I recently posted a thread about the “clock phenomenon” on another website. I then googled it and found this site. I joined, and was unable to find a "post reply button" to the the 11:11 posts. perhaps someone can explain why the post had no reply button or point out where it is. Anyway, on to why I am posting. You may be interested to know that you are not alone in your experiences. I have been involved in a life long pursuit of insight into who, what, where and why are we. Like most of us, it has led me to many answers and even more questions. That being said, I believe the clock phenomenon is one of the biggest mysteries of our times, as well as a strong piece of evidence that consciousness is a prior with the physical aspect being an epiphenomena, instead of the other way around. But I am getting ahead of myself.

For a period of about six years, during the mid to late 90’s I began to wake at 3:33 in the morning staring at my digital clock.

First just a little back story - I was having an incredible amount of synchronistic experiences at the time, any one of were remarkable. For example – one evening I read, for the first time, the Hopi prophecy about the return of White Buffalo Calf Woman. The next morning I woke up, turned on the TV in my hotel room, in “Solon” Ohio, to discover that a white buffalo had been born and the video showed several Hopi Indians hanging dream catchers on the chain link fence around the farmers property!

The first time the clock phenomenon happened I was keeping a dream journal and studying Lebarge’s Lucid dreaming techniques. I had issued a dream suggestion to get a conformation that I was on the right track in my studies and in life. I woke at 3:33 staring at my digital clock. I did not need to go to the bathroom. I made a note of it and went back to sleep. Over the course of the next decade it continued to happen, sometimes with other phenomena occurring but usually I would just wake and look at the clock. I also would wake at other times like 2:22, 4:44 etc. but, I did not make notes because I was focused on 3:33. At a certain point I began to see it during the day. I would just look at the clock for the first time in hours and the numbers would be lined up! Later on I began to experience the numbers in order or reverse order i.e. 4:56 or 3:21 etc. I also began to have strings of numbers like see 3:33 on the clock then on a billboard then on a gas pump. (I know it sounds crazy but, it happened. I even kept records)

This is where it really got interesting. I had become friends with a customer of mine when I worked in telecom. He was a Mufon investigator among other things, and we discovered we were very much the twin sons of different mothers. One day we discovered that we had shared a dream. We decided to get together and compare notes to see if there were more instances of this. Two months later we finally found the time. Imagine our shock when we saw at the top of both lists “wake in the night starring at the clock with the numbers lined up.” Bear in mind, we had never discussed this before. At the time of this discovery neither one of us had read anything about this phenomenon and assumed it was a private affair. As I alluded to above, I was very well read in theology, spirituality, virtually all of the human sciences, physics, psychic phenomena including remote viewing, the paranormal etc. Don was just as well versed. So we were pretty certain that we on to something new or at least not widely studied or publicized. We prepared a web survey that was designed to find out if anyone else was having these experiences with out actually coming right out and asking them if they woke at 3:33. Before we released it, I purchased the just released “the Andresson Legacy” by Raymond Fowler. In it were a chapter and a table of his own experiences titled “clock phenomenon.” He kept records in which he would wake as Don and I had. On occasion poor Ray would wake every hour at 1:11, 2:22…5:55 etc.
As time went on I began to see it alluded to more and more and at some point the Celestine Prophecy was released which also indicated that there was a large community of folks having a surge in synchronistic experiences. Another connection I made early on was in reading the book “the Communion Letters.” There are several references in this collection of abductee’s letters and in Strieber’s other books of the “three knocks” which is a group of three knocks, three times in a row. It appears in several different forms but is in itself an unexplained mystery of a high order. Also, another possible connection is in the observation that the human birth cycle is measured in three trimesters. Which can be expressed as 333? There is much evidence of a hybrid breeding program in the abductee literature.

That brings me (by the short route believe it or not) to my thoughts on the subject and why I think it is so important. First, when you look at the fact that not even my wife and I have our clocks in perfect sync, let alone people in different time zones, there is no possibility that any kind of conventional signaling is occurring. In other words it is not possible to send some kind of broadcast signal to everyone at the same time without transcending the barriers of space/time. So what is going on? Did some of us spontaneously and subconsciously decide to trick ourselves into waking? If this is the case then the implications are that we are all enjoined at some deep and mostly unconscious level and we are perhaps giving our collective self a wake up call. If so then what is the message? Perhaps it is simply to become aware of that reality.

The other alternative is that something operating outside the boundaries of our dimensional capabilities is playing some trick on us or trying to tell us something. . If so for what reason and what is the message? The only clear message that I have been able to discern is in the message contained in the very inexplicable and gentle nature of the experience itself. It is something that you can just shrug off as nothing or you can really explore it, ask the hard questions and realize that the technology needed to accomplish this feat defies any explanation that is limited to our understanding of how the universe works, nothing less.

Either one of these scenarios, is to my thinking, a big deal. Why? Because I think it is extremely important to not take things on faith. Yes, we are infants when it comes to the physical sciences and many things we think we know today will change tomorrow, but, more true understanding of our nature and place has occurred using our intellect and critical thinking in the last 500 years than occurred in the entire previous history of agrarian culture before it. This in spite of the fact, that both science and mystical experience have been shackled into the service of the wealthy elite since the beginning. Something like the clock phenomenon seems to happen under the radar of mainstream society and those in power. It doesn’t proclaim anything specific like “I am the Lord” or “I am Babtar from Alpha Centaury” to get its point across. But, it exists and it is unexplainable and it inspires.

I'm sorry you didnt get a nibble. At exactly 11:11, both day and night, i look at the clock without fail. For some reason this draws my attention unbenounced to me.

I took my mother to a second hand shop here on Cape Cod when she was visiting. She saw this watch, it was beautiful, old and didnt work. The sales lady said it hadnt worked in years, it was part on an Estate sale. I bought it for my mother anyway....Women, we will put on something just because it looks good. An hour after we left the store and my mother was proudly wearing it, it started working.

When my grandfather died, the Grandfather clock at his home stopped as he drew his last breath.

There are a lot of accounts on the internet, these are just some of mine. It is a fascinating subject.

Very adroit query..
As a watchmaker, I have always wondered why IF I set the time when I put the hands back on a watch at 11:11 remarkably in about 24 hours they will line back put perfectly..does not work elsewhere but at 9:00 and 3:00, which lines them up perfectly immediately.
Also cannot find WHY the Kabbalah does not have an 11:11.

Siriuslyone, can you explain that a little more for me?

What do you mean by "line up perfectly"?

Yes, I will try..Horology is full of mystery.
When you are putting the watch back together, you will have to line up the hands at either 9:00 or 3:00 or they will not stop on the correct time, as the hands follow the minute wheel while as they go around.
The reason I tried doing the 1111 is that I 'found' it very mysterious that the GREAT book, the Kabblah had no 1111 in their verbose number meanings, so something? told me to see what it was hiding 'in plain sight', so it does not work with any other the other 4 digit number but for 1111.
As of yet, because I do not know IF anyone knows why that important number was left out of this vebose book, but I will never do the 'arts' of Crowley, so I guess it will remain a secret to me..And I was studying with a Rabbi, and he would not dis-cuss the book?
I hope this explains it, if not ask on..

Robin.....I started a thread regarding my experiences with 3:33 some time ago which got consolidated into the 11:11 thread i believe.

Anyway, this has been an ongoing "thing" with me my whole life. The clock, the cash register, sales receipts, game scores, etc, etc.
I really don't know how to reconcile it. It happens so often that I was actually on the edge of my seat all day of March 3, 2003!!

What's it all about? I don't know and probably never will but my gut feeling tells me to pause and reflect every time I see it.

Perhaps that is the meaning.....a moment of reflection.
