The Meaning Behind Repeating Numbers

Home » Blog » Numerology » The Meaning Behind Repeating Numbers

October is a mystical and magical month. We celebrate Halloween or the Celtic Samhain at the end of this month symbolizing the thinning of the veils between the spiritual and material worlds. 

Hello and Welcome, I am Sara Bachmeier with Egyptian Numerology bringing to you the meaning within Repeating number sequences. 

During this auspicious time, people are witnessing more and more signs from the higher realms in the form of repeating numbers.

Types of Number Sequences

There are several types of Number Sequences that our Guides and Angels use to get our attention, and each have a specific meaning. 

At the beginning of our awakening, it is common to start witnessing Angel numbers. We often wonder what the significance or meaning is behind these ominous symbols. After a length of time on our spiritual journey, it becomes commonplace to witness these signs and we learn that every individual has a unique relationship to these sightings. 

There is never a one size fits all when it comes to deciphering a spiritual meaning behind angel numbers and if we are intuitive, we know the meaning is contained within what is going on within us at the very precise moment we see these numbers. 

There is always a general meaning within the energy of every number, but we need to learn how to decode our own personal messages with our own personal Guides. In other words, two people can see the same number combination at the same time and come up with two different definitions that are personal to them. 

Egyptian Numerology believes in teaching people how to get in touch with their own unique navigation system. It would be erroneous for me to tell you about the meaning behind your own synchronicity although, I can guide your direction.

When you raise your energy field, synchronicity, patterns, doorways, and portals begin to open. Your perception shifts and you are able to see the finer details that you were not previously exposed to.

What was once a rock laying on the ground, becomes a speaking stone that can share many stories. A tree that bears the fruit you eat becomes a living organism that gives and receives vital energy.

The sky, sun, moon, and earth are no longer taken for granted on a daily basis but instead become important sources of information that feed and nurture us.

The same goes for numbers. What was once just a symbol used for counting, becomes a Sacred light code that is impregnated with ancient wisdom.

If your perception has not developed a fine attunement to the subtle energies of the universe, it will be difficult to resonate with the information from Egyptian Numerology and that is why I am such a fanatic and advocate regarding raising energy fields passionately and consistently.

You must develop laser vision to see through the material world and into the realm of spirit living within everything carrying a life force and spiritual pulse, even numbers. 

The higher vibrations of numbers are magical, powerful and omnipotent. Developing a kinship with your own personal frequencies act as a key to open doors of limitless possibilities.

One must be dedicated to pursuing their life mission, including the path to self-love, forgiveness, and service.

You are always living parallel to your soul life agreement. The difference between being consciously creating with Spirit vs. unconsciously creating with Spirit is choosing awareness vs. staying asleep.

When you are aware, you have the freedom of choice. When you are asleep, you roll with the unending tides.

Common Number Patterns

The most common number patterns are:

  • Repeating single digit numbers
  • Mirror numbers
  • Reversed numbers
  • Ascending numbers
  • Descending numbers
  • Master numbers
  • Angel numbers

There are different ways of receiving number light codes. You can take them at face value. You can add the numbers and reduce them to a single digit, or if your synchronicity combination comes with different numbers in your pattern, you can take each number separately. Always follow your intuition. Sometimes the meaning won’t be clear right away, so don’t be in a hurry to dismiss it. 

Connecting with Spirit through numbers is an ancient Sacred art of communication and whether you are clear or not regarding their specific meanings in the moment, don’t forget to say, Thank You to Spirit for this moment of Divine Union. 

Single Digit Numbers

They are the easiest to decode because there is no further action required. These numbers are taken at face value and the focus is on one specific frequency. Many times, our Guides and Angels will use your Soul Urge number (day of birth) or your life Path Number to get your attention. It may also be a special day on the calendar or a number that is personal to you. Places where the single digit number comes into play is in the total of our house or apartment number, phone number, license plate, driver’s license, social security number and in advanced cases, the “Twin Heart” number in regard to important relationships.

Master Numbers

These are double digits such as 11, 22, 33 on up to 99. These have the double impact of a single digit number and are always Divinely inspired. When in search for the meaning of a Master Number, it may be a reflection of a vibration you currently carry in your Soul Contract, or it may be the vibration that your Spirit Guide carries. In my book, The Path of a Wounded Healer, I have a chapter on the meaning within Inner Guidance numbers. It is a helpful tool when working with the Higher beings. It can also be an indication of an energy you will need to embody in order to move forward on a current project or plan. Your Guides are making themselves known and want you to ask for assistance.

Mirror Numbers

They are a numeric pattern that mirrors itself such as 1010, 1111, 1212, 4141, 8989, and so forth. When you see mirror numbers, Spirit is sending you a strong message and wants you to pay attention. Deciphering the meaning within this combination can be a little tricky because it is not treated like any other number pattern. You do not add these numbers but rather work with the energy of the first two numbers. For instance, if your number is 2121, you will be dealing with number 21. Ask yourself if the number has significance to you. If not, then break down the numbers individually and apply their meaning to your life. In this case, the number 2 is suggesting balancing the yin & yang qualities of your features and the number 1 points to being a conduit between the Spirit and matter after balancing your energy.

Reversed Numbers

They are similar to mirror numbers, but the numbers are reversed such as 1221, 1001, 1441, and so on. This is a fun way to receive messages from Spirit. In this case, the numbers can be interpreted a few different ways. Always find the meaning of the numbers individually first. In reversed numbers, we are looking at two sets of Master numbers so there is no need to add them up to get a total. Work with the meaning behind the Master Numbers. In my Book, Egyptian Numerology; Emergence into the Fifth Dimension, I list the meaning of all the master numbers from 11 through to 99. I also have a chapter on the importance of the number Zero. And yes, in Egyptian numerology, the zero is considered a number. 

Ascending Numbers

These patterns are not as common as the others. Oftentimes people see these numbers on the clock as they wake in the middle of the night such as, 12:34, 1:23, 4:56, etc.…Ascending number patterns always count upward, and they point to the future. In this case, you add the numbers and apply the meaning of the vibration to your life in order to support an upcoming event, revelation, or guidance that will soon be coming to the surface.

Descending Numbers  

These are like the ascending numbers except that they point downward. For instance, 3:21, 4:32, 6:54. Descending numbers are meant to reflect an incident that happened in the past that is coming into focus to be healed.  You can add these numbers up and allow the total (reduced to a single digit), to help you decode a lesson that needs to be learned from an event that happened before the present moment. You may know what the numbers are pointing to, or you may not. Oftentimes, if you align with the message, the memory comes to the surface to be healed and cleared.

Angel Numbers  

These are the most common and come in a sequence of 3. The number three In and of itself is the vibration current for the sacred Trinity of Spirit, body, & mind. The number three also holds the meaning of the messenger so, when you see the number pattern with 3 numbers, it is a sign from Spirit sending you a sacred message. Angel numbers are fun to play with. You can look up the meaning of the number of your symbol, or you can add the numbers to get the total and use the total as your message. Most people do both, they look up the meaning of the number and the total. Many times, people are attracted to just one specific number sequence such as 111, 222, 444. And these synchronicities will show up quite often until the message is delivered and received by the recipient. I like to look at these messages as my angels and guides sending me the vibration that I most need to support me on my journey at the present moment. I personally tend to interpret angel numbers by looking at the number being presented to me tripled in power and intensity. Rather than adding them up to get a total. I’d like to think that my guides and angels use the easiest mode possible to express their sentiments.

Definitions of Numbers

Now we are getting into the DEFINITIONS OF NUMBERS I am leaving you with a brief description of the basic qualities of the numbers found in Egyptian numerology. 

Number One

Serves as a conduit between Spirit and matter using electrical currents when connected to Source. The power of this energy is known to be innovative, creative, and strengthens intuition. It is the protector of free thinkers, guardian of the people and environment, and the inventor. It seeks authenticity, confidence, laser focus and deep concentration. Number one is like a straight arrow which reflects willpower and precision. It embodies the qualities of individuality, self-discovery, and self-empowerment. Unlike the energy of the zero, which is feminine and receptive, the number one has a masculine and willful energy. The higher attribute for this frequency is interdependence. 

Number Two

This is the vibration of two 1’s standing side-by-side. One is masculine and the other one is Feminine. Both seek balance and integration when in relationship to each other and complement the opposing nature of their differences. This energy reflects the gifts of acceptance, Harmony, creativity, and psychic awareness. Two is the number of duality; the split we perceive in life between light and darkness, inside and outside, yin and yang, masculine and feminine, good and bad, life and death, mind and heart, and so on. In Egyptian numerology the number two’s highest potential is to establish a state of neutrality and rise above judgement of self and others. When this level of consciousness is achieved, it opens an individual to options not found in the “human condition”.

Number Three

It is typically seen as a lucky and powerful number and is symbolic of success, intuition, and good fortune.  It embodies the divine principle that underlines all life such as birth, life and death/ beginning, middle and end/ past, present and future and so forth.  It represents the triangle symbolizing the synergistic Sacred current of body, mind and spirit and when all three of these qualities are in sync, they facilitate the highest expression of divinity. The number three is the messenger. In Egyptian Numerology, the number three comes in the form of “Divine Messenger”, it is the energy of expressions used by the Angels & Ascended Masters to communicate with us via the power of the “Three’s” such as the triple number sequence. 111, 222, 333 etc. The angels use the number three to strengthen their bond with humanity. There is always a conjuring of magic when the number three is being presented within the language of creativity.

Number Four

The number four has been misunderstood in numerology for so long that it is time to break the curse. Oftentimes, we find superstition around Powerful numbers to deter people from accessing the ancient wisdom locked within these auspicious frequencies. It is usually started by dark forces that know about these powers and don’t want people to learn how to access them.  The number four in basic numerology has been called a karmic number, sickly number, and just plain bad luck. But the truth is that the number is of course the opposite of all those things. It represents the balancing of elements on our planet earth including air, water, fire and earth… It is the number that the druids use to conjure their alchemy to promote healing. Native Americans also know the significance of this number.   Four carries the healing properties from the heart and uses the elements to build a better world. It anchors and balances a deeper meaning to our lives and holds an inner intelligence of the active ingredients that holds all of life in balance. The symbolic meaning of number Four deals with stability and invokes the grounded nature of all things

Number Five 

Five is the number of adventure and freedom. It is a very sensual number and reminds us to enjoy life, try new experiences, and seek out pleasure. This number is also connected to experiencing life changes (such as marriage, divorce, new jobs) and making important choices. In Egyptian Numerology, the Number Five works with Spirit through transformation using the rising of the Phoenix and Fire healing energy to transmute lead into gold meaning transposing our challenges into possibilities. 

Number Six

It represents a balance between the earthly and spiritual realms. It points to developing your intuitive gifts and is connected to clairvoyance, and our other extrasensory capacities (hence the “sixth” sense). In Egyptian Numerology, the Number Six is called the “Light House”. When connected to Source, their purpose is to channel Higher wisdom and to learn to trust their intuition. When they do this, they form a sacred bond allowing them to relay messages from the Higher realms.

Number Seven  

Sevenis a mystical number associated with synchronicity, luck, and perfection (seven chakras, seven colors of the rainbow, seven days in the week, etc.). It is also seen as an esoteric energy connected to spiritual awakening, introspection, and the development of wisdom. This number is connected with the pursuit of truth and the desire for a deeper understanding of life.

In Egyptian numerology, the number seven is the Frequency closely linked with a connection to ancient civilizations and is known as the “seeker”. It promotes channeling abilities by releasing the intellect and opening to the higher realms. 

Number Eight 

Eight is connected to abundance, prosperity, and financial well-being. Resourcefulness, hard work, determination, and inner strength are all qualities of eight. Spiritually, eight is seen as an equalizer or balancer (hence its shape) that unites the conscious with the unconscious, and earthly with the spiritual. In other words, eight is reflected in the proverb “you will reap what you sow”.

In Egyptian Numerology, the Number Eight is about balancing energy and receiving manifestation through connecting with inner abundance, inner authority, inner strength and being in integrity with communication.

Number Nine

This numberpoints to a life of fulfillment.  Wisdom, self-examination, enlightenment, and achieving higher consciousness are all qualities associated with number nine. It is connected to one’s higher purpose and ultimate life mission; this number encourages us to take a bird’s eye view of our lives.

Egyptian Numerology recognizes the number 9 as a walker of integrity and light. It is the vibration of the light warrior, and their true source of power comes from receiving the sacred initiation of forgiveness and compassion through completing their souls journey. 

The number nine relates to wisdom and responsibility, and their ultimate goal is to serve humanity. This vibration has come to serve the world and make it a better place for all to live in. They look for solutions in the form of inspiration, intuition, and creativity. They are psychic, sensitive, and thoughtful people who understand other people’s experiences because they have gone through many challenges and are equipped to offer empathy, support, love, and encouragement. 

The energy of the number nine carries a visionary and insightful path into the Universal higher laws of life. It is often the path of the priestess, priest, shaman, and the Druid.

Number Zero

The metaphysical zero symbolizes the absolute, uniting spirit and matter. It is represented by the moon and vibration of eternity and the sound of the Om. From this sound and vibration, all other numbers were created. The center of the circle represents our universe and contains all of our elements: earth, air, water, fire, and ether. Of all the other numbers, the zero comes closest to the vibration and spiritual essence of Source.

Number 10

It represents completion: the ending of a cycle and the attainment of wholeness. Ten is both masculine and feminine and reflects the unity that is possible once we integrate the fragmented pieces of our inner selves.

In Egyptian Numerology, the Number ten represents the attainment of high standing and the merging into becoming a community leader. It recognizes the integration of Source into the lives that have elevated their consciousness from duality and have now entered the realm of “All Possibilities”.

Master Numbers

Master Numbers will be covered as a separate topic.

Number Twelve

Twelve is the number of cosmic orders. For example, there are twelve months in the year, twelve astrological signs, twelve hours in a day, twelve personality archetypes, etc. According to numerology, twelve is the number of creative and individualistic self-expression.

In Egyptian Numerology, the Number Twelve represents the “Master”. It is a sign of self-mastery in a field leading to your Soul Life Path, Purpose or Destiny. It will signify that a Master is present or will be showing up in the near future.

So, this concludes the number descriptions found in Egyptian numerology. 

It takes a good amount of awareness to notice Number patterns and Spirit recognizes your alertness when using these as signs to get your attention.

When you see these patterns, it will ALWAYS pertain to an experience that is currently going on in your life so please don’t be in a hurry to decode these sacred light codes. Take your time and use your inner-knowing, intuition, and sensitivity to align with spirit. 

Waking up between 1:00 and  4:00 in the morning is called the “Dead Zone”. This is when the veils are thinned between our realm and the Spirit realm. It is easier for Spirit to contact you including deceased loved ones. When you continuously awaken at the same time repeatedly for several days, there is a message for you.

If you want to learn about your soul contract and the meaning behind your personal numbers, please refer to my books; Egyptian Numerology; Emergence into the Fifth Dimension and The Path of a Wounded Healer; Liberation is for the Asking or schedule a private reading with me off my website. Have a Blessed Week!

I was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. Being a small and conservative tourist town, I felt most comfortable being a “Closet Spiritualist.” I have a teaching degree and the birth of my daughter inspired me to follow my passion to create and open a pre-school called “Readiness Daycare” under the Waldorf philosophy. In 2016, I took an intensive course in Egyptian Numerology taught by Dr. Sharon Forrest. I have always been drawn to Astrology & Numerology and this modality connects the two as a metaphysical and esoteric science and philosophy. After the course, I spent a year to advance my spiritual directive and wrote the book “Egyptian Numerology; Emergence into The Fifth Dimension”. I offered Chart Readings and started a 90-day online program called “Uncover & Discover your Soul Life Agreement with Egyptian Numerology”. I am publishing my second book this year called “The Path of a Wounded Healer; Liberation is for the asking”. My goal and Mission is to help individuals awaken to their unique gifts and abilities, point in the direction of their “North Star” which guides them on their path to explore, expand, and evolve into their Soul Life Purpose in this incarnation. Namaste 🙏 Sara Bachmeier Website
