One challenge that I enjoy participating in is VJ Knutson’s weekly challenge. Her blog is named One Woman’s Quest II. I too feel like I’m on my own quest as I explore her topics and wonder what I may discover along my journey.
What Does this Number Mean to Me?
Last week’s challenge was on numerology which actually caught my attention last year when I suddenly started to see palindromic numerical patterns in my life such as 1221, 5225, 4224. I try not to think too hard about it, but sometimes they’re impossible to ignore especially since I notice these details in my environment quite often.
I feel like the fictional character Milo in the book, “The Phantom Tollbooth”, where he’s mining for numbers as if they are jewels buried deep in the earth. What kind of meaning can be derived from this treasure? Various authors such as parapsychologist, Kate Sebring, explore the meaning behind these patterns.
Life Path Calculator
Who would have thought a life calculator would exist as life gives so many twists and turns!? Curious by the link VJ provided on Token Rock, I input some data and here’s what it told me:
The Life Path 6 looks for ways to make harmony with everything you encounter. Whether it is art, music, or relationships, no other Life Path can make things coalesce as naturally as you can. Your magnetic personality draws people in and can lead to you being the center of attention.
You will find that your life will revolve around your family, and friends. You have an innate ability to nurture the people around you. As the person who usually takes charge of a situation you tend to be, or are on the way to being, the head of staff.
Don’t let your innate ability to lead go to your head, this can lead to you trying to control every situation, and that is not what being a 6 is about. Learn to balance ‘leading and nurturing’ so as to raise up the people around you, instead of ‘demanding and controlling’ which will alienate people.
Some notable Life Path 6 people you may know: John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Thomas Edison, Stephen King.
What an interesting group of individuals that share my life path! 🙂
Travelling Back in Time
This week’s challenge is on anniversary in which you can explore an date in the past. So, in the spirit of numerical patterns, I’ll think about May 5, 2005 (05-05-05). I was in high school and my Spanish teacher was teaching about Cinco de Mayo holiday. She also decided to assign a project where each student would create a dish from a recipe from a South American country. We had a delicious show-and-tell potluck presentation! I was assigned El Salvador, so I made popusas!
Cinco de Mayo will be coming up in a few weeks and I will continue to think back to my teacher’s historical lesson about how this date impacted the American Civil War in the midst of the bright colorful celebration that will take place in the streets downtown.
Numbers in Pop Culture
For curiosity’s sake, I became more fascinated by TV shows and movies that explored a world behind numbers such as Numb3rs, Touch, The Imitation Game, The Man Who Knew Infinity hoping they might shed some light as to what I might be experiencing. I think I was more entertained and enlightened by the drama.
