Why Do We Make 11:11 Wish?
There’s a lot of speculation around the 11:11 wish factor. For most, it’s a fun moment of time we spend feeling nostalgic from our days of throwing coins into fountains and believing in magic. For others, it’s just a habit and something they’ve always done. For a select few who know the meaning behind 11:11, it’s a small window of opportunity based on numerology and ancient wisdom.
No matter which category you fall into, it’s still interesting to learn some of the History of 11:11. It’s important to note there are many different theories surrounding the divinity and significance of the number 11. Today, we’ll take a look at the Numerology, Synchronicity, and even Psychological reasons behind our society placing significance on 11:11.
11:11 is significant for numerologists and spiritualists alike. Most notably, 11 is considered a Master number, which means out of all the numbers in the Universe, it’s one of the three most powerful. The other two Master numbers are 22 and 33. When you’re looking at 11:11 on the clock, you’re actually viewing the Master number 11 and the Master number 22 at the same time. Think… (11 + 11 = 22!)
For numerologists, the number 11 signifies intuition and insight; the number 22 is known for growth and productivity. Each is on an ample, massive scale. Intuition and Action – the perfect mix to make any wish come true!
It’s interesting to note that the Bible holds the number 11 to be seen as chaos, disorder, and lawless. Some see this as negative and others hold deeper meaning to the 11:11 time stamp as a balance between good and evil.
Others argue that the Bible’s numerology is only saying the same thing in a bit more of a dramatic, creatively written perspective. Basic Numerology holds 11 as being all about intuition. Intuition goes beyond laws, orders, and organization. It’s raw, and it has its own power no matter what laws are in place.
Synchronicity & Psychology

While they say it’s not a magic moment for manifestation, it can still rely as a positive marker and is connected to an inner psychic awareness when repeatedly noticed.

He coined the term “Synchronicity,” and agrees that “Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.”
