Do You See Repeating Numbers Over And Over? THIS Is What It Means..
by Sun Gazing
When you see a clock displaying the time and it happens to be all the same number, like 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, do you make a mental note of it? Many people do exactly that and claim that they tend to remember and notice the time most often when the numbers are repeating. The reasons given for why this is so vary widely and you’ve likely heard of a few explanations for it.
Part of the allure of repeating numbers and why they catch our eye is that they’re visually pleasing. They appear uniform, clean, neat, and parallel respective to one another which is favorable to our eyes and mind, especially for those with a slight preoccupation with organization or numbers. This may help explain why so many people say that they seem to always be looking at a clock when the time is all repeating numbers, as the sight of it just sticks in our heads longer.
In relation to that is the concept of synchronicity that may help shed light on the mystery and fascination surrounding recurring numbers. Synchronicity is the belief that seemingly unrelated things, which in and of themselves are not that important, gain meaning and significance when they occur randomly at the same time.
These events are often called “meaningful coincidences” as they have no apparent effect on each other, but are nonetheless meaningfully related in some way. We give meaning to repeating numbers on a clock by ascribing to them a sort of magical, special value.
That value is best illustrated by the most popular and common belief surrounding 11:11, which is that whenever you see that time on a clock, you should make a wish and it will come true. While this may or may not be true for everyone, it does give the numbers a special and meaningful sort of value. That’s because every time you see it and make a wish, you’re thinking of the things or events that you most want to happen or come true. It causes you to stop and think for a moment, however brief it may be. Then, when you make a wish, you’re focusing all of your thoughts and energy on something in your life or mind that you want to influence.
Other beliefs include the idea that certain times are related to our spirit guides or guardian angels. They use repeating numbers as a way to get through to us and to grab and hold our attention, so they can tell us something important. In similar regards to that is another thought which is related to numerology. Within the practice there are three double digit master numbers, 11, 22, and 33, which represent different aspects of our inner selves, ranging from personality to spirituality and beyond. They are thought to have more potential and influence in our lives than other number combinations and thus increased attention needs to be given to them. In addition, the numbers stand for increased awareness and perception by offering us a channel to our inner subconscious self. Thus, the numbers are a direct link, or a sort of doorway, to our soul and the desires, thoughts, emotions, feelings, and ideas hidden there.
Then there is the theory that if you notice the time is all recurring numbers, and stop to think about it, you’re taking time off to acknowledge the moment. That simple fact, in and of itself, is vitally important. By simply stopping to fully realize and focus on what’s in front of you, you’re re-setting your own clock and rhythm. In the end, what matters is that you’re conscious and aware of time, life, and curious as to how all of the interesting things you notice in it connect.
