Coincidences are wonderful, aren’t they? Almost Magical?
I don’t know about magic, but what I do know is that when I opened a blank document to write about the significance of the number 9 for YogaTrippie, it opened as Document #9. I wonder if I should be surprised?
The Magic of the Number 9
Mythology and traditions from all over the world, both ancient and modern are replete with symbolism of the number nine. These range from stories of the norse God Odin who ruled the 9 worlds and hung for 9 days on the Yggdrasil tree to 9-day fertility feasts held every 9 years in Scandinavia. The city of Troy in Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey was besieged for 9 years, while Odysseus wandered for 9 more years trying to return home. The Greek goddess, Demeter, was depicted with 9 ears of wheat and searched 9 days for her daughter Persephone. The birth of Apollo and Artemis by Leto took 9 days and nights.
In Hinduism the number 9 is revered and considered a complete, perfected and divine number because it represents the end of a cycle in the decimal system. It is also the number of Brahma-the Creator. Tantric practices hold the number 9 in a very high value. Aztec, Mayan, and Native American myths describe 9 cosmic levels (four above, earth, and four below). In Christian symbolism, there are 9 orders of angelic choirs in 9 circles of heaven and 9 orders of devils within 9 rings of hell -- possibly accounting for the fact that it took 9 days for Lucifer and his angels to fall from heaven. And speaking of fallen angels, there are 9 justices of the United States Supreme Court!
Is it coincidence? Or does this number actually have a deeper meaning?
To top this all, a cat has 9 lives and the proverb a stitch in time saves nine is found to be true nine out of ten times.
It’s true. Procrastination never works.
So without further ado we shall dive into the significance of this symbolic number for us at YogaTrippie
as well as for you! The number 9
represents a time of clearing out the old so the new can emerge. It carries the energy of every number that comes before it, as it is the last single digit. Therefore, it is an accumulation of beginnings, middles and endings. It is a number that encompasses everything, but it is also the final number, so its energy signifies conclusions, endings and closure, but it also is readying us for exciting new beginnings. Therefore, we have the rare opportunity to clear and let go of any negative energy that we have accumulated over the past nine years to be the creators our our reality.
