What an exhausting year 2016 has been – with 4 more weeks to go!  In this spiraling 9 Year of drama and trauma – and this wobbling Leap Year of insecurity and disbelief – our emotions have been so deeply unconscious that we had to be shocked into seeing the reality of our world, our lives, our leaders, and our selves. But denial is hard to escape from because denial’s nature is to deny its own existence. Denial of reality is life’s real ‘darkness’, and has always been our biggest barrier to evolvement.

At a time in the human journey when we are evolving emotionally, our feelings are ferociously under attack, which is why so many people feel drained and exhausted. We are being spun. At the same time, fascism, which deviously feeds off the genuine concerns of citizens, continues to rise, everywhere. One of the most important lessons we can learn in week 49 is that people are not easily controlled when they are aware of the methods used to control them.

4 is the number of FACT and DETAIL, and here we are in the final week of a 10-week cycle in which all the week numbers began with 4 – the number of order, system, restriction, obstruction, delay, hard work, dedication, our sense of identity, and breakthrough.

4 has taught us a lot about the 4th Estate – otherwise known as the press. Journalism acquired this title because their principle role is to report the truth and help keep governments and corporations honest – and should be looked upon (unofficially) as the 4th branch of government. That is how essential the press is meant to be. But of course, this requires dedication to the truth – which cannot coexist with concerns about “ratings”, being the ‘first’ to report, or a journalist’s personal ‘image”.

Week 49 is a karmic 13/4 week which holds important lessons about carelessness when attention to detail is essential – about insisting on doing things “your way” – and about identifying yourself by the work you do, or the persona you reflect, rather than the person you are.

4 seeks out the illogical and incorrect and replaces it with practicality and accuracy. This energy thrives on detail, formula, routine, organization, and the recognition of patterns. However, if learning is not the intention, 4 can also bulldoze its way over anything that crosses its path in order to prove itself right – and superior.

Week 49 brings plenty of obstruction, but also the means and determination to break through barriers. Don’t be distracted by trivial or irrelevant matters. This is an opportunity to escape from denial and move with more ease into the light of reality, even if we do not like what we see there. We cannot change what we refuse to look at.

4 means getting organized and constructing a firm foundation from which to work. Solid information sources and organization are essential to maintaining freedom in the months and years ahead, despite any obstructions and distractions that are thrown in our path.

4 is the number of practicality, maturity, determination, effort, and the kind of enthusiasm that can only be maintained by realism – and approaching goals with both firmness and flexibility. 4 can make us very stubborn at times, but the 9 energy of 2016 can help us LET GO of the need to be ‘right’ all the time and actually learn something new. 4 is the number of common sense and logic.

Situations may arise in which the number 13 is brought forward in relevant ways, such as the 13th Amendment, which was ratified 151 years ago on December 6, (a 9 day in the world) and which corresponds directly to the surge of white supremacy which has arisen in the USA – and throughout the world). The whole question of RACE is reaching a critical stage – as the cracks in this dying system reveal the horrific imbalance that exists between human beings.

We are not the human ‘RACE’.  The human race is a system, not a species.

We are humanity – humankind – and we have not even begun to understand our purpose and potential because the system depends on our not knowing it. In this system we are simply units of work.

But we are not here in creation to provide labor to some industry or other. We are here to create – not destroy. What’s happening now threatens to subdue the creative pulse with a destructive one – which is self destruction. No imagination. No resourcefulness. Small mindedness. Closed mindedness. Minds focused so narrowly on greed or hate that the mind shrinks and mindlessness sets in.

4 represents the FACTS OF THE MATTER. But this term is all too often used to communicate opinion. A surge of ant-intellectualism is sweeping through the world and is being communicated very noticeably. 3 is the number of COMMUNICATION, and December is a DOUBLE 3 MONTH (1+2=3+9=1+2=3).

Anti-intellectualism – part of the dumbing-down process – reached new levels this week when Trump spokesperson, Scottie Nell Hughes, communicated to Diane Rehm of NPR that there is “no such thing as facts any more”.

No such thing as knowledge? No difference between fact and opinion? Between fact and fiction? She went on to cast doubt on the existence of truth itself – and implied that we cannot actually ‘know’ anything for sure.

COMMUNICATION is transmission. It is how we think and learn – and it is under attack by the remnants of an old unsustainable way of life which runs on fear, greed, and hate.

In a month when communication is the principle theme, it is important to know that this age-old tactic of extreme nihilism has always been used in nazi and fascist propaganda. Skepticism at this dangerous level is the denial of any objective basis for truth, and renders communication almost impossible. 3 is perhaps the most magical number. It is the number of happiness, after all. But it can also be the shallowest. Shallowness is lack of depth, curiosity, feeling, intellect, effort.

Part of 3’s magic is the power of OPTIMISM, which is another word for HOPE. That is what carries through bad times. Without it, we sink into the depths of despair. HOPE is the last thing to go! So hold on to it. It is the belief that we can learn how to change what needs to change, and that we have it in us to turn things around.

This karmic 13/4 Week began on the 337th day of this Leap year (3+3+7=13/4), so here is another double vibration. KARMA is the learning of what we most need to know in order to move forward. Karma teaches the laws of cause-and-effect. If you do “this” – this will happen. If you do “that” – that will happen … and these are deeply karmic times.

This week’s 49/13/4 vibration can help us gain more understanding of the role we have played in allowing certain things to happen by ignoring the ‘how’ and ‘why’. We don’t go deeply enough into the facts. But the path we are on right now is unfamiliar and potentially perilous. We don’t know where it’s leading – so we need to focus, look beneath mere surface appearances, and pay attention to the details.

Mass communication is a way of getting inside everyone’s head at the same time. This is why the proposed merger between the communications giants AT&T and Time Warner is such an important issue. If it goes through, it would give them the unprecedented power to control everything we hear, see, and do, online.

One of the emotions so many people are feeling at this time (but may not have identified as such) is the fear of being trapped with no way out. We all experience this in our own way because we are individuals, and our circumstances and backgrounds are different. Understandably, we avoid this fear at all costs, because it feels SO bad. So we compromise. We make decisions that we believe will ensure we never have to feel this feeling – and we end up feeling it anyway because that is what denied emotions do. Fear is not the problem. Being unable to face our fears is the problem – and the more we refuse to face our fears, the more we attract conditions that force us to do so. No one wants to live in fear. That would be like living in constant hell. Therefore, we must learn how to properly process this natural emotion, the purpose of which is to keep us safe.

Talking of communication and learning experiences, President Elect Trump made a serious error this week by communicating with the president of Taiwan, apparently with no knowledge of the treaty between the United States and China. Another aspect of nihilism is the rejection of established laws and institutions – which may sound attractive to some. But in a world which so desperately needs diplomacy, not provocation, this is extremely reckless. This is how wars are started. We are in the 2000s, and 2 is the number of peace through diplomacy.

And talking of treaties, Monday, December 5 marks the eviction deadline for the embattled but determined water protectors at Standing Rock, North Dakota. Since April, they have been protesting the planned pipeline of oil company, Dakota Access, across Native American land and waterways. Just one oil spill would contaminate the water supply and decimate sacred religious and spiritual sites. 2,000 American veterans are expected to arrive in North Dakota by Monday to protect and stand with them.

The emphasis on LAND and WATER is extremely important here, not only because we need water to survive as a species, but also because emotion is FLUID and is symbolized by water. Emotion is feminine energy, emotion is under attack, and you can’t get more feminine than Mother Nature – the giver of both land and water.

UPDATE Dec 4: The Obama Administration will not grant the necessary permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline. This most favorable result, after months of deeply emotional protest and great hardship, reflects the human WILL (the feminine principle) at work. Most especially the will of the people right there on the ground, but also the will of millions of people in the US and around the world who supported them. Of course, this is probably not the end of the story. That pipeline has to go somewhere…

Note too, that the independent and foreign press covered this major event in great detail, while the US mainstream media it gave minimal attention.

The entire world is at the mercy of people who do not understand the true value of the ecosystem because they measure value in terms of currency, and overlook the greater reality. They control all the food, water, air, seed, and soil. The point here is that knowledge is power, and they lack knowledge. They will eventually fail.

This week, one of the world’s greatest scientific minds, Stephen Hawking, wrote an article about Brexit – and the election of Donald Trump. Here is an excerpt:

“…we are at the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity. We now have the technology to destroy the planet on which we live, but have not yet developed the ability to escape it. Perhaps in a few hundred years, we will have established human colonies amid the stars, but right now we only have one planet, and we need to work together to protect it.

To do that, we need to break down, not build up, barriers within and between nations. If we are to stand a chance of doing that, the world’s leaders need to acknowledge that they have failed and are failing the many.

With resources increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few, we are going to have to learn to share far more than at present.”

      No. She didn’t. That’s why millions voted the way they did. I was worried about the state of our country and my grandchildren’futures, but now i know they’ll at least have a fighting chance without all the uninformed bleeding hearts who have no minds of their own but would rather sit back and let a bunch of criminals rule them and run/ruin our country. So, please, speak for yourself and also, Creative Numerology, Taiwan? Really?! You do know they have a democracy so like our own and so unlike China’s dictatorship and they wanted to congratulate but we should ignore them why? Because that’s what the old ways would have you think we should react? Really?! And you’re supposed to be enlightening?! I think you’re reading your numbers wrong. You’ve lost a long-time subscriber, you know why? Not just because I disagree with your sorry ass opinion, but your personal opinion had no place here. Just like all the spiritual sites I unsubscribed to and the ‘actors’ who assumed we cared what they personally thought about this election and made empty threats about leaving this beautiful place. ..done and didn’t come here for that. So, do yourselves a favor, go learn your history about the democratic party, take your emotions out of your decisions. Research and learn about who you almost voted in and what that would’ve meant and give the president elect a chance and the same benefit of the doubt given to all the criminal career politicians for the last decade. This is the change the universe has been screaming for, for humanity to wake up and start thinking for themselves!


      • Hello DD, so sorry we are in disagreement, but such differences are going on everywhere and there is little we can do to avoid them at this time. We see things as we see them. As for keeping my opinion to myself, that is what I’m doing. This is after all my website/blog. Sorry to see you leave and wishing you, and all of us, the very best in the months and years to come.

        You’re gonna be eating those words in 4 years, lady. Good luck to you.

        Your point of view is really scary to me. Your grandchildren will not be safe in a society that doesn’t preserve our earth. And the hatred your express is so damaging. To yourself. Taiwan is NOT a democracy. The people cannot change the government by election.


      • Alice says:

        You poor, misguided soul. I can’t even say anything mean to you because I feel more pity than anger.

    Well, we all have our opinions and Christine I don’t always agree with everything you write but you made some interesting points and I know how to take what is usable for me and leave what is not. I think this is part of the illusion we live in. We think that in order to support someone or something we must agree with it in its entirtey, otherwise it must be our “enemy”. As I said, that is an illusion. Taiwan is a democracy but the U.S. has an agreement with China and China believes Taiwan to be their “territory” and because of that a war could be started at the hand of “the president-elect” someone who has not even been sworn in yet. We do still have a president in office if there is any foreign communications need to be done. Although, I do understand the frustration of the people and we do need a change but I don’t think this is what some believe it to be. Remember the illusion and the people driving this train are very good at illusions. Keep up the good work…I thank you for using your gift to help the masses because we sure need it. All you explained shines a bright light on many of the things that are before us and fighting is not the answer here on this blog, in the country, or in the world. We know that hasn’t worked with all of the endless conflicts all over the world the U.S. have been involved in. Right now, we need so desperately, to come together and form a bond stronger than super glue or this thing is going to go very badly, very quickly…Thanks again!

    I visit your blog once a month, or every other month when life gets busy, and when I’m here I stay for at least an hour reading and sharing new and old posts. This one was insightful and timely, as usual. I appreciate your sharing, Christine. Truly. One more thing, in regards to DD’s comment “your personal opinion had no place here,” I find this statement both amusing and sad. Why? 1) This is YOUR blog; your personal opinion should be here. And 2) if the spiritual community does not stand up and speak up about what’s going on in the world, bring light to the darkness, offer their opinions and solutions, then what purpose does such a community serve? Politics and spirituality are not mutually exclusive. One affects the other. Everything is connected. We. Are. One. Doesn’t get much simpler than that!
