• Number representing the union of Trinity, whose result of their common action makes emerge the creation.

• For Claude of Saint-Martin, "the number 21 is the number of destruction or rather of universal termination, because, as 2 is separated from 1, it is necessary that it has a means of to unite there if it wants it. This number shows at the same time the command of the production of things and their end, as well in the spiritual one as in the corporal one."

### 21 Turkey Vultures

by Wendy - 11/20/16 9:23 AM
Yesterday we saw 21 Turkey Vultures. They were accompanied by 3 Ravens. We are going thru a difficult time, 3 of our dogs died this year. 2 died of heart disease, the other of cancer. I was so sad I had to go to the hospital. I'm know this is a message from God Spirit, but what it means for us I have to see?? I know Turkey Vultures are great birds of sacrifice. They eat dead animals that could spread diseases if they laid around rotting. They share their meals with other colonies of TV'S. But the 21??
The odd thing was when my husband went into the store, they disappeared. When he came back they did too.
Ravens are symbolic of magic in a good way. Different than Crow. Crows are warning birds.
Ravens remind us that the Universe is up to something and for us not to worry.

since 5777 is Hebrew year for 2017 until September,then 7+7+7=21. all these meanings written above of 21 are happening in 2017 possibly.'Symbol of the person centered on the object and either on himself' the year of selfishness.'The words Flood and star are used 21 times in the Bible.' the 'flood' could come as in days of noah,so also coming of Son of Man,the flood for judgment.Jesus appears in 21 different places of the Palestine to confirm in His Resurrection those who believe in Him.' maybe this is the year to confirm a resurrection soon to come of the Christians who have died?For Claude of Saint-Martin, "the number 21 is the number of destruction or rather of universal termination'...'The word angel is pronounced 21 times by Jesus, always to the plural. this might refer to the times of the book of revelation showing the many angels are going to appear on the world scene more visibly.'It is around the age of 20 or 21 years old that the man reaches his final size.' this would say 5777 is a year of... more...

### Experience with 21

by KG - 5/16/12 6:18 PM
I also had this experience with the number 21 some years ago where it seemed to pop up everywhere I turned...on signs, billboards, bumper stickers, whatever. I didn't feel that I was looking for it so much as just suddenly started to notice it was appearing everywhere. I don't recall how long it lasted, but after a little while, it no longer seemed to be everywhere. I've never had this experience again or with a different number. I felt like there must be a message in it for me, but what? I know a lot of people might say that it's coincidence or paranoia, but I'm not so sure about that. To this day, the number 21 is ingrained in my mind, to the point that if I were ever asked to pick a number for any reason, my response would always be 21.

### The amazing number 21

by Chris Zoneone - 2/20/17 11:23 PM
The number 21 is so extraordinary and unexplainable to me ...my birthday is 9/21/87 and the number 21 has been with me my whole life literally everywhere I go .. in fact I even put it on my skin as my first tattoo at the age of 13 .. I really can't fully comprehend the strong attraction as well as the synchronicity that I have surrounding this number 21 but after reading everything available on this site I'm left astonished at the possibility that this could really be a true blessing for all of us that hold the power to this magical and prophetic number 21 .......

### Finally found you all! (been haunted by 21 all the time)

by jovanka alexandra - 11/10/16 11:44 AM
i'm glad i'm not the only one who has been haunted by 21, seriously its getting creepier for me so i decided to find what is 21 supposed to mean so i found all of you guys, so its starts when i was 17, i've seen number 21 everywhere, its not even coincidents at all, its everywhere. okay, i'm going to share my experience about this number, is it creepy? when you planned to watch a random movies in the middle of the movies there's 21 on their street, and when you go on road trips you fall asleep and then you woke up and suddenly its 21 infront of you right after you opened your eyes, or going to shopping there one empty boxes and when you took a look inside of it its another 21, or when you randomly sat on 21 table and looking around and found 21 at someone's tshirt, and you know what? theres this time when my friend wanted to tell me about the fireworks, because we are not at the same place so he decided to call me with facetime to shows me up the fireworks, and suddenly theres 21 and its the only number i see... more...

I feel the exact same way. It began when I turned 17, on 11/21. I just turned 20 and I still continue to see the number every time I look at the clock, everywhere I look, and go. It has only gotten more haunting, and chilling; I've attempted to explain the experience to my father, mother, and even my best friend and they can make no sense or even grasp what I'm talking about... until I point at the clock when it says '21' and say "Look, it's happening again." I feel slightly comforted to hear you describe your situation SO similar to mine, but then it begins to make me wonder in concern even MORE what in the world seeing this number all of the time is supposed to entail? I wish you the best of luck on your spiritual journey, and I hope you are one day able to make sense of it all.

3:00 a.m. is a thin veil to the other side. Its when we are closest to death. Many movies have the ghosts appear at 3:00 a.m. its not a bad number, its the time when a vortex opens. And a death is nearing. Always use 3:00 a.m. for positive wishes and spiritual practices. Evil can come thru too. Its a doorway to the other side, good or bad.

### Looking to be enlightened in spirituality

by Leilani - 10/19/16 12:17 AM
All my life I've had this feeling of bring good to the world and recently i was lost until I regain my curiosity for spiritual religion. Im just searching site by site to help me "soul search." I came across arithomancy that lead me to calculating my life path numbers and it calculated to 21. My birthday is 09/30/1998 9+(3+0=3)+(1+9+9+8=27) (2+7=9) 9+3+9=21
not saying that it means something but it would be cool to being a step closer to figuring out life itself and whats to come.

I than tried to calculate my full name which led to both number (8, & 17) i looked it uo and they both show positive results. and also i had the urge to just draw an 8 today and the symbol behind the number is said it's a divine sign that your prayers for supply and abundance have been heard and are being answered.

### Message behind the number #21 that bring all of us together?

by Beste - 2/17/15 6:37 PM
What I believe is everything happens for a reason. It's been a long time that I've been noticing #21 in my life. Even when I send a mail or a message time shows 21 on very crucial events of my life. For example last morning I woke up for pray/salat without an alarm and as soon as I woke up ı looked at the time and there it's the #21.
Everyone has similar stories and what's unique is the #21. Now just think for a while... This number also make us curious and so we search the meaning behind it and we meet in here. I'm writing you from Turkey. From different parts of the world we all together are searching for the meaning of it? Is this number 21 a spiritual message? Throuhout the day God give all of us some messages to guide us, to protect us. God wants us to remember His power and He give us security and peace by His angels.

Well, my experience with Number 21 started since i was at the age of 21. Somehow, it started with Roll Number at my master degree, then i realized the district number was 21. Then it chased me everywhere, not sure whether it is good or bad, some of my colleagues call me by No 21. Then it started into peaks, i have started comparing with every date. India got independence on 1947, which is 1+9+4+7 =21 and declared republic day 1956 = 1+9+5+6 =21 and i see Muslim favorite number 786 = 7+8+6 = 21. And Now i see in this blog even in christian community 21 has a vital role. In hindu dharma too, 21 has a vital role. They name the kid after 21 days, and i hear this number very often at every occasion in Hindu culture. I don't know, i end up seeing this number everywhere, shops like forever 21, Movie itself 21, and most likely i get into the houses that ends up having this number one way the other. Right now i'm staying at Building # 18 and flat number 3 = 18+3 =21.
