Before I reveal how #225 is connected to my #224 synchronicities, I'll share a bit more about how February 24th relates to humanity overall. In Roman history, it's the day women were allowed to propose to men. It's also a pivotal date in relation to the creation of February 29th as "leap day." As a result, the date became a Christian Feast Day (remember, Rome converted to Christianity thanks to Constantine, which means Europe, parts of Asia, India, and the Middle East all became Christian, too), but it's also the Romanian version of Valentine's Day, Dragobete (Buna!), National Artist Day in Thailand (Swasdi!), Engineer's Day in Iran (Salaam!), and Flag Day in Mexico (Hola!).
Lots of famous folks are born on #224, too, including emperors, dukes, military leaders, astronauts, astrophycists, artists, actors, athletes...heck, even Apple founder, Steve Jobs, was a #224-baby! But, in terms of historic events, let's just say #224's claim to fame includes a deadly plane crash in 2016, a train accident in 2015, a massive earthquake in 2005 that killed and injured thousands of people, a United Airlines flight literally ripped to shreds in mid-air in 1989 (a hit was also taken out on Salman Rushdie on #224 of that same year), lots and lots of wars, revolutions, assassinations, and, for the win, the founding of the Nazi party, which led to the genocide of 12-million people.
Yeah...that's a rough one.
HOWEVER, there have been some good events on #224...like the US Olympic Hockey Team completing it's #MiracleOnIce in 1980! The final score showed Finland with two-points and the US with four...yes, on February 24th, the final scores were "2" and "4." No coincidences!
February 24th is also the day Estonia celebrates it's independence (Tere!), as well as the date the first woman to ever be allowed to speak in the House of Commons was heard in the UK (Keep calm & carry on!). Course, Andrew Johnson became the first US President to be impeached on that date. And, the famous Drury Lane Theatre in London was also burned to the ground on #224, leaving its owner destitute. But hey, the Penny Red became the first perforated stamp in the entire world to be distributed...silver linings??? I'm trying hard here, but sadly, #224's *difficult* history has a lot to do with what's written in its stars.
In Astrology, #224 is known as "the day of sacrifice." And, that's certainly seems to be the case, historically-speaking. The good news for people born on that day is, you have opposable thumbs and a complex brain. Which means, you don't have to follow the ill-fate of the date. I'm not a fan of suffering in general, but suffering because of some cosmic pattern stuck on reset??? Hells no! You can choose your own density...I mean, DESTINY, that is.
People born on #224 tend to give up their own happiness for what they believe will result in (domestic) peace. But, in reality, the façade of sacrifice fades to self-sabotage--the evidence of which literally litters the history of #224 throughout the human timeline. Individuals born on #224 are prone to justifying their own insecurity (and therefore, self-sabotage) by making themselves a martyr. But martyrdom is part of an established pattern of codependency. Any relationship that has to be maintained through martyrdom isn't healthy and, ultimately, won't last anyway. Deep insecurity and feelings of unworthiness plague those born on #224--that's their karma. But karma means repair, not revenge. So, when I say people born on that day suffer from insecurities and fear, I mean it is their karma to OVERCOME ALL OF IT. To clear those negatives and live a life full of unparalleled happiness, joy and love.
If you are born on February 24th, you were born to the opportunity to have more confidence, more love, more success than almost any other day of the year. How is that possible? Because, in order to have that real love, that real success, that real confidence, you must remember who you really are--not the human aspect of you, the divine one. That's true for every human, no matter what day you are born on.
The #224's who have doubts need look no further than Steve Jobs. He may have let insecurity and fear get in the way of his success for a little while...until he kicked Fear's ass! Next thing you know, Jobs went from a poor, washed-up eccentric genius to dynamic, charismatic (and rich-as-fuck) CEO of one of the most innovative tech companies in the entire world.
So, no more crying in your morning cereal, #224's! You absolutely CAN overcome. Unlike his competitor, Bill Gates, Jobs started off life rejected by his birth parents. He was then adopted by working-class people of humble means. And yet, Steve Jobs and his company became leaders in smart technology. World. Wide. Jobs never even went to college. He started Apple in his parent's garage. A true rags-to-riches story if ever there was one.
Just shows how the will to win is more powerful than any other force in the entire Universe. #224's can make ANYTHING happen...you just have to want it bad enough that you never, ever give up. And, when it comes to my #224 synchronicities, perseverance is certainly present!
The #224 synchronicities are so frequent, I even expect to see it in my dreams. That's why I was surprised that the angel in my #Bridges dream gave me #225 instead. Unsure of why, I did the math on #225. Over and over again. The numbers added up to some great messages. But that wasn't what the angel wanted me to see, and, I knew it. That's when it hit me:
While ruminating on the #225 puzzle, it became clear that I'd taken for granted that #225, like #224, could also be a date. As in, February 25th. Yes, #225 is literally connected to #224, but how was that relevant to me???
To answer that question, I merely had to open my eyes....
I'm a writer. And, I write ALL the time. It's constant. Notes, journals, essays, books...a never-ending stream of words. Content to help communicate context. Mine, yours and ours. Since February 25th was nearly a month ago, I traveled back in time by reading...essentially, reading myself. When I did, I remembered something I had forgotten until just today.
On February 25th, I woke early in the morning. A Saturday, there was no need to rise before the Sun. And, when I say "rise," it wasn't from the gentle caress of morning. It was more like being unexpectedly (and rather forcefully) pulled out of the water. Fans of "The OA" will note that I have been referring to that phenomenon YEARS before the show debuted on Netflix. Kind of telling about the experience itself, don't you think??? But I digress....
There was a song playing in my dreams on #225 that stuck with me, even as I rose to consciousness, despite the shock of how I woke. I included it in the video below. Though singer Leanne Rimes is very talented, like my reference to Adele in #Saboteur, I don't own any of Rimes's songs, nor do I listen to her music outside of random pop culture mediums. And, I did see the film, #CoyoteUgly, featuring the song by Rimes (as well as an appearance from Rimes herself), but that was years ago. None of which explains why that particular song would be playing in my head on that particular date.. I must have wondered then, too, because I wrote about it that morning. Harvard's 2014 telepathy study was referred to in my journal. Have to admit, I found that thought comforting. The song has a nice message, after all. And I believe that's what my angel was trying to tell me:
"There's no escape from love.... You can try to resist, try to hide from Love's kiss, but you still know the truth."
And, I do know the truth. But, was I ever the person who didn't??? I've never denied love (or truth). Never tried to hide from it either. Hard to hide when your name is on a website visited by more than 1,000,000 readers from 89 countries (so grateful to you all--thank you!). However, I have tried to heal after loss. "Tried" being the operative term there.
Maybe my angel was telling me to remember the person who did hide. The person who would be sending that very message. A message just for me. Because, despite appearances, I am loved. And, wanted. Very much. Perhaps one day, not too far from now, I may hear that very message from a live voice instead of a song.
With enough #Moonlight, anything is possible....
#AwakeLife #TwinFlames Post-script: Someone I love kindly listens to my never-ending list of #224 synchronicities, and recently suggested that #224 might be related to a positive future event, like the birth of a child or a wedding. It's brilliant, to distract from the pain of loss with hopeful thoughts. I recommend it to anyone who has a particular date that haunts them. Replace the negatives with positives. I know it's hard to do, but holding on to negatives only hurts you. And, hurt people end up hurting other people. Be self-responsible. A broken heart from loss is not going to ever go away. When things get tough, we have to get tougher. Remember who you are--see the Divine in yourself, and you will more readily see it in others, too. Compassion over judgment. Kindness over cruelty. Solutions over problems. Positives over negatives. I believe in you...
