Hi there, I was unsure which category I should post this in but I guess it's an experience.

Basically since the start of may this year I have been seeing 111 everywhere, on my phone, on billboards, adverts and my PC and it's starting to really freak me out!

The worst case was when I was telling my mum I keep seeing 111 every where and as I was doing this, the advert for an Amazon Kindle was on TV priced at.. 111 and even my mum was freaked out!

I was just wondering if anyone understands what this means? and can give me some advice as to why this is happening to me.

Many Thanks

Well, if anyone does have an answer I'd like to know too - my school locker in 3 different consecutive schools was 111.  Naturally, I caved into pressure and made my lucky number 3 (or III in Roman Numerals) :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:

Gotta say, it ain't really done any significant besides show up all over the shop for me personally but it still makes me smile (your post being case in point - I Lol'd).:rofl:

Google "i keep seeing the same numbers everywhere". It's nothing mysterious, it's spycologic and it's how the human body react.

Well I myself have been seeing all kinds of triple numbers everywhere ALL THE TIME and even quadruples sometimes. :/ I Googled it myself and most websites that say it's not a coincidence say it's your spirit guide trying to talk to you and they mean different things. I see 333 very often which supposedly means I'm too materialistic. Weird since I don't usually ask for anything material although I do happen to have one thing that I want it's usually only one thing and then I'm happy and don't want anything else once I get it unless I lose it. D:

Others I repeatedly see are 111, 666, and 444 in order from least to greatest. Lol. Typically I see them when I look at the clock but sometimes I see the address of a building on accident and it just happens to be something like 3333 for example. >.>

Since I read that I decided trying to talk to my spirit guide through automatic writing which I think is sort of like using an ouija board I guess but I'm not sure it actually works. I think it's more of an ideomotor effect type of thing going on. :/ What do you guys think? I see it too much to just call it a coincidence, I don't even think about it at all but I see them anyways so it's not like I'm looking for them. I don't add up numbers or anything to try and get a triple number, it just happens. :|

It's not coincidence at all.

It's selective memory.

It doesn't matter if it's one number (9:11, 666, etc) or a series of numbers (111,222, etc). It is your brain putting some meaning to a series of numbers, and you remembering each time you happen to see them because it reminds you about how you remember them. Your brain is seeking this pattern, and reminding you of it. You might pass 10 houses addresses and not pay any mind. But when you happen to pass a house address that is 333, your subconscious takes notice of it from your peripheral view, and causes you to look back and notice it consciously. Really interesting stuff, but studied and documented.

I have the same thing with the numbers 138, from a song of one of my favorite bands The Misfits, "We are 138". I just recognize what's going on whenever I notice the number and get a thrill. It's still very cool, even knowing why I get this feeling.

Google 1111 phenomena...I have had this experience since 1979.  I see the numbers 1111 and tend to look at a clock just when the time goes to 1:11 or 3:11 or variations thereof.  There are some very interesting theories about this phenomenon and many, many people have experienced it.

http://1111spiritguardians.com/

was the first link that popped up.

then I read this babble:

Quote

Our earthly 1,111 Spirit Guardians, often called "Midwayers," have been assisting folks of all walks of life for many centuries. George Barnard, the original human member of the 11:11 Progress Group, has been privileged to call them his family, his coworkers, friends and teachers for almost 60 years. Get an introduction into some of George's experiences in "From the Desk of George Barnard".  

And I immediately lost interest.

You look at the clock all the time.  You don't get excited. If it is 8:43.   But the 11:11 stands out.  Probably you don't do it.  Any more than other numbers.  But it stands out.  That's all.

this is an axample of a confirmation bias a psychological phenomenon, basically you keep seeing the number 111 because you are unconciously looking for it. I am a psych undergrad and entering into grad school soon. the good news is you aren't being haunted and you aren't going crazy it is just a strange little tick in the human psyche.

I have been forwarded here by google search, have read every ones responses with great care and I respect your opinions.
Ok, well I just noticed 01:11 whilst typing this message, and screen shot it for future reference. I can understand all the psychological theoretical expectation as
to why it may be a number that some of us are experiencing as the terminology describes  'unconciously looking for it'  of which in some respect I can understand because its been scientifically proven. So am going to start from my self briefly, whether you believe me or nor that's a different story.  
I am not going to include any screen shots of what I have experienced with the number 111, as some people/sceptics may find it a waste of time/fake or montage. I am not going to draw any conclusions just yet. The more I experience it, the more interesting it gets :S . For now I think I will keep an open mind...

It would be interesting to know more about the individuals  that have been experiencing this, their background, such as religious beliefs, life moments, philosophy and ambitions and so forth..

I have been experiencing this voyage if you like to call it, for over the past few months.

t.c.

Gotta a new Seven 11 opening up locally soon.  They haven't posted their petrol prices yet but the boards are up and ready to go so they have

the 3 prices currently listed as ULP 111.1, DIESEL 222.2, GAS 333.3 :P

Kinda cured of any notion that seeing these numbers all the time is a "cosmic coincidence" now.

Hi, Thanks for your quick response.

Sorry if I may ask, can you elaborate more on 'cosmic coincidence'  am new to this world of coincidences.
thanks.
