The number Zero is a sacred number, as it relates to meditation, prayer, and Source Energy. It is the starting point, the eternity, infinity, oneness, wholeness, ongoing cycles, and flow.
The number Zero encloses the attributes of all numbers. It is both Alpha (the Starting) and Omega (the Highest), as there is no beginning and no end. All is infinite.
