Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 275


Number 275 is a combination of the influences of number 2, the vibrations of number 7 and the energies of number 5. Number 2 relates to service to others, finding balance and harmony within, faith and trust in the Divine, intuition, mediation and diplomacy, grace and devotion.
