Personally, I’ve never had trouble sleeping, getting to sleep or staying asleep. I would have the occasional sleepless night, but for the most part, I was one of the lucky ones. Until now. This whole pandemic has thrown me for a loop and I’m sure I’m not alone. With that said, as each day goes on, I’m becoming more and more comfortable with all the changes that have taken place in my life. Today, I will tell you that I’ve never been happier. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but I have found my peace during all of this and I thank God several times a day.
About 2 weeks ago I had one of those nights. You know when you wake up and can’t get back to sleep? The clock read 2:22. I noticed the sequence but let it go. Again, last week, the same thing happened. I woke up and could not get back to sleep. Having recently been let go at my job of eight years, I was heading into the office to clean out my cubicle the next morning. I wasn’t sure how I felt about being let go, but I wasn’t sad to not ever have to go back there. Nonetheless, it’s not easy letting go of the #old to bring in the #new. Glancing at the clock, it read 2:22. I laughed. I said, okay, God, I think you’re sending me a message. As a Christian, I try to never look to a false god for guidance or reassurance and this was not my intention. I couldn’t sleep and my curiosity got the better of me. I thought it may be worth a look so there I was in the middle of the night choosing to look up the spiritual meaning for 222.
There is a lot of meaning to the number sequence #222. First and most importantly for me, it is about trusting things are always working out for you. Seeing 222 is about a new cycle of experiences that will help me to grow and expand. Simply put, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions and your actions will create your new reality. Don Miguel Ruiz of The Four Agreements says, “Your word is the gift that comes directly from God”. That’s all I needed to be reminded of to know I did the right thing when I looked this up. Everything we have comes from God so it brought me peace knowing this new path I’m on is the direction I should be following, at least for now. We don’t have anxiety if we are on the path to Christ and I intend to grow with #grace as I take my next steps to live in Christ.
Repetitively coming across 222 is also a reminder to pay attention to what is going on in the physical world around you. It’s going with the flow and trusting the process. Letting go and letting God is about freedom. Freedom to allow God to show you something better. It is allowing God to bring to us the resources we need to make things happen. It’s about learning to balance and harmonize our overall well-being, spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Isn’t this what we’re all trying to do right now? Aren’t we all trying to find balance and harmony as we cooperate with each other for a better world?
I’ve recently started a new blog and website, something I’ve been wanting to put into action for a long time but could never find the time. I’m working hard to gain more followers as I work on my #brand. This is new territory for me and I’m learning a lot about Instagram, Facebook, algorithms (what the heck??), and I started this months before being let go from my job. (Could that have been a #nudge from God?) It’s a whole new world, and I’m meeting so many people willing to help with advice and tips!!! While on this new journey, trusting in God that things are always working out for me is a surefire way to success. Choosing to research 222 is just another confirmation to embrace patience and faith. I guess my thoughts have become my words, my words are becoming my actions, and my actions are creating my new reality.
