Angel Number 838: 6 Powerful Reasons You’re Seeing It!

838 holds a special place in my heart and I’m so excited to share its insanely beautiful meanings with you! Angel Number 838 is what I call a core master number, and it’s incredibly lucky.

Though it’s not seen often, it holds the potential to change your life should you choose to listen to the deeply profound, healing, and magical messages it carries from your angelic guides.


Angel number 838 means you’re going through a period of deep inner transformation. One that’s allowing you to grow and reconnect with yourself again.

It encourages you to focus on your individuality, fearlessly express yourself and hone in on what makes your soul come alive. A true breakthrough moment!

This is a time of great expansion in all areas of your life! Your angels are ushering in waves of opportunities for you at this time, and they’re supporting you through the natural ups and downs.

They want you to keep going! Keep plodding along, even if things seem fruitless right now. There is nothing you cannot do if your beliefs and intentions are aligned with your desires!

With double 8 by your side, you can also expect sudden solutions to problems, a sudden increase in wealth, and reaching some of your most important goals.


The first thing you should know about angel number 838 is that it’s a palindrome number, which means it can be read backward just as it can be read forwards – and it stays the same.

The word palindrome has Greek roots, whereby ‘palin’ means ‘again’ and ‘dromos’ means ‘to find a way’. Therefore, at the core of angel number 838 is the beautiful message of finding your way again.

Spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically, you’re being encouraged to go back to the beginning. Your loving angels want you to simplify and celebrate all of the things that bring you joy, peace, and happiness, and surrender the rest.



838 is a subtle, but powerful reminder to return to the child-like self; the time when you believed magic was real.

The time when anything felt possible and you let your imagination and creativity run wild. 838 is a beautiful call to return to being at one with the stars and earth, to awaken and rediscover what it truly means to be alive.

What to do about it: Your angels are asking you to envision the life you truly want, to set your intentions, and watch them manifest before your eyes. Your angelic helpers can’t help unless you ask them – and believe me when I say no request is too big.

The key to receiving and bringing these wonderful gifts into your life? Understand that you are already whole without them. It’s the classic scenario; the more the chase, the less you attract.


Are you doubting yourself? Is there an endless loop of negativity, mindless chatter, and degrading talk going on in your head? Are you feeling overwhelmed with everything you’ve got to do, or think you should do?

Your angels are reminding you of your innate divine strengths, talents, and abilities. This is a rather forceful message your angels want to get across; you’re capable beyond belief.

You’re forgetting that you came from the stars! If only you could see yourself the way your angels, see you; you’re amazing and blessed beyond imagination.

What to do about it: This is a green light to step up, awaken and use your talents in a way that brings you deep and utmost joy.


An interesting message. Angel number 838 can appear when we’re consistently putting others’ needs first. When was the last time you said no when you really wanted to? When was the last time you did the right thing for you?

What to do about it: 838 encourages you to reign in your power and use it for your own personal development. Focus on your personal growth.


We’ve already established that with the power of angel number 838 on your side, anything is possible. But, what you might not realize is that the ‘3′ in 838 is the number of the universe.

It’s the number that means “all” is given. It represents being whole as it contains a beginning, a middle, and an end. It’s the merging of body, soul, and spirit.

Seeing 838 means that your angels are unearthing a divine portal of golden opportunities for you.

This portal is known as a 333 portal – another angel number linked with worldly success, manifestation, and being on the right track.

You can think of this portal as a cluster of immense positive energy swirling around your aura, body, and energy centers; enveloping you like your angels would if they could physically embrace you.

What results can you expect from this portal? Small things, big things, energy shifts, dynamic changes, exciting opportunities, adventure, spontaneity – anything you have previously wished for!

What to do about it: Stay positive, and trust that the universe is bringing you aligned circumstances, making sure to keep an eye out for opportunities that come your way.

Also, a little side note, don’t feel pressured into saying ‘yes’ to everything that appears – only say ‘yes’ to what calls to you.


838 can be a simple reminder to keep going along your spiritual path – there may be times you need to correct course or overcome obstacles, but it’s nothing you can’t handle with ease, effort, and grace!

What to do about it: Your angels are sending you a terrific boost in energy. You might feel inspired to take what seems like ‘random’ action, but know that this has been orchestrated by your angels.

Now is the time to take that leap of faith – it’ll pay off in the long run.


Your guardian angels acknowledge your hard work and effort and want to remind you of your infinite potential and connection to source energy!

What to do about it: Take time to remind yourself that no matter how tough situations may seem, you hold a part of the power that creates worlds and births miracles within you! Never forget that.


  • Hard times are coming to an end (I saw a golden rainbow in front of a storm cloud during meditation. The storm was passing.)
  • Ascended masters are with you
  • Use your creativity to bring about new opportunities (how can you tune into what makes you uniquely you?)
  • Now is the time to step into your personal power
  • Karmic deeds are paying off
  • Chosen endeavors will be successful
  • Your connection with the universe is deepening
  • A time of growth, joy, and expansion
  • Stay optimistic and focus on your intentions
  • A call to serve humanity and others through your talents
  • You’re highly psychic, perhaps even have hidden abilities
meanings of angel number 838


As far as love is concerned, 838 means to take an all-or-nothing approach.

As the famous children’s writer Roald Dahl once said, ‘if you’re interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms. Hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it because lukewarm is no good’.

This doesn’t mean pursuing a relationship regardless of consequences, but instead, angel number 838 is asking you to bring more compassion, aliveness, and joy into your relationships – be that romantic or platonic.

838 is a true number of sincerity; you’re being asked to show your true self and let it shine regardless of what others think, feel, or believe. This isn’t the time to change who you are or attempt to fit a mold to suit others’ needs.

838 also carries an endearing message relating to self-love too; to first give love to others you must understand what it means to love, value, and respect yourself; the infinite self.

This will mean learning when to say ‘no’ just as much as it means learning when to say ‘yes’. Healthy boundaries are key to any successful relationship.

You might also see angel number 0808955511, and 2323 alongside this message.


Twin flames are a hot topic, and whether you believe in fated meetings or not, 838 can signal meeting a twin flame who is at the very least an equal – emotionally and mentally.

This soul likely will push you outside your comfort zone in the best possible way; think adventures, spontaneity, new experiences, and new ways of being. With the power of double ‘8′ though, this is someone who is equally ambitious as they are sensitive, a wonderful combination.

They’ll always find ways to surprise you, but at the same time know when something’s not right in the relationship and needs healing.

838 is a good sign for relationships, twin flames, and soul mate pairings.


If you’ve been seeking a promotion, career change, or want to start your own business, now is a great time to do so!

Your guardian angels are giving you a green light to do so. All business endeavors will be successful, providing you’re tuning into your heart’s desires.


I hope this post has brought you some much-needed clarity, wisdom, and joy. I love delving deep into the world of numerology, angel numbers, and spirituality and sharing it with you.

Just remember that right now you have the undivided attention of your entire angelic team – they’re not only there to help bring your greatest visions to life, but they’re also there to help you in your greatest hours of need.

You need only ask, and you’ll instantly feel their loving vibration embrace you.

Other harmonious numbers to watch out for alongside this sequence include numbers 818, 828, 848, 858, 898 as well as angel number 3 which can all hold more important messages for you.
