The Secret Meaning of Numbers
Numbers have a way of taking a man by the hand and leading him down the path of reason.– Pythagoras
It was the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras who first popularized the idea that all numbers have different vibrational properties. Since then, modern science and mathematics have shown that the world conforms to precise geometric mathematical principles. These principles govern everything from gravity to the movements of animals and the habits of humanity.
It was thanks to Pythagoras’ discoveries about the world that the ancient system of Numerology was developed. Some scholars even believe that Numerology pre-dates Pythagoras and derives from the ancient mystical Hebrew Kabbalah which is thousands of years old.
Numerology is a system of divination that assigns various numbers unique meanings based on mathematical principles. According to numerology, everything can be calculated such as birth dates, names, and places to uncover deeper hidden truths.
11 11 Meaning
According to numerology, the number 11 is a “master number” which signifies intuition, insight, and enlightenment. When paired together, 11 11 is a clear message from the universe to become conscious and aware. Many people suggest that seeing 11 11 signifies that your spirit guides are attempting to contact you. In my experience, 11 11 seems to be the number of spiritual awakening, signifying that you are on the right path and your actions are aligned with your Soul’s purpose. In other words, seeing 11 11 is a good sign! An energetic doorway is being opened in which you will experience spiritual growth.
11 11 meaning in summary: You are on the right path and you’re being assisted by your Soul, spirit guides, and the Universe to consciously grow and expand. Pay attention, be aware, and remember to stay grounded in the present moment.

11 11 and the Spiritual Awakening Journey
Seeing repetitive numbers like 1111 is a form of synchronicity (or a meaningful coincidence) – it can be thought of as a wake-up call; a cry from your deeper Self to pay attention and be present.
In this way, we can see 11 11 as something of a meditation bell: you are being asked to tune into the present moment and the love/guidance that is always available to you. You are being asked to engage more deeply in the mystery and wonder of existence, understanding that there is an Intelligence much greater than yours at play.
Seeing 11 11, or any repetitive number for that matter is, therefore, an intrinsic part of the spiritual awakening process.
Not only does it instill a sense of curiosity and awe within us, but it makes us pause, stop, and question. Momentarily, we exit the asleep and trancelike (or samsaric) mode of living and access a more mindful way of being.
Therefore, if you keep seeing 11 11, you are probably undergoing a spiritual awakening process.
Other signs that you are “waking up” include seeing other spiritual signs and omens (like repeated dreams and animal encounters), experiencing heightened intuition, struggling with a Dark Night of the Soul, craving more solitude, feeling dissatisfied with life, and more. You can read more of these signs – and find out whether you’re having this experience or not – in our spiritual awakening article.
11 11 and Sacred Relationships
As we’ve just learned, 11 11 is a number connected to the spiritual awakening process.
Sometimes, part of that journey involves meeting your soul mate or twin flame – that is, entering a spiritual partnership (or conscious/sacred relationship) that is designed to help you grow on every level. If you have been looking for love and keep seeing 11 11, this might signify that your twin flame or soul mate is about to enter your life. Be open, receptive, and mindful of any signs or dreams that emerge during this time.
What Do I Do After Seeing 11 11?
As your consciousness expands, you’ll find yourself seeing numbers such as 11 11 more and more often. These instances are known as synchronicity because you are in the divine flow of life. Personally, I would see 11 11 and other repetitive numbers sometimes four or five times a day as I began to experience a spiritual awakening. All of these numbers seemed to anchor me into the present moment and the truth I was experiencing. I would always feel more grounded and lovingly guided during these periods, knowing that there was “something happening” beyond the veil of physical reality.
In order to make the most of seeing his unusual and powerful number, you might like to adopt a few practices:
1. 11 11 meaning and your life
2. Stay open and receptive
Ask yourself, “What does 11 11 signify to me?” In other words, when you see this number, how do you feel or what thoughts arise in your head? Your 11 11 meaning will often vary each time you see it. For example, one moment it might mean “pay attention!” and on another day it might mean “you are on the right path, keep going.” You might also like to try journaling about your observations to take these reflections deeper. Learn more about how to journal.
Be alert to new opportunities for growth. 11 11 often signifies that a period of change is about to start within you. Remember that all people, feelings, and situations that you come across are chances to spiritually evolve. Ask yourself, “What new opportunities or doorways are being opened to me?“
3. Remain grounded and present
Our tendency to live through the mind creates immense stress and anxiety. During this awakening period, try to stay grounded in the present moment. You might like to practice mindfulness, deep breathing, meditation, or other grounding practices to help you stay centered. The more present you can be, the more you will be available for growth. When you don’t stay grounded, you might miss the message that is being offered to you.
4. Show gratitude
Life responds positively to gratitude. Even the simplest act of giving thanks for what you have and the guidance you’re receiving, uplifts your spirit immediately. Being grateful opens the heart, and when your heart is open, it is ready to expand. As a result, gratitude helps you to more deeply integrate the messages and lessons of 11 11.
5. Ask for guidance when needed
All of us, no matter who we are or what period of life we’re in, need help. If you need advice or help, reach out to someone you trust. Speak with a close friend, family member, spirit guide, or best of all, your own Soul. One of the simplest but most effective ways to receive guidance, in my experience, is saying a prayer. Address your prayer to whomever or whatever you believe in, whether that be God, Goddess, Allah, Krishna, Life, or Spirit. I prefer to address my prayers to my Soul. Seeing 11 11 is often a sign that you need to reach out for support and connection.

Have you seen repetitive numbers like 11 11 recently? I’d love to know what they meant to you. In what ways are they special to you on your spiritual awakening journey?
I’ve seen many numbers, which include 11:11 (when I first started becoming more aware. I still see it today), 222, 333, 444, 555, sometimes 666. I now see 1010, 777, 1212 and 111, 115, 511, and other numbers more frequently. Honestly, after deciding to tap into my beliefs and explore the unknown, my perspective on life has done a complete 180, and I’ve probably never been so at peace with myself before, not since I was a young child. I’m looking forward to what I can learn from here, and I’m learning more every day. Glad to see more and more people can relate XD
for many many years, I have always noted the time at 12:34 either a.m. or p.m. I’ve even written a story about. At first I thought I was just noticing the number sequence (1234) but it has happened far too often to be this type of coincidence. I have no idea what this means
Yes I do I see it daily regularly I see other duplicate numbers 222 444 1212 1010 1221 etc etc. I feel and receive help from sentient beings seen and unseen. They usher in a new way of being, an awakening actually that connects me to self and the oneness of everything.
Luna, please help me, I am in a mindfuck right now:
I had been gaslighted by my ‘friend’ for a good 2 or 3 years but had only found put recently in introspection due to him separating with me because I had felt so unloved and unappreciated by this person to the point where I just broke it, I became borderline selfish, impulsive and insane person who did something wrong, something so wrong and disturbing; I am too ashamed to even realize the notion of it.
I am at fault yet I am not, a rather strange paradox. Please help me out here. My contact with this person has been as I am rebuilding myself (hence introspection).
I know what I should do but I don’t think I have the strength to do it. It’s getting into me.
A little while ago I saw 11111 on the dashboard of my car (the amount of km I had driven in my car). I also have seen the clock saying 11:11 and indeed: it feels different from seeing any other time. I thought it was because of the fact you see something peculiar, not that it had a special meaning. I also really like what you said about that all people, feelings, and situations that you come across are chances to spiritually evolve. Yesterday my husband and I sold two of our beehives to two other beekeepers we had never met. And those men went on and on about who well they knew how to keep bees and they were throwing advice at us and not even listening to what we were saying. It was all about competing for them, showing who’s boss. My reaction was to simple acknowledge their tips and not make a competition about it. My husband on the other hand tried to convince those men of our capabilities. I did not feel the need to convince anybody of my expertise as a beekeeper. My husband and I talked about this situation on the way back in… Read more »
Yes I actually do keep seeing this number especially on clocks. I was at a shooting range yesterday morning ( we were in slot 11, no kidding). After, I checked my email and saw this article 11:11 from you guys. Haha very coincidental 8)
Constantly… combinations of 1s and 2s. 1212, 2121, 121, 212, 1111, 2112… it seems endless. For years these numbers have haunted me, and continue. Lately even more intense, and yes it seems as though something is near, almost tapping gently as if to keep me aware and more observant, and it seems strange… but it also makes me feel a little giddy. As if something happy is happening, or something exciting is near.
I have also heard it is a Twin Flame number. I was born on the 11, my twin at 11:11. If I add the digits of his birthdate, they add to 11-which is my birthdate. And he told me he wasn’t ready for a serious relationship on Nov. 11 or 11/11.
I also see many numbers followed by 11; 111, 211, 311, 511, etc. As well as many other numbers-e.g., my Twin’s birthdate or the numbers in his birthdate.
I was born on a day 11 and the number always had a special meaning to me :) Curiously, every time I started a new school year or even changed schools, my first class or my admission class would always take place at the classroom number 11, in whatever school I was in at the time :) Not exactly 11 11, but still has a special meaning to me :)
I’m not “haunted” by 11 11, but by 22 22. I often see this number on digital clocks, and I was born on the 22.02.2002.
