Imagine groping your way through a tunnel of darkness, hoping to see some light at the end of it. Well, the number seven seems to be doing just that, throughout his/her life.
The Number Seven is Sacred for Religious Faiths
The Ancient Genesis and Jewish texts propose that the earth was created in seven days, with the seventh day being treated as the holiest day or a day of rest. A few Christians, however, consider the number seven to represent the seven levels of Hell. Further, many religious texts, including the Zohar (Jews) and Bible, proclaim that fields be allowed to remain fallow every seventh year; this gives Mother Earth a chance to rejuvenate herself. This numeral is sacred to Muslims too.
There are various deities associated with the sacred number seven—the Norse Goddess of agriculture or Frigga, the Sun God of Babylon or Mithras, and the Roman Goddess of prosperity or Minerva.
The Number Seven is a Spiritual Number
Numerologists consider the spiritual number seven to be covered by hazy veils; they have to be uncovered one by one, to get illumination regarding the complexities of life. Healers talk about the seven chakras or the seven plexuses in the human body. While a week has seven days, the Ancient Solar System boasted of seven luminaries.
Jewish mystical thoughts are entered into the Kabbalah series of books. A few versions of the Kabbalah talk about seven Sephiroths, where God reveals himself via different spiritual aspects. According to Hebrew tradition, it is necessary to light a candelabrum with seven branches (menorah) on holidays, as well as during the seven-day mourning period.
Miscellaneous Facts about the Number Seven
With so much stress on spirituality, it is to be understood that the owner of the number seven must be quite spiritual too. Do not be surprised if you exhibit a keen sixth sense and an inner perception that can flabbergast those not as psychically aware as you are. Your soul is constantly on an inner search for answers to the grand riddle of life. Your entire introspection, insight and controlled planning revolve round the adage, “As we sow, so shall we reap.” You are a dreamer, influenced by the three M’s—magic, mystique and maturity.
If your spiritual makeup is fragile, then you might come across as a deceptive and insincere person. People may even avoid you, suspecting your dubious character.
It is perfectly apt that this mystifying number seven is linked with deep purple, violet and plum. Amethyst is the preferred gemstone for this numeral. As far as flowers go, deep purple roses and bright irises are hot favorites.
Are you on the hunt for a soul mate? Well, try to dream about the number seven then. But do not get married on April 7 or December 7; they are not supposed to be good dates. It is a common belief that breaking a mirror in the house is an invitation for seven years of bad luck. However, if you happen to be the seventh child of a seventh child, you will possess astounding psychic powers.
