What Valuable Lessons Could Number 4 Offer Us from A Feng Shui Perspective

By
Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

Our primitive MIND taps into FEAR based thoughts of what we DO NOT UNDERSTAND. It could be in regard to another person or another culture. I invite you to have an OPEN MIND with what I’m about to share in regard to how number 4 could provide valuable lessons. 

 

In the Cantonese language number 4 sounds similar to “death” and due to that, a stigma against 4 evolved. So when we see the number 4, does it mean we'll have “back luck” coming our way? That all depends on how you CHOOSE to PERCEIVE number 4. 

 

I CAN ONLY SHARE WHAT I HAVE OBSERVED AND FIRST HAND EXPERIENCED WITH THE NUMBER 4 THROUGH A PERSONAL SHORT STORY. 

 

On May 18th, 2010 I received a call from the Huntington physical rehab center in New York. The nurse shared my mother, Carole Provenzlae was not doing good and that I needed to get to the hospital they transferred her to ASAP! Mom had been sick for quite some time on and off. In past, she was able to fight and will her way to better health.Yet this time, it was different. 

 

As I was driving toward the hospital a car pulled in front of me and we stopped at the same red light. Their license plate read, “4444” in the number section. After seeing the numbers an immediate deep inner knowing of “life is about to change and you are fully supported” washed over me. I knew mom was ready to leave this earthly plane and it was a matter of my brother, Adam, and I arriving at the hospital within a timely fashion to be in her presence and give permission to her spirit to leave. After quickly checking in at front desk, the nurse brought me to my mother’s room and I was taken back from what I saw. It didn't look like her at all. The person I saw before me was just a shell of a body in process of being emptied out from all its life force. Her skin color was a pale green-blue and her eyes and face were so drawn, it resembled a surrealistic zombie. Once my brother arrived, we sat beside her and within a minute, she took her final breath. 

 

I share this very personal story because it brings us back to the Cantonese cultural perspective of the number 4 meaning “death.” I have to say, I look at number 4 as a sign of TRANSITION in the cycle of life. There is a beginning and a completion, yet from that same point of completion it continues again without skipping a beat.

 

Yes, on the surface “death” came knocking, yet on deeper levels so much more was also being gifted to us and to our mother the same time. The gift of wisdom, new found awareness and spiritual growth. To offer a more elaborate digestions of this perspective here is a break down of number 4 from varying teachings. In western numerology, number 4 means strength and support. For those who follow Angelic numerology, number 4 represents love, support, and inner-strength, enabling you to do what you need to do within that given moment and beyond. And that is what I felt and needed. Number 4 could also symbolize a life changing event and/or lesson is unfolding to expand your spiritual growth, which was also true for us.

 

Even with this article, take what you read with a grain of salt. If you do not understand something in life that is beyond your comfort zone, LEARN about it, become CURIOUS and ASK QUESTIONS. Conduct your own research and pay mind to your INDIVIDUAL personal interaction with what you are curious about. In this case, we are exploring another side to the energy vibration of number 4.

That is so incredible, Laura. I'm sure you did know the minute you saw that license plate. I do put a lot of stock into what you're saying. I believe it 100%.

O my goodness. I was born on 4th. 

I'd go with " In western numerology, number 4 means strength and support. For those who follow Angelic numerology, number 4 represents love, support, and inner-strength, enabling you to do what you need to do within that given moment and beyond. And that is what I felt and needed. Number 4 could also symbolize a life changing event and/or lesson is unfolding to expand your spiritual growth, which was also true for us."

Great post, thank you, Laura Cerrano.

Oh, I've heard this too, Laura and I know that many will absolutely not buy a home with the number '4' in the street address or if the numbers total 4 in some way. 

I know you miss your Mom - we do too. She was such a ray of sunshine here in the Rain. But, what a wonderful job you are doing, carrying on her positive legacy...not only here in the Rain but, in life too.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
