Make a Wish: The 11:11 Phenomenon & What It Means
Do you see 11:11 on digital clocks, on building addresses, or in random places just when you’re having an epiphany?
Around the time that we began our official careers as astrologers, we noticed an odd trend of repeating numbers and number sequences like 222, 333, 444, and so on. Often, we’d both glance at the clock at 11:11 and 1:11. Shortly thereafter, we had our first meeting with an editor at Teen People magazine (our first column). As we entered the building, lo and behold the address was 111 51st Street. For years, we had an astrology column for myLifetime, and for a few years, the company’s address was 111 Eighth Avenue, 11th floor! And on and on it went. We’d have a flash of inspiration and a bus would pass by, numbered 111.
We started meeting other astrologers and intuitives who told us they saw 11:11 all the time too. Since then, more and more people from all walks of life have reported seeing the trend of repeating numbers and wondering what it means. We had to do some research on this! Here’s what we found:
Make A Wish at 11:11
Many of our friends had been making a wish every time they saw 11:11 or 1:11 on the clock. No one’s been able to trace the origins of that one. It was just something they learned on the playground, or from a random relative, or through word of mouth. Still, we’ve found that it’s a great moment to pause and increase your awareness of what’s happening—or to set a powerful intention.
Lightworkers & Earth Angels: A Call to Action
We uncovered an entire network of people who consider themselves “lightworkers.” Lightworkers have a mission in this lifetime to hold as much light for the planet as possible; in essence raising the frequency of love and one-ness on Earth. Seeing 11:11 on the clock is a wake up call or a reminder that you are a lightworker. We love this! Other accounts we’ve seen regard this number as a message from angels letting you know that you’re an “angel on earth,” with the same mission as a lightworker.
In her book Angel Numbers 101: The Meaning of 111, 123, 444, and Other Number Sequences, angel therapist Doreen Virtue writes about 111: “An energetic gateway has opened for you, rapidly manifesting your thoughts into reality. Choose your thoughts wisely at this time, ensuring that they match your desires.” Don’t put any energy into thinking about fears at all, lest you manifest them. There’s a fascinating article on 11:11 by renowned psychic Uri Geller. The Kabbalah is also a 2,000-year-old belief system centered around accessing the Light, and teaches that our job is to become Lightworkers. (Doreen Virtue’s book Earth Angels is also one of our favorites.)
The Mayans & 2012
Our searches kept leading us to info on The Mayan Calendar. If you don’t already know, the Mayans were an incredibly advanced, ancient Mexican civilization with extraordinary skills in astronomy and math. Their 26,000 year-old calendar (which is associated with the “turning of the ages”) officially ended on December 21, 2012 at (you guessed it) 11:11.
This date marks a re-birth of our world according to the Mayans. This new world we are moving towards is all about one-ness rather than separation. If you see 11:11, this may be another clue that you are here to advance the concept of “we are all one” across the world. Take it or leave it, it’s a beautiful ideology and we know the late Bob “One Love” Marley would approve. P.S. The widely read book The Celestine Prophecy is loosely connected to The Mayan Calendar, as are a number of other New Age and consciousness-raising texts.
As for all the “end of the world” interpretations, um, no. We are seeing the end of the world as we know it, perhaps–which means greed, separateness, lack of social responsibility, disconnection from our influence on the planet and other living things. As far as we’re concerned, that world can end and we can all rise up to a higher dimension of spiritually transformed existence. Which brings us to…
The Fourth Dimension, 4:44 & The Rise 4D (Transformational) Living
In recent years we began seeing 4:44 and 44 all the time. 1111 added up equals four. In the week the Hurricane Irene struck the eastern seaboard, it was everywhere. Four is the number of Ascended Masters—angels and guides who are protecting and advising. In more earthbound terms, four is the number of transformation, of raising consciousness beyond ego. Since we began studying Kabbalah, the amount of times we’ve seen 4:44 has multiplied exponentially—we even wake up at night by “accident” and see it on the clock. Wow.
According to the Global Psychics website: “The 444 that you see, is a representation of the fourth dimension as seen from a perspective of the third dimension. You are moving into the fourth dimension. Your relationship to everything around you is now changing and this is representative of this movement. This is a time to incorporate mastery of self. This is the time to step into your empowerment. Though the attributes of the fourth dimension keep you from seeing yourself as empowered, know that incorporating empowerment techniques will serve you well at this time. Every time you see the 444 re-member Mastery and Empowerment.”

Repeating Number Sequences: What They Mean
More resources on repeating numbers:
One of our favorite websites about 1111 repeating numbers is Intuitive Journal. The author has even put together an ebook about it.
Doreen Virtue has a short article on the Spirit Library website about sequences.
This Sacred Scribes site writes extensively on it, too.
(From Rob in the Netherlands) I had been practizing the Merkaba meditation now for almost one and a half year. This I had learned from a facilitator from The Flower of Life which, as an ancient secret and very powerfull meditation, has been brought back to earth by Drunvalo Melchizedek. According to Drunvalo the numbers have the folowing meaning and in these final times will repeatly show up in our lives because of the proces we have to go through. Here they are:
Three of more of the same number (digital clock 2:22, 11:11, etc.)
111: Energy flow * Enhancing whatever level you are presently in *
111 or 1111: Energy flow of water, money, sex, kundalini, magnetic
It happens when one of these energies manifests.
222 or 2222: In the middle of the proces of resurrection or the proces of ascension
333 or 3333: A decision number. Either one of the folowing can happen: 666 = material world or 999 = spiritual world.
444 or 4444 The Resurrection number.
555 or 555:5 Christ consciousness
666 or 6666: Material world, chosen reality.
777: Symbolizes an integration of some portion of the four lower bodies with higher spiritual frequencies within the third-dimensional plane, or at level in which you are manifesting your physical reality on the Earth plan
888: Symbolizes infinity * The unified spiral of the physical merging with the Spiritual * Moving toward the completion of the ascension process through the energies of the 222 and 444
999: Symbolizes the three levels of the triune * completion
000: Great Void * Experiencing a null zone * switching or moving into a new energy field 11:11 Beginning of a whole new level or phase of development * Another dimension or frequency of experience * A PORTAL WAY OPENING *12:12 A COSMIC CONNECTION * A bridge to the future * Signifies a level of completion or graduation Pay attention to clocks, license plates, perhaps what you were doing at the time you sae that particular number…….what were you thinking, etc.I have found these to be very much a signal or sign after I have asled a question etc.
