111 angel number - light in the dark

The 111 Angel Number: Why You Keep Seeing It, And What To Do About It Now (updated June 2022)

Our numerology experts reveal the relevance of the popular 111 angel number. Is it a call to action? A positive sign? Read all the key meanings here.

We all know that the 111 angel number is a very significant one in various cultures and religions. 

But what does it actually mean

Let’s take a deeper look below. 

The number 111 and your own life journey

Your guardian angels and the ascended masters want you to have a life full of abundance and happiness.

When they see you heading in a direction that could jeopardize that, they want to reach out and tell you to stop.

They also want to keep you confident that you are on the correct path, especially if you are unsure.

It would be great if they could simply reach out and tell you in person, but let’s face it, if you look up to see an angel standing in front of you in all its glory, you would probably be so mesmerized that you wouldn’t hear a word anyway.

That is why the angels try to find other ways to get the message across.

For example, many people report seeing 111 on their clocks when they wake up in the morning. 

Sometimes they see it when they’re watching TV, or looking out the window on their sofa at night. 

Often before this happens, they often find themselves thinking about someone for one reason or another – often someone close to them in life, such as an ancestor or family member.

Numbers are easily recognized, so the angels often use this method.

And the angel number 111 is considered to be one of the most frequently sent messages.

Let’s take a deeper look below.

Don’t Miss Out On This Unique Astrological Opportunity

Are you clear about your purpose? Are you tired of spinning your wheels and getting nowhere?

Sometimes – despite your best efforts – it can feel like the Universe has other plans. And that can be frustrating, to say at least.

Well, there’s a reason you can’t get to where you want to go.

Simply put, you’re out of sync: you’re out of alignment with your astral configuration. And until you find that alignment, you’ll continue to experience this feeling of resistance.

But — and here’s the more optimistic side of that coin: there’s a kind of map that can help you reclaim your alignment.

A map that will not only help you define your purpose and potential, but also reveal key talents and strengths you didn’t even know you had.

Think of it as your own personal blueprint to success and happiness: a blueprint that will help you live your most amazing life. Find out more here.

As mentioned, the meaning of angel number 111 is often associated with luck, love, and spirituality

But this number is also a sign of a fresh start or new beginnings

When you see the angel number 111, you should recognize this as an invitation to pay attention to all the positive signs in your life, and to everything that has been working out in your favor. 

So whatever happens with your life this year or next, do not forget that it may be all happening for a reason! 111 is often a sign that the angels are trying to tell you this. 

It’s a spiritual awakening, and it’s an indication from “the other side” that something special or important is going to happen. 

The first time 111 appears, it usually means that a change in life has been coming for some time, and now things are starting to shift into high gear

There are many different interpretations for this number, but the most common one is the 111 angel number represents divine guidance, support, or intervention

It’s also used to help people who are struggling with decisions in life. 

It is often seen as a sign of protection, guidance, abundance, fulfillment, and good fortune

So if you’ve been seeing this particular angel number, that’s probably a good sign

Seeing the angel number 111? Then pay attention!

In this sense, seeing 111 is a kind of warning to pay attention, because something important will happen soon, or perhaps has already begun. 

In other words, seeing the angel number 111 is a message from the angels that you are loved and watched over

And that’s why it is so frequently seen as the number of hope and healing. The angel number 111 means that you are not locked into one way of thinking or doing things. 

You are free to explore new ideas and concepts without judgment or fear of failure. It’s time to find out what inspires you and make it your passion in life!

It’s also a message to let you know that you can take comfort in your life journey.

Were you given your angel numbers at birth?

Are we really born with a “code” that tells us what we should do in life?

We’re just finding out now how people are “coded” at birth to do certain things, due to the angel numbers that have been assigned to them.

We are all coded by life to have a certain destiny, and what we do in this lifetime will ultimately affect how we live the rest of our lives.

It seems hard to believe, but pretty much everyone in our society is in the dark about this. So you’re not alone if you haven’t heard about it.

This is a topic that has been discussed for centuries and while there is no definitive answer to the question, it has spurred heated debate on the subject.

what does the angel number 111 mean spiritually

What does 111 mean spiritually?

111 is a spiritual number that has been shown to be significant in psychic readings, tarot cards, and even in the Bible. 

It is thought to symbolize new beginnings or a new cycle. The angel number 111 is also a sign of “angelic guidance” and the need for healing

This number is also thought to indicate that you are “in tune” with your spiritual nature. 

As we know, angel numbers are messages from the angels. The angels want to tell us there is a direction we need to take in order to heal or grow spiritually. 

So the more you acknowledge these messages, the more you will receive them.

A helpful tip is to practice gratitude when it comes to accepting the wisdom of these numbers: not everyone is able to see them when they need to, so you should feel blessed that you can see them.

As mentioned, this angel number often appears when you are about to make big changes in your life or when something very important is about to happen. 

But it can also show up to remind you that it is time to take responsibility for your actions and the consequences of your decisions. 

As mentioned above, it can also represent change or transformation. 

Spiritualists believe that 111 might be a message from an angel telling you not only that changes are on the way, but more specifically that you should actively start making these changes in your life for the better. 

As the number 111 is a spiritual symbol of awakening, it represents spiritual growth and change, and can thus be seen as a sign from your higher self.

Guess what: the astrological “sign” you’ve been using all these years is probably not the right one

Do you want to find out why it’s wrong, and what your proper sign actually is?

Because whatever you’ve been told your sign is so far, it’s only half the truth.

There should actually be TWO sides to your Birth Sign, and until now, you’ve only been able to see HALF of it.

Which means you’ve been getting incomplete information and readings basically your whole life.

Fortunately, we can correct this right now! Just click on what you think your sign is on this page, and you’ll be able to see what sign you REALLY are.

The meaning of 111 in terms of numerology 

The genesis of 111 in terms of its numerology meaning dates back thousands of years.

But before we can fully understand the meaning of 111, we need to break it down into its components, because triple numbers intensify the individual numbers they are made up of. 

111 is the first three-digit angel number.

And these repeating numbers — like the angel number 111 — need to be examined at the granular level before we can tap into the universal energies that they represent.

In this case, we need to look at the numbers 1, 11, and 3.

The number 1 represents independence and motivation.

It indicates new beginnings, the ability to let go, and the need to move forward.

Three represents creativity and the Holy Trinity, indicating that the angels and ascended masters are on your side.

Eleven is a master number, giving it added power. On its own, 11 indicates you are on the brink of discovering your soul’s purpose.

Putting all this together, we find that when you become independent and look inward, your guardian angels will give you the support you need to move forward to the next stage of your journey: realizing where you are meant to be going with your life.

The number 111 is a powerful number in numerology. It represents a divine intervention and can be interpreted as a sign from angels that they are always looking out for you.

Angel Number 111 and your Twin Flame  

It is believed that angel number 111 also has a meaning related to one’s “twin flame.” 

Your Twin Flame is the other part of your soul — your “soul mate,” as it were — so when you meet your twin flame, it means that you are meeting the other half of yourself. 

The twin flame relationship is one of the most powerful relationships in existence. 

The angel number 111 is seen as a positive sign in this regard, and it often indicates that there are angels present in your life guiding you on your path to what you might call “relationship enlightenment.”

It also tells you not to give up on finding love, a new relationship, or more generally finding out where you truly belong in this lifetime. 

In brief, the angel number 111 can represent the appearance of a twin flame to those who have been waiting for the perfect love. 

It can also signify that you are on the right path, and are doing what you should be doing. 

When 111 appears, your twin flame — and perhaps your new relationship — may already be in your life.

Look around with an open heart, and use your intuition and natural abilities to see whether you may have overlooked your twin flame.

Keep in mind that a twin flame relationship isn’t always perfect: this relationship is meant to help you grow, and at times may seem very difficult.

If you are currently in a relationship with your twin flame, it is very important to monitor your thoughts because negative ones could cause arguments or a difficult stretch.

Whatever your situation, you are about to enter a new stage of the twin flame relationship, either starting or deepening it.

If a new beginning is what you want in order to fulfill your true desires, then hang on for the ride! The angel number 111 is guiding you towards love, spiritual awakening, and inner wisdom in all its forms. 

111 and your twin flame

What does the angel number 111 mean in terms of love?

Since the angel number 111 is all about being independent and preparing to embark on a new path, it could mean various things in regards to love.

If you are not currently in a relationship, be prepared for a new love interest to appear shortly.

And if you are what you sometimes feel is a “bad relationship,” this angel number might be preparing you for a new phase: a soul mission to get your true self on the right track to happiness.

You will need to be the one who initiates contact; angel numbers and angel guardians can only point you towards the path of positive changes and attracting abundance. They can’t do the actual work for you.

The other person may be shy or unsure, but your initial reaching out could start you down a long path together.

For those who are already involved, your angels may be urging you to make a change.

Ask yourself if your current relationship is in alignment with what you want in life.

If not, it may be time to let go, so that someone who is more in tune with your goals can come into your life.

In either case, take time to go inside and fully examine your thoughts on what you want in a relationship.

Above all, stay positive. Keeping an optimistic attitude towards your love life and your true desires is part of being a human being. 

That optimistic outlook referred to above will help you remain calm and use your natural gifts to enter the “energetic gateway” that will keep you moving forward in the right direction.  

111 and the law of attraction

A key insight from the law of attraction is that jealousy is the flip side of harmony.

Regardless of whether you’re talking about an ongoing romantic relationship or a new love, maintaining enthusiasm and positive vibes are crucial aspects of using the divine message you have received; that is, using the natural energy of the number 111 to answer your prayers and aspirations when it comes to love. 

Keep those positive affirmations coming, and your blessings and prosperity will only multiply as you move closer to your karmic comfort zone. 

And giving yourself frequent reminders about your own uniqueness and sensitivity will only help you on your path to becoming the best version of yourself.

What does 111 mean in terms of money?

In regards to finances and money, pay attention to angel numbers in general, and to the angel number 111 in particular.

It is letting you know you are at a place where an opportunity for financial gain is just around the corner.

If you see the angel number 111 while considering a new path in your career, this is an indication to act on that chance, for it is likely being approved by the ascended masters.

If you are currently in a position that leaves you feeling lost or less than fulfilled, now is a great opportunity to start sending out those CVs or resumes.

Keep focused on what you want in your ideal job; it is waiting and within reach.

In that sense, the number brings its own set of new questions: should I look for that new job now? Am I about to enter a new phase of life financially? Positive things await, but you have to be willing to see the signals.

What does 111 mean in astrology?

Angel numbers have a lot to do with astrology, and number sequences like these can help people tap into universal energies that take the optimal advantage of your natural abilities.

In terms of the angel number 111 specifically, those who have 111 as an astrological angel number are inspiring leaders.

They are also creative and independent, and have deep wells of inner wisdom.

Your disposition is sensitive, but you possess a strong inner core that helps you lead others along your chosen path.

With this angel number, you need to be extra careful to practice gratitude when it’s called for, and be strong when that strength is called for.

When your thoughts become (too) negative, you risk attracting toxic people and situations into your life.

So stay focused on where you want to go, because you have the ability to turn your dreams into reality. Your combined attributes are more than enough to get you started. 

What about my spiritual awakening?

As discussed above, the angel number 111 signifies inspiration, creative expression, and spiritual unity. 

Seeing this number speaks to an ongoing spiritual awakening

Nonetheless, there’s still a lot of speculation and uncertainty about the meaning and significance of this number. 

Some say it is the “highest” number in numerology, and as such represents illumination, spirituality, and enlightenment

Some people say 111 can even be a sign from the divine or from your own soul, while others associate it with the number 3 (1+1+1). 

111 is also important numerologically in that the three ones represent the three major stages in life: childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. 

Other everyday meanings of 111

The symbolic meaning of the angel number 111 is everywhere to be seen.  

In the sport of cricket, for example, a score of 111 is referred to “a Nelson.”

This also applies to multiples of 111 (such as 222, 333, 444, etcetera), which are referred to as a double Nelson, a triple Nelson, and so on. 

The number 111 in this case is referring to the British Admiral Nelson, who is erroneously believed to have had one eye, one arm, and one leg (when in fact he never lost a leg.) 

The number 111 is also the emergency telephone number in New Zealand, as well as a medical hotline number in the United Kingdom. 

It is the smallest number that takes seven syllables to pronounce (“one-hun-dred-and-e-lev-en”). 

And in J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring,” the number 111 is occasionally referred to as “eleventy-one.” 

There are also quite a few roads and highways numbered 111. 

angel numbers and karmic spiritual wisdom

The “manifestation” meaning of 111: a source of inner wisdom

Angel numbers are a manifestation of divine intervention or guidance. They are generally seen as indications of the will of the guardian angels. 

The angel number 111 is no exception: the manifestation meaning behind seeing this number is that it is a sign of protection, abundance, spirituality, and faith

And seeing this angel number 111 means that there is a message that needs to be delivered to you. 

For some, this is an indication that the person who has the number 111 has been chosen for greatness; the angels are giving you guidance, or providing you with an important message. 

Once you have heard the message, then you have a clearer sense of your life purpose, and you are one step closer to your spiritual awakening.

Look for the opportunities around you: your spiritual awakening is at hand 

Also important to know is that the angel number 111 tells you to look for – and seize upon — new opportunities

The universe wants you to live fully, without constantly worrying about how every change will impact you in a negative way. 

This is an indication you are ready to face the world. 

This also happens when you accept new opportunities: like attracts like. But how do you know which meaning is accurate for you? 

As we’ve seen, sometimes the angel number has multiple meanings. 

Fortunately, if you don’t initially understand what’s being communicated, then the signs will change so that you will no longer miss the meaning. 

There really is no wrong answer here, so try to study this angel number from many angles in order to interpret the meaning that is specific to you. 

Look as well at the meaning of the 111 when broken down into smaller numbers: 1, 11, 1:11, or even 1111. 

Do not attempt to force a single explanation. Instead, try to think holistically, and attempt to figure out which meaning best applies to you, in your current situation. 

What you can do to make the most of your encounter with the angel number 111

Let’s say, just for the sake of example, that you keep seeing the angel number 111 on license plates or in phone numbers. 

Depending on your thought patterns, that might mean any number of things.

Perhaps it’s a mere coincidence. Perhaps other people see these same numbers all the time,  and think nothing of it.

But at the same time, maybe your thought patterns and your intuition are indeed telling you something else. 

Maybe your “soul mission” or your spiritual awakening is about to enter a new, high energy phase, and angel numbers like 111 are appearing to make sure that you notice.

In that sense, you can see the angel number 111 as an energetic portal, one that’s accessible to the whole human race, as long as people are willing to sit up and take notice.

So maybe it’s a lot more than a mere coincidence: maybe it’s time to take that new job, to start that new soul mission, to make those pivotal changes in your life. Maybe today is the day.   

why do i keep seeing 111

The Biblical Meaning of 111  

The number 111 appears frequently in the Bible.  

Psalm 111, for example, reads “I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the company of the upright and in the assembly.” 

Elsewhere in the Bible, this number conveys other important messages. 

It represents the “eleven disciples” that Jesus sends out on a preaching mission, and it also represents the first eleven followers of Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem. 

The numbers 111, 11, and 3, all hold important places in the Bible.

Along the same lines, the number 111, when the digits are added together, equals three.

This number represents the Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Likewise, the number 1 is indivisible and stands for the belief in one God.

The number 11 appears in many instances, including John having a vision of 11 things, and God talking to John about 11 promises.

The total number of Gospel books added to Revelations also equals 111.

There are 89 chapters in the gospels and 22 in Revelation (89 + 22 = 111).

5 reasons you keep seeing 111 

As discussed above, some people have a strong connection with the spiritual world, and they often receive signs from their guardian angels. 

In other words, these special beings are around you all the time, but sometimes it’s hard to see them because you’re so focused on your daily routine. 

This means that when your mind is free from distractions or worries, you’ll suddenly be able to notice all their guidance and support. 

Below is a list of the five most common five reasons you keep seeing 111

  1. When 111 appears repeatedly in your surroundings, it means that the angels are sending you a message
  2. They are letting you know that they are always watching over you and loving every part of who you are. 
  3. The number 111 is usually considered to be a sign of enlightenment. It can also represent self-love, abundance, and good luck. 
  4. Another reason you keep seeing the number 111 is because it’s your inner voice telling you to focus on your desires and not to give up. 
  5. You are receiving some sort of guidance or message from the angels in order to help you succeed in life.

The number of universal support

No matter which theory you prefer, it’s important to remember that this number supports us in every possible way; therefore, we shouldn’t be afraid of it! 

When you feel stressed out or uncomfortable because you’re seeing 111 all the time, take a deep breath and try to relax for a few minutes. 

Visualize yourself surrounded by white light, and start thinking about what you’d like to accomplish today. 

Then ask your higher power for guidance and support, and you’ll feel better right away. 

The number 111 is a very special one that has a strong impact on the spiritual world. 

If you’re seeing it frequently or in a particular sequence, there’s no need to worry, because these numbers are created for good. 

On the other hand, if they make you feel uncomfortable, try not to fight them, but instead ask your guardian angel why they appear. 

The answer you find can be much more valuable than this question itself.

angel numbers and divine assistance

The 111 angel number and health

Have you been feeling less than your best where your health is concerned? Seeing 111 repeatedly is a message from your angels that you may have fallen into the negativity trap.

It is time to examine your thoughts, and consider a new health program.

Leave behind bad habits, start an exercise program, and get on a regular sleep schedule.

Don’t put off that annual doctor’s visit at this time.

And think of your spiritual health as well — the angel number 111 might be prompting you to exit a bad relationship, or to do more to get rid of negative things in your life. 

Remember, your angels want to see you both happy and healthy and will keep trying to get your attention until you listen.

Staying focused and pay attention

Now is the moment on your life path to remain positive, stay grounded, and get focused.

In conclusion, 111 means you’re surrounded by positive energy and good vibes: you’re on the right path in terms of your spiritual development. 

And the good news is that if you continue in this right direction, then your life purpose — at least at the present moment — will become increasingly clear.

You should remain focused on the light side of life, since it attracts positivity into your environment. 

Your guardian angel and spirit guides are here to help you when you need it the most; it’s time for you to focus on your true potential, and reach it with their guidance. 

When this number sequence appears, stop wondering what it means and let your intuition guide you through each step.

111 takeaway: how you can use its signs to guide you

Your angels want you to be happy and successful, so they will continue trying to get their message across.

Whenever you see 111, stop what you are doing and take notice of your negative thoughts.

Are these negative thoughts holding you back? If so, the angels are warning you that you are at a peak time for manifesting, and you need to choose which thoughts you allow in your mind.

Make an effort to replace those negative thoughts with positive thoughts, and before you know it, those positive thoughts will be the ones that you naturally pay attention to.

It’s not just a coincidence that your guardian angels are helping you in achieving this success.

Past disappointments are just that — in the past — and what you need to do now in order to keep moving forward, and keep moving in the right direction, is more good news, more self-confidence, and more positive thinking.

If you are thinking about a choice you need to make, whether in your career, love, or life in general, consider 111 as a sign that this is a correct move for you.

Apply for that job, make that move, approach that new person.

Stay focused and what you want may be just around the corner.

If the angels are sending you 111, you are on the brink of being able to manifest everything you think about.

Take note of all your thoughts, and strive to keep those thoughts positive, because the universe doesn’t differentiate when it comes to manifesting your thoughts.

Discover your individuality: you are experiencing a new beginning on the journey to discovering your soul’s purpose.
