I need to be inspired before I can write an editorial. I became inspired when thinking about the year as a number The year 2016 equals 9. The number 9 is wisdom and completes one full cycle of experience. Completion and closures are key issues for this year or another way to think about this is as endings, transition, clarity and wisdom. Nine is the clearing house in which you make room for the new. You may find yourself wanting to reorganize, clear out items that no longer serve you or bring you joy. This could include all types of movement and change on a personal level as well as national and international.
Pythagoras believed that numbers had souls as well as magical powers. According to Pythagoras “Numbers rule all things”.
In my research I have found the following attributes of the number 9. Nine is a sacred number. Nine is the number of wisdom, the number of magic, the number of completion and fulfillment, the symbol of wisdom and good leadership, and the number of heaven. In Hinduism nine is the number of the Creator and in Hebrew it is the symbol of truth.
Nine is the only number that when multiplied its product equals itself. As in 9×9=81, 8+1=9. Go ahead and try it I know you want to.
I wonder what happened in other years that equal 9. Interesting thought maybe I’ll pursue it some other time.
