Angel Numbers and What They Mean


Maya Pettiford, Writer

Angel numbers are a repetitive sequence of three or four numbers that appear in seemingly random places in your life to convey a spiritual or divine message. You can see these numbers anywhere. You may look at the clock and realize that it is 4:44 in the afternoon or see a phone number on the back of a service truck that has 222 in it. Whether, you believe in God, some higher power, or the universe, it’s a cosmic nudge affirming that whatever is occurring in your life is meant to be and you’re close to a new beginning. However not all the numbers are the same, in fact they all have their own distinct meaning. Here’s what they all mean… 


111- One is a powerful number for manifestation, which is part of why many make a wish when they see it repeated in a sequence, like 11:11 on a clock. You are bringing prosperity into your life, and whatever spiritual power you feel connected to is there to help guide you. Have confidence in knowing that this energetic portal has opened for you.

222- It can be easy to get tripped up on not being at a certain progress point, which can lead you to compare yourself to others. This can be your reminder to be present, enjoy the moment, and trust that you are exactly where you are supposed to be. 

 333- This symbol stands for encouragement and assistance. 3 means your guardian angels are always there to help you when you’re in need, but it’s time for you to make something happen. You need to have the courage to take on more responsibility.  

444- It is a sign that you are currently following the right path. If you see the number 444 repeatedly, it is often your angel giving you a sign that they are with you. Your angels are guiding you, surrounding you, and answering your prayers of protection. 

555- Angel number 555 is a message from your angels that it is time to let go of the old that is no longer positively serving you. Trust that they will be replaced with better. Stay confident and positive as these new adventures get underway. 

666- Although the number 666 has had negative association it is not necessarily a terrible thing. When you see 666 this may be a sign trying to give you a bit of a reality check. You need to really look at your life and see what may not be the right paths for you to follow.  

777- When you see this number everywhere it is the universe telling you that good fortune is on the way. This is a sign urging you to relax and let go of your fears for the future. You need to give up your control of what is going to happen next.  

888- 888 is a sign that you are creating space in your life for abundance to flow to you. Whatever you have been desiring is now ready to come to you. The number eight is about infinity, or the endless loop of energy. 

999- This is a sign that some aspect of your life is coming to an end. A chapter in your life is closing and you need to trust that the universe is in the process of directing you to the right path that was designed just for your life mission.
