Since we don't have a forum called "tin foil hat", I decided to put this here.
Honestly, I'm putting it here because of a few things I read while doing a little research on the prevalence of this "phenomena". Since I was
definitely ignorant of it until this year.
Just after the first of the year, I began noticing some coincidences. Occasionally I would look at the clock, and it would be 11 minutes after the
hour. The first several times this happened, I didn't give it much thought, and truly passed it off as coincidence.
After I noticed it continued. And that 11:11 also began popping up, I reasoned that since I look at the clock frequently because my business requires
me to keep track of time for appointments, that is why I was noticing it more often. I also suspected there was probably an expectation subconsciously
that was at least partially responsible for what I was experiencing. Again. I passed it all off and put it out of my mind.
Reasoning it all out seemed to cure me. Or so I thought. After some days of no more 11's, it came back full force. I noticed it on clocks, street
addresses occasionally, and other places. I found this highly unusual, but still maintained that it was all a subconscious thing rather than a
conspiracy by TPTB to drive me insane with 11's.
After doing a little research, it seems this is not so uncommon. And other people have, and are experiencing this 11 phenomenon. Some seem to think
this is tied to an awakening of "the third eye". Some seem to believe this is your subconscious trying to get your attention. But for what? I do
meditate. I also utilize self-hypnosis.
This month, things have peaked. Not only do I seem to be able to look at the clock at 11 minutes after the hour, and see it other places. I was in
line at a convenience store recently, and just as I was leaving, the cashier told the guy behind me his total was $11.11. I actually laughed out loud
at that one as I left.
Truthfully, I don't see this as a problem per se. I see it more as an intense curiousity at this point. But I'd be very interested to entertain the
thoughts of others on this no matter how far-out or skeptical.
