What does it mean when you see 1111 everywhere? You look at the time and it is 11:11. You check out at the grocery store and the price is $11.11. You open a book and it is Chapter 11 on page 11.
At first, you think it is just random but when this keeps happening repeatedly you have to start questioning whether this is just random coincidence, or is there more to it?
The numbers 1111 or multiples of it – 2222 or 3333 etc. are very significant numbers in the field of numerology. Numerology draws on the relationships between numbers and events and how numbers relate to events and occurrences.
The numbers 1111 are also believed to be angel numbers and it is a number sequence that features prominently in astrology and many paranormal theories.
There are many more theories and possible explanations of the significance of the sequence of numbers 1111 or eleven eleven, but I would like to focus this discussion on an aspect of these numbers that relate to synchronicity.
What does Synchronicity mean?
The term synchronicity was coined by the analytical psychologist Carl Jung and it quite literally means “in time”. When you think of soldiers marching and they are synchronized we say that they are moving in time.
Synchronicity…means a ‘meaningful coincidence’ of outer and inner events that are not themselves causally connected. The emphasis lies on the word ‘meaningful’.– Marie-Louise von Franz
According to Jung, synchronicities are events that are connected to one another not by cause-and-effect but by some sort of meaningfulness.
Synchronicities are co-incidences – that is “incidences” that all happen together in time.
You think about talking to your sister and the phone rings. It’s her! You think about eating Chinese food and the doorbell rings. It’s your best friend coming over unexpectedly with Chinese takeaway.
You’ve been pondering an important business decision and a car cuts you off. It has a big bumper sticker that says “Just do it”.
These are all coincidences or synchronicities that we have all experienced. To your logical mind it has no real meaning or relationship and it can not be explained logically yet you recognize it when it happens.
Dr. Deepak Chopra calls synchronicity is a “conspiracy of probabilities”. It breaks all statistical probability.
Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.– Carl Jung
Synchronicity and 1111
The numbers 1111 or 11:11 or eleven eleven are often related to synchronicity because of the frequency with which this number appears.
It breaks statistical probability and busts the more scientific explanation that it is mere random numbers that have no more chances of appearing than any other sequence of numbers.
According to statistical probability, you should see the numbers 1234 as frequently as you see 1111.
Or is it just a case of you actually noticing 1111 more than you notice other 4 digit combinations?
There is no denying the fact that 1111 has a significance which goes back as far as the year 1111.
So what does it mean when you see 1111 everywhere? Many numerologists and spiritual teachers associate the recurrence of the numbers 1111 with synchronistic events in your life.
When you see 1111 everywhere it means that some synchronistic event is happening in your life (or is about to happen or has happened). It can also be a sign from the universe to guide you or provide an answer to some deeper questions you may have.
Most of the time, the number 1111 appearing does not have any synchronistic meaning in and of itself but rather acts as a “label” for you to recognize the synchronicity.
You might still have to connect the dots but this is usually something that happens intuitively.
You crash your shopping trolley into your soulmate and in the awkward exchange, you see the big giant clock display the time. It is 11:11.
You’ve held the intention to meet and attract your soulmate and this synchronistic event happens.
When you start seeing the relationship between these numbers and coincidences in your life you will start to understand how these numbers work in your life and how it communicates to and through your intuition.
What Does Synchronicity Mean Spiritually?
In some eastern religions, these synchronicities or coincidences are called “anonymous gifts from God”.
When you think back at your own life and the times when you experienced synchronicities it is usually at times when you were in the flow; times when you felt connected to your highest self.
Synchronicity is a state of expanded consciousness. It moves you out of the reality of the word dictated by cause and effect and puts you in touch with a higher dimension of life.
If you’ve been practicing the law of attraction and deliberate creation in your life then you undoubtedly experienced synchronicity.
You have an intention to attract and manifest something. You place your energy and your intention on it and the most remarkable events start coming into your life.
At first, these events or people you attract may have no real relationship to what you want to manifest but as it unfolds the magic starts to unfold and it becomes clear.
Without fail, when you want to manifest something and you truly tap into the power of the law of attraction, synchronistic events will start appearing in your life.
In every moment, the Universe is whispering to you. You’re constantly surrounded by signs, coincidences, and synchronicities , all aimed at propelling you in the direction of your destiny.– Denise Linn
What I find most fascinating is how creative intelligence works “behind the scenes” to arrange different events and circumstances in ways and means that I could never have thought of, predicted or planned.
On a spiritual level, synchronicity is your connection with your soul or your higher self. It is your connection to that part of you that is infinite and that is connected to the field of all possibilities.
When you have a synchronistic experience…
- It comes from your intention – either a deliberate or an unconscious intention
- It is meaningful to you and only you can really recognize its meaning and significance
- It is a joyful experience
- It expands your consciousness and you feel more connected to all of creation
- It enhances your intuitive abilities
- The more you have these experiences the more you notice it
While synchronicities are few and far between for many it is something that you can deliberately start to tap into.
It is nonverbal communication with the universe and allows you to tap into a world of infinite possibilities within yourself.
So, how can you experience these synchronicities more often? Here are 5 important ideas that you can practice to experience more synchronicities in your life.
1. Have clarity on your intentions
If you intend to manifest something, be very clear on exactly what you want. If you want guidance from the universe, be very clear on what you want guidance on. If you want guidance on a specific answer, be very clear in your question.
2. See the world as an extension of yourself
When you recognize the fact that you are intricately connected to everything and everyone you start seeing more of how everything connects.
3. Go beyond your ego
Your ego is designed to keep you where you are (keeps you safe). It will also prevent you from seeing synchronicities because it wants to wrestle back control.
4. See relationships as a mirror
What you see in other people are merely what you see in yourself. What bothers you about someone else is actually something that bothers you about yourself. When you start looking at relationships this way you start gaining more clarity about your life and yourself.
5. What does this mean?
When synchronicities show up or you see 1111 and you don’t know what it means, simply ask “what does this mean?”. Trust your intuition with the answer that emerges.
What Does It Mean When You See 1111 and Coincidences
In our everyday language, we talk about coincidences as random haphazard events that have no relationship. We tend to think of coincidences as events that are entirely random and out of our control.
In a perfectly ordered universe, can there really be any coincidences?
This entire universe operates by law. The precision of the movements of planets, the changing of seasons, the migration of animals and so much more rely not on luck, chance or haphazard events.
We look at these external laws at work and recognize this precision. We can send a man to the moon and time their landing within a few milliseconds because we know and understand the laws.
When it comes to events and circumstances we can not explain or comprehend on the same level we tend to throw our hands in the air and call it a coincidence.
This is exactly what Carl Jung was getting at with his theory of synchronicity. If you believe that life is something that is happening TO you and that you have no control over your life then your life path reverts to what is we call fate.
If you believe that life is happening FOR you, you see how everything has a purpose, how there are no accidents and that every event in your life is somehow related, created and guided.
When you see 1111, pay attention. It could be a sign and it could be that synchronicity is on your path.
Don’t go looking for it though and don’t be blinded by it either. It is but one of many ways in which synchronicities can occur in your life.
