IN NUMEROLOGY THERE ARE TWO NUMBERS that define conflict and chaos more than any other numbers. Simply, they are the 2 and 7; specifically, the 11 and the 16 — the latter being the transition roots of the single numbers 2 and 7 respectively.
This calendar year, 2016, is the quintessential conflation of these two potentially challenging energies. The United States Presidential election is just one glaring example of this duo. BREXIT in Great Britain was another. The great European migration still another. The violent attacks at Ohio State University (OSU) on 28 November, Monday, the latest but not the last.
The thing to remember is that the numbers of 2016 represent energies, energies which morph into the visible and concrete conditions of our lives and experiences. As the King's Numerology relentlessly points out, nothing is happenstance in this world. There is a design to all things, a design openly displayed in numbers — the divine coding system of life and destiny.
Regarding the energies of 2016, they're here and they're not going away. We either deal with them or be destroyed by them, but we cannot change them. To demonstrate and remonstrate against them is a refutation of the natural order of life. There are no safe zones in this world or in this creation. Maturity demands we acknowledge the reality of what is rather than childishly wishing for what might be.
Now to be clear, all numbers have two sides — one positive; one negative. In one aspect, the 2 represents perfect balance and peace at its zenith. However, it also represents imbalance and war at its nadir. The 7 exemplifies perfect centeredness and bliss at its apex but decenteredness and chaos at its nadir. Furthermore, every human being on the planet has both the 2 and 7 in their charts; some more than others, but they're still there. Thus, managing our lives rests in our ability to manage the polarities of both the 2 and 7 in the full range of their expressions. This is why knowing the numbers specific to each of our lives is important. Knowledge is power; ignorance is disaster.
As for the year 2016, it is as it is — a conjunction of the 2 and 7 (specifically the 20 and 16). This is why there has been so much division, disturbance and chaos this year. Confliction and chaos joined together is discomforting, to say the least. In fact, the energies of 2016 won't resurface again until the years 2079, 2088 and 2097. Why? Because the binaries of 79, 88 and 97 all have a 16 transition root. This means that the world won't have anything like this year for another 63 years. However, from then on every nine years until the turn of the century the Great Purifier's 16 energy will be active.

Managing the 2 and 7 Energies
Given the disruptive and chaotic mixture of 2016, how do we cope? Following are a few ideas. As a note, managing the energies of 2016 begins within ourselves first. If we passively wait until the entire world gets on board with acting on them (the energies of 2016) rather than reacting to them, we'll never succeed.
Remain "God centered." Whether you believe in God or not, it is an indisputable fact that some intelligence created us. We didn't create ourselves. That Creator is what we call God. We have an innate connection to this Source. It is truly omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent. The first principle in staying centered is to remain anchored in its Reality, in recognizing its presence and eternal power. When we stray from that Reality and lose conscious contact with it, we falter and fall.
On a more mundane note, consider the image of a hurricane with its swirling destructive winds rotating around the perfect calm of its eye. When the whirlwinds and worldwinds of our life beset us, we need to move to the center of the hurricane, i.e., the eye of the storm. In real actions this means to be calm within our own selves, our own center. Meditation or simply being still and gathering our thoughts will help us return to center. Discipline will help us stay there.
Another image that may help calm the agitated waters of our emotions is to visualize an absolutely calm, ripple-free pond, so calm and still it appears as a glass mirror. Because our adult bodies are around 70% water, and our emotions are "water-based," visualizing an image of perfectly still water will help stabilize us, recenter us.
These are just a few ideas of how to stay centered. The main thing to remember is to take action. Don't wait until the world or its masses become balanced and centered. They won't. We must take control of ourselves individually because the fundamental fact of life is that this is our life and it is our responsibility. No one else's.
In closing, this thought from one of the greatest minds in human history, Pythagoras, who said . . .
