Angel Numbers: What They Symbolize and Why You Keep Seeing Them

Angel Numbers

Number sequences can convey important and sometimes spiritual messages to us. Often when we see a number in repetition, it serves as forms of spiritual communication, and it is called an “angel number.” Angel numbers appear as number patterns or sequences anywhere in your daily life. Some angel numbers have a shared meaning, while others are left up to interpretation.

Angel numbers are said to be the most common way that angels communicate with people here on earth. These numbers appear to people as repeating sequences of numbers. Sometimes angel numbers are a sign of comfort, and some indicate if there is something that needs to be avoided or changed in your environment. Angel number patterns are one example of spirit guide communication signs that send us signals here on earth.

They let you know that you, as an individual, are not alone; we, as humans, are not alone in this universe. If you’re interested in interpreting angel numbers, this article is for you. Keep reading for what angel numbers symbolize, and why you keep seeing them.

What Angel Numbers Symbolize

Angel numbers have all kinds of different meanings. It’s up to you to figure out what they symbolize, and how you’ll proceed after interpreting them. An essential part of angel numbers is understanding that your attention is drawn to these numbers, and they are put on your path by angels that are trying to communicate with you.

These angels or this angel could be a companion who is particular to you, in which case the meaning could be affected by the one conveying the message. If you determine that the number is connected to a certain angel, then that could alter the meaning of the angel numbers.

The religious beliefs of the receiver of the angelic communication are also important. They are taken into account by the angels that direct the individual to the number in question, understanding that the receiver can only understand a message that they are receptive to already.

Here are some examples of angel number sequences and what they mean:


This sequence is said to mean that you need to monitor your thoughts with care. At this time, you should be wary of thinking about things that you do not want to see in your life or the environment around you.

Instead, consider the things that you do hope for. The reasoning for this is because this number sequence is an indication that an opportunity is opening up for you, and your thoughts will begin to manifest.


This number follows after the previous one. It works under the pretense that your thoughts have begun to manifest physically, and it is now time for you to make sure that you nurture these newly planted ideas as they grow stronger in reality.

This may be a period of trial for you where you feel like you are very close, but the goal is impossible to reach. In this case, the angel number serves as a form of motivation and encouragement. If you see 222 repeatedly, you’re on the right track.

333 and 444

The 333 number sequence is meant to comfort you in knowing that the higher powers are by your side, cheering you on towards the end goal (or success).

The 444 sequence, on the other hand, is an indication that angels have come to surround you and are cheering you on.


This is a sign that a significant life change is upon you, and you should be ready to take action. It is important to not view this change as either positive or negative, but rather just a sign that change is on the horizon.

Some of the sequences are not as straightforward as those mentioned above. The sequence 144, for example, is said to be a number for old souls and teachers, reminding them of the importance of the work they are doing here on earth. The sequence 12:12 is also said to be a sign that you are now on your divine path.

Why You Keep Seeing Angel Numbers

When an individual is the subject of angelic communication, they are likely to see the angelic number sequence, which is the message for them in some different places. The purpose of this is to catch the individual’s attention and get them to notice the number so that they can act on it.

You may, for example, start seeing the same number on everything, you go to get a new license plate, and the new plate ends in the number 13. That same day, you bake a cake for a special event later on in the evening, and you set the timer so that the cake remains in the oven.

The first time you glance over at the oven again, there are 13 minutes left on the clock. A few minutes later, a friend calls, and instead of their caller ID, for some reason, only their number shows up.

At that moment, you notice for the first time that their phone number ends in a 13. In this example, the key must be that angels are trying to communicate to you through the number 13.

With this in mind, however, it is essential to note that these numbers will appear in places where numbers are usually seen and not in strange or out of the way places that may be obvious to everyone. Because of this, they do require some extra attentiveness and a lack of skepticism to be able to identify, interpret, and use to their betterment.

Besides the physical location where we can expect these numbers, they are also attached to specific moments in time. If you are going through a pivotal season of change in your life, for example, angel numbers may start appearing as a guide to direct you towards a particular path or to steer you away from an alternate position.

The period of transformation you are experiencing can be a spiritual one. It may also be a material (or physical) change.

You may sometimes not be fully aware of this transformation, but some obvious physical clues that appear to us are significant events like birthdays or weddings, or on the flip side, a funeral. All of these things mark significant changes in one’s life and can be benchmarks for use.

Finding Help Interpreting Angel Numbers

However, it is also essential to note that these interpretations are not set in stone. It is necessary for anyone who is running into angelic numbers to seek a divine interpretation of the message being conveyed to them.

This could be done by consulting a spiritual guide who you trust. It could be your local pastor, the monk of a nearby temple, a spiritual mentor, or a spiritual teacher that you can meet in person or online.

For some, the key may even be to take the message into personal prayers or rituals and to seek the answer for themselves.

Final Thoughts

Angel numbers are a means of communication from a source outside of our being or an angel. They’re numbers or number sequences that are seen throughout your daily life and are meant to help guide you. Sometimes these numbers are meant to warn you. Other times they’re telling you to proceed.

Angel numbers can symbolize different things and are always subject to interpretation by the individual. Thankfully, there are professionals out there that can help you further identify the meanings behind your angel numbers.

But keep in mind, seeing the same numbers frequently, especially number sequences or patterns at pivotal times in your life, can be a sign that someone is looking out for you. Angel numbers shouldn’t be ignored.
