The 11:11 In Our Lives


While cruising around online, I found a very interesting article by Steve Pavlina about 11:11.  Many people are openly talking about it now. For some it takes courage to share this phenomenon.  I have been overwhelmed with 11:11 visuals for over 20 years. Some interesting 11’s started showing up in my life 24 years ago, when I married Cody, who is 11 years younger than me.  My son Wade (from my first marriage) was 11 years younger than Cody.  My mothers husband Jim, (now passed on) was 11 years younger, and I was told my great grandparents were 11 years apart in age as well.  This number shows up everywhere for me in many combination’s.  My friends are asking me why they see 11:11 on the clock all the time, and what it means.  Why do they happen to notice that time or number, and why more than any other time or number?   I am so used to 11:11 being a part of my daily life, and did not realize it was happening to people everywhere, around the world.  Many questions have been raised as to the meaning of this number combination.  A site dedicated to answering some of these questions is Eleven:Eleven at

When I saw Steve Pavlina’s article today, I wanted to share it with you.  I will share a small excerpt from it, in hopes you read the whole article, as it is an interesting read.

What Is 11:11? By Steve Pavlina

There are many levels on which to explain 11:11. I’ll start with the most basic physically observable level and move up from there. This will take a bit of explaining.

11 is a number of course, and 11:11 is a time on a clock. Some very small percentage of people will begin to encounter 11:11 as well as the number 11 more often than chance would indicate — so much more often that you may think you’re in the midst of some crazy conspiracy once you begin to notice it.

If you’ve seen the Jim Carey movie The Number 23, there’s a similar concept behind it, although that movie is far removed from the actual experience. You may indeed think you’re going a bit nuts at first, but that will eventually pass, and soon you’ll be lead to some fascinating new insights about reality.

Numerologically speaking, you can take any number that appears in your life and sum up the digits. If you end up with a number greater than 11, keep re-summing the digits until you’re at 11 or less.

For example, my ZIP code is 89138.

8 + 9 + 1 + 3 + 8 = 29, and 2 + 9 = 11.

My previous ZIP code was 89129

8 + 9 + 1 + 2 + 9 = 29, and 2 + 9 = 11.

My current phone number is 991-1252

9 + 9 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 2 = 29, and 2 + 9 = 11.

If we include the area code, my phone number is (702) 991-1252.

Those digits sum to 38, and 3 + 8 = 11.

The fascinating thing about 11:11 is that it runs backwards and forwards through one’s life. So when you first start noticing the 11s in your life, you’ll find they run through your past as well as your present and future.  Read More ….
