If you are like famous motivational speaker Wayne Dyer, you may find yourself inexplicably waking up very late at night or very early in the morning, almost always at the same time every day.
Perhaps you wake up at 3:13AM like Wayne Dyer did for much of his life, or perhaps you wake up later like many of us, at a time like 5:55AM.
The time itself may seem to be just a coincidence. But Wayne Dyer says something different. Quoting the Sufi Mystic Rumi, Dyer wrote:
“The morning breeze has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you want. Don’t go back to sleep!”
Dyer goes on to explain in his book Inspiration: Your Ultimate Calling, that Spirit informs all of nature and can communicate with us in a variety of ways, like the morning breeze, the sunrise, the smile of our beloved and also through the numbers we see throughout the day.
In Numerology we look for the deep hidden meanings that spirit uses to communicate with us.
Our innermost, authentic selves are in touch with the spiritual dimension and if we understand the messages that are being communicated to us, we can make positive changes to our lives.
The Meaning of the Number 5
If we are going to explicate the number 555, first we should take a closer look at the numbers that make it up, particularly the number 5.
Five is the number of rapid change. In the Rider Waite Tarot deck, you will notice that the illustrations used to express the essence of the 5 cards in the minor arcana depict rapid and sometimes violent changes.
The Five of Wands, for instance, shows a battle scene; the Five of Coins (Pentacles) shows a person who has just suffered an injury and extreme financial losses as a result. The point is that the number 5 represents rapid change which can be for either good or for ill.
Because of this, it is important to note that above all 5 can be said to represent free will and personal freedom.
The number 5 seems to announce that a change is coming — the question then becomes are you going to let it happen to you, like those who are portrayed in the Tarot, or are you going to exert your personal freedom and take control of the situation?
Under the influence of a 5 vibration, either is possible, so it is up to you to make a choice.
The Spiritual Meaning of Number 555
The number 555 is an announcement that a change is coming in your life. This does not necessarily mean that the change will be bad, but it may seem like an unexpected difficulty.
Just know that when the number 555 keeps coming up in your life, the change you are going through is in every way positive. Therefore, stay positively focused and listen more closely than ever to your inner guidance.
In the opening we mentioned Wayne Dyer talking about how people will routinely wake up in the late night, early morning, almost every day.
Waking like this from a sound sleep is spirit speaking to you directly, and if you look up and see 5:55 on the clock, that is a message that positive change is on the horizon.
Spirit sends us messages throughout our day in a variety of ways. Often, spirit’s messages come in numerical form because we deal with numbers so often in our lives.
You may remember that the number 4 is the number relating to creative action founded on firm and stable foundations. Houses are built on foundations with four corners.
When you move up to the number 5 you are moving away from that stability. It is the first step from the stability of the number 4, so it is likely to seem less certain to you.
When spirit uses the number 555 to communicate to you, it is alerting you of the change that is coming but also letting you know that the change you are going through will be to your benefit.
The Essence of the Number 555
The number 555, when reduced to a single digit, has the vibrational essence of 6. This is found through the standard practice of reducing multi-digit numbers in Numerology:
5 + 5 + 5 = 15, and 1 + 5 = 6
Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher, called 6 the first perfect number. Perfect numbers are numbers that equal the sum of all of their divisors.
Other than itself, 6 is divisible by 1, 2 and 3, and when added together these three numbers equal 6. The essence of 6 then is harmony. That could mean a harmonious workplace or a harmonious home or even a serene and peaceful mind.
Therefore, when you analyze the meaning of 555 with this in mind, it means that it is the number of positive, harmonious change and spiritual transformation.
But this is only if you exert your personal freedom. When the number 555 appears as a dollar amount $5.55 or $55.50, or as a time you are being told to place your mind on the changes that you would like to see occur and stay positively focused.
You can activate a strong attractor energy that will draw favorable circumstances into your experience.
When you begin to notice messages from spirit, it will be as though you have awakened from a long sleep.
At that point remember what Rumi said: “The morning breeze has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep!” Those secrets are the stirring of your true self.
Heed its call: “Don’t go back to sleep! You must ask for what you want!”
