Wall Street’s 777 Drop – What Does it Mean?

This morning I gave an interview for a Dallas morning radio show. The two hosts had great questions about the significance of Monday’s closing number on Wall Street. Let’s look at Monday’s date, September 29, 2008 and the number for the big drop – 777.

The fact that it happened yesterday, the 29th, is just one of many clues. 29/11 is a master number and signifies mastering all challenges by turning them into a positive. The key for this number …

What Is the Value of an Empty Glass?

The value of an empty glass is its emptiness. An eight-ounce glass has served its usefulness once it’s full. To continue to pour liquid leads to wastefulness.

A box filled with useless junk has little to no value, it is wise to empty the contents and filled it with something more useful. An inner space filled with false and harmful thought forms prevents positive thoughts to find space. One cannot …
