The Numerology of Jade Goody

Since the sad news of Jade Goody’s death on Mothering Sunday, there has been much discussion about why she became so popular. What was it about her that touched so many people?
For a while now, I have had an interest in Numerology – only an interest – I cannot claim to be an expert on the subject but I was intrigued to find out what Jade’s numerology was.
Numerology is the science of numbers which has been around for 2,500 years since Pythagorus created the Pythagorean Number System. He believed that the vibration or “tone” of the universe at the exact time of birth has an influence over a person’s character and destiny in life. I developed an interest in Numerology after reading Glynis McCants excellent book “Glynis Has Your Number” and I’ve used it time and time again to help me understand people’s characters, including my own!
Jade was born on 5/6/1981. Based on the information I have and on my own limited experience, this is my interpretation of why Jade was loved so much.
Jade had a Soul Number of 7. She would have found fulfilment in nature’s beauty. She needed a strong spiritual base that she could really believe in and this aspect of her vibration really emerged during her final days when her marriage and the christening of both her sons and herself became so important to her - she wanted her boys to be able to connect with her through Jesus. People may have been surprised about this as this is not a side of Jade they would have necessarily have seen. Our Soul vibration is what we feel inside but others don’t see.
Jade also had a Personality No of 7 which meant that her faith was doubly important to her. She would have been a keen observer of life but privacy would also have been very important to her. Her friends would have confided in her.
Jade had a Power Name Number of 5 which makes for a very high-energy person – a celebrator of life. There would never have been a dull moment with Jade around. She would have loved to travel and loved to make things beautiful both in her surroundings and for other people. She would have been an excellent party-giver and this showed in her wedding arrangements and even to the finer details of her funeral, which she has asked should be a Celebration of her life”.
Jade’s Birth Day Number was also 5 Having these two 5s would have made her very high-energy indeed. Some of the TV clips of her life really showed this. Also these two 5s in her vibration would mean that she could become bored very easily. At times, her double 5 vibration may have been exhausting for those around her.
Jade’s Life Path was 3. Our Life Path is our most important number because it is the sum total of our birth date and it is the vibration at which we came into the world. It is the number we must act upon in order to be truly happy. Jade’s 3 vibration would make her a born communicator, a born performer. She would love any sort of creativity, communication and connection with people. The downside of the 3 vibration is that if we are not able to express that creativity, we will create some kind of drama – anything to avoid being bored! The 3 Life Path has to guard themselves against extreme highs and lows. Jade would have wanted the world around her to be beautiful and she would have wanted to make it beautiful for others too. An important thing to remember with the 3 vibration is that if there are emotional scars from the original family which have not been dealt with, or if as a child you did not get the praise which you so desperately needed, this could cause you to live on the negative side of your vibration. Perhaps an example of this was Jade’s publicised confrontation on Big Brother – 3 vibrations must learn to bite their tongues if they are living on the negative side of their vibration. They tend to learn from adversity and there were certainly some tough lessons for Jade following Big Brother. The best medicine for a 3 vibration though is laughter and Jade enjoyed a lot of that, judging from the TV clips of her life.
Finally, Jade had an Attitude Number of 2. She would have been easygoing, loving and romantic. She would also have been intrigued with anything psychic or metaphysical and in touch with her intuition. She was fascinated by other people, seldom bored and very compassionate towards others.
Jade died on the 22/3/2009 which in Numerology is a 7 day. 7 is a spiritual number, she had put her house in order and aligned herself and her boys with her faith in God. She raised awareness of cervical cancer and the importance of its early detection and has probably saved countless lives. She did what she came here to do and left with dignity, surrounded by love. Her boys will grow up to be proud of her….

Incidentally the Chinese associate “Jade” with the 5 cardinal virtues of charity, modesty, courage, justice and wisdom. They also believe Jade has healing powers.
Fascinating isn’t it.

Snow causes loss of over £1 billion!

Am I the only person who doesn't care about the loss of £1 billion yesterday? All the news bulletins were focused on road and rail chaos (yes, admittedly it is important to know), and how businesses would suffer as a result of Mother Nature covering us in the most beautiful blanket of snow we've seen for years. At the end of each bulletin though, it showed the photographs which we were all sending in.....families having fun tobogganing by whatever means possible, trays, bin liners, actual toboggans if you were lucky enough to have one and, like my youngest son, even ski-ing. One clip showed a gentlemen who announced with glee "I've wanted to do this for YEARS" as he sped off on his skis down his urban street. I bet it took years off him! We walked through the woods with our neighbours and their children, with the grown-ups shaking the trees over the heads of the children causing them to collapse screaming and giggling under masses of snow. It was magical.

We have lived in our street for 22 years without meeting as many people as we met yesterday. Our son compared it to the 19th century when the streets were full of people - not vehicles. I didn't meet anyone who appeared to be worrying about the loss of £1 billion - did you?

There was a TV clip of a gentleman who was berating the government for not clearing the roads. He described us as "being like a third-world country". What a shame. This weather happens so rarely in our part of the world (the south of England), how can we justify spending millions on snow-clearing equipment which only comes out of the hangar once every 20 years. Boris Johnson tickled me pink (yet again) when he said in an interview that "It's the right kind of snow, just the wrong quantity of it". I am still laughing about it. Thank goodness that we've now got Boris and Barack instead of Ken and George! One says exactly what he thinks, regardless of whether its pc or not and the other means what he says - in no uncertain terms.
Anyway, the reason for this blog is because I wanted to say that Mother Nature is the BIG boss and we would do well to remember that and SURRENDER to the joy that she brought to us all yesterday. If everything comes to a standstill for too long, yes, we need to get it clear so we can deal with the health and safety of the frail and make sure everyone has enough food. But ONE DAY - come on - let's just all enjoy it. I've always said that we are our children's memory makers - when our children look back to February 2009 will they remember the fun in the snow or the fact that businesses had a bad day? No need to ask. Us Brits are ALWAYS great in a crisis - that wartime spirit is just under the surface waiting to come out so we can get creative. I have heard that people are much happier now than they have been in a long time, despite the credit crunch. We are discovering the fulfilment of cooking from scratch again, of "make do and mend" and trying to find ways to save energy.

A few years back, whilst caught in a bomb scare on the island of Ibiza, thousands of us were stuck on a concrete road in the July heat for 5 hours while the police carried out a controlled explosion in the airport. The Red Cross did us proud - arriving eventually with millions of bottles of mineral water. We saw angry people, frightened people, kind people who gave their hats to the disabled in wheelchairs and we saw that good old British spirit in the face of adversity. I did ask this man's permission to take this photo, because to me, he represented the essence of our countrymen - he surrendered to the situation and did the only thing he could do to avoid sunburn - HE PUT A CARDBOARD BOX ON HIS HEAD!!
Enjoy the snow, won't you...............
