Q -Could someone please help? I am seeing the numbers 16:16 and would like to know exactly what this means. I have heard it is a warning of some kind
Is this true and what is the warning?
A - I received a direct email question today via the web site and it applies to all synchronicities like this one. Whether it be 1:11, 2:22, 1:23, 4:44 16:16 etc.. I thought I would post the question and my answer below in case it helped anyone else to make sense of this phenomenon. On a side note, re: 16:16, the "warning" reference is because number 16 corresponds to the card called "The Lightning Struck Tower" in Tarot and the Tower card gives a warning about the calamity that can ensue when we are too focussed on material outcome to the point that we forget that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. 16/7 asks us to surrender and trust when it's time to let go of that which no longer serves our higher purpose. But 16 doesn't necessarily manifest in the literal sense of our physical accomplishments being torn down to make space for a new creation. It is often a more subtle shift in your perspective of reality or an unexpected disillusionment. An inner or an outer experience that triggers you to take a reality check about your life and determine a new direction.

Q - Over the last couple of weeks I've had something happen which I've not experienced before. I'll look at a clock and see consecutive numbers, 1:11 2:22 or 3:33. I've had this happen two or maybe three times in a 24hr period. What does this mean? Is it coincidence or is there a meaning? I've asked my friends about it. They say "oh it happens to me once in a while". Well I had this happen three times in a day, acouple of weeks ago. Please let me know what you think.
A - This is something that happens when you are either in alignment with something that your inner-being (Higher Self) wants to point out to you or it is a guidance or message based on the number that is repeated. It does happen to many of us but even so, it is good that you are asking (asking outward is asking inward and you might receive your best answer when you least expect it!). For you, because it seems to happen with different numbers and not just one set of numbers as happens with some people - it is a message about "alignment". The repeated numbers are a jolt to your attention that is used to sifting through so much random each day. If you can remember what happened that day, if anything unusual, ask yourself if anything might have happened differently had your attention not been peaked by noticing these alignments. For example, I once had a day like that - where I was noticing synchronicities everywhere and a little later I just scathed by a near collision in my car! I was not involved in the accident caused by someone up ahead stopping abruptly - because my attention was more fully in the present moment - brought to the present - and out of imagination - by having noticed these "signs" around me.
Repeated numbers don't always mean that something like this is going to happen - sometimes we may not know "why" at the time. In our peaked attention state we might take a better route or say a different thing or think a better thought.. and our path is changed as a result - all seemingly a part of a typical day, but we remember the clock did funny things! :-)
Another thing that seems to be true, is that we are rarely - if ever - in a negative mood when these things happen. We are usually in a calm, relaxed and clear-headed mode. These may be subtle signs that we are in the 'right' state of mind for tuning into higher guidance that day or for really getting clear about what we want, where we're going. Every day the clock hits all of those repeated sequences, but most days our attention is a blur - spread out to every concern we have in life. To be aware at the exact moment of time aligned, says that for that moment, we have captured a moment of "present time". We are "here", "now". I look a these occurrences as reminders that I am tapped in and then I use that attentive state to look around, notice, be grateful or whatever and then see what pops into my head during that time. Often it's something good! Because I am intentionally tapping into inspired thought.
Hope that helps!

"The number 44 follows me and has even greater importance when coupled in some way with 42. Can you tell me possible meanings of these numbers? THANK YOU!
Wow - these are powerful, yet practical numbers that pack a lot of punch! (I couldn't resist all of those Ps). The Master Number 44 vibrates in the word 'PROSPER'. PROSPER in the highest, purest, REALest sense. To 'Be ONE with' all that you have inherited by DIVINE right. All of those even numbers must be giving you a message about PROCESS too. 4 is the number of step by step, process and asks us to focus on the details and do it 'right' the first time. 44 is a number of great reward if the PROCESS is diligently followed. PATIENCE is needed.. to not rush ahead or give up too soon - even though the task may seem to be too much to ask of a mere angel, but it asks us to complete the tasks at hand in small, sequential, gradual bits before moving onto the next. Noone is followed by 44 unless they have what it takes. 44 is large, but you know that saying, 'You are never given a task bigger than you can handle' (or something like that). 44 asks us to soberly, confidently look at what needs to be done - to clean up - to make imPECCIBLE our work, our homes, our relationships, our sense of Self and our comittment to our LifePurpose - without compromising anymore. It's pretty powerful and it PROMISES more than you can imagine right now. 44 will help you imagine MORE and BETTER. Keep the Big Picture in mind as you bring your full attention into each task. This seems like dividing your attention, but it actually calls more of YOU into the present moment.
The feeling of PRODUCTIVITY should be foremost. The number 42 is also a very grounded, practical, patient number. It is about creating harmony, balance and healing in your world by giving attention to your relationships. Healing them, making it 'right' and giving attention to our bodies, doing what we know in our hearts is 'right' for them too. If I had to think of some keywords for you, they would be; integrity, harmony, cooperation, love, joy, equality, honesty, patience, persistence and peaceful process.
Hope that helps!

Do you often notice a certain number or series of numbers in your life? Do they seem to follow you everywhere? Do you wake up at the same time each night or just 'happen' to look at the clock every day at the same time? What are 'your numbers'? 11:11? 111? 333? 444? 23?? What do you think they mean?
Number Sequences From The Angels
by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.
The angels do their best to get our attention and to communicate with us. In this way, they help us heal our own lives. However, we often discount the signs they give us, writing them off as mere coincidences or our imagination. The angels say: 'We can't write our messages to you in the sky. You've got to pay attention and believe when you see any patterns forming in your life especially in response to any questions or prayers you've posed. When you hear the same song repeatedly or see the same number sequence, who do you think is behind this? Your angels, of course!
Your angels often communicate messages to you by showing you sequences of numbers. They do this in two ways. First, they subtly whisper in your ear so you'll look up in time to notice the clock's time or a phone number on a billboard. The angels hope you?ll be aware that you?re seeing this same number sequence repeatedly. For instance, you may frequently see the number sequence 111, and it seems every time you look at a clock the time reads 1:11 or 11:11.
The second way in which angels show you meaningful number sequences is by physically arranging for, say, a car to drive in front of you that has a specific license plate number they want you to see. Those who are aware of this phenomenon become adept at reading the meaning of various license plates. In this way, the angels will actually give you detailed messages. Here are the basic meanings of various number sequences. However, your own angels will tell you if your situation holds a different meaning for you. Ask your angels, 'What are you trying to tell me?' and they'll happily give you additional information to help decode their numeric meanings.
111 - Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don?t want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts (ask your angels to help you with this if you have difficulty controlling or monitoring your thoughts).
222 - Our newly planted ideas are beginning to grow into reality. Keep watering and nurturing them, and soon they will push through the soil so you can see evidence of your manifestation. In other words, don?t quit five minutes before the miracle. Your manifestation is soon going to be evident to you, so keep up the good work! Keep holding positive thoughts, keep affirming, and continue visualizing.
333 - The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love, and companionship. Call upon the Ascended Masters often, especially when you see the number 3 patterns around you. Some of the more famous Ascended Masters include: Jesus, Moses, Mary, Quan Yin, and Yogananda.
444 - The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don?t worry because the angels? help is nearby.
555 - Buckle your seatbelts. A major life change is upon you. This change should not be viewed as being "positive" or "negative," since all change is but a natural part of life?s flow. Perhaps this change is an answer to your prayers, so continue seeing and feeling yourself being at peace.
666 - Your thoughts are out of balance right now, focused too much on the material world. This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between heaven and earth. Like the famous "Sermon on the Mount," the angels ask you to focus on spirit and service, and know your material and emotional needs will automatically be met as a result.
777 - The angels applaud you 'congratulations, you're on a roll! Keep up the good work and know your wish is coming true. This is an extremely positive sign and means you should also expect more miracles to occur.
888 - A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career, or relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. In addition, it means, 'The crops are ripe. Don't wait to pick and enjoy them.' In other words, don?t procrastinate making your move or enjoying fruits of your labor.
999 - Completion. This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life. Also, it is a message to lightworkers involved in Earth healing and means, "Get to work because Mother Earth needs you right now."
000 - A reminder you are one with God, and to feel the presence of your Creator's love within you. Also, it is a sign that a situation has gone full circle
