Right at the strike of midnight, the global energy of each year changes. This 2018 year is one that is most auspicious as it adds to a master 11. This is double the power of the one - a forceful push into the unknown, often shaking up our core belief systems.
Thus in the first two weeks we have observed all the women at the Golden Globes wearing black and making a statement of solidarity to change women's rights and be treated fairly. And the president of the United States making statements that stir and offend the emotions and dignity of its people as well as other countries. He too is a catalyst of shaking us all up. (I promise this will not be a political commentary, but written as an observer of the chaos that is going on in this country.)
What is in store for you in 2018? According to 2018 numerology, this global year is a "portal" for all of us. The master 11 is the energy of divine inspiration, leadership, and new beginnings. It is a time of tapping into the wisdom that comes from our intuition and the connection to our higher power, beyond our intellect. When we do this, we have a clear channel to discover truth and to make a difference in our lives and others.
Something new is happening. Do you feel it? In mastery, an eleven vibration can shift what has been the norm because you are tapping into the universal collective of light and intelligence. You are connecting with the divine knowledge from the source of all things.
The new doorway is the opportunity to step through our conceived failures, our judgmental insecurities, our “it’s too late” thought forms and open to a very new experience of potential beyond what we have ever experienced. Of course, we have to do the work. It means we have to look at what we have been putting up with, in our relationships, our careers, and ourselves. Have we limited our full potential because of fear of how others will react? Have we limited our own power because of a belief system that we have taken on or have heard from others?

This might be nice in a box about Oprah.
“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” —Oprah Winfrey

Are you Ready to Walk Through the Portal?
What a wild ride we had during 2017 — all levels were affected: our politics, our environment, our emotions, and our belief systems. We have been moved to keep our eyes wide open and aware. 2018 promises to be a time to take action and to make a difference in your life, your relationships and in the world. It is truly a time of letting go, speaking our truths, and enjoying the ride.
(omtimes note: this is interesting information but if you need to cut, go ahead and cut this section about the Yin and Yang
11 (double ones) is the energy of action, the yang. Two (2) is the feminine and intuitive energy of the yin— sensitivity and relationship. When we tap into the 11/2, we can learn about balance and duality. There are two contrasting elements in order to form one whole. As the duality of light and dark, stillness and movement, without one, there is no other.
So in the global year of 11/2, the direction is clearer. It had to happen.. our world and our systems have been breaking down. Systems are breaking down. It is a wake-up call and we are invited to keep our eyes wide open. If we stay awake, we can deal with the masculine/feminine energy within us — not diminishing either, or making one more powerful than the other.

It is not about relinquishing our power or dimming our light. By fearlessly facing the truth, we can break the patterns from old dynamics that do not serve us or the people we love.
(Om Times, I think this piece should go on a separate page. Can you do that?
All of us have a specific personal year 2018 theme based on your birthday. The global year of 2018 will influence our personal year in a very big way. (See info on the Global Year of 2018 above for details) (if this is on a separate page, link the global 2018 article.)
By using the formula below, you can find the specific theme that you will experience during 2018 according to numerology. It is a perfect time to set new intentions and goals.
To calculate, add the month and day of birth to the current year.
So if your birthday was April 1, it would be calculated as so:
REMEMBER: if your personal year calculates to a master number 11 or 22, do not reduce.
So, if your birthday is April 1, your personal year is a 7. The seven year is an inner journey – a spiritual time of connecting inside of self in order to seek the truth. Perhaps exploring the unknown and embracing your nonconformity. With this theme, the 11 will help you push through your shyness and explore something new in your life.
Here are brief descriptions of the theme you will find in your 2018 personal year. How will you embrace your life and lessons every day with a unique approach? Tap into your intuition and let go of old patterns that are not working. Once you have calculated your personal year, check out the definitions below and discover what you will encounter this year. What are you willing to let go of?
1 – Year of new beginnings and innovative ideas. You might attract a new job or a vibrant relationship. Challenge: fear of taking the next step.
2 – Connecting in relationships of all forms – romantic, business, social and self. Challenge: caring too much what others think.
3 – Year of creativity and self-expression in every form – art, music, speaking, writing. Challenge: fear of sharing your voice.
4 – Year of the builder, the organizer, a great time to get something done. Challenge: feeling bogged down by all the work you are doing or feeling overwhelmed.
5 – Year of fun, increased social life, travel, and energy. Being out there in the world with people. Challenge: feeling a loss of freedom, overwhelm, or too much on your plate.
6 – Year of all matters of the heart. Dealing with family, loved ones, community, relationships. This could be a time of marriage, birth or rebirth. Challenge: experiencing loss, feeling overburdened or taking on too much responsibility.
7 – Year of spirituality and connection with inner self, year of unique thoughts and actions. Challenge: feeling unsociable, withdrawn, fear of speaking your truth.
8 – Year of abundance, leadership, and manifestation. A great time to achieve your dreams. Challenge: Being too self-consumed. Feeling over-burdened. Instead of being the leader, feeling oppressed, or the victim.
9 – Year of transformation, transition, and completion. A time to examine your life and see what new path to take. Challenge: Will you see the lessons of what you have been putting up with and decide to change the direction of your life?
11/2 – Master year of inspired ideas and actions. These ideas can influence and inspire others and may deal with your relationships (2). Don’t leave yourself out of the equation! Challenge: Having many dreams but not acting on them. (Being in a master 11 personal year in the global year of 11 will be doubly powerful for you. Try not to get too overwhelmed:)
22/4 – Year of mastery in relationships (2) and building (4). This is a time to connect with others in a profound way and make a difference. A great time to achieve a project with others. Challenge: Taking on a project without asking for help. Taking it all on and caretaking others.
