Angel Number 11:11 on Lightning SkyIs there a Spiritual Meaning to the Number Code (Angel Number) 1111?

Many people think so!

If YOU keep seeing repeating numbers wherever you go, then it’s hard to believe that frequent sightings of 11:11, 1234 and even 911 are mere coincidence. Sightings of 11:11, in particular, are being reported by thousands of people across the world, and are seen as spiritual signs of anything from angelic protection to twin flame alignments … and all shades in between!

But what about you? Do you keep seeing 11:11 on clocks and digital displays, blinking back at you when you’re drawn to look over? If the answer is yes, then read on to discover what Angel Number 11:11 could mean for you…


One of the first people to start publicly interpreting the meanings behind number sequences was former Hay House author Doreen Virtue. As a medium who channelled angelic insight, she knew that Angels are the messengers of Spirit (or God, the Goddess, the Universe, whatever word you wish to use…) Doreen Virtue knew that when certain number codes appear in plain sight, they are actually sacred symbols coming from the Divine. Repeating Number sequences like 11:11, 1212 and 911 are actually designed to catch your attention, to break the spell of the material matrix and to draw your attention into the divine and present moment. Angel Numbers are like prayers from above, requests for attention and intention. but once you know some basic numerology, you can do this too. (We’ll give you a free gift at the end of this article to get you started!) Many people even use number patterns as a means to connect with guardian angels on a regular basis … this is also something you can do, too.

What does 1111 actually mean, for you?

Here are 5 Reasons YOU keep seeing Angel Number 1111, and the spiritual meaning behind this incredible powerful number code.

11:11 – A Sign of Awakening

Angel Numbers 11, 111 and 1111 are often perceived with increased frequency when people are just embarking on their spiritual journey. They’re a sign of awakening, almost a symptom of your stirring, rising consciousness.

Angel Number 1111 has become closely aligned with the evolution of human consciousness as it symbolises the connection between Earth and Spirit, the physical and energetic worlds. So when it appears in your life (when it shows up on our calendars on November or January 11th, during an 11 Personal Year; in your personal Numerology chart, or in everyday life on car licence plates or digital displays, for example) it serves as a reminder of the rise to ascension we are all making.  11:11 is a truly powerful, sacred sign of reinforcement and encouragement, a nod from the Universe, that you’re on track, you’re walking the right path and just need to keep on going!

But it is also a means of accelerating the natural evolutionary process. When Angel Number 11:11 appears in your life, you also have an opportunity to make a leap in human consciousness, either personally OR (in the case of an 11 Universal Year, for example) collectively.  This is why it is vital to pay attention to your thoughts and feelings when this number shows up, for it is usually an indicator that you are on the brink of an energetic shift.

Often, the presence of 1111 coincides with other synchronicities and signs too, and their sightings in your life become closely tied to other things too. Together with other intuitive knowings and strange ‘coincidental’ happenings, the presence of 1111 can quite quickly become another of many “proofs” there is more going on behind the façade of reality than appears.

11:11 – A Glitch in the Matrix

We live in a digital world. Although we may not want to admit it, most of us in the West have become inseparable from our digital technology – our iPhones, digital alarm clocks, online calendars, email and social media – so it makes sense for this to be one of the languages that the Universe uses to communicate with us. Angel Numbers like 1111 are viewed by some as ‘glitches in the matrix’, as openings or portals in the digital landscape, that our Angels, Spirit Guides and other Universal energies use to connect to us and pass us messages. As our dependency on these technologies continues, the 11:11 phenomenon will also rise from a solely “New Age” marvel to something the general population cannot ignore.

Perhaps in the past, our ancestors viewed flocks of birds, blades of grass or the way the shadows fell, as similar messages from God, but the matrix looks a lot different for us now, than it did for them.

11:11 – Make a Wish!

Even as children, many of us repeated the ditty, pressing each other to “make a wish” whenever 11:11 was noticed on the clock. But there’s more to this than simple childhood games. When you see 1111, it’s a sign that you’re moving into alignment, a sign that your awareness is momentarily synchronized – perfectly and precisely – with the world around you. When this happens, when you are fully present and your thoughts are not stuck in the past or flying far into the future, you have the power to consciously manifest whatever you put your attention on. So in other words, what you ‘wish for’ is in perfect alignment to be realized. What you desire, is being heard.

11:11 Your Twin Flame is Close

One more potent meaning that many people believe is contained in Angel Number 11:11 is that your  twin flame is close. The notion of Twin Flames is an ancient theory that each one of us is actually only one half of a complete soul, which was split in two, at Source.  Many believe that this is the lifetime each one of us will finally re-discover and re-meet out “twin flame”, and as such, the concept has a rising following in these contemporary times. It’s believed that when our Twin Flame crosses our path,  we will instantly recognise this spiritual twin as our soul kin.  Sightings of 11:11 are supposed to be signs that our twin flame is close, and we are soon to rekindle our connection with them!

11:11 – It’s Your Reticular Activating System

There is an argument that repeated sightings of 1111 are little more than your reticular activating system doing its job. The RAS is a collection of nerves in your brainstem, which filters out the things you don’t need to see, hear and experience, from the things that you do. Without it, life would be unbearably over-stimulating. But it’s also what makes our perception selective, and it’s why you’ll suddenly start seeing deals on summer breaks as soon as you’ve decided to book a holiday, or hearing a new song on the radio once you’ve memorized the tune.

It’s a system of self-validation, its one of the ways the world is able to make sense.

And it could also be the reason that 11:11 keeps showing up in your life, now that your RAS has learnt to look for it. DOes this make it any less significant? That is up to you to decide!

The significance and meaning behind 1111 are yours to discover. Where you place your intention, the truth will be revealed!

Do you have Master Number 11 in your Personal Numerology Chart?

In numerology, 11 is a Master Number. If you have 11 in your personal numerology chart, it’s mere presence in your life (and your conscious awareness of it) enhances the inherent power you have as master manifestor, because the numbers 11 (and 111 and 1111) accelerate the way your thoughts and feelings materialize outwards.

*This is one of the reasons that if you have the Master Number 11 anywhere in your personal numerology charts, (and if you do, you should definitely watch this video!) you need to strive to tune into your own unique voice, because your original thoughts are exactly what most needs to be manifested into our collective reality.
