How 21st Century numbers affect children


Excerpt from Numerology and Your Child by Jeanne Prosser and Penelope Ditchburn of Perth, Western Australia.

Numerologist and author Jeanne Prosser tells us the dramatic change in numbers that occurred when the clock ticked over into the 21st Century has brought with it a big energy shift.

As this energy continues to take form, possibilities of tapping into new kinds of learning are opening up. What is readily seen is that children born at the overlap of the two centuries are developing differently from their predecessors. Time will tell what impact this new generation will have on the future of mankind.

When my friend Penelope Ditchburn and I began to see the fascinating differences in the effects of the new numbers on the ‘Millenial’ children, we knew we  had to put our numerological observations into a book that would help parents understand them.

Numerology and Your Child

Raising children in today’s world can be a complicated and confusing process. Our children live in a complex, fast-paced world, a world of extremes. It is said they have come to Earth to share their wisdom, and support a unified consciousness as we move from the third dimension into the fifth, and beyond. What is it about these ‘new children’ that make them so different from any who have gone before?

Towards the end of the last century, there was an evolutionary leap with the new children arriving on our planet. The result was an influx of unique children with enormous potential that continues to the present day. These children are compassionate and heart-centred, creative and knowing. They are also non-conforming, easily frustrated and difficult to fathom.

One noticeable thing about the new children is that they have very short attention spans. They look at one thing, engage for a moment or two, then seemingly disinterested or bored, their minds quickly divert to something else. Their brains have evolved to enable them to absorb, receive, filter and process the massive amounts of information being relayed.

This group of children can multi-task like no other generation of the past.

‘… these children began incarnating around 1982, in the lead up to a rare planetary alignment called the Harmonic Convergence’

Harmonic Convergence

Who are the new children? Research suggests these children began incarnating around 1982, in the lead up to a rare planetary alignment called the Harmonic Convergence.

This means, in fact, that some of the new children are the parents of today’s children, leading the way into this new energy.

Born into the 1980s and 90s at a time when the frequency of the Earth began rising, they paved the way for the new generation of children incarnating since the turn of the century, whose DNA is said to differ from our own.

Is it possible to find out through numerology why children born in the new millennium are so different from any who have gone before?

Although only just beginning to skim the surface in my search for understanding, I do have some answers gleaned from the numbers. Before we delve into this a bit further, let’s understand a little about what numerology is.

Numerology is the study of numbers, their cycles, patterns, vibrations and influence. It tells us about our personal characteristics and unique talents and abilities, provides insight and direction and helps us develop focus when we lose our way. It gives a wealth of information about personal characteristics and our unique potential in life.

Life Path calculation              

Each number, although part of a cosmic field of energy, has its own individual vibration. To find out which number you are, simply take your date of birth and reduce it to a single digit between 1 and 9. This number doesn’t change over your lifetime and is called the Life Path.

The first step in obtaining the Life Path is to re-write the birth date, let’s say 24th May 2001, as 24/5/2001. Each individual digit is then added together 2+4+5+2+1 = 14. The final step is to reduce 14 to a single digit, 1+4 = 5. Therefore, the Life Path is Number 5.

The Number 5 child is sociable, fun and freedom loving. Charismatic by nature, friendships are formed easily, often with children of different nationalities. In fact, the 5 gets on with people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Finding the Master Numbers

As with many things in life, there are exceptions to the rule of reducing the birth date to numbers between 1 and 9. If the numbers add up to 11, 22 or 33 before being reduced to a single digit they are called Master Numbers. As such, all the qualities of these compound numbers of 11, 22 and 33 apply, as well as the base numbers of 2, 4 and 6.

To explain about the Master Number 11/2 we can use the birth date of 21/5/2010. 2+1+5+2+1 = 11/2. The base number 2 gives sensitivity, intuition, diplomacy and patience. The compound number 11 has all these characteristics but works at a higher vibration, bringing special qualities and abilities such as psychic sensitivity and a deep understanding of the needs of others.  

Unity Consciousness           

Looking specifically at children’s charts, at first glance their numerology is no different from ours. As with adults they have numbers that make up their birth dates. However, there is a big difference between birth dates of the last century compared with the present one.

Those of us born into the twentieth century have at least a single 1 in our birth date, giving us excellent powers of concentration and an ability to remain focussed. Number 1 is also about individuality and ego. It helps separate our identity from others. With the 2 leading the way into the twenty-first century, as in 2000, 2009 and so on, many children are missing a 1. Without a 1, there is no separation from others. For these children, life isn’t about the individual; it’s solely about Unity consciousness.

Positive qualities of 2

As the current century unfolds, the 2 dominates, bringing to the fore positive qualities of compassion, co-operation, sensitivity and intuition. The 2 energy is nurturing and heart-centred. Every single child born this century will have at least one 2, giving a deep connection and capacity for co-operation with others. The bigger picture is that this is part of the unifying consciousness of the fifth dimensional energy we’re moving into.

Another number frequently missing from the new children’s birth dates is 9. The 9 vibration gives us energy and drive. It is ambitious, dramatic and high-spirited. Without a 9, children can lack physical motivation, and may need encouragement to participate in sport and outdoor play. As a result, we are seeing increasing levels of obesity.

The most important difference in numbers between those of the 20th Century and the current century relates to the zero. The zero represents an energising life force and as such has the capacity to unlock higher vibrationary energies. When added to any other number it symbolises a perfection of that number. In a date of birth the zero magnifies and adds power and intensity to the number it falls beside regardless of whether this is the day, month or year of birth.

For those children born in 2006, the zero after the number 2 gives these insightful children a boatload of sensitivity and compassion, and adds potency to their naturally strong intuition. The zero before the 6 magnifies the need for harmony and balance in all things and augments natural creativity as these are characteristics of the number 6.

Millions of children born between 2000 and 2010 have birth dates containing three, four, or even five zeros, for example there are five zeros in the date 10th October 2000. In terms of numerology this means that children born in the formative years of the twenty-first century will, as they mature, have a powerful influence on future generations.

Respect their differences

Our new children are here to support us in aligning with the new Earth consciousness. We can, in turn, support them by recognising and respecting their differences and allowing them freedom. Freedom of expression and freedom to move beyond existing systems when they choose.

As parents, we need to be especially attentive to what they are communicating to us. Be gentle with them as they perceive life differently and are easily misunderstood. They bring with them a new kind of energy. This energy is based on pure love and comes from the heart.

Through these new children who support us in opening our hearts, mankind is encouraged to tap into and embrace a higher consciousness.
