The Number 4 path of development empowers us to persevere, to give consistent attention and effort all the way through to the completion of a task, to manifest an intention, and to master a skill or a way of being.

LIFE BLESSING - Life purpose 4

The four equal sides of a square symbolize the Number 4 and can represent aspects of life that give us a sense of stability. These aspects are some of the things that remain constant and that we can depend on, including: the four seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter), the cardinal directions (east, south, west, north), the four common cycles of human life (birth, child, adult, death), and the four primary elements (earth, air, fire, water). The square is a building block that allows us to create a solid foundation on which to stand.
