When numbers repeat there may be more significance than you imagine. Numbers are more than mathematical playthings - they have meanings outside of grade school math class.
And when we see certain numbers over and over again it may be a sign the universe is trying to tell you something. Numbers are an integral part of astrology and numerology as it appears there is more to their mysticism than meets the eye.
Take Emma's experience for example: "One day I was driving to work and noticed it was 9:11 am. No biggie right? Well as I was looking down at the song playing in my CD player, (yes I still have a CD player) it was song number 9 of 11. Coincidence?
Maybe, but I seem to see that number everywhere I go. Maybe it's just because I am more attuned to it because I notice it more often. But maybe there is another explanation.
Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something. I just don't know what it is."
If you too have noticed certain number combinations repeating themselves throughout your life you probably won't find this as odd as someone who hasn't experienced this for themselves.
If you search online for answers they all spout the same thing - seeing numbers on clocks, license plates, blah blah blah like you'd see numbers many other places right?
Well, when I first started noticing repeating numbers for myself (also called manifestation numbers or angel numbers) I did some digging just as you are right now.
What I found out isn't shocking or magical or you tuning into the supernatural or a frequency of the universe. It's simply your reticular activating system. What in the world is that? Well, the RAS also called the extrathalamic control modulatory system, is a bundle of connected nuclei in your brain.
It's responsible for regulating your sleep states specifically sleep-wake transitions, and motor control.
It's also the gateway to your conscious awareness.
That last part is the key to seeing repeating numbers. You see, when you notice something it comes to the conscious level. Before you were seeing these numbers and they were stored at a subconscious level ie.. you weren't aware of them.
Once you notice them for the first time you start seeing them everywhere. It's like when you start researching the purchase of a new car. before you did so you probably saw that same type of car quite often, but it didn't register. Once you started researching it you started seeing it everywhere didn't you?
That's the reticular activating system at work. It's now in your conscious awareness.
And that's why you are suddenly noticing these number patterns.
