Ever noticed yourself stumbling upon repeating number sequences like 111, 555, or 777…basically everywhere? Like, let’s say you wake up from a nap at 2:22 p.m., then you buy a coffee for $2.22, then you watch a movie that’s 2 hours and 22 minutes long. If you’ve noticed such a pattern, it may not be a coincidence. In numerology, this sequential repetition is referred to as angel numbers. “Angels speak to us in synchronistic ways, which basically means that we will see something over and over again so much so that it goes beyond mere coincidence,” says celebrity aura reader, psychic medium, and spirit guide Megan Michaela Firester, who goes by Mystic Michaela. “One of these ways is through numbers.”
Angel numbers work in accordance with the tenets of numerology, which upholds the notion that each number is connected to a certain vibrational energy or frequency that encompasses meaning beyond its sheer numeric value. Where angel numbers come in, says Michaela, is with the prevalence of how often the number shows up. They serve as a thumbs up, of sorts, to continue along the path you’re currently on. “Seeing a repeating number is like your angel pointing to you and making you feel seen and heard. They are trying to get your attention, and the numbers they send have meanings. Think of it like a little marker saying that you are on the right direction in life, like a highway sign.”

While repeating sequences of the same digit are most obvious, and thus more likely to catch a person’s attention, some people may see a birthdate, a lucky number, or other meaningful digits again and again. But, to help you better understand the angel numbers basics, Michaela breaks down what common repeating digits mean below.
What are angel numbers? A psychic medium explains common sequences, below.
One is a powerful number for manifestation, which is part of why many make a wish when they see it repeated in a sequence, like 11:11 on a clock. “When you see 111, think of the universe as taking a screenshot of your frame of mind,” Michaela says. “Whatever is going on—all your thoughts, visualizations, goals, and dreams— they are going to be replicated.” So when you see this sequence, ensuring your thoughts and energy are focused on what you want can help usher that energy into existence, according to numerology.
In this sometimes-rigidly goal-prioritizing world where we live, it can be easy to get tripped up on not being at a certain progress point, which can lead you to compare yourself to others. When you see the number two everywhere, Michaela says it can be interpreted as an angel-number reminder to be present, enjoy the moment, and trust that you are exactly where you are supposed to be.
This sequence is a prompt from the angels to bring more balance into your life. “They want you to look at the areas of your life that are not fully rounded out, and self-correct,” Michaela says. “Get some meditation going, embark on that workout routine, and finally start that vision board you’ve been procrastinating on.”
If you’re navigating a challenge, and have been trying to get guidance from your spirit guide or signs from the universe, noticing the number four all around you can serve as evidence that you’re being heard. “Your angels are guiding you, surrounding you, and answering your prayers of protection,” Michaela says. “It may be a time of struggle, but you are being led into the light by your guardians.”
When you start spotting 555, that means change is coming. Before you get worried, know that the change is a good thing, even if it might be uncomfortable. “Change can be seen as a negative thing, but with the right mind-set and the right alignment to your goals, it’s actually your angel’s way of readjusting your life to fit with what you want to happen,” Michaela says. “Life will look different when you get what you want.”
Are 666s showing up seemingly everywhere in your life? If so, the angels may be trying to give you a bit of a reality check. “This is a strong message from your angel guardians to take personal responsibility in your own life, and ask yourself in all areas, ‘what do I need to do differently?’” Michaela says.
Repeating sevens are basically the universe urging you to relax and let go of your fears for the future. “Give up your control of what’s going to happen next,” Michaela says. And instead, embrace the present and trust that everything is always working out for you.
“The number eight is about infinity, or the endless loop of energy,” Michaela says. “Seeing it means that you are effortlessly going with the natural flow and rhythm of what your angels have in store for you.” In other words, it’s like a pat on the back and a reminder to be grateful for how far you’ve come.
You’ll likely see repeating nines when you’ve been working on something for a while, and it brings good news in tow. “This number means that the cycle of what you have been doing is reaching completion,” Michaela says. “You are at the finish line of your end goals, and it’s time to start leveling up to visualize some new ones.”
