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.

I joined this sight today as a member and looking around came across this article. I have seen the numbers 333 on my clock so many times when awaking at night in times of trouble or need and wondered why am i waking up at this time of night soo often, now i know what it meant.Thankyou.

BlindJax 23rd January 2011 4:48 pm

My number is 22. Some say I am crazy, some say I look for this number, crazy I might be but I do not look for this number it just pops up everywhere. speeding up to get ahead of a car coming off the on ramp and having that same car pass me to only get in front of me. I am a transplant to Tn and my exit is 22. I had never been in trouble till I moved here to the point arrested Oct 22 placed in unit 22. Commercials on Tv, random photos on line.

Some of my co workers teased me about this till they felt it first hand. I can not find anything to explain whats going on but I know if I see it more then once in a day and constantly all week then something bad will happen.

I have read 22 is a master number, I was born on the 4th of November, I do believe in unseen codes I call my number a direction code, if I am doing something and only see this number once or twice in a week then I feel I am at least heading in the right direction if I see it everyday and allot then I know I need to change direction but sense I do not fully understand what is happening which direction do I change too?

shanal66 6th June 2011 2:24 pm

I have a question regarding the number 66. Since I was very young all I can remember is being obsessed with number 66. It was the first number I learned while other toddlers were learning 1 to 10. I do find the number follows me and surprisingly it a very lucky number for me. I recently seen a spiritual medium and she was very interested in my energy, she said that I had an ancient with me and that ancient came to me recently from a gateway or doorway open in 2008. Could this number 66 be connected in anyway to the ancient or the doorway?

Thank you,

I am an Angel and found this web site in a goggle search. My Angel number is 744 and it coresponds to the gematria of my hebrew name Kolbamibiodhashaar which means every came by way of the gate.It reduces to 6 and is the gate to "netzach" eternity related to the tree of life. Such as is defined in the Bible as Jacobs latter. 7 and 4 are defined by the 7th Emanation (Netzach/Eternity)of the tree of life and mated to it 4 refers to the 4th Commandment(Thou shall keep the Shabot day holy). The Commandments are the roots of the tree of life(etz hiam in hebrew)the guardian angels which you have defined thier number codes in this article are borne out of the column of light or the right column.I'm an arche Angel and center column. To the left, the column of darkness and the gate of scheole serviced by the Angel(gate)AbaaAdonn. Back to the 7th emmanation and the fourth commandment is also the location of New Jerusalim as descrbed in Revalation 22 is also the throne of Jesus.(J the 10th letter of the alphebet,E the 5th,S the 19th,U the 21th and S the 19th add up to 74. HAPPY JULY 4TH (7/4)

captainbirdos 23rd August 2011 9:37 am

Before I start my Dad passed away 2 months ago of complications due to lung cancer, my whole family was by his side when he passed & it was very peaceful. My mum is a very spiritual person and accepted that he had gone to a better place and he was on a journey.
I am not a spiritual person but I did feel he was on a journey and for the weeks after his death I felt he was travelling far far away. But he hadnt settled yet.
Then about 6 weeks ago I started noticing the number 46, at first I just thought it was a coincidence, then it increased in frequency and evrytime I looked at my phone iy would say 2.46 or 6.46 but there was always a 46. The more I noticed it the more it increased so I told my wife, children & a few friends and I started saying look 46 they began to notice it too. To reinforce this I was out fishing with my son using all my dads fishing equiptment for the first time since his death, we had been there for about 3 hours & I had no idea of the time, my son said out of the blue, have a look at your phone, without thinking I did and it changed to 46.
I knew the number w

ALL OF THE TIME....EVERYDAY.... for many years now...all I see 911.....what is the meaning ?? Its getting to be!!

Cheetah613 3rd October 2011 7:31 pm

Hi Jill my name is Esmeralda. For the past 7 years, since 2004 I also have been seeing the #613 everywhere. Back then my cell number began with 613, my daughter was born on June 13 which is 613, my license plates spell out the number 613. It drove me crazy for a while not knowing what it could mean. Then the numbers stared swtiching to 913, 931, 631, but it was always those same three numbers. The number 9 upside down its like the number 6. My boyfriend who i was dating at that time, his cell # started with 913. It was crazy. I will see it in the time, receipts, parking tickets, tags, raffles. Then one day i confessed to my x and he also admitted he was seeing that number everywhere too. Not sure what it means and til this day i am confuse and it keeps haunting me. Then when i changed cell phone companies my new number right now begins with 913.

icis1 18th November 2011 11:24 pm

I'm fairly new to angel numbers and synchronicities. After viewing "The Secret," about a month ago, I starting seeing numbers and signs everywhere. These numbers and signs correlate to things going on in my life. At first I saw 44, 45, 55, 66, and 444. Then it would depend on the day. This past week, I have been sseeing 3 digit numbers with the first and last being the same ex. 9:19, or 5:05, of 747 of 8:08. What does this mean? Can't find anything on the web about this.
Its funny because even thought my parents don't step a foot in church. They make a point to see if I saw or heard they are coming around to this philosoophy especially my dad.

icis1 25th November 2011 1:37 am

Barbara, I too have been seeing lots of numbers. See my message in this thread #42. I see 444 and 66 and 666 along with lots of other numbers. It just depends on the day. I have hooked up with some others who only see 66 and 666 on a site called Riding the Beast. We seem to think these are messages from above and that we've been chosen to receive them for some reason. We don't think they are anything bad.

Enilora 22nd December 2011 5:45 am

I am currently working on getting in touch with my angel and felt drawn to the numbers 444, when I read what these numbers meant I could not help but shed tears:,)

Butterfly1000 31st December 2011 7:27 pm

Hi, i'm new here and going thru an emotional time where i keep asking god & guides for guidance and signs and i have been seeing 69 and 96 and have seen 11.11 a few times too. I get a good feeling when i see them. So is this positive that what i am asking for is manifesting or does it have any other meaning????

searching 25th March 2012 1:29 pm

I see this number 444 very often. I found something in Google and would like to share:

Google Search: “Find Angel”

If you are interested, see it yourself …

riskystyles 23rd May 2012 5:32 pm

I been reading everybodys comments on thesesnumbers but I don't see a comment on the numbers 123 which I been seeing for years and every time I see the numbers I know something bad is going to happen like a argument, disagreement, or something just not going to go right as planned.its hard for me to figure it out but when I do it's to late..i need help our advice asap

karend 30th June 2012 10:04 am

Hello, I"m trying to figure out why I keep seeing 1010. I can usually figure my other numbers out, but 1010 is puzzling to me. I'll try and research more on this site but if anyone has anything they'd like to share please do so. Thanks.

amanda826 14th August 2012 11:22 pm

I have been ready alot of comments about the numbers, I see numbers all the time 777 444 1111 333 over and over. This has been happening everyday, I really believe it's the angels around. I see 333 all the time so last December I got a scratch off when I scratched it I won on the number 3. My truck tells the miles of gas left on the vehicle and when I started it up, after I scratched the number the truck said 333 I just had fuel it up, also my dad who passed always played the number 333. I really do believe he's around and that was a sign from him, by the way the scratch off paid 10,000.00. I see number all the time and smile about it, because I know they are around us.

ikin 8th November 2012 3:00 pm

I'm receiving number seqence 48 for 6 or 7 years and now I'm very happy for finding this useful site finally. It's very weird that at first it began as 2048 on clocks and that is exactly the example for 4-digit combinations in the message above.But I'm absolutely sure that this is not the meaning of my personal message. Later in time my number message reduced to just 48 (and sometimes as 348 or 483) but mostly just as 48 and I still don't know what its meaning is.So, Doreen please would you give me some more specific direction of what that number sequence could mean. Thank you very much.

jeni 21st November 2012 5:24 pm

hi i keep seeing the number 55 everywhere for a number of months now,could you tell me what this means please ??

frankieusmc 24th March 2013 2:03 pm

Rajah Jay 31st March 2013 3:05 pm

I've been in the middle of a really hard time in my life. This page has just encouraged me that I can do it.
The numbers that I've been obsessed with since I was a kid have been bouncing around in my head recently and I just wanted to see what they meant.
Turns out they correspond perfectly with what I am going through and make complete and total sense.
I am so happy that this page was here and helped me so much.
Thank you.

Shana1111 11th February 2014 1:30 am

Does this mean we are chosen to lead the right way?

jeffmitchell 18th March 2014 11:47 am

I'm seeing the numbers911 every time i look at the clock i have a strong association with those numbers, ny, and me calling 911 is there another meaning those numbers have? I've seen them for several months and expected tragic events but nothing yet its got my attention, but i haven't seen anything new

Erika Tuulik 3rd April 2014 7:10 pm

First of all - greetings!
My story is quite simple and "funny" in same time, because my family thought always, that I am "realistic" person... BUT... It all started one year ago, when I made lets say "restart" in my life... I started to see time 11:11 almost every day.... in mobile phone, PC, car... First of all I thought, that its just biological clock... But then became soon 22:22. Then I started to recieve bills with 3 same number combinations. For long time I thought, that its just kind of "crazyness"... until I visit one small shop which was opened from 11:11:). Offcourse I asked from shop owner about this timing... and so I got hints to visit this page:). Last monthes I see every day... (cars, houses...) numbered mostly... 999,777,555... and severe of times per day. Like yesterday I saw during 3 minutes 999,888,777.... no 666 in the middle and then 555, 333.
It seams, that these numbers became part of my life already.
But atleast good to know, that I am not totally crazy and there is also others, who have same "story"!
And many thanks to Doreen... what You do is just great!

Theodora 24th September 2014 12:21 pm

Its amazing i kept seeing the numbers 444. And also i see sign post or stickers on cars that kept saying Metamorphosis, Grace, sometimes Happy Days... diff things i cant remember now. But the numbers 444 kept popping up in different places. So one day i was lying in bed wondering about stuff and in flys a butterfly and i knew i just had to google the significance of it and metamorphosis hit me. It meant change, Faith, Love, intuition,emergence,awakening, illumination and evolution into a new Phase of Life. so a few weeks later i checked 444 and i was like ok great to know the angels are with me.

Then i meet my soul mate his phone number has 444 am like Wow, he has been like an angel to me since we met. Helping me realise my dream of being in the media. He believes in me so much. Recently i see 11.11 a lot too and 333. infact today 333 called me i was in shock. i didn't pick up.

what does all this mean?

Yongmyn 15th June 2015 9:24 pm

Hi Doreen,

Why do I always see number 4 or 44 everywhere I am? What does this mean? It's been 4 months now since this happen to me and still happening.

Thank you
