I know lots of people who see significant numbers everywhere they look….on clocks, receipts, in line at the grocery store. 11:11 is a common one, and when you happen to catch it, it’s supposed to be a little hello from someone you love who has died. My sister sees her birthday numbers, 3.16, as a message from our Mom, and I just read of someone who continually finds the exact hour and minute their loved one went to Heaven. I believe this stuff is real.
Myers-Briggs personality typing categorizes a person as either ‘intuitive’ or ‘sensing’ and it’s no surprise to me that I come out as strongly intuitive on every quiz I’ve taken. I just firmly believe there is so much more to the world than what we can see, and I am always on the lookout for more, and meaning, and connection, even though the ‘sensing’ people in my life probably think I’m a little crazy. Lately, I keep seeing 11:04 on the clock or my phone… my eye is just drawn there at that exact time, and has been for days, and I know I’m supposed to pay attention. November 4th is the day we celebrate my family’s Christmas; it was my Mom’s last that we had with her a day before she died. It was a magical day that is hard to describe even by the people who were there (I tried here: https://mylittleepiphanies.wordpress.com/2014/11/04/last-day/), but I would say it was the best display of the grace and generosity of God that I’ve ever seen.
Anyway, for days, I’ve been catching that time, am and pm, and it always makes me think of Christmas. My Mom loved watching us open presents she had picked out… it was probably her favorite thing in the world, and it was a very important part of that November 4th we all shared back in 2012.
So why am I seeing 11:04 now, three years later? What message could it carry? I can’t really explain it, but I have a feeling I am coming closer to a kind of Christmas in my life. I believe there are presents that God has wrapped for me and they are waiting there under a tree and He can’t wait to see me open them. I have no idea what they are, but I truly believe they’re there. Weird, right?
Wrapped in those boxes may be joy, or peace, or patience. Maybe it’s a trial that will lead to some new understanding (I hope not, but it may be). Maybe it’s a new ministry or person or song that I’m supposed to perform or know or sing. I wish I knew, but I know in my spirit that Christmas morning for me is maybe not so far away. It’s super weird, but I believe it and I smile every time I catch that 11:04 on the clock.
Where is your intuition leading you these days? Would love to hear about it in the comments…
