Do you find yourself glancing at the clock at the same time every day? I’ve been seeing 11:11 for what feels like forever. Maybe you see 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, or 5:55 on the regular. It’s just like hearing the same song all the time — you could look at it as random coincidence, or you could see it as a message from the universe. It may not come as a surprise to hear that I prefer the latter! I believe that there are no coincidences, and everything happens for a reason. When I look at the events of my life, it is so clear to me that there is a deeper meaning to everything that has occurred.
(On that note, I have to disclose that I am an ENFP, and ENFPs “find meaning and significance readily and see connections that others don’t”. So, in short, if you think this is all a load of bunkum, chalk it up to Myers-Briggs! Ha!)
There’s a growing contingent of people who believe that the numbers you see regularly are a direct message from the universe. Curious? Here’s what they mean…
1:11 or 11:11
The sequence of 1s is a sign of lightning-quick manifesting. If you see 1:11 or 11:11, it means that whatever you are thinking about is in the process of becoming. 11:11 is a great reminder to keep your thoughts positive! Spiritlibrary.com says, “The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form.”
Some have said that 11:11 is a wake-up call for lightworkers, another word for people who do positive, healing work in the world. It’s a message to continue to do your best, and, if you’re in a job which doesn’t light up your soul, to move into something that feels more authentic to you.
2:22 is a sign of new beginnings and hope. It lets us know that things are about to change, and that we need to keep taking action when it comes to making our dreams come true.
2:22 tells us to keep going, and not quit just before the miracle happens. You know the old saying, “It’s always darkest before the dawn”? That’s the message 2:22 is trying to impart. Whatever you have been dreaming about and wanting to manifest is just about to make itself known to you. Don’t lose faith or hope: stay positive and keep your heart light.
Think of the number 3 as an equilateral triangle, perfectly even, the three sides signifying body, mind and spirit. 3 is all about balance and self-care. When we see 3:33, often we are out of balance. If you keep glancing at the clock and it says 3:33, take it as a sign that you need to step back and examine your life.
Ask yourself, what does my body need? More rest, more movement, better nourishment? What does my mind need? Meditation? Introspection? Healing? Forgiveness? What does my spirit need? Do you need to step into your power? Let someone go? Move forward? When you ask yourself these questions and answer them honestly, you’ll know what to do to bring yourself into better alignment.
Doreen Virtue says that seeing 4:44 means that “thousands of angels surround you at this moment, loving and supporting you”. I am not personally sold on the whole angels concept, and if you feel the same way as me, you can choose to interpret it a little differently.
4:44 is a message that all is well. Relax! You have nothing to fear with regard to your life, work, and soul purpose. Everything is as it should be. You are doing what you should be doing, and you are doing it properly. Keep at it!
5:55 is the number of massive change! While change can be scary, and almost all of us prefer our tried-and-true routine, change is the way we learn, grow, and evolve. When you see 5:55 repeatedly, it means that positive things are about to swept your way. Hold on tight, and don’t be afraid! You can handle it!
