When a President of a country declares that he will personally fight and die to resist foreign forces, the stakes are set high.
President Bashar al-Assad issued that threat in an interview with the Sunday Times in London. He proclaimed that Syria ‘will not bow down' despite international threats of sanctions.
But, as you will see, the energy occurring in the world right, especially since 11.11.11, is enabling us to re-balance and shift on a profound level.
Sometimes a shift takes things to a boiling point.
Syria declared independence from France on April 17, 1946. This gives Syria a powerful 32/5 Life Purpose Number – the very same Life Purpose that Israel and the U.S. have.
Freedom and independence are keywords of the 32/5. So is risk and putting your fingers in too many pies… the shadow side of the number 5 can dissipate with indecision, impatience and irresponsibility.
“Syria” adds up to 8 in the ancient Chaldean system I use for current names.
Mixing an 8 name with Syria's 17/8 Day of Birth attracts fateful and karmic events. Add the risk-taking, magnetic 32/5 Life Purpose into the mix and you have a formula that can bring tremendous tension.
We also must look at the President of Syria's numbers.
Bashar al-Assad was born on September 11.1965. His birthday on that day creates an unconscious trigger, since it is now associated with 9/11.
Additionally, name ‘Bashar al-Assad' adds up to 12/3 – the ‘Victim' or ‘Victimizer' current name number. So he will bring on situations in his own life that trigger feeling victimized or causing others to feel that way.
He takes on an additional current name as ‘President Bashar al-Assad'. Unfortunately it adds up to another challenging number – 13/4.
13 current names attract sudden upheaval, so that new ground can be broken.
Just today the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erdogan issued a dire warning to President Bashar al-Assad, saying that he will follow Libya's late Moammar Gadhafi if he does not step down. Turkey has a long border with Syria, and is a former ally and trading partner. And last week the Arab League suspended Syria from membership demanding the violence in that country stop.
In the final weeks of 2011, the future in the Middle East is looking very uncertain. Things have definitely come to a new boiling point since 11.11.11 with new protests in Cairo.
This uncertainty will continue into 2012 and will be felt worldwide.
World events are only an outside expression of the energies we must address within ourselves.
We too are being asked to confront unresolved issues and uncertainty head-on… with complete honesty and transparency. Always hold the intention of peace when there is conflict. When you feel divided, as yourself, “how can I rebalance this moment of opportunity?”
Internal conflict is felt as stress in the body. When contemplating a decision or addressing an issue with someone pay attention to how you feel. At ease and clear, or tense in your throat, shoulders and abdomen?
Sometimes you can't ‘feel' if your decision is correct until you speak your words or act on it!
That's ok… use the next moments to rebalance the energy and fearlessly walk through the 11 gateway.
Confronting your fear of being vulnerable is very important right now. During this time of empowerment, your fears are your true guides.
Fear is only a mirror. Looking straight at the fear can be akin to dying and being reborn. Which is why we avoid confronting our issues. Who wants to ‘die', right? Well, death is absolutely necessary in life. Without it, we are inanimate and stagnant.
So when you look in the mirror, instead of recoiling, take your life into your own hands.
Smile and say, “Thank you. I am grateful for this opportunity to feel at peace.'
Your moment-to-moment decision to walk through the 11 gateway is the greatest gift – to you and, by extension, the world.
Much Love and Gratitude,
