Thanks to Kerrin for her comments and questions from the last blog entry. I started to answer her in the comment section, and then this became longer than a short answer, so I decided to post it for everyone’s benefit. Consider it a mini class. 🙂
You could say that all dates have significance, as no day is exactly the same as any other. Sept 29, 2009 in looking at it written out as a reduced number date, does have two 11s. However, it is in the number reduction pattern where we find the most significance. Though every 29th day of a month carries an 11 aspect to it, it is not the full nature of the date. And though we are currently in an 11 year, the first in 99 years, again, it’s the full date that we look at. To do otherwise would be like trying to say – sum you up by your middle name only. Your middle name has purpose, but it is not the whole of who you are. As a name or as a numerological consideration.
9 is the humanitarian number that never takes away, so certainly, 11 energy is present on this date. It also depends on the method of number reduction. Possibly a “purist” way to look at dates is to add the full 29 + 9 + 2009 = 2047 = 13/4. As we know in modern numerology, 29 and 11, though related, are not the exact same vibration. And we like to honor each collective as they truly are.
Another method of reduction is to reduce just the year, then add. This would give you 9+29+11 = 49/9. And yet another accepted method is reduce month and day together and then add reduced year. 9+29 = 38/11 + 2009/11 = 22. This is a less common way of looking at a date and requires more steps, so in that regard, I consider the 22 to have less influence. And of course the 31 you mentioned by reducing 9+11 = 20 + 11 = 31, reduces to the base number 4. 4 is the number of structure, boundaries, organization and law. Think of how an outline or a skeleton is so important to serve as a foundation and you’ll understand the basic energy of 4.
That being said, when I post dates of significance, it’s because there is more than just a significant number involved, converging upon that point in the calendar. I find when you look at multiple parts of the whole pie and find several parts of significance in the same spot – that’s where I get more interested. Many times we don’t realize until hindsight just how the energy shifted on those dates and foundations were laid for the future. For instance – oil was discovered at Spindletop on a master number day during an 11 year, after a series of significant patterns that took place prior. At the time, there was no way anyone could really understand the significance of what took place there. And yet, it was a turning point for every bit of our modern society and transportation as we know it.
One of the primary laws we numerologists supposedly operate by is that “What’s bound on Earth is bound in Heaven.”
If this is the truth, then by that very law, when you have a variety of long-term highly accepted methods of reduction, no matter what school of thought they come from, they must all have validity and value. And you have to consider them all.
Because of this very nature, I don’t endorse the idea sometimes out there that “this one way of number reduction is the correct and only way to do this.” Especially when there are major schools of thought that have been around a very long time. Not much better than religions arguing with each other over who is most righteous and knows God best. There are many paths and many flocks. This is just my way of looking at number patterns. I like to see it all.
I hope this answers your questions! Thanks again for your post!
