What does seeing 111 really mean?
If you’re seeing repeating numbers like 111, it means that you’re being guided by a higher power—your guardian angels—through life.
It’s for this reason that they are called angel numbers.
Every angel number has a meaning or idea associated with it. And if you can understand what they mean when you notice their presence in your life, then they can guide you through life.
111 is the number associated with creation.
It is an ascendant of the number 1, which is associated with new beginnings and leadership.
And when you add up the numbers in 111 together, you end up with 3, which is a number associated with creativity, imagination, as well as optimism.
5 reasons why you keep seeing 111
Now that you know what angel number 111 is all about, you might be wondering about why you might be seeing it. Well, it could be for one or more of the following reasons.
1) You need to develop your potential
You have a skill or talent that you have been neglecting. Perhaps you never saw much sense in developing it in the first place, or perhaps you had indulged in it before but had to stop for one reason or another.
Seeing the number 111 is a sign from the universe that you need to stop neglecting that skill or talent of yours. Pick up that brush you had left sitting in the basement since you were ten, or perhaps go take a shovel and work on your yard.
The number 111 is one of creation, and the universe is telling you to create.
2) You need to reach out to others
Sometimes, the issue is not so much that you’re neglecting your talents as you are hiding them away from the world.
The reasons may vary, and they are all valid. You might be afraid that you’re not that good, and that people will mock you if you bare your creations to the world. Or you might have been attacked before for even having such a talent.
The universe is trying to tell you that you should conquer your fears and share your creations with the outside world.
Perhaps it knows you’ve been stuck in a rut, or that you’re not making as much out of your skills as you could have. Or maybe it knows that your creations will help someone with their own troubles.
Go ahead and connect to the world using whatever skill or talent you have. 111 is your angel telling you that you truly have it in you, that people are actually waiting for it.
3) You’re ready to make a difference
The word ‘creation’ brings to mind the act of making something material and tangible, like a painting or a sculpture. Some might be reminded of the book of Genesis, where God made the world we now live in out of nowhere.
But exacting a change upon the world around you also counts as creation.
When you inspire others to do better, to pick up a cause, or to exercise their abilities, you are doing an act of creation. When you help others smile and hope, you are also doing an act of creation.
Rather than making something tangible, however, you are creating an idea that can then spread to others.
You might also expect to see the number 1 by itself, in this case standing for its meaning of leadership.
But whether you’ll turn out to be a leader or not, what’s clear is that you’re ready to contribute something to the world.
Don’t hold back, don’t have an ounce of doubt. You’re ripe and ready to do what you’re supposed to do.
4) You are ready for a new start
After a certain point, life becomes a routine with the same old thing happening day in and day out.
Sometimes that predictability can be comforting, sometimes it can be boring. It’s the universe letting you rest and build up the strength you need to forge on ahead to new horizons.
The number 111’s presence in your life is a call to arms, telling you that you’re ready to get out of the routine you have fallen into and to start something new with your life.
It might seem like an inconvenience to do so, especially if you quite enjoyed your routine. But if you don’t heed the Universe’s call to action, your life is going to stagnate and degenerate.
Creation is not all about talent and big life calling, it can be the creation of your life, too. Seeing 111 is a sign that you’re about to redesign your life and that you’re about to say goodbye to the old version of you.
Don’t worry too much about the changes you’ll experience. They’re just growing pains necessary for you to live a richer life.
5) You’re poised to take opportunities that life throws at you
A reason why you’re seeing 111 is because you are in the right place and time to take the opportunities life is throwing at you.
It is right in the middle between the number 1, which represents new beginnings and leadership, and the number 3, which represents creativity and optimism.
The numbers 1 and 3 are converging upon your person.
The energy of optimism surrounds you, putting you in the right state of mind to see and make the most out of the gifts the universe is sending your way. And things that you have done in the past are now ready to bear fruit, surrounding you with opportunities that are ripe for the picking.
Whatever you do, do keep in mind that whatever decisions you make today determine the tomorrow you’ll receive.
Spiritual meaning of seeing 111
The number 111 is a high vibrational number that symbolizes spiritual awakening focused on creation. It follows the number 000, which symbolizes infinite, untapped potential.
The relationship between 000 and 111 thus reflects the realization of potential, the materialization of a concept as it is drawn out of nothingness.
If 000 is a lump of clay, then 111 is the vase or sculpture that was shaped out of it by your own two hands.
It symbolizes the idea that your intentions and desires shape your reality. That your energy flows wherever your thoughts go.
The meaning of 111 in religion
Different cultures and religions have their own idea for what each of these numbers mean. Sometimes, these numbers are sacred and revered. Sometimes, they are ominous omens.
The presence and role of the number 111 is somewhat vague in the Bible. It is, however, associated with the Second Coming of Christ.
- Acts 1:11
“… This same Jesus, Who was taken up from you into heaven, shall come in exactly the same manner as you have seen Him go into heaven…”
It is also associated with leadership, and of the consequences of sin. In the book of Chronicles, the number 111 is associated with the verse where all of Israel recognizes King David as their rightful ruler.
- 1Chronicles 11:1
All Israel came together to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. … And the LORD your God said to you, `You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler. ‘”
In the book of kings, the number 1:11 is associated with the legitimacy of Solomon’s rule, through the prophet Nathan warning Solomon’s mother Bathsheba of a plot by King David’s son Adonijah to take the throne.
- 1Kings 1:11
And Nathan spoke to Bathsheba . . . “Have you not heard that Adonijah the son of Haggith reigns and David our Lord does not know? . . .”
The related number 1111 then shows up when Solomon loses God’s favor.
- 1Kings 11:11
And the Lord said to Solomon, “Since this (idolatry) has been done by you, and since you have not kept My covenant and My statutes . . . I will surely tear the kingdom from you.”
Angel number 111’s meaning in love
Angel number 111 is a sign that your love life is about to take a turn for the better. As mentioned before, the number 111 represents creation, and is associated with the number 1, which stands for new beginnings.
At a glance, the idea of a ‘new beginning’ might sound ominous, especially when you’re in a relationship that has been doing well for quite some time. You might worry that your SO will have a sudden change of heart.
That may be the case for some, but it’s highly unlikely. 111 is a bearer of good changes!
This could mean your relationship is about to enter a new phase.
It could be that you are about to create something new out of what you already have built up together.
It could mean that you’ll pursue a new business venture, buy a property, or even bear a child.
Seeing angel number 111 is definitely a good sign if you’re in a good relationship. And oh, if you’re in a bad one, too! It could be a signal from the universe that your issues will finally be resolved soon or if not that, that you’ll end things amicably (and it will not be as painful as you think).
Whatever it may be, seeing angel number 111 is always, always, always a good sign that better things are coming.
Number 111 meaning in numerology
In numerology, the number 111 is called the number of sacred creation, and is related to the numbers 1, 11, 1111, and 3.
There is some overlap between the meanings held by each of these numbers. That overlap is especially strong between 1, 111, and 3, with the number 111 serving to bridge the gap between 1 and 3, and thereby link their meanings together.
It is a sign that you are ready to exercise your potential for creation, not only for the creative pursuits championed by the number 3, but also in the leadership roles championed by the number 1.
You can take up a cause or pick up a new hobby.
What exactly the universe wants you to create will be clarified by trying to understand the other numbers that manifest side by side with 111. So be very aware of the other numbers that the universe throws your way. They will create your roadmap to a much better life.
The relevance of 111 in law of attraction
Being associated with the act of creation, the presence of the number 111 means it’s the perfect time for you to manifest and draw on the law of attraction.
It takes a lot of energy to manifest and draw on positivity, but if you do so while engaged in the act of creation, then you will imprint those energies upon your creation.
Positivity begets positivity, and people will feel your energies when you show them something made with positive intentions.
Erase all doubts you have with your invention, art, recipe or business venture!
You have to claim that it’s something worthwhile to be out in the world because IT IS!
The Universe has been waiting for you to do it. It’s now opening its hand and telling you it’s time. Do not doubt your calling and success will be yours.
Is seeing angel number 111 good or bad?
Simply put, the number 111 is a positive omen.
There’s no need to fear it, should you begin seeing it everywhere in your life.
111 is a number of creation…of forward motion.
The worst it can bring to you would be annoyance or frustration if your life has been easy and enjoyable so far. It forces you to do the necessary work, which could be inconvenient, for sure.
But that frustration is temporary, as the positive effects that you will gain from change and motion will far outweigh the negative effects that stagnation and an easy life will bring.
What should you do if you keep seeing 111?
Say yes to things you usually say no to. Go left if you usually go right. You have to make some small changes in your life that could be a great catalyst for a bigger change. Good things are coming but you have to meet it halfway.
Think about your skills and talents, and give some love to that which you have been neglecting. Dust off that easel in the attic, spin up that lathe, or take your pen to paper. The possibilities are endless.
Your potential for creation is high, and it’s wise to make sure you’re spending that potential on something that will have a positive impact on you and the people around you in the long run.
Teaching is also an act of creation. You’re sharing ideas, knowledge, and wisdom, and shaping minds in the process. There are few things in this world more noble than teaching.
You need to trust yourself. It’s perfectly normal to doubt yourself when you’re in the process of creation, to never feel like it’s good enough. Criticism—which you will inevitably get—will also hurt. But trust in yourself, and use what criticism you get to make yourself better.
Fight for a cause
Every single one of us has the potential for creation, and that potential is exercised when we’re making our voices heard. Whether it’s fighting for nature, defending human rights, or taking a stand in politics, you’re adding your potential to everyone else’s and every single bit matters.

Angel number 111 is a message from the universe that you need to move, to create, to start anew.
You can always elect to ignore the signs and to throw away the opportunities you are being given. The universe isn’t going to make you do something you’re not willing to do. However, there is nothing to gain in doing so.
Opportunities abound, and you’re being told that you should go and take them before they’re gone.
Seeing 111 and letting it guide you as you forge a new path may involve having to break free from your comforting and seemingly stable life and dive into the unknown, but it will all be worth it in the end. You will see.
