Synchronicity reveals the meaningful connection between the subjective and objective world. – Carl Jung
With the beginning of a new decade and our increasing desire to belong and seek a higher purpose, each week we will be exploring different elements of spirituality. We will cover what they are, what they mean for us and explore the science or mysteries behind them. For our first blog, we will be exploring synchronicity and the hidden meaning of repeating numbers.
Given how often we look at a huge array of screens and are bombarded with information in our daily lives, it could seem like sheer coincidence when we see repeat numbers regularly. Numbers like 11.11 or 222 or 888. How often have you found yourself noticing these numbers? Is there more to it than coincidence?
Firstly, some may narrow this down to simply being our Reticular Activating System hard at work. The Reticular Activating System (RAS) is a part of our brain stem. It’s a collection of nerves which act like a sort of filter which will sort through unnecessary information we are bombarded with every day, so only the things that matter can get through to us. Say you think about buying a new blue car. Soon, you begin to notice so many blue cars all around you. That’s the power of the RAS. Is that all it is or is there more to it than this?
Depending on how deep down the spirituality rabbit hole you’re willing to go, there are some incredible energies that work with us each and every day and the more we listen, the easier they are to detect. The Universe can use numbers to communicate with us. It will send us very subtle messages so that we will look at something. For example, when you look at your phone and the time is 11:11, or when you look at how long is left on your dishwasher and its 2.22. It could even be numbers on a number plate or in a phone number on a piece of paper. These repeating numbers are a reminder that something very magical and Divine is happening in your life!
So what is synchronicity and why do I keep seeing repeating numbers?
Perhaps there just might be a little more to it than we realise. Everything in life is synchronicity. It’s one big, beautiful dance. However, due to the lives we lead now, we have lost touch with a side of ourselves that is much more in tune with the mysteries of the universe. We have become complacent and rely heavily on our 5 physical senses: see, touch, taste, hear and smell. A lot of synchronicity goes over our heads because we don’t listen to what we feel. Numbers are a great way for the Universe or your Higher Self to draw your attention to this.
Have you been seeing triple repeating numbers? If you are seeing a certain repeating number sequence over and over again, make a note of it. Different repeating numbers can have different meanings. These numbers are basically how your Higher Self or spirit guide or the universe or even God, whatever you want to call it, reaches out to you. When you pay attention to the context in which these numbers show up, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly what it is your Higher Self or spirit guide is trying to draw your attention to.
Seeing Numbers Means You’re in Alignment with The Universe
Generally, when you keep seeing repeating numbers, it also means you’re in alignment with the Universe. It’s a gentle reminder from your Higher Self that you are on the right path and you’re never alone. These numbers are one way in which synchronicity makes itself obvious to us.
What does being in alignment mean? It means you’re in the right place, at the right time. It means no matter what’s happening, no matter what it looks like, you’re not alone. It means in the end, things always work out.
Some people think when they’re out of alignment, is when things aren’t working out. But the truth is you’re never not in alignment. It’s simply that at the moment, you’re letting whatever you’re facing dictate the way you see things. So you’re seeing things as “bad” or “negative.” These numbers are gentle nudges from the Universe, letting you know there’s a perfect plan, and you’re doing just fine. Even though it seems like you aren’t right now.
Are you on the path for a Spiritual Awakening?
Seeing repeat numbers is often the very tipping point for exploring our own spirituality and beginning to wake our subconscious. So what exactly is a spiritual awakening aside from its fluffy pop-culture reputation for being a bit ‘woo woo’? In a nutshell, it’s waking up to the fact that there is more to life than the physical. It’s knowing you’re so much more than flesh, blood, and all things physical.
It’s knowing that everything is, because of Spirit, or Consciousness.
It’s realizing how you create your own reality, not just by physical action, but by working with your thoughts, emotions, and your life force, or spirit.
What do the numbers mean?
Each sequence of numbers has its own interpretation, however, the best way to understand what they mean and why you keep seeing them is to take a moment to be present and ask yourself how your feeling in the moment and what is your mind focused on. Listening to your intuition is key to unlocking certain understanding about your high self. And, it takes practice. We aren’t used to listening to our intuition let alone, take its advice on board! Below is a jumping-off point to what these numbers may be representing in your life.
1111 - The wake-up call.
1111 is a wakeup call from the Universe, telling you to pay attention to what is happening around you. It is the number of manifestation, meaning that you are in charge of your destiny and where you are right now, is exactly where you’re meant to be. It’s a very positive sign. You are on the right path. Listen to your intuition. It’s speaking to you.
222 - Relationships and connections.
2 is the number of partnerships and love. 222 means that it is time to start really paying attention to the people who are coming into your life (or are already part of it). It is the Universe telling you that your soulmate (or someone who will play a major role in your life) is nearby. Everything is happening in divine timing so don’t rush.
333 - Find balance.
This is a trinity number and it often starts coming up when you need to align your mind, body, and soul. It could be a little alert to let you know that one of the areas of your life is out of balance and you need to fix it. Focus on getting enough sleep, eating well, moving your body and making space for you.
444 - Inner circle.
If you keep seeing numbers 444, start paying more attention to your inner circle. Remember that it isn’t just your close family, it is also your closest friends. It is also a sign that you need to remember your roots, where you came from. Think of your past. Maybe there are some valuable life lessons that you have forgotten about but could really use right now.
555 - Change is coming.
If you see 555 everywhere, then there is huge momentum for you to move in a new direction.

It is time to move forward with new experiences.
