Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

What's in a number? A lot more than meets conscious awareness! While this is not a discussion about numerology per se, knowing more about numbers can shift our perception in a broader capacity. For starters, please read my article about 13 ~ which has been enhanced by the wisdom of Architects Jeanne and Erin Michelle.

I'll also share some of my information on 5, which has long been a key number for me. This is excerpted from my e-course that celebrates life in a female body, Loving Our Lunacy:

Embracing Paradox Through the Five Elements. One way to embrace life's seeming contradictions is by connecting the dots: the four directions, the four elements, the four colors of the Mayan Calendar (which correspond to the directions and elements.) The East is Red, Fire, New Beginnings; the North, White, Air, Mind; the West, Blue (or Black), Water, Emotions, Release; the South, Yellow, Earth, Ripeness, Fulfillment. Invoke each of these qualities individually and collectively, feeling the power that surges through your being as you come home to your wholeness.

To take it a step further, consider the quintessence, or fifth element. The Greeks called the fifth element quinta essentia, the pure and concentrated essence or invisible connector that allows earth, fire, water and air to communicate. While the grounding energy of four is significant, five takes us a step beyond, into unexplored territory. It's pure Spirit, the marrow, the core of creation.

There's a lot of power in five, which configures a star. Cross-culturally, five is a centering and balancing element. The number five, as the center of the Native American medicine wheel, signifies the place of transformational possibilities. Five symbolizes access to the Spirit world in the Mayan tradition (the fifth color, green, is not used in the daily Tzol'kin, but applies to the 52-day cycle known as a Castle. The fifth Castle is the Green Central Castle of Enchantment.). Five is a unifying element in Tibetan culture. Coming to balance and resonance means learning to honor the both/and, the dark Moon along with our luminescence, becoming inclusive rather than exclusive.

What is the fifth element in your life, the numinous that calls out to you now? Welcome it in."

This is from Aluna Joy. Since my name, Amara, equates to 7, I found it especially relevant:


March 21st is Mayan New Year, and it falls on the sacred day of 7 CABAN (in the Mayan Tzol'kin, or sacred calendar).

7 CABAN will be the energy of the entire year. Seven is considered the number of the mystic. It is the one that never feels quite at home here or in other worlds. So this could very well be an apprehensive year where we might feel difficult to know where to put our feet down. Our saving grace is that 7 CABAN is in the root chakra of the Maya calendar. Having Mayan New Year fall on 7 CABAN tells me that it is time that we all root ourselves . . . not just in one world, but in ALL worlds.

CABAN is an East Sun representing the initiation of new things. But it also represents earthquakes and things being shaken up. We are already starting to see things shaking up in the news. This can represent a shakeup from global proportions all the way down to your personal life. The Kiche Maya call this day NOJ. It is considered a day of great potential."
Synchronicity keeps rising:

I logged on to Karen Bishop's Emerging Earth Angels site to read her latest Wings post, and she describes the significance of numbers in her encounter with a group of deer outsider her rural home:

"At first they appeared as five…the energy of change. Then came ten…the energy of new beginnings with the zero being an extra energy of special inner gifts. Progressing to eleven, a new portal was opened, with the dual number one serving as pillars of new beginning energy for a wonderful entry point. And then eventually, they emerged as twelve…the final energy of a higher way of being..of a new dimension…of completion and perfection.

And this is what is occurring now for so many of us."
I love the idea of a sacred numbers discussion. I'm not a numbers person, so am ready to glean all I can from those who are. I once wrote a poem about numbers 1-9, personifying them and evolving them as the numbers progressed. You know... one is an individual, two is a pair, three is the couple with their offspring, four is the fortress they build to protect themselves, and five blows it up - psychologically, preparing them for the balm of six love vibrations and the divine love expression of 7, 8 is a tower of power - like two 4's stacked on one another and 9 is the universal blending of all that came before. I'll try to find the poem.
I'm a one. ...its the loneliest number, (coincidentally sung by 3 dog night), the most individual and often the initiator. Of my mothers 7 children - I'm the only one who was given away shortly after being born and was whisked away to live in a natural environment, far away from my alcoholic parents chaotic lifestyle.
I was once part of a healing group, where after a particularly interesting session, we each had dreams and/or visions of one another. Someone dreamed of me... he said everyone he had ever known was there, huddled to the right and I was standing alone, off to the left, wearing buckskin, surrounded by a circle of stones. His dream frightened me then - I had been lonely too long. He did not know that I had been building a scale model of a house I wanted to build on tribal land I'd inherited and on a hill above the house, I had envisioned a circle of stones where I could go to center. 20 years later, I learned that my tribal ancestors were the builders of the medicine wheels found in Canada and Montana. My friends dream came back to me again.
When I wake in the night and look at the clock, its usually something strange, like 4:44 or 2:22. I don't know why, but it seems interesting at the time.

I'm also reminded of sacred geometry. The following is mostly a cut, paste, edit from others who have already thought it through.
"Sacred geometry holds the basic belief that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are also found in music, light, cosmology. It is considered foundational to building sacred structures, sacred spaces and meeting places. Sacred geometry may be understood as a worldview of pattern recognition, a complex system of religious symbols and structures involving space, time and form. According to this view the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred." Metta, Jeanne
I noticed this number in the news today... at 11:11 a.m. PST, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, a psychiatrist who is being accused of conspiring to pump Anna Nicole full of illegal prescription drugs, was booked at Van Nuys Jail in California.
Yes, 11:11 is a master number and a key gateway to awakening; check out Solara's extensive 11:11 information at

The Unfoldment of Number
Nick Anthony Fiorenza

As found in numerical teachings throughout the ages, from the schools of the Pythagorean lineage, to those of music theory, to the Kabbalah, the natural unfoldment of number is fundamental to all life. The principle of numerical progression underlies matter, energy, and consciousness in all of its forms.

Although each number has its own unique character and quality, numbers are not separate from each other, but are intimately linked extensions in one unified, creative process. Here we will explore the sequential character of number in its simplicity--as the division and evolution of consciousness.

It is commonly thought that each number arises from its previous number by adding one (1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 1 = 3, and so on.). In nature, however, we find that numerical unfoldment is also a process of division: e.g., if we take a pie and cut it in half we have two pieces. If we cut the pie again we have four pieces. Thus we are multiplying the number of pieces we have by continually dividing the whole.

Let us further explore the process of multiplication and division in the unfoldment of our primary numbers, 1 through 9. Thomas Taylor, in his Theoretic Arithmetic of the Pythagoreans, develops the following principle: Within the ennead (1 through 9), each number arises from its previous number simply by adding 1, but not all numbers within the ennead are produced by (the product of) two other numbers. For example, there are no two numbers that produce 2, 3, 5, or 7. Nor does every number produce another number within the ennead: 2 produces 4, and 4 produces 8; 3 produces 6 and 9; but 5 does not produce any other number within the ennead. However, 5 does produce 10 from 2--thus 5 is the means for ascension out of the ennead, from all other number. Seven does not produce another number within the ennead either, or even within the decad (1 through 10)--thus 7 is special. Seven is the crown or sacred number, exalted above all others.
As you mention 11:11 probably is the Greatest "Coincidence" (and Re-member there are No Coincidence, No Accidents - Everything happens just at it shall) and that the winter solstice which is the "end" of the Mayan calendar on 21.12.2012 happens when?

You guessed it...

Hi Amara Rose -- I am 1-day new to AOAND and saw your discussion posted last March. I am also at

Love to hear what you think!

Has anyone pondered Lewis Carrol and the number 42?
Oh, wow, did 42 originate with him? I wasn't aware of that connection. I wrote 42 Forever a decade ago based on the theme of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Michael, please enlighten further!

Blessings and thanks,
