When I was a teenager, I would always see my friends tweeting 11:11 wishes every other day and so. I never really figured out the reason behind it, but I joined the bandwagon anyway. So yes, I would patiently wait for the clock to strike the same number, eleven eleven, and chant my wish away. Growing up, I stopped doing it because I suddenly forgot such a gesture existed. But later on, I began questioning its origin, such as the reason why we make wishes on 11:11 and how it started.
There are various theories surrounding divinity and the factor of luck associated with the numbers 11 and 1111. Spiritually, the number 1111 carries great energy. Number 1 symbolizes a new beginning, creativity, and inspiration. Number 11 is also considered a powerful spirit number as well as the number 111, which is related to positive minds and spiritual awareness. If combined, 1111 is an ultimate wake-up call and a sign that you are stepping into a new chapter in your life because it suggests that your prayers will be answered and your aspirations will be achieved.
In addition, repeated numbers like 1111 are known as miracle numbers or master numbers, which is a number that is repeated two or three times in one sequence. Some also believe that 1111 is an angel number. It signifies the time when an angel is near you and trying to communicate with you. In regards, numerologists believe that November 11th is the luckiest day of the year (day 11 in month 11) because of its full potential for wish-granting, especially when it is done on 11:11.
However, there is a rule in practicing the 11:11 wishes. It is speculated that 11:11 wishes are only valid if we coincidentally come across that time. In other words, if you are keeping track of the time and patiently expect the clock to turn 11:11, the wishes won't work! Another important condition to underline is that you can't share your wishes with anyone. So for those who post their exact desire on social media, say goodbye to that!
While many people have believed wishes done on 11:11 get manifested quickly, do you think there's a truth in that?
