Tales from the ’11’: Part 2

As our 11 universal year comes to a close, I thought I would share some final thoughts on what this intense and liberating energy taught us. Part 1 of my 11 universal year analysis can be found here.

Confrontation

The 11 in numerology represents enlightenment, illumination, awakening, and authenticity. It is a master number because these are some of the hardest things to achieve.

This year saw us having to confront our authenticity. We were tested with lessons and hardships in order to get to the root/core of who we are.

Those who were born with an 11 lifepath, are the “late bloomers” of the world as they struggle with embracing their true selves. I’m an 11 life path myself, so the lessons around being true to who I am are a constant struggle for me.

2018 happened to be an 11/2 year, meaning the core frequency of the 2 was also at work. The two is the number of relationships, balance, and harmony. Even though it seemed like the focus was on us, part of confronting our authenticity involved healing those parts of ourselves in others.

Sacred Reciprocity

Relationships were emphasized this year- perhaps they under went serious evaluation, rebuilding, or strengthening. When we are able to heal our relationships, we heal those parts within ourselves that have been buried, neglected, wounded, or forgotten.

When we are able to confront who we are, we gain confidence and trust- two things the 11 struggles with. Confronting our authenticity creates sacred reciprocity- the ability to have a relationship with the unseen and spiritual. We develop a profound understanding of our place in the world which helps us better serve our purpose.

I noticed many people experienced tragedies and setbacks that forced them to deal with issues they were avoiding. When we experience big upsets, it’s always the last attempt from the universe to wake us up. It’s a beautiful act of awakening that is disguised as a horrible catastrophe.

Final Thoughts

Here are some things that the 11 universal year should have brought you:

-Shift in perspective

-Greater compassion

-Emotional detachment

– Self-sacrifice

-Patience

-Mirroring

-Healing

It’s amazing that when we experience just some of the above mentioned things, we unlock the power of who we are. It’s a special kind of magic that only appears when it’s time for us to upgrade to a more purposeful version of ourselves.

2019 will be a universal 3 year, a time for us to share our new selves no matter how much opposition we face internally or externally.

Tony Robbins a life path 11 has many quotes that symbolize the 11 energy, but here is one that I feel best sums up this year

Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.

See you in 2019!

Luminous Movie- Black Panther

I’m not a fan of Marvel movies or superheroes, but when Black Panther was released on Netflix I was curious to see what all the fuss was about. I have to admit, I enjoyed it! I thought the storyline was ingenious a meteorite with super high vibe minerals, an advanced country presenting itself as a third world country, and lots of metaphysical rituals. It left me thinking that nothing is ever as it presents itself. If Marvel keeps putting out movies with a new age twist like they did with Dr. Strange and Black Panther, I might actually become a fan of the superhero genre.

Superluminal Book of the Month- Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

Last month I visited my local New Age shop to purchase some books on Bach Flower Therapy. While perusing the shop, I came across a pile of books stacked on the floor whose top book was glistening under the flourescent lighting and whispering my name. It was Garden Spells. My synchonistic meeting with this book was beautiful. I went into the shop to purchase books on flower therapy (which I did) and left with a novel about floriography (the art of interpreting flowers). The messages in this book were what I needed to absorb at the time, and thus I am grateful for our encounter. This book follows two sisters and their magical garden in North Carolina. This was the second book to make me cry because I related so deeply to the sisters’ perseverance and struggles. If you think a magical apple tree and unrequited love might be your cup of tea, pick up a copy of Garden Spells...you won’t be disappointed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My New Blog!

I have created an additional blog all about Bach Flower Essences and their Astrological & Occult connections. I am currently studying to become a Bach Flower Practitioner and felt that the time has come to express this new side of me in a written format where I can share all of my insights and knowledge about this new path. It is my hope that you will learn something new and interesting about this floral therapy.

I will still be active on The Luminessence and have lots of interesting in depth articles coming up shortly.
