What’s In a Number?

Numbers. They are a part of our life in every instance. Over the last few months, my life has been encompassed by one particular number. Whether in itself, in a series, or summed up by other numbers in a sequence; the number 11 has been haunting me – or has it? In fact, as I begin to write this piece, it’s no shock at this point (though another ‘ah-ha’ moment) it’s 11:11am (and yes, of course, I made a wish – again!)


Eleven is considered a powerful number that is often referred to as the ‘spiritual messenger.’ The number carries both positive and negative associations according to numerologists. In one sense, eleven can represent the need to make an urgent change – hence the saying “the eleventh hour”. But in another, eleven is connected with one’s destiny. Essentially, seeing eleven can tell you a lot about your life path and what paths you should or shouldn’t take. Don’t believe it? Well – neither did I, until I began to dive deep into how eleven relates to me in the present.

Eleven, 11, 11:11, 11/11…

Often times you’ll hear someone shout out “it’s 11:11, make a wish!“. However, my experience with the number 11 has gone far deeper than the common experiences. In fact, because I’ve been tracking this recently, in the last week, I have woken up to 11 new email notifications four times! What are the odds? And.. wait… holy sh*t – over the last week (7 days) it’s happened 4 times – do the math there in that sequence… 7+4… yep!

So What Does It Mean?

According to WillowSoul.com, it is the number of masters who impacted humanity and shifted the vibrations of our earth throughout history. I’m apparently being reminded that I came here to make earth a better place for future generations. Well you don’t say! Huh!

Everything is the result of your thoughts and feelings

Another meaning suggests that the universe has sampled my thought sequence and whatever being thought about intensely will manifest almost instantly in the physical reality. So in essence, if one is feeling really good about the thoughts being focused on at the time, the universe will soon manifest in your life. Overall, it is said that when you see the numeric sequence 11:11, it has a divine sign and you should pay attention to your thoughts.

Hello from the other side…

The whole 1111 thing can also be a way for a deceased loved one trying to connect with you. Your deceased loved one may have attempted to contact you in various other ways, but one of the effective ways to capture your attention is with this number sequence. Although the meaning of 11/11 can relate to a specific date of an event, the important thing is to be aware of the synchronicities around you so that you can recognize and understand the messages that are meant for you.

Is There a Secret Meaning?

The secret message the number 1111 is bringing to you relates to your mistakes from the past as well. In fact, your angels are sending you this number to remind you that you have in fact made mistakes like all other people, but you should leave them in the past. You experienced them, you learned from them, now it’s time to let them go. It’s time for new beginnings and better things to come in your life. From an individual perspective, people who fall into the realm of eleven are said to be very passionate and adventurous.

What Do The Cards Have To Say?

In Tarot, card XI is the “Justice Card”. Both the card and the number also stand for balance, wisdom, duality, and enlightenment. The number 11 asks you go to share your perspective with others. It’s telling you that other people have a lot to learn from your insight and wisdom and you should step up to be the natural leader that you are. Engage in social work or work for charitable organizations to fully channel this positivity of yours. However, as with everything, there’s the flip side to this. The reversed card identifies mistreatment, although, still acts as an eye-opening sign to accept, learn, and move forward.

In Conclusion…

Though the number itself appears to be a bit much at times, it appears that based on my personal experiences in the past year, it is in fact a sign. A sign that has pretty much smacked me in the face – as some can attest to the various instances in which the number 11 has snuck its way into my life; and in some cases eerily to the point where I’ve had to take a step back, deep breath, and walk it off. But it sounds like there’s a lot of positivity to take from it and in the end, my approach at it will make the difference. So, I’m going to act on this and I’m going to step out of my comfort zone. So with that said… okay eleven, I see you.. let’s do this!
