Today is the twenty-fifth day of the twelfth month. The two and five in today’s date bring forth energies of co-creating change. We are strongly supported in reaching a point of clarity on the changes we wish to see in our lives and in setting goals for the year ahead. We are reminded that we are never alone. Each one of us has a team of loving, supportive beings of light backing us every step of the way, along with our higher self. We are also reminded that everything is always working out for us, regardless of how things may look on the surface. We are being guided every step of the way to the life we desire; we have only to open our hearts and receive. When we believe in ourselves and in our worthiness—and each one of us is worthy, regardless of our choices in the past—we are elevated in every way, and we also allow ourselves to come closer to receiving all that we desire. As we release the past with love and compassion, we make room to invite in the good.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us fourteen, and five. Fourteen is a number of manifesting solid foundations, as well as opportunities and new ideas that support us for the future. Five further underscores the energies of change that are so prevalent today. Five also indicates expansion, freedom, empowerment, and flexibility. Being flexible doesn’t mean tucking tail and giving in, but rather being adaptable and flowing with the path of least resistance in the knowing that the universe is always conspiring in our favor. ‘Adapt or die’ is a phrase that comes to mind. Rigidity is associated with non-movement, death, and stagnation, and while there are times for us to stand strong and immovable in our strength, there is a distinction between standing our ground and going with the flow, and we are guided to be discerning in knowing when to choose one or the other. Tuning into our intuition is always our greatest ally as we seek to make the choices that are best for us.

We are expanding in our spiritual growth, knowledge, and understanding. We do much work on the etheric planes when we are sleeping, and accomplish much soul work in this way. Keeping a dream journal is recommended, as looking back on it later can be deeply enlightening. This can help with revealing repeating themes and patterns, and disparate dreams can weave a tapestry that together tell a whole story and provide a bigger picture, or bird’s-eye view, that can unveil deep and invaluable understandings and guidance for our life path. Noticing also the unbidden thoughts that come into the mind in the form of ideas, messages, remembered conversations or events, imagery, or songs can be revealing. This is a way that spirit communicates with us—our guides and higher self may send us information and messages in this way. Noticing also where our thoughts are not serving us is very important now, as they are evidence of where we need to rewrite our habits of thought and patterns of thinking, as well as our self-talk. We are asked to come back to the remembrance of our worthiness and purpose for this lifetime, and to move forward in confidence, kindness, and compassion.

Mantra: I welcome the growth and change that serves my highest good to transform me in positive ways. It is easy for me to attune to my truth and my intuition, and to the messages that come from a place of truth.

Today is the twenty-fourth day of the twelfth month. The two and four in today’s date indicate harmonious partnerships. Through our combined efforts and focus, we are creating solid foundations that support enduring manifestations. The doubled aspect of these numbers hints at an increase in outcomes resulting from cooperation. Today, we are especially supported in the intentions and efforts we set forth in a way that promotes the establishment of lasting creations and situations. Long-term goals may be in focus now. We are building a better future, and where we focus our thoughts, attention, and efforts, there we will begin to see results. 

Diligence may be key, as is believing in the highest outcome. Flowing with opportunities and considering the path of least resistance can be beneficial. Something may be hidden; we are guided to tune into our intuition and receive from a clear, protected space before asking for any messages that may be available to us. We can receive messages in any number of ways—through the environment around us, nature or animals, tarot or oracle cards, conversations, or music, just to name a few. Notice where your attention is drawn and what message could be there for you.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us thirteen, and four. Thirteen indicates the manifestation of new beginnings, ideas, and opportunities. The four appearing again further underscores the significance, strength, and solidity of what we are building and creating. Integrity and diligence serve us well now. We may need to be patient as we continue applying our efforts toward long-term goals; one drop at a time will eventually fill a cup.

Mantra: I create harmoniously and with integrity. What I am creating now will be positive, lasting, and generative.

Today is the twenty-second day of the twelfth month. Twenty-two carries aspects of duality, union, partnership, balance, and co-creation. We may be working with friends, partners, business associates, our higher selves, or our allies in the nonphysical to create and manifest unified goals and mutually beneficial outcomes. The results we are focused on creating may have a broader impact outside of ourselves and our co-creative partners. These positive ripple effects may extend out into the collective. We are commended for the choices we make that help others, as this energy continues to build and gather the momentum of kindness, compassion, and goodwill that lifts up others and lets them know they are not forgotten, that there are people who care about them. We are asked today to consider what acts of kindness we can choose to make that will benefit those around us. 

The current energies encourage us to continue making improvements to our own lives and to continue (or begin) tending to our energetic and spiritual health through daily meditation and self-care. The two is doubled twice in today’s date, appearing four times; four is a number of balance and stability. This numeric sequence reminds us that we are spirit first, the greater part of us being spirit, and physical second. Four is also a grounded number that is associated with the four elements, and it guides us to stay grounded and to ground our energy to release what does not serve us into the earth to be transmuted in our process of clearing and healing. Daily meditations help to ground us and also maintain our spiritual and energetic health, as well as our mental and emotional health, strength, and clarity. 

The four twos appearing in two segments of today’s date indicate 4 and 4, or 44, the number of the angelic realm. The two appearing four times also indicates eight, a number of prosperity and abundance. The angels are supporting us in our manifestations and are always available to help us in whatever we are working on, whether that is manifesting and creating the life we desire, protecting our energy, bringing us strength or energetic purification, or anything else. We have only to call on them and ask for their help. We are also reminded of our own strength, and that we are strong, magnificent, powerful beings of light who come from pure Source energy.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us eleven, and two, further underscoring the energies of partnership and co-creation. As we continue to progress toward manifesting our desired life and the outcomes and changes we wish to see made apparent in the physical, we are reminded that we are supported by our nonphysical allies and that we can call on them for support. The energies at hand are supporting our manifestation of increasing prosperity and abundance. Further supporting this, the moon is currently in the first quarter phase and is waxing, or growing. This growing phase brings forth energies of increase and gathering momentum, and we can work with this to support our manifestations.

Mantra: I am supported and loved at all times. I send positive energy to my manifestations as they continue to build and grow.

Today is the seventeenth day of the twelfth month. Seventeen carries energies of new spiritual beginnings and expansion, and we may be reaching new levels of attunement to our intuition and a stronger connection to our inner guidance and higher wisdom. Today brings strong aspects of manifesting good fortune and opportunities that further our intellectual growth and spiritual advancement, and we are also supported in career advancement and in achieving important milestones toward the accomplishment and fulfillment of our goals. Spending time in meditation can help us to strengthen our energy and expand our aura, and can also bring us greater clarity on the best steps we can take that are aligned with our highest path and purpose.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us fifteen, and six. As rapid changes and developments are at hand, we are guided to stay focused on the positive to facilitate greater balance and harmonious outcomes. Five is also a number of expansion, and further supports us in our journey of spiritual growth and awakening. Nurtured with positive focus and energy, our goals are manifested more rapidly into the physical and are more robust. Positive energy, focus, and attention are like nutrients; if we think of our goals as plants and positive energy as nutrients, when we water one plant with nutrients and the other with only water, we know which one will grow stronger and healthier and bear sweeter fruit. Positive energy is supported by the powerful life force and it is creation energy, whereas negative energy is destructive energy. One creates and builds, and the other destroys. This is why, when we are creating something, it is so important to only allow positive energy, thoughts, and focus into the equation. This makes our manifestations so much more powerful, and so much more robust, and ensures their longevity and fruitfulness by providing them with strong foundations. 

Mantra: I am a powerful creator and I choose to focus on the positive. I am growing stronger every day and moving up into my highest path and purpose.

Today is the eleventh day of the twelfth month. Eleven is a gateway number that brings forth the energies that are preparing us to enter tomorrow’s 12/12 portal. This transformative passage spans from 12/12 to 12/21, the day of the solstice. The divine reset point of the full solar eclipse on 12/14 flows through energies of powerful healing and transformation, and promises to shake loose anything that is not working for us as individuals and as a collective. What is not meant for us needs to go, and now is the time to set intentions, if you have not done so already, to release what is not appropriate for you and to welcome powerful healing and transformation.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us nine, a number of endings. Twelve is a number indicating cycles, and this end-of-cycle energy is carried throughout the month of December. Today, we benefit from turning our attention to closures and finales and tuning into what is relevant for us right now. This flows into where we are headed, and we are guided to set intentions and goals for our desired path in the new year. When considering what we would like to happen for us in 2021, we can ask ourselves a few questions: What lights me up? What brings me joy? What new can I feel is ready to enter my life? You may have the sense of something wonderful that is on the brink of becoming. What is helpful now: Trusting that it will come to you in divine right timing and trusting the universe to deliver it to you in the best and highest way possible, then releasing it to the universe. Flowing into joy, peace, and unity consciousness is highlighted now.

During this energetic gateway and at all times, the power of our thoughts cannot be understated. Every thought we have informs our vibration. When we catch ourselves having a negative thought, we can choose to shift it in that moment. If we are looking at something in a negative way, we can shift that by finding a positive aspect to focus on instead. When we witness a behavior that we find less than satisfying, we can find appreciation for the fact that the being expressing that behavior is simply at a certain stage in their journey and may be working through something, clearing it in order to reach higher levels of understanding. Or perhaps their mission for this lifetime is to play a certain role in order to create change or awareness. In a state of appreciation, we open the path for all good things to flow to us, but we block it with any sort of negativity. Today is a powerful day for us to set intentions and focus on where we want to go, without looking at where we currently are or worrying about how we will get there. Energetically aligning with where we want to be will get us there so much faster.

Mantra: I can always find something to appreciate. I choose to think the highest and best thoughts possible in any given situation. I welcome healing and positive transformation.

Ritual and Intention

When we want to create a certain outcome, we begin by focusing on what we want. This is a way of setting intentions. Because we are powerful creators of our own reality, and our thoughts become things, intentions are a key aspect of manifesting change. The more deliberate we are about what we want and the more carefully we choose our thoughts, the more streamlined our focus will be, which allows our desires to materialize more rapidly. We may choose to supplement our intention with ritual because it is a part of our practice, or because it is a means of honoring our allies. Some choose to perform rituals because it is a way of working with intention in the physical world. Writing down what we desire, for example, on a sheet of paper and burning it releases our intentions to the universe.

Most of us participate in rituals in some form. Holiday traditions are often accompanied by rituals like specific songs or foods. Performing these rituals shifts our energy and the energy around us by helping us to focus in a certain way. When we express our gratitude during Thanksgiving, for example, we are honoring and appreciating certain things by giving them our attention, which draws more similar energies to us. Certain holiday dances are ways of expressing joy. Sports rituals can honor a certain team and can focus on a specific desired outcome for a game. Rituals can be elaborate or bare-bones simple; they can be timeless or created in a sudden burst of inspiration.

Accoutrements like tarot and oracle cards are simply tools we can use to tune into the universal energy that is all around us. In ritual, we often use objects like specific colors, crystals, and incense as ways of helping to shift the energy, concretize our intentions by making them physical (like writing down goals and desired outcomes), and to set a mood or create a sacred space. Because physical objects have certain energetic properties, they can support the energy behind our intentions as we work toward making them manifest in the physical world. Cinnamon and bay leaves are associated with wealth; rose quartz brings self-love; sandalwood supports us in protection and healing. Whether or not you choose to supplement the energy of your intention with physical objects and actions is a matter of personal preference. Ultimately, all we really need is intention and intuition.
