222 are often referred to as Angel Numbers. In numerology, the number 2 signifies balance, harmony, peace, duality and partnership. When this synchronicity of numbers appears, it is usually a lesson in making resolutions with the past, being compassionate to yourself and others, and living a life in harmony through nature and spirit.
When the number 2 is in a repeating sequence, the energy that is manifested is potent. It's "super-charged" so to speak. In the realms of astrology, a manifestation portal is said to be opened. It's a divine moment to give gratitude, make peace, and become centered.
To speak more on synchronicity and self care, we sat down with Shiva Rose, the original wellness and spiritual influencer. Kourtney Kardashian even credits Shiva for her introduction to holistic wellness over a decade ago.
What does synchronicity mean to you?
Shiva Rose: Synchronicity for me is when I am aligned with spirit, therefore finding myself in a harmonious rhythm with life.
With so much uncertainty and tribulations in the world right now, how do you stay centered and grounded?
Shiva: Staying grounded for me comes from taking walks without my phone on the country roads near my home. It's important to disconnect from modern technologies and ground with the earth.
What connects you to astrology/celestial science? How does it resonate in your day to day life?
Shiva: I follow the moon cycle pretty closely, and have a moon course that discusses ways to be more in touch with this feminine energy. There's a connection between the moon, the planets, and the feminine cycle.
Do you have any rituals planned for 2.22.22?
Shiva: I will practice a Kundalini meditation and journal intentions for this holy portal.
If you could give a word of advice to someone who is wanting to embark on a spiritual path but is overwhelmed by where to start, what advice would you give them?
Shiva: I would say to start a simple meditation first thing upon waking. Ask your soul what it yearns for and give a gratitude list.
What is your wish for humanity in 2022?
Shiva: I hope we start truly respecting one another, regardless of any division being created by the powers that be. I also hope we can create better solutions and alternatives around plastic, and begin to ban it globally. It's detrimental to our Earth and to our bodies.
To kick start your wellness and self care love, Shiva recommends her Blue Butter Cleansing Balm from her eponymous skincare line. A luxurious, blue butter, that lovingly melts away makeup, pollution, and free radicals to leave skin supple, clean, and glowing. Using beautifully rich nourishing oils like sandalwood nut, argan, jojoba, shea, camellia, and Olive squalane to help build the cell structures of the skin, while gently clearing away impurities.
