The Numerology of 2014
by Owen K Waters

According to numerology, 2014 is a “7″ year: 2 + 0 + 1 + 4 adds up to 7. The influence of that number makes 2014 a year of deeper focus and realizations. However, you might wonder why the effects of numerology work in our particular calendar system when there are other calendars in use around the world.

Different calendars use different numbering systems. In the Hebrew calendar, the year 2014 equates approximately to the Hebrew year 5774 while the Islamic calendar sees the start of the year 1435. Other calendar systems include the ancient Chinese calendar, the Hindu calendars (that’s calendars, plural), not to mention the Assyrian, Buddhist, Burmese, Coptic, and Japanese calendars.

But, who says that 2014 is the correct number to describe that year? How can it be a “7″ year when other calendars call it something different than 2014?

The key is, numbers have an effect on life. If you SAY that the year is called “2014,” then it will affect you in a number “7″ type of way. And, when billions of people say that it is 2014, then you have a huge consensus of consciousness creating a “7″ year.

In other words, the numbers work because we declare them to be so!

It’s that old rule of consciousness: “Act as if, and it will be so.”

And, when billions of people act as if, then it will be so… big time!

As a “7″ year, the upcoming 2014 is a time when the world will focus within to realize deeper truths. From these realizations, new courses of action will spring forth. They may simply understand their work more deeply but, for spiritual seekers, this will be a great year for gaining a better understanding of the universal laws of abundance.

2014 is a year to contact deeper levels of consciousness within yourself, to reconsider everything about your life so far, and to reinvent yourself through new courses of action.

The influence of this year will help you see new opportunities to realize more of your potential in life.

Have a wonderful 2014!
