I Keep Seeing 1111 or 11:11 - Here's the Latest

Another 11:11, randomly occurring, has found me again! I have decided to document it when I can.  These are legitimate and completely accidental.  I watched the Netanyahu speech today, and was doing random chores around the house, and this was paused

What is it about 11:11?

Over two decades ago, something very interesting began in my life. I wish I could remember the exact time it began, but it was more of a slow realization over time that began to almost grow to an eerie feel at times. What started out as funny experience, got a little serious and unusual, and is now lighthearted again. What I am speaking of is what I am calling my 11:11 experience. One could say it's a phenomenon of sorts because I found out it happens to other people too. Could it be nothing? Sure it could be! There is almost a whole movement now however, and has been in place for some time. Before you get too skeptical, please keep reading, and I will try to convey why I began to take it so seriously. Probably the oddest turn it took, was that its a universal experience that some have taken to a whole new level. Well that, and the fact that it comes and goes as it wants to. What I am about to explain, happens in spurts.

What is the big deal about seeing 11:11?

Here is how it started. It was very subtle at first. In short, I will see 11:11 on any digital clock, sometimes twice a day in the am and pm. Then, I will see it more than that, off and on several times a week. What I mean is, that I will see the 11:11 as I am walking around, and kind of groan, "there it is again!" One has to admit, that this could happen and does happen to people every day. So what is the big deal, right? Well, when you are not ever trying to look for it, and you keep seeing it, then that begins to get a little bit more odd. Add to this, that I see it say running out to the store at 11:11 am one day. I drive up the road, only to notice a digital clock on the bank that I never noticed before, and IT says, 11:11, several minutes later! So what I began to notice, is that no matter how "off" my clock or the banks clock was off, "I" would happen to see the time when it was in that 60 second time frame that said 11:11. Suddenly I became aware of all the digital clocks in town, whether at stores, shopping centers, banks, you name it.

Still, one could easily say, "Well you are just getting used to the idea, and you are subconsciously looking for it now, without realizing it." Could be.... This was about the time I met my new roommate at college and before long, she heard about this story too. It came up because I came in one night, after a long week of seeing my multiple 11:11's over and over, and I walked in the dorm room and told her I was going to study some. She said she was going to bed around 11:30 or so, so I asked her what time it was. Guess what time it was? 11:11. I kind of had a look on my face when she said that, so she said what is it, and I told her about the 11:11 "thing"She thought it funny, and shrugged it off saying, "Oh I see that sometimes too, or 10:10, or 3:33.." and that kind of thing. I often get this, and it makes me wonder about other people and other numbers too. Its all probably NOTHING, right?

Well..... it was fun and uncanny and often we laughed about it. One week with this same friend, it had happened a few times where she was around or we were passing, and the topic kept coming up. That night, she got creeped out when I came in late and opened the door to our room at exactly....11:11. She got the chills, and didn't say a word. I asked her what was wrong, and she just pointed at the clock. I need to be completely honest here.... I didn't WANT this to keep happening, it truly began to get kind of creepy! NO ONE could make this happen so often, no one just "sees" this sequence of numbers so much, that they get almost unnerved the next time they see it.

We learned to listen to my mom's advice, that it was something having to do with good luck! Yeah, that had to be it! Maybe your angels are near when you see 11:11, I heard it said. Hey, that sounds great, right? We just had fun with it, and our friends got a kick out of it.

Later long after college, and when I had young kids it came back for a strong "spurt", one could say. We were living in Texas. Let me tell you, when it begins, it really hits strong. So here is how it started again. It began with the clock of course at night, on a night I went to bed LONG BEFORE 11:11, and I woke up, looked over and guess what? It was 11:11pm. I couldn't believe it!! Of course, I was running errands the next day, and didn't want to see it, but I saw it when I came back home and was making cookies. I had the timer on, it was counting down. I was doing laundry and walked by the timer, and for ONE SECOND only, could it say 11:11 on that digital timer on the microwave, and guess when I walked by and saw it? 11:11. I am beginning to get creeped out you can imagine.

Not being alarmed or anything, I went about my day. I had to go to Walmart that evening. I didn't have cash, and so was writing a check. Can you guess what the amount was? The cashier says to me, "that will be $11.11." I looked up at her and stared a minute.... I couldn't believe it. The next day, I was getting gas after dropping my son off at school. I was going to get 10.00 of gas in my little car. I tried to stop the pump at $10.00 and it got stuck. Guess when I got it "unstuck?" At eleven dollars and eleven cents. I kid you not.

This is where you maybe won't believe the story (if you are believing it at all!). I was in the store on another day, and was paying with twenty dollar bills for something. Can you take a leap of a wild guess at what my CHANGE was? The man said, "and $11.11 is your change." It almost took my breath away. To top it off, I went somewhere else, with my husbands checkbook to pay for something, and they needed the check number for records. They asked what the check number was, and it was... DRUMROLL..... Check #1111.

Can you just maybe begin to get a feel for WHY the numbers 11 11 are so important to me, or stand out to me? Keep in mind, these weren't all in subsequent days, right in a row, but nearly so. This doesn't take into account all the other times I still woke up to see 11:11 at the am or pm hours, or take into account how I get stuck behind trucks or cars that have tags or license plates with 11:11. IF there was really anything behind the whole 11:11 thing, it was seeming to Try to get my attention.

Spirit Prompts, or Guardians, or Angels? A Movement?

It came about one day, that my mother called me from California to tell me of a very good friend of hers that experienced the VERY same level of 11:11's I did practically! She was so moved by the numbers, she ended up getting married to her husband on November 11, at 11:11am, to celebrate it, so to speak. She told my mom to warn me though, that if I go to look it up online, to not get worried, that there is a LOT of weird stuff out there on 11:11. People even meet up around the world. I never did look too much into it, though it did seem interesting. Maybe I ought to! I did talk to a relative once that is involved in numerology, and many other things. She had some very interesting thoughts on it, but was also perplexed by it more than anything.

I am thankful for my life and even the goofy 11:11 experience I still have in spurts on occasion. I just can't help but to see it, on highways, on dates, even when I look back at an email I sent at, guess what time? Or guess when I received an email?! Or when the VCR stops and blinks on again, though we all have seen that one! In honor of 11/11/2011 coming up here very soon, I write this hub for that special day! Thanks for keeping things interesting, 11:11, and making me smile and "wonder" at what more is going on than meets the eye. Its just too uncanny, to be coincidence anymore.

My family has fun with it, maybe too much fun!

I have been called into a child's room a few times, only to be told, "look mom!" My son would be pointing to 11:11 on the clock thinking I would love to see it! Or better yet, my family teases me when I go into the kitchen to see the clock on the oven set to 11:11, and the microwave, and the radio in the kitchen, etc. ALL AT ONCE...they think they are so funny! haha, the jokes on me. So we have learned to keep it light and have fun with it.

**I welcome all comments below, and please do share if you have ever had any experience like this. Its different for different people I know. I just thought it a good time to share my story as 11/11/11 is almost here! Its good to know I am not alone, evidently its a strong force of its own, what do you think?**

Sharing a few of the images - I'm Just Beginning to Collect These

I have decided to begin taking pictures of the 1111's I see, when I am able to.  This was the third time today I saw this, 2/1/15, and this was during the Super Bowl, which I only watched the commercials, and maybe parts of 3 plays.  Coincidences!

Nature is something I love very much, I think it must be tied in somehow with my 11:11 experience.  One day I will know more for sure.

Ongoing and New Examples

Well here we are in a new year, and its 2015 now. Just yesterday I again saw the 11:11 in the am and pm on my cell phone, when I was doing random things like checking texts, etc. Some won't think much of that, but it still grabs my attention. What was a bit stranger, was today, I was a social media site, where I was going through some posts. I came across a pretty picture someone had posted of another persons photographic art. It said to click on the image to see it larger. It was a unique image, of a stem only, with water droplets on it, and I wondered "what am I missing?" I clicked on the image, and saw it was a reflection of a rose in the water droplets. I got that chill when the number 1111 caught my eye, as it was the number in a sequence of this person's collection of photos. There were over 1600 photos in the collections as of that date, and I had randomly gotten myself to #1111, never having seeing this persons site before, nor any of their photos in my life. A total stranger to me. It is stuff like that that makes me wonder a little bit more. It could be that much of a pure chance thing, I suppose.

Hello Silva, I think you are probably right! That totally makes sense, and "rings true," to me. Thank you for stopping by to read and comment here.

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on February 25, 2015:

Hello Colorado Greg. I have much the same experience as you. (Though I suppose that goes without saying!) I have wondered too, but its a good thing I believe. To me, its like a reminder also to keep a right focus (a right heart) on what is most important, and never stop being aware, etc.

My Mom used to tell me it was God's way of letting me know he is near, or angels, etc. I think if it feels unnerving, its because it can just be so odd, and like you say, you aren't looking for it. I totally get it. I am a firm believer that there is much more going on than meets the eyes, and that numbers are a very unique thing in our universe. We don't fully comprehend it all now, but I really think we will one day. It makes me glad others experience it also, and are talking about it. So thank you! The experience you shared sounds like a classic example of it. The kind of thing you could make happen if you tried. It may be just nothing, but it has something to do with our subconscious perhaps, and we are deeply more in tune when those numbers are near, or something. I would warn too, don't listen to everything you hear. A friend of the family that has this experience so much that she got married on 11/11, at 11:11 said, be careful of the weird stuff on it on the internet! I thought it was funny, as it was years ago.

Anyway, thanks again, and come back anytime to give an update on anything new with it! I think its a good and special thing.

Silva Hayes from Spicewood, Texas on February 25, 2015:

I choose to think it's a message that something good is going to happen!!

Colorado Greg on February 25, 2015:

I have been seeing 11:11 or some combo like 9:11 for years now. I have come to expect it when i look at the clock. It as if it is looking for me an not the other way around. I will literately see it 6 or more times a day. The other day I deposited a check with my phone. Wells fargo emailed ma with the details. Check deposited at 11:11am. I received the email at 12:11. check number 1111. Too weird. It also seems like everyday i get behind a car at the stop light and their license plate is something 11. I have read all the blogs and hope that it is something positive. I at least look at it that way and I try to be happy when I see it. Glad to know I am not alone it this though

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on January 15, 2015:

Hello Grand Old Lady, I had thought i had responded to this comment before, but perhaps it didn't post? At any rate, thank you so much. As for a possible short story, no, it wasn't meant to be that, though it reads like I am telling a story at times. Yes, how my family likes to tease me is too much, and sometimes they repeat that stuff, which makes me laugh every time. They love to tease me! Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez from Philippines on June 27, 2014:

Well, it seems like the numbers 11;11 love you quite a bit. When I was young, my father liked the number 7 and for some reason, we'd always end up on places where there was a number 7. But it wasn't like your 11:11 experience, that is way out. Now, if this was a short story and I was too slow to tell, it is also a very good short story and I love how the family played that joke on you in the end. I have my slow days so...humor me....

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on March 14, 2014:

Chris, thanks so much for sharing your experiences with the whole 11 11 number "thing." (For lack of better words!) It is very interesting to say the least, and I appreciate you sharing what you think it means for you too. To me, it also felt like a very spiritual thing. The finer details elude me some, but it is very important I know.

Thanks for taking the time to read and share what you did!

Chris on March 13, 2014:

My 11:11 experience is off the charts like your experience is. I kept quiet about my experience until I shared it with my family a year ago. I see it on clocks that aren't set to the right time, I seen it on a wall in a alley. I see it on other peoples phone when they go to show me something on their phone. I see it constantly. I finally found out what 11:11 is for me. It took me awhile to figure it all out and sometimes I still sought myself what the meaning is. It's a warning sign for me and also confirmation that an angel or a midway or someone in a higher power has my back. I know what I'm about to tell you sounds completely crazy but it's the truth. When I see 11:11 I'm ok with it but I know it's someone telling change is about to happen. I have the power to change that outcome but only if I listen and take a look at what is really happening in my life. When I ignore it it becomes rapid fire. Warning, warning, warning. For example I was seeing 11:11 like crazy I seen it 5 times in a week and then 4 times in one day. I finally got frustrated and yelled out loud and said I get it! Now stop bothering me and out of the corner of my eye a Orb flew in the air and zipped past me. I got chills and at that point I knew that it was a spirt looking out for me or trying to tell me warning warning. At that point I called one of my co workers that I was close to. I didn't tell him what I knew about 1111. I just told him I knew I was losing my job the next day. He responded why would you even think that? I said corporate guys just don't come into town for no reason they are coming to let me go because I was next in line to be let go. He chuckled and said no you work hard you are just paranoid. I went to bed that might fully knowing I was going to be let go because 1111 was telling me something and I finally listened. I went in at 9am the next morning and I was handed my last paycheck and escorted out the door. The funny thing is I knew it and it was the craziest Moment. But how I knew is that I began to piece all the times I seen 1111 rapid fire and they all occurred during life changing event. Saw 1111 like crazy days before I found out my fiancé was cheating. Saw 1111 like crazy when I lost my job. I've seen 1111 like crazy when I found out I was dating a girl with a narssastic personality. I see it but I see it more when I don't stop to figure it out. I also believe 110 percent it's a spiritual being. I know this all sounds crazy but I know what I see and it all happens when things are about to change or you are not on the right path.

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on January 14, 2014:

Hello Silva, yes, isn't it so interesting? I am like you, in that I think it is a very positive thing, bottom line. My experience is ongoing, and comes in waves of different kinds. Even the waves or patterns vary but 11:11 still comes up in new ways I didn't even think it could. It amazes me, truly. Thanks for sharing your experience and leaving a comment!

Silva Hayes from Spicewood, Texas on September 25, 2013:

This began happening to me in 2012. I had never heard mention of this at the time. After I noticed it several times, I Googled 11:11 and lo -- it seems to be widespread. Until today, I might notice it once or twice a month, but today it happened twice in the last 24 hours! I take it as a positive sign; of what exactly, I do not know.

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on September 18, 2012:

Hello Mysterious, I hear you, absolutely. I don't think it makes more sense necessarily, for people to just say that our minds get conditioned to it. I say this in part, because there was a time that I tried to actually "not see" the 11-11 numbers! I wanted to try my hand at "reconditioning" my mind then to not see them, if indeed it had for whatever reason did try and see the numbers on its own (my mind, that is...) In fact, that seems a kind of extraordinary claim.... which then raises new questions. Like, why would my mind condition or get conditioned to see such numbers with such precision and accuracy, over and over?

I agree, its highly unlikely, or believing in what seems to be a less likely explanation for such things. There are certain types of people in the world that this will appeal to.

Funny thing is, I have been seeing it consistently still, and always of course while not trying to see it. I see it on a countdown ticker sometimes, when not trying to see it, when it is tat 11:11 for only one second. Do you know how hard that would be to do, even if I tried to do it? Uncanny for sure!

mysterious 11-11 on August 20, 2012:

Hello! A thought to ponder on again. Given the frequency of experiencing this event, do we really think that our mind or the brain structure itself is responsible for conditioning us to be aware of such numbers? For me, it is highly unlikely because of the frequency of its precision and accuracy that as if, we are guided to see those numbers. I know for a fact that the mind is a powerful tool as claimed in my previous statement, but is it that powerful to enable us to experience it with a magnitude level of accuracy? I have seen youtube videos that are trying to provide answers to all these, one of which is the explanation that the mind can be conditioned in such a way.

There is a part in me which tries to be logical. I tend to veer away from any mystical input. I just could not help myself from further mind inquisition. Though, I am open to anything that could provide an answer to all of these. Thanks!

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on August 17, 2012:

Mysterious, thank you so much for your thoughtful comment here. I actually have thought about this whole 11-11 thing a lot like you have. I have had some negative feelings with it as well. What is hard to distinguish is how much are we giving into our own suspicious of how it could be "good or bad", or not.

I have always been very sensitive to all things spiritual, and your comment makes a lot of sense to me. I hope it isn't bad, but whenever I thought it might be, I thought I could just be adding those ideas onto whatever it is or isn't.

Lately for me, I still see it, but its more random and spread out. Soon, it will come again in spurts, but I am like you in that I tried hard not to see it sometimes. I see it in NEW ways all the time. Ways I couldn't have expected. That is a little unnerving, but is also ok. Its like there is just more going on, and something is connected to those numbers somehow. I am not convinced that it isn't our brains just happening to make themselves more prone to see certain things, no matter how hard we try or not. I figure one day we will know for sure.

I never got involved in a message board either for it, nor am I convinced of some of the crazier stories associated with it. I don't know of any proofs for such things. Thank you for your comment!

mysterious 11-11 on August 16, 2012:

Hello! I would just like to share my similar experience of having to see

the numbers 11-11. This has happened or should I admit that it is still happening to me to this day, though I have decided not to pay attention to it . There is a part in me that rejects the idea that it has a special meaning to it.

I am a seeker of knowledge, mostly on esoteric ones. The truth of the matter is I am a bit afraid to confront it. All I know based on some of the things I have learned is that, we make things happen, that's how powerful our mind is. To make it simpler, any idea that we attach to it (11-11) whether positive or negative may materialize based on how we perceive them to be. That is why I am very cautious not to put meaning to it as a means of interpreting things. What is eerie here is no matter how hard I try to avoid them, one cannot help but wonder if indeed this occurrence is a preview of what is to come.

The truth is, it does not serve me well in seeing those numbers (11-11).

I am in complete denial and perhaps wrong with my observation and interpretation but negative things are associated with it as far as I am concerned. I do not intend this as true for others. I am basing this claim only on my behalf. I really do not know if we are blessed or cursed for having to see those numbers. Actually, I am refraining myself to participate in such forum or discussions. But, what you have stated here is exactly what I have experienced. Others have dismissed it to be a non-sense observation, others thought it to be mystical. I would have been happier if upon seeing them would bring me luck or positive things for that matter.

On the brighter side, if this has been my observation, am I or rather should we be thankful that this somehow allows us to be keenly observant of life in general and be prepared of what is to come ?

Just a thought to ponder on!

Hello Amber, thank you for your comment here. Life is precious, and I don't know what the future holds, but I am so thankful for everything. :) Have a great day.

amberrae from WA on June 02, 2012:

This is what will begin your awakening process! Congrats! You are awakening to your higher self and its exciting! Just embrace each experience and know that you will be soon going through a transformation like no other!! :)

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on April 15, 2012:

Hello Jafrin, Yes, I agree! That is true. People can't make these weird coincidences up, it just happens. It has been happening a lot lately again. So interesting!

jafrin yesmin emma on April 15, 2012:

its really funny things

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on February 24, 2012:

Jeni, thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment. You summed up my experience with it very well also. How very interesting that after thinking on it, processing it all, and experiencing it time and again, we come away with similar thoughts about it, from the deep intake of breath to the contemplation, honoring it, and moving on. Also, the changes in life or stressful times, and even times on vacation which can be great but tense, I see it crop up more.

It IS like it is saying, "pay attention", and I too am NOT a clock watcher, or a time keeper. To those of us that are like that, we can understand a bit more deeply why the whole thing is even the more odd to experience. Thanks again for stopping by and leaving a comment. No, we aren't alone, that is for sure. So glad you shared what you did. Have a great day. :)

Jeni Pari on February 23, 2012:

I found your hub because I did a search for 11:11, before I myself would write a hub about it. This has been a pattern in my life for many years now and it's almost as if why bother even writing one, you summed up my experience pretty well.

It's a wake up call - a digital code that your brain reacts to. From what I have learned and experienced is to just to go with the flow. Relax. I always exclaim when I see it - like a deep intake of breath really fast, my huband thinks somethings wrong until I say look what time it is. I don't watch clocks, I don't follow time, but when time follows me it's saying "Wake Up!" "Pay Attention" I look at it now as a moment of contemplation honour it and move on. I have found during times of stress or great change in my life it crops up more.

Thanks for sharing your experience it's nice because we know we're not alone.

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on February 07, 2012:

Hello A, I don't have an iphone actually, but I can only imagine if I did. It IS a very weird low odds coincidence. I see it in spurts, and at times I shouldn't technically see it.

It seems that your mind is tuned into it now, and I think it is just more of a quirky thing than anything else. Some people think it is a perfect number, and has more meaning, perhaps spiritual meaning behind it. I don't know now, but I think one day we will know more about it. There is a lot of kooky things on the net about people that experience it. I am not too into that.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experience.

A on February 06, 2012:

All the time... It started happening last fall. Without having heard any of the media hype about it I looked at my iPhone time on an evening walk an 11 11 11 at exactly 11:11 and though for a second holy shit,, that is a total weird low odds coincidence. Same as you now, tonight in fact, I'll see the time or other 11:11 references all over the place. What does it mean? Do you have an iPhone by chance?

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on November 15, 2011:

Hi Stephanie, and thank you for asking that. You know, I was ready for almost anything! lol However, I went to work, and it was a regular day, and nothing eventful happened. I have heard of the other people that have the same experience, but I don't know of anything particular that happened with them. I DID have a new strange view of 1111, in going over some patient accounts at work. Of ALL the patients, (and I wasn't looking at their numbers) that one jumped out to me. My eye went right to the tiny spot in one part of a paper in a large stack. No big deal, just keep seeing it. So strange huh? Thanks again! I think its deeper, the meaning, but don't know how else to put it than that. Or, its truly nothing and my mind is just keying on the numbers somehow? Who knows. :) Appreciate your comment.

Stephanie Henkel from USA on November 11, 2011:

11.11.11 is over where I live, and I'm curious to know if you had any unusual experiences today? I was amazed to learn that there are others out there who have the same experiences with that number - I wonder if this date had special meaning for them?

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on November 11, 2011:

Glassvisage, that is so interesting to experience, isn't it? I am glad you stopped by and left a comment. :)

glassvisage from Northern California on November 09, 2011:

Strangely this was similar to what I experience, except my numbers are 11:14 for some reason.

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on November 04, 2011:

RGNestle, That is interesting, and I often wondered if it were something as simple as that. It might be easily explained away, and its likely that is all it is. Thanks for sharing your experience, its likely to help others as well as myself! Its neat to see that perfect number, but then after a while, not so much lol. Glad you stopped by.

RGNestle from Seattle on November 04, 2011:

It never happened to me until my friend told me that he thought that 11:11 was the most perfect number on the digital clock. "It's perfectly symmetrical," he said.

That apparently set up my subconscious to auto-focus on this number. It happens mostly at night, in bed. That is where my only home digital clock sits.

I recently began telling myself to keep looking away until there is no way to see 11:11. It's working. lol

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on November 04, 2011:

Seafarer Mama, that sounds like a good plan! That is awesome you get to celebrate her birthday with her. Thanks for stopping by and for the comment. :)

Mary, thanks for your visit, and yes, I ought to get a ticket then! Nothing to lose right? :) Appreciate your comment as always.

Brenda, as I said, there are some out there that this happens to. I am glad I am not the only one! I appreciate your comment and visit to my page.

Brenda Holstine from Denton, Texas on November 03, 2011:

This happens to me all the time too....

This is a new one on me! No matter what time I go to bed at night (and it's never before 11:30), I will wake up, look at the clock and it will be 2:00AM Maybe I have a "thing" for 12???? I think you should play the lottery on 11/11/11 and try and pick those numbers.

Seeker, thank you very much for your insight here. I have had many similar thoughts, not to the exact detail as you there. The odds are what make it so unique and make one wonder about it all.

I hear you about others, and how they experience it with other things. My whole life I have been deeply sensitive to what seems to be "another realm" as odd as that sounds. Spiritually, I have been in tune or sensitive to things. I am told that going up one line of my family in particular, this is not a completely uncommon trait. I have a belief system, as I am a Christian and believe in God. If or how any of this is tied into that, I have no idea!

Your comments are very much appreciated, thank you!

Hi Oceansunsets - what an excellent and fascinating hub! I have heard of this happening to people and in many different forms not just numbers.

It sounds very similar to synchronicity. This happens mostly to people who begin to meditate and/or are opening up to a spiritual path etc., but not always.

Many of them will have a series of, what they term at first 'coincidences' but the occurrences seem to go beyond that. Alternatively it could be something to do with the sub-conscious, but then I don't see how the sub-conscious could make a cheque number happen. It seems more likely that some force/energy is working through the sub-conscious. Perhaps to bring attention to itself and also perhaps to make you aware that not everything under the sun is black, grey and white - more like multicoloured!

It would be interesting to find out mathematically what the actual odds are for you experiencing so many incidents to do with 11:11?

A very enjoyable and fascinating hub. Voted up + awesome!

Galleryofgrace, I think you could be right, its hard to know for sure. The power or effects of our minds on things can be rather interesting, and I know we don't know all there is to know yet regarding this. Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts with me, I totally welcome it and enjoy that! You could be right, and I think I ought to find a way to play the lotto that day, true!

CMHypno, Yes, I will definitely try to update things on this topic later on. I think you are probably right, that there is some pattern or something that is important in some way? Hard to know for sure, but we shall see. Thanks so much for your visit and comment. :)

AnnDavis, haha, I hear that! Hope you win! Thanks for the visit and comment.

I'm playing the lotto..Nov 11.

CMHypno from Other Side of the Sun on November 03, 2011:

We will look forward to your updates on 12/11? Very interesting hub, and as there is a pattern to the Universe 11.11 must be important to you in some way. Hope it all becomes clear!

Gracie L Sprouse from Virginia on November 02, 2011:

I have several thoughts on this. First, you may have subconsciously fixed your mind on 11:11. Reason I say this is because at one time I got out of my car with a hand full of papers ,and declared -geeez I need a paper clip! Looking on the ground after taking a couple steps was a nice new paper clip. From that point on I am constantly finding paper clips. One day I'm walking up the sidewalk and apparently someone in front of me had lost paper clips, there was a trail of shiny new paper clips for half a block.

I am aware of a person who constantly finds money. Have tried to turn the paper clips to hundred dollar bills but so far it hasn't materialized.

Secondly if you play the lottery you should play on 11/11 at 11: 11 am.

Several years ago when I was listening to the radio The song that played kept repeating "On Tuesday play 811". I checked with others who listened to the same station they did not hear that song. So on that Tuesday I played 811, it brought me a small sum of money.

thanks for sharing, a very interesting subject.

Stephanie, thank you for your visit and comment :) I hear you, it IS very strange, and there isn't much more to say than that right now. I will definitely have to do a follow up hub for that day, good idea. Wouldn't that be fun if winning the lottery was involved,haha! Appreciate your comment :)

Stephanie Henkel from USA on November 02, 2011:

This is very, very strange...I wonder what it means? I have had a similar experience with a different number some years ago when I would wake up at exactly the same time every night. It hasn't happened in a long time, but it was eerie. I hope you'll do a follow-up hub to tell us of any unusual experiences on 11/11/11. Hope it's something good like winning the lottery!
