Words, wandering rivers like ribbon waiting to tether to someone who will listen. Stories to teach lessons, to inspire and give direction.

The number 3 symbolizes my life path number which is the determined by your date of birth. The number 3 centres around being gifted in expression. The number 7 is my destiny number, which is determined by your full name and is focused on investigation.


I had no idea of the significance of these numbers until I started to look into why I would see these specific digits, 3 and 7 so frequently while compiling this book. I would always see 3:33 pm along with 7:00 at dawn and dusk. Not just time but items, such as 7 things would lye in front of me, or 3 thunderous bangs during a storm that I would take notice to. All of these little nuoniones occurred during the times that I would work on this book. It wasn't until I did some research that I learned these to be personal numbers.


I took it as a sign.


Thank you so much for taking an interest in my book!
