Everything comes in threes?

Blog Posted:9/26/2012 3:00:00 PM
I realized today, as I was putting away groceries, that I tend to buy in threes.
Three boxes of this three cans of that ..etc.
Then I got looking around the house and noticed that I also
tend to put thing in groups of three. ( I must be bored today)
Where I have collectibles they are grouped in threes, plants threes,
pillows threes.
I have been employed by three companies.
I have three children.
Apparently bad luck also comes in threes
Psychologists and psychiatrists classify most phobias into three categories.
Thankfully I don't suffer from triskaphobia
Am I the only one or there three other people like me???

Did you check your soupmail? After you sent me your birthdate, I figured out your Destiny number, the most important by numerology and you ARE a three, lady. That explains it all.

I think subconsciously we tend to find what we are looking for except for the car keys and cell phone.

It is the rule of threes - started in folklore - the psychology of it is that people like (and remember) things better in groups of three. there's tons of info out there on the internet about it. you are not alone....lol :)

Patricia. I would be very interested in knowing your birth date because it seems that three vibrates strongly for you. My number that does this for me is FIVE. Soupmail me if you would like me to tell you your numbers!
