Seeing angel numbers when thinking of someone? Whilst it’s tempting to believe they’re totally coincidental, there’s actually something much deeper happening here.
In numerology, repeated sequences or numerological patterns represent an amplification of energy.
So when you see repeated angel numbers, you can be sure the universe is sending you a message that this connection will, or has had, a profound impact on your life.
5 REASONS YOU’RE SEEING ANGEL NUMBERS WHEN THINKING OF SOMEONE
1. A PAST LIFE CONNECTION
Have you ever encountered someone and immediately felt as though you’ve already met? A true deja vu moment. They might have a recognizable face or an energy that just feels so familiar.
“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.” — Paulo Coelho
Seeing angel numbers when thinking of someone could signal a past-life connection.
Past life connections are when the soul is believed to have lived many lives on this planet before, and so has crossed paths with many souls too. These are usually cosmically fated meetings.
If you had a positive connection with this person in a past life, you might feel like you’re returning home to a warm embrace.
If you had a negative connection with this person, you might have the urge to stay away from them, even if you can’t pinpoint why.
Palindrome and triple-digit numbers are a good sign of a past life connection. Palindromes are numbers that can be read backward just as they can forward e.g. 7777, 707, 333, 1551. Triple sequences are any number with 3 digits e.g. 333, 123, 111, 611, 858 etc.
2. A TWIN FLAME OR SOUL MATE
Twin flames are some of the most intense connections that exist in the cosmos. They stem from the belief that the soul always has an equal roaming the Earth.
But unlike any other relationship, they act like a giant mirror to one another, highlighting their strengths, weaknesses, and even core wounds that need to be healed.
In this case, if you keep seeing what I call ‘uplifting’ or positive angel numbers when thinking about a specific person, they could very well be your twin flame or soul mate.
Example twin flame numbers to watch out for include; 333, 111, 1111, 77, 222, 5555, and 2211. Any numbers that contain ‘8’ are also significant as they symbolize the eternal nature of a soul mate connection.
3. A STRONG ENERGETIC TIE
This one is interesting because it can signal a past, present, or future energetic tie with someone, though the past and present have stronger pulls because the energy has already been woven into the fabric of the universe.
In other words, because you’ve already met them, the tie is much stronger than a potential future one.
This tie can be seen with ex-partners, old friends, former colleagues, or even future partners and can symbolize anything from the strengthening of an old connection to an acknowledgment you did right to cut it off.
Seeing angel numbers when thinking of a particular person here can signal a return of this person in your life too.

4. THIS PERSON WILL HAVE A STRONG INFLUENCE OR IMPACT
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but a strong influence or impact doesn’t always mean a positive one, though this could certainly be the case.
This person could be a true helper, steering you in the right direction, or could bring an immense amount of joy into your life.
But, they could also be here to teach you some harsh life lessons which will lead to a new level of personal growth (if not add to your box of trauma).
Both are equally needed in this lifetime.
Pivotal angel numbers with 1’s in such as 911, 611, 2211 are good examples of what to watch out for. 1’s symbolize new beginnings and positive impacts. Anything with a number 6 could signal a growth lesson, whereas number 9’s are typically a sign of helpers.
WHY AM I SEEING ANGEL NUMBERS WHEN THINKING OF AN EX?
When thinking of an ex, seeing angel numbers either means you were always meant to be together, or it can serve as a swift reminder that you did the right thing and were right to move on.
It can also symbolize stuck energy that needs to be released, so you can finally be emotionally, mentally, and physically free.
How to know which message it is? Remember, angel numbers typically show up when you’re either on the path to alignment or are closely working towards it.
This means they show up when you’re in most alignment with your highest self e.g. the path of positivity, growth, and reflection.
So if you’re seeing angel numbers after thinking of an ex-partner, it could be a sign to reunite, let go or heal from the emotional damage. Deep down, you know what’s best for you.
Whenever I’ve chased a relationship in the past (and knew it was the wrong thing to do), I stopped seeing angel numbers completely. Why?
Well, they don’t typically act as a warning, so there’s no reason for angels to show them. There are no real ‘bad angel numbers’. So the absence of these numbers told me I was straying far from my path.
EMOTIONAL GUIDANCE SYSTEM: WORKING OUT THE MESSAGE FROM YOUR ANGELS
How do I tell if seeing this angel number was a good or bad message? The key to telling which message you were meant to hear is noticing how you felt when you first saw the angel number sequence appear.
When thinking about this person, did your stomach lurch in fear, anguish, sadness, or disgust? Or did you feel happy, joyous, and content?
Whatever causes the energy centers in your body to close i.e. that knot in your stomach, the tightness in your chest, the lump in your throat, is a sure sign this is, or was, a toxic energetic tie.
I’M SEEING REPEATING NUMBERS AFTER MEETING SOMEONE NEW
Seeing repeating numbers after meeting someone new means your guides are pointing out an important message. This could be a highly influential relationship in the future, or it could serve as a minor warning to trust your gut instinct about this person.
DOES THIS MEAN THIS PERSON IS SENDING ME THESE NUMBERS?
Not exactly. Angel numbers come directly from the angelic realms. When thinking about someone else, your guides are directly responding to your thoughts.
Having said that, it’s entirely possible they’re thinking about you too. If you see mutual mirror numbers e.g. 1122, 2233, 3344 etc this is a good sign your angels are letting you know you’re likely on their mind.
Seeing 222 when thinking of someone is also a major sign of a union or a blossoming new relationship.
