Are You Seeing 1111 Everywhere? What Does It Mean?

Are You Seeing 1111 Everywhere? What Does It Mean?

Do you find yourself seeing the numbers 1111 regularly, and in different places? The time on a clock, the amount on a till receipt, or perhaps the numbers on a car registration plate! If you look at a clock at a random moment, and it happens to be showing 11:11, this could be just a coincidence, or it could mean something much more important.

You see it is not about the time itself, but more importantly the numbers representing that time. These numbers could hold more meaning for your life than you may first realize, and it is important to understand their significance.

Synchronicity

Think about the chances of seeing 1111 regularly, even on clocks that are synced to different times. Seeing 11:11 happens to many people, and while it may seem strange at first, it is an incredible feeling once you know the powerful reasons behind it.

But again, what are the odds that almost every time you look at a clock, these are the numbers that you see? There comes a point when chance and coincidence simply don’t make sense anymore, and synchronicity does.

What does synchronicity mean? In the case of seeing these particular numbers over and over again, it can mean that there is a powerful meaningful flow and connection going through you. It can make you feel connected to other people, places, or things, or simply have a sense that something powerful is happening in your life.

Synchronicity is the ability to feel that connection and understand it – and of course, embrace it.

Be In The Moment

There are so many theories about 11:11, and not just the time itself, but that particular series of numbers popping up all over people’s lives. One such theory is that when you catch a glimpse of those numbers, no matter where you are, or what you are doing, it is a sign to take a moment, and be there. Be in that particular moment, because it is a sign that everything is aligning for you, and you are exactly where you need to be.

People ask for ‘signs’ all of the time, no matter what their beliefs. We all want to believe in some kind of higher power, and many people view 11:11 showing up as the sign they have been looking for, to assure themselves they are synced with the flow of life.

Recognizing The Law Of Attraction

Another important factor in this 11:11 phenomenon is the Law of Attraction. These numbers are incredibly important to this law, as they are considered ‘angel numbers.’ What does this mean, exactly? Well, again, many people see it as a sign from the angels that everything in your life is aligning the way it is supposed to, while others see it as an opportunity.

This opportunistic belief states that when you keep seeing 11:11, it is actually your angels, spirits, etc. trying to communicate with you – not only to tell you that everything in your life is lining up the way it should be, but also give you an opportunity to look for guidance, and to ask questions.

Be Aware, Be Spiritual, Be One

11:11 is often considered as a sign of ‘oneness.’ As if to say that you are one with everything at that moment, these numbers are a sign to stop and appreciate that moment. Additionally, it can also be an open invitation to see more, and to feel more. Oftentimes, people view 11:11 as a sort of invitation to look at the bigger picture of life.

Think about it this way, if you keep seeing a particular pattern of numbers in different places, at what point does it stop becoming coincidence, and start to become a clear sign? It is an invitation to start your spiritual journey, and it is important to be aware of what these numbers are trying to tell you.

The Importance Of 1111

These angel numbers can mean different things for different people, but most everyone can agree, if you keep seeing them regularly, try to be aware of that moment, and also of yourself in that particular moment. You may start realizing more about yourself than you expect, and it could lead to a whole new path in your life.

Understand that while 11:11 on a digital clock is often the most common way to see these numbers again and again, it is also important to pay attention to the these numbers elsewhere in your life, including car license plates, restaurant receipts, etc. 11:11 is out there in more places than you may first think.

The next time that you see 1111, it is probably not by chance. It could be that your angels, spirits or even the universe is trying to send you a message, or get you to open up your eyes.

Do you see the numbers 1111 regularly?

6 Things To Remember When You Think That You’re Not Good Enough

6 Things To Remember When You Think That You’re Not Good Enough

Have you ever had moments where you feel completely inadequate? Maybe a specific situation comes up and you think there is no way that you would ever be good enough to do what is needed. Or, maybe you feel that way all the time and you can’t seem to get past it.

Thinking that you are not good enough and having low self-esteem tend to go hand-in-hand, but they are slightly different.

Thankfully, you can work on both of them by changing your thinking habits and banishing some of that negative self-talk from your mindset. Whether you think you are not good enough in certain situations or you have a hard time believing that you are good enough for almost anything, it doesn’t have to be that way forever.

Let’s look at a few things you should always keep in mind when those thoughts come in, and how you can start to convince yourself of your true worth.

1. You Are Not Alone

Thinking that you are not good enough can cause a lonely existence. You might not want to put your burdens on others, so you don’t talk about it. You might also think that everyone else is perfectly happy with who they are, and are confident in everything that they do.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The reality is, you never know what other people are fully thinking/feeling. What you can count on, though, is that there are so many others who feel just like you, and are constantly wondering if they are “enough”. Knowing that you are not alone can help you to work through your feelings without feeling so isolated.

2. You Have Your Own Skills

A common reason why people tend to think they are not good enough is because they don’t have a specific talent or skill that someone else has. But you probably have something that person doesn’t, too.

Everyone has their own abilities and things that make them unique. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, keep your mind on your talents and what makes you special.

“If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you!” – T. Harv Eker

3. You Can’t Be Perfect

Perfection is a fruitless thing to chase. Many people who question their self-worth do so because they are perfectionists.

But, if you set such a high standard for yourself, you will always be disappointed. Perfection doesn’t exist, and while you can strive to be your best, it is important to understand human error and limits. That doesn’t mean the things you do are some how “less” than great. But, striving for perfection is something that can make you feel inadequate.

4. You Are Worthy of Loving Yourself

Love tends to be the answer for so many things, including any pain or turmoil that you might be going through. Thinking that you are not good enough is an easy way to cause yourself sadness and pain. Those thoughts can quickly snowball and you might start to think about more negative things about yourself.

Instead of fueling those negative thoughts, choose love. Love is like a permanent band-aid for the pain that you are going through. It is a great way to comfort yourself, provide reassurance, and get a clearer picture of who you really are and all of the wonderful things that you can offer the world. By choosing self-love, you can start to see yourself in a more positive light, and push those negative thoughts away.

“We must fall in love with ourselves. I don’t like myself. I’m crazy about myself.” – Mae West

5. Mistakes Can Be a Good Thing

Do you ever find yourself feeling especially inadequate when you “fail”? While that is not uncommon, that word should really be removed from your vocabulary.

Everyone “fails” at times, because again, perfection is not attainable. When you start to consider anything less than perfection to be a failure, it is easy to beat yourself up and think that you will never amount to the things that you truly want.

But, when you start to view your failures and mistakes as good things and stepping stones, you can completely shift your perspective and realize that not only are you good enough, but you are also resilient and strong. Some of the biggest “failures” in history went on to be the most successful people because they learned from their mistakes. They looked at the things that went wrong and considered how they could change them.

It is important to use your mistakes as a way to learn and grow. When you are able to do that, you will find a greater sense of fulfillment when things finally come together and you get it “right”.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordon

6. Gratitude Goes a Long Way

It might not always feel easy to accept and be grateful for who you are. But, it is incredibly important. Instead of thinking about the things you don’t have or areas where you are not “good enough”, choose to actively think about and pursue the positive. Focus on what you are grateful for. The more that you do that, the easier it will be to banish those thoughts of doubt and insecurity. I like to start every day by using my journal and begin by writing down three things that I am grateful for.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” — Melody Beattie

Once you really start to think about it, you will find that you have more to be grateful for than you may have initially realized, and that way of thinking can help you to establish healthier, more positive thoughts about yourself that will last a lifetime.

What are existential questions?

Existential questions are usually deep, philosophical questions that question just that — our very existence.

They can be great conversation starters and they can also sometimes make for a passionate discussion. The following existential questions can be a great way to get to know someone better and perhaps even learn new things about yourself.
