Today marks the first of August in the year 2018, in other words 8-1-18, thus I feel compelled to write about the new energy that’s being ushered in. If you are into numerology, which I am, you know all single numbers have a vibratory frequency and when paired with other numbers a synergy is created.
The Number 8118
At first glance many would associate the number 8 with the infinity symbol, and rightfully so. The number 8 is a sign of abundance, karma, resurrection, regeneration, the blending of the material 3rd dimension and the spiritual 5th dimension, and love. The number 11 is associated with balance, intuition, manifestation, and enlightenment. The number 11 is also a heightened vibration of the number 2. The number 8118 is symbolic of a cycle or phase ending, hence new beginnings. The number is also what would be considered a mirrored number, which show up as spiritual nudges to be reflective, introspective and mindful of our thoughts and actions. Mirrored numbers also significant to a specific type of spiritual connection, the twin flame union. 8118 is also another expression of the master number 99, 9 being the number of completion. All numbers are dense in meaning, so I do recommend conducting your own numerology research. 8118 indicates that ultimately going forward we can expect the manifestation of karma in many forms and an increase in the collective consciousness.
Karma: Debt and Payout
Karmic debt is basically energy that is owed spiritually because of something that was done by you or for you, the debt is paid back through life experiences; we accumulate, payoff or rid ourselves of debt daily. The more self-aware and attentive we become, the quicker we eliminate our debt. The payout begins at incarnation or birth.
Payout is simply “reaping what we have sown”, it is the experiences that come to extract the energy owed or to give us energy, whether it be light or shadow. Each pay-out holds the same energetic weight of your action that produced it or the grace you took advantage of. The intent behind previous actions play a part in determining the energetic weight or the impact of the karmic payout as well. Karma is not good or bad, it is a tool meant to show you something about yourself.
As the new age unfolds, karmic payouts will commence in abundance. It has been said that for most of us this means resolved karma from past lives, allowing us to catch up and right our wrongs in this one. Depending on our individual efforts and previous circumstances, some of us will be experiencing breakthroughs, while others will be experiencing introspection. Some ways breakthroughs may show up in the material 3rd dimension are: newfound stability, career advancement, long awaited opportunities, or dissolved relationships along the establishment of new ones, while spiritual breakthroughs may be the obtainment of deeply desired peace, healing, clarity, vision and direction. With the energy being so sensitive and new now is the time to make necessary shifts that you have been aware of but chose to procrastinate on. This may be tightening up with the organization of your business, attending networking events you usually pass on, seeking closure and accepting your role in a failed relationship, or commencing and committing to spiritual practices. Only you know what needs to be done. Doing so will put you on a path to ascension into the 5th Dimension (or awakened christ consciousness).
What’s love got to do with it?
Well, as I mentioned before, we start paying off our debts as soon as we descend into this 3D realm. Sometimes that means not having experienced a childhood we would have dreamt for ourselves, however twin flames usually choose to incarnate into traumatic conditions to gain understanding through first-hand-experience so they can better assist the masses in healing residual trauma. Other experiences means failed relationships, usually karmic, and occasionally soulmates.These relationships serve less as payback and more as learning experiences. The romantic of these relationships are unbalanced in love, and are therefore toxic or painful at some point. Often times both parties walk away from these type of relationships so blinded by self-victimization they are unable to realize opportunities for self-enhancement, causing a (false) lag in their ascension journey. In a spiritual relationship, unconditional love flows evenly and infinitely. This type of relationship would be a matured twin flame relationship. Though this is the relationship so widely advertised, it is a gift and is the most challenging to maintain as it requires the most effort and self-awareness. This type of relationship is spiritual and only achievable if both parties are individually progressive in christ consciousness or ascension. Karmic relationships, soulmates (which do not have to be romantic), and twin flames are very similar in nature therefore difficult to decipher. Here are a few videos I have come across that clears up some of the haziness of the topic:
According to the videos, while all relationships are tough in some aspect, the twin flame relationship will differ in these ways, but can vary depending on the level of self awareness of each twin, so not all points made will be true for every union (denoted by an asteric *):
They are one in spirit, which is not true for karmic and soulmate relationships and cannot be fabricated
Serves as a catalyst for an awakening within, almost as if you are reborn into a new state of awareness through your union
They are your mirror. They shed light on your skeletons.
They unknowingly mirror each other’s progression or regression
Induce the widest spectrum of emotions; the most intense of romances
Childlike energy when together
There will be even exchange of energy, both parties will invest energy and both will be emotionally available*
They won’t leave you*
The union encouraging of each other’s spiritual journey while together
Underlying feeling of peace and love when together
Both are supportive of the growth and healing needed to make the relationship work
Despite the differences that arise, you are sure it is real, but possibly in denial
They get on your nerves
The love is unconditional
A few other notable characteristics of a twin flame union is it happens unexpectedly and it happens during a shadowy season in your life. I, however, do not believe the union has to take place during a shadow season, though it makes sense. All journeys and unions differ, so there is no definite indication that someone is your twin flame rather than just inwardly knowing. It is not recommended to harp over whether someone is your twin flame or not because regardless a lifetime together is not guaranteed off that alone. The only way any relationship will last is through effort. Twin flame relationships are energetically demanding and very emotional. One twin usually flees the relationship, while the other is self-assured of it’s potential. It is very important to conduct your own research on twin flames because they are classified by many other attributes, otherwise do no ignorantly label anyone your twin flame.
The twin-flame union is relevant to this subject at hand, 8118, because it is a path of enlightenment. The twin flame union is the unification of the two halves of one powerful 5th dimensional spirit in the 3rd dimension by way of physical contact (meeting). The 5th dimension must be reached to ascend further and love is the gateway (refer back to my post on christ consciousness). No one can ascend without mastering love. To understand this concept you have to understand that love is the highest vibratory frequency known to humans, opposite of fear. This is why it is said that all other emotions derive from the two. Through love we are able to heal, forgive, embrace, act in our best interest, and so much more. Love is the catalyst for everything great and progressive in life. The twin flame union is the most challenging because it is the ultimate battle between our spirit (love) and ego (fear). Karma and mishaps come to test again, to show you where you are in your journey, almost like a progress report in grade school. In a twin flame relationship you are forced to meet your true self, low vibratory behavior and all, whereas you were able to assume the victim role elsewhere. The whole process is very upsetting to the ego which does not like to be accountable, but because of its unmatched euphoria and divine possibilities, the twin flame relationship is usually seen as a love worth fighting for. The union does not have to be romantically involved, but usually choose to be because the energy is unmatched elsewhere. This union when worked at, is exemplary of christ consciousness and perfect balance (the mastery of integration). The new levels of awareness reached by twin lovers will spill into everything surrounding the union, including each twin’s own relationship with humanity. The new age will introduce more of these unions because successful unions serve the collective consciousness and heightened planetary vibration.
Things to remember
It's a new day, however, as always, your direction is determined by you. You can be forward looking or stuck in the past, and as the saying goes: “to gain something you never had, you have to do something you never did”. But before you make any sudden moves in this new age, reflect inwardly. Try viewing all experiences from a perspective that make you accountable. These type of reflective exercises empower you and reveal opportunities for self-improvement. We ultimately decide who we want to be and how we want to navigate in this lifetime, though trauma makes us feel otherwise. Reclaim your power. Such actions will put you on a path to ascension. Also, be open to love, but do not seek it. Loving yourself first will allow romantic love to manifest naturally. If you happen to manifest a twin flame, brace yourself for the journey and don’t become so consumed with the union that you neglect yourself. And when things get rocky, remember: there is a definite line between pride and dignity. Space is usually needed for personal growth to place. Naturally things will change, time will be spent a part in the early stages, but the love will remain if it is truly your twin flame.
This post will continue to be updated as I learn more about twin flames.
