54

file-3

I’ve always loved numerology. While I don’t run my life by it, it’s fun to see patterns in our life at various stages. Following is some information about 54.

If you’re an English-speaking numerologist you may like assigning 1 to A, 2 to B etc. Add up the numbers associated with the letters in LOVE and you get 12 + 15 + 22 + 5 = 54

54 is half of 108

A Rubik’s Cube has 54 colored squares

54 is also reduced to 9.

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 9

The last of the cardinal numbers, the 9 is the most worldly and sophisticated of all numbers. The 9 has some similarities with the 6. However, whereas the 6 as a symbol of motherly (or fatherly) love, giving its love and care to friends, family and the immediate community, the 9 offers it to the world at large; the 9, more than any other number, has global consciousness. Looking at the shape of the symbol is, as always, quite telling. The 9 is like the 6 upside down, a symbol of her offering sympathy and compassion to everyone; a reservoir of giving with a generous downward spout.

The 9 lives in the world and understands the connections between all of mankind. It is a humanitarian, and sees no real difference between its neighbor next door and the person living in a very different culture and environment on the other side of the world. The 9 is the least judgmental of all numbers, the most tolerant and the most conscious.

Neither specifically masculine or feminine, the 9 seems more feminine, in large part, because she is so loving and empathetic. She walks like a queen, tall and statuesque, yet feels closely connected with the rest of mankind. At the same time, she is hard to reach, seems aloof and tends to float above the small-minded issues that can be so upsetting to others. You either love her or loathe her, but you can’t deny her the respect she demands. She has impeccable taste, is talented and creative, and can be quite eloquent when she expresses herself.

The 9 is called the “Mother Theresa” number, because when she sees injustice or suffering, she will not hesitate to devote herself to rectifying it. More importantly, she will not dedicate any energy towards receiving credit for her actions; the purity of math that is manifested when she adds to the lives of others is mirrored in the way she goes about doing good: she will not force herself upon others.

Personal Year – 9
Reflection and Reaching Out
Personal Year 9 represents fulfilling and closing cycles and readiness to advance in the coming year to a higher level with the Personal Year 1. During this time a people can feel that their property, situations and people are “getting out of hand,” and those who have no desire for change or progress can feel anxious and restless. It is a human nature to stick with what we have, but there are also people whose uncertainty does not let go of things even if there is no hope of success. It is sometimes said that a drowning man will clutch at a straw, and this also applies in this case. As well as vibration of Personal Year 7 may also vibration of Personal Year 9 cause a lot of trouble and confusion, but the difference is that while vibrations of number seven are important for the growth of spiritual awareness, vibrations of number nine are important for growth of personal awareness and responsibility.

Friendships and romantic relationships can come to an end in this period. People may move, change jobs, make long journeys, change the direction of their efforts, or lose something that is of great value to them. It is also the year in which people get responsibility, or they will take on the responsibility themselves. It may be within the family through marriage, birth of a child, or purchase of property; or it can be outside the family in connection with employment or social activities. People have the opportunity to become responsible for themselves, and to be responsible for some aspect of their life that they always wanted to change.

During this period people are forced to reorganize their priorities, and this ignites many thoughts that are taken to the next cycle where they are developed and expanded.

All activities and responsibilities of this year increase awareness and enable personal and spiritual development. Personal Year 9 is one of the most difficult years (together with Personal Years Four and Seven), but among all the difficulties that people seem to attract during this time it gives them the opportunity to learn something new and develop their personality. It is crucial to know what to look for, but when you go through your life, year after year, and compare your personal years with your successes, challenges, joys and lessons that each of these years brought to you, you will understand life a bit more than before.

Weekend Yoga Retreat – November 9-11

We had an early taste of Autumn over the past week in New York City. A coolness in the air. Jackets came out. While the Labor Day weekend is an artificial transition into Autumn, we felt the shift.

While there is still another week or so of official summer, the leisure of the summer months is over, and we find ourselves navigating new schedules for school, back to five-day weeks at work, and the anticipation of the rush up to the end of the year. Within that transition, we can begin to feel unsettled, ungrounded and unstable.

In the thick of it, we tend to create lists and jump from task to task without even pausing to get a sense of completion. We don’t seem to allow even the smallest notion of completion to enter the picture of our daily lives. We’re just onto the next thing.

At the end of my day, I always sit quietly and acknowledge my experience from that day. Oftentimes, that experience doesn’t necessarily match the picture in my mind of how I think things should have been. Nonetheless, I acknowledge my efforts with a hearty “great job” or “Dennis, you did that best you could.” This acknowledgment is important in creating a sense of completeness. A moment to pause and see all I’ve accomplished. In that process, I quiet the noise of the inner critic. I begin to clear some of the clutter that’s no longer of use. I get rid of what no longer serves me.

It’s through our practice we find this. Our practice offers us a toolkit we can use as we journey along our path. Our Dharma is our truth and being awake in every moment along our journey. It is the foundation for a meaningful life. When we live according to these principles we find the peace and joy that is always within us. We find compassion and awareness that’s always there. We release what no longer serves us.

I have the great honor of leading a weekend retreat in conjunction with the beloved NY Loves Yoga community in a beautiful house in the Pocono Mountains. Join me November 9 – 11 for a powerful weekend when we’ll take a moment to pause to reflect on all that we’ve accomplished over the past year. We’ll explore together how the teachings of our practice can keep us grounded and awakened on our way to clearing a lot of the clutter and the noise in the mind. You’ll leave with tools to navigate the challenges of life in the immediate and throughout your life. Click here for more details.

Be well.

December Happenings and Special New Years Day Class

Happy December! As we move into the holiday season, we can feel rushed along by the rush of things. If we’re not careful, we can miss the really important things. I’m encouraging my classes to take five minutes in the morning and/or evening through January 1 to sit still and pay attention to the breath. Try not to get caught up in what to call this. Just sit still and breath. Slow down. You’ll find calm and clarity in the midst of the holiday chaos and there’s potential for people to like you more.

Schedule Changes

Start next week (December 11, 2017) I’m shifting my 12:15pm on Mondays at Brooklyn Yoga Project to Tuesdays. With that, I’ll be adding a 1:00pm on Mondays at NYHRC 45th Street. Join me. You can always find my full schedule here.

Special New Years Day Class

Join me and the rest of the marvelous community of NY Loves Yoga on January 1, 2018 from 2 to 4pm at NY Loves Yoga for a joyful and uplifting class focusing on skillful effort. There’s a lovely little gift included. Space is limited so book here now.

March Happenings and Beyond

I trust in these early months of 2017 you are keeping up with your practice. Our practice gives us a much needed break from the noise around us to allow the nervous system to calm and correct itself, a stilling of the body, and a quieting of the mind. We notice as we clear the clutter and debris from both body and mind, our clinging to those habitual Continue reading
