Do you find yourself glancing at the clock at the same time every day? Maybe you’ve been seeing an uncanny series of repeated numbers on it regularly like 11:11. Perhaps you had seen other repeating numbers 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 on the regular whenever you would look at the clock or pause a video while watching youtube. To a certain extent, it may have felt like an eerie coincidence, a supernatural encounter, or downright an otherworldly to have encountered such experience. I would want to assure you that you are not going crazy nor you are experiencing this alone. It is not a coincidence that you had encountered them. In this newsletter today, we will be exploring more about the 11:11 phenomena and why you may be seeing it.


Synchronicity is a word coined by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung to describe the occurrence of meaningful coincidences that seem to have no cause; that is where the coincidences are acausal. Jung believed that many occurrences labeled as “coincidences,” are not actually due to chance but the belief that these occurrences are directly related to the observer’s mind, and serve to provide powerful insight, direction, and guidance.

“Synchronicity is the coming together of inner and outer events in a way that cannot be explained by cause and effect and that is meaningful to the observer.” ― Carl Jung

When you experienced synchronicity, you have experiences that seem far too significant to be mere day-to-day serendipitous encounters. Some people may describe these as ‘freak encounters,’ ‘miracles,’ ‘signs from the heavens,’ guidance from one’s spirit guides, or even mystical instances of Soul connection.

Common forms of Synchronicity:

  • Seeing repeated numbers (such as 11:11, 2:22, 7:07, 5:55, etc.)
  • Thinking about something, then mysteriously having it happen
  • Being in the right place at the right time
  • Dreaming about people/animals/places, then seeing them repeatedly in real life
  • Seeing repeated symbols (such as the infinity sign, the triangle, the tree of life, etc.)
