The Power of a Magic Number
The Power of a Magic Number
I guess it was easy to see why Pili wanted me to write a blog entry for today. I love numerology and 11:11 is a favorite number and part of the story of my adulthood. November 11th is for me a special day of introspection and manifestation every year. This year is even more special. But let's start from the beginning. In Numerology, 11 is a Master Number. It’s the number of unique creation, authentic expression, and rapid manifestation. It contains the pioneering ignition spark of the number 1, and the soothing, sensitive, psychic gifts of the number 2. In combination, the Master Number 11 holds the vibration of ascension. If you look at the shape of the Number 11, it represents two pillars, a gateway that opens a direct portal between divine inspiration and grounded manifestation. I call it the threshold of the soul. The place where the soul meets the body.
There was a particularly bad episode about 15 years ago when I had just broken up with my partner at the time. We had years together and the separation came as a total surprise to me. My heart was broken, and it hurt so much for a long time. In the midst of that sorrow, I wanted to make sure it never happened to me ever again. So, I started working to improve myself. Not only did I get back in shape and start practicing yoga, but I also went to therapy and read lots of book about the types of relationships that I wanted to have in my life going forward. In all those days something curious happened. I started noticing this number 11:11 flashing everywhere. Since I’m fascinated with numbers, it sparked my curiosity, and I started investigating what that was all about. Turns out that for many people 11:11 is like an internal alarm that connects you with your spirituality. It made total sense to me. Every time I saw 11:11, it was the Universe, the Angels, or my Grandma (whom I believe is my personal angel that looks after me), letting me know I was on the right track, and to keep on going.
Every time I saw 11:11, I would think of all the great things that I wanted to happen in my life. And everything started to get better. It was an incredibly happy circle. I saw the numbers, got my reaffirmation that I was on the right track, and kept thinking of all the great things I wanted to attract. Soon all my friends and family knew that 11:11 was a special number for me and November 11th one of my favorite days of the year, when the doors of the soul open for you to ask and receive. One day I decided to tattoo Eleven:Eleven on my arm (of course on a November 11th at 11 p.m. by the way) as a reminder of all the good that happens when you work hard, visualize, and think positive.
I also met Alex, by a chance encounter that wasn’t even meant to happen. I saw him and felt warmed by his incredible soul and great style and we ended up talking all night. I don’t think that we have ever stopped talking, although we took the time to learn about each other before we started dating. Alex is my partner and my soul mate. We have been together for 13+ years, and 4 years ago today, we got married in an intimate neighborhood ceremony with our friends and family. I wrote on my vows that growing up gay, I never thought that I would have what others around me had: a partner to love, someone to share their trips with, and the food, and the music, and my family, and the silliness to share my life with. And this is exactly one of the things that I wanted to manifest with every 11:11 flashing anywhere. Being in a relationship is not always easy, but I know that I can always talk to him and that we will try to find the best possible solution together.
