1:11, Light Bulbs, And Feelings About The Future


I don't consider myself "psychic"--but there have been some strange things happening that are hard to ignore. The most recent of which is seeing the numbers 1:11 and 11:11 constantly for the past year.

At first it seemed kind of funny and coincidental, until it started happening multiple times a day; on clocks, the cell phone, the microwave, the dryer...I'll glance down at the dashboard in my car and the CD will have been playing for 1 minute 11 seconds. Or I'll get in my car and start the ignition and it will be 11:11 (and no, I'm not timing it and rushing to my car so I'll turn it on at that exact time). It went from coincidental to slightly creepy.

I went to return something to the store the other day, and when I looked at my receipt to see the date the purchase was made, I saw it had been rung up at 1:11pm. The other night, I woke up all of a sudden, glanced over at the clock and it was 1:11 am. The next day, I realized I had woken up at 1:11 am ON 1/11/11. I kept waiting for something to 'happen' to me that day... But alas, nothing. I have no idea what it means, but I've stopped pointing out every occurrence to my friends bc I think they think I sound nutty.

When I've tried to research it a little on the internet, the explanations range from cool ("your life is coming into alignment") to kooky ("you're a star-child for the planet").

Other strange things that have happened to me on and off since I was a teenager; 1) I always seem to 'kill' the batteries on watches--they last about two months (I now have an eco-drive watch and so far so good) and 2) I go through periods where I know I'm not imagining it: lightbulbs will literally burn out a few times a day--whether I'm turning them on at the lamp or just touching the wall switch. I'm not trying to do it. I can't control it. But I know it happens. Not all the time, but maybe for a week or a few days every year or two.

And the last thing that happens to me is that sometimes I have overwhelming emotions of 'feeling' the future. On one occasion I literally FELT the happiness of my future as if I were living it. It was so strange--it brought me to tears. It's not like I can predict the future... I just occasionally visit places or meet people that provoke an enormous sense of making me feel connected to something bigger and some sense of familiarity. And it's very powerful. But so far I don't know what to do with it when it happens.

I know you posted this awhile ago but I was wondering if you are still popping bulbs? If you are is it when you are having a strong emotion? Does it happen in other places like at friends homes or stores? I'm curious because I pop bulbs when I'm upset/angry. I don't get mad often but when I do no matter where I'm at I pop bulbs. Sometimes they just totally explode. I also go through batterys a lot too.

When I started seeing this number... I realized there was a path I started on it just leads you to many places and adventures. Maybe it means the same for you and its also the time your guardians are assigned to you. If you meditate, the answers should flow to you.

In spiritual numerology the number 1 represents a new beginning, a time of awakening and clarity. This could be the time in your life for new opportunities. That being said, I think that your feelings of your future and feeling connected and pleased with what your feeling makes perfect sense if we consider that this is your "new beginning."

I can relate to you as far as the light bulbs blowing out and flickering near you. Its my belief that empaths can absorb the energy around them. Have you noticed when around your friends or family that are upset about something and after being around you for a while, they seem to have gotten in a better mood? Empaths have the ability to absorb negative energy from people and sometimes can even feel the other persons emotions as a result.

I have had the same thing, only my number is 7 or 17. I'm afraid I don't have any advice though.

Numerology tells us that the numbers 1:11 or 11:11 break down into either 3 or 4 (1+1+1=3 or 1+1+1+1=4)

The number 3 represents: Communication/interaction. Neutrality.

The number 4 represents:. Creation.

But you say you are incountering them 'all the time'...either by lookng at the clock, or on receipts or other places.

May I suguest that the next time this happens write down what you were thinking about just before you saw this particular number set... It may have more to do with your thoughts at the time than the actual numbers you are seeing... After a few times of this happening perhaps a pattern will emerge and then the 'Numerology values' can be applied to what you were thinking about when you see these combinations of numbers.

Keep us updated on that.

As far as lightbulbs are concerned, I have found if it happens to (around) me that my body is either subconsiously building up an energy reserve... Or discharging excess energy from my body and this causes the lights to either flicker and dim or to outright burnout. This happens with batteries as well.

I'm not so sure what you mean when you say "I have overwhelming emotions of 'feeling' the future." Could you maybe expain this further?

As far as the feeling of being part of something bigger, that I can relate to and it's not so much of a 'do something with it' feeling as it's more of a Comfirmation that the World is a Large and Wonderful Place and that we are all connected. That is a feeling that brings me strength when it happens.

Please write down what you were thinking when you see the numbers... Keep us updated and I hope you have found the help you sought here.

Nov. 11, 2011. 11-11-11. Interesting date because 11:11 was a New Age related number. A New Age or New World date? Http://
Guess no editing posts?
Mabey its all hype.

Vanga supposedly said that the Third World War would break out as a result of attempts on the lives of four government heads and after a conflict in Hindustan. Somewhere else it said a believe that 7 officials would die, and this would start world war 3 on November 2011. A public officer renders a loud cry before committing suicide, A hapless world leader will commit suicide, is what Nostradamus said.
Leaders meet November 11

You are not alone my two younger brothers and I started seeing the numbers way back in 1993. The phenomenon goes in spurts very strange I want to say its like you feel compelled to register the number in your mind. My daughter never had the experience but last week this all changed for some reason her and another co-worker started experiencing same number combinations at different intervals, through sales receipts, money, car license plates and clock time. The numbers were > 11:11, 1:11, 77, 7:13, 999, 444 she also mentioned heightened déjà-vu experiences. Light's going out very strong aura reaching out.

what did you see about the future in factual terms - how do people live in the future you see?
In your case the 1.11 phenomenon (1 means Unity and at the same time new beginning and as this phenomenon with the number One seems to be not infrequent at least in USA thus I think it to have some correlation to current reality) and the "ruining electrical things" phenomenon are present together.
Could they also be connected as to their correlate in future daily life?
If yes this connection perhaps consists in the scientific prediction of electrical devices to be ruined in whole regions of the world, or even whole world, by solar electricity flare-ups that are expected for next two years.
This is deemed a horrible outlook but is it really so?
Global electrification always was more of a two-edged sword than we allow ourselves to see, at least if we are not Amish...
And the way we used this modern miracle until now really deserves a cosmic kick-in-the-a$$.
To have to look back to 19th century for bridging a time-gap without electricity and to have to rebuild it all would be real good for global repentance as to use of modern gifts in general.

A lot of the time it's just your mind telling you that they're special because you see numbers everyday all the time. However, I do agree with 1:11, and I even have my own theory on why. But I too see 1:11 all the time, even when I don't look at the clock, or when one clock wasn't even on the right time, and happened to be... You guessed it... 1:11... "/

I have the same thing about the 1:11. I always see either a time like 7:11 which rhymes with my name, or a double number like 10:10, 11:11, 3:33, and so on. It happens randomly, when I'm not expecting it.
