The 11:11 Phenomenon

The 11:11 Phenomenon


Do you ever repeatedly have the same numbers pop up around you in your life? Does the same number follow you around hoping eventually you will find its meaning?  It seems I have fallen into the 11:11 phenomenon and it follows me everywhere.  I will look at the clock every day at exactly 11:11 whether I am out and about or I pull my cell phone out to use it.  I see the number in random places and I always chuckle to myself because it has gone so much further then just being a coincidence. 

For example I was showing a listing and I happened to glance up at the clock on the microwave and it said 11:11.  Not an unusual occurrence for me but it was the middle of the afternoon! What are the chances? This is just an example of how this number follows me around.   So it was time for me to figure out what was this 11:11 is all about. 

I soon learned that I am not the only one experiencing this phenomenon.  I was excited to learn that the number sequence 1,111 is from spirit guardians or angels.  The 11:11 is their way of using our ability for pattern recognition to let us know they are here.  Once you start paying attention to the signs they will pop up again and again.  There is more in depth meaning to the number and if I feel inspired I might write a series on it.

Are you entrapped in the 11:11 phenomenon? Or is there another number that seems to follow you around such as 12:12, 10:10, 4:44.  I would love to hear your experiences.

Amy, Your post is fascinating.  You mentioned that it might be from spirit guardians or angels.  That intrigues me. 

My number experience is that most of the time when I glance at the clock, especially when I wake in the night, the numbers will show up as a repeat of the same number: 1:11, 2:22, 3:33 on to 11:11.  It happens so often that I really notice.  I wonder what this phenomenon means.

Amy:  For some reason my brain seems to instantly connect the digital time that shows... with something that relates to it.  If it says 12:25... I say... Oh, it's Christmas Time.

Or if it says 7:19... I find myself thinking of my daughter's birthday... on July 19.  It gets silly, at times.  Going way, way back to my childhood... there used to be a bug-spray repellant called 6-12.  So, whenever the digital clock says... 6:12... I think... Oh, it's Bug Spray Time.  Just more signs of my nutsy'ness, I guess.

In a couple of weeks, the Time in Seconds + Date will read  11:11:11 11/11/11.  This will occur Twice that day (AM and PM)

That is almost as exciting as the big moment in July of 1990 when the Time in Seconds + Date was 12:34:56 7/8/90

Gary,  You are a part of this phenomenon!!!  Those are the exact numbers that go along with what I am talking about.  Spirit is talking to you.  Go ahead and google the number you feel comes up most often and read about its meaning.  See if there is a message for you in the meaning.  IF you have heard of Wayne Dyer he talks about waking in the middle of the night at the exact same time and he does have a meaning for it. He is an amazing author.  I cant remember which book if I do I will let you know.

Pay close attention and you will soon figure out the meaning.

Karen,  You are so funny and this is not nutty at all.  Like I said in my post this is just pattern recognition and you are matching it up to the events in your life that correlate.  Start really paying close attention to the numbers and see if they are the same. There may be a sign for you.

It's a good sign.  I plan to set my alarm to that time both morning and night, so I don't miss it and I will wish all the people I'm with much love, luck and happiness.

Dear Amy - I do believe in associations, but there are variances...possibly to the points in your life?  I had a coach in high school that used to say my number would be "5"...  I always used to look for that, but I found later that I didn't think he had my mindset at least with that number.  Then I had a few weeks which I awoke at 7:13am several days in a row...not everyday that week but several days for those couple weeks.  Yes, I thought that was odd, but then I said it was my body just being on a cycle.  I will have to look into more of what you say, as I find it interesting if there are other meanings.  I do know that the #4 is not a great number in the Feng Shui recommendations.....  Please keep us posted, inquisitive minds would like to know :)

Amy very interesting as throughout the day i often see similar things, i was just eating lunch and looked up to make sure i wasnt late formy next appointment and it was 12:12pm . Someone once told me to make a wish..

Amy, 11:11 is my favorite time of day - both times it happens! I discovered a LONG time ago that with a digital alarm clock (exactly as pictured in your post), there are exactly 11 separate digital lights on at 11:11 if there is a light to indicate AM or PM. Nerd alert! Yep, but what can I say? I like numbers.  :)

Just like Kerrie mentioned above, I'm also looking forward to 11:11 on 11/11/11. Crazy awesomeness.

Amy, it's always good to have something you like, something that makes sense and gives a good feeling. If you believe those numbers are lucky; then they are. Believing in something is important, hope all is well, awesome blog.
