The Meaning of 9:11

numerology 911

Have you been seeing the numbers 9 1 1 again and again?

All repeated number patterns and sequences are messages from the Universe but 911 along with some other number codes has a special meaning.

911 is of course the emergency number in the US and is also the day (9/11) of the attacks on the World Trade Center. Because of this, many associate 911 with being a bad omen however, long before either of these events 911 was identified as the Angel number for Lightworkers.

Lightworkers are very similar to Earth Angels and are here to help heal and nurture the planet and its inhabitants from fears and blockages.

All Lightworkers are chosen before birth and have an individually sacred purpose. If you resonate with being a Lightworker, seeing 911 may be a reminder of your duties and responsibilities in this life time.

Numerologically, 911 carries the vibration of the number 9 and 1, as well as the Master Number or Power Number 11.

The number 9 has long been associated with endings that are set to bring about new and spiritually transformed beginnings. It also represents leadership, service to humanity and the Spiritual Laws that govern the Universe.


On its own, the number 1 indicates new beginnings, progress and self-reliance. When it is seen as 11 however, it becomes much more powerful.

The number 11 represents awakening, illumination and enlightenment. Often people report seeing 11:11 when they are experiencing a life changing experience or a spiritual awakening of some kind. It can also be seen as a direct message from your Spirit Guide and Angels that they are close and are offering you guidance.

Bringing all of this together, seeing 911 is really about pursuing your purpose and soul mission and perhaps bringing some things in your life to a close in order for you to move forward on your highest path.

911 also serves as a reminder that you are a leader or Lightworker and that by setting a positive example for others you can help to change and raise the consciousness of the planet.

Repeatedly seeing 911 can also be a sign that your Angels have opened up a new door or chapter for you and are encouraging you to tie up loose ends and start fresh.

If you feel this is the case, follow your intuitive guidance as this new chapter is sure to be one that will help you fulfil your destiny.

Although these interpretations of 911 have been delivered Divinely to many, 911 may hold a special or significant meaning that is unique to you.

See if you can tap into your intuition and discover what special meaning or significance 911 has for you.

    This message resonates with me. I have been seeing this number often and my life purpose is based around the same, thanks for the information. 🙂

    • So glad it resonated for you Jason!

  • Alexis Nonya

    I’ve always wondered, since a lot of times I’d randomly check my phone and it’d just have 9:11 right there on the screen. This has happened multiple times, not back to back but enough to catch my curiosity.

  • Shirzad Farsian

    I have been seeing 9:11 almost twice a day for many years, but i never understood what it meant. I’m still not sure I fully comprehend the message.

  • Chelsie

    I have been seeing 911 for several weeks. I wasn’t really sure what this meant because we attribute 911 to emergency here in the states. However, after reading this article I can certainly see how the number 911 is playing in my life right now. Thank you for this article.

    • Great! glad it helped you gain some insight

    911… It has been seen countless times… My son, born on the 9th month in 2011… This pack of socks my sister bought recently for my birthday next Thursday(she bought clothes too lol) read 9-11. The time of day whether morning or night… These numbers follow me everywhere… Not only that but thing more bizarre… I once sang “It’s the end of the world as we know it” soon after not even an hour later I walked into a gas station and that song was on… How odd, out of billions of songs… That one song.. why the one song..also… Why do children and animals cling to me in such a way… I was once followed home by a cat..
    For blocks it followed me and then waited outside my house meowing all night. It was gone the following morning. Babies love me, they always want me, and seem so in love with my nurturing senses… Why am I so different?

      Nikki you are a lightworker. I am one as well and I have given my heart to God. Now I am growing stronger spiritually daily and learning how to master my life and take advantage of the universal laws the Lord has set for us. In order to full-fill my purpose to create a light to those who are lost in darkness. God has blessed us with a gift we should not hide under a basket. It is a free gift we can give to the world. We can change how people feel by just being around them. Shine Bright xxx

        I am also seeing 911 everywhere I go. On a clock, receipt at the store, even final sale at the gas pump. I mean everywhere. I had to look this number up. My dad past two months ago. While he was on the hospital bed, I promised I would carry on his work through his charities. Something he believed in. I suppose I am also a lightworker? I will dedicate my life to continue his work.

    I have been seeing repeating numbers all day today so that’s what i typed into google: seeing repeating numbers throughout the day on a master day 11. Of course this is like the 5th one down after I was talking to my BFF about how 911 is my number. I just realized that my new roomies license plate has 911 today and sent my friend a pic, then for the next 30 mins I saw 0000, 444, 8888 even one license plate with my initials. I am going through major changes, new job, new house and this really feels like I am going in the right direction. It has been a difficult year and I feel like I am on my path and this really confirmed it for me. Thanks!

    • that’s awesome! 444 is also an angel number. have you seen this- http://foreverconscious.com/numerology-of-number-patterns-and-1111

      • Simfan923

        I didn’t even know that was an angel number. I was born at 4:44 pm. Does that mean anything? For as long as I could remember I’m seeing 9:11 a lot as well.

    • Delorean445

      I thought it was only me, until I saw 9:11 again this morning so I decided to look it up. Now I know i’m not the only one. Its been happening to me for many years now. I starting to feel like the people in the TV show “Sense8”.

  • Zane Baker

    Oh my goodness – it all makers sense now. Thank you so much <3

    911 hasnt just started popping up. It’s always been popping up for maybe the last 6 years or I just started noticing it. What does it mean? I’ve read so many articles and it seems people have their own opinion. The numbers 911 come and go in spirtz. I Can go months and I only see it once a day, 3-4 times a week. What is going on? This isn’t a coincidence is it? Why at the rare chance I am busy and have no clue what time it is, look at the clock and it’s 9:11. In the past few weeks 911 has slowed down and I now noticed 11 all the time. Wake up in the middle of the night, check the time it’s either 4:11, or 12:11, or 2:11, you get the picture. I’m trying my hardest not to notice it throughout the day so it’s popping up in the time. I’m writing this paragraph because right now I just finished making love with my fiancĂ©, turned the lights off in our bedroom and grabbed the tablet for some nighttime reading or researching before I hit the sack. As the screen turned on 9:11 was staring me right in the face. I started thinking what now? So I went reading on the meaning of 911 again and why is 11 popping up in the time very frequently when I came across this site. Never posted anything like this before so I said why not. I’m obviously doing something wrong? Am I seeing these numbers because I want to see them or is it something trying to tell me something and I’m not following along?

    I would occasionally look at the clock at times I didn’t even want to see it so the timing is weird even when I was at school a few years back, I would glance at the clock and see 9:11 in the shape of the hour and minute hands it bugged me for so long and when I would ask others they said I’m just going crazy and it’s all just luck. Could it just be an internal reaction to look at the clocks close to or around that same time. Just subconsciously looking at the clock.

      This happens to me countless times… It is amazingly surprising.

    • Eduardo Guzman

      currrently this happens to me too wtf i want an answer haha

(The number 11 from the flag’s stars probably looked like the World Trade towers.) Perhaps the intent of 9/11 was to taint the meaning of the American flag.

    This has been happening to me a lot. Idk if the numbers have always been there but I’ve been noticed it more and more. Just a while I ago I got up to eat and idk why I looked at the time on the stove and it read 9:11 once I got done eating i came to my room picked my phone and it read 9:11 I have also been noticeing the number 11:11 a lot. As far as I remember little kids have always been so attached to me. And to top it off I was born March 11. Idk why but once I read the meaning of this it got me kinda scared haha

    • no need to be scared! 11:11 is a sign that your life is in alignment and that there is an awakening happening! perhaps you are starting to see things or your life in a new way and you are awakening to the possibilities. 911 represents healing on all levels, you are a healer and perhaps your life is also being healed too! blessings to you 🙂

        I was born 04/05/74. 4+5 =9, 7+4 = 11. About six month ago during a path finding ritual the clock in my kitchen flew from the wall all the way across the kitchen. The big hand was at 9 and the little hand at 11. This happened at 11:45PM. This number has been following me. Looking for answers, Eventually I met the Ayahuasca spirit. She showed me that I wasn’t a recarnation of a previous human life. I was a spirit that was born as a human beaing. The visions under Ayahuasca were so real. They looked more vivid and detailed than this world. She showed me all this power waiting for me, but there was something I was supposed to do first before I can access it. I still don’t know what that is.

        • 911 is the calling of the lightworker. it seems like you will be guided to the next step in the right time. this may help- http://foreverconscious.com/the-meaning-of-911

            What I just shared is just a very small percentage of all the weird experiences I’ve been through. There is a huge awakening and humanity is being helped.

        I have been seeing it for about 3 years. In the car on the clocks basketball games herring it all ways u may be able to thing about seeing it. I told my exwife wife at the time I always see these numbers. I continued to see them and when my wife made the choice to leave when we hugged I looked at the clock and it said 911. I didn’t see it for a while but now I’m starting to see it again very heavily. It’s been heavier for about 8 or 9 months I don’t know.

  • I always see 9:11 on the clock. Everyday, without fail, for years. I went to jail on this day on TWO separate years. Honestly, this number scares me and I know it is the day I will be killed eventually…

  • Arnold Leeflang

    for weaks monts at morning at night 9 11 11 11 so match i forced myself to not watch on the clock and i still did 9 11

  • Raven Wray

    These numbers (911/1111/111) are so prevalent in my life right now. I am listening to my angels and the universe. I came up here to get some verification insight but my senses told me all along what they meant. Now, i have had confirmation. I must continue on my journey as a light warrior. I know my calling and i have known since i was little. I didn’t put it together then, i just knew i couldn’t change, nor turn my back to it. I thank you and love you all!

    • Keith Rimell

      Amazing, we now all have a responsibility to follow our guides and senses that show us stuff at certain times and flash things….but you must all also know that it is going to be a hard road ahead as the whole system we humans know needs to be changed…..

  • Daniel Baksh

    I’ve been going through a very rough time in life with my career since 2012. When I took the current job that I’m in back in April 2016, I remember repeatedly seeing 911, now 1 year later I’ve been seeing 11:11 more often? What does this mean? How should I proceed in life?
