Carl Jung coined the term synchronicity for the “simultaneous occurrence of two meaningful but not causally connected events” creating a significant realm of philosophical exploration. This attempt at finding patterns within a world where coincidence does not exist possibly involves apophenia if a person’s perspective attributes their own causation to a series of events. “Synchronicity therefore means the simultaneous occurrence of a certain psychic state with one or more external events which appear as meaningful parallels to a momentary subjective state”. (C. Jung, 1960)

The following, is a collaboration of my own thoughts and revelations following a question asked by a good friend of mine, concerning the significance of the number sequence of 11:11 ~ the universal symbol for synchronicity, and why for example, that number sequence is more significant than say 22:22 ~~~ the events following led me down a whirlwind tunnel of new ideas and formulated thoughts on numerology far more complex than I could hope to describe at this point in time.

I’ll start off by giving a little background history of my own experience with number sequences and synchronicity on DIGITAL clocks ~

Back in 2008, living away from home for the first time at college, I started to notice a pattern… every day when I looked at my clock it would read ~ 9:11 ~ I saw this sequence once or twice a day for like 2 weeks straight, after the first 4-5 days or something, I started thinking something was up; I’d never recognized a pattern in clocks before (and by pattern I mean repetition – what repeated was once or twice everyday I would have this strange feeling accompanied by a very deep revelatory thought pattern which I would consider to be Sacred, as opposed to the experience of everyday Profane moments ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred-profane_dichotomy ~ . At the same moment I would instinctively – seemingly for no reason glance at the clock to find it reading 9:11). Also each consecutive time I saw this I would be reminded more and more of the events of September 11th of course because at that point in 2008 the numbers 9/11 had been drilled into my head to be associated with those events.

At the end of these 2 weeks, I was convinced that this was no coincidence and that something was going on, I had no idea what, but it was no longer possible for me to continue believing it was coincidence, because I knew it in my heart not to be.

Shortly after this shift in perception from doubt to confidence, the sequence that I saw everyday once or twice a day at synchronistic moments suddenly changed to read ~ 11:11 ~

Now this also befuddled me… why would this sequence suddenly change from one to another, and with such precision… to go from pretty much only seeing 9:11 on a digital clock, to pretty much only seeing 11:11 (when I say pretty much only – I mean there were times when I’d look at the clock, for example, to make sure that I’d get to class on time, when I wasn’t thinking about anything other than this physical reality and what I have to do with my body today, and the clock would just read whatever the time is… I’d see it and it would be just as benign as any other time you’d check the clock and it reads 2:35 or something. But more often than not it would be one of these sequences, and so I never found any real reason to dismiss the synchronicity as coincidence because the numbers were always accompanied by a very significant moment to me – this significance I must point out is very personal in my opinion; The sequences that people see along with their meanings, are completely subjective to the observer, however I do believe there is something objective/universal that is taking place as well, which I will ATTEMPT to describe in this paper.)

In my experience, I believe a transformation was taking place inside me~ a transformation in the way I viewed the world around me, accompanied by the appearance of patterns ~ repetitions in numbers. These number sequences, for me ~ went from 9:11, which I saw as just the number which was most likely to get my attention if I saw it a whole bunch (keep in mind that for the past 7 years at this point, many people were focusing their thoughts and attention on the numbers 9/11 ~ being a very traumatic event for the people in this country, and even around the world, while at the same time the 9/11 Truth movement was gaining momentum, of which I was unaware at the time), to 11:11 ~ a very grounded number. As 1 is the first whole integer so to speak, perhaps it was marking the moment of transformation, signaling a new beginning in my life. 1 also is the only integer, on an American digital clock, to fill all digit places with the same number; an American digital clock never shows 22:22 unless you recalibrate it… so within the sequence of 11:11 itself there is repetition, there is pattern at its most fundamental form.

After about a month the sequences started evolving.. so to speak… I began to see 1:11 frequently as well (at synchronistic moments), then shortly after that, I began to see other sequences… 5:11, 4:11, etc… then months later it progressed into all sorts of double and triple numbers, like 4:44, 3:33, 2:22, 1:22, 1:44, 1:10, 11:33, etc… today these sequences come to me in far more various forms than when this phenomenon fist began, and sometimes, when I’m having a deep thought, or undergoing some sort of transformation, I can predict, that if I look at the clock, it will read a sequence such as 11:11 or some other whole number multiple of 11. I’ve done this many times, on my own of course; it is my own experience and there are few ways to really share or express such an event.

It’s important to note, that the frequency of these “synchronistic events” is and has been since this whole thing started, totally dependent on my mental state at the time; if there is a transformation taking place within me, or if I am living in the present moment, I see more number sequences.

“Energy flows where attention goes”… Once you become aware of your own energies and you follow the cycle, you will be living in the present moment, in the Here and Now, and you will start experiencing increasing synchronicities (meaningful events miscalled “pure coincidences”) in your life.

The reason I believe these sequences have real meaning cannot truly be explained here, although I will mention at one point I went on the internet to search for something… I can’t remember what I searched… number sequences synchronicity? 11:11 on clocks? 11:11 meaning? 11:11 phenomenon? ~ Something to that extent; only to my large surprise did I find out that this is a phenomenon that takes place all over the globe, and that I wasn’t the only one experiencing it (FWEW! I’m not crazy!) 🙂

Here’s a good example of someone else who experiences the same phenomenon: http://www.urigeller.com/articles/11.htm

Out of all the synchronicities I have ever experienced, there is one that stands out above all others, in which I will forever hold my faith in synchronicity. About 2-3 years ago, after learning more about 11:11 via my own experiences, as well as through internet searches and posting about synchronicity, etc… something grabbed my attention on the side of my ‘newsfeed’ in the ads section of Facebook. I’m sure we’re all accustomed by now to the way Facebook tracks our activity and feeds us marketing ads that are more relevant to our interests. What grabbed my attention was an advertisement for an 11:11 medallion created by artist Doug D’souza. This, of course, was no coincidence.

Handcrafted in fine pewter, this unique medallion is dedicated to those on the path of enlightenment accessed through the portal of 11:11. Each design has a significant meaning starting first with the cord as it loops through the Infinity symbol. The entrance is marked with an eleven on each side and sets the tone as the door swings open to reveal the awakening One being showered by rays of light while resting in lotus. The hands of the clock are stopped at the exact moment when source is speaking to those who listen. The dove flutters above representing truth and hope. The universal signs of Peace, Yin-Yang and Love are placed symbolically to remind you of your commitment to peace, balance, harmony and love. When you wear the medallion know that it has been divinely inspired, created and imbued with the healing energy of global awakening consciousness.

At first I thought to myself, “this guy is just trying to make money off peoples’ fascination with 11:11.” I did not want to purchase it. However, after reading this passage about the medallion and thinking about it for a while, I kind of decided that I had to buy it. After all, at the time I had been looking for a new necklace that suited my personality. It didn’t matter to me if I was ‘wasting’ $35 on a necklace that clearly couldn’t do anything for me other than be a nice piece of jewelry because I decided it would be a reminder of the breathtaking experience of synchronicity I had been immersed in for the past few years and sure enough for the years to come. I also maybe thought to myself that this artist deserved a little credit for his honest work. I saw it as honest, even if he was just doing it for the money, because of the great importance and significance of synchronicity in my life and others’ lives. So I ordered it. A few weeks later it came in the mail and I put it on, to (for the most part) never be taken off.

Maybe a few months after this I met the woman of my dreams. Well, we had met previously in passing, but never did we have the chance to spend any time with each other. After hanging out together just a couple of times, this woman seemed absolutely perfect to me… it was as if our minds were hardwired to think the same way and to complement each others’ train of thought – conversation came so easily to us. When we first acknowledged our feelings for each other openly, I was completely astonished to what unfolded next. On the night of our first kiss, perhaps before we even kissed… we were sitting in my car when we realized a truly compelling synchronicity – and this time, it dealt with the very thing I acquired to symbolize my faith in synchronicity.

She showed me her tattoos behind her left and right ears… behind the right ear – a yin yang symbol, behind the left – a peace symbol. Facing me, her tattoos lined up perfectly with the orientation of those very symbols on my 11:11 medallion. At about this same time we both noticed a bright light in front of us that came out of no where. It got very bright for a moment, and then disappeared with a flash. How peculiar that we would both witness a UFO at this very moment! We were truly ecstatic!

Now if that’s not a compelling example of synchronicity, and proof that I experience it, and that it is very real ~ then I don’t know what is…

Being an experiencer of this phenomenon myself for the past 4-5 years, I’m going to tell you why I think 11:11 is a more significant number than say 22:22…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Numbers are symbols, and they carry meaning ~ as humans, we created numbers to help us make sense of the world around us, and we gave them theoretical meaning so as to make the numbers themselves sensible. So again, I will attempt to do just that.

If we think of numbers as place holders for dimensions / fractions of the greater picture (excuse me if I make any scientific mistakes here, this is just to portray a message), we can imagine the number (1) might be used to describe a neutron, (2) to describe the interplay of protons and electrons, (3) is these first 2 elements combined, creating an atom, (4) several atoms combined into a molecule, (5) the formation of molecules into a cellular structure or organelle, (6) a group of organelles making up a cell (the most basic functional unit of life), (7) a group of cells making up a tissue, (8) a group of tissues making up an organ, (9) a group of organs making up organ systems, which combined make up a whole organism (10)… If we pay close attention to this example, we can see that there are cycles within cycles and there seems to be a particular significance to the number (3).

If you hadn’t noticed already, what determines the organizational structure or value of a certain number place holder, is the sum or product of 2 or more of whatever the previous number’s assigned value was (which includes everything else below it), with the exception of numbers (1-2). This is very similar to the Fibonacci Sequence, such that, when writing out the Fibonacci sequence you must first begin with 2 numbers, 0 & 1, and at that point you now have 2 different concepts to combine into the next number. It’s like a feedback loop, the output from 1 calculation is fed back into the input of the next.

(0+1)=1 —> 1+1=2 —> 2+1=3 —> 3+2=5 —> 5+3=8 —> 8+5=13

0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 etc….

Only when we reach the 3rd number of the sequence does addition actually take place, again signifying the importance of the number 3.

In my example, I actually used the Atom as the basis of my number scale. As you can see in my model the Atom is represented by the number 3. But an atom is a whole thing, isn’t it? Why didn’t I attribute it to the value of 1? It is because I found the elementary or subatomic components of an Atom particularly interesting, in that they seemed to replicate my own feelings on the energies of the numbers 1 and 2.

For example the number 2 in my eyes represents doubling, or halving. What happens when you divide by 2 is you get polarity. If I divide the earth into 2 I have to name them 2 separate things, instead of 1 thing, and so I call them north and south. But somehow North and South are connected, as they were before I divided it into 2. So it is polarity/magnetism of opposites that binds them together. This to me was a spitting image representation of the interplay of protons and electrons.

The number 1 in this case, if I put the 2 back together ~ if I combine the protons (+charge) and electrons (-charge) I end up with a neutral, or non-polar charge. The neutron is the non-polar component or nucleus of an atom. In this case I’m not referring to any element in particular, because some have more +charge than -charge or vice versa, instead I am simply referring to the concept of an atom, and the concept of protons and electrons as if they aren’t real “things” but instead place holders to represent + and – charges. Although I would bet on it that if you combine all elements’ charges together in their original state you would get a neutral charge, but that’s probably impossible to test.

So now if we look at it this way, we can deduce, that the number 3 is an elementary form of creation, because every “thing” must be composed of 2 or more “things”. And thus we are presented with the paradox of infinity, the chicken and the egg. Now let me just point out that I believe it would be asinine to assign personal meaning to all numbers up to infinity, not to mention a complete waste of time. In fact, it’s completely unnecessary, and I think the principle of the number 3 proves this.

This is a representation of the fractal nature of the universe, meanings seem to reach a certain peak of complexity before returning to a basic form, although exponentially more complex than the original basic form, indicating a cyclic or even spiral nature. It’s interesting to note that we once believed matter could be reduced to a singular unit in which it could no longer be reduced into further components, in other words, an elementary particle. We once called this particle, an atom. Only today, we have been astonished to find out that not only can an atom be broken down into protons neutrons and electrons, but these subatomic particles can also be broken down into smaller components (up-quarks, down-quarks, leptons, etc.). So maybe there is no “elementary particle” after-all, instead perhaps particles are a function of a wave or energy, as in Wave-Particle Duality. What I’m trying to get at here, is that every “thing” is part of something else entirely that is not even a “thing”.

Let us then, consider the energy, or “vibe” if you will, of each number, instead of some type of formation of particles.

At a fundamental level, the number 1, represents wholeness, non-polarity, the universe could be represented as the number 1, because it encompasses all physical matter as one thing, and not the separate things they appear to be (UNI – VERSE = ONE – SONG) ~ we’ll just say that everything else, for example ALL potential energy/matter (otherwise known as dark energy or dark matter), including manifest energy, is represented by the ‘number’ 0.

To demonstrate this all-encompassing property of the number 1, we need only to realize mathematically, that ANY number is divisible by 1, and any number can be reduced to 1 rationally (ie. 9/9 = 1 & 9/1 = 9). Likewise we can say that any matter is a product of the universe.

The number 2 represents a division, duality, polarity (+ & -), balance, yin and yang, our chamber here in this physical plane, bound to a separate identity in space/time duality and the cycles of life and death.

We can continue down the sequence of numbers assigning logical theoretical-based meaning to all of them, but the meanings become more obscure and abstract, and it becomes increasingly, if not exponentially difficult to place value upon numbers as they increase; not to mention the meanings are completely relative to the amount of detail one is looking for. In order to simplify the process of assigning value to numbers, some sort of pattern must be recognized. Today’s decimal system applies meaning to numbers in a linear fashion, allowing us to count all the way up to infinity. But this clearly is not rational. I believe it is useful no doubt, but when dealing with numerology we are really looking for patterns, which are repetitions, or cycles.

There are also what are called “Master Numbers”. The number 11, consists of TWO ONE’S next to each other… so what we have here is 2 separate symbols which are each whole in themselves ~~ the number 11 is a HIGHER OCTAVE of the number 2 (in music, an octave represents the same tone only at a higher or lower frequency, in multiples of 2) ~~ double numbers are also considered “Master Numbers”, perhaps giving them both the quality of their root numbers with a certain mastery over that dimension, for example, the number 11 (1 + 1 = 2) would then be “Master of Duality” and the number 22 (2 + 2 = 4) could be seen as master of the energy signature of the number 4. When Using this method of reducing double-digit numbers to it’s respective whole integer, we exclude the 0 from the place values as we are only using Whole-1-digit-numbers ~~

~~I want to point out, that at this point in my thought process, something began to become clear to me in relation to numerology. Something I had not thought of previously… in fact I had been looking at numerology in a certain way, excluding the 0, without really realizing why I was doing it… how come I consider “11” to be a higher octave of 2, instead of 1? why is 10 not considered a higher octave of “0”? When I started to look at the math, the reason became more clear to me… the decimal system we use today IMO does not line up with sacred geometry/ancient numerology because 0 is not a “real” number, at least not a rational number in this sense. In order to properly calculate significance of numbers, we must first remove the 0’s from the equation (although the first 0 (and only in my opinion) carries it’s own meaning) and only use so-called “rational numbers”. Since double numbers use a 0 to fill a place value, they must first be reduced to their “root” value (1-9) in order to decipher significant meaning. This thought was so profound to me that I typed “numerology” into google for the first time, to see if I was on to something… sure enough, my ideas were confirmed by none other than the ancient Greek mathematician, Pythagoras, the “Father of Numerology”, who

“developed his theory of numbers based on the idea that everything progressed in predictable cycles and those theories are the basis of all natural law today, as well as providing the foundation for the occult idea of Numerology, though the actual origins of numerology predate Pythagoras such as seen, for example, in the dictums set forth in the ancient Hebrew Kabbalah and in the symbolism of Sacred Geometry. Pythagoras’ idea deals with rational numbers, specifically the integers “1’ through “9”, (the abstract concept of “0” not yet having been postulated).

“Fundamental to this concept is the so-called “reduction of numbers”, which means that one takes any number with two or more digits and reduces it, by adding each of the integers in the number to arrive at a total whose integers are then added again, until a single digit is obtained.

(Example: the number 98 would be calculated as 9 + 8 = 17 and 1 + 7 = 8, with 8 being the primary “Master Number” of the number 98.)”

http://spiritwalkministry.com/numerology

To avoid any confusion, we will refer to the reduced integer as a “Quantum Number” instead of a “Master Number”.

Example:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,

1 (10 ~ 1 + 0 = 1), 2 (11 ~ 1 + 1 = 2), etc…..,

1 (19 ~ 1 + 9 = 10 ~ 1 + 0 = 1), etc….,

1 (28 ~ 2 + 8 = 10 ~ 1 + 0 = 1), 2 (29 ~ 2 + 9 = 11 ~ 1 + 1 = 2), etc….,

1 ( 37 ~ 3 + 7 = 10 ~ 1 + 0 = 2), 2 (38 ~ 3 + 8 = 11 ~ 1 + 1 = 2), 3 (39 ~ 3 + 9 = 12 ~ 1 + 2 = 3)

1 (100 ~ 1 + 0 + 0 = 1)

As you can see if you add up the 2 integers in a double digit number (for ex. 11 ~ 1 + 1 = 2) you are left with the higher octave representation (11) of the “root frequency” (2). This method also creates other patterns in data, for example, the sum of all digits reduced to their rational number, represents the number of reductions which must be made for each 10 digit sector (ie, 110-119) to be represented with 10 integers, it represents the number of symbols (whole numbers) which need to be reduced to their rational integer. For 110’s for example there are only (1 + 1 = 2) numbers which will compute to double digit numbers after the first application (118 and 119), and likewise for the 30’s there are (3 + 0 = 3) numbers which need to be reduced (37, 38, 39) — I see a fractal pattern emerging here… perhaps the Fibonacci Sequence. For example, if we look at each 100 digit sector, we can also determine the amount of number that need to be reduced… but the math gets more complex here as there are now about 90 more possibilities for multiple reduction scenarios.

At this point, you’re probably a bit confused, and I’m having a bit of trouble expressing what I’m trying to say, so I’ve done a bit of web-surfing, to find an explanation which is easier to understand than my psycho-babble. I would usually just provide a link here to read on your own, but I feel like this particular information is important to understand. The following is an excerpt from: http://www.halexandria.org/dward332.htm

Numerology attempts to describe the relative existence of everything in nature, based on the premise that all is reducible to numbers, and that all numbers follow the natural law of mathematical progression. In particular, ratios of numbers become pure entities and take on fundamental importance. This is true of the so-called Transcendental Numbers (p — the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, f — the ratio of sequential entries of Fibonacci Numbers, and e — the base of the natural logarithm, wherein subtraction of logarithms is equivalent to division/ratios of numbers). Even numbers such as integers can be expressed as ratios, e.g. “4” is actually the ratio, “4/1” (or even “8/2”).

A basic axiom is that all things in nature evolve in cycles, mathematical progressions which are measurable and predictable. [And cycles have ratios — as in the year, the time for the Earth to circle the Sun, being given in terms of the cycle of the Earth to rotate once upon its axis, a day.] Cycles are often based on Time, but not necessarily so, as even counting from one to twenty involves a cycle of returning to the use of “1” following the “9”, etc.

Numerology deals primarily with rational numbers, specifically integers. It even goes so far as to limit itself, for the most part, to the 9 symbols, which make up 90% of the base 10 system. Yet, it contains within those 9 symbols a significant amount of information. In fact, together with Astrology and Tarot, Numerology is used as part of the symbolism in interpreting the Tree of Life — one of the more profound philosophical concepts.

A possible exception to the general rule of reducing numbers until a single digit is reached is whenever the total reaches what is called a “Master Number”. The “Master Numbers” are those with double digits, i.e. 11, 22, 33, 44… Supposedly, these Master Numbers have a greater significance, and refer to characteristics beyond mundane experiences. In a manner of speaking, these are the higher octaves, harmonics, of experiences. But they are also sometimes just potentialities, which are never quite attained — after which the single digit number which they add to, becomes the dominant factor.

It is these “Master Numbers” which I want to focus on because they carry some sort of transcendental energy about them.

The number 11, being a higher octave representation of the number 2, whilst using only the number 1, is a representation of (in a relative sense) a transcendence of duality (the belief that I am a separate entity than all that”s around me). The number 11 represents a belief that one is a whole entity in itself individually, but at the same time intimately interconnected with everything else in this universe (transcended duality).

11:11 then to me, is a wake up call to humanity ~ a call for transformation, to break free from the cocoon of an old limiting belief system and to fly away into a new all-encompassing one ~ it is a doorway, perhaps into a new dimension of thought and life, which is being shown to you, and only you can walk through ~ 11:11 encompasses all of synchronicity in this meaning, because isn’t that what synchronicity really is? Realizing you are part of a greater picture, something grander than just yourself? ❤

As per usual, I’ll post here my findings from the Mayan Tzolk’in Calendar for the day in order to portray any other cosmic synchronicities to my findings on this day:

IMIX
Alligator
East

This is the 1st day sign of the uinal. It means "alligator" or "crocodile". It carries a radiant Eastern energy.

Alligator is the initial day sign and often manifests in people as the initiator of new ideas or new projects. The Eastern energy that flows through this sign infuses it with primal creative instincts, forces that gives birth to new phenomena and brilliant new ideas stemming from the deep flow of the collective unconscious.

However, largely because there is no order or structure that comes with these primal messages, following through on their ideas or completing their projects is not the Alligators' forte. This is why it is essential that they collaborate with others in order to achieve tangible results.

Alligators are often deeply caring people with a strong nurturing, protective energy, particularly for their children. They may work hard to provide security and comfort for their families and friends, but they should take care not to become overprotective, territorial or dominating. Otherwise, they may become insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.

KAN
Tone Four

Kan is the number four in the Mayan Sacred Calendar. It represents stability.

Persons born on days with this tone carry a stable, grounded energy that helps set the guidelines for all manner of relationships and interactions, whether on a personal, societal, economic, or other levels. Four is also the number of dimensions in which most of our conscious experiences take place.

Kan is ruled by Tonatiuh, the Aztec god of the sun and the warriors.

XIUHTECUHTLI
God of fire and time

Xiuhtecuhtli is the ruler of the First Day of the Trecena, and the First Day and First Heaven of the Galactic Underworld.

Xiuhtecuhtli is also the Aztec god of fire and time. The energy he embodies is that of initiation, sowing.
