Many thanks for your welcome message. I've had so many people welcome me already, it feels like I've been welcomed into a loving family :) Am looking forward to connecting and sharing. Many blessings, Suzi
Ha! No, I haven't heard from Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, George Lucas, or any of those guys. I suppose they're all busy fighting over which one of them will get the film rights. I'm sure one of them will call me any day now. ~chuckle chuckle~ :-)
Ah! Sorry. Yes, my next book... Well, I thought it would be finished by now but it's taking longer than I anticipated. I'm going to try to have it out by October of this year in time for Halloween. You'll see why when you see the video teaser. It's quite different from The Ezekiel Code although it does include a little gematria and sacred geometry. It's an occult crime mystery. The inspiration behind it was a little known fact I ran across about Aleister Crowley's funerary ashes. It was just too good to pass up so I developed a tale of "magick" around it.
The same narrator (from a radio show) as mentioned above can be heard on another clip where he talks about the evolution of the English language and how it now can be used as a gematria language in the same manner the ancient Hebrew and Greek. The audio clip is here: http://www.asis.com:8000/Numbers/Numbers_9.mp3
Many traditionalists claim that an English-based gematria is not possible. Given the work I've done, I beg to differ. One good example supporting my position is actually found in the audio clip mentioned above. About half way through that clip the narrator mentions two specific prime numbers and their positions in the prime number series. He shows how those position locations (position 12 and position 21), when multiplied, equal 252 which is the Hebrew gematria value of the word "Light" or what could be translated as "Luminary" from Genesis 1:16. It just so happens that 252 is the English gematria value for each of the following phrases:
CONSCIOUSNESS OF LIGHT
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
ONE HUNDRED FORTY FOUR
The number 144 is esoterically associated with the concept of "Light" and, of course, Christ is said to have claimed "I am the light of the world" (John 8:12).
First of all... a great big "THANK YOU". I suppose those big name authors get used to people saying they love their books but first-time novelists like myself are honored and humbled every time we get a positive response to our work. I'd love it if you might be willing to post a review on amazon.
Regarding further information about my work with English gematria you can see much of it is presented in great detail on my website:
I'm very pleasantly surprised at all of the warm greetings I have received from several of you upon joining this most interesting site. Thank you. I look forward to getting to know you. Warm regards, Cynthia Rantala
