Lately, I have been seeing the number one quite frequently. I thought to look it up and this is what I found.
111: Wakeup call.
1:11 or 11:11 is certainly a magical sign. In fact, The Magician card is number 1 in the major arcana of the tarot. When you see repeating 1s it’s like a wakeup call from the mystical realm. Look around and really pay attention to where you are and who you’re with. This is a cosmic confirmation that you’re moving in the right direction. There’s further to go as 1 is the first step, but you can be assured that you are on your path—and things will evolve so you won’t stop here.
The first house of the zodiac is all about self-expression. As Shakespeare famously quipped, “To thine own self be true.” You might see 1:11 when you’re feeling totally in the zone or just rocked it on the creativity or personal expression front. You’re getting the thumbs up to just be yourself and let your light and magic shine.
Eleven is a master number in numerology, and connotes a spiritual path. Many believe that 11:11 is a confirmation that you are a light worker or earth angel, here to uplift human consciousness and restore a sense of oneness and harmony to the world. You are a bridge, someone who can bring together people from disparate factions of society, or weave together opposing energies into a beautiful blend. As above, so below. Without darkness there can’t be light. You are strong enough to hold paradoxes and understand that we are all dual in nature, yet singular at the same time. - ASTROSTYLE.COM
Sometimes I see certain numbers repeatedly, previously it was 5's (which after I googled through several sites, found it meant big changes were on it's way.) The blurb above was the first site that came up when I searched for the meaning of number 1. Considering I have decided to start my blog in hopes to raise awareness regarding various issues, it was yet another sign that I may just be on the right path.
Sometimes a little voice in our head pops up and asks us questions or nudge us to do something. These are the moments that you must really take the time to listen to yourself. Listen to your intuition.
I have a full time job that is stable, I work with some amazing people, have a great Manager and make pretty decent coin. Yet, I feel like there is something missing. This feeling had been growing more and more each day.
I started thinking about all of the things that I enjoy and how I could incorporate them more into my life. As I was deep in thought, I started thinking of my past experiences. I thought of the time I was a teenager and felt completely alone. I thought of the time I was couch surfing just so I had a roof over my head. I thought of when I was running the streets with the wrong kind of people. I thought of when I felt stuck in a domestic violence relationship. I thought of the times I had been abused. I thought of when I hadn't eaten for weeks and could barely afford to survive. An overwhelming emotion of sadness came over me. I felt a pain in my chest.
Then a voice prompted me to think of how far I had come and where I was now. I took a deep breath in and gave thanks for my life now. I'm independent, live in a gorgeous apartment, have some amazing friends and family around me, had the opportunity to see more of the world and build some amazingly blessed memories while meeting some beautiful souls. Life for me, is in fact pretty unbelievable. This made me smile.
I then started thinking of other people and what they could be going through at this very moment. I thought of the teenagers that lived on the streets. I thought of the women that had been or are currently getting sexually abused. I thought of people that felt trapped in domestic violent relationships. I thought of the ones that were struggling with various type of emotional or body issues. I thought of the children and families living in a country filled with war, hiding, running and watching their loved ones get murdered. The feeling of sadness rushed over me again. I wanted to cry. The emotion was so intense. I couldn't even begin to imagine that there were still so many people out there living in so much pain. What I had been through was nothing in comparison to so many others.
I can't change the world, I am only one person. But what can I do to help make a difference? What if I do a little to contribute towards helping others, surely it could mean something to someone out there. This is when the idea came to me. I wanted to be able to share some of my experiences and lessons that I have learnt along the way. Some are quite positive, some not so much. I still yet have so much more to learn. But along the way, I wanted to be able to encourage and inspire.
There could be a person out there reading a certain blog and maybe at that time they can relate. Maybe it can help them. Just maybe it can inspire them to see that life doesn't have to be so tough. We are stronger than we think. Maybe hearing a different perspective can help them. What if I can turn all of my experiences, especially the most painful ones into something that can help others? I am not a writer, I have never studied to write. My grammar may not be perfect, I may even write about things that don't make sense to some. What I am is someone that wants to give back to the world. Even if I may never meet or speak to you. Maybe, just maybe, I can make a difference in someone's life.
This is honestly, the first time in my life that I feel I am truly following my passion. "Follow your Bliss". I am not sure where I am headed and I am not sure if I will fail. I just know that it feels right. I know that I want to be able to take a step in the direction where I can contribute to others. Even if it is just a tiny bit.
The universe has funny ways of communicating with us. If you keep seeing certain numbers, don't be afraid to look up what they mean. You could be suprised how uncanny the messages are aligned with your life.
