I glanced at the number again on the clock: 11:11 AM. A goosebump your spine. Deep down you intuitively feel that this number has some kind of huge significance… but you don’t know what.
If you see 11 11 and other frequent numbers like 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 1010, 1212, 777, etc., pay attention! There is an important reason why you see these numbers so often: These numbers are wake-up calls from your soul and the universe.
The Secret Meaning of Numbers
The ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras was the first to promote the idea that all numbers have different vibrational properties. Since then, modern science and mathematics have shown that the world corresponds to precise geometric mathematical principles. These principles govern everything from gravity to the movements of animals and the habits of mankind.
Thanks to the discoveries of Pythagoras around the world, the ancient system of numerology was developed. Some scholars believe numerology predates Pythagoras and derives from the ancient Hebrew mystical Kabbalah, thousands of years old.
Numerology is a divination system that gives different numbers unique meanings based on mathematical principles. According to numerology, everything like dates of birth, names, and places can be calculated to reveal the deeper hidden truths.
