What does 11:11 mean to you?

If your anything like me – you notice things. Small, seemingly insignificant to most, but breathtakingly meaningful and beautiful to you.

Finding a feather in the grass, the smell of the air just before it rains, that perfect shade of pink in the sunset. The moment you think of someone and they text you (don’t you love that?!). It’s all apart of something big. Bigger than you, than me. It’s the pure magic around us. The universal love and oneness.

If you are feelin’ me on the above – then no doubt your also gonna connect with this blog post.

I’m talking about the 11:11 phenomenon.

1111.jpgWhat do I mean?
Look at your phone – it’s 11:11. **makes mental note**
Look at the clock – it’s 1:11.
**makes mental note**
Write the date – it’s the 11th.
**makes mental note**
Up working late. (Maybe working on Pinterest) – decide to stop and go to sleep, lock screen on phone – 11:11pm.
**make mental note**
Missed call; at 11:11am

I think you get the picture. It can be on a sign, phone, clock, picture, letter. Anything. Anywhere, anytime (as long as it’s 11:11 haha).

So after all this mental note making **must look this up** I’ve finally decided to put together this post to help us to find out what it REALLY means TO YOU. I mean, I didn’t really know exactly what it’s all meant until now, but I always knew it was significant and special. I know it’s something for me to not brush aside and something I can and should use to my advantage. I knew it was a nudge from my spirit. But why does everyone see it? why is this a ‘thing?’

Of course, to me – everything has to MEAN SOMETHING. I am constantly asking myself, but what does that mean????!!!!

11, or a combination of 1’s to me is like a little nudge (sometimes a big face plant!) from our spirit reminding us to keep aligned with our current level of consciousness. I feel like people who see this are quite ‘in tune’ to this sort of thing, thus are always searching and learning from the universe and asking some deeper questions about themselves and the world.

When you honour your intuition, things like this really do start to play a significant role in developing your connection with your spiritual self, and the repetitive, sometimes relentless signs are all just apart of the bigger plan to aid you on your journey.

I’ve read on my little google adventure today that the occurrence of multiple 1’s can mean MANY things and here are some of the ones I found – see which one’s resonate most with you:

  1. To make a wish – they come true!
  2. That your thoughts are manifesting instantly, so to keep your mind focused on what you desire.
  3. That it’s a sign from the universe that everything is in alignment and you are exactly where you need to be right now. Kinda like a high-five from your angels.
  4. Something significant is happening at that very moment and to make note of it.
  5. Reminder to simply stop, breathe and take in this very moment with gratitude.
  6. That its a ‘glitch in the matrix’ style time and it’s the best time to ask your angels/spirit guides for guidance.
  7. Represents the doorway to your inner self
  8. In runes, the symbol ‘1’ is called ISA – Which represents reflecting inwards.
  9. Significance with the Mayans (particular date in 2012 when we had a spiritual awakening)

Reading these things didn’t completely ‘feed me’ or answer my question the way I wanted it to. So I looked further into the numerology side of things because I feel quite connected to numbers. In numerology, the number 1 represents creation. The first, the primal force of which all other numbers are born. Without 1, there would be no other numbers.

When you look at the number 1, its shape also gives us a clue – it’s about standing up tall, pointing up to the sky, I think of an arrow when I see the number 1.

So when I put these two points together – to me a repeated occurrence of the number 1 is like those traits magnified…keep looking up to the sky, keep tracking forward on your journey, create your own reality, use your primal force and intuition to guide you there.

This then lead me to what are referred to as ‘master numbers’ – I have heard about them and knew they existed but never really took the time to research what they meant. Here’s my interpretation if your interested!

Master number 11: So here is the 11 we see everywhere! It represents our intuitive and psychic abilities – and when we see this number in this form or repeated, especially the way a lot of the masses are now – it’s a sign of a spiritual awakening. It means we are at a stage of looking to our intuition and reconnecting with ourselves and our spirituality. This is not about turning into a hippie, it’s about living in inline with your spirit – the part of you who already knows who you truly are and that simply wants you to live that journey. So to me – 11:11 is all about us REALISING that we extremely intuitive and connected; that this is a time of fine-tuning our spiritual abilities. It’s about creating syncronocity and harmony between mind/body/soul.

Master number 22: Is the next ‘level’ up so to speak – even though it’s not a competition and we must look at this as us all being a collective, all one mass working together. But there will be those who embark on this journey and build up their spiritual gifts, psychic abilities and become a master of their spirit. This number is about spiritual maturity – really living and breathing it. Oozing it. It’s practicing it daily to the point where it becomes second nature.

Master number 33: This represents the true master. Where you are at a level where you can teach your learnings and journey to others. When I think of this I think of people like Ghandi, like the Dalai Lama and even Einstein. They are true masters of their spirit. (I hope to experience this one day!).

So, essentially – this is my own conclusion – to me the 11:11 represents your connection to your higher consciousness, and when we notice it, it could mean a few different things depending on the circumstances but for me it’s about awareness that the universe is always conspiring to help you, and we are not alone.

It’s about realising that you are free – free to choose whatever path you want, free to choose the life you want to live, or free to continue to ignore the signs and live a life of restraint.


If you see 22’s or 33’s and wondered what they meant – look into this a bit more, because it might be indicating to you that it’s time to take your ‘art’ to the next level, whatever it may be.

Whether or not you believe any of this, I still think it’s pretty damn cool. I love being able to interpret something as mundane as the time of day into something simply magical, that could often be a life altering moment if you let it.

What does it mean to you? I would love to know!

Love, light & 11:11

    I love this!! And it’s perfect timing for me right now!! The first time I saw 11:11 – and really took notice – was when I was 15 and found out my friend died. I’ve seen it (seriously) every day since but I’ve probably only started to realise what it means to me in the past 3 years.

    Now I see 2’s and 5’s everywhere too! Thanks for the awesome post :) xx

    This was a really fascinating read!
    I think, to me, at this point in my spiritual development, seeing 11 or 11:11 reminds me that the Universe *is* supporting me, and I *can* manifest my dreams. It’s very easy to get sidetracked by ‘life’ and I forget all the awesome spiritual stuff I’ve been learning recently… so it pulls me back to that :)

    I love that you’re bringing this phenomenon up. I have a repeating number thing going on as well. Except, for me, it’s the numbers 20 & 40. Everywhere I go, it’s always 20…40. Each time I look at a clock, open a book, turn my mobile phone on, look at a sign….there they are: 20 or 40. These numbers have been appearing for me 4-5 times a day for a year now. Any input….anyone?

    I love this…I have seen a few posts on the 11:11 phenomenon but not had time to read them – until yours just now – because I dreamt last night that I had declarations of love from past boyfriends (quite nice but also quite bizarre) and each one occurred on the 11th day of each month ( there were a few!) I have been exploring self love and self worth in the past couple of days and I think perhaps this dream allowed me to see that at times in my life when I thought I wasn’t worthy – in fact I was! – Feeling a little closure from the past/ old way of thinking and a fresh balanced approach to the new! – my take on it anyway! Thanks for the enlightening post!

    I am just beginning to understand what has been happening to me for many decades now. One year ago the following was revealed to me…

    After many years of seeing 1111 in all its various forms and having this cone of silence removed from my spiritual third eye, this map was revealed to me… Please go to the above link to my Facebook page. These locations kept cycling through my mind. I was so frustrated with this revelation. I could not stop the names of: Wadena, Grand Rapids, Superior, Big Moon Lake, Harding, Lewistown, Salem from entering my waking thoughts. Finally, I was told to “Get the maps”. Wow…what does this mean? It took me some time and then I realized what I was being shown…. I am still dumbfounded and awe struck by what was show me from a different dimension. Imagine being informed through spiritual guidance actual tangible evidence in this physical world. Please review the above link. Once you have digested that for some time, please review what you will find at the following location:

    You feedback is welcome.
