Awareness of Seven Mandala – © Sue O’Kieffe 2009

Seven is a number steeped in ancient mysticism, pagan tradition, and alchemical processes.  In numerology seven is an “intelligent seeker of knowledge” and corresponds to the mutable signs (Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius) of the zodiac.  Seven energy is introspective and meditative. I asked my guidance more questions regarding their suggestion that I use the seven rayed configuration. I asked if seven was the most appropriate number for all of my art, and they said no.

Hmm. How do I feel about following this advise? Well, I know I have a choice. I don’t feel like I have given up any control. I look at the process as more of a collaborative effort.

I enjoy all this intellectual investigation. I am curious and aware that  a much larger mystery is involved that right now I am not able to comprehend.

This is just all part of my apprenticeship.


Update 7/29/09: I found this possibly related post that wordpress selected to go with my post. There is a whole bunch of information there on the number seven. Serendipity!

The past few times I have started to create a new mandala, I’ve  picked up my pendulum for guidance. I’ve asked how many rays I should use for the next mandala. Everytime I’ve asked I have received the same reply.


Today I asked, is there a reason you are guiding me to seven? (I know. Duh, right?) And then I asked, Do you want me to learn more about the number seven?

So this will be my journey for a while.

I have been fascinated with numerology since I was in grade school. My mother was a seeker and I was her apprentice. She read an article about numerology in some woman’s magazine way back then, and we both were fascinated. Now that I am older, I am an apprentice once again. I am more conscious these days. I am waking up to who I am, and I rejoice that I am not alone. The Age of Aquarius has even arrived, on Valentine’s Day this year.

When I finished the beginning stages of this mandala, I gasped and could feel my heart opening. I also grounded and claimed seniority. This mandala looks juicy and fresh. I also see the beings which appear in most of my work. I can rationalize that as being part of the joy of working in symmetry, but I know there is more.

I love this part of my life, full of newness.

I started this blog because I wanted to write about my experiences separate from the other places where I write. They are, of course, all entwined. Whatever needs to come out of this place will be made known over time.

Who wants to join me in the journey?
