Another year is coming to a close, and a new year is about to begin. Why does it seem as if 365 days go by in the blink of an eye? As I’ve gotten older, it seems like the years go by much faster than when I was younger. I used to think it was just part of aging, but I’ve talked with lots of people in their twenties who feel exactly the same. It’s like life is moving on a speeding train and we have no other option than to sit back and enjoy the ride.
It can’t be our imagination. I believe that we perceive time as speeding up because our consciousness is ascending into a higher dimension from the three-dimensional world we’ve come to know. In actuality, time doesn’t exist beyond our Earthly plane. Time was created by man. In the spiritual realm, there is no time or space. There is no here or there. There is only pure energetic existence … infinity … a constant state of being.
For me, the most fascinating part about the concept of time is the numerology associated with it. Numerology is an ancient philosophy that’s similar to astrology, but instead of looking to the stars and planets, we look to numbers for insights into our lives.
Every number has a meaning in accordance with its vibrational energy, and that energy has an influence on our personalities and the world around us. In addition to our own personal numbers which are associated with our birthdates, there’s also a universal number that affects us. That universal energy changes every year within a nine-year cycle. This year has been the completion of a nine-year cycle, and the energy is one of endings. The number nine is arrived at by adding 2+0+1+6 = 9.
The year 2017 is reduced to the number one and has the energy of a new beginning. In addition to being the start of a new nine-year cycle, it’s also the beginning of a new phase of your life. So, the phrase “out with the old and in with the new” has even more significance in 2017.
How many of you experienced meaningful changes this year, such as a job, a home, a relationship, or possibly all of those things? Was this the year that you finally made peace with the past so you could move forward? If a relationship or a friendship came to an end, it’s most likely a blessing in disguise. Those things were meant to happen to prepare you for the new people who will enter your life in 2017.
Did you finally finish a project that you’re passionate about? Get ready to put it out there in 2017! Did you complete an educational program that’s going to move your career forward? Take your new skills and talents to the world in 2017!
For me, 2016 was indicative of not one but two consecutive nine-year cycles. I had to say goodbye to both my 18-year old cat and my 18-year old car. Needless to say, my cat was the more difficult of the two. Baby was the last of my three cats, and it was so painful to let her go, but when, after two years of allowing me to provide her with the medical care she needed to maintain her quality of life, she chose to fight me, I knew I had to respect her wishes. Baby is with me in spirit, and it’s comforting when I see a sign from her. My car went on to an “afterlife” too. I donated it to my mechanic who fixed it up and donated it to his nephew.
While I had some losses in 2016, I also had some gains with my career. I was a guest on local and national radio stations and made three appearances on a popular international podcast. Also, I was guided to join the Toastmasters speaking organization and shortly thereafter had the courage to speak about angels at a local metaphysical event. I found that I love teaching just as much as writing.
I plan to intensify the speaking aspect of my career next year. In addition to teaching about angels, I want to bring comfort to people who are grieving by letting them know about “signs from Heaven.” For my new beginning in 2017, I’ll be working toward a full-time career as an author and speaker. I’m hoping that will be my path for this next nine-year cycle. After that, I hope to do another nine years!
Everything that happened in 2016, both good and bad, has prepared you for your fresh start in 2017. You’ve evolved from all of your experiences and are ready to take on the world. Make your new beginning the best one ever, follow your heart, and let your soul soar!
With love, light, and angel blessings,
