7 Reasons Why You Are Seeing 1:11 – The Meaning of 111

Did you just see 1:11? Trust that you were guided here to find out about the 111 meaning and why this triple-digit number is showing up at this time of your life.

The Universe works in mysterious ways to catch your attention in order to direct you on your destined path. To guide you safely at this stage of your spiritual development, the Universe sends angels to communicate messages that can show up as repetitive numbers. As a divine sign, the general meaning of Angel Number 111 is to wake up to a new awareness of the world around you. It is the invisible force that awakens your higher consciousness.

On this new path, you begin to see that everything that shows up in your life is the result of your thoughts and feelings. So, every time you see the number sequence 111, you're being guided to pay careful attention to your thoughts and feelings as you are manifesting new beginnings in your physical reality. Keep in mind, new beginnings can also be opportunities for you to release old habits and beliefs in order for you to move forward into the next chapter of your spiritual journey.

Take into account that when you see the number pattern 111 repetitively, there are multiple meanings, and it's important to carefully sense what 111 means to you. Above all, trust that you're being guided. To help you decode the angel messages, here are 7 spiritual meanings and reasons of why you are seeing 111 or 1:11 everywhere around you.

1st Meaning of 111: You're Attracting Everything That Matches Your Energetic Vibration

The meaning of 111 is that you are manifesting what you've been focusing your attention on. Whether your past thoughts, feelings, and actions were positive or negative, you've put yourself in a place to attract things (people and situations) that match your energetic vibration. This is the law of attraction.

Keep in mind, you create your own physical reality even if you don't know that you're already doing it. You don't even have to use words; you just have to feel an emotion within your being, and the whole Universe will deliver experiences to you by bringing ideas, people, and situations that are equal to the vibration of your emotion, in order to create your earthly reality.

For example, if you spend a significant amount of time remembering a mistake in the past, that old thought initiates an emotional vibration that attracts more "mistakes" in your present life. But, if you spend a great deal of time thinking about what makes you truly happy, you will attract all kinds of happy experiences into your present life. When you understand that it's important to have good-feeling thoughts, this is when you start to transform yourself from an "unconscious creator" into a "conscious creator."

The important key to remember is to be aware of your thoughts and feelings at all times in order to attract and manifest what you really desire in your life. So when you see 111 repetitively, always remember that everything that shows up in your life is the result of your thoughts and feelings.

As transformational expert Marci Shimoff said, "Once you begin to understand and truly master your thoughts and feelings, that's when you see how you create your own reality."

Trust that you have an incredible power within you to create your physical reality.

2nd Meaning of 111: You Have the Strength to Leave the Past Behind

The meaning of 111 is to put the past behind you and move forward with confidence. Everything you've experienced in your life, so far, has given you the strength to separate from what no longer serves you. The past can hold treasured memories, but thinking about it isn't helpful when it's not positive, especially when it keeps you chained to the past.

Because repetitive thinking about an upsetting past event can intensify your present emotions connected to that old event, it's important that you move away from that place of distress (low vibration feeling) in order to avoid attracting more distress into your present life. In this example, the feeling of distress is a recycling of a past event that has not been released energetically.

At this moment, you realize you cannot allow a hurtful past to take over your life by having it show up in your present attitude. When your current situation begins to feel intense, it's important to remember that it simply represents a tiny speck in the grand scheme of the whole Universe – and the situation is only temporary. For this reason, it is up to you to do whatever it takes to take your mind off the past and find the courage to forgive and let go. Do it because it's time to heal. But most of all, do it to set yourself free.

When you see 111, the meaning is to let go of past disappointments and create space for peace to expand within you. Similar to a closet that needs cleaning, you create space by letting go of things that create clutter. Like so, awakening to your authentic self requires an empty closet. You let go of clutter to make space for spiritual freedom.

Always remember, you'll know you are heading in the right direction when you no longer have interest in looking back. Trust that you can do this. Trust in yourself.

3rd Meaning of 111: You Allow Your True Individuality to Wake Up

When angel number 111 shows up repeatedly, it's a message for you to embrace what makes you different and to express the wholeness of your True Self. The evolution of who you are is the result of what you have become and who you are continuing to be. You are constantly changing as you walk the spiral path – and most importantly, your answer to "who am I?" is changing, too.

Because there is nothing stagnant in the Universe and everything is always in motion moving forward, there is something within your being that is nudging you toward your desire or purpose; it is the inspiration in your life. You begin to realize that when you work hard for something you don't care about, you feel stress. But when you work hard for something you love, you feel passion.

As you start to direct your energy into something you deeply care about, you also gradually realize that your outer appearance is not who you really are. This is part of your awakening. You are waking up to your true nature. You accept your true identity as a child of the Creator. Like a flame bursting from the fiery sun, you are the individual flame from the One Source Creator. You begin to act as a companion with the Creator to co-create a better earth and a better future for all. You accept that the Creator is within you, and you begin to see that everything that was ever created is actually the Creator wearing a disguise around you.

Just like a puzzle piece, you have a one-of-a-kind place to fill in the grand scheme of all existence. You were specially created to be different for your individual growth within the Universe. Trust that everything fits together and everything is perfectly working together as a whole in the master plan.

Above all, you have so much energy created within you when you serve something greater than yourself. With your specific talents, you were meant to impact the world – or even someone special in a positive way. When you see number 111 repetitively, you're being reminded that being true to yourself is the greatest gift you can give to the world. And when you understand your True Self with awakened eyes, this is when you realize you have complete freedom – the freedom to live in your own light, the freedom to make your own choices, and the freedom to be uniquely you.

Always remember, you are free; you are free; you are free.

4th Meaning of 111: You're Ready to Make a Difference

In numerology, the number 1 represents the qualities of being a leader. When the number 1 appears in your life, it's a reminder for you to activate your responsibility of leadership in your workplace, in your home as a parent, or in other relationships. Simply put, the Universe is urging you to step into the chief role as the leader you were meant to be.

Further, when the triple-number 111 shows up repetitively, it means you're ready to break away from the crowd and move forward as a leader. Your past was a training ground where the Universe prepared and equipped you for your next step. Because there is constant change, you're always growing and the Universe will always give you more experiences so you can build upon the foundation that is already within you. When you realize your old path was filled with lessons that helped you grow roots, you will then begin to see your new path filled with opportunities for expansion.

As you are continuously growing, you are becoming more true to yourself. And in your developing process, you are given new assignments to prepare you for even greater things. Because the Universe gives you wisdom through your experiences, you can be sure that you have everything you need to make the shift to the next level. At your core, you know it's the right step because you can feel it and you can see what's ahead.

Evaluate what you can change in your life in order to make room for the next phase. And to be free, cut out certain relationships and eliminate unnecessary baggage in order to go where the Universe is leading you.

As you confidently take the step of faith forward, always remember who you are and what you stand for. Know your values and the rules you live by, regardless of the circumstances you face. Your integrity is the very core of your influence. So when you see 111, it's a reminder to lead by example.

As American civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge.”

Editor's Note: Martin Luther King Jr.'s destiny vibration is the number 1. He was born on January 15, 1929 (1+1+5+1+9+2+9=28 and 2+8=10 and 1+0=1).  He was truly one of the great leaders who transformed our world.

5th Meaning of 111: You're Ready to Start Something Brand-New

When you see 111, it means you're ready to begin something brand-new. A life event like moving to a new home, starting a new job, having a new child, or developing a new relationship sets off a new cycle for you. Even if you've experienced a loss, the circumstance that you probably saw as a setback is the very thing that launches you into a period of spiritual growth. This is when you realize that you have the opportunity to live the life that your soul is urging you to experience.

You understand that the Universe is offering you a fresh beginning so you can have another chance for great things. No matter what has happened, the Universe is always moving forward and making things better for you. And when you see 111 repetitively, you need to take action and take the first step toward that new start.

The Universe's master plan is designed so that your next step will naturally emerge when you are ready for it. It may not look like what you expected, but it will provide meaning and value for you, as well as, others around you. Ultimately, what you want for yourself is the same as what the Creator wants for you.

In the big picture, you will find that your true purpose in life will be geared towards who you really are and what you were born to do. Because your greater purpose exists deep within your core – waiting to be discovered – you will naturally provide your unique talents to the world when the time is right for you. And remember, your purpose is related to the needs of the world.

The following statement by motivational speaker Zig Ziglar's friend, Joe Sabah, sums it up the best: "You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great."

And remember: You can do this.

6th Meaning of 111: You're Ready to Nurture a Soul-Friendship

The meaning of 111 is that you are approaching a time when the Universe is letting you know that you're ready for a relationship where there is individual expansion. Whether the relationship is personal or work-related, your soul intention is growth, and you have the opportunity to advance more in your journey than you could alone. The relationship becomes a journey of evolution and moves you toward fulfilling your soul's purpose.

So, when you see 111, it's a sign of new beginnings for a true soul friendship taking root. With a nurturing foundation, friends can help encourage you to follow your dreams and support you in your journey forward. Remember, the bonds you forge with the people around you directly shape the quality of your existence. For this reason, it's essential to choose your friends very carefully in order to grow in the way that is fulfilling for you.

It's also important to consider your friendship with the Creator who is always with you every step of the way. In every moment, the Creator moves with you into new and hopeful beginnings. And to have the Creator know everything about you – the good and the bad – and still find you absolutely amazing is the greatest friendship of all.

And beyond everything, the Creator will guide you to the right people who are best suited for your level of spiritual development. They can come from anywhere and at any time, so pay attention when someone new walks into your life. In the big picture, we're all here to help each other. Hence, when the time comes that you meet your soul-friend, remember this: you are made to journey together, farther and higher. It is this relationship that helps you evolve and grow.

Count on it.

7th Meaning of 111: Recognize and Seize Opportunities All Around You

Life is the greatest opportunity you've been given, and the Universe is always giving you a multitude of more opportunities to grow your own abilities so you can truly take charge of your life and step into who you were meant to be. When number 111 shows up repeatedly, the Universe is letting you know that what you have planted previously will start rewarding you now; it is an advantageous time for you to grab opportunities that are waiting to unfold on your path. Because opportunities can come in disguise, it’s your responsibility to recognize the ones that are right for you, grab them, and then take action. And regardless of size, all opportunities will always give you a chance to progress through life.

So when you find the right opportunity for you, be daring and give yourself a chance to grow by stepping up to the challenge and becoming the leader of your own life. Keep in mind, you never know if the opportunity has the potential to turn into something big. Because anything can happen, you could experience something that changes your life forever. But if something happens that hinders your progress, you understand that the situation is only temporary, and you have the faith knowing that the Universe will guide you in a different direction.

One thing is for sure, the more you stay connected with the desires of your soul, the more the Universe will flood you with even greater opportunities to support your evolution. The best thing you can do is trust the leader in you to forge your path forward and do what is right for you. By accepting where you are in life, you recognize that the person you are today is evolving into the complete person you were designed to be.

So when 111 appears in your life, the Universe wants you to be aware of the opportunities in front of you. Ultimately, life comes down to the choices you make. You either choose to take advantage of an opportunity on your path, or you choose another way. In the end, the decisions you make today shape the story of your life tomorrow.

What Should You Do Next When You See 111?

At your soul level, you know what is required for the journey between where you are now and where you want to be. When you plan your future with every thought, your whole vibration reflects the vibration of what you're thinking about. So the more you think about it, the more you vibrate like it, and you will eventually attract what you think about – whether you want it or not. Hence, as the leader of your own life, you can control your thinking – this is the overall meaning of 111. You become what you think.

When you begin to take the lead and consciously write the story of your life, you start to realize that learning is an important part of the process. And one of the best ways to learn is to share your knowledge by teaching. Through teaching, you can inspire and motivate others to transform and reach their highest potential, and at the same time, you too are motivated by stretching yourself into your highest potential and learning from others around you.

So no matter where you are in life, you are in the perfect place to begin and teach what you know. And your teaching moment can be anytime, anywhere, and anyplace. So don't wait for the perfect timing, create it. Bring out the best in others and show them that they can become something much more than they can ever imagine. After all, it’s about your ability to serve others.

All in all, forge ahead. You're not only leading by example in your life, but you’re also responsible for the path that you take. So don't limit yourself to what you already know – try new things and learn from others around you.

Importantly, you hold the key to unlocking and unleashing what you can do. Remember always, the people you impact today are the people who can become the leaders of tomorrow. In the end, it’s about one life influencing another.

So trust in your whole self and go forth. We believe in you.

  • Emk on | London, England, United Kingdom

    I thought to share my little story with everyone, as I have been inspired and amazed by some of the comments I have seen here. Maybe this will give strength to others and share the fact that you are not alone in whatever you are going through now.

    I have been so ill for a few weeks now, and I wasn’t sure what’s the reason for my illness. However, I have been having this feeling that I am not happy about something, and it contributes to my sickness indirectly. I know deep inside I am in the wrong job that I hate with a bullying manager which didn’t make working easy during a lockdown.

    I have always been a fighter, and since I started this job in lockdown, I have been fighting to prove I deserve my job. However, since I have been sick, I started feeling that I need to take a step back. I don’t want my health to be affected by pushing back on something that the universe is sending me signals to warn me that it’s not the right place for me. I was hesitant to decide to leave and very anxious from the thought that I will be jobless with bills and debt.

    Just to make my story more appealing, I do meditation, and I believe in energy. I have been focusing on trying to get a guide from the universe on what I should do as I don’t want to be jobless during these uncertain times. That’s when I started to notice the numbers 1111 and 111 on a few occasions — 3 times for the last 4 days. Crazy, isn’t it?

    I started to search for the meaning as I have noticed 1111 and 111 happen a few times, and it can’t be a coincidence. For The first time, I felt this might be the signal I am looking for to be brave and say, “NO MORE, I am better than this, and I deserve better.”

    I started to get on with this feeling, and the more I see these signs, the more I know that I can make the right decision finally and walk away from the toxic environment. Everyone keeps saying that this is stupid, but the sense of calm and peace that I have inside is more assuring. I have to believe in the process of trusting my gut and do what’s right even if I don’t know the outcome and how I will manage after leaving this job.

    Since I made up my mind that I am leaving, I started to improve physically, and I am in a constant state of calmness and things are falling in place slowly. The best thing that I gained is that I am not afraid even when I don’t know what the future holds. I am still discovering my way in baby steps, but I know I have to believe in the potential when I send the good vibes and requests.

    The universe/God/Allah/Jesus/Buddha, etc. (whatever you believe in) will give back. Most importantly, be true to yourself and BELIEVE. I hope this puts a smile on your face and reminds you that you are not alone whoever you are.

  • Rosemary Calogero on | The Bronx, New York City, New York, United States

    The number 111 has always followed me. Until 2017, I did not have the spiritual insight that I have gained. It seems that the synchronicity of numbers is my guide, and when I speak to the Universe with a high vibration, I receive blessings!

    I’m thankful for my son who was born prematurely at 26 1/2 weeks, and he just turned 18 on 1/11! I’m reminded every day how much I am divinely loved by God and how grateful and humble I am. ❤️
