Does it ever seem as if specific numbers are following you around? If so, you're not alone. The world of numerology is vast and complex and repeating number sequences are rich with symbolic meaning. So, if you're regularly encountering repeating numbers, you should dig into the symbolism of those numbers.

The Meaning of the Repeating Numbers

To understand what repeating numbers mean, you first need to know what each single-digit number means in numerology. Once you know the different energy vibration that each single-digit number carries, you can better understand what they mean when you see them repeating. Repeating numbers, called master numbers, are a higher vibration of the single-digit number. When you see any number repeated, it amplifies the meaning of the number. The more repeating numbers in a string, the more powerful the message.

The Most Important Repeating Numbers

The most potent master numbers are 11, 22, and 33. Some numerologists refer to these numbers as "The Triangle of Enlightenment."

Number 11

The number 11 connects you with your instincts, your subconscious, and knowledge without rationality. If you're seeing the number 11, the message is that the Universe is wide open to what you want, so focus on your vision. Eleven is the number most associated with the law of attraction and manifesting your dreams.

Number 22

The number 22 is the number of the master builder. It's disciplined, ambitious, and capable of spinning wild dreams into reality. When you see 2s repeating, realize your limitless opportunities, trust the Universe is cooperating with you, and begin making your dream or vision a reality.

Number 33

The number 33 is a combination of human and divine consciousness. It is a very spiritual number. When you see repeating 3s, it's a message to trust that the "force" is with you and you'll manifest your desires.

Where You Might See Repeating Numbers

You could see repeating numbers anywhere and everywhere; on license plates, billboards, clocks, books, busses, addresses, the side of a truck, a sales receipt, etc.

Repeating Numbers Appear Spontaneously

When you start looking for repeating numbers, you'll see them everywhere, but these don't count. Repeating numbers are only significant when they appear by happenstance. You'll be genuinely surprised, and a bit weirded out by their appearance.

Why Do You See Repeating Numbers?

Inexplicably seeing repeating numbers reveals something is happening that's beyond the veil of physical reality. When you see them, the Universe, your angels, or guides have subtly whispered in your ear to glance at something, perhaps a clock, a piece of paper, or a phone number.

What Do Repeating Number Indicate?

Seeing repeating numbers:

  • Indicate that synchronicity is working in your life
  • Is the Universe's way of directing your attention to a pressing matter or theme in your life that you may be missing
  • Is a sign of spiritual awakening
  • Is a wake up call to align your thoughts and desires with the powers of that number's vibration.

Personal Experience Is Key

Just like interpreting dreams, an astrological chart, or a Tarot spread, repeating numbers have general themes and meaning, but your own interpretation and analysis is everything. Personal meaning can only be determined through self-examination, courage, and honesty by the person experiencing the repeating numbers. When you see repeating numbers, ask yourself: "What exactly am I doing?" and "How do I feel and what thoughts are arising?" Then combine the numbers with whatever you're currently experiencing to create personal meaning.

Seeing Repeating Numbers Repeatedly

It could be said that repeatedly seeing the same repeating numbers means you're being sent a very important message you can't ignore. As an example, you notice that your ID for a new job, your address, and your birth date, all contain the number 33. This could be a sign that your new position will be a dream come true situation.

Repeatedly Seeing 11:11

Seeing 11:11 frequently begins to create synchronicities in your life. The concept of repeating number repeating was on center stage in I Origins, a fascinating film about reincarnation. In this film, a young scientist begins seeing 11:11 in many places. He buys a lottery ticket at a 7-Eleven and gets 11:11 in change. He glances at the receipt, and the time of the purchase is 11:11:11. A No.11 bus pulls up to the curb. The young man feels compelled to follow the numbers and eventually is led to a young woman who changes his life.

Repeating Number Combinations

Angel numbers can be combined. You can decipher any number combination of repeating numbers by following these simple steps:

  1. Look up the meaning of each individual master number separately.
  2. Add those meanings together to decipher your personal message.

General Example

Perhaps you're repeatedly seeing 11:55 pm on the clock. This would generally mean your angels are telling you of a significant new beginning and of the need to focus what you want (11) because huge changes are just ahead (55).

Career Change Example

Suppose you're wanting to change careers and decide to attend a conference. Immediately after purchasing your conference ticket, you check the time and notice it's 11:55 am. This could be taken as a sign that going to the conference will be beneficial for a change of career.
