11:11 What Does It Mean to you?
Do you ever look up at the clock and notice it’s 11:11? Does it happen to you often? Do you make a wish when you see 11:11?
Some people believe the numbers 11 and 1111 are considered to represent new beginnings as well as moments of oneness. Some people claim that when this number is seen it means that there is some kind of window opening up in your life and you should ask for the guidance of your ‘angels’ to find out what it is. Other theories state that there is something significant happening in the moment that you are in and you should pay attention to what is going on in your surroundings.
Per numerology the number 11 possesses the qualities of patience, honesty, spirituality, sensitivity, intuition and is idealistic and compassionate. Those people who are drawn to 11, operate on a different level of energy than most, and when two people come together who both have this type of energy it’s almost combustible.
Some say 11:11 is the universe’s way of urging us to pay attention to our heart, our soul and our inner intuition. Another thought is that 11:11 is a form of synchronicity. You get a feeling from seeing the numbers because they seem to jump out at you– to connect. You are feeling in sync with that pulse of life which runs through all things. For a moment, you feel at one, rather than separate and alone.
One of my favorite ideas that I read was that when you see 11:11 you should simply stop, and recognize the significance of the moment. Any why not just take a moment? No one really can trace the origins, it’s just something learned on the playground, or through word of mouth. Still, I’ve found that it’s a great moment to pause and set a powerful intention or wish.
Besides being a number that’s associated with dreams and wishes coming true, 11:11 is the only time of the day (using the 12-hour clock) that all four digits on the clock are the same. Not only is it an appealing number to the eye because of its symmetry and binary simplicity but because in this world where things are becoming so difficult and people are sometimes forced to settle for things; it gives people hope or something to believe in.
The truth of the matter is, 11:11 is subject to interpretation. There is really no right or wrong answer when it comes to the question of “What does it mean” for you?
In my opinion and what resonates with me, is that when you see ‘11:11’ whether on a clock, a license plate, an address or wherever you happen to see it, embrace it like it is a friendly little sign from your soul, source, higher-self, or the entire Universe, whatever you choose to call it, God, if you will, that everything is in alignment and you are exactly where you need to be, right here, right now.
So, my wish this week for you is to collect as many good moments and experiences as possible. Make as many wishes on 11:11, or that shooting star on anything else you believe in and just dream, hope and live so that when you are old and life plays as a flashback, it is a colorful movie, not a black and white reel.
Happy thoughts for you always,
