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 digital 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. In fact, many people believe that seeing number sequences is an important message from angels or spirit guides and thus, call them ‘angel numbers’.

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 meanings 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 life path 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 powerful 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 the number 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 your 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. Some also link this number with a twin flame reunion when you meet the person you are meant to be with.

Other people suggest that angel number 1111 means that your spirit guides or guardian angels 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 spiritual energy. 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 negative thoughts and feelings so you don’t manifest what you don’t want! Instead, focus on positive energy and thoughts.

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 what 11:11 might mean for you:

1. Journal

Every time you see 1111 angel number, write down what you were thinking and doing and how you were feeling. If it’s a wake-up call and 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 could be sending you a message, 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. Pay attention, be open to receiving more messages, and 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. This will help you better understand the messages you are receiving.

7. Ask a spiritual advisor

The above practices offer general guidelines, however, a spiritual adviser will be better placed to determine what the meaning 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?

    1. Kirstie Pursey

      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 do see 11:11 often…..trying to figure out what its trying to tell me

  3. gina cabangon

    am i lucky i was born november 11, 1979

  4. prabhjit kaur

    good evening beautiful souls, i am experiencing this number very often for eg. on my clock or sometimes my phone beeps and i see its 11.11 or i check time for my train i see its departing on 11.11 but i want to know why its happening is there something i need to know behind this number 11.11???

  5. [email protected]

    Im just starting to observing mine, when i heard about this form a Friend anc it comes with different numbers like 04:04, 07:07..

  6. Sheddicus

    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

  7. Sue

    I see 11 11 Alot. My birthday is September 23rd 1963. There seems to be no rational reason for this. I am trying to find out why but find it so confusing. It doesn’t happen with other numbers. I was told it is bad luck etc….

  8. Lily D

    For me, it was always 11:18. I had a crush who was born on November 18th and I always saw 18 everywhere. It didn’t matter if it was the number of notifications on my YouTube or text. Sometimes it was even “streaks” on Kahoot in class. It would even show up as 1:18 on the clock counting down for passing time. Sometimes I’d buy something and my change would be exactly 18 cents. Sometimes it was on TV like “get 18% off” or “only $18.99/hr!” It wouldn’t go away. Him and I “broke up” so it was really hard for me to constantly be seeing something that reminded me so much of him. And it really sucked having to write 2018 on the top of all my assignments. What helped me was every time I saw 18, I had to look specifically for ten other numbers within two minutes from seeing it. It was actually really easy and it taught me that you only think you’re being haunted by bad memories when as a matter of fact, you’re always bombarded by memories and you get to chose if they’re bad or not. I still will look at the clock and if I see 11:17 or 11:19, I’ll pat myself on the back for missing something so painful.

    Today I see 11.11 two times at am.and pm.
    I’m so afraid of this

    1. Jesus Retes

      Nothing to be afraid, 1111 is an invitation into the spiritual path, in other words you should be happy, we go on many lives learning to get to this point. I was meditating for months until I started seeing this number, once you realized you started your spiritual path you will start seeing 111 222 333 444 555…. its the way the universe and spiritual guides will communicate with us and each set of numbers has a message. But nothing to be afraid!!!

  10. Krishnan Kesavan

    Yes its quite interesting to note when this number always blinks on clock, watch and mobile. its surprises me why i always see this number quite often . I never look for this but its always appears to me any comments?

  11. Drew Blanton

    I saw the number 1111 in a book yesterday. Whether or not it really means anything, I have a tendency to feel blessed. I don’t even need to see numbers because I’m so blessed that I’m naturally peaceful.

  12. Dionne

    I see 11:11 all the time I normally smile and thank the spiritual guides and ask for more directions and clarification

  13. Sandra

    I’ve seen 11:11 for as long as I can remember. Sometimes repeatedly throughout the day like my clock was wrong in my car so conviently when I drove to school at 8ish it read 3 hours later lol then I’d see the actual 11:11 and we’ll u get the idea … when I was younger I tried to figure out if it was something positive or negative because I seen it sooo much I knew it had to mean something. I ultimately found it was when life was going well and seemed to be associated with positivity in my life.
    Anymore I’m surprised if I don’t see it lol As of late I’m feeling more spiritual than ever as I’ve just lost a piece of me my only sibling a sister and lifelong best friend just over a year older than me. And met a man that’s blown my spiritual growth and personal awareness understanding off the charts. And I’ve Really learned sooo much about myself in these years. It’s crazy. So he sees it now too and will msg me when not with me… I need some direction and guidance and wanting to understand what’s being shown to me .. hope that makes sense. Lol

  14. Dua

    Hye! I’ve been seeing this a lot from past few days and I used to make wishes. I have started a YouTube channel and I always think about it so it might be giving me a sign for success

  15. eva

    I have been seeing 11:11 on and off for many years and never paid much attention to its significance, the other day I was reading an article on the possible significance of seeing this number and while I was reading it I thought to look at the clock- It was exactly 11:11

    1. Joann Spillman

      Every time I see 11:11some one in my family passes away even my only child died in March 11 and other people I know not Ken to me I hate that number

  16. Masoud

    I’ve been seeing 11:11 constantly for two years
    I didn’t know what that meant
    I thought it was a coincidence
    What i should to do?

  17. Sneha Malipedi

    Since a month I am seeing 11.11, 1.11, 12.12, 2.22, 3.33, 4.44, 5.55 almost every day. What to do

  18. Deedra L Crespo

    I have been seeing 11:11 repeatedly this week over and over. Also 9:11. This is mindblowing . Never happened before in my life. I’ve had a rough 2019 and i dont know if the universe is preparing me for something bigger and better in 2020. I’m conflicted in my love life and have been for a very long now seeing numbers of this sequence leads me to believe that something is going to happen in my near future and I am not sure what that is.

  19. Rebecca

    For MANY years I have found a dime and a penny together. At one point in life they were everywhere. I one time got up to use the restroom came back and a dime and penny were in my chair. I asked to show a couple of people and they appeared (not in front of us) but in one case in my sisters car. Another my boyfriends drawer. Anyhow I see 11:11 often. I thought long ago to give thanks to God when I see it. This article has REALLY helped me to make sense of things. White feathers as well. After my Mom passed my niece was with me on 2 separate occasions when a tiny white feather came out of nowhere and floated past us. Thank you!

  20. Mark

    I have experienced the numbers 1111 for quite some time now and it doesn’t stop. Usually its 1111, but sometimes its 111 or just 11. A few examples are below:

    – bootcamp platoon number 1111
    -my bday is Oct 11
    – both of my first two long term girlfriends bdays were December 11
    -my phone number ends in ###-1111
    -sisters bday is April 11
    -recent gym membership code is #11
    -moved into my recent apartment on Nov 11(11/11)

    It seems to be daily that I see the numbers on the clock, pause movies at 1:11, 11:11, and even 11:11 and 11 seconds. It never ends. Im not a superstitious or overly spiritual person, but this occurs entirely to often to just be chance. I may never know for sure what it means. But I will continue to keep my mind open if the answer ever comes my way.

    1. Tommy

      Hey Mark, I know this is necro-ing your comment, but I’d like to speak with you if you’d give me the opportunity to ask you a few questions about your experiences. Hopefully this finds it’s way to you.

  21. Althea Ashley

    I have seen this number 11:11 on my phone very often especially when am talking to my soulmate

  22. Ruby

    I have seen very often on my watch … What is that mean ?

  23. Mark

    I have been signaled with 1111 and many other eye opening experiences for over a year now. I knew it was a signal to educate myself on the hidden truths of the “reality” we live in. I not only believed but knew deep down about facts which most people would brand me a nut for believing in. My spirituality has been awakened and my desire to learn more is a mission that I have embraced. Read the Wes Penre papers, Wingmakers/Ancient Arrow project, L/L Research “The Law of One”, Dialogue with Hidden Hand, David Icke – Everything You need to Know, The Pleiadians with Barbara Marciniak, Bernhard Guenther, Zecharia Sitchin. And there is much more! Look at Astronomy picture of the day. There is a lot out there folks!

  24. Michelle e

    Okay , so I consider myself very open , very charismatic, very caring individual but for months life hasn’t been so easy and I advise to anyone that experience this think of it as a hard time but it always passes so go with it your energy will not allow it to park … anyways today with the work I do I will get alarmed when theirs work except the alarm went off their was nothing then I looked at my phone and their it was 1111 not only that today is the 11 and I’m born on the 4th so I’m so excited you would have thought I hit a winning ticket but we all know that is not always so good unless you share . I have become a fan of your site michell

  25. Hagen Weidmann

    Hi there!

    I have been seeing 11:11 on my phone now for the past week and a bit. I only see it in the morning, not at night. Every time I just happen to look and there it is.
    Anyways, I was just wondering what I should do about it? I am thinking of starting to meditate now at least 10 minutes before I sleep and maybe that’ll do something. I am still learning more about this stuff. Its all very interesting and I love it!

  26. Gloria Mcneill

    Thank you for coming into my life. I being trying to figure out why I keep seeing 11:11. Than I went to get a lottery ticket in October for the whole month and the time that it was printing out was 11:11. Than coincident when I bought for the month of November the time was 11:11 also. I have being waking up a 11:11 at night to see it on my phone. Am I going to come in to something good in my life. My family and I really need it. I also had another number I see a Lot to.

  27. Kat

    First time I saw this 11:11 on the clock I thought this is neat….it’s been over a week since I’ve been seeing this 11:11 and tonight I was excited to see it AGAIN!!! I feel something good is gonna happen, I feel excited. This morning I woke up saying affirmations. Never did that before. I’m thrilled!!

  28. Josie

    The 11:11 number has been following me ever since I was a teenager. Constant. Birthday: 11/01. Out of 20 some pets over my lifetime the smartest and loyal and most loving born 11/11. Father birthday 10/11. Son’s birthdate 11/11. Clock seems to be at 11:11 any time I’m thinking of son, father or universal spiritual questions. And more. I always interpreted seeing that number that the universe was telling me I was on the right path. Was also told it was a power number and people have always commented on my intuitive and compassionate nature. I don’t understand it but for me it is fomenting something good.
