You might be asking, why do I see 1111 everywhere? Why do I see phone numbers with an abundance of sequential 1’s? Why do I wake up to a commercial telling me to come to 1111 Madison Boulevard to buy a new mattress? Why do I receive a text at exactly 11:11 AM or PM nearly every day? Once or twice could be a coincidence, but now I see it daily and it might even be a little bit annoying?

If 1111 seems to be permeating your life right now, it’s a message from your angels. If it feels like no accident, it’s because it is no accident. Your angels are trying to tell you something, and they’re not going to stop until you listen. The numerology of the number 1 on its own is a powerful step in a new direction, as the first number in the sequence it has everything within it that new beginnings and fresh starts entail, and 1111 is a hard-to-ignore version of 1. Here are 11 reasons you’re seeing 1111:

11 Things Seeing 1111 Can Mean
1111: Doorways are opening up for you and you need to walk through them. Are you stuck in a dead end job that you hate, and are desperate to get out of? Are you constantly being belittled and treated like you don’t matter? 1111 is telling you to trust your gut and figure out what you really want so that you can go through these doors that the angels are opening up for you. If you’ve been asking for a better opportunity, you might need to go out looking for what you want a little more. There’s only so much that your angels can bring to your front door.
1111: Your negativity is hurting you. If you are constantly looking for the bad in life, you’re going to find it. Yes, there is pain and suffering in the world, but if you’re seeing 1111 over and over, your angels might be asking you to look at what you can be grateful for in this life. Think back to ten years ago, and look at how your outlook has changed along with your life. If you miss how things used to be, how can you bring some of that joy back into your life? Or are you just looking at the past with rose-colored glasses? If this is the case, the angels are asking you to re-evaluate your thankfulness. Try to come up with a list of eleven things you’re thankful for and see what happens.
1111: You need to decide what you really want. Maybe you feel stuck or directionless in life. If you don’t know what to do next, just try doing something different. Being stuck in the same old routine day in and day out will only lead to stagnation and unhappiness. Just going to a new restaurant or trying an activity you haven’t tried before can reinvigorate you and you might meet a new friend or discover a new hobby. If you can’t get out of the house, just try reading a new book or listen to an album suggested by a friend. There’s nothing like expanding your mind to find what your soul is looking for, and even if you don’t find your calling during your first try, you’ll at least have something to talk about besides what happened at work.
1111: Your prayers are being heard. If nothing else, this is a sign that your angels have heard you. They hear your prayers and they’re right there with you. Angels need direction and won’t act on their own, but they will always give you protection and love and they’ll send you little signs to show you they’re there. Show them that you’ve noticed their presence and love yourself like they love you. Their lives are devoted to you and your daily actions, so why not show them that you can love yourself just as much? You are a worthy, wonderful person and you only hurt yourself by making yourself smaller so that others can feel bigger, or by remaining in a situation that gives you no room to grow. Even if you aren’t sending out prayers, is it obvious that you want something more? If so, this could be why you’re receiving 1111 from your angels.
1111: Your thoughts are becoming things. Do you hate your body? Your job? Your stuff? Your situation? Your life? If you focus your energy on suffering, your suffering will multiply. While there is no way to eliminate all suffering from your life or the lives of others, you can do your part. Your angels will celebrate when they see you celebrating others. Volunteer at a soup kitchen, donate necessities to a shelter, or tutor a child who’s struggling, and do these things with joy. This charitable energy will take the focus off of yourself and onto someone who is in need of love. By being someone who gives love, it will be easier to love yourself and realize that there is more to life than appearances and collecting material goods. If you can give your time, money, and/or energy to charity at least once a month, try it and see what happens.
1111: Ask for what you want out loud. Ask yourself what you want, ask others for what you want, and ask your angels for what you want. You don’t have to be demanding or unkind, just ask for what you want. If you feel you deserve a promotion or if you think a transfer to a different city might brighten your outlook, ask. If you want to continue your education but don’t have the funds, ask if there are scholarships or grants that you could take advantage of. If you are interested in someone, maybe it’s time to ask them out. 1111 is asking you to go for what you want, so if you know what you want, ask!
1111: Live your life like the person you are. You’ve heard it before, but you are a unique person with unique talents and a unique soul. There is no one just like you. If there is someone that you want to pattern yourself after, someone who inspires you, there’s nothing wrong with that, but if you try to be that person exactly, you will fail. You are you, and the purest expression of your soul’s energy at the highest vibration will be what truly benefits yourself and those around you, and your angels know this! They’ve known you your whole life, so be who you truly are!
1111: Stop trying to be perfect. No one is perfect and just the desire to be perfect shows that you would like to be better than you are. That alone is good enough. We are all on our own journey, and to self-sabotage every time you make a mistake by giving up or spiraling into sadness is not helping anyone. We all slip and fall in life, and the important thing to do is to get back up rather than wallowing. When you look at others and compare yourself to them, realize that they have had their own share of mistakes and failures that you never saw, and they compare themselves to others just like you. 1111 is here to let you know that no matter how many mistakes you make, you are not taken out of the running.
1111: Be your own hero. Maybe you’re waiting for a hero to come and save you. 1111 is letting you know that you are all you need, and your angels are ready to help you become everything that you are. You are a wonderful human being and the commitment to believing this is your first step on the path to greatness. Look at what you want in a hero, and then take the steps to become that hero, even if you don’t receive a medal or a talk show gig. Heroes are people who choose the high road every day, so take that first small step, and cheer yourself on!
1111: Think outside the box. Do you think that unless you win the lottery or become a star, you can’t be happy? The lottery or stardom do not guarantee happiness. They guarantee lots of people trying to take what you have and a possible loss of control due to excess. Look inwards to find what you really want. Is it love? Then give love. Is it peace? Then provide peace. Is it joy? Then give joy. Whatever you give, you can get in return, and you can develop yourself to give this regularly, so that you can receive it regularly. You are a wealth of love and joy and there is no shortage of those who need it. If you can give this to one person, then it will return to you!
1111: Don’t be scared of the unknown. Maybe you’ve been wanting to share your talents, but you’re afraid of being laughed at, or of not being good enough. Maybe you don’t know where to start, or where to go. Maybe you have been hurt and don’t want to be hurt again. The truth is, there will always be pain in life, but with pain comes joy as well. If you are loving others, loving yourself, and doing your best, then that is the best life you can live. The amount of recognition or accolades you receive isn’t what is important, it is how much joy you bring to yourself and others, even if it’s just you and one other person, and whether or not your soul is cheering. A grand prize is just a hunk of metal or a fleeting moment of attention. The amount of love you were able to spread will be what matters, and 1111 wants you to experience that!
If you’re seeing the angel number 1111, look around for the joy in life and the potential for new joy, joy that you can create. Stop waiting and wallowing and do what you would do if you knew you could not fail. Take the first step that you’ve been putting off or ignoring and see what doorways you can step through with your angels with their message of 1111!
