My answer to a reader who expresses what many people feel when finally taking the plunge and quitting their job. 


Dear Carol

I am a huge believer in the law of attraction and synchronicity; I have recently quit my job because it was absolutely eating at my soul.

In discussing life with so many different people over the years, I think my problem is more common than not.  I just quit "Corporate America" at a bank where 9 out of 10 hated their work but continued being miserable everyday.  The negative energy of the work itself and the environment was pulling me down with it.   I know so many people that are not living with their authentic selves out of fear of what they would do next.  I have taken a blind jump into the universal flow, and can definitely see the frightening aspects of it. 

Congratulate yourself for making a good decision.  Don't look back,
  I feel free and happy again, but broke.
Don't describe yourself as broke--not a good message for Law of Attraction to match.

I am 30 years old and feel very lost and want so badly to find my purpose and make a difference.
You make a difference everyday by the way you are with the people in your life and the people you meet in everyday transactions. I think it's better not to draw a line and make Life Purpose so weighty and all about a JOB or CAREER (as you know from my writing.)  Get a job for now so you don't feel scared or can't pay your bills.  Find something different and relaxing--heck, you could work in a 7 11 store for six months--until you feel drawn to make a more definitive choice (such as maybe going back to school.)
I have read your book about the purpose of life, and James Redfields whole series of books.  Is patience all I am lacking?
For an understanding of your nature, I think the Primary Life Chart will throw some light.

All the best--and don't forget to use the metaphysical wisdom you have learned--write down your ideal job (the conditions, kind of people, commute time, salary, what types of activities you enjoy and match your talents)  Your list is your intention.  Stay happy--and tell a good story to people, such as "I'm exploring new options."  "I'm looking around for a good fit for me." etc.

 Her response:

Thank you so much for responding. You have made very good points and I will use them.

I, like many others, have defined myself by my career.  I guess after putting so many years and money into schooling, the focus remains fixated on the goal of attaining that success I have been working towards.  I will focus on my fortune of a wonderful husband and an exciting next chapter to my life.

I read your March monthly article and found it fascinating.  I've been trying to research the significance of the #22 because of events that have happened within our family this past year.  Maybe you can help me understand.
My sister who was 32 had a gastric bypass and 3 exposed holes in her teeth so she tried to self medicate because the pain was so bad so she took a double shot of tequilla and went shopping.  Later that night:
11/22/05 she got into an accident which involved a guy doing a wheelie on a motorcycle who later died, we began to notice all the events of this tragedy involved #22.
my sister was born 2-24-73
the officer that arrested her, his badge # 54227
the vin number of the man's bike contained the #22
The man was 22
Died on the 22nd of Nov
Born on the 22nd
My sister's trial began on the 22nd
She was not found guilty of manslaughter but found guilty of dui with injury  and to be sentenced on the 22nd
We just found out after trying to appeal that her attorney's license to practice was revoked on 2/13/07 when added together=22
my sister is pregnant and was given the due date of the baby Sept-22nd
My sister has a daughter who's birthday adds up to 22
My grandmother who was her Godmother birthday 2-22
She's scared this is something evil, what would your opinion be?  We have other significance with this number in our family: "is there a way to change the path to be more positive! "
I appreciate your input and recommendations on your theory.
thank you

Dear Randi,



Thanks so much for writing to tell about the appearance of 22 in your sister's life.  The 22, as I understand it, is a master number which means the message is--how do I handle difficulty with integrity and responsibility?  How do I build the life I want and keep my vision strong, yet flexible?  How do I tap into conscious awareness so that I increase my ability to be compassionate to myself and others? 

The 22 is a master at showing us where are thoughts have been going up to now (not all consciously of course,) and bringing results into our life that match the energy of those thoughts and core beliefs.

By noticing the symbolizing, as your sister is doing now, her awareness is growing.  However, the teachings of the numbers are to help us live a positive life and make good choices at each step.

22 isn't evil, but it can present challenges that are part of that person's path of coming into more understanding (some people might say, "coming into the light" (of awareness and personal responsibility)  The trap would be to start fearing the 22, and giving energy to a superstitious, rather than spiritual, perspective. 

The evolved energy of 22 is called the master builder.  Twenty-two is a number reminding us to be a practical visionary--to listen to our intuition, and then take the obvious next step.  The unevolved side of 22 is to deny any responsibility for what happens to us, to feel like a victim of difficult life events, to blame others, to become hardened, cynical, or continue to see ourselves as hopeless. (Please understand, I am not saying any of this is true in this case, but it is the pitfall of seeing the challenges of 22 without realizing that this life--with its challenges-- is the perfect playing field for the life purpose to develop.)

I've worked with many people where the 22 figured prominently in their charts, and they often did have difficult early childhood experiences, or setbacks later in life.  However, the soul has various reasons for an incarnation, and the "master" part of master numbers (such as 11, 22, 33, --99) is to raise the bar on the area in question (for example, 4 tends to be cautious, careful, and persevering.  22/4 then asks you to be practical and persevering, but first imagine what you want to do, and then let synchronicities help draw that toward you. You still need to be perservering, and hold firm to your vision, but also realize that you cannot do what you need to do alone.  You have the guidance of inspiration and intuition--even guides who oversee your progress from the spiritual plane. 

Regarding your question of how to change the path to a positive one, it sounds like your sister has chosen to focus on the "evil" part of 22.  For example, I doubt that the baby born on 22, the daughter born on 22, or the God mother/grandmother born on 22 are part of any evil chain.  This list of synchronicities, in a spiritual sense, is neither good nor bad.  These events just "are."  They happened.

The 22 is an underlying pattern to help your sister and the family become more aware that life is not only lived on a material plane, but that we have a spiritual home as well.  To begin to fear everything and look for evil sets up law of attraction to continue sending difficulties.  Rather, it's more useful to see the 22 as the master teacher to pay attention and be rigorous in looking for the purpose behind the event.  To change energy, I suggest that she use some kind of meaningful affirmation each day to keep the focus on what she wants to attract into her life, not what she doesn't want to attract.  For example, "Today I want to meet good people."  Keep it simple and heartfelt.

November 20, 2006

CAROL'S NOTE:   Donna (not her real name) allowed me to post the edited email below giving me an update on her progress.  For a couple of years, she has been uncertain about whether to change careers, and/or move to another state (M).  When she visited M, things at first started to flow, then the flow seemed to stop.  In the midst of everything she and her husband decided to divorce.  Her finances looked shaky.  She was confused as to the right course-, but staying in the old house was no longer an option.  

Dear Carol,

Have been wanting to let you know how things are going. I finally returned to M after three long months in California. My home has not sold as of yet. And the place I am staying in M is for sale, too, and the owner gave me notice to move by the first of the year.  In addition I found a lump in my breast before I was to leave to come back here. I think 2006 will go down in history for me.

Doing my best to let the universe take me in the direction I need to go. I was offered a job in California on the very day I was to leave for M.   The [cosmetic] company I've been wanting to work for called!  I had gone to the mall with the intention of finding a job at one place, and ended up being offered a job on the spot! It was effortless as you say. This changed everything for me. Now I feel I could go back to M, pack and come home to California for the winter.

I saw your Blog...Emotional difference  between letting go and the resentful or regretful act of giving up. How timely is that thought for me!  During the three very trying months in California I was resentful and regretful about my marriage, my home and M...I felt like I was losing everything I had worked so hard for. How could my husband just throw it all away?

One thing I know is that I have gratitude for all the things that have come into my life since I went on this journey to M.  I began to appreciate  all the gifts I've received since I went on this venture.  I realize that my house in Cal is too big  and I want something else.

As  for my husband I have decided to move on. I realize I've been in limbo for a long time with the relationship.  Years..I'd say.  So with all this in mind and lots of tears I'm at a place where it's ok to let go. In fact I've never felt so much peace with decisions I've made in the last week of being in M. I guess if anyone asked me what happened here...I'd say I found myself in M!!! I am blessed to have had such a journey.   Who knows where I'll go next...I have thought about Washington State.

I want you to know while I was packing I came across my dream book for my store and there was a brochure for [the cosmetic company where she has just been offered the job] right on top...MMM I thought. It just confirms I'm on the right path.

I hope to see you when I get back.
Love D


Family, Purpose, Spark, and Future Finances 11/02/06

Hello Carol:

I am in a 9 year and am trying to let go of the old and begin anew. I am
very grateful for so many blessings in my life - a wonderful family, a
comfortable home, and life in a great community. I am struggling with "finding my


I have worked from home for 15 years.

My priority is that my family come first, but that I am also able to do work that makes me happy.

My business is stable, but doesn't provide the "spark" that it used to.

I also worry about my husband who has smoked for over 30 years.

How do I find my purpose?

How do I move forward and find career happiness when I have been unable to help my husband and sibling move forward?

How do you trust that where you are going is the right direction?

I appreciate your time and value your opinion.  PH

Dear PH,

As soon as I read your note, I had the strong feeling that the number 6 would figure prominently in your numerology chart, and so it does.  Here are a few of your major numbers

Day of Birth           3      (communicator and creative synthesizer)

Full Birth Path         6      (responsibility, concern for others, family, service, stability, working from home).  Sixes frequently feel guilty about something.  In your case you feel guilty for being happy when your sibling is struggling.

Sixes also tend to worry--in this case about your husband, his smoking and the possibility of having to be the major bread winner if he goes before you do.

Heart's Desire   6      Again, most sixes have home and family as priorities--and, characteristically, you chose to work out of the home as well.  Sixes love their home and their comforts!

Originally, you probably chose your business for its stability factor--but now you feel little or no spark.  However, when you made this choice, I am assuming  it felt logical and fit your nature.  One question to ponder for a few weeks is, what makes me feel sparked?  Write a list, and keep a journal of ideas.  Watch your dreams for messages.

Personality       6      Again, as a 6, you appear to others as highly stable, productive, caring and responsible.  However, as 6's get a little out of touch with fashion, maybe you need to update your look (I'm just guessing as 6's can sometimes become very maternal in appearance.)

Destiny             3      Here we see again a strong 3 like your DOB.  What are you doing now that is creative?  In looking at your disposition of numbers from your name, I see that you happen to have a perfectly balanced "head line" in your numbers-- which suggests that you may be able to write--anything from articles, something on the Internet, to a book?  You have an exceptional capacity, also as an organizer.  What have you organized?  Have you shared your tips and tricks with others?  Could you work with young women?

You are now 48 years old and entering a completly new phase in life--the 3 Pinnacle--which resonates perfectlyy with your 3 Destiny. In a very real sense, now is the time you've been waiting for all your life!  Your Destiny is to be a communicator, and put together ideas in creative (synthesis) ways.    You should be getting more youthful in personality and approach now, and that's why you are feeling around for that spark.   You already have fulfilled major portions of your purpose in life--all that family!!  Ask the Universe to give you the opportunity to interact with people in a social and lucrative way--to handle lots of tasks in a spontaneous manner, and to enjoy what you do.

As a six, an important lesson for you is to give up thinking you can fix, control, or improve anyone else.  You can, however, be a role model for vibrancy, living life to the fullest, taking new risks, exploring new interests, and being very very healthy yourself (instead of worrying about your husband.) 

In looking at your timing influences since July of  2003, I see that you have an 8 Essence until July of next year.  What does it mean?  An 8 Essence requires you to think bigger, get a firm, clear grip on your finances--which means go over everything with your husband so you understand exactly where you are and what you would have to handle should he be out of the picture.  Your concern about being a breadwinner in the future is most likely partly rooted in uncertainty--natural fears if you don't know what you currently have, owe, etc.  Reviewing all financial matters now, could change your attitude, or open up a new discussion--and even a new interest that could lead to more money.  The need to make money often creates a really creative environment which leads us to ignite that spark in our lives!

All the best, and keep in touch as things evolve.
