11 11 clock

Editor’s Note: While elephant is dedicated to being of benefit, generally, and specifically, we focus on our environment, arts, education, social issues, equal rights, meditation, and non-new agey spirituality. So why do we host Astrology, many readers ask? Isn’t it just star superstition? Well see the video below by editor Waylon Lewis. And: as long as these articles are seen for what they are–fun, thought-provoking–we have no problem with them. ~ the editors.

February 29th 2016 is an extremely high vibrational day, so it is essential to focus on remaining grounded, centered and balanced to absorb and fully incorporate the energies.

In numerology: (2+9 = 11) and (2+2+1+6 = 11) equates to 11:11

Every year the number 29 (2+9=11) occurs once in every month, apart from in February, as the number 29 only appears once in every four years. As this year is 2016 ((2 (February) +2+0+1+6 = 11)) it means the total date calculates to 11:11, so we are currently experiencing an extremely rare occurrence.

Most Eastern and Western countries used the standard date yy/mm/dd (2016/2/29) or dd/mm/yy 29/2/2016) which equates to the same 11:11  Although the U.S.—and to a lesser extent Canada—uses the format mm/dd/yy, in terms of numerology the leap year date on 2016 translates to 11:11.

As the numbers 29 and 2 only fall together once every four years there will be a rare and intriguing energy in the atmosphere. Not only is it a leap year, the leap day falls on a double master number, 11:11, which represents awakening and enlightenment.

“According to numerology the number 11 possesses the qualities of patience, honesty, spirituality, sensitivity, intuition and is idealistic and compassionate. Those people who are drawn to 11, operate on a different level of energy than most, and when two people come together who both have this type of energy it’s almost combustible. 11:11 is the universe’s way of urging us to pay attention to our heart, our soul and our inner intuition. It’s serving as a wake-up call to us so that opportunities are not missed in this lifetime.” ~ Kate Rose, Elephant Journal

The number 11 in numerology also represents visions, artistic creations, inventions, innovation, revelations, fulfillment, independence, achievement, individuality and overall highly sensitive beings. 11 is a higher level up from the number 2, which represents love, harmony and balance. Therefore incorporated into the number 11 is an infusion of all the properties of the number 2.

As the number 11 is repeated, it is a wake up call that alerts us to pay attention to patterns that have previously been replaying so that we can recognize anything that is not serving us either individually or as a society as a whole.

We may have noticed lately that we have been seeing a lot of repeated numbers, particularly 11:11. This is a sign that we are attuned to the energy that is pouring in right now and that we can use it to propel us onward on our journey.

Early in the morning of 29/2/16, the energy will begin simmering in our solar plexus, which is the chakra associated with our emotions and intuition. As the day progresses the energy will gain momentum and bubble until we literally feel energized enough to “leap” into a new higher dimension.

As we have been given an extra day, and one with immensely high energy, we can use this time to create affirmations and repeat them throughout the day as a catalyst to create the life we were born to live.

Our intuition will be extremely high right now and we will be experiencing many moments of deja-vu with synchronicities occurring throughout the day. In fact, we may have noticed an increased amount of repeated number sequences or unusual and coincidental happenings more than normal over the previous few weeks in preparation for 29/2/2016’s energy.

The term “synchronicity” was coined by Carl Jung and he explained that regular occurrences are more than just “frequent coincidences” and appear specifically to align us to our highest potential by showing us the reality behind the dream-like world we exist in. They are sharp and sudden unmistakable jolts that are delivered by the universe in the form of subliminal messages. They are sent to gently shake us so that we arise from slumber and no longer walk around in a sleep-like state.

Jung went on to explain that synchronicities are revelations and they only occur if we are actively participating in them, so if we are experiencing synchronicities it means that we are already involved in the unfolding of our full potential.

The reason synchronicities feel so highly significant is because they are confirmations that we are exactly where we are meant to be, or who we are meant to meet, at the exact right time. Whenever we place our faith in these occurrences we will be rewarded by more of the same. Each event, whether minor or major, will direct us closer toward our unique and divine higher purpose.

Synchronicities also give us a sense of interconnection to all that exists as they allow us to have faith that whatever is in front of us on our journey has been placed there to assure us that we are safe to unravel and evolve. Regardless of whether whatever happens to us is a trial or tribulation, a blessing or a curse, it is all perfectly playing out to propel us to look beyond any illusions and gain clarity and new understanding that is required for our vital spiritual growth.

Synchronistic illuminations offer integration and oneness and when we follow our intuition they expose our much sought after twin soul. Although many believe the twin soul can only be found through entanglement with another being, we reconnect with our twin soul when we eradicate our ego and peel away all the layers to encounter the vulnerability and humaneness of our soul, in all its shades.

“Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.” ~ Carl Jung

We are also energetically gifted with the mystical qualities of Pisceans due to 29/2/2016 taking place in the sign of Pisces.

Pisceans are the most spiritually advanced star sign, which means currently we will be feeling an enhanced and profound connection to our emotions, intuition, imagination and creativity. The combination of these characteristics will swiftly guide us closer toward whatever we are destined to achieve.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, so this period also represents letting go of our old existence and preparing for a brand new phase that is fueled with a significant amount of 11:11 high frequency enlightening energy.

As Pisces is a water sign we will also have the grace and skill to flow through any obstacles that adorn our path, rather than pushing against the current and reverting to familiar patterns that have previously held us back.

Overall this is a time to become highly aware of our thoughts, emotions, feelings, memories, intentions, motivations and beliefs as essentially all of these things are colluding to manifest our current and future existence. If there is anything not going right for us, or we are struggling in certain areas of our life, we can pull it straight back to an ancient wound that needs attention before it will heal. 11:11 also brings forward the wounded healers in us, which causes us to reach out to tormented souls before first resolving any conflict in our own.

We will be guided toward taking better care of ourselves emotionally, physically and mentally through this time and by doing so, we will clear any old karma that has been keeping us captive in the past.

As we are waking up to this altered state of reality we can now take complete charge over our destiny and begin to create and achieve whatever it is we aim for, quite simply by remaining aware and alert to the signs all around and the sensations they trigger within.

When we look at the number 11 we can perceive it as the opening of a door. On 29/2/2016 we will receive the invitation to step into a significant phase in our life, one where we are being offered optimum opportunity to break through old habits and charter change. Our movement will be assisted with the electrical waves of magnetic energy that are all around us right now. They will repel or attract any entities we want to dispel or draw in toward us.

One side of 11:11 is a door that we can courageously walk through and open a new chapter and leave behind the old. The other side is a window to look through so we can use our insight and see what’s slightly ahead so that we can be forewarned or forearmed and empowered to continue.

We have a rare chance to use this 11:11 leap year energy, as this number will not land on a leap day again for many years. Therefore, if we have ever been tempted to make a plan far beyond our wildest imagination, today is most definitely one of those “miracles-and-wishes-can-come-true” days. It is now time to view the potential inside and make whatever you have been dreaming of happen.

Wait until the clock strikes 11:11, watch the clock for the entire minute and then close your eyes and take an exhilarating leap into an intriguing and magical future. Fortunately, there is double the opportunity to manifest life-changing transformation, as 11:11, as always, occurs twice during one day.

For over three years I've been constantly seeing the time 11:11. My husband passed away unexpectedly on February 29, 2016. I continue seeing 11:11. Please help me make some sense out of this. Is it sheer coincidence or is it something else?

anonymous Mar 10, 2016 5:03pm

This was a very great read 11:11 new beginnings.

anonymous Mar 5, 2016 12:04am

Today my receipt 29.29..

anonymous Mar 1, 2016 1:15pm

Well I had a terrible day yesterday. I gave a presentation and got so nervous I couldn’t breathe, it was escalating into a panic attack, I had to stop several times, I almost thought I might break down in tears. I think it was as painful to watch as it was for me to give. I’m just glad yesterday is over. Public speaking is the worst!

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 6:23pm

As a Piscean who for the last couple of years has found myself looking at the clock randomly at 11:11 or 1:11, I find this extremely interesting. I meditated today from 11 am to 11:30. Some very enlightening things occurred. I never felt I had the time to meditate but the truth is we all have time to do the things that we make a priority. We are all given the same hours each day. It’s how we use them that matters the most. Great article!!

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 5:20pm

I began feeling what the article is writing about this morning around 11, and without understanding the vibration, I made an important move. This article helped to confirm that my feelings were in alignment with the special vibrations of the day. It's also my sister's birthday.

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 2:29pm

Numbers are fact. No matter how they are used in different practices.
Numerlogy is a system to help provide insight, a month + year had & will be used to join chapters for growth. If your not able to understand this then instead of closing your mind by what eyes see then reread more about the subject. Maybe math not plain enough
Try this with out the date since it is not every year calender day. The year is the whole year Feb is always there
Feb (2nd. Month)=2 + (2016)=36=9 simple 2+9-= 11 now. Since the date stands alone simply because it not every year the 29th = 11
Can you see why now.
If your looking for logic where things exist & factually happen without logic you will always be confused.
Have a wonderful leap day & Try a 11:11 moment.

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 1:50pm

If someone is not able to stare at the clock for a full minute, I wonder if setting an "intention" would be just as effective?

Since the entire day is all about transformation, change , new beginnings et al, I think there would be power in setting an intention in place or even meditating for a minute to set the thought, intention in motion.

Namaste 🙂

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 1:37pm

I have a question: can you still benefit if perhaps you are not able to stare at the clock @ 11:11 am or pm? For example, I missed it this morning due to having read the article post 11:11am, and this evening I will be working and may not be able to stare at the clock for that full minute. Just my 2 cents. 🙂

Is it also safe to assume that one could maybe set an intention for transformation since the entire day in and of itself is about change, transformation, new beginnings et al?

Namaste xo

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 10:22am

2292016 = 22216
reason being: 9 is everything and nothing, it equates to 0 so remove the 9

2+2+2+1+6 = 4

so the answer is 4 or 1111


anonymous Feb 29, 2016 9:58am

Alex explains her math in the article.

Maybe you should read more than the title?

2nd paragraph in:

2016 ((2 (February) +2+0+1+6 = 11))

(3rd paragraph if you count the deck/subhead as a paragraph, which I’m guessing some of you. And to be even more explicit, I did not count the disclaimer.)

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 9:10am

While I don’t necessarily agree with the author, she clearly explains the math. She is adding the number 2 for the month of February to the sum of each number in the year 2016. So yes, if you add up all the numbers in 2016 you only get 9 but if you add another 2 for February you get 11. This is not hard, and I think the moderators should not have allowed the first 3 comments to be posted- it’s one thing to be an angry troll trying to poke holes in someone’s logic, but it’s another thing to be a lazy troll that can’t read for comprehension or do basic arithmetic. As for the comment from TheLetterK, I hear you that it’s a contrived equation and don’t disagree with your logic, but I do know that people who believe in this stuff believe we make the significance, so it may be an arbitrary & poorly designed calendar that resulted in this special number, but that’s ok since most of the world is using this calendar that’s what gives it significance.

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 8:06am

Alex is calculating the month and the year. And Jim, yes it would also be 22.

Thank you for the reminder to be mindful as a Pisces and Reiki master, I definitely understand.



anonymous Feb 29, 2016 7:50am

After reading the article

I get the following


February = 2

2016 = 2+0+1+6 = 9

2 + 9 = 11

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 3:58am

2+2+1+6 = Feb +2016 = 2+2+0+1+6 = 11

just read the article carefully

    anonymous Feb 29, 2016 8:36am

    I have never seen a month *substituted* into the calculation of the year. They stand independently. 29 is 2+9=11, no question, but 2016 is, unequivocally, 2+0+1+6 which equals 9. I've never seen the month suddenly incorporated into the year to match numbers that mean something to us on an individual basis. Today is an 11:9 not an 11:11, though I take all the merit from the 11:11 symbology that is being communicated… Though somewhat misplaced 🙁 x

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 2:35am

“In numerology: (2+9 = 11) and (2+2+1+6 = 11) equates to 11:11”

02/29/2016. Where are you getting “2216” from? You’re really grasping at straws to make this special aren’t you? This isn’t any significant date in any way. The whole reason we have leap years is because our method of calculating time was so archaic and inaccurate that we have to make special rules to make it continue to work in any scientifically accurate way.

anonymous Feb 29, 2016 12:12am

Wouldn't it be 22 as well?

    anonymous Feb 29, 2016 8:27am

    11+2+9=22 so yes, from 29+2(feb)+2016 we get 22 which is a master number, but in the equation, there is no 11:11 :-/

anonymous Feb 28, 2016 11:37pm


anonymous Feb 28, 2016 6:30pm

Not sure how 2016 = 11. I would be 2+1+6= 9.
