Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – A Time to be Grateful for friends and collaborators – #Numerology – Annette Rochelle Aben with your Universal Number for December.


How very fitting that today as North America celebrates Thanksgiving with their family and friends that we have a post from the lovely Annette Rochelle Aben. Since we are nearly at the end of November, it is an opportunity to share Annette’s numerology column and your Universal Energies for December.

But before we do that… I would like to say my thank you to Annette, not just for creating this fascinating post each month, introducing us to numerology and how it impacts our lives, but also for all her support over the last five years.

Annette is one of those people who everyone adores. She offers such motivation with her daily messages and daily visits to so many of our blogs. She generously shares the posts on her social media but is modesty itself when it comes to her own talent and work.

As an experienced broadcaster it is a pleasure to be interviewed on her podcast The Magic Happens and if you head over you will find some of your favourite fellow writers on the playlist. Ritu Bhathal, Craig Boyack, Linda Bradley, Robbie Cheadle, Eloise de Sousa, Dorinda Duclos... the list is endless.

All authors who have benefited from Annette’s support and kindness.

An accomplished poet, Annette has published seversal collections and in particular I have enjoyed her photography combined with Haiku. Such a lovely way with words.

For those of you who have been looking forward to her updates on her health this year on Facebook, I know you will be as pleased as I am at her improvement after what has been a very challenging year. So brave and unassuming, and still kindness itself to everyone around her on and offline. Thankfully on the road to recovery and wishing her a bright and exciting 2020.

Now time to discover the impact of December’s Universal Energy on your own life..

To everyone who had read this monthly series. To everyone who has shared its contents. To Sally Cronin for offering me a platform. May December be a blessing for all. Remember, direct your Numerology questions to me at innerchildart (at) yahoo (dot) com.

If you told me we would be here in December so soon, I would have glanced askance in your general direction. Still, here we are and that means we have come to the end of our monthly series on Numerology featured all this year on Sally Cronin’s Smorgasbord Blog Magazine.

Allow me to take this time to thank my generous hostess for this opportunity. I am grateful to have had this platform and encourage the rest of you to take Sally up on her kind offers to host you and your messages!

During this year we have looked at UNIVERSAL ENERGY, which adds an extra dimension to the PERSONAL ENERGY of our days, months and years. We find the UNIVERSAL ENERGY by adding up the numbers of the current year.

Using 2019 as the example, here is what we do. 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 12. Then we add the 1 + 2 together to bring that number down to the smallest number between 1 & 9 and we arrive at 3. 3 is the UNIVERSAL ENERGY that we attach to the energy explanation of every month’s PERSONAL ENERGY.

You got this and I am so proud!

This being the case, let’s take the PERSONAL ENERGY of December, which is 1 + 2 = 3 and add it to the UNIVERSAL ENERGY of this current year, another 3 and we end up with a 6 for December of this year. This means that while we will feel the PERSONAL ENERGY of the December 3 more, there will always be the underlying UNIVERSAL ENERGY of the 6 lingering.

Lucy, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do

Okay, the 3 gives us the hurly-burly of a lot going on and most of it can be a lot of fun. While it can feel as though we are being pulled in 3 different directions at the same time, it can also feel as though it is all coming together. That sensation comes when we take a moment to remember to stay IN the present moment. Now, the 6 adds the energy of responsibility factor. Do it, get it right and make it happen. If we aren’t in the present moment, this can create pressure. However, if we are in sync, we feel the thrill of accomplishment.

What does this mean, what does this mean?

It basically means that we have every opportunity to enjoy our December and to be enchanted as well as mesmerized by the goings-on. As this is the last month of the year, why not wrap it up in fine fashion? Of course, the energy specific to you would need to be determined separately and you can always contact me for that. Reasonable rates, I assure you.

Here is my email, innerchildart (at) yahoo (dot) com. Might I suggest that now would be a grand time to look into your energy for 2020. Get yourself set for the roaring twenties!

Happy Holy Days and Happy New Year. It is always my pleasure to serve.

About Think Tanka

Throughout time, the poet has used words to convey feelings, share ideas and unite the reader with their vision. Think Tanka uses the traditional structure of Japanese lyric poetry to unite the reader to the vision of the poet. if you can “see” what she is trying to “say” in every grouping of 31 syllables, then she has done her job. Think Tanka is a book for those who appreciate poetry, those who enjoy short reads, people who like to smile and those who know what it is like to be lost in a world of imagination. Whether you are buying this book for yourself or someone else, you’ll want to make sure you get an extra copy so you’ll have one on hand to share.

One of the recent reviews for Think Tanka

At the beginning of this beautiful little book, the author writes, “Tanka means short song.” That describes this book completely. Not only is it in alphabetical order according to topic titles, but it provides a daily reference for inspiration, a thought for the day, or a chuckle. The author touches on every topic from the deepest spiritual aspect of “Quiet & Space,” to the frolicking “Dance Machine.” There is a large dose of magic sprinkled throughout this book of Tanka. There is homage to our beautiful panet, Mother Earth and even a nod to our traditions. If you are looking for a book to make your day sparkle, you will enjoy the amazing Tanka from Annette Rochelle Aben!

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – #Numerology with Annette Rochelle Aben – Your Universal Energy for November.


Well, we are ten months into this Numerology thing. Do you think you have it mastered? All you need is a little more information compliments of the only month that IS a master.

Welcome to the 11th month, November!

Grab a cuppa and let’s do this…

As we have learned all year long, in NUMEROLOGY, ALL numbers are added down to the smallest number between 1 and 9. Then the vibrations of those numbers are interpreted to provide the PERSONAL ENERGY and UNIVERSAL ENERGY of whom or whatever. For instance, 15 breaks down as 1 + 5 = 6.

Sharp left turn here…

Of course, this is an exception to the rule and that exception is a MASTER NUMBER.

MASTER NUMBERS have a unique personality that identifies them on sight. They are the duplicate numbers! 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88 and 99 which are all MASTER NUMBERS.

Here we are dealing with the 11 of November. And while we will reduce it to a 2 for the sake of determining the PERSONAL and UNIVERSAL ENERGIES, it is always written as 11/2.

That way we have our reduced number while remembering the additional power of a MASTER NUMBER.

Imagine having the birthday, 11/11…

So, 2019 is a 3 UNIVERSAL ENERGY and we take that energy of staying in the present moment, integration and stating focused and add it to NOVEMBER’S 11/2 and it looks like this. 2 + 3 = 5. What? Where does the 11 go? We will use it for adding bling to the interpretation but not for determining the actual PERSONAL or UNIVERSAL ENERGIES.

The 2, is a balancing act of PERSONAL ENERGY for November. A time of keeping our lives in the balance, especially where our emotions are concerned. Now, the 5 from adding the 2 to the current year’s PERSONAL ENERGY, gives us a UNIVERSAL ENERGY of change, magic, and miracles. There are times when trying to balance all the changing going on around us without breaking down emotionally can be challenging.

 Ah-ha! Enter the MASTER…

Now, we want the power of that 11 to take center stage. We do this by remembering we are spiritual beings having a physical experience and as such, we always have a power, higher than ourselves working with us side by side. We toss the stress our to the Universe and allow the guidance to light our path. Some say it’s more powerful to have two 1’s side by side. Others believe it’s a more enlightening time. You’ll have your own, unique experience, so enjoy it!

So, November is really a superhero…

Yes, yes, it is a superhero. People find strength they never knew they had and time they were sure didn’t exist. It is as though we have struggled through the shift from summer into autumn yet here is the comfort of November to that we can bring ourselves into balance in the highest of fashions.

Giving thanks…

To everyone who had read this monthly series. To everyone who has shared its contents. To Sally Cronin for offering me a platform. May November be a blessing for all.  Remember, direct your Numerology questions to me at innerchildart (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Your Universal Energy for October with Annette Rochelle Aben.


October! Can you hardly believe that we have gotten to the final quarter of 2019 without killing anyone?

What do you mean, speak for yourself?

The whole basis of Numerology, is to use the numbers 1-9 to define the type of Personal Energy we are experiencing daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. So far, it’s been easy because our months have had numbers between 1 and 9. Now, we complete the calendar year with 3 months that we have to add numbers together to reach a number between 1 and 9. But it’s not quite that simple.

You knew I was going to throw a curve ball at this point, didn’t you!

We will begin where we are, with October. October, being the 10th month of the year, needs to be reduced by adding the 1 and the 0 together, which gives us a 1. Now, just because January lays claim to the number one legitimately, doesn’t mean we can assume that October’s 1 has the same definition. We shall also use the power of the 10 along with that of the 1, thereby giving us some special energy.

I always knew you were special.

A 10 carries the energy of TRANSFORMATION. And not just any old TRANSFORMATION but GRAND TRANSFORMATION. This translates to October being able to help us with things turning around more than any other month. Wee changes? Not this month! Expect the delightfully unexpected. Looking for a few minor adjustments to the home, wardrobe, personality or job? Tut, tut, tut! Behold the magnificent to manifest out of the seemingly insignificant.

Ooh, but what about the Universal Energy of October?

I am glad you asked. Here is where the number 1 comes into play (just like in January) and when we add that to the 3 of 2019, we arrive at a 4 as the Universal Energy of October. This number represents the physical world, stability and all tangible things in general. That being said, look forward to some pretty cool transformations in your physical world this month. For many of us, this will be exactly what the Doctor ordered. After months of things seeming to drag, watch for some spectacular closure!

No 3-D glasses required.

As always, you will want to make sure to discern your own Personal Energy, in order to maximize that which is already in place for any month. I can help you do that. Contact me at innerchildart (at) yahoo. (dot) com and let’s set you up proper for the rest of this year and all of next year. Never too early to get this party started.

Thank you to Sally Cronin for allowing me to be a part of her awesome blog magazine. It has been my extreme pleasure to share my Numerology knowledge with everyone and to receive that terrific feedback. Cheers!

Always delighted to have Annette over to give us some direction for the coming month.. I wish our weather forecasts were so accurate…

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – #Numerology – Your Universal Energy for August by Annette Rochelle Aben


Gotta love August! Well, may be not but it sounds so regal, doesn’t it? Guess it depends on the way one pronounces the word, August.

Okay, August rocks because being the eighth month of the year, it is packed with energy. Not only the energy of the season but the Numerology Energy of the 8 as well. 8 calls to us to go for the gold, reach for all the brass rings and keep looking to and for the next opportunity. As this is the Personal Energy of this month, it holds a lot of weight regardless of where you are with Universal Energy or Personal Energy.

Do you want to know how this works?

The Universal Energy we are dealing with is that of 2019. In Numerology, we add each number together and continue adding until we end up with a number between 1 and 9. So, 2019 adds up to a 3. This means that 2019’s energy is one of have fun, lighten up and live for the moment. This is what the Universe is doing for an entire year, and we will see a shift every day and each month. Our Personal Energy will be affected by this (you can always contact me to work with you on that) and in this column, we are dealing with the monthly shift as combined with the Universal Energy.

Watch, as my fingers never leave my hands…

Using the 8 energy of August, we are going to add that ever present 3 of the current year to arrive at a 2. Because 8 + 3 = 11, then we add the 11 together as 1 + 1 = 2! Basically, even though the Personal Energy of August is an 8, here in 2019, it packs the wallop of a 2 Universal Energy. Believe it or not, these two energies are not the best bedfellows.

Oh no, does this mean we are doomed?

Heck no! Yes, the energy of an 8 is action packed while the 2 lends a twist of balance to the picture. As we move forward with our ideas, hopes and dreams, the 2 calls us to slow down a bit to make sure we are emotionally balanced. The result can make it seem like things aren’t happening in a time frame most pleasing. Tut, tut, tut! Everything happens in the proper time frame. So, keep moving forward and make one of those goals, to keep yourself balanced within.

Come on, you can do this!

Enjoy your month of go-go-go with your actions and embrace the emotional balance that allows you to enjoy the entire experience.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to Sally Cronin for the opportunity to share what I know about Numerology with you in this blog magazine. I certainly encourage you to FOLLOW this blog and meet the others who have been invited to contribute.

If you are curious as to how YOU would personally handle this energy, reach out, reach out and contact me! Because not only does energy change with every day, every month and every year but we are born with OUR OWN ENERGY. How the energies of the days, months and years specifically affects us individually, requires working with our personal numbers.

One of the recent reviews for Think Tanka

Annette Rochelle Aben is a poet with a huge heart who finds joy and pleasure in everything around her. She does a lovely job of conveying her enjoyment of life to readers through her poetry which provides uplifting messages, curious insights and, often, a jolly good laugh. All of the author’s poems have one thing in common, they all inspire happiness in the reader.

There are also some thoughts that quite shake your views of the world. Once such poem is Afraid & Grave:
Anxious to be liked
She just had to be herself
Which was not subtle
So, she numbered her feathers
And stepped out wearing glitter

One of the poems I thought was the prettiest in the collection was Autumn Leaves:
Walking through fall’s world
Appreciating colors
Crunching foliage
Gold sounds a lot like orange
Crimson feels warm like the sun

Lastly, I am sharing my overall favourite poem in this collection called simply Eyes & Shelter
Sweet sheltering heart
Defies logic’s gravity
Allow compassion to reign
By way of eternal love
