Remember when you see 11:11 you are in the presence of peace.
My mom passed away on 9/20/18. As the first anniversary of her passing approached, I began seeing 11:11 on my cell phone, the cable box, and my clock radio. I was missing my mom terribly, and the first anniversary seemed to make me more emotional than I was when she passed.
I don’t know what made me start searching the Internet about the meaning of seeing 11:11, but I did. I have never put much stock in astrology or numerology, but I figured it couldn’t hurt. There were so many different possibilities to explain why I was seeing 11:11, from it being an opportunity portal, that everything is a result of my thoughts and feelings, I am on a path to awakening, or that I am supposed to make a wish.
[On a side note – I was clueless about the 11:11 wish and how many people actually make them. That is until I started my search, then one day I won a signed copy of The 11:11 Wish by Kim Tomsic by entering a Twitter contest. More about this later.]
The meaning that hit home for me though was the one that said a deceased loved one was sending me a message. Now that was something I knew could be true. You see my mother’s birthday was 11/11/27. Whenever anyone asked her when her birthday was, she would rattle off the rhyme with a smile.
11:11 has a new twist. Now when I see those numbers appear, I take it as a sign that my mom is with me, letting me know that things will be OK, and reminding me that I am strong enough to handle whatever life is flinging my way. She was always so positive and peaceful no matter what she was facing, never complaining, never forgetting to celebrate each day. She was my biggest cheerleader and confidante. And although there is a running family joke about who was her “favorite,” we all know in our hearts that she loved each of us just the way we each needed to be loved and was proud of the adults we had become and lives we made for ourselves.We don’t need a number to tell us that.
So today, on what would have been her 92nd birthday, I am sad that she is not here physically, but I will celebrate knowing that she is always close to my heart and still guiding me and cheering me on.
[I won a copy of the book when I retweeted the tweet and told the author 11:11 was my mom’s birthday. Thanks Kim!]
