Numerology, Birds, and a bit of Faith

Something happened to our family a few months ago that took me by surprise, taking my breath away. It was a huge sucker punch to the gut, and I felt like the sucker. For one of the first times in a very long time I began losing faith. I felt despair and instead of fighting it off per Amylia style, I began letting it engulf me. What did I do, what could I have done differently, how could this happen? Did the Lord not love me? Why is this happening? Do I not deserve happiness?

And so it went, for two months. I was definitely not myself. I was thrown off path, left feeling betrayed, lost, and alone. I stopped working forward in certain areas on my blog. I even stopped praying. My thoughts were things like, “I guess it doesn’t matter if you make choices after praying and getting what you feel are answers.” Apparently the joke is on me. It certainly it did not make a difference in my case. It’s a cruel and ugly prank that has been played at not only mine, but my family’s expense.

And what an expense that was. Of time, of faith, of believing. This kind of hurt was the worst because I felt betrayed by Heavenly Father and for one of the first times in my life I started thinking that it doesn’t matter how good you are, how much you pray, how often you sacrifice to make good choices, how much you serve. At the end of the day what is going to happen is going to happen. Perhaps we don’t have any say in our future. The fact was that my family had unfortunately fallen victim as an after effect of someone else’s wrong doing. There was nothing we could do to fix it. We were a casualty of war. What was done was done. The end.

After feeling quite defeated for some time, something started happening the first week of May. I started noticing numbers. It sounds weird but I cannot deny it. If I looked at the oven clock it would be 11:11. I would fix lunch and notice it was 1:11. When going to bed I would plug my phone in and it would be 11:11. Doing laundry and the time on the wash was 1:11. The phone would ring at 1:11. I was at P’s school and saw that lunch started at 11:11. I started taking note. It kind of woke me up. I looked up what this could mean:

11:11 – It’s a call to raise your vibration, step into your light, and get to work on your life purpose of brightly shining, living as the powerful spiritual being you are, teaching by example and making a difference in the world. 11:11 is in line with keeping your thoughts focused positively towards what you want to manifest. 11:11 is a reminder that your thoughts are manifesting… ~AskAngels.com

The next day the same thing happened but at 10:10, 10:01, 1:10, as well as some of the 11:11 sequences. A few days later I began noticing 12:12 combinations. Now this was getting very strange. So I began taking pictures, screen shots on my phone, to prove it to Doug. He would say things like, “aren’t you just looking at your phone too much?” But no, I was not. For instance, I was at breakfast with friends and thought that I better text Doug to pick up Preston. When I grabbed my phone out of my purse it was 10:10. After breakfast was over I took my phone out of my bag again to text I was on my way home and it was 11:11. Things like this were happening day in and day out for weeks on end.

10:10The number 1 as an angel number is a call to stay positive. It’s a gentle reminder from your angels that your thoughts create, and to stay focused upon what you like and want to see and experience, not on what you don’t. It’s also a message that you’re at a new beginning, and there is support available to you from Heaven when you remember to ask for help.

0 can also represent the beginning of a journey down a spiritual path, and the call to listen to your heart, intuition, and internal guidance as you embark upon a new Divinely guided journey.

When you see 1010, it’s a call from the angels to stay positive, and to focus on your next steps on the Divine path appearing before you.  1010 is a reminder that the entire universe is conspiring with you to help you reach your goals.

12:12 – Instead of just being a message to stay positive about future possibilities, 1212 is a message to stay optimistically focused on your highest possible future, and a reminder that your angels are supporting you in manifesting your goals, dreams, and life purpose. ~AskAngels.com

Then I had a friend come visit me who her entire life has seen 5:55. After she left I began seeing 5:55 all of the time. Were her angels also trying to help me? I text my friend random pictures of 5:55, letting her know that her angels were still here.

5:55 – 555 is a sign of positive changes that are bringing you into greater alignment with your soul purpose, and with greater love, vitality and abundance. ~AskAngels.com

To tell you the truth, I’ve never been one to really REALLY believe in numerology. It’s neat and everything and fun to read about, but do I really think that my angels are talking to me? Hummm, not quite sure.

Then something pretty neat happened. My mother in law bought me a new wreath for my door when visiting. Not long afterwards I noticed each time I opened the door a bird would fly away. Upon investigation, I discovered that there was a little bird nest up on top of my wreath. During the day Doug and I would sit out in the sun on our porch, listening to podcasts, and we would enjoy watching that sweet little bird.

Numerology, birds, and a bit of faith

Little Finch Eggs inside their nest carefully made on top of my front door wreath.

Somehow that little bird started bringing happiness back into my life. She became something fun in my day and to look forward seeing. A few times, when opening our front door, she would accidentally fly into the house. She would bump her little head on the ceiling as she would fly towards the lights. Now our sweet finch bird has ruffled feathers on her little head. We have grown to love her.

Today I took a step stool and peaked inside her nest. This sweet little bird had laid three little light blue eggs. I grabbed my phone to take a picture of the nest and the time was 12:12 {of course}. Was this little bird one of my angels in disguise? Was she here to help me? The feelings that overcame me as I considered this were those of pure happiness. Those of new beginnings. Those of rebirth. Of hope. These sweet little birds will hatch right at my front door. I feel that coincidence is no coincidence at all. This is a gift. A gift straight from heaven.

As I wait for those little birds to hatch I also wait for my own opportunities to hatch. As those three little birds grow stronger inside of their eggs they will have the strength to poke a hole and little cracks in their outer shell. When they finally do make their way into this world, they will have built up the strength that they need to survive by breaking out of their shells. With the help of their mother, they will soon be taught and have the strength to fly. In a few short weeks, they will be soaring to new heights.

I could not help but to make the parallel to my life and what is happening to me right now. I am inside a shell and cannot see the light. But through this trial I am growing stronger and soon will have enough strength to begin to break free. When I finally do break free, through faith and the help of my Father in Heaven, I will have the strength to begin to fly. As I fly and use my wings I will soon soar, right into the life that I want. Perhaps, even right into the life my dreams.

Here is the thing, I have no idea what the future is going to hold for me. But I certainly have hopes. I have dreams. I know I have things to do. What I do know is that this past month I have been given a gift. Call it angels, heaven, or God, but a gift none the less. So today I start praying. I start moving forward. And today I start believing.
