Back in January of last year, as my birthday drew closer, I had felt something shift inside me.
How do you celebrate your birthday? As a day or birth month? This whole birthday month thing wasn’t a practice that I was custom to, but with this “feeling” growing inside me, I decided to take a page out of the books of my Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio friends, and at least start with a birthday weekend celebration.
The plan was to have a day at the spa to experience a day filled with pampering; a mini facial and a 60-minute massage. All of this was followed by a trip the next day with my eldest daughter to Berkley Springs, West Virginia where we would submerge ourselves in the historic old Roman Bathhouses, healing spring waters.
I booked two days of soaking in the healing waters and doing spiritual practices in them. I put my crystals in the water and charged the water with Reiki energy, and then afterward, we took a trip into nature to meditate. Let me tell you, that water was hot! Now, I hadn’t been in nature in a long time. But after two Reiki sessions, I had received the same message to retreat to nature. What better timing than to do it that weekend?
I had a feeling that with me turning 38 that weekend, something special was going to happen, but I didn’t know what to expect. During the entire weekend, I kept seeing 11:11 and 1:11 on clocks, receipts for food, everywhere. The numbers kept popping up. Because of my spiritual studies with Kabbalah, I knew these numbers were messages, I just didn’t know how to translate them at the time.
How many times have you seen the number sequence 11:11 or 1:11?
I hear from a lot of people that they see them too, but have you ever wondered why you keep seeing them? That was me. Even as I thought about the numbers that made up my age 3+8=11, I knew this birthday was bringing forth something phenomenal. Something special was going to occur. There was no denying what was going on; a change was headed my way whether I wanted it to or not.
In the two days we spent for my birthday weekend, we had hiked almost 10 miles and did a lot of Spiritual connection.
On the second day, we were in the woods and it was misty and quiet. We sat on stones to take a break and found ourselves surrounded by this magical fog. It was a weekend I would never forget.
When I returned home, I eventually forgot about all of the 11 messages from that special weekend and continued on with my life. But, as time went by, a pattern began to emerge; one that kept forcing me out of my comfort zone and into territory that I was not sure I was ready for. Change. It seemed that for me, the messages of 11 meant that I would go through a significant change in my life.
The number 11 is an Angel number and it is a message from the universe.
Sometimes it may be validating what you are going through, sometimes alerting you that something is coming, but if we don’t listen, we may be caught off guard by it all.
As the year 2017 year drew to a close, I looked back with awe at all the major changes that occurred. I truly felt loss this year. The universe pushed me to expand my thoughts and views of the world around me.
I was asked to reassess many commitments that I had in my life.
I had left a spiritual practice that I thought I’d be part of forever. I found my feminine power by saying “I’m almost 40 and do not need your permission,” which became my go-to statement for drawing in the confidence to stand up to my overbearing husband. I had shed my fears of unworthiness and the insecurities that “I can’t do it.” I became a natural stone jeweler, a Kemetic/Egyptian Reiki Master and teacher, and a Holistic Wellness Practitioner. I met women that were similar in thought to me, that loved me unconditionally, and finally found my tribe, where I belonged. I found myself gravitating strongly towards Egypt, finding not only did I have many past life connections to it, but also familial connections as well. I had a stronger connection to my intuition, psychic abilities, and the other etheric realms. And if all that wasn’t enough change for one person (which did make my head spin), I received a Divine message to finally leave my husband of 18 years and let go of the toxic relationship that was holding me back from living my truth and fulfilling my soul’s purpose.
With all Angel numbers, we are given support and encouragement. But it comes with a price.
We must keep pushing forward. Not on auto-pilot or sleepwalking through life, but rather, conscious in every area of our life. So, I ask, how will you let your world transform for the better when you see 11:11, or 1:11? Because the Creator/Universe is calling on you, saying it’s time.
Change is required, but only if you are willing to accept. Will the discomfort be in your control? Otherwise, the resistance will create more pain and discomfort in your life.
