Find your angel number and discover its meaning

Each person has a mission on Earth.

Some people may feel a strong sense of purpose from an early age, while others may take longer to discover what they are meant to do.

If you belong to the other group and are unsure of what path to take or the right choices to make, you can count on your personal angel number to provide you with insight, guidance, and encouragement from a higher power.

What are angel numbers? What is my angel number? You’re probably asking these questions right now. 

To start off, angel numbers are specific sequences of numbers that some people believe are messages from their angels or spirit guides.

These numbers are often seen as signs or symbols that carry a specific meaning or message intended to guide the person on their life path.

Finding your own angel number can prove to be an enlightening experience; you’ll never look at these numbers the same way again once you’re done!

There are many different ways to find your angel number. Let’s go through them one by one:

1) Your name 

One of the easiest ways to find your angel number is through your name. Write your full name and birth date down on a piece of paper. 

 When you’re done, jot down the entire alphabet, and assign a number to each letter. Do it in an ascending manner like so: 

 1-A, 2-B, 3-C, 4-D, 5-E, etc. 

Add up your first name, last name, and middle name. Reduce it to a single number. 

For example, let’s say your name is Anna Smith. Here’s how you can find your angel number: 

Step 1: Anna Smith  = 1+ 14+ 14+ 1 + 19 + 13+ 9+ 20+ 8 = 99. 

Step 2: 9 + 9=18. 

Step 3: 1 + 8=9. 

Your angel number is 9.

2) Your birth date 

To calculate your angel number using your birthdate, all you have to do is add all the digits in your month, day, and year of birth. 

For example, if you were born on February 20, 1982…

Your calculation would be 2+ 2+ 0+ 1+ 9+ 8+ 2= 24. 

Add those two individual digits together until you reach one digit. 

In this example, 6 would be the final answer—that’s your angel number!

3) Angel number calculator 

This is the third method by which we find angel numbers. All you need to do is find an angel number calculator app or website. 

Once you’ve found one, type in your birth date in the provided slots, and it’ll automatically calculate your angel number sequence. That’s it!

4) Seeing repeated numbers 

Do you keep seeing repeating numbers everywhere? Like, say, you wake up from a nap at 1:11 pm and decide to watch a documentary that’s one hour and 11 minutes long. 

You order some snacks and other stuff at the convenience store below your flat, and your receipt is $11.10. If this keeps happening to you, it is not a coincidence! 

Your guardian angels are speaking to you, the best way they know how, through synchronicity! Angels use the synchronicity of numbers to communicate divine messages. 

If the term seems unfamiliar, I’ll explain.

Based on an article on the website Psychology Today, Synchronicity is a word coined by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung to refer to events that appear to be coincidental but are believed to be meaningfully related.
Seeing a random bunch of numbers in different places sent by higher forces absolutely fits that description! 

The message behind your angel number 

Now that you know how to find your angel number, the next logical step would be to let’s find out what each angel number means: 

Single-digit angel numbers 

Let’s start with single-digit angel numbers. They are referred to as the foundation numbers. 

Why are they called so? Because every angelic number is composed of one or more of the foundation single digits, which are numbers 1 to 9.

Let’s uncover together the meaning of these numerals:

Angel number 1 

Does the number 1 seem to follow you everywhere you go? Get ready for a new beginning, then!

Angel number 1 stands for a period of starting over and moving. You’ll see this number when it’s the right time in your life to change careers or begin a new project. 

Angel number 1 also comes with high energy vibrations; it’s brimming with a ton of positive energy. 

When angels send you the number 1, it could also be a message to put more faith in your ability to succeed and to have confidence in yourself. You’ve got this! 

Angel number 2 

If you always see the number 2, your guardian angel is telling you to chill! 

Your angel is urging you to control your temper. How you react to a particular situation will have a significant impact on your future, so be careful! 

You don’t want a bad temper to ruin your personal or professional connections.

Your guardian angel is also trying to tell you to start helping others and do good deeds for people whenever you can. 

Doing so will make you a better person, and it’ll help get rid of all the negative emotions in your heart, too.

The meaning and symbolism of angel number 2 are those of harmony, diplomacy, intuition, service, receptivity, and love. 

Angel number 3 

If you repeatedly see the angel number 3 at random, your guardian angel is telling you to follow your instincts and inner wisdom. If you do this, you will get the outcome that you desire. 

Why is this so? Because angel number 3 represents a time of personal development, maturity, and growth. Maybe you’ve been following things by the book too much, and it hasn’t helped you as much as it should. 

Your guardian angel is reminding you to not be afraid to seek help from others, too! 

BUT, at the same time, don’t let other people tell you what to do as well. 

No one controls you, so it’s all up to you to take advantage of good opportunities as they come.

Angel number 4 

Do you always see the number 4? You better wake up and pay attention, then!

Angel number 4’s significance is unique in that it urges swift action. Your guardian angel is telling you to put your life in order NOW.

They’re also telling you to be more productive and manage your time wisely. Now’s the time to develop your skills and be the person you are meant to be.  

If you’re in a difficult situation, the number 4 is telling you not to take shortcuts. You need to take the challenging road to achieve your goals. Do not go for the easy way out. 

Angel number 5

If you notice the number 5 appearing everywhere you go, your guardian angel is giving you a bit of tough love.

If you’ve invested too much in an unhealthy romantic relationship or if you’ve been living your life focused on acquiring material comforts, listen up. 

Your angel is telling you you’ve been living your life unbalanced, and only by living a balanced life can a person be happy.

Angel number 6 

If you keep seeing the number 6, your guardian angel is reminding you of the importance of family, home, and community. It’s sent to encourage you to nurture relationships and create a strong system.

Angel Number 6’s primary meaning revolves around unconditional love, giving love, and receiving love. Take some time to consider the amount of love that is currently present in your life. 

If you feel like there isn’t much love in your life, think about how you can refill your own tank first. That way, you can give unconditionally to others from a place of abundance, not depletion.

Angel number 7

If you’re constantly seeing the number 7, your guardian angels are telling you they’re proud of you. You’ve been living out your life’s mission and inspiring others to pursue their passions with equal fervor! Bravo! 

They’re also reminding you not to be too hard on yourself. Stop worrying about the issues in your life. Rough times will pass, and better days are on the horizon. 

Angel number 8

If you see the number 8 everywhere, pop open the bubbly, because this is a very good sign. 

The number 8 is all about wealth, success, and power, and how you are responsible for having these blessings in your life.

You can make all of that materialize! A great future is guaranteed for you and the people you care about if you put in the effort today.

Your angels would also like to remind you to not stray too far from your divine life path. If you know what you’re meant to do, don’t let go of that! 

It’s okay to make a few incorrect turns every now and then, but don’t lose your way.

Angel number 9

Of all the angel numbers, angel number 9 represents the highest level of spiritual fulfillment. It is a reminder from your angels to continue on your spiritual path, and to use your God-given gifts and abilities to better the world.

Your guardian angel wants you to believe that there are people out there who need your guidance and support. This could be the universe’s way of telling you that it is finally time to dedicate your life to helping others.

Angel number 9 also frequently appears in times when you need some moral support. 

This is your angel’s way of letting you know that you are constantly in their thoughts and that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. 

Triple-digit angel numbers 

As we talked about earlier, just like single-digit numbers, triple-digit angel numbers are believed to have special meanings and messages from the angels.

Angels use the repetition of certain digits, such as 111 and 222, to emphasize their message and grab the individual’s attention. 

So, if you notice three digits in a row, don’t waste time figuring out what they mean, they’re putting in extra effort to get their message across!

Repeating numbers is believed to carry powerful energy and vibrations, and the repetition is a way for the angels to make sure the message is received. 

Let’s together discover the meanings and messages behind these powerful number sequences:

Angel number 111

This number is often seen as a sign of fresh starts and new opportunities. It may also be a reminder to trust your intuition and pay attention to your thoughts and ideas.

Angel number 222

Angel number 222 represents balance and harmony. If you keep seeing this, take it as a sign that you need to find balance in your life and let go of things that are holding you back.

Angel number 333 

This number brings with it a message of guidance and protection. Even though it may not feel that way sometimes, your angels are with you and helping you navigate your current situation.

Angel number 444 

444 represents home, its solid foundations, and the warm and calm feeling it invokes. The angels are telling you that you are safe and loved exactly as you are. 

Think about how the number 444 has been appearing in your life. Those are the areas where the angels are sending you big ways of compassion. 

Angel number 555

Been seeing 555 a lot lately? You’ve probably been worrying about the past and wondering whether you’ve made the right decisions. 

Your angels are telling you to get back and focus on the present. There’s no sense in crying over spilled milk. You will get your answers soon!

Angel number 666

No, this isn’t an omen of bad luck. Far from it! 

Angel number 666 means you should be more conscious of what you are thinking and realign your thoughts with your future plans and goals. 

Aside from organizing your thought patterns, the angels are urging you to use your caregiving instincts to help those in need.  

Angel number 777

We’ve all heard about lucky number 7. Well, there’s actually some truth in that. 

777 is considered a powerful and spiritual number in many cultures and belief systems. It’s often seen as a sign of divine guidance and is believed to indicate that you are on the right path in your spiritual journey.

Angel number 888

Here’s another number you should be happy to see. 

The number 888 is often associated with the concept of infinity and the abundance of positive energy and blessings. It is seen as a powerful symbol of abundance and prosperity, both financially and spiritually. 

If you see the number 888, it could mean that your material and financial needs will be met, and that you’re on the right path to achieving your goals and dreams.

Angel number 999

999 is often associated with the idea of completion or finality. It is used to indicate that a phase or cycle in your life is coming to an end and that you are moving on to the next one.

Seeing the number 999 is also believed to be a message from the angels, reminding you that they are with you and that you can trust in the path that you are on.

Things to do when you see angel numbers 

When you see an angel number, here are a few things you can do to make the most out of your situation and connect with your guardian angel: 

1) Relax your mind

When you see an angel number, it is a sign that your guardian angel is trying to get to you. It might seem a bit overwhelming at first, but don’t let your feelings get to you. 

But  you won’t hear anything if you’re anxious or stressed out. Take a few slow, deep breaths, try and meditate and move on to the second step.

2) Focus on your feelings 

Trust your intuition and pay attention to how the numbers make you feel. If the message behind the number resonates with you, it may be a sign that it is meant to guide you on your life path. 

3) Ask your guardian angel for help 

Talk to your guardian angel, ask him or her for guidance. Say what you want to say out loud, or silently repeat it in your mind. Once you’ve asked for guidance, start to look for answers in your everyday life.

4) Look around 

Be mindful of your surroundings. Pay close attention to the people and things around you. There may be a message in what you see and hear. Keep a journal to document your experiences. Angels talk to people in different ways! 

Before you know it, you’ve already developed a deeper understanding of the meanings and messages associated with angel numbers. 

5) Be critical and practical 

Reflect on your current situation and see if the message of the number resonates with you. 

Sometimes, repetitive numbers could also be a coincidence or a result of something that has nothing to do with spirituality or angels, such as a glitch in a digital clock or a license plate that keeps catching your eye.

Fooling yourself when you already know the truth will only be useless, it’s important to know the difference, which is what articles like this are here for. 


In today’s chaotic world, many people may turn to beliefs such as angel numbers as a way to find comfort, guidance, and reassurance.

The belief in angel numbers can provide a sense of hope and a connection to something greater than oneself.

However, it’s important to remember that an angel number is a tool, not a plan or some sort of magic spell to fix things. 

No one can tell you what “that” right thing to do is; you have the inner wisdom to know. The power you need for your life’s journey comes from within; this is part of recognizing and accepting who you are in your complete being. 

This means you can make your own choices based on what feels right in your heart. Combine that with the effectiveness of angel numbers, and you’ll never be led astray!
