Stephenie Meyer’s dream and the numbers 13 and 2
In 1831 the author Mary Shelley recalled that the idea for the novel Frankenstein came to her in a waking dream in the summer of 1816. One night in late September or early October 1885 Robert Louis Stevenson awoke from a dream that contained two or three scenes from what soon would become his novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. On June 2,2003 the idea for the book Twilight came to Stephenie Meyer in a dream about a girl and a sparkling vampire sitting in a meadow.
What is fascinating to the student of numerology is that Stephenie had her dream of Bella Swan and her vampire lover Edward Cullen on the 2nd, as 2 is a number that relates to couples and 2 is also the number of her life path. (Stephenie’s birthdate 12 (3) + 24 (6) + 1973 (2) – 11/2 life path). What’s more 6+ 2 + 2003 (5) adds up to 13, the karmic number associated with the Death Card in the Tarot and vampires. A look at the numbers of Stephenie’s name at birth.
5 5 95 = 24/6 + 6 1 = 7 = 13/4 Soul Urge
reveals that she was born with a 13 soul urge (the sum of the vowels in her name) and that her dream occurred on a 13 universal day. I. as a numerologist, tell people with an 11/2 life path number that they have a mission in life — that if they will heed their intution they will be shown the way to meet their destiny. People with an 11/2 life path are messengers of the gods — they receive revelations from above — messages to transmit to humanity. I believe that destiny was calling when Stephenie had her dream. Without prior writing experience, within a three month span she completes Twilight and doesn’t stop there but goes on to write additional novels about Bella and Edward.
Souls with a 13 soul urge come to earth with a desire to teach us something about death as it relates to the meaning of life and individuals with a 2 life path have something to tell us about love and relationships. A 13 soul urge combined with a 2 life path in Stephenie’s case equals Twilight, a gothic (13) romance (2). The book(s) have vampires, ie. 13, and above all else, the Twilight saga is a love story (2).
Twilight and number 13
On the same day she had her dream, Stephenie began writing Twilight. She started with the contents of the dream itself and wrote a transcript of every detail she could remember. It probably is a coincidence that this initial transcript would later become Chapter 13 of the book. But is it a coincidence that there are 544 pages in the hardcover of the book (544 = the number 13) and that the book was first published on 10/5/2005, a day that also adds up to 13. And is it a coincidence that Robert Pattinson who plays Edward in the Twilight saga was born on the 13th day of May — and that Kristen Stewart who plays the heroine Bella in the Twilight films was born on 4/9 with a 13 Success Number (4+9 =13)?

We get further corroboration that the number 13 is integral to the story of Twilight from the promotional material released to the public before the film adaptation of the novel premiered on 11/21/1908.
Note the date on the lower left corner of the poster. It is not 11/21/2008. rather it is 11 21 08 ..a date that adds up to 13 (ie; 11/2 + 21/3 +8 = 13). Though the number 13 does not actually appear on this poster, the fact that 11 21 08 does equal 13, we have a sublimal message here saying this is a film about meanings associated with 13. I call this abbreviated form of numerology (for want of a better name) “Twilight numerology”.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon and 13
Can history repeat itself twice ?– apparantly so, when it comes to films related to the Twilight series. The Twilight Saga: New Moon premiered on 11/20/2009, a date that adds up to 6. However, promotional material for New Moon listed the date as 11 20 09 (11/2+2 + 9 = 13), another instance of 13 by use of “Twilight numerology.”

Eclipse and Breaking Dawn
The third installment of the Twilight Saga film series, Eclipse, was released on June 30, 2010 – by “Twilight numerology” 6 30 10 (6 + 3 +1 = 10). – a day that does not add up to 13. However, there was an advanced preview of Eclipse at the Los Angles Angeles Film Festival on June 24, 2010. a calendar date that adds up to 6: however, by Twilight Numerology ( 6 + 24/6 + 10/1 does equal. 13) Will this string be broken with the film adaptation of the fourth and final book, Breaking Dawn? Apparently not. Summit Entertainment announced the film is to be split into two parts, the first of which is scheduled for release on November 18, 2011, a day that by Twilight Numerology 11/2 + 18/9 + 11/2 again = 13. Will part 2 be scheduled on a date adds up to 13 by Twilight Numerology”? Time will tell. Whatever the case, Stephenie Meyer (nee Morgan) and the numbers 13 and 2 will be forever linked for reasons other than the ones already stated in this blog — for reasons that are stated below.
The Numerology of Bella Swan’s birth name
The question has been raised is the character Bella Swan in any way similar to her creator. In other words, is Twlight autobiographical? The author dismisses that idea by saying that Bella is much more mature than Stephenie was at her age. I as a numerologist would both agree and disagree with Stephenie’s comments.
Stephenie tells us Bella Swan’s birth name is Isabella Marie Swan, a name that adds up to 2, whereas the name Stephenie Morgan adds up to the introspective 7, a number that savors its privacy. As already stated, Stephenie’s soul urge is 13/4, a number that is much more conservative than Isabella Maria Swan’s adventurous (and somewhat accident prone) 14/5 soul urge.
The Numerology of Bella Swan’s birth date
However, Stephenie has also provided us with Bella’s birthdate. She was born 9/13/1987 and shares with Stephenie the number 2 as a life path. This would indicate that both of them have something to teach us about love and relationships. In Bella’s case, one could say that being born on the 13th, she had to become a vampire (a 13) in order to achieve her 2 life path goal of a romantic partnership. Assuming that Stephenie Meyer may be ignorant of numerology, it is absolutely uncanny that she would bestow her creation Bella with the core numbers of 13 and 2, the same numbers that were predominant on June 2,2003 (6+2 +5 = 13), the day the concept of Bella and Twilight came to her in a dream. Since Bella and Stephenie both have the numbers 2 and 13 prominent in their personal numerology, they do in fact share some similar characteristics and will meet with similar (not identical) challenges and successes in life.
Stephenie Meyer Day
It also should be noted that the town of Forks, Washington, where the Twilight Saga takes place, annually celebrates Bella’s birthday 9/13 as Stephenie Meyer day.
