"It's 11:11, make a wish!"
We've all exclaimed it, at home with our family, or late at night in the car with your best friend, but what does it mean?
Does the number 22 follow you around? Or maybe it's 555? Perhaps you've noticed that 7's like to sneak into your life in unexpected ways, in the greater spiritual community you'll hear them called Angel Numbers but amongst numerologists they are known as Master Numbers. There is no difference between the two phrases, a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, and language is just something humans made up anyway!
Today I want to share what I have learned and observed about Master Numbers and what it means when they appear in your life.
Master numbers are messages from the Universe, our higher selves, or spirit guides. I can't tell you indefinitely where the messages are coming from, the beauty of life lies in its eternal mysteries, what I can say for certain is that the appearance of repeating numbers is a message specifically for you. Because this message is specifically for you, it is important that you check in with your own feelings about the messages coming through.
For example, if the number 3 has always been your number in sports, and you love sports, it could possibly be a message about being active and doing the things you love. Maybe the number 7 reminds you of an old friend who used to talk behind your back, the message could be about betrayal.
As well as your own connections to the numbers, it's important to note what is happening around you in your life when you are receving these vibrational messages. I always tell my clients to keep track of the Master Number messages they receive by noting what number or symbol it was, what time they received it, where they were, and what they were feeling or thinking about at the time. Numerology is inherently scientific, so taking a research based approach to the messages will often times illuminate things we would have otherwise missed.
Without further preamble, let's talk about the 9 Master Numbers...
11: This is the most common master number, the number of the Inspirational Leader. This is like the dial tone when you pick up a land line, it's the Universe or your guides saying, "hey are you listening? Is anyone out there?" The number 11 is like the clear quartz of Master Numbers, it can mean anything. And we have so many personal associations with this number that it can mean something completely different from one person to the next.
This number is a call to being. It's recognition that you are on a new path, that you've begun a new journey. The most important thing to take away when you see this number is that you are supported, you can take the leap, you can trust the process, you can begin whenever you want. Make a wish and it very well may come true!
22: This is the number of the Master Builder. I like to think of this number as "right place right time." It's like the Universe saying, "yup this is exactly where you need to be right now." These numbers come when we are starting to trust in the fact that you are supported, that everything is ok and everything will be ok. It's kinda like an intuition boost, a reminder to trust.
The number 22 is all about solid foundations, so not only should seeing it ease your worries, it should remind you that whatever it is you are doing is in your highest good. It's like your spirit guides giving you two thumbs up.
33: This is the number of the Master Healer and it comes to us when we need to recenter ourselves. Esoterically, this number is about checking in with you mind, body, and soul. It asks us to go inward and focus on our healing journey. These numbers work linearly, so at this stage in your journey it is time to heal the wounds that are holding you back from the next stage of enlightenment.
This number is all about health, so check in with your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. Be very mindful of what you need and don't be afraid to take a break from life if that's what you're called to do. Charity work is also suggested by this number, so if it calls to you, lean into it.
44: This number is powerful af!! It presents itself to you when, in order to level up, you are being called to get deep and dark. Its lower vibration 8 is the Scorpio number, so it's all about change and power and shadow work. It often times presents itself to us when life might be feeling a little shaky and the message it's trying to get across is that you are totally supported by the Universe.
This number is kinda like doing trust falls with your guides. We all know what a trust fall feels like, it's scary and you may lose your breath for a moment but that feeling of being held just when you think it's gonna end in pain, that's the good stuff.
55: Buckle up if you're seeing this number, repeating 5's means that there is a big shift or change coming your way. Life is gonna be different and it may be outside of your control, or it may be that you're the one who makes the change. It can be as simple as shifting to a growth mindset or as unsettling as a breakup. Either way, change is on the horizon!
5's play an inherent role in our spiritual and personal upleveling. Whatever is lost or taken from you during this vibration is something or someone that you don't need. Repeating 5's demand that we learn the beauty of impermanence. Change, I've found, happens in chaos.
66: This the master number of the heart, when you see it you are being called to center yourself into your heart space. This could mean that you need to work on your own self love but it could also mean that romantic love is on its way to you. Either way it's going to be lovely!
If you are seeing repeating 6's it's a reminder to spend time with the people you love. Plan a trip back home, call your sister or an old friend, make lunch plans for the week, message an ex, give your lover a long massage, or spend time alone giving yourself love if that is in your highest good.
77: This is the number of the Master Mystic and one of my absolute favorite numbers. 7 is the number of spirituality and slow change. This number vibration is all about communing with a higher power and asking yourself the tough questions in life. Why are we here? Does any of this have meaning? Is there any point to sentient life?
If you are seeing repeating 7's now is the time to spend time alone, go for a walk, read some Eckhart Tolle, listen to some Alan Watts, or sit alone beside a tree for the afternoon and let it tell you about its life. You are being called to go deeper into the Universe, whether or not you heed the call is completely up to you.
88: Oh baby, if you are seeing repeating 8's big things are coming to you. This is an allusive number and can mean quite a few things. Most importantly it's a sign that the current cycle you're in is coming to a close, and with this rapidly approaching end comes reward and recognition. This could be a raise, a new job opportunity, a new lover that is inline with your life path, an inheritance, pregnancy or a child, or anything that brings you more responsibility.
What I find interesting about this number is that it's the most unpredictable. This is a very karmic number, so whatever is coming your way is directly related to how you have been living this life. Karma works in mysterious ways, so the rewards and acclaim you receive might present itself in a way that you never expected.
99: Here is the Master Humanitarian number. This is it: endings and beginnings. You are going to be aflush with change as projects and life paths are coming to a close and the seeds of change begin to be planted in your day to day. This number asks us to step outside of ourselves and our egos to look at the bigger picture.
When you are seeing repeating 9's, it's a good time to think about your life on a grand scale, plan a backpacking trip, go back to school, read a bunch of non fiction books, start a charity, and just be a good person in general. Life is going to be changing all around you, go with the flow and be open to whatever the next cycle brings!
