Angel Numbers: What They Mean + How They Can Help You

Today's post is a little unorthodox. A bit woo-woo if you will. But I am obsessed with numerology, and I decided that if this post will serve someone, I’m going to write it.

Today we are talking about something my friend Kimberley Wenya calls synchronicities. Many people believe that they are divine signs of support and love.  

If you’ve been seeing numbers in sequence lately, or you notice that you keep seeing a certain time or number everywhere, this post is for you! 

So let’s jump right in: 


What are Angel Numbers? 

Synchronicities, also called angel numbers, are repeating numbers that a person keeps seeing over and over in their life. People call them angel numbers because it is believed that these sequences carry a message or a sign that you are being supported and guided by your higher power. You are being supported and guided by angels, and it can be a sign to focus on certain aspects of your life, always for positive self-development. 

If you prayed for something recently and you keep seeing the number 11:11, it could be a sign that it’s on the way or that God has seen your request. If you just keep seeing a sequence over and over again, like 333, it could be a sign that you should focus on a specific area in your life or to keep going in an area where you are struggling. 


How do you know that it is divine guidance? 

Truth be told, you don’t. But although you may not have solid evidence that it’s really a message from the divine, of you look up the meaning of the numbers they always point you in a positive direction. I don’t know about you, but free self-improvement advice is always good for me, even if it comes from a place you may think is woo-woo. You may also notice that this advice often lines up with the struggles or questions you have in life, and that it is often on point.

I happen to believe in the Universe, so I take these numbers as a sign that I am headed in the right direction, and as a way for me to feel supported and guided in all that I do. It’s a little nudge to connect with love in that moment, and it helps me to live a life that makes me happy and proud, because I know that I am connected to the presence of love in my day to day life. 


My Experience

In talking about synchronicities and my own faith, I might as well share my experience with angel numbers and how I’m choosing love in my current life situation.  

I’m prepping for the ACT this week, and last week I asked God to help me have peace during the exam and hopefully get a good score. If you don’t know what the ACT is, it’s a college admissions test that you take to help you prepare for college studies as well as for life in general. I took the pre-ACT and got a good score, but for me I just want to make sure that I’ll do well, so you can imagine I had a bit of anxiety.  

I also didn’t know where I was testing and I was kind of freaking out because I couldn’t get the accommodations I needed for the test. So I prayed and asked the Universe to help me sort this out and have the accommodations I needed for the test, but if not I knew that it would lead me to something better so I also prayed for the highest good, whatever that meant in my life.

A few days later, everything got sorted out. My Homeroom teacher called and everything was lined up perfectly, exactly as I had wanted it to be and I was ecstatic. Now I just had to prep for the test, and it gave me anxiety because I have physical conditions and I wanted to be sure that I would feel okay on the exam. So I prayed again and asked God for help and this week has been amazing in that I’ve been at such a high vibe. I’m doing great on my practice tests, I’m seeing angel numbers everywhere and I feel so much peace about the exam, I know I’ll do great. And it’s all thanks to the Universe and how things worked out, but it was just so cool to see everything work out instantly and so that’s my story with the Universe and angel numbers.


A Few Common Sequences

Of all the angel numbers out there, there are a few numbers that people often see, as they are a simple way to remember that you are in alignement and help you get in alignment with love. Here are a few:

  • 11:11 - This is the most common angel number as far as I’ve known, and it simply means that you are spiritually awakening. You are attune to divine guidance (in whatever form and fashion it comes to you, I might add) and you are in alignment. It’s an invitation for you to deepen your spirituality and see through the perspective of love.
  • 333 - This is a reminder that the divine is within you, your spiritual masters are guiding you, your angels are supporting you. Ask for help when needed and don’t be afraid to co-create with your higher power.
  • 222 - Everything is working for you highest good and God is supporting you, stay focused on the positive and what you want in life rather than what you don’t.
  • 444 - Angels are guiding you and all is working for your highest good. Listen to your intuition, trust your higher power and know that all is well.

    Those are a few common ones, but I recommend going to this website to check your own numbers. Also, I mentioned Kimberley earlier and she created a Pocket Guide to Angel Numbers if you are interested in checking that out more.
