11 & 333 Magick Numbers
The Importance of the Divine numbers 11 & 3
The number 11 has always been important in my life. I was born at 11:11, my life path number 11, the way I write my name is 11 (Tau Tia L Douglass = 11), the name of our Mystery School Order is 11 (Ordo Infinitus Orbis = 11). My conception date also comes to 11. The magick number is 11.
All numbers are special, there are only truly 9 numbers. 11 is the magick number though, which is why it isn't reduced when working out your life path number. During my life as well as 11, 3 has been important and as a child I would say it was my lucky number, it just seemed to fit and it is my birth month, seeing as I was born in March. As I got older I went from 3 to 33, then eventually 333. I even get 333 from my birth numbers like so: I was born at 11:11 and my birth number is 11. In binary 11=3 so my 3 11s become 333. And the life in numbers is here: Life in numbers.
Interestingly when 'Divine Feminine' is put into the Numegalogy program 11:11 appears, find out more here http://churchsmsj.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/1111.html
Of course we also must remember that 3 is the Divine trinity of the Aeons, being that of the Mother - 1st Aeon, Father - 2nd Aeon and Divine Child of balance and androgyny - 3rd Aeon, which we are currently moving towards.
The number 11 means, in the Tree of Life, the Sphere of Daath. In the Hebraic Language Daath means "knowledge" or "Abyss", being the Sephira located in the limit between the Superior Triad (Kether, Chokmah and Binah) and the Sephiroth located at the more manifested world. Daath is where takes place phenomenon usually known as the "Black Night of the Soul", when the adept stands at the mental state represented by the daemon Choronzon whose number is 333. Transpass this state of the mind is essential to reach the consecration of the Great Work. To reach Daath is necessary, first, to make contact with the Holy Guardian Angel, who conducts the adept and helps him to reach the Abyss safely.
This system used by Thelemites, does again seem to demonise the Divine Feminine, as all other patriarchal religions, as they claim Choronzon is an evil Angel of the Aybss who must be defeated, and the number they give this Daemon is 333 - The Divine Feminine completion number.
11 and 333 again, very important numbers to everyone, not just me. But they show up in my life and my own charts constantly. The 11:11 normally starts to appear for people when they are starting to make contact with their HGA, it is only after they start to recognise this that they move on to the Daath, and if they are very lucky they get through it and move on to Binah, Chokmah and Kether. The time between Chokman and Kether is VERY challenging too, sometimes more so than the abyss, it is the path of the fool.
The number 11 also has the symbolism of the union of the Microcosmos and the Macrocosmos, as the sum of the 5 and the 6, being the 5 related to the Pentagram and the 6 related to the Hexagram. So, 11 joins the meanings of both the correlations and means the All.
During ceremonies we knock a certain amount of times, or ring a bell, stamp our foot or staff on the ground. The most generally useful and adaptable battery is composed of 11 strokes. The principal reasons for this are as follows: "Firstly", 11 is the number of Magick in itself. It is therefore suitable to all types of operation. "Secondly", it is the sacred number par excellence of the new Aeon. "Thirdly", it expresses the great Work, in every one of its aspects. "Lastly", it is possible thereby to express all possible spheres of operation, whatever their nature. This is effected by making an equation between the number of the Sephira and the difference between that number and 11. For example, 2 Degree=9Square is the formula of the grade of initiation corresponding to Yesod. Yesod represents the instability of air, the sterility of the moon; but these qualities are balanced in it by the stability implied in its position as the Foundation, and by its function of generation. This complex is further equilibrated by identifying it with the number 2 of Chokmah, which possesses the airy quality, being the Word, and the lunar quality, being the reflection of the sun of Kether as Yesod is the sun of Tiphareth. It is the wisdom which is the foundation by being creation. This entire cycle of ideas is expressed in the double formula 2 Degree = 9Square, 9 Degree = 2Square; and any of these ideas may be selected and articulated by a suitable battery.
The 11th Tarot card is Justice, the Ruler of the Balance which is ruled by Libra. The 3rd Tarot card is The Empress, and this is the card that always show up to represent me in readings and it is a special card to me. The tree number of The Empress is 14, the day I was born on and it being the 3rd card, it is extra significant to me, my birthday being 14th March. The Empress is ruled by Venus and water. Pisces being my Sun sign, which is also water.
How to work out your own birth number
I have explained above how important the numbers 11 and 3 are in general, but I also went into details about how those numbers came up on my own path, so you can see examples how things start to fit together. Once you know what your numbers are, you can see how things fit together for you. It is exciting how things just seem to fit. The things in your life that you felt drawn to and never knew why? Maybe you can find some answers once you start looking.
Always start with day first, then month, then year.
Here is an example of how it is calculated.
If your birthday is 13th October 1977.
Year: 1+9=10 1+0=1 and 7+7=14 1+4=5 then 1+5=6
You always add the digits together all the way as you work it out.
You then have your birth number: 416
This number is important to your life, and once you open your eyes you will see how important it is.. Try searching for the number in Google, and finding out the Gematria associations with it. You might find this site useful http://www.gematrix.org
Another site that is useful is http://www.billheidrick.com/works/hgemat.htm
It will work out what words and ideas correspond with your birth number. Please realise that it can only show you what others have searched for themselves in the system. There might be some nonsense, but there might also be some gems.
For instance when my birth number is put in, which is 533, in the Jewish Gematria it comes out with Supreme Being, lol. Well you can't argue with that can you? People who are determined to misinterpret me and what I do are always accusing me of thinking I am a prophet or something, well all women are Goddesses, I am no different, but I am sure it will give them something else to have a go at me about ;) The simple Gematria comes out with - "Always Fight With All Your Might For What Is Right" and "All False Prophets Will Have To Answer For Their Sin" I do believe we shouldn't give up doing the right thing, and I also try my best to expose these gurus and religious leaders that think they are above others. So try putting yours in and see what you can find out.
Interestingly, Theolalite in Jewish Gematria Equals: 318 as does "Inner Light", which is what Theolalite means.
How to work out your life path number
For your life path number you simply add all the digits of birth number together.
So using our example from above of 416.
If your number is two digits you normally add those together too, but because this has worked out as 11, it stays as 11, as this is the magick number.
So if you numbers were: 516 then 5+1=6 6+6=12, 1+2=3
Your life path would be 3.
Now you can look up what you life path number means, or get a detailed reading from me.
