About Alpha Life Trends

Alpha Life Trends brings the connection of astrology and numerology into to an interwoven understanding of our life. Correlating the events on the material level with our spiritual purpose, we bring a higher understanding of the spiritual purpose to these events. Alpha Life Trends provides a way to map our Life Journey with understanding and awareness of our spiritual purpose. We can begin to know and understand our Life Journey, bringing clarity, awareness, wisdom and inner peace to all events, our challenges and our successes. 

Astrology is the study of the planets, stars and constellations. Knowing that the material plane is a manifestation of the spiritual world, we can derive useful information to help us understand the Divine seasons of life’s events. Numerology is the study of our own personal timing within the Divine seasons of events. Through this understanding of the all-pervading presence of the Divine Oneness guiding the stars and our life, we can unravel the true purpose of our life. In our search for God within our life and the world around us, we can see that we fit into a Divine Plan and we begin to also see that we are given situations and circumstances through our life to respond with either positive or negative reactions. The situations may be given to us, but we are the ones to choose our response. That is our free will choice. These choices determine the events of our future days.

If we respond to life with “lack of understanding”, then we have made an appointment for sometime in the future to try again to “understand.” Some choose to understand and grow, while others act out of fear, fail to understand and blame others for the unhappiness in their life. With these reactions to life’s opportunities, there isn’t much hope of growing beyond the present consciousness and therefore life brings to us more of the same until our reactions to life are coupled with “understanding”. We always have the choice in front of us, with each situation, to grow, understand and love. 

Astrology and numerology can help us understand the Divine opportunities in our life so we can grow this Divine consciousness. Each day we are given many situations and circumstances that have within them the gift of growth, understanding and love. It is our task to respond and bring forth these qualities to allow God within to be expressed in our everyday life. Our response to challenges are the qualities that we bring forward to fill up the holes and empty parts of our life. The glance from the end of our life brings our view to see the sparkling diamonds of Divine qualities brimming out of the holes of our challenges OR qualities of blame and anger fill the pot holes of challenges to show our lack of understanding. Situations are given to us, but our choice of response is our free will. Alpha Life Trends opens the door for greater understanding of events in our Life and the continual presence of our Divine-oriented choices.
