To the Nines!


When is your birthday? What is the number of the day you were born on? What does your birthday number tell you about you? Numerology is the belief in mystical relationships between numbers and events. Birth dates are often used to describe personality traits, karma, or the destiny of an individual. Personally, I find it fascinating. I also enjoy reading a good horoscope from time to time as well as indulging in other divination tools. Mostly I rely on my intuition to guide me, but sometimes, when the spirit moves me, I will look for messages in numbers.

This might just be my most self-indulgent post ever. Today is my birthday. I am now 45 years old. That’s a 9. (4+5 = 9). Today is the 9th of October. Another 9. When you add up all the numbers of my birthday… you get 9. It’s the number of my soul. It’s also the number of my life’s purpose. The numerology of my name, again, is a 9. Ever since January, I’ve been in a personal year of, you guessed it: 9. Guess what 2016 is? …9. Even in my CREATE! Program I write about the number 9 and how it relates symbolically to creativity.

9s always seem to pop up for me. Sometimes they arrive without much fanfare, and sometimes they kind of freak me out. All I know for sure is that I’m dealing with a lot of 9s right now. I don’t know if I should be excited or nervous! Every time I see one I feel like it’s another eyeball looking at me, just waiting to see what I make of it.


Nine is a number that represents the completion of a cycle. Visually it resembles a spiral, which also symbolizes a journey or path to be taken. It’s a special path in that it is not a direct one, but one that begins within at the core and expands in an outward motion. The spiral is associated with the creative process as it suggests an unfolding of ideas through indirect means. It has a spiritual aspect in that it can represent the nature of conscious awareness, as beginning within and expanding outward to others. That’s why the spiral is in my flying heart logo.

There’s also a humanitarian association with the number nine. People who lean towards a 9 energetically tend to be interested in helping others on a global scale. Nine is the number of compassion and oneness.

As I embrace my life purpose, I embrace the qualities of the number 9. I am also working diligently toward bringing my ABCs of Conscious Creating Program into the world. I’ve been nurturing this baby for years now, and this year I am finally releasing it into the world in a format that can be seen and used in a very practical way. It’s an exciting time for me! So for me, this birthday, filled with nines is extra special. I am filled with immense gratitude for all of the support I have received this year. Thank you clients, friends, and family. I’m very much looking forward to the year ahead with an open heart and mind.

Today on this 9th day of October, see where the 9s show up for you. Need a little help? Check out this totally awesome video about the number 9:
