Many people see the number 11:11 often when they look at the clock. What does 11:11 mean and what should we do if this happens to us?

Many people believe that seeing a specific number, or repeated numbers, often is a sign from the universe. It doesn’t necessarily need to be seeing the number 11:11 on the clock. It could be any number, or repeated number, in any situation, such as on license plates, phone numbers, or your bank statement. So, what does 11:11 mean?

Some people suggest that seeing repeated numbers is just a coincidence. However, many of us go through periods when we see such repeated numbers numerous times a day. This seems like more than just a chance occurrence.

Humans have always paid special significance to numbers. For many, the number 7 is lucky, while some believe the number 13 to be unlucky and others consider it a good omen.

The ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras introduced the idea that all numbers have different vibrational properties. From these ideas, the practice of numerology was developed.

What does 11:11 mean in numerology?

Numerology is a system of divination. It suggests that numbers have unique meaning derived from mathematical principles and vibrational properties. These numbers can be used to predict certain events or to pass on certain information. For example, you can use the numbers that make up your birth date to find your particular number, which, similar to a star sign, can predict certain things about you and your life.

The number 1 itself signifies creation and manifestation and is a number of pure potential. It signifies that you are about to create or manifest something into your life. In addition, the number 11 is a ‘master number,’ which points to a state of intuition, insight, and enlightenment.

If you see 11:11 often, it is a sign that you are becoming more aware and enlightened.

So, what does 11:11 mean for you?

Seeing 11:11 everywhere may mean the universe is trying to draw you attention to something, to guide you and make you more aware. It can be seen as a recognition that you are on the right path in life.

Other people suggest that seeing 11:11 means that your spirit guides are trying to contact you. Signs such as this are ways that spirits can use to get through to us on the physical plane.

Seeing 11:11 can also be seen as a sign that you are becoming more connected to the spirit world. Repeating numbers may indicate that a door into the spirit world is opening up to you. It can be calling you to step through this door and embrace spiritual guidance more wholeheartedly than you ever have before.

When you see 11:11 often, you are in a position to manifest powerfully. Be aware of your thoughts and feelings so you don’t manifest what you don’t want!

In order to make the most of this energetic ‘doorway,’ you might like to adopt one or more of the following practices in order to discover 11:11 might mean for you:

1. Journal

Every time you see this number, write down what you were thinking and doing and how you were feeling. If the universe is trying to draw your attention to something, these thoughts could give you an insight into what you should be focusing on. Journaling in general about significant thoughts and spiritual experiences can help you gain clarity and piece together what the universe is guiding you towards.

2. Pray

Some people say you should make a wish when you see the numbers 11:11. While you can do this, it is often more useful to thank the universe or spirit world and ask for further guidance and clarification. This will help you to develop a deeper understanding of what you truly want to manifest in your life and what you have been called to this plane to achieve.

3. Contact your spirit guides

If you have spirit guides, contact them for further advice. If you have yet to meet your spirit guides, then it might be time to connect. They are calling you to meet with them for divine guidance.

4. Be open to new opportunities

When you see the number 11:11 often, you are being called to open up to new opportunities. Stay open and receptive to new ideas. If there is something that has been calling to you that you have been ignoring, now might be the time to investigate it further.

Allow yourself to stay open-minded. We often dismiss valuable insights because they seem irrational or woo-woo. But we have nothing to lose by digging a little deeper.

5. Meditate

When you see these numbers, stop for a moment and meditate on what they mean to you. Meditation quiets the busy mind chatter and allows new insights and ways of thinking to enter.

6. Look for more signs

If the universe or spirit world is trying to contact you, it may do so in many ways. Look for other synchronicities. Make a note of your dreams and also of any other number patterns you see. Keep a journal of information about this so you can see if a pattern of guidance is emerging.

7. Ask a spiritual advisor

The above practices offer general guidelines, however, a spiritual adviser will be better placed to determine what the significance of 11:11 is for you. You might also like to consult a numerologist for more information and a reading based on your birth date.

    For several years i experienced 11:11 and other synchronicities almost daily which peaked in the year 2012, but more recently it seems to have stopped. I always knew that these were prompts from the universe to help lead me to live a better and more spiritual life. At the time i didnt think they would ever stop, but now im wondering is it possible that by receiving these signs and becoming more spiritual that i no longer needed these prompts and that’s why they have stopped?

      Hi, Frank. It sounds like the universe did its job in prompting you to become more spiritual. I love the way the universe always seems to know what we need. I’m so pleased you heeded the nudges and are leading a more rewarding life now. You may find some other prompt comes into your life at a later date when it is time to learn and grow even more!
      Thanks for letting us know about your experiences 🙂

    I have been seeing this number a lot as of late. Actually to the point I decided to research. Almost on a daily basis I see it at least once, I even made a comment to a cashier the other day that I was “haunted” by this number. I have a friend and a son both with November 11th birthdays
