How often do you see this number? Does this number in the photo above jump out at you at random moments? The number can only appear twice daily on a digital clock, so the odds may be pretty good.
I estimate that I see this exact number on my clock in the middle of the night at least twice a week. This is an ongoing habit. Not sure why, but between my two dogs woofing to get out for a late night pit stop, or myself needing to do the same thing, or just randomly waking up, when I do, this is the time I see.
So much so that this was the last photo I took on my phone.
How about the time 11:11? I have seen that one a lot, too. Now that I don’t have to wake up as early, being retired and all, I don’t go to bed at 10pm like I have for the last 20 years. I’m lucky if I go to bed at 11pm.
I was intrigued with this notion of seeing the same number. So of course I googled it and found this website.
The author discusses this very notion. Numbers appear digitally everywhere in our modern, technology-based society. Is it all a mere coincidence? Or does our consciousness seek a synchronicity with time?
Or is it aliens? Insert “Outer Limits” or “Twilight Zone” music here.
I am certain there are all kinds of scientific explanations for this, as well as physiological and psychological reasons, yada yada, that I choose to see this time so frequently.
According to this article, the author outlines a numerical list with numerological meanings behind each number. Now I won’t go so far as to state that I believe in numerology, but I looked at the number 4, my birth day, and 12, which is my birth month.
Number 4 – Stability, work, labor, structure, foundation, earthly things, the cube, the square. Being satiated.
Number 12 – Spiritual strength, divine protection. It’s a related form of 3, since when it’s broken down, 1 + 2 equals 3. 1212 calls to mind the idea of one foot in front of the other, 1-2-1-2….
Hmmmm…12/04…not that far from 12:34.
When I read this, it really resonated with me since these traits and values are very strong in me. If you have ever taken any temperament assessments like Myers-Briggs, Keirsey or True Colors, you would be familiar with values as they relate to a our personalities.
The author discusses numerology and other supernatural and spiritual reasons for number sightings. I am not sure what the universe is trying to tell me.
I could write a big-old-blog post about this phenomenon but I don’t feel like it right now. I don’t have time.
I just see time.
Does this happen to you? And what numbers do you see?
