What are Angel Numbers and what do they mean?

Whether you are aware of the unseen realm of Angels and Enlightened Beings, one thing can be certain: They are always giving us messages or signs of their presence. It may feel like nothing more than a coincidence when you wake up exactly at 2:22 am momentarily each morning for days in a row, but what if your Angels were trying to tell you something? So what are Angel Numbers, and what do they mean? The phenomena of “Number Sequences”, more often known as Angel numbers has become quite prevalent in our society, and with authors like Doreen Virtue popularizing the idea, the Angel’s and their numbers have become difficult to ignore.

The phenomena of “Number Sequences”, more often known as Angel numbers has become quite prevalent in our society, and with authors like Doreen Virtue popularizing the idea, the Angel’s and their numbers have become difficult to ignore. Angel numbers are essentially short sequences of numbers that keep appearing to you or seem to stand out at a meaningful time. Just like with everything else in this world, numbers are information and carry a specific vibration. When we meditate upon the numbers that appear to us, we’ll more often than not be able to understand their messages.

Sometimes the Angels will show you numbers simply to catch your attention, other times it’s a reminder to tune into your Angels. Take this opportunity to ask what they’re trying to tell you by going into a meditative state and connecting with your Higher Guidance team! Remember, the Angels can’t give you their messages if you’re not open and vibrating at a higher level! Quiet your mind, focus on your breath, open your heart and allow them to speak to you.

The first mistake that we humans make when we think about the Angels is that they are somehow separate from us, existing in Heaven or in other dimensions that we will never be able to fully understand. While that is true, we must also take into consideration the nature of our own being and our own inner dimensions. The awareness that exists behind your thoughts, the same awareness that makes up your body and its infinite number of cells, is the same awareness that is the True You, and is intimately connected to these Angelic Beings – and they exist within you, just as much as you exist within them! We forget that we already have all the answers, the secrets to life and more, all contained within. The Angels are here to remind us of our Universal Connection to All-There-Is and that we can access our Divine Knowledge any time we choose!

Because of our temporary amnesia, these beings will work in a couple of ways to get our attention. Usually, they will give us a gentle nudge towards what they are trying to show us. This will usually be a number sequence, but sometimes it can be more profound, like having an urge to look out the window and then seeing a deer in your back yard! When it’s a number, the Angels will do this deliberately until you notice the pattern and decide to take interest in what it could mean. Their messages aren’t limited to around your home or in a familiar space either. These numbers can also appear at a grocery store, where they’ll actually help your basket synchronistically add up to $22.22, or $33.33, or when you’re driving behind a car and the license plate will read 222 333 for example!

Why can’t they communicate with us directly?

As mentioned previously, the Angels exist on a higher frequency than we currently vibrate at – meaning they are just out of our perceptual range. In dire circumstances, they will appear to us, or in passing, as someone who is there to help us out. In my experience I’ve had two Angels come to me, one was there helping the team of nurses and doctor help deliver my daughter, and the second came to me while at work to give me a reminder of how Sacred life is. Both had a knowing look in their eyes and a profoundness about them that left me in awe. I am very grateful for their messages!
