Calendar Year 2015 is the Divine Number 8



Crop Circle Devizes, UK

Numerology helps us to remember who we are, where we have been, and more importantly, where we are headed. Just in case you aren’t familiar with numerology let me clarify a few facts. In numerology, the calendar year is called a universal year. Numerologists determine the numerical vibration for the calendar year by adding all the numbers, for example, 2+0+1+5=8. Except for Master numbers, (11,22,33,44,etc.) all numbers are reduced to a single digit. Each number is an energy form having its own specific rate of vibration. The Hermetic Law states, everything is in motion. Nothing is at rest. Everything has a vibration.

The year 2015 will be about humanity vibrating with a higher frequency of love and balance. We will be given the choice of staying bound to the material world reality as it is today or choosing a different reality of love and oneness.  It sounds very much like Neo in the Matrix choosing the red pill and awakening to a new reality. For more information about the Consciousness Movement, I suggest you check out some of my past blogs, my book, Path to Truth and Lisa Young's article, Choose Your Reality! Connecting to a New Consciousness.

What makes the number 8 vibration so powerful? Lay the number 8 on its side, and it’s the lemniscate, which most people know as the infinity sign-eternity. Infinity means without limits, which is a perfect description for our minds. We are only limited by our thoughts and beliefs. Spiritual teachers have been telling us for years how to use mental transmutation to vibrate at higher levels of consciousness. Due to superstition and fear of anything metaphysical or spiritual, I fear most people have not been listeningThe new science, Quantum Physics/Mechanics is verifying we live in a mental world, governed by an Infinite Intelligence (God) and the Laws of Nature or Hermetic Principles.
  
The 8 composed of two zeros, one on top of the other represents degeneration and regeneration. According to the Hermetic Law of Gender, everything is masculine and feminine. The double zeros of an 8 signify the equilibrium between the masculine and feminine energies. 2015 is the year to bring back balance and equilibrium. Men and women are co-creators. The number 8 vibration is associated with the Hermetic Law of Cause and Effect-karma. Nothing happens by chance. Everything happens according to the Law of Nature.  Is the United States the reincarnation of the lost continent of Atlantis? Sounds crazy, I know. But stay with me on this. If this is true, are we following the same destructive path that destroyed Atlantis? The misuse of power by authority figures. Think of all the crisis of the last several years: financial and housing crisis, oil shortages, three wars, inflation, racial tension, etc. The way to prevent this catastrophe is to increase our vibration for the good of all.

Find your individual personal year number and discover how it works with the 8 Universal Year. Add the month, day and universal year together. A quick lesson in learning how to calculate your Life Path and Personal Year Number, using President Barack Obama's birth date of August 4, 1961.     

            8/4/1961
            8+4+1+9+6+1=29/11/2 Life Path

            8/4/2015
            8+4+2+0+1+5 =20/2 Personal Year Number

For this blog, I am focusing on the Personal Year Number. However, I decided to add President Obama’s Life Path number because it matches his Personal Year Number, indicating an intense and powerful year for him. More than any other year during his time in office and politics, this year will be the most memorable one. The energies favor him in the area of leadership, if he takes the right action in accordance to the Laws of Nature or Hermetic Principles. His strong skill of gentle persuasion, harmony, balance and patience should persevere. He is on the right track, listening to his soul.

What the Bleep Does Neuroplasticity Have to Do With Me?

I became aware of Neuroplasticity when I was involved with Luminosity.com, a website that promotes brain wellness by playing scientific brain games. It captured my interest because of my experience with my son, Antoine Aparicio (1984-2001). Anti, as family and friends called him, was born with severe Hydrocephalus, fluid on the brain. While in the womb, fluid had destroyed a region of Anti’s brain called the cerebellum, which plays an important part in motor control and some cognitive functions.  The neonatal physicians and neurosurgeons gave him three months to live, and if he did live past that time, he would be a vegetable.

He lived until he was sixteen and was an extraordinary spiritual being. I write a lot about Anti in my blogs, because his life demonstrated that he was, indeed, a Master teacher. You can read more about Anti’s story in my book, Path to Truth: a Spiritual Memoir.

In the early stages of Anti’s life, I was immersed in the New Thought Movement. One of the basic beliefs of the movement is you can heal yourself with your thoughts. Years before a cure for Tuberculosis was discovered, Myrtle Fillmore, a co-founder of Unity Church, healed herself of this dreadful disease. As I read more healing testimonies, I was convinced that Anti could be healed in spite of the negative prognosis from his neurosurgeons.  Since Anti verbally couldn’t tell me what he was thinking. I relied on his feelings. Was he happy or sad?  As I read his non-verbal cues, I discovered he also read mine. I would recite healing and gratitude affirmations to him as he met  developmental milestones. Now Neuroscientists are confirming that the brain can create new neural pathways and synapses due to changes in behavior, environment, thinking and emotions throughout our lifetime.

The environment plays a big part in our health. We can't access the region of the brain governing creativity when we are trapped in high levels of stress. There is a global Neurological epidemic  happening right now.  Diseases such as Alzheimer and Dementia are starting at younger ages, due to the fast-paced, high-tech, high-stress lifestyles we are living.

This is the time to slow down and become an observer of  our environment by becoming aware of our thoughts and feelings. Thoughts become hardwired programs of the brain and emotions the feelings of the body. They both create reality.  Ancient esoteric teachers  have always stated- focus on what you want and not what you don't want. Now Quantum physicists are saying- wherever you put your attention, energy flows. The message is the same, to think positive thoughts.

The idea is to stop the negative thought before it becomes hardwired into your brain and produce an unwanted energy form. Oh yeah, thoughts are energy waves, waiting for you to notice them so they can materialize.  You can break negative thinking by  shouting out "Stop" in your mind.  I hum the song, Let It Go

So, what the bleep does Neuroplasticity has to do with us? A lot.  The new science is helping us to become aware, understand and learn how to cope with the changing environment of technological stresses.
