I got a message from a reader who kept seeing the number 717, to which I respond:
Dear Suddenly Sevens,
The beauty of numbers is that you can look at them in so many different ways.
Another amazing feature of numbers is that they line up with our own vibrational frequency – we are like magnets to their vibration – we attract them into our lives.
You can see your 717 any many ways.
Add them up & reduce (which is common practice in numerology) to get 7+1+7=15 reduce 1+5=6. Therefore, here the prime number meaning is Six: Six represents balance & truth.
Or – you can pick out the predominant number of the sequence, which is Seven: Representative of esoteric knowledge. Seven’s deal with the activation of imagination and awareness.
Another way of looking at the sequence is seeing it visually – the power of Seven on either side of the number One. One’s deal with new beginnings, and purity. More on meaning of one here.
If you look at the attributes of the number Seven and apply it to the One – you could say that you are in the process of beginning artistic endeavors (first Seven) you are are pure in your commitment (middle One) and you shall end your endeavor with a better understanding and higher awareness (last Seven in the sequence).
I also like to encourage people who see number sequences to draw the numbers – play with them artistically – you can draw or visualize the sequence as a gate (the two Seven’s on either side of the One - hinging open into a new begining) contemplate the various symbolic representations this number sequence can provide.
When we let our minds relax, and just play with the numbers, encourage our minds to dream of them before falling asleep, paint them, write about them, meditate upon them – answers inevitably come to us. Approach your sequence in new & creative ways – you’ll be amazed by the answers and inspirations you will receive.
