Decode Your Reality

Gematria is the practice of coding numbers into words.  In the beginning, according to the Book of Formation, God merged the letter with the number. Gematria is from the Kabbalah.

There are many different ways or ciphers to figure out the Gematria of a word or phrase. The English ordinal method a=1, b=2,c=3, z=26..etc  The English Reduction method: z=26..2+6=8  The Reverse English ordinal method: a=26, b=25…y=2,z=1  and the Reverse Reduction method: a=8, b=7..etc..These follow the rules of numerology. The letter “S” is the 19th letter in the alphabet. In reduction “s” can also be 10 and 1.

Nice Description of Spring in Today’s History 3/20/18

1858: “The mild and balmy breezes of Spring are at length upon us. The snow banks, in which all moisture has been suspended for weeks, have commenced discounting freely while their deposits are daily diminishing, indicating a very free circulation. There is less inquiry for mud; occasionally a patch of ground grows a shade firmer, while ladies dresses are slightly on the rise. But this state of things cannot last.”
