Seeing All 4′s – Symbolism of the Number Four and Its Repetition

4:44

Since it has become more than uncanny how many times and at such poignant moments the “4 energy” keeps showing up for me the last several months (and increasing by the hour), I thought I’d delve into more than the simple meanings and symbolism I already was aware of for this number vibration and repetitive message, and see what else it reveals. Rather than just keep the information to myself, I thought it might be fun and perhaps synchronous for others to read some of this “just in case” you, too, have been experiencing this phenomena in your life – as it does always seem to be that our collective experiences are aligned.

While I also see many other repetitive number pattern sequences, like 1′s, 2′s, 3′s, and 5′s, the 4′s have been very, very poignant and increasingly multiplying more than any other recently. I can’t begin to tell you all the unusual, interesting, synchronous, and miraculous ways repeating 4′s show up in clocks that don’t work, exact moments of thoughts and major experiences, as well as $ amounts on pivotal things/timing that herald a marker of support in beautiful and expansive ways – all feeling like a green light of being on path. I am thankful beyond words for the support, which is received in heart-full embrace and loving gratitude.

Needless to say, I find the “4″ symbolism to be very accurate and reflective of things for me energetically in my life at this time based on my focuses, resonation, where I feel drawn, and what I am experiencing supportively. Below you’ll find some insights into the meaning behind the number 4 and the messages linked to seeing it repetitively from various sources. Happy number fun to you!

Four: The symbolic meaning of number Four deals with stability and invokes the grounded nature of all things. Consider the four seasons, four directions, four elements all these amazingly powerful essences wrapped up in the nice square package of Four. Fours represent solidity, calmness, and home. A recurrence of Four in your life may signify the need to get back to your roots, center yourself, or even “plant” yourself. Fours also indicate a need for persistence and endurance.

Numbers and Their Meanings

Four is the 4th dimension = time which is illusion.

Foundation

The are four cardinal points; four seasons; four winds; four directions (as in North, South, East, West); four elements (Fire, Water, Air, Earth) in the western culture.

There are four sides to a square; four arms to a cross. There are four rivers to Paradise, that formed a cross (the Garden of Eden was said to be within the four rivers). Within Paradise were four infernal regions, seas, and sacred mountains. There are four watches of the night and day, quarters of the moon. There are four quarters to the earth. There are four tetramorphs. The Divine Quaternity is in direct contrast to the Trinity. Four is a symbolic number used throughout in the Old Testament. The quaternary can be depicted as the quatrefoil as well as the square and the cross.

Cultural References 

Native American: As in other cultures, ceremonies and ritual acts are repeated in fours. The Native Amercican cultures have used the number 4 most frequently as in the four cardinal directions. The four winds are depicted by the symbol of the cross and by the symbol of the swastika. The swastika as some misbelieve was not created by Hitler. It was instead borrowed from the Native American and occult beliefs of which Hitler had great interests. Hitler derived his “insanity” of power from his misdirected interpretation and use of metaphysical principles. He used knowledge that his human consciousness couldn’t possibly understand and the use of this knowledge for personal gain is part of the imbalance that creates the chaos and karma.

Buddhism: The Damba Tree of Life has four limbs and from its roots four sacred streams of Paradise that represent the the four boundless wishes of compassion, affection, love impartiality. It also represents the four directions of the heart as well.

Chinese Buddism: there are four celestial guardians of cardinal points are Mo-li Ch’ing, the East, with the jade ring and spear; Virupaksha, the West, the Far-gazer, with the four-stringed quitar; Virudhaka, the South, with the umbrella of choas and darkness and earthquakes; Vaisravenna, the North, with the whips, leopard-skin bag, snake and pearl.

Chinese: Four is the number of the Earth, symbolized by the square. There are four streams of immortality. Four is even an number. It is Yin in polarity.

Christian: Four is the number representing the body, with three representing the soul. Again we see the theme of the four rivers in Paradise. There are four Gospels, Evangelists, chef arch-angels, chef-devils, four Fathers of the Church, Great Prophets. There are four cardinal virtues–prudence, fortitude, justice, temperance. The are four winds from which the One Spirit is said to come. There are four horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Revelation: There are four angels standing at the four corners of the Earth, holding back the four winds of the earth (Rev 7:1). The great multitude from every nation, tribe, people and language (four-fold description) – Rev 5:9 11:9 13:7 14:6 the four-fold description indicates that these people come from all over the earth.

Egyptian: Four is the sacred number of Time, measurement of the sun. Four pillars support the vault of heaven. There are four canopic jars placed around the dead at the four corners guarded by the four sons of Horus who are associated with the cardinal points. In the Hermetic it is the divine quaternity. It represents God.

Gnostic: belief in Barbelo, the Four-ness of God.

Greek: Four is the sacred number of Hermes.

Hebrew: Four represents measuring; beneficence; intelligence. In the Kabbalah four is memory; four represents the four worlds of the Kabbalah.It also represents the four directions of space and the four levels of the hierarchical organism of the Torah.

Hindu: Four is Totality; plenitude; perfection. Brahma, the Creator is four faced. The temple is based on the four sides of the square, symbolizing order and finality. There are four tattvas the four bodies bodies of human and kingdoms of nature which are animal, vegetable, mineral, mind. There are four yugas. Four is the winning throw of the dice. There are four castes and pairs of opposites.

Islamic: tradition the four terms of the quaternary are the Principle which is Creator; Universal Spirit; Universal Soul; and the primordial matter. These correspond to the four worlds of Kabbalism. There are four angelic beings and four houses of death. There are four levels to the Bardo.

Mayan culture: Four giants support the celestial roof. Four is seen as the number of support .

Pythagorean: Four is Perfection; harmonious proportion; justice; the earth. Four is the number of the Pythagorean oath. Four and ten are divinities. The Tetraktys 1+2+3+4=10.

Scandinavian: there are four rivers of milk flowing in Asgard.

Sumero-Semitic: Four astral gods are indentified with the four cardinal points.

Teutonic: Four dwarfs support the world.

Taoist: There are four celestial guardians, Li, with the pagoda; Ma, with the sword; Cho with two swords; Wen with a spiked club.

Numerology369.com’s Numerology: Symbolic Meanings of Numbers shares:

4 – FOUR - Symbolically number 4 represents the cross and quadrant. It points to something strong, perceptible and material that we can recognize on our own. Since it is related to the cross, number 4 signifies integrity and plentifulness.

There are four basic elements (water, earth, wind and fire), four phases of the Moon, four seasons, and four directions (north, south, east and west). According to the theory of Pythagoras (582 – 500 BC), a Greek philosopher and mathematician, number 4 symbolizes a decade that is the sum of the first four cardinal numbers (1+2+3+4=10). In the last book of the New Testament, number 4 symbolizes four riders of the Apocalypse (war, civil strife, hunger and death). Tetrad, a cardinal number representing the sum of 1 and 3, is seen as the symbol of the unified world.

THE QUALITIES OF PEOPLE WITH NUMEROLOGICAL 4

People with number 4 are active, hard-working, systematic, diligent, careful, objective, firm, introverted, serious, patient, reserved, thoughtful, sensible, analytic, calm, orderly and loyal.

PsychicJoanne.hubpages.com’s Angel Numbers – Recurring 4′s has this to say:

Attributes of the Number 4

Hard work, security, practicality, productivity, appreciation, tradition, solid foundations, security-consciousness, self-control, loyalty, conscientiousness, high morals and ethics, traditional values, honesty, strong-willed, wisdom, conservative, application, determination, the serious builder, progress, the doer, management, realistic values, stability, wholeness, unity, ability, justice, goal-orientated, system, order, organisation, responsibility, maintenance, construction, seriousness, discipline, dependability, conviction, self-discipline through work and service.

The essence of the number 4 is security, diligent work and strong foundations. It represents the four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth, and the four sacred directions, North, South, East and West.

The number 4 symbolizes the principle of putting ideas into form and it signifies work and productivity. The 4 energy is constructive, realistic, traditional and cautious and is the number of system, order and management. This vibration is to do with energy, harmony and co-operation and it is the door to illumination and/or initiation.

When 4’s consistently appear it indicates that your angels are all around you and with you. They are offering you support and inner-strength to enable you to get the necessary work done. They understand that you are toiling towards your goal and ask that you call upon them for help, support, guidance and the emotions of love and security.

The 44 sequence indicates that the angels are surrounding you at this time, loving and supporting you. You have a very strong and clear connection with the angelic realm and are asked to use it to your advantage, and for the benefit of others.

The message of the 444 number sequence is that you have nothing to fear … all is as it should be, and all is well. Things that you have been working on or with will be successful. 444 is an indication that you are being surrounded by angels who love and support you and their help is close at hand, always.

When the number sequence 4444 appears repeatedly, it is an indication that you are surrounded by your angels. These angels are at your side to reassure you of their presence, love and help. Your angels are watching out for you and supporting you in your work and day to day life. 4444 is a message from the angels that their help is nearby and all you need to do is ask for their assistance.

Also from Psychic Joanne, some information on what it means when number patterns repeat themselves in your experience: Angel Numbers Repetitive Number Sequences

And of course this simple message many have come to know from Doreen Virtue’s Number Sequences from the Angels that mirrors Joanne’s sharings:

444 - The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don’t worry because the angels’ help is nearby.

Whether or not you are experiencing the repetitive 4 sequences, may you always realize you are supported and loved, and the angelic realm is there to assist if you ask. Simply recognize your divinity, condition yourself to be more present to receive the signs and messages around you always, and learn to walk through life as the miracle you are and you’ll find life to be as magickal as you dreamed it could.

(Of course as I just finished writing this, the clock turned 11:11 – had to prove a point of course) LOL

  • Number Sequences from the Angels Open or Close

    by_the_numbers

    by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

    The angels do their best to get our attention and to communicate with us. In this way, they help us heal our own lives. However, we often discount the signs they give us, writing them off as mere coincidences or our imagination. The angels say: "We can't write our messages to you in the sky. You've got to pay attention and believe when you see any patterns forming in your life — especially in response to any questions or prayers you've posed. When you hear the same song repeatedly or see the same number sequence, who do you think is behind this? Your angels, of course!"

  • The Esoteric Significance Of Numbers Open or Close

    one_to_nine

    The following summarizes the beliefs of some modern numerologists. Note that there is no scientific or mathematical evidence to show that numbers exhibit these properties.

    Note also that the association of various meanings to specific numbers in the time of the European Renaissance, when numbers were worked into the detailed fabric of musical, poetic, & architectural artifice, was both far richer and far more precise than the modern summaries offered here.

    Numbers one to nine are used in present-day numerology to determine character analysis and predict upcoming trends. Other numbers are thought to carry vibrational influences which must also be taken into consideration, as must also the connection of astrology, numbers, and locational addresses, e.g. "Seven Star Road."

    Finding Your Personal Year Number

    Here is a formula for finding your Personal Year Number:

    To find your Personal Year number, add the month and the day of your birth, plus the Universal Year number. (This formula will work for any year by using the universal year number of the current year and adding up those numbers accordingly, i.e., for 2018 the Universal Year number is 11=2; 2+1+8=11=2)

    For example, someone born on May 15 finds his or her Personal Year number by adding 5 (May) plus 6 (the fifteenth day) plus 2 (2018) to arrive at a Personal Year number of 13 ( 5+6+2=13), which is reduced to 4.

  • What's Your Number? What Your Phone Number Reveals About You Open or Close
    smart phone

    If you’re interested in numerology then you know that numerology would say your house number exerts a huge influence on you, just like your birth number. But what about our phone numbers? We can say we choose the day we incarnate in order to experience a certain life path and its lessons. The same goes for where we live. Many people believe that houses ‘choose’ their occupants. The energy of a house contains certain experiences and events and the house either wants you to experience that energy – or not. So, where does this leave our phone numbers which are after all, usually randomly assigned by the phone company. This is where synchronicity comes in. Our phone numbers can often reflect our communication energy or what we need to know about communication style. Often spooky synchroncities can be revealed when we work out our phone’s ‘communication number’ as this can often be the same as our birth or life-path number.

    House numerology can affect your well being. Since numbers are vibrations, your address sets the tone for your entire living space.
