11:11 Synchronicity – Are you seeing it too?

“11:11, make a wish!” It is a phrase we may have heard before, but just what is the significance behind it? What does 11:11 mean when we catch it on our phone or a digital clock?

Besides being a number that’s associated with dreams and wishes coming true, 11:11 is the only time of the day (using the 12-hour clock) that all four digits on the clock are the same. However, it seems that some people can catch this magical time more frequently than others.


According to Numerology, the number 11 is the link between the mortal and the immortal; which explains the idea that when the clock strikes 11:11, a window to heaven opens up to grant wishes. Others connect 11:11 to simply a gateway or a synchronistic portal of any symbolic type.

Is 11:11 a mere coincidence or is there something bigger happening here?

Using logic and science behind this phenomenon of people repeatedly seeing the same number, we end up with three reasons — chance, predisposition, and acceleration. Using illogic, we end up with another reason — synchronicity.

Chance just means you happened to see the number. You pull out your phone, and you see that the time is 12:12 or you have 22 percent power left, or you have exactly 3 hours and 33 minutes until your destination.

Predisposition means you are attracting particular numbers. Therefore, you see them more.

Acceleration means that, after seeing a number repeatedly and you start wondering about it, you’ll soon begin seeing that number more often.

Synchronicity indicates a powerful flow of connection between seemingly different people, places, things, and/or phenomenon that somehow surfaces as a number or number series.

Now that we have an understanding of these four factors, we can begin to go deeper into strange digital occurrences.


Numbers are all around us, on our receipts, at your favorite store, in the car, on your phone, social media and a ton of other things. Unless you have bad blood with a certain number, there’s a good chance that you’ll encounter every one, two, three or four digit number possible. Nevertheless, certain numbers stick out, such as 11:11 or 1:11 or 2:22 or something similar.


For whatever reason, you have a favorite number. You soon begin to see how that number plays out with other things in your life. Your favorite football player wears the number 81, and it is the first two digits of your student id or the last two digits of your cell phone number. You are now predisposed to recognize this number whenever you see it.


As you begin to see any particular number more and more, you soon start asking yourself if there’s something special about this number, I mean, why else would you see it so much. This is when the acceleration is triggered.

Our minds are always searching for answers to mysteries, and your subconscious will go into overdrive attempting to decipher this information.


The repeated appearance of 11:11 on your phone or digital clock could mean you are in the holy flow of synchronicity. Lots of great things are happening all simultaneously — like surfing a great series of moments of life. Remember, our digital system of time keeping and of counting time itself, is linear. It does not allow for the non-linear, irrational element of life to come in. However, numbers like 11:11, 4:44, 12:34, or 1:23 do allow the recognition of hidden connections between seemingly different aspects of life that if listened to may guide us to even greater synchronicity or even hyper-synchronicity — an essential part of the magic of life.

“Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.” — Carl Jung, psychiatrist, psychologist, author (1875 – 1961)

Phone numbers that should never match but do throughout my life. Ex Mother in laws, whom I loved, matched with new office. Typically off by first 3 #’s or area code. My divorced parents of 40 years number matched. His home and her cell number. My mothers Birthday added makes my birth year. My birthday added makes my daughters birth year. My children’s birth times add up to the same number. Ect.

Deloris Hunt Kornya - October 25, 2015

Yes, I do believe numbers hold power. We can learn a lot about ourselves with numerology. Dan Millman has an incredibly helpful book on numerology and how it can help you discover your life’s purpose.

Koyote Wyatt - October 25, 2015

Since I realized the value of tracking patterns in awareness as syncronisities, and that they were a symbolic compass from the universe. I have been overwhelmed with joy, trust, and faith. As I applied the principle of following syncronicities my life has never been better, things happen, just the way I wanted them too. Now when I see 11:11 thats a secret message from the universe that I am on the right track and that I can expect best ever results right around every corner. I find just seeking synconicities, following them and trusting in them has lead me to the life I always dreamed of.

    Vivek Mehmi - August 1, 2016

    Amazing visual, and I agree 100%. why can’t we have what we dream of! and manifest that! beautiful

Charms434 - October 25, 2015

11:11 is really important to me. My mom since I was a kid would always say hi to her deceased mom at 11:11. I always said someday I’ll say hi to you mom at 11:11. Since my mom has passed in 2011, is be hear all day if I told you the odd occurrences that happen at 11:11.

Jonathan Sack - October 25, 2015

I have been observing these repeating numbers for over 15 years now. They definitely mean something in fact it’s something trying to communicate with us and it seems like its got our back. Most likely some kind of benevolent/positive alien/advanced type of being/situation or whatever. Here are some translations based on real observation not mumbo jumbo numerology/google searches/angel wada wada bla bla but actual real life observations of patterns. 44 or 444 which is almost the same kind of story but 444 is just amplified = very negative, 44 I’ll see when im trying to use the phone but I have no reception, I’ll see it when i’m trying to turn on the light but the electricity is off, I’ll see it when i’m going to the shop to buy milk but they out of stock. 444 I’ll see when driving through a red robot drunk as an example. 13 even more negative than the 44, 44 seems to say your doing it wrong, or something is wrong that needs to be fixed, the intentions are fine but the method is wrong something like that, 13 is pretty much saying what you doing is need to stop its bad and stay away. 33 seems positive, 11:11 very positive, etc

    Jason Vance - June 12, 2016

    Sounds more like your 44 or 444 is like the computer code of 404 “File Not Found”. Like when you navigate to website that is no longer available or does not exist. Also if you try access a file that may have been deleted or moved you may also get the 404 File Not Found code.

Mike Scott - October 26, 2015

Well, this is awesome, because I’m very much an 11:11 kind of guy. Saw it after one of my most intense and deepest meditations, and now a friend and I often message each other when it’s 11:11. Amazing. :)

moon - October 26, 2015

so what about 11 th november at 11:11 means?
and if we saw 666 any other meanings?

Patty Arroyo - February 27, 2016

I am a 11:11 kind of person, I see it quite often and all over the place, phone, clock, appliances, adds, etc..

Doug Wible - June 12, 2016

You do realize that numbers and time are human constructs, right?

Tanya Lancaster - June 12, 2016

I’m a frequent observer of 11:11.
But sometimes I wonder if it is just mental programming to look at the clock at that time, like waking up at couple of minutes before your alarm goes off in the morning, habbit, routine?

Betty White - June 12, 2016

Not sure
what I believe but the numerous times I see 1111 is too much to be coincidence.

Teresa McCormack - June 12, 2016

You still haven’t said what it “means” or how it can be used.

Joseph Rodrigues - June 13, 2016

I’ve been seeing these numbers for more than 15 years. I can’t really explain it to people but, they always get my attention when I am at a high point in my life or if I am doing the things I feel I should be doing. As a result, these numbers have taken me to amazing places in life, interesting life experiences and even grew my business. I am a very pragmatic and rational person and this is one if the few irrational aspects of my life that make a lot of sense and I’m sure it does to others who can relate also.

Rosie Velasquez - June 14, 2016

I have always seen 12:34 am and pm on a clock since very young. I used to wake up and look over at the clock like the attraction to the number is that powerful

Marnelli Jimenez - July 28, 2016

I’ve been seeing 11:11, 1:11 often too.. sometimes it feels creepy because for no apparent reason you will just look at the clock and you’ll see it.. feeling puzzled what it means and what does it wanted to say..

Jennifer - August 7, 2016

Do you think a certain persons presence in another’s life can cause them to see number patterns?

    Hayley - November 28, 2016

    Iv got a bad person around me and since i met him 3 years ago i started seeing 11!

    Hayley - November 28, 2016

    He came out of jail 6/6/16 im wondering if hes real evil! Hes around me terrorises me and wont let me go!

Leandro Cruz - August 7, 2016

95 and 356 I always see these two together always

Natasha muir - September 23, 2016

About 5wks bk a very close friend of mine started to notice only when she’s around me she keeps looking at clock an it’s saying 11.11 it’s happened often an sometimes all the 3’s on 2 occasions just as she’s seen it I’ve seen like a shadow but not of just head n shoulders if it was a man he would b tall an another time when she saw all the 1’s she sore the shadow of head an shoulders! Only momentary! No facial features but not a scary feeling! I was on Feb on news feed an someone doing a live angel reading popped up an at the end mentioned about the 11.11 thing may b angels! Connection to higher realms or wat ever it means to the person spiritually! This number occurance only happens round me an on many occasions I’ve been told by different spiritual position’s have said that they notice or sense I have the gift of an empathe! I’ve always known but it’s not something u run round telling ppl there think I’m crazy but ppl that know me believe! So since yesterday I’ve been looking into this numbers things! I do live an believe an trust my angels funny thing I rang the gal nearly he ago now to tell her wat ud found out! We got of fine an she rang straight bk an said when she came off fone to me she looked at time an it was 22.22 if that’s not sign enough to let her know personally I think to let her know to acknowledge this occurrence an see or feel wat this means to her! Others may call me crazy witchy which I don’t practice even though white wiccan is very spiritual an does not cause harm it’s same belief as angels everything’s alive! We all have these qualitys everyone’s born pure it’s being told an seeing an unpure world or stegmas of believing in different realms an angels! But with good can cone bad don’t b tricked by bad energy an keep God near cause ultimately he is the ruler of that is good spiritually an encourages not to play with bad energy or use it! So it will all start making sense if she encourages herself to find out wat thus 11.11 means to her! She’s in a bad bad place at mo an j hope this helps her recognize it’s time for change

    Hayley - November 28, 2016

    Hi im in a bad place at the mo! I have a ex that is voilent jeleous and wont leave me alone! I always know when something bad is about to happen bcos i start seeing 11 everywhere like 5 times a day! I also started seeing white feathers in random places just as i was thinking of him and i felt scared! But these signs i feel made me know my angels are protecting me and 11 is warning me !!! Because i do feel protected and these r signs to confirm im right. I have been in very dangerous situations with him hes tried killing me and im always safe! Hes tried getting ruining my job, relationships smashed a 5k car up but no matter what im always ok x im a lightworker always trying to help people for better lives, thats how i met him tried to help him with a drug problem! But hes trying to destroy mine. But bcos of the person i am i forgive people and always see the good and never the bad! This is the problem. I also studied environmental science went to uni to do teaching but he ruined that too. I dont want to call police on him i just keep thinking im fine im protected but think i need to take another route and after reading this about changes maybe its the answer! X

Sarah Yip - October 6, 2016

It’s absolutely a spiritual sign – I’ve studied hundreds of people who see 11:11 and have dozens of documented cases where it’s beyond logic or coincidence – see http://www.sarahyip.com/11-11-Clocks.html Thanks David for highlighting this beautiful code for Lightworkers and Starseeds – we see repeating numbers when we’re ready to wake up to our true, unlimited nature!

Ahsoka23 - October 10, 2016

Every time the clock strikes 11:11 I always make a wish.

Teresa Pedicone - November 7, 2016

I’ve been seeing the digital 11:11 this yr more than coincidentally. I rarely look at the time, but I always seem to look at that time! It’s actually freaking me out! That’s why I’m here. I am a very spiritual person and growing alot in my walk…so that must be why. I was just concerned maybe it is a warning of something bid happening on that date? Any thoughts?

Larry - November 11, 2016

This is so weird. I have been seeing 11:11 since I was young and thought it was just me. I will wake up at night and notice it. Or I will happen to look at the clock during the day just at that time. I’m glad to know it means something good. I have had a blessed life and things always seem to work out no matter how bad it gets.

Ana Pope - November 16, 2016

I’ve seen 11:11 for years now and it makes me almost uneasy. I started asking around if anyone knew the correlation, even asked my therapist and pastor. Most said it’s a spiritual signal and not to feel uneasy. Some outright said it was nothing more than an attempt for attention on my part. That’s pretty random considering I’ve seen it for years and never mentioned it because I didn’t want people to think I was”crazy”. I still don’t fully understand it but one thing I do differently now is look around at what’s going on at that moment. Am I supposed to be paying attention to something at that specific time? Will I see something that is helpful to my life or someone else’s? TBH, it started after 2010 when my mom passed suddenly and without warning. For a long time after that, when I saw 11:11, I said “hi mom” outloud. That’s the reason I hadn’t mentioned it for so long, didn’t want anyone to say it was a crazy way to deal with grief. Now, I just look around, pay attention to smells, who’s around, what I’m doing and the “ok wth” moment I get every time. I like the connection idea. I love people and I do believe some are more intune with the universe. Maybe we’re a special group of people and when the time is right, we’ll all have a role in something great. If anyone truly wants to talk about this further, please message me here in a response and we can connect on FB. I’m thinking about making a page on FB about it. There could be something great going on.

    TheObserver - December 3, 2016

    Even as just a reminder to be present and aware in any given moment is more than enough Ana ;)
