I never came to a conclusion for myself as to what the whole 11:11 phenomena means or if it even means anything at all other than some weird synchronistic coincidence.
I see it but I'm with the post above me and I don't think it is anything special. We see patterns and our bodies have very accurate internal clocks. I don't need an alarm clock to wake up and I usually wake up right on the dot. The only time that changes is if I'm sick or if my sleeping pattern dramatically changes. Even after that is only off by a few minutes. Once you become aware of the 1111 phenom it sinks into the subconscious and we are drawn to look at the clock because it's almost like a timer and then we just see patterns and certain ones will stick out.
Have you noticed that 1111 has a generally positive meaning? Some even think it makes them special like they are some kind special souls being awakened. Now imagine if it had a bad meaning like if you constantly see 1111 you are the evilest of evil and are being warned that you'll suffer. How many people do you think would be on about seeing 1111. Not many I imagine. Even if they did see it most who talk about seeing it now wouldn't admit it.
When I was younger I always happened to look at the clock at 11:34 - on a digital clock it spells hell upside down. Kinda freaked me out.
Chaos, chaos, chaos, ORDER! Chaos, chaos chaos, ORDER!
I looked at the clock then and say 8:27 and I didn't even realise I did it, rill I retrained my thoughts.
had it been 11:11 I'd have gone "Damn it, it got me again!"
but it's just us, I believe. how we seek order out of chaos subconsciously as it is how we navigate live automatically. If you had to make a conscious decision about every single thing you ever had to do right down to breathing, you'd never ever do anything. So our subconscious looks for order as it's passive. It's safe.
Patterns help us do the same thing. If we see the shape of a large animal, instinct tells us to feel fear. And it might be a shadow on the bushes... you still react the same. But when you think about it, there isn't a bear or tiger there. Just the bushes.
A lot of what we think, is not what we actually think, but what we form our thoughts on from the way we instinctively perceive.
not just 11:11 but 2:22, or 3:33, or 4:44 and so on.
I have been getting this a lot the past 6 months.
I have heard a number of explanations including being in sync with the universe, but I sure don't feel sync up.
...my chosen lifestyle is such that I definitely lean toward the unstructured much more than the structured.
