2Do you see numbers repeating themselves during specific times in your life?  Like when you’re making a big life decision, feeling stressed or stuck? Or do you see repeating numbers so often that it’s a daily or weekly occurrence?

A Number Message From The Universe

I’ve had people express deep fear when they see repeating numbers, as if they’re being targeted by an invisible force for bad luck or misfortune.  From a Numerological perspective, this couldn’t be further from the truth.  When we see repeating numbers – and notice that we’re seeing repeating numbers – it’s not just a little coincidence. Seeing numbers is a message to us.  It’s the Universe’s way of communicating through code – we just have to learn the code.  We might think of it like Morse code and being able to extract what’s being communicated through those dots and dashes.  It’s the same with numbers.

The common message when you see repeating numbers is this: We have a personal “Fan Club” of energies that are incredibly eager to assist, support, and validate us.  All we have to do is ask, set an intention, and be open to information coming to us from unexpected sources and in non-linear ways.  And sometimes we don’t even have to ask – they just show up uninvited!

4How To Spot Repeating Number Messages

What do we really mean when we talk about “repeating numbers?”  Let’s look at a few examples.

Birth dates

I know someone who sees his birth date (month and day) on the clock at least three times a week.  He’s an extremely abundance-minded individual and is something of a tour de force in terms of the Law of Attraction in action.  Seeing his birthday on the clock reminds him of his “mission” in life – it propels him to continue to do what he was “born” to do.

123 vs 321

How about the sequence 123?  Understand that the Universe attempts to speak to us as simply and with as much clarity as possible.  Yet we often like to complicate matters, don’t we?  So when we see 123, it’s as “easy as 123.”  We’re being told that we need to simplify something in our life.  We would benefit from delegating and letting go of anything that might be unnecessary.

And how about the opposite?  If we see the sequence 321 – which a friend of mine asked me about because she was waking up at 3:21 a.m. every morning – it could indicate that we’re making things much more difficult than they need to be.  What we resist will persist.


I saw the number 444 in my own dream the other night.  This sequence gave me the message that I have ample support from the Universe – that I’m loved, supported and divinely guided and have nothing to fear.  Often these number sequences show up when we’re having difficulties in a certain area in our lives and are seeking answers or validation.  I was going through a moment where I felt somewhat powerless.  Seeing 444 in my dream offered me a sense of relief that “all is well” as long as I continued to work toward my goals with concerted effort.


How about the dreaded “Anti-Christ” number, 666?  What does this sequence mean in Numerology?  Doreen Virtue says:  “Your thoughts are too focused on material illusions.”  Seeing this number indicates a need to raise our thoughts and actions onto a higher – more spiritually centered – plane in order to get ourselves back on track.


I’ve had several clients who frequently see the sequence 333.  This combination is the intense vibration of the 3 – which is about communication, joy, emotional sensitivity, and self-expression.  The 3 is also associated with the Trinity and with the Ascended Masters.  I have found that people often see this combination when they’re feeling free, tapped into themselves and to “Spirit,” and are really feeling as though they’re in their groove.


Of course the most common repeating number is 11:11.  There’s a lot to say about this sequence.  Briefly, the number 1 is all about new beginnings, independence, initiative, achievement, individuation, self-confidence, and innovative creativity.  So when we see this repeating number, it’s a reminder to focus on what we want rather than what we don’t want, because the energy of the number 1 expands what we repeatedly and routinely think about.  It’s indicating that a window of opportunity is being flung open for us – with this energy in our court, we’ll begin to manifest our thoughts and desires into reality with turbo-speed.  So the trick is to be disciplined and mindful about how we focus our thoughts.  If there’s any time to dive into the positive affirmation file, this is the time.  Don’t waste this valuable and high-powered energy.

And yet like all things, interpretation and personal experience is key.

How To Interpret Repeating Numbers “By The Numbers”

5Here is the foundation for reading the signs “by the numbers.” For example, if you continue to see the number 3 wherever you go, scroll below and see what the energetic representation of the number 3 means.

1 – new beginnings, focus on the positive, we’re manifesting what we think about so clean up our thoughts.  Oneness and feelings of unity.

2 – this is the energy of balance, partnership, of bringing masculine and feminine energies together.  Trust and patience is what is needed to resolve whatever situation with which we’re grappling.  Right action, healthy emotional boundaries, and love are required.  It can also be telling us that something in our life is out of balance.

3 – represents the trinity of mind/body/spirit.  It’s the energy of communication, joyful self-expression, and emotional sensitivity.  It’s telling us to live “in joy” as much as possible.  Many Numerologist’s suggest that this is a message from the Ascended Masters.

4 – this number indicates the opportunity to grow in perfect harmony.  Our guides are assuring us that they hear us and are helping and supporting us.  It can indicate hard work is needed to achieve a goal and that we’re either craving security or feeling boxed in by limitations.  The message:  cultivate flexibility.

5 – this is the number of change.  It’s telling us that change is occurring – and it’s always for the better and in line with our personal and spiritual evolution.  Embrace change, let go of the old, and tap into a sense of adventure.

6 – this is the number of guidance, duty, service, and love.  We might be feeling worried about something in our life when this number shows up.  It’s the Universe’s way of telling us to relax.   This is a message to take care of ourselves as well as we care for others.  Or alternately, it can be a message to us to step up and take responsibility.

7 – this is a mystical and “lucky” number.  It marks both beginnings and endings.  When we see this number, we’re being given the message that we’re on the right path and whatever happens will exceed expectations.

8 – this is the money, power, and abundance vibration.  It’s also the number of cosmic consciousness and Infinity.  If this number shows up it’s telling us that there is an endless supply of abundance in the world.  It’s telling us to step into our power and make it happen.

9 –  this number is all about completions, letting go of the old to make room for the new.  It’s about finishing, saying good-bye, and moving forward with open arms.  This is a sign to hop to it and get to work on our higher sense of purpose.  No indecision and procrastination.
