What Are Recurring Numbers In Numerology?
Western divinity often sees recurring numbers as a sign from above, usually given by Spirit Guides who looks over their charge. In Chinese, the belief is that ancestors are the Guides giving hints via numbers to their descendant. In Vedic divinity, recurring numbers refer to a more symbolic significance, rather than Spirit Guides or cosmic intervention. Either way, the appearance of recurring numbers frequently should be taken seriously, or at least paid attention to.
How the numbers appear is not as important, but you will notice a pattern, such as looking at the time when it is 11:11 or 12:12, followed by a car number plate with the same number. In Chinese practices, any object can manifest numbers: fish, wood prints or even random household items. No matter where you have seen it, the more you do, the more you should take note, as they might be trying to tell you something important. Of course, our Guides can send other hints, such as animals or a different sign, as recurring numbers are merely another method of communication.
These recurring numbers are merely part of a larger list numerology has to offer, it is also worthy to note that this is a guide only. Sometimes, Guides will give random recurring numbers that only you would understand, something that has links to events that had occurred in the past. Whatever number it is, you the recipient should be receptive and be aware of the numbers flashing before you.
