Number Sightings: A Moment in Time

A Moment in Time

The time is now 12:34 am
The time is now 12:34 am

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?

  2. I went through a period of always seeing 3:33 (generally in the AM – thanks, night owl genes!) but that’s it really. I love this stuff though. I still fondly remember counting down the seconds to 1:23:45 on 6/7/89 with my Dad and I did 12:12:12 on 12/12/12 with my kids. Good fun!

    1. Seeing 3:33 is my favorite! I get excited when I see that number, especially when I wake up in the middle of the night, because it tells me that I am on the right track about something I am considering. Here is some information from my favorite numerology site: “333,3333: This sign is the Cosmic ‘Yes!’ It indicates a ‘Yes’ to absolutely anything, and that it is the right decision for you.”

  3. Although I don’t see 12:34 a lot, I do see my birthday, 10:22, all the time. I am a spiritual person, so I do believe that the Universe and synchronicity are involved when I see this number and certain others (11:11, 1:11). I tend to pay attention to exactly what I am thinking or doing at the time I see these numbers. But that is just my perspective. It would be nice to hear more about your experiences if you decide to proceed further with understanding this phenomenon.

    Just seeing the picture, I had to chuckle. I really struggle sometimes with dyslexia and today I looked at the digital clock/thermometer in my kitchen window and I thought it said “YES.” I thought, “That’s bizarre.” I looked again and saw 4:23. (The 4 is that open-at-the-top kind of 4).

    This has totally happened to me!
    Lots of times it is 9:11 for me and I feel frightened a bit since that date is so etched in my mind ! I do wonder why we wake to see a specific time or else wake exactly before our alarm rings!
    Very interesting and thought-provoking post!
