What is the difference between Angel Numbers and Numerology?

Numerology is the science of numbers, a universal language. Breaking down patterns you can uncover your personal Numerology Chart using your birthdate and your name, your Life Path Number, figure out lessons from the universe when you see recurring numbers even go as far as determining romantic compatibility.

Depending on what you read you will also see reference to Chinese and Western Numerology, Chinese Numerology is a completely different and extremely popular system.

In the Chinese system they don’t associate the number with its deep-rooted personality, it is based on the sounds it makes so if a number sounds similar to a word that is negative or unlucky that number is also considered negative or unlucky.  You can read more about that here with the differences between the Chinese and Western definition of the numbers.


Angel Numbers are messages from the angels, they communicate many ways one of them being numerical patterns or sequences. Do you ever randomly look at your phone and see the time as 5:55, 2:22 or a sequence of numbers on receipts, invoices, numberplates while driving all these numbers have a significant meaning if you keep seeing these it is a message or a lesson you need to learn.

I personally carry around my Angel Numbers pocket book by Doreen Virtue and Lynette Brown so when I see the random numbers in a short space of time I will look it up. One of the more popular numbers you will see posted everywhere is 11:11 – meaning your thoughts are manifesting and you need to keep an eye on your thoughts so they stay at the highest possible vibration.

 Extract from Doreen Virtue’s Spirit Library:

111 - Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don't want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts (ask your angels to help you with this if you have difficulty controlling or monitoring your thoughts).

222 - Our newly planted ideas are beginning to grow into reality. Keep watering and nurturing them, and soon they will push through the soil so you can see evidence of your manifestation. In other words, don't quit five minutes before the miracle. Your manifestation is soon going to be evident to you, so keep up the good work! Keep holding positive thoughts, keep affirming, and continue visualising.

333 - The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love, and companionship. Call upon the Ascended Masters often, especially when you see the number 3 patterns around you. Some of the more famous Ascended Masters include: Jesus, Moses, Mary, Quan Yin, and Yogananda.

444 - The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don't worry because the angels' help is nearby.

555 - Buckle your seatbelts. A major life change is upon you. This change should not be viewed as being "positive" or "negative," since all change is but a natural part of life's flow. Perhaps this change is an answer to your prayers, so continue seeing and feeling yourself being at peace.

666 - Your thoughts are out of balance right now, focused too much on the material world. This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between heaven and earth. Like the famous "Sermon on the Mount," the angels ask you to focus on spirit and service, and know your material and emotional needs will automatically be met as a result.

777 - The angels applaud you, congratulations, you're on a roll! Keep up the good work and know your wish is coming true. This is an extremely positive sign and means you should also expect more miracles to occur.

888 - A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career, or relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. In addition, it means, "The crops are ripe. Don't wait to pick and enjoy them." In other words, don't procrastinate making your move or enjoying fruits of your labour.

999 - Completion. This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life. Also, it is a message to light-workers involved in Earth healing and means, "Get to work because Mother Earth needs you right now."

000 - A reminder you are one with God, and to feel the presence of your Creator's love within you. Also, it is a sign that a situation has gone full circle.
