33 is my Valentine

I apologize for the long break between my last post and this one.  I know I said I would try really hard to post every week, however, I have been crazy busy these last few weeks!

Although there has been a long break between posts, the number 33 has not taken a break in my life.  I still see the number many times a day. One of the encounters was on a price tag for Valentine’s Day heart candies (pictured). Two packs of these candies were purchased for my little nephews and I didn’t look at the price tags on them until I got home.

Additionally, another price tag that happened to be 33 was observed at Wal-Mart, in the produce section. Their oranges happened to be 33 cents.

These are the only two pictures I have for this post. I apologize that they aren’t the best photos to share. I will try to make more of an effort to get pictures of some of my more exciting encounters with 33.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

A 33 Here and There

I have decided to update this blog once a week…most likely on Thursday or Friday of each week!

In this post I would like to share two recent encounters with the number 33. First off is the check I received for graphic design work I recently completed. The check number was 3228833. This is the 3rd time in the last 3 months that I have received a check which number ended in 33!

My other encounter took place while I was leaving feedback for an buyer on eBay. This buyer had purchased an item several weeks ago and I still had yet to leave feedback for her. This buyer emailed me and requested that I leave her positive feedback for the transaction. The date and time I received the email was Sat, Jan 8, 2011 at 11:33 PM. I logged into eBay and navigated to her feedback page to leave her feedback. On her feedback page her seller feedback was visible and under each criteria her number of ratings were 33.

The abundance of 33’s in this eBay encounter made it obvious there was more to it than just a coincidence.

How very strange!

A Biblical 33

First  off, I am not a religious person. I consider myself spiritual, in the sense that I believe there is an order and a purpose for things that occur. I believe everyone has a spirit (soul) and each one of us on this planet are having a “human” experience. I believe most of what the Bible has to say is true. Insofar as the people telling the stories believed what they were experiencing was so important that they felt they need to document it. With that said, I don’t think we are even a little bit close to understanding the true meaning of the stories in the Bible. We are attempting to understand them with the knowledge we are limited to today. Just as the people telling the stories in the Bible were limited by the knowledge they had at the time.  Many people would disagree with my opinion and I respect that.

Now that I have my beliefs somewhat laid out, I should also say that I believe in synchronicity and spiritual guidance (which both may be one in the same for all I know). Because of this belief, I have started to consider that my experience with number 33 may be a way to guide me in a certain direction in my life or at least a way to direct my attention at something I should be paying attention to.

Yesterday, while I was on the internet, I logged into my personal Twitter account and was browsing tweets from people I am following on there. While browsing I came across a tweet from someone that posted:

Jeremiah 33.3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.

While reading the words of this Bible verse I felt a strong connection to them, as if there was a whole chain of events that were put into place so that I would read these specific words at that very moment. To make it even more interesting, I immediately looked at the clock and the time just happened to be 12:33 pm. It seems completely unbelievable, I’m sure, but please believe me when I say it is 100% true.

I don’t fully (or even partially) understand the meaning of this “33” encounter, but I do know that  I have a very hard time believing this one is just a coincidence!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope everyone had a splendid holiday season! I did! However, I am glad for the holidays to be over. I’m ready for spring and warm weather to arrive!

I’ve seen the number 33 many, many times over the holidays. More smaller encounters than larger, odd sightings though. The picture shown in this post was taken at Wal-Mart when I stopped to pick up a few things. There are bunches of these price signs at Wal-Mart all over the store but I rarely see numbers like 33. They are usually numbers like $10 (pictured in the background), $25, and $35 , etc. So I found this 33 a little out of place.

My new years resolution is to update this blog more often with my encounters with 33. So stay tuned for updates!

Happy 2K11!
