Numerology is intimately connected to the world we live in today.

But not just within the natural world full of Fibonacci spirals and the golden mean, or the personal realms of Life Path and Destiny Numbers. But in the very modern, highly politicized human society that has been built up around us all. One of the very best examples of this is the number 911, whose resonance and frequency runs deep into the core of millions of people living today.

What Does 911 Mean to You?

Would you be surprised to hear that this number has been hijacked?

Like the planes used to attack the Twin Towers on that terrible day that not one of us will ever forget, this number has been adopted, abused and twisted until it has become something quite different from its true nature. Now, when you hear the number“911” said aloud what do you think of?


Destruction and death?


A very bad omen?

Or perhaps your first thought is of the telephone number to dial in an emergency? In the US, 911 is the emergency number, so it’s associated with the help and assistance needed when you’re unable to help yourself or those you love. It’s a number that brings a blessing but only after a huge misfortune.

Do you think it’s an accident that this number has been chosen to serve both of these purposes?

What’s really fascinating for numerologists is that as the number 911 becomes more and more strongly identified with trauma in the minds of regular people across the globe, it is also appearing with increasing frequency in our lives in completely different (and hugely positive) circumstances. Whilst sightings of angel numbers 11:11 and 2222 (and each subsequent repeating number pattern) are becoming commonplace for many people as they wake up, so are sightings of 911. People report seeing this number on clocks, digital displays, car license plates, printed cheques and receipts and in a slew of other inventive and unusual places every single day.

In fact, it’s almost as though the Universe is trying to reclaim this sacred number…

And using YOU to do it!

Many people call repeating number sequences “Angel Numbers” as they are believed to be messages from Spirit (or God or the Universe, whatever you want to call it) brought by Angels.

911 is a composite angel number, made up from the number 9 and the master number 11 (in numerology, master numbers are not reduced). And when 911 is combined, as we do in numerology, its sum is 11 (9 + 1 + 1 = 11.)

Let’s take a look at each of these numbers in turn and feel into their individual frequencies. This will offer a lot more clarity when considering 911 as a whole, and understanding the significance of the message your angels are bringing to your life.

The Meaning of 9

In numerology, 9 is the last single digit and brings the end of the cycle. It symbolizes fruition, fulfillment, culmination, and closure. It encourages us to reflect and integrate – the 9 is unique in that it contains every numbers that precedes it (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 45, and 4 + 5 = 9) and so contains all of their essence and frequencies inside of itself. Because of this, it’s a wisdom keeper. People who have this number in their numerology charts are often regarded as “old souls”. The number 9 offers the compassion and generosity that can only exist when one has lived many lives and gained many experiences. This means that the 9 often takes on the role of a spiritual teacher.

As the last numerological digit, the 9 encourages us to let go and move on. It requires trust – that by letting go of the past, new opportunities will come. It’s a spiritually connected number of great faith, so seeing it urges you into a place of surrender, in the divine plan and the sacred purpose of every occurrence.

It’s a sign that Angels and supporting Spirits are close. Do you feel them?

The Meaning of 11

In numerology, 11 is a master number. This means that it contains a specific potency, comprised of the higher aspects of the number 1, and the number 2 as a kind of base-frequency. It symbolizes a direct connection to Source energy, to spiritual awakening and it offers a bridge between the spiritual and material planes through rapid manifestation. It’s a volatile number which takes a lot of practice to master (those with the master number 11 in their personal numerology charts can and do face significant hardship in their lives, which serve as tough training grounds for this mastery!) but in its pure state, the 11 is divine and full of light.

The number 11 also offers unity, by combining the masculine and feminine principles, Whilst the 1 is initiating, pioneering and active, the number 2 (1 + 1 = 2) is sensitive, receptive and highly intuitive. This heightened perception is enhanced further in the number 11, by reaching extraordinary visionary and healing states.

The Meaning of 911

As you can see, the numbers 9 and 11 are both highly spiritual in nature.

They both have a transcendent quality: the earthly, matured wisdom gathered and held in the 9 enables it to rise above the mundane, whilst the master number 11 is a direct line to Spirit. Both numbers are empowered and inspiring, and both numbers encourage sovereignty: The 9 closes karmic cycles and therefore invites in the new paradigm, whilst the aim of the 11 is to be guided by a heightened state of awareness and light and not by the ego.

The 9 seeks to share its wealth of wisdom for the benefit of humanity, and the 11 offers a model of authentic individual expression.

So whilst resonating from different centers and with slightly different agendas, these two numbers deeply complement each other, so this number combination creates a potent force for change.

Because you’re seeing them together, their message is meant for you

If you are seeing the number 911 repeating throughout your life, the first message to take away is one of divine presence. You are being supported. As with all angel numbers, it’s an incredibly reassuring and protective sign, so try to feel this through every level of your soul.

But the significance of the energy and vibration held in these numbers could be read in a few different ways, depending on the circumstances in your own life.

Are you coming to the end of a cycle? Are you closing one chapter of your life, and opening a brand new door? If angel number 911 keeps showing up, then your Spirit Guides and Angels are telling you clearly that your journey is of huge and sacred importance and what you do now will affect great change for you and others. In fact, along with 11:11, angel number 911 is thought by many to be the number of lightworkers. So this is a sign to stay on your path, to keep doing what you are doing and follow the voice of your intuition. But importantly, you must be prepared to let go of what is holding you back. Make space in your life because what needs to move through you cannot, if you are holding onto old stories of what is true. A new beginning may be close, but you must make space for it to enter in. Your life purpose depends on it!

This angel number can often appear to those who have a calling to create something of service. It will appear as an angelic sign that your soul mission needs you to be generous with your gifts, so perhaps you want to write a book, start a vlog or bring a product to market? Or perhaps you have a skill which you could put to better use, benefiting even more people in a slightly different way? Seeing 911 can be a sign of powerful encouragement to spread your message to a wider audience: Humanity needs what you have to teach! As a number of spiritual insight, combined with humanitarian impulse, ask yourself, is this a clear message that you’re your time?

The combination of 9 and 11, two highly autonomous and self-governing numbers will often indicate that you need to trust yourself more than you currently are. 911 is a potent reminder that your intuition, combined with your life experience form a firm and trustworthy basis to work from!

So look inside yourself. The answers you seek are within you. There are Spirit Guides and Angels surrounding you, who are giving you all the signs you need.

Are you listening?

911: State of Emergency

It’s also worth noting that Spirit does understand the association that many people have with 911 and a state of emergency. Although it’s not aligned with the original, sacred energy of this number, it is a truth of our world today, so an alignment has been created. This means that often, angel number 911 is used as a call to action. The survival of Earth is being threatened, for so many reasons ranging from the environmental to the political. So seeing 911 in your everyday life can be a request for help and healing, from a world that needs it. Seen by many as a calling from the Archangels, if this number shows up, pay attention to the thoughts, feelings, topics of conversation, songs on the radio and any other information being released into the world concurrently. These could all contain clues as to the means and methods you need to employ, to offer real help to the planet, that you’re being dialed up to give.

When 911 shows up in your life, whether it’s on the TV, on the clock on your phone or anywhere else your gaze falls, its vibration surrounds you. There is no such thing as coincidence! So try to feel into the light and frequency of this angel number for yourself – embody its message and use these words as a starting point. The truth of it’s meaning is held within you.
