Forgiving Others And Yourself

"And you know, when you've experienced grace and you feel like you've been forgiven, you're a lot more forgiving of other people. You're a lot more gracious to others." Rick Warren

If you truly want to let go of the past and move forward on your journey, you must forgiving others and yourself.  What prevents you from moving forward? What are the fears, the angers, the judgments that hold you back? You have to stop blaming others for the bad things that happens in your life. And you must stop feeling guilty for things you did or did not.

"It's toughest to forgive ourselves. So it's probably best to start with other people. It's almost like peeling an onion. Layer by layer, forgiving others, you really do get to the point where you can forgive yourself."
Patty Duke

With fear we are ruled and it is our own "ego" that is trying to stay in control with keeping us in fear. Fear to loose our partner, fear to loose our job, fear to make wrong decisions, fear to get ill and so on.

Practice forgiving others and yourself. It is indeed a wonderful process, it helps you to feel released, empowered and free. Think about what bothers you, one story after the other, name the person, analyze the background. Than say loud to yourself, that you forgive (say the name of the person) for what they did to you (name the circumstances). After you repeat that practice several times, you are (#ad) finding peace. Do the same forgiving practice for yourself. When you practice, try to be in a positive mood, to be more effective.

"The ineffable joy of forgiving and being forgiven forms an ecstasy that might well arouse the envy of the gods." Elbert Hubbard

Numerology Calculations - An Art Of Science

life path numbers in numerology


Numerology calculations - what is it and why should it be of importance?

Most of us are not aware that Pythagoras, the father of mathematics is also the founder of esoteric and creative numerology. He believed that there is an order to the universe and that numbers were more than a means of quantifying things.  His philosophies included the idea that each number had an esoteric meaning.

Esoteric numerology predictions, then, is the art and science of understanding the spiritual significance and orderly progression of all things. Every single word or name vibrates to a number and every number has an inner significance. If properly understood and applied, the letter and number code, brings us into a direct and close relationship with the underlying intelligence and vibration of the cosmos.

Pythagoras taught that numbers operate on the spiritual level. With a few exceptions, everything can be factored into a number from 1 to 9 and each numbers has its esoteric meaning in the numerology calculations. Everything is only an interval in a cycle. The number patterns and geometrical ratios give us the explanation of all natural phenomena, musical harmony and tonal qualities. Pythagoras knew that the planets and stars in our universe were vibrating entities that produced sound, which he called the harmony of the spheres.

As an example, the numerology calculations by the date of your birth provides the pattern which we call the Life Lesson. Your given name at birth, can tell you the state of consciousness that you have achieved in this lifetime so far and indicates the record of the growth of your soul too.

Numerology calculations by name and how you can do it by yourself.

The Pythagorean Numerology system is a simple and sequential translation from the letters of the alphabet into the numbers from 1 to 9.
A     B    C    D    E     F    G   H    I
1      2     3    4     5     6     7    8    9

J    K    L    M    N    O    P    Q    R
1    2    3     4      5     6    7      8    9

S    T    U    V    W    X    Y    Z
1    2     3     4     5      6     7    8

An example for name numerology calculation: a person's name is Jane at birth and date of birth is 3, February 1970. 

For the name, adding the digits of the letters we get the number 3 (1+1+5+5=12; 1+2=3).

The only times that life numbers are not further coded into the lowest single digit is when that number is 11 or 22. Ordinarily, 11 would be factored to a 2, 22 would be factored to a 4.

The Essence Of Devine Is Love And Wisdom

In each and every one uf us, there exists a spark of divinity that is a part of holiness, spirit, God or universe, how ever you like to call it. When you fall into the traps of blame or judgement on other people, remember that the divine is present in them just like it is in you and me. We all have the same source, we are all connected on the deepest level of creation. Choose to see and  respect the essence of the divine in other persons. Look beyond your past experiences and thoughts about others, this will enable you to acknowledge the devine love within them.


Sum up all things you know and submit them to careful inspection, and in some elevation of spirit search for the universal of all things, and you cannot conclude otherwise than that it is Love and Wisdom. For these are the two essentials of all things of man's life; everything of that life, civil, moral, and spiritual, hinges upon these two, and apart from these two is nothing. It is the same with all things of the life of the composite Man, which is, as was said above, a society, larger or smaller, a kingdom, an empire, a church, and also the angelic heaven. Take away love and wisdom from these, and consider whether they be anything, and you will find that apart from love and wisdom as their origin they are nothing.

Love together with wisdom in its very essence is in God. This no one can deny; for God loves every one from love in Himself, and leads every one from wisdom in Himself. The created universe, too, viewed in relation to its order, is so full of wisdom coming forth from love that all things in the aggregate may be said to be wisdom itself. For things limitless are in such order, successively and simultaneously, that taken together they make a one. It is from this, and this alone, that they can be held together and continually preserved.

It is because the Divine Essence itself is Love and Wisdom that man has two capacities for life; from one of these he has understanding, from the other will. The capacity from which he has understanding derives everything it has from the influx of wisdom from God, and the capacity from which he has will derives everything it has from the influx of love from God. Man's not being truly wise and not loving rightly does not take away these capacities, but merely closes them up; and so long as they are closed up, although the understanding is still called understanding and the will is called will, they are not such in essence. If these two capacities, therefore, were to be taken away, all that is human would perish; for the human is to think and to speak from thought, and to will and to act from will. From this it is clear that the Divine has its seat in man in these two capacities, the capacity to be wise and the capacity to love (that is, that one may be wise and may love). That in man there is a possibility of loving [and of being wise], even when he is not wise as he might be and does not love as he might, has been made known to me from much experience, and will be abundantly shown elsewhere.

It is because the Divine Essence itself is Love and Wisdom, that all things in the universe have relation to good and truth; for everything that proceeds from love is called good, and everything that proceeds from wisdom is called truth. But of this more hereafter.

It is because the Divine Essence itself is Love and Wisdom, that the universe and all things in it, alive and not alive, have unceasing existence from heat and light; for heat corresponds to love, and light corresponds to wisdom; and therefore spiritual heat is love and spiritual light is wisdom. But of this, also, more hereafter.

From Divine Love and from Divine Wisdom, which make the very Essence that is God, all affections and thoughts with man have their rise-affections from Divine Love, and thoughts from Divine Wisdom; and each and all things of man are nothing but affection and thought; these two are like fountains of all things of man's life. All the enjoyments and pleasantnesses of his life are from these-enjoyments from the affection of his love, and pleasantnesses from the thought therefrom. Now since man was created to be a recipient, and is a recipient in the degree in which he loves God and from love to God is wise, in other words, in the degree in which he is affected by those things which are from God and thinks from that affection, it follows that the Divine Essence, which is the Creator, is Divine Love and Divine Wisdom.
