How Angel Numbers Work & What They Mean

Have you ever wondered how angel numbers work? Maybe you’ve heard of messages we get from our guardian angels. Perhaps you have no idea what this term means but you’ve found yourself seeing a pattern of numbers EVERYWHERE. So much so that it feels strange, like maybe there’s more to it than a random set of numbers. 

Maybe the first time you checked your phone it was exactly 3:33. Then, something you bought was 33.3. Later on, a voice message sent to you was 3:33 minutes long. 

It might seem like a simple strange coincidence,

but that’s not necessarily true

If you’re randomly seeing a certain set of numbers everywhere you turn. Perhaps, it’s the universe, your spirit guides, angels, or whatever you like to call them, trying to tell you something. That’s how angel numbers work, they show up as a reminder of what your guides want you to know. 

Although there are ways for us to connect to our spirit guides, most humans are not consciously in contact with their spiritual guides. But they’re constantly communicating with us or trying to, through our intuition, through the little voices in our heads, or sometimes through sending us physical signs, like angel numbers. 

So, if you ever see a set of numbers everywhere you go again, or you randomly feel called to a certain number, trust your intuition. It’s probably more than just a number. Maybe it’s a message you desperately need to hear.
