I see it on the clock. On the odometer of my car. House numbers when I am driving or out running.
These numbers have come to me in the past to let me know that my family members are okay and it is okay to release worry about them. Good to know.
We all have numbers that come up for us frequently. Sometimes it is a single number, but more often it is a sequence of numbers or the same number repeating itself often.
The number two is all about nurturing. It is the number of couples, obviously, and in the study of feng shui it is the number of items in your home you place together when you are trying to attract love. In the case of three twos together, if you add them together, you get six, which is the number of family and relationships.
People who have two in their personal numbers often are people who love to nurture others, but often find themselves in the position of not feeling nurtured or often giving of themselves too much and not being nurturing enough of themselves.
Today while I was out running, lost in my own little world, it seemed that I would just happen to jolt back to reality long enough to notice a house number 222. No other house number jumped into my awareness. Back to my run. Back to my connection with Spirit. About a half mile later or so, I jolted back to reality again. Another house that was numbered 222. Deja vu? Didn't I just pass this house?
Okay, Spirit, what are you trying to say?
I think my family members are okay. There is always something going on, but nothing that I have been losing sleep over. What are you trying to tell me?
"What about your relationship with yourself? Are you nurturing yourself?"
How many of us find ourselves in the position of feeling the calling to save the world or at least our little part of it but do not take the time to nurture ourselves? Whether it is a night out at the movies, or perhaps a bubble bath or a good book, perhaps the message for today is that it is okay to take a day off from saving the world and do something good for yourself!
Treat yourself to something fun, or something that you normally deprive yourself of. Send yourself a silly love note! Eat a piece of chocolate!
No one needs to be Wonder Woman or Superman all the time. Take off that superhero suit once in awhile and be good to yourself! Lay down the worry and know that everything is going to be all right!
Give thanks for all the good in your life, both the things that have come to pass already and those which are to come.
Today, I am thankful for two legs that still can run, a heart and lungs that come alive when outdoors, even if they protest a bit at first. I don't notice my heart beating or my lungs breathing when I am dormant inside sitting in front of the television. It is only when I challenge them, when the breeze blows against me as I make my way through the neighborhood, that I feel most exhilarated!
I am thankful for my connection to Spirit, who continually nudges me to be my best, to do my best, but also to enjoy my life.
What are you thankful for today?
If you are not nurturing yourself, take today and do something for yourself. Look in the mirror and tell yourself that you love yourself!
Of all the things you can be thankful for, be thankful for yourself. Of all the relationships you may enjoy in your lifetime, the relationship with yourself is the most important one! Other relationships may come and go, but the one you have with yourself truly is forever!
