Why am I seeing 11:11 which is 1111? I know it has something to do with the 1,111 midwayers.

You asked: Why am I seeing 11:11 which is 1111? I know it has something to do with the 1,111 midwayers. And what does it mean if I keep seeing the same number sequence a lot? I saw a actual midwayer angel and I was contacted.

Thanks for your note to us here at TruthBook with your question about 11:11.

As you may know, this 11:11 phenomenon has been circulating among many people for years. I first heard about it back in the 1990s. It seems to be most closely associated with the Teaching Mission, which consists of a group of "receivers" who supposedly channel spirit beings like Midwayers. Like you, many believers report being prompted from time to time - usually on a clock - of the number 11:11, which is as you observe, the number of loyal midwayers on our world. Coincidence?

Even though communication with midway creatures may be loosely hinted at, The Urantia Book is pretty clear on what that communication is not. (emphasis in the following passage is mine):

77:8.13 Their chief work today is that of unperceived personal-liaison associates of those men and women who constitute the planetary reserve corps of destiny. It was the work of this secondary group, ably seconded by certain of the primary corps, that brought about the co-ordination of personalities and circumstances on Urantia which finally induced the planetary celestial supervisors to initiate those petitions that resulted in the granting of the mandates making possible the series of revelations of which this presentation is a part. But it should be made clear that the midway creatures are not involved in the sordid performances taking place under the general designation of "spiritualism." The midwayers at present on Urantia, all of whom are of honorable standing, are not connected with the phenomena of so-called "mediumship"; and they do not, ordinarily, permit humans to witness their sometimes necessary physical activities or other contacts with the material world, as they are perceived by human senses.

As to why you are seeing this, I can't say. Sometimes I wonder whether people hear about this phenomenon and then their minds are more attuned to seeing the numbers for themselves. Again, I can't say. But I do think that we can be conditioned for such things, making the repeated notice of it more frequent. Suddenly, we're seeing 1111 - or other number sequences - everywhere...

As for your claim that you have seen and been contacted by a "midwayer angel," I have no comment, except to say that I am sure that you saw and/or heard something that was meaningful to you.

The Urantia Book does not promote communication with any supernatural beings except the indwelling Adjuster; and though it is explained as a real possibility, even that possibility is fraught with abundant cautions from the revelators. And this is likely because such communications can be easily misunderstood and/or misused. Any attempt at spirit communication might be approached with care and serious intent.

In the end, the desire to be in contact with beings from on high seems to be hardwired into us humans. It is especially acute in us because of the fact that our normal means of communication with the spiritual world was cut off when our planet was quarantined.

92:5.5 "...there is an instinctive longing in the heart of evolutionary man for help from above and beyond. This craving is designed to anticipate the appearance on earth of the Planetary Prince and the later Material Sons. On Urantia man has been deprived of these superhuman leaders and rulers, and therefore does he constantly seek to make good this loss by enshrouding his human leaders with legends pertaining to supernatural origins and miraculous careers."

In my opinion, this also may explain why these attempts to establish communication with angels and midwayers is so popular, too.

I am sorry that I am not able to offer you any concrete answers to your questions. But I advise to take the passages that I have given you to heart. We all have within us the "still, small voice" which may be difficult to discern; relying on a spirit being other than that small voice may have some novel attraction, but the question is: is it real? Is it true?

Consider the province of prayer above all, which is probably the best, safest avenue to authentic spirit- communication with the most authentic Spirit of all, the indwelling Thought Adjuster

Here is some good advice from Jesus:

133:4.10 To the traveler from Britain he said: "My brother, I perceive you are seeking for truth, and I suggest that the spirit of the Father of all truth may chance to dwell within you. Did you ever sincerely endeavor to talk with the spirit of your own soul? Such a thing is indeed difficult and seldom yields consciousness of success; but every honest attempt of the material mind to communicate with its indwelling spirit meets with certain success, notwithstanding that the majority of all such magnificent human experiences must long remain as superconscious registrations in the souls of such God-knowing mortals."

Thanks again for writing; I hope my reply has been helpful.
