“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.” ~ Deepak Chopra
I believe that we are always receiving signs from the universe but are so out of touch with the true nature of the world that most of us don’t notice them.
If you’d have told me about signs from the universe and repeated number sequences before I had started to receive them myself I would have thought that you were talking a lot of hippy dippy BS or dismissed them on the basis that you were only noticing them because you were consciously aware of them. Now though, I know differently.
It started when I would repeatedly pick up my phone or look at the clock when it was 11:11, so much so that I actually googled if it meant anything. To my surprise I found out that it is a huge phenomenon. There were numerous blogs and articles on the subject and countless other people experience this. I also started to notice it in phone numbers, bank statements, apartment numbers, all over the place really. It was strange as I’d never noticed anything like this before and once I started noticing them they were everywhere, so much so that I couldn’t possibly ignore it.
So what does it all mean?
1) The Awakening Call
First and foremost it is a call to awakening.
Everyone that starts to become aware of this number sequence is usually on the beginning of a spiritual path or spiritual awakening. Think of it as a calling card if you will.
You start to see the illusion and delusion of the external and start to journey inwards to find truth and answers. They usually appear at a time when you’ve been through a traumatic event or when you come to the realisation that the constantly changing external world will not lead you on the path to happiness. It’s a sign that there is more to life than what we can sense through our five senses.
1111 is the doorway between the physical and non-physical realities of yourself and the universe, something like a portal or glitch in the matrix. We are being shown that what we previously thought was a truthful reality is a lie. It indicates that it’s the time to return to ourselves and our soul, to start listening to our inner guidance and to have faith in the universe.
If you haven’t start noticing the 1111’s yet then reading this blog may be the first step for your first calling and they will start to appear with great frequency.
2) Pay Attention
When you see this number pay attention to your thoughts that preceded it.
Quite often you will be having very profound thoughts directly prior to seeing this number. I keep a diary on my phone so when I have profound thoughts or realisations I journal them. When the 11:11 pattern really started speeding up for me I had massive realisations three days in a row at exactly 11.11. A really profound thought would come to me, I would go to journal about it and see that it was 11:11.
The exact meaning of the 1111’s will depend on your specific circumstances and what thoughts you have been having before seeing the sequence so bear this in mind.
Your own interpretation will be more accurate than what you will find by googling the number.
The number sequences then accelerate over the years and I’ve been going through a phase of 2222, 1444 and 333 for some time now. Once you see them they are everywhere!
3) Say Thank You
When you see the 1111’s or any other repetitive number sequence or sign stop and take a minute to give thanks.
Gratitude is one of the best and easiest practices to implement to increase happiness in your life.
Give thanks for the sign that you are on the right path, and thanks for letting you know that you are loved, guided, protected and cared for by something higher than yourself. It’s a sign from the source/ your higher self/ your soul/ God/ the universe or whatever you want to call it.
It is also the perfect time to set a positive intention for something that you want to manifest. The energy of the universe will always support you in achieving positive intentions.
4) Your Life’s Purpose
The 1111’s are telling you that you should have faith to follow your purpose in life safe in the knowledge that you will be supported.
It is a time of immense change and by following your passions you will find your purpose. You are being called to action and to align yourself with the positive energy of the universe. You are being divinely guided so take comfort in this. It’s a call that you have to raise your vibrational energy to align with the universal energy by becoming a better person and following your purpose.
5) We Create Our Reality
1111 is also a reminder that you create your own reality and that must take responsibility for this.
The reason you are where you are in life is a result of your past thoughts and actions. This is the time to start letting go of the past by forgiving, letting go of blame and shame and operating from a more compassionate and loving place to yourself and others. It is the time to heal any old wounds that will hold you back from developing spiritually.
In mythology 1111 signifies balance, connection and unification.
We are all connected to everything else in the world through an invisible web. The universal energy flows through everything and each thought and action affects the whole. You will be aware of the poetic notion of the butterfly effect which decrees that a butterfly flapping its wings on one side of the world can cause a hurricane on the other side. We are reminded that our thoughts and actions matter as they affect the whole so we should make them positive.
