'Have you been seeing 11:11? You’re not alone.
According to Numerologist.com, "this year more than ever before, countless people all over the planet have reported seeing the 11/11 code repeatedly appear in their daily lives”.
In the numerology world, seeing 11/11 means, in a nutshell, an awakening. Among a few directives, it represents a manifestation of positive thoughts, gratefulness and heightened awareness. Additionally, it is believed to be a call from the universe to acknowledge your authentic, perhaps higher, self. In my home, as the daughter of a WWII vet and a citizen of the free world, 11/11 represents the day we recognize the preservation of freedom of thought and speech. As an artist, however, it’s a reminder to hone my craft and keep pursuing my authenticity as an artist.
In a time when ‘moral integrity’ is on shaky ground, perhaps this reminder from the universe is a gentle nudge to step up, listen and take action. Our forefathers and 'foremothers' fought for our right to dream big. And, as I strive to find my true self as an artist, I’m reminded of artists before me who were steadfast in remaining true to themselves, despite the assault of backlash, rejection and even censorship.
On this Nov. 11, at 11:00 (11/11/11), I encourage you to stand tall. Whether you are attending a cenotaph ceremony remembering our brave and fallen soldiers, or on a precipice of a spiritual awaking, this is the time to stand up, loud and clear, for what you believe to be true and right. We may have become desensitized and fatigued by relentless instructions and calls to action, but the next time you see 11:11, take it as a sign to WAKE UP!
