Certain Angel numbers are more powerful than others. One of the major Angel numbers is the number 8. You may see 8s a lot in your daily life and once you’re aware of the pattern, you may be wondering what your angels are trying to tell you.
As one of the major Angel numbers, 8 has many meanings. It indicates a focus on planning, organization, pragmatism and transformation. The number 8’s strongest indication is an understanding of karma – the universal standard of balance.
Angel number 8 and karma
Karma can get out of balance very easily, so if you are seeing the number 8 regularly, you need to stop and think about the impact your life has had. Karma can be old or new, so you have a lot of mental review to do.
In some cases, your karma may be unbalanced because you give too much of yourself away. By bending over backward for everyone, you put too much of your energy out into the world. In situations like this, it’s time to pull back and center yourself.
When you give too much of your energy away, it becomes harder to cultivate positivity in your own life. You may even feel annoyed with people because you feel that everyone has a demand for you.
In other cases, your karmic energy may be unbalanced because you are putting out negative energy. Karma tells us that whatever you get back whatever you put out into the universe.
So if you are overwhelmed by negative energy, you need to meditate on your role in that. Are you interpreting everything as negative? Are you giving negative energy to other people?
Karma, ultimately, is universal justice. By putting out positive energy, you can expect to receive positive energy back as a reward.
If you put out negative energy, you will get that negative energy back. This universal constant is fairness, and by cultivating your energy, you can help guide your karma.
So if you are seeing the number 8 regularly, first, you should assess your karmic debt and be honest with yourself about what you can expect.
If you have been putting negative energy into the world through your relationships with other people, it’s time to adjust that behavior. This can start through the simple act of asking for forgiveness.
Awareness and the number 8
If you feel confident you have settled your karmic debt, but you keep seeing the number 8, the message from your angels is more complex. Besides its karmic meaning, the number 8 can also mean that a change in your life is coming.
Change can seem like an exciting or frightening prospect depending on how your life is going, but this is actually a positive number.
Angel number 8 tells you that you’re about to head into a period of uplifted energy, the end of negativity and a new phase of self-confidence.
You can harness this energy for your own advantage by listening to the message your angels are sending and acting on it.
If you are noticing negativity in your life, then listen to your angels and remove it. Negativity can come from inside, such as with feelings of self-doubt, a lack of self-confidence and self-hate. It can also come from external sources, like a stressful job or negative people in your life.
To fight internal negativity, you have to love yourself, and loving yourself can be a daily challenge. If you are plagued by feelings of self-loathing, it can be difficult for you to look at yourself in the mirror and find something to love. But that’s exactly what you should do.
Several times a day, as you find yourself thinking negative thoughts, it’s time to look yourself in the eye and counter every negative thought with a positive one.
Think about how you’ve helped someone recently. Think about something about yourself that you like. It can be the smallest thing in the world, but every journey like this needs its first step.
Next, try shaking yourself out of your routine by opening yourself up to positive influences. If you are overwhelmed by negativity, donating your time and energy by volunteering can help redirect that energy, give you something to feel good about and open a new perspective for your life.
If you are facing external negativity, there can sometimes be a limit to how much you can control. If you have a stressful job, you can’t necessarily tell your boss to stick it even though you’d feel good initially.
After all, you have to pay the bills. But you can remove negative people from your life and stick to it.
Negative people may keep trying to spread their negativity to you, and it can be very easy to get caught up in a cycle of bad thoughts and behavior.
However, once you start removing them from your life, you may notice a big change – rather than allowing negative energy into your life, you may see yourself thinking about things in a positive light.
You can take control over your emotions and energy by choosing how you reframe information. If someone gives you negative energy, rather than passing it along to another person, you can choose to say, “This stops with me.”
Think about how often something negative happens and you call or text someone to vent. A few minutes pass and you’ve forgotten all about it.
But when that person responds, rather than moving on with your day, you are brought back to that negative moment. The more people you pass the negativity to, the more often it will come back to you. Karma in action.
Instead, take responsibility for how you see the world and how you handle your emotions. If you can’t break the habit of venting, try writing down what you would send someone and throwing it away. That way, you can let your negativity out without burdening another person.
The number 8 is a powerful message from your angels, and one that shouldn’t be ignored. Failing to account for your karma can have long-term implications.
Instead, by taking control of your emotions and seizing on an opportunity to embrace your self-confidence, you can create positive change.
And the best part of this positive change is that you’ll never know how many people you affect. By putting generous, happy energy out into the world, you can motivate and inspire others to adjust their behavior. Even if only a few people follow your example, the end result can be an exponential increase in positive karma.
