♦ It is a book about how signs & synchronicities guide us on our destiny path.
…when all roads come to an end, the magical road begins…
This tale follows a young Indian girl who believes in the idea of a soul mate. Guided by certain dreams, she takes on the voyage of her heart, magically navigating Asia, Europe, Africa, South-North-Central America…
Through synchronous events, Boi meets a mysterious man she believes is her soul mate. But then the love she’s just found is lost because ofher own fears. She must battle the dark nights of her soul, or remain discontent the rest of her life. Thus begins the inner journey. Her heart nudges, and like a fallen leaf, she flies in the direction of her dreams blindly, with only signs wrapped in the sheets of desire guiding her.
The day Boi decides to listen to her heart, it compels her to bare her soul naked to this man, for he is her magicNine! Over the next three years, she writes to him the story of her heart, sometimes trying to impress him with her knowledge of the universe, at other times desperate to revive her lost love, yet never giving up until the writing takes on a life of its own, and the saga of her life unfolds in the pages of this book through myriad musings mailed to him over millions of moments of madness, melody and magic.
Words flow to her from all corners of the universe, pushing her story in a collage of expressions, a piece from here, a text from there, a poem from nowhere, all of which fit the jigsaw of her life story, one she is reluctant to write…
In search of her soul mate, she met her own soul!
Magic of the number nine 9
1. If you want to write the nine times table, you just have to start with 0, then write the consecutive numbers 1, 2, 3, 4… all the way up to 9 downwards. And then start from the bottom with 0 again and write 1, 2, 3… all the way up to 9 upwards. And you have the nine times table!
nine times one is 0 9
nine times two is 1 8
nine times three is 2 7
nine times four is 3 6
nine times five is 4 5
nine times six is 5 4
nine times seven is 6 3
nine times eight is 7 2
nine times nine is 8 1
nine times ten is 9 0
2. All multiples of ‘9’ add up to nine when summed and reduced to a single digit, like in numerology. For instance, take the multiple 18. Summing its digits, we get 1+8=9, or 36: 3+6=9, or 108: 1+0+8=9, or 999: 9+9+9=27 and 2+7=9! No other number exhibits this property.
3. Think of all the elementary numbers that exist: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. If you add these up, you get a multiple of nine! 0+1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9=45; and of course 45 adds up to 9 (4+5). And even if you remove the number ‘9’ from the equation, you get 36 which again is a multiple of nine. So if infinity could be summed and reduced to a single digit, it would be a nine!
4. And many more! So you see nine is unique and magical. Nine is my sign, my destiny number and my favorite number.
