Repeating numbers – what they mean

Do you see recurring numbers everywhere, like 11:11 or 333, and wonder what it means? While angel numbers are an invention of the New Age, spotting recurring numbers does have a deeper meaning beyond pop spiritual culture.


Before the internet, before Doreen Virtue, before Solara An-Ra invented the whole 11:11 fantasy with her book in 1992, there was Carl Jung.


He believed in synchronicity. Messages from the universe, that he felt we were all part of. He saw the divine in everything and was endlessly awed by the symbols the world guided us with.


But Carl Jung didn’t invent synchronicity, the universe did.


We are hardwired to notice patterns.

Historically, we evolved by looking to signs from the wind and clouds to predict the weather. We charted the stars and the sun to know our selves and our seasons.


We depended on observable information. This is the basis of omens, auguries and why such great monuments to the sun and stars were built like Stonehenge, and New Grange.

At the very heart of it is pattern, and our ability to observe. Whether it’s the sun rising at a certain angle each solstice, or the way birds fly overhead foretelling the coming of winter, we have observed repeating patterns to live and worship by.


Recurring numbers are nothing new, but they have meaning.

Anyone can divine their meaning, because we’re all human with the gift of seeing and knowing. Even if we’re just awakening to our extra sensory awareness, spotting repeating numbers is usually one of the first things noticed as our awareness grows beyond every day survival. If you are interested in spiritual growth, sharp observation is going to be a key skill.


Noticing patterns just means you’re waking up.

Carl Jung was awake. He knew we all swim in the same magical energy soup that makes the universe. It is part of us and we are part of it and we share the same atoms as the stars.


It’s this connection that supplies the magic for recurring numbers. When our awareness rises beyond survival and what’s on our phones, we become aware of a greater dance. As we do, like in quantum physics, the greater dance becomes aware of us and signals hello with repeating numbers, synchronicity and other divine messages.


All we have to do is be awake.

We’re always connected and we’re never alone and we’re always loved by the universe. But we get bogged down by our day to day lives and forget to look up once in a while.


Next time you see recurring numbers – celebrate!

Know that repeating numbers are a message and confirmation of your growing awareness and to keep paying attention. No need to rush off to Google for the answer, because you already have it – it’s your beautiful soul glowing brighter, and another step on the spiritual path.

Explore that feeling for a few seconds.
This is the language of Spirit. Connecting back to a wider perception ad understanding of who you really are as a person, as a soul, as a integral part of the universe.


Because that’s what recurring numbers mean: you’re paying attention.

Pay attention. Even now, pull your nose out of your iPhone. As I’m recording this blog post, I’m out walking. Walking is how I write and it’s when inspiration strikes hottest. I wasn’t paying attention just now and nearly ran into a cyclist because my own nose was in my iPhone. That was a message for me to notice my surroundings.


If you hunger for something deeper, wider, more connected, turn your wise soul energy inward.

Turn that beautiful, valuable energy inwards to connect with your soul, and your intuition first. Use your gut, and your faith, and your feet to stay grounded to the earth and the huge source of psychic energy awaiting there. Draw that up with your next breath and allow the answer to arrive. Better than google, better than an oracle card, is your own wisdom.


Still Hungry?

If you still feel like you’d like more, be on my email list. We all have different gifts, from clairvoyance, which is the ability to see the unseen, to claircognizance, which is when you just KNOW something and you don’t know how you know it.

Semi fictional story about me

In 1994, I had a midlife crisis, got a boob job and moved to Byron Bay.

Quickly realized there was nothing there but more boob jobs and white furniture, so I escaped faux-spiritual beach culture, went to Peru, and experimented with DMT.

While in Peru, fell in love with a Shaman who was really a plumber from Padstow, but stayed because of attachment issues.

After following a puma from the jungle, I holed up in a Scandi-style Air B’n’B and finally got enlightened.
