An Angel Numbers Guide
Everything around us has energy, including plants, colors, people, animals, and numbers. Angels often use the energy that certain things carry to send us messages from the Divine. And the most common way that messages are sent to us is via numbers because we tend to notice them more than other signs.
Regardless of our differing faiths here on earth, we are all connected to the Divine source. And the Divine attempts to communicate with us via different signs. The angel numbers are constructed on the concept of numerology, which attributes certain characteristics, or energy, to specific numbers.
The purpose of your angels sending you numbers is to assist you in creating a beautiful life that you can live with joy and a sense of fulfillment. If you’ve gone off track, lost your way, or are hurting in some way, your angels send you numbers to try and guide you in the right direction, heal you, and help you.
Of course, it’s up to you whether you decide to take the advice or not. Ultimately, we all have free will and you decide what you want to manifest in your life.
You may also receive messages when things are going really well and you are receiving confirmation that you are on the right track. Either way, the signs often show up just before a period of transformation.
Just know that if you are repeatedly seeing the same number over and over again, it’s a sure sign your angels are urging you to take notice of something. So, it’s wise to get yourself an angel numbers guide and raise your awareness.
Angel numbers guide – What do the angel numbers mean?
In order to understand what the different angel numbers you receive could mean in your life, you first have to understand the significance of numbers in numerology – the language of numbers. However, knowing what energy each number carries is not enough, you also need to be able to tap into your intuition in order to understand what this message means for you, specifically.
According to numerology, each person has five “core” numbers, namely the life path, soul urge, personality, birthday, and expression numbers. Your core numbers are deduced by reducing your birth date and name down into a single or double figure. Each letter in your name has a certain number value too.
The most significant number out of all the core numbers is your life path number, which is found by adding up the numbers of your birth date.
The soul number is connected to your core beliefs or your inner truth. To work out your soul number, you add up the value of all the vowels in your name.
The personality number is determined by the sum of the consonants in your full name and provides insight about your character.
The expression number is determined by adding up all the numbers of your full name. The expression number reveals your talents and is concerned with your fate in life.
Lastly, the birthday number is the day you were born, which reveals how others see you.
Besides the core numbers that are associated with your specific journey in life, the angels send you different numbers from time to time when they are trying to convey a message. These numbers, usually repeating numbers, such as 111, or 222, 1616, etc., have unique messages from the Divine that are sent to guide and comfort you.
These number sequences are often sent when we are going through something challenging, at a crossroads, or experiencing some sort of transformation.
Angel numbers guide – where do I find angel numbers?
Now, you might be wondering, what are my numbers and what do they mean?
Well, there’s no set place where you’ll find angel numbers, but, for example, you may notice the same number when you look at your clock on your phone, on a door, on a license plate, in a book, or in a dream.
There are endless possibilities for places to receive angel numbers.
Angel numbers guide – Single-digit numbers
Number 1 is associated with maintaining a positive attitude and proceeding courageously through life. It carries the energy of new beginnings and having the courage to trust oneself to make decisions and do the right thing.
This number indicates that it’s an auspicious time to begin a new journey, business venture or relationship, or change career. Be sure to leave your past behind when you do.
Number 2 is all about looking inwards and assessing where you’re at and how far you’ve come. You receive this number when your angels want you to gain perspective and consider life from the bigger-picture viewpoint.
Through this number, you are being urged to be a little more self-reflective.
Sometimes, you receive the number 2 when you have lost track of your sense of self and have allowed yourself to be influenced by other people rather than trusting your inner voice. Your angels are reminding you that when you truly look within, you will realize how much you already know and that you don’t need to rely on others.
Angel number 3 is a symbol of truth. It initiates a time of embracing new opportunities and owning who you are. It symbolizes mind, body, soul, and living truthfully, with all three in alignment, will bring about a much deeper connection to life and to the Divine.
If you’re receiving the number 3 from your angels, it’s time to really consider how authentic you are and whether what you say lines up with how you act as well as how you feel. Identifying the truth of who you are, at the very core of your being, is the first step towards contentment and spiritual enlightenment.
Number 4 vibrates with the energy of laying down foundations and support structures. This number is concerned with your home life, your relationships, and your family.
These elements are the foundation of your happiness and if you’ve been neglecting this area of your life, then number 4 is a sign that you need to put in more effort.
This also applies to your relationship with yourself. Are you caring for yourself in the same way that you care for others? Do you speak kindly to yourself? Do you allow yourself moments of relaxation and joy?
If you’ve answered no to these questions, you may be receiving a message from your angels that you need to focus more on self-love and what’s really important.
When number 5 shows up in your life, it’s a definite sign that big changes are due to shake you out of the rut you’ve been stuck in.
All that old, heavy, dark energy that you have been mulling in is about to be cleared out by the winds of change that number 5 carries. Your angels are sending you this number as a sign of encouragement to accept the changes that come your way and trust that they are being Divinely supported.
Making wise decisions about where and how you invest your precious time on earth is what the number 6 is all about. In essence, this number calls for more balance in all areas of your life.
Your angels want you to do an audit of your time and figure out what you spend the most time doing and who you spend it with. If you do this and realize that most of your time is spent in activities that are not actually that important to you, then it’s time to use the power of number 6 to bring about more balance in your life.
For most people, it’s about creating a healthier work-life balance, but it can be about balance in any area.
The number 7 is a very lucky number to receive because it means good things are on the way. Knowing this, you can take a break from trying so hard and allow yourself to rest a little. This number is almost like receiving permission from the Universe to put your life on pause while you recuperate.
The purpose of this pause is to renew and revitalize yourself. So, receiving number 7 is a wonderful omen that you get to take a break from some of the troubles of life. Doing this will free up the space as well as provide the energy needed for discovering your purpose on earth.
When the number 8 shows up in your life, it’s usually a sign of challenges or setbacks. However, it doesn’t indicate further despair; rather, it’s a sign of encouragement from your angels of the infinity of life and that everything moves in cycles.
This means that it’s inevitable that the bad times you may be experiencing will, at some point, resolve and you will move into a period of good experiences. Number 8 is a reminder that life is indeed cyclical and infinite.
So when the angels send you 8s, don’t despair; have faith that soon all will be well.
The number 9 holds the energy of compassion, both for oneself and for others. The angels invoke number 9 when you are being called to have deeper compassion and be a little more gentle in your approach.
Accepting and understanding your own inadequacies and failures will help you accept the same flaws in others. With 9s comes the message of opening and softening your heart to be more accepting of other people.
Once you seek out the innate compassion you already possess and open that door, it will begin to pour out naturally and freely.
When 0s appear as messages from the angels, they come as hopeful symbols of the infinite love being bestowed upon you. It’s often a sign that the Universe is in agreement with your actions and you are receiving a Divine blessing.
It can also simply be a reminder of a Godly presence in your life. Receiving the number 0 is truly a blessing and is considered a spiritual gift.
Angel numbers guide – Repeating numbers
Repeating number sequences carry double or triple the energy of the single-digit angel numbers. So whatever message the single digit holds is further amplified when the number is repeated. Here’s a summary of some of the repeating number sequences.
11, 111, 1111
When number 1 appears in duplicate or triplicate, etc, it indicates that great manifestation is taking place. Whatever it is you’ve been wishing for and constantly thinking about is about to come to fruition – positive or negative.
It makes sense, then, that when you see this number sequence you pay serious attention to your thoughts to ensure that you manifest good things.
22, 222, 2222
Repeating 2s are a sign of transforming your dreams into reality. Whether those dreams are concerning your love life, your career, or your platonic relationships, the presence of the 2s indicates that you should take action and make things happen.
33, 333, 3333
Repeated 3sare a sure sign of Divine support and protection to give the receiver the strength to communicate and guide others. The 3s vibrate with the energy of communication and working together, so when they start appearing, it’s a gentle nudge of encouragement to develop your communication skills and try to work better with others.
44, 444, 4444
Repeating 4s are a sign of the presence of angels. Any fears, doubts, or insecurities you’ve been feeling can be released because your angels are right beside you, guiding your way. If you feel doubtful of this, use prayer to request that your angels show their presence.
The 4s often show up during times of difficulty, and you may feel that you are being tested or challenged on all fronts. But these numbers showing up are a sign that all will be well soon, just have faith and stay hopeful.
55, 555, 5555
It’s time to prepare for big changes to occur when you start seeing repeating 5 sequences. It may not feel like a welcome change, but know that it is for your own good.
Maybe the Universe is encouraging you to release your attachment to certain things and people that no longer serve you. This may seem scary at first, but allowing the changes to unfold will culminate in greater happiness for everyone involved.
66, 666, 6666
Repeating 6s are often a reminder to recognize your own worthiness. If your self-confidence and feelings of self-worth have deteriorated, your angels send you number 6 sequences as a call to lift yourself up again. You can consider a 6 sequence as a self-esteem booster sent from your angels.
If you’ve been judging yourself based on how you are of service to others, then you are receiving these messages as a reminder that you are worthy just as you are.
77, 777, 7777
Double, tripled, or quadrupled 7s are a sign that you should expect something miraculous to happen in your life soon. The number 7 is a miraculous number on its own and in a sequence, such as in 77 or 777, its fortunate energy is extremely powerful.
88, 888, 8888
Repeating 8s signify that you are carrying too much; you are holding other people’s worries and making them your own. And while that is not always a bad thing, in your case, you need a break because you have taken on too many emotional burdens.
It’s wonderful to help others, but not to the extent that you damage yourself in the process. So when you see repeating 8s, look for areas of your life where you can cut back. Just finding small ways to do less can make a major difference to your life and allow you to rejuvenate and restore your spirit.
99, 999, 9999
The 9s in a sequence indicate the coming to an end of something – either a relationship, a job, or a living situation, etc. It’s a good sign because whatever you are moving on to is going to be bigger and better. It’s wise not to resist but rather to embrace this ending and appreciate what you learnt from the situation/person.
Let go of your past and all the baggage that you have been carrying around for years and step into the new way of being that the Universe is offering you now. You are being presented with so many new and exciting opportunities so make the most of it.
Often, lightworkers, people who come to heal the earth, are associated with the number 9 sequences. If this resonates with you, it’s a sign your angels are encouraging you to start living in accordance with your purpose.
00, 000, 000
When you see the 0s, know that you are receiving numbers with powerful vibrations. The infinite nature of the 0s indicate that some aspect of your life is coming full circle. The 0 sequences bring messages related to karma, the cycle of life, and the central presence of God in your life. This is truly a blessing and the first place you should always turn to in times of trouble.
Repeating 0s essentially hold messages concerning your spirituality, intuition, and connection to all things mystical and spiritual.
Other spiritual signs from your angels
While numbers are the most commonly used signs to convey messages from your angels, they also communicate via other methods. For example, they will draw your attention to elements in nature, such as feathers, lights, and rainbows; or they will use animals, such as butterflies or birds; or they will even use coins that you will find in your pathway.
Whatever you are repeatedly seeing that is accompanied by a feeling in your gut of something more, is usually a message from the Divine realm. Each person’s experience will be unique; some people will see things, others will hear things, and some may just have a feeling.
If you’re looking for guidance, the important thing is to be aware and remain open and receptive.
If you haven’t been looking for guidance, but are seeing signs repeatedly, it may be the Universe’s way of trying to guide you in a certain direction. They usually show up when you are most in need of some Divine support, like when you’re going through a crisis in a relationship or at work or you have to make a major decision.
Other signs that angels are active in your life is when an unexplained healing occurs or something miraculous happens. But the indication of angels working in your life can be much more subtle – you can receive messages in your dreams, have a flash of knowing or inspiration, hear a comment, or read something that suddenly sparks a feeling of recognition in you.
How to ask your angels for guidance
If you want to form a deeper connection with the Divine and receive clearer guidance from your angels, the first step is ensuring your energy is on the right vibrational level. Raising your vibrations will make you more receptive to the metaphysical world and, therefore, to the angels’ guidance.
If you are weighed down by negative, heavy energy, you will not have the capacity to welcome the light of the angels into your life. So, you’ll need to do the work necessary to elevate your vibrations first.
A simple way to raise your energetic vibrations is through meditation or prayer, or spending time out in natural surroundings. These will all help to quieten your mind and center yourself.
If it’s challenging for you to quieten your mind in this way, sometimes just focusing on your breath, closing your eyes, and using visualization can help. Imagine you are surrounded by white light and feel the light clearing out all areas of darkness within you.
Don’t get discouraged if it takes you a while to get the hang of it; the more you do it, the more skilled you will become.
This process will slowly help you open yourselves up to the mystical and magical aspects of the Universe and once you do this, you will realize the interconnectedness of life as well how present the angels are in your life.
Once your vibrations have been elevated, the next step is actually asking your angels for help. Although your angels are always with you, asking for help with specific things will provide greater clarity to you too about what you want from a situation or person.
There isn’t a specific way to ask, just be clear about your intentions. It’s also important to have faith that your challenges will be resolved.
The final step in asking for help is opening your heart and being open to receiving the guidance, whether you agree with it or not. Sometimes, things may not make sense to us in the moment, but it’s all part of the Universe’s plan for us, so be open to anything that arises.
Once you’ve asked for guidance, it’s important to then look out for signs. The signs may be subtle, and if you’re living a hectic life, you may fail to notice them. But be sure to make the most of the opportunities you are being offered by this Divine intervention.
If you’re feeling disconnected and discouraged, the best thing to do is to focus on love. That includes love for yourself as well as for others. Doing this will result in everything else falling into place.
A helpful spiritual tool is to use visualization to help you center yourself in love energy and, subsequently, open up your connection to the Divine and your angels. Love is associated with the heart chakra, which is green, so visualize yourself bathed in a green light that slowly encompasses your whole being and pulsates with the energy of love.
This practise will help you deepen your connection to Source and the angels.

Opening your mind and heart to receive any form of communication from your angels will only assist you on your journey to healing and transformation.
