11:11


I don't really know the background behind the "phenomenon" of 11:11. I always just heard that it was good luck if you looked at a clock and it said 11:11.

I tried to wikipedia it, and all I found was:

Numerologists believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear more often than chance or coincidence. This belief is related to the concept of synchronicity. Other authors believe it is an auspicious sign, and others that it signals a spirit presence. The belief that it has mystical powers has been adopted by believers in New Age philosophies.

So, there you go. It's auspicious.

Anyway, about 3 months ago, I kept noticing as I was getting ready for bed, that I'd glance at the clock when it said 11:11, and I'd make a small wish:

Please let me be pregnant this month.
Please let me be pregnant this month.
Please let me be pregnant this month.
Please let me be pregnant this month.

I'd wish it until the clock turned to 11:12.

Now that I'm pregnant (probably due to all that wishing I'd guess) these last couple weeks, since things aren't going as smoothly as we'd like, I have a new wish:

Please let the baby be ok and have a long and healthy life.
Please let the baby be ok and have a long and healthy life.
Please let the baby be ok and have a long and healthy life.
Please let the baby be ok and have a long and healthy life.

I wish this over and over any time I happen to glance at the clock and it says 11:11, all the way until 11:12. I don't WAIT for it to say 11:11, I only do the wish when I just happen to catch it there.

Yes, I realize that wishes don't make things like this actually happen, but it sure can't hurt! :)
