What Is The Hidden Meaning of Seeing Repeating Numbers?

by Subconscious Servant

I remember when I began to notice the phenomenon of seeing repeating numbers. This was just when I’d begun to dive into books about consciousness.

For me, it was right after the devastating attack on the Twin Towers. The media had begun to refer to it as “9/11.”

I remember wondering if it was a coincidence, that the date happened to match the emergency number, 911.

A little voice inside me interrupted my thoughts. It said, “there’s no such thing as coincidence.”

I then began to see the number everywhere. During a holiday, I’d randomly wake up and check the time. It would be 9:11 on the dot.

Sometimes, on my walks, I would hear someone randomly use the number 911, in passing. It was never about the emergency number, or about the terrorist attack.

I’d slide a CD into my disc player, and happen to look at the display. It would read “Track 9 of 11.”

I’d see billboards, with the same number. It was literally everywhere.

Then it became other variations, such as 119 and 191.

Phone numbers. My new bank account. My new debit card. Random car license plates. Random songs on the radio.

Soon, other numbers began to show up too. The one that stuck with me the most is 11:11.

At this point, I realized I had stumbled on something.

It was either something profound, like some Higher Power trying to contact me, or I was going crazy.

For a while, I thought I went with the second option, and was freaking out big time.

Till I decided to research this phenomenon.

I found out I was not alone! Good news! So maybe I’m not crazy after all.

“It’s Only Your Reticular Activating System”

I tried to talk to family and friends about this. No one could relate. They all told me I was overthinking things.

I remember cousin Deb saying, “I think you’re dabbling into things you really have no business with.”

But she didn’t understand – I didn’t go looking for these numbers. They came for me!

Something was trying to get my attention. But what? And why? I wanted answers.

So I spoke to others on the net. More often than not, I’d run into that one person who snobbishly says, “It’s only your reticular activating system.”

The first time I was told that, I went Googling.

The Reticular Activating System (RAS) is in the brain stem. It’s a bunch of nerves which acts like a filter, sorting through all the unnecessary information we’re bombarded with daily, so only the stuff that matters to us can get through.

Say you think about buying a red car. Soon, you begin to notice so many red cars all around you. That’s the power of the RAS.

Is That All There Is To Seeing Repeating Numbers?

I can tell you, without a doubt, no.

So Why Do I Keep Seeing Repeating Numbers?

Like you, I asked myself this a lot, in the beginning.

Now, I’ve come to realize something: these numbers are basically how your Higher Self or spirit guide or the universe or whatever you want to call it, reaches out to you.

I’m not particular about the terminology, because I don’t want to force you into a box. Some people call these numbers angel numbers.

When you pay attention to the context in which these numbers show up, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly what it is your Higher Self or spirit guide is trying to draw your attention to.

Seeing Numbers Means You’re in Alignment with The Universe

On a general note, when you keep seeing repeating numbers, it also means you’re in alignment with the Universe!

I like to look at these repeating numbers as gentle reminders from my Higher Self that I am on the right path, and I’m never alone.

These numbers are one way in which synchronicity makes itself obvious to us.

Here’s the thing: everything in life is synchronicity. It’s one big, beautiful dance.

However, since for most people, a lot of synchronicity goes over their heads, numbers are a great way for the Universe or your Higher Self to draw your attention to this.

What does being in alignment mean?

It means you’re in the right place, at the right time. It means no matter what’s happening, no matter what it looks like, you’re not alone. It means in the end, things always work out.

Some people think when they’re out of alignment, is when things aren’t working out.

But the truth is you’re never not in alignment.

It’s simply that in the moment, you’re letting whatever you’re facing dictate the way you see things.

So you’re seeing things as “bad” or “negative.”

These numbers are gentle nudges from the Universe, letting you know there’s a perfect plan, and you’re doing just fine.

Even though it seems like you aren’t right now.

Do These Numbers Have Any Meaning?

Every number is unique, and has it’s very own frequency. For instance, in my case, I began with seeing the numbers 9 and 11 together.

9, among many other meanings, happens to signify an ending or the completion of something.

The number 11 signifies a gateway. To what? A new beginning.

It’s a gateway that lets you peek beyond the veils of reality to what really IS.

As when I began seeing 911, I couldn’t help but notice a couple of things.

One thing was, life as I knew it was changing, on so many levels.

Things that I had become used to, were ending in my life. I had just graduated from college.

I had also begun to explore consciousness. I had my very first deliberate Out-of-Body-

Experience, which led me to see that there is so much more to life than I had ever thought.

I was experiencing a lot of synchronistic events that utterly blew me away.

In other words, there were a lot of endings for me (9), and I had stepped into a whole new world, in terms of consciousness (11).

Seeing Them As Warnings Or Encouragement

There are also times in my life when I will get a sudden wave of certain numbers. I mean, like an onslaught of them.

Without fail, when these numbers spring up like this, it means something great is about to happen.

Sometimes it’s a warning.

Other times it’s more like my Higher Self cheering me on.

When I’m feeling a bit out of sorts, or in need of guidance, or some reassurance, I reach out to my Higher Self.

In these times, I’ve found I see a lot of 1111, 333, even 1234, and a few other repeating numbers.

Like I already mentioned, each number has its own unique frequency. This means it has its own inherent meaning.

At the same time, you need to keep in mind that all the stuff you see on the internet are simply guides, and nothing more.

Why do I say this?

Well, each number has a different story, a different message for each person, and depending on the situation.

In the end, it all comes down to you, and the way you interpret it.

The meaning of the numbers would also depend on the context. It would depend on what’s going on in your life in general.

Also, if you’re wondering, “Why do I keep seeing repeating numbers,” keep in mind that their meaning could depend on what you are thinking about in the moment.

How Do I Figure Out The Meaning Of Repeating Numbers To Me?

So you want to know the meaning of the repeating numbers you keep seeing.

That’s natural. Here’s what I recommend, to start with.

#1. When you see a repeating number, I want you to pause, and ask yourself a couple of questions:

What was I thinking just now?

How am I feeling right now?

When you ask yourself these questions, you can get a good clue about what your Higher Self may be trying to communicate to you.

Remember how I said everything is synchronicity?

Those numbers showing up as you were thinking a thought, or feeling something, is also synchronicity.

#2. Now you’ve identified the thought or feeling the number was about, you need to get still.

What do I mean? Just shut your eyes. Take in several deep, luxurious breaths.

Next, with your eyes still shut, move your attention to your heart area (your heart chakra). You don’t have to visualize it.

Just feel the area by placing your attention there.


Whatever messages your guide is trying to get across to you, will be clearer when you listen with your heart.

It might sound like a cheesy line from a song, but it IS true.

#3. When you listen with your heart, you’ll find your answer will most likely be a feeling.

More than just a feeling, it’s like a knowing.

I can’t quite describe it, because it’s best experienced. So do this exercise, when you notice a repeating number.

Also, if you’re really sensitive and have had some practice with contacting your Higher Self, or channeling, you might get an actually message in words.

You might also have a vision. It’s not necessarily like how movies make it out to be.

An image or a series of images might flash across your mind. You’ll know what it means, and if you don’t, then move on to the next step.

#4. Be thankful. I have a simple phrase I use, when I get a repeating number, but don’t get what it means.

I say, “Thank you, for all will be clear to me in time.”

Without fail, I get to see and understand what the number implies. Sometimes something happens, that day, or some other day.

Other times, I see what it means clearly in a dream.

Just trust that your Higher Self will make things clear to you, in a way you’d totally relate with.

#5. Having trouble with this whole “listen to your Higher Self” business? Don’t worry about that much.

I recommend mindful meditations, to increase your sensitivity to these messages.

In the meantime, you could read other people’s experiences or interpretations of these angel numbers.

Over time, you’ll be able to see a pattern. Then you’ll be able to tell which meanings apply to you, and which don’t.

Seeing Repeating Numbers is Only The Beginning!

You’re waking up now, to the larger part of you. Enjoy seeing the repeating numbers!

They’re sure signs your Higher Self is with you, looking out for you.

Also, they are signs of so much more magic to come!

I know this for a fact.

When I began to see the synchronicity in numbers, the phenomena began to happen in other ways as well.

I began to have mind-blowing coincidences (there’s no such thing as a “coincidence,” by the way.)

I began to have more lucid dreams and astral projections that have shown me a lot about how reality and manifestation work!

I have had major changes in my life. People dropping out, and new ones coming in. Old energy giving way for the new.

A lot of stuff I indulged in just naturally fell away, and I found myself truly living with passion, for the first time.

So brace yourself! There’s going to be a lot of change. Some of it will seem “bad” on the surface, but trust me when I say it always works out.

Have fun and enjoy the rollercoaster!

Moumita Chakraborty July 14, 2019 - 5:31 pm

Thank you for clearing the confusions I had regarding synchronicity and repeating numbers. It has been a while that I see these numbers almost everywhere and wonder what are they up to! Also, I am glad that I am not the only one who is curious about these phenomena.

Sanghamitra G Mukherjee August 28, 2021 - 7:42 am

Thank you so much for this valuable insight. Especially finding the meaning of repeating numbers in heart chakra, I followed your method and it worked. I got the answer like a knowing from within. It’s true.
Thank you once again, good luck on your journey.

Shantelle Montoya October 11, 2020 - 3:37 pm

Thank you for this information. It has given me an insight as ro what I have been going through lately myself. I at first I was trying to connect it with my past experiences and trauma and I actually felt like I was going crazy there for awhile being in my own thoughts and allowing my mind to take over. It has taken me months now to actually figure out what has been goibg on after a lot of praying and research I have come to let myself feel what needs to be felt and heal the wounds of my past. To move forward and accept what life has given me and to continue looking forward in thi journey we call life. I see many numbers and and more in tune with them more then ever and I can feel myself letring go and enjoying the day as it comes living in the now and understanding what living in the moment is and truly being happy within myself even if I am home alone. So again I thank you and appreciate you taking the time out and the courage to write your story.

Kristeen Dureck April 29, 2021 - 6:38 pm

Hi! I have been seeing repeating numbers frequentlyAs a matter of fact, I was reading this arrival and when I looked at the clock on my phone it was 222. My birth time is also 222. I see 333, 444, and 555. I haven’t figured out what they mean but I always see them as angels. Sometimes I see them as a sign from my higher self. Or possibly signs of my sons sending messages to me from the other side. It is very interesting!!

Karen Betty August 9, 2021 - 7:01 am

I’ve been experiencing the sighting of these number for many years and it has always made me feel happy and protected… I have now been enlightened and again joyous for having such a blessing occur in my life on such a regular basis. Much love, peace and happiness!

I keep seeing 11:11, 111 and 11:00 and also 11 it is all about different combination of ones

Blues August 24, 2019 - 3:56 pm

The number 11 gets on my nerves every time I see it. At first it was weird then my friends and I would make jokes about it but now it comes up to many times. I just laugh now. Ridiculous.

Dianne January 18, 2020 - 7:16 pm

I’m seeing 11:11,
Etc on the clock a lot. It started when my Mother Passed swag. I feel like it’s her telling me something

Emma September 8, 2019 - 6:01 pm

Yes! These numbers are sent to us for a reason– they are here to guide us and help us choose when we’re confused. Although our experience with these numbers aren’t exactly the same, the number 111 can mean ‘spiritual awakening’ in most people.

Ignas September 18, 2019 - 4:54 pm

All this yea keep seeing numbers 23 32 33 333 some days more frequent some less. Some weeks every day.
Like geing in my car in the morning or arriving to someplace, but very often when I sit in my car.
Sometimes I wake up at night look to my phone and see xx:33 or xx:32
Frequently on documents, the shop receives or making chores at supermarket and price pops up xx.23 or xx.32, etc.
Today I sit into my car was 16:23 while driving home seen two cars with 333 plates one with 32 and two with 23 ohh and a taxi come out in front of me with license number 632. I felt very humbled and said thank couple of times whatever this means and felt shivers going through my spine which felt good.
Actually a bit confused and happy to find this website. The best explanation I found so far. Coincidence? 🙂

Thank you

peter July 27, 2021 - 7:53 pm

Tyrone February 9, 2020 - 3:51 am

I constantly see 11:11, 444, 888, 777, 1234, 1212 …repeatedly …my frequency is so strong I can literally hear it …like a constant high pitch tone for years …I believe the universe and my frequency is uniting, plus im constantly seeing signs of large quantities of money, nice cars, huge beautiful houses …I believe the holy spirit is guiding my eyes to show me whats to come in my life and many that im connected to.

janice February 22, 2020 - 8:57 am

I have been seeing 1248 since I was 17, I’m 36 now. I felt such a strong bond with the figures that the number started to pop up in airplane tickets, codes, train tickets, license plates, I could carry on until one day I decided to buy a local lottery ticket and after 11 year of playing with the same number it came out and I won….. everything around this number just makes me feel so comfortable wanted it’s a very peaceful particularly sensation but it’s mine and so I tattooed it when I was 25 and I just feel home with it .

Chrisabelle Maderazo April 15, 2020 - 5:25 pm

Sometimes I’m seeing numbers 1:11, 11:11, 3:33, 4:44

Francine April 27, 2020 - 5:50 pm

Since 9/11, I see 11,s everywhere, all the time. I also see 1011’s. In the last few years, I’ve started seeing the auras of certain people. It’s all so cool, but unnerving at the same time. I don’t know what to do with it all. I like the suggestion of paying attention to what you are thinking about at that moment and tuning into your heart. I’m going to be mindful of these signs and try to apply them to my life.

Juju Teton April 28, 2020 - 4:21 pm

see signs come to me in a letter form on t.v. billboards. Books. Etc. What does that mean?

Daniel May 16, 2020 - 1:45 pm

Hi there…I’m Daniel, no wonder there are lot of ppl looking at these repeating numbers. I was amazed at all these and was questioned myself and tried approaching others even.
I always see 10:10, 11:11, 12:12, 1:11, 222, 333, 444, 555, 123, 1234, almost everyday nowadays.
In fact my daughter born on 11-11-11.
And I missed my wedding date by a day..04.05.05.
Please do let me know Watz this…Is it good or bad..I read about spiritual awakening and some times for good purpose and reasons. And by God’s grace I’m also God feared person. Please do mail me about this.

Mark Albany October 9, 2020 - 5:41 pm

I’ve been seeing recurring numbers, repeating time and mirror time since last November. It has made me see that I am on the right path and that something special is heading my way. I now know that we are never really alone in the universe and that there is always someone looking out for you.
This awakening is happening to so many people right now and I think that is special thing.

Bik October 21, 2020 - 12:15 am

Since I was child i see 11:11, 12:12, 0:00. I don’t know meaning. After this text I will pay attention.

ange November 4, 2020 - 12:26 pm

I’ve been seeing 1:11, 03:03, 4:44, 11:11, 09:09 and so on, literally all repeated numbers on the clock all the time, for over a month now. There is no logical explanation on google, my friends are mocking me, and it’s starting to annoy me how often it occurs. I’ve even started screen shotting my lockscreen every time it happens. Even when people message me, it often says they did so at 1:11, 14:14 or some other repeating number. Tonight on Nov 4 i looked on my phone at 4:44 am, yesterday the alarm rang after snoozing at precisely 9:09. This blog post has been the only not too weird sounding explanation, apart from me looking too often at the clock. I think I’m losing my mind.

Leila November 4, 2020 - 8:54 pm

Thank you for sharing your experience with these numbers. It s very important.

Shane January 11, 2021 - 2:38 pm

Ive been seeing 7:28. It’s been so mi h more frequent that I’ll point it out to whoever I’m around when I see it and it’s freaked out a few of my friends and family members cause it’s happening that often. It’s usually on a clock. What are the odds of glancing at the clock on the same exact time for a week straight?

Alan Young January 12, 2021 - 9:35 am

It’s amazing how it happens. When you see a number like that keep showing up, it’s time to pay attention. It’s an angel message 🙏

Laflare February 11, 2021 - 9:24 pm

I actually think I’m losing it all because I won’t stop seeing repeating numbers.
I have more than 1000 screenshots of recurring number and and times…. I’m glad I’m not crazy and not the only one experiencing this special effects of the universe. I always hope for the best every time I see this and I plan on making something special out of it all….writing this and I can see the time is 22:22 which is a manifestation of something great about to unfold in my life…. 💡🙏🏽

Marijke March 1, 2021 - 8:29 pm

This nearly made me cry… I’ve been seeing 11:11 for a while now, and during the past week I saw so many repeating or mirrored numbers like 14:14 or 12:21 it almost scared me. But during this period I also went through deep changes and feel like at this moment I’m more in touch with who I am and what I desire than ever before. I think I am in touch with my higher self and it wants me to realize this is a great new start in life and I will receive everything I’ve ever wanted.

Alan Young March 2, 2021 - 3:48 pm

Thanks for sharing! It’s amazing when we start getting these messages show up!

Silent Trigger April 15, 2021 - 8:12 am

I come across these aligning numbers in the weirdest ways , I can get a notification exactly that time , or I feel my phone vibrate in my pocket and check it’s 02:33 yet it didn’t , or I wake up and immediately I check the tone it a xx:11 or xx:55 ,xx:44 or xx:22 etc I could be playing a video game or watching a movie etc for hours and once I drop it to check the time it a xx:44 or xx:22. . I actually realized I have been passing through major changes as well ,losing a couple of friends and getting new ones . I started seeing these number since December, but I believe something great is coming cause the changes are very major . And I’m very sure it’s has to do with spiritually! Try analyzing if you’ve had some sort of spiritual encounter just before starting to notice these numbers .

Albert July 12, 2021 - 10:30 am

Since 12, I have been keeping on seeing number 59, up till now, am 27. Thank for enlighting me, I am now ok.

Sheryl Brown August 25, 2021 - 2:17 pm

I been seeing repeated numbers of 11:11, 1:11, 333.222.555 and even 804 which is my birthdate. I do know that i need to get in align with my spirit being but can anyone explain the numbers,

Emily August 28, 2021 - 4:28 am

Thank you for this post Alan I was always wondering why I would keep seeing 111 or 11:11 and thought there had to be more to it than coincidence. I have never really been into numerology but have always been fascinated by the spiritual and paranormal. Will definitely work on meditating and expanding my spiritual growth. Thanks again!

Gina Drew December 15, 2021 - 2:37 am

Thank goodness I’m not going mad !!
Worried so much that it may be a warning
Every time I happen to check the time on my phone it’s always 2.22 or 12.12 loads of different combinations but always sequenced and the same numbers

Akanksha December 29, 2021 - 6:34 pm

I felt the same way when the repeating numbers sought my attention. Up until recently I thought I was going so crazy that I would forcibly shut my eyes in traffic to avoid looking at the license plates of vehicles.
To this date, these numbers are everywhere. On receipts, license plates, traffic lights, clocks, number of likes or comments on posts, SMSs or notifications at 11:11 or 9:11. I thought I’d started obsessing them, until I heard messages in dreams, and started getting random visuals.
It is still very overwhelming though. Synchronities do not leave me alone.
