If you subscribe to a belief in numerology, the number “111” is often considered an “angel number,” or a message from your guardian angels or spirit guides. In general, the meaning of 111 is about manifestation. Most numerologists will tell you that the number is a message to be aware of your thoughts because your most persistent, conscious thoughts are manifesting strongly at this particular time.
Whether or not you believe in numerology, I think the message is important. When I looked up “111” online in a number of numerology sites – no pun intended – I began to ask myself, “What are my persistent conscious thoughts?”
I spend a good deal of time every day focused on gratitude. Also, in my recent vacation/staycation I worked through a powerful spiritual course to refocus my thinking on a series of core desired feelings in my life – equanimity, kindness, wonder, and adventure. I have become much better at stopping my internal negative ruminations and reframing my thoughts into positive directions.
So if “111” is trying to get my attention, what is it trying to tell me? I stopped and got very quiet, and started to replay some of the things that I have written in emails and messages over the past few days. True, I am much more optimistic and positive in most of my communication recently, but I have started to find places where I am repeating things that I don’t want to manifest in my life.
As we spend so much more time alone with our thoughts during this quarantine/sparkling isolation I think it is vital to be vigilant about both our inner and outer voices. I am getting better at my inner voice, but my outer one needs a little tweaking.
For instance, as I remark to friends to discuss my ambivalence about going out in public right now I have frequently cited the fact that “people are crazy” as one of the primary reasons for my ramped up isolation. While this is probably true, the fact that I keep repeating it over and over means that I am energizing that reality for myself. Today I have made a conscious effort to reframe that phrase when I am tempted to speak or write it. Instead I say, “I have concerns about going out because so many people are refusing to wear masks and distance in public.”
I have also noticed that I have a habit of saying, “I am so exhausted” quite frequently. I must admit, I do seem to be wearing out quicker than I should lately and I have started napping more consistently, but I need to stop putting that phrase out there so often. If I feel the need to express how I am feeling, I can say something less overarching like, “Right now, I feel a little tired and perhaps I will take a nap.” To just declare a general state of exhaustion is inviting that state to come to me and stay with me.
All of this may sound a little like “woo woo spirituality,” but for me it’s a clearly proven fact that my persistent thoughts and words and actions are magnetic. As I move through more days – perhaps weeks – of being alone most of the time I need to make sure I don’t slip into places of disempowerment due to loneliness. I am paying closer attention to my repeated energies now.
So today, as I ponder the power of “111,” I say back to those angels/guides that are reaching out, “Message received.”
It’s only Quarantine if it comes from the Quarante province of France. Otherwise, it’s just Sparkling Isolation.
