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!’

    I think I’m going a bit bonkers. For no reason at all I’ll find my eyes on my cable box, my stove top clock or my microwave and see 11:11. What is up with this? I’m not spiritual but can’t explain this oddity. Others??

    • annexi

      I think perhaps it might be some sort of consciousness from the unseen world (spirit?) making contact as a way to encourage us to examine ourselves, prepare for something big that’s coming, and make peace with how we live in this world so that we create something good to go to in the next.

    ive been seeing 8:08 for most of my life any idea what that might mean?

  3. Amanda

    I’ve been going through various awakenings, including kundalini, for quite some time now. 11:11 has become an important aspect of my life. When I see it I feel more aware and at peace. It’s almost like a reassurance that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be on my journey. I saw it everyday, sometimes twice a day for over a month until I found out I was pregnant. I still see it occasionally now, but much less often. It’s always a wonderful treat.

    I’ve been seeing number 11 for the past 8 or 9 years. Just have no idea why I see it all the time. My wife and son told me to stop thinking about it but it’s not working. I’m in Afghanistan working as a contract and I see it here too, same as when I was in Kuwait, Dubai, Qatar, Japan, United States, Germany, etc. I’m flying in 2 days to London to visit my brother in law, and when I purchased my ticket a few days ago and when I looked at my ticket it says Etihad Airways Flight EY0011. :(

    • Lisa Masini

      what kind of things are going wrong with you when you see those numbers? hope you can get better.

    • Pedro

      same numbers I get from time to time plus very often 23:23 which is also 11pm and as im writting this I see also an odd (read backwards 3-2=1 1:1 11 9/11 an so on :) Interesting is some people believe that we just do this automatically using our biological clock however many times it happened that I was asked for time, looking at watch, boom 17:17 than I think its more complicated. Also couple of time I saw the time on someones watch just by accident. So big respect to all mathematics but I dont think its enough to explain it.

  7. It happens twice per day alomg with 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55 Then the next day it starts all over again. There are twelve times in a 24 hour that this pattern occurs.

  8. Mars

    Thank you for the explanation this has happened to my mom daily in a period of about 2 years almost everyday now it happens less, but at least we have some kind of idea what it is now :)

  9. I have no clue about seing 1111 so i read some post in the forum from various websites. My work is related to information technology, so almost everyday i saw this numbers in my clock, computer system time, in programs, clients data and references i mean everywhere. Its almost 2 years already that i keep seeing this numbers. I have a strong belief of our creator and every morning i say a little prayer before going to work and grateful for any form of blessings. Is it possible that we have a mission? and what would it be? Thank you.

  11. I wonder if other strings of single digits have any meaning: 222, 666, 88, 8888 for example. Thanks.

  12. Self realized :)

    Even jesus born at that night, cool stuff. & I was born at 11:00 or 11:30 night. By birth i felt my-self strange, very introverted through out my life & questioning what is this life or my-self as human. I felt i was not in my “home” planet or star or something. At 2011, after major open surgery of hormone dis-balance, 2012-2013, my DNA fully activated and my crown chakra opened instantly. Now i became very much as healer and always study or post wisdom quotes and thoughts. I am already started my social service and planing of charity and to help the blind people to realize themselves and to gain their natural eyes. But i am for career search too, here little difficult but i made my faith strong no matter where i will land as i have ADD/dyslexia so i am using visualization techniques and this is making many wonders, still no idea what next but i believe in my-self cause i am already “homed” and enlightened, now i can help many, same time indirectly i am healing my planet imagining in purple light(y-favorite) and golden light . I know some of my past life as self as indigo/acturaian and other planetary origins being multi-dimensional. It clicked my mind when at 2013 i got awakened 2 nights with fast vibrations and bells in my ears, i saw the time it was 1st at 11:10 and 2nd night it was at 1:00. It was like a complete recovery of who am i !! Fully awakened and the number really gave me a reason or purpose of my born.

    What do you do when it is 11:11?

    • Jovanna

      I wish something

    • When i see 11:11 I stop what I’m doing and say hi to my Mom who died in 2001. Miss her and know she’s thinking of me. When I first saw 11: 11 I panicked. Thought all kinds of bad things. As tiem went on and I finally figured out Mom wat saying hi did I settle down… I saw11:11 everywhere several times a week… Now it’s less ans since I can talk to my Mom it’s all good..

    This insanity with 11:11 is happening to me on a regular basis. Recently I randomly glanced at how much time was left in a movie while watching it on my Kindle Fire and saw the fleeting 11:11. What are the chances? I am also “awakened”. Right now I am reading a book on biocentrism as I would like to get closer to the truth. I was born on 11/6. I often see 1:11. I was sick last summer (high fever and no other symptoms for over 2 weeks). Around that time I was watching “Lost” on my iphone and the episode next in queue was called “Enter 77″. While watching, I glanced at the battery count and there was 77% of the power left. Later that day, I was googling for more information about unexplained fever. The first website I opened stated there were 77 reasons for having fever. What is the meaning of number 77? Why did I run across this number 3 times within a few hours? My fever eventually went away and I got better. What was the Universe trying to show or communicate to me?

      Dear Rita – something is afoot, I’m not sure what yet but undeniably my mind and yours too by the sounds of it and I’m sure others as well are experiencing these numerical events that are not possibly random or coincidental. I do believe it’s imperative to find the love that exists in the heart space and hold on to it as the very most important thing you do moving forward.

    My numerological number is 11. It is indeed a spiritual number. Since the age of 11, I started studying astrology, then later in teens, numerolgy. Young adulthood I studied Zen Buddhism (but never practiced). Now into my late 30s, I found spiritual science…all my life its been about spiritual quest. What does 11 means? It means between two lives. One is the first number after Zero which represents “incarnation”. One is the Origin of all things and all things return to One. After the last number 9, in numerology, you go through “0″ and reincarnate into the next One. So 11 represents between two lives, and the spirituality of it!

      I like your explenation, I can accept it as an answer to this question, eventually :) Thank you.

    I always felt there was something significant with number 11, but felt my opinion ma have been bias as I was born on 2/11/55. Also feel something significant with all numbers being a common denominator such as 55. I went to rehab on 11/11/83. 8+3=11. While in there an I.Q. test was given and the results came back with a 121 I.Q. 11×11=121.
