It’s 11-11-11: Come Together!
It’s 11-11-11, a date we’ve eagerly awaited ever since we started seeing 1’s and 11’s on clocks, addresses, and all over the place with increasing frequency. This started for us about 10 years ago, actually right before 9/11. At first we thought it was a random coincidence, but since it kept happening to us both, we’d remark on it. Soon, we discovered people all over the world saw 11:11 and that it was a whole worldwide movement.
Here’s some of what we’ve dug up on the 11:11 phenomenon:
Make a Wish at 11:11
Many of our friends had been making a wish every time they saw 11:11 or 1:11 on the clock. No one’s been able to trace the origins of that one. It was just something they learned on the playground, or from a random relative, or through word of mouth.
Lightworkers and Earth Angels: A Call to Action
We uncovered an entire network of people who consider themselves “lightworkers.” Lightworkers have a mission in this lifetime to hold as much light for the planet as possible; in essence, raising the frequency of love and oneness on Earth. Seeing 11:11 on the clock is a wake-up call or a reminder that you are a lightworker. We love this! The Kabbalah is also a 2,000-year-old belief system centered around accessing the Light, and teaches that our job is to become lightworkers.
Other accounts we’ve seen regard this number as a message from angels letting you know that you’re an “angel on earth,” with the same mission as a lightworker. In her book “Angel Numbers,” angel therapist Doreen Virtue writes about 111: “An energetic gateway has opened for you, rapidly manifesting your thoughts into reality. Choose your thoughts wisely at this time, ensuring that they match your desires. Don’t put any energy into thinking about fears at all, lest you manifest them.”
The Mayans and 2012
Our searches kept leading us to info on the Mayan calendar. If you don’t already know, the Mayans were an incredibly advanced, ancient Mexican civilization with extraordinary skills in astronomy and math. Their 26,000-year-old calendar (which is associated with the “turning of the ages”) officially ends on December 21, 2012, at (you guessed it) 11:11. This date marks a rebirth of our world, according to the Mayans.
This new world we are moving toward is all about oneness rather than separation. If you see 11:11, this may be another clue that you are here to advance the concept of “we are all one” across the world. Take it or leave it, it’s a beautiful ideology, and we know the late Bob “One Love” Marley would approve. P.S. The widely read book “The Celestine Prophecy” is loosely connected to the Mayan calendar, as are a number of other New Age and consciousness-raising texts.
As for all the “end of the world” interpretations, um, no. We are seeing the end of the world as we know it, perhaps – which means greed, separateness, lack of social responsibility, and disconnection from our influence on the planet and other living things. As far as we’re concerned, that world can end and we can all rise up to a higher dimension of spiritually transformed existence.
Whatever the case, here’s wishing you a day of transformation and positive new energy. We could all use more of that!
