In numerology, the 4 holds the vibration of materiality, physicality, practicality and prosperity. It expresses strong stability, which is revealed so clearly and graphically – and also so poetically – when the number is made physical (picture a square – the foundational shape of so much of our humanly-build world).
But when this number repeats and its frequency reverberates through your reality: When you see 444 showing up on car licence plates or mile markers on the road, then 4:44 is handed to you in change or appears at the end of a phone number, it’s significance changes. It becomes what many people (most famously Doreen Virtue) calls an “Angel Number”.
What are Angel Numbers?
The name alone pulls the attention to the Spirit realm: to energy, prayer and divine connection. It’s believed that Angels are the messengers of Spirit (or God, the Goddess, the Universe, whatever word you wish to use…) so when these number codes appear, they are actually sacred signs. Many people even use number patterns as a means to connect with guardian angels on a regular basis!
The Meaning of 4, 44, 444 & 4444
BUT… There’s no escaping it, despite your high spiritual goals and pursuits…You are a physical being! And Angel Numbers 4, 44, 444 and 4444 are all about this physicality!
You exist here on this physical plane, and all of what you feel, think and say out loud filters down onto this third-dimensional realm and manifests here for you to experience.
It’s not an easy place to be. It’s slow, it’s dense and can be as full of problems and pain, as it holds sunshine and joy (and the rough spots are really our best places to learn – it’s good to remember this).
11:11, Number Patterns and Waking up to Higher Consciousness
We’re currently moving through an incredible point in human history: Of collective evolution into higher states of consciousness. We’re waking up to life beyond the physical, to dimensions above the third…
The sheer number of sightings of 11:11 across the globe are not only coinciding with this mass awakening but seem to reinforce it. 11:11 is often one of the very first signs of ‘waking up’ from the matrix, catching a glimpse of that binary code of ones and zeroes, and seeing between the veils.

Repeating Numbers are also a by-product of our digitalisation, in turn an incredible platform and tool enabling us to share information about the energetic and spirit realms far more easily than our recent “civilized” ancestors could (or perhaps we’re just able to speak a little more freely than they were?) These are exciting times to be alive, that’s for sure! So it can be easy to think we need to rush fast in the direction of the astral planes, to explore, weave magic and connect with guides and angels, and spend less and less time present here in the world of flesh and blood, work and school and ‘ordinary’ reality.
But in fact, the very opposite may be true for you, especially if you have started seeing angel numbers 4, 44, 444 or 4444…
Can I focus on the ‘real world’ and STILL be ‘Spiritual’?
It can genuinely be hard to know how to do this without abandoning your conscious intent, so here are 4 unexpected things to do when you see repeating 4s, that are no less “spiritual” for their physical nature!
To embody the world more fully, you must first embody your own physical form as thoroughly and absolutely as you can. A quick body scan is a really great way to begin – close your eyes and run your conscious awareness through every inch of your body, from top to toe, checking for muscular tension, aching joints or any places that you feel uncomfortable or imbalanced. Work to rectify these sites of pain one by one using immediate and quick-fixes like stretching or shifting posture, or by going deeper with a course of yoga, massage or a regular exercise routine.
Yep, I know gratitude is a feeling, and not so much of a physical expression … or is it? In this case, using gratitude to receive the lessons of repeating 4s needs to be a grounded, physical experience. So put your gratitude journal to one side. These numbers are asking you to get out into the world and express your wonder and thanks for life by experiencing it!
Some quick examples of this are:
- Giving gratitude for your family, by cooking some food, and sharing an evening with them.
- Giving gratitude for your friends, by framing a photograph of you all and giving it as a gift.
- Give gratitude for the possessions you own by appreciating their beauty and usefulness, and Giving or throwing away those that you don’t appreciate and use.
- Giving gratitude for your freedom by exploring it – go and get lost in the woods, or walk up that mountain you only normally drive past in your car!
I’m sure you can think uploads more ways to enact your gratitude for life!
3. Focus on the Details
The devil’s in the details … and so is the magic!
Seeing angel number 4, 44, 444 or 4444 can be a sign that your beam of perspective is spread too wide, and you need to pull the focus of your attention back in. So you could need to spend some serious time looking at the finer details and the delicate minutia which holds the structure of your life together.
This may mean looking at how you manage your time at work and play. It may be a sign to dig into the details of a new project you’re bringing to life. It may mean going through paperwork, contracts and the officialdom required to keep modern life held together, or perhaps you need to take an honest look at where you’re spending your money …
4. Money Magic
The number 4 holds the vibration of prosperity. You may know that the 8 correlates strongly with wealth and monetary and business success, so it follows that 4 holds the foundational pieces of this state (and as soon as the 4 starts repeating – 4:44, 4444 – it forms an echo of the 8).
So one of the best ways to work with repeating 4s if they keep showing up for you is to pull out your bank statements, find your calculator and a few blank spreadsheets and devote an afternoon to delving into your personal finances. Peer right inside your financial reality, lay it all out on the table, inhabit it and make friends with the amount of money flowing in and out of your life. It may not feel glamorous, but believe me, this is how you will create the foundations for SO much more abundance to enter into your life.
