What Role Does Synchronicity Play In Our Lives?
Updated: Feb 24
When I wrote Child of the Universe, there were only two times the clock ever seemed to show me: 12:22 am and 12:22pm. The repetition didn’t surprise me, for years I feel like I have been haunted by this number and often confused by its meaning and place in my life. In some respects, it has been a foreboding number and others a joyous one. For example, I experienced the birth of my firstborn child at 12:22pm and also lost my sister Amanda at 12:22am when she was struck by a car at the age of 16.
1222 has always been a curiosity to me, I recall searching the early internet for its meaning, and still to this day not finding much more than when I first started. I’ve understood from Wikipedia that many historical events happened during the year 1222, such as a major earthquake on Cyprus and also the 6 year old Erik Eriksson became the king of Sweden. None of these events really stood out to me in any way.
On the internet I found a few different interpretations of what some believe the number 1222 to symbolize:
WillowSoul.com, a blog I found, asserts that: “Seeing angel number 1222 means that it is the right time to start something new in your life. It can have something to do with your career or maybe with your love life. ... Your angels are giving you the opportunity to fix your mistakes from the past and to do something good for you and also for people around you.”
Meanwhile, another site Angelnumber.com also detailed a connection to number 7, the day of my birth: “Of course, there are many other meanings related to angel number 1222 as well. We have to mention that this number may be influenced by number 7, because the sum of numbers 1, 2, 2 and 2 is 7. Angel number 7 also carries a message for you and it means that you will overcome all troubles on your way to success.”
Of the few other resources I could find, I felt the most relatable passage was this one from trustedpshycicmediums.com: “The message the angel number 1222 urges you to achieve balance and harmony in your life.There are certain things that are taking too much of your time, and there are certain people who are instilling fear, pain, and anxiety in you.The 1222 meaning pushes you to be more discerning when it comes to choosing people to trust and love, and following pursuits that will only leave you feeling like a lesser version of yourself.”
Even with these insights into the numerological meaning, I still feel like there is so much more to know and so much more connected to this number for me. Why does it feel like it is flashing before me, trying to give me my secret message? In the past I’ve felt superstitious about December 22 but have never felt it really panned out to any major event for me.
I know for many others, there has been a large shift in people seeing 11:11, what some may see as a sign of the times, a great awakening in humanity. Every now and then I catch an 11:11, but I don't feel that strong connection to it like I do with 1222.
Part of me knows deep down that the true meaning of 1222 will most likely play out over the course of my lifetime, leaving answers somewhere ahead of me. Perhaps 1222 is my own little connection to the Universe, a way to say hello, remember me, the other you? Maybe it has something to do with Lemuria and Atlantis and my subconscious mind is not ready to reveal. I asked once during a session with QHHT practitioner Sarah Breskman Cosme, but the answer felt locked away, inaccessible for the time.
And so I throw it out there to you, reader. Do you feel like you have a special affinity to the number 1222, or perhaps another synchronicity? What do you think it means? In what ways has it affected your life? Reach out and share your story on our FB or Reddit dedicated to “Child Of The Universe” and “A Hypnotist’s Journey To Atlantis.”
