Does it make you giddy when you see the time 11:11 on the clock? Does it put a smile on your face when you glance at your watch when it’s precisely 4:44? Do you find special meaning in the numbers 222, 333, or the time 12:34? If you find significance in seeing these numbers, you’re not alone. Many of us seem to be programmed to notice our “lucky numbers” when we see them in our surroundings. It often happens when you look at the clock, but many of us also see them on license plates, billboards, bumper stickers, and even the totals on our grocery receipts. The real question is . . . what does it all mean?

Truthfully, you don’t always need a psychic medium to make heads or tails of a certain spiritual phenomenon, but if you want my intuitive two cents . . . here it is. Most of the time when you notice your favorite numbers, it’s essentially a friendly “hello” from your guardian angels and loved ones in Heaven. It’s a little technique they use to put smiles on our faces. I honestly believe they get a kick out of it when we look for signs and synchronicity in the midst of our everyday lives. Therefore, the actual numbers themselves (11:11, 2:22, 333, 444, etc.) do not technically mean anything. Typically, the numbers are just attention grabbers from our loved ones in spirit; a wink to let us know they’re thinking of us.

While most times and numbers like 11:11 and 222 have no particular numerical meaning, others actually DO. For example, if your grandpa’s birthday was on October 5th and you happen to glance at the clock at 10:05 just as you’re thinking about him and missing him, then there’s absolutely significance to those particular digits – it would obviously be a sign directly from your deceased grandpa. Or, let’s say your husband Mike has passed away. It’s possible for him to give you an intuitive nudge to glance at a particular billboard as you drive by. On the billboard, you notice an advertisement containing his name and the date 4/26 (your anniversary date).

In cases like these, the exact numbers are very significant indeed! Just keep in mind, your husband Mike obviously didn’t cause that billboard to be there (the billboard company installed it). However, Mike knew that billboard contained his name and your wedding anniversary, so he subconsciously caused you to notice it while driving by. It made you think of him and reminded you just how much he loves you. When we see 11:11 on the clock, our loved ones in spirit obviously don’t cause it to be 11:11. Whether we notice it or not, that time comes and goes twice a day, every day. Your departed friends and family are not placing these times and numbers in your surroundings, but what they are doing is causing you to notice the digits in the first place.

My wife had her own special experience with numbers on the clock. She used to work as a nurse and one of her favorite long-term patients passed away. His name was Poncho and his birthday was March 17th (3/17). A few weeks after his death, my wife had an extremely vivid and realistic dream of Poncho. He looked happy, healthy, and was no longer confined to a wheelchair. He hugged my wife and essentially thanked her for taking such good care of him. My wife woke up from the dream with tears in her eyes, and when she glanced at the clock on our nightstand, it was exactly 3:17 AM. My wife smiled, knowing with all her heart that Poncho was safe and sound in Heaven.

If you’re looking for your own numerical sign from Heaven, keep your eyes peeled. Whether you’re in Omaha, Kansas City, or Kazakhstan, there are surely signs, billboards, clocks, bumper stickers, license plates, and a wide assortment of other numerical tools your departed friends and family can use to grab your attention. The good news is, you don’t have to be overly psychic or intuitive to be on the receiving end of this phenomenon. Sometimes, a willingness to pay attention is all it takes. As I’m now concluding writing this blog, I just glanced down at the clock on my computer and noticed it’s 11:11 AM. I bet my dad and grandma are winking at me from Heaven right about now.

The complete story of my wife and her dream of Poncho was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses (it’s a great read if you’re in the nursing field). To suggest ideas or topics for my future blogs, please contact me at or find me on Facebook under “Psychic Medium Andy Myers”.
