“Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Shakespeare in Hamlet.
In response to a fan request from my facebook page The Numbers Queen here is a post on the numerology meaning of 666, also known as The Number of The Beast. Now, here is a number with a reputation. You can almost smell the fire and brimstone as you type it. If it were a person, it would surely have tattoos and a leather jacket.
Honestly, I half expected the screen to explode when I sat down to write this article. First up, let’s get one thing straight. The Devil, and Hell for that matter, only exist in your head.
Hell is not a physical place, and you’re not going there because you lied on your maths exam, lost your temper or swore in public. There is nothing you can do to stop the Universe from supporting you. To prove this just walk out into the sun – notice how everyone receives the light, no matter what their ‘sins’?
Sure, there are higher and lower vibration actions you can take, which will keep you on, or distract you from, your lifepath. But you won’t get roasted over coals when you pass over.
You’ll just be asked to explain yourself, and may receive coaching by your Guardian Angels. This could delay your return to a human body, but you won’t actually be harmed. Read Michael Newton’s book Journey of Souls for more insights. This is the book that made me believe in life after death.
Physically speaking, everything in this Universe is made of carbon. Spiritually speaking, all things are made of love. People who accept this reality have no fear of death, evil or violence because they know they are eternal beings. You are not your thoughts, or feelings. You are a soul visiting Earth on a working holiday. At the end of your trip, you will return to where you came from, to plan the next adventure, so to speak.
Here are the major associations for the number 666Common theories:-666 is a curse because it represents man’s fall from grace. King Solomon is associated with 666 and it’s considered a symbol of greed (read more here).
-Writers associate 666 with the aggressive Roman Emperor Nero Caesar, as well as Babylon and idol worship (read here). All the things Christians hated!
-According to the Bible, God created man and beasts on the 6th day. Jesus died on the 6th day (a Friday). So 6 represents grief. It’s also a failure, because it’s less than 7, the number of perfection (e.g. 7 days of the week).
-Confusingly, other parts of the Bible say that 666 is the number of Jesus! More on that below (see my explanation).The hidden, but possibly more accurate theories:
-666 is the number of the Goddess (Ishtar, Isis, Aphrodite) and is sacred in Egyptian mythology. It’s related to sex and motherhood, see this site. I wrote an article about how 13 is a Moon Goddess number, because it represents the number of Lunar months in a year. It’s amazing how bad press can make sacred numbers so dirty.
-666 is a positive, holy number in Kabbalah, and the sum of its Magic Square. It represents the Sun and the Heart chakra.
-Like all triples, or 11:11 clock signals, 666 is an Angel Number. Doreen Virtue sees it as a sign that your thoughts are too much on the material world., Read more.
-Researchers point out that the mark of the beast is 616, not 666 in the original Greek texts. So it could be a big typo that got copied over and over again.
-The occultist Aleister Crowley, who introduced astrology to the modern world, called himself “The Beast 666”, as a joke to annoy religious people. It was what his mother called him when he was young because he was so rebellious.
Finally here’s what I think 666 means in numerology, based on my work as a psychic reader…
6 is the number of Comfort, Love and Beauty.It represents the Third Eye Chakra (Sixth Sense), and being able to see beyond death into other dimensions. It’s the number for astral travel, clairvoyant visions and environmentalism. It’s about trusting life.
It’s also got strong associations with Venus, women and fertility (see how it has a belly/ baby in the drawing). People with 6 lifepaths or many 6’s in their names and soul contracts love children, nature, animals and helping others. It’s easy for them to become visionaries (think of John Lennon). Taken to the extreme, they tend to become rigid and critical, especially of their bodies. They forget that you can be right, or happy, but never both things at once.
For me, 666 is a message to look at the big picture and not get caught up in judgements. When you can ‘see’ that my idea of heaven could be your idea of hell, and vice versa, you have understood the meaning of life.
6+6+6 = 18/9, the vibration of LOVE (3+6+4+5 = 18/9), so 666 is definitely about seeing the silver lining in any situation. Read more on Love numerology.
JESUS = 1+5+1+3+1 = 11 in Numerology, a Master Number signifying Illumination. BEAST – 2+5+1+1+2 = 11 in Numerology, the same as JESUS. Perhaps 666 is the number of Jesus and The Beast, because they are all made of cosmic energy?
After all, the brighter the light, the darker the shadow. We are both heroes and villains at different times in our lives. There is no right or wrong, only thoughts that give you energy and others that drain you.
How can you improve your Third Eye Chakra? By gazing at the stars, wearing indigo or purple, eating dark berries (preferably organic), listening to classical music, meditating and drinking fresh water with no fluoride (see my article on water and intuition). You also heal it by saying NO to unnecessary demands on your time, as this is a YES to your own sanity and evolution.
So there’s nothing to be afraid of, after all. 666 is simply a reminder that we see what we look for. If you want a life of good and evil, where you have to work constantly to be loved, that’s fine, but also stressful.
If you want a life of growth, then consider that everyone you meet is either giving or asking you for love. No one intentionally hurts you, they just don’t know any better. To build compassion, see a sign above their head that says ‘Make Me Feel Special’. This is a profound way to keep your heart, and your Third Eye open.
