WEEK 38 is the 9th week in a 10 week cycle in which all the week numbers begin with 3. We often have the most to learn as a cycle comes to an end – and there is a LOT to learn about 3 in the next two weeks. This week’s combination of 3 and 8 sheds light on what we most need to see and understand (whatever that turns out to be).
38 gives us 11, the number of illumination and inspiration. Both 3 and 8 are the principle numbers of creativity and making things happen – and 11 has intuitive and inventive qualities that are uniquely its own.
3 represents PEOPLE, communication, expression, creativity, friends, joy, entertainment, sport, media, social-media, social interaction, words, images, optimism, drama, humor, color, sound, appearance, illusion, shallowness, hearsay, gossip, and envy.
8 is the number of POWER in all its forms, including economic, political, and military matters. 8 is an enforcing energy, which is often used by bullies and tyrants to make themselves feel powerful. 8 is utilized to maintain control over the material world, which is an unnatural use of this energy, the true purpose of which is to protect nature. 8 is the number of abundance, resources, and resourcefulness. Human beings are not separate from nature. Our very existence is part of the natural process.
8 is the number of prosperity. It incorporates existing resources to increase function and value. All too often, the business world incorporates existing resources to simply increase profit. Week 38 sheds light on the natural environment and the devastating effect of this unchecked industrial system.
When 3 and 8 meet, communications are loud and insistent, but not always logical. People go to great lengths to get a point across, whether there is a valid point to be made or not.
Like never before, we are seeing the terrible suffering caused by people imposing their power over other people. This has always been the case, but the extent of the cruelty has become more blatant. Yes, empathy and love are spreading among humanity, but the sheer hatred out there is more widespread than ever. This is why we must be more aware of the hate – ill feeling – that we ourselves are holding inside but are denying.
Hate is not an emotion, but the result of emotions that have become infected by indifference and lack of love. The extremes of hate are emerging all over the world in the form of nationalism (nazi-ism) and authoritarianism – and we all hold some hatred inside. We might not call it hatred, but that’s what it is when we say, I can’t stand that”, or “I detest this person“. Emotions are felt in varying degrees, and hate follows that pattern too.
The evolutionary process of emotional healing applies to all of us and is the only means of relieving ourselves of old sadness, grief, unresolved dispute and anger, lingering fears, and the inability to move out of our comfort zones and venture more deeply into life. This week’s 3 8 11 vibration can help us to IMAGINE alternatives.
88 years ago, on 26 October, 1929, a 3 day in the world (8+1+3=1+2=3), in an interview with The Saturday Evening Post, Albert Einstein said:
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, whereas imagination encircles the world.”
While knowledge is essential, imagination enables us to go beyond what we already know, so that new knowledge can form. The POWER of PEOPLE also consists of the ability to learn new things. Being able to visualize POTENTIAL is vital to our evolution. 3 provides the OPTIMISM that can carry us through difficult, mind-bending, and heart-breaking times like these. 8 provides self-empowerment, essential information, and unpretentious confidence.
The inner condition of humanity is projected into the outer world. The world stage is a reflection of ourselves. 3 is the number of the arts – and inner communication (feelings and thoughts), is where art – and imagination – begin.
Our emotions are messages we send to ourselves. But because we are so unfamiliar with the interaction of emotion with the mind and biological body, this energy is easily manipulated by outside forces. In the chillingly competitive race to influence the masses, we are controlled by our emotions, a process that the system refers to as the ‘battle for hearts and minds’.
Emotion is the WILL of life. The nature of the WILL is to be FREE. From the highest joy to the depths of despair – the entire emotional range is a measure of how free – or un-free – we are. Free Will is the next evolutionary step in the human journey, which is why the current system is doing everything it can to keep the feminine down, numb our feelings, and dumb down our minds. Emotion is our honesty, and as we evolve, we are learning to be honest with ourselves. Free Will begins with the freedom to express outwardly what we feel inwardly. This is what it means to live from the ‘inside out’. Expression is what propels us.
In the transparency of the 2000s, we are able to see the driving force behind this capitalistic system – which is based on winning and losing. No wonder so many believe that life is just a ‘game’.
The white male claims superiority by eliminating competition. But isn’t competition what capitalism is all about? No. Capitalism wants to destroy the competition and reign supreme – which is why the issues of white supremacy – and male supremacy – are so prevalent. The self-destructive class system is falling apart under the weight of its own imbalance, hypocrisy, and denials.
It is often said, and usually with good intent, that “there is only one race – the human race”, but this is a misunderstanding. There is no “race” at all. A race is a contest, a competition, which keeps us divided and constantly striving to outdo each other. We are NOT the human “race”. Each ONE of us is a unique individual HUMAN BEING. Each of us is 1. And together we are 1. It is imperative that we learn this fundamental lesson of the 1 energy as we make our way further into the 2000s. If not, a race war (which is what ALL wars are) could be instigated just to keep the system – the human ‘race’ – going.
An important characteristic of 3 is that it helps information to spread. This is why 3 is known as the number of gossip, hearsay, and rumor. 3 also helps us to put our knowledge, thoughts, and feelings, into words that we ourselves can understand – which then spreads to others – for better or worse. 11 will bring to light a lot of hypocrisy and dishonesty this week, but we can expect to be enlightened and inspired, too. As we evolve emotionally and intellectually, we express ourselves from the heart which then speaks to the hearts of others.
3 can be very distracting – as reflected in the entertainment industry, the news, the internet, and the creative world in general. But when we allow ourselves to focus in 3, we can create amazing things which apply to all aspects of life, not just the arts. You may want to create a business, a solid relationship, a situation, a home, or even an atmosphere. Or a book, a painting, or anything you feel aligned with and dedicated to. There is a creative way and a destructive way in all the decisions we make.
8 also amplifies the power of 3 by providing opportunity. 8 is a metaphysical magnet – the material world’s great attracter. 8 is a feminine number – the number of abundance, just as Mother Earth herself provides absolutely everything we have. 11 is the number of LIGHT – illumination – and regardless of where we live, we are likely to see some serious light being shed where we were previously kept in the dark.
September’s 9 energy is amplifying everything right now, boosted by the double-10 energy that comes from the 9th month of a 10/1 year. 9 (the number of endings and conclusions) takes us back to the past so we can learn what we failed to learn back then, while 1 brings us forward in direct proportion to our ability to learn. A massive increase of consciousness is forming as a result, along with the frustration of what seems like such SLOW progress. Frustration is a mix of fear and anger, and is quite natural under these circumstances.
Our biological bodies are the instrument through which the emotional range (magnetism) expresses itself. Feelings are the sensations created when emotion meets body. The mind (electricity) then interprets what the emotions are conveying (depending on how open the mind is to receiving the physical feelings).
The emotional range is our inner radar. Don’t let the need for ‘certainty’ shut it down. Remember that awareness of reality is our best safety net.
