Anyone want to have a numbers discussion? Maybe take your mind off of broken hearts for a bit. Heartbreak gets boring after a while!
I do not really subscribe to numerology, but it is hard for me to deny the possibility of repetitive numbers holding some meaning in our lives.
For me, I have always been drawn to the numbers 77, 777, 88, and 888, but aside from using them as parts of my digital passwords they have not played any significant part in my life that I can recall.
However, a dozen or so years ago I repeatedly started seeing 911 everywhere. This coincided with dating an angelic like person who’s birthday was on 9-11 and also when I first started experiencing anxiety attacks.
I think it lasted for about a year or so and then subsided, along with the thinking that 9-11 was very Angel-like (aside from her physical beauty)!
Then this year, the noticing of specific number sequences came back on a whole new level. On 3-21, I started seeing 11, 22, 1111, 1112 and 1234 everywhere. It has not subsided since and often gets quite annoying. I try to avoid looking at the clock, but the numbers find me in other places. Addresses, License plates, Hotel rooms, etc. A couple weeks ago 47 joined the mix and now I can not stop seeing it everywhere as well. Today I was listening to one of my favorite songs for the first time in a long time. The song mentioned ‘Qumran,’ a word I did not know the meaning of. I looked it up and found out that it refers to the site at which the dead sea scrolls were discovered (in 1947). Part of these scrolls included a complete manuscript of ‘The Book of Enoch’ – which I found strange because I had been thinking about ordering a translation for a couple weeks now (right around when I first started seeing 47). I have been reading quite a bit about reincarnation and further studying the possibility that references of reincarnation in the Bible were removed by the early Roman Catholic Church, of which did not find the belief useful for controlling people via Religion. References to ‘The Book of Enoch’ kept coming up during my research, so I think I will go ahead and order it.
Anyways, I am a fairly grounded person and generally lean more towards scientific logic rather mysticism/spirituality to explain the inexplicable. As such, the Baader Meinhof Phenomenon explanation makes more since to me than Carl Jung’s synchronicity theory. However, I have not read his book regarding the subject and always try to keep an open mind. It is fun to imagine we are on some cosmic treasure hunt guided by signs from the Universe/Divine, but I don’t really have any concrete evidence to support this.
Does anyone else see repetitive numbers? Theories on what they mean and if they have played any significant part in your life?
