As we enter the world of 2021, it is good to know what the numbers mean to the symbology of higher consciousness. 2+0+2+1 = 5, which is the number of the Hierophant in sacred numerology. The Hierophant is a master teacher of family character. In other terms, it’s no longer about the iconic nature of a master teacher, but of the ‘grisht ashram’ (in Sanskrit) … the world of an awakened life that’s fully involved in worldly pursuits and family orientations.

This is a year of real life, in real life terms, one without the divisions and revisions of false hierarchies.

The Hierophant allows the emotional body to form nourishing connections with the master teacher — to recognize the master teacher is the same reality as a dedicated student … reachable and teachable. Rather than having the master on a pedestal, the Hierophant is placed as an equal amongst many and with great respect. This reflects back onto the student and is the emotional body’s fastest path to learning — this is the path of 2021. The cycle of the emotional body — also known as the ‘karmic body’ — is a cycle of seven years. Hence the saying, “break a mirror — seven years bad luck.” This reference to the mirror is referencing the deep connectivity of grisht ashram … the mirror of all relationships, in all settings, all around the world. When mastery consistently experiences the other as being itself, mastery multiplies.

Our prayer is that you allow yourself to experience this Hierophant and the nature of its common mastery within yourself right here right now; that you practice and build upon these magnetic expressions; that you stretch into this coming year with your voice, your silence, your breathing, your stillness and movement, and that this year of 5 becomes a home for you to always feel at home.
