Q:

Why do you make a wish at 11:11?

A:

Wishes are made when a clock is at 11:11 because the numbers 11 and 1111 are considered to represent new beginnings as well as moments of oneness. Numerologists and new age practitioners place emphasis on the numbers 11 and 1111 for this reason.

The concept of synchronicity is associated with that of oneness. Synchronicity is the experience of more than one event being related in a meaningful way. For example, glancing at a clock when it reads 11:11 is not something that occurs by happenstance. As a result, the potential for wish fulfillment enhances. The specific origins surrounding the importance of 11 and 1111 are not particularly known.

    Why is the number 13 considered bad luck?

    A:

    Several different reasons exist for the superstition that the number 13 brings bad luck, such as the fact that 13 people sat down at the Last Supper, shortly before the crucifixion of Jesus. The Norse legends included a story about 12 gods sitting at a banquet when Loki, the uninvited god, showed up to make it 13, a debacle that led to a huge battle. Numerologists view the number 12 as the sign of completion and perfection, so adding to it only causes trouble.
