We are all evolving into something we have yet to become, but because we are afraid of our own potential – afraid of our own power – we tend to resist this change, consciously and subconsciously. This helps us justify our desire to run back to times when we felt more sure of ourselves. It is often tempting to retreat and go backwards rather than actually change.
We will evolve anyway because we are moving through TIME, which is the numeric framework on which all movement occurs. Time is a far more vital and multi-dimensional force than most people realize. In the course of time, we are learning the difference between what needs to be feared because it can do great harm, and what does not need to be feared because it has no basis for alarm.
“A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” ~John A. Shedd, “Salt from My Attic”, 1928.
Fear will always hold us back if we do not understand its power and purpose in the vast emotional range. So we have to find the courage to FACE our fears: to move through them, and learn as we go, instead of pushing them into denial and opting for what appears to be the “safest” (but often weakest) way out.
The more we deny fear when it arises, the more we attract situations that will force us to face our fears. We are not meant to be “fearless”. As evolving beings, we are meant to learn how to process fear in a way that provides intelligence, not paralysis. What we are experiencing now is providing valuable lessons in this regard.
Week 46 began on Friday, 11 11 2016, and because 2016 is a 9 Year, the 11 11 phenomenon will be with us for the entire month. (See link at end of page to my short piece on 11 11 2016).
Week 47 (next week) begins on November 18th which is an 11 day – in an 11 week – in this 11th month. This gives us 11 11 11 – and the master number 33. It will be interesting to see what happens in the established financial and corporate world throughout November, and particularly on November 18 – (and November 21, which also holds triple-11 energy). But that’s next week — back to the present…..
Week 46 is a “10/1” week (new beginnings), and as this 9 year of endings merges with the 10/1 energy of the decade, and the incoming 10/1 energy of 2017, we find ourselves at the beginning of an enormous unpredictable turning point – personally, nationally, and globally.
This week’s 10 10 10 energy brings forward #30 – which represents the power of COMMUNICATION, the stage, the airways and internet, the arts, entertainment, illusions, and outer appearances. 3 provides the platform to get the message across. Our perception of what is being communicated is extremely important now.
3 is also the number of HAPPINESS and OPTIMISM, and this is a good time to recognize and appreciate what you already have. Be aware of how you yourself are communicating and try not to get caught up in gossip and rumor. 3 also encourages you to check the facts instead of taking what you are told for granted.
Thursday, November 17, 2016 (11+8+9=28=10=1) adds another component of 10, and we have 10 10 10 10 = 40. This reminds us that we are currently traveling a 10-week cycle in which all the Week Numbers begin with 4 – the number of both restriction and breakthrough, effort and laziness, order and chaos, detail and vagueness, and our very sense of identity as individuals, nations, and cultures. 4 helps us to ORGANIZE, and inspires the qualities of dedication, staying power, and efficiency.
10 is such a powerful number as we continue to evolve from the 1000s to the 2000s. The 10 energy takes us to NEW LEVELS, and there is no doubt that a new level of urgency prevails since the election of Donald Trump. This very visible descent into fascism must not be trivialized and “normalized”. Its foundations have been laid – it IS happening – and we do have to accept that fact. Already, the new American administration is being embraced by fascist organizations in Europe and around the world.
Fascism is also a form of terror, which is why so many people are terrified of what may lay ahead. Denying that you are afraid will weaken you because you will have to block out large areas of reality from your consciousness. Accepting that your various fears exist, and being determined to move through them anyway will strengthen you and also help you to keep yourself safe. That is how we will evolve emotionally. Emotion is feminine energy, which, first and foremost, is what is under attack here.
“I pray he surrounds himself with decent people.” ~Richard Branson
As I write this, the Trump administration just announced that he will immediately undo the Dodd-Frank financial regulations which were put in place after the 2008 banking crisis and signed into law by President Obama. With a Republican Congress cheering him on, there is little to stop him succeeding with this. The last time the republicans held all branches of government was in 1928 – followed the very next year by the Wall Street Crash of 1929 – and then the Great Depression which lasted for 10 years.
The Crash of ’29 occurred on October 29, 1929. This was in Week 44 (the most balanced form of 8), the number of finance, incorporation, and power in the material world)… it is also the presidential number of Barack Obama.
29 adds up to 11 – and there are two 29s in this date. This 11 11 event affected the whole world, and was instrumental in the rise of fascism in Germany. As foreign investors withdrew their interests there, millions were thrown out of work, and several major banks collapsed. Hitler was able to use the despair of the people to gain support for the nazi (nationalist) party by promising to repeal various laws, boost the economy, and provide more jobs. The rise of nationalism led to World War 2 (nation against nation), at a time when Germany was already under much criticism for its treatment of prisoners-of-war from World War 1. At the same time, the crash in the USA enabled the Fascist Party, founded by Benito Mussolini, to tighten its grip on Italy.
The crash of ’29 actually began on October 24, 1929 (1+6+3) which was a 10/1 day in the world. This is a piece of history we can truly learn from in this 10/1 week and 10/1 decade. It is not enough to look at what is happening today and think that we are informed. Many Americans have no idea what fascism actually is because they have never experienced it. Furthermore, the meaning of the word “fascist” has been devalued over the years as people increasingly used it to describe anyone with opposing political views.
Fascism is not mere political ideology. Fascism, nationalism, authoritarianism, nazi-ism, call it what you will, is total control of the people by government, which itself is controlled by the interests of the few, not the many, and is always headed by a bully, dictator, ‘strongman’. We are experiencing the ‘winner-takes-all’ corporatization of government, cloaked by vague promises of “freedom” and “wonderful times ahead”, along with a flood of conspiracy theories to keep the population emotionally ‘charged’ against opposition – it is “divide and conquer” in the extreme.
“We must stand up defiantly to any dark or divisive acts, and look out for the most vulnerable among us.” ~George Takei
The old system is cracking down hard on the human WILL which is made of emotional energy – the feminine principles of life – which all men and women possess, just as all men and women possess masculine energy – spirit – light. But when light does not have any love in it, the world has a crisis on its hands.
This is why 11 is such an important number. The number of illumination. The two 1’s hold the potential of connection, acceptance, and peace. They also hold the potential of two opposing sides constantly resisting each other. A closer look at 11 reveals what is in the space between those two 1s – the gap that divides humanity and pits 1 against 1, individual against individual, past against future, right against left – IMPASSE.
The space reserved for middle ground is filled instead with the suppressed suffering of generations – and indifference to that suffering, all of which is here again in the PRESENT. The concept of the ‘master race’ – white supremacy – has raised its ugly head once more. Eventually peace is restored because the alternative is self-destruction. But war never ends. There are no winners. It will happen again and again – until we learn to do things differently.
We cannot know exactly how this will play itself out, or what interventions may occur, if any. As the old ways of the fast-paced electrical masculine 1000s race against the slowness of the magnetic feminine 2000s, it is impossible to keep up with it all. But it is that very slowness in 2 which gives us the depth of vision needed to start building new foundations that are not merely repeats of the past but are based on love and equality, rather than hate, and the abuse of power.
If you are angry, express your anger outwardly. Don’t hold onto it and let it morph into rage. But do remember that your emotions are not weapons. There is no reason to hurt yourself or anyone else in the process of emotional healing. Your feelings are your Will, and are your best means of understanding your reality – in-depth – and not merely at the surface level.
Because the situation is so urgent, we have to find a way to process our emotions as fully as possible – and plan for the future at the same time. In fact, our feminine feelings and our masculine minds MUST work together now in order to be effective. THAT is what it means to be whole. THAT is the potential we are so afraid of.
It is not enough to say, “ok go ahead and grieve but be quick about it”. That will not help to bring new ideas into the mind but, rather perpetuate the old mindset which brought us to this massive turning point. We cannot ‘come together’ to accept fascism. We have to ‘come together’ within ourselves first – the coming together of mind and emotion. Inner connection. Self acceptance.
To do this, we must understand more of how the feminine emotions work within the biological body, and how the masculine mind opposes emotion because it only wants to think – and not have its thoughts interrupted by feelings. But without the input that the feelings offer, the mind cannot learn anything new and cannot come up with anything original (repeated history).
Fascism will be resisted. It always is. But knowing the true nature of what we are up against is paramount. We can learn a lot from people who have resisted this energy in other countries, but because times have changed, we also have to learn as we go. We must give ourselves the time and space to STUDY the situation more fully if we are to approach it ‘differently’ and effectively.
We are still in the 9 Year of 2016 – which takes the shape of a spiral. Just like being on a spiral staircase, we cannot see what is around the corner. The election of Donald Trump caught the world by surprise and the shockwaves are vibrating strongly. However, this is also triggering 2’s evolutionary qualities of intuition and receptiveness, and a desire for new and deeper understanding.
We move ever-forward in the course of time, and we cannot allow ourselves to be pulled back to a time that no longer exists. But we do need to give ourselves time and space in which to think and feel for ourselves. November is a 2 month (11+9=2+0=2) – the number of patience, cooperation, detail, slowness, perception, kindness, nurture, sense, sensitivity, the senses, intuition, and behind the scenes activity.
We can change outer realities all we want, but if nothing moves inside, the old situation will keep coming back. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
That’s what all this 10 energy is about – real and meaningful change – innovation – originality – the next level – NEW beginnings.
It all begins within.
Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in. ~Leonard Cohen. September 21, 1934 – November 10, 2016
