What It Means When You See Repeating Numbers

Spiritual Meaning Of Repeating Numbers

By Vanessa Marie Dewsbury

I find the Universe to be so magical and mysterious. And part of the magic and mystery of the Universe is how it brings us signs and messages that help guide us on our journey. These signs and messages can appear in many different ways and one of the most common manifestations of this phenomena is through numbers. Repetitive and consecutive numbers. You may see repeating numbers appearing on the clock/phone, on license plates, advertisements, house numbers, receipts, money amounts, and in other ways.

Seeing repeating numbers can mean many different things to many different people, but if you’re anything like me, you might believe you’re seeing them for a reason. A synchronistic reason. And you may even believe they are being shown to you from a much higher source.

So, what is the significance of seeing repeating numbers and what exactly do they mean? You’re about to find out!

P.S. keep in mind that the following meanings may not ring true for you, so it’s important to use your own discernment and trust your own inner knowing. The answers are always within you.

Meaning: The number 11 is a very powerful number, in fact it’s considered to be a Master number in numerology. When you are seeing 1:11 or 11:11 side by side, it’s a direct message from your Angels bringing you affirmation and confirmation.

When the numbers 1111 keep showing up on your radar, your Angels are telling you that you’re on the right path and everything is aligning for you. And although I believe we’re always on the right path, it acts as a reminder that even if the path is unpleasant and uncomfortable at times, you’re on it for a reason. It means you’re learning valuable lessons that will bring you great insight and wisdom.

Seeing this powerful number means new beginnings are taking place as you actively and consciously work towards manifesting your dreams and desires. You may find that abundance and new opportunities have been flowing to you from all directions. The repeating numbers 111 is also related to success, creativity, and divine inspiration.

Key Tip: When you see the repeating numbers, 1111 stop and take a moment to reflect on where you are and commend yourself for how far you’ve come. Offer gratitude to the Universe for bringing you everything you need to bring your dreams and desires to fruition. Everything is working out exactly as it’s meant to.

Affirmation: I am confident I’m on the right path and I know I’m guided, supported, and loved by the Universe at all times.


Meaning: Seeing the numbers 1212 is often a sign that you’re stepping out of your comfort zone and attempting something completely new and different. These repetitive numbers from your Angels are encouraging you to trust yourself and to trust the Universe as you move forward on your journey. It’s time for you to face the unknown with courage and confidence knowing that whatever you desire, can be yours.

Key Tip: You are stepping into full alignment with your truth and your purpose. There is no need to worry about “how” everything will unfold, it’s the “why” you need to stay anchored to. The “how” will always take care of itself. When you step outside your comfort zone, you step into your greatness. You may find there is some internal resistance that shows up at times, so use your discernment whether you need to pivot your direction a bit or if you need to gracefully move through any resistance that is presenting itself as fear. Consult your intuition to help you decipher the difference.

Affirmation: I face uncertainty with ease and grace. I trust in my uniques gifts and abilities and I embrace this change with excitement for what’s to come.


Meaning: It might be time for you to clear out the old to make space for the new. The repeating numbers 1234 are a clear message from your Angels that it’s time to simplify your life. And not just your outer environment but a spiritual inner cleanse as well. This may mean decluttering your home, doing a social media detox, or performing an “emotional and energetic cleanse.”

Have you’ve been feeling kind of “stuck” in the past lately, or have you been holding onto negative energy or emotions? Are you carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders without realizing it? When you carry unresolved issues in your energy field, it can block you from receiving love, abundance, and opportunities that are meant for you. Baggage can equal blocks, so ask yourself what can you let go of and release so that you feel lighter in your heart, mind, and soul.

Key Tip: Your Angels are showing you the numbers 1234 as a way to communicate that it may be time to let go of the past so you can live fully in the now. If this message resonates with you, you may already know what to do. Clearing out physical and energetic clutter will open a pathway to positive and healing change. Let go of the old, and bring in the new.

Affirmation: I release all things that no longer serve me purpose. I am free, I am loved, and I am whole, just as I am.

Meaning: The number 222 is often associated with your personal relationships including the relationship with yourself. When you are consistently seeing the number 222, the Universe and your Angels are asking you to pay close attention to what is happening in your external and internal world. Have you been feeling out of balance or ungrounded? Have you allowed people into your life who are draining your energy? How healthy is your internal dialogue? Have you been having more negative thoughts then positive ones?

It’s important to keep your relationships in check for the sake of your mental, emotional, and spiritual health. As you maintain your important relationships, you consciously create the energy of harmony and balance.

Key Tip: Reflect on your relationships and see if there is an imbalance of energy in your connections with others. Is it time to set some boundaries with certain people? Also look within and self inquire about the relationship with yourself. Be sure you are nurturing and caring for your own needs and desires.

Affirmation: I value and honour my relationships and foster each one with love, compassion, and care.


Meaning: This number is a trinity number and represents the connection to mind, body, and soul. When you are seeing the repeating numbers 333, the Universe and your Angels are either acknowledging your already healthy connection to mind, body, and soul, or they are reminding you of the importance of fostering this important connection within. When we aren’t connected to self internally, our external world reflects that. This can show up as overwhelm, exhaustion, or emotional and mental breakdowns.

Key Tip: Self-care practices will be super important for you at this time. If you have been neglecting your own needs, then it’s time to prioritize your health and wellness. What can you do to support yourself so that you stay balanced, grounded, and in tune with your soul and spirit? You probably already know exactly what you need to do, so trust that inner knowing and take time nourish your mental, physical, and spiritual needs.

Affirmation: I am aligned with my heart, my soul, and my truth. I am connected to Source and Spirit and I take time to care for myself so that I stay balanced and at peace within.


Meaning: In numerology, the number “4” relates to family and home. If you are seeing 444 it may be a message for you to reflect on the personal relationships with your loved ones. Are there situations happening in your home that need your attention? Have you been avoiding having certain conversations because you’re worried it will create conflict and unease? Is there a break down in communication that needs to be addressed?

Or maybe seeing the repeating numbers 444 is a sign for you to reach out to a family member who you have been avoiding. Perhaps it’s time to work on mending and healing relationships that in your heart, are very important to you. If something immediately came to your mind then it’s most likely exactly what you need to invest some of your time, energy, and focus on.

Key Tip: Look within your home at the relationships and situations that may require your immediate attention. Trust that you can effectively communicate the right words to say in order to bring peace, healing, and truth to any situation.

Affirmation: I am grateful for my family and I value and cherish the relationships I have with everyone I love.

Meaning: It’s time for you to move in a new direction! Or if you’re already in the process of change, keep going! Seeing the repeating numbers 555 means momentum, re-direction, and change. It’s a sign that you are opening yourself up to opportunities and experiences that are in alignment with your goals, dreams, and desires. Take each step one day at time and don’t look too far down the road if it’s causing you anxiety or stress. Although this change may be unfamiliar, know it’s exactly what you need right now.

Key Tip: This change may be bringing up fear, worry, and self-doubt but rest assured, it’s taking you in the direction of where you’re meant to be. It may feel uncertain and even scary at times but keep trusting, surrendering, and allowing the process to be what it is. You are transitioning and transforming into your greatest self and learning important and valuable lessons along the way. Enjoy the journey and embrace this change.

Affirmation: I am open to new opportunities and experiences that help move me in the direction of where I desire to go.


Meaning: The number 7 is a very spiritual and mystical number. It symbolizes Universal consciousness and soul evolution. It’s a divine message from your Angels that you may be experiencing a spiritual awakening and profound inner growth. Often times if you are seeing the repeating numbers 777, you are in touch with your intuition and going through a powerful shift that is “forcing” you to re-evaluate many areas of your life.

Key Tip: This may be a time for deep connection with self through Meditation and inner healing work. Journalling your emotions, releasing what doesn’t serve you, and self-care practices that keep your vibration high will be important right now. You are awakening to your beautiful gifts and unique abilities. Please know that you are fully guided and supported by the Universe and your Angels at all times. You are never alone.

Affirmation: As I awaken to my truth, I give myself permission to let go of anything that no longer serves my soul purpose.


Meaning: Seeing the repeating numbers 888 may be an indication that your mindset and perspective has been rapidly changing and shifting. Your thoughts, energy, and emotions have become more positive as your vibration has elevated to another level of consciousness. You are seeing the rich beauty of the world and focusing on the abundance that is all around you. With this new mindset, you are effortlessly attracting opportunities and experiences that enhance your state of being. You are in the flow and feeling light and free.

Key Tip: You have the power to create your own reality and this truth has now been shown to you. Keep in mind that as you rise up, you might find that you no longer resonate or align with certain people, habits, or behaviours. Your Angels are saying to you that it’s important you keep trusting yourself in knowing what feels right and good for you, and following that inner knowing. Your limitless mindset will open doors for you that you may have previously viewed as closed. Abundance, prosperity, health, and wealth is yours for the taking.

Affirmation: My mind is open and free and I now see obstacles as opportunities for me to learn and grow. I am at one with the Universe and attracting to me all things that take me closer to my goals, dreams, and desires.
