(Written September 2012) After traveling extensively around the world since 1998, this has been a very different kind of year for Jeanne and me. We’ve only been out of the country once this year, and that was to be in Wasserkoog, Germany with the Ark Gathering in late January and early February. It has given us a chance to catch our breaths, with our first grandchild, and write.
For Jeanne, it has been a year to finish a book about coming to terms with experiences in Bosnia. It is called Grace,and will be out in both digital and print-on-demand formats very soon.
For me, while still in Germany at Sophia’s home after the Ark Gathering, I began to give shape to an introductory book on my new system of Mystical Numerology.
I’ve titled it, Mystical Numerology: The Creative Power of Sounds and Numbers.
It covers the basics of the system, and this is quite a lot. It includes how to do readings based on just the vowel sounds of your name, how to find your Purpose, Path, Drive and Opportunity numbers, new definitions for the numbers based on their positions on the Medicine Wheel, in addition to a new 13-month calendar. Like I said, it is the basics, but it still provides a tremendous amount of new information. Sue Mehrtens, Founder and President of the Jungian Center for Spiritual Sciences in Vermont, was an early reader of the manuscript. Here is what she has to say about the book:
“Mystical Numerology is a practical introduction to a new science of numbers which opens up new vistas and avenues of self-exploration and growth for both the beginner and the seasoned numerologist. In its integration of ancient wisdom traditions from many cultures with both number symbolism and sound, Mystical Numerology is unique in the field of numerology and goes far beyond the usual books to offer insights that resonate with the soul. Reflecting thousands of hours of research and application of the theory to the lives of real people, Pehrson’s pioneering tour de force offers a valuable way for us to access the power of numbers to help guide us through this transitional time. In its articulation of a new 13-month calendar, it can help shift global culture into a new, more viable paradigm. This is a work not just to be read but to be mined, applied to daily living, and made a companion on life’s journey.”
The manuscript is at the publisher now, ready to begin the editing process. It should be out in the next couple of months – hopefully by early November.
When it comes out, if you are at all interested in numerology, I encourage each of you to give it a read.
