WILLOW SOUL 911

Top Reasons Why You Keep Seeing 9:11 - Meaning of 911

Did you just see 911?  You were guided here to find out about the 911 meaning and why this 3-digit number is showing up in your life.

Seeing 911, again and again, is not as much of a coincidence as you may think.  Nothing in the Universe is random.  This is synchronicity.  Something that repeats itself is a signa message that wants to catch your attention—especially if it is a number pattern or a numeric sequence, such as 111, 0000 or even 9:11.  You are waking up and breaking away from egocentric thinking patterns.  You realize that you are capable of much more than you are experiencing in your life.

The Universe is always communicating with us, but not everyone is sensitive enough or in tune to sense those messages and understand the meanings. The reason for seeing 911 repetitively is that there is something you need to pay attention to, a special message for you from the Universe and your divine team of angels and spirit guides.

Keep in mind that there are multiple meanings for the number 911. To help guide you, here is WILLOW SOUL's list of the spiritual meanings of 911 and the reasons why you keep seeing 911 everywhere at this time of your life. After going through each of them, decide which message resonates with you the most so you can flow in the direction of your soul's goal.

1st Meaning of 911: You Are Moving to a Higher Level of Consciousness.

Although 911 is commonly associated with an emergency call for help, Angel Number 911 conveys a spiritual meaning. The most important reason for seeing Angel Number 911 is that you have acquired a higher level of awareness. You are beginning the most incredible life adventure, and you decide that you no longer live for yourself but something much greater.

So, when you keep seeing the time 9:11 or 911, the meaning is to believe that you can do anything your mind conceives. And you remember that this is true for you. With courage and perseverance, you believe in yourself. You realize that you are unique with extraordinary gifts and talents. You begin to act toward your desires.  If you can think it, you can do it.  Doors start to open, and the entire Universe conspires to help you with your desire. Once you take action, everything you are seeking is also seeking you. You begin to realize that all the answers you seek are really found within you, and when you are consciously aware of this truth, the Universe brings to you the ideas and people you require to accomplish your mission.

As an angel number, 911 is about readiness to lighten the world around you with your divine light. The significance of 911 is that you are ready to grow and expand spiritually, and this new sense of awareness will bring you purpose in life.  You take action that moves you in the direction of what you desire, and life begins to flow for your highest good.  The Universe will lead you to answers as you take a step closer to your true self.

You decide to release old habits and choose better ways to spend your time in order to form your new character that supports your true self and the Universe.

It is time to take the wheel and become the captain of your own ship.  Make waves and create ripples outward to start the change that positively impacts the whole world—or even just one person!

Remember this: "What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself." – Abraham Maslow (1908 – 1970)

2nd Meaning of 911: You Are Ready to Move Forward in the Next Cycle of Adventure.

Another meaning of 911 when you see it repeatedly is growth. The Universe is sending you a hint that you are ready to move up to the next level in your life. The wheels are turning and you are moving into the next cycle of your life and this means that it is time to take full responsibility for yourself.  This could mean learning or develop a new skill, a new habit, a new character trait, or a new perspective on life. From your new level of consciousness, this change will bring a peaceful energy that will attract the right people and experiences to support your mission.  All the strength you need to succeed in your mission is already available within you.  Whatever you truly need, you will always have because you have a deep knowing of how to attract it or achieve it.

American entrepreneur Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”  This means that the people around you determine how you think, feel, act, and ultimately how you live your life. You naturally absorb energy and reflect traits of the people around you.  You have the choice to create your own success and happiness by spending time with the right people who can help you get to the next level.  If you are the smartest one in your group, how are you supposed to motivate yourself to be better?  The person in your tribe is learning from you, but WHO are you learning from?

To be the best version of yourself, you need to continue to learn, grow, and strive for the better.  As a start, you can seek an inspiring person who is 10 steps ahead of you in your area of interest.  It can be someone who has published books, videos or workshops.  Immerse yourself in them. Read them, watch them, and learn from them.  You become what you are exposed to.

So when you see 911, the significant meaning is to take the first step in the next cycle of your life. Who is going to help you become the best version of yourself?  Remember, your journey is yours to travel alone and it is personalized just for you. It is up to you to choose which pathway is yours and where it leads.  Your decision will set the pavement for your future self.

"You are what you choose to be today.” – Wayne Dyer (1940 – 2015)

3rd Meaning of 911: You Are Trusting Your Future Self.

Seeing 911 is a positive message indeed, often telling you that you are exactly where you need to be in life. All you need to do is trust how your life unfolds.  The world around you may be chaotic, but with trust, you know it is just a play and you are in it.  You understand that the physical world is made up of energy and you have a new attitude about the entire Universe. You know who you truly are and nothing can shake you.  Whenever you see 911 repetitively, your message is to stay positive and be grateful for this exact moment in your life, because your trust for the future directs blessings your way. This trust allows you to have new experiences that open your heart to a higher purpose.

You trust that each experience in your life is the right experience for you. What you have been seeking is already here. You are the divine being that you are seeking.  With trust, you sense that whatever you truly need will be yours, because your higher consciousness—your future self—will support you. To connect with your future self, quiet your mind, be very still, and listen to the silence within.

The more you trust your soul’s guidance within, the clearer the messages you will receive from your future self.  The choice is always there to trust, and with this, you will never fail.  But your trust will be repeatedly tested.  And when you face challenges, you do not allow fear to diminish your courage in any way.  When true courage and trust become part of your nature, and self-serving habits are released, you are ready to move into another level of higher consciousness.

“Trust that your soul has a plan, and even if you cannot see it completely, know that everything will unfold as it is meant to.”  – Deepak Chopra

4th Meaning of 911: You Are Ready to Manifest.

In numerology, 911 adds up to the master number 11 (9+1+1=11), and it further reduces to the number 2 (9+1+1=11 and 1+1=2), which represents how you connect to others on a 1-on-1 level, as well as staying true to yourself.

The 11 is made up of two 1s.  In this sense, 11 is a gateway that brings you to the next phase of your true self.  You are in a column of light and this is the master number that lifts you to the next level and brings you closer to the light.

The number 11 teaches you how to master your life.  You are going to have opportunities to manifest when you see 911.  This means that you are going to be tested with challenges in order to master being true to yourself and having the courage to take action in the right direction toward your highest good.  You are going to learn how to tune into yourself and listen to your intuition to help guide you on your path to manifesting your soul's purpose. When you are in alignment with your soul's purpose, manifestation happens more easily.

5th Meaning of 911: Your Workplace is a Spiritual Training Ground.

According to Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers 101, seeing angel number 911 is your divine message to stay positive and focused. Even if things do not seem to go your way, it is very important that you keep a positive mindset concerning your spirituality based career ideas.

Taking it a step further, you do not have to separate your work-life and your spiritual life. You can combine both. As such, you see your workplace as a spiritual training ground. All of the qualities that you want to grow in your life, like patience and kindness, can be tested in that space. You will have multiple chances to practice manifesting those qualities. So no matter what type of job you have, you can approach your work as a spiritual path.

The more you understand who you truly are, the more happiness you will have at work and at home. Cultivating your own spirituality that allows you to forge a deeper connection with your soul-self is the most direct route to a fulfilling career and life.

6th Meaning of 911: Make Decisions That Are In Alignment With Your Purpose.

Number 911 relates to Archangel Tzaphkiel (“God’s Knowledge”) who is the keeper of wisdom and sacred knowledge.  Other spellings of Tzaphkiel's name include Jafkiel, Japhkiel, Zafkiel, Zafchial, Zaphchial, Zaphiel or Zelel.  Archangel Tzaphkiel aids in spiritual growth, wisdom, and understanding.

When you see 911, Tzaphkiel is guiding you to have the courage to make decisions that are in alignment with your true self and life purpose, ultimately making the world a better place.

According to Gustav Davidson’s A Dictionary of Angels: Including the Fallen Angels, Archangel Tzaphkiel watches you when you need to make important decisions and when you need to put them into words for others to understand. If you are unsure of the words, Tzaphkiel will help you to make the message clearer. 

7th Meaning of 911: Your Spiritual Awakening Leads to Answers.

The meaning of 9:11 can be related to a spiritual awakening.  You begin to shed the ego mask from your true self.  In this healing process, you close old chapters in order to write new ones.  You understand that the negative people and experiences in the past have helped you grow into this current phase of your life. 

In this new level of awareness, you seek people and experiences that match and raise your vibration. While everyone is playing a role in this awakening process, no role is any less important.

Look within for the answers you seek. When you realize that you have access to the part of you that knows what you need, you can stop searching outside of yourself. When you trust the wisdom that lives within you, you can confidently navigate your life. You are exactly where you are supposed to be and you are heading in the direction that you are supposed to be going.

When the time is right, you will have a clearer understanding of your role or purpose.  With angel signs and synchronicities, you are always being guided toward your life mission every day.  Trust the process because you are always being helped.

What Should You Do Next When You Keep Seeing 911?

In the end, the meaning of 911 and seeing 9:11 repetitively is a reminder to be your true self. You are a divine being and now it is time to gift the world with your talents. You can help change and raise the consciousness of the planet by being who you truly are. 

You leave your comfort zone because you realize that you need to move forward in the direction of your mission, or you can turn back to the safety of old routines.  You will end up getting the same results if you continue to do what you have always done.  So if you want to see change, make sure you do something significant about it. You never know until you try. 

Trust yourself in pursuing your life and soul mission.  Surround yourself with the right people and situations that can help you move on to the next chapter of your life.  Trying new things can make you reflect on your old beliefs and see problems in a new light.  Every experience is meant for you, so learn to trust each one.  This constant trusting practice will help you to become your true self. 

Nothing is by accident.  Your role is part of the Universe's master plan and you need to trust that everything is unfolding perfectly just for you.  Connect with the voice in your heart and learn to trust.  This connection is your pathway to freedom

Seeing 911 frequently tells you that you are ready to become who you truly are. You are the gift the world needs and no one can better express your talents than you can.  Transform the world for the better. All it takes is for you to step out. 

It is time to make your personal mark!

    Wow is all I can say. I have been seeing the time 9:11 as well when randomly looking at the time on my phone. I, too, thought it had to do with the twin towers but decided to look it up, thinking I needed to figure this out; it was worth looking into.

    I resonate with each one of the reasons above. I have been doing a lot of soul searching. I have been trying to be a better person by finding my purpose on this earth, letting go of things from the past and not letting things in the present affect my well-being, and being as authentic as I can be. Is there anything else that I can read to help with this? I am humbled and excited after reading the reasonings for my seeing 9:11. I can’t wait to see what the future will be. Thank you.

  • Walter Clinton Lourenco on | Tampa, Florida, United States

    Like many of you, I’ve been seeing 911. Since 2001, I have always thought 911 was connected to New York City because I was two blocks away from the towers when they fell. I’ve learned to deal with that, yet I still see 911 constantly on the clocks, any clock anywhere!!!!!

    I’m going through a tough time right now. For whatever reason, I think I needed to learn what 911 meant, so I googled it for the first time.

    I can feel that you just did a fascinating article. It’s interesting, and it seems like the universe isn’t done with me yet.

  • Lorenzo on | San Antonio, Texas, United States

    I have been seeing 9:11 on a clock that I would look at randomly for over 2 years. I have gone through a lot within these past years regarding getting to know myself more and how I actually am — rather than projections of myself.

    All of these meanings resonated with me in some way, and now reading this article made me realize that all the stuff I have been through in the past leads me into exactly the person I am today.

    I always have felt a little different from others, but maybe I have come to terms with it more, and I finally realize that being my true authentic self is all I can do.

    I loved this article!! Reminder: You are what you think/tell yourself, so tell yourself only positive things!!

  • Robert Jones on | Danville, Kentucky, United States

    I have seen 9:11 on my clock since 2016, and I was concerned if it meant preparing for something terrible to happen. So when I lost my boy, I just figured that was the meaning for 9:11. But I have continued seeing 9:11 on the clock.

    So today, for some odd reason, I decided to Google “what does the number 911 mean” and I came upon this article — 7 meanings of seeing 911 — and I was blown away. This passage has really helped me to search more within myself to fulfill my love and desire to share God’s Word.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • Nicole on | Newburyport, Massachusetts, United States

    So today, ironically, not even on purpose, I looked into my 9:11 sightings at flipping 9:11 pm! Lol, I have been seeing 9:11 for years! Every day!

    Sometimes morning and night, no matter what I felt, I always caught the clock at 9:11 and thought of the twin towers.

    But this article really shed light! It’s funny because the first reason to see 9:11 is to awaken my higher consciousness! And LITERALLY, it’s all I’ve been obsessed with for the past 2 years!

    I have been discovering and learning all kinds of new things about the universe and myself, and they all sit so comfortably with me! And reading this message gives me so much comfort that maybe this is precisely the road I’m meant to follow! I am for sure growing in that direction.

    I was reading the article to my boyfriend, and with every sentence, I was like, “Holy cow! I’VE BEEN SAYING THESE EXACT THINGS AND EXPRESSING THIS VERY THING for the last 2 years!!”

    SMH, mind blown!
