Seeing Symbolic Elevens
Perhaps you’ve heard of others describing their bizarre experiences with the number 11, or you’ve seemingly found yourself finding the number eleven turning up at the oddest of times. The frequency in which you encounter this number leaves you baffled as to what it is supposed to mean to you.
In my case, the number 11 makes it’s appearance usually at the oddest times. I’ll ask what time it is from someone near by, and I’ll hear something:11 O’clock. If I happen to glance at the time and it’s eleven after the hour, I have noticed that it seems to be the longest minute ever; until it changes to 12 minutes after the hour, but I can’t look away until it does.
Reading the newspaper, the number 11 seems to pop right off the page as if begging me to see it. What does it mean? It seems to come to me more so in times of high stress, anxiety, or turmoil. Am I to assume as some would have me believe that it is my guardian angel communicating with me? Or, perhaps it’s something sinister? Or, is it that 1, 11, 11:11 or any series of 1 is the most recognizable to the human mind?
Many people have developed their own theories regarding this phenomena/coincidence, I however, have begun to document what is going on in my life at the time of the elevens. I would like to find out if there is any correlation whatsoever between periods of angst, and the seeming common 11’s seen within that time.
If I’ve done the math correctly there is a one out of sixty chance of the clock in particular, arriving at any certain minute. If I look at the clock three to four times an hour, it shouldn’t be possible to see 11 minutes after the hour that many times in a day.
On 11/11/10 of this year I without looking at the clock got ready for bed, when I laid down and looked at the clock it was 11:11 on 11/11 I was floored! I did not do it intentionally.
So what is this? Phenomenon or coincidence? Thousands of people are experiencing this same 11 question. Is the number 11 a call to our psyche to wake up? Wake up to what? A higher calling? A greater purpose? Is this notification of the end of times? Bible prophecies? Could it be in relation to the Mayan calendar?
Is it just our innate ability for pattern recognition? Or billions of Celestial beings here to guide us?
Personally I feel slightly comforted by seeing them, it is almost as if someone is trying to tell you something. What that something is I have yet to figure out, but will be keeping my sightings documented, and hopefully that will guide me to a better understanding of when they occur the most.
