What You Need to Know About Angel Numbers

angel numbers

You look at the clock and see that it’s 11:11 in the morning. What are the odds that such a special number would be on the clock at the exact moment you glanced at it? Is the universe trying to tell you something?

If you believe in angel numbers, maybe.

Whether it’s a clock showing 11:11, a new address with the number 333, or a bill of $12.34, repeating or ascending number patterns like these are all known as angel numbers. They are thought to be messages from spiritual beings, trying to access our attention by using numbers that seem meaningful to our minds.

Have you been noticing special number patterns in your life? Or maybe you’ve been hearing about angel numbers and want to learn more of the theory behind it. We’ll help break down the top 3 questions about angel numbers:

What Are Angel Numbers?

In numerology, angel numbers are messages sent by angels, or even the universe itself, to the human world. Once the message is transmitted, it is picked up through the simple act of noticing. Celestial beings, according to this theory, use repetition to get people’s attention.

Numbers are a system that transcends differences in language, culture, and nationality. If ever there was a messaging system we could call “uniquely human,” numbers might be it.

Because our world is so full of numbers, any celestial being transmitting a message via angel numbers has a lot to work with. A common way people notice angel numbers is through the time of day. Most digital clocks have 4 possible slots for numbers, so there are various ways to use similarity and special patterns to get someone’s attention.

Other avenues for angel numbers might be the duration of a song or video, the bill for a restaurant or number sets used at work or school. Remember that angel numbers are thought to rely on repetition, so the same number might come up in a variety of places.

What Do They Look Like?

You don’t want to miss a message from the universe. Here’s how to recognize a few different types of angel numbers:

1. Repeating Sequences

If you’ve ever glanced at the clock at exactly 11:11, you might have a sense that this number sequence is special. Repeating sequences, the most talked-about type of angel numbers, are sets of the same number repeated many times.

These numbers, which can be thought of as the “classic” angel numbers, include 111, 222, 333, 444, and so on. The number of times this digit repeats doesn’t matter so much as the fact that it’s a noticeably repeating number.

2. Ascending Patterns

These patterns are number sets like $3.45 or 12:34, and their power seems to come from their recognizability as a counting pattern. While the digits themselves don’t repeat, these numbers may show up repeatedly, in different modes, throughout the day.

These ascending patterns may have similar meanings to the repeating ones. While some beliefs of numerology hold that each specific number sequence has its own meaning, other branches believe that every angel number pattern is just a means to an end. That is, these are all just ways to stimulate human attention.

3. Numbers of Significance

Another type of angel number that people have reported noticing is a number that holds personal significance. Whether it’s a birthday, a certain important date, or just a number that makes you think of something, this may be an angel number as well.

It may seem odd and self-serving to think that the universe will communicate to you using numbers that only you would find special. But remember that the significance of the number is not for the sender of the message, but the receiver.

What Do They Mean?

It’s hard to generalize an angel number meaning that will apply to everyone. While some people see angel numbers as lucky charms, others see them as more mysterious messages, urging their target to wake up and realize something profound about themselves.

There are also stories of angel numbers occurring to people who are going through a major decision. The sight of these numbers, supposedly, helps sway them in one way or the other. Some people believe that angel numbers will appear at a time in your life when a major change is occurring in your personal realm.

For those of you who’ve ever been faced with a difficult decision and asked the universe to send them a sign, angel numbers might be exactly what you were looking for.

However, like many things in life, what works for someone else might not translate perfectly to your experiences. Rather than asking other people what angel numbers have meant for them, take the time to reach inward and ask yourself what this number might mean.

Think of an angel number as a pager rather than a telephone. When a phone rings, picking up means an immediate connection to the message itself. But when a pager rings, all you know is that someone, somewhere is calling you.

And you better check who it is.

Sometimes, it can be difficult to do this spiritual work on your own. In order to understand what angel numbers may mean for your life, it might be a good idea to speak to a professional numerologist like Madeleine who can help you understand these numbers through your own spiritual lens.

Final Word

Angel numbers create unique moments in ordinary life that remind us that there may be more out there. They suggest a connection to the spirit world which we may have never considered before. Whatever your specific beliefs are regarding numerology, there’s no denying that angel numbers feel special or even lucky.
