This year marks a couple '7's for me; 7th year teaching at one of my favorite dance studios- with a big energetic change, 7th wedding anniversary- with an apparent elevation of communication and partnering and many other I'm not consciously aware of, I'm sure. I will say the shift is uncanny. I've known for awhile that your body regenerates itself every seven years, one of the reasons why allergies can change as your body assimilates. But aside from the natural course of 7 there is also an opportunity to consciously ride the wave of transformation. I've seen many work to find a place of stability and containment. Only to see life is ever evolving and our inability or ability to shift with it either allows us to enjoy life cycles or feel beaten down by them. And usually a dance between both. Still this undeniable magic inspired me to look deeper into this "lucky" number we've heard so much about...
The origin of seven's power lies in the lunar cycle. The moon has four phases lasting about seven days. The Sumerians gave the week seven days. Life cycles on earth also have phases demarcated by seven, and there are seven years to each stage of human growth, seven colors to the rainbow, seven notes in the musical scale, seven seas, seven continents, seven petitions in the Lord's Prayer, seven bodily chakras and seven deadly sins. (Whaaaa?!)
SO, what do we do with all this information?
Start paying close attention to your sevens, there might be a new 1st around the corner ;)
