The spooky 11:11 is baaaack.

Every so often, I start seeing the numbers 11:11. What’s really spooky is that I’m not the only one.

It started several years ago, and I wrote about it somewhere on my old weblog but I can’t seem to locate the post. It started with purchases that totaled $11.11. Or change from purchases. Then, it seemed like every time I looked at a digital clock, it said 11:11. I go through spurts like that every once in a while.

It’s happening again. At least with the clocks — in my car, my bedroom, the VCR. I understand that it’s likely that somewhere in my subconscious I’m telling myself to look at a clock when I sense it’s that time. But that doesn’t explain why it only happens every so often, with no logical reason why it should start again.

I’m an irreverent non-believer, which you might not believe because I love to conjure rituals and am fascinated by synchronicities — especially because everything in life really happens so randomly.

Some people are born into poverty and ignorance and some into affluence and privilege. Some get cancer and some depressed and some breeze through life full of joy and energy.

Yesterday, I relaxed for a couple of hours at a friend’s pool — gossiping, reading, book-reviewing, keeping cool and privileged in a manicured back yard of the lovely home that she got in her divorce settlement. And across the city and across the world, others sweltered, suffered, starved. It’s a crapshoot that we begin where we begin.

One one one one. The beginning number. 11:11. Supposedly it means that I’m on the right track. I sure don’t feel like it.

It’s spooky.

  1. I have been getting the 11:11 thing for 14 years now and have only just found out that I am not alone. It comes and goes and it seems to be pretty intense at the moment. I had a dream two nights ago that prompted me to google it and I am pleasantly surprised by all the info that is available.

  2. I don’t see 11:11 so often. We have 24 hour time here in Sweden.. But when I check my watch it’s often 1:11, 2:22, 13:33 or something. I also see the numbers when I post in forums and so on.. Really weird.. I try telling my self it’s coincidences.
    It started 1998 or 1999 for me.

  3. My peronal number ends with 1111
    When the time is right I will tell you the inner meaning of 1111.
    It is a door we all have to pass through sooner or later.
    God Bless You!

  4. i keep seeing 9/11 everywhere too…when school started again the teacher was handing out textbooks and my textbook number was 9-11…i see 9-11 everyday on clocks and tvs too…when i bought lunch one day it cost 9 dollars and 11 cents…a book i read had 911 pages…when i download, sometimes i check on how fast they were going, and one time it was downloading at 9.11 kb/s…i see it everywhere and want to know what it means. today is september the 11th so i decided to look it up.

  5. Today it was 8:11, 11.11, 14.11, 17.11 and 20.11. Basically for the last few months I see 11 in the minutes part of the time when I look at either my watch, mobile, computer or work phone to see what time it is. I started noticing it initially when it was 9.11 or 7.11 because they are common to anyone who knows of the Twin Towers or a chain of convenience stores. If so many people have this, is it meaningless or meaningful? I don’t think my life has changed. It’s boring, I work, I go home, I go out at the weekend, I’m still single and I still haven’t won the Lotto. What does it mean?

  6. This really freaks me out to because about a month ago i would start seeing the time on the clock @9:11 and i started noticing it and then after september 11 has passed i look at the clock at 8:11, 9:11, and 10:11. and i just want to know whait it means? so if you know email me at

  7. Been seeing 9:11 am/pm for years. Used to freak me out. Then I just got used to it. It goes through phases of intensity. I used to add/subtract/multiply the numbers in every way trying to figure it out. Then I figured I must be noticing it because of my subconscious mind. It is weird. Used to freak out my wife too. Every time she would ask me the time, I would just give her this look and she knew it was 9:11…could mean something…maybe not?!?!?! It’s fascinating that so many people are experiencing the same phenomenon.

  8. SEPTEMBER 11–what a theory. I have the same 9:11 theory, that has been happeneing for about a year. WHY??? everyone wants to know. It’s scary…but could it be something good. Why do the select few of us only see this? We are all curiouos, because we are all on this website, desperately trying to come to some peace and conclusion. It drives me crazy too, but I am used to it by now!! I dont know why either. Noone has an answer? I think it’s something personal to each and every one of us, maybe to show that we need to appreciuate our lives more??? Well, feel free to email me with any thoughts……

  9. Ever since this summer, I have been seeing 9:11 constantly. Mostly 9:11 p.m. But anyway, glad that I’m not the only one. Is this saying something like we are all connected in some way? Or maybe everytime we sin, which is very often for an average human. Just my 2 cents.

  10. I have been seeing 11:11 and 1:11 for about three years now, at first i was like whatever and just pushed it aside, but it kept coming after me like a sign from somewhere. it really got me thinking about life and everything, i think it means you have one chance to live with your lives to decide what you want in your lives. I definatly have screwed up in my life. i really think its a higher power trying to steer you the rigt way. At first i thought i would die on november 11 or something but it went by and i didnt then i thought jan 11 and it went by. So now i just truly believe it is meant for everyone who sees it something different. It is important none the less. I tell others about it and they think i am crazy and its just a coincidence but its not.

  11. It’s the strangest thing. I woke up once in the middle of the night. I was having a nightmare about someone attacking me & the man holding me down in my dream whispered “The answer is 333” and I woke up instantly. I didn’t think that much about it because I have all sorts of strange dreams that don’t mean anything at all..just silly manifestations of my sub-conscious. But ever since that day, I have been seeing 333 everywhere. Reading books, I’ll happen to glance down at the page number and it’s 333. Looking at the clock all the time, it ends up being 3:33. Reading articles, I see 333. I know for a fact that I’m not looking for those sets of numbers. Perhaps it is my sub-conscious. I’ve tried to ignore it, that hasn’t helped. I’ve prayed that it will stop happening, but it won’t. I’ve tried to search for the meaning of 333 if there is any & ended up confusing myself even more with strange & inconsistent definitions. The truth is, I don’t think anyone knows why this type of phenomenom happens. Hell, perhsps there isn’t an answer. We don’t know exactly how the human brain works. Perhaps it is just my mind making me notice these numbers since my dream. Perhaps I’m doing this to myself. But if there is a meaning to it, WHAT DOES IT MEAN?! It’s killing me…I’m tired of it! I want it to stop! I feel like I’m going insane with it. If someone can shed some light on this, please feel free to email me. Thanks.

  12. I have been seeing 333 for years now. Like others I’ll wake and look at the clock and it will be 3:33 AM. It does come in spurts, I’ll go for a bit without seeing it as often, then it comes very,very often. I’m a Christian, and I’m one of those who believe we are living in the last days of this current world system. What 333 has to do with that I’m not sure, I feel like it does but who can say for certain. But inside I feel like it is not a coincidence that it comes up so often. Others I have told who initially thought I was off base have noticed it when they are with me. People I meet everywhere seem to agree on one thing, these are ominous times.

  13. Anyone wishing to have a discussion about what they are going through can reach me at “T” your posting sounds so much like what I felt and went through for a good while. I finally have come to peace about it, and actually I find comfort when I see 333 now.

  14. Not until about 2 minutes ago did I realize that others like me are experiencing this11:11 thing. For several years now 11:11 keeps intering my life. It’s funny how I will look at a digital clock and it’s 11:11 am or pm. The numbers are working in my mind somehow…havd no idea why. Can anypone enlighten me. One of my daughters sees 11:11 also a lot. I thought at first it was some kind of sign telling my death date. I am 57 now, so it seems resonable, though I had planned on living much longer. The number 11 came up twice on my way to work this morning. I drive 50 miles to teach part time at a College and play this game to make the time and miles pass more quickly. Anyway, this is the first time 11 came up…and twice! Any thoughts? Steve

  15. No I am getting spooked! I ordered new license plates a few years back and instead of my FERGS 21, or FERGS 66 that I asked for they sent me FERGS 11. I had been seeing 11:11 for years but getting the plate made me look over my shoulder more than a few times. Every time I got into or out of the car it forced me to wonder. I have never heard of this 11:11 “thing” until it came to me a few hours ago to look it up, and wow, there are tons of stuff about it!!! Just a few more thoughts I had about it. Thanks, Steve

  16. Ive been sighting 11:11 twice a day i.e. morning and evening every day for about 3 months now..
    Enough to find that it was so odd i should google it..
    You are not alone..

  17. I have, for about 15 years been seeing this sort of thing. It changes from time to time but can remain the same combo of numbers for days or weeks. I often get
    a strange feeling that I should pay attention and I often look for ways to use this info. It is very hard sometimes to connect the dots, but many times I find it usefull in my daily life
    I wish I knew the reason for this but like most I find myself still in the dark.

  18. I’m shocked to see how many people are experiencing the same thing as I am. I keep seeing the number 11 everywhere. This all started a few months ago when my friend told me she kept seeing 9:11 in the morning and in the night. Then it changed she said she began to see it all the time and that’s when I started seeing it everywhere in my car, my room, at work when I print out a receipt. ($411) I think its more than just a coincidence. I really want to know what it is.

  19. I also see 333. I have seen it for a few years now. I first started seeing after I went to a church camp. I prayed that the spirit wake me or tell me when to pray. I started waking up at 333am at first. Then like other people it started to show up during hte day..milage, license plates, clocks, and so on. I know it’s not coincidence and i’m not the type of person who is on a mission to find these things consciously. we wre living in a special time and I believe that God reveals himself to people in different ways.

  20. im not sure whats going on or the meaning, the number 666 keeps on appearing to me.
    It can happen anytime anyplace and in any circumstance ??? someone once told me that this means change? but i get the impression that somethings gonna happen but when im not sure?
    its freaking me out can anyone shed some light for me!

  21. I have 25 years with 111 number, I have had miracles with this number in diferent ways.
    I have never tought that someone could see the same thing like me.
    I think is wonderful, powerful I have had alot of experiences, I was born in Mexico City, I am living in San Diego.
    The number 111 is in my brain, my heart and my soul.

  22. I want to tell all of you, a little of my research about numerology, with 25 years of experience.
    My name is Raul Said, all my parents came from Lebanon.
    I want to share a little bit about my own numerology that nobody knows and it does not exist in any book, I started with the number 11, and 111 like I said in my last post, this number I feel is part of my blood, my brain and my heart, it has been very important in all my life , maybe you could think that I am crazy, but I think that my comunication with someone ( Angel, Jesus, God, I dont know who could be ) but in another dimension is through the numbers, they have guided to me all time, they tell me If something is good for me or not, but is dificult to explain that.
    I am going to tell to all of you you something that I think no one has discovered ,because I never heard about that, everybody put all about the number eleven in september 11 2001
    In the alphabet with the numbers is like that A=1 B=2 and so on.
    N= 14 Y=25
    E= 5 O=15
    W= 23 R=18
    Total 42 + 69 = 111
    New York =111 !!!
    If someone knew about this, please let me know.
    Thank you

  23. We have friends to whom the numbers 11:11 are very significant. Each day at those times, they stop what they are doing and tell each other “I love you”.

  24. I just wanted to say that this thing is real. I’ve been seeing the numbers all the time now and I know it is not subliminally programmed into my mind by repetition. I know this because i’ll see it on the microwave as soon as I look over at the clock when my wife is cooking something. I see it on clocks that are off time. I see it on the DVD player when I look up during a movie. This is no joke and something is really going on. I just don’t know what yet.
    Good luck to you all,

  25. I thought I was going nuts, I too see the number 11 on clocks. Usually 7:11. I decided to look this phenomen up to see if anyone else has had this experience. I am glad to know I am not alone. Any significance to 7:11 besides the obvious 24 hour convenience store?

  26. I see 11:11 a lot… but I see the world different than most people. I have continuously argued with the story we are all told. I feel I have to discredit this whole unreal, unpeaceful, un-harmonic life. For hundreds of years this world has been going into the crapper, and we all believe one person can’t make a difference… when you see 11:11 imagine someone saying one ONE ONE ONE to us… like 1 person can make a difference… Rosa Parks did, she died recently and she shall forever be remembered for the difference she made… granted there may have been hundreds of people before her to resist sitting in the back of the bus or any of the hundreds of unequalities in life back then… but that means hundreds tried to make a difference… still only one person did… we all live in this fantasy the government created for us to feel safe which is why there are “no aliens” if your ignorant to believe that theres forrests of planets and that not one could allow life… your thinking pretty shallow. Life existed here somehow… why not elsewhere… anyhow they say they want us to be safe so they prevent us from learning about things and only place crap on the media. ONE person is to make a difference, and maybe this 11:11 is in fact stating your on your correct path, or you have the strength … seeing 11:11 is not enough we all have the need to research it because it means something to us… how many of us will actually be a person 1 person who makes a difference?

    ??????????? Why bother looking into it if you have no desire to use it???????????

    check out the perfect circles version of “IMAGINE” originally by John Lennon….
    People say that im a dreamer……. BUT I’m not the only one…..

  27. Hello, the number 911. Its everywhere. Ill recive text messeges at 9:11 or ill get a call at 9:11. I’ll see the number about 5 times a day. At first I thought it was just a coincidence so I just kept it all to my self, but then it started getting scary so I told my dad and my best friends. I let my dad know every time I incounter the number, He gets scared too, just today I asked him what time it was and he looked at a digital clock in the house and it showed 9:11, we were schocked , about a half an hour later I went to my room and looked at the digital clock and it showed 9:11. Sometimes ill see the clock 5 minuets before and prevent my slef from seeing the time knowing its soon going to strike 9:11, but usually when I do that I run in to the nhumber another way. I see 9:11 everywhere at school or on tv or on the computer. Once I tried closed a game on my phone and accidently pressed 3 numbers and it just happend to be 911. My dad heard 2 radio broadcasts and they both talked about people seeing this number everywhere. Its crazy. PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO ON WHY i KEEP SEEING THIS PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

  28. People Laugh at me sometimes when i tell them about seeing 9:11 everywhere but its quite scary cause its like 5 times a day and even when I prevernt me self from seeing the clock at that time, ill still see the number everywhere.

  29. Hello my fellow 911 sight seers! Whew! As a strong christian operating in the prophetic, I know enough to take note regarding the countless times 9:11 has appeared each time I’ve looked at the clock. I’ve been praying and have my intercessor friends pray into this too. One friend told me to read each book of the Bible, Chapter 9, verse 11 and see what may speak to me. I havent’ done that…yet. I will continue to pray into this until I hear from Heaven. When I do, I’ll let you know what God is saying. In the meantime, please join me in asking God, The Revealer of Mysteries, what this 9:11 is all about.

  30. I have seen the time 9:11 since a yr & 1/2 before 9/11. Even after the events of Sept. 11th, I still see it all the time. Even this morning. I got on here to look it up and my cell phone clock said 9:11. A few minutes later I looked at my comp clock and it said 9:11! I believe that God is trying to tell/show us something. Possibly that the end of times is drawing near and that we need to be prepared. But as to a specific meaning to the time. I am stumped. What’s really weird is that around the same time I started seeing 9:11 my mom started seeing the time 1:11, 2:22, etc. She still does today. Its nice to read other ppl have been seeing the same things. My life verse is Jeremiah 29:11 and I felt impressed recently to read Revelation 9:11. By itself it is pretty cut and dry but with the preceeding and post verses it makes more sense. Although it didnt give me any clear understanding of why I am seeing 9:11. God Bless.

  31. Hi Carrie,
    I would like to hear more about your 9:11 experiences and what God has shown you regarding them. God Bless
    Do you have any other way to communicate other than this site?

  32. Hello Jess:
    Huh…I typed out a reply a few days ago and apparently it didn’t get posted. Anyway, you may send any email to me at: carrie880 at yahoo dot com. I look forward to hearing from you.

  33. I have been seeing the numbers 12/13 for about 5 years now. I see them on the clock every day and every night. I will have bad dreams like I’m being hit by a mack truck and when I jump out of bed it’s 12:13. Lately I will fall out of bed and look at the clock and it’s 12:13. My birthday is also 12/13. What does this mean? It’s driving my insane!

  34. you dont know me, but i happened to run into your site and ive been seeing the number eleven for only a couple years now. its so weird. so it started off radomlly, i thought it was funny at first how random it was all the time, then i started getting closer to one of my friends and we ended up going out…yes girlsfriends! and i havent had a boyfriend since. i would see 11 everywhere! and of course i was hiding it from my parents then on 11/11 of last year i got caught in my room with my girlfriend at the time. i thought it ment bad luck! but i think its too early to tell. weird thing is, my girlfriend at that time i happened to fall in love with and her name has a total of 11 letters & every one of our “songs” has to do with the number 11 somehow. other than seeing it all the time, when i think about her to this day its like my mind is forcing me to look up and i happen to see the number 11 its so weird! i heard its a sign to let you know that “everythings going to be ok” i dont know. its almost to the point where its annoying. but im still trying to figure this whole thing out!

  35. Whenever i “involuntary” look at a digital watch or clock the time changes to the next minute at that precise moment, this has been happening to me as far back around 1990, it really bothers me a lot so i only use an analogue watch now but i cant shy away completely from digital clocks, this is a 100% occurance through “involuntary” glance.

  36. whenever i look at a digital clock its always, 3:11, 9:11, 7:11, 2:11… anything:11. its really frustrating sometimes, because i see it about 10 times a day. ive read about the 11:11, i see that sometimes but not all the time. so i kind of wonder about what i see.

  37. I too have seen the numbers 9:11, 11:11, 1:11 & including 666! The last one to me is most scary! I don’t know why these numbers keep re-appearing in my and others lives. The one thing I am glad to know is that I am not alone!! 🙂 I heard that any numbers like 11:11 or 1:11 are said to mean “new beginnings” and is suppose to be a good thing! A positive thing! Now the 9: 11 thing is another thing, personally I think that we/I have become sensitized to this number sequence after the tramas of Sept. 11 2001. I believe that our minds are very sensitive to these numbers, and are now noticing it more often, even though it may have been shown to us in the past pre- 9-11, and we/I did not notice it! Sensitivity may be the problem there! Conditioning for a better word! Now the 666 number is spooky! I see this daily in my life, on shopping receipts, license plates, advertisements, phone numbers, change returned at stores, you name it! I don’t know what the meanin is there. I only cansay this has become a daily thing in my life! I think it may be Satan’s way of letting us/me know he is around and well! I think to, considering the times we are in, that he is here to collect souls, and it may be a good thing to get intouch with God and hang on to him tightly! I do feel this has something to do with Satan, appearing to us/me to let me know he is around! We are in a time of great deceptions, I personally feel I need to get in touch with God and keep my faith in the forefront! These are my thought on what I think is truely going on today! GB L.

  38. Everyday I always see 11 in the minutes place on the clock. It is always occuring when I take the one glance at the clock. It has been happening for quite some time and I have no idea what it means or if is is a coincidence.

  39. OMG, I am officially freeked out by seeing the number 911 too much lately. I am happy to know I am not alone. I always notice it on clocks but I attribute that to just my mind being programmed to look at the clock when its 9:11. Its been happening for a few years now but lately its been getting to me. For example my cell phone just rang and when I flipped it to open the clock on it read 9:11! Another example, I was cooking something and the box said it will be done in 10 minutes. Well, when I looked at the clock to see when it will be done it was 8:51..which means the food was done @ 9:11!! This really needs to stop happening.

  40. As i was reading this website getting freaked out cuz im seeing 911 everywhere i looked at my cell phone to my left and the time is 11:09 pm :O. Also a few weeks ago at work i was about to lock my car and go back into the building but then for some reason i got back in car looked at the clock and it was 9:11 pm and i realised at that very moment my keys were in the ignition and i would have locked my self out.

  42. Funny.. I keep seeing 11:11 also.. I’ve been seeing it for years now.. Lateley the past few days, when I look at the clock it’s 9:11.. Im not sure i like seeing that.. Knowing what it all means is the big question.

  43. What is the story with all of this!Ive noticed the number 69 poping up everywhere throughtout my day time routine.It has appeared on reciepts,clocks,change ive recieved from a shop,television everything all in the same day!!Take for example i was heading into a bar in town with a mate a few weeks back and i was telling him about my strange happenings.He just laughed at me telling me that i was being too suspicious and maybe i am but just as the bus had come to a stop the number 69 was posted on a street post bang in the middle of our window in the bus.So i rushed to the bar naturally being irish to drink away the strange goin ons!!Hopefully the number 69 means i got one coming to me so happy days anyway.good luck, Andy Meehan ,Dublin.

  44. Hi, I been really freaked out about this so I decided to go online and see if there was any information on this. I had my son in Sept and ever since then I been seeing 11 past the hour everytime I look at a clock. It is always 2:11-3:11-4-11 and so on. Sometimes I wake up to fed him when he cries and it is 2:11 or so on. It just got me freaked out. Do anyone have any information what this is all about.

  45. Eleven Eleven 11:11
    I have been witnessing, living with and encountering this for a very long time(probably 30 years). I can remember being a child and running into this 11:11 on all clocks, in stores when I receive change back etc. I can look at a clock that I know is probably 5 minutes fast and it will be 11:11. I can then go into another area of my home a short time later where the clock is accurate and again I see 11:11. I though I was going crazy. I have also pointed it out to my husband who finds it really strange. I have decided to use it to my advantage and make decisions surrounding those numbers. They have not let me down yet.

  46. 11:11 – The true meaning.
    In the summer of 05 I began seeing 11:11 very frequently, and I began looking into the real meaning behind it. My search for answers combined with some unusual events in my life led me to discover that 11:11 stands for a very important event which will be occurring in our solor system at exactly 11:11 Universal Time, on December 21, 2012. This is the precise time that a galactic universal alignment will take place, which marks the end Myan Calendar, and the beginning a of new earth.
    Mankind will be entering into a new era, a huge shift in planetary consciousness will occurr, and
    if you are seeing 11:11 then you are being sent a message/warning from your “higher self”. You have a special role to play, a pre-determined purpose you must fullfill in your life before this time.
    Look within yourself to find the answers.
