Angel Numbers

You have guardian angels with you right now — continuously — guaranteed! Your angels guide you through your thoughts, feelings, words, and visions. They also show you signs—that is, things that you see repeatedly with your physical eyes. One of their favorite signs relates to number sequences. These are numerals that you repeatedly see on license plates, phone numbers, clocks, and so on. 

If you’ve ever wondered about the significance of these number sequences, you’re not alone. Many people have asked us about their meaning during our angel workshops. So, we went to the Source and asked for guidance to interpret the meanings of repetitive number sequences. As a longtime student of Pythagorean sacred numerology (including a past life as his student) and also an angel channeler, I rapidly received information as to what the angels were conveying through these sequences. 

My workshop audiences loved it when I discussed the significance of these groups of numbers, and asked if I would compile a list for them to refer to. So, my book, Healing with the Angels, included a chapter listing the meanings. After Healing with the Angels many people said that they carried the book with them as a reference tool for interpreting the numbers they saw. They asked for an even more comprehensive book that was pocket-size which has just been published under the title, Angel Numbers.

Number-sequence interpretation is an easy way to receive messages from your angels. Numerals are everywhere, from digital clocks to billboards to license plates. Each number has a unique vibrational frequency relating directly to its meaning. 

This ancient wisdom harkens back to great teachers such as Hermes, Plato, and Pythagoras. Pythagoras said that everything in the Universe is mathematically precise, and each number has its own vibration, meaning, and virtue. Plato wrote everything in the Universe is built from basic geometrical shapes derived from numbers, such as triangles (from three) and cubes (from four). The sacred mystical Jewish text of the Zohar (Kabbalah) discusses the power of the vibrations from numbers and letters. 

The angels also say that the placement of the numbers in a sequence holds special meaning. For example, when there are three or more numbers, the center digit is of primary focus. The angels say that this number represents the “heart” of the matter.

Numerology is one of the few sacred sciences that has kept its magic from ancient to modern times. The angels remind us that we’re all alchemists, and that we’re powerful enough to manifest our true desires through Divine magic. Numbers point out the importance of seeing Heavenly messages third-dimensionally in order to show us the lessons, the growth opportunities, and the guidance contained within each of our experiences. 

Below is a sampling of some number sequences your angels may show to you. Ask for clarification if the numbers’ message is unclear by saying to them silently or aloud, “Please clearly explain so I’ll easily understand.” As with any divination tool, defer to your own inner wisdom as the ultimate authority. In other words, if in doubt, then trust your gut.

Three-digit Numbers

111 – Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don’t want. The sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means that 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.

123 — Simplify your life. Get rid of anything that’s pulling at your energy, time, or finances—especially anything that pulls you away from your life purpose. The ascended masters are helping you with this simplification.

222 — Have faith. Everything’s going to be all right. Don’t worry about anything, as this situation is resolving itself beautifully for everyone involved.

333 — The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love and companionship. Call upon the Ascended Masters often, especially when you see the number 3 patterns around you. Some of the more famous Ascended Masters include: Jesus, Moses, Mary, Quan Yin and Yogananda.

444 — Thousands of angels surround you at this moment, loving and supporting you. You have a very strong and clear connection with the angelic realm, and are an Earth angel yourself. You have nothing to fear—all is well.

555 — Buckle your seatbelts. A major life change is upon you. This change should not be viewed as being “positive” or “negative” since all change is but a natural part of life’s flow. Perhaps this change is an answer to your prayers, so continuing seeing and feeling yourself to be at peace.

666 — Your thoughts are out of balance right now, focused too much on the material world. This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between Heaven and Earth. Like the famous, “Sermon on the Mount” the angels ask you to focus on spirit and service, and know your material and emotional needs will be met as a result.

777 — The angels applaud you… “congratulations, you’re on a roll! Keep up the good work and know your wish is coming true.” This is an extremely positive sign and you should also expect more miracles to occur.

888 — A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career or relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. In addition it means, The crops are ripe. Don’t wait to pick and enjoy them. In other words, don’t procrastinate in making your move or enjoying the fruits of your labor.

875 — The changes you’re making have put you on the right path for manifesting abundance in all ways.

999 — Get to work, Lightworker! The world needs your Divine life purpose right now. Fully embark upon your sacred mission without delay or hesitation.

000 — A reminder you are one with God, and to feel the presence of your Creator’s love within you. Also it is a sign that a situation has gone full circle.

Four-digit Numbers

To interpret the meaning of four-digit numbers, break the number sequence into three digits and read that interpretation. Then, add the last digit’s interpretation to know the meaning of the entire sequence. For instance, to interpret 2048, begin with the first three digits: 204, and read its interpretation: 

204 — God and the angels ask for your patience. Stay filled with faith that your prayers have been heard and are answered. 

Then, read interpretation of the last of the four digits in 2048, which is 8:

8 — Know that financial abundance is coming to you now.

Put these two interpretations together and you have the meaning of 2048: God and the angels ask for your patience. Stay filled with faith that your prayers have been heard and are answered. Financial abundance is coming to you now.

Summarizing these combined interpretations, then, 2048 means: “Heaven assures you that your money needs will be supplied. Have patience.”

Five-digit Numbers

You can interpret five-digit numbers in a similar fashion. Just take the first three digits and read its meaning, then read the interpretation of the last two digits in the number sequence. Combine these meanings and then summarize them. 

Here’s an example using the five-digit number sequence, 99900:

999 — Get to work, Lightworker! The world needs your Divine life purpose right now. Fully embark upon your sacred mission without delay or hesitation.

And here is the meaning of the last two numbers:

00 — This means that the Creator is emphasizing a message to you and asks that you pay attention and follow the guidance without delay. 

Next, add the meanings of the two together to find that 99900 means: 

Get to work, Lightworker! The world needs your Divine life purpose right now. Fully embark upon your sacred mission without delay or hesitation. The Creator is emphasizing this message to you and asks that you pay attention and follow the guidance without delay. 

In other words, God wants you to fully commit yourself to your life’s purpose…now!

Six-digit Numbers

To interpret the meaning of a six-digit number such as 225496, you’d break it into two or three-digit components. In this case, we’ll break it into 225 and 496. Then, read the interpretation for the first section, which is:

225 — Trust that this change is for the best. You are in a period of transition—letting go of the past and that which is no longer working. Let go and move forward with confidence and faith. 

Then, you’d look up the meaning of the second three-digit segment:

496 — The angels ask you to make your Divine life mission your top priority right now. Don’t worry about how it will come about, or any other material aspect concerning your purpose. The angels help with everything.

Next, compile the meanings of each segment so that 225496 means:

Trust that this change is for the best. You’re in a period of transition—letting go of the past and that which is no longer working. Let go and move forward with confidence and faith. The angels ask you to make your Divine life mission your top priority right now. Don’t worry about how it will come about, or any other material aspect concerning your purpose. The angels help with everything.

This is a message, in summary, that says, “Have faith in the changes you’re experiencing. The angels ask you to focus on your Divine life mission, and they’ll supply all your material needs.”

You’ll love the continual conversations you’ll engage in with Spirit, with the help of the interpretations you’ll find in this article. Once you begin interpreting the number sequences, you’ll discover spiritual signs and messages everywhere you go. The more you learn about and notice number sequences, the more you’ll realize that Heaven is always with you—speaking with you, guiding you, and loving you. Have fun! 

A Message from Lynette:

When Doreen invited me to work with her on this venture, I accepted gratefully and understood that this was an important assignment. I traveled to a very special place, Hawaii, which is home to my soul, in order to connect with God, the angels, and ascended masters while working on this extensive list. I was guided to do most of the channeling work in some of the sacred spaces of the island—namely, Honaunau (often called the city of refuge); the Paleaku Garden Peace Sanctuary; the Kilauea volcano; and in the beautiful ocean while swimming with the dolphins, whales, and other incredible sea life.

Through prayer, meditation, and studies with God, the angels, and the ascended masters, I learned that these number sequences revealed additional information, which I used in my spiritual counseling practice. I found that the numbers I saw around my clients acted as portals through which I could retrieve specific Divine guidance. This guidance, which sprang from the sacred numbers, has had profound healing effects upon my clients as well as myself. 

Many of them have told me that as they recognize and interpret the numbers around them, they feel more connected to the angels and God. This connection allows them to open the door to an incredible connection which brings them peace, hope, and love. Understanding and using angelic numerology has helped me receive more detailed and in-depth messages for myself and my clients.

been getting quite a lot of code type themes to me dreams lately was about the olde 6inch long celtic type words spelt with the "Y" instead of the "I" like Gwydyon but as I continued to look at the one long word it unwravelled into a sentance made of lots of little words

others include again very long words but similar to an encrypted password, was just told to write it down
is a bridge for a grownding

another dream I was given a "card" with a letter and a double digit number which was a "master card"

all headed somewhere

yet still I get the " in the stillness " speach *G*

interesting times we live in


Sandra 4th July 2008 7:57 am

Perfect timing,

I have been looking for Healing with the angels for some time and have not been able to locate it. For months I have been seeing 5:55, I knew it meant change yet knew there was another part of the message. Yesterday I said to a freind, do you know what 5 means? and today I recieved the answer.

What really made me smile was when I was reading Shaun's comment to this post, I saw the e-mail address contained 555. Got it Angels!!

Thank You for this message. Blessings to you.

Michelle Star 4th July 2008 9:06 am

:smitten: I love working with numerology! I was at the grocery store recently and my food bill came to $33.30. I felt gently surprised, though I don't know why--I see 333 SO often! Sometimes my mental/emotional response itself is a "heads up." I posed a mental "oh, really?" to the Guides/Masters. Then I immediately heard the bill of the young fellow directly behind me: $3.33! So funny they are! Then the woman bagging groceries said to a co-worker, "Go play the lottery on 333!" I told the humorous story about the 3's to a friend and SHE also said I should play the lottery! I told her that's what the lady bagging groceries said!--so I purchased a ticket. I haven't checked winning numbers yet. Om Shanti, Michelle

camelman555 4th July 2008 4:56 pm

funny you mention the lottery ...been getting the hint urge, push to start , but again sometimes it's about timing
no such thing as coincidence , only unrecognised precision


ps ..what if ...there were groups of people that were getting 111,s others getting 222,s 333,s etc.

a sequence ...could it be a count-down ...or a count-UP


camelman555 4th July 2008 5:05 pm

there is also a reference to collecting our divine inheiritance, owning what's already there

becoming in awareness that which you seek


Michelle Star 5th July 2008 10:53 am

:smitten: Well, I didn't win the Pick 3 with my 333's BUT--just this morning my housemate bought me a scratch-off ticket. This is HILARIOUS! The winning number shown is 4. Then there were 4 four's that won me $25.00. That's a total of 5 fours (5 also points to the 5th Dimension that we are adjusting to). But the lower line of numbers is 444!! I love it! And I'm getting whole-body chills from my angels (that's how they often communicate with me) right now!
Love-Light-Abundance to all,

camelman555 5th July 2008 5:18 pm

enjoy *S*

ever heard the song " hooked on a feeling ?"

something about allowing the unfolding

I call it the un-ironing principle


Robin 7th July 2008 4:14 pm

I so love the angels and how they use the numbers to communicate. Congratulations to you!!!!

Jill 12th July 2008 8:51 pm

I just ordered the book "angel numbers 101". I cannot wait to get it. For the last 6 months or so I constantly see the number 613 ALWAYS on clocks (time) and more recently with paperwork, receipts, etc. I definitely know someone is trying to tell me something.


Mariù 13th July 2008 4:17 am

I've been thinking about buying that book too! I so loved this except!
Thank you Doreen and the angels! I so like thinking they talking to us through numbers!

lw777 6th August 2008 8:20 pm

I see triple 3's, 4's and 5's most of the time..more recently, I am noticing 9's ..I know the interpretation of the 9's via your website..just not sure exactly what I am supposed to be doing..carrying the message to others in some asking the angels for clarification the answer? how do I do that? thanks

Rita 10th August 2008 7:43 pm

I started a job roughly a year ago. This job came with a 45 minute commute. During this past year, I thought it seemed weird at first, but I started seeing sequences of three digit numbers. I had heard a long time ago that numbers were a form of spiritual communication, but I brushed it off.
After seeing them and feeling a strong pull when i do see them, I am more than beyond curious. So, I grabbed my laptop today, and initially forgot what I was going to look up- and something said, numerology and angles. I plugged it in and found this website on google.

I am astonished! I get these alot. I see all of them at various times. 444, 333, 888, 222, 111, and it goes on ...... ALOT. When I see them I check my thoughts. I think, what am I thnking about right now. Is there something there I shoud know.

Iam happy to have found this today, as I have been alone with this for sometime. Can anyone teach me more, and explain why is it so strong.
So prevelent everyday!!.... ANd, I mean EVERYDAY.

Timothy Flores 2nd September 2008 12:02 pm

The numbers sightings were and are very interesting to me. A few years ago I started seeing the numbers 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, 999 etc on various objects and then also moved onto 911, 611, 211 and others numbers of the same. Being aware the numbers meant something, but unable to find solid information to help me. And I would always asks my Angels out loud, "help me find the information and please make it clear to me". I believe as the human race moves foward we will all start to notice these messages as our spiritual side awakens and strengthens. Thanks again!

ghost22 14th October 2008 7:52 pm

hello everyone :)

I also see alot of numbers myself..33,44,55,and most recently 22

I seem to see numbers everywhere..I'm also noticing numbers on license plate's, and reciepts.

One day I bought quiznos and it came to $8.88. later that day, i bought dinner and it came to $16.16 :)

I know my angels communicate with me & I enjoy it very much.

carla 3rd December 2008 2:58 pm

hi there i always dream with numbers 4,7,8,3,1,2 and i have no idea the meaning .
do you kown what it means.

JT 18th January 2009 8:21 am

I keep seeing the number 811. Can you tell me what this means?

Alejandra 3rd February 2009 6:32 pm

In the beginning of 2008 I was seeing 555s everywhere...In May 2008 my husband left his well paying job to start the business,we had zero savings.In August I became ill and I did not get better until end of Nov 2008, my brother got divorced (my sister-in-law is like my own sister),many of my friends lost their homes...In the last 2 months my husband and I have been noticing we were constantly getting 666. When I read the meaning of these numbers I was amazed. It took my husband and I a long time to be more focused on the material world, before we beleived money was bad. Since June 2008 we started a business and have been working HARD to make it. We have been busy, and things are looking up. Along with the 666s I was getting 333s, I realize what their saying, now. So I guess the message is, take it slow and refocus. I was feeling the need for some balance in my life. Being a mother of 3 daughters, and working full time in my home office, I have to trust that everthing will be OK. We have been guided all along.

angelk 3rd April 2009 12:06 pm

I love this book. I carry it with me for years so that as I receive the messages from my angels when I am out and about in the world, I have the book to interpret the messages. I am so grateful to be blessed with this understanding and love.

I love Doreen Virtue's books, and this one especially.
Peace and love,

cmryan58 2nd July 2009 6:48 pm

I have been receiving the master number messages for several years. First was the master number 555. It would show up constantly. On license plates, receipts, various pieces of mail. The copiers that I work on at my day job. Recently as of last Christmas I am getting additional master numbers 333, 777, 999, 666 and 222. After reading about Angel Numbers I realize that I have been getting incomplete messages since the master number sequences can be longer than three digits. Also pay attention to color in association with the master numbers. Red, Blue, White, Gold, Green, all have specific meaning in the spiritual. Also don't assume that Angels are limited to only the numbers. I always pay attention to the first song that my car radio plays when I start an errand. I was quite worried when I was hearing "Highway to Hell" every time I got in my car. I can not begin to tell you how happy I was when I heard "Stairway to Heaven."

PS don't change your radio station or your commute. Change your mind and heart.

prettybottles 19th January 2010 12:25 am

man, i have strong feelings about this, in that everything about angels trying to send messages through numbers.. is just completely false. this could be taken as..'ooh she's totally insulting everyone here!' but it should be taken as, 'ok..this person does not resonate with anything doreen virtue has written.' and i just needed to leave my feelings here in case anyone else may have been feeling doubtful.

Shrimpy1022 30th January 2010 3:02 pm

I think I would have to agree with prettybottles. I know it can be spiritually ruining to put trust in things like numerology. I definetly drew the line on this page when I saw the word 'divination'.
I don't know what to make of this, I do believe in angels and they are all around us, but just to be safe, I'd say ask the Lord if some numbers have meaning, if your eyes are drawn to them, etc.
I'm fairly convinced triple numbers have spiritual significance, but it's also important to be aware of what is the Lord's Word, and what isn't.
I don't remember where, but I'm pretty sure I remember somewhere in the Bible it saying something about not seeking the aid and/or guidance of palm readers, fortune tellers, and practitioners of magic, but I don't remember about divination, or if there's any mention of numerology.

I'd say just ask an angel or God, a lot easier and safer than looking it all up on google. xD

miji1963 5th February 2010 1:05 pm

Good Afternoon Angels,

My boyfriends mother just past yesterday at 2:20am which was also my daughter's birthday 02-04-10 and when my boyfriend called me to tell me the sad news, after that, I kept coming across the numbers 220, in the store one lady was playing the numbers 202, i kept seeing telephone numbers 202..etc...I would like to know what does the number 220 signify by the way I decided to play the number since it was what I saw all day long.

Blessings and May HIS Light Keep Shining On Thru You Always ~ God Bless You ~ Millie Munoz aka Miji

Barbara Brose 13th April 2010 5:54 pm

I have know about 444 for years and get that number often. But lately I have been getting 666 not in sequence... and not always in threes but mostly like a 66... those that still mean 666 and is there more to 666 than what is shared here. I recently am recovering from 2 accidents and have pretty much taken it ease lately and meditation a lot. I am also deciding whether to get in a law suit or not. What could 66 or 6606 be telling me? I know there is a message... thank you

femme 14th May 2010 12:56 am

I'm not sure that these interpretations are exactly accurate, although I do have many experiences of triple or even quadruple digits. Having compared various definitions, they don't seem to hold up with life experience in any particular way, but it makes for interesting reading.

ilyzium 30th May 2010 11:50 am

While I don't think I specifically see "angel numbers", well possibly I do but I don't really tune in at the time. However, what I have started seeing recently are symbols, which I see when I meditate or when I'm just sitting and they appear before my eyes. I asked a friend who's a prophet/healer who interestingly informed me that they're actually Biblical symbols that I'm seeing and can be found in the book, Keys of Enoch. He believes that the Archangels are sending me messages that way.

LilyIndigo 9th July 2010 1:19 pm

Hi..I keep seeing 7 & 17 ....sometimes all day everyday, especially when I am at home on the weekends. The first time I saw the #17, I was meditating to allow financial abundance in my life. The only thing I got from the meditation was the #17 appearing in my vision. Since then I've been getting 7 & 17 like crazy. Unable to find any clear explanation for 17 anywhere. Someone suggested to me it could also mean 8.
Can anyone offer some insight?

zalis 4th September 2010 6:46 pm


I've been searching on the web for the meaning of these number - 22 22 44 22, and found your website. Firstable, I would like to thank you for providing so much information, the website is very easy to navigate.

I've been going through a lot of changes in my personal and professional life, and I have been asking my angels to talk to me, to not leaving me alone. So, two days ago I had a very clearly dream an these numbers were on it. They were given to me by a tall man, the numbers were kind of embossed in a white servillete, especially number 44.

I have read the information you've posted, however I was wondering if could help me a bit more. Many, many thanks in advace.

atouchofheart 29th September 2010 4:31 am

I just looked at my website visitors count number which was 9,000 exactly. And I goggled angel numbers and found you :) Thanks, I didn't have to run and get my angel numbers book.

luminina 12th October 2010 8:20 am

Hi everyone,

I just want to share with you my experience with angels - for few months now I've been working on creating a new wonderful job, where my talents and skills to be used at full potential. Of course, I've asked angels for help :smitten:, so I'm overwhelmed with new opportunities. During the process, the combinations of 1, 3 and 7 are the most usual :)
Thank you, Doreen, for being such a good messenger - and thank you, angels! :smitten:

heartandsoul 25th October 2010 11:51 pm

Hoping someone can help me with this. For the past few years I've been seeing the number 46. Anywhere any time from licence plates as you say to bill receipts clocks you name it its ongoing. I have tryed logging down what Im thinking or doing at the time when I see this number but nothing is coming to me what this number could mean . So please I would appreciate it if you could tell me if you know or if theres something else I should be doing.

Thank you for your time.
