“Reach for the Stars”

The Energy of the Angel Number 88

The angel number 88 contains the energy of the angel number 8, doubled, and is influenced by the angel number 7.

This combination of energies makes the angel number 88 one of the luckiest and most auspicious numbers you can receive.

It is the energy of hard work resulting in accomplishments, celebrations, and rewards. It encompasses the energy of all the phases we experience along our spiritual journey. How the ups and downs, good and bad, mistakes and successes all come together to create a complete and whole cycle that makes us grow emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Pushing us into the next phase of our journey. Each new phase full of possibilities for exponential growth and success.

The angel number 88 is seen by those who have already accomplished massive feats along their journey. And now they are experiencing the good luck, rewards, and payoff for the work they have done. Its message urges us to keep going and keep reaching higher to achieve our greatest potential.

The angel number 8 encompasses the energy of infinity and connectedness. It is the energy of how the lower energies and higher energies in life and spirit are necessary to create balance and help us achieve our purpose.

It represents all the phases we go through in life that ultimately give us unlimited and infinite potential for anything. It propels us to achieve greatness by putting in the work to make ourselves and the world a better place.

It is also the number of karma; the more good you put into the world, the greater your reward will be, both in this life and the next.

Influences of the Angel Number 7

If you add the sum of the angel number 88 (8 + 8 = 16, 1 + 6 = 7) you get the additional energy of the angel number 7.

The angel number 7 is the number of interconnectedness and spirituality. It resonates deeply with the way all things physical and all things spiritual are connected, especially where physical connects to spirit within us.

This is the number of triumph and the accomplishment of our life purpose. And it resonates with being rewarded for our connection to spirit and overcoming problems and hardships with grace and dignity.

It is the energy of the mind, learning, and bettering our physical selves. As such, it is a solitary and independent number that encourages a focus on self, but with the knowledge of interconnectedness. In other words, working on our own life purpose contributes to the greater good.

The angel number 7 is ultimately the perfect balance and combination of our physical world with the spiritual world that leads toward luck, rewards, and good fortune along our life paths.

How the Energy of Angel Number 88 Affects Us

The angel number 88 is largely about achieving prosperity on earth by following our life’s path.

It is the necessary phases and cycles we go through that allow us to learn and grow and achieve our highest potential. It is the energy of filling your cup until it overflows, spreading good to others, and reaping the benefits of a job well done. The rewards and benefits you receive will help you grow and assist the greater good even further.

If you see the angel number 88, it means your vibrations are high, and the angels can reach you very easily. As such, you are in a place where things that can help you along your life path (such as money and other material goods) are manifesting quickly. This is happening because you have put in the work to grow spiritually and emotionally. You have done what it takes to achieve your life purpose, and good fortune is the payoff.

The angel number 88 serves as a reminder that your past and all your experiences have brought you to where you are today. You have managed through obstacles, struggles, and challenges with grace and dignity, and you have come out the other side better for it. As such, your inner wisdom and intuition are immensely powerful guiding forces in your life.

But the angel number 88 is about phases and cycles. So although you have already accomplished so much, you will soon enter a new phase. Yet another cycle of ups and downs full of endless possibilities and potential to achieve even more. So it is essential to stay focused on gratitude and what you desire to ensure this new phase is on the right trajectory. Being focused on the negative, fear, or doubt will result in a cycle of negativity that will only serve to stifle your growth.

Overall, the angel number 88 is the push to believe in yourself and the endless possibilities your fate holds. It urges you to do what it takes to achieve your highest potential. To learn as much as you can and develop yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically. As you do, you will reap prosperity and rewards. Use the rewards you receive to help you accomplish even more along your life path and spiritual journey. All the good you put out into the world will come back to you in spades.

Keep your thoughts positive and live with expectation as you follow your life purpose. The money and material goods you need and desire will come to you.

The angels are letting you know that the possibilities are endless and your potential to achieve and accomplish is limitless. So reach for the stars and keep reaching higher. Strive to be the best you can be and accomplish greatness.

On the Verge of a New Awakening

You have come a long way on your spiritual journey, and you are close to finishing the current phase you are in. Soon you will enter a new one. This new phase of your spiritual development includes a new spiritual awakening. Be prepared to have epiphanies and enlightenment as your connection to spirit strengthens.

There Are Some Obstacles and Challenges Ahead

As with any phase or cycle we go through, there will be challenges and obstacles to overcome. When you see the angel number 88, the angels are letting you know that you are destined to encounter such trials soon. Keep in mind the struggle and difficult times we endure teach us and help us grow. Without them, we would not have reason to push ourselves and learn just how capable we truly are.

When you face any challenge or obstacle, be sure to turn inward and power through them with grace and dignity. You have what it takes to endure and overcome. Trust yourself and your inner wisdom to guide you. You also want to focus on gratitude, what you desire, and the positivity in each and every situation. And be sure to call on your angels and guides to assist you whenever you need them.

Go With the Flow

Life is a process. We must experience the ups and downs and understand how all of it creates a whole and complete picture of accomplishment of each phase of our existence. So when you see the angel number 88, the angels are reminding you to let the good and the bad flow through your life and keep your focus on positivity, optimism, and what you can gain from every experience you go through.

Always think about what you are grateful for, keep your eye on your desires, and find the good in every experience you have. There is good in all our experiences as long as we choose to learn and grow from them.

The thoughts, feelings, and what we focus on are the energy we are putting out in the universe. Whatever energy you are putting out there, the universe is sending back to you. The warning of the angel number 88 is that you can just as easily become stuck in a negative cycle if you allow difficult times to pull you into negativity. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, fearful, or concerned, do what it takes to turn those feelings around and emerge from the cycle of negativity and into the cycle of positivity.

Anytime you see the angel number 88 the angels are reminding you to keep your thoughts positive. To relax, trust, and believe as you allow the good and the difficulties in life to flow in and out of your experience. Knowing, no matter what, you are growing and becoming something more amazing because of it.
