in the world, and creating unnecessary obstacles.

As a numerologist, one of my favorite amusements is to look at names of big companies, or famous people and calculate their numbers. Nearly every major company name that has had worldwide impact, has a potent number. Similarly, majority of world leaders have a name which vibrates to a power number.

Let’s decode some big names for fun!

Dalai Lama = 9

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela = 9

Edgar Cayce = 9

9 is the number of: the humanitarian, wisdom, unconditional love, service, the healer, and teacher. It is also the number of completing a karmic cycle – very fitting for these souls.

Barack Hussein Obama = 1

John Winston Lennon = 1

Sudhamani Idamannel (Hugging saint Amma’s birth name) = 1

Maruti Shivrampant Kambli (Nisargadatta Maharaj’s birth name) = 1

1 is the number of: leadership, legacy, success, innovation, front-runner, and the pioneer. This number is destined for fame and making a big mark in the world.

Many spiritual leaders, famous musicians, and politicians have names that total to a 1 or 9. Both numbers vibrate to worldwide success, massive influence, and leaving a legacy.

How about some big company names?

Microsoft = 1

Pepsi = 11

Mercedes Benz = 11

11 is a master number which can present some challenge but nevertheless attracts attention, leadership, and fame. All master numbers accentuate the base number vibration. As you can see from previous examples, 1 is a highly successful leadership vibration on its own. And 11 is 1 on steroids.

Changing your name is a more complex matter than simply choosing a number that is generally fortunate and powerful. It all depends what you are here to do, what you lessons are, and what your other numbers are. For example, if you choose a new name with a number that has nothing to do with your purpose, you are adding in a new vibration that may not serve your journey.

When I do a Numerology Reading, I look at all the different numbers in your chart, besides the total vibration of your name. There are many other numbers to consider, even the ones that are absent, called “karmic lesson numbers”. I then look at patterns and what all these numbers are doing together in your chart. If you are considering changing your name, and want to know how it will affect your life and the type of experiences you will draw in as a result, consider a Numerology Blueprint Reading. I am happy to decode your name and analyze any potential name change you are considering.
