In Numerology it is understood that numbers express a specific vibrational essence that can connect a person to the hidden, inner truth at the foundation of their being.
The visible world as we know it originates in an energetic reality that is impossible to apprehend with the naked eye.
Humanity has made many attempts to understand this realm of experience and Numerology is one of many methods that have been both instructive and effective at shining a light on this hidden aspect of reality.
Numbers govern every aspect of human experience. If you really examine your experience, you will see that your mind instantly recognizes numerical values expressing themselves in all kinds of ways.
Whether we are talking about dates, times, monetary amounts, distances, durations, volume, capacity or larger cycles of time and space, we can instantly see how our experience is unconsciously shaped and determined by numbers in all of their different aspects and possible meanings.
Numerology takes the appearance of numbers in our experience as a direct communication from the unseen intelligence that shapes our experience, whether you call it God, the Angels, the unconscious or Source.
The Meaning of 1 and 11
Understanding the meaning of the number 111 means breaking it down to its constituent parts, 1 and 11.
The number 1 is the number of self sufficiency and independence. The essence of the number 1 is self-assertiveness, originality and independence. When the number 1 is your life path number, it means that you are creative and likely to be more of a leader than a follower.
Card number one of the Major Arcana of the Tarot is The Magician (or Cobbler). This is the creative genius in all of us, brimming with confidence as he puts his plans into creative activity.
In the I Ching, the first Hexagram, The Creative, is regarded as the most auspicious oracle possible, representing the working of pure positive energy bringing you sublime success.
The number 11 is generally considered to be a special number or Master Number in Numerology.
Being a two-digit or compound number, the Master Number 11 defies the ordinary protocols of Numerology in that it is not reduced to a single digit vibration.
This is because the essence of Master Number 11 is extremely powerful and spiritually evolved. In the I Ching, the 11th Hexagram has been translated as ‘Peace’ or ‘Heaven on Earth.’
It is also important to note that 1 and 11 both represent the beginning of a new cycle in a base 10 system.
The Spiritual Meaning of 111
When you see the number 111 it is a message from your inner genius, the spiritual power that informs your being, that your desires are about to become manifest in your experience.
It is a message that you are in the right place at the right time, the Magician within you is doing his work, so maintain a positive focus and look for the opportunities that are coming your way.
When you combine the energy of the number 1, represented in the Tarot by the Magician and the Hexagram The Creative in the I Ching, with the power of Master Number 11, you are in alignment with powerful creative forces that are at work in the universe.
Another highly spiritual angel number is 911.

The Essence of 111
Doreen Virtue calls number 111 an Angel Number. This is a number that is charged with special significance, as we have explained above, so it is important to be mindful of your thoughts and feelings when you see 111 appear in your experience.
It is recommended that you take time to slow down, quiet the mind with meditation and focus your thoughts on positive outcomes.
