The Mysterious Language of Numerology & Angel Numbers:


The Mysterious Language of Numerology

& Angel Numbers:

How to Interpret Yourself, Your Relationship, Your Soul, and Your Hidden Future Through Numbers

There are messages and signs around you all the time... Do you know how to interpret them and use them to light your path?
Did your grandmother ever tell you to make a wish when the clock struck 11:11?

Many people grow up knowing that some numbers are considered lucky… But not many people stop to wonder why.

But there’s a good reason, and the answer lies in numbers. 

So much of life seems impossible to control.

How can you plan for the future when you don’t know what will happen along the way?
How do you know if you’re making the right decision?
Can you trust that you’re reading any given situation, right?

The chances are, you’re familiar with some of these worries… After all, they’re a central part of the human condition.

But the truth is that the universe does send you signs. 

Your angels are out there to guide you. The trouble is, you have to know how they’re communicating – otherwise you’ll miss the message.

And many people do.

But listen hard enough, and you’ll hear people talk about the magic of numbers… For example, Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Lopez, and Madonna have all said they’ve seen the power of numbers firsthand.

However, Numerology can be difficult to spot until you’re tuned in and know how to pay attention.

After all, numbers are everywhere – how do you know which ones are communicating something important to you?

You might be surprised to know that it’s actually very simple… As long as you know the code. Just like any kind of communication, understanding it requires you to speak the same language.

And Mysterious Language of Numerology and Angel Numbers is your answer to understanding that language. Inside, you’ll discover:

  • Exactly what constitutes an angel number – and what they symbolize when you see them
  • A concise history of angel numbers… because understanding how they work requires knowing where they came from
  • How numbers fit into the broader picture of numerology (and how to distinguish angel numbers from other significant numerals)
  • A clear understanding of significant spiritual terminology – do you know what a ‘vibration’ really is?
  • How you can tell if you’ve been identifying with an angel number all along… without even realizing it
  • Way beyond binary code… delve deeper into the significance of repeated number sequences
  • A clear guide to interpreting number sequences (even the ones that come to you in your sleep)
  • The angel number of love (have you been missing this sign your entire life?)

And much more.

Angel numbers have a clear message to impart, and when you understand that message, you begin to understand yourself and your life path more clearly.

The problem is until you speak the language, you’re in the dark… But here’s your solution to shining light on the mystery. Uncover the secret language of angel numbers, and watch as clarity unveils itself in every corner of your life.

Fair Winds of Death


Fair Winds of Death

Decades before NCIS became a television hit drama series, the real men and women of the Naval Investigative Service (NIS), both Navy and civilian personnel, solved case after case around the world without the help of personal computers, cell phones, DNA, or the Internet. They had to rely on dangerous street work, investigative skills, logic, experience, and information derived from informants to put the bad guys in the brig. And sometimes, plain old luck was the key factor.

In 1971, Lieutenant Commander Marcus Colt is the top internal affairs investigator for the NIS Washington D.C. headquarters. When the unusual cases come across the desks of the top Navy brass, this decorated officer is the one who gets handed the job. He is intelligent and driven to always succeed, but his somewhat short temper and touch of sarcasm can complicate things. For this latest case, his youthful looks and uncanny investigative skills are essential as he goes undercover as a junior enlisted man in Norfolk, Virginia. 

His mission is challenging: quickly find and stop the leaks of sensitive NIS information that have resulted in the murders of at least four confidential informants on the Norfolk Navy Base. To accomplish this difficult task, he has to build close relationships with all the personnel in the NIS unit, invade their privacy, and dig up all their secrets all while keeping his true identity and mission from them.

As the case takes unexpected twists and turns, loss of an old love, meeting a high-ranking officer’s daughter, avoiding assassins, and overcoming his own personal guilt from a previous Vietnam mission add complexity to the assignment. But both new and old friends and coworkers give Marcus the help he needs as he works to solve this case before time runs out and someone else dies.

Author Bio

Billy R. Wade, Jr. enlisted in the U.S. Navy Reserve in 1969. After being called to active duty, he graduated top of his class from both basic training at Naval Training Center (NTC) Orlando, Florida and Yeoman ‘A’ School at NTC Bainbridge, Maryland. 

After this training, he was assigned to the Naval Investigative Service Office in Norfolk, Virginia for nearly two years in the early 1970s. While there on active duty, he earned the Navy’s Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon with ribbon device ‘S’ after qualifying as a Sharpshooter with the standard sidearm at that time, the 1911 .45 ACP semi-automatic pistol. 

He left active service as a Petty Officer Third Class. While it was not required, Bill spent three additional years as a weekend reservist at his local Navy Reserve Center assisting with the clerical demands of the center, a Seabee unit, and a training course development unit.  

He holds degrees in Business Management and Computer Science, and studied marketing at the University of South Florida. Born in Roanoke, Virginia, he spent his teen years and much of his adult life in the Tampa Bay area of Florida before escaping to the mountains of West Virginia. 

While new to fiction writing, Bill has written several technical “how-to” articles that were published in hobby magazines. And he is nearly finished with the next adventure for his Fair Winds protagonist, Marcus Colt. He attributes his new love of fiction writing to surviving brain surgery a few years ago. As Bill phrases it, some of the connections in his brain have found “new and definitely different pathways.” 

In addition to writing, he owns and operates a hobby kit manufacturing business on his property in rural West Virginia. Bill helps the local volunteer animal shelter by fostering rescue animals with special needs. When not cutting firewood or shoveling snow, he spends his little free time staying proficient with his Colt 1911 .45 pistol to better assist with security at his church.
