I've lost count of the number of people who have spoken to me about noticing the number 11:11 more lately. It all started a few years ago and I didn't know what to make of it so I put it to the back of my mind. However, in the last month or two, the occurrence of this number has increased in my own life and when one of my readers requested a post on this topic, I saw it as synchronicity... Time to find out what all the fuss is about!
Reading about 11:11 online, the most common notion is that people are starting to see this number as humanity awakens from its 3D slumber and becomes aware of the reality of Oneness (all beings are One).
However, there are as many theories about the precise meaning of this number sequence as there are spiritual teachers so the only thing I'm 100% of certain of is that it does mean something and logic dictates that it has to do with new beginnings as well as an Aquarian awakening. The 11th House of the Zodiac is the House of Aquarius and we are at the threshold of the Age of Aquarius which will last for approximately 2,000 years. Let's hope and pray that humanity will mature from its greed and collective insanity during this period!
In the Tarot, the Aces are the 1's and it seems to me that this could be a sign posts that all four Elements are lining up, presenting the beholder with an opportunity to start the next phase/chapter of their life. It's a sign and a gift from the Universe, letting you know that somebody is guiding you along your path and even lending a helping hand.
11 is the number of the Lightworker and some mean that 11:11 is the calling card of Earth Angels who are here to help people raise their vibration.
Those of you who are younger or who have teenage children are probably aware that many kids these days use the occurrence of 11:11 for wish manifesting. I'm sure it works too, provided the belief is strong enough!
Ascension teachers tend to associate 11:11 with DNA activation, while Angel people say it means your angels or spirit guides are trying to get your attention because new beginnings lie ahead.
People mainly concerned with finding their Twin Flame usually associate the number with Twin Flames.
So what does it mean then? Whatever it means to you is right. There is no universal right or wrong interpretation of this number sequence. The question this leads me to ask of the Tarot is why this has become a global phenomenon.
The first thing I notice here is that the card numbers add up to 11, with the Lovers being the sixth Major Arcana card. I associate both the Ace of Chalices (Cups) and The Lovers with the Heart Chakra and the Four of Chalices shows a young woman stargazing with her hands over her hearts. I think the message is clear:
In most people's hearts there is a longing for more connected living. We have all become alienated through industrialism, greed and gadgets... This is why more and more people are opening up to a new way of being and relating and there is no better symbol for this than 11:11. The phenomenon is an expression of a deep longing for more LOVE.
Because let's face it, those in the process of ascending aren't doing so because they are brain boxes - they are doing it because they have the courage to keep their HEARTS open!
The other question I need an answer to is what it means to me, personally. Perhaps you would like to pull a card (or more) on this too?
What I take these three cards to mean is that whenever I see the number 11:11 for myself, I'm supported on my Path of Service and I should pay close attention to my thought. These three cards total 9, the number of the Hermit. He is a teacher. I'm guessing I'm being activated for doing what he does.
If you pull some cards, you will be a doll and share, won't you?! :) Mwah!
