MEMOIR LOGO CONCEPT: The aleph and a Sufi mystic inspired my creation and design of the syzygy logo, which I initially based on the symbolism of the yin and yang.

But the concept expanded when I first saw the aleph in Judith Cornell’s    
Mandala Healing Kit, My inexplicable attraction to it led me to incorporate it into my logo before I knew what it meant. 

I later read that the “Aleph (the first letter of the sacred Hebrew alphabet) embodies the primordial, divine potential of the universe. ... Aleph contains all the universe’s potential and all of its emptiness   simultaneously. Aleph represents a dynamic process of movement from unity to diversity and back to unity,” Jennifer Judelsohn, Songs of Creation.

And the  mystic poet Rumi inspired me to use the fire and water concept after I read The  Question.  Here is an excerpt:  

“The presence is there in front of me. A fire on the left, a lovely stream on the right.

One group walks toward the fire, into the fire. Another toward the sweet flowing water.

No one knows which are blessed and which are not.

Whoever walks into the fire appears suddenly in the stream. 

A head goes under water, and that head pokes out of the fire.”

LOTUS LOGO: In spiritual and religious literature, “the lotus is a symbol for the macrocosm and the microcosm, the universe and man. The lotus represents the divinity of the cosmos as well as the divinity of man. 

The lotus is the center of the infinite, omnipresent consciousness which connects with the consciousness of the universe. Through the intuition, one of man’s divine gifts, the spiritual student can see the infinite, omnipresent consciousness as the lotus flower within himself.”

Life Path 4

Date of Birth: 12/17/1955 = 1 + 2 + 1 + 7 + 1 + 9 + 5 + 5 
= 31 = 4 = Life Path 

“Don’t wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it.”—Anonymous

“The 4 needs lots of positive affirmation and is afraid of criticism. This can mean that when they have a great idea, it often lives and dies in their head because they are reluctant to act on it. They over-process, saying to themselves, “If I can’t do it perfectly, I don’t want to do it at all.” A lot of their dreams are never achieved as a result. The 4 vibration needs to remember to follow the old Nike slogan: Just do it.”
Glynis McCants
The Numbers Lady

The 4 Life Path is a very cerebral, intelligent number. The 4s are seekers of knowledge and born teachers. They often wear glasses, and I think of them as “human computers”— the fact that Bill Gates is a 4 Life Path is no surprise. They are into the logic of life—A plus B must equal C.

We learn from 4s. If I said it’s a beautiful day with a blue sky, a 4 might add, “Yeah, but do you see that black cloud?” The 4 is not trying to ruin my day; they just want me to see the situation from all sides. I call this the “Spock mentality.” They are always seeking truth. While they sometimes come off as cynical, what they are really trying to do is give you information that they think will help you. You’ve got to take them with good humor, because they really don’t mean you any harm. They are actually trying to make your life easier.

The 4 is the first to say, “I don’t want to argue”—and yet they always wind up in arguments! Why? I believe it’s because they are so honest and they are very direct. They don’t often cushion the blow.

The 4 can intuitively fix things and often don’t quite know how they do it. Children with this vibration can solve puzzles that would stymie most adults. I knew a 4 Life Path eight-year-old girl who figured out how to adjust the broken door on the family dryer with a safety pin, so it would run until the repairman got there. Young 4s seem wise beyond their years

All of us would do well to keep a to-do list, but it is absolutely essential for a 4. [I have so many lists I need a list of my lists.] Their minds are filled with so many different thoughts that unless they keep a list, it’s easy to let a couple of things slide by. Once the thoughts are put on paper, the 4s can set their minds at ease and avoid having too much going on in their very busy brains. 

Nature’s beauty has a calming effect on the 4. They often like to hike and camp; they tend to be very good at gardening and enjoy working in the backyard. Growing their own food, or making a beautiful garden with flowers they can be proud of, is a very healthy outlet, for the 4 likes to move slowly and deliberately. They don’t want to have anyone pushing them into a situation they don’t feel ready for. This Vibration likes to have a plan and they want their lives to be orderly. 

A word of caution for the 4: with a mind that’s always running at full speed, the temptation arises to drown your thoughts in alcohol. You have so much going on up there and just want to relax.

The 4 Vibration must find healthy, positive outlets to help free yourselves from your own overactive minds. Something I often suggest to my clients, especially the 4, is keeping a journal. [I journal everything: my health, my food, my dreams, my time, and the list goes on.] You can write your thoughts out and purge whatever is troubling you, rather than trying to drown it with an addiction. 

There’s a very grounded quality to the 4. The average 4 is not obsessed with being filthy rich; they just want to make sure they have enough for the future to feel secure. 

Honesty is crucial to the 4, especially in relationships. When 4s love, they are very sincere about it. If they discover they’ve been betrayed, they can lose their trust, making it very hard for them to love again. The other type of 4 will concentrate so much on their work and plans for the future, they won’t notice the relationship falling apart and will be shocked and devastated when it ends. 

In general, the 4 absorbs everything about their surroundings. They see everything, and because of the way they process information, they need their peace and quiet. They have this sensible, traditional, well-behaved way about them. They don’t like people who are overly flashy or gregarious. If someone is too loud or obnoxious, they will get offended. The 4 is very selective in their friendships, and they don’t need a lot of people in their lives. There is a loner quality to the 4, similar to that of the 7. 

It is not uncommon for a 4 to have panic attacks. They want the situation they’re in to be in absolutely perfect order. Scientists, however, tell us that the natural state of the universe is chaos! They need to embrace this fact and rest assured that things will sort themselves out in the end. Remembering this can make a 4 feel better immediately. 

A final thought on the 4 Life Path. The 4 does not like to look naïve in any situation. When they learn a skill, they are inclined to become expert at it—that’s why 4s make such amazing teachers. So if there’s a 4 out there working for someone else and thinking, boy, I could do this better than my boss, then I suggest you start teaching it to other people. You’ll make your own money, and finally find true fulfillment. ♀ ♂

Numbers, letters vibrate, each a unique energy  
As the first language—a universal language—numbers have been studied in cultures around the world since ancient times. Greek philosopher Pythagoras (c. 580–520 B.C.) believed that numbers are the essence of all life. He figured out a system whereby the numbers 1 through 9 corresponded to the letters of the alphabet. By studying these corresponding vibrations, he was able to describe a person’s personality traits based on their given name with great accuracy, so much so, that he changed his own name to experience aspects of numbers other than his own.

Numerology fascinated Carl Jung, as well, and he found great merit in Pythorgoras’s theories. Jung believed in the study of numerology as a means of studying human nature and personalities associated with the vibrations of numbers. He called Number the great mediator.   

Following below are passages I lifted from Glynis Has Your Number, in which “The Numbers Lady” provides readings with amazing accuracy. Glynis shows how numbers can be helpful in all aspects of our lives, from choosing a life partner to buying a house to naming our children. Her accuracy as it applies to my life is uncanny, and I have summed up about 20 of my friends based on her book, and they were all amazed at the accuracy as well. As an example reading, I have bolded what I consider her most surprising accuracies as applied to my life in red, with my comments in brackets. 
“The opposition between the human world and the higher world is not absolute; the two are only relatively incommensurable, for the bridge between them is not entirely lacking. Between them stands the great mediator, Number, whose reality is valid in both worlds.”
