The three numbers of enlightenment
Master numerologist Hans Decoz is the force behind the Pattern Project. Decoz says that numerology provides insight into all the aspects of your personality and reveals why you approach and deal with specific circumstances the way you do. It also gives you the tools to change any patterns you don’t like. He believes that people are not victims of randomness and have the power to create positive patterns and change negative events. According to him, every number is significant, yet there are three numbers to pay extra-special attention to: 11, 22 and 33—the “Master numbers”.
Decoz writes: Those who master these Master numbers in their charts can make them work powerfully and productively for them.
Master number 11: It represents instinct and intuition—connection to the subconscious and knowledge without rationality. 11 also has all the qualities of 2 (1 + 1 = 2), the negative points of 11—anxiety; hence shyness and stress are neutered by 2’s qualities of charisma and inspiration. 11 is the dichotomy number, one that conflicts and is a catalyst.
The holders of number 11 need to focus on specific, concrete goal or else anxiety and fear will take them over. With it, greatness is achievable; but can sabotage you if not used according to its nature. 11 is a number of faith, and associated with psychics, clairvoyants and prophets.
Master number 22: It is the most powerful of all three and is called the ‘Master Builder’. It is a pragmatic number, a doer, capable of turning dreams into reality. Those who have 22 in their Numerology chart have great potential for success—the number 11’s intuition joins the grounded and scientific approach of number 4 (2 + 2 = 4). 22 merges ambition with discipline. 22 is the number that represents actualisation of lofty goals into tangible results. A thinker of the big picture that combines great confidence and leadership qualities is 22. But note, everyone with 22 in their chart is not necessarily practical: the genius who never achieves “full potential” is a common example. 11 and 22 can achieve greatness, but sometimes are nervous about seizing the moment or are under self-applied pressure.
Those with 22 in their charts need to realise the limitless opportunities ahead in serene contemplation.
Master number 33: This number is the ‘Master Teacher’. 11 and 22 come together in this Master number, taking intuition and dreams to another, higher plane. If 33 isn’t used to its full potential, personal agendas are superseded by philanthropy and altruism. 33 is about understanding the subject before communicating it. Knowledgeability combines with practicality: they can’t be fooled easily because they check out the facts before committing to exploring or propagating an idea.
But rarely does 33 shine in full glory. This happens only if it’s one of the core numbers of the numerology chart: Life Path, Heart’s Desire, Personal Expression, Personality or Maturity numbers. Otherwise, numerology experts take 33 as 6 (33/6, that downgrades it to a weak number from a Master number).
Master numerologists pay special attention to Master numbers. After all 11, 22 and 33 create a triangle of enlightenment.
