In feng shui, nine (and increments of nine: 18, 27, 36, 45, and so on) is considered extremely powerful. In fact, nine is to numbers in feng shui as red is to color. It's simply super-charged, energized, GOOD feng shui.
So why NINE?
Nine is considered the number of completion, the point where one cycle ends and other begins, so it's in that wonderful in-between spot on the number spectrum, giving it a bit of magic.
It's also charged by the mystical number three, giving it a hidden power. After all, 3 times itself equals 9. And of course you remember your math tables: 9 times anything yields the number 9 when the digits are added. i.e. 9 x 5 = 45. 4 + 5=9.
Therefore the number 9 is considered steadfast, lucky, and symbolic of higher attainment, accomplishment, and success.
When using it for feng shui cures, it holds a certain power where other numbers may seem to "leak." One of my favorite uses of 9 is to cut red ribbons into increments of 9, 18, or 27 inches to make sure the cure is tight and sure.
I also like to occasionally give rituals or cures that last 9 or 27 days or use 9 or 27 items or mantras, or in the case of my upcoming on-line workshop, the fee adds up to the number 9.
All in all, nine has a very auspicious energy and when using it along with traditional feng shui cures, it has a practically fail-proof effect.
Each number holds its own magic and power -- which numbers do YOU resonate with?......
