If you see the numbers above often, in various places, theres a message there. Try to decipher the meaning. Google to see what others who see the same have experienced or their thoughts on the meaning.

It doesn't hurt to do some exploring on the subject and many books written as well.
Sorry but I'm still pretty skeptical...the clock doesn't 'speak to me' through numbers, it's just that for instance I'm often glancing at my computer screen and the time is in the bottom right-hand corner. Most of the time I don't notice it but when it's 11:11 it just 'stands out' to me. But it's literally ALWAYS in my view, in the corner of my eye.

Even the clock on your wall, or your digital clock radio, think about just how many times you glance at it every day. It's more than you think. Even if you're not CONSCIOUSLY looking at the time, you can't help but see it. So it's nothing that weird or supernatural.

As to other numbers: do you realise how many numbers we see every day? You'd be surprised. Hundreds.

I'll tell you of a recent coincidence. I'm considering the idea of doing a working holiday in Canada, specifically in the ski resorts like Banff, Jasper.etc. The last trip I took was to Vietnam. Recently, I borrowed a DVD from the library. It so happens that someone elses docket thing that shows the books/videos they borrowed was in one of the cases. On it was a DVD on Vietnam followed by a DVD SPECIFICALLY on Banff, Jasper and Glacier National Park! Perhaps it was a sign? That the next place I was to go was Canada?

This happens to me too!

And there is more than one book about it.

I think that many cases of frequent number sightings are a subconscious draw.
However, when numbers appear randomly and in places that are not clocks, or if it is a clock, the events leading up to the sighting was not some 'feeling' because it's close to that time...what I mean by that is a person looking at the clock at home, it's easy to see that they unconsciously looked at te right time. Now if that person is driving down the freeway and passes a big digital display clock on the side and they pass at 11:11, that's not them and the subconscious.

What is 11:11....I have a whole article I wrote about it. I will have to dig it up and share it when I find it. (three computers later, not sure where it could be).

I have had 11:11 with me since I was in Jr. High, so that is over 30 years now. It did not come to me by way of a clock either, at least not at first. My GS cadette troop # was 1111.
It would be a couple years later when my mom tells me about my step dad and a lunch visit with his brother. One looked at his watch and said 'oh, 11:11!' the other said 'I've been seeing that a lot' to which the reply was, 'so have I! That's why I said something, mostly to myself, but funny that you are seeing it too'

As the years progressed I would encounter many people and the same kind or scenario would unfold.
"you see it too!?"....
Most people say 'make a wish' but I think there is something much more to the number.
What exactly I don't know. But there some neat things that others have to say about it, and there are some really off the wall for even me to say 'maybe that's it'.

For right now, I just see the number as a reassurance that I am going the direction I am supposed to be going.

I went shopping a while back. When I got home I noticed that the pack of ground beef I got cost 11.11, the jelly I got is best used by 11/11/11, and there was one other thing, I can't recall, that had 11:11.
A few years ago, I suddenly became aware of 11:11. I had no clue as to what it meant at the time, all I knew is suddenly 11:11 was everywhere. I'd be driving & the car in front of me would have it on their plates. I'd go shopping & my change from the purchase would be 11:11. I'd get a text from someone who I really wanted to hear from, but lost touch with- at 11:11. I have countless "coincidental" examples.....I can't dismiss it as something that randomly occurs. It is something out of the ordinary.

I noticed that every 3rd random number I come across, that the last digit is divisible by 3 (or even the last two digits). Not every 3rd *exactly*, but I think that just on average it seems that way. Spooky.

It's so funny to me that you posted on this thread, which is mostly about 11:11, and your post that I quoted was made at 11:11!

Too cool!

Anyway, I either get the 11:11 thing, or the 12:12 thing, or lately, I have been getting quite a bit of 23:23, which is really weird since two of my three girls were both due on the 22nd, but born on the 23rd.

Oh and since I posted this, I have had 11:11, 12:12, 1:11, 1:23, 2:34 come up on the clock just in the past few hours.

To those who say I am subconsciously drawn to look at the clock at 'that time'....
It's not always a clock. I actually see it more elsewhere...I just grabbed a carton of milk and it's batch code is 11:11.

If one believes the hype, isn't 11:11 GMT the time the world is supposed to end on 12/21/12?

Personally, I don't believe 12/21/12 will be different from any other day, but still...11:11 GMT?

Set aside the whole end of the world thing...let's just look at this date and time.
The seasonal end/beginning for many ancient cultures happens on the winter solstice.
Ancient man was very aware of the sun's movement and natural cycles.
Around December 20-21-22, is when the sun 'dies & is resurrected'.
We know now that this is just because of the earths tilt and orbit around the sun.
However, winter solstice for 2012 is very interesting because of the timing.
The start of solstice is designated by the sun entering into the sign of Capricorn.
The moment that sun is at 00capricorn01 is at 11:11am GMT. However, for the Mayans, their geographical location, it's 5:11am.
