2012 is just a few short weeks away.
If you haven’t heard about the evolutional-world-ending-neo-hippy-woo-woo-conspiracy theories on 2012… just type it into Google and lose yourself, or you can cheat and just click here to read a great article USA Today published.
In part, Journalist Lawrence Joseph is quoted in the article to say, “Part of the 2012 mystique stems from the stars. On the winter solstice in 2012, the sun will be aligned with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years. This means that “whatever energy typically streams to Earth from the center of the Milky Way will indeed be disrupted on 12/21/12 at 11:11 p.m. Universal Time,” In short, 2012 seems to be a big deal.
The most significant about this whole 2012 debate (in my little world) is, I turn 33 years old just 2 short weeks into 2012.
33 is a Master Number (according to numerology). “It is the most influential of all numbers. It is the Master Teacher. The 33 combines the Master Numbers 11 and the 22 and brings their potential to another level. When expressed to the fullest, the 33 lacks all personal ambition, and instead focuses its considerable abilities toward the spiritual uplifting of mankind. What makes the 33 especially impressive, is the high level of sincere devotion. This is shown in its determination to seek understanding and wisdom before preaching to others. The 33 in full force is extremely rare. 33 is the Master Teacher. This individual’s focus is on reaching the world and uplifting the loving energy of mankind. They are not concerned with personal ambition, and have great devotion to cause.”
So to prepare for this ‘sacrifice of self and great devotion of the cause’, to celebrate a Master birthday on a apocalyptic year, and to forever document the transformations in my life that got me to this point, I am getting Tattooed. Not a dolphin-on-the-ankle variety, but an intense design I have been working on for well over 3 years. It incorporates the elements of earth, water, air and fire. It embodies death, transformation and rebirth. It will be an initiation done in ceremonial fashion and it is a living tribute to … well… living. In essence, it will be an artistic masterpiece. I have already completed the first stage, the second stage is scheduled, and the third and final piece (for my 33rd birthday) needs your help.
(Are you catching the theme of 3’s here?).
What can you do? Please chip in! Consider it an early birthday present. Consider it a donation to the luck of a Master number, or just do it because it feels good. BUT, there is one catch. A caveat perhaps. Please donate with the number 3. $.03, $.33, $3, $33 or $333. Keep the energy alive and pass it forward as we enter into 2012.
I created a chip-in account to help keep track.
As soon as I get the three pieces done, I will be sure to post pictures.
p.s. A special Shout-out to Miss Endi Clark for her inspiration to not only go public with this observation of turning 33 in 2012, but also for her encouragement to set up a Chip-in account and get others involved! Thank you!
Update: I just got the design back from Nina (who is doing all my work) and I have to say – WOW! I can’t wait for it to be on my body.
