I went to an event last night and was given the option of checking in my coat. I decided to keep it on because I did not want to deal with going back to retrieve it. Of course, I over heated inside, took off my coat and tried to wear it over my shoulders, decided that was annoying and then finally took it to coat check. To my delight, my coat check number was 1 1 1.
I first started seeing synchronized numbers during my initial spiritual awakening. I looked up what each number sequence meant. 1 1 1, 2 2 2, 3 3 3, 4 4 4, etc. There are some interesting theories as to what these numbers symbolize, do a quick search and you will find numerous resources. I am not an expert on numerology but I find it fascinating.
From my personal experience, I believe that these numbers are winks from spirit, or the universe that you are on the right path, that everything you’re experiencing is for your soul evolution, and that spirit is acknowledging and supporting your journey and progress. It’s the feeling of your friends and family cheering you on from the side as you run past the finish line.
When I was moving from San Francisco to New York, with no guarantee that I would find a job, I saw these number sequences multiple times and it helped me feel safe, and it helped me decide that this was the right decision. Then, things fell apart in my career, and I started doing more spiritual work and following my true calling. This time I was much more fearful, because this was so unconventional and crazy at the time, but I also felt cradled and protected by spirit because I continued to see these numbers. They served as gentle messages of encouragement. It felt like spirit was saying “we know this is difficult, and you are scared, but trust in us, and trust in yourself.”
They also usually carry subtle reminders and lessons. Last night, the message I got from 1 1 1 was to allow people to help you. Give people the pleasure of giving, when someone offers you assistance take it. By denying someone’s service, you are denying them that very sacred energetic exchange. I know it was just coat check, but even in that trivial moment it made me realize how often I turn away the good will of others because I don’t want to inconvenience them.
The root of this is not my kindness, it is the feeling that I don’t deserve their help. This is something that most people need to work on. It doesn’t matter how small, or how grand, the task. When people offer you help, and they are coming from a place of sincerity, I challenge you to prove to yourself and spirit that you believe you deserve their help, and ultimately that you deserve to be blessed.
I often wake up at 3:33 or 4:44 as well. It is extremely annoying to wake up in the middle of the night, but when I look at the clock and see these numbers I smile, because I know spirit is guiding me.
If you find yourself in difficult, dark times, or if you are afraid, ask spirit for guidance and I almost guarantee you will start seeing these number sequences. They don’t exactly give you the answers, or magically fix everything. But they do say, “you are loved, you are growing, you will get through this,” and sometimes that is just what we need to nudge us along. You might still feel stuck and confused, but we don’t need to know how everything is going to work out, only that it will, we only need to follow the bread crumbs and get to that next step.
