Synchronicity numbers are numbers that seem to appear repeatedly for no apparent reason. They’re very similar to angel numbers, and synchronicities have an essential part to play in the law of attraction too.
However, while we cover the law of attraction in-depth here at Widibi, you don’t have to be a practitioner for synchronicity numbers to play a part in your everyday life. They appear everywhere and to everyone. There’s probably a synchronicity number chasing you around right now. The difference is that some people pay no attention to these numbers, while others know to keep an open mind.
They can appear just about anywhere, but it goes without saying that you’re more likely to see them in places you’re most likely to encounter numbers generally. It’s unlikely, for example, that the stars will rearrange themselves in the sky to spell out a repeating number! However, clocks and watches are common signs of these numbers, as are till receipts and phone numbers.
The possibilities don’t end there either. You might encounter patterns in games and movies, video timestamps, adverts and anything else. To put it simply, if it’s not out of the ordinary for something to have a number on it, there’s every chance you’ll notice a synchronicity.
Why Do I See Synchronicity Numbers?
If you start to notice synchronicity numbers, it means that someone (or something) is trying to send you a message. I personally call them angel numbers interchangeably because the terminology works for me – they’re a message from the angels.
Now, I’m not saying that there’s an angel up there sitting on a cloud, complete with halo and harp, browsing through a book of number codes to send you a message. But then again, I’m not saying it isn’t the case either!
In more general terms, it’s possible to switch out angels and swap in the universe in general. I don’t believe in coincidences, but I do believe in synchronicities, and if you do too, you’ll put less stock into coincidences too. It comes down to a feeling that everything happens for a reason. If you do decide to dabble in the law of attraction, you’ll find that there’s every reason to believe it.
But, as I say, you don’t have to care for the law of attraction at all for synchronicities to have an effect on your life.
What Do Synchronicity Numbers Mean?
Think of this article as more of an introduction to synchronicity numbers. There simply isn’t enough space here to go through the meaning of every single number. They’re commonly between one and four digits long and, just like an ATM PIN, that means that there are quite a few combinations. Indeed, even without going into even longer combinations, there are 10,000 potential numbers!
With that said, individual digits often mean the same thing. For example, if you encounter the synchronicity number 1234 at one point in your life and 1567 at another, the first digit often means something similar. The other digits can change the context, but it’s a great starting point.
With that in mind, let’s look at zero through to nine in brief for a quick overview of what your synchronicity number might mean.
Synchronicity Number 0
Of all synchronicity numbers, 0 is the one with the most religious connotations. I have to admit that I’m not overly religious myself, but most interpretations of zero in synchronicity involve God in some form. My chosen understanding is that you’re never alone if you see 0 a lot. If you feel like you need help with something or just someone to talk to, a synchronicity number containing 0 indicates that the assistance you need is close at hand.
Synchronicity Number 1
Synchronicity number 1 indicates a new beginning and a fresh start. Funnily enough, the repeating number 111 is the most common reason for people looking deeper into the concept of synchronicity numbers. In that particular case, it’s a request to take stock of your surroundings, often with an eye on improving a situation. If you’re moving house, changing jobs or otherwise doing something different to the norm, the synchronicity number 1 is always a highly encouraging sign.
Synchronicity Number 2
The number 2 in synchronicities often indicates people coming closer together. It represents a union between people, but that doesn’t necessarily need to involve love or even your personal life. If you find yourself in conflict with someone at work, seeing a synchronicity number that includes 2 often suggests an upcoming compromise or other resolution. Of course, if you do have your eye on a romantic liaison, this number could mean that it’s just around the corner.
Synchronicity Number 3
If you often see the synchronicity number 3, or it’s involved in a longer string of digits, you need to remember to trust yourself. As a writer, I sometimes experience imposter syndrome. I know I’m pretty good at what I do, but it’s easy to assume that things can go wrong at any moment. So 3 is one of the most reassuring synchronicity numbers as it lets you know that whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it well and should continue on whatever path you’ve chosen.
Synchronicity Number 4
The number 4 in synchronicities involves stability and focus. It most commonly appears in messages to people that feel like things might be getting out of hand. Perhaps you’ve become more laid back or disorganised than usual. As a result, you might find yourself constantly taking the easy option when you should instead focus on the challenges ahead. If you notice this message, it’s time to refocus and take a chance.
Synchronicity Number 5
If you find yourself encountering the number 5 more often than usual, either alone or in combination with other numbers, then it’s time to prepare yourself for change. It’s a sign that your life will soon be substantially different, and you need to be ready to rise to the challenge. Of course, like most synchronicities, seeing this number is almost always a good thing, but you should be prepared to grab new opportunities with both hands.
Synchronicity Number 6
Even people with no knowledge of or interest in synchronicities knows to be wary of the number 6, especially if it repeats three times! Fortunately, angel numbers aren’t related to devils in this case. Instead, the number 6 revolves around unconditional love. It could mean a change in your personal life but primarily serves as a reminder to make time and affection for those closest to you. Someone might soon need your support, or they might miss you if you’ve been caught up on other things. This synchronicity number is an opportunity to reconsider your responsibilities.
Synchronicity Number 7
The number 7 is the most common single-digit lucky number in the world. However, synchronicity numbers don’t really pay much attention to luck as a concept. This is one of the most substantial numbers of its kind and indicates that you’re about to learn something new. It’s a sign not to give up, even if things have become more complicated than you might have hoped. It’s a symbol of hope and help. If you need assistance from someone else to get over a hump, they’re on their way.
Synchronicity Number 8
8 is my favourite number and has been since before I had any idea of what synchronicities were. When I found out what it means in this context, I started to like it even more! If you see numerical messages that focus on the synchronicity number 8, it’s a reflection of your strength as a person. That doesn’t have to be physical but could be emotional or even involve wisdom. This is a great number to see if you’re looking to improve your financial situation, as it indicates that a cash injection could be on its way.
Synchronicity Number 9
Synchronicity number 9 is the most philosophical of the numbers. It doesn’t necessarily mean anything will change in the real world. Instead, it encourages you to think more about changing the world around you yourself and doing so for the better. Do something to help yourself, but do something to help others too. It’s a sign that you’ve got a lot to give, and now might be an excellent opportunity to share it with someone else.
What To Do When You See Synchronicity Numbers
If you start to see synchronicity numbers, the first thing you should do is look up the meaning. We’re working on adding more in-depth guides to what different number combinations mean here at Widibi, but we won’t be offended if you go somewhere else in the meantime!
Once you understand precisely what a specific combination of numbers means, you’ll have a better idea of the next steps. It really depends on the nature of the numbers themselves. Some messages simply want you to sit tight and let things play out, in which case you don’t need to do anything at all – at least until the numbers change.
Some messages are the ever-popular announcement of an announcement – a message that wants to catch your attention to make sure you’re on the lookout for further messages in the near future.
Others want you to do something, but even that could vary. Some numbers want you to keep on doing what you’re doing already. Others want you to switch course to something else. What you do and when remains down to you – synchronicity numbers are advice and guidance, but they’re not hard rules.
With that said, these messages come from a position of positivity. When the universe tries to nudge you in a specific direction, it tends to do so with your best interests in mind.
Synchronicity Numbers – In Summary
Synchronicity numbers are messages from someone or something else in the universe looking to provide information or guide you in the right direction. They can appear anywhere you’d typically expect to see numbers, from TV screens and books to clockfaces and phone numbers.
The important thing is to keep your eyes and mind open and to recognise when seemingly random numbers form a regular, repeating pattern. From there, you can use online resources to crack the code and act accordingly.
