The famous psychologist Carl Gustav Jung was the first to coin and define the concept of synchronicity. Synchronicity is when meaning emerges from patterns and coincidences that may at first seem completely random.

But how can you be sure that you seeing 3:33 is synchronous and has meaning, instead of being just an odd coincidence that can be dismissed?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Does it keep happening?
  • Does it feel significant?
  • Am I currently searching for guidance and answers?

If you are in a place in your life where you are searching for answers – or at the very least open to receiving guidance from the universe or whichever higher forces you believe in – seeing 3:33 is never a coincidence. This is particularly true if it keeps happening. You simply don’t get jolted out of you sleep or overhear the number 3:33 in random conversations three times in a week without there being an underlying spiritual meaning.

3:33 symbolism explained

The place you are most likely to see the number 3:33 is on a digital clock face denoting the time, but it’s entirely possible to see it in other places as well, with our without the colon.

The numbers 3:33 and 333 have very similar meaning, but the colon still adds a natural pause, like a held breath. It also creates a break in the number sequence, turning 3:33 into 3 and 33.

The number 3 in and of itself has always been associated with divine energy. To this day, it plays a significant role in many fairytales, spiritual beliefs and religions throughout the world. The number 33 also contains specific and powerful layers of meaning – particularly when viewed from either a Christian or a numerological perspective. Finally, when the three 3s are placed in a row, they turn into angel number 333, a number linked to the divine realm and containing a message of spiritual growth.

The sign of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

Christians associate the number 3 with the Holy Trinity, consisting of the God the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ his son, and the ineffable Holy Spirit. But 3 isn’t only the number of the Holy Trinity to Christians. It is also the number most frequently associated with Jesus.

According to the New Testament, Jesus Christ died at the age of 33. He sacrificed himself in order to redeem all of humanity. As such, the numbers 3 and 33 are strongly correlated with divinity, humility, sacrifice and transcendence.

The Biblical meaning of the numbers 3 and 33 can be boiled down to a deep connection and communication between the mundane and spiritual realms. The Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is, from a Christian perspective, the very embodiment of the spiritual realm. And when Jesus died on the cross aged only 33, he created a pact between God and humanity, referred to by Christians as the New Covenant.

Numerological perspective on the numbers 3, 33 and 333

The numbers 3, 33 and 333 are all very interesting from a numerological perspective.


3 is the number most strongly and most commonly associated with spiritual awakening, spiritual growth and transcendence. It is also associated with luck, magic, and with taking a leap of faith into the unknown.

We all know that the number 3 follows 2, which follows the initial 1. 1 is the number of singularity, new beginnings, bold action and confidence. 2 is the natural progression from these concepts, indicating stability, harmony, balance and ‘finding your feet.’ 3, once again, creates imbalance, but not in a negative way. 3 is that driving force that propels us forward from what is good to what is better. 3 is the desire for adventure, discovery, growth and expansion. The number 2 is wonderful and necessary, but from the stability and harmony that this number represents, a powerful creative drive naturally emerges.

3 is an adventurous and curious number, which may explain why it so often appears in fairytales. Almost universally, the fairytale hero is the third son or daughter, or merely someone who succeeds on the third attempt. Because of this, the number 3 also reminds us of perseverance, determination and grit. Sure, this number can be considered a lucky number, but we aren’t talking about blind dumb luck. We are, instead, talking about the kind of luck that comes from refusing to pack it in when everybody else does.


As for the number 33, it is considered a master number. Since numerology was first developed in Ancient Greece, special meaning has been ascribed to double numbers, particularly to the masters numbers 11, 22 and 33.

Each of the Master Numbers also has a title that describes the number’s energy: 11 is the Master Communicator, 22 is the Master Builder, and 33 is the Master Teacher.

The Master Communicator

Going into great detail about the Master Communicator and the Master Builder is beyond the scope of this article, but in brief, the Master Communicator possesses an incredible charisma, confidence and zest for life. He or she will have an almost supernatural ability to attract attention and followers, and may seem to lead a charmed life. He or she will usually be extremely adept with words, both spoken or written.

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that many Master Communicators become politicians, motivational speakers or icons in other regards. A few examples of Master Communicators include Barack Obama and Tony Robbins.

The Master BUILDER

Master Builders excel at building community and are often true visionaries. However, their visionary ideas and perspectives are coupled with a practical, hands-on approach to life. Master Builders may build behind the scenes undertaking large philanthropic enterprises, or they may build and share their gifts more openly with the world.

Master Builders often take a long-term view of their own contributions, and want to see them continue long after their own personal life path has drawn to a close. Examples of Master Builders include Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates and the Dalai Lama.

The Master TEACHER

Finally we have the Master Teacher, signified by the number 33.

For Master Teachers, achieving personal goals or renown takes a backseat to an overriding vision of a better world. Master Teachers are all about uplifting the overall consciousness and vibration of humanity. In other words, Master Teachers are altruistic, visionary, creative, curious, and quite often, entirely without an ego.

Examples of noteworthy Master Teachers include Albert Einstein, John Lennon, and Jesus Christ. Whether or not you consider Jesus a historical or mythical figure is irrelevant in this case; he remains a great example of a Master Teacher regardless.

The significance and qualities of the Master Teacher are important when it comes to understanding what the number 3:33 may be trying to tell you about your life.


Now, for the number 333. Although the number 3:33 can be divided up into 3 and 33, it can also be viewed as the number 333.

333 is the number 3 repeated 3 times. Because of this, the qualities and energies of the number 3 are both heightened and amplified.

333 is overflowing with spiritual meaning. When it appears, it can often be seen as an encouraging sign that you are on the right path – a path that the ascended masters and positive spiritual forces watching over your life would like you to keep pursuing.

Seeing 333 can indicate that your spiritual awareness is growing, and that this is something you should lean into more. Whether it is Tarot cards, astrology or meditation that has pique your interest, seeing 333 can be a sign that it is time to let yourself explore and learn more about spirituality. Ultimately, being in touch with the spiritual side of life is a recipe for a more fulfilling life, so why hold yourself back?

333 can also very much be connected to your overall life purpose, so if you feel that you have been drifting away from or neglecting your true calling for some time, seeing 333, or 3:33, may be your inner self calling out to you and demanding that you refocus your attention and efforts in what is ultimately most meaningful to you.

Angel number 333

When you keep seeing the number 333 repeatedly, you can consider it an angel number. An angel number is a reoccurring number sequence holding an important message for you from the angelic realm.

It is your guardian angel’s job to hold protective wings over you as you lead the most happy, meaningful and fulfilling life possible. Sometimes, all that is required of your guardian angels is that they sit back and observe while you navigate your life with grace, ease and clarity. But at other times, you may need a little more help and guidance. You will typically receive angel numbers when you are in need of guidance, reassurance or both.

Guardian angels don’t appear in physical form and don’t communicate in words – but they do communicate in symbols, including numbers.

Angel number 333 has multiple possible interpretations, but the encouragement it instils is perhaps its most important angel message. When you keep seeing angel number 333, it is a clear sign that your guardian angel believes in you and what you’re doing. Even if you haven’t been seeing a lot of results lately, your guardian angel is telling you to keep going. There are so many examples of projects and ideas not succeeding or finding their audience at first.

With this in mind, seeing angel number 333 may be a pertinent reminder of that the divine laws always apply, and that harvest follows the planting and tending of spiritual seeds. Provided that you are applying the right effort towards a worthy goal, sooner or later reality will yield the fruits you are yearning for. So have faith in the divine laws as well as in the positive energy and efforts that you yourself are putting out.

The Witching Hour

Did you know that the time between 3 and 4 AM is considered the witching hour?

According to European and British folklore, the witching hour, also sometimes called the devil’s hour, is a time when anything can happen. Supernatural forces and beings are said to be at their strongest and most active during the witching hour, and it follows that all manner of supernatural events are much more likely to take place at this time.

In other words, the veil between the mundane world and other realities and dimensions is at its thinnest every night between the hours of 3 and 4 AM. This may explain why many writers and other creatives are night owls and claim to feel the most inspired when they stay up until the wee hours of the morning.

Coincidentally, the witching hour is also the time when most people are in their deepest sleep cycle. Awake or asleep, your mind is in a liminal state during the witching hour.

Now that you know all this, what does it mean if you keep waking up, looking at the clock, and seeing the time 03:33 flashing back at you?

One thing it definitely means is that something is trying to grab your attention. Your spirit guides may find that the witching hour is the easiest time to reach you, when your daytime consciousness has receded somewhat into the background, letting your subconscious self come through.

The divine guidance of number 3:33

By now you should have a pretty good overview over what the numbers 3, 33 and 333 mean, both individually and together. But having all of the puzzle pieces isn’t quite the same as being able to see and comprehend the full picture.

To help you along in your own interpretation, here are some of the key messages and meanings of seeing the number 3:33.

Spiritual awakening

Because the numbers 3, 33 and 333 are all so powerfully connected to the spiritual realm, seeing 3:33 always carries a spiritual message.

Depending on where you are at in terms of your own spiritual growth and development, 3:33 can be a sign of spiritual awakening, longing or discovery, or it can be your soul calling out to you, demanding that you dedicate more time and focus to your spiritual side.

As human beings, we all have a deep and intrinsic need for spirituality, for higher meaning and purpose. Organised religion fulfil this need for some, but for others, it doesn’t sit quite right. But even for those of us who have rejected traditional religious beliefs and views, the spiritual impulse remains.

For a while, focusing on the physical, tangible layer of reality and the many pleasures and treasures that it has to offer can be enough. But after a while, even the most elaborate parties and the fastest cars don’t seem like enough. Something is missing: Meaning and spirituality are missing.

Spirituality doesn’t have to take one particular form. You may find that your spirituality is well catered to by an existing religion or spiritual practice, but it could also be that you will have to piece something together for yourself that feels more authentic and fulfilling.

A sign that you are on the right path

3:33 can be a major sign of encouragement from the universe.

If you keep waking up and seeing 3:33 on the digital clock face, it is tantamount to the universe putting the numbers 3 and 33 right in front of you. All you have to do then is decode the meaning of both of these numbers.

Like we’ve already discussed, the number 3 is the number of the divine realm, and the number 33 is the number of the Master Teacher. When you put these two meanings together, what you end up with is something along the lines of a big thumbs up from the divine creator, or the divine powers that be.

A sign of a twin flame relationship

In some instances, seeing 3:33 may be connected to a twin flame relationship in your life.

Twin flame relationships are characterized by a powerful, almost otherworldly, attraction to and bond with another human being. Twin flame attraction is so powerful that it can feel inevitable, fated.

A twin flame relationship isn’t necessarily meant to last – but it is meant to teach you many things about yourself, and about the world. Your twin flame is essentially a mirror soul, someone who is capable of reflecting a much clearer image of yourself back to you than anything you have previously been able to conceive of.

Seeing 3:33 can be a sign that you are just about to meet your twin flame. Or it could be a sign that you have already met them and are resisting the connection. Either way, the universe is telling you to go ahead, to follow the flow of the energy that is drawing you to this person.

An influx of positive energy

Is your life in need of an energy transfusion? If so, you’re in luck, because a powerful influx of positive energy is one of the things that the number 3:33 can be a sign of.

Because the numbers 3, 33 and 333 are all connected to the divine realm, the energy they bring with them is pure god-light, pure divinity juice. Whether you are in need of healing, inspiration or clarity, the light and wisdom contained in the 3:33 energy is all but guaranteed to work the necessary magic.

A sign for you to let go of past mistakes

Are you holding grudges or beating yourself up over past mistakes?

Seeing the number 3:33 can be a sign for you to let it all go and get rid of the poison. Holding on to pain and resentment can become habitual. It can even be a way of subconsciously continuing to punish yourself for some wrongdoing you feel you committed in the past.

Angel number 333 is asking you to consider what purpose holding onto past grudges and pain serves. Does anyone gain or lose anything as a result of your refusal to let go?

You may not even be aware of how much the past burdens you. You might only discover it, once you decide to let go and release the pain. Only then can you feel the lightness and free up your energy for more constructive and worthwhile pursuits.

3 is the number of the divine realm, and 33 is the number of the Master Teacher, as well as being the number of Jesus Christ, the Christian redeemer. What more indication do you want of the fact that the divine powers that be have forgiven you for your perceived transgressions or mistakes?

Encouragement for you to pursue creative self-expression

If there is one specific number that is associated with creativity and with throwing yourself into the deep end of the unknown, it is the number 3.

3 represents a bold move, a wildcard, a playful effort. The energy of the number 3 simply doesn’t stand still, but is in a constant state of flux, development and curious exploration. You can consider it a reminder of the fact that nothing new can develop if no chances are taken. Boldness and risk-taking are part and parcel of creativity.

Add to that 33, the number of the Master Teacher. This number has a desire to create, and to share what is created.

So, have you been wanting to take up acting, burlesque or playing the piano? If so, seeing the number 3:33 is a clear sign of encouragement telling you to go ahead and pursue it.

A reminder for you to trust your inner voice

Unfortunately, it is sometimes possible to lose touch with our own inner voice and sense of direction.

If your inner voice has been very quiet lately, seeing 3:33 can be a welcome reminder of the fact that your inner self and the greater universe are always communicating with each other. You are never truly lost, never cut off from the source, never forgotten.

Conclusion: This is what it means when your guardian angels keep showing you 3:33

Now that you have learned much more about the key interpretations of the number 3:33, you probably have a much clearer idea of what this number may be trying to tell you.

3:33 has several different and overlapping spiritual meanings, but the most important messages have to do with good fortune and pursuing your true purpose. The good fortune part refers to goodwill and positive outcomes that you have already set in motion and earned. The other part of the equation, moving forward with your purpose, places a responsibility on you to live your truth and spend your precious time on this planet with wisdom and deliberation.

The universe believes in you. It is time that you start believing in yourself.

We all know that one human life can have a tremendous impact on others, so why not be someone who sets an example and uplifts others? You may not be able to guide and influence as many people as the Dalai Lama, but that doesn’t meant that your thoughts, deeds and actions are insignificant. Far from it, you have the capacity to transform every person that you come into contact with, in plenty of positive ways.

This is the role of the Master Teacher, signified by the number 33. You are here to have an impact, to transcend, and to create a better world. How you choose to manifest and fulfil this purpose is up to you. But seeing 3:33 is a clear indication that it is time to really get started, and to keep going.

Seeing 3:33 means that you have a purpose, a sacred mission to fulfil. Not sacred in a religious sense, but in a spiritual sense. When your guardian angels, or whatever other powers that be, keep drawing the number sequence 3:33 to your attention, it is a reminder of the fact that your life purpose is much bigger than you alone.

Whatever your mission in life, your angel guides are prompting you to lean into it with everything you’ve got. Your mission will inevitably take you out of your comfort zone, but feeling uncomfortable and like you are brushing up against your own limitations is the closest thing you can get to reassurance that you are moving in the right direction.

If you have been waiting for a sign, 3:33 is that sign of affirmation and encouragement. Now, what are you waiting for?

Truly understanding 3:33 Meaning could mean the difference between great happiness and misery down the line.
