11-11-11: The Dawn of A Global Gathering by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman

On November 11, 2011, or 11-11-11, people all over the world will celebrate a day of spiritual beginnings that many believe will usher in a vastly new and different reality. And yet for others, this will be a day like any other, albeit one with really cool numbers. Whenever we encounter a date in history with an unusually synchronistic sequence, such as 10-10-10, or 12-12-12, we often find reason to gather and celebrate, even as others might fear the dates as harbingers or warnings of bad times ahead. Our inherent understanding of the powerful symbolism of number drives us to perceive these special “dates” as though they truly have the ability to usher in a transformation change. But do they? Try as we did, we could not find a real “solid” origin or source of the importance behind this date...or even the number sequence itself, other than the fact that it looks really good. And yet, so many believe differently…



11-11-11 gatherings are planned at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, California; in Egypt near the great pyramids; at the mystical mecca of Sedona, Arizona; near Lake Titicaca in Bolivia; in an arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; at an ancient ruin site in Chiapas, Mexico; at a farm in Namibia; at the Stanton Drew Stone Circle in Bristol, England and a number of other places around the world. There are full moon meditations and global prayer chains. There are pilgrimages and cruises to mysterious places and hikes to mountaintops, all planned on this particular day in history. There will be partying, rejoicing, and general debauchery commencing on this day…a day that many have falsely stated will only happen once (it happened on 11-11-011, and again on 11-11-1011, but we weren’t around to party then!). There are also huge “online” parties planned on Facebook and Twitter, with millions of people already buzzing about the coming date, a date many associate with the concept of human ascension, when humanity will collectively rise up from an old paradigm and embrace a new one based upon a more compassionate and humane foundation. Some people are looking at the current economic chaos and global protests as “birth pangs” of this new dawn.  For others, it’s just a fun way to come together and joyously celebrate just being alive in these exciting times.

But why 11-11-11? Why is there so much excitement and anticipation for this date of 11-11-11 over any other? Why did we not get excited a year ago on 10-10-10, or the year before on 09-09-09? And why is there nothing big planned for 12-12-12?

Many 2012 researchers point to the number association with the 11:11“time prompt” phenomenon as one possibility. Millions of people worldwide experience what are known as “11:11 time prompts,” repeated number sequences on clocks, receipts, signs, readouts and anywhere else numbers can appear. These prompts might be pokes and wake up calls from a higher source and spirit guides or a shout-out from the Universe itself, urging us to pay attention, get prepared, be ready for something big.

And that something big is the 12-21-2012 end date itself. Have you ever wondered WHY it is considered so big? Well, according to the popular interpretation of one particular Mayan calendar, the Winter Solstice begins precisely at 11:11am GMT on December 21, 2012, marking the end of the calendar…thus the interest in anything 11:11 or even 11-11-11.We seem to gravitate to this number sequence more so than any other.

Interestingly, the number 11 itself doesn’t appear to be very symbolic or profound…until you realize some of the bizarre mathematical attributes it presents. Using Base 10 system, the number 11, which is the sixth prime number, becomes a bit more mysterious the more you repeat its digits.

(2 digits) 11 x 11 = 121

(6 digits) 111111 x 111111 = 12345654321

 (9 digits) 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

In a numerological sense, adding up the digits behind 11-11-11 gets you a master number of six, unless you go by the full date of 11-11-2011, which gets you an 8, thus confusing matters even more. So do we focus on the meaning behind the 11’s themselves, or the collective 6, or the 8? Maybe we just like fancy, cool dates because it’s fun to apply meaning to any day and remove ourselves temporarily from the “Groundhog Day” sensation that each day is like the one before it.

Perhaps the pattern itself holds the key. From a mechanistic standpoint, the human brain is hard-wired to seek and find patterns wherever it can, in order to understand a complex situation or arrangement. Once it finds a pattern it runs with it, seeing it everywhere and giving it meaning that may not have really existed in the first place. It is very likely that this innate ability is a primitive survival mechanism remaining from our prehistoric ancestors, when it was important to discern a stampeding boar from a pet goat in the dense underbrush. This phenomenon, known in the paranormal community as “matrixing,” or more commonly “pareidolia,” is a universal human response.  Thus, a date like 11-11-11 truly resonates not only on a spiritual level, but a physical one as well. If the universal language is indeed mathematics, as scientists and physicists tell us, then what better way to influence and affect the body, mind and spirit than with numbers?

But to those who wait in anticipation to gather together, either in person or online, with other like-minded souls, 11-11-11 is more than just a brain game. It is a day that represents the opening of new doors of possibility and potentiality for the entire world, and hopefully heralds the end of the “old” world as we know it. And while there is no valid proof of this being true, if it is the intention of that many people to make it happen, then perhaps it will indeed happen… and this will be one time when the end of the world will actually be a good thing.
