GRATITUDE “WORDALA” hand-painted by Rosalind Pape.

WORD VIBRATION MANDALAS: “In the beginning, was the WORD”……

Every word has a vibratory coding, a geometric blueprint that evokes its sound and creation. It is fascinating how the meaning of the number vibrations in the word actually informs the perception of the word! Focusing on the geometric blueprint of words engages one with the essence and energy of the word, bringing that energy into one’s subtle energy field. In the same vein as Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, where positive words written on bottles of water cause the water crystals to resonate to their perfected geometric state, these mandalas reflect the energy of that word into your reality.

These Mandalas are used for meditation, for focusing that particular word energy into your life, following along with the rules of the Law of Attraction. They act as affirmations and energy generators, and having them in your home, where you can regularly interact with them amplifies the energy and intent of that word in your environment.

Using the Pythagorean system, words are broken down to the vowels and consonants and a total is determined for each before the whole word total is added up. When I created the concept of Personal Mandalas in early 2001, I found that there was a natural flow, or narrative, as to where these vibrations should appear in a mandala, and I use the same method to create my Word Vibe Mandalas.

The VOWELS carry the core, or SOUL essence of a word or name, and so I use that vibration to form the central circle, or inner core of the word:


while the CONSONANTS determine the outer, expressive (ego, or PERSONALITY aspect, if you like) vibration of the word, so I use the outer expression for the outer circle-layer of the Mandala.


The WHOLE WORD total gives us the full integrated blueprint vibration of the word, usually known as the Destiny or DESTINY POTENTIAL vibration. I use this vibration to determine the middle-circle of the mandala, uniting the inner and outer expressions.


So, the complete vibratory blueprint of the word is expressed as these three aspects in a 3-layered, or trinity mandala, with three circle-layers expressing the vibrations as their geometric archetypes.

I have created many different Word Vibration Mandalas, but when thinking about which word I should use to introduce the topic and concept on my new blog site, one word came to mind and heart: GRATITUDE.

I asked myself which word/feeling/concept would be the most beneficial and life-changing to integrate, and for me, the attitude of GRATITUDE is the one thing that can turn around your perspective, your feelings, and your experience of life .

Even if you find yourself in the depths of despair, depression or fear, if, for one moment, you can find that spark of gratitude from within yourself to thank yourself for the experience of life, to thank your cells for their infinite intelligence in giving you this life experience, there is an immediate turnaround, and that feeling of Gratitude BLOOMS like the lotus-flower of energy that it is.

We are in a 9 energy year, and the 9th card of the Tarot is the Hermit, and s/he embodies the attitude of gratitude that 9’s energy is all about: 9 is the Humanitarian, the philanthropist, the wise-one of old, having reached the end of the single digit series of initiations, and the pinnacle of the mountain. So it is no surprise then, that the Soul Essence, VOWEL vibration of the word GRATITUDE, is indeed, a 9! Read on >>>>>


1. VOWEL TOTAL: Soul Number: 18/9: Tarot symbolism: 9: The Hermit, 18/9: The Moon.



The VOWELS, or the core/Soul resonance of the word GRATITUDE adds up to 18/9. We have three numbers to look at here, but the 9 as the root essence takes precedence. Let’s look at the first clue by deciphering the number symbol itself. We can see that the 6 and the 9 are the same symbol, just flipped vertically. The 9 is a spiral that moves out from the centre, which expresses the energy of evolution, while the 6 is a spiral that curves inwards, symbolising involution and fertility. And both the 6 and the 9 are expressed through the word GRATITUDE.

Because 9 is the final single digit in the root essence family, it naturally completes cycles of experience. But it also initiates new cycles, because after 9 comes 10 and a whole new cycle of experience begins. So the 9 teaches you that you must be prepared to let go of the old and embrace the new and allow the natural completion of one cycle as another new one begins.

The main intention of 9’s vibration is to promote natural evolution. Evolution is a process of moving through experiences, learning from them, and then letting them go so that you can move ahead to further experiences. Knowledge becomes wisdom over time, and we know that the ancients knew how 9 governs the cycles, or rather, spirals of time in the Universe. 9 is the vibration that seeks aspiration, it heads the single-digit family and has reached the pinnacle of achievement as symbolised in the 9-step Mayan pyramids in the Yucatan. This notion of reaching the top is reflected in the traditional imagery of 9th Tarot card, the Hermit.

9-The-HermitThe Hermit is standing on top of a mountain, holding out a lamp of reflected ageless wisdom to the rest of humanity.

S/he has attained, and evolved through the cycles of growth that 9 completes. The Hermit has detached from the pettiness and density of the material plane by focusing on the task and goals s/he has set for herself and by looking at all obstacles as opportunities for growth, experience, and ultimately wisdom. The key symbolism of the Hermit is the “Lamp of Hermes” that s/he holds out. If you look closely, you will notice that the symbol of 9 is actually a lamp with a handle, a container of light that enlightens and illuminates darkness and ignorance. The Hermit knows that knowledge is worthless and meaningless if it is isn’t shared. True wisdom, and true fulfillment is achieved by giving out and reflecting your knowledge, and watching it enlighten others.

Now, geometrically-speaking, 9 is 3×3, so is a product of light reflecting itself, and multiplying exponentially as a result: the 9-pointed star is an integration of 3 nested triangles, maximising the creative power of the Mother Goddess, this is the lamp of light that the Hermit offers us.

The Hermit lives by high-ideals, and the highest ideal of all is Unconditional Love, which is the foundation stone of all the teachings of light. All these teachings revolve around the cyclical/spiral energy of unconditional love, which evolves life in all dimensions.

So the cycles that 9’s energy generate evolve us continually to the light and expansion of unconditional love. And GRATITUDE is the fuel that drives this evolutionary spiral. This is the secret that the Hermit (card 9 in the Tarot), has spent many lifetimes discovering, and the one that must now be shared today.

We also have the numbers 1 and 8 and 18 featured in the whole vibration of 18/9. 1 or ONE is the source of ALL, and 8 is the INFINITY generator, and creates the karmic flow of cause and effect. Applied to the concept of Gratitude, we can say that 1 (Source Energy) creates the flow of cause and effect (infinity, 8) to reflect the events via LIGHT and causing expansion, 9).

18-The-MoonThe 18th card in the Tarot is The Moon.

The Moon card is all about Illusion and Deception, and the imagery on the card gives us the impression of lots of outside influences vying for our attention. In a nutshell, in reference to the Soul vibration of the word GRATITUDE, the illusion and deception that the Moon card shows us is that our reality or our perception of reality is shaped by outside influences.

The Moon card is here to show us that if we let ourselves believe the illusion that reality is just something that happens to us, we will lose our way and become confused, the path ahead is obscured and full of twists and turns.

In conclusion, the Moon card urges us to believe in and honour our intuition, and intuitively, we KNOW that an attitude of GRATITUDE is what creates and abundant and fulfilling life, rather than letting ourselves be influenced by a host of conflicting emotions. this Moon is telling us to look beneath the surface, that reality is not how it appears to be or how it is presented.

So at the core of the word Gratitude is a hidden secret: always trust your intuition. Be receptive to your subconscious mind, it knows the way when the conscious mind does not! 9’s energy here is giving us the power to let go and surrender, accepting that life is a cycle of endings and beginnings, and not letting the past influence our decisions and actions

18/9 can highlight the fact that we may be distracted by a number of influences in our lives, often conflicting ones: with 18/9’s vibration we have the Sun (9) and Moon (the 18th card) merging, traditionally male and female, or the left-brain and the right-brain, the issue is that the two influences are polar and there may be a lot of work involved with trying to bring them into balance, or trying to see which direction is the correct one in the moment.

We see these two polarised aspects as the two pillars on the left and right sides of the Moon card. We also see the polarity of the Wolf and the Dog, wild and tamed, or free and controlled! But the path of evolution leads through the MIDDLE WAY! So the themes of Balance again, are paramount. And the next vibrations that resonate the word Gratitude, both the Destiny and Personality vibrations have a root-essence of 6! (BALANCE, INTEGRATION and HARMONY!).

And another resonance that offers a great clue on how to cultivate Gratitude is that the word GOALS also vibrates to 18/9: the self, 1 , putting plans into action (karma), 8, and delighting in accomplishment, which leads to GRATITUDE!!!

2. WHOLE WORD TOTAL: Destiny Number: 42/6: Tarot symbolism: 6: The Lovers, 42/6: 2 of Cups.


From the symbols themselves, from the meanings behind the numbers, the forms and the images presented here, it is abundantly clear that the energy of GRATITUDE is based upon the BALANCE and integration of the polarity of the mind in order to perceive unconditional love and empathy . This is a reciprocal relationship, and allows the awareness of giving and receiving: what one gives, one receives.

The geometrical form that the 6 vibration generates is the Hexagon, and its internal form, the Star of David: two perfectly balanced, interlocking equilateral triangles. This is the most evocative way of symbolising the spiritual axiom of “As Above, So Below”. This sacred form represents the concept that the material world is but a reflection of the greater reality, the unseen spiritual reality. The upward-pointing triangle represents the heavens, the cosmic source of the divine, while the downward-pointing triangle represents the earth, the birthplace of material form where cosmic energy can manifest itself and look back at the reflection in the mirror.

The symbolism of the 6 is all about the union of opposites, and this can mean the union of the left and right brain in order to perceive the world as it really is, rather than how it appears to be. This is the founding principle of Sacred Geometry, and Mandala Meditation, to address and present the laws of vibration to both sides of the brain equally so that we can begin to perceive with Unity consciousness. The 6 illustrates the relationship of the divine and the human, indicating that humankind’s spiritual path lies in the balance of the spiritual and the physical, the eternal and the transitory.

If we look at both the 6th card in the Tarot, The Lovers, and the 2 of Cups together, we see the male and female, or the bi-polar aspects of the mind coming together and merging . In the Lovers card, the two aspects are separated, in the 2 of Cups, they merge, but with clothes on! The winged Lion is the symbol of the exalted, or transformed ego, the higher self, activated by the risen and integrated male/female Kundalini energy symbolised in the Caduceus that links the two energies together. So we see that this points to a merging of the mind, the mind harmonising in order to perceive with Unity Consciousness, and reaching a state of unconditional love for all: an absolute GRATITUDE for creation.

Interestingly, the word Peacemaker adds up to 42, and this word describes 42/6’s energy perfectly, and we see that the man and woman offer each other a cup in peace. So, GRATITUDE is THE Peacemaker, soothing the mind and harmonising one’s emotions!


3. CONSONANT TOTAL: Personality Number: 24/6: Tarot symbolism: 6: The Lovers, 24/6: The Queen Of Wands.



So, the whole word vibration of GRATITUDE is 42/6, and the Consonant/Personality total is 24/6, virtually the same vibration, but with the 2 and 4 swapping places! The main point here is that 6’s energy is the most amplified vibration in the word, and that the 2 and 4 are also important, and reflecting each other, again, pointing to the crux of the issue: balance, reflection and harmony.

2 and 4 are both GROUNDING vibrations, the number 4 is the manifestation vibration, the Square is the symbol for the Earth, and the realm of physical manifestation, and we see this grounding influence in the numerical symbol of 4 too, with the cross anchoring itself into the ground.

The numerical symbol of 2 has a flat base, sitting firm and solid on the surface of the earth, so it relates to the 4 in the desire to plant oneself firmly on the physical Earth plane. 4, is of course 2 x 2, and naturally the desire to manifest runs through both the 2 and the 4. The image of the 2 is the Vesica Piscis, the merging of the 2 to become the 1 again, but creating 3, the Holy Trinity of Creation. This energy is then manifested in the secure foundations of the enclosed square, the 4.

The other big issues with 4 are security and discipline, and here in the Queen of Wands, we see a figure of Authority and Discipline. She is firm and clear and a great leader, yes, but she is fair and compassionate with it, with the root of the 6 being most evident. She is the Queen of WANDS, representing the FIRE element, the creative force, but she is sitting on a throne with a SQUARE base, she is manifesting that energy with clear intent and purpose. Her staff, or wand is touching the ground, and is sprouting fruitful leaves, having rooted and balanced itself in the earth.

The Queen of Wand’s attitude is one of confidence, assertiveness and courage. She has this message for us: Have faith and belief in yourself,  and you can achieve anything you desire, set your goals with a clear intent and you will achieve them, and trust your intuition! We also see a black cat sitting at her feet, representing clairvoyant sensitivity.

The Queen knows the secret to a fulfilling and rewarding life: have an attitude of GRATITUDE and Balance and Harmony will follow!
