The belief is that if you happen to look at the clock at 11:11, am or pm, you make a wish and it will come true. And there is a stipulation, you must look away when you see 11:11 and make your wish and when you look back if it is already 11:12, your wish will not come true.
After looking on the internet for a very long time, because everything I seemed to have found was all iffy about the 11:11 superstition and does not know much about it, I found out some entertaining view points. Many astrologists are interested with 11:11, but can’t make much sense of it nor do they know where it originated. Apparently, the Mayans predicted that the world would end at 11:11 on December 12, 2012. Is that where the time originated? Who knows! I found an article that mentioned the repetition of 1’s mean that “we are all one,” and the time symbolizing it because it consists of all 1’s. This website I found goes way beyond the norm, mentioning crazy reasons why 11 is significant and why 11:11 exists, check it out. http://www.urigeller.com/articles/11.htm
I also found a “scientific” reason why the number 1111 is in our conscience. “Physical reality is a consciousness program created by digital codes. Numbers, numeric codes, define our existence. Human DNA, our genetic memory, is encoded to be triggered by digital codes at specific times and frequencies. Those codes awaken the mind to the change and evolution of consciousness. 11:11 is one of those codes, meaning activation of DNA.” http://www.crystalinks.com/11.11.html
On the previous website I listed, it was said that an interview was done with a woman, Solara, and it was all about ascension and the beginning of awareness of the 11:11 code. Here is a website of the woman who is clearly obsessed with 11:11, but it is pretty interesting, too! http://www.nvisible.com/
How many of you make 11:11 wishes and never knew why??? I guess we will really never know, but will continue to wish!
