Numbers are Energy

You see, numbers are energy. Our world and the spiritual world are made up of all kinds of energy, vibrating at many different frequencies. Numbers are the foundation of that energy. They are essentially the building blocks of our existence – both physical and spiritual.

We Have Spiritual Guides

Resonating at a high energetic frequency, we have guides in the spiritual realm. These guides are watching over us, providing protection, and guiding us along our life path.

But, as you know, it is not always easy or even possible to hear the guidance of our spiritual counterparts. They are not physical beings, and they do not operate with the same physical rules that we, here on the physical planet, do. Which makes having a conversation, the way we physical beings are used to, quite difficult.

However, there is a way for our spiritual guides to get around this conversation conundrum.

Our spiritual guides, who are beyond the limitations of the physical world, are not restricted by space and time. This means they can easily manipulate the energy that surrounds those of us on the physical plane. They can put things along our paths, such as signs and symbols, as a way to provide us with messages and guidance.

Since numbers are the foundation of energy, one of the easiest ways for our spiritual guides to reach us is by sending messages through numbers. These number messages are in the numbers you see every day, such as those on a clock. Anytime you see a number, it could be a unique message sent to you by the spiritual realm.

Angel Numbers

Most notably, angels are the ones who use numbers to provide us with loving guidance and messages of support.

Usually, our guardian angels, who are by our sides from birth until death, send these messages to help us stay on the right path and achieve our dreams and goals.

Because our angels are known to send messages in the numbers we see every day, these types of messages are called Angel Numbers.

Seeing :11 After the Hour is a Message from Your Angels

When your angels show you the number :11 after the hour, there are several different meanings and messages it can have. So you may have to do some digging to figure out just what they are trying to tell you.

Primarily, when you keep seeing :11 after the hour, it means the angels are trying to get your attention. They may be guiding you in a particular direction, warning you of a problem, or they may be letting you know they are with you. What exactly your message is will take a little work and trust, but by listening to your heart, the answers will come.

One thing is for sure: when you see :11 after the hour a lot, it means you are reaching a new level of spiritual enlightenment.

You may be seeking spiritual enlightenment, or it may, for some reason, just seem to be coming out of nowhere. But if you are frequently seeing the number :11 – and it has sent you on a search for answers – there is no doubt that you are taking the next steps on your spiritual journey and are experiencing a new awakening.

And the angels are sending you a message of support and encouragement as you begin this new journey.

The Energy and Meaning of the Angel Number 11

The number 11 is quite a special number when it comes to both numerology and angel numbers. It carries a very spiritual and powerful energy of faith and taking action in your life. Its corresponding messages are also intense and carry important guidance and advice for following your life path. This is a number the angels want you to take very seriously when they show it to you.

To fully understand the energy and meaning of the angel number 11, you want to start by looking at its parts.

The Angel Number 1

To begin with, the angel number 11 is made up of the number 1 occurring twice. Since the angel number 1 appears twice, the intensity of its energy and corresponding messages are double. Meaning the message is extra important and significant in your life.

The angel number 1 is a focused, individualistic, and head-strong energy of leadership and accomplishment. It is the energy of new beginnings, fresh starts, and the desire to accomplish new goals and dreams. This energy assists us in manifesting our thoughts quickly. So the angel number 1 urges us to keep our thoughts positive and to stay focused on our desires.

The Angel Number 2

Additionally, when you add up the sum of a multi-digit number, you get even more meaning. By finding the sum of 11 (1 + 1 = 2), you get the additional energies of the angel number 2.

The angel number 2 resonates with a very balanced, faithful, compassionate, and helpful energy that focuses on relationships and our duty to serve the greater good. Its energy is about having faith in the spiritual and in ourselves. And resonates deeply with accomplishing our life’s purpose by balancing service to others with service to ourselves.

:11 is A Master Number

But the number 11 isn’t just any number; it is known as a master number. Master numbers are the most powerful numbers that exist. When a master number shows up repeatedly in your life, it means the angels have serious business for you. It means they are calling you to pay attention to something and take necessary action.

Because master numbers are such powerful numbers, having them in your life can either be a blessing or a curse. Master numbers are full of potential blessings and miracles. These numbers can and will assist you in achieving massive feats. However, when you do not heed the messages from a master number, you may potentially end up facing struggles and challenges that make life more difficult.

Seeing :11 After the Hour May Be a Warning

Since it is a powerful master number when you see :11 after the hour, the angels may be trying to let you know that you have a lot of work ahead of you.

Perhaps you are currently headed down the wrong path in life. And that path is resulting in unnecessary struggle and pain, including feeling shy, anxious, stressed, conflicted, scattered, fearful, depressed, and engaging in self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors.

If this is the case for you, the angels are trying to help you. So you really need to pay attention to the messages of the angel number 11 in order to change direction and get yourself on the right path.

Primarily, that means you need to make sure that you are mastering the art of positive thinking. It is not always easy to get out of a pessimistic and negative thinking funk. But if you keep seeing :11 after the hour, you are receiving a very serious call to do what you can to change your thinking and focus on the positive in your life.

The Angel Number 11

Besides being a powerful master number, the angel number 11 is the number that most represents our spiritual sides. It guides us to lean on our faith, use our intuition, and believe with all your heart that anything is possible.

The angel number 11 is not concerned with rationality, logic, or reasoning. It is about letting all that go and emerging yourself in pure faith and love.

It is pulling you toward spiritual awakening and enlightenment. Where you leave the worries, concerns, and fears of the physical world behind you and move forward, knowing there is more to life than what your five senses can pick up on.

The angel number 11 is the most intuitive of all the numbers. It is the energy of turning inward and trusting in yourself and your ability to accomplish anything. It asks you to leave the need to know and the need to have control of your physical life behind. And instead, rely on your intuition and faith to guide you to something so much more.

Whenever you see the angel number 11, the angels are letting you know that you are a very powerful being. Capable of accomplishing incredible feats. And they are guiding you to use your power for the greater good.

We are all connected and as one within the spiritual realm. Striving to discover and accomplish your life’s purpose and achieve your soul’s mission is your contribution to the collective consciousness of everyone and everything on the planet.

God has a bigger plan for you, and the angels are letting you know you are ready to begin accomplishing that plan.

Keep in mind, as you read the possible messages of seeing :11 after the hour, what you think and feel is part of how the angels communicate with you.

Angels and spirit guides do not necessarily speak to you in words. Instead, they will influence your thoughts, create a feeling, make images pop into your mind, or inspire you to act.

Seeing :11 after the hour is only the beginning. It is merely how the angels have gotten your attention. Your personal message and clarity will come from within you.

The Messages of Seeing :11 After the Hour

If you keep seeing :11 after the hour, your angels are sending you love, encouragement, and uplifting advice to help you through a situation or to help you along your life path. The following are possible messages your angels want you to know.

A Spiritual Calling

When you see :11 after the hour, your angels are awakening you to spirit. It is a spiritual calling. They see that you are ready to open your eyes and turn to your spiritual side for answers and guidance.

This is a time to use your intuition and trust in yourself. Who you are is exactly who you are supposed to be. Use your natural skills and talents to propel you forward along your spiritual journey.

Do not rationalize things too much. Rely on faith rather than logic. Now is the time for you to dream and expect greatness from yourself and your life. And you are being called to do so without logic or rationality.

You are a spiritual being, and the spiritual realm is calling you to open your mind and your heart to the possibilities. Turn to spirit and pay attention to the signs around you.

You are more open to spirit and the signs around you right now. You are taking the next steps along your spiritual journey, and your eyes are opening to something more than you have ever known. Keep going, keep having faith, and trust that you are on the right path.

Find Your Purpose

If you keep seeing :11 after the hour, the angels may be telling you to find and pursue your life purpose. Your life purpose is related to helping others and serving the greater good. And the angels want you to focus on it now.

If you have been dreaming of something but have been afraid to try it, this message is letting you know it is safe to start making that dream come true. Use your creativity and imagination to take you into your dreams and manifest the possibilities.

This is not the time for rationality, logic, concern, or fear. This is a time to stay positive and optimistic and a time to use your imagination and creativity. And it is a good time to step out of your comfort zone and try things you never would have before.

Follow your calling to accomplish your life purpose with all your heart. Do so in faith, and know the angels have your back every step of the way.

Have Faith

If you are going through a difficult time, such as experiencing a loss, a change, or recent trauma, seeing :11 after the hour is a message to have faith. You are not alone as you get through this trying time.

There are powers at work beyond what you can see and know. God, your angels, your spirit guides, and many others in the spiritual realm know what you are going through.

They know this time is difficult for you, and you are feeling lost and uncertain. And they are asking you to have faith. Your spiritual team ensures that you will make it through this, and they are asking you to trust, believe, and have faith in your future.

It is not necessarily easy to let go and move forward with only blind faith. Your angels know this, so they send this message to let you know that they are with you, guiding you, and protecting you as you heal and grow from this experience.

Every time you see :11 after the hour, it is your angels reminding you that they are with you and everything is going to work out.

Create and Focus on Clear Goals

The angels are guiding you to create and focus on clear and concrete goals. Whether you are working toward accomplishing your life path or trying to manage your way through a difficult time, focusing on goals will help you get through it.

Seeing :11 after the hour is a call to action. It is encouraging you to take steps toward all your dreams and goals. Be sure to make small goals that you can work on every day and use them as stepping stones to accomplish bigger and better goals in your life.

When seeing :11 after the hour, you are being reminded to focus on your goals and take action to make it happen.

Keep Your Thoughts Positive

You are manifesting what you are thinking about almost instantly. So it is imperative that you keep your thoughts positive.

Additionally, negative thinking is holding you back from achieving your goals. It is making you feel bad about yourself, your life, and what you are capable of. But this negative thinking is not accurate, and it is hurting you. So the angels are calling you to look at things differently: in a much more positive light.

If you continue to see life and your situation through a negative lens, you will begin to engage in self-sabotaging behaviors (if you haven’t already). This can lead to addiction, depression, anxiety, and giving up on yourself. All this does is create a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you expect the worst, that is what you will get. So do what you can to keep your thoughts positive.

Every time you see :11 on the clock, know it is the angels reminding you to check your thoughts, focus on what you are grateful for, and say something positive about yourself and your situation.

You are a Lightworker

If you continue to see :11 on the clock repeatedly for a long period of time, regardless of what you do, it may happen because you are a lightworker. You are meant to be a healer and do the work of God here on earth.

As such, when you see :11 after the hour all the time, it means that you are in tune with spirit, and synchronicities are a common occurrence for you. Don’t be surprised if this continues to happen throughout your entire lifetime.

Therefore, your message is not really a message so much as an indication that you are on the right path. It is a blessing and gratitude from the angels. So keep making the world a better place by following your heart and serving others.

You are Experiencing Depression, Anxiety, or Fear

It is common for those who experience chronic depression and anxiety to see :11 after the hour. You are being called to change the way you see the world around you and yourself within it. You are a spark of divine love, and you deserve so much more than you have been experiencing in life.

It is not that the angels think you can just see a number and change how you think and feel. They know there is much more to depression and anxiety. But they want you to know that you are not alone, so they show you :11 often.

It is a message of hope, love, and encouragement. It is encouragement to do what you need to take care of yourself and find the light within you. Do not worry about what other people think of you or any judgment they may pass on you. This message tells you that you are loved, supported, and protected by all your spiritual guides regardless of what is going on in the physical world.

Follow the other messages the angels send when you see :11 after the hour. They may help you find your way.

Every hour when you look up and see :11 on the clock, it is a reminder that you are loved, valuable, and important. Your angels are lifting you up in spirit and sending healing energy and support.

You are surrounded by angels in protective love and light. No matter where you are or what you are going through, seeing :11 after the hour is your reminder that you are surrounded by spiritual beings that love you.

It is safe to release fear and negativity and to go forward in faith because the angels and other heavenly spiritual beings are watching out for you. They are always with you, always protecting you, and always loving you.

Your Crossed Over Loved One is With You

If you have recently experienced the loss of a loved one, seeing :11 after the hour may be a message from them. Your crossed-over loved one is letting you know that they are okay and are watching over you from the other side.

It is okay to let them and their physical life go as they are still with you and want you to continue with your physical life. Make the most of the rest of your life and continue along your journey, knowing your loved one is never really gone.

When you look up and see :11 on the clock, your loved one is sending you loving support and encouragement.

11 After the Hour Conclusion

In conclusion, if you keep seeing :11 after the hour, the angels are calling you to pay attention to your spiritual side. Your spiritual side and connection to your spiritual guides will help you get through difficult times and will propel you toward achieving extraordinary things. Know your power as a divine spark of God’s love and live according to the purpose our creator has for you.
