How can 2016 be a 9 Year, and what does that mean? Simple. 2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9.
In Numerology multiple-digit numbers are added together to arrive at a single digit from 1 to 9, unless it’s a master number, but that’s a different story & beyond the scope of this blog post. Each number has certain associated characteristics. Your name adds up to a number. Every letter has a numeric equivalent and there are sites on Numerology that will teach you how to add up the numbers in your name to come up with your name or fate number. You can also add the numbers in your date of birth to come up with your birth number, which will showcase your personality much like a zodiac sun sign.
In Numerology the number 9 represents completion and wrapping things up. It’s also the number of the altruist or humanitarian. It is also a number of spirituality. As such, the personality traits the number 9 lends to 2016 are as follows:
- Altruistic ~ going out of your way to help others with no concern about being paid back
- Humanitarian ~ extending understanding, compassion & kindness to everyone
- Discovering one’s life purpose or soul mission
- Spiritual development and the discovery of new spiritual gifts
- Letting go
The energies of 2016 will center around these core concepts. It’s time for everyone to commit to bettering themselves so that by 2017, which will be a 1 Year (2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1), we all will be ready to grasp all the new blessings that will be entering our lives at that time.
2016 is the year of altruism. Charity work will be important; and for many, it will be important for the first time. You may feel driven to help out more, to donate your money, your time, and your energy to worthwhile causes. Just remember, charity begins at home. Look to your loved ones and friends first, then expand outward from there.
2016 is the year of the humanitarian, which is that rare breed of individual who has love and compassion for everyone. Think Mother Theresa and the Dali Lama as fine examples of the humanitarian. It’s normal to get angry and to feel hurt and resentment, but try to put yourself in their shoes and realize they’re human just like you. Us little humans make mistakes. Understand that, send out compassion, and move on.
2016 has very powerful energies associated with it that can help a person discover their true life or soul purpose. If you’re wondering what it is you are truly meant to do in your life, open yourself up to your angels and your spirit guides. Ask them for clues and signs and specify to them those clues and signs need to be obvious and easy for you to understand. Many angels and spirit guides can be very obtuse in how they deliver messages!
2016 will be THE year to focus on your own spiritual development. If there are spiritual topics in which you are interested, but know little about, 2016 is THE year to study up on them. Focus on strengthening your existing gifts and expand into exploring new or developing gifts. Buy some new books to expand your horizons, or take a course or two, or fifteen 🙂
2016 is the time to offer forgiveness. Look to your past. Any old hurts or emotional wounds can be healed during 2016 if you put the energies of understanding and compassion to good use.
2016 is the year of letting go of the past, and releasing. Focus on sending healing energy back in time to heal old hurts and emotional wounds. Don’t dwell on the past. The past only drags us down and no one ever accomplished anything useful by being overly focused on the past. It’s time to let go and look forward.
2016 should be a banner year for many of us as long as we focus on making the best use of the energies that are now available to us. Go out and make 2016 the BEST year EVER!
