If you’ve found yourself seeing repeating numbers recently, let it be known that this is no coincidence. In fact, it’s certainly a sign that the Universe is trying to communicate something to you.

But before we get into that, we must first understand how to interpret repeating numbers through the ancient art and science of numerology.

Numerology holds a firm belief that numbers are the fundamental blocks of the entire universe. By determining their meaning, a person can understand their purpose, desires, and even personality.

For a numerologist, coincidences do not exist. Just as mathematics is precise in calculating our world today, so does numerology in determining the course of our fate.

Some people may be intimidated by it because of the presence of numbers. You don’t have to! Arm yourself with a pen, paper, and discernment, and you’re ready for Crash Course: Numerology of Seeing Repeating Numbers!

Why do I keep seeing repeating numbers?

Repeating numbers are those that have the same digits in succession. Classic examples of this are 111, 222, and 333.

Numerology master numbers

In numerology, they are called master numbers. Some even call it angel numbers. Numerologists believe that whenever a number repeats itself, the universe is trying to tell you something.

These numbers can manifest themselves through anything. It may be through car license plates, house numbers, even an internet post! This is because your spirit guides are manipulating what you see.

The repeating numbers’ meaning can differ depending on the number. Most of the time, though, it tries to make you aware that something is changing.

The change can either be through other people or things. Sometimes, it may even tell you that you need to change something about yourself.

Seeing repeating numbers are known to heighten the power or vibration of the root digit. It intensifies the message and the outcome of that message as well. You can expect that the thing the numbers are telling you about is significant, maybe even life-changing!

Do not be afraid when you see these numbers. When you are aware of their presence and message, you will be able to prepare yourself, as well as act accordingly.

Final Word

Like most things dabbling in the mystical, seeing repeating numbers is the universe’s way telling you to take control of your destiny.

It may guide you in what to do next, especially when you are at a loss of available options. Perhaps you wanted to find a sort of wisdom in your current situation.

Either way, it is not there to force you to do its bidding. Instead, what it tells you is to consider your circumstances and find meaning in the things that seem to happen to you for no reason.

There is no guarantee that if you follow the advice here, your life will immediately change for the better. The thing about change is that you won’t even feel it until so much has changed and you can’t help but notice it.

Indeed, numbers may be central to the idea of our existence in the universe, but no one else has the power to make things happen, but us alone.
