The meaning of 1111

What does it mean when you see the number 11:11?


After 16 years of closely observing the appearance of the number 1111, I have finally decided to post it on the 11 November 2018 at 11:11 am GMT. Why? In numerological terms, this number becomes 11 11 11 – which is a super powerful manifesting day.  In numerology, we use the 11th day with the 11th month and then add the numbers of the year 2018 (2+0+1+8=11). The sightings of this number are more than just chance, choice or coincidence.

I would also like to point out that as I woke up this morning to finish off this blog post, I logged onto Instagram and look at my message and numbers! This keeps happening to me every time I log into Instagram. Post credit goes to @Yolisabam.

My personal journey with this number.

At the age of 21 when I had my rude awakening and life showed me my mortality, it was in this awakening when I started to notice the synchronicities of signs. 1111 was one of these signs. I first noticed it as each time I looked at the clock I would look at the time when it was spot on 11:11. It was peculiar, I thought I was going a bit crazy as I was not the fully developed spiritual being, I am today (many years later).  I had received some bad news about my health, and I thought that my life was ending, I started to question everything and also doubt myself. It was a massive attack on my self-worth, and I can tell you that I did not stop seeing this number on clocks, page numbers, addresses, and books. My doctors’ letter at the time even had a date stamp with 11:11 on it. It was during this time I honestly started my deep spiritual journey, as this was the time I truly reflected on who I was and started to sort out some of the most profound traumas I had lying deep within me. I began to meet other spiritual beings and the synchronicities for the answers I was seeking started to fall in front of me, as I began to trust myself and the process, I began to really calm my anxious mind down more and saw that I do have some power in my situation. With this knowledge, I began to understand that I have the ability to manifest by observing my thoughts and shaping them with clear intentions. It was during this time that all the synchronicities in the years to come of meeting myself, meeting spiritual teachers, and finding the light that I met my angels, my guides and developed my relationship with spirit. It was this very number that made me ignite my relationship with my heart.

Carlo Tickner follows Christian practices, believes in angels, spirit guides, manifestation, life after death and associates this number with a super positive experience. Carlo said, “Whenever I look at my phone to see what time it is, it’s 11 minutes after the hour. At first, I just ignored it, but after a while, I realised it happens way too often. I really had great days whenever I saw this. Almost like a good luck charm. I always feel good when it happens. I even called my business “eleven past” because of this.

Zanandi Botes follows Agnostic practices, does not believe in angels, spirit guides and life after death. She does believe in the power of manifestation and associates this number with a super positive experience. Zanandi said, “I am very aware of patterns, and 11:11 pops up so regularly that one cannot help but appreciate the frequency as a clear pattern, even a statistic, instead of what some might say, a simple coincidence. So, when I see 11:11, I am reminded of the mysterious ways in which our universe works, many of which we will never fully know or understand, and instead of being overwhelmed by such thoughts, it calms me. It might sound silly to some, but for me, it’s like the universe whispering into my ear, “We’re in this together.” Not only is it a reminder like I’ve mentioned, but because it happens so often, I sometimes think it’s a sort of test. As in, “Do you still see me? Are you still aware? Just checking.”

Liz said, “Nothing happens other than I do to understand but in the last year I see double numbers including 11:11 maybe 5-6 times a day. I don’t know what it means, and I’ve started sharing it with a friend as I couldn’t get over how often it was happening! Not sure. I’ve read it means spirit is trying to contact me but in not sure. It suddenly started happening this year. I have no explanation yet for it.
