This may be a very odd post, but here goes.

Since about 2003 the number 37 has become very prevalent in my life. It seems to pop up everywhere, extremely frequently.

Now, yes, it may be something that I've simply programmed my mind to see, or perhaps it's subconsciously important to me in some way, but that doesn't explain why several times since '03, when I've mentioned this in passing to people, they often say, "No way, me too." Always that pesky number 37.

I googled it once, and found several websites dedicated to the seemingly random number. I though maybe it could be this way for ANY number...but I couldn't really find any other sites dedicated to any particular two-digit number. There's a site for people who see 11:11 on the clock and all that, which I'm pretty sure I've seen mentioned on here once or twice.

But the number 37 just seems to be a number that people seem drawn to for some reason. Bands, television shows, movies, I've even seen someone with a license plate that read "374ever" several times, in different cities in my county. that one's really odd.

I guess what always grabbed my curiosity was the little things. Paychecks and bills that end in 37 cents, the number being randomly spray-painted on a wall, my order number at a restraunt. Just silly little things that appear to happen almost consistently and not just to me. Bizarre.

So, anyways, I'm not here to ask why, exactly. I'm not looking for an explanation, per se.

I'm just looking to see if anyone else has had the same experience with the number 37.

I'm sure many of you will be able to at least referrence the number in media, but what i'm asking about is any personal experiences with the number 37.

Just curious.

Here's a site that I can remember off the top of my head:

www.thirty-seven.org

Just some fun facts and such.

If anyone knows of any other sites or similar types of occurences, feel free to post them here. I'm curious to see what you guys have to say.

yep. 37 is common for me to see, I note seeing it, but I don't take it for much meaning. I mean, yes, I see it on a daily basis. On the money sheets, in change, on the clock, serial numbers, ect. But it's not a big deal to me.

I see the numbers 6, 9, 11, 13, 22, 33 and other double digits much more often.

In reality, I do believe, since this is only my opinion, that if you consciously (and somehow unconsciously) make it important in some fashion to see a grouping of digits versus another grouping, then that is what you will see.

If you tell yourself that it's a bad sign, and fear it, it will still happen, only the way you look at events and the events themselves will recapitulate your fear of it.

Whereas, if you look forward to it, and think of it as a good sign, it's more for affirmation.

13:37 military, is 1:37 PM. I used to see this alot. I would get home on the weekends, and it would be 1:37. It was fun for a while, but I appreciate double digits more now and so I see them more often.

Most likely you see specific numbers that somehow has left more clear imprint in your memory. It is somewhat comparable to the mind of an architecht that only pays attention to the structures that are on his field of interestest.

Well, it is just my opinion.

v01i0: I really like the way you put that. Good analogy.

You might like to read a book (or perhaps it's a paper) by C.G. Jung, entitled "On Synchronicity". He addresses this issue. I don't remember whether he ever mentions the number 37, but I doubt it.

Well thanks. I see us all as animals - apes, little more civilized than our cousins in woods - and apes pay attention mostly to the things that are foremost in their mind. Hence the analogy.

I don't know if it's a truth tho.

Take care,

Thank you for your replies, but you're all more or less trying to explain why I see it. I've been more curious about why I'm not the only one.

I guess it could all just be coincidence, but I always find it strange that I meet other people who see that same particular number. That's the aspect I can't explain.

Programming myself to see it is something I can grasp, but it feels like too large a coincidence for me to be meeting other people that have the same tendency to see 37.

I guess it shall remain a mystery.


Thanks, everyone, nonetheless.

Hmm, I'll look into it. Sounds interesting. Thanks.

I guess it could be some sort of link to the type of people I'm drawn to, or the people that are drawn to me. But it still baffles me as to what relevance a particular number could have to more than one person so that it would be a prominent presence in their lives, and moreso that they could run into more than one of them.

It's like 3 people with 6 fingers on one hand running into each other at a supermarket in the toilet paper aisle. Just odd.

I know what it means to me, but that doesn't mean it means the same thing to other people who see it.

Thanks for the response, though. Deffinitely something for me to think about.

I hear ya. Never really attached any good or bad relevancy to the number, honestly. It's just a number. But a persistent one. LOL

I'm not so curious as to why I see it a lot, as I am as to why many of the people I've met do, too. They all seem to see it for different reasons, though. I guess it's just one big coincidence that we all happened to meet. Anything is possible. Mass numeric hysteria? LOL

Thanks for the response.

You were expecting that someone would pop up with a fancy explanation of the importance of seeing number 37? Like, look, all whom see number 37 all subconsciously enlightened to understand the truth about coming of the fifthieth anticrisp! No my friend, propably there is no external explanation for these kind of things. Why many people see same numbers, is probably because of same indoctrination, similar brainstructure and way how subconsciousness fuctions.

I think you yourself are the only person capable of explaining why you see this specific number. I can point you out a little, but you have to walk there by yourself. And my pointers may be towards the wall so be careful


Psyche and subconscious has marvellous ways of fooling our consciousness. You - or rather your subconsciousness - may have catched that number from television, book, internet or where-ever.. Even from blackjack table.

About number 37 then: it can be interpret of meaning exactly 37, 10 or 21 or even 7 by little processing. Some of mankind has always been intriqued by numerology since the founding of them; It is regarded somewhat of importance in Kabbalah (numerology), mathemathics (well, sciences in general) and even Pythagoras was said to be fond in them.

I am sure that soon there will be posters claiming that I cannot interpret numbers like this, but instead I have to keep within accepted methodology of numerology, but I say lol, because there is no system.

So, number 37 can be 10 with theosophical add (3+7), and number ten is said to be holy number, as it consist both 1 and 0, origins of binary system and rod (1) and the circle (0), as masculine and femine aspects. If you want mystical interpretation, see Arcanum 10

Also, number 37 can be 21 (3 x 7), BLACKJACK!!
Well, and also the clown in tarot card system. By little processing we can divide 21 with 3 and get back into 7.

I hope you are already confused enough to start pondering what the meaning of the number could be for you. Really, as I said in the beginning, I think the only one being capable of understand it's meaning, is you. Well, I hope you won't take seriously anything said above.

Sincerely,

-v

Perhaps I should have simply asked if anyone else saw it and why they think they do. I think my purpose here has been altogether missed.

I figured I'd throw it out there and see if anyone else had a propensity to see the number. If anyone does, I guess they didn't see this post. LOL

I do appreciate your responses, though. Thank you.

Here's another one for you, I am 37 Years Old. I saw this number a lot when I turned newly 37. I'll be thirty eight in March, then I suppose I will see 38 all the time.

Ha, ok I came to the thread because when I was in high school, my girlfriend used to abbreviate my name as 37, because I have three letters in my first name and seven in my last. I still notice it, but assume it's because I have a connection with the number.

Right after I closed the thread out I went to watch a show on Hulu. I decided to watch an episode of "Community" that I had already seen.

www.hulu.com...-p1-so-i0

At 47 seconds into the show he mentions 37. Ha, just thought I'd add this.

LOL It's entirely possible. You'll have to let us know if you do.

Wow. That's an odd way to abreviate a name, but clever. LOL I can't watch the video from work, but I'll check it out when I get home. Last year, I would catch the Disney channel show "Emperor's New School" now and then and they had a habit of putting the numebr 37 in their show, whether it be spoken or visual. Second season. It's there a lot. Definitely on purpose. I've always wondered why the number was their inside joke.

Anyways, thanks for the post.

Wow, OP. When I read this thread title and your post, my heart jumped to my throat - I've been experiencing this phenomena too, specifically with the number 37, since 2003 as well. I'm shocked and amazed that other people have experienced this too. For the longest time, I thought I was the only person. Most other people see 23 or 11:11, but for me it's always 37. I see it on average 5 times per day, but recently it's been on a sharp decline - 3 times per day at the absolute most.

I see it in everything. Receipts, times on the clock, I even saw it in my serial number on my laptop (TWICE! it has 3737 in it, haha). Occasionally I'll even catch glimpses of it when I do damage in World of Warcraft.
Usually the 37 comes in the form of 137 or 337 if not just on its own. One time I was even explaining this to a friend of mine - I was in his bedroom at the time, sitting in his computer chair while he was on his bed. Behind him on the wall is a collection of pesticide signs he'd taken from lawns (weird collection, I know) and each one has a specific number printed on it. Lo and behold, once I was done telling him about the 37 phenomenon, I looked over his shoulder and there it was on one of his pesticide slips.

I'll admit I haven't read any of the posts in this thread yet (trust me, I will) but I have a theory. I don't think it's anything paranormal, I think it's just psychological magnetism. I believe that people of certain personality types are drawn to certain types of recurring numbers. That is to say, the numbers occur just as frequently as any other number, but due to our psyche, we pick up on the appearance of those certain numbers. For example, I think that "dreamy" or "wishful” thinkers are drawn towards 11:11 because of its "make a wish" connotation. I'm not sure who would be drawn to 23 or 37, but I think everyone who experiences the same number repetitions may be very similar personalitywise.

Please do not multiply Number 37 with 18.

18 = 6 + 6 + 6
