I've Been Manifesting Something and Now I Keep Seeing 11:11 Everywhere... Does That Mean It's Working?
Well, there’s a romantic and a less romantic answer. Let’s start with the latter. It’s called the “frequency illusion.”
You’ve probably experienced this before; so have most other people. You buy a blue Subaru Outback, and all of a sudden you see blue Subaru Outbacks everywhere. Your neighbor drives one. Your teacher drives one. There are three in the grocery store’s parking lot as you go for your weekend shopping.
So what’s up? Has driving Subarus suddenly become the new trend?
No, it’s the frequency illusion. As soon as you shift your attention to something, you start noticing that very same thing more than usual. Your neighbor and your teacher probably had their Subarus for a while (maybe that fact even prompted you subconsciously to want one too), and there probably hasn’t been a sudden increase in Subaru sales since you bought one.
It could be the same with the numbers, 11:11 and other so-called “angel numbers.” You may have read about them and now you’re seeing them everywhere.
The more romantic version: I do believe that our angels/God are sending us messages on a regular basis, and seeing those numbers can pull you out of your everyday grind for a moment and pay attention. To me, it’s the equivalent of a friendly little wave: “Hi, I’m here for you!”
However, these signs can a) be anything you want them to be, and b) mean anything you want them to mean.
a) I used to decide that a sign from God for me would be to find a penny on the ground and being reminded of “In God We Trust.” Once I made that decision, I kept finding a lot more pennies than usual. Frequency bias or sign from God? You decide.
b) You can also decide that seeing the number 11:11 means to you that your manifestation is working and in the process of materializing. Once you decide that, you’ll probably see that number much more often. Frequency bias or sign from God? You decide.
I know it’s probably not what you wanted to hear, but it’s you who gives your life and many of the events in your life meaning. Decide what they mean and enjoy the ride!
