444 Meaning Universal Frequency Vibration

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on Reddit

444 Meaning Universal Frequency Vibration 444 The spiritual meaning of 4:44 is one of many repetitive numbers designed to get your attention and serve as a
directional message from the universal mind.

The universe will usually send you the number 444 when you feel unsure or conflicted. The Universe will use various signs and/or symbols to communicate with you: Animals, street lights going off or on, finding dimes or quarters, repetative verbal messages …..

444 carries a powerful message from the universe: It means your guides are by your side to protect and guide you and offer the very best for you.


When the universe is trying to communicate with you, you will see a specific number in a variety of places, usually for at least a few days. At first, it might seem coincidental; after a while, the number vibration will be impossible to ignore.

444 meaning itself refers to an angelic Frquency surrounding you and taking comfort in the protection afforded you from the angels. Your angels are always near you, all you have to do is reach out to them via thought or silent prayer. You just may not get the answer in the form you expect nor when you expect it, but it will always come on time

Numbers (signs/symbols) are a part of the universal language | Ancient Knowledge, Consciousness, Sacred Geometry.
Symbolism, is a universal language; whereby all beings can communicate.

Seeing: 000, 111, 11:11, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, 999 and 9:11, What Repeating Numbers Are Telling You (TBC)

Free Market Cryptocurrencies -Jeff Berwick

What is cryptocurrency? Cryptocurrency is a form of digital money that is designed to be secure and, in many cases, anonymous.

It is a currency associated with the internet that uses cryptography, the process of converting legible information into an almost uncrackable code, to track purchases and transfers.

Cryptography was born out of the need for secure communication in the Second World War. It has evolved in the digital era with elements of mathematical theory and computer science to become a way to secure communications, information and money online.

FLEETWOOD MAC THE FIRST BAND
TO BE HONORED AS

2018 GRAMMYS MUSICARES PERSON OF THE YEAR
AT
28TH ANNUAL TRIBUTE

FLEETWOOD MAC TO BE HONORED AS 2018 MUSICARES PERSON OF THE YEAR

FLEETWOOD MAC TO BE HONORED AS 2018 MUSICARES PERSON OF THE YEAR

Two-time GRAMMY winners Fleetwood Mac will be honored at the 2018 MusiCares® Person of the Year tribute on Friday, Jan. 26th, 2018, it was announced today by Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the MusiCares Foundation® and the Recording Academy. Proceeds from the 28th annual benefit gala—to be held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City during GRAMMY® Week two nights prior to the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards®—will provide essential support for MusiCares (www.musicares.org), which ensures music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical, and personal need. The evening’s tribute chairs are Shelli and Irving Azoff, Dorothy and Martin Bandier, Kristin and James Dolan, and Anna Chapman and Ronald Perelman.

Fleetwood Mac are being honored as the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year in recognition of their significant creative accomplishments and their longtime support of a number of charitable causes, including MusiCares, the premier safety net of critical resources for the music industry.

“Our 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute is a celebration of firsts—the first time our annual signature gala will be held in New York City in 15 years, and the first time in the benefit’s history that we will honor a band,” said Portnow. “This excitement is only matched by the genuine thrill and privilege of paying tribute to Fleetwood Mac, a legendary and influential group of artists whose music has provided the soundtrack for music lovers around the world.”

“It’s a tremendous honor to be the first band to receive the MusiCares Person of the Year award,” said Mick Fleetwood on behalf of Fleetwood Mac. “Independently and together, we all set off on a journey to spend our lives as artists, songwriters, and musicians. None of us did it alone and there were plenty of helping hands along the way, so we applaud and celebrate MusiCares’ guiding principles of giving musicians a helping hand and a place to turn in times of need. We are very appreciative of this recognition.”

Set to perform at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards are current GRAMMY nominees Kelsea Ballerini and Lukas Graham; current GRAMMY nominee Cynthia Erivo, who will join voices with previously announced 10-time GRAMMY winner John Legend in tribute to those from the music community we lost this past year; and, in a special segment, current GRAMMY nominee Demi Lovato with previous GRAMMY nominees Andra Day, Tori Kelly and previously announced Little Big Town in a collaborative performance celebrating the music of the Bee Gees and the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever.

TRIBUTES SET FOR MUSIC ICONS GEORGE MICHAEL AND PRINCE ON THE 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS

“George Michael and Prince were pop icons who showcased rare musical genius and otherworldly charisma,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “While each possessed a distinct style and sound, they were both adored by audiences worldwide. The passings of two such creative innovators were a huge loss for the creative community; The Recording Academy is humbled to pay homage to their tremendous legacies on the GRAMMY stage.”

“While the primary focus of the GRAMMY Awards is to celebrate and honor the year’s best in music, we consider it our responsibility to tell music’s broader story by honoring its legends lost—that’s what we strive to achieve with our annual tributes,” said Ken Ehrlich, Executive Producer of the GRAMMY Awards. “While it’s nearly impossible to convey the full depth of an artist’s cultural impact in a single performance, it’s that very challenge that has led us to some of our most memorable GRAMMY moments.”

The 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards are produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for The Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich is executive producer, Louis J. Horvitz is director, Ben Winston is a producer, and David Wild and Ehrlich are the writers.
