The number 23

Just have to note that I'm undecided about whether I want to see this new Jim Carrey movie, "The Number 23" about coincidences, symbols and the number 23. It's funny, because a few months ago, I read about the coincidences and oddities about the number 23, but I chose not to blog about it because I've no personal experience with the phenomenon. A good article about it can be found on Wikipedia here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/23_(numerology).

My personal number of coincidence is 515 which happens to be my birthday. Several times a week, at the end of the day at work, I look at the clock at exactly 5:15. Lots of other synchronicities with that number as well.

Also 11:11, which happened today though the number itself has no personal significance, I do have a friend and twin sisters born on 11/11.

I've only met one other person who comments on having a 'number' that keeps coming up. Anyone else out there with a significant number?

This is very interesting.

I started seeing number 44 after the butterfly synchronicities (see my blog) and now the number 44 synchronicity has graduated to number 444.

You want might to read the following posts about this:

the weird thing for me, when i read about that movie and then did more research, is that 23 was reoccuring in my life in weird ways. it's cool stuff - and a mindF* if you were serious enough to let it be. cool stuff - and the movie looks awesome.

ok so this is freaky and I didn't mention it before but after my whole Katrina and the waves thing, I looked at the time on my phone and it said 11:11 before it updated to the actual time. When I read the article on 11:11 it said that it is a sign from the universe to pay attention.

A New Soul said...

Also would like to hear more about the 23 occurances that you've been experiencing... are they at significant times?

Diana said...

Okay. I'm excited. Although I usually prefer Jim Carrey in comedies, this sounds really interesting. And creepy. I'm not even much of a fan of thrillers, but because it's about synchronicity and symbols, I think I'll make an exception.:)

I'm still seeing the number 13, but not as often. I've been pretty distracted lately anyway. But not the number 33.

Oh, just in case you didn't know, I'm writing about synchronicity on another blog. http://soulfulwriter.blogspot.com

I was inevitably drawn to see "The Number 23". Whether or not it was a good choice, I cannot decide. Was it a good movie? Yes. But all it did was feed my mind more of what it already seems to suffer from: synchronistic occurences. I have been seeing 11:11 and 1:11 for more than a year, almost two, really. And when I pay attention, I notice lots of little coincidences. Imagine my surprise when 11:11 showed up on a clock in the movie.

I'm interested in learning the Whys of this. What draws my eyes to noticing 1:11 and 11:11, not only on the clock but in other places, like change received from purchases, taking something to the post office to mail only to find out it will cost $1.11.

And 23, well, don't even get me started.

Well, I landed here on this blog, probably for a good reason. I'll explore more as time permits.

Im glad I stumbled upon this page.
I have had repeated occurances with the number 23, after I seen the amazing number 23 movie. This has been going on now for atleast 4 months. At first I thought it was just a coincidence. But now that months have passed by, I'm beginning to wonder. it seems that whenever I look at the clock, its :23. In my books I read, I always stop on 32 or 23; or chapter 23. I just looked at the clock, seriously No joke, and its 6:32 pm. Last night, I called my friend at 6:23 pm. I pressed previous on the remote for the television, and it went to channel 23. I really want you to talk to me about your occurances as well.
Maybe you can explain the numeral occurances? www.yahoo.com/ash_nicole_16@yahoo.com.
Only if you find the time though.
The number though, and the repeated times seeing that certain number, has been making me very parranoid and nervous.

Nicole,
I'm posting a response hear rather than a private email because this blog is meant to be for the community. Apparently I've struck a chord with the number observation - it just goes to show that it happens to more than just you and I.

So my thoughts for you - first of all, there is nothing to be nervous about. Granted, the movie was scary, but it's fiction. I can't tell you what that number means to you - that's something you have to decide. It might not be the number that is significant but when it occurs. In other words, the universe knows that you pay attention to that number, so it's entirely possible that it's a signal for you to pay extra attention to that friend or that book chapter. Or it could just be a coincidence. :)

I see the number 23 absolutely everywhere. It's the date my first love asked me out. I see it on every license plate, random numbers on cars. It's just in random places all together. And it's always something I wouldn't normally notice. I am constantly seeing it on the clock, whenever I look at it basically.

Joe said...

Hi this is pretty weird reading this post. The number 23 is everywhere in my life, i see it at least 2 or 3 times a day! just very weird occurrences when i notice this number, and also i was born on august 23..idk what it means. i always tried to figure out what it meant

Lucy Peters said...

Lucy Peters said...

sammy2tone23 said...

This same thing happens to me too exactly the same. i don't know why it happens i have just told my self its my lucky number and when i see it good things are coming.

avaanna said...

I was born on the 22nd day of the year and have a coincidence connected to that. My very sweet friend is a Jehovah's Witness. We were both born on this day and she is 22 years older than me. The Jehovah's Witnesses believe that everything that is not explained in the bible is just chance occurence and does not need one's attention. I have also had the 11/11 coincidence.

Cory Majore said...

I came to this site I am studying to be one of Jehovah's witnesses I only mentioned that cause the last comment but I still have my theories and philosophy's I am having extreme significance with the number 23 that I associate with fate and destiny and also 353 these are just the numbers there are also colours and powerful words that find me or I find them I find myself to be like a spiritual detective now a day's

The number 23 has been a part of my life since forever. I was born 3/23 and I LOVE the color Pink. If anyone saw the movie, pink is equal to 23. I mean use the number 23 for most things in my life. And I painted my room pink, 90% of the things I own is pink. Strangely every so often in my life I see the number 23, in fact in the past two days when I look at the time it's 3:23. I'm not sure if this a good thing Or not. I watched the movie 23 because hey I love jim carrey and it had the number 23. I reading a lot of bad things about the number 23, but I focus on the good , like psalm 23. Personally I've had an awesome life but like Jim no luck with a steady love in my life. Everything else great, I'm just not sure any more.

I started seeing 23 last year and now i see it a good amount of times a day. At first it was 123 on the clock a lot then it went to 323 523 823 423 623 etc. Oh yeah my area code is 623. My mom gave me my birth certificate so i could get this job and i found out I was born at 623 pm. My ex broke up with me at the beginning of this year and I made a song about her and i swear i didn't do this on purpose but I was listening to it one day and saw that the song was 3:21 long and the crazy part about that is that I cut some of the beat off at the beginning when I was making the song because I didn't know what to say on that part. Thats 123 backwards. We got back together after that and she broke up with me again and I kept seeing 23 ALOT!!! Then we got back together and a couple of months later she started acting strange and i started seeing 23 every where and then she broke up with me again. Everytime I would think or talk about her i would see 23 right after, it never failed to show up. When i first started seeing it I was kind of scared because I don't know what it means at all. I've recently started seeing 12:34 on the clock some times i see it twice a day and sometimes once. I see the number 34 sometimes too.I still haven't stopped seeing 23 yet last time i saw it was at 6:23 am and its 6:43am now. It was weird because I was looking up stuff about 23 and i started thinking what if 23 had to do with love and as soon as i said that I saw 6:23 on the clock and my battery percentage was 32. And that just happened recently. It's way more stuff I could say about me and this number I just want freakin answers. Is it because my fav number is 5? Lol. Woahh i just realized when i typed in how i recently saw 23 at 6:23 and i said it was 6:43 that 43 is 34 backwards. Whyy!! I need answers!!?

23 has started to bother me a lot recently, at first I thought it was a sign of luck because I won loads of money gambling on 23 but after that I started to see it everywhere then I bought a new phone and the number ends with 923. I was born on the 9th of September so naturally 9 is my lucky number I know 23 is the 9th prime number too also for the past 4/5 years on the clock I have been seeing 12:12, 12:21 23:23 23:32 09:09 and so on. I get this daily even if I ask someone for the time, it must mean something though

The Mysterious 23 said...

Annika: The number 23 has been appearing EVERYWHERE for me. I'm driving by, and I look out my window for a second, and the house number says 23. At Starbucks, the lady calls out: Number 23, Annika!" I play sports, and the clock or timer always says something like: 23:04, 12:23, 23:23, etc. It's really strange. I look at the TV when baseball, football, soccer, or any other sport is on and the player it's focusing on has a jersey that almost always says 23. Also, My friend is trying out for "The Voice" On the 23 or 2016. I found this website when I researched "Why does the number 23 keep appearing everywhere?" I mostly searched it up just to see if anyone else has this happen to them. I play a game that tracks points, and my score is 23. I'm on level 23 on almost EVERYTHING. This has happened for almost 2 years now, but it started happening more frequently about 4 months ago. The drive to where my grandparents live is 23 minutes, as claims the GPS. But I'm happy not knowing the reason for these things, because things like this are what make life interesting.

Jenn Chicoine said...

I as well see the number 23 everywhere, its really creepy and weird, it freaks me out all the time, ever since i turned 32 in september 2015, my birthday september 3rd 1983, they say it can mean many things, like if you add up my date of birth..3rd(3+9(month)+8+3(the year i was born)=23, then theres talk thats its an angel trying to send you a message...which i could believe is possible, but how do i know for sure, its every time i look at the clock, every time i do a calculation, or when im counting my cash at the end of the day, i always seem to have something that has 23 in it, is this a higher being sending certain people on earth a message, do we have something to do, ive had someone tell me its a meaning that life is waiting for an accomplishment that i need to accomplish, its to remind me that the day i was born, it was for a special meaning and maybe i didnt do what i had to do yet..i dont know, sometimes i wish the signs could be more clear..because just seeing this number everyday and everywhere i go is confusing..if anyone could help..it would be nice..Jenn
