We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Is the number 7 appearing to you in dreams or your waking life? Or maybe you’re navigating a seven life path or a seven year in numerology (hello 2023!). Let’s discover the meaning of the number 7.
The Meaning of 7
The number 7 is the spiritual seeker of the digits. Hungry for knowledge, seven asks BIG questions about the mysteries of the Universe and the natural world. The analytical digit then searches across mounds of data. Never satisfied with superficial answers, seven continues to gather and filter through information.
A bridge between the physical body and the cosmos, the number 7 activates the seven chakras like a kundalini awakening. Connected to the energetic realm, it has a rush of divine downloads.
That’s not to say this number is seated in lotus pose all day. The number 7 is a practical explorer, learning new things through personal experiences and research.
But in a world of false prophets, fake news, and phony friends, the number 7 may be betrayed along the way. Naturally, discernment is key to the number’s highest expression. Trust your inner voice, number 7.
The number 7 has a powerful intuition, but it must stop its zippy chariot to access it. The determined digit is learning to balance logic and intuition. Indeed, information needs downtime to percolate and process. After all, on the seventh day God rested.
The number 7 holds the energies of the numbers 3 and 4 like the pyramids of Egypt. A pyramid has a four-sided cube foundation and four 3-sided triangles that reach towards the cosmos. Pragmatic four sets a firm foundation for higher awareness (three). In essence, seven brings intellectual breakthroughs to our material world.
