Balance in Lemuria
In Lemurian Numerology, 8 is the number for balance, infinity and living between two realities. What do I mean when I say balance? In Lemuria, the idea of balance was synonymous with the feeling of unconditional Love. When we can feel ourselves in an unconditionally loving space and release the fears that have been holding us back, we will find a balance that allows us to trust that life is unfolding in the most perfect way.
Why is balance so important now?
As we move further into the Great Shift in Consciousness or the Turning of the Age, many are experiencing a feeling of compression and a sense of striving for completions of our third-dimensional lesson plans and blueprints. As in the times of great shifts in consciousness during Lemurian times, the opportunity to vibrate to a higher vibrational experience is there as the portals into the 4th dimension are opening now. This is when healing and maintaining a balanced space of love in our hearts becomes so important.
Balancing Between Two Realities
Let’s consider the energy of the number 8. For just a moment, imagine yourself in the center of the eight where the lines cross and there is an “X”. In this space, you are in balance between the world beneath you and the spirit realms above you. The X also represents the "X" chromosome, and it creates a loving balance of the four bodies—the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of you.
A Meditation on Balance
Now, take a deep prana breath and draw the golden particles of the Creator’s Light around the top of the eight, through your crown chakra and into your heart. Feel your heart opening into the balance of love. Then with your next breath, send the energy from your heart down into Mother Earth and feel it come back to you in love. Take a moment to feel the centering space that creates. This circular motion is the nature of the 8 energy that will be prevailing this year.
Infinity: Sending and Receiving in Love
Another aspect of the number 8 is that when it is laid on its side it becomes the infinity symbol. In this energy, how you send something out—a thought, communications or an expression of your feelings, for example--will be the way that it returns to you.
To understand how this feels, imagine yourself standing in the center of the infinity symbol. See yourself sending the energy out with your right hand. Watch it go out, around the symbol and come back to you. If it has been sent out in balance and in love, it will be returned that way. If not, well, you may find that what comes back to you is a bit wobbly at best.
Finding and Maintaining the Balance
So, what can we do to find a loving balance and maintain it? Take opportunities to regularly check in with yourself. Are you feeling balanced? If not, what could you do on any or all of the four bodies to create more balance in your life? Meditate? Really tune into your guidance? Take a walk? Talk to a friend? Turn off the TV and read a book? Finding that centering space will allow us to create an awareness of the love within us and surrounding us: “As above, so below; as within, so surrounds.”
When the "9" finally arrives, being centered in the middle of the eight will launch us into the energy of completions and new beginnings!
Wishing you joyful creating and celebration in love and balance!
