The Meaning of the Number 6

The Meaning of the Number 6

Many people ask me the meaning of the number 6,  and many have fears of the Revelations messages about the “mark.” So, this is a brief summary of the meaning:

Six has unique properties:

                                     1. Earthly matters. The number 6 refers to earthly matters, and you can find naturally occurring instances of 6 in magnified photos of water crystals and snowflakes. Slice open a tomato or bell pepper and you often find six chambers, like the bell pepper photo in this article. Honey combs are shaped as 6-sided hexagons. Here is a photo of a 6-pointed water crystal from the work of the late-great Dr. Emoto:

                                      2. Uniqueness. Six is very unique when compared to other numbers. For example, 6 is the smallest integer (a number larger than 0) which isn’t a prime or a square number. Six is also the smallest “perfect number” or Granville number, which means that 6 equals the sum of its dividers (3). Six is the only number which is the sum of three consecutive numbers (1+2+3=6). It’s also the only even number which isn’t a sum of odd cubes which are successive. There are even more number symmetries with 6, including one involving an aliquot tree.

                                      3. Half.  Since years and other measurements are conducted in lots of 12, the number 6 can represent half-way to your goal.

                                       4. Sacred geometry. The Star of David is the ancient Jewish symbol of a 6-pointed star.  And the 6-points are frequent symbols of health and healing, as this caduceus symbol shows:

In Angel Numbers, 6 refers to materialism, finances, or earthly worries. Like the Sermon on the Mount, when you see 6’s, it’s a reminder to set your intentions upon more spiritual sights instead of worrying about material needs. Six guides us away from money-worries (which will attract money-problems) and has us set our sights upon faith to supply our earthly needs. The more 6’s you see, the more you are guided to pray and ask for spiritual help, support, and guidance to get back upon the highest path.

And in the Biblical Book of Revelations, the number 666 is referred to as the mark of the beast, which has aroused much fear and speculation as to its meaning. Here’s the King James Version of the verse:

13: 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Many scholars though, argue that the number is actually 616 from the original Greek translation of John’s Apocalyptic writings.    616 in Angel numbers means: “Keep your thoughts positive about your earthly needs, as your thoughts are manifesting into form.”

Regardless of your beliefs, 6 is a powerful and unique number which definitely reminds us to keep our thoughts and actions as positive as possible.
