What Is The Significance of 11:11?

time11:11 make a wish! I’m sure you remember this saying, and maybe you still say it today. It is the only time of the day (using the 12 hour clock) that all the numbers on the clock are the same. Where does this saying come from? Should you even bother to make a wish? What makes this time so important and what is the significance of 11:11?

For me personally, as I started to awaken, I began to see this number all the time.  After a while I started to notice that there was some sort of spiritual connotation that went a long with the numbers 11:11. I sometimes go through phases in my life where for a month I see this number on the clock twice a day, and sometimes there are periods where I hardly see it at all.  What does it all mean? Am I more enlightened during the times when I see it? Is my soul or the universe trying to express something important?

There are many different theories out there to express exactly what this apparent phenomenon of seeing the numbers 1111 is all about. The most common theory is that when you see these numbers you should simply make a wish, and it is believed that it will come true. 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. 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.

In my opinion and what resonates with me, is that when you see ‘11:11’ whether on a clock, a license plate, your bank statement or wherever you happen to see it, is like 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.

According to numerology the number 11 possesses the qualities of patience, honesty, spirituality, sensitivity, intuition and is idealistic. I have read on a website that seeing 11:11 can be viewed as a glitch in the matrix, it is a very real way for the spirit world to communicate with us. I don’t know if we will ever find out exactly what it means, I think you can decide for yourself what it means to you. I know I always get a smile on my face when I see it, it definitely makes me feel good and I love to share with others, ‘Hey look! It’s 11:11!’

  1. Ha I think it means 11 minutes after 11 or $11.11 or 1111. I think that’s it.

  2. Mehnnnn… So many years gone and am still seeing 11:11 on my cellphone, even recently on my facebook wall… I don’t know what to believe anymore, but I buy the idea that it means am at the right place and my thoughts are in the process of becoming a reality. Maybe we should form a group of 11ners so that we can communicate and share experiences with each other all over the globe. Maybe we have a task an assignment to accomplish in the world. Let’s bring this energy together and fulfil our purpose on earth :)

    After finishing reading this article the time was exactly 11:11 !!!
    After reading the last line and looked at the clock and freaked out !!! LOL ..

    J.p. M11/30/2014 2:22amSo iv never considered myself a spiritual person but the number 111 has been everywere since the date 1/11/11.this number was never significant to meuntil the day of 1/11/11 my nephew born so started as a great day later that day I had received news that my 20 yo cousin who was also my dear friend had died, his birthday also being 4/11/91.The thing is though its not like I took immediate notice to 11 right after this tragic event but iv noticed more in the last year or so even more in the last couple of months that I will see the time on the clock is either 1:11 or 11:11 even as I googled what the number 11 meen it automatically was the first number on the search list.many think of it as subconcious but on average I see the time on the clock reads 1:11 OR11:11on average 3 to 4 times a week kinda feel thats hard to do not trying and its happened 6 times this week.I just wish or hope for a meening of this number since on occasion ya ill look up and see my birthday or someother anniversary but nothing as much as 11.I feel like a crazy person just posting this but I figure why not get others opinions on the idea of it being coincedense or phenomenon

      I think we’re noticing special number sequences because our deeper selves, the parts of us that normally stay in the subconscious or unconscious, are becoming active. It is this deeper self that guides one to notice the number sequences. The number sequences are signs from our deeper selves telling us the time has come to evolve and become aware so that we might use our free will to change this world for the better.

    Thank you! I really love it 11:11! I believe what you said! i’m in the right way, in the right place! Best regards from Venezuela :)

    Thanks for sharing the information about these numbers. I’m hoping its really angels trying to communicate.
    Wish the message would be clearer!

    I do believe I understand the significance of the 11:11, more than numbers on a clock twice a day. It is very spiritual! Is it perhaps a date also, the eleventh hour, God telling us something is up? The Georgia Guide Stones corner stone for 2014 was broken this year with JAM 2014 on it. Interesting.

  9. Karlee

    I literally see this twice a day and it’s been happening for a few years now, sometimes I would curiously ask the time to my friend and she would be 11:11, it’s starting to make me want to find out why. I don’t know how, but it keeps happening like and I forget about it until I look at the clock again and it’s 11:11.

    hi! thanks for some enlightenment you shared. A few minutes ago I saw 11:11 again on my cellphone watch. Honestly I do not pay attention nor do I follow the “make a wish” thing but I have noticed that I have been seeing repeated numbers not only the 11:11 more frequently now.

    I used to jump and say hey look! whenever I see (randomly) repeated numbers e.g. 2:22, 1:11, 10:10, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55,etc. but it has become a usual thing for me, so frequently happening in a day. I find it crazy now that it comes so often that it made me really think. I swear I never watched the clock, I do not even wear a watch since I am no longer working and mostly I stay at home and do my small business. I am starting to get curious as to what this means and what message this is trying to bring. I see the repeated numbers in my cellphone, our digital table clock, in the TV screen, on my computer, at the mall or coffee house, you name it. At one point I thought (morbid thought) that probably when I die, death would come on a repeated number on the clock.

    This is the reason why it led me to your site a few minutes ago when I saw 11:11 and prompted me to finally search for some answers.

    Just wanted to share my experience with you as others might be experiencing not only on the 11:11 but beyond it, the other repeated numbers which I see at random.

    Thank you and I hope to hear more of what others have to say or what they have experienced.

    i have been notise this number sevarel month i don’t know meaning of that thank you for explaination

  12. Bhavaani

    I generally read up on the number pattern from this website.

    Most times it resonates.
    If I see 4 digit numbers but only 2 numbers repeating in it like 2242, 0888 I would look up under repeated numbers at the bottom of the link. Most times I cannot be sure what it means AT THAT POINT OF TIME what the guidance is but later at a point in future when I think back, information resonated with the patterns.
