The 11:11 phenomenon and other wacky numbers
Today is 11/11. So? You might say.
Well, if you don't know what 1111 does, don't worry, it might start happening to you too.
For me it all started when my flatmate told me that everytime a friend of hers sent her a message, the time would be either 11:11 or 22:22 or 1:11 and so on. Or she would look at the clock and the time would be 11:11, 2:22 etc.
I said "wow, amazing!" but I thought "ahm, weirdo!"
Until it started happening to me. I have to confess the very first time I planned it. It was 11:10 and waited until the clock changed.
Next thing I know, the number started following me.
It happens quite often, at work especially, when for no reason I will look at the computer's clock, BOOM! there they are, the four pillars... of the apocalypse.
I see it quite often now and everytime I want to scream. I also see 111 in bulding numbers, just on the bus and my eyes will catch it, or in tickets, receipts etc. It's EVERYWHERE.
Because it's a regular thing now I can only remember a few specific instances.
One day one of my colleagues arrived at work and I wanted to check the time, it was 11:11.
It was one of the first times and it gave me a punch in the stomach.
I told my manager. She said "nah, you're making this up!"
A few days later she told me it happened to her. And kept happening. We had a meeting once and she had to check her emails. She started screaming "Oh, my God! Look at the time!"
It was of course 11:11.
She also told me that she told her mother and now she's experiencing too.
And then it started with the 2s and other numbers as well.
One evening I missed my 21:52 train only to catch the 22:22.
At work I always look at the clock when, coincidentally it's 5:15, but then again it's because I love that song so much, lol.
A message from my sister was sent to me on August 22, at eight past ten.
22/08 - 22:08!
I really don't know what all this means. Is it good or bad? My flatmate says these are messages from our angels. Who knows? It might be just pure coincidence and I shouldn't really give any notice, but it is a weird recurring coincidence, it makes me think of a book I read last summer The Celestian Prophecy.
There are millions of people around the planet that experience the same things, hundreds of websites (here's a good one), Uri Geller has written about it, magazine articles have been written and even two movies are being made.
The day: 11/11, the time: 11:11. Can't get more freaky...
Please tell me if and when you had or will have your first 11:11 experience.
I will be coming back to check your comments , so even if you have it in a month or in two years, I will be waiting!
11:11 IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU! DA-DAN!
