Do you ever spot the same number over and over again? Perhaps you always pick up your phone at 2.22pm, or always spot £7.77 on your receipts.
Many people would simply consider these patterns a coincidence. But for other people, these repeated numbers are considered to be “angel numbers”.
You may have heard social media users speaking about angel numbers in recent months – the #AngelNumbers hashtag on TikTok has hundreds of million views, while searches for the term have increased steadily over the last two years.
As an increasing number of people are discovering numerology, we look into what angel numbers really are.
What are angel numbers?
In numerology – a belief that numbers carry certain meanings – angel numbers are often considered to be a set of repeating numbers, such as 111 or 222, that some people believe carry a special significance.
It is thought that when you see these numbers, it’s an angel sending you a sign, and the message is related to the number.
When someone sees an angel number, it can be a sign to focus on an area of their life, or it can be a positive sign that they are on the right track.
These numbers can be spotted anywhere – on a license plate, ticket, or clock, for example.
For people who believe in angel numbers, every number has its own meaning. Find out what they are below.
What do they mean?
Although any number can be an angel number, repeated sequences, especially three numbers in a row, are thought of as particularly important and carry certain meanings.
