This Universal Number seven month of February 2021 has a unique song that calls to the truth-seeker, our inner compass, and North Star to remember who we really are.
If the element of the truth seeker did not already exist within us, there would be no Life path, purpose, discovery, awakening to higher wisdom, or the unfolding of compassion.
Because the element of the truth seeker is within us, there is a part of us that already knows who we truly are and wants to awaken to this divine mystery. It is because it is a part of us that we are summoned on a journey of discovery.
We All Have a Unique Story
We all have a unique story…with all the twists and turns that make our life journey compelling, adventurous, romantic, and sometimes treacherous, and all of these circumstances identify with our resonance frequency. We have gifts, talents, abilities, and superpowers that were never meant to lie dormant but to be discovered and utilized to the best of our potential. What we do with these assets is contingent on how well we nurture our purpose for living and sometimes this means investigating the deeper parameters of our souls’ journey. The Truth Seeker within us can be summoned at any time but listening and following our inner guidance is a skill that takes time, practice, and trust.
I’ve come to understand and believe on one level or another that the story of our lives does not really matter or at least not the details because the external conditions of my story may be different from yours. I like to tell a different story. A story of humanity. Spoken in the language of the heart. Something we may all be able to understand.
I heard this story at a meditation meeting not too long ago. It is about an amazing clay Buddha statue, which was over 10 feet tall and weighs at least 2 tons. It was kept in a monastery in Thailand, but local developers were planning to tear down the monastery to make away for a new highway.
The monks arranged for a crane to come and move the Buddha to its new safe location. When the crane started to lift the statue, it began to crack. The crew had underestimated its weight and wanting to protect their statue, the monks asked the developers to wait until they could figure out a better plan without causing further harm to the statue.
The crew lowered the statue back down and decided to bring in a more powerful crane the next day. To add insult to injury, it started to rain, so the monks had to lovingly cover the statue with tarps to keep the moisture away.
Later that night, the lead monk took out his flashlight and went out to make sure the Buddha was alright. When the light of the flashlight shone in the crack of the clay, he saw a glimmer… A reflection of something underneath the shroud of clay.
He started to carefully chisel away the shards of clay and the glimmer grew even brighter. Hours later, he had chiseled away all the clay to reveal the presence of a Buddha made of solid gold.
The monk went back into the history books and found out that the Burmese army had once invaded Thailand and because their Buddha was made of gold, the monks didn’t want the Burmese army to pillage it, so they covered the Golden Buddha with 12 inches of clay. Sadly, the monks were slaughtered in the invasion, and the secret of the Golden Buddha stayed hidden for two centuries.
As new monks and people came through the monastery, all they saw was some dusty old Buddha. They didn’t realize its value.
So, this is my story. This may be your story too… right? No matter where we come from, or the conditions surrounding us, we on some level or another get distracted from who we truly are and, in the confusion, we do what is necessary to escape our pain, the pain of our past, present, and future. In doing so, we cover ourselves under layers of fear, regret, and resentment and in the process, we start forgetting who we are.
This story reminds us that we all have intrinsic value. There is nothing wrong with us.
There Are Reasons Why Things Happen
I grew up being and feeling different from my family members. There were long periods of time that I cried every day because I did not understand the world I lived in. I withdrew from people and society in general until I couldn’t take it anymore and then I started to speak my mind. This got me in a lot of trouble, but I managed to change a few things in the process. Nonetheless, life was a constant emotional battle. Feeling I was damned if I do and damned if I don’t.
If I kept my mouth shut (like a good little girl) and allowed things to happen that were completely against my truth, I would get stomach pains from holding in my emotions and if I spoke up to people, they took it as a moral challenge causing immediate conflict.
The fear that something was wrong with me was why I started running away from pain, and why my intentions were so misguided. Because I was confused and afraid of the pain, I unskillfully tried to escape it, while what I was actually doing was covering up what was pure and good about me.
I locked inside of me the very thing I was trying to escape from and what did I want to escape from?
The pain of feeling misunderstood, loneliness, and rejection.
I wanted to escape the pain I felt from the story I made up about how I was unlovable because I was different. That no matter how hard I tried to fit into my family, school, and society in general, I failed at every attempt. it was all my fault, and I didn’t know how to change it.
We have all been hurt, rejected, abandoned, and let down. We have all felt pain, grief, and sorrow. Yet, we are also resilient.
I finally understood that there is nothing wrong with me and there never was. Underneath all the misguided perceptions, there are reasons why things happen the way they do, and I came into this world perfectly intact with all the necessary components to live the life I was born to create.
The Truth Seeker Within Us
Egyptian Numerology honors the “Truth Seekers” path, the journey through self-discovery, the fulfillment of our Soul life agreements.
Through this process, I discovered that the very qualities that made me feel different, were my greatest assets and all of my challenges were preparing me with the necessary tools to fulfill my life purpose.
All the cycles, timelines, people, places, events, and circumstances were carefully orchestrated by my Soul Life Path and once I calculated my numerology chart, all the pieces to the puzzle came together so beautifully.
I learned that in order for me to attract my highest possibilities in life, I needed to raise and maintain a rather high-energy field. This takes practice, devotion, and trust in a benevolent Universe.
It is not so much about learning who I am as it is accepting, allowing, and knowing that I am constantly changing, growing, and evolving. The journey never ends.
From my experience, once this door opens, there is seldom a sobering turning back. The Truth Seeker within us, our inner compass, and North Star will never deceive us but rather supports our exterior landscape with the guidance and resources needed to further advance our spiritual growth.
The most enlightening process when I work with individuals in my Mentorship program is the practice of raising our energy field in order to become, evolve, and attract possibilities beyond our daily belief system.
Once we open our eyes and hearts to our grand potential, we connect to the inevitable bounty of a limitless universe.
Setting intentions based on a deeper truth about ourselves activates a momentum of abundance and manifestation that moves rather quickly.
It is comparable to letting the racehorse out of the gate.
This type of commitment is not for everyone. Those who have worked with me will attest to the amount of honesty, willingness, discipline, and self-love required to grow at this capacity. It is not for the spiritual wanderer but set up to advance the spiritual warrior.
For those who have graduated, I salute you. For those who are curious, I welcome you!
There is nothing more powerful than polishing our very own golden Buddha, sometimes it takes some excavating, research, and finesse but the journey inward always holds a treasure worth the effort. If you would like more information, please contact me through my website.
Have a Golden week. Namaste’
