Hans Decoz: Discovering Your Inner Mom
-- This is a reposting of Hans Decoz's Blog entry from May 10th, 2008 --
If you were to encounter an extraterrestrial being, it would be unlikely that the two of you would have any other form of communication other than the language of numbers. The shape of the numbers might not be useful, but if the two of you sat down with a pocketful of pebbles, you’d be able to demonstrate a certain amount of intelligence, and even share information. The point is that numbers are a universal means of understanding and communication. Numbers transcend the limits of our world.
On one hand, numbers are free of subjective realities, such as emotions and personal preferences. In their purest sense, numbers possess objectivity, which is why they are the language of science. They are the most reliable means of communicating abstract ideas and of quantifying physical realities.On the other hand, numbers can be used to reveal the “soul” of words. Words evolve with an underlying feeling for the objects they describe. Each word has specific definitions, as well as a connecting emotional and spiritual feeling. Numerology can be used to reveal that underlying feeling or spirit.
This quote from the book Numerology: Key To Your Inner Self, by yours truly, touches upon one of the great insights that form the foundation of numerology; the understanding that words, names, language, like any other form of expression, evolve in synchronicity with the people that use them. The feeling or subconscious sense we have of an object produces a word we can use to name that object. And as we evolve and our understanding changes, that word is tweaked and tweaked like everything else that is part of the evolutionary process, so that today, any word describing any object or event (or person or …….) perfectly expresses what it names.
In my aforementioned book, I devote a whole chapter to exploring the underlying feelings that gave birth to such common words as love and hate, dark and light, cat and dog, and others. When teaching numerology I advise students to use numerology to analyze words like roof, rain, money, power, brain, art, mind, and so forth, to improve their understanding of numerology.
So let’s look at the words “mother,” and “mom” to see what they can tell us about the feelings and underlying spirit that shaped them.The first vowel in both words is an “o” - the most loving and caring of all the letters in the alphabet and the only vowel with a value of 6. There could be no more fitting first vowel for these monikers. Like many other words that represent things that protect or feed or love us the “o” sound reflects a warm, embracing feeling (love, food, roof, home, house, and so forth, to name a few other examples).The first consonant in “mother” and “mom” is the most stable of all consonants as it stands with its weight evenly spread over three legs creating in affect two roofs. The letter “m” is protective, secure, reliable, down to earth, and solid as a rock. Exactly what we want to see in our moms.The sum of the numerical value of all the letters in “mother” comes to 7 – a spiritual number that represents wisdom, guidance, and knowledge, while the sum of the vowels “o” and “e” adds to 11 – a master number and the most sensitive and intuitive of all numbers. The word “mom” produces a 5 as the sum of all letters – adaptability, versatility, change, and so forth, and an 8 as the sum of the consonants – balance, power, authority. (Yes, mom!).
If you want to practice the fine art of delineation through numbers and letters, there is no better way than picking words from the dictionary to analyze. Once you have trained with words, your friends and family should be the next step. Go ahead, this Mother’s day, get your mom a numerology report from tarot.com and for yourself a copy of the Name Advisor software, an excellent tool to use in your training to become a numerologist. Okay, altogether now: “Yes, mom!”
(Wait for father’s day when we will take a look at “father” and “dad.” Any ideas as to why these words both have the letter “a” as the first vowel?). I look forward to your comments.
