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

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

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

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

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

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.
