The Meaning of 111 in Numerology – Chase Down Your Dreams & Heal Your Root Chakra

Do you keep seeing 111 or 1:11? Wondering if it’s more than an Angel Code? You’re right…it is. As a numerologist, I see 111 a lot. That’s not surprising, as I’ve just entered a Personal 1 Month in a Personal 1 Year in numerology – new beginnings all around.

Post now updated at: Spiritual Meaning of Seeing Angel Number 111

Having Googled many pages on numerology, I get peeved at the amount of repetitive information out there. There sure is a lot of copy and pasting going on! As someone who studies numbers for a living, there is far more to 111 than just ‘keeping your thoughts positive’, although that’s certainly relevant…

We all have Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels, who are a team of helpers who with us from birth and/ or during certain chapters of life. These Guides use signs such as triple numbers to let us know they’re around. If you don’t believe in Guides, perhaps consider these numbers a message from your subconscious mind?

I believe that ‘you see what you are’. We see numbers because we are numbers – little packets of energy in Divine order. Nothing is accidental – you came here for a reason and life wants you to succeed. After all – if you water a seed, it grows – doesn’t that tell you we live on a kind planet

Everything and everyone on Earth is a mass of vibrating particles, energy and sound. Those who know how to raise their frequency, experience huge synchronicity, as I cover in question five below.

Just as words and letters have varying meanings depending on their context, numbers bring different messages, depending on what’s going on the day you see them. Until you keep a diary of your experiences and look for patterns, it may not be clear what the Universe is telling you.

My tip is to notice what you are thinking about each time you see 111 – is it a person? New career? House move? New goal? 1 energy is about action and creation – being ‘at one’ with your life purpose. Think of a friend cheering for you during a race – that’s 111 in a nutshell. A cosmic ‘go for it!’ or ‘you’re onto a winner’.

Five Questions to Ask if You Keep Seeing 111
on clocks, receipts, licence plates, phone numbers, addresses etc. The following information is based on my experience reading for thousands of clients, so you won’t find it in books yet.

1) Am I a 1 lifepath (Pioneer/ Action Hero) in numerology?
If so, then you’re here to be one-of-a-kind, a black (or even purple) sheep in a white sheep world. Find your lifepath 1’s become top dogs in their chosen fields, after some effort. When you know your lifepath, you can focus your efforts productively, instead of  comparing yourself to others. Hint: You could also have 1’s in your numerology chart (e.g. your name could have a 1 Destiny, which is executive ability). I write about names on my lifepath page mentioned above. People with birthdays on the 1st of the month may also see 111 as a reminder that they are born leaders.

Tee hee – the only time I’ve ever refunded a numerology workshop attendee was when a 1 lifepath guy sat down for five minutes. He listened intently to his life purpose, then started yawning. I said ‘do you want to go now?’ and he was like ‘yep, I just wanted to know about myself’. Everyone else giggled. I thought he was great – he knew what he wanted and didn’t waste any time. Of course, I might be biased as my partner is a 1 lifepath too.

2) Am I in a relationship with a 1 lifepath? They could be your partner, parent, colleague, boss, even your child. Numerology is fantastic for helping us to understand other people. Maybe Spirit is showing you 1’s to remind you to give your 1 lifepath partner or friend more independence.

1’s like to feel in control rather than be told what to do – it’s best to give them choices rather than ultimatums. They often start out shy, and must overcome bullying, insecurity and addictions to claim their place in society. Many of them become acclaimed actors, directors, musicians and activists (think Hugh Jackman, George Lucas, Eminem, Maya Angelou and Martin Luther King, Jnr – a Youtube playlist is described below). More on 1 lifepaths.

Tip: If you can’t find any 1 lifepaths in your life, you could be about to meet one (pun intended). This happens frequently when you are in a 1 Personal Year (see 3) below), because you’ll be feeling restless and in need of inspiration.

3) Am I in a 1 Personal Year or Month in numerology? We live in 9 year cycles. You don’t want to miss the boat in your 1 Personal Year – it’s the best time to begin your dream relationship, career, lifestyle and so on. Well before I knew numbers, I started my hobby palmreading business in a 1 Personal Year, and it’s still going strong. Find your personal year here.

4) Do I need Root or Base Chakra healing? I believe every number correlates to a chakra (a Kundalini Yoga idea, among others). Seeing 111 could be a reminder to balance your base chakra and make sure your dreams are rooted in reality. Our root chakra is an energy centre located in our lower spine, legs and feet. Place your hands on your tailbone/ lower back – this is the centre of the chakra. Massaging it is a great way to get the chi flowing.

When your root chakra is in balance, you feel at home in your body – safe, energised and able to move forwards in life. You find it easy to stand on your own two feet, look after your body and support yourself. You finish what you start, because you are grounded, healthy and proactive in chasing down your dreams. People see you as reliable and long-term focused. You’re not afraid of criticism because you know who your supporters are – your family and/ or tribe keep you strong.

When your root chakra is out of balance, you feel uncomfortable in your body, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, spinal and joint pain, cold feet, hoarding, insecurity, infertility, weight issues, addictionsmoney problems, and impatience. 

It’s tempting to take shortcuts and gamble because we’re in fight or flight mode, looking for a quick fix. There can be fear of the future, insomnia, nightmares and a reluctance to ask for help, often due to past-life* or childhood trauma. It’s like you don’t feel at home anywhere.

There are many sites and books covering chakra healing (e.g. Eye of The Lotus by Richard Jelusich and this page by One World Healing), so I won’t repeat them all.

The more fears you conquer, the stronger your will to live. The more fears conquer you, the less your will to live. It’s a dangerous slippery slope when you stop believing life is worthwhile – please, ask for professional help or counselling if you are experiencing depression.

1+1+1 = 3 so 111 can also relate to Solar Plexus Chakra healing – taking back your power by keeping things simple and taking one step at a time.

5) Am I seeing 111 as well as other sequences such as 11:11, 1212, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, 909, 999, 911 etc? (I have posts on most of hese codes on my 11:11 Clocks page)

This is the question that leads many people to book readings and numerology workshops with me. As an 11:11 on clocks researcher, I’ve heard from at least a thousand people on their unusual number experiences. I’ve also experienced hundreds of inexplicable events (such as a man yelling 11:11 at me in a bank), so I know how weird it can get.

Don’t worry, you’re not going crazy or OCD. You’re just seeing the truth behind reality – that you’re an infinite Soul . People who see many types of repeating numbers are highly psychic, sensitive Souls who are ready to wake up to their spiritual potential. Amusingly, they often work in occupations with numbers (science, finance, business, etc) and claim to be sceptics.

As someone with this background, I think it’s a cosmic joke that so many 11:11 see’rs come from corporate, scientific or government backgrounds. It’s like we need to have conventional jobs first, so people will respect us once we go into alternative lifestyles later. Numbers are harder to ignore than feathers or goosebumps – Spirit uses them to convince logical people that there’s more to life than what we’re taught in school.

I’ve heard us called Lightworkers, Starseeds, Master Teachers, all kinds of things – names are not important. What is crucial is to know, that you are about to go through a 5-9 year period of rapid evolution. The numbers are a friendly wake up call, letting you know that you are ready to shift to a higher state of living.

I see 111, 1111, 222 etc. as a Spiritual Disco, or Angel Number Party – perhaps it’s time for you to make some noise and request the music (life) that you’ve always wanted. Please, read my 11:11 page. Studying metaphysics, numerology, meditation, manifestation and energy healing is recommended. This will bring you into communities of like-hearted Souls – as they say there’s ‘strength and safety in numbers’.

Once you know how to interpret and harness number energy, life becomes the most fascinating adventure imaginable. I know, because I’ve gone from sceptic to teacher in just one decade.

True story: On my Personal 1 Day, Personal 1 Month, Personal 1 Year (9 September 2016), not only did my baby start rolling, I bought a pair of sneakers for the first time since 2010 and my period came back after 16 months. My creativity and fertility literally got a massive kick start. Since then, I’ve taken up Calligraphy Yoga (qi-gong mixed with yoga), found a new naturopath and kinesiologist and started running. Did I mention that I also saw my telepathic Dad for the first time in years?

I am a Master 11 lifepath, and my fiance Kris is a 28/10/1 lifepath. Since the beginning of our relationship we’ve seen combinations like 111, 1111, 1110 and 1011, which we take as a sign we are Soulmates. I particularly see these numbers when we are going through big ups and downs – they are like cheerleaders to me, letting me know that love is all around.

When I’m seeing 111 a lot, I contact my 1 lifepath friends, like Deniz Akan, a crystal healer. I practice yoga to energise my spine, and focus on getting the basics right – sleep, food and exercise. I’ll also do psychic readings at home to prepare for change. As they say, planning halves doing.

BONUS – Here’s a Youtube Playlist of 111 Numerology – Mood Music It contains songs and works with 1 energy, or by 1 lifepath artists and speakers. Here are some quotes from the lyrics which echo my 111 thoughts above (not in order of the playlist):

Blue’s One Love ‘I don’t want to give up/ I don’t want to give in (oh no)/One love, gotta stay alive (oh)” 1 is about deep resilience.

U2’s One ‘One love, One blood, One life, You got to do what you should…One life, With each other, Sisters, Brothers…’

Bob Marley’s One Love ‘One Love! One Heart! Let’s get together
and feel all right.’
111 is the power of people standing together.

Martin Luther King Jnr’s What is Your Life’s Blueprint? ‘Number one in your life’s blueprint, should be a deep belief in your own dignity, your worth and your own somebodiness. Don’t allow anybody to make you fell that you’re nobody. Always feel that you count.’ Wow, what a brilliant explanation of 1 energy in its highest vibration! See the transcript – it’s lifechanging. He was a 28/10/1.

What Is Your Life’s Blueprint?
A Profound Speech by Dr Martin Luther King Jnr.

Maya Angelou’s And Still I Rise ‘Does my sexiness upset you?/
Does it come as a surprise/ That I dance like I’ve got diamonds/
At the meeting of my thighs?
1 energy is about being comfortable with your creative (root) and sexual power. Maya was a 28/10/1.

And Still I Rise
The Unforgettable Maya Angelou

Ed Sheeran’s One ‘All my senses come to life/ While I’m stumbling home as drunk as I/ Have ever been and I’ll never leave again
‘Cause you are the only one.’
1’s are prone to addictions and have a lifelong journey around co-dependence vs independence (the healthy choice is inter-dependence).

James Taylor’s Fire and Rain ‘Won’t you look down upon me, Jesus/ You’ve got to help me make a stand/ You’ve just got to see me through another day.’ 1s are unbeatable when they trust in Source – James is a 28/10/1 lifepath and I love this song’s quiet power.|

Eminem’s Lose Yourself ‘Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity/ To seize everything you ever wanted/ In one moment
Would you capture it, or just let it slip?
Also a 28/10/1 – so eloquent!

Alanis Morissette’s Hand in My PocketI’m high but I’m grounded/ I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed’ She is a 28/10/1 lifepath and started a unforgettable trend of honesty in music in the 1990’s.

Lady GaGa’s Born This Way ‘I’m beautiful in my way/ Cause God makes no mistakes/ I’m on the right track, baby/I was born this way’ 1 is about confidence in your individuality – Lady GaGa is a 37/10/1 lifepath, which is the later-blooming version of a 28/10/1.

I almost included Metallica’s One, which is about war (1 is about life and death) but it was a bit dark compared to the songs above.

In Conclusion
I hope you’ve enjoyed this explanation and musical exploration of 111 numerology. Obviously there are many interpretations but I’ve been as detailed as I can be without writing a textbook.
