Wow, I can't believe that 2014 is actually here. I've been really looking forward to it. This is not because 2103 has been awful, though I do know people who would think that, but because I am interested in numerology, which is the mystical study of numbers and the unique properties ascribed to them. The digits of 2014 add up to 7, which makes it very special.
Seven is a magical number in folklore and mysticism. Seven is undeniably a lucky number with great influence; associated with psychic and mystical powers, secrecy and the search for inner truth.
The authority attributed to the number seven, dates back to the ancient civilisations who co-ordinated their lives with the lunar cycle, which comprises four phases each lasting just over seven days. This is likely to explain why we have seven named days in our week (each ruled by a planet). On a separate note, this brings me to the observation that we have a close affiliation with the ruling planet connected with the day we were born in addition to the ruling planet for our element (earth, air, water, fire) as well as the zodiac. The realisation that performing celestial attunements on someone to match his/her personal profile (based on a birth chart or wedding date for example) led me to develop a new series of bespoke empowerment attunements detailed in the dedicated section below or via this special offer link.
The number seven appears frequently in our society: there are seven years to each stage of human growth, seven colours of the rainbow, seven notes in the musical scale, we have grouped our environmental miracles into The Seven Wonders of the World and there are even seven petitions in the Lord's Prayer and seven deadly sins.
The seventh child of a seventh child of a seventh child is said to be born with psychic ability. Mrs Heaney, our art teacher at school was said to have this ancestral heritage and I must say, that those of us unskilled at fine art certainly used this old adage to our advantage - whenever we were bored with the task at hand we would insist that she regaled us with proof that she was indeed psychically gifted. Long before the flurry of interest brought about by Harry Potter, we pupils had a fascination with ghosts and spirits and since my grammar school was founded in 1725, there were plenty of rumours to whet our appetite.
Anyway, back to my theme! To summarise, the number seven is widely held to be a lucky number, especially in matters of love and money, and is associated with Magic and Mystery,
Anyone familiar with my sister Angela McGerr's angelology books or who has studied my Violet Flame of Amenti course will know that Melchisadec is associated with the number Seven. He is the Patriarch of the Seven Planetary Angels and ruler of the Violet Ray. He represents peace and wholeness through spiritual transformation. In Atlantis he was said to rule the Temple of Spirit, which represented healing and alchemy. The Temple housed a violet flame, featuring all shades of violet; a spiritual antiseptic, which transmutes negativity. It should be a great year for those who feel close to the Melchisadec energies.
Together with Joylina Goodings, we've already booked private access to Stonehenge for an hour from 6.15 on 7th July, so we will be inside the stone circle for 7am on the 7th day of the 7th month of this year that adds up to 7, making it a 7:7:7 in numerology. Then we'll go on to Avebury for other energetic hotspots and our meditational walk along the Michael Leyline. Get ready for the magic ...
As the theme for this issue is magic, I couldn't resist including this link to some amazing footage of David Copperfield seemingly 'flying'. Whether it is a brilliant illusion or whether he has genuinely perfected an art which may be available to all of us who believe it is possible, it's certainly magic!! I'd recommend watching it for pure entertainment.

Undeniably David Copperfield is an accomplished stage performer.
David Blaine is an amazing Street Magician, so it would appear much more difficult to set up illusions requiring elaborate sets as he works outdoors in urban areas. Many of his most famous feats have taken place in highly populated areas such as central New York. These include 3 days inside a transparent tank of ice with no food or water, 7 days under water (in a tank where he was fed air and food via a tube) and an unbelievable stunt called 'Vertigo' involving 33 hours standing on top of a 100 foot column which was only 22 inches wide. He was not harnessed to the column in any way and at the end of the endurance session he jumped down onto a pile of cardboard boxes. For another feat he was suspended under Tower Bridge over the Thames in Central London in a Perspex box for 44 days with no food and only water to drink! Whilst he has a penchant for the spectacular Houdini style stunts, he is also an extremely talented magician.
There are some amazing You Tube links freaturing David Blaine, I'd recommend the following depending on your time availability:-
(focused on audience reaction but includes some unbelievable footage)
(a really good overview of some of his best magical moments)
The guy he picked for this trick is totally astounded, as are his friends

Chinese New Year of the Horse
From 31st January we will move into the Chinese New Year, progressing from the year of the Black (Water) Snake to the Year of the Green (Wooden) Horse. Below is a summary drawn from these two Chinese websites:Chinese Fortune Calendar and Go To Horoscope
Horses are intelligent, competitive and sociable, giving people a ride to destinations, so are associated with travel, ambition and swift success. Horses pursue freedom, passion and independence. They can be noble but also proud.
2014 will bring success and abundance for those who are hard-working and focussed, plus reward for honesty, integrity and humility. Those who behave without morals may see karmic retribution! It is a year to be sociable, especially with friends and relatives, and also close to nature with frequent access to, and appreciation for, the outdoors. The Year of the Horse is said to be a good year to look smart and elegant; high heels and cascading hair will be lucky apparently (what about the men??).
Interestingly the lucky element for a horse year is Fire and the lucky numbers are 3, 5 and 7. Perhaps it is especially auspicious since this is a 7 year.
The New Moon on 30th January - preceding the start of the Chinese New Year of the Horse - is an ideal day for the new Personal Celestial Profile Attunements.
I'd also recommend this Alabe Website link for a very succinct review of the Chinese expectations from the year to come, I found this after I'd compiled the above, but thought it excellent.
Also, a book called 'Up to Me' by Mary Ancillette has been recommended. Its a unique approach to self-development; aiming to renew confidence, improve relationships and provide profound insights into how to achieve your full potential. There are some excellent reviews on Amazon. It sounds like an apt way to start 2104, I've got a copy myself so I'll let you know ...
Happy New Year
