Since manifesting went mainstream, we've all dabbled in the practice at some stage, cleansing spaces by burning sage, lighting intention candles and declaring our desires to our private journals. If you're looking to get the attention of the universe and harness the power of manifestation, then November 11 is a unique opportunity to do so.
As Paris Hilton continues to remind us, 11/11 is not just her favourite number, but a powerful combination at that. Not only is it a palindrome and for this reason kind of poetic, but in the world of Numerology, a school of thought that believes numbers have their own individual meaning, 11 is considered a master number, just as 22 and 33 is. Other double digit figures are labelled power numbers instead. What this means is it holds extra potency and is considered auspicious, which is where the whole "it's 11:11, make a wish" tendency comes from.
In Numerology, the number 1 is all about beginnings, leadership and setting forth on a new journey, so when you double this you double the strength of the meaning too. So if you're willing something into fruition, you may as well channel the energy November 11 carries along the way.
To maximise the potential November 11 bring for manifesting, we suggest allocating half an hour of your day to the practice – preferably at 11:11am or 11:11pm (maybe even both?) for greater impact. If you need a brush up on what manifesting involves, let us share a few tips.
When it comes to manifesting it helps to visualise the situation you're trying to bring about. For this you'll need to clear your mind, and open your heart and mind to the possibilities and focus. Lighting a candle helps to signify a ritual is taking place, and as an object to channel your intentions into. Physically writing your thoughts and desires inside a journal is also another great way to alert the universe to your wants. Set daily intentions and affirmations, choose gratitude. The rest will come.
