There's A Reason Why You Keep Seeing 1111 All The Time

POV: You’re working on your laptop and look up to check the time and see it’s 11:11. Later that afternoon, you decide to take a walk around the neighborhood during your lunch break and see a license plate with the numbers 1111. (Huh, okay.) Before heading back to work, you grab a coffee and snack and your total comes out to, wait for it… $11.11. (Freaky.) While this could simply be a set of coincidences, some people will say it is a sign that your angels are trying to pass a message along to you.

In case you didn’t know, the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras not only revolutionized mathematics, but he also believed that numbers had mystical properties. And so, numerology, the study of numbers and their spiritual significance, was born.

Numerology is said to reveal anything from what steps you should take next to achieve a goal to aspects of your personality, a.k.a. your life-path number. Angel numbers, such as 1111, are a subset of numerology. The phrase "angel numbers" describes the assignment of meaning to the repetition of the same or similar numbers, says Aliza Kelly, a professional numerologist, celebrity astrologer, and author of the forthcoming manifestation deck and guidebook There Are No Coincidences. “1111, in particular, can range from just being four numbers stacked together to signifying a divine intervention, depending on how you individually experience it,” explains Kelly.

Meet the expert: Aliza Kelly is a professional numerologist, celebrity astrologer, and author of the forthcoming manifestation deck and guidebook There Are No Coincidences.

Are you constantly seeing this number combination and asking yourself, “Hey, what’s the deal?” Ahead, a numerologist explains what 1111 means, why you keep seeing it everywhere, and how you can harness the power of 1111 energy to get the results you want.

What does 1111 mean?

The number one describes singularity, says Kelly. So, 1111 is thought of as a symbol of your own personhood and identity. Seeing ones often signifies new beginnings or a nod from the universe that you’re on the right path, according to Kelly.

Interestingly, some Kabbalists (followers of the ancient Jewish tradition of Kabbalah) actually believe that 1111 is a sign from God or divinity itself, says Kelly. This is because the ancient Hebrew name for God, Yahweh or YHWH, when written resembles four ones. (The more you know.)

Why do I keep seeing 1111 everywhere?

As previously stated, 1111 can be interpreted as a message from your angels or the universe (or whatever higher power you believe in) that you’re on the right path.

If you keep seeing 1111 everywhere, it’s a sign to keep going and trust the direction you’re moving in as everything is falling into place, says Kelly. If you’re going through a rough patch, seeing 1111 is sort of an embrace from the universe, essentially telling you, “Things are going to get better,” Kelly adds.

On the contrary, if you’re experiencing a winning streak, seeing 1111 can signify that this feeling is not fleeting and the good results that you’re getting right now are all a part of the greater direction you’re headed toward, says Kelly.

TLDR: 1111 is a very positive affirmation and is reassurance that whatever path you’re on is the right one. In other words, you got this!

How can I harness the power of 1111 energy?

Practitioners of astrology and numerology often express that there are no coincidences. “Your awareness of those four ones is indicative of the fact that there is a message for you to receive, and if you didn’t need to receive it, it wouldn’t have been something you registered,” says Kelly. “It’s good to see 1111 because it means you’re tuned into that mystical frequency.”

So, how can you harness that energy to make sure you continue on the right track? Well, if you’re like Kelly, you might have a folder saved on your phone with dozens of screenshots of 1111 out in the world. (Guilty.) But if you want to spare your phone’s memory storage, whenever you encounter 1111, you can simply take that moment to reflect and sit with that feeling for a moment. What might this be a sign for? If you’re working on an exciting project, maybe this is the universe’s way of telling you to keep going. If you’re in the middle of a major life change that you’re nervous about, such as moving or ending a relationship, perhaps this is a sign that you’re doing the right thing and it’s safe to take the leap.

If you feel drawn to go deeper, Kelly recommends journaling about what it is you’re experiencing. “1111 is a great invitation to check in with yourself and see what it is you need, so you might want to do some sort of manifestation ritual or write down your hopes and goals—whatever helps you feel aligned to your truth.”

What are some other angel numbers?

1111 isn’t the only number with a special meaning that can serve as a guide for your life. Below are some other common angel numbers to watch out for, and their meanings, according to Kelly:


Like 1111, 111 is a powerful figure for manifestation. If you see this number, the universe is giving you the “greenlight” to take the next step toward achieving your goals.


Seeing three 2s is about trust and alignment. If you see 222, it can be a sign to be present and trust that you’re exactly where you need to be. As stated before, it can also be a good sign for relationships and love connections.


333 is a sign of creativity and ambition. If you encounter this number, you should lean into your talents and gifts because the universe has opportunities and resources for you on the horizon.


Three 4s is a sign of stabilization. Seeing fours suggests that you’re in the process of becoming more grounded and building an infrastructure, either internal or external, that’s built to last. It’s also a figure of change and transformation.


The presence of fives suggests that major changes are coming. If you’re been feeling stuck or uninspired, don’t worry because massive shifts are in the works.


Although some may fear the number six because of its religious associations with demons, witnessing three 6s is nothing to be scared of. In numerology, this figure actually has a very supportive and nurturing energy. It’s a reminder to treat yourself with kindness and compassion because your angels are on your side.


À la Silk Sonic, “7-7-7, let’s go!” This sequence signifies that good fortune may be on the way, especially finance-wise. (Ah, that’s why 777 represents a jackpot at the casino.)


The number eight is the symbol of infinity or the endless loop of energy. For those who believe in an afterlife, it could reflect a powerful connection to the spiritual world, and a sign that you’re receiving supernatural support from loved ones who have crossed over.


The presence of nines suggests that a chapter is coming to a close. A meaningful connection or experience might be coming to an end soon, and a new journey may be starting. This is the perfect opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and explore new territories.


This sequence symbolizes good luck, and is one of Kelly’s favorites. “It feels playful,” she says. “It’s a kind of a wink from the universe to not take yourself so seriously, lighten up, and have fun.”

While everyone might have a different connection to angel numbers and they will mean different things to different people depending on where they are in their life, at the end of the day, these numbers are a little nudge from your angels, the universe, or whatever it is you believe in that everything will be okay. And who doesn’t need a bit of reassurance from time to time?
