What’s in a number?

What’s in a number?

So I’m laying in the C-section recovery room, a bit delirious, a bit groggy, and totally shocked, trying to form words around whether or not the doctors kept my placenta when my husband seemingly out of the blue, says, “Whoa.  Check this out…

Birth Date: 12th

Time: 2:01

Weight: 2 lbs 1 oz

Length: 14.1 inches (1 and 2 + 2) – strangely they originally calculated her length at 12.1 inches (no freaking joke)

We had no idea at this point what would end up happen in this world with our daughter but this should have been a big ole fat WooWoo clue.  There was something a bit perplexing about her numbers.

Like, really…a whole heck of a lot of 1’s and 2’s. Five 2’s and four 1’s to be exact.

Recently, as in 6 days ago when I started this post, I decided to do a little research into numerology.  And get this: we’ve got more 1’s people.

Her Full Name or Destiny Number = 1

Her Life Path Number (based on her birth date) = 1

“Numerology 1: As the first of all numbers, 1’s symbolism is that of the Initiating Force, the Monad.  Number 1 is the keynote to uniting humankind with each other, Spirit Guides, the Gods, and the other realms.”

I actually had to read that a couple of times because it was really dense spiritually for me.  Knowing that her Life Path Number is to unite us…well, if you’ve ever met her…you’d probably say, “Well of course that’s her life path.”  She exudes this force that brings people together.  I watch her orchestrate happenings.  She energetically calls people into her space.  Strangers approach us to make comments about her eyes and her energy.  She certainly is a 1.

Here’s another quote from the same website (see below)…”Life Path 1 – Those who walk a Life Path with Number 1 have an inner zeal that pushes them to constantly climb towards goals others think unreachable.  1 gives birth to all other numbers.  Its energy is that of the Master Creator.”

In the Tarot, 1 is associated with The Magician card…”A mover and shaker, The Magician knows deep down they can change the world and truly make a difference.  Having The Magician vibrating with the energy of the Number 1 means that they can be fantastic facilitators for edgy new beginnings that nearly seem, well, magical!”

So now let me blow your mind a bit more…, I came upon this statement:

Many people assume that the day and time we were born determines our fate. Truth is the opposite – we determined when we would be born, before we were born, knowing deep in our soul the right mathematical day and time to come to this world. We determined our fate first and then the corresponding day and time. This determined our personal numerology including our life path number and destiny number.ª

Let’s really think about this…go with me for a second, or a minute.  She chose the life she lives.  Everything physically that makes her a bit atypical…well, she knew what she was getting into.  We all did.  We chose our life BEFORE we ever came in…if we determine “our fate first” then everything we are experiencing, every bit of the life we lead, was something we agreed to first.  I FREAKING LOVE THIS!!  It means no complaining.  It means that the life we are living is the very best life for us because I do believe we were a lot smarter before coming in and wouldn’t agree to something we couldn’t handle.

Now, you might not believe in fate (and I personally don’t like using that word…sounds way too permanent) but I do believe that we made a universal contract before we dropped into our beings.  We picked the things we wanted to experience.  I don’t think we picked every little detail which is why the word fate doesn’t sit well with me but, I do believe we pick our patterns.  We pick our parents and siblings.  We pick the overall themes of our life so that we can become better selves, more higher-evolved “cell-ves”.

So…she PICKED ME and I PICKED HER.  Period.  Sometimes it’s easy for me to forgot this (for example in music class on Friday when I started crying because I was feeling sorry for myself rather than her…just an example :-)).

I am so very blessed to have this magical (#1) lady in my life.  And…deep breath…before this whole thing even got started, we both knew what we were getting into.  Poor kid.

Note, I do plan on throwing this in her face when she is a bratty, smart talking tweener complaining about me…”Daughter of mine, you totally knew what you were getting into when you chose me.  Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha.”  Ok, I won’t throw it in her face but I guarantee I’ll think it…and truth be told, it’ll probably slip out.

Oh, so I am going to just take it up another WooWoo notch…this MaMa is a Life Path 1 as well.  Yes…you read that right…this daughter actually paired herself up with a Mama 1.

Watch out world!!!!!!!  Here we come.

Loving our life…

Just in case you wanna go figure out your numbers…
