The Banshee

Faeries, Fantastic Beasts, and Magickal Creatures

When someone mentions a ghost, most of us think of cemeteries, haunted houses, and transparent figures draped in sheets.

Likewise, the word faerie is linked with cute little figures with wings, and merry mischief.

However, mention a Banshee, and people squirm. The Banshee, like a ghost,canrepresent death, but that is not her actual role in folklore, or in our lives.

She can appear transparent, and is the size of a living person. Nevertheless, like her fae counterparts, she is associated with a more magickal Otherworld.

Perhaps she is the link which shows us that the Otherworld is a vast place, inhabited by many kinds of beings, including faeries and ghosts.

The Banshee, in Irish theBean Sidhe(pronounced bann-SHEE), means spirit woman or sometimes a spirit (perhaps a faerie) dressed in white.  She is usually described as a single being, although there are many of them.

According to legend, one Banshee guards each Milesian Irish family.

These are the families whose names start withOorMac,and sometimesFitz,though those prefixes have been dropped, particularly by American families.

There is a Banshee for each branch of these families, and the family Banshee can follow the descendants to America, Australia, or wherever the Irish family travels or emigrates.

The Bansheeprotectsthe family as best she can, perhaps as a forerunner of the Guardian Angel in Christian traditions. However, we are most aware of her before a tragedy that she cannot prevent.

Traditionally, the Banshee appears shortly before a death in her family.

The Banshee is almost always female, and appears filmy in a white, hooded gown. (The exception is in Donegal, Ireland, where she may wear a green robe, or in County Mayo where she usually wears black.)

However, if she is washing a shroud when you see her, she may merely signal a major life-changing event in your future. The way to determine this is to go home and burn a beeswax candle after seeing her; if it burns in the shape of a shroud, her appearance foretells death.

The night before the death, the Banshee will wail piteously in frustration and rage. Her family will always hear her, but many others in the area will, too. For example, Sir Walter Scott referred to the fatal banshis boding scream.

One of the largest reports of this wailing was in 1938, when the Giants Grave in County Limerick, Ireland, was excavated and the bones were moved to a nearby castle. Those who heard the crying throughout central Ireland, said that it sounded as if every Banshee in Ireland was keening.

That wailing of many Banshees is unusual but not unique. There have been other reports of several Banshees manifesting together. When a group of Banshees are seen, it usually forecasts the dramatic illnessand perhaps deathof a major religious or political figure.

In Irish mythological history, the Banshee tradition may link to the fierce Morrighan as the Washer at the Ford, a legend of Cuchulain. In this story, the Morrighan appeared as a young woman who prepared for an upcoming battle by washing the clothingor perhaps the shroudsof those who would fight and lose.

Despite her grim reputation,seeing or hearing a Banshee doesnotcause death.

In fact, the Banshee is traditionally a very kind woman. As poet and historian W. B. Yeats commented, You will with the banshee chat, and will find her good at heart.

I believe that her appearance and wailing before a death are efforts toprotecther family from a death or other tragedy that she foresees.

This is where we see the clearest link to what are popularly called ghosts. In many stories, the spirit appears to warn the living about danger, illness, or death. Gothic novels often feature a ghost whose appearance forecasts death.

Likewise, in the Sherlock Holmes story, theHound of the Baskervilleshowled before a family death.

In real life, my maternal grandmother and her siblings were individually visited by the spectre of their mother, to warn them of her imminent death in a hospital many miles away, and to say good-bye.

This level of concern for the living is consistent with many ghosts, as well as the Banshee.

Whether the Banshee is more correctly a ghost or a faerie is an discussion that may never be resolved. However, the Banshee provides clear evidence that the line between ghosts, spirits, and faeries is vague at best.

I love this article its just what I was looking for. Many thanks and blessings.

I was wondering if banshees had names..

If people suspected they were a cirtain person, because of the fact they used to be women.

Is there evidence of banshees existing?

Olivia, there are some excellent sociological studies of banshees, including Patricia Lysaghts book, The Banshee.

Im sure that they have individual names, but Ive never heard them called anything except by the general term, banshee.

Having heard a banshee, I have no doubt about their existence. It was a chilling experience.

Back in 1999 I lived in a converted pub over the river from Carlisle castle. The house was haunted and the 7 of us living there all experienced various ghostly encounters. One that stood out for me was what I would describe a bachees wail. Myself and boyfriend at the time experienced the wail at night twice, with a few mintues apart. It was definatley a female and a sound very difficult to describe as it was like a silent slow scream and both times she came close to our ears inbetween us, but we were in the dark and neither of us saw her. Do you think this could be what is described as a banchee.? No-one died in either of our families at that time but the house was very haunted so it was possibly related to someone that had died there.

Since Ive heard the banshees cry, I think youmightbe describing it. Its anguished to the point of being almost silent. Its definitely slow.

Remember, the banshee wails because she sees a tragedy that she cant prevent. However, nothing in life is necessarily set in stone, so perhaps someone else was successful at preventing the tragic event the banshee saw.

When I heard the banshee, the event was avoided, too. Im still not surehow,but the most likely outcome did not occur to the relief of everyone involved.

The Banshee doesnt always make a terrible anguished crying/moaning sound . . . it is sometimes a very eerie singing that carries on the breeze . . . its quite unnerving.

Youre right, but to list all the possible words describing individual Banshees keening well, itd be a very long article.

The cry is sometimes described as keening, coming from the Irish wordcaoin,which as my research suggests was originally used to describe the sound and only that sound.

Every Banshee is unique. Each of them will make a different kind of sound but as you said its always unnerving.

John Irving makes allusion to a Banshee in his book A Prayer for Owen Meany. Although this book is a work of fiction, and based on something of a supernatural occurence, the reference to the Banshee by a celebrated author tends to give credibility to the existence of such a being (to me, anyway).

A few nights ago I was also awoken by a banshee,at least I believed it was. At first I thought I had simply screamed in my sleep but then while I was slowly examining the darkness of my room I heard it again. In fact it wasnt just me but everyone sleeping in my house had heard it and came into my room. I suppose in a way it would be more comforting to believe it was a banshee then trying to figure out what else could sound like a woman screaming, dog growling, and owl hooting all at the same time.

What a great description of the very weird sound of a banshee!

Of course, Im sorry you and your family heard it. Just remember: It doesnt always predict an unavoidable tragedy. In my own life, I heard the banshee and changed a few plans remember, it can be something small that simply takes you on a different route, literally or figuratively and a potential tragedy was avoided.

A 1% change in your daily routines means close to a full-circle life change over the course of a year.

In addition, its not just personal tragedy. It could be something local, if you ask people who live in your town if they heard a weird noise recently. People may have heard it at different times, or may not have heard it yet, if its something significant, locally. That could be anything from a factory closing to an elected official facing a significant difficulty to well, it varies from region to region.

Mostly, youve given a great description. I describe mine as a screeching violin combined with the noon whistle at a factory, but I like your description better.

Im trying to find out the name of the OConnor banshee. Ive been researching and have found the OBrien banshee is Eevul, and the ONeill banshee is Maeveen. If anyone has info on the OConnor banshee, Id greatly appreciate it!

Im not sure where you found that information, but there isnt just one banshee for a particular surname. Think of banshees like guardian angels: Every household has one of their own, so its not reasonable for every one of them to have the same name.

In addition, there is no Irish name Eevul (evil) or Maeveen, per se, becausetheres no letter V in the traditional Irish language.

In other words, the person who gave you that information is telling you a tall tale. Youll be well-advised to raise an eyebrow at anything else that person tells you.

Even the OConnor name isnt really OConnor. ItsO ConchobhairorO Conchuir,and its a name used by six distinct family lines. Heres one family history: to learn more about the OConor dynasty in general, Wikipedia will keep you busy for days:

Wow, thanks so much for clarifying and for all the info!

This website was extremely helpful but what i cant rap my head around is, why does she discise herself if she truelly is kind at heart? but other than that i got all of my answers thank you very much

I dont have a problem with her being disguised or wearing a costume. After all, plenty of people enjoy costumes as Halloween, even though theyre kind at heart. So, I dont see anything wrong with her enjoying costumes (or disguises) every day.

There are plenty of traditions where someone kind chose to disguise himself or herself. Fairy tales are full of people like fairy godmothers who pretended to be old and poor, just to see if the girl (or boy) was generous enough to be worthy of reward.

I think this all fits together perfectly, but maybe thats just my outlook.

On a cold night in January of 1978, I was taking a walk to get away from my cruel brothers. As I walked past my house, I heard a woman sobbing with such depth of emotion that I had to stop and listen. It then turned into the sound of a cat calling to be let in. Aweek later,my house burned down.

Yes, I heard the wail like a banshee a few minutes before my mother died..she is mostly irish desent

I believe I have heard it, possibly seen it. Sounds like a mix between a whine from a large dog and a wierd bird like chirp. Are they angels? Or are they demons?

I too have heard a banshee.the evening before a death. It terrified me.and I do not scare easily.

What I do not know is the Irish connection. I was lying beside my boyfriend in the second floor bedroom and heard the banshee very late night just below the bedroom window. I was frozen with fearI wanted to look out the window but could not bring myself to. The very next day my boyfriend wasvtragically killed

Theyre neither angels nor demons. Theyre protective ancestral-type spirits.

Diana, Im not sure if banshees are uniquely Irish. They may have counterparts in other folklore. I hope to research this more completely in the upcoming months.

Also, Im so sorry to hear about your experience and your loss. If a banshee wails, its because she cant prevent the tragedy. And, if she cant well, most humans cant, either.

I was woken up out of a dead sleep the other night by a banshee screams I immediately got a sinking feeling the past when she has visited bad things have happened and deaths. This time five deaths and very bad news with a job and the irs experience is when she comes its deaths and a string of bad news which feels like months

Hey. I was wondering if you could kill a banshee? I havent got time at the moment to read all of it. I skimmed, but anyway-

Can you kill a banshee? Or would it predict its own death?

I saw her last week and Im absolutely terrified. My research has led me to believe I was either visited by a Gaistlig or a Banshee.

She didnt appear to be washing a shroud, she was just there, watching the city from the roof tops, a woman wearing long green robes about 12 foot tall.

She made me feel uncomfortable, I felt as though her intentions werent clear.

Im quite scared now, I had not considered that she could be a banshee.

Dont panic. If you can think of her as a guardian angel kind of figure, that may help.

Honestly, Im amazed that more peoplearentseeing banshees right now. Its a volatile environment, emotionally, and I expect that many people have banshees watching out for their families.

A figure that large, and on top of a building? Id assume shes guarding the community.

Any malicious energy form (or impulse) is likely to sense her and flee. Banshees donotsuffer fools gladly. If she takes action, you may not even hear about it. Shes operating on a different level than, say, the police (or gardai).

In fact, if you think of the police as those who step in as soon as they see something criminal happening, and first responders are there as soon as ithashappened Well, the banshee is sort of a pre-responder. She does what she can to halt anything bad,beforeit happens.

Banshees protect people. Theyre around us much of the time, and especially in green robes shes probably a loving and caring guardian spirit.

Seeing one can be a sign of the times. Maybe shes manifesting as a quiet (but significant) reminder that shes there as a protector.

Or, it could mean that youre especially sensitive to the fae world, so you see banshees.

But, seeing one doesnt mean thatyourein danger. (Its always smart to avoid obviously risky decisions, but beyond that I wouldnt be unusually concerned.)

I believe that banshees are always there, but we either dont see them or dont notice them.

I had an issue today that startled me terribly. My bedroom often gets exstremely hot to I leave the window open during the day. While hanging pinecone bird feeders in my backyard, I thought I could hear talking from my room. At first, I disregarded it as the television, which Id left on. By, the voices seemed to get closer to the window. One voice of deep and scratchy and the other was lighthearted and soft. The deeper voice was asking for something, raising his voice at the other. The lighter voice kept denying, saying that they didnt know and they couldnt have it. Then, the deeper voice threatened the lighter voice, saying that theyd hurt the family. After that, it sounded like something large fell. It startled me so I ran inside to find that my candle on my windowsill had fallen over. Some of my practitioner friends say that it may have been a banshee. If so, is there any way to coax her into revealing herself and speaking to me? Im a fairly new witch so Im still learning.

Alena, my best advice is to thank your banshee for protecting you. Then, let her know that youre open to her friendship, if she would like that. Say this out loud.

Thats all you need to do. Banshees seem to prefer to work in isolation, and Im not sure Ive ever heard of one communicating to her family directly, unless it was an emergency.

So, she may be a spirit/faerie/protector who prefers to be your silent bodyguard and shield.

So a few nights ago, Ive noticed upon gradually coming out of deep sleep that Ive been wailing in my sleep. Its slow, soft and it lingers and will continue until I actually open my eyes/become conscious again.

It started to happen after an encounter with a banshee in a quite a vivid dream I had a while back. She had a tattered dress, and her hair drooped over her face. However, when she flipped it back and revealed her face to me, her face was my face. It was like a reflection of myself just more bruised and beaten and sheI?looked tired. She immediately screamed after revealing herself to me and thats when I woke up, and every time I would try to go back to sleep and envision the hallway in which she lingered, my body would jerk away as if it didnt want me back there. I dont why but the whole thing is just unnerving to me. I was just wondering if this could be anything banshee related? Or if the dream meant anything significant? Or, why I may be wailing like a banshee in my sleep.

Rose, Id treat it like a normal (but weird) dream, unless it keeps happening.

Hello, recently read this. I was wondering if there is somehow a list of families from the ones visited by the banshee. I am of Irish origin and reading about banshees freaked me out. Knowing about which families of Irish origin have a banshee would cure my anxiety.

Patricia, Im not sure why youd be freaked out by having a family banshee.The banshee is a protector,and as far as I know there is noreliablelist of families that have banshees. (There may be a list of families that havereporteda banshee, but that wont be a list ofeverysurname with banshee connections.)

Having a banshee is like Cinderella having a fairy godmother. The banshee is agoodentity. Hearing (or seeing) her is just her effort to alert you to danger.

My family and I (were Norwegians but have distant Celtic ancestry) were camping in the mountains of Beara in Ireland a couple of years ago. In the dark of night my sister went for a solitary walk along this wild road and was startled to hear a high-pitched female cry carried on the wind; she identified it as a psychic impression. She didnt know about the banshee phenomenon until I told her of it later. It wasnt linked to a death, but it eventually turned out that we had been in grave occult danger at the time, a tragedy only barely averted. For this reason I believe the banshees scream, combined with various other ominous signs, presented a warning for us.

As for parallels to banshees in other ethnic traditions Well, as a Nordic I could mention that in the aspect of ancestral guardian spirits, the old Norse tradition believed in female spirits called Disir, and families would have as associates a number of these entities.

Fascinating! Im glad you were able to avoid tragedy.

Also, thanks for the information about the Disir. Im going to look into that, as these kinds of parallels interest me (of course), but they also provide cross-cultural support for the idea that these are universal entities, interpreted (and named) slightly differently by regions.

I saw a banshee standing on my porch this morning as I was driving out for work. I actually stopped to see what my wife wanted thinking it was her, pale white skin and red hair. The image vanished as I started to get out of the car.

I went to work and started to get violent sick, along with the heaviest pit in my stomach. Got worse over the first hour, so I came back home. The closer to home, the better I felt.

I have always paid heed to being a seer because of my mother, paying attention to gut feelings, but today is first time since I was seven or eight that I have seen the White Lady. First time I can remember that she came with such forebodings.

The sound? Deafening silence, nothing making usual morning noises but a whispering song I couldnt quite make out in my ears until I was back in my driveway.

Im 11 and my Great Grandmother is Irish so I worked out Im 8/1 Irish Im I still protected and also I admire you by your amazing mind! I also love mythical creatures!!!

Its interesting. I got a weird dream, its was more like a trance, in which I saw a beautiful redhaired girl with white clothes crying about something. She stopped when I took her in my arms, she really resembles to those descriptions. Nice work by the way, please keep it up.

I was just awoken from a dream where I was running theough a field and had 7 banshee coming towards from different directions. They were silent and looking straight a head and floated past me.

i was wondering if banshees warn you about animal death?

isabel, I think they warn about any tragedy, not just the death of people, but other dramatic changes. Plus that, I think of pets as family, so it makes sense that a banshee would wail before an animal is in danger or approaching the end of his/her time with us.

I heard a banshee in 2015, approximately 1 week before my mother passed. She had been diagnosed with cancer 7 weeks previous. I had been informed earlier that day by a hospice nurse that my mums bloods had deteriorated & that she only had days to live & to let my family know of the situation

That night I was finishing work at around 2 am in Portlaoise , Ireland. when I heard screaming that didnt seem from this world that frightened me like nothing else before. It was coming from behind me but I would not turn around & a cold sweat came over me. Up to that point, I thought it was only a ghost story

After the funeral I told my dad & he said it was The Banshee.

Thanks for posting this, Paul. And, of course, Im so sorry to hear that your mother has passed. Losing a parent is never easy.

Your story has intense credibility. Since Ive heard the Banshee, too, I know the screaming sound you described.

Thanks again for describing your experience. And thank your dad for believing in the Banshee, too. Its not just make-believe, and we rely on the older generation to pass these stories to the rest of us. Having an answer for what you experienced Im sure it was helpful. Itd be all the worse if you were still wondering what it was, and if youd encounter it again, some night around Portlaoise. I think that would be terrifying, and have a far more negative impact on your life.

Im harassed by a banshee. Is there any way to banish her I understand she is here for good I truly do believe that but she is so very scary at times. She comes and goes shes always by my window looking at me. She comes in thru my window puts me in a trance as a beautiful young woman then she screams and changes to an old version with crazy hair. Im so sick of hEr and dreaming of her. Please give me ANYTHING to banish her. Ive asked her to leave Ive even moved houses nothing has worked.

Destiny, what youre describing isnt a banshee. Anything that comes into your home and puts you in a trance, and then transforms to terrify you thats not a faerie or a ghost or anything like one. Its something else, and the first option is to rule out a spirit (spiritual) cause. My advice is: go to the nearest mainstream church and talk with a minister or priest whos sympathetic. After all, church ministers are trained in spiritual matters, and they can help you rule out at leastsomekinds of entities. And, most churches provide free counselling like this.

If they cant help you, theyll know about other resources that could provide relief.

Previous Job Meaning?

I want to ask about the meaning of previous. I read somewhere that previousmeans one before the current one. Is it always like that?

For example right now Im working in Company D. Previously, I worked in Company A, B, and C. Can I say my previous work required me to stay in the office until 9 pm and actually Im referring to company B? if not, waht should I say?

Say One of my previous jobs… that way it is clear that you are talking about a series of prior jobs. Normally, if you just say my previous job, you meant the one you just had.

Numerology 222 Meaning Seeing 222 Everywhe?

Numerology 222 Meaning: Seeing 222 Everywhere?

Numerology 333 Meaning: Seeing The Number 333?

Numerology 444 Meaning: Do You Keep Seeing 444?

As you go about your day, have you been seeing the number 222 everywhere? You could be noticing the number on the clock a lot, or see it printed on receipts. You might notice it in area codes or on prices. No matter where youre seeing 222, the important thing is that youre seeing it. Because if you are, that means the universe istrying to tell you something.

Numerology as we know it today traces its roots back to the Greek mathematician Pythagoras, who lived around 500 B.C. The basic idea is that each number is related to a cosmic vibration. When you know how to interpret themeaning of numbers, you can read the messages the universe is trying to send you.

One use of numerology is to determine your Life Path Number. Your Life Path Number reflects specific traits and abilities, and can help you find your true way in life.Finding your Life Path Number is pretty easy, and involves your birthday.

Another use of numerology is number interpretation. This is where you see a number, usually quite often, over about a week or more. These numbers can be anything, but the most meaningful numbers are usually three or four digits. You can see these numbers anywhere, really. Theyre not usually something you seek out, but instead something youll notice after a few days.

The number 222 is a sign that taking a forward action will result in something positive. Also, you should this action should involve other people. Some common ways to interpret 222 include:

Continue along with your current line of thought or course of action

Youre headed in the right direction

Your new/current intention is aligned with your highest path and purpose

Another key aspect of the number 222 meaning is the involvement of other people. The relationships can be between friends, family, a partner, co-workers or even the public at large. Usually youll be doing something to bring people together; solutions involving compromise, diplomacy and balance should be found.

How this applies to your life depends on your specific situation. There might be a work situation where you need to get everyone on the same page. There might be an issue involving an on-going disagreement with an intimate partner. Whatever the situation, the number 222 is telling you to take the initiative and handle the problem, in a way which considers the feelings and wishes of everyone involved.

First, be grateful. The universe is sending you a clear signal. Try to think of any situation where your progress is being blocked due to some issue between you and someone else.The universe doesnt usually send out a signal unless theres a problem, so it should be clear to you what the signal is meant for.

Now, youll have to approach the situation in a calm, creative, diplomatic way. Try to understand the other partys needs and concerns. You might be surprised this approach will tend to solve most problems, especially if youve been seeing 222 everywhere. The universe is aligned towards you when you take this type of action.

Of course, the number 222 isnt just about you. Its about you and others, working together to move forward. With 222, theres nothing you cant do!

At the end of the night we were talking about how grateful we were to have finally seen each other again and that regardless of what ever separates us, we will always manage to reach an understanding. Without looking at the time, I mentioned how recently Id been seeing the repetitive numbers and was curious if she had ever experienced the same. At that moment we both looked at the clock aspeed it turned 2:22! I got chills, what awesome way to end the day. So cool. Weve always known the significance we hold in each others lives, but is nice knowing the universe agrees .

By 3 other occasions, Jesus will say rather It is Me, also translated in the Greek ego eimi (Jn 4,26 and 6,20 and 18,5-6). Those two mentions of the Christ are therefore equivalent: I Am = It is Me. Also in the conversation of Vassula with Jesus, to verify the presence of This one, Vassula questions Him by saying Jesus?, and Him to reply always by the affirmation I Am instead of It is me, which is similar.

In the Gospel of saint John, by 7 times it is referred to the testimony of John the Baptist. The Gospel of saint John brings back also seven miracles of Jesus. The eighth, the miraculous fishing of chapter 21, has been added to the first writing. This same Gospel enumerates 7 appearances of Jesus Christ with his apostles and disciples after his resurrection. The word dreams is used 7 times in the NT. The name of Solomon is used 7 times in the Song of Songs book (Sg), as well as the words Girls of Jerusalem, Lebanon and love.

There are seven beatitudes that are proclaimed in the Revelation: 1,3; 14,13; 16,15; 19,9; 20,6; 22,7; 22,14;

I was born on the 1st of the 7th month 1979. My birth name adds up to seven, and the owl has always been my spiritual animal and also represents the number seven. And if you ask me; Seven stands for death(spiritual and actual), for change and rebirth, for magic, union of the other numbers into one, intuitive knowledge etc.

And for those that think that number seven appears in their life because they are quite special like that., yall be left disappointed sooner or later, I promise 😉

I have always wondered what the 4 – 7s in my social security number might mean? is there any relevance to this that you may know?

RE: I have 4 – 7s in my social security number, What would this mean?

Wow, I have four sevens in my SSN too!

I was born on the seventh month on the seventh day. Pretty cool. When I was six, I would count towards my birthday and I think that was the time I realized how special 7 is to me. I realized one day that there were 7 days til my 7th birthday on the 7th year (it was 2007) of the 7th day on Saturday (which a lot of people believe that Saturday is the 7th day of the week. Look it up) til my 7th birthday.

Ever since then, 7s pop up EVERYWHERE. Even my friends are always pointing it out and noticing it when they are around me. Like one time, I was a library with my two friends and I grabbed a book out randomly and it was a star information book. I joked around and told them, Im going to close my eyes and flip through this book for 7 seconds and that star sign will be mine.

The star sign it landed on was Cancer.

Thats my sign, its partly for the 7th month of the year.

I almost convinced myself that these recurring 7s were just my brain sorting through billions of info and…more…

No. I also believe you are blessed. I too recently discovered number 7 has a powerful meaning. My son was sick for months. He was always on the Seventh floor. Came home for the first time after 7 months!!! Recently, I discovered that Seths timeline of procedures… the dates always was link with our families birth dates.

Re: Romans 1:20 – Gods divine nature clearly seen in creation. 7 continents, 7 Seas, 7 colors in the rainbow, 7 primary notes in music, 7 forms of art, 7 measurements for all matter, 7 basic groups of living beings, and last, time and space- 7 days in a week, and 7 layers of atmosphere: exosphere, thermosphere, mesosphere, stratosphere, troposphere, space, and heaven.

Backwards 7 with 3rd eye activated look sun

Need deep answer not fake truth I came to far to higher level of meditation 7-7-7 died 7times ,came back to life 7timespredicted world end end of times of our planet for 7

Today just few minutes ago I meditated while 3rd meditation seen backwards 7thru my 3rd eye all my chakras are in line and fully functional Ive been to the divine everything that Im telling you is the truth honesty loyalty peace happiness love care equality

RE: Backwards 7 with 3rd eye activated look sun

Hi, I have always wondered why the number 7 has always been in my life. Is it the Universe sending me a message or have I left a message for myself from a previous life??

I was born on the 7th day of September (originally the 7th month – Sept is the french for 7)on a sunday morning (7th day of the week).

I am the 7th daughter going both ways in the family (13 girls – 6 younger than me and 6 older than me).

I have moved house several times during my adult life. All the homes I have lived in were numbered either 7 or a multiple of 7. I now live in number 14.

My marriage lasted 14 (2×7) years. It took another 7 years before the divorce was finalised.

There have been many more incidents of the number 7 turning up in my life.

My cars licence plate starts with the number 7.

Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this 7 that I have questioned most of my life??

Im bombarded with 7s lately…I have done enough research and I still not sure if it is good or bad entirely but Im slightly leaning towards it been a Number of Satan after reading this site and comments…

If you read the comments…nothing has come out of it…Number 7 seems to create more drama in ones life through co-incidences…

I dont think god would play around our life with Code, Magic and Mystery at the same time keep us guessing as to the significance of 7 while making our lives miserable…also, 7 seems to give HOPE a lot…which is clearly a Satans habit…Hope is Satanic by default.

If you are Hoping that 7 is good or Confused…I dont think its from God.777by Anonymous – 3/17/1312:14 PMI

is a relation between objects in which one object designates, or acts as a means by which to connect to or link to, another object. The first object in this relation is said tofor the second object. The second object, the one to which the first object refers, is called theof the first object. A name is usually aphraseor expression, or some othersymbolic representation. Its referent may be anything a material object, a person, an event, an activity, or an abstract concept.

References can take on many forms, including: a thought, a sensory perception that isaudibleonomatopoeia),visual(text),olfactory, or tactile,emotional state, relationship with other,[1]spacetimecoordinate,symbolicoralpha-numeric, a physical object or an energy projection. In some cases, methods are used that intentionally hide the reference from some observers, as incryptography.

References feature in many spheres of human activity and knowledge, and the term adopts shades of meaning particular to the contexts in which it is used. Some of them are described in the sections below.

The wordreferenceis derived fromMiddle Englishreferren, fromMiddle Frenchrfrer, fromLatinreferre, to carry back, formed from theprefixre- andferre, to bear.[2]A number of words derive from the same root, includingrefer,referee,referential,referent,referendum.

The verbrefer (to)and its derivatives may carry the sense of link to or connect to, as in the meanings ofreferencedescribed in this article. Another sense is consult; this is reflected in such expressions asreference workreference deskjob reference, etc.

Insemantics, reference is generally construed as the relationships betweennounsorpronounsand objects that are named by them. Hence, thewordJohn refers to the person John. The word it refers to some previously specified object. The object referred to is called thereferentof the word.[3]Sometimes the word-object relation is calleddenotation; the word denotes the object. The converse relation, the relation from object to word, is calledexemplification; the object exemplifies what the word denotes. In syntactic analysis, if a word refers to a previous word, the previous word is called theantecedent.

Gottlob Fregeargued that reference cannot be treated as identical withmeaningHesperus(an ancient Greek name for the evening star) andPhosphorus(an ancient Greek name for the morning star) both refer toVenus, but the astronomical fact that Hesperus is Phosphorus can still be informative, even if the meanings of Hesperus and Phosphorus are already known. This problem led Frege to distinguish between thesense and referenceof a word. Some cases seem to be too complicated to be classified within this framework; the acceptance of the notion ofsecondary referencemay be necessary to fill the gap. See alsoOpaque context.

The very concept of thelinguistic signis the combination of content and expression, the former of which may refer entities in the world or refer more abstract concepts, e.g. thought. Certain parts of speech exist only to express reference, namelyanaphorasuch aspronouns. The subset of reflexives expresses co-reference of two participants in a sentence. These could be theagent(actor) and patient (acted on), as in The man washed himself, the theme and recipient, as in I showed Mary to herself, or various other possible combinations.

Incomputer sciencereferencesaredata typesthat refer to an object elsewhere in memory and are used to construct a wide variety ofdata structures, such aslinked lists. Generally, a reference is a value that enables a program to directly access the particular data item. Mostprogramming languagessupport some form of reference. For the specific type of reference used in theC++language, seereference (C++).

The notion of reference is also important in relationaldatabase theory; seereferential integrity.

References to many types of printed matter may come in an electronic or machine-readable form. For books, there exists theISBNand for journal articles, theDigital object identifier (DOI)is gaining relevance. Information on theInternetmay be referred to by aUniform Resource Identifier (URI).

In terms of mental processing, aself-referenceis used in psychology to establish identification with a mental state during self-analysis. This seeks to allow the individual to develop own frames of reference in a greater state of immediate awareness. However, it can also lead to circular reasoning, preventing evolution of thought.[4]

According to Perceptual Control Theory (PCT), a reference condition is the state toward which a control systems output tends to alter a controlled quantity. The main proposition is that All behavior is oriented all of the time around the control of certain quantities with respect to specific reference conditions.[5]

In academics and scholarship, an author-title-date information inbibliographiesandfootnotes, specifying complete works of other people. Copying of material by another author without proper citation or without required permissions isplagiarism.

Keeping adiaryallows an individual to use references for personal organization, whether or not anyone else understands the systems of reference used. However, scholars have studied methods of reference because of their key role in communication and co-operation betweendifferentpeople, and also because of misunderstandings that can arise. Modern academic study of reference has been developing since the 19th century.[6]

In scholarship, a reference may be acitationof a text that has been used in the creation of a piece of work such as an essay, report, or oration. Its primary purpose is to allow people who read such work to examine the authors sources, either forvalidityor to learn more about the subject. Such items are often listed at the end of an article or book in a section markedBibliographyor References. A bibliographical section often contains works not cited by the author, but used as background reading or listed as potentially useful to the reader. A reference section contains only those works cited by the author(s) in the main text.

Inpatentlaw, a reference is a document that can be used to show the state of knowledge at a given time and that therefore may make aoranticipated. Examples of references are patents of any country, magazine articles,Ph.D.theses that are indexed and thus accessible to those interested in finding information about the subject matter, and to some extent Internet material that is similarly accessible.

Inart, a reference is an item from which a work is based. This may include:

Another example of reference issamplesof various musical works being incorporated into a new one.
