11:11

Over the last several years I've noticed that I will randomly look at the clock at exactly 11:11. AM/PM doesn't matter, often times I don't even care about the time I just happen to glance over and BAM it's 11:11, over and over, all the time.
Does or has this happened to any of you?
Just curious

Like Jefferson said about his birthday

That is Samantha's birthday, too. 11:11. So that is why it is (conceivably) important to me. So I notice it too. 11:11. But I have a reason. What are other people's?

I am also partial to 5/3, which is my birthday. I am partial at the poker table to those cards, which isn't necessarily smart, but sometimes you get a straight out of it.

I understand bias, and confirmation bias. I also understand why I'm prone to remembering seeing 11:11.

But why others? What does it mean? People don't seem to remember 10:10, or 9:09 (I do, because my baby says she's coming on the one after 909), or 12:12?

I know there is something about the 11:11 phenomenon. Another Ron Paul supporter told me about it. What is it supposed to mean?

He's the man.

It's cause.....

Your doing a groundhog day.

Actually, I was just pointing this same thing out a couple of days ago to a friend of mine. It's been happening to me recently also, really.

What does it mean?

Déjà vu Alarm!

Darn, and now I have a feeling of déjà vu with your comment!

;p

It's been 4:20 for me

I'm certainly not a big smoker but for some reason I've had MANY episodes of seeing 4:20 in the middle of the night. I even have my alarm clock facing sideways whereby I can't see it very easy.

yes..

I get 9:11 a lot. It is kind of freaky.

elevens...go figure...

On Nov. 11, 1918, fighting in World War I came to an end following the signing of an armistice between the Allies and Germany that called for a ceasefire effective at 11 a.m.– it was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Sometimes I look at the time

Sometimes I look at the time and it says 11:11. I immediately think, hey look at that! Don't know why, but it always catches my attention.

YES!!!!

I have the same experience. And I had the experience BEFORE I ever knew that the phenomenon existed. Found out by googleing it and found all kinds of people experiencing the same thing.

I don't know what it is, but if you look at things through history, there is a correlation with the number 11 or multiples of 11, i.e. 22, 33, etc.

Look at 9/11 and JFK's death: 11/22/1963, etc., etc.

Find out and let me know!

Yep

WWI ended at 11:11 on 11/11/18. Lots of examples.

IDK

if it is because my b-day is on this date or what, but I notice it all the time.
We were on 6th street in Austin one night and a street "palm reader" asked if she could give me a reading. I'm not really into that kind of stuff, but agreed to anyway. When I told her my b-day, she freaked out. Apparently the number 11 has some significance to numerologists. The WTC's were supposedly a representation of the # 11. The esoteric is a fascinating subject to me.

Here are some other interpretations:

Cool!

That's awesome! I can identify with many of the things on that list,
Thanks for sharing!

111, 1111

11, 111, 1111. Happens to me all the time. License plates, restaurant receipts, hotel room numbers, addresses, etc. I can not look at the clock for hours but so often when I do look, it is Something:11. Daily thing. This is going to sound really weird, but does anyone with the 11 thing have tinnitus? I read something weird about what tinnitus might be on a paranormal web-site years ago and way in the back of my mind I have wondered if the 11 thing and the tinnitus are related. My tinnitus started about the same time as the 11 thing.

This is just confirmation

This is just confirmation bias. You're brain doesn't remember the thousands of times you've looked at a clock when it wasn't 11:11. It only recognizes the pattern and it seems to you that it happens more often than not, but in reality you only remember the times it happens and not the times it doesn't.

This seems very plausible. I

This seems very plausible. I have wondered for years why I see this, your pattern recognition rationale makes sense, but does not answer as to why so many see the 11:11 pattern over other patterns, do you have an explanation for this?

Thanks!

2:22 here...

also comes up coincidentally in other forms, addresses, shoe size, IQ and average comma usage per sentence :)

Same here

before the 11:11 thing, I saw triple numbers all the time. One of the strangest things ever to have happen to me: On 2/22/11 I jolted awake in a cold sweat - looked at the clock and it was 2:22a.

I used to say a quick prayer

I used to say a quick prayer whenever the time lined up like that (2:22, 11:11, 3:33, etc.)

Back in the day of pagers, 1023 was LOVE,

according to a friend of mine... I see 10:23 lots and it still makes me smile.

More about LOVE ... aka "1023" :

More about LOVE ... aka "1023" :

1023 = 3 * 11 * 31 (prime factors decomposition)

As it turns out:

3 ranks as the 2nd prime, 11 is the 5th, and 31 is the 11th.

2, 5, and 11, themselves, are all primes.

If we try to display an interleaving of the three prime factors with their three resp. ranks below them, in increasing order from left to right, we find out that it works, also :

...... 3 ... 11 .... 31

... 2 ... 5 .... 11

Hmm... Two "V"s meeting ... of two "loVers"?

Wow

Thanks Cyril

Just to be honest...

The interleaving is only a triviality, btw.

But the presence of 11 both as a factor and as a rank, is the sweet coincidence, I think! ;-)

I just made it up, as I couldn't help checking on it. I love primes. :)

Sorry, I mean... I "1023" them! ;)

For me it is 11:11 and 11:44

It goes in phases. Last time for me was about 2 or 3 years ago, and it just started happening again recently. But when its going on, it is all the time, like 3-5 times a day in different forms. I've noticed the phases occur at times of major transition in my life, and, based on my experience, I think it is a sign that everything that is happening is meant to be, I'm following the right path, and all will be ok.

lol

totally didn't mean to post at that time (for me in EST it is actually 12:11 and I was not even thinking about it)...

11:11

I just saw it a minute ago...

There are many of us who experience this.

For the last 5 or 6 years I have seen 11:11 and 1111 and 111, almost on a daily basis. And it's not just clocks, but that is where I first noticed it. There was even a global meditation group that gathered to pray on 11/11/11. Enjoy your research on this as there are various interpretations for this phenomena.

Yes!!!

I see 1111 everywhere, on clocks, license plates, addresses, receipts, once on a walk I looked down and there were two dimes and two pennies - it just got to be so freaky that one day out of frustration/desperation, I typed 11:11 into Google and was SHOCKED.

There are hundreds of websites devoted to this phenomenon, books, movies, youtubes - and even Ellen Degeneres named her new record label eleveneleven because she sees it all the time too.

I wish I knew what it meant, because for me it's not a nice feeling. It feels ominous.

Could it be found in our search for order in the chaos of life?

Numerology, itself, is not a unified theory, as there are differences and similarities in each system of numeric interpretation. We can catch those patterns visually, occasionally, and subconsciously tune into their re-occurrence. Is it a sign to point us toward a deeper meaning, or an indication that we've taken the red pill and now can see the subtleties of things happening around us in real time?

I work with numbers all day

I work with numbers all day everyday and use to think that i would see all sorts of numbers relevant to me birthdays etc. But after doing this job long enough you realize that you only remember the interesting ones so it feels like you only see numbers relevant to you but you are forgetting the 10 other times you looked at your watch that day and saw an insignificant number to you.
