“11:11! Make a wish!”
I am sure you have heard of this saying. Maybe you have noticed when you see this number a lot, like when you put exactly 11.11 gallons of gas in your car. Or when you buy something and get exactly $11.11 in change. Or realize you have been looking at the clock at this time way more often. But maybe you wonder, “What does it mean? Where does this saying come from? Why should I make a wish?”
What is the significance of 11:11?
Some people believe that 11:11 is a synchronistic number; a sign that something significant is happening in that moment. You should stop and have a moment of awareness: what are you doing or thinking right now, what song is on the radio, what is happening around you? Pay attention and recognize the significance of the moment.
According to George Barnard, 11:11 is “the calling card for beings that are half angels and half humans.” If you are one who sees it a lot maybe it is a reminder of your true nature. Some people believe when they see this number that angelic guides are in their presence, so they stop and connect with them.
There is another theory that the brain, like a computer, relies on binary codes (1’s and 0’s) and that 11:11 is the binary code that awakens your dormant DNA and opens the subconscious mind. When you see these numbers could be a sign of a DNA activation or upgrade.
In numerology, 11 is a Master Number. It represents visionary idealism, intuition, and creative genius. When you see it, it can be a reminder to reflect on your spiritual purpose for being here.
The most important thing to remember is that 11:11 is a symbol, and like any symbol, YOUR interpretation is the only interpretation that matters!
Symbols are the language of spirit
Information comes to us in many ways, what we see and what we hear, and through communication via our language. But information also comes to us in subtle ways, through our emotions, through energy and also through symbols and synchronicity.
Find a Penny Pick It Up
What do you think when you find pennies?
How about white feathers?
Do you have a strong affinity for certain animals? Or collect items of a particular creature? Do you feel special when you see a butterfly, hummingbird or fox?
What about colors? When you see certain colors do you feel different? Do you gravitate toward some and not others?
These are all examples of symbols, and may have messages and meaning in them.
Symbols are a language of their own, and only convey their message when we apply meaning to them. For instance, when you see a stop sign, it is a symbol that has a specific meaning, and every time you see it, you apply that meaning to it.
Once you apply meaning to the symbol, every time you see it, you will have a point of reference.
So let’s say a stop sign appears in a dream or meditation, or you see it repeatedly in your environment during the day. You could apply the meaning of that symbol to something in your life or a situation and gain a deeper understanding. Symbols can be a way that our subconscious communicates with us.
Through history, prophets, shamans, oracles, high priests and priestesses, have been called upon to interpret symbols and signs into meaning. But you can do this for yourself. Build a library of meaning for the symbols you come across. Learning to become aware of when they show up, and understanding them as communication, can help you to improve your decision-making abilities.
Understanding signs and symbols provides an avenue for spirit, your higher self, or an entity from another dimension to communicate with you~they will now have a language to speak to you with.
Symbols become signs when they are repeated. When you see or hear something over and over, it is a sign that spirit or your higher self is communicating something to you. When you have a database of meaningful symbols and know what certain symbols tend to mean for you, you will know how to respond to the symbol’s appearance.
So start building your symbolic language and taking time to interpret the messages you may be receiving in this way.
So what does 11:11 mean? Well, when I see it, I take the opportunity to remember who I am as a soul and align myself with my souls code and purpose.
But the important question is, what does it mean for you?
Have a blessed 11/11!
Love & Light,
