Looking at Numerology and Lucky Charms

Do you have a lucky pair of pants, carry a charm with you at all times to inspire good fortune, or consult the astrological gurus before you set foot outside your front door?

I believe that we can make our luck, and I am also a huge advocate for the affirmation ‘thoughts become things, pick good ones’.  However, lately I have started to question if there may be a higher force at work.

Over the past couple of weeks, I have seen the number 2222 everywhere.  I’ve seen it on receipts when I’ve done my food shopping (in the code NOT in the price tag – I don’t eat that much!).  Every time I glance at my alarm clock or check the time on my phone it reads 22:22.  It happened so often that I decided to investigate.

According to Numerology, the number 2 relates to your divine life purpose and your soul mission.  I liked the sound of that, so I dug a little deeper.  22 is made up of the number 2 appearing twice, therefore amplifying its attributes.  According to Numerology, I am being encouraged to work diligently on my life path and soul purpose.

It’s fantastic stuff, but what if I don’t have a clue what my life path and soul purpose are?  I decided to look out for other signs.  I began to notice certain songs being played over and over – not the recent chart stuff, but songs from the 1980’s, in particular, I kept hearing ‘Gold’ by Spandau Ballet. 

Delving further into the Numerology I discovered that the number 22 carries the energies of intuition, adaptability, personal power and expansion.  This number is all about power and accomplishment.

When I listened to the lyrics of ‘Gold’ I kept replaying the chorus over in my head:

Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructible
Always believe in, because you are
Glad that you're bound to return
There's something I could have learned
You're indestructible, always believing

It struck a nerve.  Suffering from self-doubt has been my biggest challenge over the past few years.  As a child and teenager I didn’t have this problem, in fact, I was so far the other way that I must have annoyed all my family and friends with my confident airs and graces.

Turning my life around following my divorce was a long, hard slog but I did it.  I became indestructible, and I got my power back.  Tony Hadley must have known this was going to happen – I say this because I was only 13 when Gold was released and still in my confidence comfort zone!

Piecing together my recent findings I realised I was pulling this all-powerful energy to me.  The songs on repeat were a sign to say I was on my right path – You're indestructible, always believe.  The 22:22 illumination on my alarm clock was there to remind me to bring things through to fruition and successfully manifest my dreams. 

The number 22 can turn the most ambition dreams into reality, and the repeating number asks me to see the larger picture.  In the same way that I use ‘thoughts become things, pick good ones’, I am able to see that everything going on in my life is spot on.

I am taking great comfort in this as I venture into a new teaching project within my business and release my debut fiction novel, knowing that I am where I’m supposed to be.  I shall also be keeping my eyes peeled for a four leaf clover from now on!

Do you have a lucky charm or see/hear signs on repeat?  I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.


  1. Hi Shelley. When I read this post earlier today I was trying to think 'Mmm....have I noticed any repeated signs coming my way recently?' Nothing sprang to mind. However, I have just opened an email from one of my aromatherapy students and something just clicked with me. In our last class, we discussed Rose essential oil. I admitted to the class that I love this oil so much that I wasn't always generous in using it on my clients. I was a little bit selfish with it I'm afraid. But at the moment I was out of it and I really must order a bottle because it has been on my mind quite a lot recently. I was looking at my almost withered vase of Valentine roses and deciding whether to press them or make some pot pourri. I most definitely won't be throwing them across the hedge. I also realise that while downloading images from google, I have been subconsciously collecting images of red roses!
    The email from my student was as follow:
    Thought you might like this piece i found on Rosa Centifolia. (Valerie Ann Worwood)

    The depth of this fragrance tells all who come near that this is soul perfume, or a perfume of the guardians or messengers that some times sally forth from the heavens, to guide us and stand by us in times of need or of joy. The etheric realms associate rose absolute with the desires of the human heart.

    It is completing a task perhaps, for which it is born - to send forth the glory of heaven.

    So in the smelling of the rose we can experience the subtleties of the universe. It touches and stirs the spirit, sometimes even awakening the acknowledgement of the Divine mysteries and the glory of Heaven.

    This has left me with goosebumps!!

    1. Thanks for sharing Gloria, it can take a spot of mindfulness to see these signs can't it. When you are aware of them they pop up all over! I love the meaning of your Rose sign. Definite goose bumps :-)
