1st Meaning of 1111: Pay Attention to Your Thoughts as an Opportunity Portal is Opening Up For You

What does 11:11 mean? The meaning of 11:11 is that the Universe has sampled your thought sequence and whatever you were intensely thinking about will manifest in your physical reality. So, if you are feeling really good about the thoughts you are focused on, rest assured that the thoughts you are sending to the Universe will soon manifest in your life. However, if you are having a thought that triggers an unpleasant feeling, you understand that you can shift your thought to a more positive one in order to attract a positive experience into your reality.

In this event, 11:11 or 1:11 is a message from divine angel beings that you need to monitor your thoughts with greater attention, and make sure you are focusing on the things that you want, and not the things that you do not want. In essence, your thoughts are a form of energy, and when you think, you are manipulating energy to transform your imagination into physical reality. Hence, a thought is a willful act and it is powerful enough for creation.

And during this creative thought process, you discover that you are always looking at the clock at 11:11 because you are magnetically attracted to a new opportunity that your soul is ready to receive. So, when you see the 11:11 numeric sequence, it is a divine sign that an opportunity portal is opening up for you and allowing your thoughts to manifest, whether you want it or not.

Overall, the meaning of 1111 is to pay attention to your thoughts. Most importantly, remember that you always have the Creator and your divine team of angels and spirit guides with you. So when you need their help to change unpleasant thoughts to more positive ones, all you have to do is ask. And in asking for help, you are learning how to receive.

Keep in mind, when you are open to receiving, you become a channel for all the blessings from the Universe to flow through you, and you start to notice the healing and growth opportunities that are all around you. In this way, the Universe is arranging people and experiences on your path to help you succeed, and ultimately, helping you "wake up" to who you truly are.

So when you see 11:11, be aware and open to all the blessings around you!

2nd Meaning of 1111: Everything is the Result of Your Thoughts and Feelings

The meaning of seeing 11:11 is that all the things that exist in your life are the result of your thoughts and feelings. Whether you think about the past, present, or future, you are using your energy to create a vibration within you that attracts things with the same vibration to you. In other words, when you spend time remembering the past, observing the present, or imagining the future, your specific thought activates a vibration that draws specific ideas, people, and experiences with matching vibrations to you. And in this way, when you see 1111 flash in front of you, the meaning is that you are attracting a certain financial, health, or relationship matter that you are mainly thinking about – to you.

By way of example, you can attract "financial lack" in your life even if you have affirmative thoughts about financial abundance because your thoughts of "wanting financial abundance" were born from feelings of financial lack in the first place. In this case, it's important to change the way you feel about your money situation so you can feel excitement about your finances rather than worry, because the "vibration of worry" can attract the lack of financial abundance.

For this reason, you understand that it is important to shift your feelings from a low vibration state of lack to a feeling that has a higher vibration, such as excitement. The key is to raise your vibration so there is an improvement in the way you feel. The more relief you feel, the more positive feelings you'll experience, and eventually, you'll reach a higher state of vibration so you can attract more positive experiences.

All in all, when you see 11:11, you understand that every thought you think is already an affirmation and you are simply "affirming" your truth. Because of this, it is essential to replace a negative thought with a more uplifting one. 

So, next time, when you focus your energy on what has gone right in your life, you can be certain to attract "right" to happen again.

3rd Meaning of 1111: A Deceased Loved One is Sending You a Message

What does number 11:11 mean spiritually? The meaning of 11:11 is to remember your deceased loved one, and the number code 11:11 is a way for a deceased loved one to connect with you.

Your deceased loved one may have attempted to contact you in other various ways, but one of the effective ways to capture your attention is with number sequences. So, when you are seeing 11:11 repetitively, your loved one from beyond is trying to give you a message. Although the meaning of 11:11 can relate to your deceased loved one's day of birth, time of death, or other significant anniversary or event, the important key is to be aware of the other synchronicities around you so you can recognize and understand the messages that are meant for you.

Whether your departed loved one was your parent, spouse, child, or other close family member or friend, they may simply want to let you know that they are okay. Other times, they may want to help you, to comfort you, or to let you know that they are with you. No matter how far you feel from your departed loved one, trust that you are being watched over, and most of all, trust that you are perfectly where you need to be at this present moment in time. And remember, when you see 11:11, you are in the presence of peace.

In addition to this, the death of a loved one can open the doorway to an awakening or arouse spiritual gifts within you. You are given a chance to transform and be reborn. In this sense, "waking up" becomes the last gift from your departed one. You begin to let go of old habits and beliefs to make room for a new life that is unfolding completely in front of you. By realizing this and taking the steps to become your True Self, you are honoring the life and memories of your deceased loved one.

So, when you see 11:11, it is a good reminder to stop and think of your departed one and treasure what your loved one meant to you. Cultivate the seeds they planted in you, and let their essence radiate from you. And above all, in the big scheme of the Universe, have faith knowing that you will be reunited with your loved one, once again.

4th Meaning of 1111: You Are on the Path of Awakening as You "Re-Member" Yourself

Whenever you are seeing 11:11 or 1111 number patterns, you are being called to awaken. Visually, 11:11 represents columns of gates; it is a direct channel that opens between your "human self" and your "soul self". Gateway 11:11 is the point of merging the physical and non-physical realities of the True You. When this happens, it is time to stop any ordinary activity you are doing and look at the big picture of your life.

With various cultures and religions on your planet, you realize that living among different groups of people is a blessing because it gives you the opportunity to get inspiration from seeing new ways of doing things or discovering needs you did not know existed. It is your connection to each other that reignites the fire in your soul and stimulates creative ideas to make significant changes for your world. For this reason, you understand that different talents allow you to help one another and appreciate one another in different ways. Most importantly, you realize that your differences help you learn how to understand, accept, and cooperate with each other. This key understanding helps you remember the importance of being connected in the same human family to progress and evolve as "one race." This is all part of the Universe's master plan. 

Taking it to a deeper level, you begin to realize that what you are perceiving as imperfect in any part of your life, is actually the Universal Creator seeing perfection on the Divine level. Imperfections are simply imperfections to you, but not to the Universal Source. Therefore, what you see as a disappointment in your life, the Creator sees as an opportunity for learning and soul growth.

On the soul level, your consciousness evolves and you start to see life with new eyes. Instead of making decisions with your head, you start making decisions with your heart. For this reason, you begin to see your truth. Trust that you are on your path to awakening; trust that everything is unfolding perfectly for you; and most of all, trust that all is well for you.

Furthermore, 11:11 is a coded molecular structure of “Re-Membering” and reactivating the inner master that resides within you, your True Self. Re-member is a term that emphasizes the idea of putting the pieces of yourself – your “members” together – into their rightful order. In a way, remembering who you really are.

In this sense, the meaning behind 11:11 is related to your biological ascension because it is the gateway towards ascension; you see clearer and you are moving to a higher energetic vibration. So, whenever you see 11:11, the cellular memory is reactivated within you, and you have this sense that you remember something you have long forgotten.

Hence, when you are in the presence of 11:11, this number pattern is awakening your memory. You are remembering your true Divine nature. You remember that you were created with the spiritual DNA of the Divine Creator, and your unique design originated during the process of your spiritual creation before physical birth. Thus, when you look at the master plan, you remember that you are an individual piece of the Universal Creator, and collectively, we are the whole Universe.

5th Meaning of 1111: Set an Intention (Make a Wish!) and Take Action

What is 11:11 trying to tell you? Seeing 11:11 is a wake-up call of divine intervention. It is a message from the Divine Creator and your team of angels and spirit guides to visualize the big picture of your life and take the steps to form the foundation to build what you see in your mind's eye.

It is time to make a thoughtful wish and realize your intention can manifest for your highest good and for all mankind. Remember, it is the intention of the thought itself that counts.

So, when you see 11:11, you understand that you need to take the first step toward your inspired idea or thought. In this regard, the meaning of 11:11 is that you are being called for ACTION to transform your thought into your physical reality.

11:11 is a wake-up call.  Follow your soul's passion and you will find your purpose.

What Should You Do When You Keep Seeing 11:11?

The overall meaning of 1111 is that you can start manifesting your True Self –  your soul's desires. What do you want to manifest in your life experience or reality? This is the first question you need to ask yourself when you are seeing 11:11. Whatever that is, it will be the direct manifestation of your thought patterns. And remember, your thoughts will create a vibration that will attract things with equal vibration. In other words, your thoughts carry energy that can manifest into your reality.

For this reason, when you keep seeing 1111, it is a spiritual message to remind you that you are the creator of your own reality and you need to take responsibility for it. Your current situation is the result of your past thoughts and actions. By taking a proactive approach, you can become aware of what you think, what you say, and what you do in order to completely take charge of your life.

Becoming responsible is realizing that you are the culmination of all the choices you have made throughout your life. You are the way you are as a result of your experiences. Furthermore, you start to see things as they truly are, and not as you wish they could be. For example, when you observe things as they are with no personal attachment, you can respond calmly rather than react emotionally.

Remember, your life is the result of all your choices, and once you understand that you've always had the power to create your reality, you can then become the conscious creator of all your experiences going forward. And most of all, it will be an empowering journey to be more aware than ever about the decisions you are making for your life's vision. With your focused awareness on your mission, you realize that you are not going to wait for the perfect moment to come to you. Instead, your soul is urging you to take the lead and create the perfect moment for you.

Keep in mind that the Universe doesn’t judge your decisions, it just makes them happen. It’s your decision to choose what you want to manifest in this life experience.

The message behind 11:11 is that you are to take responsibility and create consciously. You are the creator – the writer, producer, director, and actor in your own story. Because you're playing the lead character in your own life, you can direct your life in a positive way and choose to be powerful instead of powerless in your existence. You remember that this is just a story, and you can change the script any time, and you can also change your character at any time. Most of all, you begin to realize that the character you choose to play is not "truly" who you are.

Who you truly are is a spiritual being having a human experience in your own life story.

    Thank you so much for this article. This is what I needed to read to understand why I’m seeing 11:11 so much. I had a feeling about what it meant, and I knew it was something good. That’s why I would always say something positive when I would see 11:11.

    I’m currently going through a breakup, and I’m alone with my 2 kids. Something made me see the true colors of my ex-boyfriend and why I should leave him alone. And ever since, I’ve been receiving blessings after blessings.

    I also think it’s a friend trying to get my attention. He died a year ago. I remember him being so in love with me and wanting to meet me.

    I just know I’m where I need to be at this moment, and I’m glad I came across this article at 2 am — waking me up from a stomach ache.

  • Peter on | Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

    Thank you for explaining these numbers that I have been seeing recently, and I now understand why I am seeing 1111 every now and then.

  • Ron E. on | Spanaway, Washington, United States

    Thank you so much for those words! I had been seeing 11:11 quite often, and I looked that up a while back as well. I had some divine experiences. I made it through some very difficult life tests or bad happenings that turned my life upside down. I certainly didn’t understand at the time. But looking back, I know now this was a great lesson, as well as my turning point in life.

    My awakening began with drastic changes that turned my goals and responsibilities in different directions along with some losses and being at the lowest point in my entire life. I found some similar words on a few different sites, although not nearly as lengthy or as powerfully written as yours. So, I did have an idea and thought about my angels or spirit guides trying to say something.

    I’ve been half looking for what it meant and half not. I just had it sitting in the far back of my mind. Recently, I have seen 11:11 again. So tonight, I looked it up again. And after reading your description, I’m having a new deeper, more inspiring, and fuller understanding of the message, and an outlook on my new chapter and the way I see things will take me there.

    I have been feeling like I’m in a holding pattern for some time now and getting impatient. I’m feeling the desire for separation from the neck-deep rat race and pondering how to find my inner peace.

    I can honestly say that your words were what I needed for a full understanding of where I’ve been and where I’m going spiritually. So, THANK YOU so much. I would like to read more from you, and I will, as I love to inspire and be inspired.

  • Bud on | Los Banos, California, United States

    I really don’t know why I feel I should comment, but it seems right. I have seen 1111 so many times of late, and it has become a part of my life. I have had the thought, “I wonder if the clock is going to show 11:11,” and when I look, it does. That has happened about 5 or 6 times.

    After reading this and another article about 1111, I realize now that I have ignored the sign too much. The funny thing is that I have constantly felt there is a reason for seeing 1111. I have done a lot of searching in my mind for reasoning and have developed the sense of being one with the Universe, but I don’t know what to do with it.

    Your article may help me to change the way I am looking at it and really develop a better sense of direction. The most important part, l think, is that l need to start paying better attention.

    Thank you for the opportunity to express myself a little. Have a great day.

    I have been seeing the numbers 1111 so much lately, and I couldn’t figure out what it meant. Then today, I stopped and got something to eat, and the bill was 11 dollars and 11 cents. I couldn’t believe it.

    I’ve been seeing 1111 so much, but when that happened today, I made a comment about those numbers to the lady that rung me up. She said she had always heard you were supposed to make a wish.

    Later, I came home and looked it up. After reading what it meant, I started crying because my thoughts went to my daughter who had passed away at 21 of a birth defect. Now, I believe that those numbers truly mean that angels are near, and so many meanings as what I read. Thank you so much because this has helped me so much.
