Loving Yourself More; It is as easy as 1,2,3

Loving yourself is as easy as 1 2 3....

Using Numerology to appreciate and love yourself

Video Version

You understand how important it is to love yourself, right? Those around you are a reflection of how you do that. Take a moment and look at your life from this perspective. Are you getting all the love you want? Is your heart about to burst? Or could you use a tad more?

As we get older we get better at loving and accepting ourselves. Part of this maturity comes from having children. They expand your heart in such a big way. Our children remind us we are all intrinsically good and easy to love.

What if you struggle to love yourself fully? That would be me. That is my struggle, still. It is a hard thing to admit. Most important though is realizing we could all love ourselves a bit more. Once we accept this we can move forward in doing so.

Often I see this resistance to self love and acceptance while giving readings. When I tell a client something true about themselves, they quickly dismiss what I am saying. This reaction reminds me of myself and I console myself with the hope they will accept the message at some point.

Recently I gave a reading to a 30/3, telling her she is social and her numbers indicated leadership. She laughed, “That is totally not me.” Later she admitted to being offered more responsibility at work and didn’t take it on out of fear. The reading changed her mind, not only that but after she took on more responsibility at work, she started a side hustle of running her own business. Beautiful!

Loving yourself fully is not easy. It requires you to be vulnerable. Most of all, it requires you to not give a shit about what people will say or think of this new stuff you are doing. They will get over it, and if they don’t, oh well. You have bigger fish to fry and can not let them hold you back.

Back in 2004, I had my first practice at doing what I needed to do to honor myself and not listen to others. I was still feeling a bit lost, even after graduating from college. A quote on my bulletin board nudged at me. The quote was about how moving forward meant you would be leaving others behind. The desire in me to move forward grew. It asked me to leave my home town and to end a relationship with a man I loved very much. Moving would upset some people, they were going to be angry, but I had to do it. In retrospect, I am so glad I listened to my inner voice.

So much can be gained when you get yourself into new, all be it, uncomfortable situations. Start small.

Here are a few suggestions based on your Numerology. First, use this formula to calculate your Health and Wellness Life Path.

Numerology 1 by Tricia Gunberg.jpg

Leadership and Weirdness

No matter where your 1 appears in your Health and Wellness Life Path you must find a place where you can be a leader, a place where you call all the shots. Focus on what makes you unique- this is hard to do, I know. Most often I ask my clients to consider what they think makes them weird- that is were you need to go, to your weirdness. 


2 Numerology by Tricia Gunberg.jpg

The fact that you are sensitive makes this really hard to tell you: Get over yourself. You are WAY to busy worrying about other people that you can’t see the forest through the trees. Your sensitivity is there fro a reason, so you can tune into yourself, not others. Here is a new moto for you to live by:

                Help, if asked, but only if you love the task.

Resentment will eat you alive if you do not start doing things you enjoy doing. You help no one by ‘doing’ anything that makes you angry, resentful, tired or irritated.



3 Numerology by Tricia Gunberg.jpg

You 3’s can be kinda stubborn. This stubbornness is a helpful attribute when you have found creative outlets you enjoy doing and won’t give up. On the other hand, if your stubbornness insists on believing shit like; “I don’t have the money” or more famous, “I don’t have the time,” you’re in trouble. The creative expression that is the 3 needs to be expressed. If you have not experienced everyway and all ways to creatively express yourself, you might be one hot mess. You are full of creative energy that needs to be expressed. Find a way, now. A good place to start is by writing. Costs you nothing, you already have the tools. “Blah”, is what I call this exercise; set your timer for 5 minutes, writ what ever comes to your mind. Even if it is, ‘nothing comes to my mind, this is stupid, I’m not a writer.’ Do this every day for a minimum of 2 weeks or follow the prompts in The Artists Way.  


Please explore some ways to love on yourself, even if you are convinced you do a good job. You’ll be helping the Universe by sending out that loving energy.

Energy of a Full Moon; Evidence, Exercises and Inspiration to Support You

Have you been offered an opportunity that is both scary and exciting at the same time?

I have had evidence that suggests you will be offered an opportunity. First, the Full Moon on January 31; full moons are about manifesting. Second, 2018 is an 11 Universal Year; there will be new things and new beginnings because issues will be illuminated which you will want to change. Coupled with a shift in to Leo. Leo is leadership and radiance! Which tells me it is an opportunity that is going to be epic. 

Oh man, on top of that there is an eclipse! All of the astrologers I follow (Kelley Rosano, Kari Samuels, The Leo King, and Lada) are all saying the same thing: the eclipse will illuminate something important. The something important depends on where the eclipse is in your chart. Lada pointed out that since the energy is in Leo, it will be of your own making because of the leadership aspect of Leo. Note that a few weeks ago I suggested we look back over the last year to see what seeds we had planted. (Also Message from the Leo) Lada and I are both talking about the same thing: you have set in motion the events that will occur in the next 3 months. I love when messages repeat and more so that the planets are saying the same thing as numerology. (Check out my Facebook live for this message.)

The energy will also cause a push- pull of “stay safe” and “let’s do something epic”, which can be crazy making. Maybe it makes you grumpy if you feel you cannot follow it or guilty if you are considering it.

Change is growth. Growth can be uncomfortable- so what? Can you imagine a rose bud refusing to bloom because it was afraid? Are you glad roses can’t think?

Okay, if you want to ‘think’ about it then I will refer to the book “Quantum Leap” where Cynthia Sue Larson gets all sciency and discusses quantum physics and has evidence that “fake it  ‘til you make it” works. She has many exercises you can try and I am sharing one that I have created.

We are going to practice the 'fake til you make it' with todays excersie to prepare you for this epic adventure, if you chose it. I’ve made this suggestion before and it bears repeating-

The exercise I have for you, or as I like to call one of my meditation practices, “Try That On For Size”.If someone, now mind you this someone can be yourself, if someone, has offered you a new exciting opportunity or you have gotten a vision of something you could create,

 take a few minutes right now.

Starting with several bottom of the belly breaths (BoB's),

 as you gaze at the ocean or into your hearts center, ‘try it on for size’.

Pretend you are either doing this fabulous new thing or it has been completed.

What does it look like?

How does it feel?

What are you experiencing?

Try this exercise any time you want to 'experience' a choice you can make.  

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you go about continue to manifest.

#1 You do not need to sacrifice yourself to serve others!

#2 If you have trouble visualizing all your strengths or believing in yourself, listen up, you need to know your true value. Listen up, especially if you have a 1 or a 3 in your numerology because I am calling you out right now!  Get my book “Say YES” so you can learn all of your attributes. Knowing your potential will help you find your passions. Then you can live your purpose!



#3 Still having trouble seeing your full potential yet you are unsatisfied with your current situation? Please, please, please get some assistance: a numerology reading or a life coaching session.

 If  you think fear is an issue keep scrolling.

Here is some inspiration! Take a look-listen to this interview. I know first hand how fear can bite you in the ass. I also know how our minds can fib to us.

The 11, the 2 and the Owl

I'm looking for more insight into what this year has to offer us as we wait and watch. This week owls popped up many times. The super cute owes that are so fuzzy you could die (scene from Despicable Me)! We've had owls come up before and I recall something about 'who'. This gave me pause. To be honest,I am a bit upset that this message is on repeat. I still struggle with who I am. 


Well, maybe struggle isn't the right word. How do I explain? For a long time I have believed there was something I need to do in this life time, something important. After I  started writing my blog in 2014 I thought I was onto something and I could relax. Putting myself out there as a writer AND intuitive made me feel so vulnerable- it had to be the antidote to my angst. Then I completed my first book, that helped some, for a while. 

Yesterday I watched Marie Forleo. (I love her! She is funky, spunky and beautiful!) interview Dani Shapiri. I clicked on it because the title was, "The Writing Process and the Myth of Inspiration." When they started talking about the courage to write I began to cry. You see, I started writing my memoir in September and bawl the entire time I write and edit. This writing exercise has me completely aware of when I sensor myself in my writing and my talking. This awareness is causing me a great deal of pain. 


I need to ask you, "Who are you?"

I need to ask myself, "Who are you?"

And I need to repeat the message from 2 weeks ago, "What are you trying to say?" "What impact would you like to have on the world?" "What legacy do you want to leave?"

Dani Shapiro's advice is to ask yourself if it is true (what you say and what you write) and if it is useful. 

I want to ask you that too. Are you just mindless repeating others? (Parrot message from last week.)  Are you true to yourself? Do you honor yourself, weekly, hourly, daily, hourly?

How do you know if you are not? Remember the post I did on Emotions being gears in a car?  Emotions like: guilt, frustration, irritation, fear and anxiety - these are your clues. If others insight these in you remember they are just reflecting back to you what you would like to change about yourself. 

The irony that I use Numerology to help people find themselves is not lost on me. I bet my entire family is laughing at this. Maybe they are even wondering if I am qualified to help others if I can't even figure it out for myself. 

The 11 energy of 2018 is gunna make us more sensitive (2) and shine a light (Illumination, energy of the 11) on things to help us be true to ourselves (1 energy, twice!). Can you handle this? Are you ready? 

I think I am. And I am grateful, so grateful we can help each other. 

Love and Light,

Mahalo Monday

Using my book as inspiration I have added weightlifting to my physical fitness regimen because I am in a 4 Personal Year.  The effect: it has improved my yoga practice in many ways. 

In this video I am showing off my balance, my strength and my flexibility I am grateful for all the teachers at Big Island Yoga Center and for Trunk Trainers here on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Message from the Green Parrot, Capricorn and numbers 11 and 2

 Large flocks of these (12+) on Walua Trail, Kailua Kona. They make goat sounds and are difficult to spot in the tree.

Large flocks of these (12+) on Walua Trail, Kailua Kona. They make goat sounds and are difficult to spot in the tree.

I am aware that the parrots are now on my walking path, they have been there for over a month now. The other day, I clearly heard goat sounds coming from above...where a goat would not, could not be. It was a flock of birds similar to the photo above.

As a totem, the parrot is about communication skills. Just like the 2, the parrot suggests we listen to our intuition for more open communication.  Ask yourself,  "What are you saying?" Are you parroting back something someone else said or are you expressing your thoughts, your feelings and your desires? 

I did wonder what the message was in the parrots making goat sounds. I know they do this but, it doesn't make it any less funny. We have lots of wild goats in Kona so, it stands to reason that the birds get plenty of chance to hear them. 

Goat? Akin to the Capricorn? I say close enough and since there are 6 planets in Capricorn at the New Moon today, I can make the question more specific:

   What are you trying to say at work? Or in your work?

Tuning into your sensitivity.. aka....your intuition (#2), you will find the answer. Let me remind you the theme this year is "waiting and watching"; this is a good way to allow your intuition. (Last year, a 1 Universal Year, we planted seeds.) This year the Universal Year energy will support you in waiting and watching, because it is a 2: sensitive and receptive energy. We derive the 2 from adding the 11. (2+0+1+8 is an 11, then add again 1+1=2)

As I said last week, we need to be aware of this sensitivity because the energy of eleven is about illumination. The eleven will be shining a light on things that need attention. It is important that we do not get upset or too excited, this could make us jump the gun and make rash decisions. Or not see all the information! Trust that more information, from illumination, will continue to reveal itself. 

Waiting and watching. We can use this to watch what we say...no, not hold back your words but, actually make a mental note of what we are saying. Are you speaking your truth? Are you saying what you want to say? Are you afraid to say what you really want?  

Now to the energy of the goat and the Capricorn. I've seen baby goats walk up a wall that had small groves and I have a Capricorn friend I hike with that challenges me...they are very SURE footed creatures! But if you notice, they take one step at a time. Reminding us: we can climb high, maybe even dangerously high, but it must be one step at a time!  

In conclusion, if we wait and watch for the information we need and express who we really are we can move forward step by step.

If we wait and watch for the information we need and express who we really are we can move forward step by step.
— Tricia Gunberg, Universal Energy of 2018

I'll continue this month with more information on the number 11- it will be with us all year.

Love and Light,
