With the schools starting and the air getting crispier, September has always felt like a great time for a fresh start. But have you wondered why, spiritually, this is the case? The 99 Gateway that opens on Saturday, September 9, is a great example of how our lives can change in September.
The power of 9 in numerology
In Numerology, 9 is perhaps the most powerful number. As the last single digit, it represents the closing of a circle and the beginning of a new one; the exhale before our next, nourishing breath. The number 9 is also considered the pinnacle of completion and perfection, because all of its multiples contain it: 18, for instance, which is nine multiplied by two, becomes 1+8 = 9. Nicola Tesla believed that the numbers 3, 6 and 9 hid the secrets of the creation of the Universe! Regardless of whether you agree or not with the talented physicist, the number 9 holds a certain spiritual power — and the number 99 even more so.
So on the ninth day of the ninth month of the year, the timing is ideal for you to shed your old skin and let go of all the things and people in your life who no longer serve your highest good.
How to use the 99 Gateway to elevate your life
On Saturday, September 9, step into the next phase of your life by doing the following:
Step 1: Wash your hands with salt at dawn, or as early in the day as possible.
As the water runs through your hands, concentrate on all the things you’re letting go of, to make space for abundance in your life.
Step 2: Write 9 things (or relationships) you wish to let go of on a piece of paper.
Write them as they come to you, in present tense. Thank the Universe for bringing these things and people into your life, and acknowledge that they have served their purpose. You are ready to let them go.
Step 3: Burn that paper and blow the ashes in the wind.
Once the ashes disperse, this is your sign that a new phase in your life is ready to begin! You’ll feel lighter, and will be more likely to achieve your goals and find your new purpose.
