As I sat down to write my 5th blog of 60 today, it suddenly occurred to me that today is also the 18th! 1 + 8 =9. I already wrote a very important blog about the number 9; but everyone knows that 9 goes with 5, the way the Dolly Parton goes with Lilly Tomlin and Jane Fonda! So there it is again: 5! What does it mean?
I asked the wise and all-knowing internet to enlighten me. As it turns out, “The spiritual meaning of number Five deals with travel, adventure, and motion. With the highs that come with these attributes, Fives also carry instability and unpredictability, and radical changes.”
Did you know that if you mix ketchup with sriracha and add just a little bit of horseradish, it taste just like cocktail sauce? I discovered this completely by accident. Pretty amazing though.
It also turns out that, “when Five continues to pop up in your life be prepared for some action, like a trip. Remember, trips aren’t all necessarily taken physically. Some of the best journey’s are taken in the mind and spirit.”
Hmm, so perhaps we need to go on a little shamanic journey today. Ok, everyone close your eyes. Damn, that won’t work. Umm, what now?
Apparently the number 5 also means grace. My mom’s name is Grace. Does this mean I should take a trip to visit my mother?
Five is also the number of harmony and balance. It is the symbol of the Man-God by the five wounds of Christ on cross. It is also associated to man in general (2 + 3) having an unstable character of duality, 2, in spite of his divinity, 3.
Five is found on the human body: the five fingers of the hand and feet, the five senses (touch, taste, sense of smell, hearing and the sight), the five members (two arms, two legs and the head), the five bones forming the metacarpus, the metatarse and the brain-pan, etc. Five is considerated as the mediator between God and the universe, and is regarded as a symbol of the universe. And Five is a symbol of divine will and a symbol of perfection for the Mayans.
In short, 5 is bad-ass, and means a little bit of everything. Just by reading this blog, you are receiving the blessings of The Great Five Majestic Celestial Unicorns.
In conclusion: get yourself a Five Dollar Foot-long, and whatever else you need from the Five & Dime; drive five miles out of town, listening to a little Ben Folds Five, and at 5pm take five minutes to leave me a five word comment on this fifth blog. Thankyaverymuch.
