I read two very interesting articles on the 11:11 phenomenon this past week. First and foremost, the 2012 end date of the Mayan Calendar is on many people's mind. I wrote about it here. I also reviewed a book on the subject, which can be found here. But, I came across something even more interesting regarding the 12/21/2012 date. Did you know that at 11:11 UT is exactly when the winter solstice begins on this date? That maybe, it is not the date so much as the time that is of importance, because the Mayans did not refer to the beginning, middle, or end of the galactic alignment. Maybe they were trying to draw our attention to a specific cosmic event, which will occur on that date at that specific time.
Other interesting phenomena occurs with the number 11. For instance, the magnetic field of the Sun operates a cycle of polarity reversals averaging 11.11 years. The entire mass of the black hole at the center of our galaxy spins once every 11 minutes. The attack on the World Trade Center was September 11. I could go on and on.
So what does this all mean? Is it just coincidence?
Many people do not believe it is a coincidence. They see it as a cosmic prompt to wake up and see reality in a new and altered light. Steve Pavlina, in his excellent post on this subject, has suggested a small percentage of people will begin to notice the sequence of 11's more often than chance would indicate. That it might be a backdoor virus inserted through an objective belief system. Once noticed, "it begins to dismantle limiting objective beliefs, gradually supplanting them with a more accurate model of reality." He suggests that the more you try to ignore the 11s, the more insistent they become, demanding your attention, making it difficult to do business as usual, until you finally open your mind to new possibilities. He believes it is a specific frequency of awakening, but that there are others, including other recurring number patterns such as 111, 1234, or 444. That "you experience these events as a repeating glitch in the matrix of reality," jolting you into a higher level of awareness.
So what do you think? Are you one of those people who are seeing 11s everywhere? If so, you may want to read Steve's post, and note the date and time of 12/21/2012 UT on your calendar. After all, it could be a cosmic prompt.
