The Power of Seven

The month of July has been an extremely difficult month for most people. The reason why is because, numerology-wise, the energy of the month (July) is the same as that of the year (2014) - seven (2 + 0 + 1 + 4 = 7), making the energy we are experiencing twice as powerful. The year 2014 is not only a 7, it is also a 5 (1 + 4 = 5), making it a year of freedom as well … freedom to try new things. 

Seven is a spiritual number. It asks: "What do you really want out of life?" Situations will come up this month to be examined: "Is this what I really want to do?" People in our life will be examined, too: "Does this person really love and support me? Do you love and support this person?" Energy must flow both ways for a relationship to be in balance.

Seven provides a time to evaluate what we are truly getting out of the different situations we find ourselves in. If one person is doing all the giving and the other person all the taking or doing nothing at all, the energy of 7 will ask: "Why you are still in this situation? What are you getting out of the situation that you are still in it? Do I want to continue moving forward in this relationship/situation?" 

People come and people go in our lives. It's the ebb and flow of life, and it is totally natural. We grieve the loss (real or imagined), but life will and does go on.

Change is difficult for all of us. We get comfortable with our lives, even if we don't always like what is currently taking place. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step (Lao-tzu). The only thing constant in life is change (Francois La Rochefouccauld). Don't be afraid to make changes in your life!

The energy of 7 will help bring about necessary change. Don’t resist the change; begin to flow with it. You will find life much better when you get to the other side of where you once were. Life really can get better!

People change. We are in each other's lives for a reason and a purpose, but there comes a time when that reason and purpose is done; we may have to go our separate ways. It does not mean you don't love each other - true love never dies. It simply means you have both grown in different ways. 

And who knows! You may even meet up again later in life for an even better and deeper relationship. Allow life to take you where you need to be. Trust in the process of life. You'll never be sorry. 

The greatest love there is is to lay your life down for another. The second greatest love is to love someone enough to let them go (in death and in life). You can't bring in something new if you are hanging onto the old.

One other thing to remember as we go through the challenges of life: We don't grow through the good times; we grow through adversity. And life is all about growth! What you resist, persists (Carl Jung). So allow yourself to let go of that which no longer serves you, and allow something new and exciting to come into your life. You'll be glad you did!

One more thing to keep in mind as you move forward: August is the month of bringing things back into balance, September is the month of endings/change, and October is the month of bringing new things/people into your life. It may take a while to move past where you are at, but the good news is that it won't be much longer! 

Blessings to you on your journey!

With much love, Pat
