### The Number 8 and 8-08-2008

By Cynthia Tierra

August 8, 2008 could be just like any other day, or maybe it won't be. 8/8/2008 has the potential to be a very powerful day for change on an individual and on a dimensional level. I don't profess to be an expert in numerology, but from an intuitive perspective, all those 8's are very powerful.
Numerologists often reduce a number by a process known as digit summing, to produce a single number. Digit summing takes the sum of all of the digits in a number, and repeats the process until a single-digit answer is produced.

With 8/8/2008, the final number is 8. When using digit summing for 8/8/2008, you start with and end with 8. 8 plus 8=16, 16 plus 2=18, 18 plus 8=26, 2 plus 6=8. The number 8 is very interesting symbolically. An Australian numerologist suggests the number of Jesus is 888 when using the Greek Ionic Ciphered Numeral System. If each letter of the Greek alphabet is assigned a numerical value and the name of Jesus is spelled using the Greek alphabet, the final product is 888. The values of each Greek letter are: 10; 8; 200; 70; 400; and 200. The sum of 10 + 8 + 200 + 70 + 400 + 200 is 888. 8 can symbolize the unfoldment of time into space. The number 8 is also associated with infinity and cosmic consciousness. In the runes, the symbol that looks like an 8 is called breakthrough. Breakthrough is about finally shifting in a momentous way after going around and around without resolution. Once breakthrough has happened, your life will never be the same. 8 is about completion.

Is something coming to completion and a new cycle beginning? The messages in all the 8's are of spirituality and change. On 8/08/2008 at 8a.m. and 8p.m. visualize the number 8. Work with the spiritual energy of 8. Draw it in the air. Bring it into your heart chakra. Focus on what needs to change in your life. What is in need of completion? Ask for the changes to happen in your life in a peaceful, harmonious way. Agree to do your part to create the changes that are necessary for growth in your life. Focus on change on a dimensional level. Ask for the changes to happen in a peaceful, harmonious way; agree to do your part to create the changes that are necessary for growth on a dimensional level. Be at peace. Meditate and feel your connection to the energy and power of 8.
