You do not need to believe in angel numbers, Divine guidance or even synchronicity to understand the value of seeing repeating numbers in your life.

Over the centuries there has been many associations to numbers, what they mean and how they ‘encode’ messages.

Numerology and mathematics just goes over my head.

Your journey of uncovering the meaning of those numbers is part of the reason why they show up in your life.

For most of us, when we keep seeing repeating numbers you have to start wondering why. It can not be coincidence and like all synchronistic events, they are significant.

You will not be seeking an answer as to why I always see 1234 on the clock if you did not have some belief that there was a deeper and more meaningful message behind it.

Trust in that and allow yourself to be guided for YOUR answer to be revealed to you.

I will cover some of my own unique insights into the numbers 1234 below and I trust that you will be guided to find what you need to know right now.

I Always See 1234 On The Clock…Why!?

The number 1234 represents a sequence of the first 4 numbers in the alphanumeric sequence. It represents a basic numerological sequence of progress.

It also represents the very start or the beginning of something.

While this may seem like a very simple and straightforward interpretation it has a much deeper meaning. When you see numbers repeating over and over again in your life then it holds some special meaning – a message for you.

You and only you will know if it’s significant – if it is a synchronistic event because it really ‘speaks to you’. The mere fact that you keep noticing it amongst a million forget things going on around you is very significant in itself.

The number 1234 also holds significant meaning in numerology. It is what is known as a full circle number because when you reduce the number 1234 the result is 1.

This relates directly to the idea of a new beginning, a fresh start and wiping the slate clean.

If you keep seeing the number 1234 everywhere, especially seeing 12:34 on the clock every time you look, then there are 4 main reasons why you see it.

I always see 12:34 on the clock because…

I Am having a fresh start. When everything in your life seems to be going ‘wrong’ it may well be that everything is in fact going ‘right’.

You may just not be perceiving things in the right way.

Seeing the numbers 1234 can be a reassuring sign that even though it may appear for things to be going wrong, there is something deeper at work.

You can not have a fresh start when you are bound by the things from your past and even your present.

Trust. Let go and just allow the universe to unfold.

I need to simplify. It’s easy to overcomplicate things. In fact, the more you try to be in control of your life the more complicated it gets.

Seeing 1234 is a message of simplification. Go back to the basics.

No matter what you want to attract or manifest, it is as simple as 1,2,3, 4.

Declutter your entire life. Get rid of everything that is excessive in the sense that it has no real purpose in your life.

Let go of ‘things and stuff’ that you do not need. Let go of relationships and friendships that drag you down.

Refocus your life on that which is most important to you. Sit down and really figure out what;s most important to you and shift your energy and attention to that.

Do not let distractions steal your best life from you.

I need to focus on what’s next. We all tend to live in the future to some extent. Our society’s obsession with material possessions and security causes us to become overly concerned about tomorrow, next month or even next year.

When you always see 1234 then it really calls on you to get back to the present moment.

In our pursuit of some non-descript future we tend to overlook what;s in front of us.

The result is that you never really live your life in reality. Be here now is not just some nice book title. It is a profound truth that can transform your life.

When you are really present in your life; when your energy and attention is 100% here and now then you perceive life very differently.

You tend to worry less. You tend to be more grateful and you experience more love and joy.

Focus on what’s next. Take things one step at a time.

As you do this, the next step will unfold.

When your focus is always 10 steps ahead you often miss the steps that are right in front of you.

I always see 12:34 on the clock because…

I need to forget about success and achievement and focus on progress. We tend to have goals and we also tend to think that once we reach that goal we will be happy.

This is human nature.

We see what’s lacking and we attach our unhappiness to it.

The reality is that you can do everything your heart desires right now, in 6 months time you will have a whole new ‘shopping list’ of what will make you happy.

Just look at some of the wealthiest and most successful people. Are they the happiest?

Having what you desire is not the recipe for happiness.

What we all really strive for is progress.

Making progress is what makes us happy. Feeling that we are progressing, advancing and evolving is what truly satisfies us and what gives us that inner sense of happiness.

Seeing 1234 as a sign calls on you to take note of this fact. When you focus on making progress every day in every area of life that matters to you, then you become detached from achievement and success and all those external ‘carrots’ that drive most people to exhaustion.

Focus on the next step. Focus on making small bits of progress every day. You will be amazed what you can achieve over time.

What Should You Do When You See 1234 Everywhere?

So, what do you do when you see 12:34 on the clock yet again? As human beings we are action-orientated.

We want to ‘do something about it’. Rarely would repeating numbers compel or guide you to go and do something specific.

Although it could, there are no absolute meanings inherent in certain numbers to get you to take some specific action.

If you’ve been contemplating certain courses of action then you may receive clear guidance through synchronicity and seeing numbers but the number 12:34 certainly does not signal you to ‘start over’ as many would suggest.

When you see your number 1234, here’s what you can do:

  • Recognize the number. Notice it and pay attention – even if it’s just for a few seconds. This way you acknowledge that you received the message.
  • Acknowledge the feeling. Pay attention to that ‘Kundalini’ feeling when this happens.
  • Pay attention. What is on your mind when you see the numbers? What pressing question has been circling in your life? What is it that you’ve been seeking help or guidance with?
  • Notice what happens next. What happened shortly after you saw the numbers? Sometimes this can hold a great meaning and seeing the numbers can be a precursor to something coming into your life.
  • What complex issue are you grappling with in your life? The message here is to simplify it.
  • Ask for insight. If you are not sure what the numbers 1234 mean when you see them, simply ask. Just say: ‘what is the message here? What do I need to know now? Then, listen to your intuition. Be still and quiet your mind. The answer will reveal itself to you.’
  • Be grateful. With any sort of synchronicity in my life I revel at the opportunity and I am deeply grateful for it. These are the rare moments in life when you make conscious contact with the spiritual dimension of life.

Not every number you see has a significant meaning that relates to the number itself. Sometimes, seeing repeating numbers over and over again are nothing more than signposts that act as beacons along your journey.

It’s there to direct you along a path more than ‘telling you’ specific details about the path.

No matter what numbers you keep seeing, there is ALWAYS a good feeling that comes with it. It’s often just a split second but there is that warm feeling – a feeling that you are not alone.

This in itself holds real value for me.

We often feel alone and lost – especially when things are tough. Just that knowing that you have Divine guidance available to you at all times is not only reassuring but deeply comforting.
