Numerology & Subconscious Mind – What it Means to Keep Seeing the Same Numbers Over and Over

Updated on February 15, 2013

Many, many people have told us about having the experience of repeatedly seeing the same number, or number pattern. Perhaps they look at the clock and see 11:34, then glance at a store receipt total of $11.34, then hear of a historical event happening in the year 1134 BC, all in the same day. Or they keep seeing the same number or numbers for months, even years.

We feel it's often a subconscious, even super-conscious, attachment to the energy behind the numbers. Along with indicating quantity, as we've mentioned before, each number represents a specific type of energy, or quality. Since we believe, based on our research, that all things happen for a reason and that order (as numerologically represented by numbers), instead of chaos or randomness, exists in this universe, you noticing select numbers again and again holds meaning.

In a heightened state of mind, positive or negative (e.g., joy or trauma), a person sees a particular number and that number may be burned into their subconscious. Or, a person consciously, "randomly" chooses a certain number one day for whatever reason and that choice proves to be beneficial, and they stick with it, calling it "lucky."

Or, a person reads somewhere that the number 943, for example, equals prosperity and divine assistance (even if it doesn't), so they embrace that number and subjectively view it as fortunate.

It's also common for a person to have a fixation with certain numbers that are significant in his/her personal numerology charts, before even knowing anything about his/her charts. This too could be considered an unconscious attachment.

For example, a person has potent "3" energy in the positions of the charts representing inner desire, motivation, and that with which they are most comfortable. That person says "...whenever I see ‘3' (or 111 <1+1+1=3>, or 12 <1+2=3>, etc.) I know it's a good sign, I've always liked the number 3..." In many cases, it appears to us that the subject's subconscious, even higher-self, might be trying to make them consciously aware of something.

If you want more clarity, it would require you to decipher the energy behind the numbers. Use the number symbolism guide below. It is absolutely consistent with the most reliable sources. Keep in mind that the energy symbolism behind specific numbers has remained the same for eons; it's a solid and reliable tradition, rooted in objective empirical observation. We make this point so that you avoid wasting time with new, creative, subjective (and false) interpretations, such as those in some modern New Age publications. It's unfortunate to see numerological misinformation published by popular New Age authors. Most mean well, but they are in a position where a lot of people believe everything they say and write, so shallow and false interpretations do nothing more than mislead, confuse, and tarnish the image of the science of numerology. As has been said, the New Age has a bad name for a good reason.

When interpreting multiple-digit numbers, use fadic addition to reduce all numbers to a single digit. The single digit, the root number, is the most important number. For example, 7556 = 7+5+5+6 = 23 = 2+3 = 5.

Also, an individual number's potency in a multiple-digit number is based on its position. In the number 7556, 7 is strongest, then 5, then the next 5, and 6 carries the weakest energy force in this multiple-digit number.

At this time, don't concern yourself with translating the remaining parts of a multiple-digit number after reducing it to a single digit. The individual numbers (along with the 7000, 500, and 50, comprising 7556, for example) of the original multiple-digit number also have relative representation, but those are topics for advanced study/interpretation. Master Numbers (11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99) and Karmic Debt numbers (13, 14, 16, and 19) are also more involved subjects.

Please note that when you get into advanced interpretation beyond reducing all multiple-digit numbers to a single number, avoid erroneously chopping up multiple-digit numbers in such a fashion: deriving 84, 32, and 415, for instance, from 8432415, or extracting 11, or 311 from 3113.

We say erroneous because through our many years of empirical research this style has proven to be invalid. Besides, every treasured, workable, numerical kabala (or cabala--sacred number and/or letter codes used to derive meaning/truth) throughout history, including the sacred ancient Hebrew Kabbalah, instead uses the following method: 8432415, for example, is comprised of 8000000, 400000, 30000, 2000, 400, 10, and 5; and then 27 (through fadic addition adding up all the numbers), and 9 (the root number, adding 2+7 of 27).

The exception to this rule is if you glance at a numerical sequence and only "see" part of it. For example, you look at 1338 and only "see" the 33 (your subconscious or higher-self is fixed on those two numbers only). Therefore, you accept it and disregard the other numbers. 33 = 3+3=6. See below for more information about the number 6. Still, the numbers, no matter how they are encountered, always represent the same types of energy. For instance, just as progressiveness isn't associated with the root number 4, gregariousness isn't linked to the root number 7.

We've also encountered people who have an uncommon connection to other dimensions (as represented by the unique patterns in their comprehensive numerology and astrology charts) and they "get information" through numerical signs and through other ways, much more freely than most people, whether they want to or not. Often, the receiving of these "messages" can be unsettling and dramatic, until they become comfortable with it.

Once you move beyond any fear and get in touch with your subconscious, align yourself more firmly with your higher-self/super-conscious, and/or embrace a possible uncommon "connection," you'll be in a position to decipher the messages more easily.

      HI scott, for increasing my mathematical ability and sometimes just for pure fun i tried to experiment with numbers looking for number patterns everywhere. while at driving , i notice the numberplates, clocks ,miscellaneous indexes, phone numbers, number of people in a room and many such odd things. and from say some past 6 months i locate ever number to a single of 9. most of the time its 9 or 9 11. i have become so habitual of adding numbers now and getting a 9 in the end as well that it feels strange. please suggest somethin relevant if 9 reallly does wants to say something to me.

      Hi Scott, I keep seeing the number 267 everywhere. It has been happening for quite a long time. I don't know why my subconscious mind is holding onto it. Do you have anything to say about it?

      I too tend to see the number 55. Over the years there are periods of times where this number seems to stand out more than other times. It began approximately 20 years ago when I had a dream of the number 5 being placed on a square. The top of the five was black with a white background and the bottom part of the number was the reverse. The square was spinning towards me. Shortly after the first dream I had another dream about the number five, don't really recall the second dream, but ever since then, I tend to see the number 55. I often wonder why this may be. Can you offer any thoughts on it?

      Hi Scott,

      I've been seing number 33 for quite some time. When I look at the clock, it's always 12:33, 13:33, 14:33, 15:33 etc. Besides 33, I see these mirrored numbers when I look at the clock (for example: 15:51, 12:21, 21:12 etc.)

      It first started with mirrored numbers and then continued with 33. I started seeing these numbers about 5-6 months ago.

      5-6 months ago I decided to apply for overseas education and study abroad. I worked very hard, studies for months and for some reason, I had such a positive feeling about my intent. The night before I got my decisions, I was seeing number 33 everywhere. I even woke up after a terrible nightmare, looked at the clock and it was 03:30. (both mirrored and 33!) -- I was rejected at every university to which I applied. The worst thing is - I'm still seeing these numbers. Few days ago, I was listing a magazine and I accidentally opened a page where there was some information about a university in my town. Of course, the number of the page was 33.

      I'm scared that these numbers carry some sort of negative energy or some sort of warning. My hopes were crushed when I realized that I wouldn't be going overseas.

      Can you tell me what should this mean?
