Seeing the Numbers 111 and 1111

in New Thought

I’ve been seeing 11:11 for a few years now, typically on a digital clock. Lately I’ve been seeing 1:11 as well, so I looked it up on the Internet. I found this quote:

111 – Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don’t want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts (ask your angels to help you with this if you have difficulty controlling or monitoring your thoughts).

I printed that up and taped it to the wall above my desk as a reminder.

The next day at noon I started picking and packing books. I have a lot of negative associations with the book business, so all these negative thoughts kept popping into my head. Each time I noticed them I just released them. But my mind was bugging me!

The sky was dumping a lot of snow on ground already covered with a couple feet, and I kept worrying about being able to drive to the Post Office. Every time I worried I assured myself all would be well. (Oh, it’s 11:11 a.m. right now.)

As I was finishing up packing the books I thought about the number 111. Then my mind said, “Go check the time!” I jiggled the computer mouse to bring my monitor to life and saw 1:11.

I finally got all the books packed and on my way to the PO I looked in the rear view mirror, and this is what I saw!

The number of this truck was 11, and you can see it twice just above and to the right and left of the headlights (intersected by the defroster lines). Bear in mind that I saw this in a small rear view mirror, so I didn’t see 11. I saw 1111 on a big-ass truck filling my rear window. Now that was trippy.

After I dropped the books off I went to Starbucks for a mocha and to chat with a friend. I stayed longer than intended, and when I went out to put a couple more quarters in the meter I looked at the meter next to me. How much time was left? 1:11. I ran back into Starbucks to get my camera and ran back but it had already changed to 1:10. Bummer.

Last night I was on the Internet far longer than I should have been. I got up to go to the bathroom, but headed back to my laptop to see how late it was. It was 1:11 a.m.

The point of this story is…

Think about what you WANT, not what you DON’T WANT, and what you want will come to you.
