If you notice the angel number 808 appearing everywhere, it might mean that the universe is guiding you to your true self.

The angel number 808 is among the most spiritual angel numbers.

We take a deeper look below.

What does the 808 angel number mean spiritually? Infinity and beyond

If you notice the 808 angel number appearing everywhere, it might mean that the universe is guiding you to your true self.

After all, when turned on its side, 8 becomes the symbol of infinity. This number carries all the weight of the higher reality.

The spiritual meaning of 8 symbolizes an infinite flow of everything that is good in the universe.

That this number appears twice in 808 tells us that the blessings the universe intends to give you are in balance or in the context of relationships.

You don’t have to over-extend yourself to get these things. They will come naturally as you walk along in your life. It will seem as if you possess full rights to these blessings.

What does 808 mean in numerology? A reminder of good things

In Chinese numerology, 8 symbolizes abundance and prosperity. It is the luckiest number, and is associated with getting rich quickly.

The zero in the meaning of angel number 808 represents eternity or the eternal circle. It thus further magnifies your connection to that which is above or the higher plane of reality.

The 0 symbolizes nothingness. It points your higher self towards great potential, even though you may seem to have none of those gifts today.

Stride out into the world with self-confidence, and you will surely realize your full potential for happiness and wealth even as you do that which seems natural to you.

This is what the balance and forwardness of 808 hold for those who find this angel number: see it as a beginning point to reach your higher purpose.

Again, 0 denotes freedom from the limitations imposed by the natural world. When you hold yourself in nothingness, the world almost cannot grasp you.

That which surrounds you cannot hold you down in its fetters.

If you make this freedom your focus, you will realize your kinship with the eternal and you can allow yourself to be carried in the flow towards the manifestation of the eternal in your future.

This is really a spiritual journey, and you can trust in the abundant help that the universe makes available to those who seek it.

What is the universe telling you if you keep seeing 808?

You are at a point in your life that is no longer serving you any purpose right now.

You need to have the confidence to leave some things behind to be able to manifest what eternity has in store for you.

As mentioned above, this leaving will not seem like over-extending but will come as if it is a natural progression into another sphere of existence.

You are really only going back into alignment with your true self.

What 808 means in relationships: is it a good sign for my love life?

You can’t keep on doing things that other people are telling you to do knowing that these don’t align with your true self, even when those who are closest to you are the ones preventing you.

Family and those with whom you are romantically involved may be well-meaning, but you can’t entrust your future to those who were not given the vision of who you can be in the universe.

808 could be a sign that you are being given the confidence to embark on this journey of finding yourself.

There is something in this world that only you can do. You were placed here to do this thing, and it will bring you great happiness to find out what this thing is.

This will also be the means by which you can make your greatest contribution to others and to the world.   

Whether 808 heralds the arrival of your twin flame union (or indeed your long-lost twin flame reunion) depends on what you choose to do with this guidance: is it a mere coincidence that your old high-school crush suddenly friended you on Facebook? Trust your inner wisdom and intuition, and significant change may be on the way soon…

Don’t forget that many twin flame relationships occur after a long twin flame separation,

What is the Biblical meaning of 808?

808 appears throughout the Bible in various forms.

Revelation 8:08, for example, says “The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea.”

And in Exodus 8:08, we read that “Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron and said, ‘Plead with the Lord that He may take away the frogs from me and my people; and I will let the people go, so that they may sacrifice to the Lord.'”

The numerology of the Bible also uses 8 as a symbol for a new beginning. Males were circumcised on the 8th day after their birth.

Circumcision was a sign of entering into a new life; we lose our old selves so that we may be born again as a new person.
