Hi, this is Jonathan. I'm a Gemini from California. Recently I have begun to come across the number 666 frequently, and am wondering what this might mean.
While the Christian Bible refers to the number 666 as
The Number of the Beast, I think this whole subject has been wildly exaggerated to cause a cultish level of fear. Besides, in the Christian Bible, the practice of numerology is not encouraged, so the obsession that some people have with this number is just silly.
Fear of the number 666, Satan, the Beast, etc., is encouraged by religious groups as a means of controlling the people involved in those particular groups or congregations. Scare tactics have been used throughout the ages as a means of control.
The real reason this number is repeated over and over by superstitious folks is because it's easy to remember, as triple digit numbers always are. Numbers repeat as they will. Once you begin to look for something like that, it just pops out at you more often.
The study of the number 666 isn't encouraged in any way by the writings in the Bible. In fact, some people think the Bible forbids any kind of mystical practice, even though astrologers are credited for saving the life of Jesus more than once. Numerology also falls into that category.
Although the number 666 is usually not usually associated with anything positive, there are some numerologists who say that when a person is transcending from an ordinary life to something more spiritually aware, then the common meaning of a number like this doesn't apply to that person any longer. At that point, it can take on a whole new meaning in your life.
In Tarot, I often see the number 6 as a gift, either material or spiritual, that is coming to the person asking the questions. For instance, if someone is asking about love, the Six of Cups may mean that the person is about to become engaged.
When a person becomes highly aware of something in his or her environment, they seem to see it more often and give it more attention than it probably should be given. Geminis tend to look for meaning in coincidences more than other signs. This isn't a bad thing, for it makes them better at finding the meaning behind their experiences as well.
Ponder what you are dealing with in your life. Do you feel overwhelmed or victimized? That number might show up over and over again to someone who feels like they are not getting a fair deal somehow. When you see this number again, look for a meaning that will further your spiritual growth and understanding.
Metaphysically, it's always a good idea to pay attention when we repeatedly run across numbers, objects or messages. To determine the nature of these experiences, we have to weigh their various possible meanings and then decide which interpretation fits best.
The number 666 has long held a place in some religious sects as an evil number. It is referred to in the Bible as the number of
the beast, and is portrayed in films, television shows and literature as a number associated with the antichrist. Some even believe that once the antichrist rises to power, everyone will be required to have this number marked on their hand or forehead.
Though the exact number varies from one interpretation or translation to the next, in today's world, 666 is considered a sign of the end times. Some biblical scholars have even claimed that the
www acronym of the world wide web can be translated from Hebrew to mean 666.
You don't mention where you have been coming across this number, but if you share society's views, you're probably feeling a bit concerned about encountering it so frequently.
According to scholars, seeing this number is not the same as being marked with it or accepting it. Some people believe that at some point, our government will start using implanted chips to keep track of our citizens, or make it imperative that we all carry identification cards or marks in order to bank, buy or sell items, etc. These are some theories that have grown up over the years regarding the number 666.
In numerology, 666 breaks down into the number nine, which represents fulfillment, harvest and attainment. The numeral nine is also representative of the sign of Sagittarius and the closing month of our calendar year, which we celebrate as a time of completion and celebration.
Because you've recently moved, you may be encountering this number as a symbol of the cycle of life you have just completed as well as a mark of the new life you are beginning.
I would continue to take note of when and where you see this number. You may also want to meditate or keep a journal to see if more signs or spiritual messages arise.
I wouldn't concern myself with doom and gloom religious interpretations because your messages appear to be of a personal nature. Since this number has such a strong cultural meaning, Spirit may simply be using it to get your attention.
Many times in life we hear, "You will always have what you NEED, but not necessarily what you WANT." Your spirit must have needed to experience the feeling of leaving your human body, and the suggestion in the next chapter of Sylvia Brown's book was all it took to get you there.
Even though you hadn't read it yet, your SOUL recognized the title of that chapter as something it had been seeking, and your soul, knowing that you had that reference to read after your experience, got with it and out you went!
While I don't usually recommend her books, Sylvia Brown has a wide reaching and powerful effect on lots of people. A Gemini like you would be able to relate easily to her writing and put it to good use. Synchronicity - you gotta love it!
I like your description of "getting caught." That's exactly what it feels like, isn't it? One minute you're free and hovering above the room, and the next minute, ZAP! back down into your corporeal form you go!
As a little kid, I loved that "feeling of return." With practice, most of the time we can control that event, but sometimes, when our physical ears hear a distracting noise or something else occurs to knock us back into reality, back we go. With practice you will be able to control your return better.
I find it interesting that you were visiting your mother-in-law and not someone in your own genetic family. Evidently, you and your husband got married for reasons that are even deeper than love. His family's interest in "psychic stuff" will nurture your children in such matters and help them to grow into their own abilities.
You'll never have to be concerned that when your daughter visits them, she'll be discouraged from exploring her own psychic life and power. My parents encouraged me to develop my psychic senses in a time when it wasn't nice to even discuss such things in public. Heck, it's STILL not considered a great topic at the dinner table in some families!
Your kids will get to talk about it ALL and ask questions and read and study. This is going to give them such an edge in life! Talk with your husband about how you want to present this to your kiddos, so that you are united in your approach and ready to tell them their experiences are all natural and okay.
A word or two of warning: Geminis often have difficulty staying grounded in REAL LIFE. Don't get so strung out on your ASTRAL life that you neglect what you're doing here on Earth.
You are at the beginning of a long journey to learn where your power really lies. Try to be patient with this process and take your time.
