Today is 11/11/11

Today is 11/11/11 and I am writing this at 11:11 a.m. It looks cool, especially on a digital clock, but what does it mean?

Knowing that some of the roots of tarot cards' meanings come from numerology, I thought it would be interesting to look into the meaning of ONES and ELEVENS.

Ones are associated with new beginnings, creation and the start of a new cycle. When doubled, the number 11 becomes a master number and according to Tarot: Plain and Simple, by Anthony Louis, "Eleven is a master number symbolizing insight, spiritual understanding, inspiration, awareness, revelation, illumination, intuition, creativity, idealism, teaching, wisdom, compassion, and enlightenment. In numerology 11 reduces to 1 + 1 = 2., and master number 11 is a higher octave of two." (page 312)

"Two is a number of balance, choice, harmony, moderation, pairs of opposites, duality, polarity, partnership, friendship, relationships, etc..." (page 309).  
For me today's date, 11/11/11, is full of insight, spiritual understanding, creativity, wisdom and compassion. I feel Divinely supported as I more fully step into my purpose. So many positive shifts are happening universally and personally. The double "1" invites me to take a fresh look at what's happening in my life, especially new ideas, projects and adventures.

I've recently been doing some introspective work looking at my personal mythology. Personal mythology includes looking at human myths, societal myths, my ancestor's myths and my own to see how they impact my life.

The beauty of doing this work is that I get to re-examine my beliefs and re-shape them according to where I am now, no longer relying on old habits and patterns. I am much more conscious about my choices and my behaviors.

Through this work, I've uncovered some beliefs that will stay because they are still true for me. But there are others that, once viewed with today's wisdom, are being modified or discarded because they no longer serve me. It's deep work that is sometimes refreshing, and at other times heavy and emotional. But I am slowly moving towards a much better understanding of who I am and what influences me.

I welcome the energy of the number 11 to help me continue to find insight, spiritual understanding, compassion and love as I move forward.

With these insights, what does the date 11/11/11 mean for you?

I would love to talk with you about the beliefs you are releasing. We are doing the same examination in the class I'm taking.

Today does not feel like a time of renewal and creativity to me. I've instead experienced loss, frustration and disappointment, in others and in myself.

Surely renewal and creativity will follow at some point, though.

Numbers don't mean a thing. The sermon today did. God loves you. I am not in favor of anonymous, but don't have a google account. Feel free to talk to me. I am not angry - just trying to love you as Christ would have me to.
