Why You Keep Seeing Double Numbers

Seeing double numbers is a sign that your spirit guides, or angel guides are trying to communicate with you. The different types of spirit guides are discussed in more detail in our post dedicated to the topic. Double numbers are also special in numerology and have special meanings that can be interpreted to mean good things are coming to you soon and in this post we’ll uncover the different meanings of various double numbers.

For many people, especially in the beginning of their spiritual journey, the ability to communicate with spirit or spirit guides is not possible. Spirit can’t talk to you because spirit isn’t physical and does not have a voice. And until you’re spiritually awake and open to hearing from them through thoughts or intuitions, then your spirit guides might well use numbers to show you things.

Double Numbers Are Master (or Angel) Numbers

When we talk about double numbers we’re thinking of numbers such as 11, 22, 33 etc. But there are other double numbers that crop up a lot too – often revolving around times or dates. So for example you might find yourself waking up at a particular time every morning and when you look at the clock it’s display something like 03:03. Seeing double numbers like this also counts as Angel or Master numbers.

Double numbers are also known as master numbers or angel numbers and they’re particularly important in numerology terms because of the fact that the numbers repeat. It’s this repetition that gives the numbers significance because we see random numbers around us all the time. Although all numbers have meaning in certain contexts (such as working out your Life Path Number or your Expression Number using numerology) it’s really only the double numbers that are signals that something wants to communicate with you.

You may see double number patterns such as 11:11, 10:10 or 44:44 at various times. Whether you see 11:11, 2222, or 5555, seeing double numbers or angel numbers means it is time to pay attention to your soul, mind and body and start listening to your spirit giudes.

Remember that they are no accidents or coincidences in the universe so don’t ignore them because there is certainly spiritual meaning of double numbers. The seeing of double numbers in this way is a synchronicity that the universe or your guides is sending you, so pay attention.

Where You Might Be Seeing These Double Numbers

These double numbers can show themselves in any places like on car registration plates, tickets, books, birthdates, clocks or addresses. If you’re being shown double numbers by your spirit guides it’s fairly likely that you’ll find yourself being shown them all over the place. You probably won’t need to look for them, they’ll be in your face. Indeed that may even be why you’re here right now – you’ve probably been seeing double numbers every hour for the past few days and wondering what on earth it means!

Numbers are the language of the universe, and the universe speaks to us through codes. The more we learn to listen, the more we are empowered to fulfill our destiny and achieve the deep joy we deserve. 

Jesse Kalsi, author of All About Numbers: Attract Luck, Abundance, and Joy Based on Your Numbers

Seeing double or repeated numbers is a type of spiritual awakening. They indicate that you’re evolving to a new spiritual level and are becoming aware that there is more to the universe and you than meets the eye.

Constantly Seeing Double Numbers on the Clock

We mentioned various places you might see double numbers in the section above, but one of the strongest places you’ll be likely to see double numbers that have meaning is on the clock. Clocks provide one of the strongest ways for double numbers meaning to be shown to you. You may have found yourself waking up in the middle of the night at oddly specific times, with the clock showing the double numbers. Or you’ll be at work, or on the bus, or doing something completely random and decide to look at the clock and there they are again. You’ve no idea why you looked at the clock, or your watch, at that particular time of day but you remember doing exactly the same thing yesterday and a couple of days before that too.

This is remarkably common but most people just ignore it. It’s a sign to wake up and listen to your guides. They want your attention and the clock is one of the strongest ways they can do that. That’s because on some level you’re recognizing that they can communicate with you and can provide you with thoughts through your subconscious. Clocks are a predictable way your guides can reach out to you, so long as you’re listening.

What Is The Spiritual Meaning of Seeing Double Numbers 1010 or 0101

0101 or 1010 angel numbers are considered as very powerful numbers in numerology. The 1010 angel number is a sign that you are in a higher spiritual vibration. It may also indicate that you have a unique and special gift for the world. Sometimes double number 1010 show that that you have lot of patience and perseverance. You may not even realize this yet, and it probably sounds daunting at first – so seeing these angel numbers can be a sign that you need to believe in yourself more and open yourself up to listening to your guides more.

Breaking this down according to numerology we can see that the 1010 master number consists of the numbers 1 and 0. Although 0 isn’t a number, in numerology terms it certainly doesn’t mean nothing.

  • 1 – stands for positivity, originality and self-assertiveness. 
  • 0 – Stands for truth and purity. 

When you combine these two together you get meanings such as: 

  • Spiritual development – as we mentioned earlier in this section, you may not realize you posess the qualities but by developing yourself spiritually you will soon find out you do.
  • New possibilities – of course, if you’re undertaking a spiritual awakening and developing yourself spiritually then the possibilities are endless.
  • Expansion – of the mind, body and soul.

The purpose of your spirit guides showing you double numbers 1010 is to tell you that it is time to grow, move on and make positive changes.  

So if you have been coming in contact with this double number 1010 you need to look forward to positive changes, personal growth at all levels as well as exploring new possibilities that come your way.  Grow in positivity and self-assertiveness as you develop your spirituality – which will show you the truth and purity of the energy that makes up you, your guides and indeed the whole universe.

Double Numbers 11 or 111 or 1111

Seeing 11, 111 or 1111 means that you’ll be given the opportunity shortly for a new start. What this entails will be quite specific to you because only you are having your experiences right now, no-one else is. Only you will know what you need that new start in – it’s not likely you need a whole new start in life for example. But there may be some aspect of your life from which you need a new start.

Remember from the section above that the number 1 means positivity, originality and self-assertiveness. So if your spirit guides are regularly showing you the number 11 or its various forms then you can be sure that you can take on this new start with that positive attitude and self assertiveness. And when you’re given the new start make sure that rather than repeating old ways, you approach this with something new and original. The old ways weren’t working – if they were you wouldn’t be needing a new start, so look for an original approach to whatever it is and this time you’ll be successful.

It’s quite possible that this new start is actually a new phase of your life where you pay more attention to your spirituality, especially if you haven’t done so before. Developing your spirituality will help you to realize that you, your guides and the universe are all 1 and work together for your benefit and everyone around you.

If you’re not sure what it is that you need to change, now is the time to ask your spirit guides for some help. You can do this by reaching out to communicate with your spirit guides either through meditation or perhaps prayer if that’s what you prefer. Asking your guides can help you to see new ways of doing things and new approaches. Don’t be afraid to ask them.

Double Angel Numbers 22, 222, 2222

In numerology, numbers get broken down into single digits by adding each single number in the pattern together to create a new number which, if that is multiple digits then gets added again until only a single number remains. The number 22 though is a master number, which does not get broken down any further – similarly to 11 and 33 which are also considered master numbers.

22 is a strong number, and as such so is 222 and 2222. 2 shows us the duality of the universe – where we can be both human in the 3D world and at the same time we are spirit, operating in the spirit world too. Most of us have forgotten this and so seeing double numbers 22, 222 or 2222 can be a reminder of this. But seeing these particular numbers means more than just a reminder, it’s showing you that you’re on the right path. You’re beginning to find the right balance between your human 3D life and your spirituality so keep on doing what you’re doing.

2 is also a partnership number – similarly to being in partnership with your guides and the universe, this repeating Angel number can be a sign that you’re with the right physical partner too. It can be a guidance that you and your partner are connected at a deeper level, such as a soulmate. If you currently don’t have a partner, it may be an indication that one is on the way that will contribute as much to your life as you will to theirs.

All in all, if you’re regularly seeing 22, 222 or 2222 then you’re on the right path and the right partnerships are either already with you, or will be very soon.

Noticing Double Numbers 33, 333 or 3333

meaning of double numbers 33

As we mentioned in the section about 22, the number 33 is a special number in numerology called a Master number. This is a number that when derived from other numbers does not get broken down any further. For example, if it were not a master number then the next step in the numerology calculation would be to add 3 and 3 together to get 6. 6 is not a master number, but 33 is, so we don’t add the digits together.

The angel number 33, or 333 or 3333 is a sign from spirit that you are creative, even if you don’t know it. The Christian Bible teaches that God is a trinity and that God is the ultimate creator of the universe. We can see therefore that the number 3 is a creative number. Your guides showing you the number 3 in this way indicates that you too are a creative being and can create your own destiny.

Other people may try to discourage you both now and in the future. As they do, you may start to see the numbers 33, 333 and 3333 coming even more to remind you that you are capable of making your dreams come true. The numbers might look like they’re appearing coincidentally – but we know they’re not.

If you’re being discouraged you may need to take some action to remind yourself not to give up with your creativity. You can write the number 33 onto some paper and keep it in your wallet – but a better idea is to create a kind of vision board, or an affirmation journal to help keep you focused and remembering.

Seeing Double Numbers 44, 444 or 4444

The number 4 is a sign of stability, like the square every side is equal, every angle is equal. Four represents solid foundations and can be symbolic of the 4 corners of the earth – providing a solid basis for all life here in our physical world.

Historically it was believed there were 4 elements in the universe of earth, air, fire and water. To some extent, although not based in science, there is still some truth to this. We, as humans, live on the earth and come from the earth and go back to it. While we’re here we require air to breathe and are made up of mostly water. Finally, we need fire – or warmth at least – for our survival too.

The number 4 is also significant when we consider the 4 directions, North, East, South and West. The number 4 makes up a solid base of everything we do and provides us with stability in the physical realm.

So, the significance of seeing double numbers 44, 444 and 4444 are a sure sign that your spirit guides are showing you that you’ve built a stable base for your life and that you’ll soon be able to reap the benefits of that – whatever it is. Of course only you will know what that stable base is that you’ve built – but that’s the beauty of angel numbers.

Double Numbers 55, 555 or 5555

5 is a number which signifies growth and opportunity. If you’re being shown 55, 555 or 5555 then it’s a sign from your guides that positive change is happening and growth is coming. This might be in business, or your love life or spiritual growth. Only you can really know what area of your life this change is likely to come into – but you can be sure that something positive is coming.

Seeing double numbers 55 can mean that you’re scared of this growth and opportunity – whether that’s that you’re scared it won’t happen or perhaps scared that actually, it might happen. But remember, that these numbers are shown to you by your spirit guides or angels which is why they’re call angel numbers. Your spirit guides are there to help you and they care about you. Seeing the numbers if your first step to reaching out and letting them help you.

Angel Double Numbers 66, 666 or 6666

The number 666 probably freaks you out, if you’re in a western civilization anyway. It’s often considered to be the devil’s number or the mark of the beast, which is understandable because it’s literally written that way in the Holy Bible in Revelation 13:18.

But seeing 66 or 666 is a sign that you’re living too much in fear. The number instills fear but it shouldn’t because it’s associated with the duality of the universe – it’s symbolic of the body, mind and soul and shows we should concentrate on making sure that we nourish all of these in partnership with our guides. The number 6 is also associated with our guides and angels.

So, if you’re needlessly worrying about things which you have absolutely no control over, then seeing 66, 666 or 6666 can be a signal for you to trust the universe and your guides more. Ask your guides if there’s anything you can do, and accept that the answer may be ‘nothing’. If the answer is nothing, it’s time to let it go.

Spiritual Meaning of Seeing 77, 777 or 7777 Double Numbers

The number 7 is considered to be one of the most spiritual of numbers. Many cultures around the world believe that the number 7 is lucky. Because the number 7 is the most spiritual number, seeing this in double, treble or quadruple format is symbolic of you beginning, or accelerating your spiritual pathway. You may be a strong clairvoyant or clairaudient in the making – you may not even realise it yet but seeing the 7’s in this way often indicates the beginning of the process.

Seeing 7’s is showing you that your angels are here to protect you and guide you towards your spiritual transcendence. In so doing, they’re helping you to help others with new skills and new abilities. Embrace your sensitivity and know that your guides are here to help you overcome any struggles that your empathic nature might cause.

Double Angel Numbers 88, 888 or 8888

8. When you flip it on its side, it is the symbol for infinity – which is the universe and life and all within and without. It is spirit, it is unlimited energy. Being shown the number 8 repeatedly is a sure sign that you will have abundance of whatever it is you need to do whatever it is you need to do. It may not seem like it, but that may be because you’ve not yet reached alignment with what you need to do. Don’t confuse what you want to do with what you need to.

Having said that, seeing 8 like this does also give you some room in your life for abundances elsewhere so use this as a sign that if you want to attract things into your life then now is the time – there’s never been a better time. If you want to manifest good things into your life, this number is showing you that with practice you can do it.

You’ll need to be clear about your intentions – lack of clarity will mean you manifest things that aren’t quite what you want. Or not at all what you want. So work out what your ultimate life is and find some way to picture it regularly. And make sure you don’t let fear, anxiety or negative thoughts ruin it for you.

Seeing 99, 999 or 9999

Seeing 99, or 999 or 9999 is a signal from your guides that you might need to stop for a moment and take stock of everything that’s going on around you. Perhaps you don’t enjoy your job anymore, or perhaps you feel that you want to emigrate somewhere else and ‘leave it all behind’. This is because the number 9 signifies the end of one era and the beginning of another – and if it’s being shown to you then it can mean you should check whether you’re doing the right things.

Don’t forget though that you can ask your guides for help here. They’re showing the signs that you need to think about things such as where you life is heading and that a new cycle might be beginning which means they’re aware of these things and may have some ideas about how to move forward. If you keep moving forward and asking for guidance, everything will work out for the best.


In this post we looked at the spiritual meaning of seeing double numbers and decided that these double angel numbers are an important way in which your guides may try to communicate with you. This is especially true if you’re not actively listening to your guides lately and they’re trying to get your attention.

We discovered that the double numbers meaning changes depending on which numbers we’re seeing and how we might see them. We looked at various methods your guides might use to show these numbers to you and we noted that clocks are a very common example of how your guides might do this because clocks are predictable and abundant.

We then went on to give some meanings of the various common double numbers that your spirit guides might show you – although you must of course use your own intuition in combination with the common meanings of these numbers to arrive at what they mean for you specifically.
