The Truth About Angel Numbers

If you ever see the same numbers on repeat, it could be your angel numbers. "Your angels often communicate messages to you by showing you sequences of numbers," Doreen Virtue explained in her book Angel Numbers (via Beliefnet). She continued, "They do this in two ways. First, they subtly whisper in your ear so you'll look up in time to notice the clock's time or a phone number on a billboard." The second way "is by physically arranging for, say, a car to drive in front of you that has a specific license plate number they want you to see." In other words, angel numbers are said to be representative of a message from your guardian angels. Your angels are there to guide the way, assisting you on your journey through life and helping you face the good and the bad.

What do angel numbers mean?

According to Virtue, each angel number sequence means something different. 111 indicates that you should be focusing all your thoughts on your wants, while 222 is all about being persistent. 333 is a message from the "Angel Masters" who are nearby and a reminder that you have their support. 444, on the other hand, means the "Angel Masters" are with you. 555 is usually a sign that major change is on the way.

If you keep seeing 666, the angels are telling you that you need to refocus and find your balance. 777 is all about positivity — the angels are literally giving you a pat on the back. 888 usually means a chapter of your life is coming to the end, while 999 means completion and 000 "is a sign that a situation has gone full circle."

There are various other notable number sequences that are also believed to be messages from your angels, like 808, which reminds you to serve humanity. These numbers hold powerful meanings to believers, and according to Virtue, all you need to do to receive them is ask for your angels to be there. Simple, right?
