People around the world are familiar with the symbolic meaning behind the infamous number 666, which is rather cryptically referred to as the “number of the beast” in the New Testament, and in recent times has become known as the number of the Antichrist. The number 666 is directly associated with the devil, Satan, and at the same time with death. The filmmakers even graphically revealed this representation in the movie “The Omen.” The number 666 has gotten a bad reputation over the centuries due to its mention in the Biblical Book of Revelations as the ‘Number of the Beast.’ There is no explanation ever given in the Bible for why this number is associated with the Devil, the Apocalypse, and the Anti-Christ.
The spiritual meaning behind the number 666:
There are few numbers that are as misunderstood as the number 666. The association of this number with the embodiment of evil in the world is far from what Numerology has to say about it. In Numerology, when we want to find the hidden meaning of a multi-digit number, we reduce it to the vibration essence of a single digit by adding all of the individual digits up until we have only a single digit:
6 + 6 + 6 = 18; 1 + 8 = 9
This means that the vibration or energetic essence of 666 is 9. The number 9 is associated with tolerance, philanthropy, compassion, and idealism, all values that we would generally associate with the home and the hearth, where we all feel most loved and cared for. From here, when you see number 666 appear in your experience, again and again, please do not see it as an ill-omen or the harbinger of bad news. The vibration essence of 666 is compassion, tolerance, idealism, and philanthropy. Therefore, seeing 666 frequently appearing in your experience could be interpreted as a reminder from your innermost self, the angels, or source energy that you would benefit from being a bit more compassionate or tolerant in whatever situation you are in.
