7 + 7 = FREEDOM

Updated: Nov 2, 2022

I was born on 8/9/1988.

8/9/1988 = 43 = 4 + 3 = 7

A 7 Life Path.

A 7 Destiny.

My entry into the world was eventful. I came through the Lion's Gate. On 8/8/88 my mother was told by her doctor, at what she thought was a normal pregnancy check-up, of my early by 4-weeks plus imminent arrival. I needed to be taken via Cesarean Section (C-Section) immediately. My father rushing all three of us to the hospital. Once at the hospital an interesting desire from the doctor to keep me in a little longer for my “lungs to develop,” pushed that immediacy to minutes after midnight on Tuesday, 8/9/88. Aha! I arrived. Early for those anticipating my arrival, but just in time to breathe life into this 7 + 7 individual.

The Lion’s Gateway, also known as the 8/8 portal opens between 7/26 and 8/12 every year, with energy activation peaking on 8/8. According to numerologist Melanie Beckler:

The Lions Gate is a time of increased cosmic energy flowing between the physical and spiritual realms. This astrological and spiritual gateway has roots that go back to ancient Egypt and for thousands of years has been observed and honored as a time of a great energetic influx and activation! The 8-8 Lions Gate Portal is marked by the numerology of 8-8, the Sun's presence in the Astrological sign of Leo the Lion, and the rising of the star Sirius on the horizon. As the star Sirius rises in the sky, Orion's Belt directly aligns with the Pyramid of Giza, and from our perspective on Earth, it appears that Sirius (the brightest star we can see) comes closer to the Earth.

For a little “cosmic perspective,” the star Sirius is twice the size of our Sun and 26x brighter! This is why the Lion's Gate is such a profound and powerful source of spiritual light…[1]

The number 7 is mostly associated with luck in the West. For me, 7 represents understanding – understanding why, understanding meaning, understanding mission – the distinct, clear mission I arrived with.

It is said that we each incarnate with a clear purpose and mission, but access to our mission map is buried deep within our subconscious (our soul's urge) once we arrive in human form. Our lives are littered with indicators – road maps and signs – to remind us of our journey along the way.

I've spent the first 33 years of my life piecing together that mission map, and it is now in year 34 that I fully understand the mission.

The past 5 years of my life have been a true awakening period. To say that they were littered with road signs would be an understatement. More like bombarded with billboards! These past five years have felt like what I would imagine navigating a meteor shower in a space vessel to be. Turbulent. Learning to steady the ship amidst chaos.

Unbeknownst to me at the time, I entered a prolonged period of highly spiritual master vibration starting at age 29. The number 29 reduces to master number 11 in numerology. It is interesting, because it is the age when the majority of us experience our first Saturn Return – the period of life when a number of occurrences transition us away from our naïve youthful years into responsible adulthood. I entered a 9 personal year when I turned 29. 9 is the number of completion, endings, and letting go to make room for the new. It is also the sign of wisdom.

It was at 29 that I began to see those billboard reminders of my mission – literally! They came in the form of the repeating number 333. I went through a period where I would literally look down at my car dashboard and see 333, look up at the sky and see 333 on a billboard, all as I am passing a gas station with a large digital clock stuck at the time 3:33. I thought I was going nuts, until I just looked it up. This description of the angel number resonated with me the most:

As a general wake-up call, seeing 333…repeatedly is a sign from your divine protectors – the angels – that were created by God to guide you throughout your lifetime on earth. In the spirit realm, you also have spiritual guides that show up during certain phases of your life to assist you on your journey…Stay assured that this 333 message comes from high vibrational light beings, and they are here to tell you that you are totally protected, loved, and on the right path…you are receiving an angel message of encouragement, and are being reminded that all things are possible through persistence and a positive mindset. Whether you have had a setback in your career, been dealing with relationship matters, facing health issues, or are just feeling hopeless, you remember that you can change the world that you live in by changing the way you think.[2]

Now, while those on a 7 life path (as I am) are seen as spiritualists, sometimes reluctantly, I was definitely on the reluctant end of that spectrum for the first 29 years of my life. My highly logical mind couldn’t make sense of these messages that went beyond logic, but it was this prolonged moment in 2017 that switched something on inside of me. I understood that I should pay attention and follow the signs. The meaning of 333 deeply resonated with what I was going through at the time (leaving an unsatisfactory job, the ending of a 9-year long relationship, feeling like I was meant to accomplish larger things, not knowing how best to move forward) and it was this bombardment of signs that made me look at numbers differently. I have been looking at numbers differently ever since.

I would go on to part ways with my boyfriend at the time (though we are still great friends to this day), leave the job I was at for a Director role at another organization, and understood that I still had many levels to climb, and roadblocks to overcome before I got a clear picture of the destination of my life’s journey.

The billboards kept coming. All types of numbers would catch my eye and deliver the right messages in the right moments and at the right time. They were no longer just single digit repeating numbers, but becoming more complex. It was in December of 2018, on the eve of entering what I now know was a master number 11 personal year for me (a highly spiritual vibration to add to my already highly spiritual 7 life path, 7 destiny, and 11 soul urge), a number entered my life that would wake me up a little further. Then there was another, and another. The meaning behind these numbers, always the right messages for the exact moment. I was still a little creeped out, leaning on logic – my brain – to convince me that there is no way that this can make sense. Was I really being communicated with through numbers? Was all of this just coincidence? Am I going insane?

It was on 7/25/2019 that all of my doubts would be resolved. It was such a mysterious, disturbing, and magical day. An unforgettable day, with so many indicators that would etch it forever in my mind. The full story is for another blog post, but it was the day that a series of interesting events had me stumble upon the first spiritual Yoda to my Luke Skywalker, the Mr. Miyagi to my Daniel, the Master Splinter to my Leonardo. It was on that day that I began to see numbers not just as messages, but as indications of a person – indications of what each person is meant to do/accomplish in this life. Numbers are a key to the mission map. Numbers are a key to my mission map. Numbers are a key to your mission map.

7/25/2019 (depending on how you calculate it) ended up being a very rare master number 44 day. A number that I would see repeatedly beginning a year later, and search endlessly for its connection. I now know 44 or 44/8 to read “Master Power” and realize that it was always a part of the process. It is a part of the mission map – my mission map.

7/25 is also a 7/7 day.

I would go from that 11 personal year, into another job transition, and a master number 22 personal year after that. 2021. The Master Builder year. The jump out and just do it year. 22 or 22/4 is the number known as the Master Builder. I now know that anytime we are in a 5 universal year, I will be in a 22 year. It’s probably the reason why the year 1994 is such a vivid, memorable year in my head. Or the year 2012. 2021 was one of those years – the urge to just get out and go, and start building the empire. I had no idea I was in a 22 personal year in 2021 until a numerologist pointed it out to me. It all began to make sense. And the number that fueled that fire was 44 – this time with a 1 preceding it. 144. I now know it to read “ignite; wake-up; lead master power.”

I turned 33, another master number, in that 22 personal year. 33 – known as the Master Teacher; Master Nurturer. It is at age 33 where I realized that who I want to be is who I am meant to be. It is at age 33 that whatever hadn’t served what I want deep down in my soul exited my life – either voluntarily or by force. It is at age 33 that my lessons from a 29 = 11 age, an 11 personal year, and a 22 personal year allowed me to understand that my Master Teacher and Master Nurturer skills and purpose are all around 44 – Master Power. Igniting Master Power, waking up Master Power, leading Master Power. It is from those repetition of 3’s beginning in 2017 that at 33 my understanding of seeing 333 repeatedly came full circle. And, of course it does – 3 + 3 + 3 = 9.

So, in 2022 – 5 years later, in what is now a 5 personal year for me, I feel the most free. 5 is the number most representative of freedom. It is today on Tuesday 8/9/2022, the day that I turn 34 that I understand the mission. The number 34 reduces to 7 in numerology 3 + 4 = 7.

What I have learned in 5 years is that numbers are a Universal code – a Universal language. They hold a key to our subconscious mission map, and if we are able to tap into their frequency, access to our purpose and ascension is guaranteed.

So, for this Lioness that came through a highly potent 8/8/88 Lion’s Gate, arriving just a few minutes after peak activation on 8/9 was just in time to deliver a 7 life path and 7 destiny. The real power of the 8/8 is 7 – the Master of Success – the successful mission. 8 + 8 = 16 = 1 + 6 = 7.

And the mission of the 8/8/88 activation is 5 – freedom. 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 32 = 3 + 2 = 5.

It is now at 34, a 7 age in a 5 personal year, that not making the news for being born on 8/8/88 finally makes sense. In order to receive full power and meaning from the 8/8 portal and 8/8/88 activation, it had to be 8/9. In order to go through a 5-year long master-full spiritual awakening in this moment it had to be 8/9. In order to master build every 5 universal year it had to be 8/9. In order to fully unlock my mission map, and the mission map of others it had to 8/9.

Call it luck or fate, the mission is clear. Ignite, wake-up, lead Master Power. Understand thoroughly what it means to be awakened – free, and use that understanding to explore the constructive use of freedom. Because I was born on 8/9/1988, I have been able to understand Universal code, and with that Universal code unlock my mission map. What it reads: it is time to decolonize the world.

8/8 = 7

8/8/88 = 5
