The 11:11 Phenomena

I was thirteen years old when I began to see the number 11. I thought it was strange.

I would wake up through the night and turn to see the time: 1:11, 2:11, 3:11… It became a game. I would wake and not look at the clock. I’d wait a few minutes then, sure enough, it would be 4.11, 5:11… It always won.

I see 11:11 morning and night. I see 11 on car number plates, receipts, book page numbers and clocks, especially clocks.

Even as a child, I have always been a very analytical person. It took me nearly a year to analyse the situation and know it was more than “just a co-incidence”.

It meant something.

I remember the day I finally said to my mother, “I keep seeing the number 11.”

She kinda sniggered.

I asked friends if they ever see the same number?

They sniggered too.

So, I just kept it to myself, my private secret in my own little world. In those ‘old days’ I didn’t have a computer so I couldn’t talk to anyone about it or research it.

20+ years passed.

Then, one day, I was researching for my novel, 2012 The Final Revelation and I came across a conversation about 2012. Buried in the middle, was one small comment; “Does anyone ever see 11:11? I see it all the time!

I froze.

Someone else sees it! Then I did a google search and was amazed. This experience, which I believed was so unique to me, is shared by thousands of other people all over the world. In the last five years, the subject has grown and, personally, I am seeing 11 more frequently.

It’s getting stronger.


Over the years I’ve heard many weird, wacky and wonderful reasons people believe why we see 11:11. I’ve also had many debates and discussions with skeptics who claim it’s a load of rubbish and only a co-incidence.

It is no co-incidence. As a normal, sane person 😉 I can tell you that this phenomenon is real. I do not ‘actively’ look for the number.

I do not search for 11, it finds me.


Why do only some people see it?

What else might we all have in common?

Do other unusual things happen to us?

Will 11/11/2011 have any significance? What about December, 21st 2012 (1+2+2+1+2+0+1+2 = 11)? At 11:11am on that date, the winter solstice sun hitsStonehenge. Is that significant?

I believe, one day soon, we will finally find out.

What are your thoughts and experiences?

  1. I see 11:11 all the time. Now I see 444, or 555 a lot more, I also see the color purple everywhere, and like you said I don’t seek it out it finds me. It’s always the same shade and tone. To me it’s kind of a wink from the universe saying I’m on the right track. What do you take from it? Is it in your new book?

    Thanks for talking about this,


  2. Hi! Thanks for your comment. There was also a time where I saw double numbers. 22, 33, etc. Denominations of 11. There was a period of about 2 years when I didn’t see it. It was a dull time in my life. Then, when I moved home to New Zealand, I began seeing it everyday again. Then I would smile and think I must be, as you say, back on the track. It might sound strange but I feel I’m protected in some way. I feel bonded to others who see it. Is it in my sequel, yes 😉
